The first strategy and most important is to get your own a self hosted website or blog and start promoting your own website and not the companies replicated website. Promoting your own website and not the companies allows you to brand yourself and stand out in a crowd. Promoting the company and/or product is how most inexperienced online business owners fail. Your personalized website helps to educate and qualify your prospects and has them calling and emailing you.
The second strategy is the importance of building a list using an auto responder and build a relationship with your list. Company sites build a list for the company and not for you personally. When you build your own list you can promote other products and services to your list and to generate additional income through affiliate products and services.
The third strategy is to have a sales funnel with additional products and multiple streams of income that can be promoted and create additional income. This sales funnel will also get your down-line and affiliates into positive cash flow quickly, allowing to generate a full time income in weeks instead of months.
The fourth strategy is you need a training platform that can be duplicated, can teach and instruct your distributors and/or affiliates to duplicate your success without you holding their hands and having your distributors and/or affiliates waste your time. This training platform is generic and can train anyone in Direct Sales, (MLM) Multi Level Marketing, Network Marketing and creates an income from the 95 percent of the people that do not get involved with your primary business.
The fifth strategy is having a system or platform that allows you to gradually get your primary business opportunity in front of your prospect. This system allows your to build relationships with hundreds, even thousands of people. This type of Business has always been a relationship business, and by building so many relationships, you will sponsor more distributors in a month than most online business do in a year.
The key to any online business is to find something that works and then focus on what works. If you would like to implement the five strategies and give your business the secret advantage and become part of the 5 percent of successful online businesses instead of the 95 percent that are failing.
