OK, so you have a blog set up and you’ve joined a good network marketing company. If you have not joined a “primary” network marketing/MLM company, please read my review of the MLM company I chose and why; read more here. Now what? How do you begin to drive traffic to your blog and capture pages, get subscribers, leads, and ultimately folks to join your MLM business? My name is Christopher Brown, and thanks for reading my post and visiting my blog!
Here are some ideas that can help you sort it out. My advice is to pick a few, like 3 or 4 maximum, and then commit to those until you start seeing results. One of the biggest mistakes new MLM promoters and members make is to start trying to do everything all at once! Don’t fall for the shiny-object syndrome and keep switching to different systems and products. You will just waste your time when you keep starting over each time you switch. Pick something, get a plan together, and take action. All of the marketing methods work if you will take action.
Keep track of your progress and notes for each category you pursue. If you want a great online system that has training on all of these marketing areas, plus ready made sales funnels for interested people to go straight into your autoresponder, read this article for the system I chose after looking for weeks and weeks at every system I could find out there. If you do choose this one and sign up on my team, I will help you along with site creation, conference calls, and you can contact me anytime you need help.
Here are the traffic/lead generation areas I focused on when I got started:
Facebook PPC: Facebook Pay-Per-Click (FB PPC) is a great way to generate targeted traffic to your site or Facebook Fan Page if you have the money to invest in it. FB PPC can reach more than 800 million FB suscribers (and growing). You get to choose your audience by location, age and interests so you can dial in your advertising. You set the daily budget you are comfortable with so you don’t overspend. You can adjust your daily budget at anytime and you to pay only when people click your ad. You can also set it up where you pay (less usually) when you ad is shown to people. Again, the online lead system I use has several awesome trainings on using Facebook PPC.
Ad Coop: One of the other ways I started was to invest and join a group of people in an advertising coop. You can search out online advertising coops to get started. In my case, my upline team of the online system I use, have a private facebook group and it was a simple matter to pay and join the coop when I saw the FB posting about it. I saw leads hitting my funnels within a day. If you have some extra money (usually about a $100 US in my group) to join, this is a quick way to get leads coming in. All the folks in the coop put in money, and then the leader of the coop purchases a certain amount of advertising using various online sources and each member gets their respective share of leads from it.
Facebook Prospecting: This is an area that can yield great results, but not immediately. I search out 5-10 folks a day and reach out to them to get to know them. You have to be very careful about spamming on Facebook and I advise getting some training on using this method. Once you get to know them and find out what they do, the topic of what you do will normally come up and this is your chance to gently let them know what you do.

Blog Content Marketing: If you want to brand yourself and get folks interested in you as a leader, you need your own blog. I have been in MLM and online marketing since 2005 when I put my first website online. You need a “nerve center” that can be the focus of your content, expressionism, and creativity. Starting a blog is not hard, and I’ll help you if you need it. You can tie your blog to Facebook, Twitter, and lots of other areas and put links to your blog in many different areas on the internet. All of it flows back to you as a business leader.
If you are going to generate content and market to people using your blog, driving traffic to your posts will be the most challenging aspect of all it. If you have writer’s block, find a mentor to help you write. If you need WordPress setup help, find someone to help you set it up (contact me and I’m happy to help you). And if you have the extra monthly money to spend (after all serious businesses require investment) consider this syndication service that I use.
It is based on a tribe concept and you agree to syndicate (push out to all your social media “followers”) and they do the same for you. There are different levels of membership and you can start free. I took this advice to join TribePro from my upline sponsor and I’ve never looked back. Click here to learn more about it. Every time I create a post, it is automatically syndicated from many folks that have agreed in my “tribes” to push it out. I do the same for them. It gets traffic to your posts and website, and also generates backlinks to your site. It is a win-win. I would advise starting with the free way which requires more manual interaction, but you can learn the system.
I know you have probably heard of all of these and all are simple to do, but can be time-consuming. Many are simple and there are probably a hundred more out there that will work. The biggest thing to do, is COMMIT and TAKE ACTION. I’ve done it myself, I keep researching, surfing, reading and learning and then get stuck with analysis-paralysis. My online lead system may not be for you, and that is OK. If it is I look forward to working with you. But most of all I wish you success in all you do! The online marketing and MLM community of people around the world is a great, positive bunch of folks. Nearly all of us are happy to help out new people and all you have to do is take the first steps and get going!
