Are there really Network Marketing Success Secrets? Do top leaders really keep what works to themselves and not share it with their downline?
Some may tell you they do, but I never have and to me it makes no sense for a leader not share everything they know with their team. Why? Because the better their team does the better they do.
So I always shared any strategy that worked with my team, why wouldn’t I?
Now if you come across a new method of prospecting and recruiting new distributors I would recommend testing it first before moving it out to your team, any many leaders do this. It is not smart to use your downline as Guinea pigs. Make sure the method works and that your team can easily implement it into their business building activities before sharing it with them.
But saying there are secrets gives the impression that someone is all hush hush and keeping you out of the loop by not sharing them with you.
I truly do not believe this is the case, but there could be strategies that some networkers use that you are not yet aware of yet; in my books they are not secrets they are simply strategies that you in your journey have not learned yet.
So today I am going to share with you 2 of these supposed network marketing success secrets.
If you embrace these concepts and strategies there is no question you are going to start crushing your business and start building a serious downline much quicker than you thought was possible.
So let’s dive in…
Secret #1 – Master Just 1 Skill Set to Live the Life of Your Dreams
Most people come into network marketing under false pretenses. They join the business under the illusion that it is going to be easy or get rich quick.
And nothing could be further from the truth. Yes it is a hell of a lot easier than any other option out there, but it takes time, it does require learning new skills and it does require effort.
This problem stems from how most distributors present the opportunity to their prospect. Typically their best friend or family member.
You know exactly how it goes…
Someone joins the business because they are all jacked up out of their head excited about the money they are going to make. They joined because they saw a presentation from some dude at the front of the room all dressed to the nine’s in a fancy dancy suit drawing the magic circles on a board.
He’s up there giving a hell of a show, talking about the compensation plan, the luxury cars and the exotic vacations and BAM they are hooked man, they are sold, it is cash money time. All they can see is the dollar signs, corvettes and palm trees!
So they whip out their credit card, join on the spot and run off to tell their two best buddies Pete and Frankie how all they have to do is get in and go get 2 other people to get in and those people will get 2 other people and so on and so forth and they are all going to get rich and live on a beach sipping rum out of coconuts the rest of their lives.
The Way It Really Is
Now that probably is not exactly what happen to you, but there is no doubt that the majority of people enroll in this business without a complete understanding of what it is going to take make it successful.
A misunderstanding that it is going to be easy.
See the truth is that network marketing is a business!
A business my friend.
And just like any business it takes time to make it successful. It takes work to make it successful. It takes learning new skill sets to make it successful.
We have all heard the saying that nothing in life worthwhile is free. It’s true, trust me I looked hard for the get rich quick option and she don’t exist. And while deep down we all know this is true for some reason many people who join network marketing think this industry is the exception.
It is not!
Now do NOT get me wrong…
This industry is incredible because it evens the playing field man…
It is without a doubt the best option for normal everyday people to be able to create a ridiculously incredible lifestyle. There is no other option like it when it comes to creating true freedom and earning serious money.
And the fact is that anyone with the desire and commitment can make it happen.
People from all walks of life have and do create amazing success in this business all of the time. And you can do so in a relatively short period of time 12 – 24 months if you commit to making that happen.
BUT it takes just that, a commitment and a desire to making it happen.
It takes investing the time, energy and money to doing it. It takes committing to learning the required skill sets. And the number 1 skill set that you must learn and when you do pays BIG dollars is Prospecting!
Prospecting the Skill Set that Really Pays!
The biggest secret to your success in this business is the people who make it have become good to great at prospecting.
To make it you will want to throw all of your energy into learning how to become very good at prospecting and recruiting new distributors.

Here is the good news bad news reality…
I don’t care if you are making $1000 per month or $100,000 per month in your business if you are not prospecting and recruiting new distributors into your business on a regular basis your business is going backwards.
Now to some that is bad news… but to me it was GREAT news!
To me I got pretty damn excited when it dawned on me what that meant. Most things in life require many skill sets to get paid big bucks. Not network marketing. All I needed to do was get good at 1 thing!
Get good at 1 thing and I can write my own pay check!
How cool is that my friend?
Really think about how many skills you have learned in your life, how many things you can do without even thinking about it. It’s a lot!
All you need to do is learn 1 more thing! Just 1 more thing my friend.

Secret #2 – Why Some People Have Immediate Success and How You Can Too
We’ve all seen it or heard about it happening.
Someone who nobody has ever heard of before joins your network marketing company and crushes it right out of the gates. They fly through the leadership ranks. They are getting rank advanced almost daily. And seem to create a huge organization and profitable business over night.
How are they able to do this??
I am actually very familiar with this as it is my story. I was able to do this exact thing and at the time I was too busy building to understand why it was or even give it much thought. I just thought it was how it was supposed to be.
But as we all know clearly it is not how it is for most. It use to drive me nuts that most of the people I enrolled were not able to do the same thing. And eventually I figured out why this was, and it was not their fault and it was not that I had some special God given gift.
If there is a secret in network marketing this is it.
Why are some people able to do what I just described and others are not?
The Secret Revealed
The answer to this puzzle is actually quite simple. They had Influence!
Somehow through something they did in their life prior to joining this industry they created influence over a large group of people.
This group of people looked up to them, respected them, and admired them because of this influence they had created.
And when this leader asked their group of people aka their tribe to look at their business opportunity they not only looked at it but they took it very seriously because this person who they admired asked them to.
Prior to joining my network marketing company I had started a weight loss company in my city. I am a marketer by trade and had successfully marketed and promoted the company in such a way that it was well known in the city.
It was actually nominated for an award as one of the best new startups that year. People knew me as someone who was making things happen and going for it.
So when I approached them and told them I had an opportunity they should look at they took it seriously. As a result I was able to recruit 18 of them in my first two weeks and created a successful business very quickly.
So What Does this Mean for YOU?
I know I know, you are probably saying great story Robb… hurrah for you! But what does this mean for me?
Well my friend because of the Internet and Social media it is now a very straight forward and simple process to go out and create influence over a large group of people yourself.
It is very easy for you to become admired by a large group of people.
It is very easy for you to create a Brand based around you. A brand where people will respect and admire you as well as come to see you as an expert and someone that they should listen to.
And when you have successfully created this type of influence it is a game changer for your business. When you successfully do this you are rolling man.
And what is very cool is not only is it very possible for you to accomplish exactly that using the internet but when you do it is even better and more powerful than what I had going.
This is because influence created online is superior to influence created offline.
Here is why…
The influence you create online and through social media continues to grow at a rapid pace.
The internet is a Massive place with billions of people. As your brand grows you continue to attract more and more people to you. More and more people start to follow you, respect, admire and listen to you. More and more people want to learn about your business.
Online the group of people you can create influence over is infinite.
Whereas offline the influence is finite and you go through it quickly.
I created influence in my City. But eventually I had approached all of those people who I had influence over and guess what I ran out of people to share my business with.
Yup even though I was able to come out of the gates fast I ended up in the same place as everyone else, struggling to find people to prospect, struggling to find new people to share my opportunity with it.
The internet changes all of this.
Using the right strategies the possibilities are endless. You will never run out of high quality prospects who look up to you and who will want to join your business.
Give yourself permission to take the time to learn these methods. Dig into them and put what you learn into action and it will surprise you have quickly you get good to great at prospecting and recruiting.
