I was so tickled with this approach I was exposed to that I figured I would blog about it. I was insulted by someone that I thought was a professional in the industry but not so much. I would never join up and partner with this person even if I was paid to join the opportunity just because I do not like his approach at all. You can’t force or insult your recruits to join with you. That’s just not setting yourself up to win.
You know once you find your perfect network marketing company to promote and you get baptized into that companies philosophy, it may be a bit hard for you to hear someone tell you “No its not for me.”
Get over it! Everybody you talk to, in fact 9 out of 10 of them will not want to join your business so get over it. One thing I’m going to suggest that you don’t do is to try to insult the person or make them feel like an idiot or that they are nuts etc. for not joining your business. Everyone has their own ideas and values that attract them to certain businesses and yours may not be the one for them.
Another point is insulting the person or making them feel like they are an idiot for not joining with you will only leave a bad taste in that prospects mouth about you and your professionalism and possibly your company as a whole.
One of the things I do when prospecting with people is leave the door open for another chance to talk with them in the future. something like this “Well hey John I see the timing is not right for you right now, do you mind if I follow up with you in a few months to see if anything has changed and to also update you on my success?”
This will let your prospect know you are professional and plan to be around and having success with your business. Now its your job to go out and have some success with your company
Is your marketing funnel system set up properly? I was asking a potential student of mine what their conversion rates where and all I got was silence. This is one of the biggest mistakes network marketers make…not understanding marketing and running the biz like a biz.
So let’s cut to it. You should have a lot of moving parts to your marketing funnel system. I’ll name the most important ones here:
- opt in/lead capture page
- funded proposal
- kick ass offer
- automated marketing system
- your main core product/service
- automated follow up system
- targeted website traffic
These are pretty much the basics to have a well constructed marketing funnel system. The key is to get all of this set up and working for you on auto pilot so that you can do what you want to do and not have to watch over your biz like its a job. That’s the whole reason we are in network marketing…right…for TIME FREEDOM BABY!
My next few blog posts will go more in depth on each of these pointers to help you get a better overall picture of the whole thing.
