Ok, probably a toddler couldn’t follow these steps to build a network marketing downline.
But what I’m about to tell you is so simple that a toddler could do it . . . if toddlers had hands large enough to work a computer keyboard.
So if you’ve been feeling like you’re pounding your head against the multi-level-marketing equivalent of a brick wall, take some aspirin and relax. Let me help you make this part of your network marketing business easy.
Be a Star
No one would ever have heard of Susan Boyle if she hadn’t had the courage to take the stage in Britain’s Got Talent in 2009. You know I’m right about this—or if you don’t, take a moment to read about her on Wikipedia.
That woman had tried everything there was to try and had been rebuffed every time. She’s even tried out for a different British show and was mocked publicly by the MC.
But that didn’t stop Susan. With all that against her and Simon Cowell in front of her, Susan Boyle owned that stage from the first 3 notes of I Dreamed a Dream. And you know what? Her first CD is one of the best selling of all time.
What does this mean for you as a network marketer trying to build a downline? It means that you, too, need to become a star. And you don’t do that by marketing a product. You do it by marketing yourself—your expertise, your experience, and your story!
People don’t follow products or business models. People follow people. Become someone people want to follow, and your downline will come to you.
Think of our toddler. Toddlers don’t have to be told to be cute or to get our attention—they just do it.
Invest in Yourself
What do toddlers do in their every waking moment? They learn—colors, and shapes, and oh, my, that must be my nose! If you want to achieve network marketing success and build yourself a hearty downline, you need to adopt a toddler’s enthusiasm for learning.
Why? Because one of the keys to becoming a network marketing star is to bring value to your downline’s table. To bring that value, you have to have it. This means you need to follow your own network marketing mentor’s advice and educate yourself constantly.
I’m one of the top earners in the network marketing industry. I spend thousands every single year on marketing educational materials. Does that tell you something?
Speaking of Your Network Marketing Mentor . . .
If you haven’t found a network marketing mentor to work with yet, stop everything else you’re doing and do that now. Why? Because we don’t live long enough to keep reinventing the wheel. Why try when all that knowledge is available.
The most successful network marketers are happy to help others who are working to succeed in our industry. I know that I count my own success in large part by the number of new network marketers I help get on their own 2 feet.
Remember our toddler? Toddlers learn by following the examples of adults. Smart network marketers learn by following the experts.
So don’t be shy. Find one network marketing’s masters, and start learning what you really need to know. Then you’ll be able to teach your network marketing downline.
