Now you've taken a look, bought the starter kit, been on a 3 way call with an 'expert' and now you're ready to REALLY get started, but you have no idea what you're supposed to do. Here's the short list of the Pros and Cons of The Trump Network:
PROS: Donald Trump! Hard to find a bigger name than that. His success although controversial at times is undisputed. Excellent products. Solid business platform.
CONS: It is not technically a start up, but a rebranding of a 12 yr old company. Here's some facts about "start ups" nonetheless. Nine of ten startups don't survive the first year. The Trump name notwithstanding, there's still those odds to overcome. The contract with the reps is, as usual, very company-friendly.
2.9: Cancellation of Trump Network Independent Marketer Agreements Any Trump Network Independent Marketer may cancel his or her Independent Marketer Agreement at any time, and for any reason, upon written notice to TTN at its principal business address. TTN reserves the right to terminate all Independent Marketer Agreements upon thirty (30) days notice for any reason, or any individual Independent Marketer‟s Agreement for any reason upon thirty (30) days notice.
This means the company can drop you at any time without reason.
13.2: Downline Rollup Due to Inactivity Trump Network Independent Marketers must produce at least 1,600 of Commissionable Volume (CV) every twelve (12) month period (commencing with first commission month) in order to remain active. Independent Marketers who do not achieve the minimum annual Personal Volume will have their downline organization roll up to the next active Trump Network Independent Marketer‟s frontline, and will lose all rights to future commissions and bonuses on those Trump Network Independent Marketers who rolled up.
[NEW INFORMATION as of 1/2010 from a Trump Rep is that the annual requirement is now 1200 instead of 1600)
Clauses like this make it difficult if not impossible to actually retire.
Clauses like these are typical in most network marketing companies. It took me a few months to find a company that was equally as fair to the representatives as to the company. No such clauses exist in my company contract.
So how to you make money with the Trump Network?
You call your sponsor, and they tell you what they were told, which is basically useless, and so you fall for the most gullible, stupid strategies that you could possible engage in - depending on your friends, neighbors, and relatives to make you rich.
Now even though I love my family, they're not the best business people I've ever met in my life. (At least most of them aren't). So where do you go from there? Do you try and make new friends by wandering around town, going to bars, and ignoring your family to hang out in coffee shops?
It was my intention to keep this article short and powerful, so what I'm going to do is give you four tips on exactly how to earn massive profits with The Trump Network, and how to learn the secrets. Here are 4 of the most important things you could do:
1. Be innovative. Even though that it's true that you need duplication in your organization to succeed, nobody wants to join a 'Carbon Copy' of everyone else. Be unique and it will pay off in The Trump Network. Use your talents, skills, and creativity to STAND OUT from the crowd.
2. Learn to automate your sales process. There are a thousand unique, fabulous systems that can automate the sales funnel for The Trump Network, and there are two really good ones I can think of from the top of my head. The simple fact is that most marketers waste precious time, effort, and money with pointless processes that lead to frustration, when they could be automating their process with a system, like I do. If you miss this one - you're missing the boat in The Trump Network.
3. Learn to use online marketing tactics to grow your customer base and sponsor more reps automatically. If you could generate 20 or more leads per day for the next 2 years with The Trump Network, there would be nothing stopping you from earning as much as you would like to earn. One of the biggest issues that people have when they get started with Donald Trump is that they have more time to call prospects than they have leads. If that's you, you have a problem. There are a lot of ways to market, and I recommend finding one way and sticking with it until you master that one strategy. If you have money, Google AdWords is the best way to start. If you want to learn how to get tons of free traffic, Articles and Videos are best.
4. Master the skill of closing over the telephone. Look, I know there are a bunch of fake MLM gurus out there saying that you never need to close anyone, but the fact is that the highest paid skill in The Trump Network is closing. Learn to build a rapport, ask simple open ended needs based questions, and ask for the sale. If you do those simple things you'll out perform 90% of everyone in The Trump Network.
