A good friend recently enrolled in a network marketing company and asked me what he should do immediatly that would make the greatest impact on his future success. "Easy", I said. Do these 4 things and you will be on your way to success:
- Get crystal clear about what result you want to create through your network marketing business. Creating success in anything is: massively difficult, incredibly frustrating, and horrifically challenging! Remember that, for every prize there is a price. And for every price there is a prize. You need to know "why" you would be willing to rise above it all, make the necessary sacrifices, and pay the price to create success. Committing to a clearly defined passion gives you the Strength, Power, and Might to do the hard things when the easy thing is available.
- Meet your up-line mentors. In the beginning you will rely heavily on your up-line mentors. They have experience, knowledge and skill that you can leverage to help you earn as you learn. Critical mistake #1 most network marketers commit is thinking they are, "bothering", or "being an nuisance" to the up-line. Your up-line gets paid to help you. They get paid even more when they help you get started right.
- Install and use your customer relationship management (CRM) system. On the first day. A CRM like BizRunner can be your best friend because it helps you move prospects through the enrollment process without the danger of anyone slipping through the cracks. You can enter names electronically in multiple ways and track their progress from contact throught enrollment and even when they are team members. You can even get, "Just in Time Training" and pre-formatted text and email messages for you to use to get started quickly.
- Contact 100 people in the first week. I know some organizations tell you to make a "top 50", or "top 25" list. And contacting 100 people in the first week will put you on the path to empire builiding faster than anything else. You have multiple ways to contacting those you want to expose your product/service and income offering to. You can: call, drop-in/drop-by, email, text, message... Using all of these methods gives you the power to easily extend your reach to 100 people in the first week.
