Successful Network Marketing – The Reality

Successful Network Marketing – The Reality

I first encountered Multi Level Marketing/MLM/Network Marketing in 1991. It was a company, I’m sure you have all heard of, called Amway. A old neighbor of my brother and I invited us to Burger King to prospect us. We both thought it was a scam, LOL!!!!

I was broke, working at a gas station pumping gas, making minimum wage at the time. So what did I know?.numis network marketing

Fast-foward 21 years I have been with 6 MLM companies from health and wellness to Legal services until I finally found my “perfect fit” in January of 2011.

I never made any money before the current company I am in. here are several reasons why…

The Reality.

1. Although I really pushed the products, most people weren’t interested in antioxidants and legal insurance. The main objection was that they didn’t want to risk any money.

2. I didn’t have enough start up capital to do my promotions justice and although I introduced users and promoters I always fell just short of the monthly join up requirements to be paid. Being paid for my efforts might just have made the difference if I could have used what I had earned to increase my promotions.

3. I joined with a very nice lady but she was also new to network marketing. As her upline didn’t offer any help to her we helped each other. It was fun but like the blind leading the blind.

I tried with that company for several months and never got paid. In the meantime  I started a brick and mortar computer repair business. Getting over 35,000 dollars in debt, working 60 to 70 hours per week and barely breaking even…

I thought there has got to be a better way. And also I dint make a good employee!!!

I knew people who had piles of the products stashed away and never likely to be used. Why? Because some of the companies require you to buy an amount of product every month before you are paid for your efforts and your downlines efforts.

Companies shifting the goalposts just when promoters start to do well.

I would get telephone calls inviting me to join a wonderful opportunity. Because I am polite I didn’t tell them to get lost when they were extolling the virtues of companies that I probably knew more than them about. I would list my objections and get really annoying answers:

I’m not interested in the product
…The product doesn’t matter you will soon earn lots of money

I haven’t got time
…You only need to spend an hour a week on this business

network marketing pyramidI already have a lot of projects on the go and wouldn’t be able to do this business justice and spend time helping those who joined with me.
…They won’t need any help this business is easy to run

I could go on but I’m sure you get the drift. I really grew to detest network marketing and some of those that it attracted, but being in daily contact with them was part of my business so grinning and bearing it was a daily chore.

Until one day I had the pleasure of meeting an online marketing “guru”. He plugged me into his system. I started learning every week new skills to build my company online.

That guy impressed me, he became very successful and his downline was successful.  So now I work hand in hand with many of the top leaders in Network Marketing and my primary business. Now I bring value to the marketplace with the skills I have learned along the way.

So the moral of the story is plug into a system and find a mentor to take your business and your life to the next level!!

Warming Up Your Cold Market — Six Network Marketing Strategies For Success

Warming Up Your Cold Market — Six Network Marketing Strategies For Success

Are you finding that prospecting and working your “cold market” is getting chillier these days? I’ve noticed this, especially in the last year. When I contact people who had responded to an advertisement that my company ran, it is much more difficult to establish rapport than it used to be!

I’ve been quite surprised to see how much more closed and suspicious people have been compared to when I made phone calls just a year ago.numis network marketing Perhaps the challenges in today’s world have made their impact on people. They are more fearful, less likely to trust someone they don’t know.

How do you build rapport and build your network marketing business in times like this?  You will need a little more patience, but if you persevere and follow these five basic network marketing strategies, you can warm up even the chilliest of cold markets!

First, I’d like to review the basic network marketing strategies that create successful organizations. It’s important to understand that the people who excel in network marketing have a large circle of influence. A circle of influence means that there are a lot of people that know you, like you and trust you. If you don’t already have a large circle of influence, and you want to succeed in network marketing, you’re going to need to build one!

How do you build a circle of influence? One person at a time! It is always best to start with people that you know. Contact them and ask Numis Network Leadershipthem  for referrals. Participate in your community, attend Chamber of Commerce events, and hold local meetings. You develop yourself into a leader both personally and professionally, to attract other like minded professionals.

Online, you do the same in the internet community. You build a presence on the internet with a newsletter list or blog (or both) or website, so that you can build a relationship with people. You provide a way that they can get to know you… like an online photo album, and a personal “Get to Know Me” page.

These are the basics of good network marketing. Once you’ve contacted the people that you know, you will want to expand your circle of influence even further and get to know some new people! You can do this through advertising or through hiring a network marketing ad agency to advertise for you. Now, how do you handle today’s increasingly chilly cold market?  Well, you need to take more time to WARM IT UP!!!

Here are six network marketing strategies for warming up your cold market.

