I know that most new recruits are told to make that first list quickly and introduce everyone you know to the opportunity. This is the basic old school marketing plan for MLM and it is no longer practical. The problem is this sets the new recruits up to be rejected by people they actually care about, and continuous rejection usually results in the newbie quitting before they ever got very deep into the business.
Email Marketing: The marketing plan via email is quite an old one. It is an effective and popular way of promotion for many small business owners. Get the email data of your possible customers and send them your customize business emails to let them know what you are offering.
