Well, becoming a network marketer is very easy! You just have to make people join your team. If I ask you how you are going to do it, what will you answer? I think, this time it does not look as easy as it seemed before. Actually, anyone can be a network marketer even the cleaner or janitor; but not everyone can show impressive performance in network marketing beyond their own circles of friends and family until and unless they have the passion, endurance, appropriate selling instinct and belief in their success. Most network marketers step in this industry being amazed by the success of others. People who have been successful in the industry have gone through a lot of hardships. However, this success can also be yours if you know the other side of the coin.
The key problem is, most network marketers out there are not sure of what they are marketing, to whom they are marketing and how they are marketing. Clear idea about these stuffs makes the real difference between successful and failing network marketing. You should know that your company, products or plans are of least interest in network marketing. It is you who is the brand. You have to market yourself. People are likely to join individuals whom they know, trust and like. Keep it in mind that people out there are searching a system or leader who is trustworthy and help them achieve their financial objectives.
Trends have revealed that most of the high earning network marketers have some distinctive traits. You may already possess some of them, but even if you don’t, the good news is that all of them are obtainable with training, and to attain success you need to do more than just pay lip service to these areas, because they are keys to either doing badly or earning a high salary.
How to Speak So People Listen
A successful network marketer knows how to speak so people listen. If you don’t know how to talk, you’ll never be able to reach your clients. You must speak in a way that matches your client. If you speak fast and your client speaks slowly, they will not pay attention; similarly, if you speak slowly and they are fast, they will switch off and not hear your words. Pay attention to your body language, because people use visual clues to give meaning to your words. Do not mumble, speak understandably and loud enough to be heard without yelling or raising your voice too much.
The tone and how you change your words give your speech a more interesting slant that grabs attention. Emphasize some words, raise and lower your voice, so that your speech pattern varies. Listen and respond to what has been said to you, and maintain eye contact, particularly if you are in a one to one meeting.
Try to avoid filler words such as um and ah. They sound as if you are not confident, and if you are not confident in what are you are saying, then you will not get people to listen to you. Try to project enthusiasm and energy when you speak, but take a lot of breaks, let people digest what you have said and give them time to respond, do not over talk. Personalize your words; make them relevant to the person or people you are addressing specifically, not more generally to any old person in the street.
The major problem for any person willing to become a network marketer is that communication skills are a pivotal area; if you do not possess the speaking and listening skills to connect your audience, you will not sell your services. If your skills are not yet up to scratch, take courses and study anyone who you find interesting to listen to, and analyze why you are willing to listen to them.
