Network Marketing Success Skills - Street Smart Wealth

Each day we make decisions in our Network Marketing business. We either move closer to success or further away with these decisions.

We decide to meet new people, share what we do, make an offer, follow up. Or, we decide not to. Don’t confuse meeting people online with DMs that just pitch.

We decide to try, test, learn and relearn the business skills that create Network Marketing success. Or, not.

Success is a series of failures; growth and learning opportunities. We never grow if we don't try.

Asking for the sale and the close can be challenging if you aren’t skilled at it. Notice I said “skilled.” This means it can be learned. I struggled for a long time until I learned the right technique.

First, know who you ideal client is and more specifically, know their greatest challenge or the problem they want solved.

This is where so many in network marketing make a mistake. They assume everyone is their audience. And, while this might be true, especially in the online world - when you speak to everyone, you speak to no one.

People don’t always like to be sold, but they do like to be included. They want to be part of something. They want to belong and they want their problem solved.

Do you know how to share this? Are you sharing it regularly? Are you comfortable and confident with good success language to invite them into your inner circle, in a way that makes it a no brainer for them?

I have sponsored over 2500 people into my network marketing business and I did it all without ever feeling uncomfortable asking them to join or get started.

What is Network Marketing?

Have you ever struggled with how to explain network marketing as a business system? Without overwhelming someone? 

Most people struggle with this, so let me break it down for you. 

Network Marketing is a business system; franchising is also a business system. It’s a way of moving products and services into the market place and paying the consultants or sales team, if you will, who markets and creates sales.

We'll cover the 3 exciting concepts of:

TIME LEVERAGE
RESIDUAL INCOME
SYSTEM OF DUPLICATION

Do you keep your network marketing business in the closet, seldom talking about the products or the opportunity itself? WHY is this?

Do you not know what to say? Do you fear being salesy? Many people struggle with both of these and it confuses me.

You are simply sharing a concept and looking for interest. If you don’t want to go into sales mode, then DON’T. Write out how you will share what you do.

There is an art to this. It’s a learned skill set - good communication and sales copy. Sales copy works because it doesn’t seem like sales.

I teach how to write copy that sells in the Street Smart Wealth Academy, specifically for Network Marketers. How to craft the perfect success language that fits and feel right for you.

It doesn’t matter how long it takes you to succeed in Network Marketing, if you stay in the game and keep committed to figuring it out, you will accomplish your goals.

My 3 Year “Failure Learning Experience.”

I’ve been a network marketing professional since 1994, when I signed up as a representative in my first network marketing company. I was far from a professional, back then.

I was a slightly burned out stay home mom - loved being home, but was a little bored, to be honest. I wanted more. I wanted to have both a thriving business and a successful family where I was home, raising my children.

You can learn more about my big fat zero to ultimate hero story at my blog, StreetSmartWealth.com

The 3 year failure that I’m talking about today is not the first 3 years. It happened in the last few years, actually.

And, wasn’t actually a failure at all, but it sure felt that way for awhile.

The year was 2016.

Almost 4 years ago, to be exact.

It’s not complicated, even though we try to make it that way. The #1 skill set to learn for your network marketing business is how to meet people. People are the lifeblood of your business and you must be adding to your database regularly.

Your database is simply your names list. Ideally, you have a lot of details on them and they are more than just Facebook friends, but that is a start.

Currently, with the pandemic, meeting people is mostly done online, or via the phone. YES, the old fashioned phone. Or, send a text.

The key is to not go all weirdo when meeting people. You are doing just that - meeting people. Taking a genuine interest and learning more about them.

Does this sound familiar?

I’m really trying in my business, but how do I deal with an unsupportive spouse?

The easiest way to get your spouse on board is through open communication. Before this conversation takes place, make a REAL decision - are you fully committed to making a success of your business?

What things from the past might be driving this challenge? Perhaps you’ve signed up for other network marketing businesses and programs before and not made a go of it?

Does your spouse support you in most areas?

Does your spouse understand how a Network Marketing business works? Is it just a lack of education?

So often we are taught scripts and what to say once we’ve made our “hot prospect” list for our Network Marketing business.

Ask these questions, say this, and then say this.

The challenge here is that it is not authentic; it’s too scripted and all too often leads to resistance with your potential ideal client or team partner because subconsciously, they sense that this conversation is not authentic and is forced.

If you’d like a simple formula to open a conversation where you can engage in authentic listening, start with asking a question such as - Tell me about you…

And then listen with no agenda. Don’t be prepared to pounce when they give you the slightest segue into a conversation about your program.
