Leadership in Network Marketing: 4 Traits that Matter

Leadership - RapidFunnel

Success in network marketing is, and always has been, dependent on an individual’s ability to lead and inspire a team. Embarking on a journey to become the kind of leader who sees enormous success in network marketing necessitates adopting a series of very clear traits and strategies. Here, I’ll demystify the golden principles that have guided my journey and the journey of countless others in the industry.

First, and perhaps most importantly, you must…

Lead By Example

Your actions always speak louder than your words and your team will always do what you do. If you spend your day in management mode, your team will do the same. If you are constantly engaged in prospecting and follow-up (your KPIs) your team will be as well, and everyone will see growth as a result.

Here are the best ways that you can be an excellent example to your team.

  • Clearly identify your Key Performance Indicators and model the corresponding activity for your team.
    • As stated above, the KPIs for most any network marketing team are prospecting and follow-up. Regularly have calls with your team where they can hear you making prospecting calls so that they can not only model the activity but also the technique.
  • Be a Beacon of Consistency
    • Calls, meetings, and activity; make consistency your hallmark, reinforcing the idea that steadfast efforts lead to long-term success.

Spend Your Time Wisely

While the concept of supporting the entire team is appealing, network marketing leaders must pinpoint team members who are aggressively engaged in the right activities and focus a significant portion of their time and effort on them.

  • Use technology to track teamwide activity so that you can easily identify your hungriest team members
  • Plan events and occasions specifically for your most active team members.
  • Gamify your qualifications to participate in these events to make daily activities more fun and engaging.

Encourage Goal Setting

Spend time with your team discussing your goals and learning more about theirs. This includes not only business goals but things that want to do be and have in their personal lives as well.

  • Engage in detailed discussions with your team to understand and align both personal and business goals.
  • Encourage team members to share aspirations pertaining to their personal lives, fostering a deeper connection and mutual understanding.
  • Celebrate Milestones: Recognize and celebrate milestones, big or small, fostering a culture of appreciation and motivation.
