Maybe my story will sound familiar. I resisted setting up an MLM lead generation system for a long time. I was having pretty good results building my network marketing business the traditional way: talking to friends and family, doing a bit of Internet marketing here and there.
Of course, I saw plenty of people using these systems online and I wasn’t interested at first. I thought there would be a conflict between running a system to generate leads and my primary MLM. As if I would have to put my network marketing on hold and promote something completely different. That bugged me.
Plus, I thought I could figure it all out on my own. Why should I have someone else teach me things I already knew?
I Saw Something That Made Me Change My Mind
Then I noticed something that made me think again. I had purchased an online marketing course for network marketers (Mike Dillard’s Traffic Formula 2.0) and saw online marketers I respected talk about the benefits of having an online MLM lead generation system.
I realized that not only would it be smart to have a system to generate MLM leads but it would be even smarter to not build this system completely from scratch. I wanted the same results I saw these leaders getting now, not a year from now. That’s when I started looking into ready-made MLM lead systems.
Three Things You Should Know About Your MLM Lead Generation System
In case you are like I was and you’re resisting going with an automated system for generating MLM leads, please consider the following things you might not know.
1. Create More Leads Than You’d Believe. You probably wouldn’t believe me if I told you how many real-time, targeted leads your MLM lead generation system can create for you automatically. For instance, once you get your system set up it’s not unreasonable to expect 50-100 leads per week. There are some leaders, though, who use their lead generation system to create 50-100 leads per DAY. How would that change your business?
2. Generate Additional Income Streams. You may be 100% devoted to your network marketing company and that’s perfectly understandable. But if you had a list of 1000 prospects, maybe only 50 or less might be interested in your business. What if you could offer a variety of tools and trainings that the other 950 prospects would be interested in? That’s what a well-designed MLM lead generation system does. And the sales of these other tools can be quite lucrative, more than offsetting ALL of your marketing costs.
3. Makes Network Marketing Fun Again. At some point, it happens to the best of us: we run out of people to share our network marketing business with. Then we have to do things that aren’t so fun: for instance, buying pricey leads, talking to lots of strangers on the phone and getting hung up on. With an online lead generation system people are coming to YOU. You’re the hunted, not the hunter-and trust me, business is a LOT more fun this way. It’s true attraction marketing online.
There are tons of other benefits MLM lead generation systems offer that I might talk about in another article. For now, just know that the longer you put off setting up your automated lead system the longer you’ll be waking up without new, exclusive leads in your inbox like so many successful network marketers.
