You would think that it would take massive skills to become successful in network marketing. A sales person, an extrovert, on stage speaker and the need to know A LOT of people. When in fact, those traits are not what will get you to the success you want.
Please don’t get me wrong, they definitely help but, without this one thing, it’s not happening.
The key – Belief. Let’s break it down.
Belief in the Company and Product:
Your initial confidence is going to be in You talking about the products. It’s a simple lead in when starting the conversation. It doesn’t matter what your deal is, being able to speak with confidence about your shakes, travel, info products, technology, etc… Belief in your product, get’s people’s attention.
Belief in the Compensation Plan:
Obviously you want to be paid for your hard work. Where the misconception about comp plans comes into play, is the heavy up front bonuses paid out. There are some companies that pay a large sum in the beginning by You selling a bunch of products right out the gate.
While this is pretty cool, it’s not very sustainable. We are in this for residual income. A decent compensation plan will pay your more bonuses, perks and percentages the further you are in the company. Pay attention to that and you’ll see a higher retention rate for you and your team.
I saved the most important for the last.
Belief in YOURSELF:
I’m going to be pretty straight here. It’s not always easy. There will be those in your life that will try to bring you down, tell you that you’re crazy, that this will never work, why are you wasting your time and money, why are you going away from your family again and again. It’s tiring and harsh to deal with at times.
Understand this right off the bat. It might not be apparent at first but most are just trying to “Save” us. Most have a preconceived notion of what our industry represents and don’t want to see us go down “That Path”. You know what, that’s cool, it really has nothing to do with what we’re doing or how they feel about us.
Get to events and meet the people that have made it. Meet the leaders in your company that are just like you or in worse off situations. Meet those that were terrified to talk to people in the beginning and are now creating a 6 and 7 figure income, making an impact all over the world.
You know that can be you, right? This is real, you just have to keep to it. Find a coach or a mentor and do as they do and what they say. You’ll make and it’s going to be awesome.
