Are You A Network Marketing Professional
Today everywhere you look there are many individuals claiming to be network marketing professionals. are they really?
What is a Professional?
1.) A person engaged in a specified activity as one’s main paid occupation rather than as a pastime.
2.) A person having or showing the skill appropriate to a professional person; competent or skillful.
Can you actually become a professional? Absolutely, yet this where it really separates the majority of network marketers.
I can still remember what I was told when I entered my first network marketing company and asked the question, “How do we retail the product?”
The answer I received was not what I expected “Don’t Worry About IT!” Just go out and recruit others, get them on the product! Is this your interpretation of what a professional network marketer is?
If we look at professionals such as Lawyers and Doctors they do not focus first and foremost on recruiting others, they begin by marketing to build a customer base first?
By focusing on generating a customer base first, they will generate the income they’ll later need to grow their practice.
This gives them the capital to expand and bring in partners later, further increasing their business growth and income potential!
So why should network marketing be any different? Yet, the amateurs focus solely on recruiting, generally because they don’t know how to retail their products.
I’m sure you can remember when you first entered this profession and sponsored a few people, did anyone ask you how to retail your company products?
The sooner you can get your new member into a profit margin, they will feel a sense of accomplishment! Showing them how to do this will go a long way towards improving your retention rate!
So What is the key to becoming a Network Marketing Professional?
I touched on it above:
A person having or showing the skill appropriate to a professional person; competent or skillful.
So many practice the art of: Fake It, Till You Make It! Yet this is not the mark of a true professional. If you’ve been reading through my site here you’ll understand the importance I place on marketing education and their is only one source I’ve found, that I trust!
I equate the training they provide to going to a Professional University, not the get your degree out of a box type of training found throughout the internet today. Everything you will learn has been market tested before the information gets to you.
Compare Leadersclub from the outside, look at the members video tour. Then compare them to any of their competitors and you’ll see major differences, if you look close enough you’ll find many of the names you know today, where do you think they received their training from?
With todays economy what it is, a monthly training subscription is less than the price of a tank of gas. Yet the benefits educating yourself can provide a thousand percent return on investment as it has for myself and many others including their competitors which they’ve trained.
With the high cost of travel, many vacation plans have been canceled. What will you do with your summer? Will you sit around wishing you had an extra $500.00 a month of income, or will you take action and become a network marketing professional!
The true secret of giving advice is, after you have honestly given it, to be perfectly indifferent whether it is taken or not, and never persist in trying to set people right.
