Is Microsoft shutting down LinkedIn in China? This came out from an article by Marketplace Business Solutions. Back in 2021, Microsoft acquired LinkedIn, a social network for professionals, and many experts believe that this purchase helped Microsoft increase their earnings per year. With the recent merger of Yahoo and Bing, it is now Google which is the most popular search engine, therefore Microsoft could stand to benefit greatly from the increased usage of LinkedIn by business professionals.
LinkedIn and Microsoft
LinkedIn is one of the best ways to meet other professionals. You can meet up with old colleagues, make new connections, and find a mentor. If you are in the business market, you need to stay up to date on all the latest trends, business plans, and new products. By joining LinkedIn, you can be easily informed of all these and more. This is a must-have for all MLM and network marketing companies.
Microsoft bought LinkedIn
But just because Microsoft bought LinkedIn does not mean that MLM and network marketing are dead. On the contrary, these are just beginning to take shape, and Microsoft is merely starting to tap into the networking market. In fact, the acquisition of LinkedIn was meant to help Microsoft boost its presence in the business networking community, but with Facebook and Twitter being so dominant, that effort appears to be a loser.
Does Microsoft now own the future of MLM and network marketing? That remains to be seen. With the acquisition of LinkedIn, Microsoft may be gearing up to launch a flagship MLM company, or it could simply use the partnership as a way to leverage its existing client and customer base. Either way, they still hold the upper hand in this rivalry.
If MLB Baseball teams are any indicator, the team owners stand to lose the most. MLB Baseball teams such as the Yankees and the Red Sox have long prided themselves in being the powerhouses of the sport, and they have always been willing to spend big bucks in free agency. They have been known to go all-in when it comes to signing free agents. Now, the Yankees and Red Sox will have to find new ways to generate revenue to meet the expectations of their fan bases.
Does this mean that network marketing is dead? There are many network marketers who are still doing well in the sport, and there are some who have yet to establish their name in the business. Those who have made a name for themselves in baseball are finding it more difficult to escape the competitive world of professional baseball. While MLB Baseball teams are struggling to attract players, they are also competing with other professional sports for top MLM talent.
The good news is that there are some bright spots on the horizon for online businesses. Social media sites like Facebook and MySpace are seeing a tremendous surge in traffic, and companies who understand how to use these sites to leverage the attention of those who follow them are seeing exponential growth in their business. This means that even if MLB Baseball fails to find a way to put its players on the field, the business they are trying to operate will thrive. As the popularity grows, so will the business opportunities available through social media.
So what does this mean for those interested in making MLM or network marketing part of their business strategy? Well, it means that you don’t have to completely give up on promoting your product in order to make it successful. You do need to find a way to market to those who have an interest in MLB baseball. Many of these people may not be diehard fans but they do have friends who are, and using social networking sites to do so is a great way to reach into this audience. Once you learn the ropes, you can leverage the popularity of MLB Baseball and get your business name on the airwaves, giving you an advantage over the competition.
