How Can I Become Successful In MLM/Network Marketing?
I'll skip the usual search engine friendly introduction and get right to the important information.
#1 Be realistic!
It's tough in an industry driven by hype to keep your feet firmly planted on the ground. Everywhere are Millionaires flaunting mansions and half million dollar automobiles. How many pics of beautiful beach sunsets do you really need to see? You can earn a living with MLM/Network Marketing but it won't happen quickly. If you have a realistic Online MLM Blueprint, your chances for success are much higher.
#2 DO NOT present your opportunity to family and friends!
Referred to by many MLM companies as your "warm" market, nothing could be farther from the truth. If you want to alienate the people closest to you, try to recruit them into your marketing opportunity. To be successful you need to present your opportunity to people who are already interested in building a home business. The best prospects are people who are actively searching for a way to make money online. If any of your inner-circle fall into this category, they will eventually approach you.
#3 Don't be a "Spammer."
"Spammer" has become the go-to term for anyone who markets in a less than ethical manner. Trust is a huge factor in online activity. If you are seen as a spammer, no one will trust you. One of the main things I see currently is spamming Facebook groups. People join groups with members seen as likely to become customers. They pretend to be part of the group when their only goal is to present their opportunity. Be straight with people!
#4 Find a High-Demand, Evergreen product to promote.
One of the big mistakes I see new MLMers make is choosing to promote products that very few people want. Trying to convince people that your product is something they need is much harder than selling something people are actively looking to buy. Offer a High-Demand product people are actively searching and have a need/want for and the conversion process becomes much easier.
#5 Who is your "target" market?
You wouldn't try to sell meat to a vegetarian, would you? Well, some people do just that with their online business opportunities. They try to "sell" to people who are just not interested. Define your target market through research. If you are trying to recruit "work from home" prospects then you would share your message in the places where those people are most likely to hang out. A lot of people say things like: "Everyone wants to make extra money from home." It's simply not true. Don't waste your time and investment on people who are not your target market.
