That is after all what network marketing is about, and why it’s had such a long lifespan as an industry.
But all too often this goes out the window. And if I seem to always be harping on this, this is because I think that it is ULTRA important.
If You Truly Want to Become a Network Marketing Success, Then You Must Become a Mentor…
Here’s the deal…
Bringing people into your network marketing business brings with it a very big responsibility.
It’s a responsibility that many people probably aren’t as comfortable with as they might think they are. Most of the time recruiting for network marketing is purely profit driven.
Of course you’re in this business to make money, and earn profits, but the fact is that it’s not the only thing that matters. It’s actually a bi-product of what matters. What matters is helping as many other people become successful as possible. The end result of THAT is you earning more profits than you’ve probably ever dreamed of in your entire life.
How Do You Get So Many Others to See Network Marketing Success…
…It’s actually pretty simple.
You mentor them to success. You show them exactly what they need to do. You get through the steps. You don’t pull them over any mile markers or over the finish line, but you do push them there (gently).
It’s sort of like the old adage “Give a man a fish, he eats for the day. Teach a man to fish and he eats for life.” Well, mentoring in network marketing is the same concept, but the only difference is with this business is that every time you teach a person to fish, you get a small piece of their catch.
Teach enough people, and all of those small pieces begin to add up to a feast for you and your family.
Mentoring for network marketing success doesn’t need to be as hard as you might think it is actually.
We’ve literally mentored thousands of people. The way to do this the right way, where it’s not taxing on you and your energy, is to simply make as many steps automated as possible.
You need to get people into your system and on their way to earning money right away. You need to help them get through the first few steps (phone calls, meetings) and then you just keep the map open for them, and give them guidance along the way. Point them from point A to B, then B to C, and eventually they start taking control on their own.
They may have crucial questions for you, and you may have to caringly nudge them, but eventually they’re fishing away, and you’re all eating for life, and both of you are seeing incredible network marketing success.
