Blogging to Build Your Network Marketing and MLM Business

“What is the best way to start a network marketing business that has the greatest potential to succeed?”

“How can I build my MLM downline as quickly as possible?”

“Who do I contact to talk about my direct selling business opportunity when I’ve already exhausted all of my friends and family?”

“When does network marketing actually become a HOME-BASED business? I’m running around like crazy meeting both people I know as well as strangers to introduce my MLM opportunity.”

“What exactly do I do when I know little to nothing about creating websites, Internet marketing, or online selling?”

“Isn’t there a better way to build my downline, my organization, and my bank account?”

Many people have come to me with these and similar questions. My answer to them is always the same. It’s a four-letter word (but a good one):

What is Network Marketing and How Can You Make Money From It?

Network marketing, MLM opportunities, and direct selling (all pretty much the same thing, for the most part) have a very simple but ingenious idea. They rely on independent distributors like YOU offering a company’s products for sale, as well as finding other people to sell these same products.

The challenging part of this has always been finding the people – creating your “downline” of buyers and sellers. Your downline consists of both the people that buy the products you are selling (in which case you can make a significant commission on product sales), as well as the people that also sell the products that you are selling (in which case you make a “residual income” on THEIR sales). And it keeps going down by levels, thus the term, “multi-level marketing” or MLM …

The Importance of Your MLM Downline in Your Network Marketing Business

Any business, whether in the network marketing world or otherwise, depends primarily on the quality of two things – (1) the products/services that are offered and sold, and (2) the human talent that fuels the business. These two components are absolutely essential and indispensable for ALL businesses. Everything else is secondary.

If you are in the network marketing and direct selling business as an independent distributor, I hope you choose well the company you work with. If you have chosen well, then you should be confident of the products or services that you are selling and marketing on behalf of that company. If so, then you’ve already taken care of the first essential aspect of your business.

As a network marketer, developing the second essential aspect – the human talent – is largely up to your own efforts. The human talent that will fuel your success is your multi-level marketing (MLM) downline …

Just Plug And Chug Your Way to Online Network Marketing Success

I didn’t learn much in high school chemistry class. In fact, I learned almost nothing. And I know even less about it now, if that’s possible. But one valuable thing I did learn from my high school chemistry teacher is to just “plug and chug.”

What exactly does that mean? Well, in the realm of chemistry, I still don’t really know. But in the classroom of wealth-building, I think I’ve figured it out.

If you can learn something useful from people who have done something successfully before you (and they are willing to tell you exactly how to do it), especially if it has to do with making money and creating wealth, then just plug in the formula and chug …

If You Build It, Will They Come (To Your Network Marketing Website)?

“If you build it, they will come.” This line is adapted from an old movie, “Field of Dreams.” But it can apply just as well to the website/blog you’ve built for your network marketing business.

The quick answer to the question, “If you build it, will they come?” is “Sorry, NO.” Just having a website up is not enough. You will need to use some tools of Internet marketing to make sure that “they will come.”

There are many tools that you can use to promote your website and actually get visitors to view your network marketing and direct selling opportunity. Remember, though, that it’s not enough just to have people come to your site. You actually want them to perform some kind of action, whether it’s signing up for your email newsletter, contacting you directly through your site’s contact form, reserving a place on your next webinar, or even joining your network marketing organization on the spot.

So everything you put on your site should be directed towards the goal of having your visitors perform some type of positive action.

But that’s a bit besides the point. We’ll get into that aspect of it later. For now, we need to at least get some eyeballs to your website/blog …

How Much Time Should Be Devoted to a Network Marketing Business?

Time is, by far, the most precious commodity we have, so good question. The answer to this question is that you can choose to spend as little or as much time on building your network marketing business as you wish. And your results will likely reflect your choice.

Network marketing, direct selling, and MLM have traditionally been known as a business model that you can start in your spare time and gradually grow into your primary source of income and wealth. This can absolutely be the case, as it has been for many people.

But we are of the mindset that if you really want to succeed in anything in life, especially wealth-building, you need to take it seriously and treat it like a real business. Anything worth doing is worth doing well. And if you want to make anything a success, you need to give it the attention it deserves …

Does a Network Marketer Need Sales Skills?

One of the biggest misconceptions about network marketing and direct selling is that you need to be a really slick and skilled salesperson in order to succeed in this business. After all, you’re selling your products and business opportunity to other people, most of whom are not in your family, right?

Well, it can help if you are a superstar salesperson. But it’s truly not necessary. And if you don’t even have an ounce of sales skills in you at the moment, you shouldn’t be worried at all. Many of the most successful network marketers wouldn’t be able to tell you the difference between a USP and a CRM …
