The Journey of a Network Marketer - Part 1

Day 7 of my new network marketing journey

So, I spent the first 5 posts talking about some experiences and helping folks find the book that changed my life... so I want to make the next 5 - 10 posts about the process.

My process as a network marketing mentor started when I just got fed up with how I, and many others were seen. You know, not being "MLM Heavy Hitters." It can be quite frustrating and if you listen to what they tell you, man... you can end up being broke with a ton of credit card bills that rival the national debt.

So, let me be completely honest... This is a day 7. Yep. Day 7 after a couple of years of research and meeting my mentor that has taken the time and patience to teach me the skills to be a network marketing pro.

Let me be real as ever right now. It's not the easiest thing in the world, branding yourself. You have to believe in yourself. You have to have a genuine desire to help others. After all of the heartache and back slides, it was a transition t…

Don't Give Up on Your Business Dreams

Who is it that I am seeking?

I am seeking anyone that has been in network marketing, mlm, affiliate marketing, or any other home based business and has not had the results in which they had hoped for.

Why? Because I want to be the first to tell you that it is NOT your fault. It isn't. 

I know how you feel. I felt the same exact way. I was there. I was down because I just couldn't seem to crack the code. Yes, I had some success. I was pushing myself to do things that I didn't want to do. I was burning bridges and tarnishing my reputation. I could have been doing it the correct way, I just wasn't taught the proper way to build a business.

You know what I found? I found out. It's not my fault. I am not the problem. I didn't have to give up on my dreams. I found that I was being used as target practice by MLM heavy hitters. I was helping someone at the top earn a huge residual while I was picking away for peanuts. Sound familiar? Yes? Then you are who I am seeking.

MLM and Network Marketing Leads

MLM and Network Marketing Leads - What is a lead, exactly?

Obtaining leads is probably one of the most frustrating things in the world for a new home business owner. Having someone to share our products, services, opportunities, and stories with is the life's blood of any successful network marketing business. 

If you type "MLM Leads" into Google, you will see page after page of lead companies that will sell you people's information that they have harvested from a capture page or by various other methods. 

I can honestly say that, in the past, I bought leads. Yep. I did. You know what else? Not one person that I ever sponsored from a purchased lead stuck with it. Why? They couldn't duplicate this method. Purchased leads are expensive. And half the time, they are not even a prospect. (that's a whole other story altogether)

Back to the question, "What is a lead, exactly?"

Well, personally... I don't like to refer to people I wish to sponsor into my org…

Network Marketing is a Relationship Business - Why so many people fail

The reality of a home based business kicks in shortly after the signup...

So many of us got involved with network marketing or mlm with the idea that we are going to plug in, post some links, grow our downline just like magic and we are an instant success. This could not be any further from the truth.

The sad truth is that many will quit. Not because they are terrible marketers. Not because they don't have exceptional products or they decided to partner with a bad company. Unfortunately, this is what gives this amazing industry a bad name. So what is the reason that so many people fail in network marketing and mlms?

Ready for the hard truth? Are you sure?

Okay... the reason so many fail in home based businesses is because they try to promote a product or business opportunity and not what really matters. What really matters? The RELATIONSHIPS matter. Let's look at this closely.

Why Network Marketing is a Relationship business and not a sales business...

Mentoring for Network Marketing Growth

Why I chose to seek a MentorWell, maybe a large nutshell. I had a notion about 15 years ago that I wanted to work from home. I wanted to make money by sitting at my computer and clicking a mouse. Boy was I in for a rude awakening. I found out the hard way, that's just not how it works. I ended up falling into a few traps and learning that there were some snakes out there and they were ready to coil around your neck and suck you dry.After a few years of getting to that "almost" point, I gave up. I put those dreams aside and decided to go back to school. All the while, I kept dreaming and knowing that there must be a way for me to own my own business from home and earn a great income doing it. I started following the Law of Attraction and that led me to a person that I really admired and I found myself working with a close family member of theres in a Network Marketing business that did start off in a great way. I was building a team and at a pretty good rate. I had loyal …
