Having been an internet marketer since 2011, I know where the money is at. Also, as an introvert, I know how to automate my online businesses and be really efficient with my time. Here’s how I created a 5 hour work week all online with an automated MLM business.
In 2011, I created a digital music album and wanted to sell it around the world while I slept, because I was intrigued with how musicians got royalty checks years after their albums were released.
I uploaded 8 songs to a music platform called Tunecore and awaited sales. Well, I sold maybe 3 MP3’s in Japan but it was enough to get me excited about making money online.
In 2012, I uploaded my first ebook I wrote onto Amazon at a time when everyone was getting in on the ebook boom. It did pretty well, but not enough to live on. Again, my belief that I could make money online was getting stronger.
In 2013, I promoted other people’s digital products as an affiliate marketer. I made $2,000 that Summer. Now, I was hooked.
Then, in 2014, I discovered MLM. It was like affiliate marketing, but better. I got paid over and over whenever someone re-ordered product. This beat affiliate marketing which was usually just one-time orders.
Now, Here’s How I Automated Everything
I was a big introvert, and I knew MLM was an extroverted profession. I had promoted my ebook and music using Twitter, and used an app to automate a direct message to all my new followers. Everyone does this today, but back then people actually responded to my direct message and clicked on whatever I promoted.
I realized the more I followed people, the more they followed back which would get more views to my direct message. I followed over 1,000 people a day and had several Twitter accounts.
Today, the principle is the same: to get massive eyeballs on your links. I literally work one hour a day.
Here’s My One Hour a Day Schedule:
One – Shoot a video
YouTube videos are powerful and can generate you consistent leads for years to come. It only takes 10 to 20 minutes to do a video and upload it onto YouTube. Every video I do has my link beneath the video so people can go to my blog and read about my business.
Two – Blogging
Blogging is definitely a long-term strategy and will take hundreds of articles and years to generate enough traffic, but once you have a high-authority blog, you can generate leads forever. I used to write my own articles, but these days people pay me to publish their content. I just copy and paste what they send me and it builds my blog up. (not this blog, I still only write for this one because I love you guys!)
Three – Run Ads
Now, to really get your MLM going you need to buy advertising. This is a real business and it takes money to make money. Most small businesses and professional Entrepreneurs reinvest 70% of their profit back into their business and start their business with an influx of capital.
Now, if you are a star on social media and have lots of friends and supportive family, you could probably skip running ads, but most people don’t or don’t want to bug their friends.
Video: 20 minutes
Blog article: 30 minutes
Running ads: 10 minutes
How Does an Automated MLM Business Work?
The first MLM I ever joined had a built-in sales funnel for their distributors. What that means is that I just shared my website or landing page they gave me to capture prospect’s info, and when someone signed up on my landing page the company sent them a series of emails on my behalf.
So, I generated the lead and the company did the rest basically.
I didn’t call my leads or email them. The series of emails from the company was enough to close them.
So, that’s how I automate my MLM. There’s only a couple companies that offer this type of autoresponder for their reps. I am still in a company that uses an autoresponder today.
Learn How to Generate Leads
All you need to do to grow a big online network marketing business is to learn how to generate leads and let the company do the rest. We are looking at 20 to 100 leads a day, never stop generating leads. The easiest way to get leads is to join my business so I can show you my easy copy and paste advertising technique.
Now, remember, it takes money to make money, but don’t worry, you can eventually write off your advertising expenses as a home business Entrepreneur.
