This sounds like a contradiction because MLM is about duplication but I don’t think everything has to be duplicable!
You see a few weeks ago I was wondering if some of my marketing wasn’t effective because my team couldn’t duplicate what I was doing. I’m pretty darn good at the internet marketing stuff. What if my team can’t duplicate what I do? Should I stop doing it even though I’m “great” at it?
A couple of weeks ago I was hanging out with Big Al and I thought I’d mention it to him and get his opinion. He simply replied with a question.
If you had a team member who had 600 family members would you tell them NOT to talk to their family because it isn’t duplicatable?
It hit me like a ton of bricks. Of course you wouldn’t tell them not too. They shouldn’t be held back simply because they have a larger family than most people. They should be able to use that advantage.
Since I’m great at internet marketing I should use that advantage. Even if not all my team members can do what I do. There’s no reason for me to penalize myself because I am so good at something that it’s hard for others to duplicate. After all I can share my knowledge with my team and some of them can do what I do… I should play to my strengths not my weaknesses.
It’s like if you sponsor someone famous you don’t tell them to hide their celebrity status. Instead you tell them to use that sphere of influence as much as they can.
So MLM doesn’t have to be about duplication. Do you think I’m crazy? Do you agree? Do you have any suggestions for me?
