But you’ll need more than that, you’ll need a well-round assortment of marketing strategies combining both online and more traditional methods. A multi-faceted approach because each facet supports and reinforces the other and it gives you more exposure. You want to be remembered, and it takes more than one, or two, or even ten “impressions” before you really stick in someone’s brain. And then you’ll want to stay visible so they don’t forget about you the next time they want, well, whatever it is you have.
Use the internet. You have probably realised by now that the old school methods of building any network marketing business is on the way out. While these methods will still show some results the uptake is pretty low. The old method of lists of leads limits you in the number of people you can contact but by using the power of the internet marketing the world is waiting to be contacted!
As you and your business are important at the end of the day therefore you should pay attention to how much they ask about your business. They must devote the time to understand you and your business.
Despite this, I would still recommend that you move your business to a paid solution as soon as possible. The reasons for this? A domain name and a hosting account are both assets for you and they allow you to develop a business brand. They give you something to advertise which you own; any third party solution is never as reliable. But, if you are just starting out, some of the free options can be invaluable. Invest the money back into the business once you make it and you can take your online marketing forward.
Time strategies are where the true branding and marketing success are. A lot of marketers still think that free advertising is bad marketing and don’t want to waste their time on it. So anyone who actually is willing to do the work will reach so many more people. I’ve heard marketing be compared to fishing, if you are paying using advertising or pay per click services you are fishing in the same fishing holes as everyone else and competition is fierce. You want to get out of the fishing hole and into the open ocean.
Your biggest obstacle will be getting the names that you are thinking of using. Most of the generic names like cars dot com and houses dot com are taken. Some may be available for sale but it will cost you an arm and a leg.
How many weight loss programs, get rich quick schemes, and self-styled gurus have you seen on the Internet? There are millions of people out there copying each other hoping to tap into the 100’s of millions of people searching on the Internet hoping to get rich. Kind of deflates your balloon doesn’t it?
