# 1 P – Prospects
The first "p" relevant to MLM marketing stands for "prospects." In general, internet marketing typically creates sales leads that could facilitate a one-time sale of products or services, but MLM marketing has a different goal. In this business, you should pursue for prospects with what to share your business opportunity. Thus, your first MLM marketing goal should be to create as many business prospects as possible.
# 2 P – Profits
The next "p" in MLM marketing stands for "profits." One benefit of online marketing is that any sales you have are immediate, which can help pay for advertising, or pay you back for any money spent out of pocket for online marketing. Typically the only way to make money from an investment in MLM marketing is to use a "funded proposal." This is a way to market a resource, tool or report that creates money for you when people buy it, while at the same time developing a list of prospects to whom you can promote your MLM business. If you do not make money while promoting your MLM opportunity, you will always run out of money for advertising and only be able to utilize the free marketing resources found on the internet.
# 3 P – Personal Sign Ups
The last "p" regarding MLM marketing is short for "personal sign ups." Obviously in any MLM business you need people interested in your business to sign up, leaving a way to contact them in the future. Therefore, MLM marketing includes more than just getting some people to go to your site. You need to follow up with any prospects, basically selling the idea of them signing up under you. To do this, you need to present your opportunity to them, making the business seem too attractive to pass up. Only once you have people signed up under you have achieved some semblance of success in this business.
MLM marketing is typically more complex than regular internet marketing, as the goals are slightly different. However, this does not mean that you can not take some aspects of basic internet marketing to use in MLM marketing. Understanding the three "p's" described will help you learn how to market MLM online.
