Developing mastery in Network Marketing takes discipline and a lot of hard work. There are 5 categories in network marketing that you will need to develop mastery in to be successful. They are Personal Growth, Customer Acquisition, Recruiting, Team Building, and Leadership.
The traditional training style of classroom learning, seminars, books and CD’s offered by the leadership of these companies provides good information, but does not equate to success for most people. The “how” is also very important, and interactivity in training helps you learn quicker and retain the information
It is tough to make an article interactive, however we will do our best here…
In this article we will focus on Leadership.
Since everything you do will duplicate, leading by example is a fundamental skill that is imperative to your success. Having a team in network marketing offers an unparalleled opportunity to practice, and duplicate what you learn with your team. Furthermore you will be given endless opportunities to challenge your downline to grow in a supportive and fun environment that is ideal for accelerated learning.
Here are some interactive questions we have created for you.
To keep a person inspired and moving forward what do you do?
A) call them everyday
B) attempt to motivate them
C) tell them to “think positive”
D) show them how to let go of their fears
If you like the question, share it with anyone you know in the mlm, network marketing or direct sales business. This question was created by Jim Britt, and placed inside the MLM training tool MLM The Game, think of the answer, re-read the question if you need to, and answer the question mentally.
The answer to the question is: D) show them how to let go of their fears
No one likes to be nagged, so just calling everyday or multiple times a day will not motivate them or inspire them to move forward quicker. Attempts to motivate them may come off as working, and temporarily they may get excited, but they will revert back to their normal state after you leave. Thinking positive is important, but not the entire answer. They must be able to let go of their fears, because it is our fears and past experiences that cause our challenges of today.
To be successful in MLM you need…
A) to be innovative
B) to be coachable
C) to keep it a secret
D) a degree in business
If you like the question, share it with anyone you know in the mlm, network marketing or direct sales business. This question was created taken from the MLM training tool MLM The Game, think of the answer, re-read the question if you need to, and answer the question mentally.
The answer to the question is: B) to be coachable
Being innovative is likely to help you in life in many ways, mlm is all about following a system, a system designed for you to have success. This is one of the best things about network marketing, you don’t have to create your marketing plans or your other business systems. Keeping it a secret is obviously wrong, and another great thing about mlm is that there is no degree needed. To follow the system, you need to be coachable; this is one of the most important factors to your future success. Follow the system, it is OK to follow it in your own style, but follow it, and you will have the greatest chance in achieving the same success that the others who are using that system are having.
We encourage you to use question and game based learning for everything you do. Question based learning will engage more senses, and increase your retention of the information.
Whenever you read a book, magazine, or article, get creative and create your own questions.
This is fun, and it will permanently transfer the information to your brain. This is also a fun way to engage your team. For extra fun, you can give away prizes for correct answers when you send out e-mail blasts with your questions, and continue to learn together!
