Inevitable MLM Mistake(s): How to Recognize and Avoid Them

MLM Mistake #3 - Incomplete Chicken ListLet’s face it, Network Marketing is a successful business model. If it wasn’t, millionaires would not exist in this industry, and yet, they do. However, there is a lot of trial and error that occurs during the learning phase, typically the first 90 days of one’s career in an MLM. There are several mistakes that can be avoided and save a new MLM recruit a ton of headaches by avoiding these five MLM Mistakes!

MLM Mistake #1 – Quit too soon

Don’t quit before the magic happens. You have decided that this opportunity is one that can be beneficial to you whether for the products like Isagenix or the income potential. There is a reason you joined. The first, most damaging MLM Mistake a new MLM’er can make is too quit before they see any success. DON’T QUIT!

MLM Mistake #2 – Reinventing the wheel

This is a complete and utter no-no! Work the program the way it was designed because the program works! These programs are tried and true and were developed by people that are making 6 and 7 figure incomes. Avoid the MLM mistake of trying to work the program your own way. Work the program, the program works!

MLM Mistake #3 – Incomplete chicken list

This is a huge MLM Mistake that can be easily avoided. Do not prejudge anyone on your chicken list (first people to see list). Talk to them all and add everyone you know to the list. Fear is the major motivating factor for an incomplete chicken list. Don’t be a chicken, get help from your mentors and upline and COMPLETE the list!

MLM Mistake #4 – The lone wolf syndrome

This MLM Mistake comes in the form of the know-it-all. The individual that feels that they do not need to attend events, participate in conference calls, complete their training, attend conference and other national functions. We live in a very negative world and there are plenty of people that are more than willing to discourage you and steal your dreams! Don’t do this alone. You are in business for yourself, not by yourself. Attend and participate in everything you can in order to stay positive and focused on your dreams and what it takes to make those dreams happen.

MLM Mistake #5 – No product conviction

How in the world do you intend to sell anyone on the product or the opportunity if you are not sold yourself? Avoid this MLM Mistake at all costs! Get on the product and share the opportunity.

Easy Fix for the MLM Mistake(s)?

These five mistakes are easy to avoid in theory, but keep in mind, people in the MLM business make them all the time. Avoid these five mistakes and watch your business grow at a breakneck speed. Seek help and reach out to your upline if you catch yourself doing any of these five business killers. Best of luck to you. As a side note, luck stands for Labor Under Correct Knowledge. You have the knowledge, now get to work!
Best to you!
