Network Marketing Success Tip – How to build a decent sized downline in 90 Days or less…

Have you ever joined a network marketing business and waited until you got your products and kept making excuses until you made your list or got to work?  I know I have, I can remember times where I spent days or even weeks just working on my office or waiting until my business cards arrived or until I got my new products in the mail before I did anything with my business.  Some people I have come across over the years spend 90% of their time just doing that and not much more.  And you wonder why so many people are not successful with network marketing.  Some people I have come across over the years spend 90% of their time just attending events or training calls.  That’s valuable, but unless you get into action you will probably never see your business grow past an auto ship order and a tax write off.  If you want to make income in MLM whether it be a few thousand or several thousand a month you must sponsor a lot of people and continue to do so over and over again until you get a decent sized team together.  Once you get a good team going your activity will shift to get into the trenches and work with your people.  3-way calls, presentations, etc…

This article isn’t really written for the team leader with a large team, but more for the person just getting started in network marketing or the individual who is struggling.  I want to give you some valuable tips to build your business fast without being an internet guru.  Besides the internet rarely works building a large team if you don’t know how to connect with others offline.

So below I have given you some action tips that should really help you get up and running. But before I leave these tips keep in mind that you really only get paid to do two things in network marketing – recruit customers, and to recruit distributors.  Once you realize that -you can spend 80% of your time on that activity and the other 20% working with your team and on-going training.  I call it the 80/20 rule and you won’t move from that until you have a team of at least 50 or 60 people who are active and calling you for 3 ways or support.

Activity Tips to Explode your Network Marketing Business in 90 Days!

  1. Make a list of 20 people who know you and like you and call them and tell them what you are up to.  Don’t worry about the outcome just call them and announce to them that you are a distributor with this great company and wanted to share your products and opportunity with them. You might get a response like, isn’t this that pyramid thing?  You’re going to answer, “I don’t know about that, but I plan on taking my family to go see the pyramids after I build this business.”
  2. Once you go through your 20 then you will want to cold call.  You need to make a goal of how many calls you can make per day.  If you work full-time it may only be 5 or 10 calls per day.  If you’re scared of the phone you will need to get over it eventually, but you can reach out to 5 or 10 people per day on Facebook via Facebook Messenger.  If you need tips on how to do this you can fill out my form on this website and get my free E-book to help you get going.
  3. Always be adding to your network and make sure you have business cards on you at all times.  As you continue to expand your network there will be more and more opportunity to share your opportunity.  If you don’t get out of the house much then you may want to look up professionals in your area and email them until you get good posture on the phone.   You can do this through Facebook or LinkedIn by doing a search.  Only do this a few times per day.  I have an entire blog post on how to do this activity click here to read (read after you get through this post).
  4. Set a day and time that you are going to do your business and stick to it.  If you have a full-time job then you might only be able to work in the evenings (The best time to reach people anyways).   You will do only prospecting from 6PM to 8PM Monday – Friday and attend 1 training call per week.  That’s about 10 to 12 hours per week and very doable for most people.  You can generally reach around 10 to 15 people per day if you put the blinders on.
  5. Once you get someone who says they would like more information than you simply invite them to look at your opportunity – online, offline, wherever.  Most presentations take around 30 minutes.  Once they agree to watch your company presentation schedule a time to follow up and ask them one question, “What did you like best”?  Then wait for their response (first person to speak always loses).  Remember, you don’t care about the outcome.  If they are interested then you simply call your upline immediately and get them on a 3-way call or schedule a time to do this (please make sure you know how to do a 3-way call on your phone).  You’re off the hook at this point.  Let your upline enroll your downline and breath.

There is more that you can do once you start making money like advertising and purchasing leads, but these tips should keep you busy for a few months and get you a decent sized downline in 90 days.  The keyis to be busy every day and keep moving.  When you run out of people to talk to turn to Facebook or LinkedIn and just keep going and you will be successful.  If you feel like you need some coaching or just a mentor for a month or two to get you going feel free to email me at for a free 30-minute consultation.  I have coached many successful networkers over the years and know what it takes to build a large team.


