Building a house is something we all have seen done on our street. A blank piece of land is turned into a structure of wood, steel, and concrete. Each piece makes up for the bigger structure of the house.
Could you imagine if the builders showed up the first day of work and they left all their tools at home? The workers need hammers, nails, drills, and saws. These are the basic tools to complete the house.
Building a Network marketing business requires you to show up with a few tools to build your house. Your house is the business you create, that will last years down the road.
1. Your Belief
The first tool you need to sharpen when building your network marketing business, is your belief. Many of us have these false beliefs about money and business. When we were a child our parents would say stuff like. “Money doesn’t grow on trees” or “What do you think I am made of money?” These beliefs get hard wired into our subconscious and needs to be let go.
The belief in your ability to be successful is going to be key in your success. When you believe 100%, that you will never quit until you are one of the top income earners in the company. Then you will have built a strong foundation.
2. Generate Your Own Leads
After you have gone through your warm market of friends, and most of them said no. You have to move on to the next step. Your network marketing tool number two, is generating your own leads. This can be accomplished many different ways.
You can setup a landing page on the Internet, and start collecting emails. These emails will be your list that you can send out daily information. If your company has cards with information about your products, you can then pass them out around town. There are companies that will sell you phone list of people who are interested in home based business. I really don’t recommend cold calling, but some like that.
Getting leads from the Internet is the best strategy in today’s technological world. I like to use what is working the best in today’s world, and not what worked 10 years ago.
3. Get a Phone
You need a phone to call the leads you generate. I know this sounds simple, but many still think they can not pick up the phone. The Internet has some great services that are very inexpensive. Services like Skype and Google voice, will let you use your computer to make calls. Both of these services will give you a phone number, so you can hand that out to people.
4. Create A Marketing System
The fourth network marketing tool is creating a marketing system. A system is what many call a funnel. It’s when you use technology to sift through people until you get to the person who is hungry to make a difference in their lives.
The network marketing system you setup will have different stages. Each stage will weed out more people who are not serious. This can start with a simple website that you give away something of value. Then show a video with another opt in form. Do this a few times until you get to the person ready to make a commitment.
These are the tools you can start right away to help build your network marketing business. Just take action starting right now.
