Building your company…
You must reach as many people as you can. This is a numbers game, as you already know. Take Dominoes, Mom and Pop Griddles and other businesses. They don’t send out one flyer in the hopes that one person comes to see them, they print and send out thousands of flyer with the hopes that a % of people come in for some good food.
It’s the same deal with your Network Marketing Company. Talk to everyone. Why not, what’s the worst thing that can happen, they say NO? Then you know where you stand and you can move on.
Time to get past them. Excuses are for people that WON’T succeed. It is a subconscious choice. Well, I was going to go to that training but my favorite game show was on, I couldn’t get a ride, I had to work out or whatever. All that tells the leaders — “I’m not willing to do what it takes to succeed” Don’t get me wrong, there are circumstances when you really can’t make an event or training. But when you aren’t getting the results you want and you aren’t getting training because you are making the excuses, then there is only one person to blame.
Get on the phone.
Talk to people on the phone. It’s really not that bad, LOL. Get with your up-lines, they will help you with scripts. Here is an easy one… Someone opt-in to your auto-responder: “Hey, (prospect) this is (your name) I saw that you filled out a form for information on one of my adds (or you can name your company – up to you), how can I help you?”
You are you already letting them know you are there to help them. See my blog on You vs. The Phone.
There’s nothing worse than psyching yourself up, thinking someone is a shoe-in and they NO. Personally, I go in to every conversation, not really caring. It helps with your confidence. If they say yes, awesome…if they no, oh well. When you are talking to someone and you think they are coming on because they are your friend and they say No, you are disappointed right? Unless you are an Oscar winning actor/actress, it will show in your voice/face and conversation. They will know it bothered you and it may make it awkward the next time you all hang out.
Get it? Remember, if they come in – great….if not – that’s great too.
Supposed to be fun.
You are told that Network Marketing is fun. It is, it’s lots of fun. You meet great people, you should be getting a great product that you believe in, you have an unlimited amount of wealth to gather…money and education. So why do people get frustrated. They make it a job. Why do people get into NM? They don’t want to work a job.
Keep this fun, Think about it this way, for every “No” you get, you are one step closer to getting a “Yes”. Here’s something else, there is nothing better than remembering those people who say you won’t succeed and when you are succeeding…call them and let them know how YOU are doing, LOL.
Stop trying to learn everything.
You don’t need to know everything. You company should be stock full of tools that will explain everything. Weekly to bi-weekly webinars, pre-recorded presentations, pamphlets, CDs, DVDs, etc…
Don’t worry, it will all come to you as you go through the system. Work the system, don’t let it work you.
If a leader gives you advice, take it. They are successful for a reason. It is in their best interest for you to succeed. You know this right? You make money and everyone makes money. They show you how to be successful and your show your team how to be successful. It’s simple actually.
I hope you got something out this.
Have an opinion, I would love to hear it. Leave a comment.
