7 Strategies Guaranteed To Bring You MLM Success

When I first started out in internet marketing – incredible though it seems now – I knew nothing about list-building. And as a result I dove into MLM without a clue really and nearly burnt out after 6 months of banging my head against the proverbial brick wall.

List-building is not as easy as every product owner will have you believe, but there are ways of doing it effectively and without burning the midnight oil.

For those of you just starting out, I’ve drawn up 7 points you should focus on for making any kind of MLM opportunity work for you. (Without the head injuries!)

1. Build your network one by one

If you think you can email a few friends – Facebook or otherwise – and build a business network, think again. It just won’t happen. This business, like any other business, takes time and hard work. To some people chatting online isn’t hard work, to some it sucks. If it sucks for you, stay away from network marketing. If you enjoy it, or at least can do it effectively, it’s simply a question of thinking one person at a time, not blasting groups and websites with your link.

Remember, if you can get one person on your side/team, he or she may well be motivated to do the same. With time you will build a solid foundation – or downline – not a bunch of people who wondered how in hell they ever came to have your name in their inbox.

2. Write posts and articles on and around your subject

The more you put out there that informs people about the opportunity you are promoting, the more traffic to your sites and your links. You need to produce content to build your list AND to come across as an expert on your chosen opportunity.

3. Attract interested parties to your squeeze page and free gift

Put up a squeeze page where you offer a gift relevant to your opportunity, so that you can collect names and emails.

4. Build a theme oriented site

Once you’ve build a squeeze page which is specifically geared toward one opportunity, you can build a site that caters for various MLM opportunities. Once again this can help project you as an expert in more than one field. You also benefit from a sort of cross-fertilization of leads, as parties seeking one of your number one opportunity decide to sign up for your number two opportunity.

5. You must remain tenacious and consistent

Most network marketers quit within the first year. Cos it’s tough. It’s not work that delivers instant riches, it feels at times like you’re being sold a lie. But think of this, when the going gets tough, most businesses don’t turn a profit in their first year. You simply have to stick at it. And that means doing one task a day to build your list AND motivate your downline. One hour a day is probably enough. Heck even 30 minutes is better than nothing and keeps you in the loop.

6. There is no real secret to a large downline!

Unless you enter network marketing having just inherited wealth or sold a business for a nice lump sum, the only way you’re going to build a downline fast is by steadily recruiting.  And by encouraging your downline to recruit too. Let me give you an example of what I mean: with the FantaZ (social gaming) opportunity I’m working, I direct traffic to a squeeze page where I not only inform my visitors of this amazing business opportunity that is about to take off, I also offer them customised and customizable marketing tools to help them build their own downline.  Work with your downline members, as most of your growth will come from their efforts. Try to get them to chat with you on Skype or in a Facebook group.

7. Diversify for even greater profits

Once you’ve developed your downline and your contact list, you should market new opportunities to the list(s) you’ve built. Multiple streams of income will take you to the next level and your monthly income will continue to grow. What I tend to do is bring people in on one opportunity, help them get the hang of it, then introduce them to other, perhaps similar, opportunities and products that will help them build their own lists and downlines.

Follow these magnificent 7 and you’ll be mining network marketing gold after about 12 months – sooner if you like hard graft!

The best ways to build a downline in MLM programs like FantaZ

The best ways to build a downline in MLM programs like FantaZ

If you haven’t heard of social gaming yet – July 2011 – you soon will.

If you know how to build a list and network through social media and Skype, you could make a serious amount of money with the Fantaz marketing opportunity

Fantaz is all about playing online games – for cash rewards. Of course many people who join your team will never be interested in playing, some may never have tried, but get caught up in the excitement and have a go.

It’s not enough simply to recruit and have people join your team. You have to follow up and constantly encourage your team or downline to recruit and encourage their downline.

 

Get an autoresponder and build your own list

If you’re new to online marketing and don’t even have a list, the Fantaz opportunity is going to be quite a challenge.

Lead Generation requires a little imagination. Fantaz is a game, so it makes sense to hang out in gaming forums to attract leads. You could join a Facebook group or fan page, or even set up one of your own. You could write an article on the opportunity with a link that attracts leads.

Don’t do any MLM without a squeeze page and autoresponder! This is essential – you have to have a means in place of collecting leads that go to your autoresponder, not just the back office of Fantaz.

With leads of your own secured in an autoresponder you can also update your team regularly with broadcasts, keeping them motivated.

You can also then market to your list – sending them info on similar business opportunities, sounding them out and adding them to your customers’ list.  So they may come in as FantaZ team members, but you want to be able to persuade them to take a look at other opportunities and products. This is how you create multiple streams of income.

This is a chance to develop your personal brand. You may have heard it said on numerous occasions: “People don’t buy the opportunity, they buy… you.” Admittedly, not entirely accurate, but it’s an adage that serves to underline the importance of establishing a rapport and trust with your list – you are the guy who knows where and how to invest in good stuff. If you come across as likeable and trustworthy, people will flock to your Fantaz business.

Too many independent distributors make the mistake of directing people to their company replicated website. You must set up an optin page or squeeze page to stand in front of this company site. For one thing this helps introduce prospects to you – remember personal branding? – and, as already mentioned, enables you to add their names and emails to your autoresponder.

On this squeeze page you create you will have to offer more value than most. When I set up mine I didn’t just blab on about the opportunity, I told visitors that if they signed up under me they’d be getting the same squeeze page they were looking at, plus email copy which they could use to send to their list. So I’m practically doing their job for them!

So straight off the bat, they are likely to appreciate me as a credible leader. I’ve invested in the opportunity AND I’ve invested some of my time in helping them – for no more than a request that I be allowed to mail them – guess what – more useful stuff!
