There dozens of reasons why any one individual might not be
successful with his/her network marketing business… or any
other business for that matter.
Here are a few that I can think of right off the top of my
NOT TREATING IT LIKE A BUSINESS…
Network marketing or
distribution of a product or service. It is a “business”
in every sense of the word. Many new distributors do not
realize that all the same skills and dedication to effort,
that are required to be successful in any business, are
needed in their
Unfortunately, this industry has the reputation of making
it sound too easy. Distributors, in their eagerness to build
“any” type of organization, paint too rosy a picture to
convince a prospective distributor to come aboard. This is
a disservice to the industry, the recruiting distributor,
and to the prospect. Experienced and successful distributors
do a lot of “sifting & sorting” to find the right prospects
for their organization. They require that the prospect jump
through a lot of qualifying hoops to become part of the team.
NOT BEING TRAINABLE…
If you cannot, or will not, take coaching and instruction then
selling skills are often the worst choice you can make for
potential team member. They often think they must “re-invent
the wheel” to conform with their selling experience. Your
successful upline “knows” how to work your business. Follow
their lead and duplicate the already successful system.
POOR CHOICE OF UPLINE…
Your choice of your upline sponsor is critical to your success.
Most new distributors give little or no attention to this important detail. If you sponsor is not a good trainer, or is not willing to implement the systems necessary to support YOU… then you have the wrong sponsor. Your sponsor, in the truest sense of the phrase, is your “partner in success”. A bad one can stifle your success… a good one can skyrocket your profits and greatly shorten our learning and selling cycle.
If you have a sponsor who is not serving your needs then work upline until you find someone who will give you the support you need…and have every right to expect.
POOR CHOICE OF COMPANY/PRODUCT…
Always look at the product first. If you would not “willingly” buy the product and enjoy it’s benefits… why do you think anyone else would? Marry the product with your own interests and needs. If you are interested in wellness, health & fitness, etc. then select a company who has a leadership position in these product lines. Don’t try to sell something you can’t get enthusiastic about… and which does not fill a proven need in the marketplace. Never mistake the “comp plan” for the opportunity… the opportunity is in the product. The most lucrative pay plan in the world will not pay you a dime if
you cannot sell the product… and the customers do not willingly re-order.
NOT DEALING WITH CONSUMABLE PRODUCTS/SERVICES…
Your success or failure with any
YOUR OWN LACK OF DISCIPLINE & PATIENCE…
No business becomes successful instantly.
YOUR UNWILLINGNESS TO COMMIT MONEY & TIME TO BUILDING YOUR BUSINESS…
Building any business requires a certain commitment of time and money to succeed. You must make available a minimum number of hours per week to “work” the business… and you must be willing to invest the money necessary for advertising, supplies, lead generation, etc.
