In a world of advancement, technology has made it easier to do business. Now, you can reach millions of people with one email. You can blast a marketing campaign to a billion individuals. This can be accomplished with a single click of a mouse. The old school way of doing network marketing required you to pound the pavement, do home/hotel meetings and cold calling. These ways still work.
In the information age, you can market to prospects from the comfort of your own home. Although this method is ideal for many net workers due to time constraints etc, it does not compare to meeting someone in person. Network marketing still requires the human touch. It is a business that is built on relationships. Even though technology enables you to connect with people faster and more convenient, it can not replace the human experience.
Robots are being created by corporations to take over jobs that were once held by humans. This is done in an effort to reduce expenses and boost profits. What a shame it is to put profits over people. Especially when it is the people who contributed to the profits in the first place. Nevertheless, there is nothing like the human touch. Technology can not replace trust. Nor can it substitute love or respect. When you physically network with like minded people, you will feel a sense of community and belonging. Your life will be enriched through personal connections. Because of this, you will achieve greater success.
In conclusion, network marketing still requires the human touch. It is the only business that you get to work and fellowship with people who share similar interests. People want to know that you are a real person. This will cause people to want to join you and be a part of what you are doing.
