(I want to know what you think in the comments below…and guys, I especially want to hear from you! Are you seeing what I’m seeing as well? Now’s the time to speak your mind!)
When I stop to think about the internet network marketing leaders more of the men, like Mike Dillard, Tim Erway, Ty Tribble come to my mind. Of course there is the awesome Ann Sieg, who was one of my Top 5 Clever Marketers of 2010, but in my perception, the leaders in the internet marketing and network marketing industries men seem to out rank women at the top.
Are the Girls Gaining Ground in Internet Network Marketing?
But, I think that’s changing. Looking at leading internet network marketing women like Katie Freiling, Kimberly Castleberry, Amanda-Marie, I see the feminine marketing qualities quickly taking a hold of the industry. I’m not an expert, of course, but I’m definitely seeing something of power, in the marketing of women online, and I’m believing it’s because of a sisterhood that is forming from the foundational feminine belief that “We are better together.”
A perfect example of this “sisterhood” is the invitation I received to do a training for Golda Smith. Golda is an internet network marketer in New York City, whom I met a couple of months ago online. She does a fantastic training every week that she calls her M.O.D.E.L. Training. M.O.D.E.L. stands for: Mothers Online Developing Entrepreneurs and Leaders and Golda’s group is made up of WAHMs and Mompreneurs.
My training, which was geared toward the internet network marketing girls on Golda’s list, covered three areas. I’m excited to share the first part with you here. “Embracing our feminine qualities that give us an edge in our marketing”
I will be sharing the other two parts of the training in future blog posts:
- Marketing Like a G.I.R.L.
- 4 Things that Hold WAHMs and Mompreneurs Back in Our Businesses.
Girl Power: A Growing Opportunity for WAHMs and Mompreneurs Building Internet Network Marketing Businesses
Twice as many women are starting businesses than men are right now. Online, women are hanging out in social media 30% more than men do, and the DSA states that 82% of direct sales and network marketing businesses are owned by women!
And with the growing trend of people building their network marketing and direct sales businesses on the internet, it’s not a surprise that women are rocking it in the internet marketing world for a couple of reasons. We are fantastic collaborators and who do we collaborate with mostly? Women. And we are nurturers by nature, and because we are supporting each other in growing our individual businesses, we are leveraging each others strengths in order to succeed.
Plus, I believe our message, is standing out on the internet, as warm, caring, and refreshing compared to all the hyped up “killer” marketing strategies that the industry has been hearing from the men all these years.
Here’s the first part of the MODEL training I did with Golda. Come back tomorrow for the WAHMs and Mompreneurs Marketing Training Part 2: Marketing Like A GIRL!M.O.D.E.L. Training: Internet Network Marketing with the Girl Power Advantage
Again…I want to hear what you think, guys and gals, about women’s power in the internet network marketing industry. Are the girls gaining power in the industry, or is this mompreneur suffering from 2:00 am, marketing idea induced, sleep deprivation? LOL
