Focus On Your Network Marketing Business
There are many ways to grow your Network Marketing business. Some are quicker than others. Having focus on the right activities will help you grow your company and distribute your products.
Develop Sniper Focus
While I’m writing this article the 2012 paralympics are in London, my home town. While watching these amazing athletes, I watched an interview where one of the athletes said “some people think we do this for a laugh, I haven’t gone running at 5:30 every morning for the last 4 years to have a laugh. I have one leg and am here to win Gold”.
That started to make me think. Am I a part-time leader and do I want my Network Marketing consultants to be the same? Am I just having a laugh and seeing where this takes me. NO. I’m focused and I want to succeed. You can start Network Marketing part-time or full-time but you can’t do it some times and you must have a certain mind set and know how to focus. Lead it part-time and it will earn part-time.
Have you ever met a successful person who doesn’t have focus? Nobody who has got to the top of their field has been part-time. If you had to have a heart operation, would you opt for the part-time doctor with no focus?
The simple fact is that successful people are focused. Don’t try part-time leadership because you will fail. Focus on being the leader you would want to follow.
You will never make it big with Network Marketing if you have no focus. But this isn’t any old focus. You have to focus like a sniper and focus on one target/activity at a time.
First write a list of targets or activities you want to focus on to move your Arbonne company forward. Then grade your skill at these activities. Use a simple grading system from A to E.
For example a list could look like the one below:
- Sponsoring B
- Presentations C
- Following Up E
- Objections B
- Training A
From there you can break it down into smaller lists.
- Speaking with strangers D
- Knowing what to say B
- Your Why A
- Make it about them C
- Covering all points B
This is a good way of finding your weak areas.
Once you have this list, focus first on the activities that are graded E within your skills. Focus on these until you become great at them.
Next, look at activities that are D and focus on them until you become great at them. Keep doing this until you have all A’s and B’s.
When people start Network Marketing they sometimes try to focus on too many activities that doesn’t move the business forward or even worst, then don’t focus at all.
Everyone has their reasons not to have positive focus with Network Marketing.
What are your reasons for not focusing on the activities?
- Fear of failure and of success.
- Spouse doesn’t support you.
- Weak sponsor skills.
Put your reasons to one side and ask yourself one question. “Are you willing to focus on your network marketing company and give this opportunity the chance it deserves?”
