Its 31st today and 2010 will soon be history for you and me.
If you look back, time really flies and boy they do flies fast. It seem like yesterday is just the start of 2010. Have you achieve anything that you set for yourself in 2010? Did you have any unexpected breakthrough in 2010? I hope so you have and if you asked me, well, I do have achieve my goal and have some unexpected breakthrough in 2010.
Start of 2010
Earlier this year, I was exploring the possibilities of doing network marketing online. At that time, I was with a now defunct company. That time, we build a team using offline methods which I personally think that it is not the best way to do it. So, armed with my trusted philosophy “Believe to See and Not See to Believe“, I went out in search of this type of network marketing company.
Fortunately for me, I found one of my fellow internet marketer, Moon and both of us started a project in that network marketing company. However, what we found out is that we want something that can work from home online, generate result using the internet and easily duplicate to our team members. Although, that network company products are good, but on the online perspective, it is difficult to promote online. Thus, we call off this project.
Nevertheless, I still believe that I can find such company because of the trend that is happening now and beyond.
Never Give Up
Fast forward to May 2010, my friend, Moon, briefly contacted me about a network marketing company. She said that this maybe what I’m looking for. Without hesitant, I take the plunge to test drive the system for free.
As a matter of fact, I was skeptical that time because I do not wish to spend more time on another project that does not able me to do online.
Maybe it’s in me, I’ve started researching the system, the people behind it and the team. It was not until 3 months later that I join them.
Now, you perhaps be curious as why do I join 3 months later and which company that can do 100% online.
Well, the reason I join is because,
1) The team support is very strong. It adopt a systematic training approach for new distributors with zero knowledge. This is important because, if they do not have adequate training, they will be lost and time is wasted for the new distributor and myself.
2) The management put distributor first because the founder comes from a distributor background. So he know how the ground works and feel.
3) The company support online marketing. Even the founder himself got on to youtube, facebook and twitter. He lead by example that we as a distributor can promote it via online marketing which is a big thing for me because, this ended my search in a network marketing company that can be done online.
Thus on August 2010, I’ve join Vemma using their leads capturing system – Vemmabuilder. From then on, I never look back as I finally found a company that marry the beauty of Internet Marketing and Network Marketing. Hence, the word Internet Network Marketing is born.
I’ve made a video with fellow team member, Moon and Ding Neng on How to Do Internet Network Marketing Properly.
This is one of the many milestones I had in 2010. Below show many more achievements that I had in a short span of 4 months in Vemma.
Network marketing has indeed come a long way.
As technology advances and internet entering its maturity stage, Internet Network Marketing is definitely the trend in 2011 and beyond. Even baby boomers are learning how to use Facebook. So, this tells us that, using internet to do network marketing is not only the most viable way but the most common sense of doing a network marketing business.
To wrap this up, if you ever wish to join any network marketing company, my advice to you is:
1) Don’t join blindly just because of the monetary gains. Know which route you want to take, be it online or offline. If you like online so much, find a team that can help you do just that.
2) Look at the team support. Find out yourself how the team can support you when you are new and how they can support your new members. Ask if whether cross line be able to help too?
3) Look beyond what the distributor tells you. Research on your own and ask him or her if you encounter any problem prior joining. However, do not just join for fun. This will waste your time and their time too.
When you decide to join, stay committed, focus and learn the ropes. Because this is your business, your career and your path. If you think it that way, you will know where you stand before joining any network marketing company.
With that, I wish you all the best in 2011 and may dreams come true for you!
