Network Marketing Tips – 5 MLM Survival Tips

All network marketers need network marketing tips in order to survive long enough to reach high levels of success in their business. My goal is to help you understand the 5 crucial things I believe you absolutely need to implement into your business if you truly want to go full-time, quit your job and live the lifestyle of your dreams.

So here we go, 5 vital network marketing tips for survival:

Tip #1: Leadership is Key

Leadership in network marketing is absolutely crucial. People will not want to join you unless they feel confident that you can lead them where they want to go. But, if you display good leadership skills, the flip side is that it really doesn’t matter what your opportunity is. Remember that – people join people, not businesses.

Tip #2: Setting Goals

Way too many times people fail in this business from lack of goal setting. You need to establish goals, write them down and then set up a game plan on how you’ll tackle them. Cutting out pictures and building a ‘dream board’ is often very effective as well. You can do this by simply finding photos of the things that you want (more money, your dream home, your dream car, etc) and putting them in a place where you look at them several times per day.

Tip #3: Time Management

What are goals with out good time management? Most people start part-time and expect to strike it rich in no time. If that is you, and you’re not willing to actually put in the elbow grease that it takes to build a successful business, you may as well leave this industry now. Just like any other business, it takes time to build. There is no such thing as overnight success or ‘get rich quick.’ That being said, you can reach a high level of success much faster than with most other business models, if you have good time management skills. You must be willing to set a block of time each day that is completely 100% dedicated to the action steps you need to take in order to reach your goals. Depending on how quickly you want to go full-time, I recommend 3-5 hours per day.

Tip #4: Be There

This goes along with leadership and you’ll get better as you gain more experience – but you’ve got to be there for your downline. Take the time to help them set their goals and put an action plan together that will help them achieve what they want in a set period of time. Now, that being said, you need to be there, but without babysitting. This is their business as much as it is yours, and if you want it more than they want it, I promise – it will never work. This happened to me with the very first distributor I recruited. I contacted him every day, asked him what action steps he followed for that particular day and if he needed anything. Then, a month later, he quit. He wasn’t into it – I was trying to force him into it. The people on your team that will emerge as leaders will contact YOU for help and put your recommendations into action to build the business.

Tip #5: Learn Marketing

I know this might seem rather redundant, but you joined a network marketing business. A lot of people think this is a ‘sales’ business. In my experience, there is no selling involved, whatsoever. You need to learn marketing and place your marketing efforts in front of the people who are basically out there looking for you, and they’ll call you up and join. Tip #5 is possibly the most important of all my network marketing tips.
