Attraction marketing is a set of strategies used by entrepreneurs providing self-employment business opportunities, such as web- or home-based sales, to other entrepreneurs. Branding is the art and science of creating a recognized and singular image for a company or group of products. Personal branding is a crucial element of attraction marketing, giving potential clients a reason to seek out more information about business opportunities. Rather than actively soliciting new entrepreneurs for a business opportunity, attraction marketing strategies seek to attract potential client/owners to seek out a well-defined brand.
Many MLM companies recommend starting with a list of 100 people you know, called your warm market. Although it's not a bad place to start when looking for customers and business builders, the technique could also backfire and get to the point where you're annoying friends and family. You're better off spending your time finding people who are interested in what you've got rather than trying to convince your commuting buddy to sign up when he doesn't want to.
The internet has made it easier than ever for people involved in multilevel marketing (MLM) to find leads or people who might be interested in your product, service, or business. Instead of just reaching out to people you know or approaching strangers, you can create a website, build an email list, leverage social media, and develop referral programs to generate solid leads that can eventually translate to sales.
