It seems pretty clear that everything has changed in MLM with the new economy.
Online MLM or Attraction Marketing has swept through the industry over the last couple of years. Today we’ll take a look at how things have changed due to the recession or ‘new economy.’
There is a continuous (and fairly irritating) debate about what we should do in MLM to build our business these days.
Many Network Marketing professionals say we should stick to tried and tested methods such as making a list of candidates and calling them about our new business.
Some of the new online Network Marketers wrinkle their noses up in disdain and almost spit at you if you as much as dare suggest that strategy.
So what’s the best way to build your MLM business in this new economy?
I think we have come a long way and it is now possible to generate free leads every day for your business with purely online methods – If you have an effective MLM ATTRACTION MARKETING FUNNEL in place!
If not then all you are doing online when you zoom around Facebook bumping into people, is the same as you do offline! That’s ok if it works for you.
I prefer to know that I have a system in place that my team can plug into and use to generate leads online, and that prospects can check out our MLM even if we’re not glued to our computers all day long networking.
If you happen to be out in the real world having a coffee with someone you know and like why would you not mention that you have a great home business?
The only reason I can think of is if you don’t think it’s all that great! (If that’s the case then find a new one that you can be proud of)
People are desperate for a financial solution so in this new economy it is not the time to be an undercover MLM agent!
A common desire of people joining Network Marketing is to help others succeed. Keep that in mind and remember that your MLM opportunity could indeed change someone’s life.
Anyhow the point being online and offline work equally well if you want them to, but its all about the way you operate. Are you a Network Marketing professional both on and offline?
I am as bored as you probably are of hearing all the hype about how to generate 1 zillion leads a day ‘effortlessly’ blah blah blah.
On the other hand I’m also bored of hearing that we can’t duplicate online with social media and online methods. You just watch me!
It is madness. Social Media is here to stay and it is our online neighbourhood, so we had better learn to play nicely and instead of lobbing vampires at each other why not build our financial security instead?
In this new economy I feel it is our obligation to notify people we care about of what we are doing. You don’t have to ‘pitch’ them and they don’t have to join for goodness sake! Just let them know.
I’ve never bought into all that hype about ‘losing friends and family,’ etc. If you don’t have good training on invitation and prospecting skills then get some!
If you don’t have good friends then ummmm… look for some who will support you in your quest for an abundant life.
There is so much good MLM training available. Visit RandyGage.com or Eric Worre at NetworkMarketingPro.com and learn how to invite people to review your MLM without begging or crying.
There really is no need for all that drama.. honestly.
3rd party tools (CDs, DVDs, Websites, 3 Way Calls, Live Business Presentations) can all deliver the message for you.
You don’t have to be the message – just the messenger.
I highly recommend setting up your own online MLM funnel but please don’t buy into all this hype about not talking to anyone you know.
As with everything there is a correct way to do things so make sure you’re getting the training you need to be an attractive marketer both on and offline in this new economy.
