Awhile back a network marketer was sending out messages via Twitter asking questions with apparently no response. Some of the questions where related to web software?
Apparently, after awhile of getting no replies he became frustrated and asked the question “Is anybody listening?”
Truth is very few are, we would like to kid ourselves into thinking they are. With the technology we have today anyone can broadcast on the internet, with the thought that they are reaching their target market.
How often have you been frustrated when working network marketing leads when you discovered that other people where calling them? It is not uncommon with todays glut of information to request information from more than one source.
While you might have been competing anywhere from three to thirty other network marketers for the prospects attention, now you are competing with tens of thousands.
Are your broadcast message, your social marketing pages in reality just getting lost and mixed in with the rest of the clutter. I’ve read many great books on marketing, hopefully, you know what a niche market is?
In network marketing finding success, often means doing what others will not do. It means not following the crowd, becoming your own master, discovering those niches where your message and voice can be heard.
I’ve found it almost hilarious watching network marketers adapting Twitter to their opportunity pitches. Maybe two percent even comes close to using it for what it was designed for, building friendships, and communicating!
Repeating your message or series of messages about your business opportunity over the course of the day only furthers the reaction and credibility that anyone listening to you will perceive.
After awhile people just stop listening to you, so when you do have something worthwhile, you’ve already killed your audience. Then there is naivety in believing that other network marketers are interested in you business opportunity.
When you broadcast to others in the same field but different companies it’s almost like Ford trying to sell cars to GM employees. No doubt you’ve been taught to do this, stand at the internet mall and just keep shouting your message!
Again, you back to sending your message out to individuals that really could careless about your business. It’s almost funny in network marketing when you go to another marketers blog and comment. Unless your a member of their team your message never gets published or they remove your name and link to your site.
If you want anyone to listen to your message maybe it’s time you stopped following the crowds, find your niche and talk to people who actually want to hear from you! It’s almost funny today with nobody calling leads there is a void there that many will capitalize on!
The question is will you keep shouting into the void or take the necessary action, to build your business today?
