This business isn’t only about making money.
It’s about building relationships.
That’s what master recruiters do.
Now, if you want to build your network marketing business online, here’s what you need to know…
First of all, the benefits are YYYYUUUGE!
You can generate fresh, qualified leads from wherever (and whenever) you please
You can end rejection forever by only talking to people who are highly interested in your offer
You don’t need to drive long hours, your startup costs are low, and your business works for you 24/7—without you ever having to pick up the phone!
The best part is that you don’t need to be “techie” or particularly good with computers to get started.
The 3 BIG, show-stopping mindset gaps are…
1. Thinking success is automatic.
Stop it! Right now!
It doesn’t matter who you are, where you’re from, what color you are, I don’t care.
Success is not going to come easy.
It’s going to take determination, hustle, drive, and consistency.
2. Focusing on your own problems, instead of the needs of your market.
Make it about them.
Become the education-provider, rather than the spammer.
3. Not thinking like a top earner.
You must start thinking like a top earner, even if it makes you uncomfortable.
Don’t worry if you don’t feel like you have value or anything to say.
Because like we’ve said…
Everybody has value to share!
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…
Most of us don’t want to be told what we should do which is why old school network marketing gives our profession a bad name.
Instead, you are going to give your friend feedback that tells her what you have heard her say and you will express the emotions that you have about her choice with Supportive Feedback.
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.
Always be reading/listening to a good personal development book/audio.
Jeff Olson has this rule. Read ten pages a day.
That is part of The Slight Edge that he writes about in the book of that name.
Ten pages will be easy to do. And it will be just as easy not to do.
But if you stick with it you will be filled up with new ideas, new confidence, new mastery of what you are doing.
Our decision to join a network marketing business was a daring decision.
We were aware of what many people think about our profession. In fact, many of us still harbored some of that mindset when we joined.
And even though we knew what others thought, we joined.
That takes courage and strength. But most likely we have exhausted our reserve of courageous strength after calling a few of our family and friends who turn out to be no-men.
So, we need to hang out with more yes-men.
