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.
