Building a strong networking team

Updated on August 27, 2012

My Personal Experience With Network Marketing

I've been in Network Marketing over 20 years. Through my experiences working with different companies in the network marketing industry, I learn a few key factors that build a strong team. There is no better way to me to distribute a large amount of product and services through a mass amount of people but through a network of people. It does work if you take in consideration a few factors in building a strong team.

Factor #1 - I was told by leaders in this field that you should go out and recruit any and everybody to build my business fast not realizing that I was putting quantity before quality. It's not all about the quantity of the people you get in; it's the quality of people that builds the foundation of your business so that it can weather through the storms.

You want people in your business that sees your vision and have the integrity to carry out the plan that you would. People come and people go in the networking business. Everybody who came into your business all played a part in building it. Whether they sold a few products or recruited a few people, they had great intention to make it work and their efforts brought your business to where it is today which is something to be grateful for and not be mad about.

Factor #2- You have to feel good about the product or service that you are representing. It’s not all about the opportunity and that you can make a lot of money doing it. You have to have a passion about your product. How are you going to convince others if you don't believe in the product?

I've been in a few networking business that I was excited about the marketing plan and that I could make a lot of money. I was not feeling the products; therefore it did not work out for me. The more you feel good about what you have and doing, enthusiasm grows.

There are occasions when people join your team that are just looking for an opportunity and the products grows on them, and that's ok. You have to ask yourself a few questions when choosing a network marketing business: Do I like the product I'm representing? If so do I use it myself? Do I have a story to tell? If so can I get others to believe in me and my product and services?

Factor #3 - When bringing someone new into your business, remind them that their in business for themselves but not by their selves. Show your support and be willing to help build their business. We as the sponsors forget this at time because we are trying to recruit so many people to fast. In this process some people get left behind, untrained and eventually end up dropping out. When you bring new people into your business network, you have to nurture them like a mother would which will keep them on the right track and protect them like a father should, not allowing them to go astray by outside negativity. Stick with them until you feel they have a sense of what they are doing and always follow-up.

Remember their success is you success to. You get what you want in life by giving the best of who you are.

Everybody on your team is a unique individual bringing different ways to get the same positive result. Don't stay married to the basic plan because there are more than one way to get there.

      I'm one of a few admins on a site and we each have mullipte computers, locations, and browsers we use.From what I can tell, your solution seems like it'll take care of all of that by just inserting your code problem is, where how/ does one use it?Obviously, I'm completely clueless on coding, I'm just a blogger who is tired of seeing 2/3 of our hits come from the admins (not to mention how much that's skewing the other results- notably time on site and bounce rate).Thank you for your help.

      Thanks Marlene! In network marketing you have to believe to achieve. That is way it is important to feel good about what you are representing.

      Hi CatMalone. This is a wonderful hub. I agree that in anything you do, especially in network marketing, you have to have passion for what you are marketing and sharing with others.
