1. Very few fail at MLM. I’ve noticed that by far most people join to use a particular product or service at wholesale and “hope” they make a few dollars as a bonus of the deal. But to call these people a failure would be like calling someone who buys milk every week for their kids a “grocery failure” because Safeway didn’t send them a word of mouth bonus at the end of the month.
2. All pay plans are pretty much the same. If you work you’ll get paid, if you don’t you won’t.
3. Large dollars come with building large organizations. It’s good to have an effective tool and lots of ways for people to distribute it. Some like to have home demonstrations, some like to work over the phone, some the internet, some by direct mail. Point is, there are lots of ways to build businesses. You don’t have to do them all but you should have a plan that includes them so you can be more attractive to a broader range of people.
4. Be accountable. If you aren’t getting what you want out of the deal, it’s probably your fault. If you tend to blame your upline, your company, the products, the payplan…those things will all suck when you move on to the next deal also. You’ll find a home when you find yourself.
Bonus. You don’t have to sell everyone or sponsor everyone. There are those that want to use your products and join your opportunity and those that don’t. Your life will be so much more productive when you just say “ok, great” and move on from those that don’t want to buy from you and go find those that do.
That’s one of the reasons I like tools. Tools don’t get their feelings hurt when they get put on the shelf. Hand out a tool and follow up with what I call the super close…What do you think? If they liked it, they’ll tell you, if not, they’ll tell you. Either way the tool is 100% duplicatable and never feels bad when it gets rejected.
Best of success to you,
