The great promise ofrepparttar web was that vast worldwide market where you could reach millions without doing traditional sales. Put up a killer web site and reel inrepparttar 122577 big fish! Or simply scoop up millions of tiny fish in that big "net". Voila! No sales necessary! Now it's only spammers that fall for that asrepparttar 122578 rest of us realize we must sell to succeed.

How many ideas have succeeded on their own merits - without promotion, marketing and sales? What products have takenrepparttar 122579 world by storm when no one knew about them? Why do authors go on book-signing tours, actors makerepparttar 122580 rounds ofrepparttar 122581 talk show circuit, and major companies spend millions on trade shows? They launch monstrous public relations campaigns and give away tchotchke's with their logo emblazoned on them.

Public awareness does not come cheap or easy. The sales process is a necessary evil that many small business people abhor (and then they die) or embrace (and then they prosper.) Innovators and inventors must seek venture capital and sell their concept to investors. Why do we recoil fromrepparttar 122582 sales process ifrepparttar 122583 task falls to us as independent business owners? We look to gurus of marketing, P.R. and promotion to rescue us from this task and throw money at advertising to avoid doing sales ourselves.

Riches are reaped from multi-level marketers recruiting vast hoards of amateur sales people through pep-rally conventions offering "residual sales" without further effort by building a "downline", another name for sales staff. Then you can ease off, live onrepparttar 122584 sales efforts of hundreds of new "recruits". The product is secondary andrepparttar 122585 business opportunity is key to building that sales staff, so you can reachrepparttar 122586 top ofrepparttar 122587 pyramid and sip tropical drinks onrepparttar 122588 beach while "they" sell.
