This week Eric teaches us how to move past the slow summer months to create and keep momentum in your Network Marketing business. As Eric has told us before, there are two types of people in network marketing, the Amateurs, and the Professionals. During slow summer months, the amateurs say, “Well, all my distributors or all my prospects are busy. People are doing family time. People are going on vacation. People are distracted. People don’t want to look at the opportunity. People aren’t in a business mindset. Since they’re all busy, I’m gonna go on vacation.” The Professional makes the decision to get market share, to take advantage of the opportunities left lying on the table by all of the other distributors who have chosen to take the summer off, and they get a larger “slice of the pie.” So instead of accepting the excuses that no one’s ready to look at the opportunity, remember there’s a lot of people who can ‘t afford vacations, and might be desperately praying for an opportunity.
This summer you could find yourself you’re sitting in a situation where you have a choice; to either accept the limiting beliefs that now is not a good time to build, or use this as an opportunity to step in and get some market share. Eric further gives us strategies on how to get your market share and to get your team excited and on board with you also. The first is come up with a campaign or a recruiting blitz such as holding one home meeting a week or go on a 10-day recruiting blitz or a weekend blitz.
Eric suggests that you come up with a campaign now, write it down, and get a strong vision and game plan around it. Do not have a lost summer, use it for growth and momentum.
