Today, I want to take a few moments and share my MLM Business Strategy for 2019. Before I cover my business strategy in detail, I’ll take a brief moment and share my goals first.
My Business Goals
Here are my goals for 2019 for my network marketing business.
- Personally sponsor 120 people
- Reach the rank of DOUBLE DIAMOND in my business
- Generate 10,000 leads for my business
- Add 4,000 new team members
At the time of writing this article, it is December 5, 2018. My team currently has about 2,600 affiliates and customers in it. I’ve been with my company since December 2016.
My MLM Business Strategy for 2019
Let me start out by telling you that I am a former Army officer. I spent a lot of time in the military planning missions. This experience has helped me immensely in the MLM Industry.
While I am good at the tactical work of my business, I really enjoy the goal setting, planning and strategy development. I am a big picture kind of guy and I rarely get hung up in the details.
I set yearly, monthly, weekly and daily goals. I have a daily checklist of items I must do each day. And, I am a task master and work very efficiently. That being said, here is what I do each day.
My Daily Routine
_____ Herculist (Send out daily email blast)
_____ Bing PPC Ads (check stats and look for areas to improve daily)
_____ Mail 10 postcards (daily)
_____ Update Twitter (share a photo, quote and blog post link, 5x per week)
_____ Linkedin (update feed daily and publish 1 article weekly)
_____ Check Email (reply to questions daily)
_____ Email My Entire MLM Team (Monday, Wednesday and Friday)
_____ Update Facebook Groups daily
_____ Email My Prospect List (send out a helpful training email, 3x per week)
_____ Revise a Post on My Blog (3x per week)
_____ Publish New Blog Post (3x per week)
_____ Send 2 Handwritten Notes per Day
_____ Visit MLM.com Forums and leave a comment (2x week)
_____ Visit WarriorForum.com and leave a comment (2x week)
_____ Publish new YouTube video (3x week)
_____ Publish new podcast (3x week)
_____ Publish article at MLM Gateway and check advertising stats (1x week)
_____ Visit IBOToolBox.com and post on wall and check ads (daily)
_____ Upload slides to SlideShare (3x week)
_____ Read for 20-minutes
Herculist is a safelist that I use online. I am a Gold Member (about $50 per year). With this membership level, I can send an email to 80,000 people per day, every day. This takes me about two minutes to do each day.
Guaranteed Solo Mails
Like Herculilst, Guaranteed Solo Mail is a safelist that lets me send out a solo ad and credit mailer every 4th day. I believe I paid about $97 for a lifetime membership with this site. I also use several of their paid advertising options. This takes me about 5-minutes every fourth day.
Bing PPC ads is an ad network, similar to Google Adwords. They work in conjunction with Yahoo, MSN, AOL and Bing. I login once per day to check my ad stats, create new ads, add new keywords, etc. This takes me about 10-minutes per day to do.
I send out 10 pieces of direct mail every day, Monday through Friday. This includes a combination of postcards, booklets and flyers.
I login to Twitter every day, Monday through Friday. Each day, I follow 50 new people, send out a few Tweets and a few direct messages. This takes me about 15-minutes per day.
I love Linkedin. I publish one new article per week on Linkedin. I also send 20-30 connection requests every day. I also like to share articles, blog posts, photos and other information on Linkedin every day. I probably spend about 20-minutes on the website each day.
Check My Email
I’m on email much more than I like. I probably receive 300-500 emails daily and send out at least 150 per day. I answer questions, email new prospects, talk with my team, etc. Estimated time is 2-hours per day on email.
Email My Team
I email my entire MLM Team every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I share corporate announcements, provide recognition, share training tips, and let people know about upcoming events. This takes me about an hour per week.
Every Tuesday night at 9pm EST, I hold a training webinar for my MLM Team. The webinar takes about an hour and I spend about 4 to 8 hours preparing for it.
I update Facebook every single day. I have a group for my team and one for my Mastermind Team. I don’t post much personal stuff on Facebook. I just use it to stay in touch with my prospects and team.
Email My Prospect List
I send out a helpful training email to my prospects three times per week, every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. This information is designed to get my prospect to know, like and trust me and want to work with me.
Update Existing Blog Posts
Each week, I strive to edit and rewrite three old blog posts on my blog. This takes me about 90-minutes to do.
Publish New Blog Posts
While most of my writing for my blog is now outsourced, I make sure my blog gets updated three times per week, which gives me about 12 new blog posts each month.
I make it a point to send at least two handwritten notes per day, 7-days per week. I write to friends, family, prospects and team members. This “personal touch” is one of my best marketing activities.
I have an account at the MLM.com forums. The forum is very quiet, but I am an active contributor. I try to post something, or respond to someone else’s post two to three times per week.
I’m an active contributor at the Warrior Forum. I try to leave 3-5 forum comments each week. I also write about topics that interest me.
To date, I’ve made about 800 podcasts. I strive to publish 3 new podcasts each week. This gives me added exposure to my blog and business opportunity.
I aim to publish one new article on MLM Gateway every week. I also utilize their pay per click advertising platform to promote my business opportunity.
Visit IBO Tool Box
I have an account with IBO Tool Box. This is similar to a social media website for home business owners. I aim to publish one new press release per week, update my wall, send friend requests and share my content. I also run ads on their website. This takes me about 5 to 10-minutes per day.
Post Slides on Slideshare
I love Slideshare. This is a website that is connected with Linkedin. It allows you to upload new PowerPoint presentations whenever you want. I use this strategy to build new links to my blog and get added exposure to my business. I try to upload new slides three times per week.
Read & Personal Development
I make it a point to read a business or self-help book for 20 to 30-minutes every single day. I aim to do this 7-days per week.
I don’t exercise as much as I should, but I strive to exercise for 30-minutes per day three to four days per week. I normally go for a walk or do an exercise routine from Beach Body, or an app on my cell phone.
The Bottom Line
The bottom line is that you need a MLM Business Strategy that matches your available time and your business goals. You don’t need to do exactly what I do, but you need to do something that works for you. My challenge to you is to come up with your own MLM Business Strategy BEFORE January 1st and have the discipline to follow it every day for a year.
