Duplication In Network Marketing

Why do many network marketers tie duplication in network marketing to some system that you need to purchase along with your downline?

Is this truly duplication or just using the same tools thousands of others are as well? No doubt there are plenty of systems to choose from so that you can appear different from everyone else…

And, there are many that this style of marketing appeals too. Mainly those that are a little on the lazy side, those that fear rejection, yet still want to have a business so long as they don’t have to sell anything.

Yet, we wonder still why so many fail in network marketing today and will continue to do so. I have a comment that was submitted on one of my posts that relates to a system…

Whoever left the comment was a coward. They left it as anonymous and with a bogus email. I guess mine and others comments proved beyond a shadow of doubt that the system was not duplicatable in the long run.

Duplication in Network Marketing is finding others that will go out and prospect, find customers and grow a business with very little effort on your part.

Duplication is not seeing how far I can milk every dime from my downlines pocket by tying them into system after system, and in some cases multiple opportunities.

Duplication is not chasing down other network marketers to see if they are ready to join your business. Yet, this is the method that most practice because they believe it is much easier…

While on the surface it maybe much easier for experienced network marketers, for the newbie it is definitely not duplicatable.

So we wonder why just about every network marketing company out there advises you to generate a list of people you know…

Oh, I can hear the new school networkers screaming now. Yet, I wrote a post last month that pointed out that the top two network marketing companies used old school methods almost exclusively.

Maybe, just maybe those methods have proven to be duplicatable for those who choose to learn how to qualify their warm market.

If you’re looking to create duplication with your network marketing downline begin by teaching them how to be unique and original. Not just another carbon copy network marketer.

    It’s not the ‘system’ and it’s not ‘nickel and diming’ your prospect to death either.

    Yes, systems work. But regardless, the business owner has their fair share to do too.

    At the end of the day, Pratos’ Principle (80/20 Rule) will always apply.

    Cheers to the good post and some real insight.

    Training, training, training! Yes, Ray is correct, there are a lot of people who are looking for the easy way out of having to actually talk to prospects by using some magic system. A lot of money is wasted by people looking for the shortcuts that will somehow grow their business without them actually having to learn to be proficient in basic sales skills; find prospects, talking to prospects, and recruiting prospects into your business. Those are part of what you have to master to become successful in this industry. The other part is training your team to be proficient in those skills too = “Duplication”

    True duplication is having high quality training that will iimprove your teams sales skills. Sorry folks, there are no shortcuts, magic systems that will do the work for you, etc. You will have to find prospects, talk to those prospects, and recruit and train some of those prospects to do the same thing. Yes, and being unique and original will help you attract people that are looking for something genuine in this world of hype our industry has created. Be original, learn basic sales skills, be knowledgeable about your company and products, get some confidence and go for it!

    All the best to your success,
