Today’s network marketer has so many ways with which to conduct their business.
Regardless of which methods you choose to build your network marketing business, it’s about providing enormous value, both online and offline.
Most likely, you’ve got a lot of competition. There are thousands of other distributors in your company all trying to be the best network marketer.
So, you can either stand out from the crowd by providing value, leadership and vision, or get drowned in a sea of mediocrity.
If you’ve been at this for awhile, you already know the consequences of not getting it right means you’ll earn a whopping $0.00 and generate no income at all.
These types of results are the number one reason why so many network marketers give up.
You can learn everything you need to know about how to be the best network marketer. But if you are not taking action, well, you know the rest.
In this article, I have three crucial tips for you to build a successful network marketing business and be a great network marketer.
1 – Practice What Others Teach
I don’t know any network marketers who knew what to do when they started their business.
Find mentors that resonate with you, learn from them and emulate what they do.
“There are no bad business or investment opportunities. What we have are bad entrepreneurs and investors.” – Robert Kiyosaki
I’ve seen many people follow big-name leaders in network marketing, but focus on the wrong things.
For example, do you look at these successful network marketers and think, “I wish I had that income” or “Wow, they get to do whatever they want, I wish I could.”
Fawning over network marketers who are highly successful is the incorrect thought process if you want to be the best network marketer.
For example, an approach that can lead to success is to find out what are the daily habits of this successful network marketer and then emulate them.
2 – Building Network Marketing Online the Right Way
You heard that you can build a successful MLM business online, right?
Here’s an important tip that I use in my business. If you are new to the network marketing business, learn to build your business the traditional way first.
Get to the first level in your company and then start building online.
What? Why would you do that?
Here’s an example: what would happen if you didn’t understand the foundation skills of network marketing? Whether you find people online or offline, how would you move forward with these people?
Even if you build your network marketing business online, you still have to talk to people on the phone (or some other method.)
Learning to be the best network marketer means honing those foundational skills which you can then use both online and offline.
In my MLM business, the most successful people are those who learned the basics of the business first, and then started building online. I don’t teach them the online component until my team understands the offline component.
If not, how would you know exactly what you are building?
3 – Create a Vision for Your Life and Help Others See theirs
Have you seen those posts in your Facebook newsfeed?
“Join today and get a free kit.”
“I’m looking for 10 people to join my team.”
“The Internet’s Fastest, Easiest And Laziest ‘Plug-And-Play’ System For Making Immediate Money Online”
These type of posts tell me nothing about a person’s vision for their life or if they even know how to help me realize a vision for my own.
Create a powerful vision for your own life. That vision will pull you forward.
Your conversation with others should be about the vision for their life. You can help empower them to make their vision a reality.
It’s not really so much about your company products or the pay plan. For example, your MLM company is simply the vehicle to connect your life to your vision.
That’s what you should be focused on! Once you help others see their own vision, you will be on your way to becoming the best network marketer you can be.
By making a commitment to your life’s vision and setting goals, you can be a successful network marketer.
Like any business, it requires dedication and the deep desire to make it happen.
With so little overhead, network marketing is a business like no other due to the unlimited earning potential.
You have the power to create life on your terms – a life of options and promise. Reach out if you’d like to connect.

Creating and having clarity of your vision is such a powerful factor.
Leaders in any type of business including MLM who can successfully share their vision with their team are always the ones whose success other people envy.
I have seen so many times examples of when team members really “buy into” a shared vision where the results can be simply amazing.
It takes great communication skills to achieve this as well as leaders having both the strength of character and a hefty dose of self belief.
Thanks for sharing your expertise Lisa – awesome post.

Thanks for stopping by… always enjoy your comment contributions!
We are of the same mind on this one. It’s really all about the vision and has little to do with the actual company or products. With a strong belief in the vision and where you are going, that’s what pushes you out of your comfort zone and pulls you towards what you really want in life.
All the best to you!
Thanks once more Lisa.
Please share pointers of how one can write Facebook status that show vision.

Thanks for asking! Here’s what I do on Facebook. I just post about my lifestyle…the stuff that’s happening in my life. My lifestyle is my vision. I always get messages from people asking what I do to enable me to live my lifestyle of health and freedom 🙂 Hope that helps.
Have an amazing day!
Thanks.I do not have much of a lifestyle as yet because Im starting out.But will sure take this advice with me to where Im going with my MLM business.Thanks Lisa.
Lisa J says
Welcome back! You do have a lifestyle…it’s how you live your life. For example, in my life I live a healthy lifestyle. So that is something I post about that inspires others to do the same. I’m sure you have lots of positive and inspiring things you do in your life 🙂
Hi Lisa. I agree with you on building and sharing your vision to build your network marketing business. I disagree with you about waiting to get online though. Maybe it depends on your company’s compensation plan. With the company that I am with, retail sales to outside customers is the only way for new people to make money, and it is through those retail sales that they will move up the first level, so it makes sense for them to get online and learn how to market the products right away. Once they know how to make money, then they can learn how to recruit new people and teach them to do the same thing. Like I said, it probably depends on your company’s compensation plan.

It is very much true that no one is born with the skills to become a successful network marketer. So it is very much essential to find the right mentor to achieve success in this business (or for that matter any business).
Network marketing is the booming business for its irresistible earning potential. But it is indeed a hard nut to decide on the strategies which work best for an individual business and work on them with utmost dedication.
Loved all your tips and the linked articles. Thanks for sharing. Take care and have a great day 🙂
