How To Influence People For MLM Success

How To Influence People For MLM SuccessMost of us as network marketers have a vision for success. I can remember the first time I was introduced to MLM and network marketing…everything just ‘clicked’. It just seemed to make sense.

For me, MLM success was inevitable. I thought for sure that all I had to do was share with my friends, relatives, and associates what I had seen at the opportunity meeting – and magically it would make sense to them as well.

Boy was I was wrong.

To be a good leader means to have influence in the lives of others. In order to groom yourself for MLM success, you are going to have to learn how to influence people.

MLM Success Tips: What NOT To Do!

When most people get started in network marketing, they don’t know the first thing about how to influence people to their way of thinking. We can’t achieve MLM success until we are properly trained.

Here are some of the biggest mistakes I see from untrained network marketers:

  • They say too much
  • Come across as needy or desperate
  • Say and do all the wrong things and experience a ton of rejection
  • Try to manipulate prospects
  • Chase after unqualified people
  • Argue with prospects on why ‘it’s not a pyramid scheme’
  • Spam others on social media with their links
  • Make it all about themselves

If we’re going to be an MLM success, then we have to realize that success isn’t all about us. Yes, that’s right – success, whether in general or MLM success, is NOT about you! It’s about being a leader and learning how to influence people – if you ignore this and refuse to learn how to influence people and position yourself as an authority figure, then you’ll never be successful.

How To Influence People: Leadership 101

Leadership is all about influence. You won’t find a leader anywhere that has no influence in the lives of others. You won’t follow somebody you don’t trust.  As a leader, you have to build trust.

“True leadership cannot be awarded, appointed, or assigned.  It comes only from influence, and that can’t be mandated.  It must be earned.  The only thing a title can buy is a little time – either to increase your level of influence with others or to erase it.” -John Maxwell

Below are some tips on how to influence people so that you can achieve mlm success.

  • Be competent – learn the skills of how to work your business and stop ‘winging it’.
  • Gain rapport by connecting with others. People love to talk about themselves – so let them do so.
  • Be a person of character and integrity. In this day and age, these qualities are highly valuable.
  • Encourage others and avoid criticism (whether direct or indirect) at all costs.
  • Serve others – place their needs above your own. Buy them lunch or a cup of coffee.
  • Make remembering their name a top priority and say it often. People love the sound of their own name.
  • Avoid an argument at all cost – even if they believe differently than you.

These are just a few tips, but there are countless more. Follow these and your influence will increase and so will your success.

Now That You Know How To Influence People For MLM Success…

Take action.

One of the biggest mistakes that people make today isn’t that they don’t know how to influence people, but rather, they don’t take action.

Influencing others after all is a skill that can be learned quite easily – and learning is the easy part! The hard part is actually applying what we’ve learned and taking action. This is what can really make the difference between MLM success or failure.

Don’t make the mistake of getting ready to get ready.

Remember, revelation by itself will never change you. It’s only the application of that revelation that changes you.
