7 Basic Skills for Network Marketing Success

Network Marketing is evolving every single day. It’s becoming the profession many of us are proud to be part of, while others believe it is still one of those pyramid things. It’s really too bad, that more people wouldn’t take the time to see the amazing career opportunity Network Marketing really is. Wait a minute, what am I saying, it’s wonderful that most people believe Network Marketing is a pyramid scam or scheme because it allows those of us with the vision to spread the word and assist those who believe to create an incredible income stream for themselves and for others.

The questions still remains, can anyone be successful in the Network Marketing Profession? My simple answer is Yes and No!

Not unless the person is willing to do non-average, abnormal, weird and unusual things. And do those things a LOT.


So here are 7 Basic Skills for Success in Network Marketing

1. Talk to People (TTP)

With the amazing power of the internet, along with the rise of social media, we don’t even have to leave the comfort of our home to be able to find people to talk to. If you have a computer, an internet connection and a telephone you can build a very successful Network Marketing business from your home office. Talking to people isn’t just about belly to belly, cheek to cheek, bum to bum anymore. It’s about finding people who are looking for you! Talking to people who are looking for a change in their life. And we won’t find anyone if we don’t talk to people. That can be verbal communication or online chat in social media locations or even email. And please understand this, there will come a time when you will have to speak to your prospects over the phone to build a successful business. So understand the phone in my opinion is a key component to your Network Marketing Success. You can find all kinds of people to talk to out there, but you must talk to them! It really is a numbers game!


2. Become a Professional Inviter

I can’t stress this enough. This is one of the most important skills you must master in order to be a success with your Network Marketing business. Learning what to say and how to say it is key!


3. Inform

Use people that are better at explaining your opportunity than you are. Utilize websites, webinars, funnels, conference calls etc. I always say, let the system do the explaining. Systems work and people fail! All you have to do is make sure you have the inviting part down and you will get people in front of the information.


4. Closing (ABC)

You must always ask for the close! If you don’t ask, you don’t receive. Questions are key here, and making people understand you care and are the right person for them to be partnering with. Third party validation by someone you work with, who is knowledgeable and has some success in your Network Marketing business would be perfect to connect with on the phone utilizing a three-way phone properly.


5. Follow Up

Here is where the rubber meets the road. You’ve heard it before, the money is in the follow up. It may take people 5, 6, 7 or more times to be exposed to something before making a decision. And no one way is the right way. You may offer someone a first exposure via a webinar, perhaps another via a funnel and even another just via an information site. But you must be following up and tracking your follow ups. This comes back to doing uncomfortable things over and over that most people will not do. So be uncomfortable and watch things happen.


6. Involve

Once your prospect has made the decision to partner with you, now is the time to plug them into your system. Using the products or service and obtaining results, then telling people about those results is the most important part of your Network Marketing business. And is really the simplicity of your Network Marketing business. You must inform them as to how the system works, and walk them through it step by step. If you do this step correctly, you will see duplication quickly ensue and massive growth and culture will be created.


7. Build to the next BIG Event

Whether you are having an event online, in a convention center or where ever, building to the next event can seriously explode your Network Marketing business. When involving people in your Network Marketing business you must be calendaring with them, so they know when the next events are. And when you do presentations or small local meetings these events must always be promoted, so people can meet others doing the exact same thing….making life better with Network Marketing.
