How to Have a Successful First Month in Network Marketing

Now that you have made a decision to take the plunge and get involved in network marketing, you will want to make sure that you have the best possible start. If your goal is to have a successful first month in network marketing, you want to keep the following suggestions in mind.

Make Time in Your Schedule for Your Network Marketing Business

Your network marketing success is not going to happen on its own, and you must block off some time in your schedule on a daily and/or weekly basis to devote to it. Having a specific plan in place and knowing what activities you need to do during each time you blocked off will help you stay focused on your marketing efforts.

Get your Website and Blog Launched

Your online presence is an important part of your business efforts. You want to get your website and your blog up and running right away so that you can use them to establish your prospect list. Once they are in place, they act as your online calling card and is available to Internet users on a 24/7 basis.

Review Your Marketing Materials in Detail

Before you start contacting prospects, you will need to make sure that you are familiar with your marketing materials. It can be tempting to jump right into interacting with prospects, but you need to be prepared to talk about your product and the opportunity as someone who is knowledgeable and comfortable with what he or she is saying.

Conduct a Review After Each Interaction with a Prospect

When you are in your first month in network marketing, you can expect that your prospecting and presentation skills may not be as polished as someone who has been involved in the opportunity for some time. Once you finish speaking to a prospect, take some time to go through the encounter from start to finish in your mind. Make notes of what worked well for you, as well as where you feel things could have gone better.

Make note of the areas where you feel you could improve, and create a strategy for dealing with them in a different way next time, rather than focusing on what you cannot change. That conversation is done and while you can’t change what has already happened, you can learn from it and change your approach for next time.

Get Help and Support from Other Team Members

Don’t be hesitant about asking for help from your fellow team members when you get started. All of them were newbies at one point as well, and they can provide valuable insight and support. If you feel discouraged about your network marketing efforts, share your feeling with your team and ask them for suggestions on how to push through them and stay focused.

These suggestions will help you have a successful first month in network marketing. Following them closely will set the stage for continued success in your new business.

  • Starting your own network marketing business is challenging and rewarding at the same time.  You touched on some key points.  I think most people don’t realize how much time is involved to truly become a success.
    I believe your next biggest tip is don’t do it alone.  Find someone who is doing it and follow their example.  As you mention, everyone was a newbie once.

  • worth a try for sure thank you Darren

  • You mention that you must “Make Time in Your Schedule for Your Network Marketing Business”. With how ADD we all are in this business, it’s hard to find people that will, after making the time in their schedules, actually stick with an opportunity long enough to become successful in it. People tend to jump from opportunity to opportunity way too much in this business when, if they would just focus, could build something great! Just my two cents…

    •  Sooo right! Far too many people jump from opportunity to opportunity.. but sticking with one until you make it successful is so important! Even if it takes you two years to be successful in an opportunity.. it’s better than trying ten opportunities for a year each and not getting anywhere.

      • It’s just funny because people think that doing business online is different from doing business offline. The biggest thing is that usually your overhead is much lower, but the time investment is still there!
