An effective gardener knows that planting just one seed in a field of fertile soil is not going to be enough, especially if they are making a substantial living off of their crops. On the contrary, an effective gardener is well aware of the fact that he or she will need to plant as many seeds as possible within the plant of land in order to make sure that they have a flourishing harvest over time. The same principle applies to the garden of MLM Network Marketing as well. How so?
More Than Just One Seed
There are too many people that are currently working within the world of MLM that base their businesses on one particular marketing seed. They may have been able to experience a significant amount of success by simply focusing on one particular method of marketing in the past and refuse to try anything different. Well, those particular professionals are just like the gardener that decides to plant a single seed in a field. Even though that one seed may grow into a massive tree, you will still be selling yourself short because there is still a massive amount of space in which you can still grow your business.
The Advantages of Social Media
The digital age and advanced technology have made it much easier to communicate and stay connected with people today than ten years ago. Social media platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, have been able to captivate the attention and engagement of hundreds of millions of people around the world. If you are interested in maximizing exposure and your overall growth potential within your MLM organization, then you need to be planting seeds within the world of social media as well.
The Value of Follow-Up
Do not become one of the MLM gardeners that plant a lot of seeds but never return to follow through with them. If a traditional gardener never watered the seeds that they planted, what will be the end result? Will they have a flourishing harvest? Of course not! Make sure that you are maintaining a detailed record of the seeds that you plant and closely monitor their growth in order to make sure that your efforts and resources are not being wasted. Follow up on your marketing seeds to make sure that they are growing beautifully and bountifully over time as they should, making any necessary adjustments accordingly.
Consistency is Key
Never forget about the value of consistency when it comes to growing your MLM business. Just because you planted a lot of seeds today do not necessarily mean that you can stop marketing tomorrow. You cannot become a hit-and-miss MLM gardener and expect the crop of your organization to flourish over time; this just does not make any sense whatsoever. Do your very best to stay consistent, planting as many seeds as you can in as many different areas of your fertile field as possible in order to create the biggest harvest. Doing so is the key to your long-term success.
It’s your turn!
Are you seed planting in your business? If so, what results have you achieved from seed planting? Please share your feedback in the comments section below and I look forward to reading them!
Consistency – amen.
Far too many people get excited, find out something they want to do, do it for a bit and then just give up or fade away!
Pick a method, and someone, somewhere has built a business that way. But you’ve got to stick with it, track your results, and get better and better at it!
I truly believe there aren’t Failures in MLM – there are Quitters
Right on Jon! Love the comments!
I agree with you that we should not put all our eggs in one basket. Diversification is what enables us to make money even when one avenue is failing.
Exactly. Thanks Susan! 🙂
This is a GREAT analogy today for MLM marketing!
Staying current with technology and social media platforms is a must. Not putting all your eggs into one basket is just “smart” business management (like) smart investing practices.
Follow through, persistence and consistency also makes for a prosperous and flourishing business!

Thanks again.If you focus on more than one seed then you are using the idea of the numbers game to your advantage.
Awesome. Thanks Jason!
Marketers have to invest time and attention every day. And having a variety of ways to market is important too.
Love the article, Nate!
Awe, thank you Pam! 🙂
Of all of these I’m learning that consistency has the most power because eventually your good habit can lead you to your goals.
Hi Greg – Consistency is everything. Do something little each day and stay consistent. Thank you for the comments!
Yes, Nate. I have been busy planting seeds in my business as well. Consistency is definitely the key to success. The results have been more customers and more “buzz” about my business. Thanks for the great article! All the best.
Awesome. Thank you Jeanne!
I agree consistency is the key.. awesome read Nate!
I tell people this business is nothing more than turning over rocks. You just keep turning over rocks. Sometimes there is nothing under the rock. Sometimes a little piece of copper. Once in a while you will find silver. And on a few rare occasions you will find gold. It really is a numbers game. You just have to stay at it and expose your products and business to enough people, to find the right people. Just my two cents.
