Getting Started

To work in the Profession of Marketing it is important to understand how the profession of   Marketing works.

Every company that has products and services for sale to the public has to do marketing and advertising to find new customers to buy their products and services.

The money spent on marketing and advertising is always designed into the price of the products and services they sell. On average this is about 40 percent of the price of the products and services. Every product and service you buy has the cost of marketing and advertising designed into it. What this means is as a customer you are always the one who is paying for the marketing and advertising for the products and services you buy.

In the Network Marketing industry the companies are designed to allow the customers to do the marketing and advertising for the company.

All Network Marketing companies have a business opportunity for their loyal customers. Some companies call this a distributorship while others call it an affiliate membership program. It really does not matter what they call it the purpose is the same. The business opportunity is made up of a compensation plan and ways to earn bonuses. This gives the loyal customers a way to earn the marketing and advertising money that is designed into the price of the products and services they have for sale.

Marketing and Advertising is a profession.

All companies and businesses that manufacture products and provide services have to do marketing and advertising to find new customers. Regular or what I call mainstream companies have employees or use an advertising agency. In both of these cases there are people who do a variety of task to develop advertising campaigns and a marketing strategy. One of the main purposes of marketing and advertising is called branding. Branding is the process of getting the products and services out into the public where people will see them and have the opportunity to buy them. All companies and businesses want as many people as possible to learn their name and hear about their products and services. Network Marketing companies not only want the public to learn about their products and services, they also want the public to be introduced to their home based business opportunity.

When a company hires an advertising agency to develop their marketing and advertising for them it is called outsourcing.

Outsourcing all of the marketing and advertising to an advertising agency is very common. The companies in the Network Marketing industry outsource all of the marketing and advertising to their loyal customers. This is what makes a Network Marketing company different from a mainstream company. Regular or what I call mainstream companies hire advertising agencies but Network Marketing companies don't, instead they outsource all marketing and advertising to the loyal customers who buy their products and services.

In the Network Marketing industry the loyal customers are also the advertising agency that does all of the marketing and advertising for the companies products and services.

The profession we call Network Marketing is doing the marketing and advertising for the companies we choose to work for, we introduce the public to everything the companies have for sell including the home based business opportunity.

If you applied for a job at an advertising agency you would have to have a college education and have a degree in the profession of marketing and advertising.

In the Network Marketing industry we do all of our own teaching and training so no college degree or formal education is needed. The only thing you need is a desire to learn and a desire to earn money. We provide all of the education that is needed to start a career and work as a Network Marketing Professional and we do this for free. Providing the right education is one of the main parts of our marketing strategy.

We will teach you how to use the tools of the trade like websites and what type of content to use on the website. Websites are one of the best tools used in the profession of marketing and advertising today. We will teach you how to create the right type of content to reach our target market. We will teach you who our target market is and why we only want to find the people in our target market.

Providing free education and training is an essential part of the Network Marketing Profession!

The first step to working in the profession of marketing and advertising is knowing where the money for marketing and advertising comes from and who is paid to do the marketing and advertising. If you have read the information above and understand it you have completed the first step.

The second step to working in the Network Marketing Profession is understanding how the marketing and advertising money is paid out to the customers who are doing the marketing and advertising for the company's products and services, this includes the home based business opportunity. To understand this you must study the compensation plan to learn how it works. Each company designs their own compensation plan to work the way they want it to work. The main element of the compensation plan is the monthly commission based income. Some companies also have bonuses that they pay out for people who put in the effort to earn them.

The monthly commission that is paid out comes from the monthly purchase of the products and services the company provides and is designed into the price of the products and services as I described above. The reason we can develop a monthly based commission income is because each loyal customer commits to buying a certain amount of products and/or services every month. This is a very important part of Network Marketing that has to be understood by everyone before they decide to become a customer of a Network Marketing company. This is the money that can grow to be large enough to allow you to quit your job and never have to work an hourly paying job ever again. Our goal in Network Marketing is to teach people how to develop a large enough monthly commission based income to live a life without the need for an hourly paying job.

This is what I find fascinating about the Network Marketing industry, they allow their customers to do all of the marketing and advertising for them instead of hiring a professional advertising agency. They pay out all of the money for marketing and advertising to their customers instead of paying it out to an advertising agency. The most fascinating thing about the Network Marketing Profession is you don't have to find a lot of people to become customers if you learn how to work smart and provide people with the right education and training for free so they can gain a full understanding of the work involved.

If you are still having trouble understanding how we earn money in the Network Marketing Profession you should go back and read all the pages of this website that come before this page.

The third step to understanding the Network Marketing profession is to understand a marketing term called target market. In the Network Marketing profession we are not looking for people to just buy the products and services the company we are working for sells. Our goal is to find people who have a desire to learn how to develop a lifetime monthly commission based income. We are looking for people who need a career, we know there are millions of people who need a career that will provide the income to live a better life. Our goal is to find these people and teach them about the Network Marketing profession so they can become our business partners. A good example of this is why I have made Global Domains International my primary company to work for, I am not looking for people who need to own a website, I'm looking for people who need to earn more income by learning how to work for Global Domains International. The reason I am promoting Global Domains International is because they have the best home based business opportunity available. So my target market is people who are working low hourly paying jobs that do not make a very good career. My target market is young adults who are ready to start a career and want to find a career that will provide a good future income. My target market is anyone who has a need to earn more monthly income. I know there are millions of American's who are in my target market because I hear about them all the time in the news. In marketing the term target market refers to the type of person who we are looking for to become a customer for the company we are working for, in Network Marketing we are looking for people who need to learn how to earn more monthly income. My goal is to provide my target market with the tools and training they will need to develop a lifetime monthly income.

The fourth step to learning how the Network Marketing profession works is to understand the types of marketing and advertising we use.

Content marketing is our primary type of marketing and advertising. This type of marketing is how we educate the public about the products and services we have to offer. Our first goal is to teach people how the industry works. If you have read the first three pages of this website you should have a complete understanding of how the industry works. Each page of this website describes a different aspect of the industry. There is a few different types of content used on the previous pages of this website, written content and the videos. Written and video content are the most common types of content used to describe and illustrate how the industry and profession work. The Network Marketing profession revolves around the process of illustrating and demonstrating how the industry works and most importantly is how monthly commission based income is earned.

There are several different way's to get good content to use in the Network Marketing profession. The most popular way is to learn it from someone else. Everything I have here at my website has been taught to me by someone else. Some things I learned by reading books, blogs and newsletter publications. Some of what I learned came from watching videos produced by teachers of the profession. Now it is my job to take what I have learned and teach it to other people. Teaching is the process of taking what you have learned and then teaching it to someone else. The process of teaching people what we have learned is the main work we do as a Network Marketing professional. We do this by producing content and displaying it on our websites so it can be found 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The best content should be able to be found by anyone at any time and provided for free.
