How to Network Market: Creating a Network Marketing Dream TeamWhen figuring out how to network market, most people just make a list of their warm market and start calling everyone. They will sponsor anyone and everyone with no regard to abilities or qualities. Some of these people we already sense won’t do well because they aren’t coach-able, but we sponsor them anyway. I am not saying this is necessarily wrong. It might just be an inevitable experience we need to go through. Besides that, it helps us hone our skills in sales. As long as we get through this stage and don’t quit, the next stage is to develop a good method (or several) of generating leads for our business. If we figure this out, then we can start developing a team of leaders- better yet, a team of leaders that complement each other. Napoleon Hill would call it a mastermind group.

One of the strongest advantages of a network marketing, as opposed to being self employed, is the team concept- the mastermind idea. If built right, people can rally together for a common goal. Building a good team will make your business work in a synergistic way. Since most of my life I have been self employed, this skill has not come easy to me. In order to have a business that is truly sustaining residual income, and that can survive the inevitable challenges that happen, you need a strong team.

If you are just beginning, you can develop that team. If you have a nice size group, you can bring together your leaders and start really working together for a common goal.

  1. Find people that complement each other- In a team, you don’t want people working together just because they get along or because they are the same. You want people that can be productive together and are synergistic.
  2. Create a common goal- All team members should have the same basic goal and team purpose.
  3. Create a code of honor- To create a code of honor is a main emphasis of a great book on business teams in the Rich Dad Poor Dad series of books. It is called The ABC’s of Building a Business Team That Wins, by Blair Singer. One of his statements is, “In the absence of rules people make their own.” This also leads to my next point.
  4. Have clear, comprehensive communication- In order to have a great team, you need to have great communication. I am not talking about phones that are networked. I am talking about the way you communicate. Are you precise and complete with your instructions? Do you make sure that any questions that might come up are already answered? Do you realize that these people do not work for you, they work for themselves in this team?
  5. Team competitions- Team competition combined with cooperative learning is the ultimate in team dynamics. This is where I am right now. These last two points came from me listening to Mark Hoverson’s “Irresistible Info-Marketing Blueprint” (not available at the time of this article.)

At the time of this writing, I am rallying one of my teams into a little friendly competition. I will give you the results in a couple of months. If you would like to become part of our team leave you name, email and phone number in the box to the right.
