5-Beginner Steps To MLM Success…

Look Ma, I Can Do MLM All By Myself...

Hey Gang,

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.

My Reply:


Hey Isaiah,

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…

  1. 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.
  2. 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…

  1. Join your 1st business with your “eyes-wide-open”
  2. Invest frugally (both your time and money)
  3. Track ALL marketing activity. ( you can’t improve what you don’t measure.)
  4. Analyze results regularly (weekly/monthly)
  5. 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)

You can learn how to get a copy of it by opting in to the right—>

Hope this helps Isaiah and Good luck…

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.


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.

Get your copy of the MLM Business Blueprint here and start the process of developing your very own consistent, positive cash-flowing home-business now.

Just opt in to the right ——> to get started.

    Hello Greg. Was wondering if you are still selling your blueprint Plan. Would i be receiving a package or are the cds all on line? Is this for real, cause i recently received a few gurus trying to sell me similar plans. Confused

    Hello Greg, really enjoyed reading your sound advice and all the wonderful comments, I have been in Network Marketing for sometime now with some success. The internet is great but its also overwhelming with so many choices and so much information, it really requires so much focus, alot of personal development and a strong will to make it through the hard times. The support of a mentor who has the success you desire is I believe the strongest link you can have in this industry. I am looking forward in mastering the art of marketing online and off for my network marketing company. Thanks for all your insights. Iris

    Greg, All your advice is right on the money…no pun intended. I especially liked your create a list, do the activity and Fail Forward. If I might add just one thing that has really helped me. Have a System, Be Yourself and Focus on the Process and not the Results. If you doing the right activities and not worried about the results, it will happen. This all a numbers game.
    Thanks, RJ!

    This is good info. Zija’s Brian Beane teaches:
    1) Prospect (try to get at least 50 people’s info)
    2) Pique (pique their interest with a video or by inviting to a product call, etc.)
    3) Pass (to uplin via 3-way call)
    They will then:
    4} Present
    5) Plug them into training
    6) Promote for the next event and tell them to bring people with them.

    The rule is that the person who piques cannot invite. Something that my sponsor forgot. If I hadn’t asked Brian questions I would never have known where to get the training.

    All I have to add to what you’ve said is if you feel you aren’t being trained and you don’t know what you’re doing, go over your sponsor’s head – maybe customer support – and find someone who will mentor you.

    Zija is a great business with a great support system. They also have good training. And now they have opened Zija University, which really supplements everything you learn from calls and everyone else. I love it!

    Greg, you hit the nail on the head, and it’s true what you said about how your upline wiil tell you to get out there and find you a rep that will explode your business. Not a wise approach.

    Hello Greg,

    You have a great article and I look forward to visiting again soon. When we visit someone’s blog or article we always learn something. Commenting is a viable way of showing a person you care and enjoyed your visit. The internet is like anything else in life, the more time you put into it the more you will get out of it. And most importantly always give value. What we give comes back twenty fold.

    Being a successful entrepreneur on the Internet is all about giving value if you wish for that higher lofty place called the good life. The amount of money you make will come down to the value that you offer the world, and how much you help others learn what is working for you.

    The advise I would give anyone getting started in this industry or if you are seasoned, is the following:

    (1) Find a good mentor. (Greg’s a Good One!)
    (2) Become a student of personal development, life, and Business.
    (3) Always be a student no matter how successful you become. (You Never Know What You Don’t Know)
    (4) Offer as much value to the world as possible and be sure to share your strategies with others.
    (5) Remember it’s a marathon and not a race.
    (6) Always have FUN! Stick to the above list and you will have success.

    Make today the best day of your life!

    Hey Greg this is an amazing site and opportunity for some continuous learning. Like a shark I always try to keep swimming keep moving forward and to do that I need to open myself up to new opportunities and this is one of those.

    I am particularly interested in your Tags 3D rolodex and was curious as to the program or software to create that. it is an eye catching amazing program.

    thanks for your time and sharing with all who are willing to learn

        I thank you so very much for all of your insights. I’ve been following you for some time now and I am a firm believer that anything worth having in life or otherwise you have to put time and effort into. I have just recently started my home based business with FHTM when I saw no help in sight and I was all alone in this business until I saw you one day. God really does answer prayer and he answered mines with a gentleman named Greg Gomez III. I will be buying your stragedies in the very near future. Thanks for opening up and giving of yourself to those in need.

    Hey Greg!

    You nailed it right on the head! You have to go in with your eyes wide open. I like how you stated to “fail forward”. Just make intelligent decisions and do not be fooled by the “get rich quick” schemes. It does not work!

    As usual, great information!

    Hey Greg!

    Great stuff you have going here! I really like how you just lay out the facts here without telling people there are secrets to learn, but just skills like anything else.

    Oh, and I have only heard great things about your MLM Business Blueprint 😉 I need to get a copy on payday!

    Thanks for the post!

      Hey Gabriel,

      Thanks for the kind words, I figure there is plenty of “puffery” out there without me adding to the fluffiness.

      The only real “secret” is you just need to take action, monitor your results, and improve your next actions from there.

      That’s what’s worked for me and my top students.

      Enjoy and I’ll look for you inside Gabriel.

      Hey Ken, Thanks my friend.

      As to the “ping” no clue how, but I’ll get my tech guy on it 😉
