Your Business At Home: “Why Network Marketing? Donald’s Trump’s Response”

November 23, 2009

As stated in my previous post, we have a PDF of the actual magazine article below in our “Resource Library,” but it’s also easy to find online from many sites, including the link below. I’m not a big fan of the morals of The Ego (my imitation of “The Donald“), but you can’t criticize his work ethic, nor the interest and attention his name brings.

Why Network Marketing? Donald’s Trump’s Response

Your Business At Home, March 2007, Volume 2 Issue 2

Marketing is a powerful tool, and network marketing can increase that power, provided you’re self-motivated. In a simple visual, see a product and remove the advertising agency from it. It’s up to you to do the marketing and advertising.

That’s a big job, but it can be done if you’re passionate enough to get going on your own, and to keep the momentum and motivation going at a high level. It requires an entrepreneurial spirit, and that means focus and perseverance. I don’t recommend network marketing to people who are not highly self-motivated.

Another important aspect of network marketing is that it’s inherently social, so if you’re not a social or outgoing person, I’d think twice about going into it. Sociability is a requirement.

Just like in advertising, there’s no point in having a fantastic advertising campaign if the product is unequally fantastic. Also, keep in mind that if you decide to become a distributor, you’ll be legally responsible for the claims you make about the product, the company and the available opportunities. But above all, make sure the product is worth your energy and total devotion. Otherwise, you could be energetically spinning your wheels.

Robert mentions the importance of going beyond your comfort zone when it comes to network marketing. He also mentions giving yourself enough time. These are good points to consider. I agree that leadership qualities are critical for success. You definitely have to have a take charge, can-do attitude.

As with any other undertaking, know everything you can about what you’re doing before you began. Network marketing has proven itself to be a viable and rewarding source of income, and the challenges could be just right for you. There have been some remarkable examples of success, and those successes have been earned through diligence, enthusiasm and the right product combined with timing. As with so many issues, there are tangibles and the intangibles involved, but success is not a total mystery, and that applies to network marketing, as well.

Most people have heard of focus groups, a research tool advertising agencies use. When they’re testing a new product they go to different locations and simply ask everyday people what they like and don’t like about new product. It’s best if you can keep the focus group idea close at hand when deciding about a product. Just because you like it doesn’t mean everyone else will. Finding a common denominator in product appeal will matter.

My advice about network marketing is to do your research, and put everything you’ve got into your product. Genuine enthusiasm is hard to beat, and the odds will be with you.

    What a impressive post! I did a kind of blogging for dummies over on one of the CPA Marketing forums and I thought it was too easy for them, but the number of emails I got asking questions just like what you addressed was unbelievable. As young people today we have grown up with computers, but it’s easy to forget that even individuals just a a couple of years older have not! Really good post! 🙂
