Frustrated Network Marketer–When The Hill Grows

Life is full of ups and downs, achievements and disappointments, successes and failures, joys and sadness.  In life there are no easy paths that lead to a perfect life where all is bliss and happiness all the time.  Along the path of life there are obstacles you will encounter and decisions to be made.  Frustrated network marketer – when the hill grows into a mountain what will you do?

There will be times when life delivers us a new challenge and the hill becomes a mountain.  It will be up to us to decide whether we accept the challenge or walk away.  How we handle a challenge will determine whether we will be successful or fail. The key is in your decision. The choice is yours alone. If a path of failure and disappointment is chosen there is no one to blame but you.

I know a network marketer who has been up to the challenge a number of years now.  You see the network marketing company she is with is not in her country but to her that does not matter.  Yes there are challenges but because it is what she wanted to do so she chose the path of success.  The company was a perfect fit for her so she accepted the challenges that she knew would be difficult but the road to success was in her view.  To her the decision that if she could not build her business in her country she would build it in countries that the network company was in was a decision she HAD to make.  She is successful now and in the near future she will have achieved her goals and be living her dreams.  She is an inspiration to those that know her and will be so to many many more.

Recently two network companies merged and with the merger both companies have gained expertise that they were lacking and in fact the new entity has increased in strength and expertise.  A move that was beneficial to both companies and the distributors.  New products introduced which means a learning experience for those that have not been introduced to these products before  and different selling techniques.  One of the unfortunate turns of events is that the company is not in all the countries that the merging company was in creating  new challenges for some of the distributors in those countries.  But for those that seek to achieve their dreams and goals they will find a way around or over the mountain that has obstructed their path.

How we deal with these mountains will determine whether we need to take a different path or continue on the path we are on and face the new challenge.  We need to remember that we are business people and need to make  decisions based on a business point of view and not on an emotional one.  Emotions tend to cloud your vision and give way to negative emotions if the situation does not follow the path we had set.  Stephen R. Covey in his book “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective people” came upon a revelation and quoted it in his book.  “There is a gap or space between stimuli and response”.  The gap is the time you will have to make a decision to respond to the stimuli and the outcome will depend upon your decision.  Depending what the decision is, you will need to use the right criteria to make your decision and in business basing your decision upon an emotional response will lead down the path of negativity when in reality the situation you are cast into may be the best situation for you.

Frustrated Network Marketer–When The Hill Grows into that mountain that seems too high what will you do?  What will you do in that gap between stimuli and response?  I can only encourage you to make your decision based upon the right criteria and what is best for you.

Successful Network Marketing–Knowing How To Analyze An Opportunity BEFORE Spending a Dime

To be successful network marketing – knowing how to analyze an opportunity BEFORE spending a dime will save you years of struggle, frustration and starting from scratch over and over again.  On the other hand, if you have already signed on the dotted line with a company and are struggling to create that income from home as an online network marketer, I strongly suggest and recommend that you find a mentor with a servant’s heart to help you look at the opportunity you are currently in to see where there can be some improvements made. Usually it is just a matter of learning some skills, a network marketing education if you will.

How many times have you started a network marketing company, only to find frustration with the duplicable system, the upline support is next to zero or non existent and the compensation plan just does not add up as you were shown in the presentation? 

How many times have you been burned? That’s right. You thought you saw the light at the end of the tunnel; had an organization of twenty, thirty or even hundreds in your downline when…BAM! Something turned it off. You found yourself holding the bag. Sound familiar? Perhaps you were terminated without cause, the company went out of business or changed it’s business model from MLM to direct sales.  Heaven forbid the company may  decided that it does not need  sales reps at all of any kind, direct or MLM distributors.  What happens then? 

My hope would be that you would determine just how much of a risk the company you are thinking of joining will be before you join.  But if you find that you skipped that step and are in a company now,  there is still a way to determine how much you are risking by  using the 5 Pillars technology. Once you read the book Success in10 Steps written by Michael Dlouhy you will, when finished the free training course,  have an equivalent of a University degree in Network Marketing. 

You will learn:

  • How to avoid scams that are masked as legitimate MLM Companies and turn out to be pyramid schemes
  • What is the best compensation plan? 
  • What is the best system for duplication? 
  • What is the best MLM company for YOU?
  • What to say and when to say it.

Just imagine how you would feel if you were NEVER scammed again, could finally create a residual walk away  income of 10K a month or even more and could finally say I have found a company that I can call HOME.

