    Hello

    Im new to Network Marketing and need help. Recently checked out Carbon Copy PRO and Family IQ type businesses but not too sure if these are scams or not. Im on a budget and dont have 1K -2K to spend. Found this useful site and read it on a regular basis. Can anyone please help suggest ways i can start something on line where i can build some residual income or make it a full time thing.

    Thanks.

    I suggest you look at multi-tier affiliate programs online and explore treating it like a network marketing program. That way you don't spend anything, yet you still get to recruit others onto your team and make money in a manner that is internet-based. Despite the name 'network marketing,' the emphasis of most of these companies is on offline direct sales, as in in-person presentations or closing of customers. If your company tries to insist upon offline personal labor as your main source of sales, they will steer you away from passive online systems for selling, because they prefer that your direct labor be involved in getting a sale.

    Marketing and sales can be merged, or entirely separated functions depending on a particular business, but marketing in my eyes is finding new prospects (e.g., through a car commercial), while sales is closing the prospects (e.g, at a car dealership). The normal internet process is to get people to a website (marketing) whose copy and funnel will lead to the visitor buying something (sales). You will have to decide to go with an internet-based MLM that is okay with this process, or others that demand in-person active sales as the heart of your networking activity.

    One way is to post up offline posters on community boards. Seek out other home business who advertise on community boards. Also if you can find someone who is doing something similar in MLM get them to join you.

    Commission River is one example if you want the telecom niche (tough). There are hundreds of other affiliate programs, you'll have to pick your topic and check to see that they won't hassle you if you choose to market 100% online.
