Online MLM Network Marketing Starting Point…

If you are struggling with your MLM network marketing business and wondering where to start, this post will certainly help you to get started.

This post came about as a result of a conversation I had with one of my leads. [HINT: I call all my leads]

This is what he basically told me.

“I am in XYZ MLM business, I’ve been doing all the lead generation methods my up-line told me, I want more leads but I don’t have any money to spend on leads.”

 

Sound familiar? This is basically everyone else’s story as well.

 

Anyway my response:

Online MLM Start Here:

The number one thing you need to have when you start your online marketing is a way to capture your leads. I am sure you have heard this time and time again that MONEY IS IN THE LIST.

At the time most MLM distributors come online they want everything pretty much for free. I do understand at this point you have pretty much wasted all your financial resources in unsuccessful marketing methods.

But get this:

If you are want to be successful in your business you must be prepared to INVEST some money and the investment that I am talking about is not about wasting money like you probably did by buying useless business opportunity leads.

Ok, so getting back to the number one investment you need is to invest in email marketing program like Aweber or Get Response.

There are many features that I am not going to discuss here because you can easily look them up on their website here…

Why should you start your online MLM by investing in email marketing program?

  • You can create a web form to capture contact information of your target prospects
  • You can post the web form on various locations online. For example – on your Facebook fan page, on your blog, on your capture page or squeeze page
  • Easy communication with your prospect to build a relationship with them by providing valuable information your audience is looking for.
  • Send your newsletter to thousands of people with a click of a button.
  • Have an automatic follow up system by way of email autoresponders
  • Track your email performance – eg: see what time of the day is best to send your emails, %ge of people opening and clicking your link to name a few.
  • Test your headlines
  • etc…

So, my advice is if you are starting with online MLM the first step is to get your email marketing system. Simply put without that you will not have an online business.

So, don’t wait if you are serious about building your MLM business online just go ahead and invest in this email marketing system

Hope you are now clear on your starting point of your online lead generation. If you would like more helpful posts like this one please comment and share.

    Awesome Post Damayanthi,

    You hit it right on the head with this one. An Auto-Responder has to be the most powerful tool ever created when it comes to Online Marketing. Being able to build relationships with hundreds of thousands, possibly even millions of people at one time with the click of a button is what I call leverage.

    And what’s most important is what you said in the second paragraph. It’s a must to get on the phone with your leads when they opt in, because that really separates you from the pack and what I like most is that people are really exacted to hear from you. Thanks for sharing.

    To Your Infinite Success,
    Marquel Russell

    Hey Marquel,

    Thanks for your valuable comment. You are so right we need to connect with our prospects as much as possible. If they gave a phone number why not call them. It is a different attitude when they are waiting for your call.

    Hi Damayanthi – you’re absolutely right. Having an autoresponder is critical to efficiently and effectively staying in touch with your customers, prospects, leads and team. Also, tracking who’s opening your emails is a great feature as well.

    Calling your leads is SOOO IMPORTANT. It’s amazing how many people don’t do that..

    Thanks for the great info!

    Great Post Damayanthi,

    You deliver the goods on why building a list is so important when you are starting in online MLM Network Marketing. You make a great point on tracking.

    Thanks,
    Bill

    Thank you Cezar, yes I know calling leads is so important. Once you start, you enjoy calling leads.

    Thanks Bill. Appreciate you 🙂

    Thank you Damayanthi for being up front and honest! Yes, it does take time and money to start your business. Heck, it takes more money to start an offline business.

    So many people are lead the wrong way and are shocked and surprised of how much work and money it takes to be successful. I’m not talking tons of money…just a fixed comfortable budget for your business.

    Email marketing is a wonderful way to build relationships. One must be consistent at it and not give up. Just keep on getting those emails in their in box, and eventually people get to know you and start trusting you. The rest is history!

    Thank you for a stellar post,
    Donna

    Hey Damayanthi, it is so true that the MONEY IS IN THE LIST and that any business requires an investment of time and money. Great post on the importance of autoresponders.

  • Ashley Porter June 13, 2012, 2:34 pm

    I agree Damayanthi – without an email autoresponder software it is virtually impossible to effectively keep in touch with potential prospects and customers in a way that will save time and money – this is a must have for any online business owner.

    Hi Donna, thanks so much for your comments.
    So true off-line businesses cost a hell of a lot more than online businesses.

    appreciate your comments

    Hi Sigrid,
    Money is in the List for sure.
    Thanks for stopping by my friend
