In everyday life, roughly nine out of ten successful people had a mentor.

In everyday life, roughly nine out of ten successful people had a mentor.

Multilevel marketing companies are built on the mentorship model where top-tier salespeople recruit salespeople below them to sell products and services. The top-tiered salesperson makes a commission on the products and services that they sell, as well as on the sales of those in their downline. This model encourages recruiting of new salespeople, while also allowing new recruits to have a mentor who will answer questions and provide examples of success.

In everyday life, roughly nine out of ten successful people had a mentor. Whereas, those who don’t have strong mentors in network marketing are those whom are more likely to fail or quit. Therefore, when it comes to choosing a sponsor/mentor, the best thing to do is to look for one that is seasoned, successful and willing to provide the critical network marketing mentorship that you need to be successful. And when it comes time for you to sponsor and mentor, be sure to train your recruits in the successful ways that you’ve been taught. Their success equates to your success.

The need for capital is in inverse proportion to your ability to recruit.

The need for capital is in inverse proportion to your ability to recruit.

This is the million dollar question. The need for capital is in inverse proportion to your ability to recruit. Your network marketing company will either have hired that talent or you will bring on a vice president of marketing to help search for key first leaders, typically under some type of Presidential Founder Program, which will include protocols for products and rewards to key first leaders.

Distributors should first search their “warm market,” that is to say, family, friends, work, church, clubs, etc. Surprisingly, if one looks at the top distributors of many companies, it will be noted that they did not have experience in MLM, but rather their success was driven by their passionate bonding with product, management, sales leaders, and vision of

A Vice President of Marketing should have a demonstrated record of building, managing, and sustaining network marketing sales organizations.

The two leading causes of MLM company failure are lack of capital and the inability to recruit. In fact, your need for capital is in inverse proportion to your ability to recruit. Many of the leading direct selling companies have been founded by individuals with long track records of building downline sales organizations. If you possess that talent, along with good product or service, you are well on your way. However, if you don’t possess such capabilities, it may be necessary to hire such talent, often in the form of a Vice President of Marketing.

A Vice President of Marketing should have a demonstrated record of building, managing, and sustaining network marketing sales organizations. You don’t just want a hand holder. You want an individual who has the capability of locating founding distributors and working with them to build a broad-based sales

Tell us how your network marketing company is streamlining its technology. Has it eased the sales process or made it more complicated?

Door-to-door sales are becoming the sales method of ancient times. As technology advances so does the network marketing industry. More commonly, consultants are using personalized websites, often provided by their MLM company, as well as new devices, such as tablets, as sales and recruiting tools. Industry experts say that enhancements in tablet communication software enable consultants in the field to achieve greater success. Tablets enable salespeople to give more striking presentations, lower attrition rates, increase sales, as well as make ordering and enrolling new consultants easier. And, industry experts agree that the network marketing companies that embrace the newest technology will attract a new crowd of independent business owners and also the highly-desirable top sellers. Companies that fail to adapt to the latest technology may end up losing its most valuable salespeople to more industry-leading direct selling models.
