Expert Network Marketers Reveal The Keys To Achieving Network Marketing Success
By a Distinguished Panel of Online Experts
This issue of Home Business Magazine® covers network marketing — a hot and popular type of business within the home-based business industry. When we think of network marketing, companies such as Amway and Herbalife come to mind. Besides these two, there are also many other long-lasting reputable network marketing companies that home business owners can consider working with. A network marketing company recruits teams of sales people (distributors) to promote its products and services. These distributors in turn recruit their own teams of distributors and so on and so on, which creates a network of people that both use and promote the products or services of that network marketing company. The distributors are compensated not only for the sales they generate, but also for the sales of the distributors that they recruit. Each recruited team of distributors is referred to as a downline, and a downline can provide multiple levels of compensation. Besides the attractive compensation, people get involved in network marketing businesses for other advantages:
A network marketing business can be worked part-time or full-time with flexible hours;
A person can typically get involved with network marketing with little or no experience and for very low start-up costs; and
Training is typically provided by the network marketing company.
This story shares the advice and tips from network marketing experts on how to achieve network marketing success in 2015. You will discover how to: lay the foundation for network marketing success; take your network marketing strategy online; be successful in dealing with prospects and distributors; communicate with your network marketing team; turn knowledge and research into network marketing success; build your network marketing business on Twitter; blog and enhance your website for your network marketing business; create valuable content to sell network marketing; and be an effective network marketing leader. The advice and tips shared by these network marketing experts can help you grow and succeed in a network marketing business this year and onward.
Lay the Foundation for Network Marketing Success
By Gerard Cassagnol
You may have the passion, drive, and investment money to get a network marketing business started. You may also have the money to sustain yourself and your family while you build your network marketing business. You are ready. You have researched a number of network marketing companies that peak your business interest. And now it’s time to put them to the test. Here are eleven questions you must ask before going into business with a network marketing company that will assist you in laying the foundation for real success:
- Is the company solid — financially and ethically?
- Is there a real need in the marketplace for its services or products?
- Do the products or services support themselves without offering the business opportunity?
- Does the company have a real Internet presence?
- Can you recruit online?
- After the initial investment, how much can you expect to spend before you see a check?
- How fast and how often does the company pay commissions?
- Are checks direct deposited?
- Is there a real potential for override income?
- Is there potential for real residual income?
- Is there real training?
If a company provides good, concrete answers to these questions, then it’s a good bet that going into business with that network marketing company will be a successful endeavor. HBM

Take Your Network Marketing Strategy Online
By Dave O’Neill
You need the right strategy to have success in network marketing. Taking your network marketing strategies online is a wise move. It is the only way to truly fast-track and succeed in your business. A successful online strategy in network marketing is comprised of 3 fundamental things:
- Building a list of prospects.
A universal truth is that every single top 1% earner in this industry has one thing in common: A HUGE LIST …whether that’s from their warm market, other people’s warm market, or building their list using the Internet. A great online strategy to do this is to create a “sales funnel” and to use it to capture leads for your network marketing business. The fastest way to do this is with a well-designed lead capture page and Solo Ad marketing. They are all simply designed to do one thing: build your list. A good sales funnel will help you to promote your network marketing opportunity and automate the relationship building process, thus freeing up your time to continue attracting more leads for your network marketing business. Use an autoresponder to automate your email follow up and drip market information about your business to your prospect.
- Building a relationship with those prospects.
Here is a simple fact: People buy you, not your network marketing opportunity. So the next step is to build a powerful relationship with your list. Never lead with your network marketing opportunity first! Do not frequently post about your network marketing opportunity on social media, email, or blog posts. Provide your target market with value, and spend time building a relationship with them. They will be more likely to join you in your network marketing opportunity when they’ve gotten to know you better and have grown to trust you.
- Marketing your goods and services to those prospects.
Once your prospects have gotten to know you better and have grown to trust you, they are more likely to buy whatever you are marketing. When you share a quality product or service with them that really helps them, they’ll love you for it! And they’ll be even more eager to buy something the next time you make a recommendation. It is exponentially easier to get a previous customer to buy from you again than it is to go get a new customer. Your list allows you to create a following of people that will buy from you again and again.
A final note on marketing — consistency. There’s really no such thing as emailing your list too much — as long as you are providing value. You’re building a long-term pipeline. Just because someone doesn’t buy from you or join your downline in the first few months doesn’t mean that they’re not going to. We all have circumstances — but they change over time. You never know when someone’s circumstances or situation has changed and are now open to your network marketing opportunity. HBM
After 10 plus years in network marketing, Dave O’Neill has discovered some simple but very effective methods to attract an endless stream of “ready to buy” and “ready to join” prospects to your business on autopilot!

