Promoting your MLM with Free Reports and Articles
Admittedly some of it is deserved.
However, your MLM endeavors need to find a way to make people see that it's above board and financially beneficial to them.
Use written reports and articles that can help them see what you do, how you do it and what's in it for you.
Topics As with any other type of business, you will want to make your topics relevant to the business at hand.
Otherwise, the point of writing them is non existent.
Provide a service for those who you are trying to draw in.
The something for nothing applies here very well.
Offer them information or your own experiences about how to gather new leads or how to cold call, and you will find people interested in your methods and willing to come back to read them again or visiting your site in anticipation of the next report or article.
Offer Links to pertinent Materials Offering further information in the guise of links to items they may find relevant or interesting will gather you more users.
If the links come from your site, be certain that they open in a new window to keep them viewing your materials as well as the newly opened window.
Losing your visitors to another site that you've linked to isn't an option that you want to entertain.
When you offer your content, gather email addresses.
Requesting an email address from the users is a small price to pay for an informational-rich report or newsletter that gives them a lot of content about the very thing they are interested in building.
However, selling those email addresses that you've gathered is the most certain way for the word to spread that if they sign up for your newsletter they will gather an inbox full of irrelevant email.
Provide assurances that their email remains on the site with you and doesn't go to any other site.
Using your reports to promote yourself as an expert in your field When your users are accustomed to reading well-researched reports and great materials from your site, they will be tempted to come back time and time again.
If that material is also pertinent to what they are trying to accomplish such as learning how to better make cold calls or how to recruit more effectively, they will come back to read all that you have to say.
This implies that you should use well-written articles and research your materials so that you do know exactly what you're talking about prior to providing the material for download.
Check your facts, your statistics and make sure that what you write is exactly correct.
Nothing will turn off a site user faster than to read what he/she thinks to be correct information only to find that what you've offered isn't what they need, or worse yet, isn't remotely correct.
If you give statistics, make sure they are absolutely correct and provide the places where you found them so they can double check themselves.
Provide your reports on a regular basis such as once a month, once a week, or every two weeks, so that people grow into a habit of coming to visit the site and seeing what you have to offer on a regular basis.
Earn their trust by offering pertinent, timely content designed to do exactly what they need done.
Offer some means of interaction so that if there is a question about your report or article, there is a way for you to take those questions and answer them for your website users.
Interaction sells both you and your web site.
Providing something for nothing, issuing a report that doesn't ask for a return investment on their part is a means to gather information for your website use and to help yourself to be established firmly in your peers' mind as an expert in the field of MLM marketing.
Offering this service on a regular basis will afford you extra traffic to your web site and a good name in the field you are a part of.
Using your knowledge to provide a means for your associates in MLM marketing to gather some knowledge of their own will provide great rewards aside from the traffic and the visits to your web site on a regular basis.
A free report generates more than leads.
It generates goodwill in the sales community.
