Consistency and Persistence in Your Home Business
If you’re looking to be successful in your MLM / Network Marketing / Affiliate Marketing home business, it’s going to take consistency and persistence.
Did you start your business and make a few phone calls or send a couple of postcards, or private messages on Facebook, before deciding it’s not going to work?
Well, that’s not enough to get your business off the ground!
No matter what product you represent, ultimately we are in the relationship business.
Relationships take time to develop.
It won’t happen overnight and will, in fact, take consistent and persistent contact.
If you’re in the habit of starting a new business, trying for a little while, giving up, and then moving on to another opportunity, then maybe this business is not for you.
Success comes to those who make the effort again, and again, and again.
It comes to those who aren’t afraid to pick up a phone, meet face to face, or connect month after month with the people in their community.
In fact, Success even comes to some who ARE afraid, who do get nervous but who do it anyway… These people are an inspiration to all of us in a home business today.
If Consistency and Persistence are problems for you, here are a few tips to help out:
Block the time on your calendar –
Without a set time to get to work, chances are it will never happen.
Block the time that you’re going to prospect and connect with others, just like you would a set appointment.
Yes, it’s THAT important!
Change your perspective –
Many people dread prospecting, but prospecting is really nothing more than an opportunity to connect with people.
Change your thoughts about prospecting.
Before getting started, ask yourself, “How am I going to help people today?”
Take the focus totally off of yourself and put it on the person you’re talking to.
Ask questions. Find out how you can help them.
You will find people who tell you NO, but if you’re willing to put yourself out there, you’ll also find people who will tell you YES!
Get Creative –
Find ways to have fun while you’re prospecting.
Step outside of your comfort zone and find ways to make people remember you.
If you’re not the creative type, then find a group of people who are. This can be a local group of fun salespeople, an online conference, or a phone conference.
Just find a way to connect with successful salespeople who can help you find ways to be more memorable.
So bottom line… don’t give up. Keep showing up and taking action, over and over again. Find ways to make yourself better and refine your skills, and then take more action. Over time, with consistency and persistence, you will find the success you’re looking for.
