Eight Ways You Might be “Torpedoing” Your Own Success

You’ve been building your network marketing organization, generating some leads, getting some sales, plugging right along.

There’s at least a little evidence you’re doing something right.

But your cash flow could be better, you could use a few more high-performing reps on your team, and predictable, consistent results are still elusive.

If that’s accurate, let me ask you a serious question…

Do you ever feel like there’s something preventing you from being as successful as you could be?

Look, even the heavy-hitters in this business ask themselves that very question, realizing that…

Are Facebook “Likes” Important for Marketing Your Network Marketing Business?

Okay, here’s the deal…

Likes are CRITICAL to you when you first start your page!
You might know you need about 100 likes on your page before you can start advertising.

Now, the reason for that, if you’re not aware, is there’s a lot of dodgy people out there in “Internet land.”

They’ll set up a page and want to advertise straight away.

It’s a huge red flag to Facebook if somebody sets up a Facebook page and starts advertising straight away, yet they have no fans or followers. 

So, you want to make sure you get those 100 likes first before you do any advertising!

The misconception that can happen, however, is an over-emphasis on how important likes are.

Now you can make a difference in your friend’s life with Helpful Questions. 

What is a Helpful Question? 
It is a directive question you ask that cannot be answered with a yes or no. 

You want to direct the conversation in the most helpful area for your friend. This is not where you pick up the agenda you have released. 

But since you have been using Reflective and Interpretive Listening you have learned what is on your friend’s mind. 

Now it is time to dive deeper with a Helpful Question. 

This requires curiosity. You may be reluctant to follow your curiosity. You may have been conditioned to ignore your curiosity because it is considered rude. 

Now you can learn to hear hidden messages using Interpretive Listening

You know that communication is much more than words. You learn what is being communicated by body language and tone of voice as well as the spoken words. 

You are not only learning but if you use Interpretive Listening well, your friend will more clearly understand what she is thinking. She will also learn how she sounds to others. 

As this happens you are opening the door to true communication. 

When you listen, your friend listens too, if you use Reflective Listening

One of the benefits of Reflective Listening is to put your sister or friend at ease. If they know that you just joined one of those things, they know what is coming. They may not want to join you, but they don’t want to say no either. 

By Reflectively Listening, you begin to release your agenda.  

They will sense that and realize that they can say no.  

It may make it easier for them to eventually say yes. 

Our biggest fear in branding ourselves is the question: If people KNOW me, will they LIKE and TRUST me?

Maybe our problem is that we do KNOW ourselves and we know that sometimes we aren’t very likable.

Welcome to the human race!

This is one of the best reasons for branding yourself. You get to work on who you are.

You will get to KNOW yourself! And I promise. You will get to LIKE yourself. And as you do this before the whole world (oh so scary, I know) they will be able to TRUST you.

And when they KNOW, LIKE and TRUST you, you will be far more productive for your company than any SpamBot.
