Last month, I blogged about direct sellers and network marketers need to set up their own blog or website that is separate from their company’s replicated website. Here’s my original post
If you’re new to direct sales, network marketing you may not know the importance of setting up your own blog or website because I certainly didn’t. One of the main reasons why you need to consider setting up a blog (besides the fact that it’s relatively easy to do), is that it gives you the freedom to promote YOU. It’s your opportunity to tell potential prospects why they should partner with you. It’s your opportunity to talk about your company’s products and opportunity, if you choose to. It’s your opportunity to showcase the things you’re darn good at which you can’t showcase on a replicated website.
Your company’s replicated website is a generic website that has the same content and is given out by the hundreds and thousands to distributors. It's beautifully designed, no doubt, with important info about the company and products, however it's not about YOU.
Google, Yahoo and other major search engines index content. The more original the content, the better a blog or website, will be ranked. I could go on and on about why you need to have a blog. But if I haven’t talked you into the importance of starting a blog or website to brand yourself just yet, perhaps this article by Bill Hartzer will shed some light for you. The article specifically discusses the importance of search engine optimization for network marketers. Definitely check it out and share with your team!
