How to Be successful in MLM

The spiritual side of marketing

Alright, MLMer, you’ve tried it all. You’ve read it all. And you’ve been to all the meetings. If you’ve attended all of the self help sessions you can stand, and read every motivational book out there, but still don’t have the results you are looking for, then you may want to try hooking the divine up with your efforts.

Keep the main thing the main thing

Is your life in balance? Do you have time with your family? How are your devotions each morning (prayer time, Bible time)? If you think you are lacking in these areas, work on them first. He promised us that He would add all of these things to us if we seek His kingdom first. But really, how many of us do that? Do we read His word? Do we spend time with Him in the morning? If you aren’t putting Him first, do that first.

ask God to bless your business and to show you a plan for your business.

So many people ask others for advice, but shouldn’t we go to God first…. and listen?  He promises He will be there to guide us if we seek Him with all our heart.

seek the scriptures for some light on your business situation (God speaks through His word)

It’s amazing how many times the Almighty will really speak a spot on word to us through His written word, if we just humble ourselves and expectantly search the scriptures.

knock–Put feet to your prayers and work the plan that God gives you

When, and only when you are confident God has put an actual business plan in your soul, go ahead and work that plan. Yes we can pray and read the scriptures, and yes we definitely need to make sure that our business has the right place in our lives. But at the end of the day, we need to “put feet to our prayers” and go out and make it happen. He promised to be with us each step of the way, if we put Him first.

What to look for in an MLM company

If you’ve been following this blog for any length of time, then you know that I am a Level 3 Director for Coastal Vacations. So you probably think that I am going to tell you that Coastal Vacations is “the” MLM that you should go for.

But that’s not true. For two reasons (actually, 3).

First of all, Coastal Vacations is not an MLM.  It’s members make money off of direct sales, not off of residual commissions. But that’s okay, because every single director makes at least $1000 per sale. Minimum.  Yes, the Coastal Opportunity pays phenomenal commissions to it’s directors.  At $1000+ per sale, it’s the best Network Marketing Opportunity I have ever seen. Which brings me to my next point:

Sales. As in, you have to sell. And this usually means selling on the phone. So unless you have a better way of promoting the product, or are willing to be trained on the phone, you shouldn’t join Coastal Vacations and expect to never use the phone.

Incidentally, fear of the phone is the NUMBER ONE source of anxiety with former Coastal Vacations Members. I know, because many of them contact me to re-sign up with my training program. Which brings me to my final point:

Don’t sign up for Coastal Vacations unless you sign up with a director who trains their people.
