5 Things You Don’t Need To Be Successful In Network Marketing
Among the hardest facts of business that anybody can face is that the fact that it is not everybody that is as enlightened as you are or ready for success. You should not be surprised if some of your family members or closest friends ridicule you, refusing to see your presentation or join your organization.
Some might even question your sanity by asking why someone like you with a “real” job would “go around messing with a multi-level deal”. Others will feel obligated to narrate their horror stories from their experience or the one they heard from others about network marketing.
You will even hear scarier stories. However, you should know they mean well. They just happened to have fallen victim of network marketing lies before joining the business.
So, this is why you should give their “well-meaning” souls a wry smile, genuinely thank them for their input and don’t hang around much longer hearing that stuff.
For you not to regret your decision about joining this business and later join these people in telling similar stories to others, I advise you to first read the horrible truth about Network marketing first.
If you really want to be successful in network marketing, then you need to be careful with the following and also avoid some common mistakes of new distributors. The tips here will help you get started fast in network marketing:
You don’t need anyone’s approval, except yourself. Your spouse may not even approve of your network marketing business.
This kind of initial response is actually a frequent one, but there are lots of people who have successfully built huge organization in network marketing without their spouses. You can’t force everyone to think towards your own direction.
The fortunate thing is that people that initially do not approve of your business will later join you. You just have to give them a reason to. Try your best to avoid the “I told you so” look from them in the future.
Then, they will later come on board enthusiastically and you will see as things really take off.
Oftentimes, a newbie network marketer will get all kinds of good-intention advice from their friends who are yet to or have never built a networking business. If you really want to know how to fly airplanes, the advice on how should come from an expert pilot.
So, the same thing goes with building a network of distributors. Look at your sponsorship line; find someone who has built a large network and get tips from him or her. These are people that can give you effective tips on how to build your network.
Friends & Family in Your Network
Wait. Before you misunderstand me; if you can have them in your group, awesome! There are even families with three generations in their business and it’s such a great thing to behold.
It is just that, most times, your hardest presentation to ever give might be to a best friend or family member. It is just hard to be a prophet in your own hometown.
The network marketing industry is full of individuals who have been able to build their networks without including their so-called best friends or a single member of their families in their team.
Credentials Or Degrees
There have been thousands of people who have been able to successful built their network without the benefit of any credentials, such as a college degree. Networking is really different from other businesses, which is why the rules are different here.
It’s possible and even common, to build a large and successful organization without having any degrees or credentials. This is why anybody can join this business model but there are other reasons why network marketing isn’t for everyone as well.
You like some others, might feel that because your sponsor has an advanced business degree, you also need one too. This is not something to be duplicated and it is entirely unnecessary. If you have a degree, that’s awesome. Just know that it is not compulsory in network marketing.
Perfection Is A Moving Target
Have you, like some people, being bouncing from one company to another, always putting the blame for your failure on the previous ones? Just so you know, the perfect company, product line, or compensation plan is yet to be invented.
However, like every other things in nature, it must evolve. But your job here is to take a close look at the whole picture and if you discover that the pluses outweigh the minuses, then you can get started. If you just sit around waiting for perfection, you will definitely be waiting forever.
Don’t make the same mistake like many novices. They think that they can’t do anything yet, until they have tried all products, read all literature and absolutely understood every tiny detail of the compensation plan.
“When you aim perfection, you will discover it’s a moving target” – George Fisher.
