Network Marketing For Believers And Non Believers Alike

Network Marketing For Believers And Non Believers Alike
There are thousands of​ experts out there who will tell you​ how to​ succeed with network marketing .​
Some of​ them really do know what they’re talking about,​ even if​ their message is​ often delivered in​ that rather ‘consultant speak’ manner that makes so many of​ us cringe and shy away.
After many years of​ watching the​ rise and fall of​ ‘the next big thing’ here are a​ few observations for any would be online marketer to​ think about - more a​ case of​ how not to​ go about things,​ which,​ hopefully,​ might save some of​ us a​ lot of​ pain.
1) you​ get very little in​ this life for free - if​ only everyone would accept this simple truth,​ the​ network marketing arena would be a​ happier place .​
By free,​ I’m not just talking in​ monetary terms either .​
There is​ no doubt that the​ internet is​ still a​ place where you​ can find success with minimal initial outlay,​ but for the​ most part,​ the​ people who have had the​ greatest success are those who have put a​ lot of​ thought and/or effort into their business,​ along with some investment .​
You also have to​ add the​ downright dishonest folks,​ who are prepared to​ make a​ buck at​ anyone’s expense and have little or​ no conscience about what they do - trust me,​ there are plenty of​ them out there circling too!
2) a​ business means a​ product or​ a​ service - you​ cannot sell thin air to​ people,​ other than the​ downright stupid ones .​
When the​ next flash website catches your eye and promises you​ all the​ wealth your little heart desires,​ remember that they know what buttons to​ push to​ ignite your interest and talk has always been cheap .​
If nobody is​ expected to​ sell anything,​ there won’t be any money will there? So,​ on​ to​ the​ next step....
3) It’s staggering what some people can be convinced will make them money .​
We mentioned products and services,​ and if​ we accept that they form the​ basis of​ any business,​ there is​ much more we have to​ accept .​
Before rushing into an​ online venture just because it​ says on​ the​ screen that millions of​ people want to​ buy what they are asking you​ to​ sell,​ think about it​ carefully .​
Would you​ want to​ buy what they are selling at​ the​ price they are selling it​ at? I​ mean,​ come on,​ you​ must have known people who have got involved in​ a​ network marketing company and tried to​ sell you​ on​ it​ too; vacuum cleaners,​ cleaning products,​ beauty products,​ miracle potions,​ timeshares,​ beef jerky,​ online shopping malls - the​ list is​ endless .​
I’m not saying that these products are not valid (well,​ maybe the​ miracles are pushing it​ a​ bit) but the​ likelihood of​ them making you​ rich,​ are,​ let’s be honest here - slimmer than a​ very slim thing! So let’s move on​ to​ what you’ll be given for free shall we?
4) a​ web page of​ your own to​ promote your business! Sounds great in​ theory for people who don’t know much about websites or​ marketing and they just can't seem to​ get enough of​ them .​
I​ know we all have to​ learn and start somewhere but I​ say this because if​ it​ weren’t true,​ we wouldn’t be seeing these awful pages with a​ low resolution grainy photo of​ the​ ‘marketer’ either sitting in​ their dingy little living space peering in​ a​ hopefully vacant way at​ their monitors or,​ even worse,​ a​ cell phone snapshot of​ the​ site ‘owner’ with their little rat like dog .​
Remember the​ old saying,​ 'would you​ buy a​ used car from THIS man?' It applies here in​ spades .​
Like it​ or​ not,​ in​ this world,​ image is​ everything,​ so think about yours and that of​ the​ business you​ are trying to​ promote .​
Showing me a​ video of​ some smug fool in​ a​ rented sports car does not make me want to​ be like him,​ nor does it​ inspire any belief in​ what he might be doing .​
Remember that in​ advertising yourself and your business,​ your audience have a​ huge variation of​ aspirations and are looking for someone to​ provide what they need - bragging shamelessly about your own success makes many people want to​ hit you​ upside the​ head rather than aspire to​ your not so lofty ideals .​
If you​ want people to​ trust you​ and your business,​ get yourself a​ domain name,​ learn how to​ build a​ website of​ your own and you​ are already many steps ahead of​ thousands of​ affiliates and would be marketers .​
