How's Your Duplication?

Let's talk about the subject of duplication. Top business leaders in our industry have incredible duplication and are masters at it. This is one of the reasons why they have such a deep down line. Duplication is the system you have in place to share with your down line and help them recruit others to their teams. You know when duplication is working because your team grows before your eyes. Easy right? Not always.
Have you verbally vomited about your opportunity to someone? Have you been so excited about the possibility of your business for the person sitting before you that you forget to stop talking? This type of approach turns people off and also makes it seem that your job is something that is too complicated for them to do. This is why duplication is so crucial to a successful network marketing business. You are teaching your prospect how to do the business from the very first meeting!
Your presentation to a prospect should be something that is simple and easy to understand. It should include third party validation about your opportunity. Show her materials your company provides such as a short video, or slide presentation. You are no longer the person disseminating the information to her. Your company is. She is getting third party validation on what your company offers. It creates a break from you and focuses her on another presentation form. If you do all the talking, all the demonstrating and all the presenting,  you have probably lost your prospect. Have you fallen into this category? I sure have!
This technique is also easily duplicatable! While your prospect is watching your company video, she is thinking to herself, "Yeah, I can show my friends a video. This isn't too hard. I can do this." And that is the outcome you are hoping for!
Network marketing can be made easier for you, your downline and your prospect by the use of simple duplication. Don't over think it. Keep it simple.

How Strong is Your Why?

Why, why, why. I have heard this word so many times. Has your upline asked you about your WHY? Do you need a why to achieve  your network marketing dreams? Is this accurate? 
 YES! A million times, YES! Your WHY is connected to just about everything you do in your business. It is a very personal thing and something that you should know at the deepest level of your soul. So, here is the million dollar question. What is YOUR Why? Why are you doing this?
If you answered MONEY, then I think you should dig a bit deeper. Of course money is a reason, and a big reason because we should be paid for our work, but is it the real reason? For example, are you looking to spend more time with your family? To be fulfilled? To make your family proud of you? Is it to help others who can't help themselves? Is it to have time freedom? Many people work dead end jobs for the money and the benefits and they hate what they do. They aren't happy. Why does network marketing make you happy?

Most network markets love to help others. Every time you offer your opportunity, you are giving someone the chance to change her life in amazing ways. We can make a difference in the world. We can radiate positivity and happiness to others. We can help others help themselves. We can build ourselves up and live our wildest dreams. Wow! How exciting!
 If you were to die today, (god forbid), would you be proud of what you have accomplished? Would you be proud of the life you have lead and what you have achieved?
So what drives you? Dig deep. What is your WHY?

Goal Setting for the Summer-Get your FREE worksheet here!

Let's talk about goal setting for the summer. It gets crazy. The kids are home from school. You are going to camps, vacations, family visits and more. It is hard to keep track and it is EASY to lose track of the time! Before you know it school will be starting again, and your network marketing business will be an afterthought. How can you find the time?
Do not fret my friends! With a little planning, your network marketing business can sizzle all summer long. Follow these steps for success!
  1. Open you calendar and look at what you will be up to all summer long. Circle events where you know you will be connecting with people you haven't seen in a while. Circle activities where you can expand your connections and make new friends. Next, make meaningful connections with these people and get to know them. Drop your business into conversation if appropriate, or just get their contact information to keep in touch.
  2. Write down your goals for the summer. If you have a specific promotion you are working towards, or a sales target you want to achieve write it down.
  3. Now that you have your big goal in place, break it down into smaller chunks. For example, to reach that sales target, how many people are you going to have to talk to this summer. Write it down.
  4. Now that you have that number, break it into 3 months. How many people will you have to talk to per month? Then, how many people per week? How many people per day?
And voila! You have a road map to success! Remember, a summer that sizzles keeps the fire stoked for the fall as well. This will set you up for a successful fall too.
