Marketing a business is essential if you want to have clients and team members. Chances are that nobody ever heard about your business unless you have taken measures to market it.
The hardest part in todays network marketing industry by far is the sheer amount of competition you have. If you just joined a rather new type of opportunity, you have something most marketers never have uniqueness! Just look at the hundreds of health and wellness products in the industry today. While each of them is unique in terms of product features, none of them are in terms of industry.
In fact, the market is saturated with wellness product. I should know because I experienced this first hand. people dont give two hoots about your revolutionary new pills. They are sick of being bombarded with the same old stuff in new packages and a new name.
Marketing your network marketing business is key to getting anywhere. Without it, you might as well save your money now and go back to a paying job. At least that way you know when you get paid.
The following are suggestions if you just got started in mlm and only the beginning. They are also the absolute must if you want to make it big online with your business.
1. Set up an mlm blog or website
You dont have to write about your specific company, unless you want to and are allowed by their TOS. Most mlm marketers actually write about tips and news in the industry to raise awareness about themselves and their business.
Once you have traffic, customers will follow. In terms if frequency, if you have a blog you should aim to publish twice a week minimum to allow search engines to re-visit (spider) your site. For websites this isnt a necessity. However, I do advise to publish a lot of information in order to gain and raise traffic.
2. Get into the habit of visiting industry forums
Forums are a great way to make a name and leave a footprint about your business online. Forums helped me to gain a lot of new subscribers to my website back when I was in mlm. I actually had a great ranked site with thousands of leads and those were mainly from online advertising and marketing efforts.
Another bonus is that forums allow you to establish yourself as a leader in the industry. Imagine where newcomers go to look when they see your helpful forum posts.
3. Submit articles on article sites
Considered one of the best forms of link building and marketing is article marketing. This involves you writing some articles about your industry with a link back to your site.
When people read those and they like what they see, they will often click the link and visit your site. Each visit is another lead and a chance of recruiting a new team member.
