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!

Network marketing – story time

Ain’t network marketing great?


network marketing can suck


Gather ’round the camp fire and I will tell you a tale. The golden, red embers will warm you as the smoke fills the air. Sit back, relax and enjoy an unbelievable story of how upline can work against you.


When I’m done, you will shake your head in disbelief as surely no one would do something like this. Let me assure you that this is a very true story!


Many years ago, in a distant land, there lived a famous network marketer. He was making money with his network marketing business and many people came to learn his secrets. He turned them all away and told each that there are no secrets in this business. You must work diligently, for many years, before you will find success.


They were disappointed by his answers and left never to return.


Then one day, the famous network marketer recruited someone who had never been in network marketing. Ah, the dreaded newbie. The famous network marketer offered no training to the newbie.


“They must learn the business on their own.”


The newbie was disappointed by the news. How would they ever learn how to run a network marketing business?


For 18 long months the newbie did struggle. Then one day, as if a miracle had occurred, the newbie recruited someone of their own. This was cause for celebration, but it seemed no one cared. Again, the newbie was disappointed. The newbie was not going to be deterred. Try, try, try again, they did. Soon they had recruited someone else.
I say it was a miracle, because this new recruit was the famed and fabled home run hitter that all in the kingdom sought. This newbie, the home run hitter, rank advanced twice in their first 30 days. All in the kingdom were amazed by this feat. Still the famous network marketer was silent. Surely, they must be impressed.

The home run hitter had brought new excitement to the group and all marveled at the accomplishments. The first newbie wanted to accomplish the sames feats as the home run hitter. She had been silent for many months. She was just too shy to ask anyone to come visit the group and see what they were doing.


The home run hitter had decided to let anyone in the kingdom come and gaze upon a true home run hitter. Bring guests too, as surely they will want to be part of this group once they have basked in the glory of the home run hitter.


The shy newbie decided that she too could rank advance, if she could just open her mouth and invite someone to see the home hitter. She mustered every ounce of courage that she could find and not only did she invite one guest, she invite two guests!


The day before the home hitter was to go on display, the famous network marketer decided that the newbies guests were not worthy of gazing upon the home hitter and she was told not to bring them.


The shy newbie thought, “What’s wrong with my guests? They too could be the next home run hitters. Who is to know? Please let me bring them!”




The famous network marketer was unimpressed by the pleas of the shy newbie.


On the appointed day, the shy newbie showed up to gaze upon the home run hitter. She was bitterly disappointed by the fact that her guests were deemed unworthy of being there. How would she ever rank advance if she was not given the chance?


No one had time for the shy newbie, the home run hitter was given all of the attention. The shy newbie slowly faded away and was never heard from again.




My story is true. I did “jazz it up” a bit to see if anyone would read the whole thing.


All of this actually happened to a friend of mine. Her recruit was asked not to bring 2 guests to a group, recruiting function. I couldn’t even repeat what I said, but it was something like, “You gotta be kidding me!”


I hate to say, “beware of your upline,” but you might want to keep an eye on them. You never know what they might do.

Are you a network marketing control freak?


Are you in control of your network marketing business?


are you in control of your network marketing business


So many people live their lives and think that they are in complete control of everything. Those people may think that they are in control, but for the most part, they aren’t. There are very few things that we, as humans, are really in control of.


You may think that you are in control of your own life, but too many times we find out that it’s just an illusion. Someone else is in control. Let’s take a look at a few situations and see who is in control.


You say that you have a pretty good job. Are you in control of that? You applied for the position and you did the interview, but it was the person who hired you that was in control of that situation. I hope that you’d agree that there isn’t much job security anymore. You may think that you control your own destiny with your company, but you could be laid off, have your job outsourced or off shored. You could be replaced by a robot in the future. Who’s really in control of your job?


You may have children and you might think that you are in control of them. Any parent knows that’s not true! You may be able to manipulate them into doing what you want, but ultimately, the choice is theirs. Will they do what you want or will they decide to do something else? No, you’re not in control of your kids.


You say that you have a dog that your in control of. Do you really control that dog? Try leaving the house for an extend period of time and see if that dog doesn’t chew up your good shoes.


Now you want to tell me that you have your own network marketing business and you are in control of that. You’re getting closer. In some ways, you do have control over your business. In most ways, you don’t. You don’t control the products. The company manufactures them and you can sell them. You don’t control the compensation plan. You can progress through it, but the company sets the rules.


You may spend money on advertising and say that you are in control of that. You can decide where you want to spend your money, that’s for sure, but you can’t control who sees your ad. You can’t control how many people will respond to the ad or how many people will buy your products or sign up with you.


this is depressing


Wow, this is kind of getting depressing. We aren’t really in control of very many things. Certainly not as many as we thought we controlled.


What are we in control of?


