There are do’s and don’ts of network marketing. Most people are doing network marketing the wrong way. Because of this, prospects are treating network marketers like suspects. We all want financial and time freedom. We want to leave a legacy for our families to emulate. However, there is a certain way to go about achieving this. Network marketing is a people business. There is a protocol to connecting with people. So let’s get into the do’s and don’ts of network marketing.
1. Do respect the business of network marketing.
This is a business that can give you the quality of life that most people wish they had. When you respect this business, you will position yourself to prosper unlike any job could ever offer.
2. Do get as many eyeballs on your business as you can.
Network marketing requires you to get as much exposure as possible. Use offline and online strategies to do this. This business is a numbers game. So you will have to go through the numbers in order to get results. Period.
3. Do consider getting a blog.
A blog gives your visitors a chance to get to know who you are and what you do. Do you need a blog to make money? No. The reason why I recommend having a blog is because a blog allows you to brand yourself on the internet. People all the world can have the opportunity to connect with you while you are sitting at home! In addition, blogging lets you offer independent tips and training.
4. Do get a lead magnet or capture page to collect leads on your blog.
The reason why I say this is because you will have an additional way to collect leads. More importantly, the leads are already familiar with you and your offer.
This concludes the Do’s of network marketing. Now, I will cover the don’ts of network marketing.
1.Don’t spam your opportunity.
One thing people hate is spam. There must be something magical that we believe happens when we spam others with our opportunity. Maybe we believe prospects will get started with us if we send them an unsolicited link. The truth of the matter is you must build a relationship with your prospects BEFORE you send them some information. Never spam someone who didn’t request your link. Spamming makes people think your business is a scam. Furthermore, it makes you look unprofessional.
2. Don’t ignore offering value on social media.
If you look at many of the groups on Face book, you will notice that many of the net workers are posting their business. Everyone and their mother has a business. You must uniquely offer something of value that will make people think. Posting pictures of your pet and food is nice, but they don’t give people value. When you offer value online, you will attract prospects to you.
3. Don’t argue with people.
If someone says I quit, let them. They didn’t quit on you, they quit on themselves and their families. I find it amazing that we get started for selfish reasons and quit for selfish reasons. Don’t convince people to stay on board. If you convince them today, you will convince them tomorrow.
4. Don’t post pictures of money, or make income statements.
If you notice in many of the Face book groups, affiliate marketers post pictures of themselves holding large sums of money. They are indicating that you can make money fast. You and I both know that making money online with any business is not that easy. If you have a quality offer, it will take some time. When you make income statements, you contribute to the stigma that network marketing is shady.
In conclusion, these are the Do’s and Don’ts of network marketing. There are others to be mentioned though everyone’s experience will differ. Network marketing is about learning, doing and sharing. As we focus on the do’s, we will eliminate the don’ts.