1. Whenever possible, use offline advertising sources such as postcards, newspapers, radio or TV. These prospects see your ad several times before responding, and are usually MUCH more highly qualified. If your ad is credible, people will trust you more easily.

2. If you must use internet advertising, be sure to use an established and proven leads source which includes the use of an e-mail autoresponder. This will allow you to contact people via e-mail legitimately, without spam complaints. If you are very serious about generating leads online, I recommend you create or purchase your own lead generating website. This takes time but is a lifelong investment if done correctly.

3. When you reach a person by phone, don’t rush the relationship building process. Find out what they are looking for, ask good questions, and really listen. Don’t be pushy, focus on their needs. If you’re new at working your cold market, team up with a successful leader in your upline who is experienced.

4. Offer something of value that is free like a report, eBook or consultation, that will both qualify and educate your prospect and that will also introduce you as part of the process. For example, on your free report include a link to your online photo album and your biography or “Get to Know Me” page.

5. Follow up several times to build familiarity and credibility with your prospect. Use an autoresponder to help you in this, but don’t depend on it. There is nothing like a good, old fashioned conversation to build trust. Sending a postcard in the mail may also help a lot!

6. Be a real person. Tell, don’t sell! Avoid sales pitches, instead, share your own story. Network marketing is about being your authentic best self. Let your heart and your integrity shine, and people will remember you and trust you. When they are ready to try your product or join your team, they will call you!

Training the New Network Marketing Distributor: Being a Good MLM Sponsor

Training the New Network Marketing Distributor: Being a Good MLM Sponsor

Today I would like to discuss “Being A Good Sponsor.” While many of the people you recruit into your organization may have had previous experience in network marketing, many will be first timers.

Similarly, if you’ve been successful in recruiting people who were involvednumis network marketing in other network marketing companies, you sponsored them because they were discouraged with their current company or were not receiving support or training. In other words, they weren’t as successful as they would have liked to be.

Wouldn’t that indicate to you that they don’t know the best way to do things? Well, that’s where you come in  helping them lay that track for others to run on. Again, when new distributors know what works, they can proceed with confidence, and confidence is the harbinger of success. Remember, people are not duplicable, but systems are.

Being a Good Sponsor

Being a good sponsor means showing your new distributors “The Rules:”

Rule No. 1: Treat it Like a Business.
In order to be successful, your new distributors must truly want success, be coachable, and follow through on their commitments. In other words, they need to treat this business like a business.

Rule No. 2: Keep it simple.
If they can follow a simple procedure  they will use the same system with their contacts. If they can see that what you did was simple, they will believe they can do it, too. If you had to really work on them, more or less “forcing” them into the business, your new distributors will not want to duplicate what you did and will not take any action.

Rule No. 3: Determine Their Reasons.
If you know what your new distributor wants from this venture, that is, why they want to succeed, you can understand how to get them over the rough spots and keep them on the road to success. Remember, most people will be tempted to quit with the first few setbacks because they were never clear on what they wanted to achieve in the first place. If their “why” is strong enough, the “how” will be easier to get across.

Rule No. 4: Establish Objectives.
Set specific sponsoring and financial objectives for the first 30, 60, and 90 days. People always perform better when they have specific goals in mind. Have your team member write down their goals and reevaluate them regularly.

Rule No. 5: Introduce Your Upline
Introduce new distributors to their upline, those leaders who are building a successful business and who are earning the type of income they’d like to earn. That way, if you’re not available to help them, they will have names and telephone numbers of others (you should give them at least 3) who they can contact for support. Further, by meeting others who are earning the type of income they’d like to earn, the system becomes more realistic and attainable.

Rule No. 6: Where’s the Tools?
Make sure they know how to get the tools they will need to share the business with others., such as tapes/CDs, brochures, business cards, etc. Every business needs information to disseminate with prospects. This one is no exception. Remember, people are not duplicable, but systems are. Teach them to let the tools do the talking for them.

Rule No. 7: Make a Prospect List.
Although everyone who makes a list doesn’t necessarily become a top earner, every top earner has a list. Typically, they’ll start with their Warm Market, because that’s the people they know. Have them work towards making a list of at least 100 people they can contact.

At this point, your new distributor should be ready to go. They have their “reason why” clearly in mind, specific objectives for the next 90 days, their upline’s contact information for plenty of support, the tools to get started, and a list of people to contact.

Having said that, remember Rule No. 8: Let Them Move at Their Own Pace.
Sponsoring a distributor is a process, not a single event. If they don’t want to move as fast as you do, that’s OK. You can’t change human nature. People will only do what they are willing to do. Encourage, yes, but don’t try to force people into something they aren’t willing to do. Lead by example.

