6 Tips to Transform Your MLM Business
Today, I want to share six of my best tips on how to transform your MLM Business. These are helpful lessons I have learned during the past 17-years in this industry. They are listed in no particular order.
# 1 In our business, you can take the shotgun approach or sniper approach. Both methods work, and both have pros and cons. The shotgun approach is when you prospect everyone and anyone. On the other hand, the sniper approach is when you focus on a very distinct target market, or group of people. I personally use the sniper approach. I believe in picking a target market and focusing on them.
# 2 Drive it deep. Always work at the deepest level in your organization, with the newest, most excited distributor. Build your business from the bottom up. Light a fire in the basement and watch the heat rise. I learned this lesson from Dale Calvert and Don Failla.
# 3 Inspire your leaders, rather than be their boss. If you are fortunate enough to have leaders on your team, encourage them no matter what. Don't try to force them to do it your way. Don't try to control them. Be grateful you have leaders and be their biggest cheerleader, whether they follow your system or not.
# 4 The fastest way to lock someone into the business is to help them sponsor one or two of their prospects quickly. You have about 48 to 72-hours max before someone decides to mentally quit the business, or stay. Help people get a quick, positive result, and the likelihood of them sticking around longer increases significantly.
# 5 The first year in any new business is difficult. If anything, the goal your first year business is to learn and survive. In the beginning of any new business venture, you make VERY LITTLE money for the effort you put in. That is normal. However, as you stick with it, and time goes on, you can end up making MUCH MORE than the time you put in. Each year you stay in a business, it typically gets easier.
# 6 Every leader and successful person in our industry does things differently. There is more than one right way to build a successful network marketing business. Have a system for your team to follow, but encourage and support everyone, even if they want to do it their own way. You will quickly discover that your best people do not use your system anyway.
