At the time, we were renting the downstairs half of a duplex in Louisville, Kentucky. As the home had been converted from a single family residence, our set up allowed for one bedroom plus a sunroom off of the kitchen. Jojo’s room was the sunroom — a pale blue, non-permitted add-on to the porch that had a wall of windows to catch the late afternoon sun.
Every evening, I’d hold her sleepy body draped in my arms, her head a mess of sweaty curls after a day of non-stop action, and sing her to sleep. We’d pace the sloping floor, edging our way to the crib, waiting for that magical moment when we both could agree that she was good and ready to call it quits.
One night, I was standing with her by the windows, almost asleep on my feet, and just about halfway through the song. I reached the second verse and got as far as, “A donkey named…” then paused to yawn when, to my surprise, Jojo, who had been silent and near-sleep the entire time, chimed in with a drowsy, “Eeyore.”
“You were listening!” I laughed, giving a playful shake to the rag doll in my arms who was growing heavier by the minute.
Up until that point, you see, I had no idea that my singing was doing anything other than putting her
out of her misery to sleep and had no indication that she was actually listening to the song and memorizing All Things Pooh, Piglet, Kanga, Roo, Rabbit, Owl, and — of course — Eeyore.
What does all of this have to do with network marketing success?
Well, apart from the fact that sharing a story from your network marketing success journey helps you to build trust with your readers and is a good way to bond with others in your industry, this little walk down memory lane gives me a good opportunity to drive home a point:
People listen. And watch. And circle your blog/twitter/Facebook — sometimes for a long time — before they ever speak up and let you know they’re out there.
Which means that you’ve got to be consistently posting, updating, and reaching out — even if it feels like you’re whistling in the wind.
Because you never know who’s reading.
Who’s getting to know you, and making a decision about doing business with you.
And one of the most powerful techniques you can use to build trust with those that you hope to add to your network is to be consistent.
Consistency equals commitment.
Which means that, if people are going to throw their hat into the ring with you and join your network, they’re going to want to know that you’re in it for the long haul.
That you see the tremendous value in what you’re promoting, and so are willing to stick it out, through thick or thin.
So if your blog content is growing moldy with age, or the last tweet you posted referred to your New Year’s resolutions… for 2011, it’s time to recommit.
Post, blurb, tweet.
Add value, bring something to the table, start a conversation.
And then, watch the network marketing success that follows as a result.
