What to look for in a good potential upline before you consider joining a team!

network marketing

Back in the day I could never succeed in MLM like 97% of other MLMers, or other network marketers. Instead of making money, I WASTED money! I wasted money on leads, which took me hours to call AND then to be rejected each and every time. Talk about discouraging. However, I have learned some key things that will make your business- no matter what kind it is, successful.

What you absolutely need when you are getting involved in MLM or are even launching your own business is some excellent training. You cannot be left out in the cold, not knowing what to do next- and believing if you buy leads that will bring you business. That SELDOM works! If you are getting involved in MLM, and have a company in mind to join- do NOT just join any team. There are lots of teams out there for every MLM company and do YOUR research. Read up on what others say about different teams AND if you see a lot of useful information written up by members of a certain team and there are videos they have created all over the internet, then that is a good sign. It is likely they know how to dominate the search engines and can teach you how to work the system.

However, even though this team could be giving out excellent information through different sources all over the internet- you need still need to “feel them out” before joining this team.

Firstly, a good team will have many features, especially the most crucial when it comes to building a downline. Duplication is the main factor which most systems do not have and the reason behind wasting time and money. Every marketer that is serious in his/her work knows that he/she MUST train his/her downline to bring in new members or else everyone will fail. And because it would take any leader an incredible amount of time to show his/her team the blueprint to effective marketing, leaders must encourage their team to join programs such as MLMZing. As this brilliant system will teach you everything and anything about how to succeed in your business. And if you are serious about becoming successful in your business whatever you may be doing, it is worth joining and getting training.

However, any good leader needs to make time to do his/her own training too, in conjunction of getting their downline to get training from MLMZing. A leader needs to take some time to create training materials in the back office. They need to create informative videos, or audio, and even ebooks, and a list of effective methods and sources in regards to advertising. The training needs to be in depth. Webinars need to be created and recorded for members. And the leader needs to learn how to make these materials as in depth but at the same time easy to understand. If not, then the marketer will be frustrated and upset that the training material is not high quality and easy to understand. How can any leader of a MLM company be trained? I CANNOT stress this enough!! All members and leaders of any MLM or other company needs to get their training from MLMZing! Leaders of any company especially NEED to understand the system inside and out in order to train their downline properly.

Another very important thing that leaders of any company needs to teach you is the importance of search engine optimization or SEO. I am actually very soon going to have a very affordable and up to date in depth SEO program for you which I have been working on 🙂 But I will say this much right now. Even though most companies will give you one of their replicated sites for promotion. Do not rely on that. You need to create your own domain name, which involves marketing. You need to create a blog, preferably a wordpress.org self hosted blog. You need to update that blog OFTEN about the company as well as giving good marketing tips. You must write articles and send them to well known article directories. You will need to learn the in and outs of dominating good keywords which I will go further on about in the course. Either way though, if there is a lot of information from YOU that you have provided about your company, it will soon enough be easily searched by the search engines. Besides if you do not brand yourself by not creating your own site/blog, it will make you look unprofessional. Who will join your team when you look unprofessional? However, a GOOD leader will also be telling you all of this as

There are other elements to look for when it comes to joining the ideal team. But AGAIN do not just rely on your team to train you. When you are looking to succeed in any company, it is crucial that you are trained fully and properly by your upline AND to get extra necessary training from MLMZing!I have a whole section on my blog, if you look at my tabs about it. To your success.
