3 Strategic Steps To Build Your Network Marketing Business Online
Are you tired of prospecting friends, family, and co-workers, doing home meetings, endless cold calling, mall hunting, and being accused of selling that “pyramid thing”?
If you are like I was, you are ready to take your network marketing business online.
I’ve done all the “old school” techniques in my network marketing journey. I’ve called all my friend, family, and co-workers and finally become a member of the NFL club – you know the No Friends Left club!
On the advice of a cross line friend I even called over 300 realtors over 3 months with a “cold calling” campaign – zero results.
I attended my company big events, regional events, drove thousands of miles and ended up $23,519 in the hole. I was ready to quit my network marketing business.
I was hearing the “I told you so” from everyone and it was getting embarrassing.
Then one day my wife and I for the first time in a long time talked honestly about what was going on. She’s always supported me but was tired of seeing me struggle and getting no results. She told me there has to be a better way so I took a leap of faith and started searching for answers!
Then one day at my grandson’s Lacrosse game my daughter told me she was looking into a new master mind group who taught network marketers how to build a network marketing empire completely online and that day I signed up and my journey into Online Network Marketing began.
Long story short, after years of struggling and thousands of dollars spent, I thank God for the mentors I was introduces to, because they literally saved my life!
My new mentors taught me step by step how to build a business online and now I’ve fired my boss, quite my job, and gone full time into my network marketing business. Now I devote time paying it forward and showing others how they can take their network marketing business online and let go of everything they currently don’t like about building the “old school” way.
So, if you want to build online, here’s what you need to know…
First of all, the benefits are ENORMOUS!
- You can generate fresh, qualified leads from wherever (and whenever) you please.
- You can end rejection forever by only talking to people who are highly interested in your offer.
- You don’t need to drive long hours, your startup costs are low, and your business works for you 24/7/365 – without you ever having to pick up the phone!
The best part is you don’t need to be “techie” or particularly good with computers to get started.
There are three steps required to take your business online, let’s go over them…
People have different attitudes towards personal development and mindset.
My advice to you is simple and practical.
First, get comfortable with the unknown.
Basically, you need to be present and respect the journey.
You’re not going to learn everything you need all at once.
When you go online, you’re learning a whole new skillset.
Quite frankly it is a new profession.
Think of it this way…
When you learn a new profession, what do you usually do?
Well, you go to school for four to five years.
I can promise you you’re not going to have you do that, and it probably won’t take four to five years, anyway.
However, if there was a school of building a business online, it probably would take a few months to get through all the coursework, so be prepared for a learning curve.
Don’t try to learn everything at once.
The key is to focus on what’s in front of you.
Master, implement, and move on to the next skill.
You have to get comfortable with not knowing what’s ahead.
There’s always going to be a new technology you don’t know about, and new skills you have to acquire.
Keep that in mind and expect the unknown.
But the other issue is even bigger and comes up often: It’s the ability to overcome adversity and not give up.
By going online…
Do certain parts of building your business become easier?
That’s the purpose of going online – to create more efficiency, so you’re not doing things that waste time, or you simply don’t like doing.
- No more driving around town “hunting” prospects.
- No more meeting people one-on-one and racking up those coffee bills.
- Or following up over and over and over again after they’ve seen “the plan.”
That said, you are still going to face adversity.
You’re still going to hit roadblocks and get stuck.
If you’re somebody that easily gives up when you encounter those types of things, then don’t even try.
You have to respect the new skills you’re learning
And be willing to face the tough times.
Respect means when you actually get stuck, you don’t give up.
You push through and become resourceful.
An important part of the process is to know where to go to find answers, or knowing who to ask to find answers (we’ll cover that later).
This is vital to your success.
The last thing is…
You’ve got to overcome peer-pressure
There are people, including some of your upline, who are not going to approve of you doing something that’s different from what they recommend within the company.
Many times your upline doesn’t want you to explore other methods.
It’s normal for people who have not built their business online to have a negative attitude.
Human beings fear the unknown, which is why the first thing I told you was: master the unknown.
It’s natural for people to fear what they don’t know
Not only is it natural to fear the unknown, it’s natural to attack it.
Your upline – even if they have a massive downline – if they haven’t built a business online, they’re talking about something they don’t understand.
Building a business online is completely different than building it offline.
It requires different methods and an entirely different skill set.
Building offline is something you should admire and appreciate and having done it, I do respect anyone that’s built this way.
But if a leader hasn’t done anything online, and are talking ‘smack’ to you, they have no credibility in my book.
Respect them for their success, but don’t give in to their doubt and fear.
In today’s day and age, more and more leaders in the network marketing profession are accepting the fact that you can build on social media and use Internet marketing, because the proof is in the pudding.
You see people everywhere who are successfully building online.
The proof is all around you.
You don’t need the approval of anyone
Move forward no matter what others say to you.
