There are a lot of mistakes many network marketers make over the years. Unfortunately, many in Nigeria today have fallen prey to some of them! Don’t let these MLM mistakes happen to you! Here are some of them:
Talking too much: Yes, as network marketers, talking is the key however stop talking too much! Talking too much is one of the biggest MLM mistakes! Master the art of the pause. Use the systems already in place to do the talking for you. It doesn’t matter much who you are – or who you think you are – systems put in place without all of the pressure of the sale, without all the pressure of sitting in front of a prospect – that will win far more often than not. Accept the fact that you don’t have all the answers.
Making your opportunity sound too easy: Facts are facts, if network marketing – like anything else – were so easy, everyone would be doing it. It’s not always easy. It takes hard work and perseverance. Do you only want to bring people into your team who decided to join because it’s easy or do you want people who will work hard to become successful. Network marketing concepts and principles are simple, but not easy.
Not Using Upline Support: Inexperienced network marketers might avoid their upline thinking, “I don’t want to bother them.” People who are experienced in network marketing will say they don’t need upline support. These MLM mistakes are profound! For the inexperienced, the upline is there to make you successful. For the experienced, you don’t call on your upline to get the job done. You call on them to show your prospect or downline how it’s done.
Refusing to Learn: One of the beautiful things about MLM industry is that the people who are winning at the top will actually take the time and energy to share what they know and help others work toward their success. But if you’re not willing to learn, it’s going to be a long and hard road. So it’s important to take the time to learn and then actually follow the system the company uses.
If you can avoid these mistakes, you’ll be well on your way to happy, successful career in network marketing!
