Is network marketing a good business?
Well, that depends. It is right for some people but not for others.
The ‘right’ people understand that in order for a network marketing business to ‘work’, you need to market properly. If you can get your business in front of people who want what you offer, you will be successful. Period. But if you are trying to market to people who have no interest in your offer, you will find yourself frustrated and disillusioned by the whole industry.
It took me almost 10 years to learn that the only way to build a network marketing business, or any business, is to learn to market first.
And when I understood that… everything changed.
It doesn’t even matter what company you your building, as long as you know how to market. You can market anything and be successful if the right people are finding you. So if network marketing is your home business of choice, the I suggest choosing a stable company with products that you believe in and learning to market.
My problem over the years was that I thought the answer lay in the company and so I jumped around looking for the perfect business, like so many people. I was looking for ‘the best network marketing company’, when the answer was inside me all along.
It didn’t help that I was also in a toxic relationship when I started, and I realize now that I was looking for a way out, rather than looking for a business. And that was not a healthy starting point.
But then something happened that changed my life. My marriage ended and I stepped back into my power. I started to believe in myself and in the home based business industry again. And all the internet marketing skills I had been learning suddenly made sense.
For the past year and a half, I have grown and changed in so many positive ways, and most importantly I have regained my confidence and am moving in a direction all my own. I am embracing the path ahead, and enjoying the journey into true entrepreneurship.
I am no longer looking to build a home based business as an escape route, but rather, as a way to continue my self improvement, and because I believe the Universe has set it in my path for a reason.
This time around, I am building my online business differently.
- My primary focus is to help home business entrepreneurs use the internet to grow their business, mainly through blogging and video marketing. If someone joins my in my company… great. If not, that’s great too.
- I don’t do home parties. I market on the internet to reach people who looking for a way to build a home business, and who see the ‘big picture’ and how important it is to take action now to create a life you own over working for someone else your whole life. I want to help you do the same.
- I am consciously balancing work and pleasure. It’s important to gauge your time when you work on the internet so it doesn’t consume you. I am integrating the things I always said I would do more of once I was successful… now. That means painting, yoga, spending time with my kids, and taking more vacations. Why wait to do the things that bring you joy?
I am building a network marketing company through social media and online marketing. I find a few people daily (well, they find me) and when they ask me for information, I give an honest outline of what I do and how I do it. Some of them become customers, some of them start working with me, and others keep looking for whatever will suit them.
If you are building a network marketing company, I want to help you get found by your perfect market. I want to help you create a branded blog and attract your perfect clients. It’s really fun once you get going and start getting found online.
Remember, with today’s technology, so much is possible.
Life’s an adventure so do everything you can in the short time you’ve got.
