A traditional MLM business is often associated with both time and financial freedom. These are also the main reasons that attract people into this industry. They want to spend more time with their friends and family, achieve income that comes in even when they are not working. Basically, they can do the things they like, anytime, anywhere without having to worry about money.
On the hind side, some of the common things that a network marker does in order to be successful in their MLM business includes but not limited to:
- Making a list of friends and family to promote the product/business to
- Doing one-on-one business presentation
- Do cold calling
- Sending postcards
- Hold home parties
- Hold seminar at hotel for business opportunity / recruitment talks
The key to success, and also the objective of doing the tasks listed above, is to build a network of people who are committed to building the business. However, the time and effort required can be substantial especially in the first two years of starting the MLM business. Not forgetting the emotional stress when faced with rejections.
With the introduction of the Internet, the traditional MLM business model has somewhat evolved. Still reaping the benefit of both passive recurring income and time freedom, this new Internet MLM model, it has made communication borderless, much faster and a whole lot cheaper. Thus, an Internet Network Marketer NO LONGER has to:
- Depend on the list of friends and family members as prospects
- Do cold calling to prospects where even one second seems like an eternity
- Attending meetings after meetings
- Doing long hours of presentations that might end with rejections
- Spending time traveling to meet with prospects
All that the Internet Network Marketer does is just simply spending around 1 to 2 hours a day, right in front of a computer, doing Internet marketing and promoting his affiliate website. No longer is the network marketer restricted by his physical presence to build his network, and best of all, he need not look for prospects, instead interested prospects will look for him asking for more information.
Internet MLM business is truly an attractive Home Based Business, that allows you to work from home at your own leisure, even if you are still in your pajamas. It allows you to achieve success without the limitation of time, distance and your physical self, but simply by the Internet marketing skill that you acquire and put into action, which can easily be taught and learnt.
