The Difference between Network Marketing and Internet Marketing

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!

There are many people who are under the impression that the Internet space, though vaster than imaginable, is all the same.  Tell them that there is something known as Internet marketing and there is something else known as network marketing and the two are not the same will be news to them.  We can assure them that the two have different methodologies and approaches to marketing.  The main difference is that in Internet marketing, nothing is done away from your computer, whereas in network marketing, besides using computers, many things can be done offline to promote your business.

Internet marketing is the selling of services and products using  the Internet. You can promote your products and services and also your affiliates’ domains and those of Joint Venture partners, if there are any. You want to always grow a list of email subscribers because one of the main promotional avenues is sending emails. This sending of emails has to be done with care. Too many of them could end up in the trash bin without being read. Relationships are created in the course of sales, but there is no team or group that is created to sell the products.

This viral marketing can use video clips, pointed advertisements, or eBooks to make the people linger long enough on the page and kindle their interest in the product or service. A member who makes a sale from anywhere in the world gets a commission.

There is no social interaction aspect to the marketing. Email is your main mode of contact, but you may also resort to sending newsletters that can have a professional look and finesse and impress the recipients

Therein lies the main difference. Network marketing is self-explanatory. You need to create a network of sales distributors who will be engaged in marketing  the company’s products. It is primarily a system of networks that have been perfected by MLM companies. A business opportunity is offered to whoever is interested in the website promoted by you. Anyone who is interested in earning some extra money can join in and start as a distributor or affiliate; thus a group of people is created and they all work towards one goal – the sale of  the MLM  product and they themselves make it a point of bringing in more sales people under their name.

Network marketers can make use of online and offline techniques to build their team. Phone calls on the Internet using facilities like Skype is possible now, but may not be as effective as traditional phones using landlines or cellular phones. The dial the number and speak routine cannot be employed here.  However, Skype will enhance your global business as you have a chance to meet people all over the world, no matter the time zone. Sizzle calls, meetup groups, attractive promotional postcards by snail mail are examples of offline marketing techniques.  You have many choices to figure out the best method for growing your business.

Till the next time…Live on purpose & make it happen

Wishing you pro$perity,

Internet Marketing – What is it? Can you do it?

Any method that helps you make money out of the Internet by publicizing a product for sale is Internet marketing.

It is not necessary that the product be yours. Network marketing is a form of Internet Marketing. Network Marketing is a method of marketing where companies use independent representatives to reach potential customers with traditional online and offline marketing methods. Becoming an affiliate for some website that is selling a product is another way to do this. Here you are not selling your own product, but you are publicizing it on the Internet all the same. That is why it fits within the definition of Internet marketing.

Anybody and everybody that has a computer with a reliable Internet connection can enter into Internet marketing. There’s a lot more to be learned and understood before you make the start in this grand opportunity.

You need to have a website or a blog. That’s an absolute must. This is nothing short of an office space. It could be your virtual corporate office. This is what people who don’t know you will see and build an impression about yourself.

It is imperative to partner with an Internet Success Coach. A coach can reduce your learning experience by 18 -24 months assuming that you are coachable and teachable.


The biggest advantage is that this is the best way to start a business of your own.

 On the Internet, you don’t need much capital at all. You can set up a business for free and then keep it running through profits that you earn.

Anyone can get into Internet marketing – stay at home mom and dads, teenagers, retirees, disabled people, people who don’t have a home of their own, people who don’t have social security and even able-bodied working men and women who want to make extra income. The trend is shifting toward the Internet anyway. People have become very apprehensive about their offline jobs due to the recession and there has suddenly been a spurt in the number of people joining the Internet “buzz”.

Also consider the tax deductible factor. When you use a portion of your home for your home business that becomes a part of your deductibles. The same applies to the computer that you use.  

The convenience is an excellent factor as well. You don’t have to travel anywhere. You can work in your PJ’s or boxers; you don’t have to physically impress the people you are dealing with. Some people feel that they are freer when they are chatting online than they are when they are speaking face-to-face.

There is no limit to what you can earn working online. Two to five years of hard work and you can change your financial course forever.


Scam operators. Yes, there are scammers. You have to be honest; you have to make sure that you are dealing with people in the right way. Though there is always a bit of skepticism connected with any online dealing, if you are honest, you will make it through.

You have now all the ingredients you would need for starting your Internet marketing venture. But to go ahead, you will need more knowledge, more information. This is the reason why you should keep reading great material and keep improving your knowledge bank.  Then you must take action.
