The allure of MLM and network marketing in general lies in the fact that so many of the sales pitches focus on how you can earn additional money in your spare time while still holding down your full time job. What these pitches don’t allude to is how this “additional money” is oftentimes less than $200 per month – an amount that many people don’t see worth the initial time and investment. Despite this there have been numerous successful people in MLM who have managed to build up their MLM business while only working at it part time, but be warned that doing this will require extreme effort, time management and motivation on your end.
Formulate a plan for your time to build your MLM Network Marketing business
Having excellent time management skills is one of the greatest qualities you will need when attempting to build an MLM business while only working on it part-time. Because you are only going to have at most 2-3 hours per day to devote towards your MLM efforts, you better be darned sure those 2-3 hours per day are spent doing things that are productive towards your MLM efforts.
With the people that you talk to daily and if you are planning on building on the internet and your website are going to be your primary source of leads it’s important to devote at least 70% of your time towards generating new and relevant content for your website, creating new videos, releasing free demo products to capture email leads, and finally capturing leads through the use of a squeeze page and an autoresponder.
Develop a Routine and stick to it to build your MLM Network Marketing business
Developing a routine and sticking to that routine once you implement it into your daily life is crucial when it comes to building up a MLM business when you only have a few hours per day to devote towards building that business. If you work from 9-5 and don’t get home till 6:00, and you generally go to bed at 11:30, this leaves you with five and a half hours of “free time” between returning from work and going to bed. This assumes you don’t have time to work on your MLM efforts in the morning, considering most people barely have enough time for personal hygiene, getting coffee and running out the door.
Using my formula above, you should develop a system that sees you working on your MLM company during the same times each evening. Perhaps you work straight through from 6:00 to 8:00, or perhaps you need to help with kids, cooking dinner and housework, which only gives you time to work after 9:00 until bedtime. No matter what times you choose it’s important to stick with the routine each and every day.
While social media and social networking websites are great avenues for lead generation when used correctly, all too often people become entranced by the latest cat videos or funny meme websites and then they find themselves totally disconnected from their work. Remember that nobody ever said working from home would be easy. It takes dedication and self-discipline to stay with the course.
