There is nothing like being able to run a business with just a laptop and a cell phone. To me This is what being an entrepreneur is all about. The freedom of being able to travel while running a business is priceless to me.
I was excited when I first learned that I can run my Network Marketing business from my home using the internet. And I have been doing that ever since. But there is right and a wrong way to use the Internet and Network marketing. So I'm going to give you a few tips on building a successful MLM sales funnel.
How To use the Internet and Network Marketing
Website- The first thing that you will need is a good website. A blog is a great idea for sharing valuable content. The main reason why you should have your own website is: Your website belongs to you. Its Yours. Unlike Facebook or YouTube that can be taken away from you, if you slip up and break one of their rules. So if you don't have your own website or blog invest in one ASAP!
Traffic- Once you have your website/blog in place. You will need to drive traffic to your site. If not, your blog will be like an island in the middle of the ocean. Nobody will know it's there. A great way to drive traffic is using social media sites. Link your website with your social media sites. And when you share info from your website onto your social media sites. Your friends on those sites will: share, like, pin, plus 1, tweet etc.. that content to their friends and driving even more traffic to your website.
Value- Lead with value. I cant stress this enough. Become a problem solver when creating content. You have to give people a reason to opt in to your mailing list or text marketing campaign. This is important when building your Internet and Network Marketing business. So take the time to create valuable content daily.
Auto Responder- Once you have your website, and you learn how to drive traffic to that website. Now you will need a follow up system. This will build a relationship with your list. You might want to share your blog post with them or a motivational video. it doesn't matter. Just build the relationship by giving value.
Build a List- All of the above steps are there so you can do one main thing. Build a list. You will want to build a list so that they can buy your product or service or join you in your network marketing company. One key thing to do, which most people over look is calling your list. When someone opt's in and leaves their phone number. That person is expecting a call. why else would they leave their number? So call them, and continue to build a relationship. Remember People do business with people they know like and trust.
