Network Marketing – How Small Steps Can Make It Happen

achieving success in network marketing can come in small stepsAre you building a network marketing home business, and feel overwhelmed with all the things you know you must do in order to make money and achieve success?

If so, don’t feel like you’re alone. I believe that everyone who has ever worked a home based network marketing business has felt this way at some point. You have probably been through some training from your upline, and have an idea what you need to do. It might seem overwhelming. If you have high ambition for your business (a full-time income, for example) the “light at the end of the tunnel” may seem out of sight.

A common problem is that many people in network marketing businesses also work full time at regular jobs. With children and other important family obligations added in, the amount of effort required to “make it” may seem daunting and perhaps out of reach at times.

Here is a secret that successful people have known for ages, but you really don’t hear it a lot.

Small steps forward, on the right path, will get you where you want to go.

That said, if you’ve chosen your network marketing business wisely and feel comfortable that you’re in the right place, you first need some direction. Get with your upline team and let them help you create an action plan.

Be honest with them about the time you can commit to your business. Plan action steps that you can do each day. Even on your busiest days, plan something that will help grow your business. Call a prospect or two, or send out a few personal email follow-ups to people who’ve expressed an interest. Something – just make sure it reaches out to a real live prospect, because that is how your business is built.

On days when you have more time, do as much as you can. On the days when there is no time, do something anyway. The idea is to create momentum and continuity. These two things will help you keep going.

When you don’t do something for your network marketing business on a given day, it gets easier to do nothing the next day. Soon, you’ll be able to make all manner of excuses and eventually you may reach a point where nothing is happening. There is no growth. You aren’t sponsoring anyone.

Do something for your business every day. Generate momentum. Establish continuity. Two things that can make all the difference. Taking small steps might not get you where you want to be as quickly as you would like, but moving forward at any pace is always better than the alternatives – maintaining status quo or dropping back.
