Being successful in a network marketing business is really not a complicated task. All you need to do is focus on 4 key areas, and with the right attitude and consistent action, your business will grow and grow.
Did you know that most network marketers fail to make any real income?
Is this to say that there is something wrong with this industry?
The problem is that the average network marketer is never taught the skills necessary to be successful in building an income with their business.
Below are the four main reasons for the failure rate in this industry.
M – Money
Most people know that it takes money to build any kind of business. However many business owners simply do not create a monthly budget that they can draw from to continue their marketing efforts over time.
A – Action
Its great that a network marketing business allows you to work only a few hours a day, and still give you the ability to grow a thriving business.
However, the average owner spends those hours just keeping busy and not doing the actions that will actually generate an income.
Real action means that you are communicating your marketing message to your prospect.
To do this most effectively we develop marketing systems that find the right prospects for us automatically.
The key to developing such a system is to learn how to use advertising to ATTRACT people to YOU and YOUR business.
P – Prospects (Or lack there of.)
Simply put we need PEOPLE to market to. The more people we find that are interested in our “thing”, the more sales we make.
The more sales we make, the bigger our network marketing business will grow.
S – Skill
The 3 pitfalls for network marketing business failure that we just talked about have to do with underdeveloped skills.
We must learn to create and manage a budget.
We must learn to take the right action.
And we must learn how to find and interact with our prospects.
This means, that building a network marketing business is doable, IF you take the time to learn the skills you need to succeed.
I cannot stress more the importance of proper marketing training.
Most of us come into this industry with no sales/marketing know how. Unfortunately this also means that we usually can’t rely on our uplines to teach us either. To be successful in network marketing we have to think outside of the box and get some training.
Knowing that you need a well laid plan to achieving your network marketing goals is the first step to success.
With some new skills and the proper network marketing resources, you will be well on your way to building a prosperous business in this industry.
