Building A Network Business

Today I’m in one of my “it’s all getting too much for me” phases! In the midst of my life challenges below I’m working on building a network business. On top of that I am:

  • Getting ready for Christmas – yes in November – because my son and young family are coming to stay, very soon, and for a lovely long period of time
  • I’m all going to take them all to spend time with my Dad before Christmas – my sister will be with him over the holiday
  • My offline client wants a rush job done before Russ arrives to stay
  • AND I’ve started a new blog…

Not just any old blog (of course) it’s a Team Site designed in a special way for building a network business, and I want it to be the best it can be, so I have bought a course, to save time by learning from an expert in the topic.

Why Have a Site For Building A Network Business?

building a network businessThose of you who already have blogs may wonder why you would go to all the trouble of having a separate site for building a network business. Why not just promote it on your own blog?

For me, there are three answers:

  • I didn’t want my blog readers to feel they were just getting information about my own MLM – Premier Cashback. Yes, it’s MY long-term business now, but it’s not everyone’s “cup of tea”. And even I want to sometimes write about other topics than Premier Cashback!
  • The main reason is that I want to be able to help my personal recruits get sign-ups by rotating their link to traffic that arrives at my Premier Cashback team site.
  • It will be a “safe place” that my team can send prospects to (using their own ID). No-one would want to send traffic to JoyHealey.com as it promotes other affiliate offers that may tempt their prospect away.

The Biggest Challenge Of Network Marketing

These are my experiences – yours may differ.

  • Whatever network marketing business you joined, have you found it hard to introduce others?
  • And if YOU have introduced others, have THEY found it hard to introduce others?

That’s always been my biggest MLM challenge, and usually why I have left previous businesses. Because if no-one brings in new members, the business won’t grow. In fact with MLMs other than Premier Cashback your team will shrink as distributors leave when “nothing happens” and they find they’re not at least breaking even after a month or so.

Helping My Premier Cashback Team

Substitute “Your business name” for “Premier Cashback” as you read this section!

My aim is to help the people I introduce to my team, and give them some steps to follow, using the team site.

Although you can earn in Premier Cashback as a passive member, it will take much longer, and it’s a shame to leave the very generous support bonuses on the table. If everyone introduced just one new customer, everyone’s business would generate faster cashback as new customers make their purchases. There will be success stories to tell from people who have never had success before, and nothing breeds success like success.

To do this I am building a site that will help members get sign-ups.

While the site I am working on is aimed at building my network business (Premier Cashback) YOU can do exactly the same, for your own business, when you follow the same course that I am using.

By the way – seasoned bloggers – the package you will buy isn’t just about using a WordPress blog – it includes a vital plugin that drives the whole affiliate link rotator.

How To Build Your Network Business

Team Site For Premier Cashback

The crux of it is to focus on your team. Don’t worry if you don’t have a team yet – that’s covered!

My site so far is on the right. At the time of this post (late November 2015) the site is in its infancy, with lots more work needed, so don’t judge it yet please – I know of many areas (especially the header) that I need to improve. But it’s a start. IMPORTANT – I haven’t yet implemented the affiliate ID rotator, so that will appear to be not working.

I’m going to let the details of “how and why” this method of building a network business works be covered in detail in a video by Gavin Mountford – an excellent marketer specializing in MLM businesses.

So if you’d like to help inactive members in your business, a “Team Site” as described in Gavin’s training might be just what you’re looking for, so listen to this free “Team Site Traffic” training to see what it could do for your business.

Review of Team Site Traffic

As with all of Gavin’s courses, this one is packed with information and content. So much so that I’m still working my way through it I’m afraid – and to some extent I’ll have to let you look at the site I have built (BestHomeBusinessTeam.com/PremierCashback) to assess the results.

I hadn’t meant to do that, but there was an indication that the promotion might be coming to a close and I’d already started this article!

  • So far I have found the course well structured and comprehensive, and have received prompt help from the support desk, and Gavin himself, when I needed it.
  • You get the feeling he actually knows his members and cares about their progress.
  • This is a relaunch of a 2014 course and the content has clearly evolved from feedback by members, to add extra value and fix things that members found challenging.
  • I like the fact that, to avoid market saturation, Gavin doesn’t keep the course open all the time. In fact when I first found it, the promotion was closed, and I joined after being on a waiting list.
  • My only criticism is that Gavin may over-estimate the time we part-timers have available to build our businesses and it’s hard to keep up with all the steps involved. However, I’m possibly on more than one of his lists. His teaching and output is amazing.
  • Overall there’s an fantastic amount of value delivered compared to the price (at the time I bought it). Forgive me if it’s more expensive by the time you buy (or even closed)

Bonus When You Buy Team Site Traffic From Me

On top of Gavin’s extremely generous bonus package, I’d like to add my own bonus.

When you buy through my affiliate link HERE I will add an hour’s free coaching / consultation to talk through any problems you’re having producing your site, because I will probably have experienced them before you. So please let me know you bought through my link, and send me your JVZoo transaction ID.

