Simple & Effective Ways for MLM Leaders to Start
Suppose, you are just a college graduate or even 10 + 2 pass, then how you are going to start building a network. In fact, these strategies are equally good even if you are a highly educated. In network marketing, you just have to build a network of people.
1. Start a Conversation With Your Family & Friends
Begin a conversation with your family and friends. If you are promoting a product from a company such as Amway or Herbalife (I am not into MLM & not promoting any product here) then first you must tell about the product to your family members and close friends.
Let them know what you are promoting. Tell them the advantages of a product and bring them to your network. They are the people who will listen you even if you are a fresher into MLM. But remember don’t promote any product which can make trouble in your relationship. Don’t promote if you are not convinced yourself.
2. Go to Public Places
You can expand your network now. Tell about your product or company in public places. You can start with your school, colleges, shopping malls, subways, waiting rooms, cinema halls, parking lots etc.
Distribute handbills in public places & even through newspaper. Get as many members as you can inside your network.
3. Promote your MLM product online
If you are done with, promoting in public then you can move on to online. Here you can use various platforms to get more members into your network. User free classifieds, web 2.0 sites like Hubpages, Indyarocks, youTube etc. to promote your product with your contact details.
Personal Attributes of a Successful Network Marketer
A successful network marketer must have some qualities. You can only get more and more members inside your network if you have these 3 personal attributes.
4. A Speaker
First attribute every network marketer must have, is that he is a good orator. He must be able to speak and present himself in a dignified manner to ordinary people.
If he can speak flawlessly in any language then he can convert a lay man into becoming his network member.
5. Art of Persuasion
Just speaking to people is not enough. You have to convince them, that is why speak to them not speak at them.
A man or a woman would only be persuaded, to become a member in your network when he or she is totally convinced about your product or company.
6. A Personal Touch
If a person becomes a member of your network, then you should never forget his or her name. A good network marketer must always remember the name.
This is personal touch and other members in your network will get a good impression about you.
Expanding & Sustaining Network
Now, we have to move beyond your personal attributes. You have to expand your network and sustain memberships for a long period of time.
You have to evolve yourself and take certain responsibilities.
7. Leading From Front
In order to get more members you have to lead from front. Leadership quality is very important. You must have command on your members in the network.
Without an effective leadership, your network would never expand.
8. Clear Communication Within Network
As a network marketer, you have to manage thousands of members in your network. You have to take care that the flow of thought among various members must be clear.
Members who are under you must be able to communicate back and forth without any problem.
9. Ability to Teach & Guide
Whenever new members join network marketing under your leadership then you must have ability to teach and guide them properly. You will fail if you cannot teach them about the company you are promoting.
It is very important that every new member understands what you are doing, because later he also has to teach this to new members coming under him. Therefore, they will learn everything from you.
10. Synchronized Teamwork
Finally, you can only be successful as a network marketer when your team is working in symphony. You must inspire your team members to give their best and put all effort.
Your success totally depends upon the success of the members under you. Network marketing is a name of teamwork.
In conclusion, I would say that, MLM leader’s success totally depends upon how many members join his network & all of them remain motivated. Bigger the network, bigger the success in MLM & network marketing. Therefore, try to follow all the strategies that I talked in this article to become a successful network marketing leader.
