Women, Network Marketing and Facebook

By Coach Roger

By Coach Roger

 

Most people who start in a network marketing or home based business are on a tight budget. Considering you might spend $300-$600 every month in marketing dollars, you want to make money quickly.

The question then becomes how do you maximize the budget you do have, even if you’re starting from zero? More and more MLM companies suggest marketing directly to other network marketers, a great idea. The logic being these people already understand the concept of leverage, they have bought into the network marketing business model and have already proven they are buyers.

But if everyone markets to the same demographic, does that share of the pie become too small? The answer: Absolutely not! There’s room for us all, folks.

Being Lazy And Winning With Your Marketing

By Coach Roger

By Coach Roger

Robert A. Heinlein, considered by many as the dean of science fiction writers said, “Progress isn’t made by early risers. It’s made by lazy men trying to find easier ways to do something.”

Bill Gates echoed the same sentiment, saying he would rather hire lazy people to do difficult jobs because they would find an easier way to get it done.

Stop Babying Your Downline

By Coach Roger

By Coach Roger

If you’re in a network marketing deal you know what happens when you recruit people, right? Some go nuts and start building their business, others waffle about and do nothing. In fact, most people do nothing.

So what do some of us do? We call them, we encourage them, we push them to the point of practically stalking them. We exert so much wasted energy trying to help them build their business, ultimately it just pisses us off.

You also know you don’t have to do that, right? Stop babying your downline, or business partners as I like to call them. Nobody wins in this scenario.

FIVE Critical Points To Help Your MLM Business

By Coach Roger

By Coach Roger

I was having a lively chat with a business partner the other day and he asked if being a network marketer meant he was a sales person. He was a little perplexed by my answer. To break it down, I listed five critical points everyone should know to help build an mlm business:

  • You Are A Leader

The short answer to him was ‘Yes’ he is in sales. First and foremost, sales people are leaders and the world needs good leaders. It’s also one of the highest paid professions. People WANT to be led because given the choice of work vs. the path of least resistance, that path will always win; it’s easier to follow than to lead, so be different.

21st Century Tactics

By Coach Roger

If you’ve been holding off on using the latest marketing methods, why is that? Maybe it’s time to consider incorporating 21st Century initiatives into your business. Surprisingly, some of the old practices in network marketing are still being taught today like, go after your warm market, meet in doughnut shops or approach strangers in malls – that last one is nuts!

Like some of you, I’m an ‘old dog’ per se, but I realized some time ago that while old school tactics may still work (which is why it’s still taught), it’s such an archaic way of doing business; today’s progressive marketers would never dream of using such tactics. However, that’s not to say traditional methods don’t work, they do but there is a finite number of people you can approach that way.

As you launch your network marketing business, there are a few things you must know before spending your hard-earned marketing dollars.

The Times They Are A Changin’

By Coach Roger

Nice pic, eh? Fyi, that’s not me lol but it highlights the fact that just 10 years ago, 4% of the US labor force –  meaning millions of people – worked from home, some of them in their boxers like this guy. That number today has significantly gone up. I remember when I first began calling business owners wanting them to check out a website and asking if they were “online”, which in 2007-2008 was effectively a new term. The reactions I would get would be “What’s that?” or “What the hell does that mean?”
