The Four Steps To Network Marketing Success That Most Marketers Neglect.

image

There are four steps to earning money in network marketing/direct sales. These steps are the reasons why people succeed but also the reasons why people do not. The steps are simple but we often make it hard by getting in the way. The steps are inviting, presenting, collecting a decision, and consistency.

Inviting

The invite is exactly what it means. You are inviting prospects to take a look at your business project and getting their feedback on what they saw. Some will respond back and some won’t. The problem is that most marketers are not inviting enough and regularly. This business requires that you talk to people. This a people business like any other business so you need people. Unfortunately, most networkers think posting their links everywhere on social media and spamming is inviting people to looks their business and it’s not. Inviting and imposing are two different things.

Presenting

Presenting is basically using a video, sizzle call or live meeting to expose your prospect to your opportunity, products and services. The objective is to get more people in front of your presentation with the hopes that they could make an educated decision about your offer. Most networkers are not actively presenting their offers. They’re hoping that people inbox them asking for the presentation link.  The more you present, the more you increase your chances for  greater success.

Collecting a decision( follow up)

After you’ve presented your opportunity etc, now it’s time to collect a decision. All you’re looking for after the information was seen is a yes I’m in or no, I’m not. This is the time to adress objections, not beg, chase or convince. Many people don’t collect the decision because they feel like they’re bothering the prospect. They think that if the prospect is serious, they will reach out to them instead. Sometimes that works, most times it doesn’t. You have to actively collect the decision, it’s your opportunity.

Consistency

A lack of Consistency is probably the biggest reason why people don’t get anywhere in this industry. They’ll start something and go really hard in their business for two weeks, fizzle out and then say this doesn’t work. You have to remain consistent even when you don’t yet see the results you want. A lack of consistency is the reason why people have been losing the same 30 pounds for the last five years. It’s normally due to a lack of focus.

Conclusion

In conclusion, these are the four steps to network marketing success that most marketers neglect: inviting, presenting, collecting a decision, consistency. The more you do the things mentioned above, the better you’ll get. Jim Rohn says repetition is the mother of skill. Your sponsor is not responsible for getting the work done. It’s on you, sponsors are there to help. There’s a rumor that says the network marketing industry has a very high failure rate. If that’s true, we now know the reason why. Get comfortable with being uncomfortable and your results and world will change.

Is building a business offline still effective?

network-marketing-offline-image

In today’s post, I want to talk about whether or not building your business offline is still effective. Currently, there is a train of thought in the industry that says old school network marketing is dead. Many online “gurus” say that cold calling is dead or the three feet rule is old news. Nothing could be further from the truth. Those strategies still work and always will as long as people exist. No someone may say “wait a minute, I live in a town of only a thousand people, how could that work for me”? The answer is to use online strategies, work your town and go out of town if that is realistically doable.

In my opinion, attraction marketing doesn’t mean that you completely disregard human interaction. Network marketing is still a face to face business. If you think about it, all of the top seven figure earners in MLM built their business offline first and used attraction marketing to leverage their success and credibility. I’m a fan of online network marketing by all means. I just believe that traditional marketing produces results because we are in the people business. People are online and offline.

I also believe that what you are marketing makes a difference. Some products and services are better promoted offline. For example if you have a physical product that you can give out as a sample  you will have better success. People love the free things so all you have to do is give your product out. Online, people are a little reluctant to give you their personal information. This is because they do not know you and you lack credibility.

In conclusion, building your business online is still effective because people still like to interact with each other. Can you imagine a world where there is no human contact and everything you need must be done online? No matter whether you are doing offline or online marketing, you still have to sell. Unfortunately, many online marketers think you don’t have to sell. That’s simply not true. You are selling business systems, sales funnels. Don’t allow technology to rob you of building real and lasting relationships.

Why people hate network marketing

image

 

There are reasons why people hate network marketing. Most people believe that they have to hang out in shopping malls, passing out flyers. They think they have to beg, chase and convince friends and family to join their business. I can’t forget the dreaded home parties. Now this may work well for some people but unfortunately, it doesn’t work well for most.

The reason why it doesn’t work well for most people is because people have lives. Not to mention, we all have friends and family who are in an MLM business and not making any money. Furthermore, when we learn of the traditional activities that must be done, it doesn’t sound too appealing. This is why people hate network marketing.

