Network Marketing is a Profession

Written by Rita Rinttila

Network marketing is a profession. In order to master any profession, you need proper training. Often people start a network marketing business with no or only minimal training. The training that network marketing companies teach is often not enough. How do I dare to say that? Just look atrepparttar numbers. Our industry has huge attrition rates. Majority of new network marketers fail to generaterepparttar 122481 extra income they are after when starting their businesses, and many just quit or start a new venture hoping for better success inrepparttar 122482 next one.

What do you need to become a network marketing professional?

First of all, you need to commit to personal development in order to buildrepparttar 122483 correct mindset. You need to dedicate time daily to read personal development books and/ or listen to CDs and tapes to build a success mindset. You have probably heardrepparttar 122484 saying: The amount of money you make will always be in direct proportion to your personal growth. The most successful people have mentors and coaches in various areas of life.

Secondly, your task as a network marketer is to build a huge contact or lead database. It doesnít help to have a great product/service or opportunity, if you donít have enough prospects to share your product/service or recruiting information with. The biggest challenge network marketers face is how to generate quality leads. Network marketing companies teach people various methods to prospect and promote their businesses, e.g. their warm market, talk to anyone (so called 3 ft rule), advertise free inrepparttar 122485 internet and generate leads through your website, place ads in local newspapers, post flyers around town etc. Many network marketing companies also recommend to buy opportunity seeker leadsrepparttar 122486 prices of which range from pennies to several dollars a piece. I personally believe that all of these methods work if you just work them long and persistently enough. However,repparttar 122487 question is who hasrepparttar 122488 persistency and funds to do it? You need a simple methodology that works for you and you truly believe in yourself, and most importantly that is easy to duplicate and teach to your team members.

MLM Success Requires Leadership and Professionalism

Written by Linda J Bruton

MLM can be a viable, wonderful business that enables you to reach any goals in life you wish to attain.

If you want to be successful at MLM, it is time to start thinking of yourself asrepparttar professional that you aspire to be - not as someone who sends out a different hyped-up email every week or works one of those "MLM deals."

I know that you have a burning desire to succeed because you are reading this blog. And because you do want to succeed, it is time to start thinking of yourself asrepparttar 122480 professional that every one of your prospects will expect you to be. The sooner you start thinking of yourself as a professional doing professional things,repparttar 122481 sooner you will become one.

As a professional network marketer - a heavy-hitter inrepparttar 122482 making - you are a leader, an entrepreneur, someone who believes in what you are doing. A leader is a self-starter, not someone who sits around waiting for his or her upline to dorepparttar 122483 work. A leader takes responsibility for his or her own success. They don't blame their sponsor orrepparttar 122484 program when they fail.

There are thousands of very successful people in this business who had very poor sponsors, and yet they are making thousands of dollars a month! (And you can count me as one of those). An MLM leader likes people and is concerned for their success and well being, and this is evident inrepparttar 122485 way they treat their downline andrepparttar 122486 prospects they communicate with.

It is also very evident inrepparttar 122487 programs they choose to promote. If you are concerned aboutrepparttar 122488 well-being ofrepparttar 122489 prospects you bring into this business, you won't offer them scams or get-rich-quick schemes. You will offer programs that they can be proud of, that will offer them an income for many years to come!

A leader is self-confident and enjoys what they are doing. A leader is someone who knows their own strengths and how to take advantage of them, their weaknesses and how to compensate. A leader is a continual learner as well as being a teacher.

Leaders don't wait for some guru to take them torepparttar 122490 Promised Land. They getrepparttar 122491 best map they can find, prepare themselves forrepparttar 122492 journey, and start out a step at a time.

And they keep going, even when it gets rough or they have to make adjustments to their route. I am convinced that most people can become a leader by simply deciding to be one! Once you makerepparttar 122493 decision, you'll start doingrepparttar 122494 work it requires.
