The 3 Things Most Network Marketers Overlook When Building A Network Marketing Business Online

In this article I am going to share with you the 3 things most network marketers overlook when building a network marketing business online.

We all know that the secrets to success online are building your list, building a relationship with your list and monetize your list. But how come 95% of network marketers still fail or not getting the results that they want even if they already knew the secrets to success online?

So I am going to digest the 3 things most network marketers overlook when building a network marketing business online: network marketing business online

1. Build Your List – yes we all know that the 1st secret to online success is building your own list. But what most network marketers do is that they try to learn everything all at once. What I mean by this is that 95% of network marketers try to learn every marketing strategy that they come across from ppc, ezines, articles, blogging, facebook, twitter, video, forum, banner ads, etc…. Can you eat an elephant all at once? Of course not! So take it bit by bit. Focus on 1-2 marketing strategy that you like most and master it, become a monster on it and you will indeed see results on it, believe me.

2. Build A Relationship With Your List – again, yes we all know that the 2nd secret ingredient to online success is to build a relationship with your list. But hey….. your list are people that are looking for a leader who can guide them to reach closer to their goals. Your list are not just email address and a list of names. These are real people on the other side of your computer who are looking for sincere leaders to guide them so that they can solve their problems (i.e. financial problem). So what you should do is to “connect” with your leads. Call or email them and let them know that you are here to guide them. Ask them questions like what are they trying to accomplish…. And then provide solutions to their problems. Connecting is the key to building relationships. Always remember that because after all, this all goes back to building relationships.

3. Monetize Your List – 95% of network marketers believe that by being a member or a distributor of a great network marketing company or signed up first on a pre-launch network marketing company can make them money fast. And the first thing that you’ll notice is that they begin to post their opportunities on everyone’s facebook wall and/or other facebook groups or forums. But I am sorry to tell you that this is not the way to do it. Remember that people buy/join to people they know, like and trust. Read that again, mark that in your head and save it in your memory. In order for people to buy from you or join in your network marketing opportunity, you must gain their trust first. You do that by providing value and building relationships. Once you have established a relationship with your prospect and they already trust you, selling them stuff is not that hard anymore.

To sum it up, focus on 1-2 marketing strategy that you like best and master it. Connect to your leads by giving them a call or by sending them an email letting them know that you are here to guide them and help them reach closer to their goals and last but not the least, don’t ever try to sell stuffs if you haven’t yet built a relationship with your prospects.

So there you go. I hope that this article, “the 3 things most network marketers overlook when building a network marketing business online” has somehow helped you. If you like it, feel free to share this article to your facebook friends and retweet it.

  3. Kareem Williams says:

    Hey Coach Sonny,

    In over a month of building my business online is really not that easy. These 3 things that you’ve cited needs to be tackle one at a time and it really takes time to build any business online especially when you’re just a starter.However, with a proper mentor, focus, and consistency on your part, will greatly help you .

    Btw, I agree with Kareem, I’m excited to look forward for your video blogging Coach :).

    Thanks for sharing!

    All the best,

    Homer

    Hi Homer,

    Thanks for leaving a comment. Keep on learning and implement what you’ve learned. The 2 things that separates you from the gurus out there is time and experience. So be consistent and never give up and keep moving forward. Thanks again.

  7. Sonny Lanorias says:

    Hi Sherman,

    Thanks for your comments. Selling is the act of persuading while marketing is selling in print, on tv, on the internet (i.e.) so yes, most people think that both are the same but it is not. Thanks again for your contribution. Come back soon.

  8. Hey Sonny what’s going on my friend? Good post. The key really is to just master one strategy, but it doesn’t matter how many times we say it lol people are still gonna’ try to do them all. I mean I know I did when I first got started.

    You do one strategy for 3 weeks right and see no results whatsoever, then so ‘n so says she’s getting 10 leads a day from this other, and you jump straight to it. It really takes a while to realize that there is no magic pill. There is no one strategy that’s better than the rest. There is one that’s better for that one person though, and they need to figure out what that is.

    But I’m sure I’ll be seeing you around my friend : )

    Hi Landon,

    Thanks for stopping by. Yeah a lot of people get overwhelmed because of implementing different marketing methods all at once. This is how I got started way back lol. But when I realized it and buckled down my belt, I realized that I had to choose blogging-social media method and I focused and mastered it until I was generating 10-20 leads per day. This is what people should do (focus on 1-2 methods and master it) to get results. Thanks again.

    Sonny,
    The advice and tips that you share in this post are essential to the long-term success of any networker. Great analogy “not eating an elephant” all at once… so true, because there are so many great strategies now available, it’s so easy for one to discover them …pretty much all at once, and then try to learn and implement them all at the same time. This can lead to anxiety, and ultimately slow growth, or failure. I look forward to reading more of your content. Have an incredible day! Sye-

  11. Sonny Lanorias says:

    Hello Sye,

    Thanks for your comments. You are so right when you said that trying to learn and implement them all at once can lead to anxiety and slow growth. There are indeed a lot of systems out there that offer every kind of strategy so better not get overwhelmed on the trainings and focus on 1-2 methods that you like best and master it. Thanks again and come back soon.

  12. Aki Wood says:

    It’s true Sonny, you can’t eat an elephant in a single sitting. The online world can be quite overwhelming at times. Finding strategies to master and building a relationship with your list is going to be much more valuable than trying to choke down a gargantuan Mammoth.

    As put so well by Bill Murray in What About Bob… “Baby Steps”

  13. Hi Aki, thanks for your comments. There are many people out there who are suffering from information overload because they are trying to learn things all at once. So patience, focus and consistency are the keys. Thanks again and come back soon.
