Learning a Skill Set for Your MLM Business
As you mature in MLM you should get far away from ‘pipe-dreams’ and making money over night. While bumping into the right person or the luck of utilizing a system will help bring all the success in the world to you rather quickly; the numbers don’t lie in how often that will happen. Mature professional network marketers do not live on recruiting friends and family, and they do not turn into fulltime coaches once they have recruited their three to five business partners. Professionals in MLM have done what all professionals have done or do; they go to school to learn and develop skill-sets in order to be the best professional they can be.
Once they have these skills, they actually implement them and from this they set a salary for themselves that can have limits beyond the moon you see in the sky. If you are going to school to be a Doctor, depending on which focus you target there are certain courses and proficiencies you would have to master in order to pass. We would not allow a surgeon who has not mastered his craft to work on us. A divorce attorney is not the attorney to select for a murder trial. For a murder trial you need an attorney that has the skill set to defend you. In MLM people want to partner with men and women who know what they are doing because such a leader has learned and used methods to large success.
Here are the three major things you certainly need to learn very well to operate a successful home based business. You MUST learn how to handle to phone. Even if you are 1000% sure you do not want to call leads, you still must learn how. The reason is simple; first when you develop a great amount of leads online, you may have to take a few inbound calls of people being sure you are who your website says you are. Major prospects may call you to get a few final questions answered about your business. You have to be good with the phone to do this. Second, if you outsource this, you’d better know what you’re doing or have your system together to have to someone else take and make your calls. This will take you having experience on the phone to train others.
The second major skill you MUST adopt is the ability to handle the internet. Online business is huge! You’re going to need to know how to put a website together and utilize all the tools that go with making it a good website. You will need to learn all the marketing techniques out there and tools to get quality traffic to your site so you can take full advantage of the internet. The internet will become 85% of your business if you systemize it correctly. Learning the internet so well is what allowed me to start my very own Local Marketing Company.
The final skill set is mastering salesmanship in print. They call this copywriting (different than a copyright). Copywriting is a skill using psychological triggers to help an interested prospect become extremely interested in order for them to buy your product, service, or opportunity. Special words, structure of your presentation and so on make this a definite skill to adopt. This is an extremely vital skill, in fact, if you learn this very skill well; you will not have a difficult time at all being successful in business period.
In all when you have these skill sets mastered, you will be super successful with your MLM business. Take quality courses and implement them as you learn them. It is literally like watching a baby learn to walk; they wobble and fall to begin but soon they have it down to a tee. Online MLM training, the telephone, and copywriting are your keys to wealth in MLM. Leadership along with those three skill sets is your ticket to a successful home based business. Of course there are details to learn within these three areas, so learn them and begin to implement them.
MLM Business Startup Shock – How To Prepare For It
Starting an MLM business is fun, rewarding, potentially profitable, and exciting. The euphoria you feel when you first sign up is contagious. Youre ready to take on the world.
Keep that enthusiasm going. Stay fired up. Dont let anything stop you. Just be on the lookout for MLM business startup shock. This is that dreaded moment that many new MLMers face within their first few weeks in business.
It is that magic moment when you realize. I can make money with this, but wow this is going to be a LOT of work. Perhaps you have been led to believe that making money in MLM is easy, or fast, and are not prepared for this moment.
The truth is that MLM, like any legitimate home business, demands dedication and hard work to achieve success. It just doesnt happen any other way.
Once youve started your business, unwrap yourself from any hype or get rich soon talk youve heard. Realize that you have a potential gold mine in your hands. Understand that mining that gold will take some time, effort, and patience.
Here is what can happen. A new MLM business builder signs up and soon realizes that starting a successful business will take real time and effort. This is ground zero they have no downline yet.
Think of an airplane the initial energy required to get the plane off the ground is much greater than the energy required to cruise once in the air. Starting a successful business will require a similar effort lots of time and energy at the beginning (to get off the ground), and a smoother more relaxed effort later (when youre cruising).
Dont let the low cost of starting your MLM business mislead you. Sometime when people realize the effort required to get things moving and the money coming in, it can seem much easier to simply write the business off and move on. After all, if you only spent $100 to start your MLM business, that might not seem like much to lose.
Consider if you start a traditional retail business and open a small store someplace. You will work much harder to get that normal business into profit, but since you invested $50,000 to get it started, you wont likely give up easily and write it off.
Respect the potential of your MLM home business you can make as much or more over time from a $100 investment as a $50,000 investment. Plus, with your MLM business, you will have much more freedom and many less headaches.Last 3 posts in Planning for Success in Network Marketing
