In the previous post, I mentioned that some people may fall into the ego trip and attempt to re-invent the wheel. The reality is — network marketing has been around for decades!
While a new distributor can try to figure out what is the best way to succeed, leveraging on the efforts of pioneers and leaders can help to fast track success!
Why going all the way to your upline, upline’s upline, etc?
There are a lot of great strategies that have been tested out and perfected by mlm leaders. The upline’s role is to be a great mentor. Unfortunately, your immediate upline may not have joined the company from the ‘business door’. For example, you bumped into the business because you and your sponsor both loved the efficacy of the products. It is crucial that you have to go up and up the sponsor line to reach such a mentor. You can then be assured to be on a path that can lead to results!
A mentor knows thing that you may not know. He/she is able to see your greatness you may not have yet discovered. By collaborating with you to design a realistic business plan, a good mentor can hold you accountable and guide you to do the most important things in order for you to reach your goal. You can be assured that there is the least distraction during your Success Journey.
Why a well-researched Simple Duplicatable System?
I am going to challenge the very idea of simply following the mentor’s strategies. This may appear to be paradoxical but please read on!
Some mentors succeeded in their business using their system some 10 or even 20 years ago. It would be naïve to assume that simply following their system would be the best choice of systems. It does not take a genius to understand that in this date and age, online marketing has huge potential. Yes, you can choose to follow whatever worked and succeed the traditional way but you can also choose to learn the more innovative ways.
This is why researching for the best online system available is part of the game for doing online network marketing well.
I am blessed to have a mentor who is continuously ‘growing with time’. Our existing simple system is being modified to fully embrace the new tools available.
To conclude, Mentoring & Simple Systems are crucial for your mlm success. Go for it!
