Online Network Marketing Business Ideas

Network marketing has been taken to new heights in recent years with thousands of network marketers flocking to the Internet to build their businesses, instead of sticking to the old school “marketing strategies” such as the 3 feet rule, making a list of friends and family etc, etc. And it makes perfect sense as to why. The Internet is the perfect place to display your business opportunity and the perfect place for people already searching for a network marketing opportunity to find it.

We all know that the Internet is loaded with information, so it is the first place people go to research a business opportunity. If they happen to find any of your material and you give them the information that they are looking for, you have quite a good chance that those people will be, not only interested in joining with your company but joining up with YOU specifically. Especially if you have some value to offer.

So if you’re interested in taking your business online but have know idea where to start, I have compiled a list of 7 Online Network Marketing Business Ideas that you can use to get to the fastest start possible.

Online Network Marketing Business Idea # 1- Article Writing: The site that you are looking at right now, EzineArticles, is an excellent site to start off with. EzineArticles is great. It’s quick and easy (and free) to sign up and then you can get to work writing articles about your business. You can write a review about your company, explain your compensation plan, write about your products, anything you like. And Google absolutely loves EzineArticles, so you could even get your article ranked in the search engines where thousands of people can find it. You can leave the URL to your web site at the bottom of your article so if people like what you have written and want to find out more, they can go straight to your site. Of course there are other article sites out there but to me, EzineArticles is by far the best.

Online Network Marketing Business Idea # 2 – Squidoo: Similar to article writing, Squidoo lets you write a page (or lens as they call it) about what ever you like. Squidoo lenses, too, get highly ranked in search engines, which makes it a whole lot easier for people to find. If you want to know more about Squidoo, head over to Squidoo.com to check it out.

Online Network Marketing Business Idea # 3 – Social Networking: If you don’t already know (I’m sure you do), social networking sites are the “in thing” right now. Sites like MySpace, Twitter and especially Facebook have hundreds of thousands, even millions of people logging in each and everyday. I just saw on the news a couple of weeks ago that Facebook now has over 400,000,000 users. FOUR HUNDRED MILLION! That’s insane. Do you think that a nice little chunk of those people are looking for a home based business/network marketing opportunity? I certainly do! It’s a great place to let people know about your business opportunity and connect with other network marketers that you might be able to learn a thing or two from. If you don’t already have one, create a Facebook/Twitter/MySpace account TODAY and start meeting new people you can talk to about your business.

Online Network Marketing Business Idea # 4 – YouTube: Just like the social networking sites, YouTube was millions of people logging in every single day. While some people are only there to watch silly videos and what-not, there are also people searching for information. And video is a great way to let people know about your business opportunity and about you. You can speak from the heart about how you feel about your company, and if people are drawn to you because they like you or what you’re about, in many cases they will be interested in calling you to find out more information. So how do they contact you? Easy, just leave your web site URL (if you have one) and/or phone number in the description box. I think that video is the best way to project your passion about how you feel about your business opportunity and when people see that, they will want to join YOU.

Online Network Marketing Business Idea # 5 – Forums: Forums are a great place for network marketers to hang out on the Internet. You can reach out to many people and many people can reach out to you. Network marketing forums are, naturally, populated with other network marketers, often more experienced then you which makes it a great place to form new relationships and learn from other people about what they are doing to grow their businesses. Two forums I would recommend you check out are RichDad.com and WarriorForum.com but there are dozens more to take a look at. Just Google “network marketing forums” and you will find plenty.

Online Network Marketing Business Idea # 6 – PPC: Okay, if you don’t know what PPC means, it stands for Pay-Per-Click. Pay per click ads are the little adverts that you see on the right side of your screen when ever you search for something in Google (Yahoo and MSN also have PPC ads). You can create PPC ads for your business or products and as the name implies, you pay Google (or Yahoo or MSN) a certain amount of money (from a couple of cents to a couple of dollars depending on your keywords) every time someone clicks on your ad/s. PPC is the perfect form of advertising because your ad only gets shown to people that are interested in or looking at your business/products. Lets say you made an ad targeting Amway, and you choose Amway as your Keyword. Your ad will only ever show up when someone searches for Amway. It is truly targeted advertising and it’s brilliant but it does take a little mastering so that you don’t blow your advertising budget.

Online Network Marketing Business Idea # 7 – Be Consistent: The marketing strategies above are all incredible ways of marketing your business opportunity… but the key is being consistent. It’s not enough to do a little here and a little there. You have to be working hard every single day and as we all know, the amount of effort you put in is the amount that you get back. Just try one or even a few of these strategies and see what they can do for your business.
