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.

Network Marketing IS The Dream

dream images 1

Network marketing is a business model that has been around for decades. It’s a business for people who like helping other people. The business model offers top notch products to consumers around the world, who have a desire to improve the quality of their lives. Examples of these products are health and wellness, financial services, travel services etc. Network marketing is a solution for individuals looking for an alternative to the traditional 9 to 5.

There are uneducated people who call network marketing a pyramid scheme. To be perfectly clear, a pyramid scheme is when money is changing hands but there is no legitimate product being moved or service fulfilled. These schemes are partly what gives network marketing a bad rap. Unethical programs like these pollute our industry giving people a negative outlook on our profession.

The other part that gives network marketing a poor image is bad business people. Let’s be honest, there are bad people in every industry so network marketing is no exception. One must associate him or herself with the good people and be held personally accountable for their own success.

Some people feel that the type of product you have makes the difference in network marketing. I believe that it’s not so much about the product nor has it ever been. It’s about the dream, plain and simple. It’s also about people since people are the ones with money. Personally speaking, it’s about the dream. I dream of the people I can help effectively and the things I can do politically.

Network marketing has made it possible for the average person who doesn’t have much money to dream again. Most people have given up on their dreams. The American dream of owning a home and retiring in style is becoming an American nightmare. I see many people working past their retirement age and are afraid that they STILL will not be able to retire. Yet, the folks who are retired now have to go out and find another job just to supplement their retirement incomes. What kind of retirement is that? I believe that corporate America and the public sector are the enemies of the poor and the middle class because most well paying jobs that existed decades ago, are now in India and china. Far easterners are being paid less than half of what Americans use to earn.

In conclusion, when people wake up and join network marketing, they are choosing freedom over security which by the way, doesn’t exist anymore. The home business industry is the last chance for the common man who wants to take his financial life back from the dictatorship of corporate America and the public sector. Choose freedom or choose slavery by default. Network marketing is the dream that can take you from where you are now to where you want to be in the future.

YOU become Your Own Up Line

In network marketing, you hear many stories from distributors of how their up line sponsor got them into the business and a few months later, disappeared. This is perhaps one of the reasons why people discredit our profession and become skeptical about money making or online business opportunities. Personally speaking, I had a sponsor sign me up from a previous MLM company and he disappeared on me also so I can relate. People get into this business for different reasons. By the same token, people leave the business for different reasons.

I feel that your success in anything in life, is your responsibility not someone else. So for that reason, you have to become your own up line or your own leader. The home based business industry is a legitimate field of work. It works if you work. Perhaps that’s the problem. You won’t work because you don’t have the skill set. Furthermore, you will not commit to developing the skills that are necessary to pay the bills. In which case you can blame no one except yourself. How do you like that? When you refuse to develop the skills, you refuse to develop your paycheck. When you refuse to develop your paycheck, someone else like an employer will do that for you.

Here are some tips to becoming your own up line:

1. Read books on how network marketing is done. Go to www.amazon.com.

2. Join online business forums that focus on network marketing and ask questions.

3. Join networking groups that support the industry and network with others of the same mindset.

4. Watch you tube videos on prospecting and marketing.

5. Get rid of the lottery mentality. No one gets rich overnight. You have to pay your dues.

6. Go to http://www.risemovie.com and watch the free trailer on network marketing.

7. Last but not least, join me in business and I will assist you in getting the job done so long as you are willing to learn and take action.

 

In conclusion, network marketing is the greatest profession in the world. You have the opportunity to meet people from all walks of life. You get to use the power of leverage and create an income that is residual. So what if your up line leaves you. In every line of work, you will find irresponsible people. Your job is to not be one of the them. Will you continue to complain about the lack of up line support or will you become your own support? Seek out the help you desire. Just know that work is involved. Do not be discouraged and do not quit. If you quit, you will only be quitting on yourself.

7 Reasons Why You Should Join Network Marketing

seven reasons why you should join images

Here I list 7 reasons why you should join network marketing. You are probably familiar with some of the reasons however, the way these ideas are presented may be new to you.

1. No Job security.

Job security is becoming obsolete in America. Thousands of people are losing their jobs every year. Our manufacturing base which was the engine of the economic world is rapidly shrinking and the number of people applying for public assistance is increasing. So how can there be job security when there are less secure jobs? Network marketing is a business model of freedom. There are no serious representatives who seek job security. We want financial independence.

