How to Guarantee Your Success in Network Marketing and Recruit with a Push of a Button in 5 Simple Steps

130413_lifevantage-366-2

When I first started in network marketing, I was told something that really bothered me…

It was at a nuts n’ bolts training meeting held by a successful distributor in my upline, a wealthy physician with his own private practice, who’d also made over 2 million dollars in network marketing.

He obviously knew what it took to create success in life, or so I thought.

But when I got to his house, a big house in a nice neighborhood, and sat through his training session, I was extremely disappointed.

Basically, for an hour I sat in his living room as he drew on a whiteboard, and listened to him give a big spiel that was mostly “fluff.”

Worst of all, he didn’t teach us anything which remotely resembled a strategy or skill set I could use.

Instead, he kept saying…

This business, it’s not selling, it’s sharing.

You’re simply ‘sharing’ the business with people.

You don’t need to sell; you just need to share these meetings with more people.

This didn’t make sense to me, because he was basically saying that network marketing is a game of chance and didn’t require any skills.

Think about it…

As a physician, he didn’t get “lucky” in his practice. He didn’t get lucky, when he graduated from med school and got licensed in the state of California to practice medicine.

No, he worked really hard, and he learned processes and skills for everything he did, which is how he became a doctor, and eventually became an entrepreneur by opening up his own practice.

That wasn’t easy.

As an engineer, I knew that people in my profession certainly didn’t become successful by luck.

No matter what profession you’re in, I’m sure you’ll agree that…

People Become Successful by Learning Skills and Getting Good at Them!

people-dont-become-successful-by-luck-they-become-successful-by-learning-skillsetsEven though I didn’t know much about network marketing back then, I knew his path couldn’t have been easy…and his success definitely wasn’t random.Luck has very little to do with it.

After that presentation, I craved for somebody to show me a specific process that would help me build my business in a way that made sense.

I wanted the network marketing success this particular doctor had and I wanted to know step-by-step, how he did it.

My frustration with the lack of answers, is what led me to eventually go online and find network marketing mentors who used the Internet to build large teams, using a set of strategies, which they called “attraction marketing.

Along with giving me strategies, attraction marketing solved the #1 problem in my network marketing business—a lack of fresh and new prospects for my business.

And I was able to find them, in a predictable way, without bugging friends and family OR cold prospecting strangers on the streets.

But more importantly, from my mentors, I learned that success in network marketing (or any business) isn’t about luck, or chance, or any roll of the dice.

It’s strategic, skill based and can be done in a predictable way—i.e. it’s about doing the right things in the right sequence, to achieve a specific result.

Now, what I want to share with you in this article are…

5 Proven Strategic Steps I Used to Guarantee My Success…

…and can help you guarantee yours!

Essentially, these 5 things, when done in the right order, can literally create “push button” money — which offers you the ability to recruit with a few strokes of the keyboard on your computer.

Now, I know that sounds a bit “hypey,” but let me prove what I’m saying to you…

Just like any profession, in network marketing you need to learn specific skills. And you need to treat what you are learning with the exact same seriousness that a doctor or engineer treats the skills of their trade.

Here’s what you need first…

Step 1: Find or Develop a Strategy

 23223_blogbanner_061816-07-768x197-1

A strategy is essentially a series of specific steps that enable you to achieve a specific goal.

I say specific in the sense that you can draw the steps on a piece of paper or a whiteboard and map out how you’re going to achieve your goal.

Now, if you’re not being taught any semblance of a short or long-term strategy by your upline or company, you need to run away and go somewhere else!

Seriously, I’m not kidding!

Because you have 2 choices: you can either:

  1. Develop the strategy yourself, which is going to take a lot of money, time & trial and error, or
  2. You can find people who have already figured out exactly how to be successful in network marketing and model their strategy.

Now, personally, I tried to reinvent the wheel and it cost me over $150,000 is wasted money and got me $60k in credit card debt.