Our master mind community provides a lot of support and we offer you advice based on your personal situation.
I’ll tell you how to receive more information at the end of this article.
This sums up mindset:
- Master the unknown.
- Learn how to overcome adversity (and not be a quitter).
- Learn to overcome peer pressure.
Those three things will come up, but now you can be prepared.
The next thing you need is a…
You need a blueprint you can implement.
Something you can reference along the way.
And there are a couple of different ways you can build your business online.
First, there’s the…
Active social media recruiting
…which you can actually implement right away.
With social media recruiting, you honestly don’t have to learn much of anything.
All you need is a personal account on Facebook (no website required), and some sort of process – maybe provided by your upline or somebody in your company – on how to present your opportunity and convert prospects into either buyers or new team members.
You only need to know where to take them, and how to process them.
You can start implementing social media recruiting strategies today.
In fact, this strategy is basically equitable to what you’d do offline, except you’re moving the process online.
The challenge with social media is you’re always busy…
- You’re always posting.
- You’re always engaging.
- You’re always interacting with people.
It produces results, and you can duplicate it, but it’s time intensive.
Most of the time…
People will move beyond simple social media recruiting stuff, because they want to create more leverage in their business and free up more of their time.
And that’s what Elite Marketing Pro (EMP) teaches and has done so for the past ten years.
Speaking of which, if you’re ready to move forward now with building your business using “attraction marketing,” I’d like to invite you to sign up for the FREE 10-Day Online Recruiting Bootcamp, where you’ll gain the knowledge to create an automated selling and prospecting system to attract highly-interested prospects to your product or opportunity online.
The next level of social media is…
Passive social media recruiting
…which is about posting valuable content or information that inspires people to reach out to you and ask you what you’re doing.
In fact, I’ve generated dozens of prospects who reached out to me and asked…
“What are you doing? I want to learn more!”
To be honest I prefer to start a conversation with somebody when they’re reaching out to me.
They are coming to you – instead of the other way around.
Then you’re able to create leverage and scale.
All the things you normally would do with social media you’re now able to scale and accelerate your results.
For this, you’re going to need a Facebook Business Page (aka a Fan Page) and a training and lead generation system like that provided at Elite Marketing Pro.
The idea is people reach out to you by going to your website and submitting their information, which happens 24/7/365 (while you’re sleeping or at Disney World).
They’ll do this in exchange for valuable information you’re promised to give them.
They are then automatically sent all the information they need to get familiar with your business and Elite Marketing Pro provides all the tools to allow you to do this in no time!
By the time you get on the phone, they’re 90% sold!
You only answer a few questions, and they’re ready to get started.
It’s all automatic.
That’s what a “marketing funnel” does.
This is how you passively have prospects come into your business, every single day.
In my business, I have prospects reaching out to me requesting information every day.
There’s no way I can personally talk to every single one of them, so I created a marketing funnel or process that presents the offer to people and it is on auto pilot.
This allows me to take people that are brand new and walk them through a presentation, in an automated way.
That’s essentially what we’re talking about with passive recruiting strategies (which are also referred to as “attraction marketing”).
Now, for the final piece, which is…
I’m going to be upfront. It is very difficult for you to do everything I just described without personal one-on-one help.
Think about it, when you started in network marketing offline, somebody showed you the next steps to take.
The same is true with building your business online:
You need someone to show you a step-by-step blueprint.
The real magic is when you become an Elite Marketing Pro member you receive free one-on-one coaching that ensures you get started right.
EMP knows it’s overwhelming when you’re brand new.
So they take away the worry by having a mentor walk you through everything step-by-step (so you don’t waste time) and your mentor tells you if you’re doing things correctly or not.
This immediate feedback means…
You’ll never feel insecure about what to do next
And you’re always be certain you are using the right flight plan and moving along the correct course.
I know how powerful this is from personal experience.
I’ve spent thousands of dollars trying to build my business without mentorship.
However, once I got the mentorship I needed, it put me on the fast track to achieving results.
The knowledge I’ve learned after joining Elite Marketing Pro has allowed me to fired my boss, quit my job, and now I’m on a flight path to become a seven-figure producer in my home business.
I believe you can do what I’m doing, but…
You have to make the commitment and start with the first step
So if you’ve always wanted to have training that works, and somebody personally help you, I highly recommend you learn more about Elite Marketing Pro by signing up for the FREE 10-Day Online Recruiting Bootcamp.
It’s a video course where my friend, personal mentor, and 7-figure online marketing earner Ferny Ceballos will walk you through taking your business online.
Now it’s possible to build your network marketing business offline, but online is more efficient, allows you to create income quicker and you can run your business from your laptop or smart phone.
And just like this information changed my life, it can change your life as well.
You’ll learn the skills and have the tools to build your business automatically – prospects come to you on a daily basis – and are ready to sign up and get busy.
