Big Al's Network Marketing Predictions for 2011!

Big Al's Network Marketing Predictions for 2011!

Prediction #1

Again this year, it is reported that approximately 50% of all doctors will graduate in the bottom half of their classes. By allowing these underachievers into society, sales for nutritional products should greatly increase.

Prediction #2

Personal responsibility and work ethics will decline. Many freeloaders will just hope for success, and will consider that their total commitment. You will see ads like the following in "personal" columns throughout the country: Lazy, SWM, network marketing junkie looking for SWF with established downline for marriage and financial support.

Prediction #3

The worst selling new network marketing book of 2011 will be:

"How I Turned Two Million Dollars into a Million-Dollar Fortune" by Sleaze Shallowman.

Prediction #4

You won't see the following headline on any company newsletter: Uneducated, untrained, unmotivated distributor leads company in recruiting and retail sales. Earns largest check ever in network marketing.

Prediction #5

More and more workers will continue to leave the work force and start their own part-time networking businesses. Why? They are bored or frustrated with their present jobs. Industry experts estimate that 40% of all sick days occur on Fridays and Mondays. This estimate confirms the workers' desire to leave a boring workplace environment.

Prediction #6

A new company will launch that insists that if you don't join now, it will be too late tomorrow. But what will we tell the prospects after tomorrow? This cycle will be repeated several times every day.

Prediction #7

Many unsuccessful distributors who do not have the skills to build a downline will mistakenly join yet another company with the hopes that joining a company will fix their lack of skills. This cycle will be repeated by these untrained distributors throughout the year.

Prediction #8

Many unsuccessful distributors will blame their sponsor, their company, their pricing and the general market for their failure. They won't realize that many distributors in their company are enjoying success with the same set of circumstances.

Prediction #9

Many unsuccessful distributors will stop their prospecting activities and then complain that they can't find any prospects. Resuming their prospecting activities will never occur to them.

Prediction #10

Prospects will refuse to build a network marketing business while employed. They prefer to wait until it is too late, until after they are released from their jobs. These prospects will then insist that they start their network marketing business with a full-time income.
