Is Anyone Buying Your Network Marketing Solutions?

May 13, 2008
Some people get away from the core concepts of network marketing. It's marketing whether you do it face-to-face or online. If you're talking to someone in person, you're asking them questions to see if there's a need that you can fill.

If you're doing Internet marketing, you're finding ways to reach out to people who are likely to have a problem they want a solution to.

All in all, good marketing is tapping into needs that already exist. I'm sure you've heard that before. You want to also focus on helping people buy things that they want, not sell them on things they don't.

People don't want a business just to have a business. They want a home business to give them solutions to their problems. If you're in network marketing, affiliate marketing or Internet marketing then you are in the solutions business.

Providing your potential prospects with a product or service is only giving them half the solution to their problem. They need to know how to market whatever it is you're selling.

Some people like going to their warm market, whereas other people don't have one to go to. No one marketing tactic that goes after only one stream of prospects will do for all you bring into your business.

In order to be an effective solutions provider, you need to have effective marketing in place in order to help you reach more people or the right people with your solutions. By not having an effective marketing system or strategy in place, you may be making your business harder than what it has to be.

It's a common saying in the network marketing industry that people want to follow a leader or a system; you need to be one or have the other. It's preferable to be a leader with a duplicable system. Some people take that to mean any old kind of system will do, when in fact nothing can be further from the case.

Remember you're giving your potential prospects a solution with your product or service. Your solution has to be a complete one. The number one reason people drop out of companies or go company hopping is that they didn't earn any money fast enough. I'm sure you've heard that the faster your prospects get a check, the longer they'll stay in the business.

That's why your system should not be heavily dependent on one's skills in order to be successful at it. This is not to say people don't need skills to be successful, because they do. Cold-calling leads takes a lot of skill, not to mention it can take a lot of time to get good at it. The people who are successful at it have developed their skills.

Telling your newly gained prospects to go build a website takes skill unless they want to spend even more money and hire someone to do it. The more skill is involved, the longer it will be for them to get a check. The longer it is for them to get a check, the lower the chances they will stick around in your business.

I'm not telling you anything you didn't know already. It's just that I'm sure you forget the dynamics of network marketing when you're operating on autopilot like most of us.

A system that delivers the same message to all prospects and doesn't rely too heavily on the new business owner skills to have success with it, is one that will get further ahead with your potential prospects.

If you're going to present solutions to people, you should have an entire solution ready for them. After all, you must remember you're in the solutions business.
