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!

I don’t have the time


For network marketing


do you have time for network marketing


The “I don’t have the time” is a very popular objection to joining a network marketing business. I know how they feel. I joined a network marketing business and I can hardly find the time either. I’m motivated to do this business and it’s hard for me, think about how difficult it would be for someone who is on the outside looking in.


They have a 40 hour per week job and that doesn’t include the commute time or the time getting ready to go to work. They probably have a family, that they get to see for a couple of hours during the week. They have a little more time on their weekends. However, they still have errands to run and chores to do around the house.


How can we be expected to build a business in our spare time? What spare time? I don’t have any spare time. Do you?


I’m not sure that anyone really does, nowadays. We all have such busy lives that we barely see our friends and family members. We barely have time to live our lives.


For most people, in network marketing, a lack of time doesn’t really matter. That’s because they aren’t really do anything. In fact, I would hazard a guess that most people never even get out of the starting gate, let alone run the race. That may be a bit brutal, but it’s true.


For some network marketers, compensating for a lack of time is just a matter of prioritizing their lives. They have the same problems that most people have. They start out with 40 to 50 hours of their week taken up by a full time job. They try to have a life, on the weekends. They do all they things that the rest of us do, they’re just willing to change some of their priorities. Yes, it may mean making some sacrifices. They may have to stop watching television. They might not be able to go to the movies on a Saturday night. They may need to quit the bowling league. Why would they want to do that? Isn’t that part of living their life?


Well, yeah. Most people enjoy watching a show like NCIS or Game of Thrones, but those things are not getting them any closer to realizing their dreams or reaching their goals. Successful people are willing to give up an hour of television if it means pursuing their goals and dreams.


watch tv or network marketing


Is that all you have to do to be successful? Just give up an hour of television per day? I guess the short answer is no. I’d love for it to only take the kind of investment to be a success, but alas, it will take more time than that each day to become successful. An hour per day is a great start, though! If you can start by really working that hour, then you can achieve some positive results and this in turn will convince you that you can be a success in your business. Once you’re convinced, you’ll be more willing to find other things that you can do or not do in order to make more time for your business activities.


For those people who are outside of the network marketing industry, they may have lost their dreams. They may have given up on them. Their goals are just to be able to pay the bills every month. They want to be left alone. They want to go through the motions and get it over with.


They had such high hopes and dreams when the turned 18, but life slowly creeps in and those dreams fade away. The reality of life ends up making them believe that dreams are for people who are asleep.


They’ve been disappointed and demoralized by life. Maybe they’ve given up or maybe they think that, eventually they’ll get to “it.” Whatever “it” is to them. Maybe popping open a beer and watching MacGyver is really what they want to do.


If you are thinking about joining a network marketing business, that’s great, but know that it does take a lot of work. You will need to make the time, in your busy life, to be able to do the work. Are you prepared to make those kinds of sacrifices, in your life? Are you willing to give up your favorite TV show in order to work your business? If not, then I’d suggest starting an eBay business and not quitting your day job!

It’s all about the timing


In network marketing


timing is critical in network marketing



Let’s say they you and I both own a corner hamburger stand. We decide to have a contest to see who can sell the most hamburgers in a day. We each get to pick an advantage. An advantage is a scenario that gives you an advantage over me. What do you pick?


Would you want to have the best tasting hamburgers? That’s important. Would you prefer to have the best location. You know what they say about location. Would you want the the lowest priced hamburgers? People are always looking for cheap eats. Or is there some other advantage that you’d like to have over me?


Okay, time’s up. What did you pick?


What did I pick?


For me, I’d want to be put in front of a big group of very hungry people. I would imagine that would trump any advantage that you picked. Who do you think is going to win our contest?


You see you could have the best location, with the best tasting hamburgers that are the lowest priced, but if everyone has already eaten lunch, you’d have a very difficult time selling a single hamburger.


It really is all about the timing.


This applies to network marketing as well. I believe that everyone thinks about changing something in their lives and they do that at least once every year. It may only be around January 1st, but they do think about making changes to themselves.


Someone may have a bad week or two at a job, that they really didn’t like in the first place and that may be the right time for them to change careers. Someone may pop a button on their shirt and decided that it’s time to lose weight. Someone may chase their 2 year old up a flight of stairs, be out of breathe and they decide to make a change and get into shape.


The biggest problem that we, as network marketers, face is knowing when that time comes. Honestly, there’s no way for us to really know. It could be today, tomorrow, next week or some time later in the year.


