Network Marketing Tips for You to Climb Up the Success Ladder

An individual involved in network marketing requires brilliant tips for him/her to rise above the competition. Just like any other business model, multilevel marketing needs a lot of patience and commitment. It also requires a deep understanding of the entire industry and how it works. An added ingenuous strategy will also help your business stand out from the others. In every network marketing opportunity, you try to think of yourself as an individual who is competing with other professionals outside the company and even those inside the firm as well.

As an independent entrepreneur, you get to compete with other distributors registered in various firms or organizations. It would be vital to attract the right type of people into your business empire so that you can generate the maximum amount of sales which will help you bring your current position into the next level of the opportunity ladder. But how do you get to attract people in signing up for your organization?

Here are 5 easy network marketing tips to help you move your way up to your career’s horizon.

Be a ‘real & true leader’.

A charismatic and effective leader is someone who never fails to get the crowd’s attention wherever he/she may go and in whatever circumstance he/she might be in. Becoming a vibrant and efficient leader in the network marketing industry is indeed crucial. People join network marketing firms not because of their compensation plans or products. People want to join real people.

Establish your marketing goals.

It would be important to set up goals to help you determine the things you want from your network marketing business. Draft short and longterm goals in a piece of a paper so you can regularly check them as you go.

Genuine and untainted interests.

It would be crucial for you to have that genuine interest and passion for your networking marketing business.

Responsibility

Take responsibility for your business dealings. Be a professional who keeps all your appointments on time. Punctuality is an essential factor when climbing up that success ladder.

Patience and Flexibility

Try to stretch your patience an extra mile longer and be flexible. Things constantly change and more often than not, you need to live with the changing circumstance for you to accomplish your goals.

Top 5 Network Marketing Tips For 2012

Now that 2012 is here many marketers are looking for new ways to market their business in 2012. So for 2012 we have come up with our advanced, hot, new, top 5 network marketing tips. We looked at 2011 and examined what went well and what didn’t in our network marketing business and then came up with our own goals and strategies and business success tips.

1. Decide who your “avatar” is. Your avatar is your ultimate client. Think of who that person is and how you can target your marketing to interest that person. As I think about who our avatar is, I think of what would interest them, how I can help them solve their problems, and where would they go looking for solutions to their problems. When we first started our network marketing business, everyone was a potential customer (they probably felt more like targets), and a lot of people will still tell you that, that is true. But what we have found is that talking to only interested people left us a lot less frustrated and a lot more successful in our online business. One of the aspects I love most about network marketing is how you can use your own creativity to decide how you can meet and solve your avatar’s problems.

2. Attraction marketing was another thing that worked very well for our network marketing business in 2011. With attraction marketing we expanded on our decision to market more specifically to our avatar and then to focus on helping them solve their problems through our blog posts, articles, Facebook posts, and videos.

3. One of the best things we did for our business last year was set a specific schedule for our business with goals for each day as well as a start and stop time. A common mistake is to have a start time with no stop time. We have learned that the stop time is important in helping you stay focused. This worked very well last year and we will continue to set a schedule, prioritize our daily list, and continue with both short-term and long-term goals.

4. I also have found using a timer and working in 50 minute time slots helps me stay focused so I will continue using this strategy in 2012. Easy enough!

5. Learn by doing. It’s hard to learn how to be an entrepreneur any other way. You can supplement your learning with books, live events, coaching, but the real nuts and bolts of your learning will come from doing the daily actions. We learned we had to go out and try new things and not be afraid to fail. Some of the things we tried did not work, and some of the things we tried, like video marketing definitely required a lot of trail and error, frustrating moments and some laughing at ourselves as we looked back at some of the videos we shot. Now video marketing has become one of our favorite ways to promote our network marketing business.

Determine your “avatar,” use attraction marketing, and set your daily schedule. Determine your stop and start times for your daily projects. Determine your goals, your daily goals, your short-term goals and your long-term goals. Learn by doing, don’t be afraid to make mistakes, and 2012 will be your best year.

Network Marketing Tips: 2 Questions for Your Prospect After the Opportunity

We all know of the expression, “close the deal.” Especially in the network marketing industry, you must be able to close the deal with a prospect.

I am not an expert in sales, but I would like to share with you this network marketing tip, specifically 2 key questions you must ask your prospect once they have seen your opportunity.

First, let’s qualify what I mean by, “once they have seen your opportunity.” These questions should not be asked until the prospect’s second exposure to the business opportunity, with one of the exposures having been seeing a video or formal presentation.

I believe a person is not able to provide a correct response to your questions until they have seen your entire business opportunity. It’s not enough that the prospect be only exposed to an informal meeting or something similar.

1. Just after your prospect has seen your network marketing opportunity, ask the following: “On a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being “I’m not interested” and 10 being “sign me up right now,” where does your interest lie?”

Nowhere in this comment do you read anything about asking the prospect what they think. Don’t EVER ask them that as it may be the worst question to ask. By doing so, you are opening up the Pandora’s box to all that is negative.

What does that mean? We are all programmed to be negative. When you ask an open-ended question such as “what do you think?” no matter what positive aspects existed on the opportunity, the prospect will only focus on the negative. This line of questioning may result in the prospect talking themselves out of your network marketing opportunity.

Returning to my question with respect to the scale of 1 to 10. By asking your prospect this question, you are asking them to be specific. They must now consciously decide on an answer to your question. They will give you an answer as they do not want you to think any less of them by not doing so.

This question also allows you to determine right away their interest level. If they provide an answer under 10, I would not devote too much time with them. Answer their question(s) and then move onto the next person. If they answer anything above a 5, then you have a legitimate chance to recruit this person. They may only need more information or want to consult with their spouse before joining your network marketing business.

2. No matter what figure they provide, ( If it’s a 10 and if that happens sign them up) you must then ask a follow-up question that may be more important than the first. This follow up question is placing the ball in your prospect’s court to be specific and it’s also telling the prospect you are willing to help.

The next question is: “What must I do, or what question can I answer, for you to become a 10?” Listen to what they have to say and then provide them with the information.

Once you have, ask them the first question again to see if their answer has changed. If it hasn’t, give them time before you follow-up again. Once you do follow up and their answer is still the same, ask them if they are ready to become a network marketer and if they are not, move onto the next person.

If after you ask them the first question again, and their answer has changed to a higher figure, then proceed to question 2 until they are ready to sign up or you are ready to move onto the next person.

I hope this information helps. If you like what you have read, please feel free to share it with others.

Wishing you great success.
