Why Combine the Internet and Network Marketing?

Someone recently asked me, why would you ever do Network Marketing on the Internet? What could you possibly get from it? Now, granted, most of these questions come from MLM business people who truly know very little about the Internet and do not fully understand the incredible leverage it can give you.

I will make it very simple, all the internet does for network marketing is allow you to leverage your time and the vast amount of traffic on the internet all over the world in order to expose people to what solutions/products/opportunities you have. It combines the power of internet marketing and network marketing all in one.

For example, lets say you were trying to recruit people to become business partners with you. If you were to do business the Old School way of Network Marketing, let me ask you, how many business presentations could you give in a day? One or two if you are really good and have things going very smoothly.

With the Internet, you could give 10,20,100, or even 1000 network marketing business presentations for your opportunity. No, let me correct myself, you personally cannot, but because of the huge amount of traffic on the Internet, and using a marketing system, your system can give the presentations for you. This is true leverage for your MLM business

All that you need is a system in place to greet and sort those people to see if they are candidates to join you in your business and the ability to get people to come visit you and see you in your system you have created.

The system you create gives you the ability to meet, greet, educate, give value to, and sort those potential business partners of yours. You have the option to use pre-made marketing systems out there, which are tested and work very well. Otherwise you can create your own system to brand yourself as an expert Network Marketer.

Now listen closely, how do you get people to visit you on the Internet? By driving internet traffic or visitors to your website. Plain and simple. Its really a numbers game after that. You show what you have to 1000 of the right kind of targeted people a day, just by sheer numbers, at least 10 will join you.

Expanding your network marketing business onto the Internet lets you take advantage of this enormously leveraged medium, and is the new way to promote your MLM. You have the ability to make countless network marketing opportunity presentations to people all over the world once you have your basic system in place.

Mobile Internet And Its Applications Need To Become Central To Marketing Strategies

With mobile internet access having become so prevalent in recent years, brand marketers need to adhere to the increasing demand for accessing information through their mobile and smartphones. Whether to keep up-to-date with the latest news, through to shopping with a specific brand, more people are looking to do it on the go through their handsets. The need to construct a suitable online presence has been clear for some time, but now brands must start adhering to these new methods of accessing information. With the growth of the smartphone market, brands must develop their marketing strategies to include such methods.

A recent study by Tecmark found 23% of UK mobile phone users use their handsets to access the internet, and this is only likely to increase as smartphones become more readily available. The same study found that 26% of UK mobile owners have a smartphone, which highlights the correlation between mobile phone owners and internet use. Likewise in the US, mobile data consumption increased by 112% on 2009′s figures, further illustrating the rise to prominence of the mobile market.

With the popularity of both mobile internet access and general smartphone use continually increasing, brands need to ensure they develop suitable means for their fans to access such information. One of the key elements for brands to develop is a mobile-applicable website. Mobile users will be able to access the normal website through their smartphone, but often many websites aren’t wholly suitable for viewing through a smartphone browser, whether due to the use of applications such as flash, or because the website contains too much information to easily view on a small screen. A specifically tailored mobile website will make accessing the web page and the information therein much easier for the user, thereby making it more appealing and offering the user more of a reason to return.

Further to this, the recent ‘boom’ in the online application market presents a suitable medium for brands to continue to target their fans. Creating a mobile application is beneficial as the brand can include a number of different features to attract their fans and help promote the brand. The application could be as simple as creating a new version of the brand’s online shop, or could be as diverse as creating a game to help entertain the user, but one which still promotes the brand at its core.

Clearly it’s imperative for brands to develop suitable means to target their fans through mobile media. With the number of smartphone users ever-increasing along with the capabilities of the latest handsets, brands need to stay up to date with the latest technology so they can target prospective fans in the most suitable manner.
