I guess that you don’t like secrets. But they are here also. And you wouldn’t read it for the first time: Every business has it’s secrets. An internet marketing business also. And if you know the rules (or the secrets) from an offline network marketing business, you can imagine, that here we have them too. Different, but they are here also.
Actually there are really a lot of such stories. Almost every newspaper, magazine, webpage or just plain blog has them quite often.
Well, reason is really simple. We like to read them. A story of overnight success is a proof, that everybody can achieve his/hers part of success. And as those stories are written, such an overnight success is achievable literally overnight.
Whatever the goal of a person who achieved such a success is, everything is possible. Losing weight overnight, falling in love with the most beautiful woman overnight, landing a dream job overnight, earning millions of dollars overnight.
You are wrong (sorry …).
Actually before I dipped deep into this subject, I thought, that being a nice guy is what leads to desired business success. But now I understand that this is attraction marketing. After I read a lot about this subject it is clear to me, that that in general means that you care about the other person. It took me quite a while before this was clear in my mind. I was selfishy thinking that some pictures, videos and posts on blog and social media will lead people to like me.
Generating leads is for sure the first part of your successful online marketing business. Without them you are lost in a jungle and you can just dream about your success. But when you get them you finished just the first part of your job. Sometimes this is 80%, but this is really rarely. Generally with a lead you get just their email address and maybe their first seven or eight dollars for basic training. Then comes the real opportunity and real work. It comes with a follow-up, many of them or even a lot of them.
In a recent poll about most important things in building a successful network marketing career, there were five things recognized as the most important one’s: leads, follow up, duplication and training, marketing tools and credibility.
We will address all of them in next blog posts, but we want to start with the one on first position: Leads generation.
