Top 5 mistakes online network marketers make when starting out new
- By: Matthews Jeff
If you have been intending on venturing out into the online MLM business, there are mistakes, pitfalls and snares you must be aware of and hence avoid - in order to be successful in this business niche.
1. Concentrating on Multiple Internet Marketing Techniques Simultaneously and Having No Definite Direction
No doubts, there are several strategies that can help you market your business online, all of which have the potential to provide you with the desired outcome. However, it is better to pick one strategy at a time, sharpen your skills on that strategy until you master how it works and start generating result from it. Then, follow up that strategy for some time (especially if you are getting good results from it) before taking up another marketing strategy. In all, ensure that you continue with the strategy that is providing you excellent result.
2. Ignoring the Need for a Mentor or Mastermind Group
Having a mentor or mastermind group is very crucial in your learning curve as an MLM marketer. You will save yourself time, money and a lot of frustration by having a mentor to look up to. Having someone that would give you direction on what works and what does not is a great way to move forward in online network marketing. Someone who is established in the niche and is achieving result should be chosen as a mentor. But, bear in mind that you are the one who takes responsibility of your success or failure – not your sponsor, mentor, upline or team.
3. Being Subscribed to the List of Too Many People
When you do this, it becomes very difficult to concentrate on laying hold of a particular project or strategy; this is because you are being overloaded with the latest, internet secrets (as they are so called). Perhaps you go through this up to five times a day since you are signed up with several lists. It will be difficult to maintain concentration and pursue a given pattern or technique if you get yourself hooked in several people's lists. Choosing just about 3 highly successful people to network with, is a more sensible thing to do.
4. Getting Carried Away by the Earning and Losing Focus on What to Do at the Moment
It is quite easy to become a victim of this snare. When you do this, frustration sets in before you know it, and you may eventually quit too soon! Therefore, take it one step at a time, concentrate on the little things you need to do at the moment, on a daily or weekly basis. Don't be carried away by the imagination of making big money, and lose focus of the little things that would gradually take you to that height.
5. Trying to Pose As a 'Guru'
Don't pretend to be what you are not yet. The little but consistent things you do will gradually walk you to the top, then you can speak on it with boldness. People will naturally respect and seek for your guidance if you earn the 'Guru' status, and not when you fake it.
When you avoid these pitfalls, you will walk yourself quickly to the top of MLM business marketing.
