I’m sure that if you’re reading this article, you’re one of the thousands of people that is thinking about starting a home based business. Or perhaps you’ve already started one and are looking to grow more. Maybe you’re struggling to get leads for your business. No matter what your reason for reading this, I’ve got some tips that will help you generate more home based business leads.
For many of us in this economy, we’ve turned to a home based business, specifically a network marketing or MLM business, to try and either create a secondary income or even go full-time and replace our income or start fresh. You’ve made the right decision, but I know that you may not necessarily know the next steps to take or you may be frustrated with your results so far. I’m sure you understand that getting leads into your business is one of the most important activities you can do on a daily basis. As a matter of fact, you really should spend most of your time on generating more leads for your business.
But, how do you do that the right way? What methods work the best? Which ones should you avoid?
Here’s 5 things you need to know about generating home based business leads that will help you out and move your business forward to new levels.
Thing #1 – You need new leads every day if you’re going to be successful
No matter what anyone tells you, you’ve got to be generating leads on a daily basis if you’re going to be successful. Of course, you can’t stop there, but if you’re not generating leads every day, your business will NOT move forward.
Thing #2 – Most of the leads you get will NOT join your business
I know you’ve heard people say that people will just be beating down your door to join, but that’s simply not the case. I want you to be prepared when you hear the word “no” because you’re going to hear it a lot. A LOT. Don’t get discouraged, just keep moving forward.
Thing #3 – You’ve got to go out and get leads, most won’t come to you
When you’re just starting out, leads will probably NOT be beating down your door to join you. Over time, as you build your reputation and start having some success, this will happen to some degree. But when you’re starting out, you’re going to have to do a lot of grunt work to get leads in your business.
Thing #4 – You will want to give up and quit
This is just a fact. I’m not trying to be a downer here, but I want you to know the truth. Too many people have candy-coated the home based business lifestyle and given you an unclear picture. When you’re getting started and trying to get leads, you will get frustrated, you will want to give up. You will want to quit. Don’t. One of my mentors said that he never knew anyone that won or failed with network marketing. He only knew people that didn’t give up and those that did. Don’t give up, because there’s something in the next thing that will make you happy…
Thing #5 – If you persevere and generate leads, you will be successful.
I’ve seen it happen too many times. If you’re willing to stick to it, go out and get leads and then talk to them about your business, you will find success. it’s inevitable. It can’t be avoided. You just have to be willing to go through the work to get to that point.
