Will Your Money Mindset Make a Difference in Your Network Marketing Business?

How important is your Money Mindset to your Network Marketing Business?

Your money mindset will absolutely make a difference in your network marketing business and it is also very important for your success!  Let me ask you a question.  How do you feel about this sentence:  You will only make as much money as you have developed your mind for wealth?

Does it make sense to you?  Do you really understand what the message is?  Read it again.  Do you believe you can develop your mind for wealth or for at least more money?  I do.  Because I did exactly that.  Today’s blog is about something that is very important to me: our money mindset.

How do you feel about money?  Do you really know how you feel about money?  Do you know what your money mindset is? Do you hear yourself say things like “he is filthy rich.”  Or “she is so rich, she must be lucky.”   Let’s take the “filthy rich” example.  If you think something is “filthy”, do you want more of it?  Who wants to be filthy anything?  A lot of people think that wealthy people are selfish, which always intrigues me because most wealthy people are actually very generous.  If you think wealthy people are selfish or acquired their wealth through unethical means, do you even want to become wealthy?   How do you feel when someone else has a lot of money?  Are you critical of others success?  Do you think celebrities, athletes and movie stars are “just lucky”?  If rich people are “bad”, are broke people “better”?  Who has the opportunity to serve more people: The person with means or the person without?  Sometime people get stuck that if they have more then someone else has less.  That isn’t true.  You need to believe in abundance and that you can be wealthy without taking anything away from anyone else.

Maybe you don’t want to become wealthy, maybe you just want to get past the just getting by phase.  It all works the same.  We limit ourselves.  We are the ones that put the cap on our potential, including our earnings potential.  Can you see how your language, how your beliefs about money could be sabotaging your ability to create more income in your life?  You can change your money mindset for sure.

It is fascinating to listen to people’s language about making money and rich people.  Most of us are walking around with the wiring from what we overheard about money when we were kids by family and friends who didn’t realize what an impact those faulty wires would have on us.   That was the beginning of our money mindset.  It is up to us to improve and expand it.

Change your Money Mindset. Change your life.

Money Mindset Exercise

Here is a quick exercise for you.  Pull out a blank sheet of paper and draw a line down the middle.  Write down Money is at the top of the left side of the page and Rich people are at the top of the right side of the page.  Now finish each sentence with as many adjectives as you can for about a minute each.  Now look at the words.  Are they empowering words?  Are they words like difficult, a pain, never enough, or hard to get?  If the words for how you describe money and rich people are less than positive, then you have some work to do to change the wiring you have acquired a long the way.  It happens to all of us and it is something you can change.  Just by becoming aware of it.  I promise you – it is holding you back both in life and in your network marketing business.

I believe money is fun.  I love investing money.  I love giving money to my favorite causes.  I love spending money on my friends and family.  I love creating passive income from my network marketing business.  But It definitely wasn’t always that way.  My parents had nine kids (in 11 years!) and money was definitely not abundant.  There were a lot of things we couldn’t afford.  I learned a lot of good things about money from my parents like saving and living within your means but what I learned about attracting money and investing and improving my money mindset came much later.

About 15 years ago, I went to work on my money mindset.  I started reading books about creating wealth (Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill is still my favorite). I started associating with people who were very successful.  I started asking them questions and asking for their advice. I started paying attention to their language around money.  I have never heard a person who has a lot of money say “I can’t afford that”.  They may say, “I don’t need that.”  It is a choice, not a foregone conclusion.  Watch what you say to your kids.  Instead of saying “we can’t afford that”, how about a more empowering question like “how could we afford that?”  It will help create some entrepreneurship in your kids and it opens up the possibilities instead of shutting them down.  Start your kids off with a healthier money mindset than most of us started with.

Will your money mindset affect your network marketing business

Would you like to stop using language that doesn’t serve you?  If you have limiting beliefs about money then, no surprise – you won’t have much.  You are not better or able to serve many by staying broke. When you change the language of broke and move towards abundance, you change the possibilities for what is coming your way for the better!  And the others in your network marketing business will notice a difference in you.  This is a great thing to teach people, too.

What if your money mindset changed to where you could make as much money as you possibly could?

What if you made as much as you could?  What if you could give away a lot of money to help others?  What if you became one of the top earners in your network marketing business?  What if a lot more of us believed that was possible and went out and did it?  Here is the biggest tip for creating more income:  create more value in the marketplace.  The value you create is directly related to the income you will earn.  If you want more money, provide more value!

