If you have been in network marketing for a while but haven’t seen the results that you want or aren’t able to live the lifestyle you want, then you may be working harder vs smarter. In this article, I am going to talk with you about learning how to build your network marketing business the hybrid way.
Online Marketing Meets Offline Marketing
There seems to be a debate going on these days between the old-school marketers and the young guns of networking. One believes that you have to do everything offline, get “belly to belly” and look people in the eye. The other believes that you don’t need to market offline and you simply need to do marketing on the internet.
Instead of trashing all of the things that have worked in the past, there is a way to bring online and offline marketing together. This is the most effective way to build a team that isn’t only large but is also strong with a great sense of community. As humans, we all crave a sense of togetherness and belonging and when you can create that with your team while still using the reach of the internet, you are going to experience something very powerful.
What Hybrid Marketing Looks Like
If you want to market with both methods, it may look something like this:
- Generate Lead Online
- Lead Goes Through Sales Funnel
- You Speak to the Lead Live on the Phone
- Meet the Lead In Person (If Local)
As you can see, the internet did the work of the sifting and sorting. You were simply there for either the close or the confirmation. This will allow you to use your time effectively, build a big team and is good for duplication.
Alpha Networker 2.0 was developed by Mile Dillard and Tim Erwary’s parent company in Magnetic Sponsoring. The original Magnetic Sponsoring eBook guide is on offline and online marketing training platform, and became popular among several network marketers. The famous Alpha networker 2.0 is the fruit of one of the new marketers to the team, Ryan Angelo. This network marketing guide is a boon for those men or women who are struggling hard to establish themselves in their network marketing business! The guide is based on the concept of attraction marketing. It has given birth to a completely new generation of successful internet network marketers.
Mike Dillard had invited Ryan Angelo as his partner to release Alpha networker 2.0. They both have done remarkable jobs on the valuable video training sessions. Like, the previously launched e-books of this company, this guide offers couple of videos that will help you in becoming an “Alpha” that is, leader.
Basically, the guide suggests that there are 3 groups of network marketers. They can be classified as: The Alphas- People who are born leaders, full of positive spirit, determined to win, successful and hard workers; Pre-Alphas- People who are willing to succeed in life, they are hard workers who are looking ahead for opportunities; and the Betas- People who don’t work, just wait for miracles to happen, they blame others for their faults! Thus, Alpha networker 2.0 helps you in becoming an Alpha.
Alpha networker 2.0 suggests that you can definitely generate leads with your experience. If you are willing to sacrifice your time, you can master the right techniques of business. Moreover, you need to be confident and attractive, communicative with leadership qualities in you. This will help you in becoming successful in the long run.
Alpha networker 2.0 comprises of various guidelines in the form on videos and audios that will help you in grasping the concepts.
Can Network Marketing be done solely offline? Well, yes and no. Most Network Marketing companies have online systems or membership areas where you must login to run your business. To enroll people, check commissions, check your downline etc.
That’s all done online but that’s not what I want to talk about. I want to talk about building a business offline. A better question would be, can you build a multimillion dollar team using offline marketing only.
The honest truth is yes. The biggest teams in Network Marketing have all been built through offline marketing. It’s only the new companies which try teach their reps how to sponsor and generate leads online. Online marketing is not easy and not everyone can do it. That’s why you would be crazy to only teach your reps online marketing. But at the same time you can’t teach them only offline marketing. You need to mix them both up.
Online marketing is fun, but you can’t exactly grow a billion dollar team with only online marketing. Some people spend months to years before they see any results online, it’s just not fast enough. At the end of the day, what gets results is putting your opportunity or presentation in front of people. There is no easier way to do that than talking to people on the street, handing out CDs, DVDs and more.
So if your looking to grow a big team offline, think about using some online marketing too. There is a lot of money online and why not leverage the Internet to your advantage? Needless to say, you can grow a fast richer team with offline marketing. As long as you have a good recruiting, training and tools system in place, you’re set to be a millionaire. It just takes hard work, dedication, and some time.