How To Get More Followers To Your Facebook Fan Page

If you’re anything like me and want to use Facebook to market your business, you will need to set up a Facebook Business Page aka Fan Page. Why is this important? Because without it, you will have a difficult time promoting your brand, service, or product. The trick is what to do you do once you set up your page to get more followers?

To get more followers in the beginning you simply send a invite to everyone who is your friend on your personal page. This will get the ball rolling and should get you anywhere from 50 to 200 followers quickly. You also may want to post a status update on your personal page about your new fan page and/or group. You could also ask some of your friends with big followings or influencers if they would be willing to put a shout out for you. Once you do this — you are on your way.

Next you want to be sure that you post regularly. Always try and come up with good content and post once per day if you can. This will get people coming to your page often and should get you new followers weekly. I don’t think its necessary to post more than one time per day — less is bet on Facebook and consistency is very important.

If you plan on doing advertising to promote your page this is another great way to get followers. Keep in mind that you don’t want to pay too much per like, so test some different campaigns to see which works the best and try to keep each like to less than 50 cents each (preferably around 15 to 20 cents).

If you’re on Instagram make sure to connect your Instagram page to your Facebook Fan Page. This will also allow you to post pictures and videos from Instragram page directly to your Facebook Page and this should help you get more likes as well.
You may also try and follow some influencers in your niche from your Facebook Fan Page not your personal page and like and comment on interesting posts, this will also get you some likes.

If you really want to get a ton of followers fast you can always pay a social media expert to get you lots of likes. Typically you can pay anywhere from $50 to $1000 to jumpstart your page. The only downside with this strategy is it may be a lot of followers who really have no interest in your niche. I have used this strategy above with a few who just wanted a large following fast. If you do the latter strategy do not stop there always be promoting.
Finally, if you blog or do videos, make sure to always post those to your page as well. This is a great way to keep it interesting and build value with your audience on a regular basis.
If all the above seems too overwhelming or you simply just need a some direction you can always reach out to a social media expert to help implement some of these strategies for you and your business. Myself and my team are always available should you need any help email me at

How To Recruit for Network Marketing on Facebook

I used to do a 100% of my recruiting for network marketing on Facebook and MySpace before it imploded. I realized recently that I have really gotten away from it for a few years now.  It was so powerful a few years ago it wasn’t uncommon for me to sponsor 15 to 20 people per month by just using social media mainly Facebook. So today, I want to share with you some tips on how to get people interested in your business via Facebook.  I know these tips still work as I tested them last month and sponsored a few people using some of these tactics.

Post something about your business without a link to your business, but maybe a blog or just something to spark some curiosity.  I find that this usually works better than just posting a link to my company website.

Top Tips for How To Recruit with Facebook

Get in the habit of connecting or re-connecting with 3 to 5 people per day and watch your business grow. Who wants to join me in reaching out to 5 people per day on Facebook? And this isn’t about spamming, but actually sending out messages to people you have as friends or new friends.  Just simply introduce yourself and ask your new or old friend about what they are up to.  Again, you are not even mentioning your business unless they ask you about it.  Then and only then would you even mention it.  Just send a message with the following, “Hey John, it’s been awhile since we last connected, what are you up to these days?”

Start a Facebook Group for network marketers.  I started a group called “Become an MLM Superstar”.  I’ve definitely sponsored at least a handful of people from this group and it’s a great way to connect with others who may not join your business, but definitely are like-minded for the most part.

Just be consistent in your activity.  If you’ve only got a few minutes per day, maybe you set a goal to just reach out to 2 or 3 new people per day.  My goal is to go for reaching out to 5 new people per day with no ulterior motive except that I am looking for people who have similar interests (networking, business owners, music, entrepreneurs).

If you need a little more help with using the tactics above that I mentioned, please watch the video below to see how this could work for you.

Get More Business By Boosting Your Posts on Facebook

A few years ago I began to boost my posts on my Facebook Business Page. Not because I really wanted to, but because I figured that with around 10,000 followers at the time it was apparent to me that only 2 to 5% of my followers were going to see my posts.

