Despite what many have said, network marketing isn’t dead. Many of the old school network marketing tactics have been put the rest. The whole idea of pestering your friends and families to make sales has been put out to pasture. If anyone suggest this as a method that you should do, run away from them. The problem with network marketing is that there isn’t any real sales training. They take anyone who can pony up the entry fee and set them off to sail. Most people sink and never make any money and only a few actually earn money.
The success stories all come from the small percentage of people who have great sales skills or who are extremely motivated. A better way to approach network marketing is to only choose programs that you truly believe in. Ask yourself if they have products and services that are actually useful? Do they have products and services that are easy to sell?
If you can’t ask yes to either one of these questions, don’t bother joining that program. You want to run an ethical and useful business that you can be proud of. It is often the case that people fail because they are promoting products they don’t believe in and products that don’t have any value.
Even with a great product you need some idea about how to market it. Make sure that you have a product that will pay you for sales and not just for getting people to join the business opportunity. My advice to focus mostly on selling the product.
Where should you promote your product? The internet is where you should promote your product. You don’t want to pester people all day and the Internet allows you to reach more people than you could meet in person.
If you are new to internet marketing, focus on article writing, video marketing and SEO. These forms of marketing will give you the best bang for you buck. Be warned that it takes awhile to earn money using these methods but once you have everything setup you will automatically have sales coming in.
Work on learning more about internet marketing and you will find that you have a skill set that will help you earn money in any business and with any niche. These are the type of skills that will make you rich and successful.
As you can see, network marketing isn’t dead but the old annoying methods to promote MLM programs are. Now days, it is unnecessary to annoy your friends and family to make sales. You can also use the internet to research programs before you join. Also it is important to only promote programs that have value. Programs that have value basically sell themselves and it keeps you honest.
The best way to promote you products is over the internet and you should spend time perfecting your internet marketing skills because they are the type of skills that will help your market and make money in any business.
