Ins and Outs of Network Marketing

I have been with many network marketing companies.
I have much experience with the ins and outs of the business.

Did you know that you don't need to talk to friends and family;
make so many three-way calls; or always listen to your upline
who keeps telling you to do the same thing and it will work EVENTUALLY...?

Don't always talk to people who are not interested in building a business.
You want to talk to people who know what they are doing. Network
marketing is sometimes like the blind leading the blind.

Really the people you need to talk to are those like:

Donald Trump...who know what they are talking about!

Here are some levels of growing your business that might help!

Level 1 = Learning how to grow your own business...

a) Prospecting does not mean phoning someone at starts
with who YOU even want to talk to. You have to think about who YOUR
ideal prospect is, so try getting inside your prospect's mind.

What are their wants, needs and desires?

Think about the person's age or stage in life.
What's going to grab their attention?

b) Next think about their concerns...
Someone who wants to lose weight for example, is worried that if they
lose weight they don't want to put it back on again.

They are looking for a solution.

c) The presentation is important once you have a target market. You
should develop a presentation that solves a person's problem and tells
them how to do it. Try speaking directly to the person and help them
find a solution.

Don't keep talking about the opportunity...

The person is interested in you and how you can help them.

d) Next is closing...
Your responsibility as a closer is to help the person make a definite
decision whether it is yes or no and make sure they leave knowing why
they made that decision.

Make sure you take the time to care about them.
They will appreciate it!

e) You don'have to over qualify! Isn't it better to have:
20% to 40% of 100 people not 100% of only 1 person?

f) Next think: Are they a good fit? Do we get along?
Remember to think about yourself and what kind of team you want.
For example you probably don't want someone who doesn't have a
credit card and the want or need to build a business unless you want
a customer base as well.

Level 2 = Leverage Plan, Team and Time

a) You need to know the compensation plan to know where to place
people in your business and to know how to maximize the plan.

b) You should learn how to teach people to be independent leaders, that
way the three-way calls significantly reduce and you can spend your
time more positively.

c) Learn how to grow your income month after month.

d) It is a god idea to have a 30 day action plan showing people how to
add people daily without having to speak to friends and family. You want
to teach people how to grow a business so that you only have to manage
a few people in your top line and they can then manage their people.

e) You need to continue enrolling your team sees that your
business won't just grow on it's own, it does take work.

f) Remember you need to manage a family, business, and free time. You
need to learn how to balance your business. If you spend all your time
growing your business you won't have the family in the end to share
your success with, on the other hand if you don't grow your business
you won't find the success you have been looking for.

Level 3 = Working Online: Learn how to generate leads effectively.

a) Try being ahead of the game, if you spend $100 and make $300
then you are ahead.

b) Effective Sales Copy on your site is essential so learn how to use it to
get what you want...

c) If you use a company website you might get 1 for every 300 people, but
with your own website as an expert, you may sign up 30 for every 300!

Learn how to drive traffic to your site:

a) Pay per click - Google, Yahoo
b) SEO - Search Engine Optimization
c) Web 2.0 - Trading Time for Money

Make it happen! After all this...
You may even decide network marketing is not for you, so...

Here are some things to think about...
a) If you don't plan to spend 10 hours a week, your business won't grow.
b) You need to invest or your business won't grow.
c) You need to learn how to build teams properly.
d) Don't reinvent the wheel.
e) Get proper guidance from the experts.
f) Follow a proven system.

Online Advertising Ideas

Help with Online Advertising...

1. Brand Yourself
It is recommended to brand yourself and not just focus on advertising the company sites. Get your name out there and have your own website. If you are unsure about making a website just ask, there is so much help available for website design. I would be glad to help as well, as I have worked on my own personal sites.

2. Put Yourself in Their Shoes
People do not like to be sold. They like to believe they are the ones making the decision whether to buy or not to buy. Or whether to join a company or not. Offer the customer benefits to them. Think about the potential customer or business will they benefit from your products or services. Put yourself in their shoes.

Here are some questions you might consider when thinking about them:

a) Does it fulfill a need?
b) Does it fit their current lifestyle?
c) How will it benefit them healthwise or moneywise?
d) Will it benefit them in the future?

3. Don't Push
Rather than putting your sales link up everywhere. Have your link somewhere in the background where people can find it. Don't push it on them, let them browse and find the information. Once you have a personal blog or site you should definitely put your company links there so that they are accessible. don't want to push the company you want to portray yourself as the expert and available to offer help where needed.

The Dreaded Phonecall...

I had a wonderful conversation on the phone today...
Yes, on the phone...while calling leads.
Or should I say possible friends.

We were discussing how people in Network Marketing
are so into Social Media these days and networking online,

Which is's great to do the Social Media thing and

"Tweet on Twitter"
or make friends on

But what is missing?

You can wait for days, months even years before you ever really
connect with these people online. You may think you are connecting,
but how many people are really just wanting to build their own
business and prospect you?

People seem to forget about how to use the phone.
Yes, a phonecall is necessary to really connect.

Now in many cases I have met terrific people online...I have some
fantastic friends and truly think it's amazing.

But, remember if you are really trying to build a business you must
talk to people. Get to know them first online and then make the call.

Don't be afraid of picking up the phone!

The funny thing is, I was with a training group that encouraged you
to call leads all the time and I didn'

I was afraid of what the person might say on the other end...or maybe
I just didn't really know what to say...

It took me awhile to learn instead of calling people I kept
hoping and praying that if I kept meeting people online my business
would grow...

But how long would it take? Days, months, even years???

I was not prepared to wait that long...and I am sure you are not either.

So, what I am saying is pick up the phone...
The worst that can happen is the person says no or even hangs up on you...


Just go onto the next person and who knows you might even make a friend!
Call them like you were calling a friend not like another lead...
this will help you to feel more comfortable.

Tell you what, if you need practise I am more than willing to help.
It took me a long time to feel feel free to call me
or write.

I am here for you!
