If you have a network marketing home based business, perhaps that phone can get heavy at times. Network marketing home businesses have one major requirement for business growth. To grow these kinds of home based businesses, you must be willing to make a lot of calls; contact a lot of people.
The more contacts you make, the more opportunities you will have to gain customers and/or business partners. If you call 100 people per week for example, you’ll grow your business must faster than you would if you only called 10 people per week. So it really becomes somewhat of a numbers game.
Another aspect of contacting a lot of prospects, is that the more you contact people, the better your technique will get. So it’s no surprise that the most successful network marketing home businesses are the ones that work those numbers.
Yet it can be hard to pick up that phone and make those calls. Perhaps it’s the fear of rejection or the fear of failure, but many people who join network marketing opportunities quit before getting comfortable with that process. Network marketing has a reputation of having a high failure yet and this is perhaps a good part of the reason why.
Also it’s better to join a network marketing company that will provide you qualified leads. Qualified leads are prospects who have opted in to receive more information or have called a toll free number. These kinds of leads are far easier to talk to than ‘cold leads’.
But if you are considering a network home based business, be sure you are ready to “work those numbers”.