I believe we are here to help each other and one of the best ways to serve is to create more income in our lives so we have the opportunity to help more people.

Network Marketing Tip: How to Be a Better Sponsor

Know your Why

Do you want to be a better sponsor for your brand new person?

Here is a network marketing tip for you:  If you want to be a better sponsor, Know Your Why for building your business and help your brand new person to know their why for building their business. It seems so simple but there is more to this than you would think at first glance. If you add this one thing, you will build a stronger, happier and bigger team.

In the network marketing profession, we talk a lot about the need to know your why.  We ask our brand new person (or we should be asking) “Why do you want to do this business?”  And we often hear “your why needs to make you cry”.  (I don’t think my why has ever made me cry – but it does move me into action.)  If you want to be a better sponsor, you need to help your brand new person to see that their why needs to be big enough so it will get them up out of that comfy chair and into action.  This is a really important question to ask your newly sponsored person.

When I first got into the industry in 2006, I remember feeling awkward about asking someone what their why was and to share with me their dreams.  It seemed too personal.  Remember, I come from a big American corporate background – we never did anything like that!  So I didn’t do this first step for the first year.   And then I realized that if I wanted to be a better sponsor to the people that I was bringing into the business, that I might want to include what I was being taught as being the first step.  And when I finally got the nerve up to start asking people about their why, I was amazed at how powerful it was.  People that I had known for years started sharing with me things I had never known that they wanted to do.  Molly wants to build a meditation retreat center and Sue wants to create movies about kids that have overcome hardships.  I had no idea until I asked the question.

Network Marketing Tip:  Help people to understand that to know your why for building this business is key.

When I started asking people what their why was, the conversation around this question really helped to create a bond between  my brand new teammate and me – even when it was someone I had known for years. But the key to asking your newly sponsored person about their why is to keep asking the question.  Everyone will say when asked “tell me your why for building this business”:  “because I want more money”, “because I want to get out of debt”, or “because I want financial freedom”.  And those are great goals.  But the money all by itself isn’t enough.  Trust me on this, it isn’t enough!

Know your Why to build a Network Marketing Business

When somebody says they want to pay off their bills and that is why they are coming into business with you, if you want to be a better sponsor, you need to ask them to think bigger.

So keep asking questions.  Network Marketing Tip:  Leaders ask questions.  Follow up with these questions:  What are you going to do with the money?  Why would financial freedom be important?  What does it look like?  Where do you live?  What does your house look like?  Who is with you?  What car do you drive?  Where do you travel to?  How do you travel?  Are there causes that you want to give to?  What are you going to do for you, your family and friends that is different?

If you want to be a better sponsor, keep asking questions….

When to Use 3 Way Calls in Network Marketing

Most people don’t have these answers right away, but given a few minutes, they will come up with the real reasons and their real why to build a home based business.  The reason why we don’t have the answers right away, is nobody in our traditional business life or even personal life, asks us this!  And that is exactly why it is so powerful.  By asking your brand new person this you are helping them to visualize what success would actually look like for them.  That is much more powerful than a blanket “I want financial freedom.”  You are helping them to figure out where they are going and to FEEL what that would feel like.  You are helping to anchor that feeling so when the ups and downs happen, they can tap into that feeling to remind themselves why they are building a network marketing business.  And if you want to be a better sponsor, you will remind them of that feeling too when the ups and downs inevitably happen.

This conversation between two people is actually a wonderful experience for both of you!

Network Marketing Tip: Do You Need to Meet Industry Leaders?

Network Marketing Tip: Mentors are Important!

Network Marketing Tip:  Is it important to meet Industry Leaders?

The short answer is yes. Absolutely.  Success really does leave clues.  And if you want what successful people have – the easiest way for you to get there is to follow in the footsteps of people who have already been there.  My life is absolutely different and better today because of mentors AKA Industry Leaders.  Mentors will help you in ways you can’t even imagine today.  Real leaders have a heart space to help other people become successful too!

Here is a network marketing tip and example for you of what I am talking about.  I just returned home from the Top Earner Academy event with Ray and Jessica Higdon, two rock stars in the network marketing training space. I had the great pleasure of meeting Lisa Grossmann and Curtis Broome while I was there. Lisa and Curtis have been in the network marketing industry for about 25 years and hugely successful in building great businesses all over the world AND consult with many network marketing companies on how to be well, just better.  Do you think they might be able to teach us a few things?  Do you think they are true leaders in our industry?

