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!

Dream stealers and other demons


Where do you draw the line?


where do you draw the line in network marketing


When someone joins network marketing they have dollar signs in their eyes. Who could blame them? After seeing the typical business plan with all of the bells, whistles and money being bantered about, the average prospect has to be thinking, “That sounds pretty easy to do. I’m going to be rich!”


A good sponsor will try to temper those feelings of elation. The “I’m going to be a millionaire!” thoughts. Having proper expectations is a big deal in network marketing.


What usually happens is that a new recruit is so full of wild eyed dreams that when they don’t make their millions in the first 60 days they just give up. That’s the worst. You spend all that time trying to recruit someone who ends up quitting in their first 60-90 days. They leave you thinking, “What happened to my new recruit. Who’s next?”


I had a chance to talk to someone who was considering joining a network marketing company. Not mine, but that’s okay. They had seen the company’s business plan and like all “new to network marketing” people, they were so excited. They told me how easy it was going to be. The prospective sponsor had told them that they thought that he would be a “millionaire in no time.”


I'm going to be rich!


My first thought was, “I can’t believe that they would tell you that you were going to be a millionaire.” I consider that to be reckless. They seem to be setting him up to fail. If he gets a slow start, what will happen? Will his sponsors be there to pick him up when he falls or will he just be another in a long line of casualties of network marketing?


I was faced with a dilemma. Do I say something to this guy or just let him run off all excited? Now, I consider this guy to be a really good prospect. I would have liked to sponsor him into my company, but it just didn’t seem to be a good fit for him. I’m okay with him signing up with another company. I think that he will be good at network marketing no matter which company he winds up with.


I’d like to see him do really well with the business, so I said something to him.


You might be thinking that it wasn’t my place to get involved with it. You might be right about that. I felt compelled to say something.


I told them that so few people ever make money in network marketing and even fewer earn $1,000,000. The percentages are minuscule. His response was, “Well, how many people in the world make $1,000,000?


who wants to be a millionaire


It’s an interesting question, but I’m not sure that it is directly related to what we were talking about. In case you are interested … The answer is about 8.2% of American households are considered to be millionaires. Which is a lot more than the percentage of millionaires in network marketing.


I wanted him to get started with a company, but I was afraid that with the attitude, “it’s going to be easy” that he’d find out exactly how easy network marketing is and that he’d decide to quit. I’d like him to be successful!


His response was, “Why are you poo pooing my ideas?”


I told him that I wasn’t poo pooing anything. I just wanted him to be aware of how difficult network marketing can be. Now, it may be that he is a natural at this business and he could do very well. Believe me, there’s nothing that I’d rather have happen than to have him show me how wrong I am.


Apparently, there is a very fine line between creating realistic expectations and poo pooing a prospects dreams.


the moral of the story


Is there a moral to this story?


I’m sure that there is. I just haven’t figured out what it is yet.


I have to ask myself, what’s wrong with being confident? There must be some happy medium to be reached between building reasonable expectations and dream stealing. Maybe I should’ve been there after the fact instead of intervening before this guy even got started? I’m gong to forward this article to them so they can at least see things from my perspective. Yes, I’m trying to mitigate any damage that has been done.

Goal setting – control what you can and live with the rest of it


Goal setting 101


goal setting


It’s nice to do goal setting. It gives you a target to aim at, but it’s not the end of the story. Everyone who joins a network marketing company has a goal in mind, when they first start out. Maybe their goal is to make $100,000.00 per year. Maybe it’s to make an extra $500.00 per month to help pay the bills.


I can remember cutting out pictures from magazines and taping them to my bathroom mirror. How many of you have done that? While keeping your goals, dreams and desires in the forefront of your mind is a really good idea, having a plan of action is more important. This is because goal setting is just that, goal setting. What we need to do is to be able to achieve those goals.


Control what you can


There aren’t too many things in life that we can control. Yet, every day we wake up and live our lives. Why would we do that when there are so many things that are out of our control? I think that most of us have the illusion of being in control.


