How to Make More Money in Your Network Marketing or MLM Business

Today, I’d like to share some of my favorite tips about how to make more money in your network marketing and MLM business.

These are some simple and easy things you can do to make your business more profitable, starting today.

The tips are listed in no particular order.

Tip # 1: Get More Retail Customers

Without a doubt, the single greatest thing you can do to make more money in network marketing is to acquire more personal retail customers!

At a minimum, you should have five to ten personal customers who order products from you every single month.

Having twenty personal customers would be even better.

If you don’t have that many customers, go find some right now.

Retail sales give you immediate profit!

get more retail customersIn many cases, you will make more per transaction from a retail customer than you will from a personally sponsored distributor.

I can’t speak for anyone else, but I’d rather have 100 loyal product users than 100 distributors in my organization.

Most reps will quit, usually within 90 days, but many customers will stay loyal customers for a long time!

Customers are the lifeblood of your business.

Never forget that.

Find people who want to consume the products even if they have no intention to ever do the business.

All businesses need customers.

Tip # 2: Promote Additional Products and Services

In addition to your MLM Company, you should consider promoting additional products and services.

Just to clarify, I am not talking about promoting a second MLM Company.

This second income stream might include leads, training, coaching services, copywriting services, advertising services, systems, and different affiliate products.

Promoting additional products and services helps you in a few different ways.

First and foremost, promoting additional products and services will provide you with multiple streams of income.

This gives your business extra security in case your primary income stream shrinks or stops.

Yes, some companies go bankrupt.

Yes, some distributors have been terminated.

That’s why you want additional income streams, so all your eggs aren’t in one basket.

Another benefit of promoting additional products and services is that you can make money off people who don’t join your team or don’t become customers.

Regardless of how good you are at selling or closing, most people will NOT join your team.

Therefore, it’s good to have a way to earn money from these folks as well.

The final benefit of selling additional products and services is that you can make more money in a shorter time frame.

Let’s face it; it takes most people several years to earn a $3,000 to $5,000 per month income with their MLM Company.

When you promote additional products and services, in addition to your MLM Company, you can reach those numbers much quicker.

Tip # 3: Monitor Your Business Expenses

Sometimes the best way to make more money in your network marketing business is to reduce your expenses.

If you already have a decent income coming in, you should take some time and evaluate each one of your expenses.

Ask yourself “is this expense necessary?” or “is this expense producing a positive return on investment?”

If you are spending lots of money on tools and resources that aren’t producing a positive return on investment in your business, you should probably ditch them.

All businesses will have some expenses.

Just make sure the expenses you do have are giving you a positive return in your business.

Tip # 4: Promote a Top Tier MLM Company

I’m a big fan of Top Tier MLM Companies.

A Top Tier MLM Company is a company that pays you $500 to $5,000 or more upfront, when you recruit someone.

To earn the same amount of money in a traditional MLM Company you would probably have to sponsor 50 to 100 people personally.

I know plenty of people who earned $5k, $10k or much more during their first month with Top Tier Companies.

But, I’ve never met anyone who did that with a traditional MLM Company.

See what top tier company I promote.

Tip # 5: Invest in Your Business Education

Everyone knows that leaders are readers.

Every single successful entrepreneur I know of (in every industry) is a student of their business.

They are constantly looking for new ideas and ways to sharpen their skills and improve.

They learn everything they can about their industry so they can have a cutting edge over their competitors.

They attend seminars, listen to audio training programs, hire business coaches, read books and do whatever else they can to improve their skills.

To succeed in MLM, you need to do the same thing.

Right from day one I suggest you invest in your business education.

Study topics such as lead generation, marketing, book keeping, advertising methods, team building, leadership, communication skills, etc.

Start learning and never stop!

As you earn more money with your business, reinvest a portion of your profits back into your business education ever month.

It will be money well spent.

The only investment you can’t lose money on is when you invest in yourself.

Learn more about investing in your business education.

Tip # 6: Find a Mentor

Tiger Woods has a mentor.

So did Michael Jordan, Wayne Gretzky and just about every other famous athlete, President, actor and successful person I can think of.

No one knows everything.

Even if you are already good at building a team of distributors, you still have a lot to learn.

And if you are new to the industry, you really need a mentor.

Do what you can to find someone in your up line, who has a vested interest in your success, to be your mentor.

Find the most successful distributor you can in your up line and listen to their training.

Ask them if they will coach you and work with you personally.

Be a sponge and soak up their knowledge.

Stay with them until you outgrow them and then go further up line and find another mentor.

Make sure you have a mentor for your entire network marketing career.

It’s one of my best tips on how to make more money in network marketing.

