Do I have to go to the weekly network marketing meeting?



4 keys to your network marketing success!


keys to your network marketing success


Meetings … ugh … there are always meeting to go to in network marketing. Who likes to go to meetings? Not me! Meetings are long and boring. To get trapped at a meeting is a fate worse than death. Am I the only one who feels this way? I don’t think so.


Most network marketing companies have a weekly business plan meeting that their distributors can go to and invite guests. They are usually held in a hotel, hence the term “hotel meeting.”


Have you ever invite someone to go to a hotel meeting and they didn’t show up or had a “last minute emergency” and couldn’t go? If you invited them to a “meeting” or a “hotel meeting,” then you should know why they didn’t go. It was a meeting and no one likes to go to meetings!


First key


The first piece of advice is to stop calling it a meeting. You can call it a “business overview” or a “business strategy session.” These types of terms are less threatening and sound more interesting than a “meeting.”


Second key


The second piece of advice is don’t use these meetings as the first business exposure for your prospects. Make sure that your prospects have watched a DVD presentation or something comparable. You should be using these meetings as a way to follow up with them. The meeting should be a place for you to “close them.” There’s a lot of excitement in a room full of people! That excitement is contagious and you should be able to recruit someone there a little more easily.


At these meetings, you should always be taking notes. It doesn’t matter if this is your first time at the meeting or you’ve been to the last 50 events. You should be studying how the presenter looks, how they dress and what they say. Your notes should include everything that they say. You want to listen for the dramatic pauses and the one line jokes. The people in front of the room are the people who are trusted to “sell the opportunity” to all of the guests. You should try to pattern yourself after these people. You don’t have to memorize their presentation, but you should be able to the presentation nearly as well as they do!


Your guests will be more likely to pay attention to what is being said if you’re taking notes. It will seem like very important information. It’s so important, you’re taking notes!

Third key


The third piece of advice is that you can increase the attendance of your prospects by letting them know that there might not be room for them at the strategy session. You should make a 3 way call to your upline, who knows you might call to “get a prospect registered” for the strategy session. Your upline should get their name, address, and phone number. They should say something like, “If I can get you a seat, you’ll be able to show up, right?” Get the confirmation! Then they should say, “I can get you and a guest in for (whenever and where ever the meeting is held) and get a second confirmation.


More than likely, your prospect will say to you, “Guest?”


This is where you say, “Yes, this can be a money making opportunity for you. If you invite someone to the meeting and they sign up, you can make X number of dollars there. That would be cool, wouldn’t it?” Who’s going to say no to that?


This will be your first chance to train them. You’ll want to give them the words to say to a friend who they will be inviting to the strategy session. They should say something like, “I was just invited to a business strategy session with my friend Bob. I know it’s last minute, but I might be able to get you in. Would you be able to go? It’s tomorrow night at 7:00 pm.” Then have them call you to see if there is enough room for their guest. Again, get their contact information. If they bring their guest, all the better. You never know, you might just sign up two people that night. At the end of the meeting, your prospect could say, “I’m going to do this, how about you?”



Fourth key


The fourth piece of advice is to never let them know that there is a meeting every week. As far as they know, this is the only time that they get to see this information. If they know that there is a weekly meeting, they won’t see the value in it and they’ll tell you that they’ll “make it to the next meeting.” We all know how that works out!


You should be going to every one of the meetings that your company has. Even if you don’t have guests there, you should go. Your team will be watching you and if you don’t go, they’ll believe that it is all right not to go. Filling up that room is very important. A full room gives your prospects the idea that your opportunity is very popular. It will give them the social proof that they need to sign up. They don’t want to think that they are the only one who is interested in the business.

Network marketing and learning to play the piano


Learn how to run a network marketing business!


learn to do network marketing


Network marketing, at its core, is a skills-based business. If you have these skills or can learn these skills, you can do very well in the business. If you don’t have the skills, it will be a tough business to build. If you don’t have the skills, how can you learn them and what is the best way to learn them?


I compare learning the skills that you’ll need in network marketing, to learning how to play the piano. You can show up at the keyboard and not have any idea of what to do. You look at it and there are 88 keys. Some of them are black and most of them are white. You see the three foot pedals at the bottom of the piano and wonder why you have to play with your feet.


You scratch your head and sit down on the bench. You hit the keys with your finger and it makes a terrible sound. You keep banging and banging, but all that comes out is a mess of sound. You grow tired of that and you figure out that you don’t have the required skills to be able to play the piano.


You’re not to be deterred.


You go to the local music store and buy a book on how to play the piano. The first thing you notice is that each key represents a note so you tape the letters of the notes onto the keys. You read a little more and you start to understand how the piano is supposed to be played. After a few days, you’re able to play Mary had a Little Lamb. After a few months of reading and practicing, you go back to the music store and get a more advanced book.


