The more time you spend in your career, the better you will get at it. If you want to build your network, you need to identity the top network marketing earners and study what they do. I have had the pleasure of having several amazing network marketing coaches in the last year. Each one taught me something new that helped me accelerate my business. This week I was inspired to share the six best network marketing secrets I learned from the pros!
6 Network Marketing Tips That Will Help Build Your Business
1. Share what duplicates.
In the network marketing world, duplication is everything. Focus on finding 2 or 3 strategies for generating quality leads. Can this strategy be easily replicated? If so, then you are on the right track. Once you have processes that work, it is easy to share them with your team and help them advance quickly. It will also make training and continued education much easier for you! The saying isn’t what works, it is what duplicates. You may have a very nifty way to build your business and maybe you do it behind the scenes, but the absolute key is to share strategies that EVERYONE can do. If everyone can’t do, then be very careful about over promoting it within your team.
2. Understand WHY you are in the MLM industry.
To be successful you absolutely need to be motivated. You also need to be able to inspire your team. Take the time to understand WHY it is you decided to get into network marketing and what you want your business to do for you and your family. Make it personal. Dream about it. Create dream boards with your why and place them around the house. If that “why” is not strong enough, it won’t push you to success. The saying is your vision needs to pull you forward. There will be ups and downs but if your why is big enough, you will survive and thrive. It takes time to build a network marketing business. Usually much longer than people realize. My WHY is to help lots of people all around the world with better financial health and to create our own financial independence. And to take dream trips all around the world!
3. Earners are learners.
Always keep learning! The minute you stop keeping up with MLM news, strategies, team meetings, etc., you will lose your competitive edge. Just remember, there are other people out there who are just as hungry as you are, if not hungrier. Stay one step ahead by knowing the best and most innovative ways to build your business. And even more important than that is you staying inspired. There are two BEST ways to do this: always attend events and read 15 minutes from a positive book that inspired you. Your job is to stay motivated and excited about what you have to offer. Events ALWAYS rev me up and reading great books also make me feel like I can conquer the world.
4. Don’t rely only your warm market.
Let’s face it. It’s easier to focus on people in your immediate network to build your business. However, if you want to scale your business up, this is not a long lasting technique. Start thinking of innovative ways to find leads that can be replicated. For example, go to your town or county’s small business owners meet ups. That is a great place to find driven entrepreneurs. In the past few years, social media has been a great place to find new demographics and to connect with people that you never would have met before. Think ambitious. Motivated. Self-starter types! I love talking to small business owners because they already have jumped through a lot of the hoops we expect people new to network marketing to jump through. Business owners already get the value in a partner and are looking for extra ways to earn income.
5. Get social.
Social media has totally changed the network marketing game. Social media sites like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter allow you to build teams all over the world without leaving the house! I am able to build and support my team and team culture using Facebook! Social media sites also allow you to communicate easily. It is hard to imagine even what it was like 5 years ago. My team uses a Facebook group page where we can all share tips, success, photos and documents. If you have a global platform with your company, you owe it to yourself to understand and take advantage of what Facebook has to offer. If you want to really learn this, take advantage of my good friend, Jessica Higdon’s training. Here is a link to several videos that Jessica recently created. Jessica always over delivers and has proven strategies for using social media to building a bigger, better business. https://gv964.isrefer.com/go/smrf-sales/kathdegg/
6. Be determined.
Building a network marketing business doesn’t happen over night. It will take time. It will take perseverance. You will hear a lot of “no’s”, but you can’t let that deter you! If you can keep learning, testing out what works and what doesn’t while having a positive attitude you will go far in this industry. I love that we get to earn and learn at the same time in our business. Quitters will always not get what they want! The fastest way to not get what you want is to give up. You have to have the tenacity to ride the wave. Enjoy the ride! A couple of years ago, there were some leaders in my business that were so frustrated with where their businesses were and then my company launched a new product that went viral and everything changed for them. What if they had quit? What if they didn’t have the long term vision you need to stay the course? They would have totally missed out on the best financial gain of their lives. It isn’t easy to stay in the game, but I can promise you, it is worth it!
