What do you think is the #1 reason why people fail in network marketing? If your answer is traffic then you’re right, but let me explain!
Are you ready for this? What is the first thing that come into mind when someone mention home-based business? Let me help you with this a little bit! People think about: financial freedom, make money online, working from home, no commuting to an office, been able to travel, been able to take vacation, and so one.
Yet, how many you think would be able to achieve those dreams? Not many, but do you know why? Well, most people think that starting an online home-based business is a get-rich-quick scheme and that’s not true. Some gurus do promote network marketing as such but in reality network marketing is not a get-rich-quick game. If you are going to start a network marketing business then you must think of it as a long term game plan.
Not thinking of network marketing as a long term plan is one of the reason why people fail in this business. Some gurus teach you to make a list of your friends and families to pitch your business opportunity, right? Well, let me tell you right now that this does not work. If you are building a business solely on the expectation that your friends and families are going to join then I must tell you to stop right there.
Network marketing is about numbers. I’m pretty sure you can agree with me that you don’t have enough friends or relatives to get to those numbers. Not only that, maybe your friends or relatives are not even interested in your business opportunity. If you persist you might lose them because they might get tired of you trying to pitch them all the time.
Remember, almost all home-based business opportunities are about network marketing. Keep in mind those 2 words: NETWORK and MARKETING. You need a network then you need to advertise. Therefore, you have to think of a game plan if you decide to get involved in network marketing. Your game plan should include advertising. You will have to either set it up yourself or join a team that already have it set up.
Even when you join a team that have team advertising or traffic coop setup, you cannot just rely on that to build your business. If you are truly serious about building your own network marketing empire then you need to learn how to drive traffic to your sites, affiliate links, lead capture or landing pages. Your family, friends, and co-workers won’t works. Yes, I said it! They don’t work. As of matter of fact you need to be careful not to bother those people about your opportunity if you want to keep the relationship going.
Let me clarify something here! I am not saying that you cannot talk business with them. Because, if they come asking you what you do then this is an opportunity for you not to miss. But, this only happen when you are already doing good with your business. They become curious and want to know how you are able to make so much money working from home. Then this is your opportunity to pitch them about your business.
Notice that I told you that you are to be already successful in your business before you can pitch your friends and families. But the question remain how can that happen if i can’t pitch them, right? Well, this where learning how to do online marketing or internet marketing come from. See, the idea of working from home for the most part is always about knowing how internet, affiliate, and network marketing works.
There is always a learning curve for anyone who want to succeed online. Sometimes you might have to learn how to use tools like autoresponders, landing pages, lead capture pages, or even learning some basic HTML coding skills. Yes, always learning become the normal part of your life if you want success.
