If you’ve been in the network marketing industry for any length of time, you no doubt have heard from potential prospects, and even from those who have already joined your team, that they just don’t have time time to build a business. Sigh. I can’t even count how many times I’ve heard this from people.
My answer to those of you who are saying “I don’t have the time to put into a building a business. I already have a full time job and three kids to run around to all their extra-curricular activities”. Sound familiar? Either you’ve said it, or someone has said it to you. So, what’s the big secret to becoming a top earner in network marketing if you have multiple children and 1 or more jobs? The secret is……WAIT FOR IT……there is no secret.
What if I told you that you can build a super successful MLM business in just 15-30 minutes a day? You’d probably call me a crazy person. But, it’s absolutely true. And here’s how:
1. Use social media to your advantage
I’m going to guess that everybody and their dog is on Facebook, or some sort of social media platform, on a daily basis. You literally have access to thousands of people while you’re sitting on the couch in your sweatpants cuddling your dog drinking a glass of wine. You don’t even have to leave your house to build your business.
2. The busier you are, the more successful you will be
Ummm, what? Yes! It’s been shown that busy people get things done. They may be running around like a chicken with their head cut off 10 hours of every day, but you can bet they are going to fit in 15 minutes on social media to send 5 messages to people about their product, service or opportunity. One message can literally take 10-30 seconds to type up and send. Imagine if you send 5 messages 7 days a week, you’ve just introduced 35 people to what you’re doing without having to have a home party or attend one of those hotel presentation snorefests.
3. Plan your attack
On Sunday, look at your schedule for the week. Where can you block off a bit of time to get on social media to reach out to 5 people and do some follow ups from previous connections? Maybe it’s from 12-12:30 during your lunch break. Or from 6:30-7:00 while watching your son’s soccer game. Or maybe it’s from 7:45-8:15 a.m. before you head to work while drinking your morning coffee. If you plan the time in advance, and make these appointments with yourself to build your business, you’re more likely to actually do it.
Does this make sense? How would you feel if you could actually build a successful MLM business in the nooks and crannies of your day and never have to miss out on your kids events, drive across town to a stupid meeting or have strangers in your house when you haven’t had time to clean it? Pretty damn good, I would say!
