Written by Joe Bingham

What do you think arerepparttar keys to earning BIG BUCKS onrepparttar 122617 Internet?

First, let's break this down into two categories. Category #1 entails offering an extensive line of products, extensive services, departmentalizing your web design, accounting, billing, shipping, receiving, marketing, sales, inventory, personnel management, staffing, administration...

Whoa! What is this? I am not a corporation! I'm one person with a PC in my bedroom, screaming kids, barking dogs, a skeptical spouse, a regular job, and two hours betweenrepparttar 122618 kid's bed time and mine to try and make a difference in all our lives.

So, what's category #2?

Category #2 is affiliate programs or MLM.

Ok great, but what arerepparttar 122619 keys there? Actually, they are almostrepparttar 122620 opposite ofrepparttar 122621 keys to success forrepparttar 122622 category #1 business. There are 3 main points, and each intertwines logically withrepparttar 122623 other. Here they are.


Part ofrepparttar 122624 magic of network marketing overrepparttar 122625 Internet is how little it takes to get started. In fact, it's a mistake to have a large initial investment. The vast majority of MLM programs cost no more than $50 to join. In real world terms, starting a business for ONLY $50 is unheard of! Onrepparttar 122626 Internet, however, it's a reality. Many programs pay commissions of 40-50% on referrals as well, making a return on your investment incredibly fast.

So why dump a large investment into a program BEFORE you can see how well it will work for you when you can start much more easily with little to lose? Besides,repparttar 122627 BIG Bucks do not come from ONE sale, but multiple sales generated by a large network in your downline, and that large downline is much more likely to develop ifrepparttar 122628 initial cost to joining your program is a small one.


The real key to success in network marketing is through a successful downline. If you are a great recruiter yourself, you will do better than someone who isn't, but even still, there is real POWER inrepparttar 122629 mathematics of geometric progression in a network. Ideally, each person you recruit joins others inrepparttar 122630 next level under you, and they in turn createrepparttar 122631 next level beyond that. The numbers per level grow exponentially so long as each member that joins also refers others. Again, low investment is one key that will ensure all referrals will in turn gain referrals themselves.

Downline Builders - Make Sure You Know What You Are Getting Into!

Written by Joe Reinbold

There seems to be an ever increasing number of "Downline Builders" popping up onrepparttar Internet. Likewise there has been also a steady rise inrepparttar 122616 number of online "Multi-level" marketing programs. And why not! The Internet is an ideal marketing medium. It is cheaper thanrepparttar 122617 way we used to market five or six years ago when I was involved in them by mailing to prospects through regular postal mail. Plus back then you also had printing and envelope costs too!

Inrepparttar 122618 last couple of yearsrepparttar 122619 downline builders have become popular as a way to recruit people for one or more programs. What is a downline builder program?

I want to say right up front that I am not against downline builders or MLM programs, they are great ways to build income. But you have to go into them with a certain amount of knowledge of how they work.

Basicallyrepparttar 122620 downline builder is a marketing plan in which prospects are placed after signing up. The organizational structure ofrepparttar 122621 plan varies from program to program. It can be a straight line organization i.e., one person right under each other or it can be two onrepparttar 122622 first level, four onrepparttar 122623 second, eight onrepparttar 122624 third, etc. There are so many different ways to set it up it would be difficult to describe them all here. Many of them will be set up inrepparttar 122625 structure thatrepparttar 122626 primary program is,repparttar 122627 one you will end up going into at some point.

The primary concept ofrepparttar 122628 downline builder is to build a downline before going into a primary income producing program, thus minimizing your initial marketing costs. It is also hoped that this downline, as it is built, will at some point follow you intorepparttar 122629 income producing program.

No matterrepparttar 122630 structure,repparttar 122631 downline builders are normally FREE. That is what draws so many people into them initially. The promotional material for most of them indicates that you can make X income a month or year by joining up. What many people fail to realize is that they are not going to make any money by just being a member ofrepparttar 122632 downline builder itself.

The downline builder is free so there is no income generated with it. The promoters aren't going to pay you out ofrepparttar 122633 goodness of their heart, especially when there are thousands of people involved. At some point inrepparttar 122634 downline builder process you are going to be asked to join some income producing program. This is where you are going to have to make a commitment in most cases to a monthly payment for some type of product. This is a critical point inrepparttar 122635 process and is where "the rubber meetsrepparttar 122636 road" as they say.
