This post is all about mlm marketing.
Whether you just joined a team or company for the first time or you are a seasoned entrepreneur, there are key strategies that will help you win.
The world is changing quickly and it is essential for entrepreneurs to focus their precious time on what is working right now.
What worked five years ago is not necessarily what is working now.
These 5 key strategies will help achieve all of your goals and more importantly, they will help you lead others by example so your team can win too.
Quick secret: my favorite part of this industry is that to grow, you must help others grow too.
After growing teams around the world and coaching thousands of network marketers, we are so passionate about it that we launched our own network marketing company in over 100 countries.
These key strategies once implemented have helped so many entrepreneurs around the world go from idea to reality without burning out, that I know they can help you too.
We are always happy to help others whether they are a part of our company or not because it elevates the industry as a whole and keeps empowering entrepreneurs.
So let’s dive right in and make mlm marketing fun again!
1-Be confident in what you offer
In the beginning this should be easy. You should join mlm opportunities that you are excited about.
You saw something special in your service, product, and/or company leadership and that is why you partnered with that mlm company to promote it.
People should celebrate someone joining a company with as much excitement as they do a baby shower! It’s awesome!
Sadly, not everyone is excited about your new mlm marketing strategies and not everyone that joins your team will stay and build.
You have to keep your eye on the prize so that no matter what happens, you will continue to stay thrilled about your opportunity.
Rain or shine, you must stay the course in order to confidently move forward with your business.
For me this felt like an impossible task at first. As a recovering people pleaser, I couldn’t wrap my head around people not liking something I was doing.
Then I realized….
You should only take advice from people who have what you want.
With that said, you should also only take advice from people who not only have what you want but who are teaching you in a way that is a good fit for you.
Some people won’t dance on Tik Tok and some won’t post on Youtube- that is OK. You can still be confident while being yourself and be confident in what you offer.
If you ever feel stuck and like you are an imposter, remember that we all have ups and downs and deserve to give ourselves some grace.

2- Brand yourself and not just your network marketing company
I have been there…
You get so excited about what you are promoting that the next thing you do is wallpaper your life with the logo, color scheme, and product pictures of the mlm company you are promoting.
While this is awesome and an expression of your passion, it makes communicating the value of what you have to offer to others a bit difficult.
People join people- not just companies.
Your mlm company is just the vehicle that people are using to join YOU.
So when you talk 90% about your company and 10% about what is going on in the news, people find it hard to get to know you.
Before people buy from you, they need to know, like, and trust you.
Without a personal brand, they will likely have to know you in person and have a history with you.
While that is cool, it leaves a lot of amazing people behind who could have also joined you.
You also need a personal brand to avoid people seeing your company product or name and simply running to google to find out about it.
They might do this because they are skeptical or too shy to ask you.
In that case, you run the risk that they find a bunch of negative Karens blogging about your company or product.
An even bigger hot mess would be that they love it but buy it from a link that does not help you make a commission for recommending it.
So here are some quick mlm marketing social media tips to brand yourself while still showing your excitement about your mlm:
-Share your “why” and what led you to make a change and become an entrepreneur
-Share your success story with your product or service (just as natural as you would share why you loved a particular restaurant)
-Share a relatable story of others who your friends can connect with (you edify others and attract customers all at once)
-Share your goals (leaders always attract leaders when they show all the things they have in common…I love connecting with people who love to read)
Be yourself and remember you have a product or service- it doesn’t have you.
3- Build an email list of people who are perfect for your offer!
I am going to cut to the chase- you do not own your social media page.
These companies simply let us use them so they can sell ads.
It is a mutually beneficial relationship…until they shut it down or become irrelevant.
It’s not paranoia, this is a reality all business owners need to come to terms with.
Don’t believe me…
Look at MySpace, Vine, Snapchat, Periscope, and more.
They were awesome while they were awesome and when people moved on to another platform, you found it hard to reach out to them.
The best way to enjoy yourself on social media without stressing over this is to have another way to keep in touch with others that you actually own.
My preferred way is an email list!
Not only do I keep in touch with my subscribers, add tons of value, and reach out to them no matter what mood the algorithm is in (that pesky code that decides who sees your posts daily and usually decides to show it to less than 1% of your followers).
If you have an mlm marketing strategy that uses email marketing, you will be able to set up a follow up system that people love and helps you grow your business without burning out.

4- Work with your mentor to get the best strategy for your goals
As a company owner myself who has helped design a compensation plan, who has designed training for people to win, who has traveled the world (with my hubby and co-founder too- you have to meet him soon, you will love him)….. I can tell you that there is no need to re-invent the wheel.
I have found that the most successful people who earn all the incentives, make bank, travel with peace of mind, and help others win are coachable themselves.
Look… I get that you are an entrepreneur with ideas and massive creativity.
It is probably why you have an mlm business- so no one can tell you what to do.
On the other hand, you also don’t get paid for exposure, you don’t get paid for good intentions, you don’t get paid for posting, nor do you get paid per hour.
You get paid for results.
I say… get those results! With the income, resources, and credibility from your results you can then get creative.
For instance, I had a new person work with me and I asked them to follow our Legacy Builder Blueprint.
They wanted to cater a dinner, get a venue, bring a photographer, and do the most with all the things.
I loved the ideas! I could have even sent over some Pinterest ideas to help them execute on all that.
But it wouldn’t be right if I did.
The right thing is to share what works and sometimes what works isn’t sexy or exciting.
The bulk of success is usually composed of discipline, proven strategies, and implementation.
That might look boring to some but if you want to win- be coachable.
Do what others won’t now so later on you can live how others can’t- free and happy!
5-Work on your wealth consciousness daily
When you wake up you need to have your mind on your money and your money on your mind.
And if you feel like there aren’t enough people out there who will buy your product without asking for a family discount, this will hold you back.
If you are marketing without believing in what you do, people will sense it and it will hold you back.
Your success will only be as great as your mindset.
You can’t have a big life while thinking small.
Businesses have ups and downs.
The mistake people make when they are in a business high is that they don’t realize how much higher they can still go and they take their foot off the gas.
The mistake people make when they are in a business low is that they don’t realize how much higher they can still go and they take their foot off the gas.
The only remedy is to work on your wealth consciousness daily.
You and only you can decide that there is more out there for you.
To help you with that I am sharing with you recordings of private trainings I hosted for our top leaders that helped them 10x their results.
