8 Steps to Online Network Marketing Success

Jan 11, 2008
The world of Network Marketing has found it's place online. The rules have changed, and so have the players. Are you ready to succeed in this business without ever leaving your home?

What I am about to share with you is probably not something you have heard before. You see, it is completely possible to have a successful network marketing business...online. How? Well, it requires you to play by an entirely different set of rules. Ones that you may not even be aware exist. Ones your upline is almost certainly not promoting.

Here are the 8 essential steps to profiting from an online MLM business.

1.Acquire Business Skills

This is vital to having a successful Multilevel Marketing business. Your business is not a hobby. If you want your business to succeed, you need to treat it like a business. You need to go to "work" everyday. You need to record profits and expenses, file taxes, and acquire any basic business skills that you are currently lacking.

2.Educate Yourself on Online MLM

The online Network Marketing world is different from its offline counterpart. Offline, you need to find prospects. Online, you want your prospects to come to you. Do you know how to accomplish this?

The first step, and it is vital if you want to do MLM online is to educate yourself on how it works, why it is different, and what you need to do in order to succeed. Remember, the information your upline has given you probably only pertains to the offline world.


A carnal sin in the Multilevel Marketing world seems to be diversification, yet that is exactly what you need to do online. When you diversify your income streams, you are able to earn extra cash to get you through the early financially straining days of building your business, and you also allow prospects to find you in different ways. Do not be afraid to broaden your financial horizons. DO NOT put all your eggs in one basket.

4.Make a One Year Plan

Network Marketing does not happen overnight. Your business will take time, real effort, and money. Plan on working without significant results for at least a year. But make sure you plan. If you set a goal for yourself, and break down steps you need to take in order to reach that goal, you can accomplish a lot in one year's time, and build the foundation of a phenomenal business.

5.Pick a Company

If you are not already involved in multilevel marketing, now is the time to pick a company. No, you don't want to do this first. By picking a company now, you have avoided the emotional ploys most companies use to get you pepped up. You now are able to make a clear, level headed decision about what opportunity will work best for you. If you already have a company, now would be the time to reexamine it to make sure that it is in your best interest to proceed.

6.Find a Niche

After deciding on a company and product, you need to figure out what niche market you will be advertising to. What groups of people need your product or opportunity? How can you present your product or opportunity to them in a way that meets their needs? This step is vital to building a successful business. You cannot market to everyone. You need to narrow the field.

7.Build a Website

After finding your company, your niche market, and getting an online network marketing education, you need to put it all together into forming a great website. DO NOT rely on your company sponsored replicated site. In fact, don't even mention your duplicated site on your personal site. This site will be for finding your niche market and getting them interested in you, and whatever opportunity you are promoting. Signing them up for your program will come later.

8.Just Do It

The most important step to online network marketing success is to just do it! Get off your bum, stop over analyzing, stop procrastinating, and get on with it! Your future can only change if you do.
