You know I hear it all the time… “Well… can you give me a guarantee I’ll make money if I join your business.” “How much money are you making?” “When I see how much money you are making and you can guarantee I’ll make money, then I’ll join.”
Folks, that’s just pure old employee mentality talking to you. It’s the old safe secure job with “what kind of benefits package do I get, how much vacation time” etc. talk.
Entrepreneurs don’t think that way…
Imagine all the entrepreneurs of the world saying… “Well I’ll start my business when I have a guarantee that I’ll make money, survive the first 3-5 years, make a profit, and have health benefits without having to mortgage my house for startup capital.” “Okay?”
Or imagine if you will for a minute, the bank saying… “Well George, we’ll lend you the money for your new venture when you can guarantee you are going to survive the 3-5 year normal startup phase be profitable quickly, and you can guarantee this. When you can do all that and document it, come back in and I’m sure we will be able to work something out for you.”
Could you imagine that?
The whole economy would come to a screeching halt! It’s absurd to think isn’t it? People like that didn’t build this Great Nation!
And yet how many times is that exactly the attitude you get from people you may be MLM prospecting tips as partners for your business?
Unfortunately so many people are blinded by this nonsense mentality, and it stands between them and the abundance in life they desire. They want handouts, guarantees, and a nice tight tidy world without surprises.
I’ve got news for them… There is no such thing. It’s an illusion. It doesn’t exist. Even that old wives tale about “go to school, get good grades, so you can find a nice safe secure job with good benefits, and then save your money so you can retire” nonsense they have been selling people for decades is losing its luster. People have come face to face with the truth that there is something seriously marred with this old adage and at last they are beginning to admit it.
Times have changed, the world has changed, and the nature of money, employment, investment, and what is safe secure and makes good sense has changed.
Essentially you have two MLM recruiting choices here that you can pick from:
- MLM Tip: Educate
- MLM Tip: Relegate
MLM Prospecting Option #1 Educate:
Become a resource for your prospect. Help them. Remember in MLM prospecting that you are a problem solver not a salesman.
Point them in the direction of the facts and the data. Educate and enlighten them to the realities of the economy, the dollar, the worldwide economic network we now live in that has changed everything, the merits of MLM, etc. Show them that you care, that you are trustworthy, and you are someone who can help them achieve success.
You need to take advantage of third party MLM resources or tools to do this or it will drain your time and energy that you are better off spending elsewhere if you are going to be growing a Network Marketing business. It is best to have this process automatically programmed into your automated MLM sales funnel for the greatest efficiency and results.
MLM Recruiting Option #2 Relegate:
Relegate these lesser qualified MLM prospects to the trash heap and continue sifting for higher quality prospects. Run the numbers and the high quality MLM prospects you are looking for will fall out.
If you seem to be getting a predominant number of these lower qualified MLM prospects in your prospecting efforts, then perhaps it is time to get some training to either one increase your attractiveness to higher qualified prospects, and/or two, employ some specific strategies to target and recruit them into your Network Marketing business.
