Daily Method of Operation for Network Marketers
One of the hardest things to watch in our industry are those with massive dreams, giving up. There are a variety of reasons people end up quitting and almost all of which are avoidable. What we mean by this is that, more often than not people give up because their lack of results. And these lack of results can almost always be tied back to not using a daily method of operation.
In case you are not totally familiar with this phrase, let’s have a deeper look.
Those that embrace the daily habits that generate revenue are much more likely to succeed than those who do not. As a network marketer, it is your job to show up consistently to build an audience and deliver them value.
Daily Method of Operation Breakdown
Think of what your day looks like at the office or even just in a more traditional job type setting. There is typically a routine or timeline you follow once you start your day, right? Although the specifics might vary, the overall process exists.
A retail store daily method of operation might include;
- Key holder: opening the store
- Turning on the lights, music, etc.
- Stocking inventory and shelves
- Opening the cash register
- Greeting customers as they enter the store
… etc. Day in and day out the routine stays pretty much the same. And although this may feel tedious if you are the one going through the motions, please know that this turnkey model is why retail stores function like a well-oiled machine.
It is predictable, associates and management alike know what to expect and, consumers are greeted with a feeling of familiarity and comfort. Have you ever noticed that although you may walk into a Ralph Lauren store in New York the vibe and energy feels the same as walking into one in Kentucky?
A solid Daily Method of Operation can be responsible for the consumer feelings, and that is powerful stuff.
3 Phases to Consider for your Daily Method of Operation
Regardless of how you decide to structure your daily method of operation, the end goal is always the same – Results. And, it’s important to evaluate where you are in your business presently to help you identify where your focus should be.
For example, someone who already has a large team may have a phase one goal geared to leading versus someone just getting started may include comfort zones. Below, we are going to outline for you the 3 most common phases and hope you won’t waste any time to implement them.
Phase One: Mindset
Whether you start your day with a morning devotional or an inspiring video on YouTube do not overlook feeding your mind. Beginning your day focusing on your mindset can help dictate the rest of your day. Find something that you enjoy doing;
… and so on. Even beginning your day with 15 minutes and closing your day the same way can be a huge game changer. When your head is in it – everything else falls into place.
Pro Tip: Make a list each morning of 3-5 things you are grateful for. Stick them on a post-it-note and refer to it as many times as you need to throughout your day. These are great pick me ups and we believe they will come in handy on the days you need them the most.
Phase Two: Skillset
Included in your daily method of operation should also be time to work on a skillet. As an example if you are focused on the skillset of relationship building, spend the first 10-15 minus learning/brushing up on it and the balance implementing it.
Knowledge is only power once its applied so we cannot stress this piece enough. Please stop wasting all your precious time learning and forgetting to implement. They both need each other.
Pro Tip: Make notes on the tips and tricks you are learning and share them on a live video. You can also share how you went about implementing what you learned and walk your audience through how they can too!
Phase Three: Developing Content
Get into the habit of creating content or documenting ideas, daily. One of the most common obstacles network marketers experience is having content to share. Get into the habit of making content you can use daily. This will also help you get ahead for the days you are equipped with less time.
Even a simple trip to the grocery store can help generate content for;
- Narrative Post
- Facebook Live
- YouTube Video
- Facebook or Instagram Story
… to name a few.
Pro Tip: Keep an ongoing log or note section around the house, in a bag or purse, in your car, etc. and make sure you are adding to them every day. Additionally, use your ‘on-the-go’ notes for the times outside of your DMO time. Always make sure you are spending at least 10-15 minutes a day both brainstorming and/or creating content.
If you are not used to working with a daily method of operation, yes – all three phases may take some getting used to. However, once they have become part of your everyday, you won’t be able to imagine your business life without them!
