Sound familiar ?
How many times have you received email to say that by joining company X you will have instant success.
And how many websites suggest by using their system you can build an instant list of thousands.
It is possible for the major players on the Internet, but what they don't tell you is that most of the people these "players" signup in a new Internet company are already on their opt-in list.
Here are some well used concepts used in promoting new Internet Companies.
Believe it or not !
1. It will only take you 5 hours each week.
(a) you only want to earn a few $`s
(b) you already have a large optin list to promote to.
(c) you have M-oney to invest in advertising.
(d) you are totally organized, focused and a natural marketer.
What they don`t tell you.
With commitment and the proper training, yes it is possible.
2. Its easy, anyone can make M-oney online.
But only if you have some business background or the Company supplies you with quality training, support and any other tools you need to promote their product. You also need a supportive sponsor and up-line, who are willing to help when needed.
3. Its soooo easy that everyone is do-ing it.
"Slight Exaggeration" here as only about 20% of US families or adults are currently members of Internet companies. There are many other people who are promoting Amway and other Companies but not over the internet. It is estimated that 50% of Americans will have had, or will be operating some sort of business from the comfort of home by the end of next year.
Most experts suggest only about the top 5% of Internet Marketers are making a good income and another 10% are part time earners.
4. By working over the Internet you will be able to work your own hours.
Yes this statement is true, but you still have to "work"
Yes you have more flexibility on when you work, say early in the morning or in the evening if you are part time. You still need to put in the hours, so having a plan and a set of goals is an advantage. If you don`t reach your goals then you will need to re-access them, are they realistic or do you need to increase the hours you work to succeed or take a different approach.
5. Our system guarantees success.
What is success, my idea on success will differ from yours.
Many websites offer a number of tools and provide promotion material but not everyone knows how to best utilize them. This is where training and support is a must. Provide it to your downline and expect it from your up-line.
Ongoing quality training and support are the two most under estimated "tools" or requirements many companies "say" they provide but either not everyone has access or knows how to use them.
6. Its so easy you will make m-oney even while you sleep.
This is a fact, the Internet does not sleep, but you will only make m-oney from sales or signups if you put in the effort.
7. Its cool because I don`t have to talk with people face to face.
Sure you can sit at your computer and promote your website, send out emails to prospects, network on ICQ and Ryze etc...
But you will find the big players are always talking to prospects either on the phone or while at the shops and gas station.
I personally have my ICON Communicator open most of the day while I am online and most days I will have a person (guest) who I have never meet log in, so I have to know the product or services I am promoting to be able to share or answer any questions my may guest has.
The more practice you have at speaking to strangers the more comfortable and at ease you become. And this is coming from someone who doesn`t like public speaking.
Practice makes perfect.
One of the most powerful 4 letter words ever devised by man.
Can you promote on the internet for f`ree.
The hidden costs. You need a computer, power to run the computer, an Internet connection, office supplies....
Yes it is possible to promote your chosen company or service for minimum cost, but it will usually take longer to get those positive results. Time is m-oney. What is your time worth? Any business requires time and usually some investment to get off the ground.
9. Build yourself a website and watch the sales roll in.
I recommend every Internet Marketer should have their own website for a number of reasons. First is that you are able to create introduction pages to companies, products or services. You are then able to send out email using a URL or website link that won`t be filtered by ISP`s as they are known to filter or delete email that contains affiliated links.
Secondly there are very few search engines that you can list your affiliated website with. So by having your own Domain and website you are able to list it with search engines. But again by being listed does not necessarily guarantee you sales.
10. You "will" receive spillover.
Some companies and individuals promote to prospects that they will receive spillover.
I must be really missing something here as I can count on my fingers the number of people I have received in my downline as spillover in 3 years on the internet.
Yes spillover does happen for some, but don`t count on it.
When starting any business you need to have a plan of action and a maximum budget you can spend on products or services to advertise and promote your business.
Register a domain and create a website.
Only consider joining companies where you have full access to support, regular training, provide popular or unique, sort after products that offer a residual income with a positive compensation plan.
A company I can happily recommend to any first time marketers is ItsYourNet. They offer special trainings on building websites, publishing Ezines, using ICQ for networking along with marketing and even supply you f`ree of cost, top quality software to keep your computer safe.
The ItsYourNet "back office area" has an ever increasing list of promotional material and resources.
