I Am Here To Help You Learn

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!

Junkies or Groupies?



MLM junkies riding the wave to success


I’ve seen the term MLM junkie bantered about, lately. How are they defining MLM junkie? It seems that an MLM junkie is a person who either jumps from company to company in hopes of finding success or someone who joins every company in pre-launch in order to “ride the wave to success.”


There are probably equal numbers of people who do both things.


Some people prefer to join an established MLM company and when they don’t find the success that they so desperately want, they move on and join another MLM company. These types of people walk away blaming the company or their upline for their lack of success. They feel that joining a different company is the answer. Their battle cry is, “Next!”


MLM Groupies


I consider those people, the ones that jump from company to company, to be Groupies. They may be looking to make money in the network marketing industry, but it may be less important to them than being around people who are successful. They tend to join a company that they’ll have access to successful people. That way they can bask in their reflective success.


What is reflective success?


Think of it like this, the successful person is standing in a spotlight and the MLM groupie is standing next to the successful person. The MLM Groupie has some of the light shining on them. It’s not meant for them, but they get to feel like it is. Unfortunately for the Groupie, that feeling wears off fairly quickly. Then they are off to the next company, looking for some other successful person to “share” the spotlight.


MLM Junkies


Some people like to join the “next big thing.” They line up to join the next brand new company. It doesn’t matter what the products or service is as long as it’s brand new. These people are looking for a ground floor opportunity. There can be a lot of upside in a brand new company. If they get in early, they’ll be at the top of the “pyramid.” They think that it’s those people who’ve joined early that make all the money. Little do they know that most network marketing companies fail in their first few years of business.


Whether you call them Junkies, Groupies or something else, they are the people who see that the grass is always green on the other side of the fence and they will act like grasshoppers and jump to the next company.


The only way to tell if you’re about to recruit one of these people is to find out how many companies they’ve joined and what was their experience in each. They might tell you that they just wanted to make some money or maybe they will tell you that they joined for the camaraderie. You may not be able to identify them, so recruit them anyway and see what happens.


Well, good luck with the Groupies and Junkies! You’ll probably see a lot of them during your career.

How to force your prospects to see your business presentation


is your network marketing prospect open minded




I want to discuss open mindedness and closed mindedness.


According to yourdictionary.com: The definition of open minded is a willingness to try new things or to hear and consider new ideas.

Conversely, dictionary.com defines closed minded like this: having a mind firmly unreceptive to new ideas or arguments.


As a network marketer, we are asked to eliminate people from being our prospects. One of the best ways to do this is to find out who has an open mind and who has a closed mind.


There are two types of people in this world. Those that are open minded and those that are closed minded. What type of person do you want to talk to about your business or your products? That answer should be pretty easy.


You will want to talk to the people with the open minds. They are open to new idea and new things. They are the people who are most likely to be interested in what you have to offer.


On the other hand, you have to people who are closed minded. They are either afraid of new things or they lack the confidence to use new ideas successfully. They are convinced that they are where they are supposed to be and they probably think that you should be right there next to them.


In network marketing, we are always looking for ways to “close the sale.” How do you close someone with a closed mind?


All I can tell you is that you can’t close something that’s already closed. If you have a prospect who is arguing with you about whether your business is something that they would be interested in you’ll be wasting your time trying to find a fancy way to close them.


With someone who has an open mind, you stand a chance of closing them.


How do you tell who has an open mind?


The only way to know if they have an open mind is to ask them. You can ask, “Are you open minded when it comes to making money?” Or you might ask, “Would you be open to a side project if it didn’t interfere with what you are doing now?”


The main word to focus on is “open.” When someone hears the word “open” or “open minded” in a question they have to think that if they aren’t “open” then they are closed or closed minded. There aren’t very many people who are willing to say that they are “closed minded.”


You can combine this with this question, “There are two types of people in this world, open minded people and closed minded people. Which are you?” Then ask them, “Would you be open to a side project if it didn’t interfere with what you are doing now?”