Just what is your desired income, perhaps an extra $500 a month is good enough for you?  Will your Policies and Procedures as well as your compensation plan allow you to retire and/or will your business to your heirs. 

The Policies and Procedures will in most cases indicate that you can retire or leave your residual income to your heirs; succession. But, have you read them close enough to know that there may be qualifications that MUST be met by your heirs, or even qualifications that may prevent you from ever retiring.  Oh you can retire whenever you wish, but in most contracts in MLM if you decide to retire and do not caring on with your training responsibilities and your team building responsibilities; you will no longer be eligible to receive YOUR residual income that YOU created.  Making it impossible for you to retire and take a vacation when you want if you still want to receive that residual income that you worked so hard for.  This income, if you choose to walk away from a contract written like this will now roll right back to the company. OUCH!!

Read your PnPs for your self.  Look for words such as “ongoing” training, responsibilities, succession. What do your heirs have to do to qualify to receive what you have willed to them in your last will and testament?  How will your heirs feel when they realize that in order for them to receive what you have willed to them, they MUST sign up as a distributor and perform all the same duties that you do now?… Recruiting, selling, pitching your deal, training your downline.

You can  put any company to the 5 Pillars test.  Using the 5 qualifications listed in the 5 Pillars qualifying technology that will allow you to determine what your chances of success and or failure will be with any company.  You can find out what the 5 Pillars technology is by contacting us and we would be honoured to explain this important tool for evaluating a business opportunity.

What would have happened if you had the ability to properly analyze an opportunity before you decide to spend a dime? If that sounds like what you want, then give us a call and we would be honoured to share with you what we have learned over the past few years.

Frustrated Network Marketer–Warning: Common Problem That Causes Rejection!

Have you ever consider why the imageprospect you have been speaking to turned into a dud?  Tom “Big Al” Schreiter, a legend in the network marketing industry says, “Prospects are neither good or bad but are neutral.  Bad prospects didn’t become bad until they spoke to us. Tom goes on to say, “it is because of what we said and did.”

When Tom (Big Al) started in the multi level marketing industry he went 22 months without recruiting anyone or selling a single product.  With frustration he began wondering if it was the company.  His upline asked him some soul searching questions.  Another distributor in the company, we will call Bob, was in the same town as Tom (Big Al).  The upline asked: “Is Bob from the same town as you are?  Is Bob recruiting into his business?  Is Bob selling products?”  Tom (Big Al) answered “Yes” to all three questions and the advice given to him was you had better figure it out because it is not the company’s fault.

Tom (Big Al) went and did figure it out and that finding made him the legend he is today.  You maybe asking how Tom Figured it out?  He stepped out and began studying people and learned how to communicate with them on a level that would bring in new business partners and sell products.

What Tom learned was he needed to be speaking to the subconscious mind of the prospect and not to theimage reasoning mind.  Tom likes to compare the size of the reasoning mind to that of a pea and the size of the subconscious mind to that of a large hotel.  Since most people make decisions with their subconscious mind it makes much more sense to use the language of that mind.  If you appeal to the reasoning mind it is this mind that comes up with all the reasons not to join you in business or buy your product(s) “REJECTION”.  There is nothing more damaging than rejection to a distributor and even more so to someone new to the business.

Tom (Big Al) Schreiter developed many skills to appeal imageto the subconscious mind, rejection free, that he teaches all over the world.  His 25 skills  have been tested and tried many times before, because he figured out what to say and what to do and used these skills to build his business.   I have seen them work and use them myself.  There are many success stories from those who use Tom’s skills and all admit their business has propelled forward at an amazing rate when they learned and applied these amazing skills.

What is going to be easier for you, to continue your business while struggling and being frustrated “or” learning Tom “Big Al” Schreiter rejection free skills?  Contact us and we will share where to get Tom (big Al’s) Skills.

Successful Network Marketer–Mirror, Mirror On The Wall What Product Is The Catchall?

When beginning a home based business on line one of the areas considered is what product or service to choose that will move you closer to your goals in life.  Whether your goal is to be financially free, travel or even just earn an extra $500 a month having the right product or service will help you reach your target much faster.  To be a Successful Network Marketer–”Mirror, Mirror On The Wall What Product Is The Catchall?” will be the question to ask.

