Network Marketing Tools You Need
Maybe you've already realized how a simple set of powerful online Network Marketing Tools can accelerate the growth of the online portion of your network marketing business, or maybe that realization will come as you read this article.
Don't get me wrong, I love “old school” recruiting methods: contacting friends and family, booking home parties, and one-on-one networking to build a constant flow of leads. The old methods work, but they're slow — especially if you're just starting and don't already have a huge circle of influence.
Today, thing have changed due to the Internet.
Here are some statistics worth thinking about:
– Someone launches a new home business every 11 seconds.
– Over 3 million people go online daily searching for a way to generate income online.
With the right set of network marketing tools, you can position yourself to help as many of those people as possible. And, as Zig Ziglar said,
You can have everything in life you want if you will just help other people get what they want.
What are the network marketing tools that every successful online network marketer needs?
If you can only have one, your first Internet network marketing tool should be an autoresponder. For those of you unfamiliar with autoresponders, they are the tool that lets you send emails to an entire list of people all at once. In fact, as I discussed in my earlier post Your Network Marketing List: Quickstart Method, you can begin to build your list with just this tool.
Lead Capture System
Although an autoresponder may be the only online network marketing tool you absolutely must have, you'll accelerate your success with a complete suite of tools, including an integrated lead capture system. That system should include lead capture forms where you can send leads and that automatically adds everyone who “opts in” to your autoresponder list so that you can keep in touch with them until they opt out or buy.
You will also need a sales page with great professionally written copy to help convert your prospects to your business. Company pages can work well as part of an overall system but tend to perform less well on their own.
Your Personal Blog
A blog is a great way to stay in touch with your audience and there are numerous ways to monetize your blog. One of the easiest of those is to use the content to attract people to your network marketing business. You can (and should) add a lead capture form on your blog so that people have a way to join your mailing list.
Webinar (web seminar) marketing is an excellent way to establish yourself as an expert in your field, a first step in attraction marketing. It may not be the first marketing technique you use, but eventually you will want to add web conferencing to your suite of Internet network marketing tools.
Training on a variety of topics is a valuable, even mandatory, tool in your suite of Internet network marketing tools. Network marketing leaders never stop learning, and sharing their knowledge in a wide range of subjects including marketing, sales, attraction marketing, personal development, leadership … the list goes on.
This is the minimum set of online “network marketing tools” you'll want to have in your marketing toolbox. If you try to assemble these on your own, you're also going to need some supporting tools such as web hosting and a place to buy a name for your website(s).
Your Ready-Made Suite of Network Marketing Tools
Fortunately, there are several systems available online that have already put together a collection of the most important of these tools. All you have to do is plug in and start promoting your network marketing business.
My favorite of these systems offers a complete collection of network marketing tools built around a business that you can also promote while earning up to 100% commissions. When you decide to promote the business, the sales funnel comes complete with professionally written sales pages and autoresponder message sequences.
