It is not easy to build a network marketing business. The majority of people who venture into network marketing fail; only a small percentage of about 3% succeed. That is a very small percentage. What does that mean for you? That means that the successful 3% of network marketers are in a class all by themselves. They are looking at what the masses are doing and then they are venturing in the total opposite direction. They are innovators who stand out from the crowd. They are doing things that far exceed what most are willing to do. They are eating, sleeping, and breathing their network marketing businesses. You will not get very far if you are just average.
Today, the economy is in turmoil and millions upon millions of people are struggling, out of work, and trying to figure out how to provide for their families. People are moving in droves in the direction of network marketing as the means to solve their daily problems; unfortunately, network marketing is not a get-rich-quick type of business. You are no longer trading time for dollars. You are now putting in the time and the dollars.
Network marketing is an investment in your future. You are going to have to roll up your sleeves and be prepared to give up some blood, some sweat, and some tears. It is not about barreling through company after company until you hit the “JACKPOT”, the company that is going to make you rich beyond your years. Network marketing is nothing like the state lottery where you can get lucky by selecting the right combination of numbers and “BOOM” in an instant you are a millionaire. First off, the odds of winning the lottery are quite low. Secondly, there is no “jackpot” company out there. No matter what business you are in, if you do not put in the WORK you will not win.
So, how do you win in network marketing? Hard work! And then more hard work! Successful marketers will tell you that realistically it took them anywhere from six months to several years to earn real money. If you listen to the highly successful MLM icons you will hear about all the bumps and bruises that were sustained as they traveled that long and rough road to MLM success. It is a process that takes time. Like a beautiful piece of pottery, you have to take shape and mold your business.
I see so many “desperate” marketers out there in the internet-land on a daily basis, and yes I said DESPERATE! I get so many business opportunities shoved at me daily. Don’t get me wrong I am always open to new ways to earn income from home. But I come across rudeness and inconsideration; my Facebook wall gets spammed daily. That is not a successful business formula. It is important to study the basics of marketing. It is important to learn proper marketing and internet etiquette. And it is very important to take the time to study how the 3% of success stories came to be. These people want to zoom right past that long and rough road and fast-track right to Network Marketing Utopia. It cannot be done!