It is much better to follow a proven process from an already-successful networker who’s making money and doing it in a way that resonates with you. For me, the strategy, which worked best for me included using online recruiting methods, which fit with my introverted personality.

In summary: find a mentor or company that gives you a concrete strategy for recruiting your first person, making your first sale, and eventually reaching your long-term goals.

If somebody hasn’t provided that, for you in whatever team or organization you’re in, then you either need to find a mentor that is willing to teach you a clear strategy or you can give online recruiting a try by clicking here to learn more.

Step 2: The Strategy MUST Be Simple & Repeatable

23223_blogbanner_061816-08-768x197

This step is the key to duplication in network marketing…

You want to teach your strategy to your downline so they can go out, succeed, and make you some money in the process and the process should be simple, but not necessarily easy.

Now, recall that the doctor I mentioned before told us, “it’s not selling, it’s sharing.”

Even though I was new, I thought it sounded simplistic, moronic, and inauthentic.

After all, I was “sold” (influenced) into signing up for this business, so why was he telling us that we didn’t need to learn to do the same

Looking back, I know why.

  • Issue 1: The doctor assumed we were dumb, or weak, so he made the process of building the business sound easy, because he didn’t want to scare us away by telling us the truth. (i.e. that we had to learn some tangible skills.)
  • Issue 2: He was not doing what he preached. He approached his business in one way (skill based), while telling us to do something entirely different. This meant we couldn’t duplicate, even if we wanted to, because catering to weakness doesn’t duplicate.

As a leader in my company today, I use every single process and tactic I teach to my students and organization.

I give my team the exact same tools I use, and I’m constantly testing, refining, and improving my methods. And if anything changes, I let them know.

That’s my responsibility as a leader.

Besides, developing strategies isn’t the team’s responsibility; it’s the leader’s.

creating-strategies-isnt-the-teams-responsibility-its-the-leadersIt is very likely that your first time implementing a strategy won’t go well and you have to be ok with that, as long as you are committed to improving and learning.I’m not saying that a strategy or tactic has to be a “touchdown” the first time it’s used by a new rep. It just has to deliver results that can be quantified, assessed and be improved on over time.

Tim Sales, was the first OFFLINE network marketer I ever learned from that actually taught me an effective process for building offline, without the internet.

Mind you, this was long after I had already started online, so a lot of what Tim taught on cold calling or cold market recruiting, wasn’t relevant to me personally, but I understood why it worked for his team.

Tim teaches with the assumption that you are willing to actually do the work, learn skills and are strong enough to persevere, the same way I do.

Here at Elite Marketing Pro, we’ve solved the biggest problem in network marketing, which was finding new prospects to talk to every single day, who are actually interested in talking to you about network marketing. But you still need to have effective conversations to bring your prospects into your business.

In summary: The business building strategy must be repeatable & quantifiable so, anyone may perform them, see results and improve over time.

Do. Get Result. Correct. Repeat…

Step 3: Gain Experience

23223_blogbanner_061816-09-768x197

When you treat the strategy you’re learning as seriously as you would the skills you’d learn in any other profession, you gain experience.

And with that experience comes an understanding of nuance, meaning you start learning things that you just can’t learn in a course or in an audio book or training.

Here’s the truth of the matter: if you’re thinking, “I want to make some money now, now, now, now,” I can tell you right now you’re setting yourself up for failure.

I don’t mean to be harsh, but “get-rick-quick schemes” are just that: schemes.

They don’t create sustainable, predictable success because the success is not based on the development of skills.

Unless you treat network marketing as a profession, you won’t succeed.

You’ll also aggravate your leaders, because personally, I worked VERY hard to develop and learn the strategies I teach. I feel disrespected when people think I can teach them a trick for making 6-figures or 7-figures overnight.

It may seem like a trick, because I’m good at what I do & make it look easy, but it does require practice and time, so that eventually it does become easy. (More on this in step #5.)

