Network Marketing Success Boiled Down To One Nugget: Be Consistent

Network Marketing can pull you in a lot of different directions. Online marketing, offline marketing, crossover marketing, live meetings, training and on and on. Interview the masters of MLM or hear their stories and you’ll find the consistent theme for network marketing success:

Be Consistent

This is the most neglected concept of sales and home business success. Virtually every sales, MLM or network marketing failure is directly traced to a lack of consistency.

True success is built over time. The sales pages you read and the calls and webinars you attend will always tell you about the guy who was earning six-figures in a few short months. That is one of the biggest sins committed in this industry and the dirty secret that few reveal:

Overnight success usually takes years.

That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be making money along the way and it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be aggressive in setting goals. Just be realistic.

You are much, much better off investing a consistent, predetermined amount of time each day, everyday, in your business than racking up three or four hours once a week. Your presenting skills will benefit and your business will grow faster.

Create a 90-Day Plan. Before long before you begin to patterns, or ratios, emerging that will help you make adjustments. They key is keeping the promise to yourself to work on your business, consistently, every day.

Suggestions for consistent success:

Plan Your Day.

The great Jim Rohn put it simply: Don’t begin your day until it’s finished on paper. There are many time management and priority management systems. Consider using Google Calendar for a tool that is always accessible on-line and is easily shared with other team members.

Planning your day, and budgeting time for your activities will keep you from over-booking yourself or having unrealistic expectations. 80% of your time should be income-generating activity.

Review Your Day

At the end of each day take a look at your plan. Did you do what you told yourself you said you’d do? Do you see tasks that you didn’t finish? Any of those tasks been left undone for two days or more? If you have tasks that aren’t getting done you are either over booking your time or you are ignoring them. This could indicate a time for serious personal reflection. How much do you really want success.

Figuring out what you need to do is not hard. Your up-line can lay it out for you, your company has daily methods of operation suggestions you can use and there is no shortage of suggestions on the internet.

What separates the winners from the losers, the successes from the failures, is consistency. Better to do a bit each day than to deceive yourself into doing a lot all at once.
