Network Marketing-Not a Sales Business

So what would be easier? Going to work everyday, fighting traffic or learning skills to build your network Marketing business? One simple truth, Network Marketing is NOT a sales business. 

Without a doubt, many people are in network marketing without any idea there are skills needed to really succeed. This happen by being mislead into thinking that nothing could be easier than network marketing! The truth is the network marketing is a very hard business, because it takes WORK. Once you have learned the skills, then it becomes easy.

We are  all told, “write down 100 people’s names, go through the phone book and just pick phonebooka name…call it, or show them the products and what a fantastic opportunity you have found.”  But it does not work this way, and you know it if you are honest with yourself.  Just look back over the last 100 people you called and how you felt doing it.  No one wanted to hear from you, they don’t know you. They hang up in your ear.  Find a dublicatable system that does allow for opt-in qualifying leads and then go to work; build relationships of know, like and trust.

The truth be told,  you have been lied to. The fact is no one ever bothered to tell you that you might have to learn some skills!  Get educated about the industry.  If you get this one simple fact, Network Marketing is primarily a relationship business, a leadership training business, you are on the path to success.

The most basic skill set that you need in order to build solid and lasting relationships and therefore needed to build a solid and lasting business in network marketing is communication skills.  So let me ask you where you received your network marketing education? Were the skills taught to you in kindergarten, grade school? No? How about High School or University? Still no?  Well you must have learned the skills from your priest or pastor….no?  You obviously learned the skills from your parents? 

No is the answer to all the questions above because we are not taught the skills until we go looking for answers and education.

Without the necessary skills, you will fail in network marketing!

Some people are just natural born communicators and don’t require much in the way of any training, but truthfully, there are special skills that are needed to become successful in this business no matter what your communication level.  To have success you have to be able to speak to your prospects personality color.  Yup, there is a skill I bet you didn’t know about.

Even though there are good communicators, it does not indicate necessarily that they are going to know exactly what to say and when to say it. They often end up going too far too fast, scaring their prospects away because we the sponsor have set off the prospect’s natural  “salesman alarm”.  

The key to becoming a great communicator is knowing what to say and how to say it (especially in this tricky industry) By this I don’t mean just open your ear’s and closing your mouth. I mean truly understanding and learning about your prospect in the first couple of minutes or less of a conversation.

So why do you think you are listening?

Before you even determine their needs, a critical part of truly understanding your prospect, you must understand how to gauge your approach, depending on their personality.
