Network Marketing Leads - MLM Leads - Lead Generation As a network marketer, many of us were brought into a company because we were somehow attracted to our sponsor, to the company, to the product, or a combination of these things. We were often provided with a replicated website and company specific training calls. Most of the training offered by various companies is similar. We are taught to approach our "warm market" which consists of family and friends. Thankfully, this is becoming outdated. We are left with several issues to overcome, if we are to become successful. The internet has opened up a whole new era in network marketing. We are no longer limited to our "warm market" as a lead source. The internet has given us an amazing tool to generate an unlimited supply of business leads. Network marketers who purchase their own domain name and build their own website tend to have far better success than those who simply attempt to promote their company site. The reason is simple; search engines, for the most part, ignore replicated sites. You have no control over the meta and title tags, and most often there aren't any. There are some good products out there for the network marketer with limited technical abilities, and good training for those who wish to learn. The network marketer who makes it his business to learn the craft of internet marketing has the greatest chance of real success. The bottom line in internet marketing is lead generation. That is what every internet marketer is attempting to do - generate leads, thereby generating sales and recruiting new business partners. We have all heard the statistic that 95% of the people attempting to market online is failing. If one were to uncover statistics for success in life period, the same stat would hold true.
