Now it is within reach for every network marketer to build a global business thanks to social media. Your world is truly your oyster. It starts with an opportunity that allows you to easily grow internationally. Once that it is in place you’ll want to go to work networking through social media. Thanks to Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Skype and beyond you can easily connect with other entrepreneurs around the globe.
This may be a controversial subject but one I believe needs to be discussed. I know the value of online marketing, building your brand and your authority online. I know these days people also shop for sponsors and the first place they will look is to the web. They will do a google search on you so it is more and more important to have an online presence.
The Truth of Online Marketing
However the truth of the matter is that it takes time to build your online presence from your blog, facebook, twitter and youtube account among others. Especially if you are relying on organic marketing through content creation, blogging and social media you will have to commit some time to build your content and following on social media.
Building Network Marketing Team Takes Time
When it comes to building network marketing organizations, this too takes time. You are making contacts, directing people to tools, you are doing 3 -way calls, you are getting in front of your people’s decision making people, you are working with your emerging leaders, you are training your team members so how do you do it all?

21st Century Book Marketing Stressed How Imperative You Build a Social Media Platform Now
No surprised authors are strongly encouraged to build their social media platforms even prior to releasing their book or books. The refrain was build your platform now even before writing your book or releasing your book. First, I have to say this was a fabulous event and there was so much that went on at this event in terms of speakers and content I’ll devote several posts to this extraordinary conference.
I couldn’t be happier that from publishers, publicists, authors and everyone in between advised to get a Facebook Fan Page and build your following and build up your followers on Twitter. This is refreshing advice and indicative of the changing world we live in.

Blogging Everyday 5 Days a Week Has Been a Push
Blogging everyday 5 days a week has been a push for me. I’d find myself writing my posts early in the morning to leave the majority of my day for the other tasks that need to be done in my business. There were times that I was bone tired having suffered both adrenal and thyroid exhaustion so finding the right balance can be tricky.
I Created the 30 Day Blogging Challenge for Encouragement
I created the 30 Day Blogging challenge as a way to encourage myself and others to stay the course. Maybe for some blogging everyday comes naturally however I found for me, I felt just a bit out of balance with the continued push to create great content without overwhelming myself. I am so glad I did the challenge because it did get easier to write and come up with good content and stay consistent. Sometimes pushing can be a good thing. I almost saw this as sprint for the month of August.

Woke up early this morning and of course I ended up on my laptop blog walking. I became inspired by Terry Tiessen taking on Darren Rowse’s Seven Link Challenge. First I want to commend Terry for her passion and commitment to take on the Seven Link Challenge, Terry is a fairly new MLM blogger and she is jumping in with both feet. What respect and admiration I have for her.
Perhaps because I have only been blogging for a year and half I can identify with Terry’s passion and desire to let no moss grow under her feet when it comes to upping her blogging game. It takes courage and a sense of adventure and introspection to be willing to take on the challenge of our more seasoned colleagues like Darren Rowse.
