Job – Treat Network Marketing as One Because It Is

In Network Marketing You Do Have a  Job

Today is one of those days when I am angered by the attitudes and conduct of some people! How on earth does one expect positive results when they put zero effort? It truly boggles the mind!

When people work for someone else they call it a job and they are proud of it.

When people fork out thousands or millions of dollars to set up a conventional brick and motor business, they show up seriously and proudly and treat the venture with the same respect they would a job.

When people become network marketers, they sign up, sit back and expect miracles to start happening. For some reason they expect money to flow into their bank account without any effort on their part.

Are you that kind of network marketer?

Act Employed Because You Are in a Job

As a network marketer you employ yourself. So start acting like you are employed. Treat your business like a job from the onset, especially when you start! How do you treat a job?

  • Show up when you must, not whenever you feel like it.

    Define your working hours. Are you putting in 2, 3 or however many hours after your regular job into your business? How many days a week are you working those hours? If you are full time, how many hours a day are your official working hours? At your job you do not rock up when you feel like it. You show up when the boss says you show up. Act like you will be fired if you do not show up.

  • Have structure for your working hours.

    Be clear on the activities that constitute your work routine. If you do not know what to do you will do nothing. Define your KRAs, Key Result Areas and hold yourself accountable for delivering specific timely results in those KRAs.

  • Do not drift and allow anything to distract you.

    In a job it is possible to apply for time off and be denied and you accept it. Yet for some reason as a network marketer any and every situation that calls you away from your work is important and warrants time off. Why? Because you are doing a “thing”, not a business or a job. Revisit your company’s compensation plan to remind yourself how much potential income awaits those who put in the work.

  • Have a Defined Work Area.

    Your home is a dangerous work environment. It can easily pull you away from your planned work into what is going on in it. That is why it is important to define your dedicated and sacred working space. Seal a deal with your family to not defile your time and space once you close n that door. Just like they cannot casually walk into your office at the job, they should not do that into your home office.

  • Respect the Office Hierarchy.

    You are all corporate roles rolled into one and each one of them have their place and they must shine! As the CEO, set the vision of where the business is going in the short, medium and long term. As the section manager fill up the calender with activities and appointments and work with your team of other Independent Managers. As the floor worker obey the calendar, dig the trenches and deliver results, with your calendar being your direct supervisor. In the earlier days of your business, trench digging forms the bulk of your roles and that’s what urks many new Network Marketers.

  • Respect the Value of Work.

    Pay checks go to those who work, not to those who hang out in network marketing. Money is a commodity try that requires your b time and effort before it can land into your bank account. Never forget that. Work Hard. Do not be lazy. Avoid the entitlement syndrome. Never check your bank balance without working for the money that you expect to find in it.

It is certainly your job to make your network marketing business pay you the full potential that your company’s compensation plan has. Now get to work or get fired!

Inviting – The Rate Determining Step in Network Marketing Business Growth

Today I am talking to you about inviting and its pivotal role in determining how fast your Network Marketing business grows.

I know that at some point or other, we all come​ to a slump in business growth. You start asking or trying to think: How can I make things start happening? How can I pick up the pace all over again? Remember the most important skill.

Let me talk to you like the chemist that I am. When we talk about a chemical reaction or process, there is step, a very critical step in the whole process of a chemical reaction that we call the Rate Determining Step. Now that rate determining step, no matter what you do, unless you optimize that step, the reaction is going to be only as fast as that step is. So, there is need to optimize it and speed it up and make sure that it is fast enough within the boundaries of safety of that reaction.

Now looking at what it is that we have to do to grow our network marketing businesses, I would say when I look at the entire process, the rate determining step is INVITING. Unless you can invite people and get them to sit down, and look at your presentation or look at your opportunity or sample your product, there is no way that they are going to know that your product or opportunity exist.

So, I would say sharpen your skills of inviting. It is very important to know how to invite properly and do it fast, frequently.

Inviting Etiquette

What’s important when you are inviting is to leverage the relationship. You don’t just meet someone and straight away invite them to look at b your opportunity. First build a relationship. Listen as you are talking and chatting to each other until you get to a point where it is appropriate for you to put across the invite.

When you are inviting, invite them in such a way that you don’t present while you are inviting. Invite them so that they will create the time to sit and watch or listen to n your entire presentation. The minute you start telling them even a little bit about what you want them to see, they are going to prejudge already. People have got so much prejudice.

I know there are people who are prejudiced against going/coming to see information that they do not know anything about. Those are the people that you do not want or need on your team. For somebody who believes in you, with whom you have a credible relationship, and you are telling them about an opportunity to have a look at, they should trust you enough to go.

Quick pointer, in fact, do not use the word opportunity, because the minute you’re ​inviting them to have a look at an opportunity, the barriers start to come down. They will be like “I am not looking for an opportunity.” They will miss out on other aspects of m your product or opportunity that they would have understood had they seen the whole presentation in one sitting.

Inviting Properly

So how do you invite them? You have an idea that you want to run by them. You have a concept that you want them to have a look at. For somebody who is really a normal, balanced individual, who is on the lookout for things that are happening around them, when you tell them about an idea or concept that b you want them to n evaluate for themselves, they would be open-minded enough to come and have a look.

If somebody still insists on you telling them what it b is, then they don’t have enough faith in you or you do not need them on your team. Chances are they will bring that attitude with them into the business and they will find it difficult to invite people the correct way.

In the video below, I give you how to do inviting properly and sharpen you to speed up the rate at which your​ business grows.

How was that? Did you find it useful? Share it with your team if you want them to accelerate growth in their own businesses.
