60+ Ideas/Suggestions For Offline Marketing

I've been doing some research & reaching out to people to identify more strategies and tactics for marketing offline.


Well, at the end of every downline has to be a functioning and active retail seller, somebody selling to end users. For many MLM operations this translates to retail selling in the local region - selling away from the local region would be in my book at least, Internet Marketing...

This is necessary to generate the sales from which we get our commissions - that income we get whether we're asleep or awake...

Anyways, there's a great little posting here at which you'll find interesting & useful to get you pointed in the right direction.

My thanks to kstai at for this little gem.

STOP trying to copy the gurus too much - it will end in tears...!

I've been looking at what the gurus do, how they do it, and how many others try to copy them exactly.

And I'm always curious about the claimed 95-97% of people who start out in network marketing, multi level marketing and internet marketing and fail to achieve what they really want.

I've been thinking about why this might be - I've come up with a number of contributing factors.

Some you will know.

But I bet this is one you don't - THEY TRY TO COPY THE GURUS TOO CLOSELY!!!

Web 2.0 - What's The Big Deal?

Web 2.0 - a term used almost without thought these days.

I do a lot of work with corporates, traditional marketing functions, and generally they just don't get 'it' just yet. And they need to. They will, or they'll die - it's that simple.

So, Web 2.0 - what IS the big deal?

That's what this article is about - in overview form.

The killer point is this, quoting Dave Evans from the introduction to his book Social Media Marketing: An Hour A Day

about the fundamental paradox of giving up control - you can’t control conversations that aren’t yours – and simultaneously gaining influence by becoming a respected member of the communities that matter to you.
So, grab a coffee, have a read. It is a big deal, and it's the way of the future.

When paradigms shift (and this is one of those times) then all players go back to Square 1. Especially the big players...

Have a great one.

Folks, it's about the lack of understanding of business fundamentals.

I've posted the article at

So, for you home based business people out there who thought you wouldn't have to get in to the messiness of business, for those who thought network marketing and any attempt to generate extra income could be done less, well, formally, guess again!

With best wishes for your $uccess...
