Five Keys to Network Marketing Success

five keys to mlm successWhat is the first thing you need to do when you start your network marketing or MLM business?

You should think things through and create a plan for success.

Without planning for success, your network marketing business will tend to just drift along. If you want to build a strong business and make a nice income, good planning is definitely required.

Your success plan will include both mental and physical actions.

The physical actions include:

  • getting organized
  • deciding how you will generate leads
  • planning how you will present your business
  • creating a system to follow-up with your leads

The mental actions are where you:

  • gear your mind and attitude up for success
  • work on your beliefs and eliminate negatives
  • acknowledge challenges and obstacles you’ll face
  • prepare to overcome all challenges and obstacles

Let’s touch on some of the mental preparation that is necessary for achievement. To build a strong and profitable business, there are five beliefs you must hold.

First, you must have faith in network marketing as your vehicle to financial success. You must be convinced that this is a legitimate and powerful way to make money. You can’t wait to tell others about it.

If you feel hesitant about telling someone that your business is about “network marketing”, you need to work on that attitude. That hesitation suggests that deep inside you have some doubts that need to be resolved.

Second, you need to understand that some of the worst scams will call themselves “network marketing” or “MLM” in an effort to look legitimate. You should understand that these scams are not a true picture of what your business really is. You’ll know what the difference is. You should always be prepared to explain the difference when asked.

Third, you must believe in your products and the company behind them. Do you believe your products are excellent and offer a great value? You should be your own best customer. If you’re not using your own products, how can you testify to others about their quality and effectiveness?

Your products are truly the foundation of your business. Without the right products, no amount of payout or bonus percentage will mean much in the long run.

Fourth, you must believe in the potential and value of other people. You should feel that your upline is on your team and solidly behind you. You must have faith and believe in the potential of those on your downline team. Each one is potentially a future leader in your company.

When a member of your downline team calls on you for help, believe in them and support their efforts. Some will seem to lack potential. Be patient. Bear in mind that many have risen from nothing to wealth with a little help and coaching.

Finally, you must believe in yourself. You must know in your heart that you are in the right business. You must have reasons for building your business, goals for achievement, and the deep internal belief that you can make it happen.

There should be no doubt. You should have a deep sense of conviction that you are in the right place, doing the right thing.

If you master these five beliefs, and combine them with a proven system for network marketing success, you will be a winner and achiever in this business!
