Take Massive Action in Your MLM Business: What it Means

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.

take massive actionMost 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.

What are your thoughts about taking massive action to grow your network marketing business? What does it mean to you?  Leave a comment below to let me know what you think.  I look forward to hearing from you.

    I have often heard network marketers complain that they are just not getting enough customers or distributors. They claim they set goals and are reaching them, but the numbers are still not meeting their needs or desires. This is where I say a person does need to take massive action.

    Personally, at this point, I will look at all my goals and develop a plan. I will double all those goals for a 30 day period. If the idea is to sponsor 3 people per week, I will make that number 6. Every goal I have will be double, and I will go above and beyond to reach it. Mind you, this also means putting in more time. If the goal was to spend 1 hour per day, that needs to be changed to 2 hours per day.

    This is a great way to take massive action and your network marketing business will have great things happen.

        Yes, and you will usually find that the massive action you take works so well, you will usually want to keep using the action you took. It is amazing how just adding 5-10 people you talk to daily can add dollars to your bank account. Just 1 extra hour a day really isn’t that much time. If we really consider how much time we spend doing things that don’t count we can easily find the time to do a few things that can really add to our network marketing business. Treat it as a real business. Just imagine that you put your life savings into it and you will want to. It isn’t that hard.

          It’s true, you can make excuses or you can make money. Very few people have the ability to stay focused and follow through. Those that do typically do very well in the business.

    When you break the numbers down as you did here Chuck, it makes the whole job seem so much easier. This is something I need to do more often. By breaking our goals down into easy to reach numbers, it provides motivation.

    When we look at the big number, it can be demotivating. If the goal is to sponsor 100 people in 1 year, that may seem like an unreal goal, but when you break it down into just talking to 10 people a day about the opportunity. That is easy. Anyone out in public at all talks to many more than 20 people a day. It could be on social media, the phone, or in person. The whole system is simple when you break the numbers down.

    Thanks for the reminder.

      Breaking down goals into smaller pieces is a wise move. It makes the things we wish to accomplish more attainable and helps make the bigger picture seem more achievable. The example you used does a great job of demonstrating this point. Generating prospects seems overwhelming, but if you break it down as you did it almost seems like there is no way you cannot achieve the goal of reaching out to that many people.

    It amazes me when I find very timid people within this line of work. I often wonder how on earth they are able to make connections when they find it overwhelming to start a simple conversation. It is true that you have to be bold and talk to a lot of people each day, which is honestly a lot easier than you may think. I go to at least 4 locations each day (usually more) to handle different errands and tasks throughout my day. If I generated a conversation with a group of individuals while waiting in line alone I would probably meet the 20 people per day mark. I think it is about being really aware of the opportunities you have and having the confidence to take them.

      Yes, the average person comes in contact with at least 50 to 100 people a day. If you’re willing to stick out your hand and say “hi” you can have a never ending supply of leads.
