For those of you who don’t know much about Network Marketing, you’re essentially running your own business. You work as an Independent Rep/Distributor of the particular companies product or service. In other words, you’re the boss, you decide when you want to work, when you want to take vacations, and most importantly how much YOU make.
Sounds good, right? Well, the world of Network Marketing isn’t all sunshine and rainbows. It can be a take a toll on someone who isn’t mentally prepared to what they’re getting into. If you’re not ready, I can almost guarantee that you WILL fail. 97% of people who enter Network Marketing, quit because they’ve given up too quickly.
Your First 60 Days
Your first 60 days are the most crucial, as statistics show that after 78 days most people quit – because they haven’t had the success that they want.
Chances are unless you’re very lucky, or have a lot of money and can commit to doing your business full time immediately, you’re not going to make a lot of money in your first 60 days, and truly that’s OK, and it’s NORMAL as legitimate network marketing companies, are NOT a “get-rich-quick-scheme” as most people believe this, and if they don’t see an immediate ROI they quit, which to be honest, I’ve done.
What to do in your first 60 days
- Personal Development
- Make a list of your “warm” market
- Reach out to your warm market
- Speak with others doing the same thing you are
- DON’T GIVE UP
Chances are you will need to adjust your mindset a little bit when joining a network marketing company as it’s really different than a “regular 9 to 5 job” so developing yourself as a leader, as a better entrepreneur is very crucial. If you’ve joined a legitimate network marketing company, they will WANT you to succeed, and so will your upline – so utilize the training materials offered by the company, call your upline regularly, or at least have regular contact with them. Go to the live training events, and you will up your chances of being successful.
Make a list of your “warm” market
This one is pretty simple, write down the names of numbers of AT LEAST 20 people you know, and interact with on a regular basis. Whether it be via text message, facebook, twitter.. whatever it is, make this list, and make sure they are people you want to work with as when you bring someone on board, it’s your responsibility to help them grow with the company.
Reach out to your warm market
Call them if you have their number, and don’t go right into pitching your business – have a humanly conversation first ask them about THEM, people don’t care what you say, unless they know that you care about them. If they’re a local person, ask them to meet up for a coffee or beers – and then talk about what you’re doing, and go on the pitch.
Speak with others doing the same thing you are
Find other members who are in the same business you are, or ask the person who referred to put you in the right direction towards others who are in the same boat as you. Talk to them, learn from their experiences, and mistakes.
DON’T GIVE UP
DON’T GIVE UP! Keep working away, do a couple things every day to promote your business to personally develop yourself and make yourself a better business person. I assure you, if you work at it you will be successful, you just have to realize that success doesn’t come overnight – and you will have to put your sweat and blood into this for it to be successful.

It’s your choice. Choose wisely.
Before joining any network marketing company, you obviously have a reason why you’re even looking into it, may it be money, freedom, travel.. whatever it may be it’s your reasoning. You’re going to need to have a truly solid WHY before you can be successful in obtaining any sort of success in network marketing. I’ve made a short video on what needs to be done before you join.
