MLM Marketing can be one of the most incredible opportunites to change your financial life. As many of us know, it can also be one of the greatest dissapointments. It is important that anytime your approach an MLM Marketing opportunity that you put your common sense hat on and be prepared to do some research. Proper planning and understanding is of major importance if you are going to be one of the success stories that you hear about. Your MLM Marketing business is going to be about People.
I personally believe that there are five key factors you must adhere to in order to push the odds in your favor.
1. You must find a product or service that you can believe in.
2. You must find an opportunity that has qualified leadership.
3. You must get yourself positioned on a team that will support your rapid growth.
4. You must be willing to go full tilt and build a wide base of operation.
5. You must find as many resources for marketing leads as possible!

Let’s talk about product or service. This is your first impression element. It is what you look at and draw that feeling, “I can do this”. It is also the same first impression that you want everyone you approach to have. Are the web sites professional and attractive. Do they give the viewer the opportunity to really understand what it’s all about. Is it something that will appeal to the masses? Does the product or service have credibility? To make a choice on an opportunity just because the web site is awesome is not good enough. You must do some research on the product you are considering. Look at the compensation package. Check on how the teams are built and does it sound like something you can do. Remember the key to MLM is to add people to your team and get them to do the same thing. Everyone helps everyone else. Does the mission statement of the product or service fill the feel good about this company glass? Does the company support non profit events, do they give back to the community? This initial discovery sets a solid foundation that you will build a life changing business around.
Take a look at the leadership in the company and follow their path to their blogs and internet backgrounds. You want to be aligned with people that have a proven track record. These people know how to make things happen and their success is always as a result of being able to get people to duplicate what they teach. You want to be aligned with someone that has taught others to be a winner. The easiest way to do this is to enter the persons name and company name or some other factor into the search engines. You will know within 10 minutes if you are entering into a relationship with someone that is a leader and can teach you the same skills.
Positioning is a very critical element. If you can find an opportunity that fits the bill of the guidelines above and you can get in at the beginning of companies growth, you greatly increase your odds of success. Please don’t misunderstand that this element is mandatory. It certainly is not. It just improves your chances of success. The key element here is to build a team of people. Everyone helps everyone! You become the leader of a team and you can build that team as big as you want. It is up to you and your hard work. Your new adventure and the excitement you bring to the roll out of your new opportunity is just as impressive as the initial roll out of the new opportunity itself. You can make any new opportunity become getting in at the top. Highly successful mlm marketers never worry about where they come in but they do love to get in at the top.
You must be ready to give it 100%. The people that get all of their ducks in a row and start that way increase their odds of success. You need that feeling, this is the most important thing I am going to do in my life and deliver the same attitude to your new team members. You must get the product yourself. Everyone has heard that in order to sell something you must believe in it. Being able to tell people your success with the product or service is paramount. Think about the people in your life that would benefit from the product or service and would love to have the same life change that you are working towards. Think about every opportunity you can come up with to expose your new adventure to as many people as possible. The beginning of the cycle is paramount to building your team growth. Rapid growth of a team starts with you and trickles down to everyone you bring in. New members fuel off of your desires and enthusiasm. Get your mojo going into high gear right now!
There comes a time in building a large MLM business that you can no longer approach friends, family and business associates. You need to have other sources of driving traffic to your new idea. Sometimes you have options with you new adventure that are offered to you. Take advantage of them as soon as possible. You also need to get active with the social media networks. People that belong to these communication platforms are always looking for opportunity for personal advancement. You have the search engines, writing articles, branding yourself and your business on the internet and paid advertising that comes in many forms. Bottom line is that making an investment in your advertising just like any major business does will fast track your growth and development. The person that sits back and says, “I think I will sict back and see if I will make any money before I invest any” is destined for failure. Can you think of any successful business that was built with no investment? Neither can I! You can only beat up your friends and family for so long and you will wear out your welcome at Thanksgiving if everyone knows you are coming to give your annual pitch. Get marketing from other sources and watch your new business explode.
Having your own MLM marketing business can be very rewarding. I have outlined some basic foundation elements that will help you get started on the right track. Whether you stay on the track or not depends on your motivation to make that happen. Anyone, anywhere can be a major success story but they have to be willing to do what it takes. Someone that says I want to be a doctor and then they don’t take steps to make it happen, has no chance of filling their ambitions. You are in charge of your destiny. Major success stories in MLM Marketing come from people that do everything right. Can you “Follow The Leader”? Good luck!
