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 can’t sell anything


Can you sell your network marketing company’s products?


selling network marketing products


It seems that there aren’t very many people, in network marketing, who think that they can sell anything. Somehow, billions of dollars of network marketing products are sold every year. How is this possible? I see that there could be two possibilities. The first is that the distributors are buying billions of dollars of products themselves or there are people in network marketing who really can sell their products.


The funniest thing happens when a new distributor goes out to tell people about their products. Most new distributors will tell you, up front, that they can’t sell anything, but as soon as they get in front of someone what do they do? They immediately try to sell the products. Thus, they show everyone that they were right and they really can’t sell anything.


Most network marketers aren’t salespeople. What are we supposed to do?


There may be more ways to sell your products than the two that I’d like to talk about today. If you have a favorite way to sell your products, feel free to share in the comment section, below!


Direct selling


In this case, direct selling means selling the products to the person that you are talking to. My favorite way to do this is by sharing my own personal product story. Your target market, in this case, is someone who has the same kind of problems that you have. In my opinion, I’m not selling the products to the prospect. I’m telling them the story of the benefits that I got from the products. If I was trying to sell weight loss products, I’d strike up a conversation with a prospect and steer the conversation until I got to tell them that I lost 15 pounds in less than 6 weeks. I don’t offer to sell it to them. I just wait and see if they ask me how I did it. If they ask me, I tell them that I used what ever the name of the products are and then I offer them a sample. I ask them, “Would you like to try it?” If they try it and have a positive experience, I let them know that I liked the products so much that I started selling them. Then I can see if they’d like to purchase them, from me.

Indirect selling


This is when you look for a referral from your prospect. With this method, you steer the conversation toward whatever kind of benefits you get from your products. You do the same thing as you would do in direct selling except when you get to the end, you ask your prospect if they happen to know anyone who would like to get those same benefit. If you are selling weight loss products, you tell them that you lost 15 pounds in less than 6 week. Then you would ask, “I was wondering if you could do me a favor? Do you happen to know anyone who would be interested in losing 15 pounds in less than 6 weeks?” Then wait to see if they know anyone. The person that they might refer to you could be themselves. Of course, they may not be interested in the products, but they could give you a lead for someone who might be.


It can be very difficult for people who don’t know how to sell or who don’t like to sell to actually sell their company’s products. These two types of sales strategies might be of help for those of us who are not trained salespeople.


Selling things to friends and family is no easy task. Why not take an indirect approach to make it a little easier?

Are you doing video marketing yet?


Video marketing


video marketing


You can look around my blog and see that I haven’t been doing video marketing. At least not yet. It’s something that I know I need to do, but as of yet, I haven’t. Am I afraid of being on camera? Yes, that’s probably part of the hesitation. I’ve never, knowingly, been on camera before. I think I could do it and maybe I could even get used to doing it.


I started blogging about 6 years ago. I choose blogging because it was low cost and gave me access to the entire world or so I thought. I also thought that it would be something that could be duplicated. I think I was wrong on both accounts. Now I believe that I made a mistake. I don’t think that very people can do blogging, successfully. It’s very time consuming and there aren’t very many people who can write good and engaging content.


I keep writing because I think that there are still people out there who would prefer to read.


I know that there is a very large segment of the population who would rather watch a video. I’m not serving those people with a blog that is completely written. I’d like to add video to my blog this year. That’s kind of vague and noncommittal, don’t you think. Well, it’s the best I can do.


Looking back on it, I think it was a mistake to not do a Vlog. Or at least having a video with every post on my current blog. There’s a reason why Youtube is the second most visited site on the internet. People like to watch videos. I should’ve done this years ago!


I’ve done some research in preparation of doing videos. This is what I’ve learned. Feel free to add in anything else that you think might be useful information, in the comment section below!


4 things your video marketing should include


are you ready to do video marketing


Having a fun, educational and informative video is great, but the purpose of your video should be to get the viewer to take some sort of action, at the end. For the most part, that action should be to get them to sign up on your email list.


