Strategy _ similar to business strategy, marketing plan will capture strategies required to support your business strategy. For example if your business goal is to achieve 20% increase in sales, your marketing strategy would be to 1) introduce new product, 2) increase price for premium offerings, 3) recruit more distributors and offer commission scheme and so on. Strategy is king. When you can see your business in totality, I can assure you that you will find it easier to manoeuvre. Marketing plan is the place to address all these issues.
Now for the good stuff. I am going to tell you how to set up a modern MLM marketing plan that actually works for you 24 hours a day 7 days a week. The first thing is to find a high quality network marketed product or service that you can be passionate about. Being passionate about it makes it much easier to stick with long enough to really learn about it and see the benefits. Your passion will be felt by those you talk to about your opportunity. Personally I am passionate about health and nutrition. That is why I market what I consider to be the highest quality nutritional products available.
