Big Al Cartoon: Follow the Crowd

Network Marketing Humor: Follow the Crowd

Network marketing can be enjoyable, and we can have fun making jokes along the way. The journey is the experience. Let’s have a great journey. So read, laugh, and enjoy!



Can your downline do this?

Ask your distributors to write their best one-sentence:

  1. “Ice breaker.”
  2. Presentation opener.
  3. Close.
  4. Subconscious mind trigger.

Just something basic to get them started. If they don’t have a great one-sentence answer, help them so they can at least communicate with prospects without setting off the dreaded salesman alarm.

Our opportunity shouldn’t be a secret.

“A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle.”
— Father James Keller

So let us light another candle by letting people know there is an opportunity. Let’s not keep our opportunity a secret.

In what order should I read the “Big Al” books?

When we come into network marketing, some of us have specific skills.

Others, like me when I started, won’t have any skills. To be successful, we will eventually learn all the skills.

Here is a rough list of the order we could read the “Big Al” books in to learn the skills. It is just a suggestion, but helpful for those who want to learn these skills quickly. Of course, everyone should read the free book first, Why You Need To Start Network Marketing: How To Remove Risk And Have A Better Life. Believing in our profession makes us bullet-proof.

This is only a suggestion for those networkers who say, “I just don’t know where to start.” But as we read through this list of books, some titles will jump out at us and say, “This is the skill you need now.”

The Big Al Library of network marketing skills makes learning fun and easy. Instead of wasting time and being frustrated, we can learn exactly what to say and do in these step-by-step books.

Our value to prospects is the knowledge and skills inside of our heads. The more we have, the more confidence they will have to come on our journey.

Which “Big Al” book should I read first?

Yes, there are a lot of “Big Al” books with step-by-step instructions on the individual skills of network marketing.

Where should a new person start? Well, the answer is, “One size does not fit all.” But that isn’t very helpful for the new person.

My first book recommendation? “3 Easy Habits For Network Marketing: Automate Your MLM Success.”

If network marketing means more money in our lives, we have to learn the basics. These three basic habits will set us off in the right direction. Every distributor should utilize these three magic habits. And, this is how we should start new team members.

Why habits? Because willpower is weak. We don’t want to base our career on willpower. However, these three habits create the consistency we need to build our business. It is like putting the momentum of our business on autopilot. If everyone on our team did these three easy habits, we wouldn’t have to worry about the ups and downs and outside influences that happen. Our growth would be self-sustaining.

Habits rock. We do them automatically. Even without thinking.

If you haven’t read this book, now is a great time. If your team has not read this book, then we are working too hard. For less than a cup of fancy coffee, we can put a new team member on the highway to success. And if we want, we can even listen to this book on audio. What could be easier?

Energy-sucking vampire distributors don’t see it …

Network Marketing Tips: Learn how to turn ordinary distributors into Leaders!As leaders, we hear some our distributors whine about not having any prospects. Of course, they insist that it is not their fault.

Our conversations with the perpetual whiners, the welfare-begging, and energy-sucking vampires in our group, goes something like this:

Whiner: “Oh my. The world isn’t fair. I just don’t have any prospects to talk to.”

Us: “Do other distributors have prospects to talk to?”

Whiner: “Yes, other distributors in the group have plenty of prospects to talk to. It is so unfair.”

Us: “Tell me about these other distributors. Do they have the same compensation plan as you do?”

Whiner: “Of course they have the same compensation plan. We are all with the same company.”

Us: “Do they market the same products as you do?”

Whiner: “Sure. We all have the same products.”

Us: “Do they live in the same town as you do?”

Whiner: “Yes, some of these lucky distributors with lots of prospects live in my neighborhood.”

Us: “Do these lucky distributors have better weather than you do?”

Whiner: “Of course not. We all have the same weather.”

Us: “Hmmm, do these lucky distributors find their prospects here in town?”

Whiner: “Yeah, they find all the good prospects. I can’t find any good prospects. Everyone I talk to is a loser, lazy, too busy, and hates network marketing.”

Us: “So everything is exactly the same between you and those lucky distributors. Same company, same compensation plan, same products, same town, same weather, same group of people to prospect from … everything is exactly the same. So there must be some difference. What do you think it is?”

Whiner: “Uh, I don’t know. And did I tell you about the terrible time I had getting here to the meeting today? The traffic was backed up from an accident, my car overheated, the detours were crowded, somebody ought to fix the roads, somebody ought to hire someone to do a better job, somebody should investigate why there are so many accidents …”

It’s never the distributor’s fault.

Our distributor just doesn’t get it.

Everything is exactly the same between the successful “lucky” distributor and the whining distributor except

The distributor.

Scary, isn’t it?

It is hard to imagine why the whining distributor doesn’t see this. All the factors are exactly the same – except the person.

The successful “lucky” distributor simply learned to “say and do” something different, and that produced different results.

Learn how to turn ordinary distributors into Leaders!
