What is a MLM forum? And how does it work? I define a network marketing forum as an online website where network marketers can engage in conversations with other networkers. They can ask questions, vent their feelings, share opinions, complain, and share their success stories. Additionally, they can help other networkers and answer their questions.
I guess the key ingredient is that the website is interactive, where the visitors can participate in the conversations. Some people would consider a forum similar to a chat-room, or something of that nature. There are a few network marketing forums online, such as the Better Networker. This website also serves as a network marketing forum.
Sadly, I’ve found that most network marketers don’t really have a coach. Once they get signed up into the business opportunity, their sponsor forgets about them. In my opinion, this is one of the major reasons people quit MLM. They simply aren’t getting mentored or coached. And if you can find a way to help struggling network marketers, you will become a person with a perceived value. And people will want to join your team.
One way to improve your business is to create a forum for your downline, and/or for other network marketers too. If you have a large organization, you might want to create a simple website where people in your downline can ask questions. You could personally answer the questions or have another successful distributor in your downline do it. This might help reduce the attrition in your organization a little bit.
I also believe a good forum could be a solid business model in and of itself. In fact, that’s one of the reasons I created this website. I wanted to establish a community where network marketers could share ideas with each other. Although we are still in our infancy, we get one or two questions a week right now. I know that my numbers will increase as my website traffic continues to grow.
Another good option to a MLM forum is to have a blog. If you allow people to leave comments or questions on your blog, I think that’s a good idea. The only downside is that a majority of the people will spam your blog trying to promote their business opportunity or affiliate program. You need a way to moderate the comments, so the “spammy” comments never show up on your blog in the first place.
If you have a network marketing question, or need help, you can ask your question on many different pages within our website. Please know that we are here to help you, not recruit you.
In conclusion, a MLM forum is an online website or community where network marketers can communicate with each other to share ideas, get help, coach each other, complain, or share success stories. Although there are several good MLM forums online, I believe that starting your own MLM forum could be a good business idea that would supplement (or replace) your MLM business income.
