Let’s face it: The bigger your downteam, the more successful you become in this business.

Everyone’s always asking me how they can grow their downteam, so I figured I would take the time to outline three specific tips that you can use on a daily basis in order to become more successful in the network marketing business. Let’s take a look at them:

Follow the system: You don’t have to reinvent the wheel in order to be successful. Far too often, I see people who are eager to make a name for themselves who try to do everything on their own. The fact of the matter is that if you’re not using Duplic8, you’re setting yourself up to fail. The thing is, we know the system works. Your way may be great for you, but not everyone is like you, so you need to use and teach a system that can easily be duplicated. Have an open mind and forget everything you were taught about sales. Then get with your upteam and make sure you are coachable. Keep showing the business. Show it once a week, show it once a day, show it three times a day. The more you show the business, the more successful you’ll be.

Believe in yourself: Believe that you can do this. People are attracted to confidence. Think about it: Would you be more likely to buy a car from someone who seems ambivalent about its features or someone who can talk about its benefits inside and out? If you show the person how excited you are about what you’re doing, they will be curious enough to at least want to see what you’re up to. And that’s half the battle.

Persevere: Show me a business that’s easy right off the bat and sign me up. Truth is, you’ve got to work hard to be successful in any business. But the old adage is true: Hard work pays off. It’s very easy to quit in network marketing. Believe me, we’ve all had our reasons, and it only takes one to stop. Sticking to it has paid off in the long run for a lot of Viridian Associates who determined long ago that their reason for doing this business was much stronger than any adversity that came along. Perseverance will not only help you succeed in this business, it’ll help you become a stronger person in all aspects of your life.
