Today, I want to talk about taking massive action in your MLM Business, and what it means. Let me preface by telling you that this post is for the people who want to go FULL TIME in their network marketing business. If you’re just looking to get your products for free each month or make an extra couple hundred dollars per month, please disregard this post.
You’ll probably hear a lot of top earners talk about taking massive action to create momentum and leverage in their network marketing business, but there is a good chance that you don’t really know how to do it or what that means! I hope to explain it in greater detail so it makes sense to you.
To really succeed in this industry, you have to do what most people aren’t willing to do. This truly is a numbers game and the only way to work the numbers quickly is to take massive action. Yes, you can build a large team by talking to two people a day, but it will take you five to ten YEARS to get good results.
There’s nothing wrong with that, but if you want to speed up your timeline for success, you have to talk to 20 or 30 people a day, every day for a year. If you approached 30 people a day for a year, you would talk to more than TEN THOUSAND prospects!
- If you sponsored 1 out of 20 people you talked to you would sponsor 500 people that year
- If you sponsored 1 out of 30 people you talked to you would sponsor about 333 people that year
- If you sponsored 1 out of 50 people you talked to you would sponsor about 200 people that year
How big would your group be if you could do that? And what if you could get a few of your key leaders to do the same thing?
For hypothetical purposes, let’s suppose that you closed one out of every 20 people you talked to. And let’s also suppose that you knew had to sponsor 150 people personally to find your FIVE rock stars and max out the compensation plan.
Using this hypothetical example, you would need to approach 3,000 prospects to reach your goals.
- If you talked to 2 people a day, it would take you 1500 days to reach your goal
- If you talked to 5 people a day, it would take you 600 days to reach your goal
- If you talked to 10 people a day, it would take you 300 days to reach your goal
- If you talked to 20 people a day it would take you 150 days to reach your goal
- If you talked to 30 people a day it would take you 100 days to reach your goal
Are you starting to see the power of massive action? Even if you talked to just two people a day, you could reach your goals in a little more than four years! Not bad for a part-time gig.
Most people in MLM will NEVER approach 3,000 people about their products or business. Heck, most people will never even approach 10 people. Most people do NOTHING.
The quicker you approach large amounts of people the faster your business will grow. You’ll also improve your closing rates because you will sharpen your skills. The faster you build your business the more momentum you will create. And when you create momentum, get out of the way, because there isn’t much you can do to stop it.
When I was in Amway more than a decade ago, one of my mentors told me that this is the hardest business in the world if you build it slow and the easiest business in the world if you build it fast. I have to agree with him.
The truth is, most people never even give themselves a fair chance to succeed. They don’t do what they need to do to be successful. They don’t work the numbers, they aren’t consistent and they never take massive action.
After reading this post, my challenge for you is to make a commitment to take massive action. Make a commitment to approach at least five people a day, every day, seven days a week, for a year. Even if you can just do that, there is no doubt in my mind that you will create huge momentum in your network marketing business and you will make a lot of money.
Now, you might be thinking WHERE do I find these people to contact every day? That’s the question most people ask. Quite perhaps the easiest way to do it is to buy leads. You could also advertise. Or, you could set up at local events to meet people. Or, you could cold call. Or, you could work your warm market and get referrals from each person you talk to. The options are endless. You just need to pick a strategy and be willing to invest some time and money to make it happen.
