Many people starting a business on the Internet are
attracted by the possibility that they can do something that will generate a nice, dependable, monthly income while
working from the comforts of their own home. They want control of their time and their lives. They want to be able
to spend more time with their family and friends. MOST never achieve this!
Many people build a website and get involved in promoting affiliate products in the Internet marketing niche. Many of
these products are great, but have a short shelf life. So the excitement around the product generates a few sales
when the product is first released, and promoted by "everyone and his brother" - but the sales drop off
Many Internet marketers simply go from promoting product to product... jumping on the latest buzz as soon as they hear
about it... to get a small slice of the pie before it quickly becomes OLD news. Many people do earn a better than
average income promoting these product. I do. However, being massively successful using this model requires more
agility than many still learning the "Internet marketing
game" have yet developed.
Some people take a look at network marketing or multi-level marketing
(MLM). They look at all of the nice matrices, and fancy pay plans, and decide to give that a shot. Most of
those people never make a penny of profit. I KNOW because I
talk to, or get emails from, many of them. They contact me asking for something that offers a more assured return.
I share with the struggling network marketers my experiences. I confide in them that I've dabbled in many of
the same businesses, and had both failures and successes. I've even written a training manual for network marketers
All of my failures were due to the same two reasons. 1) The product generally sucked... and 2) The system being used by
those who were successful wasn't easily duplicated - or simply wasn't passed along.
Problem number 1 above CAN'T be overcome. If the product offered by a company stinks, the market will soon discover
this and all of your efforts will be in vain. There are a lot of products in MLM like this, and that's part of what
gives MLM a bad name. I've read of the miraculous healing properties of all kinds of concoctions and given a few a
try. None of them made me feel noticeably better... when I didn't try to "convince" myself that they did. So I
couldn't ethically promote these to anyone.
In all fairness, I may have not tried some of the products long enough... but then again, I don't like being a lab
rat! I HAVE seen products produced using solid science that did offer many health benefits. None of these were products
that I wanted to be stuck with a basement-full of though! You see, when a product works great, the market naturally
spreads the word and you don't have to REQUIRE anyone to buy it.
I'll share with you in a minute, a product that I do like and have invested many hours into investigating and telling
family and friends about.
But first let's look at why many in MLM, even with a good product often fail. That reason is that they're not
provided with a duplicable system that they can use to
market the product and to train others. By definition, if the system is effective and duplicable, they just need to
plug into it, and do what they are trained to do - and it works. All of the frustrated network marketers that you
talk to obviously haven't been provided with such a system, or they haven't been provide with enough support to get
them started properly.
The title of this article is "A Seldom Discussed Internet Marketing Fact!" That seldom discussed fact is that many of
the most successful in the "Internet marketing" niche don't focus on Internet marketing products at all... or very
little. They stay away from the "herd" that frantically promotes the latest and greatest. Many of them make MOST of
their money from network marketing.
I know, you didn't know that. The reason that you didn't know that FACT is that we do it without much fanfare. A few
bad apples over the years have given MLM a bad name. That's a roadblock that's best overcome by quietly showing people,
one-on-one, what we are doing and why it's working. Networking, by definition is about telling your contacts
about something worth sharing. That doesn't require any hype or yelling and screaming.
I've just revealed to you how many others, and I build nice, dependable, monthly, residual incomes without having
to chase the latest fad. It's how you get involved with a company and find yourself still doing well 4 or 5 years
So now you know "the rest of the story."
If you'd like to take a look at my favorite network marketing company, I invite you to look at:
This shows the duplicable system members of my team use to market a product that provides real value to our family and
friends. It's also a product that you can use the Internet marketing skill you've ALREADY developed to market very
successfully. There are people making 5, and even six figure, residual incomes every month with this one :-)
