Staying productive in day to day operations is important in network marketing, and today I’m going to share what has always worked for me in the past.
Day to Day Method to stay Productive!
So diving into it, the way that I first started was I would come up with three things that I had to do every day and that was I did a video every day, 20 no’s a day, and I did personal development every day.
I remember having a discussion, and it was actually on a cruise, and I was sharing some of the things that I do each day and one guy raises his hand and was like, “Hey, does this mean you work all day every day?” Because that’s what some people think, right?
And so I said, “Well, there are lots of days where I do my daily routine and I take the rest of the day off and I go kayaking and I go to the beach, I go movies or whatever else.” The only difference between me and most people is there are definitely days I have low production days.
But, there are no days I have no production days.
And in network marketing land, no production days mean you didn’t ask anybody if they were open to your product, service or opportunity, whether it was a new person or whether it was a follow-up.
Stay Productive Daily
If you aren’t asking people, “Are you open to take a look,” then you aren’t doing your job. Your job is not to make beautiful flyers. It’s not to call people in your team to fire them up. It’s not just to train and just to do self-development and watch videos.
Your job is to ask other human beings if they’re interested in your product, service or opportunity. And that’s what makes you productive, and as soon as you step out of that, everything else starts to fall apart.
So my suggestion would be to come up with a number of no’s to hit daily (20 is a little intense for some, so go with a reasonable number), and work towards it.
That is number one. There is nothing else that can trump talking to people and asking them if they’re interested.
Another thing I mentioned I did, that would be beneficial for a lot of people, would be some type of self-development daily.
Some ideas of self-development:
- Read a chapter of a book
- Walk around the neighborhood while listening to a podcast or audiobook
- Go do some exercise
- Do activities that push your limits.
So it’s important to not only work and prospect but to also take care of yourself.
However, although self-development is important, prospecting and talking to people daily is the number one way to stay productive in network marketing.
