How To Become A Network Marketing Top Earner

If you’ve recently joined the network marketing world, or are considering doing such, you’re probably already aware that there are those at the very top and many of those who wish they were. It’s no secret that wishing alone won’t make you a top earner in the network marketing world; those spots are reserved for those who preserve, work hard and are consistently passionate about making their new business a top priority.

Of course, those who are top earners now weren’t always at their current level. Those who are top earners tend to do things differently from the network marketing amateurs. If you’re really serious about thriving in network marketing, here are some key tips for doing just that:

Focus First on Relationships

Those who are new to network marketing are often consumed with recruiting others or making a sale, and this obsession is evident when those in recruitment turn resistent. Instead of spamming your friend’s email inboxes and over-posting on social media, take a page out of the top earners’ book and focus first on building relationships with others.

Seek to make friendships and learn more about others and as you do so you may find out what another person does for a living and share what you do as well. By focusing on the person first you’ll find that they’ll be more likely to be interested in you as well and more apt to learn more about your business.

Top earners understand this concept and focus their energy primarily on building genuine relationships with others and going from there. Their network is usually full of people who are more than just recruits; they’re friends.

Resist an Outcome-Only Mentality

With amateur network marketers, every possible prospect determines whether they are a success or an outright failure and that kind of pressure makes it hard to really rise above. The top earners are a little more relaxed in their mentality and recognize that people are going to tell them “no” everyday and that it’s just part of the business. They understand that their job isn’t simply selling or recruiting but it’s more about educating others and forming connections. When you’re able to change your mindset from that of, “Sell, sell, sell” or, “Recruit, recruit, recruit” to that of being an information provider, things begin to click. Simon Abboud, an ACN Circle of Champions member, stands by this mantra: “I try never to think of what I will do next week or next month, but always today”.

Approach others with the idea that you have something of value to share and options to give them that can provide new freedom and financial success to their lives. Look at your position from the standpoint of sharing something that might help others. If they accept your proposal or not, it doesn’t mean rejection for you.

Move Out of Your Comfort Zone

When you start out, your market might include those you’re most comfortable with: family, friends, neighbors, co-workers and social media connections. After a while, however, you’ll have exhausted your connections in these markets in which you’re most comfortable and it will be time to expand your reach. Many amateurs begin to feel uncomfortable at this point and aren’t sure how to move forward. Top earners are always looking for ways to generate new leads and find new prospects through consistent effort. Try to have new prospects in the pipeline before exhausting the connections you already have and constantly build your audience.

7 Personality Traits That Make Great Network Marketers


Passionate people can make things that seem impossible happen.  If you are going to get involved with a network marketing company,  get involved with one that you are really passionate about. Of course, you’ll always get the naysayers that say ‘ACN is a scam‘ or ‘Mary Kay preys off women’. Don’t listen to them.  Chances are if you are passionate about it, other people will be too. The second part to being passionate is being enthusiastic. In most cases these two go together and it is important that your enthusiasm and passion of the product or service you are selling is apparent.


In order to be a successful network marketer, you need to be determined. You need to be able to set measurable goals for yourself and be determined enough to accomplish them day after day and week after week. Discipline is also important.  If you have set goals, but don’t have the discipline to achieve them, you will never move up in the company or make the money you thought you would when you started.

Relationship builder

You are probably able to think of someone who can make a friend in any grocery store line or at whatever gas station they enter. The trait can be extremely helpful for a network marketer. With no inhibition and fear to talk to strangers, you are able to build a lot more connections and expand your network immensely. This business is all about who you know and who you talk to.  If you are able to talk to anyone about the business you are in, and your passion and love for the product is real, you are likely to gain a lot more customers than people who prefer to keep to themselves.


The ability to see things before you have it is really important in network marketing. You need to be able to picture yourself 5, 10, 20 years down the road with your company. How strong is your vision? If it’s lacking, start finding ways to really picture what you are wanting in your future.


Each direct selling companies have something that makes them unique.  The key to being able to sell that uniqueness is knowing all about it.  They say knowledge is power and it’s true. It is a continual process to be knowledgeable in your company.  Most network marketing companies like ACN provide workshops, books, and other services to help you gain specialized knowledge in recruiting, building a team, motivating others and selling the product.

Strong Work Ethic

No matter the company whether it is makeup, kitchen supplies or direct selling telecommunications, you have to be willing to work hard if you expect to make money.  There is no such thing as a get rich scheme.  Being apart of a Multi-Level Marketing company give you potential to make money but only if you have your own strategies on how to get there.  You have to put in a lot of work to get connections to know about the product and then to end up buying the product from you. People have made millions in a single year, but it wasn’t without hardships like some top IBO’s explain when asked for their reviews of ACN.


Someone who has the ability to sell or persuade another person to buy a product definitely has a leg up when it comes to network marketing. It can be hard to try to sell people on things, so the people who are naturals at it are lucky.  You can learn tactics on how to sound authentic when you are talking about the things you are selling.  Over time, you will be more comfortable and will become more influential.