Unfortunately, we’re only in control of what we do, what we say and how we react to things. After that, we just have to live with whatever happens. Since we can’t control the outcome of any situation, doesn’t it stand to reason that we should let whatever is going to happen, happen? Should we tie our emotions to the outcome of any situation? We can control what we say, what we do and how we react to a situation, but after that we just have to live with it.


Take action


goal setting then take action


After we have set our goals, the first thing that we need to do is take some sort of action. The best way to get to your goals is to break down your goals into small action steps. If you ultimate goal is to make $100,000.00 per year, then you need to do what company tells you that you need to do in order to reach that goal.


You’ll need to recruit a lot of people and have some of them recruit a lot of people. Along the way, you and your organization will need to sell some products. Once you do all of that, you’ll be making that $100,000.00.


All of this starts with recruiting a single person. You’ll need to figure out how to do that. You’ll have to show the business plan to a certain number of people and hopefully one of them will join. Once you have that number you will know how much work you will need to do. Statistically speaking.


Goal setting 201


Goal setting isn’t about getting the nice car or a new house. It’s about getting certain activities done each day. If it takes you showing the business plan 15 times to recruit 1 person then you should set your goals to give the business plan 15 times per week or what ever you decide to do.


goal setting taking actions lead to success


If you do enough of the right activities, you can hardly help being successful in this business.


Two last things. I would say don’t overwhelm yourself, in the beginning. If you need to show 15 plans to recruit someone, then allow yourself 2 weeks to show those 15 plans. As you get used to doing the work you’ll probably want to expand how much you do. The last is that every time you achieve your activities goal, reward yourself. Do something that you enjoy. You’re worth it!

Using a 3 step action feedback loop for fun and profit in network marketing


Take action


take action


There are certain things that you need to be doing, in network marketing, if you want to be a success. It really boils down to selling products and recruiting people into your opportunity. That’s about it. Sounds pretty easy, doesn’t it? Well, it’s simple, but it’s not really that easy.


What you have to do is fairly simple to spell out. The exact methods that you use may not be so clear. You may have to use trial and error to determine the method or methods that you will end up using. That is where the 3 step action feedback loop comes into play.


What is a feedback loop, anyway?


The Free Dictionary defines a feedback loop as:


The section of a control system that allows for feedback and self-correction and that adjusts its operation according to differences between the actual and the desired or optimal output.”


That’s nearly a perfect definition.


Network marketing, at its core, is an action based business. If you aren’t taking action then you probably are about to go broke and quit. The action feedback loop is designed to help you to become successful after you start to take action. The best part is that your actions don’t have to work or even be good actions. You just have to start to move forward!


The 3 steps of the action feedback loop are:


1. Take action toward some goal

2. See what kind of results you get

3. Learn from the results from step 2 and adjust for your next action


Then the loop keeps running until you achieve your desired goals. It sounds kind of simple, doesn’t it?


Let’s say that your goal is to generate customers for your company’s products. You decide to try your luck on Facebook. The first action that you take it to post pictures of yourself with your products and put a link to your company’s replicated site. You repeat this action day after day. For some reason, no one is buying your products.


get customers by taking action


Step 1 for you was to put links, on Facebook, to your replicate site. The results were that you didn’t sell any products. What should you learn from this action? You should learn that placing, what amounts to, spammy ads on your Facebook page isn’t going to sell your products. Step 3 is to adjust your actions and repeat from Step 1. Your second attempt might be to write an ebook about the benefits of using your company’s products and setting up a landing page to give that ebook away in exchange for your prospect’s email address.


You put an announcement on your Facebook page that you are giving away the ebook and you provide a link to that page. This gives the results that you were looking for. You are generating leads who can be converted into paying customers. Then, you can move onto the next goal.


The process was shortened and simplified for the sake of brevity. You may have to try and try again to get something that will allow you to attain your goal. The process remains the same no matter what your goal happens to be or how many adjustments and tweaks you have to make. Eventually, you should be able to reach all of your goals this way.


This is all contingent on you taking some action toward a specific goal.
