Two or Three People Can Change Your Life in Network Marketing

It’s true, two or three people can change your life in network marketing.  Interview just about any top earner from any company and you will find that most of their income (at least 80%) comes from 1-3 key people in their downline.  Chew on that for a moment.

I watched one video on YouTube and a top earner personally sponsored 129 people, yet 95% of his income came from just five of those people.  And I watched a different video where they did a panel with top earners and all of them said that a large majority of income (at least 80%) came from five or fewer people!

Here’s what I’ve found.  If you sponsor 100 people personally, about 70 to 80 of them will do little to nothing, about 15-20 will do something consistently and 1-3 of them will go out and build a HUGE team.  Of course, individual results will vary slightly, based upon the quality of person you are sponsoring, your experience, etc.

The bottom line is that you aren’t looking for hundreds of key people.  Ideally, you are looking for 2-5 of your personally sponsored people who are committed for the long haul, have a burning desire to succeed and aren’t scared to do the work.  You want people who are coachable, self-motivated and are looking to improve their quality of life.

Yes, you will probably have to go through a lot of people to find these few key people, but in the long run it will be so worth it!

What would it be worth to you financially to have someone you personally sponsor go on to build a team of 10,000 to 100,000 or more people?  For most people, the residual you would earn just from that one person would be completely life changing.

The real beauty of network marketing is that these 2-5 people don’t even have to be personally sponsored.  They can be in depth in your organization as well.  And in most cases that’s where you will find them.

Think about this for a moment.  What if I buried five gold bars in your backyard behind your house.  How long would it take you to get a shovel and start digging?  Wouldn’t you start right away?  Wouldn’t you work around the clock until you found those gold bars?  I know you would.

Well, the same holds true in network marketing.  You have to shovel a lot of dirt and sift and sort through a lot of people, but eventually you will find your gold.  And when you do it is payday!

Never forget that.  Always keep your eyes and ears open for sharp people.  This includes your prospects and people in your team.  Whenever you find gold, or someone with the potential, make it a point to offer them your help.  Work with them closely if they will let you.

Be their mentor and show them by your personal example what they should be doing.

That is how fortunes are made in network marketing.  What do you think?  Do you think 2-3 key people can change your life in network marketing?  Leave a comment below to share your thoughts.

  1. I agree!

    But, we have to make sure that we don’t get into a “cherry picking” mode where we are turning people away that we don’t think will be superstars.

    I believe there are probably some network marketers who have done very well without any superstars. They have done it with a team of part timers who each do a little. If we just keep building retail customers, and sharing the business opportunity, good things will happen.

    It is a process of sifting and sorting. You may find some gold dust or a gold bar, but you just may find a little silver or copper too. They are all worth keeping and refining. Hopefully, you see my point.

  2. Great analogy and sound advice. MLM is not just about acquiring the largest team possible but, as you said, investing in quality people. It’s a smart business practice and is proven to work. Remember that someone once believed in you and invested their time to help you develop skills and a network. With the right investments, these people you are helping to grown will turn around the help others and creating a chain of strong leaders.

  3. I’ve taken it upon myself to mentor 4 individuals within my organization who I consider to be very promising. They are consistent, dedicated, and focused which makes them huge assets. Another positive trait is that they are eager to learn which makes the mentoring process a lot more rewarding for me personally and professionally.

    1. I admire people who have the time and patience to personally mentor others. I have done it before but it seems I always get the ones who think everything will be easy and they will not have to work hard. I have had a few good ones over the years and i continue to work with people so I can try to make their time in marketing better- but the good ones seems few and far between lately.

  4. I have seen first hand the power and influence a few people can have. They can carry you to new heights or sink you to lower depths. Make or break- every person you work with is important and it can boil down to one person making all of the difference. This is why it is so important that you know and trust your team members.

    1. It’s true, a few people can make a huge difference. In any organization, inside or outside of MLM, there are typically a few game changer people that are the spirit and lifeblood of a business. These are the irreplaceable people who really make a big difference and produce most of the results.

  5. I really appreciate that you continue to stress in your posts that you really can rely on just a few people on your team to generate most of your success. I have heard over and over again that MLM business people should “recruit, recruit, recruit”. I am sure that there is some value in that: recruit a large number of people and certainly some of them will be committed, willing to work hard, and stick with it. But it just makes more sense to keep your eyes and ears open for those few who are “gold”, just as you say.

    1. Look at any sales force in any organization in America and you will quickly discover that a select few people count for a LARGE percentage of the total sales. These are the producers who make the cash registers ring. Of course, everyone else is important too, but the sales managers focus spending most of their time helping and supporting the top producers. The same should hold true in network marketing.
