Home business training

is something that is very popular.


There are a lot of great trainers that are part of companies as well as generic home business trainers. Home party plan companies are part of the home  business profession,  but require different methods than say, direct sales or network marketing.

I have been training and speaking full time for 13 years. But the profession chnages so rapidly that I sometimes just shake my head. I can get a little frustrated sometimes at the pace it changes. Do You?

Home Business training continues to evolve and change. But there are 7 fundamental elements it needs no matter how it evolves.

Regardless of the styles of doing business, there are 7 things that ALL home business training should have and if they do not, they are operating at a weaker training power than they should be.

Here are the 7 Home Business Training Needs ALL Home based business training needs:

1. A Duplicable Process.

This is common sense, and we have all heard it before. You need to have a step by step process that is easy to follow, and is a PATTERN that new folks can follow, and learn. We live in a sequenced based world, and we follow a sequence in everything we do. That is why that the process needs to be sequenced, so it can be duplicable. If you cannot duplicate what you are doing, then you will have a hard time building any kind of a long term home business.

A step by step system should include prospecting, recruiting, presneting, following up, closing, and building teams. These are critical to have step by step.

2. Social Media Presence.

In today’s Home Business world, you MUST have a social media presence and training on how to work facebook, twitter, LinkedIn, youtube, Google+, Orkut, and a host of other social media site. This will keep the training up to date with what is happening in the home business profession and keep you on track with your training,

I suggest that you not only train your folks on how to set up accounts, but also step by step on recruiting as well as team building in social media. If you give your oflsk what they need to go out and be social, your home business training will rock.

3. Training done on videos.

This is critical. Many home business companies have training manuals and CDs, and events. But you MUST HAVE videos online in order to really be keeping up with the home business trends. many home based business owners are demanding that they get video based training and if you do not have it, they will either do it themselves, or move on.

It does not take a lot of time to record a training video. But the impact it has is far more than just text training.

4. Tools to Teach.

Every GREAT Home Business Training has Tools that the new person can use and master. These include cds, dvds, brochures, training manuals, online training, video trainings, conference calls training, Saturday Training events, and one on one teachings.

There is a saying that I love — “It’s not just about Talent, but TOOLS.”Home business Training Tools are necessary to bridge the gap between inexperience, and experience with the new distributor. And one of the most powerful tools you can have at the start is a CD that you can listen to while in the car or a video you can watch on your G4 phone.. This is a great way to learn the business, and get the information inside your soul.

5.  A Sure Success Path.

Every home business distributor needs a Success path. This is a Path that they travel, to hit the first goal or promotion in the Compensation plan. It has daily goals, daily activities, time lines, how many calls a day, how many sales a week, how many recruits a month, and how much volume a month. This Success Path will be a day by day, call by call, action by action plan that will actually steer the new person to Success over a period of time. It also includes a day by day Personal Development Program that develops the new distributor on the inside.

A Success Path is only a Path, and not a magic bullet. It is up to the new person to walk it. Most new home business distributors and consultants will, if given the opportunity, and the road to travel.

6. Complete Content.

Many home business companies I have been blessed to work with lacked COMPLETE HOME BUSINESS training in their programs. They had some format of training, but not covering ALL aspects of what a new distributor needs. This should include training even on what to do on a daily basis, product training, corporate training, compensation training, and even the start of Leadership training.

The question all training should answer is “What do I do next?” If that question is answered, then you can pretty much bet that the home business training program is close to complete if not totally complete.

7. Role Playing that is done LIVE and in Front of Peers.

There is NOTHING as powerful as Role Playing with the new distributor. It gives them “Artificial Experience” that psychologically will prepare them for the real thing. It will help develop a “feeling” or “Pattern” of what to do and say, and handle any situations that come up. There is no feeling like when a new person “gets it” and understands what they are supposed to do, and how to do it, THEN doing it. It is imperative to Role Play with your new person. It gets them ready for the real thing, in a quick and powerful fashion.

Have them role play in front of their peers in meetings and events. Why? If they can do it in front of their peers with PRESSURE, they will be able to do the tasks easy when it  time is time.
These are the 7 Home Business Training Needs and what great home business training should contain. make sure that your company has these 7 BASICS of home business training, These are the foundational pieces needed to create home business success.
