MLM Start Up Tips

MLM start up

Want to know the best MLM start up tips? It can be overwhelming when you first start out in an MLM… so many things to do, so much hope, so much work…

But let’s simplify things for you.

First off, know that being successful at anything – including network marketing – takes work.

Granted, some products and services are easier to sell than others, but what’s more important is that you believe in what you’re promoting. That belief will radiate from you when speaking to others. It’ll show all over your face. 🙂

SIDEBAR: I love the network marketing industry as a whole. The products are nearly always very high quality, and it provides an income for those with the initiative and gumption to work hard.

So assuming you’ve signed up for an MLM that you like, let’s discuss the steps you need to get your business off and running…


Step One

The first and most important thing is this: you and only you are responsible for your success or failure.

That’s right.

You may or may not even believe me, but think of it:

You’re responsible for action. You’re responsible for seeing you get good advice and training. If you don’t get the kind of advice and training you really want or need, then you’re responsible for getting something that resonates better with you.

Because once you realize that the responsibility for success lies within your control, everything changes.

For the better.

You take the bull by the horns. You “own” your growth path and your success.

An MLM start up is a lot of work. And once you realize that work and success is largely up to you, the faster you’ll grow and develop as a network marketer.

Because mindset makes all the difference.


Step Two

Another huge, huge key to success is: get yourself a mentor and accountability partner. This person could be your upline (preferably), or a teammate, but regardless, you need someone to fill this vital role.

Because we are social creatures, the synergy created by several minds all set to a single task is nothing short of magical. Grab hold of that magic!

Furthermore, having an accountability partner helps you to stay focused, provides a sounding board for new ideas, and can help share the workload on special projects.

In short, everybody wins.


Next Steps in an MLM Start Up

Once you have these first two keys in place and working, then it’s time to bring in resources, and learn and/or refine new skills.

One popular resource to share with you is this: How to avoid coming off as pushy in your MLM start up.
