Learning About MLM Secrets
Learning about MLM secrets involves 3 main areas: How to select a good program, how to recruit excellent downline members, and how to avoid the usual pitfalls that lead so many beginners to fail. In practice they can not be so neatly separated.
As you begin learning about MLM, understand it is a business – not a get rich quickly operation. People who are unwilling to take time to learn about MLMs basic techniques and strategies will fail. Never join a program without investigating it thoroughly. Search for articles about each program on Google, Bing, or Yahoo and listen to what they have to say about it. Succeeding in multilevel marketing is never as simple as sending out lists of colored postcards or purchasing an 'opt in' email list. Beware of programs that suggest such approaches because it marks their promoters as unenlightened about MLM secrets.
Take time initially to get your marketing education by learning about MLM from the articles you can find on the search engines (Google, etc) and read books about MLM marketing techniques.
Here is what I believe is the most important of the MLM secrets: Find a program that offers to train you, that provides a useful, product as its source of income, and that has already been proven to be successful. Avoid 'pre-launch' opportunities unless you know that the program's founder is a proven, expert, marketing leader and you feel confident that you know enough about MLM to make it work. Too much hype and too many promises should be red flags.
As you learn about MLM secrets, focus on learning the best recruiting techniques. For example, which of these MLM secrets' would you choose to use? A- Send out lots of postcards and mass e-mailings and hand out business cards and flyers (typically producing about a 1% response rate). B- Write helpful web articles about MLM secrets which contain links to your site or offer (generates 25% to 50% response rates). As you continue to learn about MLM secrets always investigate the proven response rates you can expect from any recruiting technique. It is often as simple as Googling 'response rate for MLM advertising with _____' (postcards, articles, etc.). It is seldom as simple as asking your up-line sponsor.
Once you have learned lots of MLM secrets and have selected a solid program to work, you are ready to recruit. You may find that members of that MLM are being successful using several different methods. Try them each in a small way and determine which works best for you. You may end up using more than one.
So, do your research about MLM techniques. Carefully investigate several MLM programs and establish that the one you select has a proven track record for beginners. Be patient at each step. You are learning a business, which, when pursued effectively, is making lots of us financially independent. Your first and most important goal must be to get a solid, basic, education about MLM secrets. Either diligently study the material available in books and web articles or join a network marketing training program (which will be faster and more likely more).
When you reach the point where the 'MLM secrets' you read about are really no longer MLM secrets, because you already know all about them, you are ready to roll up your sleeves and go get' em!
