Need Leads for your MLM Business?
Starting on a budget?
CO-OP Advertising for MLM
Now you can start with a small budget and share advertising with others
to get your online business marketing started.
Many of the best lead and advertising packages available are at higher cost than most online marketers starting out can afford so we have participated in co-op advertising to share the cost and purchase larger packages. The problem is that it is hard to find co-ops that are generic so that they can be used by any MLM or Network Marketing company.
How will it work?
We find (and you can suggest) advertising deals to reach people that want to start a home business or simply make more money. The advertising may be Banner or Text link impressions or Click thru’s or actual leads. What ever the results of the ad is will be shared by all evenly on a per share basis.
For example: We find a reputable ad package that has an estimated 500 clicks and they sell for $400. We sell 10 shares for $45 each and lets say 10 people bought 1 share each, then each person would get about 50 clicks to their web page. You can buy 1 share or multiple shares but you do not have to buy the whole package like most of their customers.
Another Example: We find a deal of 10,000 impressions for $100. We would sell 10 shares at $12 each and each share holder would get 1,000 impressions per share they purchased.
We would list the deals on our website with what the ad package is all about, how many shares will be available, what the shares will cost each, and all the details. You will get tracking information as well.
We will do most of the advertising using a URL Rotator which works like this: We have 10 share buyers so we have slots for 10 web pages. Each share holder chooses the page they would like to advertise and sends it to us. We set up a page that goes to the rotator so that each time a visitor comes to that page he/she sees the next page in line. You can see one working right now by going to this page. You will see that each time you click this link a different web page is featured.
Can I buy more than one share? Yes. You can buy 1 share or multiple shares.
When do the ad packages actually begin running? Within 48 hours of all the shares being sold.
How will I pay? We will set up a paypal button for each ad co-op.
What happens if all the shares do not sell? If we are unable to sell all the shares we will simply refund all the purchases back though paypal. We will also purchase shares for our own sites so we hope this will not be an issue.
What ad companies will you use? We will use companies that we have testimonials from and believe are reputable. please understand that if you see 1,000,000 visitors advertised for $50 that is a scam. If you have a company you have dealt with and want to be in a co-op please feel free to contact us. We want the co-op to benefit everyone.
Do we guarantee results? No. please understand that we are using other companies to do the actual advertising. Most reputable companies do not guarantee results since so much is out of their control. So things like sales cannot be guaranteed. If the ad campaign says guaranteed 10,000 impressions, clicks or leads, then we will hold them to that.
We would like to start this service as soon as we have enough interest so leave a reply below and let’s get started working together for the benefit of all in the co-op. Please also list any ad packages that you have seen online and would like us to co-op together on.
There is so much information out there that getting the right pieces to fit together and make your business grow is not easy. The truth is the best training in your MLM career will be by the most successful person in your up line, that is, the most successful person who is also a good trainer. Even if your direct sponsor is not the best trainer you should look to those in your up line who can help.
Unfortunately most people who are in a network Marketing company or MLM did not chose their sponsor and even if he/she had the best intentions, your sponsor may not be the best trainer for you. If you can find a great trainer in your up line ask for step by step guidance. There is also a tremendous amount of generic training available from other sources. When I say generic training I am referring to top income earners who have a proven system that works no matter what the company or opportunity is. There are a lot of the same basic steps that the highest income earners use such as building a lead list and building funded proposals.
Fact is, most of the leaders in MLM use similar approaches to success. They market to and continually build an email lead list AND they market other tools and services to their list so that even those that will not join their primary company still spend money with them.
Your ultimate goal of course would be to have people seek you out and ask to join your team. This will happen as you establish yourself as an expert and provide solutions and tools for your visitors. Whether you find it from your sponsor or outside experts, get involved in some great training and stay motivated.
I really enjoyed the Master Sponsoring training listed below. Take a peek at it and see if you like it.
So you have seen the importance of a great Blog and how it can generate buzz but how do you make money with your Blog?
Your Blog has to to be generating traffic first so lets cover some strategies to get more traffic to your Blog and then what to do with the traffic comes next.
You can generate traffic in two main ways. There are some others that can help but most fall under two categories.
1. You can advertise your Blog. This way works well and you can use pay per click or par per impression ads on Google or in many other places online. You goal is to attract regular readers that are interested in your main theme so if your blog is about home business then you will need ads that attract people that want to start a home business. This can be done in Google but also can be done in a variety of E zines and even with ads on Home Business websites that get a lot of traffic.
