The idea was "Go Wide Fast" and then push depth from a massive front line. You see, it does not matter how you bring someone in, what matters is that you give them marketing options, show them a track to run on that will get them into action ASAP. So even if you are doing strictly MLM online marketing and you get really good at it.
You need to have options for those you sponsor who can't master the online approach and as an add on for those in your downline who are learning email list online marketing so they can keep their pipeline full. So here is my recommendation. Use online MLM marketing with at least 2-3 other offline or crossover approaches to keep diversified Then adjust the time spent on marketing approaches based on lead flow.
When your online lead flow starts to kick off, drop back on other approaches as necessary, but always keep your pipeline full. Starting an online marketing campaign the first time can be tough, especially if you have no idea what web marketing strategy to implement. The common downfall of new online marketers is that they are unable to find a suitable online marketing strategy that is a perfect match for their type of business.
