Our industry – network marketing, is very
familiar with the word “leverage.” To leverage is use something to maximum
advantage. When we talk of leverage, most network marketers think of recruiting
some more people into their teams. We’ve always thought of leverage in the
aspect of multiplying ourselves through our downlines. That’s a great way, but exploding
your business with leverage is not only with the downlines. In this post, I
hope to help those who aren’t taking their business to the moon to do so.
MORE THAN JUST DOWNLINES
To be clear, I am not discounting the fact
we attain hugely with leverage in network marketing though our downlines. This
is true, and will always be. The question I pose today concerns mainly the
situations faced by new distributors. Or those whose downlines have gone into
the witness protection program. And this is for lots of team leaders out there.
Should we tell these struggling network marketers they can’t have leverage
working for them? That would be wrong. It’s for this purpose that I made this post.
Leverage is using what you have to maximum
advantage. Compared to other industries, network marketing is full of support
and training that any ordinary person may need to excel in the profession. This
training may not have been made by your company or upline, but it can be beneficial
to you. Have you heard the statement “follow the system?” What of “attend all
the meetings and events?” These are statements inviting you to apply leverage.
Allow someone else to help you succeed in this business by doing for you
something; and you get paid on their effort.
GETTING PAID ON OTHERS’ EFFORT
That’s the reason why teamwork is vital in
network marketing. The purpose is to reach a place where others do something
and you get paid for their effort. Your upline closes your prospects for you;
and you get paid. One of the company trainers makes your team stronger so they
attain more; and you get paid. A business partner in another team shares a
product testimony that makes your own team and customers buy more of that
product; and you get paid again. On whose effort? It’s the effort of others
that you are getting paid. They don’t have to directly be in your team for you
to get paid on their effort.
In simpler terms, you’ve got to use the
different talents of everyone you have access to for maximum advantage for yourself.
Your upline can gain from your effort; and you too can gain from his effort. Here
is the reason as to why you must look for an upline that will support you.
Also, it’s for this reason that you need to work with a company whose management
will help you grow. The secret lies in leverage. How much will the others be
willing to do for you so you get paid? Anyone who grasps this concept will make
it huge in our industry. We don’t get paid on only our effort. If that was the
case, there wouldn’t be many millionaires in network marketing.
Exploding your business with leverage is
about applying teamwork to attain the impossible. You must increase your circle
to include more valuable people for you to ascend to the life of your dreams. I
know some of you have the excuse of no one in your company coming out to help
you. So what? I’ve been in your shoes before. You have to make a decision that
you will make it anyway. In baseball, there is no crying. Leverage is about you
profiting from the work of even the leaders in other companies. You can use
their training manuals. Read their books. In the times we live, there isn’t any
way that is better than network marketing. All you need to make it to the moon
is to use to maximum advantage what is already available.
