If your company has a website, everything you just described can be done through the Internet - absolutely everything. Personal contact is still required to be successful and you can do this by way of telephone, email, IM and Skype. Don't be afraid to direct people to a website that has a demo of your product. Make sure whatever company you are a part of, has a website you can sent your prospects to.
You have the ability to reach millions of people in every country using the Internet to market your products. It is essential that you drive your prospects to a website and then follow up with them personally.

I hope this helps. All the best in everything you do.

Hi, I've been an offline network marketer till I discovered this great stuff happening online recently.

I'd like to know this group's experiences in integrating offline effort with the online work. To rephrase, sure one gets loads of leads now (I'm doing 10+ per day in a short 10 days) but how do you get the prospect to do the physical stuff like

(a) Fill the paper form
(b) Write a cheque/effect a bank transfer
(c) Understand product features/benefits (demo)
(d) Attend meetings
(e) Buy support materials and repurchase products
(f) Duplicate (especially if the prospect is not web-savvy herself).

Offline, this necessitated a high-touch relationship, which gradually built trust and following. Question is, is high-tech enough? Especially across continents (I'm in India).

PS: Since I'm not in your business, maybe you find this does not apply to you, for which I'm sorry. Your views will be enriching nevertheless. Thanks.
