Do You Need An MLM Coach?
Then, when I recruited people into my downline, I tried to be their MLM coach.
Man, what a disaster that was!
The truth is, the success of your business is not dependent on your sponsor, or anyone else in your upline. It’s entirely up to you.
You’re the one who needs to decide whether or not you need an MLM coach. What are the benefits of coaching?
Well, first of all, you’ve got a mentor. Somebody who has been where you are and has overcome the hurdles you now face.
Not only that, but your MLM coach can be your friend. And, if you’re like me, you need all the friends you can get who are sympathetic to the fact that you’re a network marketer.
When your coworkers, friends, and even your wife tell you you’re wasting your time and money, it’s awesome to have somebody around in the know who tells you you’re not.
In that sense, having an MLM coach pretty much saved my life.
Especially when you’re just starting out in MLM, there are so many questions that nobody seems to be able to answer. The reason for that is that there are so many ways to market your business.
What works for your sponsor might not work for you at all. So, in a very real sense, you’re on your own.
An MLM coach can identify where your strengths are, and can help you capitalize on them. Do you suck at cold-calling leads from a list? No problem. You can focus on generating your own leads online.
Is your budget a problem? An effective MLM coach can help you find free and inexpensive ways to generate targeted leads for your business.
The first question my MLM coach asked me was, “Why would anybody want to do business with you?”
It took me a while to figure out what he was getting at. The truth was, I had no value at that time. I knew next to nothing about lead generation, building relationships, or how to train someone after I recruited them.
Mind you, my MLM coach didn’t just come out and tell me what I needed to do. He asked me questions so that I could figure that out all on my own.
Another positive about having an MLM coach is accountability. This always reminds me of when I was in the US Army.
In basic training, I was terribly out of shape. The first day the Drill Sergeant said we were going to run two miles, I just knew there was no way on this planet that I could run that far.
After we started running, however, some of the heavier guys started dropping out. When they did, about ten Drill Sergeants pounced on them like fresh meat in the water. I was terrified.
I ran two miles that day, and every day thereafter.
Your MLM coach, while not a Drill Sergeant, will insist you take certain steps. If you show up to your coaching session and you haven’t completed your weekly tasks, he might decide not to waste his time with you any further.
That’s more of a motivator than you can imagine.
I found that having an MLM coach lessened my learning curve, and helped me to reach my goals faster.
It seemed there was almost nothing he didn’t know about, and I looked at him as a trusted advisor and friend.
My MLM coach taught me how to attract others to me. He made me understand that others needed what I was offering much more than I needed them to join my business.
Once I positioned myself like this, I found my phone ringing more and more, people wanting to know more about me and my business.
