Social Marketing For Free Network Marketing Business Leads and Traffic

Friday, November 29, 2013

Everyone wants something for nothing. It's true. In a Network Marketing business, it is no different. Why is it, then, that we still think we have to pay out loads of money, particularly when it comes to business leads, to make money? Well, there are a lot of business opportunities out there that would like you to think you must pay to play. You can get plenty of things for free if you just take the time to look around.

We all want to believe that because we think our Network Marketing opportunity is great, so will everyone else that sees it. That belief alone will not help us generate Network Marketing business leads. That still doesn't mean we can't learn how to market our Network Marketing opportunity for free. That reminds me...your prospects have to be able to find you on the Internet in order to become your business leads!

So, before I get off on a tangent, I want to state that you CAN expect to get tons of business leads and traffic to find you on the Internet, without spending any money at all!

Start Getting Free Business Leads with Social Marketing.

Social Marketing is a form of Internet marketing that attempts to reach marketing goals by communication and participation in various Social Media markets such as MySpace,Facebook, YouTube; and bookmarking sites like Digg, StumbleUpon, Squidoo, and others, like Blogs.

What this means is that you can change the way you obtain business leads for your Network Marketing business opportunity, and remove some stress from your life. Be more social; take time to learn new Internet Network Marketing training concepts, and spend less money by learning free methods of attracting business leads to you, instead of paying for them, or hounding them. Think about what a unique tool this could be for your Network Marketing business!

How to start Attracting Free Business Leads:

By using Social Marketing methods, and socializing on social media sites to attract leads to you instead in hunting for them, you can enter the Social Media Sites and set up house with this new Internet Network Marketing style. This is a form of Attraction Marketing, which is the practice of attracting pre-qualified prospects, or business leads, to find what it is that you are offering on the Internet. So get started on setting up some new social marketing sites and make some friends! Try those listed above, or there are tons of other sites to choose from.

How Does Social Marketing Bring You Business Leads?

Just think of the extremely successful people you know in Network Marketing...what is different about them? In most cases, they are extremely likable and charismatic; some may say...lucky. People are drawn to them like a moth to a flame. Business leads just seem to appear. I think that's the key...business leads come to them! They've established themselves as a "likable leader". I doubt they chase any prospects, or pay for them.

That's the way I want you to think...that success comes easily to you by just being yourself. You are already a leader. Your prospects just need to know "who" you are...without your "sales hat" on. You can do all this with Social Marketing; on sites like FaceBook, MySpace, YouTube, StumbleUpon, and others. Work on being a friend and sharing your knowledge, but in a giving way, and not selling. People usually do business with people they like and trust. Business leads will be attracted to you! Doesn't that sound a lot less stressful? And, it doesn't cost you a dime!

Next: To learn techniques on how these Social Media sites work best for business and Internet Marketing, just search the Internet for free training on Internet Network Marketing. You can find valuable training information at a support site for Internet Network Marketing trainees. I found that I really needed this type of support to keep my training on track when I was just starting out as an Internet Marketing Coach.

You can quickly learn how to set up these sites correctly and then learn how to get business leads and traffic to find your sites without sending unsolicited network marketing information. You can find tons of free Internet Network Marketing training on how to learn Social Marketing in order to help prospects, or business leads, find you and your business opportunity.

Once these wonderful, free business leads start coming to you, you must have a way to find out who's interested in what you are offering. You need to have a "lead capture page" in place in order to capture the information of those who have "asked" for more information, or to be kept informed. After all those years of verbally bludgeoning people over the head to pay attention to your network marketing business opportunity, they simply ask to be associated with you, the leader! It's a beautiful thing! I initially joined a free Internet Marketing training class to help me set it all up.

Last: There are Internet Network Marketing coaches out there, like myself, that enjoy teaching how to successfully bring in free business leads for your Network Marketing business. We are all beginners at some point, in something. And, it's much easier to learn from someone willing to share what they've learned, than to stumble around and learn everything the hard way. I have plenty of my own examples to share about that subject!

