What are your reasons for choosing your network marketing company? Do you think prospects are looking at the overall company or the product? Or, are they looking for your Leadership Skills and your Team support? If you want to find the right Network Marketing company and quit jumping from one company to the next, read the following for the answer.
What would your answer be? If you are like most Network Marketers, you would probably say "choosing the wrong company."
That is the problem with Network Marketing--choosing the right company and how do you go about doing that? You certainly do not want to bounce around from one company to the next. As we all know, it is not your company or products that people are after, they are after your Leadership.
But, with that being said, nearly every single home business success story starts with understanding two simple facts: your Network Marketing skills are coaching, mentoring and building relationships. Your Direct Sales Company is your product and company.
So there it is: Finding the right Network Marketing team. How do you do that? And, on top of that, how do you find a good company ?
The best mentor and friend that I have found put together a book because he got sick and tired of seeing good people empty their wallets while being told by their upline gurus to "work harder" in a flawed business.
They want you to work harder but do not tell you how other than to go and call on your relatives, prospect neighbors and friends. I don't know about you, but that is not my idea of owning a business.
So how do you find the right company?
Look for great Corporate Leadership. Do the corporate leaders and owners have a demonstrated Track Record of success in building previous businesses?
Who is the Field leadership? Who will be my mentors and how will they teach me to succeed?
Look at the Compensation Plan. Is the compensation plan fair and lucrative for the newest Associate and the most seasoned professional?
What is the timing factor for the company? Is it the best time, a good time or a bad time to get started with a particular company? Numerous red flags go up if it is a "start-up" company.
Beware of any company that offers you the scheme such as "You too can make a Million dollars in a year just like I have done." If it sounds too good to be true it probably is.
Success does not happen overnight. Success is a slow and steady pace. Remember this "Success is a Journey, Not a Destination."
After you have chosen your company, set up goals and accomplishments that you can work toward. Make them attainable. If need be, make them small at first and then steadily make them larger goals. If you start out with big goals first and you do not reach them, chances are more likely that you will burn yourself out and give up. That is not the way to achieve success. Call your Team. Call your Coach. Whoever that person is, they will get you back on the right track.
If you are having problems, step back and regroup. Re-think what you have done wrong, make changes and then step right back into your plan. Do not become defeated when it is not necessary.
Success will come if you take the path of slow and steady. Find someone who is willing to Coach, Mentor and help you build relationships.
As one of the great philosophers said:
"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence.
Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent."
Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.
Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.
Persistence ad determination alone of omnipotent.
The slogan "press on" has solved, and always will solve, the problems of the human race."
