There are some common mistakes to avoid when building your network marketing opportunity. If you can learn from the mistakes of others instead of having to go through it yourself, you can decrease your learning curve. Just a few simple course corrections can set you on the path to success instead of failure and you will be able to achieve your goals and dreams.
- Chasing Prospects
- Trying to Convince People
- Being Rude
One of the worst things you can do for your network marketing business is to chase prospects and try to convince them that your product or opportunity is a good idea for them. While it could be a good idea for them, the timing could be off, or they just might not see it the same way that you do. Instead of chasing people, you should be sifting and sorting. Looking for people that are looking for what you have and then give it to them. If you spend less of your time convincing and chasing, and more of your time finding people that need what you have, you are going to be much happier.
Oftentimes, as a defense mechanism, people become rude and mean when their would-be customers or business partners turn them down. The is a very short sighted approach and should be avoided at all costs. It is important to respect people's choices and always keep it on a positive note with them. Being rude to someone will ruin the relationship and any opportunities that you may have with this person in the future.
Instead of chasing people, trying to convince them and being rude to them, build relationships, educate people and show them kindness. You will build a much better network marketing business, and you will create a much more fulfilling life. Do not get upset if your success does not happen overnight. Anything that is worth having is worth working for until such time that it comes to pass.
