This article is for those people that really want to make money at Network Marketing. Don't fool yourself! To make any real money at network marketing, you need to become a pro. To become a pro at network marketing, you need a certain basic skill set. The good thing is that it is a learned skill set. So lets see what your curriculum should look like. A note of caution: Don't use this as an excuse to spend all your time learning and organizing and not building your business. All these skills are "hands on" skills. They are best learned by doing- not by reading, listening or philosophizing. So get out there and do it! I will try to put the list in order of importance. Just keep in mind that the skills are like juggling. Each skill is not isolated by itself. They all work together.
Motivation- The first skill you need to learn is self motivation. Without this skill, your business will not even get started! Re-programing your subconscious is the number one skill in this subject. NLP has done a great job of detailing what you can do to change your subconscious mindset. Some great textbooks for this subject are: Awaken the Giant Within, andUnlimited Power by Tony Robbins, and The Greatest Salesman in the World and Success University by Og Mandino
Marketing and Lead Generation- this is the next skill even before basic Special Pro AC Team like accounting and office management. Because with out possibilities there will be no business. As you start in your studies you realize that the very successful in Network Marketing usually excel at just one maybe two marketing methods.
Maybe it is Internets based like pay per click, article marketing, social media or blogging. Maybe it is person to person like cold calling, warm market or just meeting people at the mall. The important thing is to realize that you just need to pick one or maybe two. Start using it to generate leads. When you get to 10 to 50 leads a week depending on the method then you can specialize in the next lead generation method. When I first started in my lead generation specialty I found myself overwhelmed trying to accomplish everything. It is impossible.
