Internet Network Marketing is well on its way to becoming a household name. There is a revolution going on right now that you may be missing out on. A few years back lets say 2005 network marketers where starting to fizzle out. The main reason is because people got tired of asking family, friends and cold calling people to try and get them to join their business. What I love so much about the internet is it makes the process of building your mlm business much less embarrassing. Yes! I said that!
What finally sucked me into the potential of Direct Selling Businesses was the fact that because of the internet I didn’t have to harass anyone. For me that was a biggy because I didn’t feel like being bothered with someone rolling their eyes and saying to me, ” Isn’t that one of those pyramid scams?”
Once I started getting involved with this industry I naturally gravitated towards something I am passionate about which was Personal Development. I loved the company that I would have marketed it even if it didn’t have a binary compensation plan.
Something happened though, I thought the company would be here for 20 years, but it fell off the map in under 7 years, I worked very hard on building my “business” only to watch my downlineÂ and residual income vanish. That was a real wake up call. So I did what any other good online marketer would do I licked my wounds and got to work building a new business.
It’s funny how things work out, if it wasn’t for that company “selling out” I would have never realized the truth. It is this truth that I now market. You see there are literally thousands of people “trying” to sell all sorts of products online.Â Only a small handful of people actually earn a living online.Â The reason is because so few people are willing to share what they know for free.
I have spent hundreds of hours scouring the internet for free information, 99.9% of it is mediocre at best. People are of the opinion since its online it should be free.Â While I believe that you should share real valuable content for free I also believe you should be paid for what you have learned. So there is a balance you have to create between giving away and getting paid.
If you are serious about wanting to start a business online and you want to save yourself thousands of dollars and time you may want to consider seeking a mentor.Â Do yourself a favor bigger isn’t always better.Â There are super high priced consultants that will tell you the same exact information as someone ofÂ less popularity.
I always like to relate to my martial arts business. I am certainly not the best in world, but I am pretty sure I am in the top 10% of all martial artist globally because only about 10% of the people in the world have what it takes to see their dreams realized.
What this means as an example, if you come into my school I will more than likely be much more skilled than you and you couldn’t prove me wrong. Matter of fact you probably wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between me or my sifu (teacher) because we both will be of much higher skill than you.Â What that means is the only difference for you is who you identify with better, ultimately you will be getting the same information.
The business you choose to market online does matter, but it is not as important as you may think it is. What is more important is the mindset that you have. You see all successful people in the world share the same traits, it is these traits that you must incorporate into your life if you wish to find success.
There is a saying don’t put the cart before the horse and this is also true for internet marketing. It doesn’t matter what you sell, the first thing you should learn is how to sell online.
You could say that you are marketing X product , but the reality is you are selling yourself.
Truth: All these peep’s out there telling you that you can just be an affiliate marketer and make sales without any personal involvement are straight up lying to you. You can make a few sales but you will spend your time and money always looking for new customers.Â Isn’t it better to have repeat business?
Truth: Free information is great, but its only good enough to give you a basic idea of what you should do, always seek expert advice if you want to real scoop… Experts have paid money to learn what they know and they have a right to be compensated for their knowledge.
Internet Marketing is not for the person who is desperate and will be kicked out of their house if they can’t pay their mortgage , internet marketing is for the person who realizes that they are worth more than what their boss is paying them.Â Like all things in life, if you want to learn how to do this stuff you need to be willing to make sacrifices. If you are not, give up right now grab your local newspaper and start looking for a better J.O.B
Hint: All the people who are deciding for the first time that they want to make money online will be looking for someone to help them get started, that someone should be you.
