I 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?

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…

In direct sales, MLM and network marketing, people seek out opportunities and leaders who can show them the way. A strong tool for attracting people who are seeking leaders is to brand yourself as a leader in the industry. You may be thinking you are not a leader or what do you have to offer that would attract others. The answer to that you can figure out on your own but, I can assure you there is something in your experience that you can capitalize on and promote as your value to others. You may have to take some time and review your experiences and the knowledge you gained from past jobs, military experience or sports. If you do some soul-searching I am sure you will find some value that…
