When you explore a network marketing business, what does every company have in common? Almost all network marketing companies organised their events, conventions and incentive trips.
However, one major challenge is that many distributors believe that they are able to build a successful business without plugging into the company events, as long as they do their prospecting, recruiting and mentoring.
I was once holding the same belief too, until I followed my upline leader’s advice to take effort attending all the events organised by the company. Since then, it totally changed my belief. Attending company events is indeed very important for all network marketers.
It helps me to rekindle my dream, goals, and purpose.
Company event is the destination where all like-minded people gather. It’s a place for me to put down all the burdens of prospecting, presenting and recruiting, to completely immerse in the activities and to rekindle my dream of why I joined network marketing in the first place. It gives me strength to go back and move my business further.
It’s a learning platform
Doesn’t matter what you do in life, there is always no limit for new knowledge. By attending company events, it’s a good opportunity for me to learn and gain new insights about the network marketing industry. I always look forward to learn more from the keynote speakers.
I feel myself as part of the community
When I started my network marketing business, I approached the business as a lone wolf and faced challenges by myself. Initially, I didn’t fully comprehend the common saying of network marketers, “you are in the business for yourself, but not by yourself.” When I attended the company national convention for the first time, I totally get the whole idea. When I was in the event, I was surrounded by the people who, saw the same opportunity, take on the same journey, hold the similar aspirations and face the similar challenges. This reminded me that I’m not alone, but I’m a part of this large and impactful community.
In most of the network marketing events, recognition is one of the event’s highlight. The company recognised all the individuals or the groups that achieve a certain status. When those people walk up to the stage to receive the awards and give their sharing, I was moved and inspired. I want to be like them or even better than them, I want to bring my whole group of members to be on the stage.
I personally find that after every event that I have attended in the past, each time it brought me to my new personal height. Bare in mind that, do not attend events for the sake of attending. Always try to outdo your previous self and strive to attend the next event with a better self. Eventually you will be very successful in the business and you may be even invited to speak on the stage. Set your priority for your next company event and see you at the top.
