Relationships, The Foundation of Your Network Marketing Business By Jenean Matthews

Most of us know if a building is not set on a firm foundation it will fall. The same can be said of your network marketing business. The relationship you establish with your downline isrepparttar foundation of your business. You can haverepparttar 122599 financing, a web site with allrepparttar 122600 bells and whistles, and even great products or services to offer but if you fail to establish a relationship with your downline, your business will soon fall.

How do you establish a relationship? Keep in touch, or as we wrote when we signed yearbooks in school, K.I.T.

When a prospect visits your site forrepparttar 122601 first time they are somewhat cautious, as they should be. Joining a network marketing opportunity is a big decision. So is repparttar 122602 experience of purchasingrepparttar 122603 product or servicerepparttar 122604 company is offering. Are they going to get burned? Willrepparttar 122605 product arrive on time, or will it arrive at all? What are you going to do with their personal information? How long willrepparttar 122606 company be in business? These are all serious, legitimate questions. How can you make them feel at ease? K.I.T.

Despite allrepparttar 122607 hesitation that goes into placingrepparttar 122608 order and joining a network marketing opportunity, some people are willing to give your business a chance. Oncerepparttar 122609 order is placed andrepparttar 122610 membership is established, always say thank you. Send an email thankingrepparttar 122611 person forrepparttar 122612 purchase and give a confirmation ofrepparttar 122613 order. Immediately contact repparttar 122614 new recruit and welcome them. Let them know you will be there to assist them and you appreciate their business.

Your network marketing business is just that, a business. Inrepparttar 122615 business world there are a variety of ways you can set up your business. You can be a sole proprietor. You work alone. You arerepparttar 122616 sole decision maker forrepparttar 122617 business. If this isrepparttar 122618 type of business you're interested in, network marketing in not for you. Instead, network marketing is more like a partnership. You should haverepparttar 122619 frame of mind that you are willing to work with others, take time for others and share ideas. No one should feel that they are in this alone. Your financial success is linked torepparttar 122620 success of your downline. The more prosperous they are,repparttar 122621 more prosperous you will be.

I'm not sure why this concept is so hard to get across in this industry. I have heard uplines refer to some of their downlines as deadbeats. They aren't producing so they get left behind. Soon they lose interest and start looking for "another" opportunity. Yes, there may be some that may not have a strong commitment to makingrepparttar 122622 business work but overall I believe there's a communication breakdown. If I tell you to meet me a Walmart and I fail to tell you which one, chances are we will not be going inrepparttar 122623 same direction. If I tell you to meet me at my house and I assume you know repparttar 122624 directions, chances are it will take us a longer period of time to reach our goal. When there's proper communication everyone will have a set of instructions that will take them where they need to go. We have to make sure we are all on repparttar 122625 same level.

How To Dispel Anti-MLM Arguments

Written by Joe Bingham

At times, you'll meet people who you think would be great prospects for joining in your MLM or network marketing opportunity with you. The only problem is they are opposed torepparttar MLM concept and don't want anything to do with one.

So how do you respond to their complaints?

Below is a listing of some ofrepparttar 122598 common argument about MLMs AND more importantly, some good information to combat those arguments.

Argument #1 -- MLMs are just Pyramid Schemes Designed to Rip People Off.

First off, make SURE you are in a REAL MLM that actually accomplishes something because that will be your best argument. You should be making your money from product sales NOT "headhunter fees" or money collected from signing new members. That is questionable and not readily defendable.

A true MLM, however, is simply a distribution system that allows individual peoplerepparttar 122599 chance to create income for themselves throughrepparttar 122600 distribution process. It is shaped like a pyramid, yes, but then what distribution system isn't?

A factory that fills several warehouses, then sends products to multiple distribution centers, then out to hundreds of districts, then thousands of stores, and finally millions of consumers still takes onrepparttar 122601 pyramid shape. That's just how distribution of any product is accomplished.

In an MLM, however, that distribution process pays money directly to as many individuals as can sell product. Now isn't that better for you thanrepparttar 122602 traditional system where allrepparttar 122603 money stays atrepparttar 122604 corporate level?

Argument # 2 -- I Don't Want To Have To Push Products On My Friends and Everyone Else I Know

First, ONLY join an MLM that offers products you believe in. Then, you won't be pushing anything, you'll be RECOMMENDING.

Also, think, I mean really think, about all ofrepparttar 122605 times you've recommended movies, foods, drinks, music, doctors, health products, books, restaurants, cars, equipment, appliances, web sites, games, sports, stores, and many other things to your friends and other people that you've met.

You do it allrepparttar 122606 time, don't you? The only difference is that in an MLM, you get PAID for doing it, and you still are only recommending something that you believe in.
