In times of recession, network marketing companies have historically see an increase in their businesses. But for so many distributors, the majority I suspect, their home-based business has not enjoyed the same kind of growth. As a result many will drop out long before they have given their business the time or energy needed to see a profit. This article is directed to those distributors that are willing to put forth the effort to find out what is failing them. The two areas to look at are your product and yourself.
There are thousands of great products out there you can become a distributor of but some are a better choice than others. To give you an example, if I came to you with two products and I told you that they both did the same thing for you and cost relatively the same but in one hand I had a a pill and the other hand I had a piece of chocolate, which would you choose? If I was to ask 100 people the same question what do you think the majority would choose? The chocolate right? So which product would you want to represent? In the health and wellness area alone there are healthy drinks such as Monavie, Tahitian Noni and even a healthy chocolate drink called Xocai Activ. And there are vitamin supplements from hundreds of companies. Choose the product that most know they already like. And when choosing your product to represent think about how big your market is, how saturated it is with representatives and really how sexy the product actually is! Chocolate occupies the most expensive real estate at the supermarket, at the check-out area, and it is eaten by 1 billion people a day! So the chose your product carefully, cause it can make your life as a network marketer a lot easier.
The second area to take a hard look at is yourself. Not too many people out there are willing to give themselves an unbiased review of their efforts. But if you will take an inventory of yourself it might save you a lot of headache. First look at your commitment. Do you know your product backwards and forwards? Have you considered who your competition is? How many hours are you willing to put forth into your business? Are you one of the thousands that signed up and do absolutely nothing?
One of the best suggestion I can give you is to find mentors who are willing to put in the time with you to help you become successful. Now read that sentence again. I did not say find someone that will do the work for you. I said find someone who will help you. The program I am a part of consist of a team of mentors, not just one, and I am able to contact them when I’m in need. One of the mentors is the number 2 income earning producer with the company. Think he might have some helpful tips for me? Absolutely! A team of mentors can save you a lot of time and money trying things they know will not work. If your not a part of a team that is mentoring you, I suggest you find a new team.
Network marketing can be a very rewarding field. Spend time choosing your product. Know your product so others see you as the expert that you are. Finally, surround yourself with a team of mentors and you will find the success your looking for. There is a reason they call it “network marketing”
