To really succeed in MLM you want to connect with other network marketers. You want to form strategic alliances with people who have experience in the industry and have proven results.
It’s much better to sponsor ONE network marketing professional into your business than it is to sponsor 100 amateurs who have never been in the industry before.
You also have to realize that companies come and go. Your network, not your downline, is your greatest asset!
So, what is the best way to connect with other network marketers?
I’m going to share some tips below on what I recommend you do:
1. Attend All Company Conventions
You should attend ALL of your company’s conventions. At the convention, identify the KEY leaders and introduce yourself to them. Ask them for a business card. Initiate a conversation with them. Ask them if you could call them or email them from time-to-time with questions. Most leaders are very receptive and approachable.
2. Attend Generic Training Seminars
Within our profession, there are hundreds of generic seminars put on by some of our industry leaders. Whenever possible, try to attend one of these seminars every 90 days. Meet as many people as you can. DO NOT pitch them your business. Just talk with them and build a friendship with them. Once again, stay in touch!
3. Publish a Newsletter for Network Marketers
One of the best things you can do to connect with other network marketers is to publish a monthly newsletter for network marketers. This positions yourself as a leader and it shows others what you have to offer. Some of the folks that read your newsletter will reach out to you.
4. Create a Blog for Network Marketers
Creating a blog for network marketers is another great way to connect with other network marketers. Once again, you show the value you have to offer. People who like your blog will eventually get to know you, like you and trust you.
5. Create a YouTube Channel for Network Marketers
Video is very powerful. This is another great way to connect with other network marketers. You can make videos about the industry that teach and inspire others.
6. Write a Book
Writing a book is a major project, but it can produce a good return on your time investment. It positions you as a leader. Some of the folks who read your book will reach out to you.
At the end of the day, you need to:
- Provide value
- Not pitch others
- Build FRIENDSHIPS
- Help others
- Stay in touch frequently
None of this is rocket science. Most people just don’t have the discipline to do it!
These are just a few things you can do to connect with other network marketers. Your ultimate goal is to build a BIG list of SUCCESSFUL network marketers who know you, like you and trust you. Cultivate the friendships. Stay in touch. Do what you can to help others.
By doing so, many of these folks will see you as an ALPHA LEADER and will eventually want to work with you. It really is that simple.
