You should not, by all means, confuse your list of friends with your list of network marketing prospects. Your list for your network business may not necessarily contain your friends, family members, or colleagues. This list should be composed of people who are entrepreneurs, risk takers, business minded individuals, home-business owners, or people who are seeking opportunities and guidance for their business. If you have this highly qualified people on the list, you have a much better chance of accomplishing sales or sign-ups. Keep in mind that it doesn’t follow that someone would purchase from you if he or she is simply closely related to you. If you are looking forward to find these highly qualified individuals, you would find them confined inside internet marketing blogs, pay-per click ads, and search engine optimizations. Once you have successfully put up this list, then your success would soon follow.After the list building, the next crucial thing to do is to follow-up. The follow-up is important because it is in this process that you are trying to build a relationship with your list. It is where you build trust between you and your prospects. Trust is that crucial factor that can turn those lists and prospects into customers and affiliates. You could gain their trust if you are sincere to them and if you are being transparent to them. You should be able to present them those tools, guidance, and most of all, answers to their queries. Just be careful with that information you are sending them. The main tool that could aid you with the follow-up process is an autoresponder. Autoresponder is a program that allows you to send emails to your list on a scheduled manner but without giving you the stress of sending them one at a time. It is an automated system to let you respond to your list. But be sure that your autoresponder would deliver quality information all of the time, and on the right time. Do not ever use these autoresponders to bombard your list with useless e-mails.

Types of Interview Structure
The usual interview structure is welcome, acquire information, supply information and close. Initially, the interviewer will establish some rapport with you and then go into your background.
Competency Based Interviewing
There is growing realisation that each individuals’ contribution to the achievement of a company’s objectives in the future will be qualitatively different from the past, relying less on the skills they may possess today and more on the ability to perform in the face of change e.g. the ability to balance the profit motive with customer sensitivity.
Interviewers now try to distinguish the individuals who can contribute most to the future growth and prosperity of the organisation.

What are management competencies?
Management competencies are taken to mean more than just the skills needed to perform the job: they are seen as clusters of skills, knowledge, values, and personal attributes.
The Competency Approach emphasises that there is more than one way of being an effective manager but that the best employees/candidates can be distinguished by their use of particular clusters of behaviour, supported by a set of personal characteristics, motivators, traits and self-belief.

One of the most important things for online business owners to have is a strong work ethic. After all, there is no boss standing over you and making sure you get all your required work done. When you are the boss, you must motivate yourself to stick to the job and get everything completed in a timely fashion.
Not only do the everyday chores of home and family provide distractions for online business owners, the internet itself is a treasure trove of time wasters.
Time Waster for Online Business Owners – Email
Of course, most online business owners have to read and answer email for their business. But, they probably get personal emails as well. Personal emails should not be answered during the business hours that they set. Just as an employer would not want you to email your sister during office hours, you should not do so during your own business hours.
Time Waster for Online Business Owners – Social Networking
Social networking sites have become huge in the past few years. Online business owners often use them for business networking and even advertising. It is important, however not to waste your time chatting with others and exchanging pictures or video that have nothing to do with your online business. Read more...

Is your business networking helping you bring in the new clients you want? If you are like most independent professionals and small business owners, you put hard work into getting your name out there and distribute your business card wherever you go. You may even attend a weekly or monthly networking group or occasional business conference where people share leads. And like most people, your time and effort isn’t generating a steady stream of new business.
According to Charlie Cook, author of “Marketing for Success”, the problem is that most people think that business networking consists of telling as many people as possible what they do, and handing out as many business cards as they can. They waste the few precious moments they have with new and existing contacts by focusing on themselves.
It is possible to meet someone, hand them your card after a brief conversation, and have them call you to request your services, but this random approach is like playing the lottery. You can’t count on it to produce results. This is a “Push and Pray” technique. You push your information out to others and pray that they respond. It rarely works. Your contact loses your card or simply forgets about you, or the timing wasn’t right, or, in spite of the connection you thought you’d made, a single conversation usually isn’t enough to launch a client relationship.
