Effective Network Marketing Strategies


Welcome to my blog, where you will find the best network marketing information to help you to succeed in your home business.


Hello, my name is Richard Brokenshire and I’m glad you decided to visit my blog. My goal is to provide you with effective information and tools that will help you become a successful internet network marketer.


For many people, sales remain a mystery. Selling is the highest paid profession in the world, but most people never put a few pieces together to make a profit.


Sometimes they read about it for years looking for secrets and ways to breakthrough, but the money is always elusive.


Making a full time income in business is possible and many people are doing it? But how can it happen for you?


I’m absolutely convinced that a lot of people are just giving up too soon. They don’t quite master the skills that are necessary to succeed.


Here comes a really important thing … the warning part of this article:


The Internet is a fantastic tool, but it’s loaded with traps, and many people who will sell you half of the tools that you need to become successful. After all, do they really want you to build a real business? Keep in mind, if you become successful you won’t need them or their products anymore. So I’ll ask you again, do they want you to succeed?


Unfortunately they have a reputation that precedes them. It’s easy to fall for the hype when you are at your wits end and you haven’t made money yet.


On my blog you will find advice and real world action plans to help you move forward as a person and in your business life. You may find the “tough love” approach difficult to face but if you stick with it you will put it all together and finally realize the your dream of a successful business.


My first bit of advice is this:


The four main things you need to concentrate on are as follows:


1. Get yourself into profit as quickly as possible

2. Generate your own, quality leads

3. Call or contact your leads the same day as they are generated

4. Have a long term follow-up system in place


You can’t control what the industry, your company, your up line or down line does, but you can control the four things above.


Which one do you think network marketers have the most challenge with? You guessed it, #1.  We are in a money making business. If you don’t make any money, sooner or later you will have to quit.


I can tell you from personal experience that your friends and family members are not the kind of leads that your business needs. Your brother-in-law or postman are probably not the best people to try to get involved in your business. However, all of these people might be willing to support you by buying one or more of your products.


Once you are able to generate a profit, recruiting people into your company will be a bit easier. When a prospect asks you, “How much money are you making?” you’ll have a real answer.


It becomes much easier when the prospects know that you’ll be able to show them how to become profitable, like you!



Thank you!

Before you quit your network marketing business


Network marketing is a tough business to be in!


don't quit your network marketing business yet



At any given time there are probably 25% of network marketers who are in the process of quitting their businesses. That number could be higher though. I would say that up to 50% of all network marketers leave their respective companies each year.


If you are in that group of distributors, I’d like to ask you to hang on for a little while longer!


Before you quit, would you answer these three questions about you and your business.


Did you make a commitment to your business?


If you didn’t make a commitment to run your business for at least 1 year, then you probably didn’t give it any real chance of succeeding. If you bought a McDonald’s franchise would you give it 3 or 4 months to turn a profit and then when it didn’t you’d just quit? I would doubt that anyone would do that. That’s way too much money to just walk away from. You’re probably saying that network marketing isn’t a McDonald’s franchise. You’re right it’s not. It didn’t cost you $3,000,000 to get started. You probably paid a mere $300 to get started in your network marketing business. The funny thing is that the potential return of a successful network marketing business is about the same as a McDonald’s.


network marketing can pay as much as a franchise


Will you be successful in 1 year? Probably not, but you could be on your way. It does take time to build most businesses and a network marketing business is no exception. If you didn’t give your business at least 1 year of your life, then I’d suggest that you recommit and begin your 1 year, now!


Did you do the work?


There is actual work that needs to be done in network marketing and done on a regular and consistent basis. Did you do self improvement every day? You will need to improve your attitudes, your self image and self worth along with your skill level. You usually grow into your income level. The more money you want to make the better your self image, self worth and your attitudes must be. You also need to improve the skills you have as well as learn new skills that are vital to your success.


Did you talk to 1 or 2 people about your business opportunity, every day? Did you talk to 1 or 2 people about your products or services, every day? This part of your business is absolutely critical. If you aren’t talking to people, every day, you can’t expect to be successful.


Did you conquer your obstacles?


Everyone will face some obstacles in their business lives. It could be that cranky uncle who tries to tell you that you’re wasting your time doing this. It could be the critic from the cold market who tries to tear you down. It could be one of your own self limiting beliefs. We all face them. Some of us will let the obstacles cost us our businesses. While others will either go around them or figure out a way to break through them.


How did you answer these questions?


Before you quit, you really should give yourself a good chance to be successful. You need to recommit yourself to do the work over a long enough period of time and find a way to conquer your obstacles. Then you’ll give yourself the best chance of being successful.

They grow up so fast!



they grow up so fast


Every once in a while, I’ll write about something other than business. It’s not very often, but I’ll write about something that interested me or moves me. Today is one of those days.


