M-L-M Success - Bond With Your Dream

A good salesman can have you picturing your dream life in moments, and then actually LIVING that dream life, because he's going to leverage YOUR mental image to sell you HIS product or service. The better he can link what he's selling to your dream, the sooner you'll make that buying decision.

That's how sales works. The best salesperson gets you to visualize exactly what you want, in all its detail. Knowing that, why not use this technique on yourself?
We talk about visualization a lot. But do you actually ever DO it? And if so, are you doing it effectively?

Why not model the successful sales pro? YOU call the shots. Bond with your dream using all your senses - sight, sound, smell, touch, taste. Make it 100% vivid, just like you are really there now. Write down the details of the dream you are picturing, so you can use those details over and over.

Do it every day. The sooner you bond with your dream every day, the sooner you will pay the price to achieve it.That is how life works.

To Your Success,

Marketing Principle #1 Is Critical

Business models drive the behavior in the field. You cannot change the model. You can only work with it.

Some companies have a business model of very high-priced products which could never be sold to the public on product merit alone. The only way they can be sold is as a money-making opportunity. THAT business model creates an atmosphere of "recruit, recruit, recruit." And you're setting yourself up for massive failure.

Think about this. Marketing Principle #1 anywhere in the world is that a business sells products or services for a profit. If your business can't do that, and you only earn profits by recruiting people - who recruit people who recruit people who recruit people - THAT is not normal! THAT is absolutely not sound marketing. THAT will end up getting the attention of the feds.

Companies that only recruit instead of retailing products or services usually have a very good reason. Which is, their products or services are way over-priced, so no one could ever actually sell them. Don't put yourself at that competitive disadvantage.

Prelaunch! Ground Floor Opportunity!

Some people seem to be forever joining the next ground floor opportunity. And the next and the next and the next - alluvasudden, somebody who made some money sometime a long time ago - this one is so good, they came out of retirement for it!

The Blue personality type is especially susceptible to this. (I know - I'm a Blue!) You're looking for excitement, and what could be more exciting than something new? So you just jump, jump, jump, and you're never in one place long enough to ever build anything.

Unless you own the Fountain of Youth, you're going to get older, just like the rest of us. The worst words to hear in network marketing are: "ground floor opportunity". Over 90% of the companies that get started, don't make it 2 years. And most of the rest are gone after 5 years.

Your chances aren't much worse playing the lottery.

It's important to choose a company that has proven it will be around long-term. Pre-launch deals don't qualify. Only a very small percentage of them will last even 2 years.

Your benchmark should be at least 2 years. It takes that long to knock the cobwebs out of it. It takes 2 years to get their ducks in a row, to get their campaigns together, to get everything approved in different countries, to get warehouses built, and all that stuff.

They've already survived a lot of the normal growing pains. They have much better long-term prospects than any "pre-launch". Make them prove themselves by being around 2 years before you commit your time & money to that business.

How Desperate Are You?

Are you so desperate you'll recruit anybody who can fog a mirror?

First, your prospects can smell desperation. You can't hide it from them, and the good ones will avoid you like the plague.

Second, network marketing is about relationships, not selling. People feel it when you treat them as a number. When you have to build that dream for somebody all by yourself, with very limited help from them, you will spend ALL your time trying to build them a dream.

Be selective about who you want in your business. My mentor, Tom "Big Al" Schreiter, once told me never to sign up someone unless it was a person who I'd want to go on a one-month cruise with. THAT is a very good standard for you. Keep that benchmark in mind each time you talk to prospects. Then you'll recruit the right people.

Nothing drains your energy faster than trying to help an unmotivated person build a business. Life is just too short to waste all that effort.

To Your Success,
