As a network marketing distributor, it is always important to keep
abreast of the current best practices to ensure on-going business and
growth. Here are the 6 best practices that many top mlm leaders are
using to successfully build their businesses.
Always have a advertising budget whether you are marketing online,
offline, or doing a combination of both. Advertising is essential to
your business life and growth. Stick to your budget for a year so that
you will have on-going momentum. At the end of the year, evaluate how
you have done and make adjustments as needed.
Keep in contact with your team. You can touch base with them on a
regular basis by phone or by email. This is an important best practice
strategy to implement, especially for those on your team who are
serious team builders. Your team members joined, hopefully, because
they know, like, and trust you. This doesn't stop after they join you,
so keep in close contact. Once your team grows, you likely will not be
able to talk and work with everyone 1:1. However, you can still work
closely with your top leaders and teach them how to work with their
people. This ensures strong support throughout the team.
Be consistent with lead generation. As a network marketing
distributor, having a constant influx of interested prospects in your
pipeline is necessary. It is also important to make sure that the
system you use to attract prospects is duplicatable. In other words, it
should be so simple that a veteran or someone just starting out can use
Build leaders and make them successful. You want to hear from your
business builders, "I'll do whatever it takes", and not "Well, I'll
just try and give it a shot." The second response usually means if
things don't work out for the person, they very well may quit. Leaders
also make sure their distributors order products. They never complain
to their upline or downline, and have their own aspirations, goals, and
drams. True leaders also will run a meeting if you are away. You want
to build leaders with strengths such as these on your team.
Have a written plan. As a professional network marketing
distributor, always write out your plan and how you desire to achieve
your goals. Do this on a weekly basis, work it, and then review it at
the end of the week. If you are not satisfied with how things turned
out, make adjustments for the following week.
Discover the marketing practice that works best for you and become
really good at it. This may be article writing, blogging, creating
on-line videos, e-zine advertising, etc. If you are not sure what you
want to do, implement what is working for others until you find what
works best for you.
Becoming a successful network marketing distributor and leader does
involve following the best practices others are using with great
success. Study them, implement them consistently, and watch your
business experience on-going growth.