The first thing that you should do is to do an introduction. You, basically, tell the viewer who you are and any other important information that you think might help you to keep someone’s interest. You can let your audience know that you’ve been in been business for however long you’ve been in business. If you are a top earner or a high rank distributor, you can add that in, too. You’re giving them a reason to listen to you!


Next, move into the subject of the video. This is going to be like a title and not your main content. This is what you’ll use to reel them in to watch the video. If you’re trying to promote your product, you can tell about the benefits that they can get from them. As an example, if you have an anti-wrinkle cream, you could say, “Today, I’ll be telling you about the 3 foods that you should be eating if you want to get rid of wrinkles while you sleep!” Grab their attention!


The next section will be your content. You’ll go through those 3 foods that they should be eating. You’ll go into as much detail as you can about each of the 3 foods that they should be eating and what those foods will do to eliminate their wrinkles.


The last thing that you’ll want to include in your video is your call to action. Again, for the most part, it will be to get the to sign up on your email list. You can say, “If you’d like to get the complete list of 10 foods that you should be eating in order to eliminate wrinkles while you sleep, head over to my site and I’ll get that out to you, right away. Just click the link in the description!”


That’s a simple outline, that you can use, to get you started making videos. I’d suggest keeping your videos fairly short and simple. Your call to action should be to do one thing and one thing only! Best of luck.

Is it an existential threat?



Will it really kill you?


network marketing can cause a lot of fear


What are you afraid of? Most people would say, “Nothing.” Well, most men anyway. If you put a big, strong man in front of an audience, we’ll see if their knees are knocking or not. I would guess that public speaking is near the top of most people’s biggest fears list. It would be right up there with dying.


As network marketers, we aren’t immune to these fears. We face fears like the fear of failure, fear of success and probably to worst thing we face is fear of ridicule. I like to call the fear of ridicule the fear of standing out from the crowd.


I believe that it is an instinct to feel like there is safety in numbers. Humans are safer when they are in a group of other humans! The more people that are around us the safer we are. If we are walking in the woods and a bear sees that there are only 1 or 2 people there, they are likely to check you out. However, if you are in a group of 20 people, the bear is probably going to hide from the group.


I believe that conformity is a survival mechanism.


Have you ever heard someone say, “I thought I was going to die,” when they stood out from the crowd or were ridiculed? Not only have I heard that, I’ve said it too!


I think that deep down inside most people the feeling that standing out from the crowd, in any way, is a threat to their very survival. Now you know why most people don’t want to start a business of their own.


How come some people can be nonconformists? How do they overcome their fear of standing out from the crowd?


There are those people who actually like standing out from the crowd. They have a need to be noticed. That’s why we have platforms like Youtube. If you want to be noticed, you can put a video of yourself on Youtube. It allows you to stand out from the crowd, in relative safety. I kind of doubt that anyone will track you down and beat you up on account of a Youtube video.


slay the dragon of fear


Then there are those people who set out to “change the world.” It’s usually a requirement to stand out from the crowd when your goal is to make the world a different or better place. You’ll find politicians, poets and warriors in this group.


Then there are the rest of us. We think that we can make our own slice of the world a better place for ourselves and our families, but when it comes time to put up or shut up, we tuck tail and run away. The fear of being ridiculed sets in and that’s the end of the dream.


I wish I had some great piece of advice to overcome the fear of standing out form the crowd, but I don’t. I can tell you this, with almost certainty, no matter how badly you are ridiculed, no matter how much they laugh at you and no matter how badly you fail, you’re not really going to die. It might feel like it and at some level you might actually think that you would die, but I’d say that actual death probably won’t happen.


Actually, I do have a piece of advice.


I’m sitting here thinking about how profound it is to realize that being ridiculed can be and is perceived as a threat to ones existence. I didn’t even realize that I had put the answer to the problem in the beginning of the article.


What makes us feel safe?


There is safety in numbers! Why not work, side by side, with someone else? Or maybe you need to have a couple of people with you in order to feel safe. Who knows, but why go out there alone and face the ridicule by yourself?


There’s no rule, in network marketing, that says that you have to work the business by yourself! Why not take advantage of the fact that you’ll probably feel much more confident and secure knowing that you have someone there who will support you and be on your side and by your side.


This could be a game changer for a lot of network marketers!
