Your First MLM Experience
Okay, you've joined your first MLM company. You're all excited because of the many successful people you meet who are willing to share this great opportunity. You love the company's product and you pick up quickly, the compensation plan, of leveraging and / or multiple streams of income.
You attend meetings, read emails, listen to webinars and gather any information in an effort to get up to speed on how to market your product. You're told about making a list of warm bodies (friends, relatives, acquaintances). Be sure and practice the three foot rule (tell anyone within three feet about your opportunity). And, then, there's everyone's favorite – cold calling (contacting people you do not know, by phone, and bugging them to join your group).
So! you, rush in where angels fear to tread, and religiously follow the steps of a dedicated MLMer. You pursue all your warm bodies, and surprisingly, find that no one is interested. Now, you've used up, who you thought would be your strongest allies. It's time to decide if you want to go to the airport and move in on the large groups of embarkees who will qualify for the three foot circle rule. Maybe you're ready to grab a phone book and start dialing numbers at random. But then you realize, nah, that's not really me, I'd rather stick needles in your eyes.
You seriously ponder why others are doing so well and you're not. At some point, you feel you've been had.
Attraction Marketing Web 2.0 To The Rescue
Then, just when you've reached your lowest point, you meet someone who introduces you to web 2.0 Attraction Internet Marketing. This is a new concept in marketing that concerns almost 100% on using the internet to attract prospects. It is designed to teach you, using step by step tutorials, what social marketing tools to use in order to acquire a vast legion of loyal followers.
Naturally, the people who follow your lead are very interested in network marketing. Many are already searching the internet looking for a home based business of their own. This means they will be much more open to hearing about your opportunity than some stranger you approach, who has no interest in what you have to offer. No more cold calls, 3 foot rule or seeking out warm bodies.
The best part is, that those who choose this new method of Attraction Marketing, will also be able to earn a significant income, while attracting prospects to their MLM opportunity.
How can I speak knowledgeably of these two methods of Internet Marketing? I can, because I experienced the very situation I'm writing about.
In any case, I found my Internet Marketing niche along with many others. As it turns out, some of us are just not comfortable in following the traditional methods of networking MLM.
Room For Both
Although it may seem that I hold disdain for traditional MLMer's, nothing could be further from the truth. It was just a method I was not comfortable with. In my estimation, there is room for both methods.
My opinion of why some are good with the traditional approach is because their careers, or distinct personal experiences, lend themselves to the type personality MLM requires. I believe many are involved in businesses that require them to spend much time among the public. These can be real estate representatives, automobile salespersons, finance brokers, etc. They enjoy two advantages, they are associated with people who are use to being sold, and they are viewed by others as people who sell.
I consider myself a social being, and am viewed in that fashion. Usually, people like me for who I am. If I suddenly try to sell them something, they see me as someone different. Immediately they throw up a red flag and close themselves to any kind of sales proposal I have to offer. Once I run out of warm bodies, I'm done.
So! If you're the type of person who is used to communicating one on one, you may enjoy the more traditional approach. However, if like myself and others, you prefer the idea of the new and very effective web 2.0 social media marketing plan, you might want to give it a look
