i know a lot of people in the mlm/network marketing industry tell people to simply create a list of 50 people and talk to them or the most famous one 'just post on facebook'. eventually you'll run out of people to talk to. most of these people on your list are not targeted traffic and we all know that in the business of sales its a numbers game. not everyone will buy on the first site so having a sales funnel and a capture page is so important. people need to constantly see your offer like billboards. this is something that i've learned in my year or so doing this mlm thing.
