Probably almost all of us were recruited into our Network Marketing companies believing that success would come a lot easier than it has. The concept seems simple…the key to MLM success was to just convince a few people to join, who in turn, would recruit a few people, and the cycle would continue until you eventually had thousands of people in your downline and millions of dollars flowing into your bank account on autopilot.
Just recruit 2 who recruit 2 who recruit 2, right?
Well… not really 🙁
While the concept of Network Marketing is, in fact, very simple, what you have probably come to understand is that having a simple system doesn’t exactly make something easy.
MLM Success – When Reality Hits
Sometimes the reality of your situation hits within the first month, and other times it takes 3-6 months to finally sink in that finding MLM success is going to be harder than you first anticipated.
For most people, this is the critical point in their Network Marketing business. They want to succeed, but they just don’t see how it is going to happen. They’ve done everything they were told to do and it hasn’t worked, and they’re running out of friends and family to talk to about their business.
You can feel lost, worn down, desperate, and maybe even a little bit lied to.
Instant MLM Success?
Very few people experience instant MLM success. But for some reason, those are the only people you ever see walking up on stage at your company’s events – as if that were the norm.
But if you’re like almost everyone else in this business, all of your friends and family have said no, and if you managed to recruit anybody, they aren’t doing anything.
You don’t want to quit and give up on your dreams, but you’re maybe starting to ask yourself things like…
-How long can I keep going like this?
-At what point does it NOT make sense to keep dumping money into a business that will never succeed?
-Am I being a bad parent by putting my time and money into a failing business rather than give my children the time and attention they should be getting and investing that money into their education?
Three Keys To MLM Success
The good new is that almost everyone’s story in Network Marketing starts the same – whether they eventually succeed or fail, almost every single one of us struggle in this business in the beginning. It’s normal to have doubts, it’s normal to want to quit, and it’s normal to ask those questions of yourself and your business.
But while all Network Marketers start the same, not all of our stories have the same ending. In fact, you can choose how your story goes – whether it’s a story of MLM success or failure.
And here’s how you do it – there are three keys that can help you overcome the notoriously low MLM success rate and practically guarantee MLM success…
The First Key To MLM Success – Never Give Up
And I mean never. The only sure way to fail in this business is to quit. You need to be absolutely committed to success in this business to succeed.
If you have the mentality that this is just something you’re ‘trying out’ to see if it works, or if you’ve set any sort of criteria for yourself for quitting (ex. if I don’t make X amount of money by X date, I should quit), then those are some pretty clear signs that you aren’t as committed as you need to be to make your Network Marketing business successful.
Not that I’m trying to discourage you – I’m just trying to be honest. You need to make a committed decision as to whether you will succeed in Network Marketing or not. If yes, then great. But if not, then don’t poo-poo the Network Marketing industry because you didn’t want to succeed with your business.
MLM success only comes by pushing through a bunch of failures. As an entrepreneur, you never know how many times you will have to fail until you finally succeed. That is why only the most committed people find the most success with their Network Marketing businesses.
The Second Key To MLM Success – Devote Yourself To Learning
In order to make a 6 figure income, you need to learn skills that are worth 6 figures. In other words, you need to become someone whose knowledge and abilities are worth 6 figures.
The great thing about Network Marketing is that learning these 6 figure skills costs FAR less and takes much less time than learning 6 figure skills in most other professions.
For the most part, you can gain a lot of the skills you need through free training like this.
The next step would be to invest in a good paid training course, which is where you will get a lot more information and also in more detail than any of the free training you will find.
Now, paid training is where many people draw the line – they want a six figure income, but they want it for free. And this is where being cheap will keep you broke.
All I can say is that if Leah Rae and I had never invested money into the training courses we bought, there is no way we would be where we are now with our business.
The Third Key To MLM Success – Take Action
The first two keys to MLM success won’t matter one bit if you don’t take some major action.
The one major pitfall that a lot of people fall into is getting stuck in ‘study mode’. You buy all of this great training and you go through it over and over, take notes, develop a plan, but never put it into action.
Most of the time, the failure to take action is due to some unanswered questions or out of a desire to make all of your setup ‘perfect’ before you get started.
MLM success doesn’t come by starting next week. It comes by starting today. You need to get started and take action NOW and figure out the unanswered questions and improve your setup as you go.
As it is often said (quoting General George S. Patton), “a good plan, executed today, is better than a perfect plan next week”.
MLM Success – Where To Get Started
I can’t do much for you concerning the first and third keys to MLM success, but I can help you out with the second key to MLM success.
The best free training I’ve found on how to generate leads for your business online can be found right here.
As for paid training programs, there are many I could recommend that I have bought and gotten a ton of value from. But by far, the one purchase we made that made the biggest impact on our business and contributed the most to our MLM success is right here.