Just remember the principles about being yourself, having fun, making friends, and presenting your Network Marketing business opportunity in a giving and "Attractive Marketing" manner. And don't forget the Golden Rule, "Treat Others as You would Like to be Treated".

10 Simple Ways to Grow Your MLM Or Network Marketing Business Online

Tuesday, November 26, 2013

Building your Network Marketing business online is not necessary but typically at some point in your MLM journey you will find yourself out of leads and your warm market as you know it exhausted. This of course brings up the fact that you never actually run out of leads or your warm market. I find when people on my team hit this wall they just need to change their perspective. One way to do this is to take another approach to attracting new leads for your MLM opportunity. Here are 10 simple ways to grow your MLM or Network Marketing business online that anyone can implement:

1) Facebook - Make sure to update your profile and let people know you have a business. When you connect with old friends send them a message ask them to call you to catch up. Just like any meeting ask them questions, learn what has been going on in their life. When they ask about you share what you have done since your last conversation and talk about what is really exciting in your life now! (MLM, Network Marketing, or Direct Selling opportunity)

2) Twitter - Twitter is a virtual gold mind for leads and resources. Follow people with your same interests and engage them in conversations. Conversations lead to site traffic and site traffic leads to more leads for your Network Marketing business.

3) Linkedin - Network Marketers have a huge opportunity on Linkedin! It's not about spamming people with your opportunity but looking for good connections that you can learn more about and convert to a live conversation. Learn about their business, find out how you can help them, and tell these connections how they can help you!

4) YouTube - YouTube is the #2 search engine online! If you are passionate about your Network Marketing, MLM, or your Direct Selling opportunity start making videos! Talk about all aspects of your business and opportunity. Each video should be entertaining or educational, people want to be entertained or they want to learn something. Don't be boring and make sure to have fun. You will attract people with your passion!

5) Craigslist - Free adds! Need I say more? Be creative, think outside of the box. If you have a weekly opportunity meeting make sure it's listed on Craigslist. Try different ads, be authentic, and test, test, test. Determine which adds result in new leads for your business opportunity and then expand on these ads.

6) Plaxo - This is a great online address book that is used by business professionals. I think of it as an old school social network but it works. Setup your profile and engage each new connection! Start out by sending a friendly email. Please note, friendly emails do not include your Network Marketing link, video, or pitch. Always remember you want to date the person a few times before asking them to marry you. Too many Network Marketers try to sign someone up before their prospect even understands what it is you do.

7) Forums - Look for forums about your MLM business and things you are interested in. Once you find the right forum online that you enjoy make sure you become active, leave comments and be helpful. In your signature have your opportunity link or better yet your blog or personal website. When people get used to seeing your comments they will naturally click on your links to learn more about you and your business.

8) Yahoo Answers - Very under used but a great way for you to be a category expert. Create a profile and start answering questions. This is a great way for people to discover you and want to learn more about what you do. You can easily answer a few simple questions a day and attract new leads for your business.

9) MLM Lead System - I can't recommend the value of having a great Network Marketing Lead system. By lead system I mean a system that you can create your own lead capture pages, add leads to your auto responder like Aweber or Get Response, and funnel all the leads from the above online marketing activities. Growing your MLM online requires you to have a great lead capture system.

10) Blogging - Create your own blog and write often. Your blog can me about your company, you, your industry or all three. A blog is a hub where you can drive traffic to. Similar to your MLM Lead System but different as this will be a place for you to continue to write and attract new leads over a long period of time. If you want to be successful in growing your Network Marketing business online having a blog is essential.

You don't have to do all 10 of these strategies to successfully grow your MLM online but each of these strategies will make a huge difference in attracting new leads to your business opportunity. If I was to pick two to focus on it would be setting up your MLM Lead System and creating your Blog. Over time these two strategies alone can propel you to online success.

Information Marketing is the Hottest Internet Trend in Home Business

Friday, November 22, 2013

After investing most of my time, wealth and education in career building as a scientist with several honors, awards and peer reviewed publications to feather my cap but with no substantial money in my bank account, I stumbled upon a story of a brick and mortar business man who from being broke rose to amass more than one million dollars in just 15 months in an Internet home business. It caught my eye and I seriously began to pay attention to the hottest trends in the home business arena.

