Internet Marketing Teamwork

Today I want to share some thoughts about teamwork. I have learned so much about internet marketing from a few experienced and successful internet marketing leaders.

I have never worked closely with him, though he is one of the Internet Marketers I listen closely to. That is the common situation for the people in Network Marketing; we may never get the opportunity to work closely with the big leaders (or gurus if you like).

If we choose to join them directly we will still never may work directly with them. We have to buy their products or watch their videos and read what they publish online. That is the only way you can learn from them. I understand why this is so. No one would ever manage to work closely with thousands of people.

Therefore, when you choose a business don’t believe a top marketer will help you one to one, even if you join directly below him.

It’s only his or her products that can help you. Find other people to work close to and who also like to learn from the same leaders/coachers. Then build strong teams with the people you work close with. I believe in teamwork, sharing ideas and tips with each other. We are usually not good at everything, so share the work you have to do with each other.

Here is an example on how you can do it. If you have a team of 6 people and 2 are good in writing articles, they can write articles for the other 4 too. Just change them so everyone post different articles. Then you post them in different article directories if you don’t have an automatic program for sending them out.

Moreover, if 2 people in the team are very good in video marketing, they can help the others by showing them different methods for video marketing and how to use the tools.

Discuss what can be better and what is good so everybody can learn. Be honest to one another and tell your team mates what they are good and not so good at, so that they can develop their skills. Sometimes there might be a method that does not work well for one person, but very good for another.

If one person is good in writing ads and maybe e-mail letters for the auto responder, he can do that for the whole group. You will not have the same leads and prospects in your auto responders so you can have the same e-mails.

If you use a system like I do where I have e-mails from the company, you can use them, but in addition to that have one to two broadcasts a week where you share some special things with your leads and prospects. Maybe there are only a few people on the team who like to write e-mails and ads, then share them with each other.

If one person on the team has good technical and computer skills, this person should share this with the other members. If he/she is not good in article writing he/she gets help from someone on the team with that.

If some of the team members live in another part of the world with another language, that can be a strength for those who only speak English. If an Indian talks with an Indian he might trust and understand him better than an American.

Choose a few methods you feel is interesting and fun. Then the results will be so much better than what you’ll get if you criticize yourselves on something that is not properly done. You should however try out things. You never know what you are good at before you try it out. However, if it is something you really don’t like, find another way to work. Get help from your team. You help them and they help you with the methods you are not good at.

If you have a team with people who like teamwork and are willing to share their work and help each other, you get a strength that no one gets if they choose to work alone. They have to do everything themselves. If you are in a team with people helping each other, you will probably work half the normal time and it’s much more fun to share your success with others.

If you don’t have that team yet, join a team in one of the Internet Training and coaching systems. There you will learn how to start and get different marketing methods to choose from so you can start getting leads and prospects and people who want to join you. This way you will get a feeling of working with people, sometimes you will find people you can develop a close relationship with and can work with even if you are not on the same team or in the same company.

Internet Marketing and True Leadership

A true leader, what does it mean? I’m on a number of e-mail lists, I bet you are too and a lot of them end with:
“Thank you for your leadership”. So I going to give you my thought on the subject. In the “good old” days, most “leaders” where born to their social status. 200 years ago there where small chances that your life would be any better than your parents. Unlike today, we can access all the information we desire with a click of a mouse. Today we even have millions of examples of people that comes from the lowest social status and become extremely successful.If you took a farmer from 19th century and moved him to our time he would probably die just by the enormous information he was exposed to. But if he should survive, he would go bananas and say: “This is my chance to get me and my family out of poverty”, and he would take MASSIVE ACTION. When the farmer does that he is doing what most people don’t do, LEAD them selves. We want to follow, not lead in most cases. But this is the first and the most important quality of a True Leader, be able to lead them selves. I don’t care if you are CEO of GM, or the paperboy, it all comes down to this. If there is a gap between where you are in your life, and where you want to be, you need to lead your selves to close the gap. And when you do so, you can become an even grater leader, you can lead other to do the same.There are leaders in all classes of society. If you are a mum or a dad, you are an important leader. If you are teacher likewise, if you have a physicals challenge like overweight, you need to lead your selves to take new and some times difficult actions. You can model someone or get a buddy, but you need to do the “Job”.To manage people, is a kind of leadership, but it’s not a lasting one. People will only do what ever necessary as long as you are present at some form (old school leadership). The great majority of leaders are in this category, this is not a criticism, but a state of fact to get YOU to the next level of leadership. Think of an area you would like to improve, it do not have to be anything big, and take one small action right no to improve it NOW.In the Internet marketing Industry, there are millions of people seeking for an opportunity. According to Forbes Magazine, 79,000,000 (million) Americans are planing to start their own business within the next three years. And most of them will do it through Internet marketing, direct sales or network marketing. So the marked is HUGE, but if you want to HAVE long term success you need to show your selves as a leader in several areas. In these days Donald Trump Network is about to launch (I’m not a part of it), and i recognize that it’s not a bad name to associate with your business, but even if Jesus Christ Him selves should appear with a business model, you would still have to show great leadership to have success. It’s just the way we are made (or He made us if you like).It will not be a walk in the park, if you want to be BIG in this industry. So what kind of leader are you? Are you just the manager that tells other what to do, or are you the leader that inspires people to take out their best?If you are a true leader, you get people to break through even when you’re not there because you have the ability influence them long term. You are influencing them because you know what already influences them. Even more, you are able to get the person to tap in to their own resources and lead them selves. A true leader are able to change peoples feelings, emotions and actions long term. And if you are a GREAT leader, you lead people to the better for you, them and the GREATER good to make this world a little better than it was yesterday..”No one is born as a leader, but everyone can become one” THTom Hammerborg

Working Towards Affiliate Marketing

Affiliate Marketing today has gained lot of significance in internet marketing. Due to the advancement in the online sales and marketing you will not escape the many advertisements that is been posted on the different websites when you open any web pages.

Affiliate marketing is a kind of marketing wherein there is a manufacturer, a publisher and a customer. The affiliate or the publisher as he is called will direct the potential customers to the manufacturer and in return the manufacturer will pay commission to the affiliate.

In the set up of affiliate marketing the manufacturer is the company or the person who supplies the product or the services. It can be in the form of hard products or soft products, and can also be services delivery system.

This will be collected or listed by the affiliate in his website. An affiliate is the person who has a website of his own and opens up his pages to customers out there. In his pages there are different types of products and services listed for the customers to see when they visit his page. It is like an advertised section. When any person visits his page he will be directed to the manufacturer for his purchases.

In other words the affiliate guides the customer towards the manufacturer or the product’s company. And in turn the company will pay him for every customer he directs towards the company. The customers visiting the affiliate website are as usual those who want to inquire on a product and are on the look out for some information.

All the people involved in affiliate marketing are benefited from this system. The manufacturer gets to sell his products by getting customers incessantly, the affiliate earns commission on directing the potential customers and the customers are guided to the sites where they will get guanine and good products.

In this system we cannot call the affiliate as being employed by the manufacturer company. The affiliate works for himself and is not committed to the company. He just directs the customers and earns commission according to his frequency of references.

He is being paid by the company according to the number of visits made by the customers through his link or based on the number of sales made through the customers directed by him. In order to be a good affiliate you will need to have your own website. The website will list out all the products and the address from where it can be found. It helps to have an attractive website which will appeal to the people visiting your site. Thus your site will always be flooded with traffic and eventually raise your commissions.