If you have the budget this would be the fastest way to get traffic however you can sink a lot of money into online advertising with little or no return so make sure you can track the ads you run and always work on building your list of leads by having your visitors sign up for a newsletter or give them a free report or something of value to get them to join your mailing list. It is vital that you build your list. VITAL! No matter how you get people to your Blog your goal should bet that even if they do not join your opportunity or buy from you today that you can send them a promotion later. Having a good auto responder will send them messages automatically for you so you do not have to do everything manually. I use Aweber.
2. You can Build Links and your ranking in Google. This technique will build long term traffic that is free. Now I say free in the fact that you are not paying for clicks or impressions but it will take work and dedication. You can see the tools I use on a daily basis to build links and capture leads on my Marketing Tools page.
This is the path I have chosen. I do some ads as I can afford to and test as I go but building long term traffic by using great content and then having that content re-purposed around the web and linking back to your site is invaluable. I also build links from other social sites as well as any site related to my theme which is marketing online geared toward MLM.
You can build links also by posting replies to other blog posts that are related to your field. Be careful to post relevant replies and add value. Do not just post “hey great post”. This will hurt your reputation. Why would you worry about your reputation online? Because wouldn’t it be nice to have a large group of people that respect your opinions and advice enough that when you suggest a product or service to them they rush to buy it? Build your list and build a relationship with those on your list.
If you have a new site like this one you can boost your credibility and authority by writing some articles for site that already have great rankings like EzineArticles.com. Here is an example: If you search on Google for “MLM Insider Secrets” you will see an article I wrote for ezinearticles. It is listed as MLM Insider Secrets – Working to Get Out of Debt I wrote this article as a total newbie and it is on page one because I posted it on ezinearticles.com, they helped me rank and it is free to submit articles to them. Be sure that you write original content for them, they will reject spun content.
OK So now you are building traffic and how do you make money?
The best advice I can give is to put your readers first. What are they looking for? Help them find what they need and even if they do not join your primary opportunity you can have them pay you. This is called a funded proposal. You see I am looking for people to join my primary Network Marketing company but I also realize that most people that I reach will not join. Some will but most will not. So how do I make money?
One thing that all Network Marketer need is leads so I offer some solutions to help them get leads for their current business. At some point in the future they may decide to join my opportunity which is Empower Network but even if they never do, I can help them find what they need and earn a commission on it as well. I offer MLSP because it is a great leads system and they can try it out for just $2. Getting the point here? Do not try to force your deal on people, instead help them get what they need and they may just want to join you at some point.
Another great tool to help you make money from your Blog is to take the training below from the industry leader in free traffic to your Blog, Rob Fore. Take a video peek below.
What is a Blog exactly?
You are reading one right now! A Blog is basically an online diary. It can be about any subject and Blog entries are usually arranged with the most recent entry (or Post) listed first. Typically they are centered around a general topic but there are no hard and fast rules. Blog posts can be all from one single author or from many depending how the owner of the Blog has it set up. Blogs also typically have room at the end of each post to allow those that read the posts to comment about them.
What is a Blog good for?
A blog can be used for anything from just pronouncing your ideas and opinions to the world, to informing readers about the latest news stories to just about anything on any topic. If more than two people are interested in a subject there is probably a Blog about that subject. The great thing about Blogs is that they are easy to use and update and usually are updated very often so readers are attracted to them more since they get fresh content.
What is a Blog used for in business?
Well since people as well as Google love fresh updated content, Blogs can be used to promote just about any business. But they work best if the promotion is not blatant advertising. The reason is that most people who search the web want one thing, information. Even if you plan to buy something you will probably want more information before you make a decision so if a business Blog offers helpful information about products and services and even lists the pros and cons of a product then the Blog builds trust and the advice is more generally followed. Better to inform on a Blog than to try to sell. People turn their attention elsewhere when they are being sold but they pay attention when they are being informed.
What is a Blog Alexa Rank?
You may have heard of a Blog Alexa rank. This is the ranking that the most prestigious authority on traffic and web importance gives a website. The lower the number rank the better the ranking. Alexa.com ranks sites by many factors but traffic and relevance are the key elements. When a site has a good Alexa rank the site is worth more if sold and has the respect of the online community.
What is a Blog’s Value?
The more traffic and better Alexa rank a Blog has the more value it would have if being sold but the real value of a Blog is based on its readers. If a Blog is helping its readers then it is a valuable blog.
Should you have a Blog?
Yes and No! Yes if you enjoy writing and think others would be interested in your thoughts and articles, but no if you do not update it often. Blog readers expect new and fresh informative content. The subject can be anything that interests you and others as long as you keep adding new content.
You can also make money by owning a Blog either by running ads or promoting affiliate offers and networking with others. I own this one as well as an Empower Network Blog that pays me commissions on other peoples Blogs.
Good Luck and Great Blogging !Chris Paulus