Be Successful in Dealing with Prospects and Distributors
By Dennis Hampton
The following are five tips on how to be successful in dealing with prospects and distributors in your network marketing business:
Tip #1: Network marketing can be a game where you fight to sign up the most people. This is not the best way to look at what you’re doing, because you could end up hurting people and having a bad reputation, thus ending your career. Instead, think of how the work you do could help people, and work from there on your road to success.
Tip #2: Stay involved with your new network marketing distributors and help them through the process. Be there to help them call their lists and learn how to handle objections and close deals. Work with their strengths to set up strategies for them to succeed in your network marketing business. The personal touch will help you build strong relationships with your distributors.
Tip #3: Never inflate prices when network marketing unless you want to lose your network completely. There may be times when you’re not making as much as you want, but avoid raising the prices of anything above market value. People joining your network aren’t stupid; they’ll go elsewhere.
Tip #4: Keep the network marketing information you present to bite-sized levels. Dumping a ton of information onto prospects all at once is a huge turn off. People will think that there is too much involved for them to be able to succeed. You always have to keep people knowing that they too can achieve the level of success that you have. If you make it seem too difficult, you’ve taken that belief away.
Tip #5: Be careful with just how much information you give to your new prospects. Your goal is to build excitement and energy in the product. You want to give prospects information that gets them from being prospects to becoming members of your downline. Don’t try to sugar coat anything in your network marketing business, but you don’t need to spend time on a million details. HBM

Communicate Closely with Your Network Marketing Team
By Lynne Mongell
To be successful in network marketing, it is important that you meet up with your team on a regular basis. If you want your team to work together, meet regularly, and devise a plan to help your team work towards their goals. Meetings are beneficial for each individual and for the team as a whole.
Your down line needs to be communicative and productive. Are they confused and overwhelmed? Offer to help them with their network marketing plans. Open up the channels of communication with your team and encourage them to see you as a valuable resource. Introduce your members to each other to encourage a broad base of interaction and support within your entire group. You need your group to be top-notch, and to be so it’s crucial to foster community.
Use your network, and get help from the other employees of your company. Do not hold off until the last minute before asking for help. Do not hide your issues; instead, act to resolve them quickly. To your success! HBM

Knowledge and Research = Network Marketing Success
By Jens Holvoet
If you implement these six tips into your network marketing business, you are sure to become successful.
Tip #1: If you have an idol within the network marketing industry, someone whose ethics and leadership skills you truly admire, mirror the way they operate. By emulating these role models, you can enhance your ability to act and think the way that they do, thereby increasing your successfulness.
Tip #2: Join and participate in online forums for succeeding with network marketing. You can find answers to questions, share tips of your own, or even find a mentor to help you one-on-one. Regularly visit a forum of your choice, and dedicate time to learning something new from your fellow members.
Tip #3: Find out about who people know. The way that you sell your products and recruit for your network should be designed to build enthusiasm and make people want to share the information you give them with friends. Only talk to those you know are serious about making a purchase or who have a very large network.
Tip #4: Give products a trial run prior to kicking off any marketing initiatives. You’ll be able to gain an advanced knowledge of the product which will allow you to sell it better. If the product is not very good, you may need to reassess why you are involved in trying to sell it.
Tip #5: Get a white board and write your goals on it as a constant reminder of what you are working for and of your long term strategy. What are your business goals? Envision what represents success for you — a new home, performance car, or anything else that represents achievement.
Tip #6: Stay on top of learning new network marketing techniques and strategies. In order to succeed, you should spend a significant amount of time reading books about social media, network marketing, and other outlets. Attending webinars hosted by successful network marketers can provide a plethora of useful information. If you’re more educated on the matter, you can be a great resource to others. HBM

