PostSubject: Social Networking part Two   Thu Sep 27, 2007 11:12 pm

The Internet has changed dramatically in the last 10 years, especially in the last 5 years the way marketers market. We have seen the changes go by from email marketing to viral marketing to traffic exchanges and now finally Social Networking.

Network Marketing was started years ago for a reason:

It was meant to bring multitudes of members together to get the word around about the companies products or services and they used the members to do that through word of mouth.

This was also done through meetings io the living rooms or many, meetings at the local diner or coffee shop and finally through large gatherings in conference centers etc

Everyone would gather and introduce their guests, sit through an hour and a half of presentations, product announcements and testimonials to finally end with coffee and donuts where you would introduce your guest to top performers in the industry or even the president of the company.

Once all that was done, the majority of the guests would then signup into the program and the build began.

Gee, sound familiar, it is Social Networking!

Then the Internet came

Companies in their wisdom said "You no longer have to go to meetings, just pay your entrance fee and we'll give you a website. Then everyone around the world will come and join you".

This is why "OLD SCHOOL" Network marketing is coming back, it's not new but they call it "SOCIAL NETWORKING".

Why is it so popular?

it puts the "Trust" back in business.

People now will take the time to look at opportunities as long as they can talk to ownership, upline and downline members.

members feel a lot more comfortable when they have someone real to talk to and can get support when they need it.

All the tools have been at the fingertips of marketers for the last 5 years but they just never bothered to use them effectively.

Tools like:

VoIP for phone communication and online conference rooms for gatherings of members.

Blogs came out a few years ago and those were not used effectively but now Social Networks have come along.

Let's look at what we have to work with:

online communities
online forums
online blogs
Now all of these are now put together in one place, a Social Network.

So what we do now is join these Social Networks and put in all our details such as:

Your Profile which consists of your Name, email, description of who you are and what you do
Your own Blog
Your own forum
This is a best way to develop relationships and business contacts. Now for something explosive.

Network Marketing has done a full circle back to
it's what it was intended to be.

Meeting people, building trust and creating
long lasting friendships and wealth together.

It sounds like Team Builder!!