Most people who get into network marketing go about finding a product or service backwards.  They begin by looking for a product or service that they have fallen in love with and then go out finding others and convince them of their need for the product or service.  Their thought is they will be able to recruit them as a customer and/or a business partner in the venture.  If the product or service you have chosen to fall in love with is not appealing to the masses then your job becomes much more difficult.  With this being the case the chances of you reaching your dreams and goals in life are diminished which translates into you taking longer to achieve them or maybe not at all.

The best way to search for a product or service is to find one that the masses are already clamouring for and fall in love with that product.  You see with this type of product or service people will come to you looking to buy and all you will need to do is let the public know that you have the product or service they are seeking.  You will not have to convince them that they need it because they already have the belief that they do.

Sometimes the pot is sweetened even more when the product or service is an exclusive to one company.  This also eliminates much of the competition since the product or service is an exclusive.  For example when you are in the business of selling cell phones and the needed packages that go with them there are many online companies doing so.  Also the independent distributor is competing with the major telephone companies for that same piece of the pie and these companies can afford to give the best deals where the distributor cannot.  The company the independent distributor has joined can only do that if they reduce the profit margins which in turn gets passed on to the distributor in the form of a smaller bonus check.  Having that exclusive product or service certainly makes the job much easier for the independent distributor.

The only ingredient that is missing are the skills needed to talk to people without raising their salesman alarm.  Once the alarm is raised the chances of you being able to sell your product or service are little to none.  These skills are taught by tomlydTom “Big Al” Schreiter who is a very successful network marketer and generic trainer.  In most cases having the proper communication skills is as valuable as having that one of a kind exclusive product or service.

Remember in your search for a product or service to sell, it is not about you but about the public and how you can help them get what they are looking for.  To be a Successful Network Marketer–Mirror, Mirror On The Wall What Product Is The Catchall? will be the question to ask.  As always we recommend, do your due diligence on the company and it’s leadership to be sure you are safe and read your Policies and Procedures to make sure you know what is expected of you.

MLM Conniving and Manipulation, Don’t be Taken In

 

 

I am sure you are very familiar with many of the eye-catching, heart-pumping ads which you see while surfing the net or someone in your social network has introduced you to. These ads scream,  "We Build IT for You!", Make Thousands of Dollars in Six Months, FREE to JOIN, No Investment Required or Earn $5000 in Fifteen Minutes A Day!" These hyped ads are glamorous and irresistible to most people, especially those who are looking for ways to create income from home.

These ads appeal to our need to make a quick buck, simply because we find ourselves in financial situations that we feel overwhelmed by and seek alternative measures to improve things.  We believe everything we see on TV, in newspapers and now-a-days on the internet as Gospel.   Our greed takes over (in most cases unknowingly), rational reflection flies right out the window. As a  result there have been far too many people who were conned and manipulated out of their hard-earned money.  Unfortunately we know some of these people personally. 

The Makeup of Network Marketing Scams

There is a lot of manipulation going on behind the scenes that most network marketers are not aware of.  Gurus that have been called upon to become the “Master Distributor of a company, in some cases have had their position given to them.  They were “bought”. Yes the company “PAID” to have that big Guru be the top dog in their company.  The “Top Dog” has been lured away at a price from another company, in a lot case bringing a huge downline along with them.  Some of these “gurus” have never built a downline in their career as a network marketer.   The majority of people who enter into MLM businesses are green as grass in business affaires. Often, they bumped into it as they answered an ad on the internet, in a newspaper, or on TV.

Most people have an abundance of logic and common sense, but when it comes to making huge amounts of money, most people seem to have lost  their common sense altogether.  After all,  this could be the opportunity to finally become rich.

Fast, simple and easy or even “on autopilot” are the marketing tricks employed by most scams. In their normal jobs people work very hard as a rule, spending  time and energy on what needs to be done. It is sad stat that all this hard work doesn’t get them where they want to be financially.

Now they see an ad that promises everyone that they can make lots of money with a minimal amount of work. They become victim to emotional marketing  and jump for the offer that might be the key to a financially better lifestyle. But in many cases it is the opportunity to empty their pockets.

Being Cautious is The Cardinal Rule In Business!

Warren Buffett, the famous investor, states: "you can’t do good business with bad people." This should be everybody’s golden rule.

If you want to go into business with someone, be absolutely sure you are dealing with a person of integrity. Intelligence and ambition are fine, but more important is a good, moral character. If the last quality is not there, you are asking for  mischief.

People and MLM companies are transparent – it may not be easy to check them out on the internet, but it is possible. Do NOT miss the opportunity to do your due diligence of the company management team and the company.   It could mean the difference between your success or your failure.

To Your Success