2. The politicians can’t and won’t help you in the job world.

If politicians were really in office to help us, none of our American jobs would be in other countries. No offense to other nations but Americans need jobs too. What did the politicians do to help Joe average from losing his home or retirement money in 2008? Laws are being passed and decisions are made that undermine the interest and prosperity of the middle class and most of these politicians are in on it. I’m not saying all politicians are bad but the ones who are more popular have not accomplished much as far as I’m concerned. Home business owners do not seek assistance from politicians. Our motto is if it’s going to be, it’s up to me.

3. Pensions, 401ks, etc will disappear.

There is talk about nationalizing your retirement plans. How does that make you feel? Money that you worked hard for, for many years is going to lumped together with someone else’s account. Furthermore, social security is a cash grab and will also disappear. In my opinion, nationalization leads to confiscation. So in essence, your pension and other paper investments are no longer yours once nationalization takes place. You do not control your paper investments, wall street does. With network marketing, you keep what you earn, and what you earn, you control.

4. No income ceiling.

In network Marketing, you determine how much money you want to make not someone else. You can earn as much as top CEOs earn within a year. You get paid for results, not time. There is no need to ask anyone for a raise or an increase. I work with a guy who earns a high five figure salary per month and completed training with people who earn six figure per month salaries. I am thoroughly convinced that when it comes to making money sky is the limit.

5. You get to work with who you want.

Working with difficult people is not impossible. In this profession, you do get to choose your business partners however, working with difficult people is not always avoidable. A common statement that prospects have is “you need people to join your business and I don’t want a business like that”. The reality is that you need people for everything not just a business. Besides, people are the only ones who have money. So yes, unlike a job, you do get to work with people of your liking, just know that the person you like may turn into one that you don’t like as much.

6. No boss.

What more can I say? In network Marketing, you do not have bosses. You have coaches. Their role is not to make your life a living hell. Their responsibility is to help you make money. How many bosses do you know want to help you make money?

7. Time.

Having a home business allows you to control your time whereas a job controls your time for you. You report to work and perform the duties and hours assigned. As a home business professional, you make your own schedule and are not bound to a time clock.

In closing, there are many reasons why you should join a network marketing organization. Do not let fear or any pre-conceived ideas stop you from moving forward. Educate yourself on the industry by reading books and information from the direct selling association. Do not listen to people who failed. Listen to people who succeeded. The only limits are the ones you put on your mind.

P.S. Look what’s happening in Greece. It’s going to happen everywhere. Nation after nation is experiencing financial default. We in the US, have well over 18 trillion dollars in debt! That’s not even counting the unfunded liabilities which are over 24o trillion dollars! Who do you think is going to pay for it? Certainly not the banks or corporations who are responsible for this mess. We and our children are going to pay for it. I hope you realize how serious the trouble we are in. You MUST be personally responsible for your own financial affairs. turning money over to a financial institution is not responsible. It is being careless and besides that, you are not in control it. This article is not written to scare you. It is written to educate you. You can go do your own research as it is public information.

Sell YOU Not Your Opportunity

When we first get started in network marketing, we are desperate to make a sale. We tell everyone we know how great our products and services are as well as we should. Networking is derived from the word network and marketing comes from the word market. So obviously, you are marketing your network which is comprised of individuals within your company that provide goods and services to consumers.

We live in a world of unlimited opportunities that are created to give us time and financial freedom that a job could never provide. The issue that comes into play is when we become so desperate that we spam and pitch our business everywhere and to everyone without realizing how damaging that is to our individual businesses and profession.

When we send unsolicited information to people, it turns them off to our business opportunity because they never asked for it. People are already pre-programmed with a skeptical frame of reference especially when it comes to network marketing because they tried it before and they didn’t become a millionaire over night. I feel that it is wiser and more professional to market yourself not your opportunity because people really don’t care about your products. When a prospect joins your business, they are not joining your business per se, they are joining you. Based on their positive perception of you, they will sign up as a distributor. Prospective candidates are mainly concerned about whether or not you can help them make money. They want to know that you are not going to leave them hanging to do the business all by themselves.

When you sell yourself and not your opportunity, you position yourself as a leader. That’s what leaders do. You have to get in position first. Once you do that, your mind begins to work on the action steps that are needed to take you from where you are now to where you want to be in the future. Selling yourself requires that you get out of your comfort zone and in front of people via some type of platform whether online or offline.

