Getting started in business isn’t so hard. The first step is usually easy. You decide to do it. OK job done. Erm, now what? For want of a better idea, you start your blog. Everyone has a blog these days right? What do they all write about? What do I want to say? Erm..
Oh yeah. I want to write about marketing, network marketing. And online marketing, network marketing online. No wait a minute, green business, natural, eco-friendly, green businesses and marketing those green businesses. And network marketing. Network marketing green businesses. Well one or all of these, I haven’t concluded which just yet. Are there any green MLM businesses? That is my first research project. And online marketing is my second. Those are currently underway.
So what I have found out so far? Well two companies have surfaced in all that I have been reading out in the big world wide web over the past few weeks. One company that has actually been around since the eighties surprisingly. And we all thought that ‘green’ was a new thing, well at least recent. But this company has been going strong for 25 years and although it makes strong its claim NOT to be an MLM business, its not far off and actually I have no problem with that, but you can see why they might want to distance themselves from the stigma of MLM.
It’s just semantics to call it a direct selling company in my mind. Since MLM is just a marketing strategy and a pretty good one in essence. So you find a product or service you like and you tell a friend.. and they give it a go and start buying it too, but the company is grateful to you for recommending them to your friend, so they give you a cut of the action. Doesn’t sound too bad so far? I think as long as you can find great products that you needed to buy regularly anyway and you want to keep using them and are happy to recommend them to other people, you can’t go too far wrong. If that company pays me to spread the word about their products instead of spending that money out annoying adverts on TV, it can’t be all bad can it?
Another business I am currently researching is brand new, well in its infancy anyway. Just about 18 months old and seemingly doing well, selling the perfect product for absolutely everyone, food! Fresh, healthy, organic vegetables. I am keen to get on one of their webinars soon to learn more about it, especially since there is still the opportunity to get in early and be a part of their pioneer program. So watch this space for more information, I will shortly post a link to their site, so you can check it out for yourself.
So here I am at the beginning of an exciting journey to a place I cannot completely imagine yet, but I’m working on that.