I loved hearing Lisa speak at the Top Earner Academy event and knew that I wanted to meet her and get a chance to talk with her before the event was over. I was surprised (and elated) when Lisa came up to me after I spoke on the Success Panel and said “I am so glad I get to meet you. I have been following you for a long time.” I thought – “really, me?”.   (Do you recognize that little voice inside all of us that questions if we really have something worthwhile to offer? Ignore it.  Tell it to be quiet and go away.) Needless to say, I was very happy that she did come up to me!  Because even though we hadn’t met, I knew Lisa was one of the top leaders in our industry!

Top Earner Academy - Leaders

Take advantage of the opportunities before you and talk to the Leaders in the room!

After the session that day, I was so tired and really just wanted to head back to my room and was doing so, when I heard my higher self say, “you need to go back and find Lisa and Curtis and see if they want to go to dinner tonight or meet for breakfast tomorrow. You have been given this opportunity for a reason.” So I made myself walk back, found Lisa and asked her. And I did indeed get to spend several hours talking with Lisa and Curtis that night. You know when you make a connection with someone and you just know it will be an important relationship in your life? Well, that is how I felt.

The moral to the story is:  first, put yourself in situations where you can meet industry leaders and potential mentors and when you do put yourself in situations where you have the opportunity to reach up and meet someone  – say an Industry Leader, that you really admire and want to get to know, then let them know that. Take advantage of the situation you put yourself in. Create the situations where that is possible. Recognize who are the potential agents for good (friends/mentors/trusted advisors/industry leaders) in your life and seek them out. Don’t give in to “I’m tired” or “they won’t want to talk to me” or “maybe another time”. No, right now is the time that you have been offered to meet that person.  It is good to reach up!

Network Marketing Tip:  Be courageous and approach the Industry Leaders!

Network Marketing Tip: Approach the Leaders!

Force yourself to walk back and put yourself smack into the situations and connections and friendships that can make a difference for you. It might be a successful business owner you know that is just looking for a new business. It might be a teacher or a mentor that you meet at an event. It might be the organizer of a networking event you just attended. The best way to create success is to surround yourself with people who have done what you want to do. Those opportunities happen more often than we realize – don’t ignore them or cave into the little voice that holds us back. I am so glad I didn’t the other night!

Overall, the top earner academy was a huge success and a great learning experience.

What is the Most Under-utilized Tool in Network Marketing? 3 Way Calls

Network Marketing Tip: 3 Way Call

Network Marketing Tip:  When and How to use 3 Way Calls

Would you like to understand when and how to use the most under-utilized tool in Network Marketing?  Let me ask it another way.  Would you like to build a bigger business?  The 3 way call is one of the very most effective tools we have in our industry and it is shocking how it doesn’t get used so much more. When it is used correctly, it is an incredible way to close more reps and build better relationships. I had a mentor years ago share lots of network marketing tips with me – but this was one of the best ones.  And it is really quite simple.  But there is a proper chain of events that should happen to have the most effective 3 way calls you can have.

 

The first thing I want to clear up is clarifying that  3 way calls aren’t just for rookies.  I have earned millions of dollars in this industry and in the last 24 hours, I have brought my sponsor, Kelly Bangert (another 7 figure income earner) on to 4 calls with me!  (He is the handsome devil in the picture below.  LOL)  Network Marketing Tip #1:  If you want to build a bigger business, realize while it is GREAT for brand new people to use 3 way calls, even as you advance in rank, you should always use 3 way calls and I will explain why.

Yes, it is especially important for new people because they will learn by listening to you and the more you can help your new distributors to feel good, to feel like they are getting it, to make more money sooner and to build a bigger business – the better for everyone!  But why would I have brought my upline on to FOUR 3 way calls in the past 24 hours?  One reason:  Third Party Credibility.  And sometimes that just is the best tool in the toolbox.  Sometimes it is incredibly effective to let a 3rd party share why they said yes to your company and what is so great about the comp plan, etc…
You might say something very similar but sometimes your prospect will get more out of hearing it from someone other than you or someone in addition to you.

