Sometimes people say to me - why do I need a blog? I'm a network marketer and I have a company website already, what is a blog going to do for me?

Great question and there are so many reasons why a blog can set you apart tremendously as a marketer, a go-to resource, and a leader in your company/business.

While many of us are also busy on Facebook creating notes, shooting YouTube videos and more, a blog is really the center piece of all of your marketing efforts. This is the place you want to bring people back to in order to really do business.

Social Media was not created for advertising, and yet we know business goes on there, and certainly leads and prospects are generated there. So, how do we move people into business mode? Through your blog, where you showcase yourself and your commitment to your business.

When done right, it is a natural extension of your offline activities and a great way to attract and keep the perfect audience for you and your business!
