Five Steps to Network Marketing Success

People join Nature’s Sunshine for a number of reasons, but they often stay because we offer a tremendous financial opportunity. We’ve helped thousands of individuals develop a thriving Nature’s Sunshine business capable of supplementing their income or even replacing their full-time work.

1. Be Coachable
Your group leader would love to share their knowledge with you to help you grow. Are you willing to listen? Accept the advice and instruction that they give. They’ll help you avoid common pitfalls, frustrations and other disappointments that could derail your business before you really get started.

2. Develop Dreams, Goals and Objectives
What are you working for? Most people don’t have a solid grasp of why they go to work. As a network marketer, you need to develop the big picture in your mind’s eye and set clear defined steps that will help you reach your dreams. Every time you face a challenge or get discouraged, remember that goal and let it inspire you to keep trying and not give up.

3. Be Consistently Persistent
A lot of people hold to the common misconception that network marketing is a get-rich-quick business. A successful network takes time to build, and unfortunately, many budding network marketers give up after a few short months because they haven’t made thousands of dollars yet. As a network marketer, realize that you need to be invested for the long haul and give your business time to mature and grow.

4. Work
Some people consider it a four-letter word, and those people will never succeed as a network marketer. Your success as a network marketer really boils down to how much work you put into your business. When you’re just starting out, most of your effort should go toward expanding your network: making contacts, signing up new members and following up with people you meet.

5. Make a Million Friends
As a network marketer, your focus should be on your people, not on your bonus check. Rather than set a goal to make a million dollars, set a goal to recruit a million people to your group. With network marketing, you help yourself by helping others. Forget about what you want or need and focus on helping the new people that you bring into your group. Once your group is in place, the income will follow.

If you’re interested in more information on these steps, read the entire article here:

We’re coming up on the holiday season and you’ll be in touch with more people than usual. Have your business card ready to hand out and keep NSP on your mind as you hear people mention health problems. All you have to do is share, not sell. Give your experiences, tell of others (without their name for privacy), and the products will sell themselves.

Your business is just that — YOURS. So find what works for you and stick with it to reach all of your goals.

It is broken into four main sections: disease overviews, treatment options, drug information (includes information on prescription drugs, over the counter drugs, herbs and nutritional supplements) and clinical trials.

Wikipedia is a free online encyclopedia and has become the largest reference source on the Internet. Type in the name of an herb, supplement, health condition, etc., and you will be guided to entries with extensive information. One word of caution: Anyone with computer access to Wikipedia can edit the entries. As a result, the entries are quite up to date, but there can also be significant misinformation.

This website contains information about the supplement industry as well as herbs, vitamins and homeopathic remedies. It also has a link to an online version of the Dietary Supplement Information Bureau’s publication, Field Guide to Herbal Dietary Supplements.
