MLMers often stick to the three-foot rule (everyone within 3-feet of you is a prospect) and other traditional marketing tactics. But direct sales is like any other business. It can and should be marketed in a variety of ways that takes into consideration your target market, what it needs, how you can help it, and where it can be found.

Another network marketing training tip that you should always utilize is working directly with new people. The last thing you want to do is have people sign up under you and then allow them to get lost in the shuffle of all of your other activities during the week. When people are new, they need to be motivate. More than likely, your particular MLM company allows people to work together, visit the homes of potential clients and downline members, and also invite people to the meetings that you have each week. You want to make sure that these individuals know that you will be there with them every step of the way, and in doing so you will build their competence to move forward.

CEOs, SVPs, VPs, are the highest paid people in the company. The unique opportunity you have with a Network Marketing business is that you START at the top of your business, and your income will be dependent on how large of a team you build “below” you.

Influence – John C. Maxwell says that a leadership is influence, nothing more and nothing less. Everything rises and falls on leaderships, so it’s an essential attribute for success. Influence is also used to effectively and persuasively communicate the virtues of a good product or service, and to get people to say YES! We also know that at sales.