How to Use 3 Way Calls

3 Way Calls: When do you use this tool?

Network Marketing Tip #2:  You use 3 way calls AFTER your prospect has been exposed to your opportunity via two tools.  If you want to build a bigger business and create a relationship with your upline, sponsor or teammate then you need to follow this   You need to do your job first which is to introduce your prospect to your business by having them watch a video, attend an event, watch a webinar, or listen to a conference call.  Ideally, your prospect would have “two exposures” before you bring your upline or your sponsor on.

If you have done that and followed up with your prospect correctly (read timely followup), and asked the question “What did you like about what you saw or listened to?”   You want to draw out as many positives as you can.  And they tell you what they liked.  And if they tell you a lot about what they liked, then maybe they don’t need a 3 way call and you can say “Sounds like you liked what you have seen.  Let’s get you started.”  This is where you lead them to a decision.  And a lot of people will say okay.  The first few times it happens, you will be thinking to yourself – “Really?  Really, you are ready to sign up?”  But don’t say that out loud….

When to Use 3 Way Calls in Network Marketing

Can you see how this network marketing tip will help you to build a bigger business faster?

You will have a much better chance of closing more prospects if the people you bring on to the call have had two exposures to tools and or events. You see, it isn’t a correct use of 3 way calls to think that your upline is going to do all the work.  You have to prime the pump.  So let’s say you ask “What did you like best about what you saw or heard?”  And they tell you all of that and they also say “I have a few questions.”  Great. Questions are good.  It means they have interest.  It means they are giving this serious thought.  Okay –  now you can say, “That’s great.  I see you have some great questions.  I would love to bring my business partner on the line and we will answer your questions together.”

Importance of Edifying on 3 Way Calls

Network Marketing Tip #3:  This isn’t the time to edify the upline. Not yet.  So you have let your upline know ahead of time that you were in follow up call mode and they are on stand by in case you need them.  Now your educated prospect has questions and you have casually said you would like to bring your business partner on the phone.  Time to get them all on the phone together.  NOW you edify the heck out of the upline.  The reason not to do it before is a person’s wall of resistance will go up if they think you are going to bring on the master closer….  Once the 3 of you are ON the phone together, now is the time to edify the upline.  Another common mistake many people make is they edify the prospect to the upline.

Wrong way!  You tell the prospect all the great things about the 3rd party on the phone – your upline or your teammate.   You tell them how lucky we are to get this person on the line, that she is the top income earner, or the only X rank in the area, or just the best sponsor you could have asked for. Make your prospect feel comfortable and lucky to be on the phone with you and your upline/sponsor.  And now this is really important.

It is time for you – the organizer extraordinaire of 3 way calls to be quiet.  Don’t interrupt.  Do let your upline do most of the talking.  This isn’t always easy. You think of something they forgot.  You think of something that would really help…. If you really want the 3 way calls to work and to build a bigger business faster, then almost all of the time you just want to be quiet and let your upline work the 3rd party magic.  And never correct the person you just edified.  Even if they say something wrong.  Your prospect doesn’t  know.  You can clear it up later…  Chances are really good it isn’t important anyway.

How to build a bigger business

Lastly, set a goal for how many 3 way calls you are going to do each week. Track those numbers.  The more 3 way calls you have, the more it means you are doing the right things – contacting and inviting people to look at your products/services and opportunity.  When you bring more qualified prospects to a 3 way call, you are closing more people. It works. This is also a great way to get your upline’s attention.  When we see our teammates doing the right thing and engaging, we are more involved in their success.  And that is always a good thing!  Here’s to you building a bigger business and helping all of us to make the 3 way calls to no longer be under-utilized!

Network Marketing Tip: One of My Biggest Breakthroughs

Network Marketing Tips

Network Marketing Tip:  One of my biggest breakthroughs

 One of my biggest breakthroughs as a Network Marketing Leader came when I really understood that one of the most important things I could do was to advance in RANK.  When I realized that advancing in rank is an absolute best way to help the team, it helped me to understand a great network marketing tip that a mentor had shared with me years ago.
People need to know that it can be done.  People want to follow in the footsteps of people who have done it before.  You need to become the Network Marketing Leader who is leading the way.  Often we lose perspective on how important this is.

Why is your Advance in Rank Important?

