Network marketing is not easy, not everyone can have huge success in an MLM company.
So many people are drawn to online marketing because it's one of the only business models where any person with very little technical skill and a small investment, can turn around and make a huge profit.
From a stay at home mom to a construction worker with no computer skills.
Anyone can become a skilled network marketer but there are certain traits a person must have or develop to become a successful network marketer.
These are skills you aren't born with, they are things you acquire through experience and through years of personal development.
The right frame of mind First off, you have to be in the right mindset.
I think one must be in a spot in their lives where they have a genuine desire to make a change.
Maybe you find yourself stuck at a dead end job or you have no time to spend with your family, you're on shift work and it's taking a toll on your health or you may have found yourself laid off from work and at a loss for how you will put that next meal on the table.
Things happen in our lives that make us decide, THIS IS IT, I need to make a change TODAY.
When that happens you develop that desire...
What is your motivator? Once you have that desire you have a why.
You know exactly why you are making a change.
This is what will keep you motivated to continue.
The why is usually a very emotional reason and emotion is a HUGE motivator! Personal development - are you trainable? A high attrition rate in any marketing company isn't because a company is a scam or not profitable.
It is usually due to a lack of proper training.
Do you have the skills to be trained? Now that may seem like a silly question, who doesn't have the skills to be trained? Some people are what I call a "know it all".
They already think they know everything, so they don't take advice well.
If a very successful businessmen told you, you need to do this to succeed, would you do it? Or would you roll your eyes and do your own thing? Even if you are trainable, does the company have proper training for you? Make sure they do, make sure you can learn from your up line or directly from a company, that has training made available to you from experienced leaders.
Are you a leader or a follower? This is not a requirement to become successful but leadership is a characteristic most successful network marketers have.
The number one skill most good leaders have is the desire to learn.
They thrive on learning something new on a regular basis.
Now maybe you can't see yourself as a leader, you see yourself more as a follower.
That's all right too.
The great thing about network marketing is that, even followers can succeed if they align themselves with good leaders.
I would suggest you insure that you are part of a team that has good leaders.
Find people in your team who are skilled leaders and follow their leadership.
Learn and grow.
Maybe you'll even surprise yourself and become a leader yourself! Now these are just a few characteristics I think someone needs for Network Marketing success but it's not all about having these characteristics.
Taking action If you aren't prepared to take action, to work hard, learn, develop and grow.
You'll find yourself left behind while others rise and shine.
