"How can I find a lot of new prospects and sign them up without spending much money?" That'srepparttar most common question I hear from new MLM distributors.

It's not as difficult as it sounds. I've usedrepparttar 102641 following 5 step system many times to successfully find new prospects and close sales -- fast. It's inexpensive to use and works for building a business onrepparttar 102642 Internet or in traditional ways. You can copy this same system to build your MLM business.


Maybe everybody can use what you offer. But that doesn't mean everybody will takerepparttar 102643 time to consider it. You'll get repparttar 102644 largest number of sign-ups withrepparttar 102645 least amount of effort and atrepparttar 102646 lowest cost by targeting a niche market.

A niche market is a group of potential customers who share common characteristics making them especially receptive to what you offer.

I recently met a distributor for an MLM company selling health and nutritional products. She found a list of health club members who also subscribe to a magazine about starting a business. The combination of these 2 special interests created a good niche market for her. It's her primary source of new distributors.


Use small ads, postcards and other low cost methods to generate inquiries (or web site traffic) from prospects in your targeted niche market. Prospects in your niche market are very interested in what you offer. Therefore, you'll be able to sign-up a higher than average percentage ofrepparttar 102647 inquiries from them.

Generating leads also enables you to collect contact information you can use to follow up with prospects who don't take actionrepparttar 102648 first time they see your offer. For example, you can direct inquiries to your web site where you also offer a free report or newsletter by email. Once you haverepparttar 102649 prospect's email address you can follow up periodically with new offers.


When to say "When" to an affiliate program

Written by Chuck McCullough

How long should you promote an affiliate program before you makerepparttar decision that it just isn't going to work for you? Let's face it, no matter how well a particular product may do on other websites, it just might not be right for yours. Statistics show that only a small percentage of affiliates for any given program actually make any money. What happens if you are one of those that falls intorepparttar 102640 category not making money? Is it time to take downrepparttar 102641 site and letrepparttar 102642 domain name registration expire? No way! But it just might berepparttar 102643 right time to make some changes to your strategy. Analyze your website andrepparttar 102644 programs that you have signed up for. Determine which of those REALLY appeal to your target audience. I said REALLY because I want you to look atrepparttar 102645 programs fromrepparttar 102646 viewpoint of your visitors, not fromrepparttar 102647 viewpoint of which ones are supposed to make yourepparttar 102648 most money. There's a lot of advice out there on which programs to pick for your website, highest commissions, monthly payout, online reporting, etc, etc, etc. The fact is that you don't always have that choice to make. You need to concentrate onrepparttar 102649 products that your visitors will berepparttar 102650 most interested in. What programs compliment your website's content and theme are much more important than signing up for every program promising to make you rich with only one sale. I'm a great example ofrepparttar 102651 above information. One of my websites caters to a highly targeted audience. I have tried many affiliate programs and advertising solutions on that site overrepparttar 102652 past two years. You know which program consistently beats all others?! I get paid quarterly not monthly (make that a month or two afterrepparttar 102653 quarter has ended), I only get credited for that visit, not repeat visits, and up until about a month ago had to wait until Monday of each week for my emailed statistics. Believe it or not boys and girls, doesn't fit intorepparttar 102654 'model affiliate program' mold that we read so much about. Now, I'm not trying to be hypocritical here, I too feel that you should do your best to find quality affiliate programs that offer all ofrepparttar 102655 above benefits and then some. I'm just trying to tell you that if you find a program that really appeals to your target audience, you CAN make some money with it. Don't pass up products that your visitors would really be interested in just becauserepparttar 102656 program doesn't have repparttar 102657 highest commissions. Because if your visitors do purchase from a particular program and you can show consistent sales
