What Are Some Of The Challenges That You Will Face In Network Marketing?

Aug 17, 2007
When considering building a network marketing business there are a few challenges that must be conquered to help you with finally achieving success.

1. Getting help from your upline may be one of the most important challenges in determining your success. Upline support is incredibly important since most people who sign up for a network marketing program are new and need help getting started. Why would someone not want to help their downline? Maybe they just want to recruit more distributors or they could be new to network marketing also and thus not realize that their downlines success is going to help them be successful.

TIP: Before joining any network marketing program look for someone who is going to provide the resources and support that you need to succeed. It is well worth the effort and could determine how well you do in building your online business.

2. One of the major reasons for avoiding network marketing programs is the fear of having to sell a product. Know what the network marketing pros do? They network.

Know your business, learn your business and when it comes up, speak honestly and with conviction and others will want to follow your example. Love your business and it will show.

3. Generating leads or prospects is one of the most important tasks of any business. One way to generate prospects for your network marketing business is to make sure that you are available to as many people as possible. A great way to create interest is to offer something for free. It should be something that continually reminds your prospects of your business.

Information makes a great free offer and can be offered by email or through a download. Of course, the information you provide should contain information about your opportunity.

TIP: You should not waste your time talking to people who have not expressed an interest in what you are offering. Generating good leads and then following up with them regularly is the only way to build your business without wasting time.

4. Duplication is the secret to success with any network marketing program. The majority of people new to network marketing have no idea what they should do to be successful.

Successful network marketers are able to create an easily duplicatable system of recruiting and then by passing it on to their downline they are sure to build a successful team.

5. Know your companies products! It can be very hard to explain to others what you are doing when you have no idea what your company or their products are all about.

6. Does this sound familiar? You sign up for a network marketing program with great expectations. You get all the information about the business, products, pay plan, etc. Suddenly you realize how much work this is, that you may have to actually sell something, and worst of all, you get negative vibes from your family!

Most of us do not stay with a program long enough to see any results. Avoid dwelling on getting rich and instead think about what your business needs to grow. Remember that consistency equals growth.

TIP: Refuse to give up! Ordinary people can become successful just by refusing to give up, refusing to get discouraged, and refusing to stop marketing for prospects!

No matter what others may say, success does not happen overnight.

7. Knowing what online resources are available to help you build your network marketing business is critical to success. Make sure before joining any program that your upline sponsor is willing and able to provide you with free online advertising resources. There is no reason to spend alot of money on advertising.

8. Avoid get rich quick schemes! If you see any claims of making thousands of dollars every month know that they are probably highly exaggerated and are just looking to take your money. You can get rich with network marketing but it does take time and effort, but remember that with the right support and resources you can build a profitable business.

9. Before joining any network marketing company use the search engines to do some investigation. Find out if the company that you are interesed in has a good reputation, and if their are any complaints. Another good resource are online forums. Chat with people who are already involved with the company that you are interested in.

10. Motivation is the key to building a productive team. If you are not focused and motivated then neither will your downline members! Call them, ask if they need any help, provide quality support and you will get quality results!

Success in network marketing is possible for those who are committed to doing whatever it takes and are ready to overcome any challenges.

So how exactly can you succeed at network marketing?

By finding a team with a duplicatable system that is easy to use and will teach you how to succeed, so you can then teach your downline how to succeed.
