Internet marketing(I.M.) is a relatively new field which the MLM crowd found is a much better way of reaching potential downline members. Previously, multi-level companies have taught their members to contact friends and family first and then proceed to handing out business cards to strangers, and after that posting flyers and holding meetings in hotel rooms or even in their own living rooms. The internet changed all of that because now, meetings are now held online and new customers or prospects, can be solicited online.
For anyone attempting to move from MLM to I.M. there are many vehicles and techniques that can be used in order to reach the masses and generate a prospect list or customers. Things like article marketing, videos, paid for advertising, and these auto-dialers that randomly find phone numbers and then dial them are all effective tools. Most of these techniques are taught by people who are using the term "ATTRACTION MARKETING". This term being nothing more than getting your message out over the internet by some vehicle, and then attaching a link back to your website, so in essence people are find YOU instead of you finding THEM: in other words, they are "ATTRACTED" to you....but there are limitations.
The problem with all this internet marketing that is going on is that most people in the world, and in fact, most people on the internet, are NOT internet marketers. So therefore, when internet marketers go out in search of new members for their company opportunity, most of the time its the same old people who are seeing the message. Marketer NUMBER 1 is marketing his product to internet gal NUMBER 2 and then internet guy NUMBER 3 may market his message or opportunity back to internet marketer NUMBER 1 and on and on and on.
