double MLM paycheck

I can hear the screaming now…

The self-help gurus and MLM leaders aren’t going to like it but the truth is the truth.

Leadership, as currently touted in MLM, is not only dramatically over-rated… it’s harmful.

Imagine a new person just signed up with you and they plug into all these rousing leadership speeches.

It creates fear.


80% or more is linked to nonsense that does not apply to networking and the other 20% is linked to the leaders’ volume, pin level and years in the business.

And Sally, your new sign up, is overwhelmed.

But what will they follow if they don’t follow the big hitter?


All you have to do is lead them to the next step both effectively and efficiently.

How to double an MLM Paycheck

There’s an old saying in MLM.  As soon as we reclaim our common sense, our paycheck doubles.

I’m not sure it’s true.  My experience is that it more than doubles.

What behavior does Sally, your new rep, need to engage in with you to build her confidence?

It’s a multiple choice – an easy one for you and a great reminder for me.

  1. Learn John Maxwell’s Leadership Principles?
  2. Listen to the top earners who’ve been doing this for 10 or 20 years and love talking about themselves and leadership?
  3. Learn everything about the plan, product and company like ‘leaders’ do?
  4. Talk to people and earn some money?

If we are going to make some money, we need to talk to people.   That’s common sense and it’s pay raise. BOOM!

All you have to do is make calls with them, teach them the network marketing skills that get a ‘yes’, and repeat until they master it.

A very simple 3-step tip here, and it’s huge…

STEP 1 – find out what Sally desires and help her engage in the 1 behavior that will create paychecks.   The problem with the blow-hards talking about leadership is that they always talk about results.  This is a massive mistake.  And I can prove it, (previous post).

Sally is looking to you, not the plan, product, company or leaders she hears on conference calls (for goodness sake, limit her to a max of 1 month that you choose… not her)

She’s looking to you.   She won’t tell you but bank it as a truth that will make you wealthy.  So lead by teaching her the skills hands on.   The cool thing?   It’s the only leading you ever have to do.   Lead by example, demonstrating the only income producing, goal advancing behavior in the MLM biz.

Influence is everything. Focus on behaviors, not results.
Influence is everything. Focus on behaviors, not results.

And when she does, if you’ll focus on her desires and link them to the behavior she must engage in to obtain her objective, you’ll become a top 5% producer in MLM.

Sally is now ‘influenced’ by you and ready to make calls with you.

STEP 2 – Be prepared.  Getting a ‘yes’ 80+% of the time is a skill.   Everybody knows we simply cannot teach what we do not know.  You’ve got to learn and demonstrate the skills.

STEP 3 – repeat.  Go through the same process with Sally’s new people and Sally listening.  Soon you become a group of people helping people learn the skills hands on.  And new people joining will, as I said, ‘copy’ the behavior of the group to gain acceptance.  This is a pretty simple skill that ensures duplication.

Without question, by focusing on Sally’s desire and linking that to behaviors, not results, will gain influence, all you have to do is execute.

Did your upteam make calls with you?

Teach you the skills?

Work with your personals?

And their personals?

Would it have made a difference?

No matter.

What matters is that you do it because it’s you that is going to be the difference, in the end, in Sally’s success.

Want more common sense… and a pay raise?   Grab these video skills, scheduled for the 11th of October a day early.

  • Mark- The “Light” that went on for me with this piece was how truely simple this business is as long as you have BELIEF/ TRUST and an outstanding Vehicle. Thanks for focus…

  • Mark,

    Thanks for the good words…. couldn’t agree more.

    I use “join.Me” when I HAVE to do it over the phone, but much
    prefer to do the presentation in person. In-person does control
    everything, alleviates any confusion, which you are aware of in
    a ‘face to face’, but harder to catch over the phone.

    Thanks again, Mahalo Nui Brudda !

  • So many times when just starting I was overwhelmed by listening to many different people..Just was a confusing mess. Now I am DUPLICATABLE! I only say what I need ..short and sweet…details come later after they sign! Works so much better! Thanks Mark for all you do! LK

    We’ve posted the value of a screen share as a ‘decent’ alternative to face to face. [previous post]

    You are so dead center about ‘confustion’ …..and doing a screen share or F-2-F which a prospect and a new rep is tremendous leverage…enrolling and training at the same time.

    I love you capatialize “HAVE” …..F-2-F is a hands down winner, you get it!

    Simple works…..the trouble with most MLMers, and it was sure trouble with me in the beginning… what we think is simple and what a newbie thinks is simple are often 2 entirely different things.

    We tell people keep it simple…..then we complicate it. 🙂

    My lovely wife, The Fabulous Davene, has a rule about ‘duplication’ [which is just a 4 syllable word for copy]

    Here it is: If a 10 year old can’t do it, DON’T DO IT!

    Obviously, you ‘get it’ …..and are on your way to massive checks.

  • Mark, I love that you know the truth. And everything you share is simple common sense as you mentioned.
    The Universal Mind is just waiting for us to tap into the source of all power within and you make it clear and simple.
    BTW, I put out into the universe that I wanted the book “The Influencer” about a month ago and I found the book at a used book store for 8 bucks!! Steal!
    Now I can read along with my version.
    See you in April! 2013

  • I was pitched today by someone who used a ‘private’ screen share program he was pitching. [funny how that works] He did a great job by the way. I couldn’t see why I’d buy it given the availability of the same technology that’s free. He was convinced people would use it because it would produce income… [for him by the way] His own numbers indicated 90% quit or made no money, month after month… What industry are we in? For far too many it’s suck the life out of those susceptible to ‘powerful leadership’ who do far more harm than good.

    Thank you Mark for making my life better!

  • getting checks is not considered the most IMPORTANT, i am told to learn about the products, plan, demo etc.for atleast one year. and true to your word, my LOS is pretty empty. 0 PV is a common phenomenon, we are adding more more every month.and the next month new people. old people just vanish into thin air.
    the best part is the leader in my group is ensuring his long time downline(his best rep) gets check every month a fat check indeed. people down the LOS get the start up checks maximum and they are gone forever.MLM FLAW is definitely a phenomenon, retailing is not done with the rep, but in fact it is hidden from the rep. and the PV is manipulated or diverted to suit their plan. hardly anybody does retailing in the whole group of 32 people, but the leaders do retailing regularly to the same group of people.

  • Mark, thanks for keeping it real. I have learned more from you in the last year than just about anyone else!
