New Years Success in Network Marketing

MLM success in 2014 www.AskJimmyJohnson.comThis is the time to look back on last year’s results in your network marketing business. Are you satisfied with the growth you experienced? If not, what is your plan of action for 2014? In life we can always make change for the better, but what better time than the beginning of a new year? If you have not yet taken the time to reflect on the results of the past 12 months then take this time to do so.

QUESTIONS TO ASK

  • Where was the size of my team at the start of 2013

  • How much money did my MLM business make in 2013

  • What would I change in last year’s business if I could

  • Did I do as much as I could have last year to grow my business.

Now is the time to decide what your business is going to look like 12 months from now. Sit down with pencil and paper and sketch it out. How many people do you want in your organization? Not only how much money do you intend to earn this year but also how much will you save. Putting pen to paper is key to planning your success for the new year. Goals only in the mind and not written down are nothing more than dreams.

Once goals are determined and put in writing, the next step is to create milestones or a time line for their accomplishment. You may want to start with modest results in the beginning months of 2014 and expect a compounding of your efforts as the months progress. After all, this is a building business. As you find more members to train in the duplication of your business, you should experience bigger and faster growth into the upcoming year.

What is key is to stop, step back and take an honest look at where you are and where you want to be. Many network marketers make the mistake of not facing the facts of the previous year. Many just hope thing will be different this year. As we have heard many times, hope is not a strategy. Real businesses are run with a plan or a strategy.  So this your time to make that plan for where you are headed after determining where you are to and where you came from.

Tom Hopkins and your network marketing success

Tom Hopkins Sales Training www/AskJimmyJohnson.comI come from a background of sales. I started working in real estate and within a year of struggling moved on to automotive retail sales. I spent twelve years in that business before becoming a full-time network marketer. It was only what I learned in the car business that allowed me to become a full-time direct seller. In my first couple of months I had a slow start but realized it had to be me since the old timers were selling like clockwork. To me as a newbie it looked like they were performing magic or casting spells on their customers. Someone recommended I attend a training seminar that was going to be held in the next state. I learn a lot in that one day class and even bought the gentleman’s cassettes, yes cassettes. The most important thing I learned that day was that sales was both an art and a science. Once I realized that great salespeople were not born but could actually become skilled through right training, I became a student of sales. That was a great investment in myself, because I not only soared in sales and income, later in my career I was in positions to train other salespeople. Seeing others become successful in automotive sales was the greatest payoff to me. One of those people within sixteen years actually retired with over one million dollars saved.

That is why to this day, I am a strong believer in sales education and self-improvement. It was my ability to not only sale but also teach others basic selling skills that allowed me to become full-time in network marketing back in 1998. One of my favorite sales trainers is Tom Hopkins. Tom also got off to a slow start in real estate as a 19 year old but within a year was one of the top listing agents in California. He also was introduced to sales training by the grand father of modern-day selling, J. Douglas Edwards. Tom not only became a student of sales and actually wrote the sales curriculum for a major real estate sales franchise company, but Mr. Edwards passed the baton on to Tom upon his retirement. Today Tom Hopkins leads the field in training sales people across the country and around the world. It was my exposure to Tom, thanks to a car company I was working for that took my selling career to a whole new level.

The thing I like best about reading Tom’s books and listening to his audios is that he makes the selling process as simple as it gets. Tom pushes practicing, drilling and rehearsing and that is what separates that Pros from the Wanna Be’s. I have recommended Tom’s materials to man over the years and those who applied themselves and the skills they learned have had very successful careers. This is true for those who work in network marketing or direct sales. Today I am suggesting that anybody who wants to take their network marketing business to the next level should start with themselves and make the investment to get better. Remember the old saying, don’t wish it would get easier, get better.

Stay the course for network marketing success

Stay the Course www.AskJimmyJohnson.comI get a lot of questions from marketers about how to be successful in MLM or network marketing. A lot of those questions are not specific such as how do I invite to a meeting or how do I get a phone number from a stranger, they are more generic like why have I not had success with network marketing? That is an invitation for me to ask some questions myself. One of the first questions I like to ask is why did you pick this company or opportunity to work with or what do you like best about your opportunity. It is amazing how may people can not give a clear, concise answer to those questions. A major reason for that is that most people appear to be working without goals or with no end in sight. It is very important to have a picture of what your business will look like once it is built as well as along the way. This is commonly referred to as goals.

As important as setting goals is and having a plan to reach those goals, it is every bit as important to have a reason for what you are doing. We have all heard the old saying, “where there’s a will there’s a way” and it is true. When our why is big enough we will figure out the how. Reminds me of Joe Girard in his book “How to Sell Anything to Anybody” explaining that after much misfortune in business he was motivated to feed his family and took on car selling to do it. When he looked at prospective customers he literally saw them as bags of groceries sitting before him. That is desire. So it is very important to know why you are will to go through what others won’t. Most people enter network marketing because of a friend or family member. Too many marketers take the business as a social happening rather than an opportunity to build a six or even seven figure annual income.

I do eventually get to the question of asking how many companies have you worked with. Many people have signed up for two, three or more companies and many of those are quick to tell you that network marketing doesn’t work. When you point out the successes in the company they will explain about luck and getting in at the right time. For anyone considering working with a network marketing company I suggest taking the time to find a product or service that ignites your emotions. Find something that turns you on. Study the successes of that company and ask yourself if the product or service is something you would definitely want you parents involved with. You do not have to jump into the first company you come across. If you are really interested in building a successful network marketing business or direct sales organization then pick the right company and them stay the course. Do not give up easily when things do not seem to be going your way. Times will be tough during business building but if was easy then everybody would be doing it and it would be paying minimum wage. Stay the course for network marketing success and professionalize by reading great books, listening to great CDs and attending every event you can get your butt to.

Prosperity Central www.AskJimmyJohnson.comIt has been a very busy month for me thanks to a new surge of distributors.

I recently started using a marketing management system to help build my network marketing business.

Pinging for network marketing success

blog pining image www.askjimmyjohnson.comOne of the quickest ways to establish an online presence is with blogging. Of course you will want to link your blog to other sites within your network such as Facebook, Twitter, Linkdin, Google+ and YouTube. If you are blogging, and you should be, you should also be pinging your blog updates. Having a blog is key to your network marking success. It is your blog that will establish your authority in your field of expertise. So what is a ping? There are online sites that will send out a ping to other websites to alert of a change on your blog site. Sending out a ping is like raising the red flag on the mailbox to tell the postman that you have new mail ready to be sent. So what you are doing is, you are telling the weblog tracking sites that your site has been updated.

There are two sites that I use to ping my blog updates. I use Pingler and Ping-O-Matic.  These two services are simple to use, you just fill in the blanks on these pages which require your blog title and URL that you want to promote through the ping process. Pingler even allows you to pick up to three categories to target blog readers that you most desire.

The real value of pinging is that search engines are alerted that you have an active weblog. This alert to the search engines keeps them coming back to review your blog and if you are blogging consistently you will become relevant to the search  sites. The real value to you is that as people search for information in your field of expertise, you are more likely to appear in search results and others will perceive you as the expert that you are.
