The beauty of Internet Marketing is that you can use “new” technology to help you create massive leverage inside your business. You can automate certain tasks, use tools to reach a wider audience or even record a video that will play over and over without ever getting tired.
The one thing that a lot of people forget about though, is that Network Marketing is and always will be a people business. That means it is built on relationships and trust.
Yes, the Internet can help you get access to millions of people beyond your borders, but it will never be able to help you close business the way that personal contact with a potential prospect can.
You see, even though the Internet is a great place for information and is really a marvel of the 21st century, there is no denying, that it is also full of crap. There are unscrupulous individuals out there who are just waiting to make a quick buck from poor unsuspecting people. And this is the reality of the Internet market place.
So no matter how amazing your online sales funnel is, there is nothing that can create trust quicker than someone physically calling you.…
I ran across this short story today which was written by Stephen Covey and it just really hits home on so many different points when it comes to having success in Network Marketing that I felt compelled to share it with you today:
Once upon a time a very strong woodcutter asked for a job in a timber merchant, and he got it. The pay was really good and so were the work conditions. For that reason, the woodcutter was determined to do his best.
His boss gave him an axe and showed him the area where he was supposed to work.
The first day, the woodcutter brought 18 trees
“Congratulations,” the boss said. “Go on that way!”
Very motivated by the boss’ words, the woodcutter tried harder the next day, but he only could bring 15 trees. The third day he tried even harder, but he only could bring 10 trees. Day after day he was bringing less and less trees.
“I must be losing my strength”, the woodcutter thought. He went to the boss and apologized, saying that he could not understand what was going on.
“When was the last time you sharpened your axe?” the boss asked.…
You hear that term duplication, duplication, duplication being tossed around like a dirty rag. What does it really mean?!
If it means that you need to fill a room up with hundreds of people every single week, stand in front of them, and present your business opportunity like a professional public speaker, before you gain any real headway in your business, then no wonder the failure rate in Network Marketing is so high.
So it’s easy to see that duplication is not the answer.
Because unfortunately, most of us “normal” people don’t possess the prowess that it often takes to build a huge Network Marketing organization the traditional offline way.
And if you think that’s you, don’t feel bad…
A LOT of people are in the same boat. In fact, 99% of all people are in the same boat!
Did you know that the success rate in Network Marketing is less than 1%. It’s actually more like 0.23%! Something ridiculous like that.
So don’t get tricked into thinking it’s so easy. And I know it can be hard especially when most companies get the successful people walking up on stage telling you how they make 40K a month …
Is this you?!
Are you running around, telling your friends and family about the Network Marketing business you just joined. Preaching how their product is the best thing since sliced bread and badgering them into joining your business?
Are you online posting ads on your blog and on all the social sites saying how amazing your company’s compensation plan is and how anyone who joins is going to be RICH, RICH, RICH beyond their wildest dreams?!
Yup, I’m talking to you.
If you’re doing this (and don’t be embarrassed if you are…) then you need to STOP!
If you are NOT gaining any traction in your business, this is why and it’s also probably the reason why your friends don’t want to hang out with you anymore.
People think this industry has so much competition. And I say PPHHFFFTT! There is NO competition. Especially since 97% of this industry is trying to grow their business using these 2 strategies that make you look like an AMATEUR!
Want to sponsor people into your business like a PRO?
Then all you have to do is follow the step by step process that I lay out in this video I took from …
