Came across a great article on mindset by Michael Hyatt. It’s a great way to see negatives as positives. Do this everyday and I guarantee you’ll see changes in your own life and your business.

In 2003, I was named President of Thomas Nelson. It was an extremely busy time. I made some major changes to my executive team and had two vacant positions. As a result, I essentially had three jobs.

One morning on my way to work, I grabbed my computer case in my right hand, a fresh cup of coffee in my left and headed downstairs to the garage to leave to work.

Four steps from the bottom, I slipped on the carpet. Without a free hand to grab the stair-rail, I tumbled forward. The next thing I knew, I was flat on my fanny on the landing.

I wasn’t immediately aware of any pain. However, my dress shirt and tie were soaked in coffee. I remember thinking, Shoot! I’m going to have to completely change my clothes. This was particularly frustrating, because I was already running late, and I had a very busy day ahead of me.

Do you know what really makes a good MLM lead, and what does not? There are some requirements and considerations must be ten into consideration when evaluating leads. The actual lead is only a small part of what qualifies a really good MLM lead. Also, a good MLM lead is only a small part of the total package of a good leads company.

Quality of the MLM lead

The quality of lead is everything. Let me say that again, the quality of the lead is everything. Many websites tout that they have the greatest leads on the planet. However, after purchasing your list you call them and find out that they are much less than what a should be expected in an MLM lead. All the glimmer in the world on a great looking website does not guarantee great leads.

Training on How to Work the MLM leads

Some sites do offer what they preach and provide great lists of leads. However, they offer nothing to help with turning those great leads from names and numbers into customers. Or depending on what you are using these leads for turning these leads into reps for your company. Some companies will offer online training, some will have CDs and other training you can purchase. The best training I advise is live training. If you know that you can call and ask a question or have a direct person that can help you when you have a question is the best and worth it.Continue reading

“I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career…

I’ve lost almost 300 games…

26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed…

And that is why I succeed.”

How does someone in the network marketing business start new lead generation once their warm market has been used up? The most important thing that you should be doing with your business is connecting with people and making them successful. However, once you’ve presented your program to all your friends and family what’s next?

Network Marketing Lead Generation

There are many ways to build a successful MLM company. Look at any company and you’ll see that the top income earners have spent most of their time finding people, showing their program and following up with them. The difference is how they do it.

Some do it the “traditional” way. Hand out business cards, setup meetings, face-to-face, present their program and follow up with them individually.

Some people will be moving over from another MLM program where they’re already a top income earner and they bring their team with them to do the same with the new company. They have spent enough time coaching the people who work with them to success that they follow them and provide them the initial push to profit.

Some people will purchase qualified leads and pick up the phone. Then rank the people they speak with and follow up with them accordingly.Continue reading

network marketingNetwork marketing companies start up every day with claims of the best plan. Or that they are the best home business for you. To help make the decision here are some basic tips that will help you decide.

Choose A Network Marketing Company That Has Products YOU Want To Buy

What you will be offering to people is an opportunity. That opportunity is only going to be as good as the product it has. If what the company sells you would not buy, then how are you going to convince others to start a business built around it? If you find a few MLM companies that have products you want, try them! In the end you will do much better knowing your product and being passionate about it. This will save (and make) you a lot of money in the long run.

Too Good to be True? It Almost Definitely Is

This is a very old saying that still holds true. Make sure to do your research on a company. Check out the compensation plan. If the payouts seem super high, see if the system is sustainable before you commit. Remember you are starting a new network marketing business, the business you start has to be able to last. Make sure the structure allows you to make a good amount of money when you start in addition to when you are sitting at the top of the company.

Take Your Time

You are making a business decision so treat it as such. Do not let your emotions get the best of you. If you feel doubts, then take your time making your decision. Always remember that you will be representing the products you sell and they will represent you as well. You will need to sell them as well as the opportunity to other people. If you are not sure about something, the people you try selling to will feel that as well. You have to be able to explain how you got over your doubts if you want to be successful. This is essential if you want people to commit themselves to a new network marking business in their life.

Choose A Proven MLM Company

If you are new to network marketing then consider going with a stable and well known MLM company. They are that way for a reason. You can probably name three right now. Yes, you can get in extremely early with a new company and make ridiculous money. However, those people usually know the industry. They can assess a company, what it is offering, how it is setup, and whether or not it will ever get off the ground and be successful or end up failing. Very few of us have this foresight. Especially if you are just starting out. So go with a company that has been around for a little while. After you learn the ropes of network marketing you will be better positioned to join another company.

Have Fun

You are going into business to make your life better, not harder. So choose something that you can be passionate about and enjoy selling and using. There are numerous MLM companies out there so make sure to do you research and pick the right new network marketing opportunity for you.

Finally make sure to consider how, exactly, you are going to market your business. Eventually the friends and family group dissipates and you need to find new people to present your business to. Do you have enough time to build your business, a budget for advertising, and know how to build and promote? How can you pour leads into your marketing funnel on a daily basis? You can seamlessly guarantee your success if you use online network marketing lead generation systems that minimize your expenses for advertising while getting you off to a profitable fast start.