Apparently, not much. We are or can be in control of 3 things. We can be in control of what we do, what we say and how we react to the outside world.


We can control what we say. We are in charge of what comes out of our mouths. We can nice things or mean things. We can say positive or negative things. The choice and decision is ours, alone.


We can control what we do. We can decide to go to work or stay home. We can chose to spend time with negative people or positive people. We can decide to do something or decide to do nothing.


We can also control how we react to the outside world. This could be the weather. If it’s cold and windy outside, we can decide to wear a heavy coat or not to wear a coat at all. It could be a negative person and you can’t control what that person says, but you can chose not to spend time with them.


What does this have to do with the network marketing business?


this does relate to network marketing


You’re looking for the tie in. Once you realize that you are not in control of much that happens in your life, you can begin to change you attitudes towards many things. In this example, you can change your attitudes about your network marketing business.


You can only control what you do, what you say and how you react, right?


In network marketing, you control how often you talk to people about your business. They may or may not be interested. That part is out of your control. If they are interested in hearing what you have to say, then you are in control of what you say. Now they may be interested in signing up with you or they might not be interested. You’re not in control of that part either.


Your prospect can control certain things too. They may have listened to your business presentation, but now they control that decision. Will they join or not? That’s completely up to them. You may be able to persuade them, but in the end, it will be up to them.


don't be married to the outcome


This is why you’ve heard people say that you shouldn’t be “married” to the outcome of any situation. They say this because you aren’t in control of it. This is a place for a major attitude change. You need to do your part and just wait and accept prospect’s decision.


How you react to their decision is also something that you can control. If you are “married” to the outcome of any situation then you may have a bad reaction to the out come of that situation. That means that if someone says “no” to joining your business, that you might quit the business.


You should focus on those things that you can control. You can control how often you talk to someone about your business. Get to work!


You control your activities not the outcomes of those activities.


If you can get 2 people out of every 10 people you talk to to listen to your business presentation, then focus on talking to 10 people. If, on average, you get those 2 people to look at the business plan, then don’t worry about the other 8 who say, “No.” That’s out of your control, anyway.


Keep track of your activities, the more you do the more you’ll profit.

You can practice running your network marketing business


You’ve probably heard the old saying, “practice makes perfect.” I’m not sure that you can ever be perfect at anything. Although, Nadia Comaneci might disagree with me. I believe that “practice makes improvements.”


Aren’t we all looking to improve how we conduct our businesses?


If you go along with the premise that it’s a good idea to practice your business activities, then we just need to find people to practice on. Who wouldn’t you mind not joining your business? Or who are the people who are the least likely to join your business?


they might join your network marketing business

The people who are least likely to join you are the people that most gurus want you to start with, your warm market. The gurus tell you to start with these people because new network marketers usually don’t have the money or don’t want to spend the money on advertising and marketing.


I understand the feeling. If you joined a network marketing company, you probably did so to make some extra money. If you joined to make some extra money, you probably don’t have a lot of extra money burning a hole in your pocket to spend on such trivial things as advertising.


There are four things that make your warm market seem like the best place to start.


They know you


They like you


They trust you


People are most likely to do business with someone that they know, like and trust. This group of people would seem to be the perfect group to start with, except for one thing. They know you. The thing that makes them the best prospects also makes them the worst prospects. Most people have never owned a business and they don’t know how different it is from being an employee. Your warm market would naturally think that you’ve never run a business so how well will you do running your first business?


Then on top of that, they’d wonder how you’d be able to teach them how to run their first business.


I said that there were 4 reasons that your warm market seems like the perfect place to start, right?


It’s free to talk to them!


who will teach them to do network marketing


Free is good, especially in the beginning. That’s all fine and dandy, but can your warm market serve our purposes? The answer is a resounding yes! They are the perfect group to practice on.


My suggestion comes from real life experience. I told a friend, who is a network marketer for another company, that she should practice her skills on her warm market and see what happened. She tried it and this is what happened.


She called a close friend and told her that she had just started her own business. She asked if her friend would be a test subject and watch a product demonstration. The distributor told her friend that she was going to be bringing her upline so she could observe and learn what to do. Her friend agreed and they set up a date to meet.


On the appointed day, the 3 of them got together. The distributor’s upline began the product demonstration and stopped many times to explain why she was telling the prospect about that particular benefit of the product. In the history of product demos this may have been the choppiest one ever! It was for training purposes.

At the end of the demonstration, the prospect bought the products!


Yes, it can be that easy.


Now, you may not always get the sales or the recruit, but the worst that can happen is that you get some experience dealing with prospects and you can learn how to do product demos and business presentations from your upline!


Who knows how many people from your warm market will sign up or buy your products? I want you to fill out your memory jogger and call your upline. Come up with a plan to go through your entire warm market this way. Always tell them that you are just there for practice. That will put them at ease!


Who could say no to that request?
