Hello, my name is Nate Bianco and I’ve been earning a full time income working from home since March 2003, and over the years I’ve learned there are certain factors in choosing a home based business that greatly determines your short and long term success.
My story is a little different than most other MLM Leaders out there, in that I did not have that 3-5 year struggle. I got started in my first network marketing program in late 2002, and in less than 6 months I was earning a respectable full time income from home.
There were a few simple reasons I believe I was able to do this… But first, there is one other thing you should know about me…
I am legally blind. I was diagnosed with a condition called retinitis pigmentosa when I was 14, the condition runs in my family. It’s a progressive condition that starts with night blindness, and then as I get older the blind spots get bigger and bigger. I stopped driving at age 23, and at this point I am unable to read on my own. I use screen reading technology to help me navigate the internet and read text etc.
So I point this out because, they say there is a 97% failure rate in network marketing, and sure we all have challenges to overcome. But if I was able to build a successful income producing business online with very low vision, then I’m sure anyone can do it IF they really have the desire.
Back in late 2002 when I got into my first program, I was earning just $900/mo on disability, and a couple extra hundred dollars per month working a part time job. So it’s not like I had a ton of money to throw at it. That income barely covered my house payment and regular living expenses, so it was a credit card expense for me to get started, as it may be for most people, but that’s what you do when you’re sick and tired of being sick and tired!
So I mentioned above there were a few things that allowed me to be successful so quickly, and I believe if anyone has these same factors in place, they too can be successful…
1. I joined a motivated “TEAM”.
There are all kinds of great opportunities online, but there are very few “teams” that really give you the support you need to succeed. And I’m NOT talking about endless phone support, because that’s NOT what creates success. It’s “lead by example” excited people who help shape your “mindset” to a point where you also “believe” that YOU can do it.
This is 99% of the battle, building up your confidence and belief that you CAN do this, and being part of a team that provides this is critical.
You may or may not of heard it before, but the beliefs you have deep within your mind dictate your actions and how you present yourself, and these beliefs are truly getting you the results you are living. So it’s key to get in, plug in, and stay in with a team of people who are getting the results you desire.
2. Training to expand your contact list
Very very few people have a contact list large enough to earn any significant income, so that means most people will have to reach outside the network of people they know. The internet has connected everyone, and has made it easier than ever to build a business like this online, but there are some simple strategies one must learn to keep an endless flow of new contacts in front of your opportunity.
If you have or make a list of 40 people you know, and after exhausting that list you aren’t making the money you wanted, the solution isn’t to quit and say this didn’t work for you. The solution is to simply continue to grow your list of contacts. The internet and especially social media has made this easier than ever before, it’s just a matter of staying consistant and pushing on.
Again, having a team of successful marketers to “learn from” is critical. then all you have to do is stay “plugged” in and stay consistant.
3. A Product Line That People Want
This seems like a no brainer, but I see a LOT of tech and info programs out there that people are promoting, and while they may be appealing because they are outside the normal health & wellness type program, the simple fact is that physical products that people get attached to are usually far more “long term” than tech or info deals.
4. Affordable Monthly Costs
Far too many companies require a starting autoship of $150 – $200+ per month to get and remain commission qualified. This amount becomes a significant “burden” for most people. So when it does take 12-18 months for someone to develop their contact list to the point where they can start seeing results, by that time they’ve given up and cancelled their autoship because it was far too expensive to stay in the game long enough to succeed.
In my personal experience, the price point needs to be in the $65 – $80 range. This allows most people to start their business, and remain active for the long term, and not have a heavy financial burden while they are learning and building their contact base. This really is a BIG deal.
5. A “Real” System
This may be one of the MOST important factors of all, and it’s something 99% of ALL companies are lacking.
The simple truth is, most people struggle to recruit and build a team of customers and affiliates. On top of that, most others are not motivated enough to put in the grueling work of prospecting to get any significant results.
That is why a “real” system that does most of this work for you is in my opinion an absolute MUST. Since 2002 I have strayed from a system like this a couple of times, and I paid the price in my monthly checks for sure. It DOES make a difference, and for most people it can be the difference in earning a few bucks vs. earning a life changing full time income.
This is something you really need to see in action to respect, and even then, until you’ve gotten in and actually put it to work for you, you may not fully grasp just how powerful it can be.
Having this type of system was CRUTIAL as to why I was able to have success so quickly…