Blogging and Website Tips for Your Network Marketing Business
By Charles Bewry
Get a team together to accomplish your network marketing tasks. You can have an in-house writing team, or you can outsource the work. Have them increase your web presence by writing blogs, creating photos and videos, and posting informative articles. You will soon see results in your network marketing business with the right team and a solid game-plan.
Post your photo on your network marketing website to add to your credibility. I’d highly recommend having a professional shot taken, but don’t make it look too serious or too friendly. A moving shot of you laughing could make you seem unreliable and goofy, but a shot of you without a smile will make you look rigid and cold. Try to get a photo that makes you look approachable and trustworthy.
A cost-effective, and simple, solution to your network marketing needs is to start your own blog. You can easily acquire a following, and generate more traffic to your products and services. Keep your posts interesting, and relevant to your network marketing business. You can then easily drum-up interest and success in your network marketing business without expense. HBM

Creating Valuable Content to Sell Network Marketing
By Barbara Harrington
It is not necessary for you to approach people face-to-face in order to be successful with network marketing. By using the Internet, you can generate leads for your network marketing business around the clock and even while you sleep. If you are creating valuable content and distributing it on the Internet through your blog and social media channels, you will find it easy to generate a steady flow of leads.
Some people know how to sell network marketing using the Internet, but they approach it in the wrong way. One of the most common mistakes they make is to try and sell their products immediately or promote their network marketing business as a get rich quick scheme. This approach is very ineffective and can lead you to getting banned from many of the popular social media websites. Instead, you should be focused on creating helpful and useful content for your network marketing prospects.
For example, if you are in a network marketing business in the weight loss industry, you might create content which explains what foods are most likely to lead to an expanding waistline. You might create a video which explains the top foods which are filling but that have a low amount of calories. You could create a slideshow presentation which details the biggest traps for dieters. This is useful content that people will be interested in and will share with their own friends and family. It also attracts qualified network marketing prospects that are likely to be interested in the solution that you are going to offer them. When you create valuable content, network marketing prospects start to view you as an expert — a source of information which will help them to solve their problems and achieve their goals. They are also much more likely subscribe to your email marketing lists and to provide you with permission to get in contact with them. HBM

Effective Leadership is Essential for Network Marketing Success
By Dr. Joe Rubino
Effective network marketing leaders execute bold action plans that move their businesses and lives in a forward manner. Their visions as successful network marketing leaders will encompass every aspect of their businesses and lives. Leaders take responsibility for manifesting their visions by formulating specific, detailed and grounded action plans that will bring them about. They continually evaluate whether their actions are sufficient in quantity and effective enough in quality to make their visions come true.
Network marketing leaders are well served to evaluate the efficacy of their actions on a weekly basis and make the adjustments necessary to realize their goals. They realize that in order to inspire others and generate results, their actions must be consistent over time and persistent in frequency to insure the results desired. Successful network marketing leaders know their enrollment ratios; that is, they know how many prospects they will need to speak with, on average, in order to identify and develop an on-fire, do-whatever-it-takes leader. They execute a long-term daily action commit to speak with a minimum number of prospects about their business every day so that, based upon their success ratios, they will bring about the number of new leaders necessary to build a business dynasty.
Effective network marketing leaders instill belief in the network marketing concept, their company, products, income opportunity, and their own leadership abilities as well as those of their partners. HBM
