This post just may help you discover the winning edge you need to building a list and wining in your Network Marketing business!
One of the first steps to network marketing is to build a list of people to approach.
Relax; you're not approaching them yet!
You're just considering who you can add value to.
Before I go on, I must let you know this process is what you should learn in the beginning from leaders. If your sponsor doesn't have an on boarding process that teaches you the first steps to making you better and to start building your business then you my friend are in the right place today.
Network Marketing Tips: Laying The Ground Work To Building A List
Over the course of the next few minutes I will share what I learned from the first team and company I was involved with.
Just maybe you have had a similar experience where you didn't get the essentials you needed to get started correctly. Or maybe you did yet it is not totally working for you! Either way spending the next few minutes may help you win!
You think of things like, “This one's too poor. This one's too rich. This one's too busy.
This one already has a business,” and you'll want to keep them off.
You can never tell what a person needs or wants, and each time you edit you may be removing someone who could be a valuable member in your organization.
Remember you are building your future and your list is your biggest asset in this business model. Those thoughts I mentioned just a moment ago you may have about people as you are building your list are simply not going to put your list in asset mode. Your ability to master those thoughts and build a powerful list will count on you making your list without judging.
You will learn judging your list will also tell your future self that you can't do something and plant a seed in your mind that will have you operate in fear!
Clear your mind of those thoughts and open your heart to a belief level in what you are doing is going to help them win in life and in business. Believe in what you have your hands on! Believe in your ability to simply share it with people.
Listen, I don't want you distracted anymore, more network marketing tips are coming, and your goal here today is to get on with making your list.
Network Marketing Tips: List building System
So take out a sheet of paper, or open an excel file, and start making your list.
Come up with 52 names from the following groups:
- Your relatives
- Your friends
- People you work with
- People you play sports with
- People you meet in church
- Parents of your children's friends or classmates
- Former classmates, co-workers
- Anyone else you can think of
The Four Aces
Why 52, you ask?
Sounds like an arbitrary number, doesn't it?
You may list more if you like.
It helps to think of these 52 as representing a standard deck of cards (excluding the Joker) if you have one handy, get it now so you can do this experiment.
There are four suits in a deck of cards, and each suit has an ace.
Now, suppose you were to flip the cards face up, one at a time, scoring a point each time you get an ace.
What are your chances of landing one?
The answer, of course, is 1 out 13.
Count the number of cards you have to go through before getting four points.
Now imagine that each ace you get corresponds to your leader, the person who will not only join your organization but will step up and make your business boom.
Your chances of finding this person are also around 1 in 13, and it's likely that you'll go through many others to get to them.
What does that tell you?
It makes sense not to expect you'll find this person on the first presentation or even the first invite.
If it happens, great, if it doesn't, just move on.
There are still other people to meet, and you may even go through four, six, even 12 other people before finding the right one.
In the long run, invitation is still a numbers game.
Do it long enough and you'll find your four aces without fail.
Network Marketing Tips: Who's First?
So now you have a list of 52 people whom you know and who know you.
You can start calling them alphabetically, if you like.
But if you want your business off the ground fast, you ought to rank the people who are ready now, more than some of the others.
Here's a simple technique to help you do that.
First, go through your list and draw a star next to the names of the people who are married, have kids, caring for their elderly, or otherwise have dependents.
Second, go through your list again and pick out the names of people whom you have good relations with—best friends, favorite siblings or cousins, people whom you've helped, etc.
Put a check mark next to their names.
Finally, go through your list once more and look for people in positions of influence. Managers, church leaders, speakers, CEOs, club presidents or anyone who's in charge of a group.
Put a triangle next to their names.
So, who do you prioritize now?
Those names with the complete set of stars, checks, and triangles!
Then start looking for those aces!
This simple system will save you time in inviting people and get your organization on a fast start.
Once you've finished going through these names, you may draw up another one and do the same thing over.
More importantly, you should teach it to your team too.
Once you've finished, move on to the ones with 2 kinds of marks, and so on.
Then finally approach those that have no mark.
Don't discount these last few people, as they may have their own reasons and resources you don't know about.
Because they're the ones who will most likely have good reasons to make more income (stars), will likely want to be in business with you (checks), and have the means to attract others to your organization (triangles).
