Do You Want a Guarantee That You Will Make Money Online?
What are you waiting for? Grab a pen.
Be prepared to take some notes and put your reading glasses on so you can read between the lines. I don’t want this to be oversimplified but all you really need is commitment and a system to get you there.
That is oversimplified, isn’t it? Your bottom jaw probably dropped on that last statement. First, let’s take care of commitment. Without this, nothing else matters. If you don’t have a commitment or do not desire to develop one, you will be as effective if you unplugged your computer. (You could save money this way also.) Commitment is something you develop. Most people trying to develop an online business are looking for something for nothing. They don’t want to pay for memberships, tools or marketing costs. But, the most important part is they don’t want to change who they are to become a successful business person.
Commitment is more than attending conference calls. Commitment is more than setting up an autoresponder. Commitment is more than talking to your neighbor about your business this week. Commitment is reading books by Napoleon Hill, Dale Carnegie and Og Mandino. Commitment is learning something new and applying it in your business. Commitment is learning the marketing system that you are using with your business and applying it in your business. Commitment is pushing yourself when you get frustrated, want to quit, or want to watch TV on your business time.
We can write this entire article on Commitment but we need to move on to the main event.
Obviously without Commitment, nothing else matters. But, without a functioning SYSTEM, even the best intentions of Commitment will not be of any value.
We are really stressing a “System” as opposed to throwing undefined efforts of a marketing campaign at your internet business. Just for the sake of acknowledgement, there are quite a number of very successful individuals that do not use a system. They may use one or more marketing procedures and they do all right. Unfortunately for the majority of network marketers, we just do not have deep pockets that we can spend on these marketing programs. Some marketing programs may cost thousands of dollars before you break even and start making a profit. This is fine for someone selling a product through an online business using direct sales. This is not the best procedure or marketing plan for someone that is using internet marketing to build a network marketing business with.
There are a lot of systems out there but let’s get specific. I learned a system years ago but the person that first shared this with me was doing direct sells for his internet business. He was an internet marketer that wasn’t interested in building a sales organization. Recently, I ran across this system (adapted for network marketing) that was being used not only to build a sales organization but further designed to make it profitable for the participants at a faster rate. For the “newbie” network marketer, this is crucial.
The curtain is drawn and out on the stage walks the “new” network marketer. He/she is ready to “make money online”. They tried the offline network marketing businesses, they “bothered” their family and friends and subsequently joined the NFL club (No Friends Left). Now, they are reaching out for the last hope, the opportunity to make up that 0 deficit in their monthly budget, the chance that mom could stay home with Junior that is having difficulty in school.
The dreams are there! Only to be dashed against the cyber wall on INTERNET MARKETING’S GIGANTIC FAILURE RATE!
Is this fair? Of course not. As a reader of this article, is it your goal to throw those dreams away? Do you have COMMITMENT? If you have Commitment, the system is there.
What is the SYSTEM? What I was taught years ago was to concentrate your advertising to focus on a low cost product. The purpose of this is the build your list. List building is one of the most important activities you can do. Your low cost product is not designed to make you money but to cut the cost of building your list. Once you build your list, then you can sell other higher cost products to this list. You already spent the money necessary to obtain your customers on this list. Now you have customers that cost you little to no money to maintain.
The “System” that I’m talking about as it pertains to network marketing is: the Funded Sponsoring Franchise System. In this System, you have a free system that provides the structure and the training for the individual business owner. The new marketer can join for free and look around. If he/she decides to participate with the System, they can participate fully or partially. It is their preference. (They have to ultimately determine their own level of Commitment.) The overall purpose of the system is to provide a means for them to promote their primary business and at the same time eliminate the costs of their marketing efforts. The “System” will provide a means for them to make immediate income that they could use to “Fund” their costs of marketing.
