Are You Struggling in Your MLM Business? – Network Marketing

That is a very hard question to answer for a lot of you, because chances are that you, like 95% of other MLM distributors are indeed struggling in your MLM business.

The sad reality is that most people starting out in MLM are lacking in one very fundamental skill, marketing. As basic as that may sound, it is the truth. After all it’s called Multi Level MARKETING or Network MARKETING.

Pitching your business to unqualified leads such as family and friends is like playing some sort of lottery.

After you tried that strategy for a while you now run out of people to talk to, and you now have a lack of leads. At this point you may even consider buying leads. That also is a losing strategy for most Network marketers.

After trying strategy after strategy trying to find enough leads, you are now starting to spend way more than you make in your business or worse yet, run out of cash.

And I don’t blame you. You can only do what you are being taught by your up line sponsor.

The real sad part is that there are millions of people that are actually looking for what you have to offer, and who would love to work with you.

Yes this is true, but they can’t find you because you didn’t make it easy for them to find you.

They are looking for you or your business on the internet, on Google, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and other sites like that.

To drastically enhance your chances of success in this industry you must focus your attention to the internet. It is no accident that ALL of the major players in any industry have a big presence on the internet. The make sure that they can be found!

While some where slow to adjust to the new market realities of the Internet, they could simply no longer ignore the power of the Internet as a marketing tool, and neither should you.

Generating MLM leads online is becoming easier and easier because there are companies that have built systems for that exact purpose. They are called “lead generation systems”, but they are not all effective. The best ones are the ones that allow you to brand yourself and also allow you to own your leads, so that you are not tied to just their system.

I hope that I was able to shed some light on the situation, as well as some hope, because if you learn how to market on the internet you will no longer be struggling with your MLM business. And with the right system this is a lot easier than you might imagine.

Local Business Internet Marketing – Two Ways to Get Your Business on Google’s First Page

Local business internet marketing strategies can be very effective for local business owners.

When thinking about how to market your business on the internet, it is important to keep in mind that people primarily use the internet for 2 things, content and making connections.

When people conduct an online search they are generally looking for information, a solution to a specific problem, the answer to a question or a person or business to connect with and help them.

Part of your small business marketing strategy should be providing the solution to what people are looking for by creating great content that people can easily find when conducting an online search. This can be done through your blog, website, articles, podcasts, videos and even social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter.

Once people find your content it is up to you to provide a clear and easy way for them to connect with you so you can present your professional services as a way of helping them with whatever they are looking for. You can do this with an opt-in form on your website, a contact form, or simply by having your phone number prominently displayed.

The search engines like Google know that people are searching for content and connections. Their main objective is to present online searchers with the most relevant content available as found by their search bots.

This is done through using key words. Key words are descriptive words or phrases that lets all online uses and the search engines know what your content is about. Thus the search engines connect searchers with relevant sites full of the content they are looking for.

The search engines reward people who provide great, relevant content and connections by presenting their sites high up in the organic rankings. This makes it easier for people to find you, your product or your service. Getting your site or content listed on the first page of Google’s search results can mean thousands of dollars of increased profits especially if you make it to the number one spot.

Another aspect of connections on the internet is to have your sites connected to as many other sites on the internet as possible. Every site that is connected to yours serves as a vote of confidence especially if the sites have similar content. The more links you have, the more votes of confidence Google assumes thus placing your site higher in the rankings.

As a small business owner you want to get your product or service in front of as many people as possible. You can do so by providing great content and many connections on the internet.
