One of the hardest tips to understand is that you have to expect people to say, “No.” It is not personal, it is business and in sales if you let the answer, “No,” get to you, then you will have a very short sales and network marketing career. The word “yes” is your income, so work on getting more yes’s than no’s.
In order for your network marketing business to be a success, you must begin to think like a CEO. When you manage your company with strong convictions, your customers are assured that you believe in your products and services. As a result, they will always be comfortable doing business with you.
Networking has to happen where there are people to network with. If you feel uncomfortable at a trade show discussing your network marketing business, then you will never succeed. Get over the drama and force yourself to do it! You’ll be nervous the first few times, then you’ll find it gets easier from there.
Look for the right company to work with. Find out if they share any values in common with you. Ask yourself if you would actually use the products or enjoy selling them. Look for a company that uses methods you find interesting and stimulating. You should also compare different companies before choosing.
Take ownership in the company as if you were CEO. If you cannot believe in your product or if you cannot value the service you provide, that will be evident to your customer and lead to failure. Act as if you have every stake in the success of this business based on a solid product and principles behind what you are selling.
Network marketing is a business like any other and that means you need to develop a business plan. If you just decide to “wing it,” you are pretty much guaranteeing that you are going to go down in flames. Develop your plan, write it down and stick to it. Failure to plan becomes a failure to succeed.
Remember when working as a network marketer, that this is not a road to instant riches. It takes a lot of effort to make people believe in your product and of the potential it has to make them wealthy. Some folks are going to be slow to come around and you cannot push them into making hasty decisions.
If you’re becoming a network marketer because you were recruited by someone else, look for leadership qualities in this person. If they do not possess them, you may not want to stick around for an inept markerter who will make money through your efforts. Perhaps you can branch out on your own.