We are all busy right?  A huge breakthrough for me came when I realized that even though I wanted to help everyone,  that the best way to help the team and inspire everyone was for me to advance in rank AND to partner with a few key people on my team and to help them advance in rank.  And then they could do the same thing for a few people.  And it snowballs from there.  A fundamental Network Marketing Tip is we have to lead the way and we have to set the example.  It is very true that the leader sets the pace.  Are you the network marketing leader that you would want to follow?  Have you made it a priority to advance in rank?
Advance in Rank
There are so many people to connect with and to build relationships with online and offline.  It is really easy to focus too much time on too many people.  It is easy to become overwhelmed.  Result: you are scattered and you have scattered results.  Not the best way to help the team.  Focus is key.  You have to decide in a strategic way who you spend your precious time and energy on.  We need to be spending our time with people who are open, interested and willing to do the work and most importantly, ARE doing the work.  Not saying they will do the work or saying they want to do the work.  But actually are doing the work.  They are coachable and are following your instructions and listening to your guidance.  One of the best ways to help your team is to FOCUS.  To focus on your own next advance in rank and a few key serious partners.  You can inspire many.  You can coach many with today’s tools.  You can build very serious partnerships that last with a dozen.  That sounds contradictory for our network marketing business model.  I know.  I resisted it too.  One of the reasons we do this business is from a sincere desire to help many people.  And you can and you will by first becoming successful yourself and then helping a few people.  You have to start out with a few before you can help the many.  How do we eat an elephant?  One bite at a time.  As the leader you need to focus.  Look at your back office reports and find who are the people who are making it happen.  And then help fan that flame.  It will be the BEST way to help the TEAM.  
It is fascinating how often we find someone that really wants to build with us and what I have noticed is we help that person get started and then we often move on way too quickly, because of course we need to find another “good one” like that one.  And we end up spinning too many plates and there isn’t enough time to really hunker down and help a few to become really successful.  The best way to help the team is for YOU to advance in rank and to help a few others to advance in rank, then they can help some others advance in rank.    Choose the few to help advance in rank – be strategic.

What is the best way to help the team?

Best Way to Help the Team

Take the time when you meet someone that is ready to go that you really connect with, to help them become successful.  Don’t move on too quickly.  We often move on from Rachel Rock Star because we think “they are making it happen, I need to go work over here because Joe Bob really needs my help.”  That is faulty wiring.  If Joe Bob isn’t doing the work and isn’t motivated, you should keep spending your time with the Rock Star, not the ones on your team that you want it for more than they do.
You can’t do it all.  One of my biggest breakthroughs came when I realized that for me to advance in rank didn’t mean that it was all about me.  And it wasn’t selfish.  I realized that the best way to help the team was for them to see teammates advance in rank and that your OWN advance in rank helps them and inspires them in ways we can’t even imagine.  Help many.  Focus on a few.

Great Productivity and Happiness Tip for Network Marketers

Great Productivity and Happiness Tip for Network Marketers

Would you like to know one thing that I started doing last year that has helped me to be happier, more content and more productive in my business?  It is so simple!  I don’t know why I didn’t think of it before.  I love creating lists; I am a checklist nut.  I am one of those network marketers that makes a list because I love checking things off the list.  I am the type of person that forgets to include something on my checklist that I have already done and I write it down on the list just so I can check it off right away.

Too many items on that checklist?

I am also the type of person that puts way too many things on my list.  Sometimes my list for the day looks like a list for the week and I have to scale it back.  Does that sound familiar?  Are you a network marketer that is unrealistic sometimes about how much you can get done in a day?  It is easy to do – we are busy entrepreneurs with big visions.  I still have bigger goals for what I can get done in a day than what is really possible, but this one productivity tip changed my level of satisfaction and even happiness.

Checklist for Network Marketers

Checklist for Network Marketers

What is one productivity tip that makes me happier at the end of the day?

At the end of the day, I create another list that bullet points what I DID get done!  The feeling of satisfaction I get from doing this makes my day.  I change from being a frustrated “I didn’t get everything done on my list” person to a “Wow, look at everything I got done today!”  It sounds really simple, which it is AND it also completely changed my focus from being one of scarcity as in not enough time to being one of feeling grateful and empowered for what I did get done.  I have to admit, sometimes I don’t make the actual list and when I get into bed and start thinking of what I didn’t get done, I can quickly switch gears and I start listing in my head ALL the things I did get done on my checklist.

And it feels great!  Network marketers – I highly recommend trying this.  It is much better to end the workday feeling productive and empowered!  Here is to your happiness!