(Even then, if it takes you 3-6 months to be effective, that’s better than 40+ years at a job you hate!)

So if you’re serious about this whole network marketing thing and you want to be a leader yourself, you’ve got to be committed, gain experience, an appreciation for nuance and develop DEPTH of understanding, which is impossible to attain in any other way.

This is important, because it will help you develop strategies that fit your individual goals and personality.

Sure, fundamentally, everyone building offline or online has the same basic foundation.

However, we all have different approaches, styles, and tactics, because over time, we all come to occupy a slightly different space in this business.

As you implement a strategy, you learn to customize it for your strengths & weaknesses and it becomes your own.

In summary: you gain experience through repetition and you get depth of understanding, and eventually you start modifying tactics and processes so that your strategies fit you, your team, your company, your product, etc.

Step 4: Pay it Forward

23223_blogbanner_061816-10-2-768x197

Once you have a strategy, a depth of understanding, and nuance from following steps 1-3, you’ll likely have achieved success in your business and now you’re in a position to teach what you know through video, Facebook Live, blogging, e-mails, and so on.

By creating a community and communicating with people every single day you’ll “pay it forward,” and not just for your downline, but to the industry at large.

This will do 2 things for you…

  1. People will notice that you’re giving value and other people are benefiting, and your following will grow. This is how we grew our community here at Elite Marketing Pro, by the way.
  2. As you build your fan base, you will create your own personal brand and become a leader, whom transcends any one company or product. This is key to the final step: “push button” income.

In summary: Once you “pay it forward” and develop a following by putting out great value that helps others, you will have a following of people that want to learn more and more from you.

That’s how you create an empire: a loyal community that loves you, and knows you will lead them to good fortune.

Step 5: Become a Force

23223_blogbanner_061816-11-768x197

This is where you get the ability to sell and recruit en masse.

What I do mean ‘en masse’? That means recruiting a lot of people or selling a product to a lot of people, with the push of a button.

That push of a button can be clicking “send” on an email, clicking “start” a webinar, clicking “publish” on a blog post, whatever medium you choose.

Heck, you can even “voice” your call to action on Facebook Live or Periscope and people will go buy your new course or fill out the form to sign up for your opportunity.

Why?

Because they trust you and your community, gives you credibility.

Because you paid it forward and have skills you developed that others would like to learn.

A lot of networkers miss #4 and #5. They miss the part about building a community beyond their network marketing organization.

So if anything goes wrong with their company or their team, they’re stuck. They don’t have a “plan B.”

You want to be in a position where you’re not dependent on anyone but yourself and your own brand, regardless of how awesome your company is.

That’s why step #4, building a community, is so important. It allows you to do step #5 which is becoming a force that no one can stop and you’re able to recruit en masse, at will.

Now what I just shared with you was a 5-step strategy for LEARNING and developing skills.

This strategy should be something you can apply, regardless of whether you choose to build online or offline.

However, if you’d like to learn the online business building strategies I use today to generate 400-500 red hot prospects per day, 30-50 new customers per day and 80-100 business builders per month, click here and I’ll gladly give you my Free Online Recruiting Course, so you may begin that journey.

Regardless of how you choose to build, to guarantee your success:

  • Step #1 is to find a strategy that is proven to work.
  • Step #2 is to make sure that strategy is skill based & repeatable, so you can DO. RESULT. CORRECT. REPEAT.
  • Step #3 is gain experience through repetition so you have an understanding of depth and nuance.
  • Step #4 is to pay it forward so you build a community around yourself.
  • Step #5 is become a force, recruit en masse, and create “push button money”…

… and live happily ever after. ‘Til next time!

Lessons of Failure

business-woman-portrait-1997285

It’s fine to celebrate success but it is more important to heed the lessons of failure. Bill Gates

If you have lived your life, you have experienced failure.

What are the lessons of failure?

There is one HUGE lesson of failure – failure is not final. Failure is not final, unless you quit.

In fact, wouldn’t you say that quitting might be the only failure to fear?

