If you do not want to fail in your MLM opportunity there is certain knowledge and skills that you need to have. Have you ever read an ad that said you’d make more money in a week than you’d made in your entire life.

And that feeling pulled you irresistibly toward your dreams. It was an awesome feeling!  Finally you plunged—bought into the program, believing you’ve found the best thing since electricity was invented!

 And you’ve sacrificed a lot to see the profits you were promised, foregoing time with family, spending money out of family budget, working odd hours. Yes, you methodically worked the business plan as it was laid out. Yet, you couldn’t see any detectable sign of success. And now you’re seriously considering quitting.

If the above scenario describes your experience in network marketing, take heart. Fortunately you are in the majority, if that’s any comfort. Latest figures reveal that each week, some 175,000 persons start one form of MLM or the other. If you got your math right, it translates to 9 million-plus new MLM businesses per year.

 Meanwhile only about 5% of these, a tiny minority, will succeed with their business. The vast majority, about 95%, will fail! Reminds me of the Great Preacher’s words: “Many are called, but few are chosen” (Jesus Christ in the Holy Bible).

Fortunately nobody is destined to belong in the majority class; nobody is destined to fail. It’s all in the way we approach this activity called network marketing. Here are 6 clues on how NOT to fail in your MLM.

 It Takes Time: Sorry if that breaks your heart. Truth is, unless you win a lottery or something, you are never going to make a million dollars overnight. It takes time to create enduring wealth. And if any internet ads are telling you anything different, just move on!

Beware Of Scams: Your success in MLM begins with choosing a credible company to join. Unfortunately most “opportunities” out there are outright scams—they’re simply there to rip us off! So you’d better be careful with your credit card. Before deciding to join a company, research it—on Google, YouTube, Wikipedia, etc. Don’t be shy to ask someone what they know about the company. Ensure there are ways to reach the company on phone and through email. Call them to make enquiries and voice your concerns. And don’t join until you have a good feeling about the company its leaders. 

Stay Focused: A lack of focus is another reason many marketers fail. When you’re just starting out, remain with one MLM Company, and only one company (provided you’ve digested point 2 above). Jumping from one company to another will ensure you won’t ever get off the ground—you’ll keep starting over many times. Forget all the ads that keep telling you about the next best thing. It’s the same as what you have on your hands! So stay focused, stay committed, and fully work the plan you’ve got

Accept Responsibility: It’s like learning to drive a car. No amount of information on paper will prevent you from making a few rookie mistakes the moment you eventually get behind the wheel.

 Are you going to accept those mistakes and learn from them, or are you going to blame your driving teacher? So it goes with network marketing. Some of the most successful ones are those who take responsibility for both their failures and successes. After all you answer only to yourself here, it’s your business. So it’s up to you to make it work and take all the credits.

Have a Mentor: There are those who’ve been doing this before you. You need the successful and honest ones among them to help you out. In most network marketing companies, you’re often sponsored by someone. Observe carefully how your mentor or leader is faring in the business.

 If he sucks, then how can he help you to succeed? But if he is obviously succeeding with the business, you’d better find out how he does it. Don’t be shy to ask questions and seek clarifications.

 Explore the Power of The Internet: This is actually more like a marketing strategy. But it is good to quickly mention it here, because a major reason many fail in their MLM is that they go about marketing as if this is the late 70’s.

Old-school marketing methods won’t take you far in today’s MLM—harassing friends, relatives, and virtually anything that has breath and lives near you! It doesn’t work that way anymore. Remember too, if these ones do join, remembering what it took you to get them will paralyze their marketing drive. So it’s a dead end approach to marketing. Learn the new techniques of marketing your MLM online.

The 6 points above are tested and trusted guidelines or ‘laws,’ which, if carefully followed, will ensure you won’t fail in your MLM business. It goes without say that you’ll have to persevere since this is not a get-rich-quick activity. Yes, only 5% of new entrants into MLM may succeed, but that number can surely accommodate you.
