Response:Response By: sellmoreinventory.com
The biggest challenge I had in network marketing was going against the grain of my personality and forcing myself to speak to random people about my business. I was forcing myself to be like a very small portion of the population that has the innate ability to strike up a conversation with anyone. I was much more shy and once I started learning the correct way to market online, my business has really taken off. This was because I didn't have to market to strangers anymore or worry about inserting my business in every conversation I had with people. I was free to let people come to me through my marketing and the people who come to me now are already interested in what I have to offer.
I have time to work with people who are serious about changing their lifestyles. Contact me through my blog at http://GretchenParks.com anytime for a personal call from me.

I’m not a car guy. I have friends who know everything about cars. They see a car and say, “that a Camry. There’s a Chevy. What a great looking Sable.” (Actually, I can’t imagine anyone saying that.) I, on the other hand, can tell it’s a car, but not what type unless I’m run over and the emblem is impressed into my forehead.
If you wanted to work in the automobile industry, you would need to work on your car knowledge. The same is true for your network marketing business, you must know these mlm success tips if you want to be successful in this industry. Your success and growth is not totally dependent on you, but on your team. This is why it is important that you can offer your highly motivated team these simple, easy to use tips that can be duplicated.
These MLM tips will solidify you as an expert and increase your downline in the next 30 days if you follow them closely.
If you don’t have the right mindset from the beginning, statistics confirm that you will shut down in the next 63 days. Everyone starts out with hopes and dreams to create a better future and most end up frustrated and ready to quit when things don’t go the way they thought. You must decide that failure is not an option and that you will not quit. My brother in law is a doctor. It took him about 9 years and over $200,000 in education to get to where he is now. With that much invested, I can assure you that he has no intention of quitting. The same should be true for you. When you resolve that you will not quit, it’s not a matter of if you are going to succeed, but when.
When you sign up with a particular company, you have to put your blinders on and focus on building that company no matter what anyone else says. Don’t be a serial entrepreneur and jump from company to company in hopes of a better opportunity. Go back to why you joined in the first place. If you believe this company is positioned for success, then you must maintain your focus. Pursue one company until you’ve gained the results you are looking for.
If you want to build your business online, you must learn the methods that suit you best. If you want to PPC advertising, become a master at it. If you want to do article marketing, become a master at creating compelling content. If you interested in free strategies, learn how to master it. The bottom line is, get educated.
There are 3 types of individuals you are looking for in network marketing.
Ex-network marketers, current network marketers, people seeking network marketing. Those should be the only people you recruit into your business. Anyone else is a waste of your time. The way you accomplish recruiting these people is found in the system you use.
These MLM tips, if embraced, will transform your business in the next 30 days. If you want to learn exactly how to succeed from A-Z, visit Ben DeWitt’s blog for more MLM success tips.

Allow me to offer a couple:
1) I recently purchased 2 amazing deals at a charity media auction - 1) a 10 page website buildout from a local superstar web design company for only $600! worth $2300. Unbelievably no one has bought this from me yet - and i'm not even marking it up, offering it for exactly what I paid for it! 2) a full color, full page ad in a large and popular physicians publication that goes out to over 19,000 Florida doctors offices - for only $900 - again, what I paid for it ($3600 value). BOTH are still available and are completely legit. Why haven't they sold? it's a mystery.
2) Working with vendors/consultants who don't take the same degree of pride their work - but were very affordable and I settled with them being "ok" and "pretty good". NOT a good reflection on me, and a true example of needing to make an investment in trained, committed talented professionals.
3) Bootstrapping my start up company was a good choice for me in so many ways, but I know that I would be ahead in sales if I had invested in some software/hardware and eucational opportunities up front. Look forward to hearing yours!

Response:Response By: 8-PAC Small Business Discussion Group
My biggest challenge was in the beginning, about 13 years ago. There were three simultaneous issues.
1. I had never worked for myself
2. I was suddenly being offered Creative Director positions on Madison Ave. (a long time goal)
3. I was being offered freelance work for large agencies
I decided that I wanted to explore being in business for myself and take the risks associated with that decision -- financial and other issues. So I turned down the Creative Director positions, one of the most difficult things I ever had to do (turning away the achievement of one dream to purse the uncertainty of another). I also did not want to work for other agencies, but wanted to work directly with clients. That meant less immediate financial gratification and holding out for a longer time until I got those clients. They came. I never looked back. It was the best decision I ever made.

Most people don't like or want to employ consultants, with good reason. Many don't add much to the businesses they work with and are interested only in their daily fee being paid.
I set up my business four years ago to deliver high quality strategic advice to businesses who are so busy running their operation that they don't always have time to plan ahead or to understand their unique strengths.
My biggest challenge was (and is) to prove that my business is different from the thousands of other consultant knocking on business owners' doors. I do this by taking a 'blue ocean' approach to my own business that makes it fundamentally different (and I think better) to my competitors. I make a virtue of the fact that I employ experienced businesspeople rather than MBA's and that I sometimes emphasise common sense over analytics.
If other advisers had taken this approach perhaps our banks/blue chips wouldn't be in the position they are now.

My biggest challenge in building my business has been learning to let go and delegate. It's been a rough road for me. I knew in my head that getting fantastic support around me would help grow my business, but it was so scary to actually let my team take over the day to day tasks.
I have found the key is to surround myself with smart, dynamic, like-minded people, who are really good at what they do.

Resources, Resources and Resources.
The first resource is cash, without which nothing happens. Start small, sell little things to fund the bigger things, then drop the little things.
The second resource is time, there is no limit to the amount of time required to build a business. Just focus. I realised that 80% of my time was doing things that were not building the business, these are the time wasters and dry gullies we need to identify early. Once you get this sorted, eliminating 80% now gives you now 5 times as much time to focus.
The third resource is skills, finding people who can and do what they say they can. There is only one way to get this right, you must be the expert and only delegate what you can do best yourself. That way, you can quickly recognise the quality of other peoples inputs. Spend your own time doing the things you aren't yet good at, learn them well, then delegate those tasks, and so on.

Consistently marketing repeatedly.
It is hard to continue to do something over and over and not get responses or results for weeks, months, or even a year.
I know folks need to feel familiar with a person or company before they buy.
They may need to interact with you a total of 10 times before they decide to buy.
So I have learned to keep plugging away at finding new customers and make certain I keep my return customers happy.

1. The "fear" factor, until I realized that I can truly help people and businesses - that my service fills a great void in the North American landscape. My desire to be a help has more than compensated for the "fear" that we all experience. Additionally, my clients readily recognize my desire to help, too, making the job much easier.
2. Learning that you can't say the right thing to the wrong client, you can't say the wrong thing to the right client. We've learned to present our service and let it do the talking. A client in need of our service will recognize it immediately and sign up. For every "no", I am paid an average of $500+ in commissions. That realization is a real motivator!

Our biggest challenge has been getting ourselves in front of the recruitment consultants we are trying to help. Our ideal situation would be to go into any large agency, ask for a list of top producers and invite them all to a seminar on how easy it is to set up and run your own recruitment agency... but no agency would let us through the door knowing that they would lose all their top staff!
Our solution is to get our name known in the recruitment industry... little comments, open discussions, using Facebook and LinkedIn... but mainly talking to as many different people as possible and telling them what we do. It has been slow starting with lots of preparation and planning but we are starting to notice the phone ringing into our office instead of out of it... But the main thing is for us not to take our eye off the ball for a second and become complacent... or someone else will come into the market place and business will be lost as easily as it is won!
