Today, I want to talk about why you should take 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 three 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.
How to Take Massive Action in Your MLM Business
To really succeed in this industry, you have to do what most people aren’t willing to do. This business truly is a numbers game and the only way to work the numbers is to take massive action, and do it quickly and consistently.
Yes, you can build a large team by talking to two people a day, but it will take you at least five to ten YEARS to get good results doing that.
There’s nothing wrong with doing that, but if you want to speed up your timeline for success, you should talk to MINIMUM 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 1,500 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 why you should take massive action in your MLM Business? 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.
The Cold Hard Facts
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 with the business, and them blame the company (or their sponsor) for their failure. It’s a sad reality in our industry.
The quicker you approach large amounts of people, the faster your business will grow. After all, this a business of exposures. Whoever makes the most exposures wins!
If you’re talking to lots of prospects every day, you’ll also improve your closing rates because you will sharpen your skills. The faster you build your network marketing 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. After more than 13-years to think about that wisdom, 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. That describes 98% or more of the people our industry.
After reading this post, my challenge for you is to make a commitment to take massive action in your MLM Business. Make a commitment to approach minimum 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.
If you’re REALLY serious about your network marketing business, make a commitment to approach 30 prospects per day for a year.
Where Do I Find These Prospects?
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 and call them.
You could also advertise online or offline. Or, you could set up at local events to meet people. Or, you could cold call prospects. Or, you could work your warm market and get referrals from each person you talk to.
You could do postcard marketing. You could hand out drop cards. You could advertise in your local newspaper. Or, you could do pay-per-click advertising online.
The options are endless. You just need to pick a lead generation strategy that works for you, and be willing to invest some time and money to make it happen. Focus on ONE strategy and get really good at it.
If I could only suggest one strategy, it would be to work the phone. The phone is your friend. You could easily talk to 30 people a day by phone, working your business just two hours per day. The only real question you have to ask yourself is “Will I do it?”.
The 10X Rule
There is a guy named Grant Cardone. I am a HUGE fan of his. He has a book and mantra called the 10x Rule. Basically, it states that you need to 10x your goals if you really want to achieve great things. Setting small goals won’t cut it, because small goals won’t force you out of your comfort zone.
On the other hand, if your goals are HUGE, you will be forced to do more with your business. You will be forced to take massive action.
Even if you come up short, and don’t hit your 10x goals, you will still be much better off than you would have if you just kept your smaller goals. To me, this is just another way of saying take massive action in everything you do!
What Can You Do Now?
If the thought of taking massive action in your MLM Business and contacting 30 people per day sounds overwhelming, I can offer you an easier solution. Just increase your current activity level. If you are currently talking to two people per day about your business opportunity, start talking to four people per day.
Do that for a few weeks and then double your activity level again and start talking to 8 people per day. Do this over a period of a few months and you can be up to 30 exposures per day in no time. Just get started, increase your activity level and keep doing it.
