Creating traffic for your Network Marketing team doesn’t have to be as difficult as it sounds
With Facebook ppc exploding, a sloth of new marketing courses are launching to teach you the latest and greatest ways to capitalise on the ever changing direction of traffic. Whether it’s low cost leads on Yahoo or Bing, there’s a new coaching program launching every other week. If you find yourself struggling to keep up, it might be time to take a step back and look at some simple actions you can take right now to send traffic to your downline.
Your blog is already the perfect medium for sharing traffic with others
A question I’ve had coming up a lot lately is “How do I promote my opportunity on my blog?” The short answer is you don’t (or at least not upfront). The focus on your personal blog should be concentrating on your personal brand by leading with value. However, the part that’s often overlooked here is the power of curiosity that comes from delivering value. When your mindset shifts from a sales mentality to a giving mentality, people are naturally attracted to finding out more about you. So as you build rapport with your blogging community, you create loyal followers who will be naturally inclined to click on the other pages you’ve created in your menu tabs. It’s these menu tabs are the perfect for introducing your team.
Here’s how to set up a page for your Network Marketing team
In this tutorial I’m going to walk you through the steps to create a page on your blog so that you can feature your team in a professional, non salesy way. If you are ready to set up your own page, you can use this tutorial as a reference and hit the pause button whenever you need to. If you already have a team page set up or are not yet ready to create yours, do me a favor and don’t watch the tutorial just for the sake of it! Your time is too valuable to waste on training you aren’t yet ready to implement. If you’d like to just learn about the plugin mentioned below, let the video buffer and then play it from the 12 minute mark.
Throw in a touch of personal branding on our new page and we’re done!
If you’ve been using the pretty Bar on your featured pages, you know what a gem of a tool it is for branding. Unfortunately last month WordPress brought in a new policy that doesn’t allow plugins that cloak links in their repositry. This means the free version no longer includes the pretty bar. Bummer! Anyway since I knew a lot of people (myself included) had grown to love the pretty Bar, I went in search of a solution.
The WordPress Bar looks just as pretty as pretty Link
In the screenshot below you can see what the plugin does to the links you use in the banners on your team page:
With your own logo embedded, it adds a nice professional touch!
If your niche is not Network Marketing, you can use the tutorial above to create a featured page for just about anything. It could be your online Tribe community, charities you support, your favourite authors, mentors and the list goes on. I’m sure you can come up with some creative ideas to put it to good use :)
