How to Succeed At Network Marketing: I know the picture that most likely comes up in your mind whenever you hear about network marketing; a sales person, dressed officially, and moving around trying to convince his family members, friends or a passer-by about registering and buying a product, mostly herbal medicines, and then telling them to also register their own relatives and friends to start making money.
Well, this picture may be slightly distorted as it is not every network marketer that walks about under the sun looking for who to coerce into joining a network.
The world is now connected by the internet which helps the network marketer to reach a large number of people at once and easily exchange ideas with them.
Also, products are not limited to a range of herbal medicines, in fact, some do not even sell a physical product, it just takes someone with the right ideas and the right words and profitable connections can be established.
But one thing is certain, just like every other endeavour that brings wealth, hard work and dedication must be involved to network marketing success.
One thing though distinguishes really successful network marketers from the others who work hard with little results; that thing is mentorship.
Getting the right mentor is vital to network marketing success because in building a large and robust network structure, they must be a firm foundation.
In network marketing, you cannot just begin with nothing and expect to end up with something. Always remember that you are dealing with people who will have their own opinion of the product you are selling or whatever idea that you are introducing.
They must have to see a track record, the experience or the real value in what you are offering them, and you cannot get all of this by mere chance or simply by hard work. You need someone who has done it before, someone who can guide you from marketing pitfalls and offer you a solid template on which to build on, you need a mentor.
How to Succeed at Network Marketing: Build on a successful set of Principles
Study the patterns and models on which your mentor operates and learn from it to launch your own. Following a set of tested principles that have led to success gives you a better shot at success. It does not have to be exactly the same mode of operation but you have to learn from your mentor carefully before modifying the plan to suit your unique purpose.
How to Succeed at Network Marketing: Aim at a Specific Goal
A mentor gives you a target to aim at. You are driven by his/her success to achieve your own. From what has already been done by a mentor, you can now frame a list of specific goals that you know is very achievable because someone else who you know and are learning from has done something spectacular too.
In network marketing, it is very important that you have a target, and a mentor helps you identify one. As Zig Ziglar puts it, “If you aim at nothing, you will hit it every time,” with the guidance of a mentor, you learn to make and achieve targets, establish and maintain connections, introduce a product and make sales, you set a target and hit it!
