Guaranteed success with your internet marketing home business will come from a combination of activities, tactics, techniques and strategies, but the most crucial of them all is in your initial planning.You must have heard this statement many times before, “if you fail to plan, you plan to fail”.The number one activity that every successful person rely on, especially when starting on their journey, is to “have a plan”. Without a plan you’re doomed for failure before you even begin. Read that again!Those who have had experiences in the offline MLM or Network Marketing home business industry would be familiar with the above statement, and why it is so important. Yet, many of them IGNORE it in their business activities. Hence their home business never get off the ground.Nothing worthwhile has ever been accomplished without detailed planning. Before building a house, a car, a boat, take a vacation, anything of significance, you MUST have a plan. So why do internet marketers jump online to start a business to make money without having a detailed “road map as to where they’re going?To start your planning process here are 5 fundamental questions that you need to ask yourself, before you start your internet marketing home business:1. What business model will you be building your home business in? Your choice here might come about because of your background, professional or life experiences, or your dreams and aspirations.2. What niche market are you going to be targeting? After choosing a general market you will have to drill down to find a niche within that market that is more targeted. It’s more difficult to make sales in a broad market like “golf”, than a more targeted niche market like “putting secrets for beginners”.3. What keywords will you be targeting in your ad campaigns? This is a critical step when getting started with your internet marketing home business. You will need to do some market research to find the right keywords for your niche. These are the keywords that you will be using in your ad campaigns, on your website, your blogs, etc.Example: Key phrases like “how to potty-train an Australian Terrier” are much more effective than “dog training”.4. How will you set up your sales funnel? Here you will have to decide if you’re going to drive visitors straight to the merchant’s sales page, or you’ll be setting up a landing/capture page with an autoresponder follow-up sequence (highly recommended).5. Will you be using autoresponder, website, blog, software, tools etc? While many affiliate marketers send visitors straight to the merchant’s website and make money from it, this is not the wisest thing to do.To make a consistent ongoing income from your internet marketing home business you MUST have a subscriber list, and the only way to accomplish that is to have a system in place to collect your visitors information. This way you will be able to followup with them through your autoresponder with good content and offers.The above points are just some of the things you need to pay very close attention to when starting your internet marketing home business. The most effective way to plan is to write them down. That’s it! It works every time!Now here’s the best way to do this:Grab your pen and paper and start writing. Don’t worry about the details at first, just write down all the ideas that comes to mind. Later on you can organize them into different categories, break them down into smaller steps, and set a time frame for implementation.Now, you must understand that these activities will take time and some brain storming, but it has to be done. If you skip these now you will regret it later on. I guarantee that these chores will save you some major headaches and frustrations later on. Better yet, they will give you a fighting chance to become successful with your internet marketing home business.
What is the truth about the multi-level marketing industry? The persistent things that you hear or read about MLM is that there is a 95% failure rate in the industry is not factual. This is a fraudulant statement. Why? It is because 70% of the individuals in the MLM industry quit. That is correct individuals quit they don’t fail. Did you actually fail with an MLM company? No one with any credibility would declare that you failed. So what are some of the reasons why individuals actually quit their business?Well for one, if your what they consider a newbie, the individual that signed you up in the business gives you advice about presenting the business to your friends and family, talking to people at your local grocery store, shopping mall, and other places in your community. If you’re fortunate enough the individuals you talk to you may possible sign into your business, the fact is only 1% of these individuals will join your business. Which would mean that you have to speak to 100 individuals to possibly sign one person into your business.When I glance at this, and believe me I’ve done this method of network marketing, you will reflect and express to yourself what is the point that I am spending all this time trying to recruit people into my business and it’s not effective. You have a discussion with your up-line and ask them for assistance and they give you some encouragement and keep telling you to do the identical thing over and over. At a certain point you will give up. That is correct you will quit. This is fragment of the reason that MLM companies are criticized. They don’t work! I did that they are a scam! This is just not true with good MLM companies. It’s the process of what you are doing not the company.If you are looking to get into a MLM company you need to research the company and attain what kind of marketing strategies they have in place that you can employ. You also need to make inquiries and attain ways outside of the company to aid you in marketing your business before you get started. Marketing your business through the Internet is one of the most effective and efficient ways to do this. Do your research before you join a multilevel marketing company and figure out how you would market the company before you sign up.To your continued success,
