Most network marketing companies have an offline marketing system and there are a few that has an offline and online marketing system.
The offline marketing system is most effective, it is based on word-of-mouth marketing or relationship marketing.
The online system usually consist of a capture page, to get people to give you their emails and then you have an autoresponder that will send follow up emails for you.
Many people rely too much on online marketing system and wonder why they are not getting the results they want. The trust level has hit bottom when it comes to online marketing, because there are just too many rogue internet marketers who promised many things but didn't deliver! They promise people the moon and left them in the mud!
I would recommend social media marketing where you make friends through facebook, twitter, youtube and other social media. Another popular online marketing is email marketing. For online marketing, you need a good capture page and an autoresponder with your follow up emails.
There are companies that has online marketing that comes with bells and whistle! Many people rely too much on online marketing because of the promise that the system will automatically work for you and you need only a little effort to set it up and you can relax, sit back and let the system work for you!
After investing over $10,000 to learn online marketing, I realized there are too much hype and false promises made by rogue internet marketing gurus at their seminar previews, they will give you a few exceptional testimonials and many of them are half-truths! They promised many things but bottom line, they could not deliver!
That is why these rogue internet marketing gurus could not give a written risk-free 100% money-back guarantee such as this,"If you follow my step-by-step instruction and you do not make the kind of money I promised you, I will refund 100% of your investment in the seminar." If they did that, they would have over 90% of their students asking for a full refund!
You have been warned. Do not look for shortcuts, always go back to the basics of the business which is placing people first before money, having people's best interest at heart, and doing what the top network marketers are doing, meeting people and sharing the business and benefits of the products!
I know there are rogue leaders who train their people to recruit, recruit and recruit, they become heartless recruiting machines! This business is about people and building relationship. Many people do not have a winner's mindset, they are weak in relationship building and communication skill, and that is why they fail in network marketing.
Don't depend too much on online marketing system, this is my advice based on my 22 years of experience, I don't have all the right answers. I can only share what works for me, mini-meetings, big showcase meeting organized by the company and one to one or two to one meetings at a cafe! 95% of my business activities are offline and 5% are online, making friends on facebook, twitter and youtube.
I also use email marketing and invest a little on advertising to drive traffic to my website. Nothing beats a heart-to-heart talk over a cup of coffee!
Success is a process, it is about commitment, vision, belief and persistence, give yourself 2 to 3 years to get good results. 1st year is learning, 2nd year is growth, 3rd year is exponential growth! Again it depends on the number of leaders in your organization.
Love, Learn, Leverage and Live Your Dream!