3 Biggest Mistakes Network Marketers Make

Network Marketers biggest mistakes

The 3 biggest mistakes Network Marketers Make…

The first one has to do with how you see yourself.  What is your vision for you and your business?  Most of us know what we need to do to move our businesses forward.  We know the HOW to’s but how big is our reason TO DO it?  Most of us haven’t spent nearly enough time on this.  That is one of our first biggest mistakes when starting our businesses.  The HOW TO isn’t what you are missing.  It is the WHY TO which has everything to do with your vision.   If you don’t have a strong enough vision and why to do this business, you can have all the how to’s and it won’t get you there.  Is your vision clear?  Is it strong?  Is it powerful?  Does it make you want to move forward?  My vision is to represent this great industry in a powerful and abundant way and to be the best professional example I can be.  My vision is to help a lot more people to see building a home-based business as a way up and out.  My vision is to help many people to become financially free.  It bothers me how many people are struggling financially today.  It bothers me how many people are worried about their retirements (and they should be).  We as an industry have a solution and I love that I get to represent that vision.  What is your vision?  Spend a minute and comment below.  I would love to hear!

If you fix the first mistake – your lack of vision, the second biggest mistake will be easy to remedy.

I see many people come in and out of this.  Consistency takes discipline.  It takes hard work.  If you work this one week and don’t make any calls for 2 weeks and then come in and work it for a few hours the 3rd week, what do you think the results will be?  Would that work if you were trying to lose weight?  Not very well.  I always say that being consistent with your daily routine on HOW to build your business is critical.  I know I became a top earner in the industry because I was consistent with the activities.  And it still amazes me at how extraordinary the results are from ordinary actions done consistently.  If you are consistent and you have a big vision, you only need one more thing to become a top earner in this industry.

Network Marketers Vision

 

So what is the 3rd biggest mistake network marketers make?

There are just too many network marketers that buy into that this is going to happen quickly.  That it isn’t going to take serious work.   This isn’t a get rich quick or get rich overnight plan.  I know one thing for sure: the harder I work the luckier I get.  We have to give this enough time.  If you start your business (any business) with the attitude that “I will give it 6 months and see how it goes,”  I can guarantee what your results will be.  If you go into this saying “I have a great vision, I will be consistent and I will work this business until it works” – you increase your chances for success times 1000!    What if it took you 5 years to become really successful as a professional networker?  It would be worth it!    Work on your vision, be consistent with the activities and give this enough time and you will be amazed.  Take it seriously.  I can’t even begin to tell you how glad I am that I did!

Consistent Action for Network Marketers

Network Marketing Tips: How To Get More Customers

Network Marketing Tips…

Wouldn’t it be great to know how to get more customers?

Here is a question.  What if you could show and tell your prospective customers how to use your products and what you like about them?  What if there was a way to get your passion across in a duplicatable way – there is. I know videos are a great way to set you apart from the pack. They aren’t always easy to get done and lots of things get in the way but it is so true that the more you do, the easier it becomes. Create a video that shows your prospects how to use your products – whatever that might be – whether it is a health and nutritional product, or a body wrap or a legal service.

You could create a video that highlights the main products and explains when and where they would use it.  This short video is a quick example that I created for my company’s product line.  You get the idea.  It doesn’t have to go into all the ingredients and the features.  You will convert more prospects into customers because people feel like they know you. Like they have met you via the video.

Create a video to share how and when you use your  products.

How to get more customers …. it’s all about being personal

Just a quick overview with some of the things that you really like about product X.  Tell your story.  Telling a story will always make your videos more interesting and personal.  And it will be easier for you to create them!  And remember when you are creating a video – you are talking to ONE person.  Make it friendly and accessible.  Don’t think about the thousands that might see it.  Think about your neighbor across the street – the one you really like that is the perfect customer for your product or service.  And above all – don’t try to be perfect.  If you do, it may not ever get done.  Just start….  It is our quirks that make us interesting anyway.  All you have to be is YOU on camera. Make sure you smile more than usual and pump up the energy too.  The camera responds well to movement and passion in your voice.  I know I need to learn to relax more and smile more, too in front of the camera. All a work in progress!

Once you have this video, then you can start sharing it online.  You will have it to send out in emails when prospects inquire.  You can post it on Facebook and in Facebook groups.  You can write a blog about it.  You can publish it on Youtube.  Videos are so multi-purpose.  And they last.  You can use them over and over again.  And people love seeing and hearing you share what and why you love your products.  And I would expect that you would be one step closer to figuring out how to get more customers.

