MLM is always looking for ways to work smarter and achieve the greatest return on investment including personal time, money and effort. Network marketers measure their success by increasing prospects that turn into quality distributors and results that can be duplicated in MLM networks. Successful MLM follows proven rules for achieving financial security. So, what are the rules for success and what keeps the MLM network motivated? Let’s start with time, money and business motivation.
Remember the song “9 to 5” made popular by Dolly Parton?
The lyrics read … “Work 9 to 5, how to make a living, can barely survive, everyone takes and doesn’t give. They only use your mind and they never give you credit, that’s enough to drive you crazy, if you let it” .
“9 to 5, they get you where they want, there is a better life. You think about it, don’t you? It’s a rich man’s game, no matter what it’s called. And you spend your life, putting money in his wallet.”
Network Marketers are motivated by a number of determined successes … achieving abundance by duplicating practices through their MLM downline minimizing personal time, compensating individual leaders in the network based on effort and productivity with a profit sharing compilation plan and minimizing efforts through technology. The MLM network gave all three prizes instead of “putting money in someone else’s wallet.
Now let’s look at the simple rules that are followed by successful MLM leaders.
How many times have you made some MLMs while others struggled and more specifically, why did the individuals in the network achieve their aspired status and others worked in vain?
Well, one success book that must be used by every MLM leader is The 4-Hour Work Week by Timothy Ferriss. The author describes the “secret rules” used by MLM leaders. This is the Wall Street Journal # 1 bestseller and there is a “warning” on the back cover that states “don’t read this book unless you want to quit your job.” Rule # 1 for MLM is to plan your “9-5” exit strategy. In addition, Ferriss tells you to forget about the old retirement concept and the remaining life plans that are deferred, no need to wait … and any excuses not to. Welcome to the endless opportunities of MLM. Whether your dream of escaping the rat race, experiencing world class travel, earning a six-digit monthly income or just living more and working less, this book is a blueprint. In essence, to achieve success, MLM leaders have changed their mindset on technology and climbing the conventional corporate ladder.
After expanding your mind’s horizons, this book offers a step-by-step guide to a luxurious lifestyle with …
– teach you how to outsource your life (technology) and do whatever you want
– how to eliminate 50% of your work in 48 hours using the forgotten principles of Italian economists
-how to exchange long-term careers with short jobs and often “many retirees”
Sounds exactly like Network Marketing! With some adaptations, the book rules apply to building a successful network
I will be one of the first to admit that leaving my traditional 9-5 job and being able to live and work according to the hours I choose is the main reason I became a network marketer. I want the freedom to make myself rich, not make my boss rich. I want to be in a position to use the talent given by God to determine my destiny. After finding my opportunity, I looked for a system that would teach me the rules of MLM to allow me to use my time to produce definite results and create wealth in terms of money and wisdom and maximize my efforts to influence the greater good.
In short, the rule that I follow is …
– learn from the best
-Apply knowledge and learn duplication skills
– tracking technology
Technology allows me to implement automated processes for training and build relationships with my MLM downlines. Technology can provide a steady stream of prospects which are important rules for sustaining growth. Technology can also provide methods to profit from various income streams.
