I’m sure that you have heard before that 95% of network marketers FAIL in their online business. I can pretty much guarantee that a lack of long term CONSISTENCY is the reason for their failure. Even after about 2 years of being in the online marketing game I still have problems with keeping up with daily blog posts and connecting with my leads. One thing that I have found that helps me out with motivation to stay strong is having my friends remind me. Every day I get a phone call from someone asking me to chill, they almost always ask me – Have you put out a blog post yet? Hahah well the past couple of days I have been pretty busy, and I can honestly say that making more money is NOT my top priority. For most people out there going through the effort of starting an online business however, money IS indeed a top priority. So, with that being said, I just wanted to reassure you all that being CONSISTENT can truly make all of the difference.
By adding a new post and connecting with your leads every day, it shows the people who are looking at your page and checking up on your progress that you are DEDICATED to successfully growing your business. People don’t want to join anything that you are involved in unless you prove to them that you are dedicated to their success.
Being consistent does not just mean adding a new post or talking to a couple of people each day. A major part of being a success in the online network marketing community is increasing the value that you bring to the market. You have got to set aside some time AT LEAST every other day to either review or watch a new training video. Not necessarily for you to implement it, but if one of your leads asks you a question you are going to be able to answer it. Not only will you know more material to help your leads, but it will also increase your confidence 10 fold – which can make all the difference when it comes to signing up a new lead.
If you do not like watching videos, or even if you are ignorant to learning new marketing strategies, definitely take the time to read and comment on other blogs. Use the ‘reader’ option on your WordPress to find new material to read, even if it does not involve marketing. You are going to want to read and make a positive comment on at least 5 blogs per day. This will get you extra exposure, more backlinks, and more connections to those people who are looking for the content that you are posting.
Try adding a few of the pages named ‘motivational quotes’ and other relevant pages on Facebook. If you do not already have a Facebook page, I strongly recommend getting one if only just to get motivation and provide an easily accessible place to connect with leads. Facebook is a very powerful tool that you are going to want to implement ASAP. If you need help, here is a free video training to help get you set up the right way.
Another way to stay consistent with your marketing strategies is to keep yourself physically fit. By reading and watching videos, you keep your mind healthy and progressive, but you would be surprised how much an unhealthy body can impact your brain. Eat a nice healthy breakfast every morning and go for a jog. Getting even just a 20 minute workout in when you wake up will get your blood pumping and keep you awake and ambitious during the day. Just give it a shot and I promise you will not regret it – I mean really, do you think physical activity could hurt you?
Get a good night sleep! Tests have proven that sleep is actually just as important, if not more important than exercise. YOU NEED BOTH! Also by reducing the amount of artificial light you take in at night makes a huge impact on your mental health. By sitting in the light at night time, you are actually increasing your chances of being pulled down by depression. Keep the TV off at night and make sure you get to sleep at a decent hour. You’ll feel the difference and you will LOVE IT! =D
The bottom line here is do whatever it is that you need to do in order to be consistently growing your business. Keep in mind that you really will not see much traffic, maybe 10-20 people per day, until you hit about 60 blog posts. DO NOT GIVE UP! Join a community like MLSP if you need some extra motivation, but don’t just quit. The life you deserve to live is honestly right around the corner, and it is yours for the taking! This stuff is EASY as long as you have to motivation to be consistent. Stick with it, and you will live a life beyond your wildest dreams. Take care my friends!
