Learn From MLM rookie mistakes
If you learn the methods to doing an MLM business correctly, you can make all the money you want. If you don’t, it can be the most frustrating experience of your life!
Here’s the top five mlm mistakes.
All of these mistakes are avoidable.
Avoidable mistake #1: Sending sales packages to “cold lists.
Mailing your opportunity to a cold list is the surest way to drain your bank account. These people will most likely trash your information without so much as a simple glance. The way you avoid this mistake is to only mail to “warm leads.” Warm leads are leads who specifically ask for more information on your opportunity.
Avoidable mistake #2: Not following-up with your prospects!
Here’s how you avoid this mistake. Ask your sponsor for the series of follow-up letters they use to recruit people. Then ask them for the phone script they’ve been using. You can now create yourself a good follow-up system that will get you a bunch of new partners.
Avoidable mistake #3: Mailing more than one offer to your prospect.
There’s nothing worse than opening an envelope and finding four to six other little offers falling to the floor. How amateurish! This really annoys your prospect. Your mailing goes straight to the garbage. I know where you’re getting this technique from. Someone in mail order told you to stuff your envelopes with as many related offers to maximize the usage of your 33 cent stamp. Only put ONE offer in your mailings!
Avoidable mistake #4: Refusing To Spend Money On Training.
Shame, shame on you! Network Marketing is a real business like any other legitimate business. And in all legitimate businesses I know of, you must learn how to work the business the right way. Otherwise, you can’t expect to make any money. Without proper training you have no right expecting to make money. Always spend money on training material, books, course, tapes, etc.
Avoidable mistake #5: Being Too Damn Lazy.
That one may hurt a little bit. One of the biggest problems I see with many would-be MLM’ers is their laziness. All of us (and, yes, I must even include myself) are lazier than we ought to be. We’re humans, right? We’re brought up on the notion that “livin’ is supposed to be easy.” Laziness is our human birthright. Which is why most MLM’ers love to talk so much about working to make money, even though many never really apply the concept.
Let’s be honest: all people are just not created equal! Despite what the industry “gurus” would have you believe, not everyone is cut out to be in business for themselves. I don’t care what they tell you. Most people who enter the home-based business field would rather watch television than make a few follow-up phone calls.
Did you see your reflection in the mirror when you read the 5 big mistakes people make above? I’m sure you did. These mistakes are easy to avoid. When you become successful at avoiding them, you should see your success improve.
You CAN make a tremendous living in this industry IF you treat it like a business.
Until next time…