In addition, people hate having to sell to strangers. Let alone making a spectacle of themselves with friends and family members. Look, people are tired and burnt out from working their jobs. In some cases, they are working two and three jobs. They have family responsibilities and about 5-6 hours of sleep, not quality sleep either.

They don’t have about five years to hopefully learn and grow to be successful in their network marketing career. It’s not because they don’t want to make the investment, it’s because they need to make things happen faster. While it is true, you are rewarded or punished for the life you lived prior to network marketing, if you knew you would be in the business now, you would have lived a different life!

image

This is why it is important more than ever to automate your business. If you are not leveraging automation and systems, you are likely on your way out of business.

If you are not making sales on autopilot, you don’t have a business, you have another job! The reason why you choose network marketing is to leave your job. You want to live your life on your terms. Instead of taking orders, you want to create them. The best way to make that happen is through automation. If this makes sense to you, CLICK THE LINK to learn who you can earn on automation. Even if you don’t have a business, you can still succeed.

8 MLM Marketing Tips For Success

image

There are 8 MLM Marketing tips that will help you succeed in your network marketing business. It doesn’t matter what company you’re in or what product you’re selling. These tips are confirmed by every top earner in the industry, and will work for you. So here we go.

Target Market

You must be crystal clear about who your target market is. If you’re selling jewelry, it is highly unlikely that your target audience is looking to save money on energy. You must be crystal clear about who your target market is. There’s an ole saying that goes if you target everyone, you’ll hit no one. Everyone is not a good fit for your business and every person is not a prospect.

Chasing friends and family

We’ve all been guilty of this common mistake. Fortunately, I’ve had success with getting some friends and family to support me in business. However, I know from dealing with other siblings and relatives who said no, that the method of chasing them doesn’t work. Most family and friends want to see you make a million dollars before they join since you  them that you were going to make seven figures in a year. If they do get started, they expect to do nothing. You’re better off chasing a rabbit and catching it than chasing friends and family members and getting them to join.

Establish your why 

Everyday you need to remind yourself of your why. This is especially true when things are going well in business. You will have times in your business where no one is not signing up. So you need to have a strong why and realize that your why will bring you closer to your wishes. Most people don’t have a strong why. They why is why try it for now and see how it goes. If it doesn’t work, I’ll ask why can’t I have my money back? So their why turns into a why bother. Establish your why and be firm with it.

Personal development

A lack in personal development is the reason why people don’t stand on their why. Everyday we should be reading something that will keep us strong and motivated. The reason people quit is because they don’t have the mindset of a winner. A winner sees himself winning even though things in his life may appear that he’s losing. You must walk by faith not just spiritually, but mentally in regards to business. Your daily actions must support your faith. In actuality, personal development is derived from spiritual development. Develop your business mind with personal development and mindset training. Youtube, barnes and nobles is filled is relevant material that will assist you in this area.

Stay consistent

image

It’s not what you do once that gets you the prize. It’s what you continue to do day in and  day out. You must consistently expose people to your offers. Whether you choose to market or prospect, you must have some kind of daily action step. Unfortunately, most people take action a few times then stop for a longer period of time. Be consistent and persistent until you get what’s yours!

Maintain your focus

When I was with the Department of Corrections, I had a weapons instructor who used to always tell us to maintain your focus and discipline. He told us this because the  duties of a CO are very demanding. As a network marketer, you must maintain your focus. Meaning, have tunnel vision like focus. Don’t spread yourself thin trying to master every marketing strategy. If you are just starting out, use one paid and one free strategy. Otherwise, you will be a jack of all trades but a master at none. Maintain your focus.

Social media 

Social media should be included in your daily business activities. Network marketing is about building networks of relations. You want to surround yourself with people of like mind. As you do this, over time, some relations will turn to business partnerships. Social media is also a great place to build your brand. The more you build your brand, the more authorized you become. Most successful entrepreneurs have their space on social media.

Provide value 

To gain the attention of your prospect, you must provide value. This is true if you want to stand out. Your company link is no longer enough, especially if you are building online. The best network marketers create content. They know that many people  have struggles so they address those concerns. Providing value is about providing good content. Content is anything that adds value to the reader’s life.

In conclusion

These eight MLM marketing tips will assist you in your business. Success in MLM requires a bit of ingenuity. Today’s network marketer must be educated and unique. You are not selling your products, you are selling yourself. Our profession is a business, not a scheme or a thing.  Respect this business, and the business will respect you.

