Why Personal Branding?

"People join an opportunity or a business/program not because of the opportunity/business/program itself, but because of the person who introduce it to them." 

This quote is very true and have been proven by a lot of successful entrepreneurs already. If you're aspiring to become an entrepreneur and wanted to really succeed in your business, particularly online, always remember this simple principle and make it part of your goals.

 



The need for personal branding is very important especially if you're doing business on the internet. With the growth of the worldwide web, meeting a lot of different kinds of people from around the world is not that hard to do. It's now easy nowadays to share your opportunities/businesses/programs to a wide variety of audience. However, the question remains to be the same, "Why do people don't join me, despite of my various marketing efforts?"

People join an opportunity or a business/program of those people whom they trust. So, now you know that trust is crucial in doing an online business, but how do you do it? How do you make the people that you meet on the internet to trust you?

This is where personal branding comes into play. Remember that the people you meet on the internet only come and go. You also don't meet physically. Thus, trust should be establish first. In order for people to trust you online you need to let them know you better. You need to give value to everyone and position yourself as an expert in a particular field or industry. In short, you've got to promote YOU!

Find out on my next article a simple guide on how to start promoting yourself online.

Characters Of A Successful Entrepreneur or Networker

Success in the MLM industry can be compared to any kind of success in any organization. Networking is not just all about the money you'll be making or the products you're endorsing. It's mainly all about building relationships. As you build your team in this industry, you have to always keep an eye on the way you deal with the people around you. The following basic qualities must be possessed by anyone who wants to succeed in Network Marketing.

 


1.) Goal-Oriented. Having goals should be your first priority in order for you to know where you are going. Without goals, it's like driving a car during the night without turning on your headlights. You can't see which way to go. Define your purpose before embarking on the mission.

2.) Keen Focus. Doing lots of things at the same time can distract your concentration on your real intentions. In the same way, doing many MLM business at the same time can lose your focus in helping your team members to succeed. Just imagine leading different teams in different networks. It could also affect your commitment to your existing team. Even if all of these companies does not conflict with each other and you're really committed to make things happen, but the point is, you should not build different groups simultaneously. As the saying goes, "You cannot serve two masters at the same time." I'm not against creating multiple streams of income because I'm one of the avid believers of this principle. However, the right way to do it is to start with a single network of people whom you can consider as your core group, keeping it solid as much as possible as you work together to help as many people as you can. Then, when income starts to grow and stabilize with your current MLM company, you can agree on finding another opportunity that you can add and will become part of your multiple income sources. Of course, you have to make sure that this new business is as legitimate as your first one in order to maintain your integrity. With this, i firmly believe that FOCUS is one of the keys to success in networking.


3.) Persistence. Life is full of surprises and some of these will turn out to be obstacles. When doing any business, there's always ups and downs encountered and MLM is not an exception. The important thing that you should consider is not how many times you fail, but how many times you stand up everytime you fall. So, the next moment you meet failures along the way, make sure to just keep on moving forward, think of the solutions and persist!

4.) Team Player. Being in the networking world is not a "one-man show". You have to learn to mingle with people and be aligned with them on your mission and vision. When you're in a team, you have to work hand-in-hand with each other in order to achieve the desired results you're aiming for. If you're one in your endeavors, more great things can be done. This is the reason why TEAM means Together Everyone Achieves More.

5.) Results-Driven. Whatever the situation may be, always direct your attention to what you want to happen and achieve. As a quote states, "There's always light at the end of the tunnel." Think about the light and not the darkness inside the tunnel. One of the habits mentioned in Stephen Covey's Book, The Seven Habits Of Highly Effective People directly points to this attitude, "Begin with the end in mind!"