Knowledge is the most valuable resource

Today, knowledge is the most valuable resource that is marketable. The exponential growth of Internet worldwide has created a huge market of more than 1 billion users. Information Marketing or Webucation has emerged as the 'Mega trend' (www.forbesarticle.info) converging on more than $150 billion market. Online degrees and online informational tutorials are the talk of the day connecting people from any corner of the globe through advanced technology.

Major global trends are driving the Industry

More than 8-10 major global trends are currently driving the Information Marketing Industry including imminent retirement of baby boomers looking for financial freedom, globalization of economy, broadband internet technology facilitating streaming video and audio information exchange, online marketing, lean workforce in corporate world due to outsourcing of most of the technology jobs overseas, the ever increasing pursuit of quality life by the majority of workforce, etc.

As retirement approaches, uncertainty pervades and more than 90% of the workforce is coming on the internet looking for a home business opportunity. Baby boomers constitute a large fraction of those approaching retirement age and they are actively seeking to secure financial freedom. Information is the driving force to today's online market. Internet and broadband phone technology is revolutionizing information exchange on a global basis with direct impact on Information Marketing Industry.

As the jobs are getting scarce and workload getting heavier in the corporate world, more and more people are seeking financial freedom and quality of life to go hand in hand. Work-at-home moms and home education of children are on the rise in attempts to raise both quality of life and standard of education in addition to providing for a safer environment to bring up the kids.

Position yourself in front of the emerging Mega trend

The best way to capitalize on an emerging mega trend is to position yourself in front of the trend at the earliest signal like Microsoft workers did a few years ago. Having the right information at the right time is an inevitable advantage for success. If you are looking to boost your income, be sure to check out Information Marketing that provides the killer home business opportunities of the next decade.

Shop Online For Free!

Monday, November 18, 2013

Do you love online shopping and online auctions? There are several different ways to shop using the internet and signing up to shop with them is totally free! What a deal.

There are companies active right now in Europe and have proven themselves. These are cutting edge trading portals. This summer, some will be making their way here to the United States and Canada. How cool is that?

These companies use internet marketing to promote e-commerce and worldwide trading. This trading knows no boundaries or country borders. You can shop anywhere, in any language and any currency.

They do all the heavy lifting for you by setting up your web site and uploading your products to your page. You just tell them which countries you want to market to, prices, etc.

Maybe you do not want your own shop, but just want to buy items and products. If you choose to buy something from one of their online auction sites, you have several different options. Unique bid is one of my favorites, almost addicting. The winner of the auction item is the lowest unique bidder! These are all name brand, top quality items like cell phones, flat screen TV's, laptop computers and more. Nothing is too big or small. They auction cars, property and even vacations and you will pay just a fraction of retail price for any item. You only need to have the lowest offer. Crazy, huh?

There are so many different ways to make money. You can, of course, sign up to shop for free and save tons of money when you purchase products or you may decide to take this one step further and join one of the companies as a Business Associate. This type of home based business allows Business Associates to refer customers to their personal web site. When a customer buys from one of the shops or online auctions the associate receives commissions on each and every sale, and the very best part is you keep these customers for life!

You can also refer other business minded people, you know, those that really want to make money on the internet, to join as Business Associates. You will get a commission when they join and when their customers purchase products. It just gets better and better!

Business Trademarks: What Your Small Business Needs to Know

Tuesday, November 12, 2013

This article will look at what a business trademark is (and what it isn't), how to make sure it's available for use, and how to register your logo for protection.

What is a trademark?

A trademark is a word, phrase, image, or other sign or signifier that connects a product or service to its source. (For services, the term "service mark" is sometimes alternately used.) It can be either registered or unregistered.

For example, the Pepsi logo is commonly recognized in conjunction with the company; if you saw the logo on the side of a soft drink or other product, you would know without a doubt that Pepsi-Cola is responsible for that product.

