Subscribe to direct selling websites such as the World Federation of Direct Selling Associations, Direct Selling News (DSN), Business for Home, and Networking Times. These will help keep you up-to-date with the latest industry news and special features, which will boost both your knowledge and motivation.
3. Work closely with your mentor.
Successful mentors know the ins and outs of the industry, and would be able to teach you all about them. Good leaders have also reached their goals by being Network Marketing Professionals themselves, so what you learn from them should go beyond knowing the industry – you would be able to fully understand and appreciate ethical network marketing more.
4. Sign up for offline and online trainings.
Attend network marketing seminars and business trainings to enhance your knowledge and skills. You can also learn at your own time by signing up for online classes such as those offered by the Swiss eLearning Institute (SELI).
5. Join network marketing conferences and conventions.
Network marketing conventions such as QNET’s V-CON bring network marketing professionals from all over the world together in celebration of the business and their success. There are plenty of ways you can get the most out of a network marketing event such as V-CON, where you will surely come back home with valuable lessons from industry leaders and your fellow professionals.
Happy Networking! 🙂
