Good Questions to Ask Your Successful MLM Upline Mentor
If you have a goal to succeed in your network marketing business, you should really talk to your successful upline and get in their hip pocket. Your successful upline has a wealth of knowledge to share with you. Plus, they have a vested interest in helping you succeed.
In most cases, this will NOT be your sponsor. Your successful upline might be 2-3 levels above you in the hierarchy, or they might be 20-30 levels above you. Keep contacting and interviewing people upline UNTIL you find the right mentor to work with.
I learned a long time ago that if you want to be successful at something, you should go out and find someone who has already done what you want to do and ask them how they did it. You simply model their behavior, so you can get a predictable result. Plus, you can avoid many of the mistakes that they made.
What I suggest you do is start calling people in your upline until you find someone who can mentor you. Once you get in touch with them, here are a few questions you could ask them:
• How do you build your business?
• What book are you reading right now?
• What books helped you the most?
• What’s the biggest mistake you made in your business and how did you overcome it?
• What do you recommend I do right now?
• Who mentors you?
• What can I do to get your attention and help?
• What audios or video training do you recommend?
• If you knew what you knew right now and you were starting all over again today, what would you do differently?
• How do you get leads?
• What is your daily routine?
• How much time did you spend building the business every day?
• How many people have you personally sponsored?
• What should I expect for a conversion rate?
• What can I do to increase my conversions?
• What is the best way to show the plan?
• Should I lead with the products or the business?
• What are the steps to success I need to follow?
• If I want to make X amount per month, what do I need to do?
• What can I do to get duplication in my team?
• What business tools do you use?
All of these questions are a good starting point. Keep a notebook and as you brainstorm questions, write them down for future conversations with your upline.
The bottom line is that your upline is a free RESOURCE for you to leverage. They want you to call them! Call them and introduce yourself and ask them your questions. Whatever you do, LISTEN to what they teach you and go out and IMPLEMENT it. Do not waste their time or go and reinvent the wheel!