You’re able to play some of the easier songs, but for the most part, this new book is too hard for you to learn. The harder songs take months and months of trial and error until you figure out how to play them. This is tougher than you thought. You go on YouTube and watch a bunch of videos. This helps, but it still takes time to learn the songs.


Finally, you break down and sign up for piano lessons at the music shop. The piano teacher helps you and walks you through the learning process. What would’ve taken you years of frustration can be learned n a matter of weeks or months.


you need network marketing skills


Learning the skills of network marketing.


Learning to play the piano sounds a lot like how most network marketers learn how to operate their businesses. The network marketer will try to learn as much as they can for the least amount of money. They just paid $300 to join their company, the last thing they need is another big expense. They read books, listen to CDs and go on YouTube to learn how to run a business. It’s slow going and can lead to a lot of frustration.


Sooner or later a frustrated network marketer will quit. If you have an eye on network marketing success, I’d suggest finding a teacher or coach who will greatly increase the speed at which you learn the skills of the network marketing business.


Yes, you can learn a lot from reading books, listening to CDs and taking courses, but if you want to accelerate your learning curve, you should think about hiring someone who has done what you want to do and let them teach you what they know.


It can get to be an expensive investment, but if you just reinvest your profits in your education I think that you’ll find that it is a wise decision to make!

Network marketing – There’s hope for you and me after all


The average Joe can be successful in network marketing!


you too can find success in network marketing


This is going to be a success story, once I get to it, so just hold on for a few minutes.


I’ve heard the gurus speak and top earners speak. It seems like they’ve lived very charmed lives. Were they just born under a lucky star? Are they naturals at business? I just want to know their secret to success!


I would say, for the most part, that almost all successful network marketer were once unsuccessful network marketers. I’ve heard the stories of the newbie striking it rich in 6 months. I’m sure those stories are true, but what are the odds that something like that happens to me or you?


The success story I bring to you, today, is one of those that happened very quickly. This couple started out, in their network marketing, and they knew next to nothing about running a business. They struggled for a year and then they decided to try social media and YouTube. They started out slowly. They were known to generate 1 to 2 leads per day per video on YouTube, in the beginning.


To me, that doesn’t sound too bad. Their strategy was to record enough YouTube videos in order to generate 50 leads per day. They figured that they need to do 30 videos to accomplish this. They followed through with their plan and it worked. They ended up generating more than 50 leads per day. In less than a year, they had generated over 32,000 leads and had recruited 970 people into their network marketing business.


Needless to say, two years later they are making well into 7 figures per year.


Yippee-Ky-Yay, right? Congratulations to them! But …


What does that have to do with you and me?


Let’s dive into their numbers a bit and see what they tell us.


In less than a year, they had 32,000 leads. This means that they were generating about 100 leads per day. Out of their 32,000 leads, they were able to recruit 970 people. That’s recruiting at a 3% rate. Do you know what the industry average is? It’s around 3%.


If they were introduced to you with all of their numbers, you’d have to think that they were some sort of recruiting geniuses. As it turns out, they are rather average. Let me say that this way. Here are 7 figure earners who are, at best, average recruiters.



I hope that their success story gives you hope. You don’t have to be some sort of recruiting savant. You just need to figure out a way to generate a bunch of leads and be an average recruiter.


It seems to me that they made around 30 or so good videos that generated 3 leads per day per video. Generating 3 leads per day per video doesn’t seem like all that many, does it? Not to me anyway.


Do you think that you could make a good video that would generate 3 leads per day if you thought that you wind up where they are? If you believed that you’d have a similar success would you make 30 videos? Would you make 60 video? Or 100 videos?


I know that you’re thinking that there’s no way that you’re able to make a video. You wouldn’t want to be recorded.


Would you do it for a 7 figure income?


Could you be brave for 30 days and make 1 video per day?


A solution?


is this the solution to your network marketing problems


Being able to do videos is just a matter of getting used to it. No one thinks that they could get in front of a camera and talk for 5 to 10 minutes. You’d make mistakes, feel foolish, you would wonder how you looked and what you sounded like, at least in the beginning. You will get used to it and you would get better at talking to a camera.


What do you until you get better?


I’m a big believer in practice because practice makes improvements!


I would suggest that you get a video camera, some good lighting, a microphone and get started. Go ahead and make your first video and upload it to YouTube. You can make your channel a private one and no one will ever have to see your first few videos. It’s just practice and no one cares how well you do.


You’ll get a lot of valuable experience doing this and you will get used to it. You can view your videos on YouTube all by yourself and get an idea of how you look and sound. You can make changes as you go and you’ll see yourself improving. Once you feel confident, you can “go live.” You can make a new channel where you are going to put your videos that will be open to the public!

You see, there is hope for you and me after all!