When I first got on Facebook back in 2008 it was not uncommon for most of your followers to see your posts, but nowadays that just doesn’t happen. I think it is even worse with the Facebook Business Pages vs. The Facebook Personal Pages.

So which posts do you post and so forth? I would recommend anything that is business (marketing related) be boosted straight away. You can do this for as little as $15 per week ($2 per day per post). If you’d like to do a boost on a non-business related post where there is no call to action than only boost those posts that are getting a big response rate (Facebook will actually send you a notification). Keep in mind that by boosting your posts you are doing 2 things — hopefully getting someone to opt-in to your email list if you are doing a marketing post (always post links to take people to a squeeze or capture page). And if you are boosting posts that don’t have a call to action (non-business) you are doing this to either get more engagement or more followers.

Since this can be a bit costly to build up your online presence over time you need to know pretty much what it is you are after before you boost your post. You also need to set aside a budget. You can start with as little as $60 per month. I would recommend test marketing in the beginning and stay on top of it every few days, so you don’t spend too much too soon.

I personally always target my posts to audiences whom I feel would be most interested in the post. For example, if the post is about cold calling on the phone, I may reach out to salespeople, realtors, or network marketing professionals. If the call to action is for weight loss products, I would probably reach out to people who have expressed interest in weight loss products. Or if I’m promoting plumbing services, I’m only going to reach out to people in my local area. Once you know your market, you can have lots of fun with boosting posts and get a lot more traction than you can with a non-boosted post. It’s the difference of having only 100 people see your post or up to a 100,000.

If you’re looking to get more followers never boost your post to your existing audience, always target new people outside your existing network. If you are looking to get more sales or expand your email list than it’s perfectly ok to just simply boost your post to your existing followers.

When you click on the boost your post button it will allow you to pick geographical areas (globally), interests, and/or if you just want to post to your current followers.

Hope this helps, you get more sales more followers and grow your brand on Facebook.

The Importance of #Hashtags

If you’re using Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn or Instagram these days for business, you might want to consider using #Hashtags as much as possible in your posts to get recognized in the searches on those sites. What are hashtags? Hashtags are those symbols that look something like this (#) and are usually followed by whatever the user wants to show up in the searches like #quotes, #blog, or #weightloss. Whatever your status updates pertain to, make sure to use (#) as often as possible, especially on Instagram and Twitter. This will not only get you more followers but will also get you more activity on your latest posts. Of course, nothing beats a large marketing budget to advertise your posts (upcoming chapter), but if you are on a limited budget, or just starting out, this is a great way to build up your presence on Social Media. If you’re like me and use Twitter a lot, make sure to Retweet posts with hashtags as this will help you get more followers as well. Just like in most everything – the more eyeballs that follow your business, the more biz you will get.

Also, it’s important that your hashtags are relevant to your status updates. If you’re posting something about weight loss, you probably don’t want to put #ladygaga in there. The whole thing with Social Media is engagement into your posts – connecting and building a relationship with your following.

Make your hashtags short and understandable. In other words, don’t use hashtags for things like #thisiswaytoolongforanyonetoread. go with things like #happy #funny #quotes #weightloss #gym #fitness.

Make a habit of putting hashtags in your status updates, especially on Twitter and watch your following begin to grow.  It’s also important to only #hashtag keywords in your post or relevance.  For example, if you post a quote, I always end my post with #quotes even though I didn’t mention anything about quotes per say in my message, but it is relevant being that what I posted was a quote.  If I post something like “Watching The Seattle Seahawks destroy the Detroit lions”, I would probably hashtag #SeattleSeahawks #DetroitLions and something of relevance like #NFL or if it’s a primetime game #mondaynightfootball.

If you’re using picture based sites like Pinterest and Instagram it’s important that you not only use hashtags in your posts, but also include a detailed description describing your picture.  This is the only way you picture will ever appear in the search engines of Pinterest or Instagram (since these sites are for posting images).  If you just post a picture with no description or hashtags you’re pretty much guaranteed that nobody will ever find your post.  There is still a debate out there on whether this is as important for Facebook, but I do it anyways.

So get in the habit of putting as many #hashtags into your posts as possible and this will help you get more likes and followers on Social Media especially on Instagram and Twitter.