More than likely they have just told you that they are an open minded person. You’re just putting that to the test.


That choice of words almost forces your prospect to agree to see your business presentation or product demonstration!


After all, that is your goal in network marketing. If you can show enough business presentations, eventually you will reach your goals!


Even if you ask those questions of a closed minded person, they aren’t likely to tell you that they are closed minded. They’ll agree to see your business plan too.

Biting the hand that feeds you


I’m still a dog person!


Koda looks like this but with blue eyes


I’ve had to take the last couple of days off from blogging. Here’s why.


A little of the back story:


My son, just moved back into our home and brought with him a 50-pound male Siberian husky, named Koda. He’s a beautiful dog. He has light blue eyes and quite a stare. The problem is that he is a 6-month-old puppy.


If you’ve ever had a puppy you should know all about teething. He chews just about anything that isn’t nailed down. That’s not to say that he wouldn’t chew something that was nailed down. It would just take a bit longer to totally destroy it.


The bad news is that we already had 2 dogs. We have a 17-pound Corgi, named Gracey, that acts more like a cat than a dog. She tends to hide under the furniture to hide from everyone and everything. The other dog is a 47-pound mutt, named Roxy.


They don’t all get along. They tend to tolerate each other, at the moment. The puppy wants to play and the other dogs are older and they play when they want to and that’s not very often. The 47-pound mutt is the Alpha and she rules the roost. The husky has his eye on the throne, though. That’s another story.


I had this great idea a couple of weeks ago. Why not get a bag of raw hides and let them all chew to their hearts’ desire. I did just that. I bought a bag of the raw hides that are rolled up into sticks. That worked and kept them busy for about 15 minutes per raw hide. We went through several bags of those, but it wasn’t much bang for the buck. Next, I tried the raw hides that are shaped like bones. They were bigger and I thought that they would last a lot longer. They were fine with them, but I thought that they were too big as the dogs seemed to lose interest in them, quickly. They all got chewed and eaten, but it didn’t occupy them for a long enough period of time. They’d chew a bit and then leave and start to bother everyone again.


The next bag full was a smaller size of the ones shaped like bones. I figured that these would be “just right.” They were! I thought I was a genius. They would sit and chew those for an hour or longer.


We finally have some peace and quiet.


Gracey looks a little like this


It all seemed so nice, but that was the quiet before the storm. It was 2 days ago and there were a couple of half-chewed raw hides laying around. It was dark in the house and all of the dogs went for the same raw hide at the same time. The two older dogs got into a big fight over it while the husky watched.


They were barking and biting at each other. Gracey doesn’t seem to mind biting Roxy, but Roxy has always refrained from biting Gracey. By the time I got there to break up the fight, they had locked jaws. They had literally bitten each other in the mouth and their teeth were locked together. I picked up Roxy and tried to pull her away. That lifted Gracey up off of the ground. She dropped off and I tried to wrap my arm around Roxy to pick her up and move her out of there. I got my hand in front of Roxy and at that moment Gracey jumped up to bite Roxy again. She got my hand instead. I pushed Gracey out of the way and then Roxy got my other hand in her mouth and was gnawing on it.


I managed to get Roxy in her cage and my son got Gracie in hers.


I looked down and both of my hands were covered in blood. Talk about pain. I got to the kitchen sink and turn on the cold water. The cold water stopped the bleeding after 5 minutes or so.


I looked down and saw 2 puncture wound on my right hand and 2 deep cuts on my left hand.


My hands have been throbbing, in pain, for the past 2 days. It hurt to start the car with a key. That’s all thumb and my thumb is hurting bad!


They’ve finally calmed down enough to do some work.


Well, today has been a decent day. Not a lot of pain, but some. I certainly don’t want to bang my hands against a wall. Hopefully, I’ll be back to normal in the next few days and I can get back to normal.


It’s always something … right?
