I agree Anisha,
I'm trying to find a great way to market the memberships as well. Only because I want to sponsor business partners into the TOP program. For them to succeed in TOP they need to be able to sign up memberships.
The major problem here is that I want to generate those member leads online, in an automated fashion.
Unfortunately our policies and procedures really puts us in a bind because in order for us to put up a product-specific website, we have to get corporate approval.
That costs money and every time we make changes to those sites we have to resubmit them again for approval. This means that we can't effectively split test websites to produce better conversion rates, which rules out maximizing any Pay Per Click campaign to it's potental.
Unfortunately it also rules out using a blog in a company specific manner because that too would have to be reapproved every time you update your blog. Between the two it rules out effective Search Engine Marketing altogether.
As sad as it sounds, our internet policies and procedures put us at a severe disadvantage as far as marketing online. They're a little naive and sorely dated.
I'm not against marketing offline, but there is no leverage there... you actually have to physically be there doing it and that doesn't work around the clock for you.
Besides there's no excuse for not marketing your business online in this day and age.
Don't worry Anisha, I just posted a forum topic in the Main Discussion forum to see if I can get any ideas on how to get around this. When I figure out a way, you'll be the first to know
Hang in there, I'm right there with you. Besides, when we sort this out we'll be able to teach our downlines how to work around these issues and the rest will be gravy.
Feel free to message me if you want to brainstorm on this
