I listen to this song nearly non-stop during my day, and it really motivates me.
What Is Network Marketing / Multi-Level-Marketing?
The answer is really simple. It’s advertising. Instead of the company paying millions of dollars on advertising, such as TV, Radio, etc. They hire a direct selling team, who then “recruits” consumers to use the product and promote it themselves, and by doing this earn a commission.
In Network Marketing, NOBODY tells you how much you make – your income is completely dependent on your efforts, and how committed and dedicated you are to the business.
Oh, I have to recruit, that’s a pyramid scheme
WRONG first of all, pyramid scheme’s are ILLEGAL. Second of all, look at your current position and the structure of the management/employees. Does it look like this? Does your direct boss make more than you? Do they make your schedule? Do they tell you what to do? Do they tell you when you can take vacations?
Yes, I thought so too. In a legitimate MLM/Network Marketing opportunity only YOU determine how much you make, you can make someone who is higher than you, you CAN set your own hours, you CAN take vacations whenever you want. Now here is what an MLM/Network Marketing “Pyramid” looks like.
Which would you rather be a part of? I know I’d much rather be a part of the latter as well.
With that being said, there are no guarantees when you join a legitimate MLM/Network Marketing business, you get what you put in it, and to be honest, most people don’t make any money because they give up too easy. Simply put, don’t give up, work your butt off for a while, and you will be making tons of money!
Here are a couple things to do before you join an MLM/Network Marketing company
- Find — and study — the company’s track record
- Learn about the product
- Ask questions
- Understand any restrictions
- Talk to other distributors (beware of shills)
- Consider using a friend or adviser as a neutral sounding board or for a gut check
- Take your time
- Think about whether this plan suits your talents and goals
Pyramid Scam eh? You mean CORPORATE AMERICA
This short article is about some standard ways on how to be successful in whatever network marketing/MLM opportunity you’re currently involved with.
NOTHING comes overnight, don’t give up after your first “NO” hell, don’t even give up after your 100th NO. Once the YES comes you will forget about all the people who said no. Just keep going, and going, and eventually you will be where you want to be.
MAKE A COMMITMENT AND STICK TO IT
Network Marketing isn’t easy, but it’s also not rocket science. Set your self up a schedule and stick to it. When I first started I only worked on my business 2 hours per day and that’s it. But during those two hours, I worked my ass off. I suggest you find something that works for you and stick with it.
PLUG INTO COMPANY TRAINING
ALL legitimate network marketing companies will have a training program for you to go over. Watch/Listen to it regularly and keep on top of the current events that are going on with your company. Try to attend some live training sessions if your company offers such.
MAKE YOUR UPLINE WORK FOR YOU
When you first start off in Network Marketing, your credibility is practically zero however, you may have some people in your upline who are successful in the business, and can speak to your potential team members and assist you to show them the road.
DO SOMETHING EVERYDAY TO PROMOTE YOUR BUSINESS
Everyday do something that will promote your business. Write a blog, create a LinkedIn discussion, Facebook page fan interactions are all great exposure opportunities.
DON’T BE AFRAID TO TELL PEOPLE WHAT YOU DO
My biggest fear when I first started was rejection from family and friends. A lot of my friends laughed at me, said I was in a “Pyramid Scheme/Scam” and brushed me off. DO NOT let that deter you, network marketing is a FANTASTIC opportunity if you do the right things.
A quote from Donald Trump when asked if he had to do it all over again, what would he do. His ONE LINE answer was this
“I would get into network marketing”
That’s all for now, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or want to know what my business is all about!
