If you’re marketing your network marketing business online, it’s important that you leverage affiliate marketing (or funded proposals) to stay profitable. It’s been said that 97% of network marketers spend themselves out of business. Think about it. Right out of the gate, new marketers are asked to spend money on websites, business cards, tools, DVDs, ads, autoships, events, travel expenses to national conventions and a whole slew of other things.
Many times, they’re dipping into their wallets over and over again even before they’ve turned a profit or made their initial start-up costs back. Is it any secret why the turnover rate in the network marketing industry is so high?
So what’s the solution?
The reality is that there are a couple of solutions. But the one I’m going to talk about now is this: You have to position yourself to profit EVEN when prospects (your leads) don’t join your business.
The cold hard fact is 9 out of 10 people will NOT join your business…
… ACCEPT IT.
It doesn’t mean your company or products are bad and you very well may have a solid business opportunity you’re sharing… But ‘the numbers are the numbers’ and the vast majority of people will NOT join your business.
Now, there are two things you can do about it…
1. You can be a wussy and throw your hands up in defeat…. or
2. You can ACCEPT it and just position yourself to profit from all those people.
Obviously, if you’re serious about building a business and making money from home… and you’re not a wussy… you’ll choose the second option.
Then if you’re really thinking about building, you can simply take the profits you’ll earn and re-invest it into things that will position yourself to grow your list and grow your primary network marketing business…. Hah, you still win! LOL
Sounds simple enough, right?
That’s because it is, from a concept perspective. Yes, you’ll have to learn how to market and navigate through the online marketing space…
And yes, you’ll have to learn how to not have ‘shiny ball syndrome’ and change directions every 2 or 3 weeks when a new deal is getting launched…
But as long as you understand the concept of profiting EVEN when people DON’T join your business, you’re way ahead of the game.
Trust me, the vast majority of ‘marketers’ can’t even wrap their heads around that point. That’s why you see them on Facebook, LinkedIn and Youtube never offering value or promoting generic tools or systems that everyone can use. The only thing they do is promote their network marketing business.
Their whole approach is: My company is this… and my company is that… blah, blah, blah…
Personally, I don’t really give a crap so when I see that being posted or in my inbox, I just delete and keep moving…
It amazes me how many ‘#1 comp plans’ and ‘#1 ownership teams’ there are in the industry… LOL
OK, I’m being sarcastic.
If that’s the way you want to market online, I’m certainly not going to stop you. One thing about me is I NEVER try to convince anyone to do things like me. If you want to shove you business down people’s throats, you certainly can.
But c’mon, do you know how much money you’re leaving on the table?
Personally, over the last few months I’ve been generating $16,000-$20,000 a month OUTSIDE of any network marketing company I’m promoting. Imagine if I was just promoting a network marketing company ONLY? I would be leaving $4,000-$5,000 a week on the table….
Now before I go on, I will say that as a disclaimer my results aren’t typical and you’re not guaranteed to get the same results. Obviously, you will ‘get out what you put in’ and you will have to actually learn new skill sets and have a solid work ethic… I know (gasp), what’s that?
Who would’ve though that actually making money online would require you to learn what you’re doing and get good at it…. and you’d have to work?
With that said, there are people that make way more than me in the online marketing space. I personally know of marketers who generate a ridiculous amount of money outside of their network marketing business. Of course, they’re putting on generic events for people, offering coaching services and things like that. But they understand they have to offer something to people who would not be interested in their network marketing opportunity. They’re being smart marketers and entrepreneurs.
Are you starting to get it?
Hopefully you are. But as I always do (being sarcastic again… LOL), I’m about to go above and beyond the call of duty and give you access to a 1-hour and 45-minute coaching webinar I did a while back.
Yes, I’m giving away the farm and I could easily charge for this.
But you know what?
I’m so sick and tired of all these ‘guru’ marketers charging every one for every little thing they do. They want you to pay for this and pay for that…
And don’t get me wrong…
They DESERVE to get paid for their knowledge and they DESERVE to get paid for the value their sharing. Heck, I charge for personal coaching services and for several ‘Boot Camp’ products I’ve created, too. But I just wanted to give this ‘bonus’ to you because I remember what it was like to be new. I remember jumping online 16 months ago and trying to understand how everything worked. You may be going through that phase right now…
So here’s the deal. Grab a cup of coffee and get rid of all the distractions. This is almost 2 hours of pure content and information. No joke – this replay can make you lots of money if you ‘get it’.
Enjoy… and don’t say I never hook you up…
Click PLAY to watch the video
Because I referenced My Lead System Pro (MLSP) in the webinar session, it would probably make sense for you to check it out. Unless of course, you already have way too many leads and you’re already sponsoring way too many people into your network marketing business. Personally, I’ve generated over 15,000 leads using MLSP so I can vouch for it. And because it is in itself a strong affiliate program (funded proposal), it’s perfect for offering it to people who don’t want to join your business.
Can you do me a big favor?

I know I’ve been somewhat ‘quiet’ lately (I’ve been having a lot of fun putting together my new office in my new house and for some reason my wife thinks we have to check out and shop at every mall in our new neighborhood)… but I’ve got some really cool things coming up you’re gonna want to hear about first… trust me!
I’ll catch you on the next post…
