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.

Success is found in consistency.

There are reasons why people quit. Some of those reasons are fear, unbelief, adversity and others. What usually happens is people will watch a video or read a blog of a guy stating that he got 25 sign ups in three days or something.

When people see this, they try it for a few days. As soon as they do not get identical results, they give up and quit. What folks don’t understand is that there was a process of consistent work that was implemented day in and day out, to get those kind of results.

No one starts out a six figure earner. You must consistently promote and market YOURSELF. Notice I didn’t say opportunity. You must market yourself.

A lack of consistency contributes to a person quitting and calling this industry a scam. Consistency is not talked about enough. You don’t start something for a month, then stop, thinking any day you’re gonna hit the lottery.

We have to get rid of this lotto mentality when it comes to network marketing. Rome wasn’t built over night and neither will your business. You can get uncommon results but you have to understand that uncommon results come from uncommon actions.

You have to be able to account for your daily income producing activities period. The truth of the matter is that most people are not reading anything to get better. They are not watching material to learn how to build their business. They don’t listen to training calls or attend conference events. Moreover, they do not connect with people. No wonder why they are not getting the results they want.

This business is called network marketing. Most people leave the work part out of it. There is a work involved and that work must be done consistently.

What Stop Most People From Taking Action?

image

What stops most people from taking action? There are many reasons why most people don’t take action. I will go over some common reasons, or excuses. A reason why people do not take action is because of fear. Fear is the thief of your dreams. Many people fear what may not even happen. In some cases, fear is condition that results from a lack of confidence or self esteem. It’s a paralyzer. Fear stops people from succeeding and reaching their highest potential. We have fear but we can’t let it stop us.

Another reason that stops people from taking action is their own self limiting beliefs. You have to believe that you can accomplish any goal. Your actions dictate what you believe consciously or subconsciously. No matter what excuses we give, the only ones we are fooling is ourselves. Believe you can make a difference and take action.

image

A third reason why most people don’t take action is because of the hard work that’s required. After working forty to sixty hours a week, who wants to work hard building a business? People are conditioned to work at a job, not hard for themselves. Working hard for yourself is challenging because it requires mental energy to remain persistent and consistent. When you lack mental energy, it’s difficult to work hard. Nevertheless, people make excuses to avoid working hard.

image

In conclusion, these are some reasons why most people do not take action. If anything good is worth having, it’s worth working for. Some folks are too concerned of what friends and family will think of them. Because of this, they do not take action. The difference between your dream and reality is your action.

When Your Passion Consumes You

image

We all have a passion for something. It could be speaking, writing or building. The definition of passion is a strong or uncontrollable emotion. There is probably something exciting in your life that you enjoy, which makes you feel this way. You think about it day and night. You dream about bringing that thing to fruition. When you have conversations with people, you can’t help but to bring it up. This is what happens when you have a passion that consumes you.

In St.John 2:17, the bible reads, and his disciples remembered that it is written the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up. What is the zeal that is eating you up? What is that zeal that makes people think you’re crazy. Furthermore, what is the zeal that makes you think you’re crazy? This is what happens when your passion consumes you.

image

I don’t want to be a passionless individual. For me, there has got to be something that gets me out of bed in the morning. There has got to be something that makes me say yes, I’m alive!! I’m afraid that many people have no zeal. They have no passion, they have no fire. These folks drift aimlessly through life. Some of them are mad at the world because they didn’t make anything out of themselves.

When you have a passion that consumes you, you’ll walk with a new walk. You’ll talk a new talk and you’ll have a new found perspective on life. Welcome to the new you. When people have a passion so intense, they don’t worry what others are doing. They are focused on their goals and the task at hand. They have no time to play games, there is much work to do.

image

In conclusion, when your passion consumes you, your whole demeanor will change. What you took for granted, You now acknowledge as a gift. Let your passion consume you.

Created To Be Creative

image

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. He created light and darkness.  In addition,God created day and night. He created animals, land and man. Apparently, God is the creator of all things seen and unseen. Since this is truth, I also believe that man was created to be creative. As humans, we are born with the ability to create. If you look at the creations of men from the start of civilization throughout industrialization, man was actually created a genius. As hard as that is to grasp for some folks, man was created perfect in every way.

Our school system focuses on knowledge in an effort to control what you put into your mind. But it’s your creative side that opens the door to freedom and opportunity. I feel that man is fulfilled when he uses his ability to design his life instead of following the crowd. Albert Einstein said imagination is greater than knowledge. Mr Einstein says knowledge is limited, but imagination is seen throughout the world. Obviously, you need knowledge. You have to know how to do things that pertain to daily living and so forth. That’s common sense. What I’m talking about is living by personal design. You can’t learn that in school. Imagination promotes independence in a dependent society.

In conclusion, you were created to be creative. You were also created to glorify God. In order to live a life of creativity, you must first change your mindset. You must decide that you are going to create. We spend our lives consuming but never producing. When you create, you change your fate. Economically speaking of course. So be creative and be a blessing.

Dreams Don’t Fail, People Do

doubt kills more dreams images

Perhaps, your dream is to become a speaker, entrepreneur or educator. Somehow, things didn’t work out that way. You say to yourself, maybe it wasn’t meant to be. Instead of becoming what you wanted, you became what you didn’t want. So you gave up on your dreams. There is a popular quote that says, if you don’t have dreams, you will continue to work for those who do.

When I got into my business, my sponsor told me that “this business is 80%mental and 20% physical. He then told me that I would quit on him before he quit on me. I thought about that statement. I realized that dreams don’t fail, People do. It’s amazing how we quit our business and say it failed me. I think it is more noble to say I failed instead of my business failed. If someone is succeeding in the same business you’re failing in, it’s not the business. It’s you!

We give up on our business, we give up on our marriage, we give up on life. Is there anything we don’t give up on? We must get rid of the “I will try it for a month to see what happens mentality”. Our dreams don’t fail us we fail our dreams. It is always easy to blame something or someone other than ourselves. This is because we don’t have the courage to admit we failed. In the past, I joined many business programs to support my dreams. I made lots of mistakes and quit. I did not regard the value that was offered to me. Today, it’s a different story.

In conclusion, dreams don’t fail, people do. We are the ones responsible for fulfilling our dreams. They will not get realized without our effort. When it’s all said and done, the person responsible for any failure is you. Leaders accept success and failure. Dr. Martin Luther King had a dream. So should you.
