A network marketing coach is a concept that is unfamiliar to many network marketers. Unfortunately many of these same individuals are struggling needlessly in their businesses, when much of their difficulty could be eliminated with the help of a good coach. While coaching is understood in other segments of our society, coaching in the multi level marketing profession is just as important.
There are really many skill sets which can be developed and enhanced through good training, but today I want to really address the three fundamental places where I believe a great network marketing coach can make all the difference in the world for your business. These key focus areas are mindset, marketing and multiplication. They are truly foundational to the long term success of your MLM business.
Mindset deals with your mental aspects of your business. This includes such things as your goals, commitment and overall attitude towards your business. A good network marketing coach will begin by helping you clarify the “why” of your business. By helping you lock in on the motivating reason for undertaking your business in the first place, they will ultimately help you form a mental picture of that preferred outcome. Good coaching forces you to continually clarify, sharpen and refine that ultimate destination, so that you are able to clearly articulate your motivations to anyone at any time. They will also assist you in setting short term goals for your business.
The marketing aspect of your coaching deals specifically with the business building activities that are necessary to grow a successful business. Your network marketing coach will evaluate the needs of your business in light of your strengths and weaknesses. A good coach will seek to further develop your current strengths, while at the same time adding new skill sets into the mix. In today’s market place it is preferable if you can receive coaching from someone who is familiar with both offline and online business building strategies. Your coach should regularly assess the results of your business building activities with you and make recommendations to improve on the effectiveness of your efforts.
The final area of focused coaching is in the area of multiplication. The residual income component of your network marketing business is the true power source for your long term success. The ability to tap into this power source depends heavily upon your abiliity to recruit and sponsor others into your business, while teaching them to reproduce those same outcomes in their own business as well. Your network marketing coach should be working with you consistently on your recruiting and training skills. They should be helping you evaluate your sponsoring efforts each month and helping you to formulate a plan for improving the overall effectiveness of your sponsoring activities. Additionally they should be helping you to develop a training system that will help you to create reproduction throughout your MLM downline.
To find a great network marketing coach, begin with your upline or other successful distributors in your company. Most of these individuals are more than willing to help coach you in your business, you simply need to take the initiative and ask. These individuals are ideal, because they are also familiar with you company, products and systems. There are also many great coaches who make themselves available to the industry as a whole. Some of the coaches will charge for their time, but their investment in your business will be well worth the cost of their services.
Remember even the best athletes still utilize coaching to continually build on their skills and abilities. By applying this same principle to your business, you are unlocking the door to greater opportunity in your life. Don’t overlook the difference a great network marketing coach can make.
