For the last 3yr+ plus I have been working in gif business, there are some few blunders that I have observed.
What’s a BLUNDER ?
A blunder in simple words is just a silly Mistake.
I NORMALLY TELL MY TEAM THAT MOST OF US DON’T EARN THE MONEY WE WISH TO EARN NOT BECAUSE WE DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO BUT WE KNOWINGLY IGNORE TO DO WHAT WE WERE SUPPOSED TO DO. So whatever am going to share is not something new.
12 blunders you should Avoid in your GIF business.
1. Inadequate skills
Nobody join this business with skills. We were once naive about network marketing business. Lack of skills simply means you are planning to kill you business. It’s the high time all of us should take self development seriously. Educate yourself everyday about your industry. If you don’t have content, how will you build a successful network?The following are must do:A. Read books e.g my first year in network marketing, Go pro, napkin presentation etc.B. Watch videos related to network marketing. C. Listen to audios for network marketing. D. Attend ALL physical and online events. NB:RESEARCH AND SHARE WITH OTHERS TO LEARN BETTER
2. LACK OF SHOW UP
80 % Of your success lies on show. Attend physical events as often as possible , it’s very important for us not to give any excuses of not showing up for the the events/meetings. 99% of the skills members have today come from the events particularly meetings.OUR CEO HAS NEVER MISSED ANY MEETING FOR 17 YEARS IN MLM. Learn from other people’s stories.
3. LACK OF CONTACTS
99% of your time should go to getting contacts and inviting. Contacts are the backbone of Network marketing.I can’t emphasize the importance of regularly getting contacts. The secret to massive success lies here. If you still has a challenge here kindly go to your uplines for immediate assistance. If you can’t get contacts then you are not in the business yet.

.4. FAILURE TO USE AVAILABLE TESTIMONIALS
People take testimonials lightly but it’s one of the cornerstone of humongous success in network marketing.How do you expect people to believe that you can help them to make money if you personally can’t show them you’re making money? . How dare are you !!Don’t underestimate the daily emails, the new ranks achieved, the weekly earnings however little they are. People don’t want to see 80k to join you. They just want to prove if the business is working. So don’t hide that mpesa message of Kshs. 1800.I was a victim in my early days until I started sharing my testimonials that’s when I saw good progress. It set the pace for your team and it attract prospects
5. POOR BRANDING
The image that you portray either offline or online matters alot.We keep on signing the branding song but some of the new champions take it for granted. 70% of rejection you get outside there come from branding. The likes of Caroline Mwende, Captain Carmilus, Patrick Wambua And the rest are just experiencing 30% rejection or less because of the brand the have been building. If possible, take a clear studio photo for your business. It’s for your own benefit.
6. POOR/INADEQUATE BUSINESS TOOLS
These tools are must have all the time to qualify to be an online marketer:1. Good smartphone/LAPTOP . Some of us especially new champions are struggling with this challenge. If you phone doesn’t support some apps or has insufficient space ,please do something about this.
2. 2. 2. 2. Enough data bundles daily. Why do you call yourself an online entrepreneur if you are not consistent being online?
3. 3. 3. 3. Network marketing books. Let your uplines asist you with the soft copies available.
4. 4. 4. 4. Applications you must download. ZOOM, SWIFTKEY/GKEYBOARD/TOUCHPAL, TELEGRAM AND STATUS SAVER .
5. 5. 5. THESE ARE THE MOST ESSENTIAL AS PER NOW
7. POOR LEADERSHIP
I really wonder why people take leadership for granted. If you are not self driven person, are you really a leader?? People want to be reminded to participate in groups, people who to be told do this and this. No, we can’t work that way as leaders. We must know why we are in gif and what exactly we want. We are all leaders in network marketing no matter how young you are in the business. Do research about appropriate leadership to develop a self driven leader. Followers don’t go far in network marketing. mark my words Everything rises and fall under leadership.
We all know how hard it’s to be consistent but what are you doing to lesser the challenge. It’s one of the deadly sins in network marketing by Eric Worre. What’ I do to be consistent is coming up with a working schedule and put in self disciplined to follow it deligently.consistency in cipfere =consistent results
9. COMFORT ZOME
A successful person forgo all the pleasures of the world for a short duration of time in order to enjoy all the pleasurable things for the rest of his/her life. Is that what we are doing, me included ❓. I don’t think so. Do what you don’t like now to enjoy everything you like in the near future. No growth in comfort zone
10. POOR TIME MANAGEMENT
This is one of the resources most of us are misusing. If you don’t plan your time properly, you are planning to fail. What’s consuming your time again now ❓.Always plan your day on paper in the evening before you sleep. I think it’s the high time all of us should work for 18 hours daily like Grant Cardone who did this for 30 years. Now he is enjoying the fruits of his massive success .
11. ASSOCIATING AND LISTENING TO NEGATIVITY
You become exactly the product of what you watch, listen and the people you associate yourself with.You are lucky enough to be in gif on time where almost every is pushing you to succeed. They celebrate you and hyperbolize the magnitude of the little achievement you do.Gif is the best family to be. Don’t ever think to do what your agemate are doing out there because you’re already in the right company and you will enjoy what they will not have in the near future. Never look back. REMEMBER GARBAGE IN GARGABE OUT.
12. EXCESSIVE TALKING LESS ACTION ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS BUT IT’S THE OTHER WAY ROUND FOR SOME OF US.
Nothing ever will happen if you don’t take actions. Let’s be go getters. If you hype as a leader, remember to lead by example. See you all at the Top.
