Becoming an entrepreneur by way of network marketing can be a very lucrative way to make a living if you know what you're doing.

In today's trying economic times, you may be an individual that is looking for a proven method to make money in order to replace the job you lost or supplement the income of your job that doesn't pay enough. If this is the case, you will find that you are not alone. A lot of financially disgruntled individuals are turning to a network marketing business for this very reason.

Network marketing companies have been around for years. Some of the more notable ones such as Mary Kay, Amway and others have made claims of turning ordinary working class people into multimillionaires in short periods of time. With this type of hype, it is no wonder that people are flocking to this industry to try their hand at being an entrepreneur.

Most network marketing companies suggest that you approach your "warm" market or friends and family first in order to ensure your business success. If you are starting a networking marketing business and find that you are uncomfortable with doing this or you don't have any friends or family in your area, here is another approach you can take to gain business success that includes no selling.

Compose A Voice Mail Message

Set up and create a voice mail message for your business. The message should include a brief explanation of the opportunity your business has to offer. In the message instruct callers to leave their name and number and let them know you will be sending out more information in a packet. Your voice should be enticing and filled with excitement about what you have to offer.

Place Ad in NewspaperPlace an ad in the "business opportunities" section for your network marketing business. This ad should include your voice mail phone number as well as be persuasive enough to make people want to call and get more info. Have the ad run in the Sunday paper. Sundays is when the readership for newspapers is at its highest.

Send Out Packets

Use the names and numbers that were left on your voice mail to send out your information packets. This will lead interested prospects to call you if they want to know more about your opportunity. Make sure your business cards and contact information are included in the packet.

Share The Business Opportunity

Only prospects that are serious will call for more details. When they do, this is your chance to share what your business is about. Don't feel like you have to sell it to them. Just give out information. Make them feel comfortable by reassuring them that you are in it to help them make money as well as make money for yourself. Ease any fears they may have about your opportunity being a scam. If your business requires that they attend some type of meeting then this is also the time to invite them.

Network marketing success can be much easier to obtain when using the above method. There is no need to sell the idea of your new business to uninterested friends and family unless you choose to.
