8 MLM Marketing Tips For Success

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

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.

Two reasons why people are not successful in MLM

It is said that approximately 97% of people who are in a network marketing or MLM company do not succeed. The question I have is why are not more people succeeding in network marketing? If people are succeeding, that means anyone can succeed. Then I looked at the business habits that the individuals who are successful have, and the habits that unsuccessful people have.

There was a HUGE difference. The successful ones were reading books, exercising, creating content and connecting with 10plus people per day.  Then I looked at the habits of the unsuccessful. They did no reading, didn’t create any content or give away anything of value. Rarely, did the unsuccessful connect with people. They worked their businesses when they felt like it. Nor did they attend conferences or training calls.

I want to address two of the popular reasons why people are unsuccessful and hopefully get people to see what they need to work on.

Starting and stopping

when most people get started in MLM, they tell everyone they know about this great opportunity they found. They’re reading the books that their sponsor recommended, listen to training calls and save some money to attend live events. After hearing no repeatedly and getting no shows, slowly network marketers become lazy and complacent with their business. Too much rejection and adversity causes them to stop working. So they take a break and that break turns into quitting.

Starting and stopping doesn’t build momentum. It actually stops your growth personally and professionally. There is no way to achieve any goal by starting and stopping. In addition to that, it becomes a habit. Starting and stopping leads to network marketers to believe that this business doesn’t work especially after they “tried”working the business but nothing is working.

Have nothing to offer

Another reason why people are unsuccessful is because they have nothing to offer. Most reps only have a company link as every other rep and nothing more. You have to give people a reason to join you. A link is not enough. In order to successful in network marketing, especially online, you need to have something to offer. Some kind of training on how to build your business on Facebook for example, is very value. If you don’t have a training of your own, you can leverage someone else’s training.

When you have training material that shows how to build a business, prospects are going to say this guy knows what he’s talking about, and will more likely join you because you gave them ideas on how to build their business. Keep in mind that the training that you offer must be different than the training that your company offers.

In addition to that, I am giving away a BONUS course. It’s a seven day home business mastery course that will put you in the winner’s circle right now.

Why talking to most friends and family about network marketing doesn’t work

oh no not you again image

When you first get started in network marketing, you get excited about your company. You think you hit the lottery. You probably met some sponsor who promised you the moon. You were then told to make a list of customers and team builders. This list is comprised of family, friends and associates. The list is also known as your warm market. I have mentioned the following reasons why talking to most friends and family, about network marketing doesn’t work.

Your sponsor told you to ask them “the questions”, give them samples and get them to a meeting. All of which work depending on the kind of influence you have. The problem is that most people have no influence and/or affluence. Which partly explains why people quit so soon. A lack of influence is one of the reasons why talking to friends and family about network marketing doesn’t work. When you have influence, people will listen more to what you say. So if you lack influence, talking to friends and family about your network marketing business probably won’t work. You must build in influence by branding yourself and getting exposure.

Another reason why talking to most friends and family doesn’t work is because they “tried one of those things and it didn’t work”. Network marketing is a business that requires work. When you join an MLM, you have to work your business consistently. Nothing magically happens overnight. Your results will always depend on what you are doing.

A third reason is because they do not understand the concept of MLM. Network marketing is an organization of people who use and retail high quality products offered through their company. In addition, they get paid for building an organization of people who do the same. This is the basic concept of MLM. No overhead, low expenses and exponential potential to create wealth.

A fourth reason is due to a negative frame of reference. Sadly, some of the most negative people are the ones in your household. While you are seeking change, they want to remain the same. Most family and friends have the crabs in the barrel mentality. As you try to climb your way up out of the barrel, another crab tries to pull you down. They make such statement such as “you can’t do that” and “go get a real job”. These are very discouraging words to hear from someone you love. Nevertheless, we move forward regardless.

In conclusion, these are some of the reasons why talking to most friends and family about network marketing doesn’t work. Obviously, there are net workers who sponsor their loved ones into their business with no problem. I believe you should prospect your immediate people. Usually, siblings and companions will join when you start making money. I feel that the core of the problem is their unbelief. Relatives do not believe that success is possible with MLM. The ole saying goes: some will, some won’t, so what, someone else is waiting. Keep building.

Much Success
