Discover Three Excellent Internet Marketing Strategies Designed To Give Your ACN Business Fast Success!
Have you had enough of only making a small number of leads per day? Is your ACN sales team growing at a remarkably slow rate? Would you like to find a way of quickly communicating with thousands of people per day at a low cost? Then read on!
Like many MLMs, ACN do not allow their reps to use their trade name online, unless they gain permission to do so. This is to ensure a clear, consistent message is used by all reps, and that no unauthorized claims or guarantees about ACN are being made to protect them from any lawsuits. Due to this, the key to using the internet for fast success is to sell yourself. Make people interested in who you are, what you have to offer, and how you can help improve their lives. Entice your prospects to inquire about your product.

What’s So Good About The Internet?
The main benefit of using the internet is the volume of consumers you can communicate with at a very fast rate. For instance, it may take you a week to speak to 100 people face to face, whereas this can be achieved in a matter of hours using the internet, saving both time and money.
However, even though you have access to millions and millions of consumers at your finger tips, you still need to segment and target your market accordingly. As stated in another article, you could be working flat out for no money as you are not selling to the correct market. Who is your market? Where can you find them? If the majority of your customer base use Facebook on a regular basis, why are you trying to reach them on MySpace? Make sure you know where you can reach your customers before you waste time and effort in the wrong areas.

How Can I Use The Internet For Fast Success?
First, you need to create a website! This website should give details of who you are, what you sell, and what benefits there are; but without mentioning ACN. This needs a level of creativity, but once you have your sales message sorted, you can begin to use the internet for fast success.
There are three main ways to use the internet to leverage your business:
1. Pay Per Click (PPC)
2. Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
3. Social Media
PPC And The Route To Fast Success
PPC involves using paid advertising networks to display your advert to targeted visitors. The benefit of this method is the speed and ease in which you can gain high levels of exposure and generate a large number of leads. This is also a highly targeted form of advertising, as it is only shown to customers who are already actively searching for your product.
For example, a search for “Video Phone VoIP” creates the following results:
The PPC adverts appear in the lilac box at the top, and in the “Sponsored links” right hand side column. As you can see, these are prime positions on the search results, and are likely to lead to fast success. These qualified prospects are more likely to be accepting of your sales message as they are already looking for your product. This can also be targeted towards a designated area, so if for example, you only want to communicate to the people of Arizona, then your advert will only appear in Arizona. It is vital that you choose the correct keywords in order to target the correct audience. As I’ve said before: there is no point in trying to sell your product to the wrong people.
The only downside of this is that it does cost money, but as they say: you’ve got to spend money to make money! But, as the term would suggest, you only pay when people click on your ad. This can be controlled to a set budget, meaning it is virtually impossible to overspend.

SEO And The Internet
SEO involves getting your website to the top of the search engine results page. For example, when searching for “ACN video phone review”, the pictured results appeared:
The page from “blog.tmcnet.com” is the most optimized, and so it appears at the top of the search results. It is vital to try and get your website to have the number one spot on search engine results, or at least in the top 10. A very small percentage of internet users will click on to the second page of results, and so if you want your message to be seen, you need to get optimizing. The problem with SEO is the time and expertise it takes to fully optimize your page. However, it is proven to be successful and if you manage to perfect the skills, it can lead to fast success.
Social Media And ACN
For me personally, social media is the most effective internet tool for fast success, establishing a good reputation and for building long term relationships.
Social media, or Web 2.0, is an interactive platform for you to build your website on and allows you to strike up a conversation with your customers. Web 1.0 websites typically deliver a message to the consumer, similar to a newspaper advert, and the viewer simply reads the sales message. Social media enables the business to have a two-way dialogue with the customer, and build a strong relationship.
For example, instead of telling your customers about how great ACN is, you are able to have a conversation about ACN products. Your customers are able to leave comments, play with widgets and interact with you and your business. The benefit of this is that customers are involved and have first hand experience with you and your business. By enhancing the brand experience, consumers are more likely to remember your business, revisit and recommend it to friends.
There are many different social media tools you can use to achieve fast success (social networks, media hosting and sharing, wikis), but I believe that blogs are the most effective.

Blogging About Your ACN Business
Blogs are an incredibly useful for allowing the customers to familiarize themselves with both yourself and your product. The reader is able to discover more about who you are, what your business is and how you can benefit their lives, but in a friendly, conversational manner. Blogs can be created free on such sites as WordPress and Blogger, but will cost in terms of manhours.
Adding a personality to the blog makes you appear more human to the reader, rather than a clinical, corporate robot. Make sure your personality comes across in every post so that the reader can emphasize with you and can relate to who you are as a person. Making the business appear more human and approachable is likely to be more welcoming to the consumer, and they are more likely to respond to a soft-sale.
The most fundamental rule of blogging is to make it interesting and engaging so that readers will want to return to the blog and read another entry. Repeat views signifies the start of a relationship, and a loyal following. Once the readers get to know you, they will start to trust you, and are more likely to react positively to any sales messages.
Blog about what else is currently happening in the industry. This will give yourself the appearance of an expert, and people will begin to trust you. They will be more likely to take your advice and react positively to your sales messages. Would you take fashion advice from someone who knew nothing about the current trends?
Blogs also need to updated on a regular basis. This allows you to regularly stay in contact with customers, retain front of mind position, and also signifies that you and the business are not out of date. You are a modern business, and what you offer is relevant to today’s world.
Blogs can also provide a source of income by allowing paid adverts to appear on your site. Advertising networks will pay you to host adverts on your blog, meaning that while you are sourcing and attracting leads, you are getting paid to do so! This extra cash can be used however you desire, however, I would recommend using it to plow back into your PPC advertising to hopefully generate more leads.
Look at the following examples for inspiration on how to successfully utilize your blog.
ACN And The Internet Summary
So there you have it. Three effective marketing strategies to help you achieve fast success on the internet. There are many other strategies you can implement, but I will save them for a later post. I would not suggest relying solely on the internet to generate leads, but rather to support your offline activities. Internet marketing can really boost your business, but remember to prepare a well thought out strategy if you want to be successful.