Here are ten famous failures who didn’t quit:

Bill Gates – it turns out he knew what he was talking about in the above quote.

J.K. Rowling – a bunch of publishers turned her manuscript down. One publisher had a daughter read it. She wanted more and the rest is history.

Steve Jobs – started a company; was fired by that company; and then took that company to the top.

Albert Einstein – disregarded as a student, he did what he knew best and revolutionized physics and mathematics.

Abraham Lincoln – he struggled before he was elected as President of the United States.

Michael Jordon – missed more shots than he made.

Steven Spielberg – struggled in school.

Walt Disney – was once told he had no imagination.

Vincent Van Gogh – suffered from mental illness and took his own life.

Stephen King – was a troubled, paranoid child who suffered from nightmares.

If you feel like failure is holding you back, just keep trying – your break through might be just around the corner.

 

 

 

 

Are You Consistent Enough?

That is a trick question.there-is-no-try-you-are-either-consistent-or-you-are-not

You are either consistent or not.

I live in a rural area where businesses struggle.

We have many empty store fronts.

New businesses fill those shells and all too often they do not succeed.

I am a believer in supporting small, local businesses. I am willing to pay more for less; but usually I get more.

I do remember a business that opened in a nearby town. I can’t remember what product or service they offered.

What I remember is that their door promised specific hours.

Twice I made the trip to do business with them at the time they had promised to be there.

And twice they weren’t there.

I never made the third trip.

The only thing I remember about them today is that they lost my business because they weren’t consistent.

That is one of the problems with a brick and mortar business. You have to have posted hours and you absolutely have to be there when you say you will be there.

And that is one of the main reasons I never want to be responsible for a brick and mortar business. I want a little more freedom in my life.

I embrace the freedom that my network marketing business gives me.

I embrace the diverse range of activities and locales that network marketing allows.

I get to enjoy variety only because I embrace consistency.

I have to consistently perform the activities that bring success.

Everyday, whether I feel like it or not, I have a list of actions that connect me with new people and build a business relationship with them.

Being an entrepreneur is my choice for providing income; but not because it allows me to show up for work only when I feel like it.

Being an employee allows for me to call in sick or take a personal day.

Being an entrepreneur means planning for those sick or personal days.

I love it.

It is fulfilling to know that I am delivering on my promise to myself.

And it is key to my success.

How Important Is Reading for Your Child?

You know it is important! I know you know that!

o-child-reading-facebook

I was an avid reader. Learning came easily to me.

My younger sister, Maggie, struggled in school.

Learning was so easy for me that I didn’t realize how hard it was for Maggie.

Maggie was not dumb. The teaching system just didn’t work for Maggie.

My son struggled with learning as well. The teaching system didn’t work for him and he never did embrace learning.

Fortunately, Maggie did. She became a great student – of education. Her multiple degrees and certifications are what qualify her to help today’s struggling students. Her own struggle gives her the compassion to help your struggling student.

Tomorrow night you can learn what Maggie is doing today that will change the way your child reads and learns.

You do not want to miss this.

Maggie has openings for 7 students. Find out if your child is ready for this scientifically proven program.

Meet me and Maggie on a zoom.us meeting tomorrow evening at 6 p.m. Mountain Time. Maggie and I will be on live at 5:45 and the presentation will begin promptly at 6 p.m.

Self-Talk Level V Amendment

Would you say that I am a bit presumptuous disagreeing with a best selling Ph.D. in psychology?

Are you interested in the controversy I have chosen to create?

What, you might rightfully ask, fuels my need to disagree? My explanation begins with first presenting Shad Helmstetter’s  idea:

Level V Self-Talk – The Level of Universal Affirmation (It is . . .)

This level of Self-Talk has been spoken for thousands of year. It is as old as the ancient religions which inspired it. It is the Self-Talk of “oneness” with God. This level of Self-Talk speaks of a unity of spirit, a divine and timeless cosmic affinity which transcends all worldly things and gives meaning to our being.¹

I used Helmstetter’s words to make sure that in my disagreement I don’t misrepresent.

