Daily Checklist for Network Marketers

Today, I’d like to share my daily checklist for network marketers. I’m a big fan of checklists and “to-do” lists.

I learned about “checklists” during my time in the Army and decided to incorporate them into my MLM Business as well. In the Army, there are checklists for everything. There are pre-flight checklists all pilots must complete before they can take off. There are checklists for inspections you must follow. There are checklists for doing certain jobs. These checklists force people to focus and do the right tasks in the right order, so they achieve a certain result or standard. As I see it, checklists help reduce human error.

We are all pressed for time. Most people in our industry have a day job, a family, and outside of the home responsibilities. By the time they get home, eat dinner, spend some time with their family, and watch their favorite television show, there isn’t much time left in the day to build their business.Daily Checklist for Network Marketers

There are only 24-hours in a day. I’ve found that if you don’t have written priorities SCHEDULED in your day planner or written down on a “to do” list, there is a good chance it won’t get done. Life just gets in the way.

I suggest to everyone on my team, and to all other network marketers as well, to have a daily checklist or “to-do” list covering the few critical tasks they must do that day to build their network marketing business.

Example Daily Checklist for Network Marketers

Here is an example daily checklist for network marketers, specifically for part-timers.

_____ Make two exposures.

_____ Ask two people to order a product.

_____ Follow-up with two people.

_____ Talk with your coach.

_____ 15-minutes of personal development.

You could complete these five tasks in 45-minutes or less.mlm is not rocket science

My Daily Checklist for My MLM Business

Here is my current daily checklist for my network marketing business. I can do these activities in about two hours per day.

_____ Update my team Facebook group (5 minutes)

_____ Mail 10 postcards (5 minutes)

_____ Publish a YouTube video and podcast (20 minutes)

_____ Post Facebook Reel, Story, and timeline (15 minutes)

_____ Edit an old blog post (20 minutes)

_____ Place one ad (10 minutes)

_____ Email my list (10 minutes)

_____ Send welcome email to new members (10 minutes)

_____ Talk with Key Leaders (5 minutes)

_____ Personal Development (15 minutes)

Please keep in mind I am a part-time network marketer. I own traditional businesses as well. If I can do this, so can you!

Activities for Your Daily Checklist

What you will see below are 80 different activities you could do each day to grow your network marketing business. I suggest you pick minimum ONE idea from each category and do those four tasks each day. Make those four items your daily checklist. If you spend more time on your business each day than I do, pick two activities from each category.

I have the categories broken down into (1) Lead Generation/Prospecting, (2) Follow Up & Closing, (3) Duplication & Support, and (4) Personal Development.

Final Thoughts

I HIGHLY suggest you come up with a daily checklist for your network marketing business. Put three to seven money producing tasks on your list each day. Remember, the only money producing activities in your network marketing business are prospecting, showing the plan, following up, getting customers, and training your team. Make sure those are the activities you place on your daily checklist for network marketers.

This business is not rocket science. Success boils down to doing a few simple things every day, over and over, until you reach your goals. Most people fail in our industry because they do not focus, and they are not persistent and consistent!

Take 15-minutes right now and come up with a daily checklist for your network marketing business. Post it by your computer, put a copy in your day planner and one on the refrigerator. Make sure you do everything on your checklist at least five days a week, and preferably six days a week. Do that for two to three years and I know you will have a big business. Don’t do it and you will fail.
