Personal Branding and Network Marketing: Do These Go Together?

  • IMG_2779The answer to the question is Yes!! They absolutely go together.Here are a couple of my thoughts on this subject.

If I am in network marketing, why should I worry about personal branding? I can just plug people into my company’s system. I can utilize the brand of my company and the tools they have created for me to use.

Yes this is absolutely true and these are valuable things to do while you build your business.In my opinion, if you are in this profession long term then branding yourself is of extreme value. When you go through all your hot and warm markets you will be left with cold market prospects and if you have developed a personal brand then instead of cold calling and cold prospecting being your only way to build your business, because you branded yourself, you will have people reaching out to you to find out what it is that you are doing.

Another reason to brand yourself is if you would like to have multiple streams of income. What if something changes in your company or they shut down. We all believe in our companies but companies shut down all the time and you don’t know for sure what will happen. If you have branded yourself as a professional and have some other avenues of income then you are protecting yourself and your family in case something does happen with the company you are currently in.

Personal Branding Tips

I was listening to a powerful interview today with Peter Montoya and he shared a couple of powerful branding tips I would like to share with you here.

1.You have to be willing to do what the average are not
2.To build a good powerful potent brand you need to specialize the brand
3.Until you have the confidence to be choosy about your target market you will have a desperate market
4.Be selective of who you target and find a product or service for a target market
5.Create valuable and educational content specifically to help your target market

Here is a great article I found on personal branding that I believe will help you.

MLM tips: How To Be Successful In Your Business

image
Are you struggling with being consistent in your business or feeling like you do not have enough people to talk to?

Are you not reaching enough people and is your business just not growing?

If you are looking for success in your business? If you’re wanting your network marketing business to grow and you are not constantly putting it in front of new people,it will not grow.

Let me explain why.

When you show your network marketing company to a new prospect, most of the time they are not going to join up right away even if you are the best closer. Most people that are really interested will get started in your business after their first exposure in two weeks, maybe three weeks or four weeks. It might be six months. If you’re looking for that immediate sign up every time you show the presentation you will be disappointed and you might even stop showing people. That is the big problem.
See, if you show approximately three people a day for five days a week that’s 15 people in the week that you’re showing your presentation. After doing that consistently for a couple weeks you will begin to have those people that you first showed join your business. If you stop showing because no one is signing up, after those first people get signed up, you will have no one else joining because you quit showing people because of false expectation and lack of consistency.

If you consistently are showing someone every day you will fill your funnel and once the sign-ups start coming in they will consistently come in on a regular basis because you are consistently showing your business to new people.

Remember, you are your business

You are your storefront

Imagine your self being like a retail store that’s in a shopping center. You have a grand opening.

All these people come in and they buy from you. They see your stuff. It’s a lot of fun and then the next day you put a black curtain over your store so that no one knows you’re there. They’re still out shopping. They’re still out looking and they are going to other stores but they can’t see yours because you put a curtain over the front door. Your business doesn’t grow. People don’t know you’re there. No one sees your product or your opportunity. I hope you catch this visual and it makes sense to you. It doesn’t matter if your building off-line or online you have to constantly make sure that people are seeing your company and your business.

If you want to have consistent growth and live the lifestyle of your dreams and get the time freedom that you have signed up for you must remember to constantly get eyes on your presentation. Remember to walk with vision.
Keep showing people.
Keep running.
Don’t give up.

4 simple steps to help you grow your business

image

Do you struggle with how to grow your business?

What about why your team members are not reaching their goals?

In my blog post today, I will share with you a simple four step process that I believe will help you grow your business.I am reading through Stephen Covey’s book “The Seven Habits Of Highly Effective Network Marketing Professionals” and I found this one part extremely powerful and I wanted to share these four tips with you to help you “grow your business organically”.

1. The first thing you want to do with your new team member, or if you have been in network marketing for a while then reach out to your up line or sponsor and see if they will help you. You will want to set a time to get together and talk about what your goals are and what it is you want to achieve. In this first meeting talk about short-term goals.

“30 day-90 days-6 months”

2. After you have established your short-term goals now define together what it will take for you to reach that end result.

What mechanisms and strategies and activities need to be put into place in your life to achieve your goals?

In the second phase of this process you will want to create daily activities and a daily strategy to crush your goal!!!!

3. You will want to develop an accountability strategy together. You want to be held accountable to perform the actions you need to perform to reach the goals you want to reach. Whether this is a daily phone call, weekly phone call or a daily email. Develop some type of accountability strategy with one another so that you can help each other reach your goals.

4. Talk about the win-win for both of you once you reach your goal and you accomplish your end result. What are the good things that will come out of you reaching your goals? Also, talk about the consequences of not reaching your goals and what it means if you don’t do what it takes to reach your goal. This is the four step process that if you’re not doing this with your team members then you’re slowing down the growth of your business tremendously. If you’re not doing this four step process with someone then your business is not going to be where it should be or need to be.

What Does Building Your Network Marketing Business And Riding A Bike Have In Common?

image

You’re probably thinking what an interesting title for this blog post.

What does network marketing and riding a bike have in common?”

As you read through this, I hope that you will see the comparison and it will help you through some of the struggles that you will face in building your network marketing business.

I wish when I was starting out that I would have had this information!!!!

I’m not sure if you remember learning to ride a bike or if you’ve had children that you’ve watched learn to ride a bike.

When you first get started you have no skills. You fall down. You bang your knees, scratch your elbows. You get bruised and bloody, but you DON’T GIVE UP. You want to ride that bike so bad that after trying and failing over and over again, you keep trying.

You might ride 5 feet without falling and then you fall. You get so excited that you made it that little bit that you get up and you try again. This time you go 10 feet and then 15 feet and then 20 feet. Before you know it you are riding freely and you are so excited and having so much fun. Something that was so frustrating and discouraging has turned into such joy!!!

YOU ARE FREE!!!

It’s the same when you’re building your network marketing business. Many people come in and they think they’re going to make money really quick. This is not always the case. You do not realize that you have to develop skill. You have to learn how to invite. You have to learn how to listen to people. You have to learn how to communicate with people, show people and close people and as you develop the skills your business will begin to grow. At first it might be hard. You will be uncomfortable. You might get hurt and bloodied a little bit. Yet the excitement of growing your business keeps you going and before you know it you recruit two or three people in your team. You recruit five or six people and its just like getting on that bike. You start riding and getting excited and instead of it being hard to talk to people, you enjoy talking to people. You enjoy listening to people.

If you’re battling discouragement and frustration

Hang in there and develop the skills that you need to develop. You will grow your business!!

So never ever quit!!

I hope this lesson about learning to ride a bike and building your network marketing business helps you catch a vision and it helps you stay in the game long enough to change your life and change the lives of others around you.
