Do This and Explode your Business – The New Paradigm for MLM Business
As network marketers, we are constantly looking to improve our game and conversions. There’s many ways people go about promoting their business, whether it’s online or offline, which methods work the best?
There is a new generation of young network marketers who want freedom from a dull day job, like what their parents had. There is no more security in working 40 years at the same factory and retiring with a pension. Today, things are rapidly changing and the new generation don’t want to work hard. They want to work smarter and have the freedom to work on their laptops anywhere in the world they choose.
Network marketing is quickly becoming the norm on social media. Every new distributor rushes online to unfortunately SPAM their opportunity, but most settle down after a while and add more value than spam. But, what really works for some, won’t work for others. Example:
Tom has 253 Facebook friends and he has established rapport with all of them. Maybe, some of them are from his graduating class, either college or high school, or both. Maybe, he has had lengthy conversations with some of them about FORM (Family, Occupation, Recreation and Money.) When Tom posts something new people like it and share it and make comments.
Then, there’s Bob. He has 3247 Facebook friends. When he signed up with Facebook, he followed to his limit every day. Sometimes, Bob got suspended because he didn’t know who he was following, but he thought the more people, the better.
Once he built up his following, he began to SPAM. No one had really heard Bob speak “normally”, only about some opportunity to make $5000 dollars a WEEK! People didn’t listen to his SPAM because they didn’t know him, and now they REALLY don’t want to know him. How many distributors does Tom and Bob have?
This happens all the time on social media. The bottom-line: People must know, Like and Trust you in order to join your business. Yes, you can recruit new distributors just by the sheer volume of spamming to thousands of people many times a day, but how many people can duplicate that, or even want to?
I would rather have one great distributor on my team, rather than 20 who think it’s a get-rich-quick-scheme, or they SPAM just like Bob. In the long run, you can make literally millions of dollars from one great team-builder.
I heard that the founders of Amway recruited I think 4000 distributors themselves and after 50 years the original 5 people who stuck around built the Billion dollar a year empire. Impressive. It only takes 2 to 3 leaders on your team to make six-figures a year, or month. Jordan Adler, a top earner in MLM, was only making $3000 a month when he found his 16th distributor who went on to build a team of 16,000 members. Jordan’s income went from $3000 a month to $20,000 a month in a couple months.
So, what is the best way to recruit for your business? It’s the vision of what people really want. I have a friend who has $17,000 weeks. She is only 25. She doesn’t lead with the product, or even the compensation plan. She leads with the VISION. What is the vision you ask?
The vision is you painting a picture for the person interested in joining you. Find out what they want ( how they want to truly live) and paint that picture for them. One way of finding what they want is to ask. Ask questions about their life. Find the “sore spots” in their life and then ask, “If I could wave a magic wand and you had (whatever they want), would that be something you’d be interested in?”
If they say “yes” then that’s your time to arrange a time when you two can talk more extensively, or lead them to a third-party tool, like your DVD presentation, or a video. You want to establish trust first before you do any of this. It might take talking to the same person a few times before this conversation occurs.
If you see the same people everyday, like at the store, library or gym, you don’t need to rush into this type of conversation right away. Get to know these people as true friends, not merely another prospect. People can sense if you are talking from the heart, or if you are just “head hunting”. Be original, be gracious and don’t worry about making $5000 A WEEK!!! Work on your prospecting skills, work on your self-development and I will see all of you soon!
