Today, I’d like to share my daily checklist for network marketers. I’m a big fan of checklists and “to-do” lists.

I learned about “checklists” during my time in the Army and I decided to incorporate them into my MLM Business as well. In the Army, there are checklists for everything. There are pre-flight checklists all pilots must go through before they can take off. There are checklists for inspections you must follow. There are checklists for doing certain jobs. These checklists force people to focus and do the right tasks in the right order, so they achieve a certain result or standard. As I see it, checklists help reduce human error.

We are all pressed for time. Most people in our industry have a day job, a family, and outside of the home responsibilities. By the time they get home, eat dinner, spend some time with their family and watch their favorite television show there isn’t much time left in the day to build the business.

There are only 24-hours in a day. I’ve found that if you don’t have written priorities SCHEDULED in your day planner or written down on a “to do” list, there is a good chance it won’t get done. Life just gets in the way.

I suggest to everyone on my team, and to all other network marketers as well, to have a daily checklist or “to-do” list covering the few critical tasks they must do that day to build their network marketing business.

Example Daily Checklist for Network Marketers

Here is an example daily checklist for network marketers, specifically part-timers.

_____ Make two exposures

_____ Ask two people to order a product

_____ Follow-up with two people

_____ Talk with your coach

_____ 15-minutes of personal development

You could literally complete these five tasks in 45-minutes or less.

My Daily Checklist for My MLM Business

Here is my current daily checklist for my network marketing business. I can do these activities in about two and a half hours per day.

_____ Connect with 30 new prospects on LinkedIn daily (5-10 minutes)

_____ Recognize 3 people daily in Facebook group (5-minutes)

_____ Send daily Herculist email and place ad (10-minutes)

_____ Monitor COOP and ads (15-minutes)

_____ Read (15-minutes)

_____ Watch personal development podcast or video (15-minutes)

_____ Text PEMs every Thursday (20-minutes)

_____ Tuesday webinar (60-minutes)

Please keep in mind I am a full-time network marketer. Do not compare yourself to what I do. Instead, write down something that works for you.

Final Thoughts

I HIGHLY suggest you come up with a daily checklist for your network marketing business. Put three to seven money producing tasks on your list each day. Remember, the only money producing activities in your network marketing business are prospecting, showing the plan, following up, getting customers and training your team. Make sure those are the activities you place on your daily checklist for network marketers.

This business is not rocket science. Success boils down to doing a few simple things every day, over and over until you reach your goals. Most people fail in our industry because they do not focus, and they are not persistent and consistent!

Take 15-minutes right now and come up with a daily checklist for your network marketing business. Post it by your computer, put a copy in your day planner and one on the refrigerator. Make sure you do everything on your list at least five days a week, and preferably six days a week. Do that for two to three years and I know you will have a big business. Don’t do it and you will fail.