I was reading about a story that Zig Ziglar used to tell at his seminars.


The story was about a woman who had a small child who kept coming in and out of the house. Every time the child came inside she would say, “Mommy come here, quick. I want to show you something.” Her mother who stop doing whatever she was doing and follow the child outside. They would watch a spider spinning a web or look at a perfectly formed maple leaf from the old shade tree in the front yard. Whatever it was, they shared it and talk about it.


The mother would then go back to her housework, only to be interrupted again and again. They had fun together!


One day a friend was visiting the mother. The little girl did what she did every day. She came in and out of the house saying, “Come here mommy.” Of course she followed the little girl outside. When they were done the mom got back to her friend. About the 4th or 5th time that this happened the friend said, “Don’t the interruptions make you mad?”


The mom looked at her and replied, “It’s a beautiful world I’ve brought her into and I like to share it with her.”


There are times when many of us forget that our children are only young once and they really do grow up so fast.


I think back to that day at the hospital when my oldest son was born. It was 7:02 am. By 8 o’clock, I was holding him as he fell asleep on my chest. A few diapers, a crash on a scooter and a few years in school and now he’s 21 years old.


My youngest son is 14 and I wonder where all that time went.


find time to spend with them


It’s quite a paradox. I’m totally exhausted all the time, but somehow I’d like it all to start over again.


I was lucky. I had a home based business that allowed me to spend a lot of time with my kids. I was able to show them this beautiful world we live. I was there to see them take their first step and to mend a cut knee when they fell off of their bikes. I was able to go to their schools at lunchtime and meet their friends. I was home to nurse them back to health when they got sick.


I was there to celebrate their triumphs and console their losses. Some of their losses were tough to go through, but we survived!


I’m so glad that I got to share their lives with them. To always be there for them. I faded into the background when they needed me to, but hey always knew that I was there for them.


I got to see things first hand. I didn’t need to wait to get home and get a report about what they did all day from a daycare provider. There’s nothing wrong with daycare providers, but why should they get to see my children take their first steps and I just get to hear about it? That just doesn’t seem right!


That makes me think of all the double income families where the parents try to watch their kids grow up, but only on the weekends. I feel bad for all that they’ve missed.


My wish is that they find a way to be able to see how their child grows up and changes along the way … every day!

Network marketing – Are you doing the work?


Will you be successful in network marketing?


network marketing success


I was on Youtube a few days ago. I was watching some top earner talking to a room full of network marketing distributors. I have to admit that I don’t know who the guy was or what company he was speaking to. I only had time to watch the first minute or two before I had to leave home. If I only watched a minute of the video, then why am I bringing this up to you?


Great question!


That first minute was so profound. I couldn’t believe my eyes and ears. That’s why!


He starts his speech with a question. “How many of you would like to rank advance this year?” Just about everyone in the audience raised their hands. I guess the few who didn’t, weren’t paying attention. Then he followed up that question with another one.


He begins to talk about deciding where you want to go and working backwards to break it down into the work you need to do on a daily basis. He said that most people could rank advance if they talked to just 2 people per day for the entire year. He looks at the audience and the camera does as well. He asks, “How many of you, that want to rank advance this year, are talking to at least 2 people per day?”


The camera pans the audience from one side to the other and not one hand is in the air. I would say that there were 150 to 250 people in that room. All of them had said that they had aspirations of rank advancing that year and yet not a single one of them was doing even a little bit of the work that would be required.


Like I said, it was a profound moment.


I stopped the video and shook my head. I was stunned. Not 1 person there was doing the work they would need to do in order to achieve their goal of advancing their rank that year. Wow!


I mean, what do I say to that?

answer to many network marketing questions

That moment certainly answered a lot of questions for me.


Is network marketing a scam? No, it’s not. It’s just that the distributors aren’t doing the work.


Why is the failure rate so high, in network marketing? Because the distributors are not doing the work.


I would love to put the network marketing naysayers and critics in front of that video! Maybe it would open their eyes!


As far as I am concerned, that speaker should’ve put down the magic marker and looked at everyone in the audience and said, “If you aren’t willing to do the minimum amount of work, I can’t help you.” He should’ve walked off the stage, at that point. He would’ve made a bigger impression than anything else he could’ve done or said.


My question to you is this, are you doing the work? Are you at least doing the minimum amount of work that a distributor should be doing? Or are you going to be another statistic that fuels the critics of our industry?


Wouldn’t you rather be someone who talked to 2 people per day or better yet, one who talks to 5, 10 or maybe even 20 people per day and does well in this business?


If you are going to be a top earner or even someone who is profitable in this business, you are going to have to do the work!
