What Makes an MLM Leader?

How did the MLM Gurus become Gurus? How did the Online Marketing Leaders become Leaders?

What makes the leaders in the Internet Business World?

We see the MLM gurus on the web. We read about their achievements, their meetings, their trips, their lifestyles. Do you wonder sometimes how they got where they are? What makes a marketing leader? Do you think sometimes whether you could do what they’ve done?

What they’ve done is not that complicated that you can’t do it. How they got to be industry leaders is not beyond your reach. It takes work and determination, but you can be a marketing leader. With the right understanding and hard work on your part, you too can be an Internet Marketing Leader.

Here’s a few of the things that set industry leaders apart from those that come and go in the online marketing world.


How did the Internet Marketing Leaders get where They Are?


1. They Treated Online Marketing as a Business.

Seems obvious, but it’s not always done by everyone claiming to have an online business. Leaders understand that this is a business and they must treat is as a business. They must put in the efforts to build and grow their business, just as a CEO of a major company works to grow their business.

Leaders in Online Marketing don’t go into this with an attitude that they’ll give it a shot and see if it works. They go into it with the attitude that it will work and that they will stick to it and keep learning until it does work. Period! Leaders treat their business as a real business.


2. Internet Marketing Leaders Planned to Succeed!

They set their goals and made their plans on how they would get to those goals. Leaders know where they are going and how they are going to get there. They made long term goals of great achievements and made short term goals of the steps along the way to get there. Marketing Leaders know what they need to be doing to reach their goals and they do it.


3. MLM Leaders are Persistent.

Network Marketing is a social networking business. It takes time to build a social network whether off-line or on-line. Leaders know that it will take time and they are prepared to stick with it to the successful end. Leaders see their goals as worth the efforts and time that have to be put into the business. They make mistakes and fall down at times, but pick themselves up and learn from their mistakes. They are persistent and tenacious at reaching the success they strive for.


4. Marketing Leaders Work Hard!

The Gurus may give the appearance of living a leisurely life in a beach house, but they also work hard. They enjoy many of the good things of life, but they also spend many days away from home training and speaking and working their business down line or helping others in the business. They spend many hours working their business, especially in the early years. They work their business even on days they don’t feel like it. They work hard!


5. MLM Leaders Prospect.

MLM, Network Marketing, whatever you want to call is it a business of networking with others and finding others who want to build a business. MLM Leaders know that and they spend most of their time networking and prospecting. Internet Social Media has changed the format used to do this, but it’s still networking and prospecting. Leaders in the industry look for others who want to build successful businesses. They look for people who want to be leaders in the industry. Leaders work to duplicate themselves.


These are some of the more obvious things that MLM Leaders and Industry Leaders do to become who they are. Would you like to be a Marketing Leader? Do you have what it takes? Are you willing to put in the effort and time that it takes?

Being an Online Marketing Leader is not a “think I’ll give it a try” type thing. It’s a “I’m going to Do It!” type thing.

5 Twitter Tips to Grow Your Business

5 Tips for Using Twitter Effectively.


When I first started my Twitter account, I honestly didn’t know what to do with it. I’m still learning every day.

Once, I read somewhere that you should “retweet” 10 tweets a day in order to help grow your twitter presence. Trouble was, I didn’t know what it meant to “retweet.” Over time, I’ve learned how to retweet and how to do other things on Twitter. Now it’s all making more since.

5 Twitter Tips

5 Twitter Tips


I’d like to share 5 simple tips to help a new or an experienced Twitter user. There are more tips, of course, but these are 5 that I feel are useful to emphasize.


1. Watch the experts before you start tweeting much.

There are many leaders in the marketing industry who effectively use Twitter for there business. Examples of a couple to watch are Lilach Bullock (@lilachbullock), Michael Brenner (@BrennerMichael) or Scott Stratten (@Unmarketing). There are so many others; too many to mention. It pays to watch them for a while first before getting too into your twitter activity. Watch how often they tweet and what kind of things they tweet. Most do not just tweet information about their own blogs or websites. Most share works of other industry leaders. They try to bring useful information to their followers.

Spend some time watching the experts, then work to use the best techniques they demonstrate.

2. Give Great Content to your Followers.

Twitter and Social Media in general is about building relationships with others. You followers follow you because they want what you share. That’s how it should be, anyway. You need to share content that makes people want to follow you.

Share links to good articles or blogs. Share inspirational quotes. Share anything that you think will benefit your followers. One of the best ways to grow your followers is to provide information others will want to read. When your followers like what you share with them, they are more likely to retweet your information to their followers and then some of them might follow you, as well.

Become known as someone who shares useful information. Give great content to your followers.

3. Be Socialable.

This may seem obvious, but maybe it’s not to some. I didn’t get it at first. What I mean is present yourself as sociable and pleasant. Upload a friendly picture of yourself. Use a picture with you with a SMILE. People want to be friends with people who look and act friendly. The first place to start is with a nice SMILE.

Write your Bio so people know a little about who you are; your interests; where you live; what you do. Share something about yourself that will make people want to know you better.

Thank those who follow you. You can do this with automation is you want, but either way, thank your followers. They didn’t have to follow you, so say “Thanks!” Thank those who re-tweet your content. Be gracious and friendly.

Reply back to those who send you a personal tweet. Start a conversation. That’s what social media is all about. Be Sociable.

4. Define who you are.

Find what you are all about on Twitter. What is your interests: marketing, music, etc? Define who you are and what you stand for by sharing content related to that.

People tend to follow those people sharing content about what interests them. So share content on your interests and others of like interest will follow you.

5. Interact with others.

Social media is all about interacting with other people around the world. So interact with others. Respond to their tweets. Thank them for their tweets or comments. When you interact with others, you show yourself friendly and others will want to interact with you and follow you.

The key to social media marketing is to be sociable; to interact with others; to be friendly!

I know there are other tips and ideas to improve how you use Twitter, but I hope this short list will be of help as you begin or continue your Twitter experience.
