2 Ways to Make Money In Network Marketing
If you’re new to network marketing, it’s important for you understand that there are only 2 ways to make money in this industry: selling product and getting other people to join your opportunity.
That’s pretty simple, but the challenge is in the execution. How do you get people to buy your product and join your opportunity? That’s the tricky part.
You’re going to have a hard time selling your product to someone if you don’t use it yourself. That much should be obvious. I assume the reason you decided to join the company was because you absolutely love the product. If you joined for some other reason, say to help out your brother-in-law in his business or because you thought they have a great comp plan, you’ll have a very hard time succeeding in the long run.
The reason is because network marketing is a real business just like any other and if you can’t put your whole heart into it during the difficult start up phase, you’ll most likely loose your motivation before you start to see results. It can take months to reach enough momentum in your marketing efforts to start to pay off. Sure that first bonus is great and it can be very exciting and motivating for a little while.. That’s exactly why the network marketing companies offer them to new distributors. But if you want to get that second paycheck, you’ll have to work a lot harder.
Dean and I were recently chatting with someone on Facebook about building his business. He was a very nice gentlemen and I hope we come across him again when he joins the MyLeadSystemPro community. He is so obviously committed to succeeding, but he clearly has not received the training he needs to make it really work. It’s not his fault, he’s doing what he’s been taught to do by his upline: pitch his opportunity to everyone he comes across.
One of the problems with pitching your business to everyone in sight instead of building relationships first is that you come off sounding desperate. Now, maybe your are desperate, but the last thing you want to do is sound like it. If you sound desperate, then people will know that you’re struggling to build your business and that you don’t have any confidence in what you’re doing. This will not position you as a leader, but as weak and needy. No one wants to follow someone like that.
You need to project confidence and a certainty in your abilities as a leader. You don’t have to have a lot of followers yet to project leadership qualities. If you position yourself as a leader, people will follow you.
I hope that was helpful.
Thank You for tuning in.
