Beginner's Guide to Network-Internet Marketing

Thinking of joining a Network Marketing company or starting your own?  Many companies have found this to be an extremely profitable marketing method.  Companies such as Shacklee, GNLD and Amway have been operating this way for more than 50 years.

While many network businesses market themselves as “non-selling” groups, you need to know that selling or “sharing” is essential to a successful career in this type of business.  Fortunately, the Internet can help anyone with a willingness to work hard to be a top earner without strong selling skills.

  • The first and most important step for the beginner is to choose a company that provides top notch training.  This is critical!  And don’t be fooled by thinking that you won’t have to put a great deal of effort into the education side.  While it is possible to position yourself to earn large amount of residual income from your efforts and the efforts of others you sponsor, it will a lot of hard work and will take time.  One of the highest rated Internet marketing education group is MLSP or My Lead System Pro.  Regardless of the network company you choose, you can find the best affordable education here.  We have provided a link to free information here.

  • Second and equally as important is having a constant flow of interested prospects…leads…that you can share your business with every day.  This will become the lifeblood of your business regardless of the company or product you choose.  With an abundance of quality leads, you will be assured of prosperity.  My Lead System Pro is also the industry leader in lead generation programs.  You can click here to familiarize yourself with this very important tool.

There are many products and services available to the new Internet Marketer.  Make sure you choose a company whose products or services you already know and respect or that you would buy yourself. 

Be sure that there aren’t territory restrictions.  The Internet has opened up the world’s population to your product or opportunity so you shouldn’t join a company that limit’s your audience. 

Make it a point to work with a company that will provide a mentor or coach to help you with the training and advice you will surely need.  Regular education sessions and webinars will be invaluable as you move forward.  Mastermind groups can also provide brainstorming and encouragement.  Most companies won’t require you to have experience or qualifications for you to join but the community connection is so important.

There are several types of companies in the marketplace but they really break down into 2.  The first is a product based company where something is sold or purchased and often consumed.  Companies in this category are Amway, Shaklee, Zija and others and will require a small to medium size buy in and many require their distributors to ship or deliver the merchandise.  Make sure you understand this element before joining.  The second type of company is a service company where services such as technology, education, training, etc. are offered.  Companies such as MLSP, Talk Fusion, Empower Network and others provide tools and education.  In this category, the initial investment is small with a monthly fee for continuing updates and information.
Network Marketing requires a lot of energy and patience but the success stories are many and the industry is constantly creating tremendous success stories. 

Let’s sum up the positives and negatives.
