Common Characteristics of MLM Leaders

Do MLM Leaders Know Something That You Do Not?

People look at  top MLM leaders and wonder if there are insider secrets only top producers are privy to. Is that the secret to their success? If that’s the case all you have to do is learn those magical secrets and you’re on your way to being a successful multilevel marketer.

But I have news for you. MLM leaders have no such thing. There is no “secret society” to which only leaders belong, wherein the secret sauce to building a money making mlm business is revealed.

They do however have some key characteristics in common which explain how they got to where they are right now. These characteristics have nothing to do with magical powers or traits that only the fortunate few will have in their makeup. Everyone has the ability to do what current mlm leaders have been able to do.

Characteristics Common to MLM Leaders

The Business is Not a Hobby

The most important characteristic and the one that is most critical to success is that they treat their home based mlm business just like a conscientious employee treats a job. They realize they must dedicate as much time and effort to their business as they would to a job. For most people a job is what pays their bills. For the entrepreneur, their job is their business and it has to be the income source that pays their bills!

MLM leaders are serious about success and never approach their businesses as a pastime or hobby. They know that hobbies cost money while businesses are supposed to make money.

Most mlm businesses don’t require a large investment of cash to get started which is why many people don’t take it very seriously. On the face of it, failing to make a go of it wouldn’t be catastrophic, so a lot of people are quite casual about it.

But leaders know that regardless of how large or small the initial investment, the business is their route to earning a substantial income. They are serious entrepreneurs who know it takes lots or work and a never say die attitude to earn that income. There is nothing casual about their approach to their businesses.

MLM Leaders are Organized and Systematic

They started their ventures with clear and realistic goals and then mapped out each step necessary to achieve those goals. The first thing they all do is dream the dream.

They visualize their ultimate goal, not just in terms of an annual income from the business, but from the point of view of what their life will be like when they reach the desired level of income. Then they put aside that dream and concentrate on laying out a strategy to get there.

Annual, quarterly, monthly and weekly goals and objectives are put down on paper. And then a daily action plan or daily method of operation is outlined and followed consistently. They invest in tools and training on a continuous basis.

Mlm leaders understand that success takes a substantial amount of time doing repetitious, often boring tasks to get the job done. They consistently follow the work plan over a sustained period of time and that is the secret to their success.

They are up early and to bed late. They do what needs to be done whether they feel like it or not. They are professionals.

MLM Leaders are Persistent

Most people are incapable of sustaining their efforts for long enough to see the desired results. They try one strategy or work hard for three weeks on their plan, but quickly either switch to a different strategy, or just slack off and eventually quit working entirely. They are just not patient enough to persevere long enough to see the results they want.

Moneymaking network marketing businesses can take years to build. Top producers know that when the right opportunity comes along they have to put all their efforts into it, over a long period in order to be successful at it. They know it takes work, that there will be ups and downs and they will make mistakes.  None of these hold them back or cause them to throw in the towel.

Though they technically work from home, most of them spend huge portions of their lives in hotel rooms, on the road or in the air. What they do may seem effortless to other people but they take every opportunity to build their businesses. They even dream about it and often wake in the morning with fresh ideas about ways to promote the business or do things differently.
Leaders Focus on Money Making Activities
The most outstanding leaders in mlm  understand that building a downline organization is the most critical aspect of earning a large passive income. Consequently they spend eighty to 90% of their time generating leads and following up with them.

MLM LeadersThey understand mlm is both a numbers game and a business built upon relationships. A steady flow of people to talk to about the products and opportunity is required to find enough people to build and maintain that downline organization. And of course, the commissions generated by that downline are what creates the income stream for the successful mlm leader.

In any business, if no products are sold, nobody makes any money. But you as an individual can sell only so many units. However, that large group of distributors in your organization can sell a ton of products, and even though you earn only a small percentage on each sale, your total income can be substantial.
That’s called leveraging the activities of other people and is the basis of the MLM business model. Leaders in any mlm company know exactly how to maximize the productivity of their downline organizations in order to earn top incomes.

What Does It Take To Be A Leader in MLM?

Everyone who starts an mlm home based business dreams of being one of those MLM leaders. The question is, do they have what it takes to do it. There are a few important points all such folks need to consider:

  • They must be prepared to do all the things a leader does as outlined above
  • A powerful dream or vision of what life will be like when success is achieved is critical
  • They must be prepared to commit up to 5 to living and breathing the business every day
  • A written business plan complete with goals and objectives is a must
  • They must commit to working a daily action plan over a sustained period of time to achieve their goals and their ultimate dream
  • A marketing plan for the products and the business opportunity must be developed and acted upon
  • They have to be prepared to provide training for the distributors in their organization
  • And much more

If all those things are in place, and the company is solid, there’s every chance of success provided that the budding entrepreneur does what the leaders in mlm always do.

The real secret to becoming one of the top MLM leaders is knowing how to be an entrepreneur. That means always focusing on marketing and business building and not letting roadblocks or problems they encounter divert them from doing what is needed to forge ahead.

They put together long range and short term plans and then work those plans on a daily basis. Their focus is always on the business and taking every opportunity to engage in lead generation and sponsoring new people into their organizations.

The best MLM leaders are very much focused on helping their team members succeed for one simple reason; unless the people in their organizations are successful and make money, they themselves will not succeed.

Have you got that burning desire to achieve success and be one of the leaders in your MLM company? If so, you would do well to take the advice in this article to heart.

And you’ll also need tools, training and support. Your upline may teach traditional MLM business building and that is important. But you’ll also need some mlm lead generation and prospecting help to integrate the traditional approach with internet marketing.
