Now if you have a team at all, I am going to assume you know how to communicate on some level. Building a successful network marketing company is all about building meaningful relationships and if you have already got someone to sign up to your business you already have the skills to motivate you team.
I would go as far as to say it is virtually impossible to build a successful team without communication. So if you have team, or even before you start building your team, you need to take an oath to commit to the following:
- Commitment to Communicate
- Commitment to Communicating Consistently
- Commitment to Communicating Clearly and Concisely
- Commitment to Check your Conversations
Let’s look at these a little more closely…
Commitment to Communicate
I can’t stress how important it is to communicate with your team. If you thinking you can run off into the sunset after you sign up your new recruit and expect to be a success, you can forget it.
You need to commit to communicating with you team regularly. So much so, that you should have a schedule and stick to it. Making it part of your daily, weekly and monthly routine will help embed this process.
Remember, you don’t just need to be connecting with your team about the company and products. You should also be connecting with them on a personal level. Make sure you are friends with them on Social Networks, if they have a blog subscribe to their RSS feed or add them to your Twitterfeed.
Facebook is a great way to remind you of your team member’s birthdays. Add you team to a special list on Facebook so that you can see what they are up to and you can interact with them whenever you are online.
Be sure to congratulate your team on any sales they make, when they recruit new members, or reach new milestones in their business. E-mail them, send them valuable information and send them motivational thoughts. Even if they don’t always reply, keep up with the communication, so when they really need you, they will know that you are there for them.
Communicate Clearly and Concisely
Before you send any message, whether it is in an e-mail, message on Facebook, video or tweet, make sure your message is easy to understand. Your communication should be well written, simple, clear, concise and should do exactly what you intended it to do.
If you are contacting your team about a topic that is complicated such as compensation or binary plans. Try your best to summarize the facts as best you can and then make a link to the corporate example….that way you can’t be responsible for confusing them, in fact it will be apparent that you tried to help them understand.
Remember to use spelling and grammar checks and proofread everything. If you are sharing important and valuable information with your team it is sometimes better to give them a call or chat with them on Skype. Sometimes things just make more sense when you can thrash it out on the phone. Learning how to communicate well with your team will go a long way to building you a successful business.
Consistent communication is one of the most important aspects of all. Communicating regularly will produce the best results. If you are going to be away for a while whether for vacation, new baby, moving home or other event, make sure your team are well aware of this and let them know when you will be back.
Even better, make sure they have a relationship with other team members and your own up-line so that they always have someone to contact should they have any questions.
You could consider a weekly newsletter, a new blog post, text message, Skype messages, Facebook messages or telephone call. Anything you can think of, let your team know that they are an important part of your business and that you appreciate them.
Check your conversations
This comes back to your commitment to communicate. If you send a message out to your team and they then send you a message back, make sure you take the time to answer any questions. If they want to schedule sometime with you, make sure you make time for them.
Don’t just send a message out and then not make yourself available. Communication is a two way process, you wouldn’t be in a personal relationship with someone that didn’t answer you when you asked them something. The same is true of the relationships with your team.
In a world of social media, social networks, e-mail, video communication, telecommunication and the internet, you really have no excuse not to be able to communicate with you team. In fact I bet your cell phone is within reach of you right now, you might even have Skype and you e-mail account open on your desktop or you might have heard of little known sites such as Facebook and Twitter!