Learn how to find a mentor.

sound marketing principles memeTip # 7: Learn Everything You Can About Marketing

We are one of the only industries that don’t teach our own people about marketing.

We are taught that everyone is a prospect.

We are taught to talk to everyone we know.

Make a name list, pitch your friends and family and hope for the best.

If you were to start any other type of business you wouldn’t follow that advice, so why do you do it for your network marketing business?

Do yourself a favor and study marketing.

Study Mike Dillard, Dan Kennedy, Joe Polish, Gary Halbert, Frank Kern and other successful direct response marketers.

Learning marketing will be hands down the single most important skill you can develop to make it to the top in your network marketing business.

Never forget that!

stop relying on your uplineBonus Tip: Take Ownership of Your Business

Even if you are new to the industry, you must take ownership of your business.

I know it’s the American way to pass the buck and want someone else to do everything for you.

However, if you want to make it big in network marketing, you must understand that it’s up to YOU to succeed.

Stop relying on your sponsor or up line to do everything for you.

Start doing your own calls, your own training, your own presentations, etc.

Be accountable and be responsible.

Act like a leader.

Be a leader.

Until you do that, you will never get the results you want and deserve.

Learn more about taking responsibility for your business.

Final Thoughts

In summary, these are seven simple ways to make more money in your network marketing or MLM business.

These tips are simple and fairly easy to do.

All you need to do is make a decision and commit.

The bottom line is that you should never just promote your MLM Company.

Ideally, you want multiple streams of income so you have security and increased profitability.

Additionally, you should consider promoting a Top Tier MLM Company so you can make more money up front in your business.

You must always focus on your business education and work with a successful mentor.

Finally, you want to always keep a close eye on your business expenses so you can eliminate or reduce the ones that aren’t vital for your business.

    I noticed that a lot of people offer free eBooks or eNews letters via email as part of a way to get people on board with what you are doing. I never tried this. I wrote a book years ago and I would love to know if this is something I should consider as a “free” incentive to have people join me.

    These are great tips Chuck. The whole point in being in business is to make money, and the top one is getting more retail customers. I totally agree and when you have retail customers, you will end up picking up distributors who want to save or get their products for free.

    I do have one question. You mentioned Top-Tier MLM companies. If a person is in a lower level MLM, would it be a good idea for that person to also join a top tier one too? It just seems that would provide from both levels. That is, if a person could manage marketing for both.

    Reply
      1. Greg Boudonck

        Yes, that makes sense. So do you think a top tier is a better choice, or is it purely our gut instincts?

        It just seems that joining a top tier seems risky. It is much easier to get people to spend 10-20 or even 100 dollars, but getting people to spend 1,000’s can be much more difficult.

        I am just curious how other people reading this blog think about that situation.

    I think the best way to make money in network marketing is to set goals and then develop a plan to achieve those goals. Next it is important to share those goals with an accountability partner and family. Sharing your goals and plans with a partner who will check in with you to make sure you are working on your goals and your family so that they can be supportive and be aware of what you are trying to accomplish.

    If you want to make more money in MLM you need to look at what most people are doing and to the complete opposite. Most people do not go on auto-ship, do not get customers, do not sponsor people, do not do what their upline tells them to do, do not stay around more than 90 days, etc. If you do the opposite of these things you will make money. It’s really that simple.

    I think the best way to make money in network marketing is to find what works for you. There are literally hundreds of different ways to build a business. What works for one person might not work for another person. Try out a few different strategies (with the same company) until you find something that works for you. Once you find something, simply take massive action for a period of a few years.

    My advice is to team up with successful people. Find someone in your upline who is real successful with your company and jump in their hip pocket. You can’t learn how to be successful from someone who hasn’t done it themselves, so make it a point to work with someone who has achieved what you are trying to achieve.

Never stop learning. Be a student of your business. As you start making more money, educate yourself even more. The most successful distributors spend lots of money on coaching, seminars, and training. You should do the same thing. Start small and never stop educating yourself about your company and the MLM Industry.

    My tip to make more money in MLM is to have a laser like focus. Set goals, create an action plan and do no activity that doesn’t move you closer to your goals. Don’t diversify. Don’t try 2-3 different businesses at once. Pick one good business and focus for a long period of time.

    I think the best way to make more money in network marketing is to do home parties. I realize that most folks are obsessed with the Internet, but it’s also true that home parties work. I’m affiliated with Pampered Chef and I do nothing but host home parties. I do two parties a week, every week. On an average month I net almost $2000. The best part is that I’m not stuck sitting at my computer all day. And I get to interact with other people. It’s like the best of both worlds.

