Recruiting on Internet in MLM is very popular! Yet, there are still many folks who are hesitant to jump into arena of Internet. I assure you best way of learning HOW to use Internet is to just do it!
And if you have already chosen to be a part of Internet culture, then we congratulate you on a decision that we believe is where you need to be. The recruiting process on Internet is NOT unlike process offline, you still must prospect, contact, present, follow up, get decision, and train and duplicate. But you need to understand that there MUST be a methodical process of creating environment for attracting people to your website and then to ATTRACT them to your Network Marketing business.
THE MOST IMPORTANT ONLINE MARKETING SECRET: There is a LIVE HUMAN BEING behind computer monitor that you are trying to recruit. Treat them as such, and with respect and professionalism. This is one of Foundation Secrets that you must understand.
Everybody you prospect to on Internet is breathing, has goals and dreams and understands that there is more to life than just surviving. And giving your prospect PERSONAL attention is even MORE important on Internet than it is offline!
You MUST understand that your emails and ALL your communication is being read by a LIVE, BREATHING, HUMAN BEING on 'the other side' of computer screen. I repeat this because even though it is obvious to most people, most people on Internet fail to ACT like it in their MLM recruiting efforts.
RELATIONSHIPS are just as important over Internet as it is offline. Sometimes even more important, since today's marketing methods on Internet are not all done professionally.
Remember, same principles hold true for building relationships on Internet. It usually takes a series of consistent exposures. It takes time to build trust. And personalization is VERY important, especially on Internet and MLM recruiting.
Everyone wants to be treated well, and with respect. And they also want to feel that they are special. So with your understanding that there is a LIVE human being on other side of computer screen. You need to create scenario that you may go beyond computer.
You MUST CONNECT with your person OFFLINE after gaining their interest, to create start of relationship, usually via telephone.
The other side of that computer monitor is a very special place that you must always keep in mind when recruiting, as that will determine a lot of where your recruiting grows, or doesn't grow.

And there are some HOT company sites out there.
Always CROSS-MARKET. Always advertise your website AND your phone number. This way anyone can contact you to get information they need.
Not everyone has DSL. Some are still on dial up. And some people will still prefer to call you to answer questions or build personal contact that is required to form a relationship.
