Build Your MLM Business with Free Online Classifieds

What do you need to know about MLM Free Classified Ads? This is a very popular, free method of advertising a MLM Business online. While I’m not personally a fan of placing free classified ads on different classified websites, there are other distributors who swear by it. If you are considering this venue to promote your network marketing business online, there are a few things you should know before you get started. In this article, I would like to share a few pointers for using online classified ads to build your business. Let’s get started.

1. Develop a Game Plan First: Before you start out with your marketing efforts, you need to develop a game-plan. That way you can work smart and save time and money in the long run. Make sure you take the time to write down what you want to accomplish and how you will do it. Identify which classified websites you will use, what type of ads you will write, how often you will post your ads, etc.

2. Be Consistent: Your next objective is to be consistent with your classified ads. That means that once you get started, you must make a commitment to keep posting classified ads on a regular basis for at least one to two years. If you just try it once or twice you won’t get the results you desire. Keep a chart, post new ads every day, every week, every month, etc. Get started, keep posting ads and don’t give up to soon.

3. Promote Anything But Your Business Opportunity: Most network marketers promote their business opportunity online. This means that competition is cut-throat. And it’s hard to be different and rise above the crowd if you are simply promoting your business opportunity, just like everyone else is. As an alternative, I think it’s much wiser to promote a free eBook or even promote your company’s product line. Think of the issues your target market is having and offer them solutions to their challenges. You can always offer your business opportunity on the back end, after you’ve established a relationship with your prospect.

4. Send People to a Capture Page: Don’t EVER send people to a company replicated website. Instead, send them to a capture page instead. Your # 1 goal is to get their name, email and phone number, so you can follow up with them via your auto-responder, phone messages and/or direct mail. Never expect a sale right away. Before you will make sales, you will need to cultivate a relationship with your prospects. Remember, people do business with people they know, like and trust.

5. Track Your Results: My final piece of advice today is to track your results. Use tracking codes to determine which MLM Free Classified Ads give you the best results. Track total visitors, new leads, and sign ups. Focus most of your time on the classified ads that work best. You should also split test different ads, as well as classified sites, to find out what gives you the best results. Ditch the losers and keep testing. Small changes can pay huge dividends.

Final Thoughts

In summary, these are my five best tips on using MLM Free Classified Ads. Although I don’t use this marketing method myself, many people do. Individual results will always vary, but you can improve your chances of success by following the five pieces of advice I mentioned above. If you’ve tried this method before leave us a comment and tell us how it went.

5 thoughts on “Build Your MLM Business with Free Online Classifieds

  1. I wanted to also mention something that many who use this form of advertising should know. I use free classifieds from time to time for my books, and when I used my regular email to register, I found myself swamped with spam emails. I suggest opening a separate email when registering for these free classified sites. I believe many of them sell your email to others.

    Just some advice I thought I should provide since I discovered it the hard way.

    • The biggest problem with the free classifieds is all the spam emails that you get. That’s why I don’t recommend it.

  2. These are some good points. Are there some free classified ad websites that you have found to be more successful than others? The one that I am most familiar with, and I think that probably most other people are also familiar with, is Craigslist. Also, would you offer something free on your capture page? Otherwise, I am not sure that I would leave my name and contact information on a capture page unless I was really, REALLY intrigued.

  3. Personally, I would use every possible avenue to promote and lead people to a capture page.

    Everyone likes free and free on line classifieds are an excellent place. Keep in mind that many others are using this avenue too, so having a unique and catchy ad will give you a much better chance.

    I also recommend posting in online forums. Find forums that directly relate to your MLM and post even about unrelated subjects. Just include a link in your signature to your capture page.

    There are many ways to share your capture page. Just use wisdom and don’t spam people and you will start getting many hits to your page.

    • Focus on providing value, be different than everyone else, and don’t spam people. That is the advice I like to give.