It may be a passing thought and the person doesn’t act on the thought. It may last a few days or a few months. If they don’t act on those thoughts, it must not be the right time or maybe they will never make the changes.


The prospect sees what the network marketers are doing to them and they think, to themselves, “I don’t want to do what they’re doing!” What does the prospects do? They run away as fast as they can and try to avoid you.


Is there another solution?


Yes. You can treat people the way that you would want to be treated and if the time isn’t right for that person, just stay in touch with them. It’s called following up. It’s not difficult, but most people don’t like to do it. This is exactly why it is so effective. No one else does it.


 is the timing right for him


You want a rematch?


Okay, I feel like I had an unfair advantage in our first contest. I’ll tell you what. Let’s have another contest and see if you can beat me this time.


This time we both sell weight loss products. In fact, we sell the same weight loss products. What advantage would you like to have this time?


I have a feeling that you said that you’d like to be put in front of a large group of overweight people. Am I right?


What did I pick?


I’d like to be put in front a large group of overweight people, who are ready to lose weight. I think I still win!


You see, it’s all about the timing.


You got yourself in front of a group of people who might need to lose weight, but I got myself in front of people who are ready to make that change. Who sells more products?


In network marketing, timing is everything! Whether you are retailing or recruiting, you need to know that it’s the right time for someone to make a change in their lives. It’s up to you to ask the right questions to find out if they are ready now or would they prefer to wait to make that change?


I hope this makes a difference to your business! Good luck!

Should you join a network marketing company?

Is network marketing right for you?


is network marketing right for you


Owning a business is not everyone’s cup of tea. A lot of people, in fact most people, don’t like the uncertainty of owning a business. Most people are just fine putting in their 40 hours and working 40 years. They won’t get rich, but they will be comfortable. They’ll have a nice home, a nice car and be able to put food on the table. They’ll be able to take their 2 or 3 weeks of paid vacation and they feel pretty good about their lives.


There’s absolutely nothing wrong with doing that. That’s why most people want a good job.


Then there are those people, who have jobs, but they know that there is more out there. They have that gnawing feeling, they would like to be able to be in control of their own lives. They have the self employment bug. Even with that bug, most people won’t venture out into the business world. It’s a scary place to be, especially when you’ve never been there before.


There are many people who don’t mind taking the plunge and trying to run a business of their own. I salute those that try!


This article is for those people who have that bug in them, but don’t know if they should attempt to go into business for themselves and if they do decide to own a business, should it be a network marketing business.


Here are a few characteristics that I think someone should have in order for them to even think about starting a business, of any kind. Here are 6 things that network marketer should have inside themselves.


I like to see people who have an entrepreneurial spirit.


This can be anything from having already been in a business for themselves all the way back to having run a lemonade stand when they were a kid. Anything that shows that you have the spirit to be in a business! Having a lemonade stand as a kid tells me a lot about the person. They have that sense of adventure in them, that I like see. They are someone who likes to take chances and they believe in themselves.


I like to see people who are well connected.


It’s true that 80% of people who join a network marketing company will do so through a person in their warm market. I want a person who has a lot of friends and also someone who has a lot of influence in that group of people. Are you the “go to person” for recommendations? Do you tell people about a movie and they go to see it? When you recommend a restaurant, do they go eat there? If this is you, then you could succeed in network marketing.


Are you coachable?


Can you operate and learn advertising and marketing systems from someone else? Are you a team player? Can you learn the skills that you need in network marketing? Can you work with a coach? If this is you, you can succeed in network marketing.

I like to see someone who isn’t afraid of hard work.


I don’t mean heavy lifting, but it will take a lot of diligence and work to get to the top. If you think that you will “give this a try,” then it’s not for you. If you like working with people and helping them to succeed, then this may be the right place for you.


Are you willing to commit to this venture?


Success in anything, rarely happens in overnight. Most overnight success happens because of years of hard work. You need to make a 3 to 5 year commitment and commit to working at this business every day. If you are willing to stick with this business for 3 to 5 years, you could be successful in network marketing!


Do you have a thick skin?


All businesses are difficult. You will run into people who tell you “No,” a lot. Network marketing may be harder than most types of businesses and it’s not for the faint or heart. If you get your feelings hurt when someone tells you “No,” this may not be for you. If getting turned down rolls off your back, then you could be successful in network marketing.

These are the 6 characteristics that I like to see in people who are interested in owning a network marketing business. If you feel like you have most of these characteristics, then I would like to talk to you!