Network Marketing Tips:  Creating a video on how to join your MLM Business

It should be short and sweet, personable, an easy process and most of all, help lead them to a decision. We all want a lot of customers right?  Not everybody is a business builder and we so appreciate our customers too! A video like this will also attract the business builder because they will see that you are in business and that you mean business. You are taking the time to do something that most people don’t do. And in the world of social media and the internet – videos are definitely winning. The more videos you have out there, the more people will find you and the more you will dominate the space you are in. The power of video is it is almost like you are there in person with them. It is SO much more personal. It reassures people that you are real.

A lot of us have fears and blocks about the camera and creating videos.  Sometimes we get stuck as soon as the camera is on us.  I know I was like that and can still need to run around the block a couple of times after a video session.  I have gotten much better though than I used to be – it takes practice.  That old saying about practice makes perfect.  It’s true but we don’t need to be perfect.  We just need to be better.  I remember reading a book called “The Purple Cow”, by Seth Godin.  I read that book when I first got into the network marketing industry and the message was because of all the advertising we see on a daily basis, that you needed to be a purple cow to stand out and be seen.  Videos will set you apart from what a lot of people are doing to build their network marketing business.  This is just one example of a quick and easy one that everyone can do.  Another network marketing tip:  if it is easy and duplicatable, then your team will grow faster.

Train Your MLM Downline – Do’s and Don’ts for a Successful Network Marketing Business

Train Your MLM Downline

Train Your MLM Downline…

You already know this is essential to grow your business, yet if you’re like most people, you stumble from time to time when it comes to getting that superstar team off the ground. Here are some useful DO’s and DON’Ts to create momentum in your team and train your MLM downline.

Train Your MLM Downline DO’s

Train Your MLM Downline DO #1

DO follow the leader and be coachable. In order to train your MLM Downline, you need to be a coachable downline yourself. Listen to the leaders in your business, watch what they are doing, and follow in their footsteps. If you call your active upline for council, do more listening and allow them to do more of the talking. This may sound obvious, yet people often get in their own way by not listening. Your leaders are here for your success, so take advantage of that resource, and follow the path of success that has been carved before you.

Train Your MLM Downline DO #2

DO always keep sponsoring. A trap that many people fall into is they get a few people going and then get stuck in “management mode.” Rather than try to train your MLM downline to sponsor, model this for them by sponsoring people yourself. The most successful leaders are ALWAYS bringing new people in. In my first year with my current company, I sponsored almost 80 people. I am always actively talking with new people, meeting with prospects, and looking for people that want to build this business with us. New people are the lifeblood of this business. Keep on sponsoring!

Train Your MLM Downline DO #3

DO remember your role is to be a resource. In order to train your MLM downline effectively, remember your role, as their sponsor, is to help them get started right. Your job is to help people know what they need to know to get their own business going successfully. After all, if you train your MLM downline to be dependent on you for everything, you are not going to create the duplication and freedom you want. Get comfortable with this sentence: “My job is to help you become independent of me as quickly as possible. Do you agree that’s a good goal?”

Train Your MLM Downline DON’Ts

Train Your MLM Downline DON’T #1

DON’T abandon people. It’s a mistake that many people in our industry make – You invest so much time and energy helping someone decide they want to join your business or try your products and then, as soon as they are on board, you leave them alone to figure it all out. Don’t just jump to the next person you want to sponsor – sit down with your new distributor and help them get started right.

Train Your MLM Downline DON’T #2

DON’T work with the wrong people. You did a great job to train your MLM downline and now you have a team that is running with it. Now what? A common tendency at this point is to think, “Okay, they’ve got it handled,” and then to give your energy to the people who seem to need it more. The problem is, the people who seem to need it more, may likely be those who are not in action. Spending your time with people who are not engaged creates struggle. If you want to create momentum in your business, work with the people who are working it.

Train Your MLM Downline

Train Your MLM Downline DON’T #3

DON’T promise the world. If you want to set someone up for success, set reasonable expectations. Don’t say things like, “You’re going to make SO much money SO fast.” Don’t tell people this is going to be easy. The truth is, the network marketing model is one of the highest leveraged business models out there, and you can absolutely build your fortune here. But it does take work. It takes stick-with-it-ness. There are ups and downs, good times and bad, just like any business. Train your MLM downline to be in it for the long haul by representing this business as the real career opportunity it is.

Keep these DO’s and DON’Ts in mind as you build your team, and be sure to share them with your rising leaders!