Is Your Understanding Of Network Marketing Outdated?

Is Your Understanding Of Network Marketing Outdated?

I knew things in our industry had changed, but I didn’t realize just HOW MUCH they had changed until recently. Now we all know nothing stays the same, and progress is always welcome in Network Marketing, but I don’t think many of us are truly aware of the vast differences we’ve seen technology bring in just the past few years.

Ten years ago–even five years ago–a successful couple or individual working in Networking limited themselves by prospecting in exclusively their local market. Their local circle of influence.

Mike and Rita were about the best Networking team around a few years ago. They held weekly meetings at the public library and held even more meetings at their home. If you made any contact whatsoever with Mike and Rita, they would keep your phone and fax warm for days until you finally signed up on their program.

Not only that, but a BIG part of Mike and Rita’s success was due to their non-stop mailing of sales letters and postcards. Rita spent many a night posting their prospecting ads on Internet sites and newsgroups.

More than once they got kicked off of AOL and other ISP’s for being too aggressive when contacting prospects — a new no-no in the online age.

I supposed all the work Mike and Rita did was worth it, but at what cost? They worked night and day for years. And even then, I don’t think they were pulling in more than a few thousand dollars a month.

Now let’s fast forward to today. Mark and Sandra are the talk of the neighborhood. They live in a big expensive house and drive a luxury car. Most people can’t figure out how Mark and Sandra afford it. They’re seen at home all day and go on lengthy  vacations five or six times a year.

That part makes me smile, because I KNOW what Mark and Sandra do. They’re working in direct sales and MLM from home. Only there is a key difference in what they’re doing from what Mike and Rita were doing a few years ago.

Mark and Sandra use completely automated online systems to find huge numbers of leads, then filter through the leads to find only the best. Only then do Mark and Sandra start talking to their leads.

You see, Mark and Sandra don’t spend their days prospecting. They let the technology do all that prospecting and cold calling for them. The only time Mark and Sandra talk on the phone or answer an email is when a very hot prospect requests their call.

And here’s the good part: Because the technology takes so much of the work out of direct sales, Mark and Sandra are able to work less hours and make more money. Rather than earning a few thousand dollars a month, they’re bringing in TENS OF THOUSANDS.

Plus, with all that automation (and help from their upline organization) Mark and Sandra are able to take off and travel the world just about anytime they like.

Now that’s progress!

Network Marketing Training – Arm Your New Distributors for Success

Network Marketing Training — Arm Your New Distributors for Success

“Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them.”

– William Shakespeare, Hamlet, Act III, Scene i (58-90)

Hamlet may not have been talking about network marketing, but his words do apply. Almost every network marketer has experienced the “slings and arrows” of the naysayers, those often well-meaning friends and relatives that stand in the way of our making an “outrageous fortune!” Experienced network marketers, clothed in the armor of past success, are less vulnerable to outside influences. The new distributor, however, is vulnerable, and that “sea of troubles” can act as a barrier to reaching their true potential.

What did the knights of old do to prevent an injury? That’s right   they armed themselves. Their armor was heavy and cumbersome, and they needed a squire to help them prepare for battle. Well, the same is true for your new distributors. While the armor they must use is less cumbersome than that of the knights, you must help them arm themselves for success. In other words, you must be their squire.

What do I mean by “arming for success?”

When a new distributor joins your network marketing organization, they are moving into an environment that demands strong armor. There are a lot of “slings and arrows” that can hurt their chances for success and create a sea of troubles — of doubt, disbelief, even failure.

As Rich Dad, Poor Dad author Robert T. Kiyosaki points out, most people in this world are afraid to experience success. They are held back by negative thinking, and consequently suffer the pain of mediocrity. Because they have not been armed for success, and are more focused on security and survival, they subject themselves to a life of servitude and poverty and being someone else’s employee.

Arm your new distributors from negative thinking and potential disaster. How? By understanding why so many people are negative about network marketing and the prospects of the success it can bring.

Let’s face it. There are a lot of people out there that do not want you to become successful. When you are successful, you point out the lack of success in their lives. When you take away any excuses they’ve been hanging onto and you force them to look at their lives as they really are, it makes them very uncomfortable. You’ve heard of the expression “Misery loves company.” Well, it’s true.

Doug Firebaugh, network marketing guru, calls it the “Unspoken Understanding,” which is simply the silent agreement that most people have with each other, namely “don’t mention my mediocre life, and I won’t mention yours.” Your success and the success of your new distributors, just points out the naysayers’ mediocrity.

