When it comes to marketing your MLM blog (your team's blog, etc - whichever you're promoting), what can you do? First and foremost, you'll need blog material. Next, use Facebook, retweet, and deep links. Read on for details!
I’ll let you in on a secret. Network Marketing is not a scheme. It’s not an industry. It’s not a business. It’s a powerful mirror. So many people misunderstand MLM and so many fail at it because they don’t allow themselves to look directly into the mirror.
The first thing that everyone is asked to do when they join a new company that is being built upon our network of people, is to ‘make a list’. Although it feels hard at first, it is really quite easy to make a list of family, friends and acquaintances from each of our circles of life in which we move and with whom we interact. The hard part is to not ‘make up the mind’ of these people for them; to not pre-judge them and take away an opportunity that they may actually be interested in.
Network Marketers, here’s a wealth building exercise that you can do with your team. Plan a rank advancement party. All guests wear clothing that reflects the lifestyle they will have when they achieve the highest rank in their company. When you arrive at the party, leave all your worries, all your obstacles, all your doubts and fears outside. The rule is to engage in positive conversations only. You will talk about achievements, hopes, plans, and possibilities.
In my last post I quoted Donald Trump. Many people don't like Donald Trump. Many people will blurt out cursory statements like, "Take advice from Donald Trump? He's broke" Ummmm, broke people don't get from point A to point B via a black helicopter with a TRUMP logo on the side of it!!! Case closed! That leads to the other 50% of the people who happen to respect what the man has been able to do - a few times - make money! This all leads to another BLURT/QUESTION/STATEMENT from many people who are uneducated in the field of network marketing...
I took that quiz I mentioned in my last post and was relieved to find that I was in one of the quadrants! I also realized I'd spent a lot of time dreaming of being in another. The real relief and joy came from knowing that I was on the exact path I needed to be on to get to that dream life! While I had spent the majority of my adult working life as an employee, I desired to be an owner of my own big business. For most of my life, getting my own big business was only a dream because I didn't have the time, money or resources to make it a reality. I was destined to be an employee forever. WRONG!!!
Reading always raises questions for me: why didn't school ever teach me stuff like Rich Dad's CASHFLOW Quadrant? If you don't already know what the CASHFLOW Quadrant is, then we need to talk. I'm not saying we need to talk if you need a career change. I'm not saying we need to talk if you're already in Network Marketing and you're looking into improving your business. What I am saying is that if you are a living, breathing, working human who does ANYTHING for time and money AND you've never heard of the CASHFLOW Quadrant or know what it means - then we need to talk!!!
You see, network marketing can give someone a good life and can help people have a great life. As you know, I moved my family from Manhattan to Ridgefield, Connecticut; with a 4 1/2 year old and a 9-month-pregnant wife. How would I have done it with a regular 9-to-5 office job (or more commonly, an 8-to-6)? In moving and unpacking hundreds of boxes, I've also been able to have some fun too. I'm all about lifestyle. Yes, our products are amazing and, yes, the money is great. But what about the lifestyle???
Here is an amazing woman - mom, wife, friend, real estate professional and flies the friendly skies. And guess what - she is also a network marketer. Read between the lines on this one everybody. The woman will be financially free in 2010. This is very powerful and inspiring.