In conclusion, it is time that we become resourceful sponsors who provide valuable content to our business associates. In doing this, they will become successful business owners. If we are willing to do what it takes, we and our fellow business partners will have what other people wish.

Job Security Or Financial Independence?

227

When you were a teenager, you were told to go to school to get a safe and secure job. You were told that the only way to make something of yourself was to get a bachelor’s degree then return to school to get a master’s degree in order to make your security a sure thing. That’s what your parents did so that’s what you should do. After all, it’s the American way. Is their really a such thing as a safe and secure job? I doubt it because I see more layoffs of people from secured jobs than the creation of secured jobs. Take a look at the facts below:

-Target in January announced it was taking out 1,175 jobs, including 465 layoffs (source: USA today).

-Microsoft announced planned headcount reduction of up to 18,000! (source: USA today).

-Hewlett-Packard told investors that it plans to cut an additional 11,000 to 16,000 jobs (source USA today).

-Coca cola plans to cut 1,000-2,000 jobs globally in the coming weeks (source: CNBC).

-BP oil will cut thousands of jobs across its global oil and gas business by the end of next year in a $1 billion restructuring program-whatever the heck that means (source: REUTERS).

-3,700 job cuts this fall will hit 11 percent of sprint employees company wide (source: Kansas City Star).

Wait! I can hear many of you saying, I work for the city, state, federal government sector. We have strong unions! Well guess what? The federal, state and city governments are broke. The federal government has been broke since around 1933. If that was not so then why do we need to keep raising the debt ceiling? Our gross domestic product or GDP is about 14 trillion dollars while our debt is about 18 trillion dollars not including the unfunded liabilities such as social security, Medicaid and Medicare total over 100 trillion. Recovery? What recovery? In addition, the unions collective bargaining power is being reduced by lobbyists. Furthermore, the city, state and federal sectors are redlining it. The city of Detroit is the test model along with Sacramento, California. To sum this part up, The corporations and banks are primarily funding the public sector so guess who really runs the show? Can you also guess who funds the NYPD? It’s not city revenues, it’s JP Morgan.

Job security is an obsolete ideal because good paying jobs are shipped overseas. The sad part is that parents continue to instill the same failing belief system into our children hoping that things work out. I feel that as long as we continue to place our confidence into a broken system we will continue to be deceived.

Deception is big business. We bought into it hook, line and sinker. It is time that people wake up and realize that the program of success that we were fed was nothing but a recipe for failure. Why would people choose job security when they can choose financial independence? The problem is that most people think that job security is financial independence because they went to school, have a job and earn their own money. Financial independence is the road less traveled because personal accountability is necessary. Even though we’re adults, we cling to job security as a baby clings to a bottle because many of us not all, are possibly too immature to care for our own financial affairs. Worse yet, we refuse to learn.

In conclusion, financial independence is way much better than job security because your income is not dictated by an employer. It is dictated by you. You control your time, therefore you control your life.

The Most Unhappiest People Work At A Job

Do you ever notice how when Friday comes around, people get excited for the weekend and a sign of relief crosses their face? Then when Monday morning arrives, they look unhappy and frustrated? On the highway, they honk their horns and yell at each other. On public transportation, they push and shove one another because they’re running late for work. Based on my experience, I believe that the people who are the most unhappiest, are the ones who work at a job. I say this because people don’t like the daily 9-5 hustle of getting up to go to a job that they hate and doing the same thing repetitively. Obviously, there are employees who enjoy what they do for a living and that’s fine. For most people, going to a job to work for a salary that already isn’t enough is painful.

There is nothing right or wrong with working a job but there is something wrong when you are unhappy at a job. Many people are a heart attack away from dropping dead at work. It is because the stress levels at some occupations are exceedingly high along with other personal factors. Folks not only hate their jobs, they hate the money they make, their annoying bosses and co-workers yet, they stay at those jobs for years.

A lot of the problems at home arise from parents spending too much time at work and not enough time at home with their children. This contributes to unhappiness because a parent needs and wants to be at home instead of work. I’m a parent also and I understand that you have to do what you have to do. However, there are opportunities that can improve your financial life for ever if you are open to them.

How can you be your own man or woman when someone tells you what time to come to work and when you can go home? On a side note, the advice of going to school to get a safe and secure job is bad advice. Millions of men and women have done that and are not happy because they are now unemployed or underemployed. It is heart breaking to work hard all week to see your paycheck disappear in one day. There is a better way though. Thank you for reading.
