The world of online information regarding network marketing is definitely packed full of tips, techniques and testimonials. But what about Network Marketing books? Many of us still like to sit down and open a real book with a real cover and pages to turn. What are some of the best reads on network marketing?
Pretty much anyone I know would recommend the books by Robert Kiyosaki. Perhaps his most famous is called "Rich Dad Poor Dad". As the title alludes to, the book is about how most of us learn the "poor Dad" philosophy that is taught to us by our middle class upbringing while children of rich fathers learn a whole different set of rules.
Among other lessons which are must-learns for network marketers, his book teaches us that we need to start thinking like rich, successful people in order to be rich and successful people. Kiyosaki has also written several other books including "Rich Dad’s Guide to Investing", "Rich Kid Smart kid", "Cashfow Quadrant" and the "Rich Dad’s Business School". Kiyosaki’s books focus greatly on attitude which most successful marketers will say was the key to their success.
"How to Sell Network Marketing Without Fear, Anxiety or Losing Your Friends" is actually one of my personal favorites because it gives a great deal of attention to the art of listening which many network marketers are not very good at. Listening is something that all successful salespeople know how to do well.
On the more "how-to" side of network marketing books, there is "Your First Year in Network Marketing" by Mark and Rene Reid Yarnell which offers more action-oriented strategies on how to overcome those first-year obstacles and position yourself for lifelong success.
"How to Build a Large Successful Multi-Level Marketing Organization" by Don Failla is on the top of many network markters’ lists – and something they require their downline to read.
"Network Marketing for Dummies" by Zig Ziglar is sort of a combination between the motivational aspect needed for network marketing and the more strategic issues but it has some mixed reviews. Many are on the positive side but the more experienced network marketers were not overly enthusiastic about the book.
"The Ultimate Guide to Network Marketing" is very interesting because it actually features the industry’s 37 top income-earners who share their so-called secrets to success.
Richard Poe has published 4 books dealing with network marketing: "Wave 3: The New Era in Network Marketing", "The Wave 3 Way to Building Your Downline", "Wave 4: Network Marketing in the 21st Century" and "The Wave 4 Way to Building Your Downline".
The last book I will mention in this article is called "The New Professionals: The Rise of Network Marketing as the Next Major Profession" and that was written by Charles W. King and James W. Robinson. Due to the internet age and the economic crisis, the numbers of people turning to network marketing are definitely on the rise.
