Network Marketing Leads: How Do They Work And How To Make Them Work

Network Marketing Leads, I have been in this industry for almost two decades and this question is still being asked:

Do Network Marketing Leads Work?

Great question, and the short answer is yes, because if they don’t there won’t be any leads generations companies.

But rather as question, this is more of a plea for help from an individual who is struggling to get, call, and manage their leads for the betterment of their business.

Okay, so now you know that they work, let’s list down how it works.

First and foremost, let’s both agree that Network Marketing leads does work (in which they really do).

A lot of people are looking for ways to earn money online, so they will fill up a form or a subscription to learn how to achieve their goals.

These in-turn becomes Network Marketing leads, and in turn they get updates, news, promos, and other stuff that could help them with their business.

But if you have doubts right now, get rid of them. They won’t help you in any way at all.

Ring Ring – Does your script work?

Ah, having a conversation with a prospect is the most crucial in landing those deals. This is also one of the major problem of networkers. Although your prospects are interested in making money.

But getting them to agree with you is a whole new different issue.

Let’s get serious, a lot of people are arrogant enough to tell themselves that they know what they are doing. But most of the time, believe me, they don’t.

Furthermore, it becomes far worse when they are unteachable. Entering a world that you have no experience with and acting like a know-it-all would make the world crumble down on you.

Okay, so how do you this?

You need to learn how to give out calls. Write down your script and take notes on where you got it wrong. Read articles and books on how to enhance your script.

Take note of what happens every time you make a call. By the time you get to your 100th call you’ll realize the improvement to your script.

Check this post to learn how to enhance your conversational skills!

Leads don’t magically call themselves

Get yourself off of your comfort zone and start working those leads!

Just because you can do things at home doesn’t mean you need to be lax about it. What’s the point of hundreds or thousands of leads if you don’t work them of everyday?

But it all boils down to how good your leads are.

Buy them young and fresh, make sure that they are real and that they produce results!

Freedom: When Will it Come?

Freedom, this is something that all of us wants. In my business I have the freedom to anything I want and this is not because I have free time. Every time is my free time.

But we both know that being free doesn’t come cheap and that there is always a price for everything.

So If you ask me the price of being free, well, it’s about getting work done, making sure that tomorrow you don’t have anything to do anymore.

Dealing with it before it even starts.

This is the only way to achieve being free, financially and with your time.

So what do you say? I’ve been around and the hotel rooms are quite empty, the business class seats area are almost empty. It’s kind of lonely doing this all alone, so I’m sharing you this by helping you achieve your goals!

Decide now and and achieve true freedom!

The price of freedom

 

Time is our only obstacle here guys, so start getting results and jump-start your road to freedom.

Conversations: A Guide to Being Articulate

Have you ever been in a situation where you can’t have a steady conversations? How about, talking to complete strangers in a party? Or just in a conference? You just then stopped talking and unable to reply and start a new topic to converse with?

Awkwaaaard…

This has happened in my life and it’s bad. So bad, that I need to have a few bottles in first before I could start a healthy conversation.

Like having to converse with people with a straight and steady topic is almost magical not only to me, but also for other people.

the art of being articulate - Conversations: A Guide to Being Articulate

Keeping a steady and continuous topic is the idea

Most of use are usually shy and aloof. Afraid of rejections, misunderstanding, and being labeled as trying hard.

But  we are just unaware of how to reply or compliment people with their ideas.

And most of all, we just don’t listen very well.

The great gift of conversation lies less in displaying it ourselves than in drawing it out of others. He who leaves your company pleased with himself and his own cleverness is perfectly well pleased with you.

Jean de La Bruyère

But our luck has arrived!

I found this video in Youtube which is an excellent guide on how to maintain a good and steady conversation with total strangers and your peers.

The video talks about the FORD method, it’s basically a guide on how to approach and deal with conversations that would turn bad in blink of an eye.

Enjoy your new found technique to having a conversation! Also feel free to share the post and share it among your friends and family!

Reading, The Path To Becoming a Great Leader

Reading is one of the best ways to learn new things, and MLM isn’t any different. But most people will just consider reading books, instead of actually doing it.

It takes dedication and a lot of reading

I wasn’t really that of an avid reader until I received an unlikely email from a guy I follow, Andre Chaperon, a professional copywriter, famed in Internet Marketing circles. The email was about a blog post made by Ryan Holiday, a very famous American author.

Andre and Ryan were both having a discussion about the importance and value of buying book, also to not just read them but also study them. We are constantly being fed information and this is a bad thing when you want to achieve a goal, hence, by studying and writing down details you know is important would help you retain the knowledge.

And the thing is these guys, take down notes. Ryan has this system of index cards and colored tabs to keep them organized while Andre uses an app called Ginko.

Andre had purchased books throughout last year, while Ryan bought books for tax deduction. Nonetheless, they bought books instead of borrowing or renting from the library or bookstore. The idea is to build your own library and be able to go back and restudy the stuff you deemed important.

And it also looks cool to have your own library at home.

Leaders ARE Readers.

This isn’t a ploy to make you read, this is as real as it can get. Also, any good leader is an avid reader, the guys on top read almost daily just to keep the knowledge intact. So if you’re not reading or hasn’t started yet, then you are dooming yourself. I’m not being rude or anything, it’s just the truth.

Here’s the link to the Ryan Holiday post.

I then wondered how many books have I bought after reading Ryan’s post. I then went to my Amazon account and copied all of the books I bought. Never bothered checking out the ebooks and audiobooks I purchased.

I have already read and bought these books, however, I bought them again since I wasn’t able to bring them here in Cambodia. Furthermore,  it was quite expensive since I have to send it to a forwarding company in Florida, which they in turn send it to me here in Phnom Penh. Because this way will be able to get the stuff I want from Amazon.