Why marketing yourself is so important

image

One of your first priorities as a home business owner is to develop yourself as a leader. As you develop yourself as a leader, you will begin to market yourself as leader. It is important to understand that people don’t join businesses, they join people. If you look at any top earner online, you will notice that they do not promote their opportunity on the front line. They promote their own content that they created or another leader’s content.

The market place is crowded.

A reason why marketing yourself is so important is because the marketplace is over crowded. Networkers are competing for the attention of the prospect to get him or her into their organization. If you can show why a prospect should join you and not the next guy, you’ll have a greater chance at recruiting that prospect. Of course the prospect has the final say so as to whom he or she will join. You need a way to stand out from the crowd of network marketers who are not giving this any thought. This is very important to consider especially if you are building your business online.

Your company has been seen before but not you.

Every network marketing company has been seen before. It doesn’t matter what you’re promoting. Even if you are promoting an attraction marketing business, it’s been seen before. This is because everyone has the same funnels. However, you haven’t been seen and that’s what make you unique. You personality and professional charm will draw people to you. In addition to your compassion and servant leadership ability. That’s what people want.

Today’s network marketing has leveraged the internet.

More people are getting hip to realizing that in order to succeed online, it’s going to take more than just a link. Many business owners know that a blog and video are powerful tools that can build authority and relationships with prospects. They understand that they can achieve this better than not having anything at all. This is especially true unless they built their business offline.

In conclusion, these are some of the reasons why marketing yourself is so important. You want to market yourself in such a way that will leave an impression on a person you are dealing with, to point that he or she MUST do business with you.

If you want to learn how to market yourself online, you need to get this resource.

Do you need a marketing budget to succeed in your online business?

image

A question people have, is do you need a marketing budget to succeed in an online business. Well, the answer to that question is no. I’ll explain why. The reason why you do not need a marketing budget is because of social media. All over the Internet, people are making hundreds of thousands of dollars using free strategies on the Internet. All you need to do is pick a platform that you want to build on and master it. The key is to consistently provide value to your target market.

Video

Video is hot right now and more and more people are realizing the power of making videos. Making videos will help you to grow as an entrepreneur as you provide valuable content to your viewers. Best of all, you can record and share your videos for free. No budget required.

Blogging

Even though everyone and their mom has a blog, blogging is still a good choice. Blogging just like video, can be done without any marketing budget. You can provide ideas and solutions that helps your reader. Blogging is a great way to draw people to you so they can learn more of what you do. Your blog should be packed with content. You can collect leads and recruit people off of your blog!

Relationships

The best of them all, is relationships. The reason I say the best is because connecting with people is what counts. At the end of the day, the only thing that matters is how many people did you connect with. Building relations cost you nothing especially on Facebook. Whether your business is online or not, you are in the people business. Relationships count.

MLM Marketing Training

MLM marketing training is important for your network marketing business. The reason why is because the training will give you information that will assist you to get results in your business. One of the common complaints in home business is that I did everything my sponsor told me to do, I made a list of friends and family, I went to the malls and coffee shops. I did cold calling, gave out flyers and  I’m still not getting sales. This causes people to give up and believe that there is some special tip that is not disclosed to the network marketing industry.

Doing the above things still work but they do not work for everyone because our schedules and life vary from person to person. Network marketing is a business that either  punishes or rewards you for the career you had prior to network marketing. One of the reasons why some people advance quickly through the ranks is because they have a supportive warm market and business connections in their prior careers. They happen to be people of influence in many cases. Look at it like this, a person who is a director or manager in the corporate setting may have a rolodex of 1000 contacts. Because he is influential, he can make a phone call and get people to join him. In corporate America, people are making connections all day to advance their careers and companies. The average person doesn’t have those connections that’s why he or she is frustrated. For this reason, MLM marketing training is necessary to succeed in today’s network marketing era.

Another reason why you need marketing training is because a million people are promoting the same business program that you are marketing. Furthermore, there are millions more marketing something else. You are competing for the attention of your prospects along with other marketers. Why should they join you and not someone else?  Many networkers cannot answer that question so they continue to spam and pitch their business hoping to get someone to join them. You have to offer your prospect something that another marketer cannot. So because most network marketers have nothing else to offer besides a join me link, they continue to struggle. All of that can be changed with some marketing training.

In conclusion, we all need marketing training. We must be willing to learn and grow in order to succeed in MLM. This business is about building relationships. One of the best ways to build a relationship is to be a person of value and offer something for free. Your net worth is connected to your network. Your success is dependent on your personal development training and marketing training.
