Once you know some of the key online MLM secrets, the process of building your business over the internet becomes much easier.
Becoming familiar with these principles will put you in company with a dynamic group of online marketers.
This group has used these same principles to build incredible online businesses.
The first secret deals specifically with choosing a target market.
Successful network marketers know that the most receptive audience to their product and company is not their friends and family, but instead it is other network marketers.
Those who have built successful businesses online, have not done so by chasing Sally at the grocery store or Fred at the local tavern.
They have instead focused on people who are already warm to the idea of building a network marketing business, affiliate marketing or some type of similar endeavor.
The process of bringing someone into your business who is already convinced that network marketing works, is much simpler.
You are not required to expend either the time or energy to persuade them of the value of network marketing.
The next secret deals with how a marketer positions themselves in the marketplace.
Those who succeed online position themselves as both an expert resource and a dynamic leader.
They do not attach themselves to a particular company or product, unless it is a company or product that they have personally created.
Choosing to position themselves in this manner, allows them greater flexibility with a wide ranging audience.
This positioning is normally accomplished through a personal branding process by providing generic business building or personal development information to the marketplace.
The marketplace is drawn to the marketer, because they are providing value to other network marketers without the overt pressure to join a business or opportunity.
The third secret of online MLM is list building.
Successful online marketers know that the money is always found in the list.
List building is the real business of the online marketer.
The reason for list building is simple.
A marketing list is comprised of a group of individuals who have agreed to receive ongoing communication from the marketer.
They have at some level attached themselves to the marketer as a resource.
The marketer now has the opportunity to promote a wide range of products and services to the people on that list over and over again.
Ongoing communication with the list is the relationship development mechanism that allows for effective recruiting of new MLM distributors.
Successful online network marketers utilize offers of training or other business building resources as their primary tool for lead acquisition.
The prospect is offered a particular resource at no cost in exchange for their contact information.
From this point, the prospect will receive regular correspondence from the network marketer related to the particular topic of interest.
The next secret is multiple revenue streams.
According to statistics, approximately 95% of the people who are presented with a network marketing opportunity will reject that offer.
Smart marketers recognize that they need to create additional income streams that tap into that large segment of people, so that their income is not based on 5% minority response.
To accomplish this, online marketers utilize a monetized sales funnel process.
This means affiliate products are offered to their prospects on an ongoing basis.
These products are typically training, business building or personal development related.
When a prospect purchases one of these products, the marketer has earned commission on that sale even though the prospect has not joined their MLM business.
Top professionals take this a step further by offering their own products.
This way they are taking immediate 100% profits and further branding themselves as an expert in the field.
The final secret is the back end presentation of the MLM business opportunity.
A successful network marketer incorporates their business into the ongoing dialogue that takes place with their prospects.
This is less of a presentation and more of an alluding to the opportunity.
Often times, no presentation is ever required, because the marketer has established their value as a leader in the eyes of their prospects.
The prospect simply understands that by joining the team of this respected leader, they have a better chance of success in their own business.
By taking the time to master these online MLM secrets, you can build a powerful network marketing business over the internet.
