The following network marketing tips will help you
regardless how long you’ve been in the network marketing industry or which company you’re with… They are great fundamental knowledge to build solid businesses.
After all we’re in a business that relies on
- Doing simple things,
- Doing them often and…
- Doing them repeatedly!!!
Sounds simple I know… because they ARE.
However, like anything else, you need to be educated about the methods of network marketing, if you want to be successful.
Network Marketing Tips #1 – Be Smart About Money
Creating a budget your business as well as your personal life is key to becoming a successful network marketer. Most network marketers aren’t “business owners”… not initially, which makes knowing your limitations that much more important.
You want to have enough money to keep the business running, but also enough to generate new business. Understanding your investments (think of them as such, investments… not expenditures) is vital towards success with your business from a quality and monetary perspective.
Network Marketing Tips #2 – Be The Hunted Not The Hunter
Now this is a HUGE tip.
Do yourself a favor and adapt the “being the hunted not the hunter” approach!
This means you want to learn a way to get the right people to FIND YOU instead of you proactively go after them.
If you have trouble getting people to come to you… laser-targeted, qualified prospects that are looking for your company’s products, services or joining your team, check out the exact system that our team uses to create unlimited supply of leads by leverage the Internet, regardless what company you are with.
When you use this approach, you will have a continuous flow of prospective recruits or customers visit your website. This may be the most challenging aspect of building a network marketing business and can make or break you (recommendation: suck it up and stick with it)… BUT once you master it, you will have gained a skill that will allow you to make money on demand ANYWHERE in the world as I’ve been able to do for years… seriously.
(Pick up a copy of the book that opened my eyes to this concept of becoming the hunted not the hunter and make money at will anywhere in the world.)
If you’re retail-focused, your website should provide everything a potential customer needs to learn all about your products and make a well-informed buying decision. If you’re recruiting focused, your website should provide a lot information about YOU and YOUR team, and what benefits you offer your prospects and the requirements to join your team.
Create a blog to keep your audience updated regularly and learn more about you over time. This will remind people about your business and more importantly turning them from “cold” prospects into “warm” prospects and eventually, “smoldering hot” prospects who are ready to knock down your door with credit card in hand, ready to join.
One thing to note though, is that your biggest asset is your time so don’t waste it.
Even the person with the strongest willpower will find it difficult not to become sidetracked when they work on the Internet.
Be sure to set up a schedule for your work, and focus on meeting your deadlines.
I find that using a old-school calendar or Franklin planner and writing things down works the best for me.
Network Marketing Tips #3 – Check Your Attitude
Look at your network marketing venture as a business, not a hobby. To succeed, you need to be a professional and put in the hours and work that you need to see your business thrive.
Try and illustrate to your prospects that you want them to succeed as much as they do, whenever you are explaining your network marketing plan. You need to help them understand the benefits and positive impacts your system will create to their pocketbook, lifestyle, and productivity.
If you want to really succeed in multi-level marketing, you have to be commuted to helping other succeed. Once you reach this point, you will begin to notice an increase in profits.
Focusing on what your customers need is as important as finding new leads in network marketing. Customer satisfaction is directly linked to the success of your business. Your goal should be to listen to your customers the majority of the time (around 80%) and then talk for the rest of the time.
When starting a network marketing business, create a well drawn-out business plan. This plan should include your specific goals and the path you will take to achieve them. Give yourself firm targets for the numbers of customers, sales and new teammates you want to have, and plan ahead about the kind of marketing campaign will be required.
As was stated in the beginning of this article, networking marketing is a matter of education and implementation of proven methods. Once you have determined an appropriate marketing strategy, you can begin to generate massive profits through your business. If you apply these tips, your campaign should be ready in a few weeks or less.

“Be The Hunted Not The Hunter” – good point!! I went the wrong way a looong time!
That’s exactly right, Christina! Although I still made decent money working my business the other way for a long time, “being the hunted” is a better way. There is no reason to struggle if there is a better way!
