Everyone wants something FREE! Even other networkers can't say no to at least checking out your website, and maybe your opportunity later. You probably won't actually be selling anything from this website, but it's a great way to increase your leads and start building new relationships. Use them as a learning tool!
One thing you must learn in recruiting on Internet. YOU MUST DO SOMETHING!
Just do something EVERY day. Persistency and consistency are two best skills in Internet marketing. Continue trying new advertising methods and new websites to increase traffic. Make sure you follow up with every email you receive, offer something of VALUE to them. Tell them about a great new e-zine of yours that they can subscribe to for free or some other item that keeps your message in front of them on an ongoing basis!
Having your own website will work best for bringing people off-line to online. Tell your friends, family, co-workers, strangers, everyone to visit your website. Call them and personally invite them to check it out.
Just say, 'Hi Betty, this is David, do you have a second? Great! I need your help on something. I have a new website and I really wanted to get your input on it. I think it is something you will be interested in when you're finished will you give me a call back so we can chat? Thanks Betty.'
How difficult was that? You MUST learn to think 'outside box'. Get people curious. Be personal. Then you will be more effective. Your success depends proportionately on your activities and attitude! Most people always seem to find what they're looking for. Are you looking for Success or failure?
Remember, learning is a continuous process and if stop learning, you stop living. Learning HOW to effectively use Internet for recruiting does take time and effort, but YOU CAN DO IT TOO!
SECRETS TO FOLLOW UP:
In network marketing, whether online and offline, Fortune is in Follow Up! If you are going to be successful recruiting on Internet, you MUST follow up with your interested prospects. Would you discover a gold mine and not finish digging?
It is same concept. So many people are afraid to complete process because they are afraid someone will tell them 'NO'. Here's My Secret: It's not YES's in this business that create wealth. It's NO's. You will get a NO majority of time. But those with biggest pile of No's create wealth in long run.
How you handle No's will determine if it will be wealth, or only a wish to be successful in your network marketing business and in life.
You are in business of COLLECTING DECISIONS. It doesn't matter if it is a YES or a NO. Either way, you must collect them! You MUST FOLLOW UP to collect decision, and that is where you make your money -- getting decision. Especially on internet.
For every 12 No's you get, you most likely will get a Yes. Fear plays a lot in recruiting on Internet because many folks have fear that results they want will not happen. You generally get in this business what you expect to get. And you generally don't get what you don't ALLOW to be in your life. If you collect a LOT of decisions, you will make a LOT of money. If you collect a few decisions, you will make a few dollars.
The more you follow up, more your check will go up! Believe it or not, over 80% of network marketers NEVER follow up!
And I bet if you did opposite, and followed up on 80% of your interested prospects you would create an MLM money machine that would create WEALTH from Internet.
WE DID A SURVEY RECENTLY OF OVER 1,000 DISTRIBUTORS AT RANDOM, AND DISCOVERED AN AMAZING STATISTIC, AMONG OTHER THINGS.
Less than 30% of distributors we surveyed had a system of following up, and contacted people on a methodical basis they had sent information to.
Less than 10% did that daily! Can you believe that?
And answer we got when we asked them, 'Why didn't you follow up?' was consistently 'If they are interested, they would have called me.' Most folks will not call you back because they see that as your responsibility, and many want to see how serious you are about your business.
The fortune you are seeking is not in prospecting, not in contacting, not in presentation, nor website, nor advertising (online or offline.)They all help to determine ultimate result. But If you don't follow up, you will NEVER sign them up! If you just follow up on prospects you have, you can triple your income fairly quickly. Consistent follow up when recruiting, screams LEADERSHIP!
How many folks will get excited about something that you aren't excited enough over to call them back to seek their opinion? The CONSISTENCY in your follow up will mostly determine consistency in your paycheck. There is a gold mine in front of you, but you must dig. You must labor to find gold vein that is within mine. It is there, yet most people walk away from it laying down their shovels and fortunes, in return for an easier way to get through life and living off of fool's gold that other miners cast aside. Don't lay down your shovel and accept fool's gold that only fools will try and cash in. Your gold mine is in your list of follow ups.
There is a breathing human being on other side of computer monitor. NEVER forget it and you won't be forgotten. Keep focus on them and only on them. They will FEEL that you are sincere, personal and have THEIR best interest at heart, which probably will mean they will take you more seriously as a Network Marketing recruiter on internet!
