Three Proven Ways to Grow Your Network Marketing Business, Using the Internet

They say attending events is the key to having success is network marketing and today, but there is one particular generic event I attended this past October which was a game changer for many.

Spending a week in Vegas for many, including myself, can prove to be a dangerous proposition.

The booze, the partying, the gambling, the… well… you get the idea…

However, for this event, ‘discipline’ was the name of the game for me!

Ok, I did have my share of sipping tequila, but if you know me… that’s pretty normal.

And I did skip out on business meetings to grab a seat at the Sports Book to watch game 4 of Dodgers vs Mets playoff game. (Damn you, Mets!!)

Aside from that, I was there to learn and to network and I was in bed every night by 11:00pm and up in the morning by 8:00am!

With all the excitement surrounding Tony Robbins, Bob Proctor, Robert Kiyosaki and countless other superstar entrepreneurs who would be speaking in front of 8,000 people at the main event, I was actually more excited about something else…

You see, last year, I had attended “the event before the event” – exclusively for people in network marketing who are making 6-figures or more per year in their business.

I wrote about part of my experience surrounding the event, however since we were actually sworn to secrecy last year, I could only really talk about the personal conversations I had with other 6-figure and 7-figure earners, since that was outside the event.

Nonetheless, this year, I was excited to once again, be at this exclusive event.

And my excitement boiled down to ONE BIG REASON…

Why Company Leaders are Secretly Using the Internet to Prospect & Recruit, While Telling Their Downline to Keep It “Old School”

Truth is, I always knew that the biggest ‘internet network marketers’ who built massive businesses online actually weren’t the ones who were public about it.

Out of necessity, the biggest ‘internet networkers’ who’ve built $500,000 and up per year businesses, have had to keep it a secret! I can think of one of them right now, who actually built his business with one of the top 5 MLM companies in the world.

My sense, is that as our world and interactions becomes more digitized, MLM companies and the ‘Old School’ camp won’t be able to hold out much longer and will have to admit that the internet can and WILL play a crucial role in their businesses.

It’s already happening.

My warning to leaders in the industry is simple…

The Problem with Prospecting & Recruiting with Social Media

This October will mark 10 years (2005) since I entered the network marketing arena and my life took a crazy detour into the world of entrepreneurship, deep personal development and experiencing more negativity than any human should have to endure.

The good news is that my story in this industry has a happy ending.

I quit job as an engineer 2 1/2 years after joining the industry in 2008, became a 6-figure earner in direct sales by 2009, built a 7-figure internet company by 2012 and I am now the co-owner of an online direct sales company, which I first joined as an affiliate back in 2006.

My journey however was not without many fumbles, embarrassing moments and more prospecting faux pas than I care to share and I hope my friends, family & strangers I attempted to prospect have long forgotten the things I did. LOL

But here’s a few, so you have an idea…