    I think the best way to make more money in network marketing is to promote a program that pays you well. You want to earn at least a few hundred dollars per sign up. Making $2 to $10 per month per person on your team is simply a bad business model. When you need a couple hundred people on your team just to make $1k per month, you’re heading down the path to failure. It’s simply too much work for too little money.

    The best way to make more money in MLM is to sponsor leaders. Most of your income will come from 2-3 legs in your organization any way, so it’s best to look for leaders.

This can really pay huge dividends.

    I think the best way to make more money in MLM is simply to promote high end programs that pay you $500 or more just for sponsoring someone. With most companies, you can bring in 10-20 new people a month, but you get paid very little for bringing someone in. As a result, you work like a dog, but you don’t get paid much for your effort. With these top tier programs you can earn $1000 or more just for signing someone up. To make the same amount of money in a traditional company you would need to bring in 30-40 people.

    Social media marketing is another proven promotional tool. I am continually amazed at how many people can be reached with a simple status update, and the linking features that are now available for many social sites make it very easy to keep it fresh with one post. My experience as a consumer of several social sites like Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter illustrates its power. I find awesome resources and products through clicking on links brought to my attention through one of these sites. Not to mention that it’s very inexpensive to use to supplement your branding and marketing efforts.

    2. Familiarize yourself with the compensation plan and determine what you need to do to reach that income goal
    3. Create a daily action plan highlighting what you must do every day to reach that goal

    I hope that helps.

    Here is my best advice.

    1. Find a mentor
    2. Find out what they did to achieve success in their MLM Company
    3. Do what they did

    That is quite perhaps the best and simplest way to achieve success in network marketing.

      Carri,

      Those are some great tips. Everyone needs a mentor and a game-plan. There’s no point re-creating the wheel when you don’t have to.

      Thanks for the comment.

    I think the best way to make more money in your network marketing business is to do what all the top earners do: have seminars, sell products, sell systems and sell leads. There’s much more money to be made selling those things that trying to convince your cousin Joe to buy your magic juice.

      I couldn’t agree with you more, Alexander.

      The only thing is, you still have to know how to build relationships and market your business if you want to sell those things. Most people won’t just buy from you, without getting to know you, like you and trust you first. They want to make sure you are real, and successful, and provide value to them. If you can do that first, you will sell those type of MLM Tools all day long, and make a good income doing it.

    I don’t think the average guy can make any money whatsoever in network marketing. I tell everyone I know and meet to avoid this industry like the plague. The only thing that will happen is that you will lose all your money.

      Damon,

      Sorry to know you feel that way. I know plenty of people who make money in our industry, so I will have to respectfully disagree with you. I’m curious, have you ever been in the industry before. If so, with which company, and for how long? You must have had a bad experience.

    If you’re trying to make more money in network marketing you definitely want to have your own blog. You need multiple streams of income in your network marketing business. When you have a blog you can promote affiliate products, lead programs, systems and many other things in addition to your MLM Company. Your blog is your HUB of operations. You can make money even while you sleep. I think it’s the best approach you can take.

      Nate,

      I think having your own blog is a great way to make more money in network marketing. I have three blogs and I have multiple streams of income from my blogs, just like you mentioned. It’s definitely hard work though. It took me several years of daily blogging to get significant traffic to my blogs. And most people aren’t willing to do that. Just my thoughts.

    I simply love the idea of top tier companies, just like some other people mentioned. I’m giving up the traditional MLM business model for good and switching over to the top tier program business model.

    I think the best way to make more money in your network marketing business is to promote a top tier program. You need a company that pays you AT LEAST $500 for signing someone up and $1,000 is even better. With most companies, you need to build a small Army just to make $500. Personally, I’d rather get compensated for my time and not have to work as hard or recruit as many people.

      Good point, Louie. This is a very popular trend for people looking to make more money in network marketing. These top tier programs are showing up all over the place. Many of these programs pay several thousand dollars just for signing someone up. Of course, you should still do your due diligence before you join a top tier program. Make sure it is legit and there aren’t too many complaints about it. And make sure it makes sense to you, and you feel comfortable promoting it. But if all those things work out, pick a good company and role with it.

    Promoting additional products and services is just smart business. Why wouldn’t a person want to jump at the opportunity to create income from different sources. This then gives you somewhat of a financial cushion because money is coming in from different directions. Meaning if sales are low in one area you can still maintain decent business with sales in your other areas. In today’s society you have to know how to do this because experience has shown us that putting all your eggs in one basket can be something you regret.

      Putting all your eggs in one basket is a bad move, in any business endeavor, even network marketing. You should diversify and have a MLM Company, a leads business, a system business and a training business, at a minimum. This lets you make money, even when people don’t join your team.
