How I Built a Successful Network Marketing Business Online With Leads That Came to Me
Ready to learn what might happen for you if you take your business online as well as offline? I’m excited to share some possibilities with you about what the tools of the internet can do for your business.
In today’s Street Smart Wealth Podcast, I’m going to share my story for how, when and WHY I took my Network Marketing business online. And, just what happened when I did.
I went to the top of one company, and did it again a second time, so you can do this, too!
I’m also going to share some resources that I used, still use and how to get yourself out online as well.
Please remember that I had 6 years of experience under my belt before I went online. It’s important to develop those business skills of communicating with people first.

I was an average home based business owner (a mom with two pre-school aged children, a husband gone half the month and a huge desire for more, ha!) before the Internet.
I was not setting any records. I had success and did make money, but much of it was a struggle; much of it consisted of ways of doing the business that did not appeal to me. I made my warm market list; contacted people and developed the skills I needed to talk to people about my business.
I joined networking groups, the Chamber of Commerce and did all of the traditional methods you hear about. I struggled with contacting people in the beginning, and never wanted to be someone who chased my friends, family, neighbors and anyone who came within “3 feet of me!” Heard that story before?
You’ll hear a lot of debate about “old school vs. new school” marketing techniques in Direct Sales. Both work, and never think otherwise. I do believe that you should always notify your warm market list about your business.
Anyone who tries to tell you that your warm market list is dead and not to bother is trying to sell you something. I promise!
Remember this – everyone who goes online looking for a business has a warm market already, and chances are they know someone with a business that might interest them. But, they have not been notified.
Also, I still am involved in many forms of offline networking – BNI, Chamber of Commerce, Meetups, etc. I know the power in building relationships online, and then taking them offline. Don’t discount your local area for making online connections!
I was not (and am not) a technical person, so don’t think I had strong computer background. I didn’t. Just a big desire. I didn’t know computer and internet jargon.
What I did know – The facts and figures associated with this growing phenomenon called The Internet was/is staggering. I wanted to be a part of it. I knew it was the answer to my prayers for growing a successful business.
I knew this was going to be my ticket to success in MLM. I knew that it was going to take some effort, and it would be the best decision I would ever make.
I knew this was how a stay-at-home mom with small children was going to make Network Marketing work!

The challenge I hear from people all of the time is that they aren’t sure how to get started. I can help! I’ve done it and am happy to share with you just how I did it; the tools I use; and what it really takes.
Be careful and do your research carefully. You have surely seen all of the hype and scams that are all over the Internet. Why do people do that? They do it because they don’t know what they are doing and it’s never going to work. That is NOT what builds a successful business.
Things You Should Know
Even online, Network Marketing is still all about building relationships. It’s not the same as just making a one time affiliate product sale. We are building teams of people.
There is an element of hard work involved. It’s much more than throwing up a website and expecting the world to join you. You must have a passion and a drive that keeps you burning the midnight oil in the beginning, developing your online marketing system; your marketing funnels and your following.
Do you have a passion that will fuel this?
I believe that marketing successfully on the Internet is more of an art than a science. It is an art that is well worth learning because the rewards can be enormous.
As I like to say – “This is not your father’s Network Marketing business!”
You can build a successful, business from your home, without ALWAYS leaving it! I am! And, you can also build a successful local business, sponsoring others in your community using the tools of Social Media Marketing to find; establish a relationship; meet with and ultimately bring them into your business.
It has worked so well for me that I was named the Top Gun Recruiter five years out of seven in one company!
And, was the 2011 and 2012 Top Sponsoring Team Builder in my current company; I was named to my company’s “Eagle’s Nest Advisory Panel” for all of 2012, and so far, the first Panel for 2013.
Many who I have coached and who have used these techniques are also among the top ten recruiters as well.
And, I did it by getting people to come to me. You can, too, and my training guides listed below in the resources will teach you everything I used to get started and what I use today, after more than 13 years.
Here is the checklist you need to be successful, and what I teach:
How to Create Your Online Marketing Hub and Business
How to Create an Email List of Prospective Customers and Business Partners
How to Build Relationships Online and Establish a Following
How to Create Marketing Funnels: Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc.

Remember, you can do this – I have – so can you. I share the resources I use and believe in. Some are my own products and some are affiliate programs. That’s the way the internet works – pretty cool huh? You’ve heard me talk about multiple streams of income – this is how you do that!