How can you be so sure? Federal law states that no other company would be able to use the logo on their own product, since this would cause confusion in the eyes of the public.

(Fun fact: Trade and service marks have ancient origins! Blacksmiths, weavers, and other producers of high-quality merchandise used to place a unique symbol on their work so their customers could be assured they weren't purchasing a cheap knock-off a premium prices.)

How does a trade or service mark differ from a copyright?

While both types of intellectual property protection can cover a logo, the scope of this protection varies slightly.

Trade or service marks protect the connection between the logo and the company, the product and the source.

Copyrights protect the unauthorized use, display, or reproduction of an image, regardless of its connection with a product, service, company, or similar.

(Fun fact: Not all trademarks are eligible for copyright protection. For example, "names and short phrases" cannot be copyrighted, so business names and slogans could only be trademarks. And a logo made primarily out of text typically cannot be copyright protected as an image; to be eligible, there would need to be a significant amount of original authorship outside the use of letters.)

How do I know if my logo is already in use?

First, it must be said that it is exceedingly difficult to track down all potential matches, simply because by its very definition there is no central database in which all unregistered trademarks are recorded (because they're unregistered). However, there are a few places that you can look to greatly reduce your chances of infringement:

Internet Search

Just by running Google and other search engine searches of the trademark in question, as well as any potential alternate spellings, you will narrow down a great deal of your search, since in today's world most businesses have some sort of an online presence. (And while you're at it, it's not a bad idea to see if your trade or service mark is available as a domain name; just type "trademark".com, -.net, and -.org into your browser and see what comes up!)

ThomasNet

Calling itself "an industrial search engine, this is a database maintained by Thomas Industrial NetworkSM, a leader in industry and product information. This is one of the largest sources of unregistered trade and service mark information in the country.

Network Solutions

This database is like ThomasNet, but for domain names. If a person or company has reserved a domain name, you'll be able to find out -- and you can presume that a domain name for a website used commercially is a business trade and service mark.

Business Records

Unregistered trade and service marks are going to be more of a concern if they're in use in your industry and in your geographical area, so it isn't a bad idea to check your Secretary of State's database of registered businesses. Depending on your state, your County Clerk may also hold its own separate registry of unincorporated businesses.

How do I register my trade or service mark?

It's probably clear by now that its much less problematic to register your business trade or service mark, creating an official record of its commercial use.

The US Patent and Trademark Office is the government entity in charge of these registrations (and, unsurprisingly, patents as well). However, it is generally a good idea to go through an attorney familiar with intellectual property and commercial law, as the application process can take up to two years and is very complex. There are also many excellent third-party companies that can apply with the USPTO on your behalf.

For further reading, the USPTO provides a wealth of great information on the topic.

We need to prove to our existing and future clients that we are one of the best online shops that are available in the market. Being on top is only possible if you sell quality products. You must know where to look for the best suppliers. You need to consider some important points for you to be the best.

1. You need to know what type of commodity you want to sell.
2. Consider the type of supplier you want to deal with.
3. Do you want to sell only the original ones or even the fake ones.
4. Are you considering other items in your shop.

It is really important in your online business to get a nice and reliable supplier. eBay a reputable auction powerhouse, tried and tested for several years now is a very reliable wholesale products source. You can go to their website and type in right product categories. For example, you are looking for make-ups, type in cosmetics or if you are interested the latest gadgets, you can type in electronics. You also need to check their customer's feedback. If they have more negative feedback, you need to stay away from that supplier.

Another great source for your wholesale products business is China. The first thing you must think is its location and the language barrier. It is important that you have constant communication with your supplier. It is so hard for you if your supplier in China and they do not have offices around the world. However, you must still consider them as one of the best supplier because it is already a given fact that they produce really low prices.

Lastly, the business-to-business portals. They give you the right to use the long list of reliable wholesale business suppliers. However, some of them will require you to register immediately to their system without the chance of checking their authenticity and fraud. So you really need to be careful in selecting companies in the list.
