Multi-Level Marketing

by Rahimah Sultan

Multi-level marketing companies are legal although structured almost exactly like a pyramid scheme. A pyramid scheme is a non-sustainable business that involves the exchange of money, usually in the form of a sign-up fee, and usually has no product or service.

 

Some major indicators of a pyramid scheme in multi-level marketing are:

 

1) Focus on recruitment of new people rather than product sales
2) Claims of making money through growing a downline rather than your own product sales
3) Asking distributors to purchase expensive inventory
4) Asking you to sign a contract or pay money before you have time to read all of the paperwork
5) Products that may serve as a cover for recruitment

 

The ongoing debate is whether these companies and programs are legitimate business opportunities.

It’s also no coincidence that some of the most famous quotes from throughout history are structured in three parts, nor is it surprising that the Rule of Three also works wonders in the world of comedy.

 

Use the rule of three in your internet marketing so that you are more engaging as a writer.

In order to accomplish anything you must take the first step toward it. Consider what needs to be done and make a plan. You lay out your goal and the steps to reach it. It is like putting one foot in front of the other in order to walk, run or sell… you get my drift. Here are four steps for internet marketing to get you started.

 

Say you want to start an online business and think it will not work for you because you do not know how to sell. Do not let that stop you. Do what you are good at and learn the rest as you build your business. That’s like putting one foot in front of the other, taking one step at a time while gaining momentum.

 

Set up a blog and write about what you know. The articles should be about your area of expertise and how to do what you do. Good content is the backbone of marketing. Your content should provide value, solve an existing problem that people may be experiencing, create connections, form relationships, and build an audience.

 

Add a call to action with a link to be clicked for more information or to buy or to follow.

 

Use an autoresponder to create a mailing list of the people who visit your site so you can connect with them to provide help, solve problems, and continue to deliver great content. This does not involve selling.

 

You can be social by using a couple of the major social media platforms, which will in turn get you visitors without you selling direct. Always be about helping people and you will gain customers.

 

So, do what you are good at and use these tips as your first steps toward long-term online success. To summarize:

 

Step 1) Set up your blog
Step 2) Provide content
Step 3) Add call to action
Step 4) Create mailing list

 

This is selling without always being direct. Once you have a list of prospects, you can email them every so often with your offers. Use these Four Steps for Internet Marketing for your long-term business success.
