Building a strong business requires a good strong business plan. Your three main goals for your business should be to focus on the actual growth, management, and consolidation of your team. These three elements equal a successful business. Below are tips for creating a good network marketing business plan.1. You always need a good network marketing business plan before you actually begin the business. A builder would not strike out and build a home without a good set of blueprints (house plans) nor should a potential business owner set out to start a business without a good set of business plans.2. Start with your primary business goal, which should be your main purpose. Detail the actual steps you need to take to reach the goal. MLM goals are normally pre-set, meaning the company you plan to represent may already have this goal in mind for you. For example, you will sell X-number of products and services by X-time. You will sign up X-recruits by X-time.3. Detail the action steps to gain a good customer base.4. Detail the action steps in building your team (or down line). Include in the steps details on how to target the right audience for your MLM company. Targeting the right audience is much better than the “talk to all of your family and friends about this opportunity” approach. By targeting a niche market you are approaching “warm” prospects, which will make building of your team a lot easier.5. Determine how much you will initially invest in your business. Detail how much you will put back in to grow it and decide on a point when you can pay yourself income. “I will pay myself X% of the net profits once I achieve X-amount in sales and / or X-number of recruits.”6. Detail how you plan to keep your customers happy. Generally, this entails going over and above with the products / services you sell. In other words, be more than “just” a salesman.7. Detail how you plan to maintain your down line. Any relationship needs to be nurtured to grow and thrive. Develop a good support network with your team with the goal of helping each other to succeed.8. Detail all the little tasks that will help your business to grow. For example, list how and when you will order products / services, any appointments you may need, how you plan to handle the cash-flow (banks, accountants, advisors), taxes, and a good list of all the marketing tools you will need.Once you write your network marketing business plan, you can go over it with a mentor or a business coach to fine-tune the details. Even if you are anxious to get going with the business, it is important you start out with a good solid and detailed plan. Make sure you have what it takes to make a good solid, long-term commitment to implementing this plan. Learn all you can about your MLM company so your plan meshes with their plans and goals. Always include your down line or team in your plans. You succeed if they succeed.
