Whenever we are thinking about joining an MLM company one of the first things we need to look for is a good company. A company that provides a product that will actually offer some sincere value to people’s lives. For me that rules out a lot of companies! But the 2nd thing we need to carefully consider is who should be our coach & mentor?
To a large degree our success will be determined by the coaching that you get from your mlm mentor, particularly if you are new to the business. From the horrific stories that I have heard over the last few months it seems that there are a lot of so called mlm coaches that are not delivering the goods.
I have heard of people being completely ditched by their upline soon after joining up or being extremely difficult to contact and unwilling to spend time coaching their new recruits. This ‘take the money and run’ mentality is one of the reasons why there is still some stigma attached to the MLM industry.
Have you experienced a hideaway sponsor before?
If so then I really do feel for you. In my very first MLM company I experienced that same thing. It got to a point where it was actually difficult for me to get my commission cheques out of my upline! At that point I was not a ‘direct distributor’ therefore was only at 25% override on product sales and my payments had to go through my upline. Countless telephone calls chasing my money actually ended up with me going round my sponsor’s house! They did pay up there and then 😉
So what should we look for in an MLM coach & mentor?
You want to look for someone who is already having success in their business otherwise it’s a case of the blind leading the blind, you want someone who holds high personal values and is determined (this will be evident in how they present themselves on the telephone, in person and on company presentations).
You ideally want to find someone who has a larger and more powerful vision than you do, if you spend enough time observing them you too will soon pick up that vision for yourself. If a sponsor has a powerful vision they will be leading by example, they will also have a powerful recruiting system that you can duplicate and implement into your own business.
It goes without saying that you want a sponsor that is contactable, this is especially important for any online venture as some people tend to hide away behind their computer. I don’t care what anyone says, in MLM this does not work, you must still be prepared to pick up the telephone! Test out your proposed MLM coach before signing up, get them on the phone, see how helpful they are, but don’t waste their time with silly questions, they should be too busy for that.
Be sure to ask them specifically what training and coaching they will give you AFTER you have signed up.
The best sponsors I have found are the ones that offer the greatest value. Before you even sign up them you will feel like an expert from all the knowledge that they have passed on to you via free training materials. These are the sponsors that actually care about your individual success over and above the money you put in their pocket. There are some people in this world who just love to help others and see the fruits of their teaching.
There is no greater feeling for me than passing on knowledge and information to others that will enable them to change their life for the better. It’s like a universal flow of energy that passes through you, as you help others get what they want you get more of what you want (Zig Zigler says the same thing and it’s very true)
A good MLM coach & mentor will offer you regular training and they will also teach you how to be a great sponsor to your team.
I am proud to say that I have been mentored by some of the best mentors in MLM and it has enabled me to position myself for massive success in this industry. I would love to pass on ALL my knowledge to you and show you the duplicatable recruitment system that I use for my business. I am not into doing things by halves so I will be revealing EVERYTHING to you that you need to build a profitable MLM business on and offline.
