One of my favorite parts of network marketing is that you can design your life and that includes how you do your business. There are times I want or need for a season to go off-line. But, how can you achieve this and continue to build your business? It’s easy! And achievable! It comes down to learning 7 skills that anyone can learn. And from there, build an empire.
Eric Worre has a book called “Go Pro, 7 Steps to Becoming a Network Marketing Professional.” These 7 skills are:
1. Finding prospects, this is simply finding people who would be interested in learning these 7 skills.
2. Inviting them to understand what you offer.
3. Presenting this to them.
4. Following up until they say yes or no.
5. Closing. This is where they either become a partner or customer.
6. Get them started.
7. Promote events. Some companies, especially new ones, may not have events yet. In that situation, you use generic events. Eric Worre has one, so does Ray Higdon.
When I was first introduced to network marketing back in 1992, the internet wasn’t around. But yet, people were building. This is still true. You can build by going to the beach, the gym, school, and anywhere you go. It’s all about meeting people and building a relationship with them. Those people you meet could become a prospect. And then you just take them through the next 6 steps.
There are HUGELY successful leaders who have built online. But there are also other people who have built offline.
Don’t limit yourself by thinking that you can’t do this because you want to go offline. It can be done. Just as there are multiple diets that can help you be healthy, there are also multiple ways to build a network marketing business. You just need to find what works for you. And connect with leaders who will help you figure out what that is. And then doing it.
This is why I have Reggie Cochran as my leader. He’s been helping me for years figure out what works for me. And we’ve figured out that going with a combination of offline and online does work best. He has built his business by doing this as well. He builds his business online through Facebook (that’s how we met), but he also does it offline (he was recently in Mexico on the beach.
