Video, Internet, and Network Marketing

Internet marketing and network marketing have blurred lines these days as the two pretty much exist in tandem. Internet marketing covers a lot of types of selling, whether it is directly from a website, via social media, blogs, forums, or Squidoo lenses. Network marketing is the means of not only selling, but recruiting others to sell for you, and this can be achieved by using any of the methods above also. Through the internet we can expose our businesses and products to millions of people. Gone are the days of hassling friends and relatives to join our network or purchase our product!

Video, Internet and Network Marketing

The most popular platform in both “internet and network marketing” is video and a trip around YouTube will show you just how many people are promoting their products, and many of them are making thousands of dollars monthly just by using YouTube. There is not one successful network or internet marketing guru that doesn’t use video these days. You may not like what these gurus are selling, but learn from them and watch how they use video especially to promote their products.

They send them in emails, they send them through blogs, they are used in promotions and on their websites. People love videos too, we all like to do two things at once these days, and while we are listening or watching a video we can actually do something else, because it’s easy. We also recognize the same faces and if we like what we hear and the face we are looking at, then we have fallen for attraction marketing – which is one of the most powerful ways to fuse the internet and network marketing together for out of this world, profitable results.

Lights! Action!

Scared to death of a camera? It probably ranks right behind public speaking on the fear factor scam. But if you are going to be successful combining the internet and network marketing you will just have to get over it! Terrified of the technicalities? There’s no need to be if you have a camera and a microphone and the right software there are many excellent companies on the internet that can help you produce good videos. The equipment is ridiculously cheap these days, so that’s no excuse. Get tongue-tied? Rehearse and write a script. I’m sorry if you hate the way you look, there’s not much that can be done.

If your first couple of videos are shaky, even funny, post them anyway, this is all part of attraction marketing and if people see you are just like them, they will warm to you. It won’t take long before you are making perfect little videos every day, but please keep them short. Everyone’s in a hurry these days don’t take an hour to say what could be said in 5 minutes or you’ll bore people to death.

You are broadcasting to potentially millions but being watched by one at a time. Remember that and treat that person (everyone) like they are your friend, smile and be positive and learn to use positive language too, like using the word “will” instead of “could”. Using video as a selling tool is only a tiny part of internet and network marketing because you have to learn how to get your new video to rank on the search engines in order to create traffic, leads and sales.
