Jenny Fletcher   My Press Releases

Do you have the passion and dedication to succeed?

I learned a lesson yesterday in what can happen if you never lose sight of a goal. What most network marketers want is success and everything that comes with it. We want to see the results of our hard work in our bank balances and in our email - notifications every day about new people joining our businesses or enquiring about them. 

What I was watching was a guy called Stuart Bingham winning his way through to the World Snooker final against Judd Trump at the Crucible in Sheffield, UK. I had already watched Stuart a few days earlier battling top player Ronnie O'Sullivan but had not seen the end of the match. When I left it, O'Sullivan looked confident that he was on his way to another title, but Stuart was also looking determined. I learned later that he had won and that this was the pinnacle of more than 20 years dedicated hard work as a professional player. 

As I write, Stuart is playing in the final. If he wins, the emotion that he showed last night after winning the semi, will surely be even more in evidence.  It struck me that it was that passion and emotion that he put into what he does every day that had brought him the success and I now want to find ways of applying that to my own business. My first thought was about what Stuart's daily schedule might be and how many hours he spends on the practice table, just banging in balls from all kinds of angles, safety play to make it hard for his opponent etc., and the boring stuff, accounts, planning future tournament attendance, answering correspondence and paying bills.

Every week I see a whole bunch of people who think that networking is easy becoming disappointed and disillusioned and I want to reach out to them. It's a shame that some of our top gurus have given this impression that you can just turn a switch and money will begin pouring into your bank account. Sorry guys, there is some work involved. It isn't that technical so you needn't be afraid of us, but you have to do SOMETHING to attract people into your business.

Spring's a good time for getting re-energised about what you do. You could, for instance review your daily schedule - if you even have one. I don't do everything on my schedule in the same order every day and sometimes things get missed, but it is still there to bring me back on track.

1. Collect daily IBO credits. I log out and back in again and go to the credit redeem to log my daily code from the top of the IBO page plus I do whatever else is indicated for that day. It might be reading a Monday double dose email where I get a code for IBO toolbox and one for IBOExchange or it might mean checking the IBO Twitter or Facebook page or setting an alarm on my phone for a webinar later in the day.

2. Convert some credits to impressions and run ads. First thing is if I need to create a new ad for something, to freshen up a campaign or start a new one. Then I convert my impressions and start the ads running. I try to vary the time across the week so I ensure that whenever people visit IBO there's a chance that they will see my ad.

3. Email - yes this is a boring chore but it's great when I see 'You have referred a new affiliate' or similar. This is when the passion rushes back and if you go into your daily chores with the idea that you will see SOME kind of good result every day then it makes all the boring bits feel worthwhile.

4. New Contacts. People are what drives my business. IBO is a fantastic resource for meeting and greeting new people. I use the IBO search to see who has joined in the last 24 hours or to see how many other British people have joined IBO in the last week and ask them to be associates. Yes, of course I have associates from around the world - this is just an example of what IBO can do for you. If you are the sort of person that likes to talk one on one, then look for the new members with a Skype ID and request them as a contact over there as well as an associate on IBO. And then there is following up with new members - Kris has written a PR for suggestions what to say or you can ask me what I send out. It's quite brief - just to make them feel I am interested in what they do and to introduce myself.

In addition to the above, I might spend an hour clicking ads from a particular mailer like Bweeble or ListJoe or my friend Merry Makowski's  Webmailad. I know that these mailers are effective and bring new people into my business. At the end of it, my aim is to have enough credits to send out an ad. I will also look at the stats from the last mailing to see how many people clicked. 

Through the day, I am listening and watching for 'hooks' or little pieces of information or inspiration that might work up into a PR or blog post and as you see, they can come from surprising directions.

If you don't have the real passion and dedication to stick to at least some kind of schedule, including the boring stuff, like Stuart, and myself, then you can't really expect success to fall in your lap. Life isn't like that for most people.