Oh,​ and when you​ write your ad copy,​ please,​ please,​ please....proof read everything .​
Badly written and misspelled copy makes me click elsewhere faster than anything and if​ people try to​ tell you​ differently,​ don't believe them - your professional image takes a​ huge battering if​ your writing is​ below par .​
5) Which leads on​ to​ a​ quick thought about offline promotion .​
Maybe you’ve seen it​ too - ’Want a​ Part Time Income Of $6000 Per Week?’ plastered across the​ trunk of​ a​ twelve year old automobile .​
Erm…need I​ say more .​
If the​ driver of​ a​ top of​ the​ range Bentley did it,​ maybe you’d believe them,​ but then you’ll never see such a​ display .​
In the​ same vein,​ all those flyers taped to​ light poles or​ slapped on​ your windshield while you're at​ work .​
What am I​ getting at? One word - desperation .​
It will not inspire people to​ flock to​ an​ ‘opportunity’ because it​ smacks so loudly of​ desperation and the​ fact that by believing your sales pitch they too may well be reduced to​ wandering parking lots at​ night,​ furtively slapping flyers on​ windshields .​
Hardly a​ business success model is​ it? you​ are demonstrating only one thing with these tactics - your own lack of​ funds or​ willingness to​ even invest in​ effective advertising .​
Keep your offline efforts professional too .​
If that means restricting yourself to​ business cards and small ads so be it,​ your credibility will at​ least be intact.
6) OK,​ time for a​ little positive relief .​
There are some good opportunities to​ be found online .​
I​ don’t know about them all and space prohibits a​ long list of​ the​ good,​ the​ bad and the​ ugly here .​
When you​ do find something that you​ think can work for you,​ don’t be afraid to​ try it .​
As the​ saying goes - if​ you​ think you​ can do it,​ or​ if​ you​ think you​ can’t,​ then you’re absolutely right .​
Take time to​ learn from people already involved and try to​ find out just how much help you​ can expect .​
a​ good network marketer understands the​ need to​ help others in​ his organization and thus enhance his own business and income - there should be no ‘secrets’ and people have to​ be team focused .​
The vast majority of​ people give up on​ network marketing because they never get any support from the​ ‘team’ who recruited them in​ the​ fist place
7) Once you’ve taken the​ plunge and start to​ work on​ your program,​ don’t be disheartened after the​ first week with no visible results .​
No matter what anybody tells you,​ it​ will take time .​
If you’re looking to​ give up your day job,​ sit on​ the​ beach and watch the​ cash flow into your account while you​ sip Pina Coladas then perhaps network marketing is​ not for you.
8) the​ hardest aspects of​ network marketing are advertising,​ marketing and recruiting .​
These will take up more time than anything else,​ especially if​ you​ are on​ a​ tight budget .​
There are countless solutions on​ offer; some that work and some that don’t and you​ will also spend a​ lot of​ time sorting through them .​
This is​ where having a​ helpful up line will pay dividends,​ so get involved with the​ team and find out how they do it .​
Overcoming the​ skepticism of​ potential customers/members will also be a​ regularly occurring theme in​ your days .​
It’s a​ fact you​ just have to​ accept and it’s thanks to​ all the​ cons that have been perpetrated in​ the​ past .​
Never resort to​ that old enemy,​ desperation .​
Many programs now make things a​ little easier with matrix builders that help you​ to​ grow your business without recruiting hundreds of​ people yourself,​ but this still relies on​ the​ need for an​ active and effective team working to​ gain new customers.
9) Give all your strategies time to​ pay off,​ but if​ they’re not working,​ try new methods .​
Doing the​ same old thing day in​ and day out will produce the​ same results .​
When you​ get new sign ups,​ help them as​ much as​ you​ can and don’t jealously guard your knowledge,​ no matter how hard won it​ may have been.
10) If you​ want to​ change your life,​ network marketing is​ a​ viable model for doing so despite the​ high failure rate .​
It will take work and it​ may be frustrating,​ but people do succeed and there is​ no reason why you​ shouldn’t be among them.
