It's All About The Story

Ever notice how Network Marketers love to make things more complicated than they have to be?

We spend tons of money, and countless hours looking for the "secret" of how to do this business.

The truth is, network marketing is actually pretty simple.

The best explanation I've heard so far about how to build a network marketing business came from Bob Schmitz at a training I attended a few years ago for my candle business.

He said that when it comes to sponsoring new people, you just have to do 3 things ...


  1. Show the Product

  2. Tell Your Story

  3. Tell the Company's Story



And if that doesn't work, you might try ...



  1. Tell Your Story

  2. Show the Product

  3. Tell the Company's Story



Or even ...


  1. Tell the Company's Story

  2. Show the Product

  3. Tell Your Story



You get the idea. Provided that you've got a good product or service, the way that YOU stand out, and attract quality people into your organization is with your story.

And do you want to know what the really cool part is?

It doesn't matter whether you've been doing this for years, or just starting out ... what matters is that you share your story ... tell people Why you do what you do ... What you Love about you business ... and How you got Started.

The more you tell your story, the more success you have.

... and the more success you have, the better your story will get

... which will lead to even more success.

Kind of cool how that works huh?

So, what's your story? ... and how many times have you told it today?

Keep havin FuN!

  1. It really is simple, isn't it! That is exactly how I've grown my business. Stories sell, period. They connect with folks on a much deeper level than a sales pitch. Thanks for the reminder Todd.

  2. I also think that sharing your story can help you in your business. Because in your story is where other people can get inspiration and motivation to strive harder. I extremely agree on this. Tell people Why you do what you do ... What you Love about you business ... and How you got Started. In that way you will be able to persuade them. It's a matter of rhetoric because the more you tell your story, the more success you have. This is a very great article and i can simply relate to it. Nice post!
