Hey folks I hope you all are having a good one. I know I am looking forward to a good weekend with family and friends. It is always such a joy to interact with them and hang out with them.
And this brings a very important topic I want to present to you. It has to do towards building a successful Network Marketing Business and something many of you should take heed of.
I know with the popularity of social media (like Twitter, You Tube, and Facebook,) Network Marketers want to dive in and have ALL their focus on getting new associates utilizing these outlets !
Well, of course many of us know this is a great way to build a Networking Marketing Business. However, I would definitely NOT put all your EGGS in just social media.
Just let me take you down yesteryear back 20, 30, 40 years ago. I remember an influx of distributors with Amway, Herbalife, Shakelys and others who became millionaires and multiple 6 digit figure earners year after year after year.
People from the outside shook their heads wondering how they did it. Was it luck and just being at the right place at the right time ? Or maybe these people were at the top of the hierarchy and made money from all those below ?
I will answer this with a resounding NO !! You know how these Amway soldiers made their millions ? From good ole hard work by networking with family members, friends, co workers, Pta associates, church members, and literally anyone who could breath and eat.
Yeah you know the ones at the old strip malls who handed out flyers to every Tom, Dick, and Harry who was in the parking lot going to their car.
These people grew humongous down lines. They helped their personal sponsors in developing their own down lines. And trained them to do the same etc..etc.. This was truly building a business from the grass roots up !
And their was no internet back then. Just neighborhood Tupper Ware parties and Water filtration systems set up at local grocery stores.
These people were troopers and it all started with one person telling the other person on the street that he might want to take a look at this product and its income opportunity !
To me that is pretty darn powerful , and I think more of us should not turn our back on this seemingly archaic but actually quite effective way in building our Network Marketing Business 😉
Cheers to those guys who blazed the trail for us Network Marketers in the 21st century !! 🙂
P.S. And guys this is a very important P.S. ! At least have 20 to 30% of your personal sponsored affiliates be from your ‘Warm List’ ! Think about it. If many people do not know how to market a business online then how will that be duplicatable for Joe the pizza guy who has no computer ? Let him know he can do this working with his ‘Warm List’ just like you did.