Don’t delay – when I bought the course just a few days ago there was a huge list of Team Site Traffic bonuses, but Gavin has emailed his affiliates saying the price might be going up, and the bonus list reducing, as the number of customers he’ll be supporting goes up.

Without more ado, make sure you watch the video on my Team Site Traffic link, because even if you don’t buy the course, it’s excellent free training on building a network business.

I left it too late to plan for a financially secure retirement. Don’t make my mistake. Start building an extra income with a part-time (or full-time) business online.

Hi Joy,

Amazing post and I like Why You shifted the Premier Cashback thing on Another Website and think you took the right decision.

I Agree with the points you mentioned as milestones in network marketing.

Awesome post. Hope to see more from this blog.

Hi Joy,

I really liked the look of your new site: http://besthomebusinessteam.com/premiercashback/ Great job!

It’s great that your Son’s coming with his brood. Your Dad’s in for a big holiday treat.

Unfortunately, I lost my amazing Mom yesterday afternoon. She went peacefully during a nap. I’ll be heading to Kentucky tomorrow, for the celebration of her wonderful life.

This post about building a network marketing business was well written and value packed. I do like how you share what you’re doing with others in an attempt to help them.

Have a great week and enjoy your Family.
Edward

    Hi Edward,

    I’m SO sorry you lost your wonderful Mum. I know you had been worried about her. It’s never easy to let go, but if she HAD to go, peacefully having a nap must be one of the best ways for her. Although never easy for those left behind.

    Keep your family close – that’s what she would have wanted.

    Thinking of you all at this sad time, Joy

It’s wonderful that your son and family are visiting for Christmas. My daughter, who lives at least 3000k away, made it over here for my birthday in June this year. She was here for 2 weeks and we had a really memorable time.

I can appreciate the stress you’re feeling. I ran a blog and website for a Christmas site for 5 years, including a daily “advent calendar” activity for kids. I lost the job this year because the company changed ownership and a family member took over the site. I’m really pleased. Even though the extra income came in handy, I was ultra busy all December. The one advantage was that after all the rush I appreciated Christmas more than ever. One tip: do as much Christmas shopping as you can online.

I bought developer rights to Team Site Traffic when it first came out, and build team sites for others. So, I can highly recommend the plugin, the advantages for team building, and the training that comes with it.

A huge advantage is that those who work harder to promote the team site receive the most benefit and they get a dedicated website without having to build one themselves. As the site owner you are giving your team a great free resource and an incentive to join you and your team, so it helps you too.

    Hi Sue

    Yes, I’m really looking forward to seeing them all again, it will be worth the stress of getting ready when I get some hugs!

    Gosh – a Christmas site on TOP of all the usual family preparations. That really would be something. It’s funny how it can sometimes be a huge relief to lose a client. That happened to me not that long ago.

    I’m glad you like the Team Site Traffic too. I must confess I haven’t yet got round to putting the rotator on, as I felt I should concentrate on getting some content up there first. I’m not yet up to speed with how the rotator works, but pleased there’s a way to benefit those who put the most into it. Implementing that is probably this weekend’s project!

Hi Joy,

I see how starting another blog would seem redundant to some but I think it’s a good thing when you have two different topics going on. You want to keep the focus of each of them clear so it’s probably best that they’re separate. I’ve considered things like that myself.

Best of luck to you and your additional site. I’m sure it will flourish well.

    Hi Lea,

    I did think long and hard about starting another blog because, as you’ll know, it’s hard work that I could well do without!

    But besides wanting to help my team (and therefore myself, let’s be honest!) I felt it wasn’t fair to keep ramming on about Premier Cashback to people who may have no interest in its art and nutritional products – and probably no interest in network marketing either.

    Keeping this blog to be about Internet Marketing in general (as it says in the header!) will give it wider appeal, and I can still use it to explain how I’m building my business in general. While the posts will still refer to the ways I am applying the techniques to Premier Cashback, they will also apply any other business that readers may be running.

    But http://besthomebusinessteam.com/premiercashback will be a safe place my team can send their prospects without them getting distracted by posts on this more general Internet Marketing blog.

    Thanks for your good wishes, Joy

Love the look of your Blog. It’s nice that your son is coming for Christmas. My son live 2000 miles away so we don’t get to spend Christmas together that much anymore and it’s sad for me because his birthday is the day before

    Hi Claudia,

    Welcome to my blog and thanks for your kind words.

    What a shame your son lives so far away – I know how tough it is. But funnily enough with email and Skype I probably communicate more with him now than I did when he was just round the M25 – London’s greatest car-park LOL. Likewise, he tends to come and actually stay more now, rather than just a quick meal together and then back home. Hope you at least get some Skype time together over Christmas and his birthday.

When it comes to business networking, quality really is greater than quantity. Relationship marketing is imperative in B2B sales, as connections can produce much value directly or indeed indirectly. Great approach in developing connections “layer by layer”.

Hi Joy,
This is a very SMART program that Gavin Mountford created. I have it and if you have a team, it’s a great way to reward their efforts! Nice to see it here … Happy New Year!