Leaders help others. If you are going to be successful in network marketing, you must arm your new distributors against people who will try to convince them their business won’t work.  Show your downline you want them to be successful. Encourage them. Show them how the most successful network marketers have achieved their success, and teach them to model those attitudes, habits, and actions. Remind your distributors that they are the CEO of their lives. Arm them with the power of positive thinking so they don’t let others live their lives for them with their negative attitudes.

To paraphrase Hamlet, by opposing negative thoughts, we end them.

Network Marketing Secrets – Explaining the MLM Home Business Concept – Harvesting Success

Network Marketing Secrets – Explaining the MLM Home Business Concept – Harvesting Success

Perhaps one of the best ways to illustrate the difference between the poor and the rich is by looking at agriculture…

A farmer buys some seeds and all the machinery required to plant, grow and harvest them. Then the farmer spends months of <b>unpaid</b> work and a lot of his money to grow his seeds so that he can harvest later on and finally reap the rewards of all his hard work.

To speed things up, the farmer can spend more of his money and hire workers to plant and grow his seeds for him. The workers then invest their time to grow the farmer’s business and when harvesting time comes, the workers get nothing of the rewards as they were already rewarded for their work (salary). The farmer makes so much (profits) from selling his harvest that he can pay more and more workers to do his work for him. The farmer ends up doing less and less work himself yet make more and more money.

10 years pass and the worker is still stuck in the same hole, still working hard for his money but the farmer sold his farm and now lives in a mansion 😉

Moral of the story: grow your own seeds!

Growing your Network Marketing businesses is not unlike this farming story. It does require hard work in the beginning and you are not paid for that work, you are only paid for the results that you achieve (harvest). However once those results start coming in, they keep coming month after month without any extra work being required as your trees keep producing fruits. Your business even grow faster and faster on its own as your customers start growing their own business within your organization. I guess we could call the network marketing industry the business of growing money trees… Every single customer you refer is a potential money tree and you need to nurture it so that it grows big and strong!

Take excellent care of your customers and they’ll reward you handsomely for it!

The Ebb and Flow of Network Marketing

The Ebb and Flow of Network Marketing

“And so I say to you: ‘Ask, and you will receive; SEEK, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you.’
“For everyone who asks will receive, and he who SEEKS will find, and the door will be opened to anyone who knocks.”
– Luke 11: 9-10. [Good News Bible]

No matter how long you’ve been in the Network Marketing business, you will have experienced what I call the “Ebb and Flow of Network Marketing.” It’s simply the highs and lows you experience from dealing with people. We have all experienced it, even the top earners in the business.

See if this has happened to you. You’ve just made a great presentation to a prospect and, in spite of your being able to neutralize every objection they have put forward, they still don’t sign up. You feel rejected, frustrated, and disappointed. You begin to wonder why you ever got into this business and what you’re doing wrong. You go into a bit of a “funk,” and start to feel sorry for yourself.

After a bit of a lull, you decide to try another presentation to another prospect. This time, they’re ready to sign up almost before you open your mouth. You’re on Cloud 9, you can move mountains, you are master of your domain!

What has happened? You’ve just experienced the Ebb and Flow of Network Marketing.”

Every MLM distributor goes through it. This emotional ebb and flow is often what stops many network marketers from achieving the financial freedom and security they desire. They let their emotions control how much work they put into the business, and a few “no’s” cause their efforts to diminish. Consequently, their business grinds to a halt.

Successful networkers, however, adopt a posture of emotional equilibrium, not getting too “high” with each success or too “low” with each failure. In his CD series, “Key to the Vault” (which I highly recommend to any network marketer), Bob Schmidt tells the story of John Wooden, the legendary coach of the UCLA basketball program, who won 10 national championships in a 12-year span. Wooden wanted his players to achieve a level of emotional maturity, or equilibrium, regarding their performance on the court. He wanted his players to behave in such a way that, after a game, a locker room observer would not be able to tell whether the team had won or lost. Wooden stressed to his players that if they had simply gone out and done their best, the outcome was not the issue. Therefore, being high on victory or low on defeat never entered into the equation. That’s what he meant by emotional equilibrium.

Remember the acronym S.E.E.K.   Seek Emotional Equilibrium Knowingly

Learn to control your emotions; don’t let them control you. If a prospect’s failure to sign up with you causes you to go into an emotional tailspin, you have lost control of the situation. Because your business depends on you, you are letting your prospect control your business. This is equally true for a prospect that does sign up. If you get too high on that success, and base you next actions on what the prospect has done, you have again let them take control of your business.

Don’t let your mood, your emotional state, control your efforts. S.E.E.K., and you will find the path to achieving the success you desire.
