Why Your Network Marketing Efforts Are Failing Copyright © 2004 Willie Crawford
About once a week, I get someone struggling to build an on-line network marketing business come to me for advice. They want me to take a look at their website, and how they are doing business, and tell them WHAT they're doing wrong. They want suggestions on how to grow their business faster.
Let's begin by acknowledging that network marketing is nothing new. It's just telling acquaintances and prospects about products and services that you use and like. This is something that you do everyday. You enjoy sharing great discoveries with those you care about. The twist is that network marketing companies have formalized referral system and compensates you for those referrals.
There is something KEY in above definition that points to first reason many I advise are struggling. Many people promote businesses that they don't honestly believe in. They don't honestly believe that those whom they introduce to opportunity will benefit. Therefore, it feels like a SCAM to them... since it is, according to their OWN definition, a scam... and that very subtle message is conveyed in their every communication.
People communicate on many different levels. Our body language, and even our "tone" in our emails, says a lot more than most of us realize. If you want to get scientific about it, we're electro-magnetic creature who do give off electrical vibrations that others can sense. When you promote something that you don't honestly feel good promoting, you give off bad vibes... you produce bad karma that others pick up on.
Have you ever noticed that some people "make hair on back of your neck stand up?" You're picking up and responding physically to a very powerful communication. Don't ignore it!
The simple solution to whole problem described above is to not promote anything (whether it's network marketing or using other methods of marketing) that doesn't positively impact everyone concerned! There are a lot of great products and services out there that do just that. I'll share with you a personal example...
If you've read my background, you'll know that I am a literal welfare to riches success story. I grew up so poor that at times we'd run out of kerosene to heat house in winter, and we'd go without heat until our next government subsistence check arrived. Growing up in that environment with my grandmother and two younger brothers, I didn't learn proper money management. I had no role models!
Naturally, when I discovered an on-line service that taught me that missing skill, and prevented me from squandering my growing wealth, I eagerly shared this with others that I knew needed this critical knowledge. There are so many people who don't know how to make money work FOR them. I now feel very good sharing that knowledge with others from my website at: http://www.eliteteammarketing.com/31893/
Take a few minutes and study that website! It's incredibly well-structured and works great. It doesn't have any of problems I see with websites that my clients struggle with.
If you have any of these common problems on your website you need to correct them immediately. If you can't correct them, then you need to build you own website rather than using company-provided website. If company won't let you create your own site, then you need to find another company since one you're with is PREVENTING you from succeeding. Here are common website errors we observe:
