Most people that start a venture in network marketing do not succeed. I am not trying to start off with bad news it is just a fact of the business. I personally believe that one of the main reasons that most people fail is that they never took the time to develop an MLM marketing plan. This is actually true of just about all business models.
Defining strategic objectives: the organization must have a clear vision and establish if the media channels will complement the traditional ones, or will replace them. We must define specific objectives (don't forget to check if they are SMART!) and we must also specify the contribution of the online activities to the organization's turnover.
