This article is Part 1 of a short series of 5 articles designed to show you how to build substantial leverage in your Internet marketing campaigns, whether you are building an Internet marketing business online or using traditional techniques. As any successful entrepreneur will tell you, the key to achieving financial freedom in any business is to leverage your personal time and energy and let systems or people work for you.
In this first article, you’ll learn the importance of setting meaningful goals for your business, truly understand the financial and lifestyle benefits of building a network marketing business, and be able to explain them to others!
In order to achieve any results, it’s important to set small goals that will move you in the direction of your larger goals, but before you can achieve them, you need to make yourself aware of what’s truly possible with your business. Too many people enter internet marketing with misunderstandings about what is possible and what it takes to be successful, which can lead to frustration and even disappointment later on.
When setting goals, you must be absolutely aware of the benefits of owning a network marketing business. Not only that, you must be knowledgeable enough to explain the benefits to others in a way they can understand. For example, how many prospects you talk to truly understand the difference between being an employee and being a business owner? Without realizing this, can you blame anyone for asking exactly how much money they’re going to get? If you can’t explain it clearly to them, how do you encourage them to consider the benefits to their finances and lifestyle?
As another example, if you can clearly explain why direct sales and network marketing have captured current industry trends, and why many network marketing companies have been unaffected by the recession, then you think you will be able to make a greater impact on your opportunity. interest? Especially during times of economic change and uncertainty!
To tie this into goal setting, your goals will reflect your own understanding of the industry and business. If your goal is to achieve financial freedom, then your previous goals must be related to making enough income from your network marketing business to quit your day job forever! I’m not suggesting that this should be your goal, but your mid-term goals must reflect desired future outcomes. If you don’t know the benefits of owning a business rather than being an employee, you won’t be motivated enough to achieve this initial goal. Additionally, you won’t be able to show enthusiasm to your potential clients or encourage them to desire something similar.
I hope this highlights the importance of building your business and internet marketing knowledge and encourages you to think about your goals and aspirations. In Part 2, our goal is to develop your existing direct sales and network marketing industry knowledge so that you can share what you have learned now with your potential clients.
