There are so many so called MLM or Network Marketing "gurus" or "experts" out there who have a made a lot of money selling programs and systems to home business owners, but have actually never built a large sustainable network and full-time income in MLM / Network Marketing. They supposedly have all the "secrets" for success, but they've never done it. Frankly it makes me sick to see so many people in this amazing profession getting duped by these fakes.
Okay, I'm off my soapbox. I wanted to say all that so that from this point on you would invest the time to research the "experts" you encounter and see if they've actually done it and are worth listening to. In fact, I encourage you to do that with me. Go to Google and search for Rod Nichols. By the way, I'm not the baseball player or the cowboy poet. But anything you see connected to MLM or network marketing will likely be me. Also, go to Amazon and search for me and you'll find some of my books.
I'm the real deal. Just an ordinary, introverted guy who failed in MLM / Network Marketing for about 10 years, enjoyed nice part-time income for another 5 years, and have earned a full-time income for the last 15 years. I'm still building businesses and earning income in the trenches of this great profession. So, when I share some secrets, they are real.
All that said, the truth is there aren't really any "secrets" in MLM / Network marketing. If you are still looking for them, stop, you are just wasting your time. Don't go on to any other listings on Goggle, because you will just find all the same stuff re-hashed.
From my over 30 years of MLM / Network Marketing experience here are the 7 things you need to do in order to earn a full-time income:
1. Join the Right Company. Not my company (although it's a good one) or the company that your best friend is in. Not the company some hotshot guru is promoting. No, you need to join the one that is right for you. You see, I joined all those other companies during my first 10 years and none of them worked. Then I started recognizing some company features that fit me and some that didn't. You need to do the same. Do they offer a product or service you can get passionate about? Does the company have the same values you do? Does the marketing approach that the company offers fit your personality and lifestyle? Will the compensation plan enable you to quickly cover your required monthly purchase? Will it enable you to develop a full-time income within a couple years or less? If you wanted, could you build a high six or seven figure income? Do they offer the tools and systems you need? Don't get caught in the hype. Look behind the curtain. Thoroughly investigate before you join and you will find the right company for YOU!
2. Find the Right Upline Team. Once you have found the right company, now it's time to research upline teams to find the one that is going to be best for you. Again, make sure you are working with people who have the same values as you. People you will feel comfortable working with and presenting to your friends and family on 3-way or conference calls. Check to see what kind of training and on-going support they offer. Get a commitment from one of the upline leaders to mentor you weekly for at least the first 6 months, while you are learning the business. Once you have chosen a team, listen to your mentor and be coachable. Attend the upline calls, webinars, and meetings. Stay connected.
3. Build Your Business Daily for the Next 5 Years. If you have chosen a good company and upline, then there is no reason for you to not make a 5 year commitment. Work with your mentor to set 5 year goals and develop a plan to reach those goals. Break your plan down to monthly, weekly, and daily goals. Then create an action plan that will enable you to accomplish your goals. That way you will know exactly what you are doing every single day. Ask your mentor to hold you accountable to those goals and actions. Don't take days off. Don't make excuses. Talk to new people very day. Follow-up on those you have already contacted. Enroll new members of your downline. Help them become successful. The more people you help become successful, the more successful you will be.
There you go. Those are the 3 powerful secrets for MLM / Network Marketing success. If you will do those 3 things and commit to a 5 year plan, you will develop a full-time income and enjoy the life that most people just dream about.
