I just got this question from a gentleman named Isaiah on FaceBook, and after re-reading my reply decided it was important that you heard it too…
It’s a common question and I feel it can really help you in your business, regardless if you’re a beginner or a seasoned vet (It’s the basics that separate the great from the failures.)
Enjoy and let me know what you think in the comment section below…
Here’s Isaiah’s Question:
Trying to get into the network Marketing business, are there any tips to getting new reps, What do guys like you do to attract ppl before you were successful? – Isaiah J.
I’m assuming this is your first attempt at running a home based business, is that right?
If it is, awesome, and more importantly, super-smart that you’re looking for ways to improve your chances of being successful up front.
Now that being said…
Many “Marketing Coaches” will tell you if you want to make your business a success, you need to start generating leads on line, building a list, or networking with friends and family and if you do it right, you’ll get the results you want…
The truth is, all this stuff works, but the average person coming into this industry fails 95% of the time.
…the average “successful” entrepreneur “fails” at business an average of 4 times before putting together a business that makes money (big money).
Not what you wanted to hear, is it?
But understanding this is good news for 2 reasons…
- The sooner you accept these facts, the more realistic you can be in approaching your business growth and less likely to fall for “get rich quick” opportunities.
- This will also create for you a “matter-of-fact” attitude towards marketing your business, and this will help you be more analytical about what’s working and what needs to be stopped in your ad spending.
So what can you do to help ensure your success right out the gate?
Get out there and join your 1st business and get the failing out of the way as fast as you can.
Just be sure to fail “forward” and make sure you aren’t “gambling” with your marketing investment.
In other words, don’t use money you need for house, car, or food expecting the “opportunity of a lifetime” to pay off and change your life for the better (truth is you’ll end up on the street in most cases).
Failing forward means:
- Make reasonable, marketing investments (whether that’s time or money) into your business
- Measure your activity (I.E. track everything you do to determine what result it nets you)
- And most importantly when you analyze your results be sure to dump the losing investments, and multiply your winning actions.
So, the long answer to your short question is…
- Join your 1st business with your “eyes-wide-open”
- Invest frugally (both your time and money)
- Track ALL marketing activity. ( you can’t improve what you don’t measure.)
- Analyze results regularly (weekly/monthly)
- Dump the losers, and do more of the winning activities.
One final thing I strongly suggest…
(As self serving as this sounds) get a copy of my MLM Business Blueprint.
I’ve built the entire program around these principles and go further into detail about how to implement each of these suggestions to turn any home based “attempt” into a viable, real business you can be proud of.
That’s why I call it the MLM “BUSINESS” Blueprint ;0)

P.S. You know, one of the things I get asked most frequently by new members is:
“I just need to know a quick tip to getting my business started making money, I can handle the rest from there, how do I do that?…”
You know, as much as I wish that were true, The reality is, success in business (any business) is a combination of specific skill-sets, working together to create a constant, predictable, positive-cash-flow that funnels into your bank account.
You just can’t earn a good living until this happens (trust me I chased the “quick fixes” for years and got myself further into debt every time.)
I know that our companies and unplines swear it but, it’s NOT just recruiting a couple of folks and expecting them to do the heavy lifting from there.
The truth is this…
Until you dedicate yourself to improving the core skill sets
you need to accomplish these results…
…you’ll just continue to blow from opportunity to opportunity, chasing any hope that swindlers & snake oil salesmen have for you “this week”.
Since 2003 I’ve coached thousands of networkers from all walks of life, companies, and starting points, and the biggest improvements I’ve found were almost ALWAYS after the student grasped this concept…
…and in fact the only way any student ever got to “top earner” status was when they accepted this truth and implemented it daily.
That’s why I’ve dedicated nearly a third of my course, MLM Business Blueprint, to not only identifying which skill sets to work on first but, which ones to work on next, and beyond (even which ones you should NEVER develop as they’ll keep you from getting BIG success).
“Ok so what skill-set should I focus on first to get the fastest results in business, Greg?”
Great question, because not all skill sets are created equal.
Unfortunately the honest answer is…
…it depends on where you are, what you’ve already learned, and what your current resources are.
But again, THAT IS WHAT THE BLUEPRINT IS FOR!
It will walk you through the self evaluation to help you clearly define where you are now, and what you should work on next to get past your recruiting bottle-neck and start out-recruiting your upline in under 90 days.
Even better, it lays out the ENTIRE marketing process from lead generation, marketing funnels, online as well as offline marketing processes we currently use in our multiple 6 and 7 figure companies, to recruit dozens of people every day.
And it hands you the entire systematic approach I use to coach my $10k students, from beginning to end, for less than the cost of a dinner for 2 at Olive Garden.
