Who doesn’t…
I come across so many people that say “I’m going to make a million dollars in network marketing”. I have conversations with people telling me how they’re going to become millionaires.
That’s great I’ll help you reach that goal every way I can.
But you know what?
Not everyone is going to make a million dollars in network marketing… and that’s ok.
Most people’s lives would change with an extra $500 or $1000 a month.
If you’re in network marketing the opportunity is here to become a millionaire.
let’s talk about that for a second.
To become a millionaire in network marketing is going to take lot of WORK.
Yes, you can do it in the shortest amount of time compared to other business opportunities but you still have to WORK…
But you work smart not hard.
And the cost for start up is minimal.
But it still takes WORK!! no matter how you cut it.
To become a millionaire in network marketing you’re going to have to do things differently.
What do I mean? One of my mentors Michael Dlouhy told me this.
“Duffy if you want more, you’re going have to become more”.
That made a lot of sense to me.
So what if you’re not going to make a million dollars a year in network marketing?
Look I’m not saying you’re not going to make a million dollars, but let’s say it’s not in the cards or that’s an amount you can’t relate to. (Lots of people can’t relate to earning that kind of money)
How much do you make now?
I’ll go with the average and say $30,000. Everything is ok, sometimes it’s a struggle but you get by, but things could be better.
Imagine doubling your income. Can you imagine earning $60,000 per year?
Sure you can.
So if you didn’t make a million dollars a year but you’re making $60,000 in network marketing would you consider yourself a failure?
NO!!
But let’s say your better at this then you thought and you’re earning $100,000 to $150,000 per year.
Would you consider yourself a failure?
HELL NO!!
Do you think you could have a pretty good life earning that amount each year?
YOU BET!!!
Man if you’re earning that kind of money from network marketing. You’re winning trips, vacations, getting deals on conventions or even winning trips to your companies conventions, your winning shopping trips, bonus money, car programs, free product or services.
The things many people have to spend money on such as trips, vacations, products, services and cars. You’re could be getting them from your company for a lot less or even free, because of your ranking in your company.
The life you may want may be a lot closer then you think.
Tell me, if you made $100,000 to $150,000 per year in network marketing you’d be a very happy camper, yes?
Tell me you wouldn’t, I dare ya.
I believe in you!!
What is a leads group? Leads groups seem to be the most popular form of networking judging that comment by the fact that there are more leads groups in existence that have been around for a long time than most other types of groups.
Leads groups are often referred to as closed groups. This means that there can only be one type of a business represented in a group. Lets say that I am a web designer. In a closed group I would be the only web designer represented in the group. Other web designers would be allowed to visit, but if they wanted to join the organization they would have to find a group that did not have a web designer. If there was no opening in an existing group for a web designer, the person would have to go on a waiting list until an opening became available, or a new group was formed.
Most leads groups meet once a week. There are some that only meet once a month. Leads groups offer something that a lot of people need. Structure and discipline. What do I mean by this?
Structure – In a leads group you do not have to be a master net worker. As a matter of fact, you can be a shy person and still have success in a leads group. Most leads groups allow a given amount of time to tell other members about your business. This usually ranges from one to five minutes. In this allotted amount of time you can go into great detail about your business including describing what type of leads you are looking for. The format is usually accomplished by sitting around a large table, and a leader moderates the time and asks questions. The meetings are generally held early in the morning or at lunchtime.
Discipline – In a leads group you are expected to show up for the meetings. Theoretically, if a leads group had only 15 members and several people did not show up, it would be difficult to have a reasonable meeting. To insure against this happening most groups require that you assign a substitute when you can not attend. This substitute should be a person in the same industry as you so that the balance of the group is not affected. In this situation, if you have a tendency to miss a lot of meetings, it would not be good to join a leads group. If you miss a lot of meetings without a sub, you will be ejected from the group.
The upside? In a leads group you will get to know people very well over time and get an idea of their abilities to fulfill the needs of a referral. This is good if you do not have time during the week to meet with people one-on-one in order to get to know them. A dedicated group will provide you with a steady stream of leads that you can utilize to expand your business.
The downside? Well, sometimes the leads become a paramount obligation and people feel pressured to pass them. If they are passing leads that are just names and numbers without a true expressed need, the leads generally lead you nowhere. Another issue is a member of the group whose quality of product or service does not meet the standards that you would want to refer to someone. It is difficult to pass a solid qualified lead to someone who will not provide the kind of service that you would expect them to.
There are also a few groups in existence that are in essence leads groups. They allow freedom to go to any meeting you wish as long as you are a member. The format is the same, seated at a table, and there is usually a time limit. The problem with these groups is that people wander in and out and without a lot of time to talk individually, you still have to set appointments outside of the group to really get to know someone. Without the discipline, the freeform leads group usually does not last for a long period of time. Often these groups open and close with great regularity leaving the members to search for another meeting to attend.
In closing, I would like to add that there is no wrong or right group to belong to. Visit groups and you will find the ones that are right for you. It is often beneficial to belong to three types of groups to get the most out of your networking efforts.
