Achieving financial freedom with Network Marketing on The Internet By Tasos Vasilopoulos Part 19 - Time to take action – Become a teacher, a co-worker, a mentor Introduction This article makes part of a series of 20 articles. The subject of this series is creation and promotion of a website as a cost-effective method to establish a profitable home based business on Internet. In my previous article, “Achieving financial freedom with Network Marketing on The Internet – Part 18 – Time to take action – The “Follow-up” method”, I have presented to you my method of following-up my affiliates effectively. In this article I will teach you your main job as a Network Marketer. Become a teacher, a co-worker, a mentor Your job now, that you have found your people, is to convert your affiliates into well-trained co-workers. You have to teach them how to work effectively and establish their own profitable home business on Internet. You have to train them, make first steps together, support them, motivate them, reward them, and correct them. In a few words, YOU HAVE TO BE THERE FOR THEM. You will receive many questions from your affiliates regarding effectiveness of “this” marketing method or “that” tool to promote their businesses. Answer them quickly and tell truth. If you do not know answer or you do not have experience needed to give a good advice, tell it. And, if it is possible, use also other marketing methods, apart from promoting your website through your link popularity. Do this in order to be able to confront these marketing methods to your marketing method and also be in position to give right answer to your co-workers. There will be people who won’t follow your suggestion of creating and promoting their own website. But they will be able to develop their own successful marketing methods. Free or paid advertisement, word of mouth, offline advertisement to local newspapers or by flyers, online advertisement through ezines or by writing articles and ebooks. All these are marketing methods that can bring results. As I mentioned before, this is a numbers game. By referring people with all ways you can, soon you will get your leaders, those who can become successful and make you successful. Network Marketing on Internet is not same with Internet Marketing. In Network Marketing you build your network. This network is bringing you your residual income. Two thirds of my income now comes from my Network, even though I still am one of best in my group. After almost three years in business I have leaders I need. And I am making more of them. Some of them are better from me, make more money than me and needed less time to reach my status. I had patience to support them all way to their success, keep them motivated and help them when they needed it. Now I am getting rewarded for this. Many of these people, when they first joined this Network Marketing company didn’t know what they are entering in. I had to convert them in to Network Marketers. They had potentiality, but they didn’t know it from beginning. I had to keep them in until they could see results coming from their work. This could take months, even a year! This is reason many people fail in this business. They may be referring many people as their affiliates, but they do not know how to convert them into Network Marketers. The do not offer them all they need to become successful. They may follow-up with them using auto-responders or referring them to a forum or a discussion board about Network Marketing. But this is not enough. You have to give your affiliates special attention. Pass them your knowledge. Present them a proven business plan to implement. Work along with them. Even build their websites! I’ve done that. I was building websites of my co-workers and they improve them afterwards. Do that. IT WILL PAY YOU BACK.

In this article I will show you way to design layout of your webpages properly. Design layout of your web pages The structure of first version of your website does not need to be complicated. It will comprise a home page, links pages and link exchange procedure page, as I have presented to you in Part – 6 – Design structure of your website. But, still you will need a way for a visitor to navigate in your website from one page to another. You will need a menu in each page containing links to most important pages of your website. So, each one of your pages will contains at least two elements, content and menu. Consistency MUST be a virtue of your website. You must keep layout of all your pages same. You must decide where content will be placed and where menu will be placed. The options are not many. You can place menu above, below, in right or in left side of your content. You can see each one of these layouts in examples below: 1st example – The menu above content: Title of web page Subtitle of web page Menu Content 2nd example – The menu below content: Title of web page Subtitle of web page Content Menu 3rd example – The menu in right side of content: Title of web page Subtitle of web page Content Menu 4th example – The menu in left side of content: Title of web page Subtitle of web page Menu Content As you may have noticed I haven’t mentioned anything about title and subtitle of each one of web pages in your website. These two elements have also to do with layout of your web pages and they must reside at top of each page. The truth is that you have only two options to choose from: - The menu below content - The menu in right side of content And this constraint has to do with optimization procedure of your web page.
