Network Marketing Changes September 13, 2010
With two days left before the big re-launch of The 90-Day Marketer, I have identified four rather important changes to the Network Marketer version of The 90-Day Marketer.
First: Beginner Friendly
Many of the changes have been designed with the beginner in mind, because let’s face it — online network marketing is confusing as all get out . . . and it doesn’t have to be! Much of the network marketing crowd are those the either did not grow up with computers (boomers) or people that don’t have the time to learn the complicated strategies of internet marketing because of the demands of life (Moms and Dads). Not only has the content to the course been simplified, but the navigation and use of the site has also improved (I will be making a video to better explain this). So if you have been frustrated with internet marketing or scared out of your mind to take your business online . . . your solution is coming!
Second: More Marketing Options
To help give more marketing options, I have created two two separate courses with The 90-Day Marketer. One will show network marketers how to utilize the internet with a beginner friendly style. Nothing too complex, and plenty of training to use the internet, without being glued to it every minute of your business building time. The other course will tackle affiliate marketing directly, which will be for business owners, and those network marketers that actually like sophisticated methods (including myself to be honest 🙂 ).
By giving options, a network marketing leader can now give their “technophobes” and their “techno-savvy” downline members options in building their business. This allows for dramatic growth for their downline — which is what every network marketing ultimately wants.
Fourth — Lead Generation
The 90-Day Marketer is also a great lead generation tool that you can use to attract those that are looking to get into business for themselves. That is one of reasons why I created Business Owner version, with separate marketing peices, so you could find hot leads to talk to about joining your business. Most other mlm lead generation systems only have their mlm training product to sell. The biggest problem with this is most of all your leads generated through these types of systems already have a network marketing company and definitely DO NOT want to join yours. However, by promoting a product that is geared to those that want to make money online, it makes it a lot easier to introduce your business.

You Tube – should you bother? May 18, 2010
If it is — when should you or your downline start utilizing it?
Before jumping into this new marketing sensation, let’s talk about the pros and cons.
- Currently video marketing is the hottest, most effective marketing media available. Google and other search engines LOVE video and will rank them higher than web sites and will display video submission in a matter of minutes as opposed to weeks with a well crafted web page.
- Video has become substantially easier to use, especially with the user friendly enhancements and software helps that have become available in the past couple of years.
- People love to watch videos! Text will never die, but video is something that really pops, and gets attention. The majority of web viewers will always look at video more than the text around it.
- Cheap, cheap, cheap. Creating videos yourself has become so widespread that in many cases you already have all the technology right now to start making one. Almost all laptops come standard with a built in camera, microphone, and editing software. If you don’t have any of these things, you can spend a few bucks and get a top notch studio. And if you want to go super fancy you can get the new Kodak Zi8 for $150 (full HD quality), a wired lapel mic for $30, and a super easy to use HD video editor like Sony Vegas for $50. This means you can have a full fledged High Def image, with crystal clear audio and edit it all together like the pros for a little over $200 – that’s it!. Of course, you could go more fancy and spend 20 to 30 thousand, but it would be overkill. Your videos aren’t going onto big screen TVs – they just need to look great on a computer screen.
Ah, but there are some drawbacks that you need to be aware of . . .
- It can be very time consuming: Unless you do a ton of them and develop a system, it will take a long time to start churning out your videos. Expect delays as you start out. Then once you get better at it, you may even take longer because you’ll want to fancy them up. Either way, video takes a long time.
- Not for the beginner: While it’s true that video production has decreased in difficultly, it’s still complicated. And if you tap out at e-mail and web surfing, you may want to skip video marketing altogether.
- Will your videos stand out? I think you’ll agree that with the explosion of internet videos has come an abundant of mediocre to down right horrible marketing videos. These videos are so amateurish and low quality that they do more harm than good. Experience is a great teacher, so bad videos can be put to good use as they help tutor you to become better, but if you want to speed things up, I would encourage getting the training you need so you can STAND OUT from the beginning.
- Is it necessary? In many cases video is not necessary. Videos are great as icing on your marketing cake, which means that there are many other foundational things you need to have in place and once you have them in place, video can vault your marketing to a high level. However, if you do video first, your foundation will be so weak that all the hard work of video production will do very little good to your bottom line.
**There are some mid-range applications that are easy for the beginner, are quick to create, take no equipment, yet look great. Such applications, for a monthly fee will take your text, images (which they provide a library to choose from), and music (with their library) and put together a compelling, interesting video in very little time. A super advantage! But. . . they do have limitations. These videos are designed to be short and will not work as a consistent stream of information. Excellent for a message that you want to punctuate – but not a great platform for regular content (but this could be a matter of opinion – I welcome any comments that think I’m crazy on this point).
My advice to you
Before video, make sure you have a strong foundation:
- Get the Big Picture of marketing
- Set up your blog or web site
- Get your marketing tools in place
- Develop your copy writing skills
- Create a marketing plan
- Build a following
- Have a sales process in place
- Have a retention strategy ironed out
When it comes time to hit video hard – you will want to make the most of it. And with a solid marketing foundation, you’re sure to come out a winner!
