Online Network Marketing tip – Why you need more than a website

Did you know that having a website is not enough to generate leads in Online Marketing? It’s a big part of your strategy, but you need more than a good website (take note: a good one, not just one).
It doesn’t have to be overwhelming for you if your budget is tight or just don’t know where to start. A blog is a perfectly fine way to begin.
But you also need a good system to follow. An Online Marketing system teaches you exactly what to do in every step of the way, what to say, which websites are the best for getting traffic, etc.
You can become an affiliate of the system you are using. That way you have another potential stream of income because you can promote it and monetize.
More than one Online Marketing system can do that for you. There is no one magic system and you can even follow two or three. That way your associates have more choices too.
But even a good system won’t do miracles for you if you don’t act upon what they teach.
The variable is you. How, are you going to make this happen? What do you have to offer to the Industry that makes you likely to succeed?

Tip for Affiliate Marketing: Are your affiliate commissions in danger?

One of the advantages of using Online Marketing in your Network Marketing business is the opportunity to use Affiliate Marketing. This allows you to earn money as you build your list of followers and sing up business partners.

You have to offer value and many times this comes from other people’s stuff. Some of this content is free and some is paid. In order for you to make money promoting other people’s paid content, you need an affiliate link.

An affiliate link looks something like this: www.yourname.what-you-promote.com or www.what-you-promote.com/yourname

The reality is that many people don’t like this and take your name out. They go directly to the author’s link. This way you lose your commission. Maybe you have done it too.

One way to protect your affiliate link is to cloak it. This may be a strange concept for you but basically means that you cover your link. What your prospect sees is a link that doesn’t look like an affiliate program. More importantly, if they try to take something out, they won’t be able to go to he content’s page.

If you don’t know how to cloak a link manually (I don’t!), you can use the website below. I find it honest and very useful:


You might be even interested in the profitable side of it.

Stay at Home Moms: How to supplement your income with Network Marketing

For a Stay At Home Mom it can be challenging and risky to start a business. We already have a hectic schedule. We need motivation, drive and persistence. But making money is possible if you know how to use Network Marketing to supplement your income.

An easy way to make money with Network Marketing is to sell your products at retail price. According to your compensation plan you might have 2 or 3 other ways to supplement your income. Maybe you can make money with sales volume or get bonuses for signing new costumers or business partners.

Nevertheless, this is limited. I bet the top leaders in your company have other different streams of income. Many of them offer exclusive training (besides the free one), sell their own CDs and material, have different websites, etc. This is a secret that rarely gets out.

One great way to supplement your income with Network Marketing is using Online Marketing. And this is not a secret anymore. Online MLM offers different ways to monetize your business like Affiliate Marketing and training programs. They don’t have to be affiliated with your business so you can benefit from sales outside your company.

Being a Stay At Home Mom doesn’t mean you can’t supplement your income from home because you don’t have the time. Know where the money is and go for it. And remember, I'm here to help. Leave a comment and I'll contact you.

Education in Network Marketing

In Network Marketing, education is essential for the success of your business. You have to educate your prospect about the industry of Network Marketing, about your opportunity and the Company you represent, about your products, etc.

The training part of the business is nothing more than education: you have to teach your associates how to do this business and how to make it profitable for them. You have to educate about what you know that works.

But what if we start the other way around? What if we start teaching our prospects how to build an organization, what to do in Network Marketing in order to succeed? That is at the heart of Attraction Marketing in Network Marketing. It is taking a principle of Marketing (education) into our Industry and thus providing the prospect with a good reason to keep coming back to you and be receptive to your information.

When you lead with the teaching about how they are going to make money, you start off letting them know that you are familiar with what you are doing. That can help with the percentage of people that drop off after signing up. They come into the business knowing exactly what they have to do.

People like Ann Sieg and Mike Klingler teach exactly what to do. The Attraction Marketer Manifesto educates in how to build a Network Marketing business (and this is just a glimpse of what they have to offer). If you haven’t heard of this yet, you can’t waste more time. Grab a copy now.
