Duplication is one of most important concepts in Network Marketing.
It is network marketer's ultimate dream to develop a system that can be replicated by anyone with average intelligence, just by following exact methods passed on from one generation to another.
But fact is that we're all very unique individuals with very different qualities and talents.
So should we really force ourselves and our downline to become clones, all mouthing same scripts, whether we mean it or not? I don't think so.
In fact I believe its one of main reasons that so many people drop out of this business - because methods used by their upline do not complement their unique personality and character traits.
I truly believe that everyone can be a winner - but not by blindly following in footsteps of our "mentors." You will never be successful if you are not comfortable with doing what it takes.
Here are a few tips that might help to overcome this problem.
1. Learn Basic Skills
We all need to go to school to learn basic skills necessary to find our rightful place in society.
So if you intend to do business online, you WILL need to acquire a few basic skills in internet marketing - using software you need, writing ads, designing a simple website, writing articles, publishing a newsletter.
These are A-B-Cs of marketing that you MUST learn if you want to survive online.
As a network marketer, you will also need to develop a winning attitude and to believe in your own ability to succeed.
But HOW you apply these new-found skills or attitudes may be completely different from way your mentor or upline applies them. And that's way it should be.
