The REAL Maths of Network Marketing Exposed – The Diamond in the Rough!
The Real Maths of Network Marketing They Were Too Scared To Tell You!
By now you’ve all seen the maths of network marketing? The exponential growth?
You know… recruit 5, who recruit 5 – that becomes 25! Duplicate – it becomes 125 and again and it becomes 625 and on and on it goes.
You also know in the REAL world, it never works out like that! You might only recruit 3, two of whom drop out and the third only recruits 2 and so it imperfectly goes on!
But you KNOW THIS! It just proves the model isn’t perfect – but it still works – right?
Say ‘yes Robin – it’s right’!
But here’s the REAL maths of Network Marketing they forget to mention…
(I never understand why they forget this… but hey… I’m redressing the balance now!)
To become wealthy in network marketing the magic number you need to remember is…(drum roll please!)
Yep, that’s it… just FIVE!
Five what Robin?
Great question – glad you asked!
Five ‘Diamonds in the rough’ – that’s what!
Five people in your team that are total diamond geezers! i.e. Diamonds in the rough – i.e. LEADERS!
It doesn’t matter whether or not you have 5 people in your team. 500 hundred people in your team or 5,000 people in your team.
These 5 ‘Diamonds in the rough’ will make themselves and YOU very wealthy!
But how long does it take to find your 5?
Well, you might be lucky! You could sign one up in your first month! It might take you a year! Yikes… it might even take you TWO years!
The point is, it’s not predictable. You just know that your GOAL is to find them, nurture them, work with them and let them do their magic! Just like you are doing yours!! (btw… if you get this… really get this… you MUST be ONE of those DIAMONDS in the making! – yes?)
You ask ANY leader in ANY network marketing company and they will confirm what I’m telling you… that their fortunes really took off when they found their first ‘Diamonds in the rough’!
What exactly do I mean by a ‘Diamond in the Rough’?
Well, it’s not always immediately obvious who they are! If you are lucky they are an existing MLM leader who has retired from one company and moved into yours and maybe brought their team with them. But that’s rare, can be very lucky for you and is also fraught with dangers as well as potential gains.
No, what I’m talking about are people who just ‘get it’! People who are either natural leaders OR turn themselves into one!
They understand what MLM is. They understand what they have to do to make it work AND they take MASSIVE ACTION to make it happen!
And they just keep going…. and going… and going…
In time they identify themselves as top recruiters, top trainers, top leaders in their company. The go for and win the incentives. AND they run the duplicatable systems that guarantee their downline is going to grow irrespective of whether they are there or not – you don’t want them to be indispensible – that’s no good.
Now these ‘Diamonds in the rough’ could have begun as a humble housewife who joined to earn some pin money. They could be a business person with a portfolio of successful business’s behind them.
The problem is, until they join, get trained and go to work… you just can’t tell!
It’s their ACTIONS, not their words or their past deeds that identifies them to you!
Eventually, when you see their downline growing and their income (and yours!) growing as a result you will realise they are the real deal! And then you have FOUND your first one!
Now you’ll be looking around for numbers 2,3,4 and 5!
By the time you have 5 – our magic number! You are going to be a VERY happy bunny indeed! (passes you a gold carrot)
In my last article, I talked about how 95% of people who join an MLM drop out! Leaving just 5% who do something. Of those, possibly as few as 2% actually do well. And… if you’re lucky… very, very, very lucky…1% will be your ‘Diamond in the rough’!
In other words, for every 100 people who join your team, ONE could be your ‘Diamond’!
So if you want 5, you need a team of maybe 500 people!
But, as I said at the start of this article. The maths is not exact! It might be you need to build a team (via duplication – you don’t have to recruit them all by yourself – obvs!) of 500 to find your 5, or a 1,000 or even 5,000 before you can clearly identify the 5 leaders in your team!
Ask your top leaders in your upline to be honest with you. How many ‘Diamonds in the rough’ have they found? Out of how many in their team? I have no clue what they will say! So it will be a fascinating exercise! (post your answers below!).
But I am CERTAIN they will NOT tell you they found all 5 in their first 5 signups or even their first 100 signups!
Key Takeaway One:
You are looking for just 5 Leaders in your downline to be successful in your MLM. It truly is a numbers business.
Key Takeaway Two:
Play the long game in MLM – It takes time to find those ‘Diamonds in the rough’ – keep duplicating your recruiting and training – and wait for them to emerge!
Remember, if you want change in your life….
The Change Begins With YOU!
