#1 Be Coachable.
Sounds simple enough, right? And yet for some reason this is among one of the biggest obstacles new network marketing professionals face. Some let the start, stop them. Others feel that their way is better. Then there are people who for whatever reason prefer to be master note takers and apply very little if anything at all.

#3 Use your Time Wisely
Although all the tips we share today are important, this is among one of the top network marketing tips for success. We know, that many people are choosing to build their businesses via social media, right? Where the difficulty lies is just because you are scrolling on Facebook or Instagram (or other) this is not an income producing activity. We are not suggesting you don’t enjoy your timeline here and there but what we are suggesting is that you schedule the time in to be productive.
If you schedule an hour into your day to use Facebook effectively for your business, stick to that. This means, that you want to be posting and engaging with intention. Now, the intention may be to initiate new relationships, reach out to new prospects, create a Facebook Live, etc. Don’t get caught in the scroll game — it won’t pay you.

#4 Be Consistently Persistent
Quick (scary) fact for you: Most network marketing careers, last 89 days. Why? Because people get in don’t earn thousands their first month and they quit. Remember, you are here for the long run. You have been exposed to and given access to an entire business for next to nothing. And, the only thing stopping you from a successful business is because you gave up too soon. That’s it believe it or not.
Make a decision that you are in this long term. Because let’s look at it this way …
If you knew that if you committed to 3-5 years of consistency and being persistent in yourself and your work habits that you could earn thousands of dollars a month would you stick with it?
Guess what? You have access to this — in fact, if you follow even only these network marketing tips everyday, you are practically guaranteed those results. So, stick with it.

Read the last of these network marketing tips out loud to yourself. Write it down, take it to heart. This industry is built upon relationships so start acting like that is what you are out there to do. When you focus on improving, enhancing or impacting the lives of others, the income will follow.

Or, think about that college kid you are able to impact with an extra $1000 a month to pay off his student loans. Maybe it’s the couple you can prevent from having to claim bankruptcy with an extra $500 a month (those are real facts too).
