Why You Need Your Own Site
Why the replicated site from your MLM is not effective to bring people to your opportunity.
Does your MLM or Business Opportunity offer a free web site built for you? Have you read about business opportunities which say they will give you everything you need to build your business with the website they provide? Chances are, what they are offering will not lead to business success.
You Need Your Own Site!
You need your own web site, not a replicated site provided by your company or business opportunity if you are depending on the site to bring in fresh followers who will lead to business partners; especially if you are planning to use organic traffic (traffic which finds you through the search engines).
Search engines have the job of trying to provide unique, relevant information to those searching for information. If you use a replicated site, the search engine knows there are hundreds or thousands of the same site out there, so it will ignore it. Search engines will look for sites with fresh information on them.
Having your own site allows you to provide fresh, relevant information that will bring new visitors to your site from the search engines. You can add other means to lead more people to your site by using keyword optimization or by using paid advertising to help drive traffic to your site. But a big key in being successful is having your own material.
Another plus to having your own site is that you own it and can control what you do with it. With that in mind, you should have your own domain, for example (example: yourname.com, or workwithme.com). You should avoid using someone else’s domain (example: yourname.companyname.com) as your main page because things change in the business world and your company could change it’s policies, or go out of business, etc. If you main site is part of their site, then they own it and can control it.
There are many hosting sites out there where you can host your own domain. One such hosting site is hostgator.com. With hotgator.com, you can host unlimited sites for about $10 a month. You can find your own domain at domain sites such as godaddy.com. Keep an eye out for a coming post on how to find your domain and host your site.
There are other sites that host domains, but the key is to own your own site; whether it’s a blog or a website. You need to be in control. You need to be able to go in and make changes and updates. This all may seem overwhelming, but there is plenty of help to assist you with every step. Continue to look through our site to find helpful information.
Again, You Need To Own Your Own Site.
Here’s wishing you great success!
