I KNOW THAT YOU ARE NOT TRYING TO FAIL!! But are you sabotaging Your own efforts? Are You being taught how to fail... instead of successful network marketing?
Don't take me the wrong way! I'm not trying to make fun, but I really do see people doing this to their businesses all the time. It is not your fault! Network marketing is not a natural gift! Taught right, you can learn to do network marketing properly.(There is free mlm training.) You can learn this from the comfort of your own home or office. If you continue reading, I will show you some dos and do not s of network marketing. By using these, every day, it usually will help you in other aspects of life as well.
HERE ARE A FEW THINGS TO DO
WARM MARKETS AND NETWORK MARKETING
Make a list of your neighbors, family and friends. This list is called your warm market or circle of influence. Now if you want to be successful at network marketing, leave the people on this list alone! (they are YOUR personal support group) You don't want them to be a statistic on the 97% failure list, for they are not the sales staff that you need. (Later, if they come to YOU and are qualified, then you may train/enlist them!) Network marketing is sales, marketing and relationship building, rolled into one. NOT just blindly "sharing" your product to whomever you come in contact with. Successful network marketing is a learn-able business, that with some courses/mentoring you can become very proficient at. (Again, can be through free mlm training) Without proper marketing, network marketing is just another scam.
TEACHING YOU THESE BASICS
Get some marketing courses, online is usually most affordable, (should be free) that teaches modern network marketing methods. The network marketing courses and/or free mlm training, should cover things like knowing your targeted market, prospecting outside your warm market, websites, capture pages, blogs, ads, etc. These tools are necessary in most all businesses being that the internet is the largest marketplace in the World. To win in this business, you've got to know the rules. Yes, this does take some initiative, but in my book, well worth the trouble.
NETWORK MARKETING IS SALES
Network marketing is about selling a product/service through company reps. Purchasing company produced marketing materials to hand out, (expensive AND unproductive) makes you the consumer not the seller. Being your own consumer does not work! Likewise with purchasing leads list, ads, fliers or going to hotel / restaurant meetings. If you don't know what you are really selling and to whom you are selling to, you are wasting your efforts. Researching network marketing terms and techniques will probably give you a lot of advantages over the rep that signed you up, since knowledge is power! (Get the free mlm training first, before joining anything... This saves time AND money!)
FADS IN NETWORK MARKETING LEADS TO TROUBLE
I think you can see that the "old" network marketing "fads" lead to failure. The reason I call them "fads", is that they only had limited success during a few decades. (The general public wasn't so jaded then and the economy wasn't so tight). Fads only work for a time, because they are not founded on real marketing practices. Real network marketing is marketing and relations building. (Which every good, free mlm training should include.) This hasn't changed throughout the years. The successful basics are the same. Though some network marketing people will tell you that the "old fads" still works today, "Just look at "super rep" they're making a killing, they are millionaires!" Again, "flash-in-the-pans", "fly-by-nights", "LUCKY", "exceptions-to-the-rules" and a lot of other terms that have limited success. NO network marketing company, that wants to stay around for the duration uses those "fads", for their real marketing plan!!
NETWORK MARKETING CAN BE VERY PROFITABLE
As long as integrity throughout the business is being stressed, and a great product/service being offered, the network marketing company stands a good chance to succeed and remain highly profitable.
I know that I have just skimmed over some of the broad terms involving network marketing, not getting into the specifics of each. Each topic could easily be a long paper in itself.
Until next time, I hope You will use this as some of that free mlm training that I was talking about earlier... and let it boost your time and efforts in your network marketing research.
