Hello fellow entreprenuer,

Before I started my journey with marketing on the internet, most biz-opps I’d ever marketed and promoted were done with offline marketing methods.

I have done direct mail promotions and mlm type opportunities and with the exception of the direct mail, all my lead prospecting was done face to face and I really was not that comfortable with it, but I did it anyway. And although I hated selling I managed to retail my products, go fig…

So when I came across that ad in USA today, make $100,000 per year with no personal selling, I was elated.

After calling the 800# and listening to the recorded message, I left my name and phone number and sure enough within 24 hours someone called me with a website to go to for more information on how to make $100,000 per year without any personal selling.

What I found at that site blew me away. Remember I hated selling, like 95% of the people do, so what I discovered on that site was amazing, at least it was to me

They were selling a very expensive vacation package, #1300 and up. I believe the company has since went out of business, however I really was not that interested in the product as much as I was interested in the “marketing system” this team had in place.

In 2005/2006, I had never seen anything like it.

Here I was cold calling people, prospecting using the 3 foot rule, talk to any and everybody within 3 feet of me about my business opportunity. So this set up was real eye opener for me.

They had voice mail broadcasting that called your leads. They had video on their website, auto responder systems, 800 number system.This was in 2005, I know now days everybody is on the cutting edge. Not so in 2005/06.

I got excited. I was ignorance on fire. 

Thus began my interest into internet marketing, and what a ride it has been.

In my next post I’ll share my ups and downs along this journey in and on being on the internet AND using it to market business opportunities.

 Thanks for stopping by, and be blessed.
