what is network marketingMany people just do not know what network marketing is all about.  So many times, people will say “oh, is that one of those pyramid deals?” I don’t even cringe when I hear that, it just means these people are misinformed, and I look at it as an opportunity for me to inform them, or at least give them my 2 cents.

If I had to pick one word to sum up what network marketing is all about it would be CONNECTIONS.

That’s right, it’s not about down lines, up lines, volume, and auto ships.  To be successful with network marketing you need to be making connections as often as possible.  You need to be talking with other people, trying to figure out what is missing in their life, and then providing them with a solution.  Be their pain killer.

All to often, most network marketers go about their business the wrong way.  They harass friends and family to either buy products or join their business.  They shamelessly plug their business as the best, and do nothing to attract other people to them.  In return, they fail miserably then go on to say how network marketing sucks, and that it is a scam because they did not make money with it.

One thing network marketing isn’t is – a get rich scheme.  Hopefully I did not just ruin if for you!

However, the ones that make it full time know this.  They treat it like a business.  The reality is that you can make a ton of money network marketing, and enjoy a life of residual income and lifestyle freedoms that few people get to enjoy.  If you treat your business like a million dollar business, you can get million dollar results.  However, if you treat it like a hobby then don’t expect big things to happen.  The real reason most people fail is because of them, not the system, not their up line, not the company, just them.

It may sound harsh, but it is the truth.  This business is not for the faint of heart, and if you want to make it work you need to take the bull by the horns, get involved, educate yourself and go to work.

Talk to people.  Find out their pains.  Find out what keeps them up at night.  This is what it is all about.  Why?  Simple, because you can provide a solution in most cases.  Don’t start conversations by pitching you opportunity, start by listening.  Get people to tell you their wants and dreams, then at the right time you indirectly offer a viable solution.

That is network marketing!
