There is a whole new generation who for some reason has not heard of Network Marketing or MLM. This is probably a good thing on the one hand, due to my generations experience of pyramid schemes and pushy network marketers inviting us to dinner to ambush us with an Amway presentation. Sorry Amway. The hypothesis is that using Social Media you can grow your network in a positive way by becoming a trust agent and then inviting them to join your network in a non-threatening, non-pushy way. Promising a minimal result based on a certain set of instructions based on a Social Media Strategy. If you work harder you can get a better result and so on.
Did you know that (and I apologize I don’t know where the data came from but a couple of people have confirmed it, and I’m sure that I could look it up but I am tired and yes trying to get this out before bed) if the people who lost their homes had an additional $500 to $1000 a month they would have saved their homes from foreclosure.
I have seen what network marketing can do and a guru in network marketing who has created 7 millionaires in his organization is partnering on this project with me.
So in short we are taking a small group of individuals from different network marketing groups and giving them a social media strategy and then we will tell the world what we found out.
If you are a network marketer and would like to join this group please leave a comment and an email and phone number for us to contact you. The deadline for entry into this focus group is Friday, July 9, 2010.
Next blog we will discuss the so-called Social Media Bubble. Fact or Fiction?