Helmstetter says that Level V Self-Talk is characterized by the words, “It is” and sounds like this:

“I am one with the universe and it is one with me. I am of it, within it, and exist as a shining spark in a firmament of divine goodness.”¹¹¹

That thinking is at odds with my Faith in Jesus Christ who is the Creator of all that there is including me and the universe.

Genesis¹ clearly states that humans and only humans are created in the image of God.

I do need an affirmation from someone greater than me. But it isn’t the universe. It is a Person. i-can-do-all-things-through-chirst-which-strengthenth-me-philippians-4-13-1A personal God who indwells me and has given me many great “affirmations” to empower victorious living.

Here are some of the affirmations that I suggest for those who share my Faith:

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Philippians 4:13

If God be for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31b

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. Psalm 23:1

For me, there is infinitely greater power in invoking the God of the universe than identifying with the universe. I recognize and respect your choice to disagree with me because God has given you that choice. I hope that you will respect my choice as well.

I am curious what you think of this blog in particular. As always, I love to hear from you. I respond to all personal messages. Click here to message me.

¹Helmstetter, Shad, Ph.D., What To Say When You Talk to Your Self, Pocket Books, 1986

²And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. Genesis 1:25-26

Self-Talk Levels III & IV

girl-1722402Self-Talk Levels III & IV correct the pattern of Self-Talk of Levels I & II.

If you consider Level I and II of Self-Talk as defined by Shad Helmstetter in his book What to Say When You Talk to Yourself as diagnostic in nature, you might say that Levels III and IV and what the doctor ordered.

Level III Self-Talk The Level of Decision to Change. ( “I never . . . I no longer . ..” )

Levels I & II of Self-Talk do not work for you, except if you hear yourself using them and determine to make changes.

You are in control. Here is what you do next: start using words like “I never . . . “, “I no longer . . .” Present tense must be used as though what you are .is already reality.

Level III sounds like this:”I no longer smoke.” “I never eat more than I should.” “I no longer put off doing things that I need to do.”

You use this language even if you are still smoking or overeating. Using this language replaces the negative language you have been using and reprograms your subconscious. Eventually, what you speak will become reality.

Here is an example using a smoker who wants to quit. She replaces negative Self-Talk like “I will never quit smoking”; or “I should quit smoking . . .” with “I no longer smoke.”

She will say this even as she lights up another cigarette. She says it out loud even when other people are present. Of course, they will think she is crazy, and perhaps that is part of the motivation to quit.

Primarily, she speaking to herself and her subconscious which will eventually carry out the new programming she is sending it. One day as she says, “I no longer smoke.” as she lights up her subconscious will say, “Really, what is that little white thing in your hand? And it’s on fire!” Soon your subconscious will begin to make sure that you no longer are.

This is a bit simplistic and there is more to it. The book addresses details later in the book.

Level IV  Self-Talk – The Level of the Better You (“I am . . .”)

You use this Self-Talk the least and need it the most! Helmstetter says it is like drawing a picture and handing it to your subconscious says, “This is the me I want you to create.”

Level IV Self-Talk is characterized by “I am. . .” Here are some examples of Level IV Self-Talk:

“I am organized and in control of my life. I am a winner. I am healthy, energetic, enthusiastic, and I’m going for it!”

“I don’t smoke! My longs are clean and healthy. I have no habits which harm me or hold me back in any way.”

These statements remind me of Jessica’s Daily Affirmation on YouTube. It is the Self-Talk of a young girl standing on the bathroom counter. Since it has over 18,000,000 views, you probably have seen it. If not go to YouTube and search Jessica’s Daily Affirmation.

Level IV Self-Talk is the opposite of Level I. It replaces the useless and self defeating language of cannot and never.

There is one level left. I will share that level with my own suggestions for it in my next blog.
