I was compelled to do this short video because many of my friends online have an MLM business. What is happening is that they are using Face Book as their central hub. They are misrepresenting their companies by using a word or two and getting kicked off. Please watch this short video MLM people. The world is changing rapidly. We MUST be up on the changes if we are working online marketing. YOU NEED A BLOG….YOU NEED TO BE EDUCATED!
This information is so vital to people in MLM because I see alot of spam going on in the Facebook arena.
I’m a partner in a new company in which we support MLM’ers by teaching them the correct way to build their business which is inside out. First, build up the right mindset and breakthrough limiting beliefs so each person can operate from their peak potential.
We call our company, “Conscious Network Marketing” so MLM’ers can begin to build their self first, then attract the right people into their business.
Thank you for this vital video on personal branding first and foremost with a blog!
Good strong message and reminder Donna. I think so often the associates, distributors are not trained properly. People become self absorbed in the $$ and rush out, using the integrity and trust they have gained from their “friends” or “warm market” and abuse the power to quickly build a downline, because they “need” the money. In the process they lose the integrity with their new found celebrity and inflated value and forget to train, share value and support those that looked up to them.
People aren’t reading the policies and procedures for the business ventures. Most don’t seek accounting or legal advice. The internet is growing fast and the dollar signs are flashing like neon lights and in the process mistakes will be made that can be very costly. Treat your business like a business, take the precautionary steps to secure your future, not just make a quick buck or million.
It’s the same old adage: do unto others as you wish others to do unto you.

I appreciate you telling people to be careful how much advertising they do on the social networks. Not only can it get you kicked off but it is also a turn off and therefore counterproductive! Keep up the good work!

thanks Christy….It has become my “mission statement” lately to educate people that they have to brand themselves, not products.. Hope my advice is helping them in cyberspace!
This is a very important message.
If people will not learn how to educate themselves to build a personal blog that will brand themselves, they will keep spinning their wheels on the social sites and eventually as you said will be kicked off.
A personal blog acts as a buffer between them and their MLM company. It is also good in case they decide to switch company or if the company close its doors for any reason.
All the best,

I have could not said that better myself. Thanks Yossi
I totally agree with you! If you are in a mlm company and if you really want to do internet marketing you need a blog. It’s the best and fastest way to brand ourselves!

It is just so difficult for people to understand. They have heir MLM mindset to be telephone marketers. Most of them tell their downlines to have a Face book fan page. That’s it! My mission is to spread the knowledge to the MLM people because I see so many mistakes out there.
Thank you Marco
Like Danielle said, we should focus on branding ourselves and not our MLM. People will only join those they know, like and trust. So Many are using facebook the wrong ways…they need to take a step back and build relationships! Thanks Donna 🙂

Yes Sharon It has become a new “quest” of mine. So many people I know from MLM’s are getting kicked off of social networks. I am trying so hard to enlighten them to the fact that YOU NEED A BLOG!!! LOL
Great info as usual! Great being in one of your tribes too 🙂

thank you for your comment. I have so much fun tribing with you too.
thank you Danielle
I have so many MLM people that just don’t get it! I try to make things simple for them so they can start the correct way in marketing.
The best way(and safest way when it comes to company rules) to market on the internet is by Branding Yourself and NOT Your Company. The on-line game is very different than the off line game. I agree that a blog is essential! This is such great advice for all network marketers.
Thanks Donna! 🙂
