On the one hand, South Africa is smaller, meaning that it is easier to reach market saturation at some point or another. Additionally, there are also only so many decent network marketing programs out there to join – the rest is rubbish.
To make things worse, the local web is lagging behind the rest of the world as far as virtual infrastructure goes – not many busy forums, not many article directories, etc.
It would seem as if any online venture starting out here would be at a disadvantage…
You see, the fact that we live in a smaller country also means there is less competition.
The fact that the web is relatively poorly evolved means that other people are backing off – while there are actually some great entrances into the market.
The fact that there are less decent programs to choose from means that you are less likely to lose prospects to another program.
And we have two great tools: One is Facebook. With around four and a half MILLION local users at the time of (this) writing, it provides a huge opportunity.
The other is the fact that it is easier to rank locally with a local website (meaning a .co.za domain) – so the lack of evolution on the local web can be to your advantage.
While other people are backing off from using the internet to do local network marketing here in South Africa, they are leaving the door wide open for you to walk in and stake your claim.
