How To Be A Successful Online MLM Distributor (And Be YOURSELF, Too)
Quite frankly, there are a lot of positives and negatives to building MLM organizations online, and many people don’t understand what it really takes to prosper in a company using technology to market themselves.
I got started in the MLM profession 7 years ago and I went through five years of painful business building experiences because I was taught how to do things that didn’t jive with my personality. Basically, I was told repeatedly to build lists of my friends, family and associates, but the problem was that I’m just not that social of a person. Don’t get me wrong, I do like to have fun and be with friends (and I do enjoy talking on the phone), but my relative group of friends has always been small.
So how does a person who enjoys alone time and doesn’t like hanging out in shopping malls and business networking events build a massive downline by using warm market lists? Well, they either change their personality or they just don’t do it, that’s how. It just so happens that I like myself… (Should I change my whole personality just to build a business?)
…So after 5 years, I actually figured this warm market thing out and built a massively successful group, but it just wasn’t me. Personally, flying all around the world doing meetings five nights a week just isn’t my definition of abundance, and that’s not what I wanted to create. So I needed a different way where I could still sponsor massive amounts of distributors without changing who I was.
People would always say ‘be duplicatable’ but you know what? I didn’t have ANY success until I decided that was complete crap and started doing things my own way. In fact, I’m so positive about MLM duplication being full of poo that I made this killer YouTube video explaining why:
That’s where learning how to run online MLM marketing campaigns comes in. Rather than building a list of friends and family, you can leverage yourself through creating a tidal wave of social interactions that happen automatically, 24 hours a day, 7 days per week. For example, last month I had more than 30,000 visitors to my websites. I don’t think there’s any way that I could create that kind of exposure offline without paying an arm and a leg for traffic, and I certainly couldn’t do it by wandering around in Safeway…
So how do you enter the online world of MLM and become successful? It’s simple. All you’ve got to do is learn how to provide legitimate, lasting value to as many people as possible, and people will be attracted to working with you automatically, (you’ve just got to learn how to create massive exposure, and everything else is easy).
It’s as simple as that. For myself, I learned that I had gained an incredible amount of knowledge during my time offline building my business that translated into solutions to problems people were having online, so I took that knowledge and I conveyed it by writing articles, making videos, and sending empowering emails to people who subscribed to my list. Within two months, my phone was ringing off the hook all day and night with people who wanted to work with me. (I thought this was much cooler than hotel meeting…)
So ask yourself the question: What value can you provide that will set you apart? What are your strengths? Are you analytical? Do you know how to manage your time extraordinarily well? Do you know how to do powerful presentations or are you better at writing? How can you market your business and ENJOY yourself, too?
Knowing who you are is half the battle. Find your strengths and make a plan to expose the online world to the power of YOU, and you’ll go in the right direction, and get there faster than you can imagine.
If you feel like you don’t have any value to provide, you just haven’t yet discovered your strengths, that’s all.
I have a special gift for you from a friend of mine, Mark Yarnell that I’m going to post up on my blog over the next couple of days. If you don’t know Mark, he’s earned more than $30,000,000 in the MLM profession over the last 20 years and he’s written several bestselling books. Mark’s going to come on my blog as a special guest and reveal what it ACTUALLY takes to build a massive MLM business, and the best part?
It doesn’t matter at all what your personality is. What matters is that you have a clear vision, that you’re willing to work, and that you have a MENTOR who can guide you with your strengths to reach the heights of success that you’ve always dreamed of. Now don’t get me wrong, you can’t be a wimp about life and succeed online in your MLM at the same time. MLM is not going to work for people who are lazy and afraid to take massive action.
However, marketing my MLM business online has truly been a blessing, and it has been a revolution in the way that I operate. I’ve been sponsoring 2-4 people every day into my company, with less effort than I’ve ever exerted to sponsor 2-4 people in a week… (and I’m just getting started). The simple fact is that online marketing isn’t just a good way to market my business, it’s the BEST possible way for ME.
However, we need to remember that this style of marketing isn’t for everyone. Some people will do dramatically better by sticking to traditional approaches, and some people just can’t stand technology. FIND YOUR STRENGTHS and build your business in a way that is attractive and FUN for YOU. I know that that flies in the face of the whole ‘be duplicatable’ philosophy, but have you EVER met an MLM leader that was living the lifestyle you’ve always wanted that was actually a duplicatable person? I never have, and I probably know a lot more MLM leaders than most of you.
ALL of them found a way to sponsor LOTS of distributors and ALL of them did it differently. Funny enough, 90% of them preach ‘be duplicatable and you’ll make it’. (But haven’t you tried that already?)
Those are the thoughts for today my friends, have a great day and we’ll talk again soon. Look out for my exclusive interview with Mark (this is just awesome). If you want to learn how I sponsor people with zero resistance, rejection, without talking to stupid cold leads all day, maybe online marketing will work well for your MLM, too.
