As the Holidays begin to peek around the corner people are beginning to search for ways to make money at home for the up-and-coming gift giving season. Not only that, the recession has hit people hard and I honestly believe that home based businesses are going to explode in the coming years as more and more people look for ways to make money at home.
9 years ago I never would have thought that I would be running a blog dedicated to network marketing training. It is very hard for me to believe that I started my online income journey in 2002. Throughout the course of the past 9 years I have been completely broke (twice). I have sold my personal belongings online so that I could pay my bills and I have used just about every method possible to make extra income online. Now, I own my life and through coaching and network marketing training I teach others to do the same. I have reached the Director level in my primary business and my business is growing daily!
If you are involved with running a small business you should definitely have a blog. With so many business now online, every industry is currently undergoing a massive paradigm shift and the old school ways of doing business are quickly fading into the darkness.
A blog is a perfect platform to build relationships with people from all over the world whatever your small business niche; you could be a chartered london accountant offering online services, a lawyer, project manager or any other professional and you no longer need expensive office space to meet and get to know your clients.
Back in 2001 I started my first network marketing business. During that time I did not have an mlm blog and I barely used email. I built my business using the old school methods such as building a list of friends and family members and walking around malls talking to strangers. Was I very successful? Absolutely not. It takes a tremendous amount of time to building a successful business using the old school methods. Thankfully, the internet has given everyone the ability to build worldwide businesses.
What shouldn’t be a surprise is that the network marketing industry is currently seeing hyper-growth! There are millions of people out of work that are trying to figure out what their “plan B” is and this industry is a wonderful place for people to turn to if they want to start their own business with little out of pocket expenses.
Unfortunately, if 1,000,000 people join the industry in 2012 only 50,000 will come out victorious. There are several factors for these numbers but I think the biggest is the lack of “new school” network marketing training.
As a network marketing coach I have heard every possible excuse as to why people can’t build their business. With the power of internet marketing building an mlm business has never been easier! Attraction marketing has completely revolutionized this industry and people still find excuses on why they can’t be successful in this industry.
I always get a good laugh when I start to talk to someone who thinks they know about network marketing. “What is it, some sort of pyramid scam?” When someone says that I don’t get upset or mad. In fact, I get excited because it gives me a chance to educate someone on an industry that has completely changed my life!
If you are currently struggling in your network marketing business I’m going to guess it’s because you have yet to find the right network marketing training. Have you listened to every CD and read every training manual that your upline has given you? While these training methods can be useful in regards to self development they are not going to magically grow your MLM business for you.
They are outdated and chances are you will not be able to build a large business listening to these old school network marketing training methods.
My Lead System Pro I would like to thank my amazing wife, my two children and my dog Barley….haha!! In all honestly though, I am super pumped that I made the MLSP leader boards for member sign-ups. By no means did I make this blog post to “toot my own horn.” The purpose of this post is to provide motivation to those of you that are struggling to build your businesses.
Are you currently trying to get your posts and blog to rank high in the search engines? Are you struggling to get results? Currently, I am using an incredible online social syndication platform known as Tribepro to get 2500-3000 powerful social syndication backlinks to my articles, videos and blog posts. However, there is a BIG piece of the puzzle missing from Tribepro that I have found!
It is amazing to see how the network marketing industry has changed over the past ten years. I joined my first network marketing company back in 2001 and from the very beginning I was told to market my business to my friends and family members.
Once my warm lead list dried up I was told to wonder around shopping malls looking for prospects. As I’m sure you can imagine, this marketing strategy did not get me very far. Honestly, it absolutely sucked!
It was not until early 2011 that I realized that I needed to start marketing my business online. The old school ways of marketing were a thing of the past. I looked high and low for an online marketing strategy and then I stumbled across My Lead System Pro. My life and business have changed ever since!
