I wanted to talk about productivity in network marketing. I love how Ray Higdon
says that it's okay to have a low production week but it's not okay to have a
no production week in network marketing. So what does that mean?
Well it basically means that for me, I always look at your network marketing business, like a shop. So if you had a corner shop, if you had a grocery store and you didn't roll up the shutters in the morning, then how much money could you expect to make at the end of that day? And if you are not insane, your answer should be zero. Since you haven't opened the shutters clearly nobody can come into your shop and buy anything. So same way I look at your network marketing business. If you haven't opened your mouth today and spoken to anybody about your business or about your products, that means your network marketing shop was closed today, your network marketing business was closed today.
So you cannot expect then to earn any money. So if you're prospecting, if the amount of people that you speak to about your business in a week's time is less than 10 then you’re just not serious about growing your network marketing business, you just not serious about making money in this business. We have a group of business partners called millionaires in training and their goal is to do a minimum of five contacts a day, on social media, and then a couple face to face. But then again, that's a baseline level of activity, which means minimum level of activity. Most of them do a lot more than that. They do maybe 10 contacts a day, 15 contacts a day, 20 contacts a day, some of them are very committed and they will do 50, 60 contacts a day in order to grow their network marketing business because not every person that you reach out to on social media or face to face not every person will respond to you, not every person will be interested etcetera. You know that you can only control your activity you can't control your results.
So the more people you reach out to, the more results you're going to get. My personal goal is also to reach out to 50 to 150 people a day. So on a good day I might reach out to like 150 people on a not so good day, if I'm super busy, then I might just do maybe 40, 50 a day. But the idea is that that's ideal world and it's not always going to be like that, so some days you are traveling to another country or some days things just happen in your life where you got swamped with activity.
But what I want you to think always is that there should be no days of no activity; so it's okay to have a low activity but it shouldn't be a day with no activity. So you might have a super crazy day. But at least you sent five messages so that you can go to bed in the evening thinking I still did something for my business, you know what I mean? Maybe you just message one team member today instead of five, maybe you just ask one person to take a look at your product or whatever but you then at the end of the day, you feel that you haven't wasted that day, that you still did something to grow your business.
So it doesn't mean that as a network marketer, you should be grinding day in day out, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Yeah, if you have a huge goal, if you want to have a breakthrough maybe for a short period of time, yes, you have to really go at it. Like Eric Wore trains their recruiting 20 people in 30 days where you have to do like 16 hour days of intense work to really have that lift off because Eric Wore talks about the airplane, when the airplane is on the runway, if you just do 50% acceleration, airplane is not going to take off, if you do 60 is not going to take off, if you do 80, it's still not going to take off, you have to go hundred percent to take off the runway to get the airplane off the ground but you don't have to go the hundred percent all of the way through until you get the destination because you’re just going to burn through the fuel. So once the airplane is in the air, you can go, “Woo.” Put it on the cruise control a little bit, but then if you want to take it to the next level, guess what, again, you have to increase the throttle.
So same in your network marketing business, in order to take off, you might do some intensive work for some short period of time, but you're not going to go 16 hour days for the rest of your life because you’ll just burn out, but what I mean is that you should always do at least something to push your business forward, to put at least something into the business, to roll that shatter up at least a little bit.
So that's my message for today. Low activity is much better than no activity. Do not ever accept no activity from yourself. You should never allow yourself to have a day of no activity towards the business because I believe, especially now with social media, there's no excuse. I've been reading Frazer Brookes, I dare you and I love his toilet technique. So he goes every time you’re on the toilet, you should be with your phone in hand reaching out to some people. So he goes, the only thing you shouldn't do, you shouldn't go live while you're on the toilet, but a part of that you can send some messages, you can interact with other people, you can reach out to some people as you on a toilet and it doesn't take much, it doesn't take a lot of time, it’s just few minutes. So you should always do at least some activity in your business. So that's my message for today.
