Do business with people who do business with you in network marketing

Ooooops….. So believe me, when you do get yourself up to the top of your plan, and you write a book, it doesn’t make you immune to awkward long-term conversations with friends! Let me tell you about that slightly awkward moment when you go to meet an old friend…. He isn’t in your business nor is he a customer…. In fact, he was a ‘no’ who also ‘knew it all’ ...

Gardening is the same as network marketing!

Right that’s it. This doesn’t work. I planted 3 or 4 seeds in my garden yesterday and they haven’t grown yet. My neighbour has loads of lovely plants and flowers – he’s obviously lucky. Would you believe that some people apply the same principle to building their own business? Or….could it be my neighbour puts in lots of time, planting seeds, watering them, nourishing them, caring for them, and because ...

In 2034 how many lives will your network marketing business have changed?

The following post will make some people squirm a little… It’s the year 2034… Who would bet against this being the reality for most people? Soup and food kitchens, volunteer-run, in most villages and towns – providing the much-needed extras for working families that simply can’t afford three meals a day. Community centres, religious buildings and disused shops, offices and business premises, run by charities, that provide daytime seating, warmth ...

Building a real community in network marketing

“My team”, “my distributors”, “The Smith Team”, “my downline”, “my recruit”, “my agent” – this is language innocently used by many people on their leadership journey. At best, no harm is meant by it. However, I often have a quiet word with people and ask them to consider how it may actually sound to an entrepreneur who wants to break free of being employed and under someone elses’ charge. You’ll ...

How to spot a network marketing superstar!

If you’re active in your network marketing business and you are regularly speaking to people, you’ll recognise what I experienced recently. I did a follow-up call to someone who had watched the recruitment video. My jaw hit the ground and never regained its’ proper resting place with some of what he was saying: “I’m gonna have 500 to 1000 customers in 6 months…” “Ok. Which one? 500 or 1000?” I ...

Network marketing v franchising

I was chatting to a good friend of mine recently, who owns a few franchises, of one of the biggest name businesses out there. Interestingly, he also has a network marketing business. A few things struck me: *It costs him around £150,000 for each store he opens, in start-up costs. *Most people who could become a customer actually walk straight past his store, so in theory he gets lots of ...

The commitment that builds your network marketing business & financial freedom

The commitment that builds your network marketing business & financial freedom

So, last weekend, my company had a big event on. It was two days in two different locations. Both venues could hold 3000 people and the Saturday event sold out very quickly. I spoke to a relatively new distributor who lived about 40 minutes from the venue that sold out. So she booked for the alternate venue which was 4 hours away instead! I commended her on this commitment and ...

Building rapport with network marketing prospects who actually call you back!

I recently had someone come up to me at an event and told me they kept my book, ‘79 Network Marketing Tips For Fast-Track Success‘, right beside the toilet! Unsure whether this was as a back-up plan in case of possible disaster, I was assured this was a compliment! They went on to tell me it was because the book was so simple with short, one and two page tips ...
