For a variety of reasons, not everyone who joins the Follow Our Lead team will do the simple steps necessary to be successful. What is likely to occur follows the Pareto Principle (or 80-20 Rule) which asserts that 80% of the productivity in your team comes from 20% of the team
Perhaps some of the following things are what differs between the 20% who move toward success and the 80% that don't.
Have the proper attitude
This is YOUR business and you've got to treat it like a business if you expect to reap the rewards of a business.
Be persistent and committed. This is NOT a "get-rich-quick" program. If you expect to experience HUGE success, you've got to get right between the ears. That means some personal development and to have realistic expectations.
Be prepared to spend AT LEAST one year in building the foundation of your business… and three to five years to reach the big payoff. Remember, that as you plug prospects in to your system, most of them will not make a decision in the first week, or month and for some… a year or more. Just stay focused with a positive attitude and do not stop following up with your prospects for as long as it takes for them to make a decision.
Avoid the "anaylsis paralysis" trap.
You DO NOT need to be an expert or know everything before getting started. What we have here is a simple process that is easily duplicated.
Sure… you may feel uncomfortable at first and that is normal. With time, if you'll consistently work your business, read the emails sent out by the team, read the Yahoo Forum messages, and join us on our weekly conference calls, you'll become more comfortable and the many questions you have right now will get answered. On the other hand, if you allow anaylsis paralysis to settle in, you'll get "cooked in the squat" and probably never get your business off the ground.
Communicate with your upline sponsor.
Let them know you are serious – not just in words, but in action.
Get AOL and Yahoo Instant Messaging
Encourage both your upline and downline and install and use Instant Messaging. This is a spectacular way to keep in contact.
Be sure that if you change your Internet Service Provider or change your email address, that you let your upline know of your new email address. If we don't have your CURRENT email address, we can't communicate with you and you will not receive important information.
Also, if you're using one of those free email accounts like Yahoo or Hotmail, you'll want to make sure you keep your inbox clear because it doesn't take much for your account to become full causing your email to bounce back as undeliverable.
Network Marketing, simply put, is drawing upon the strength of others to build wealth for you and for them. If you do network marketing the right way you will have a steady fast- growing income whether you put in a lot of hours or not.
Follow the lead of those who've gone before you and you will begin to experience the sort of freedom you can never attain with a traditional J.O.B.
Master the Pipeline
The key to your financial independence today comes down to one thing — your ability to market. The word "market" as it's used here does NOT mean "sell" – it means simply to expose your product or service to enough people or to recruit others to do it for you.
Commit today to learn how to most effectively market your Follow Our Lead team business. Most people fail in network marketing because they don't know how to market. Look at the letters you get in the mail each day trying to get you involved in their opportunity. Have you noticed how amateurish many of them are?
