Sponsor up! No, talk to everybody.
I’ve had it with this nonsense.
I’m Sick and Tired of this Debate!
So totally sick of it.
Why is this even an issue after 50+ years? Good grief.
With a little common sense and the right words to say to ‘suspects’ why would some ever consider NOT running their business ‘up the flag pole and see who salutes it?’
Course the folks selling magic systems and leads want you to believe otherwise. Why?
The more people they can knock off your list in your mind before you begin, the faster they can sell you their shit. Not rocket science.
Look, everybody knows, if we’re gonna make some money, we need to talk to people.
But almost within minutes of getting enrolled, we begin thinking of who we should talk to.
And we ask our upline…and the debate begins.
Hey, I was the same way too back in 1993, until someone asked me a question. One of our daughters, Jackie, likes to say, “your life’s a freakin’ fairy tale.”
It is. But what is important is how one idea shifted us from debt and desperation to peace and prosperity.
So don’t think the advice you give can’t make a difference.
This should settle the debate if you’re having one.
The Perfect Network Marketing Prospect…or Perfect Words?
Building any business takes some skill and network marketing isn’t any different than any other business in principle.
How to get people to say ‘yes’ is easy, once you know the free network marketing skill. Actually two network marketing skills.
I just took a shot with everyone and with one exception, each 6 figure earner we found personally came via people who most people would not bother with today.
How do you get a yes in less than 30 seconds?
This sponsoring up nonsense ALWAYS, (yes, I’m yelling) leads to the same tragic end.
The ‘right people’ list gets shorter and shorter and shorter. We don’t even realize this is really avoiding talking to people. In and of itself, that’s not good, but where it leads is a business killer.
It ALWAYS leads the search for the ‘perfect prospect’ …who doesn’t exist.
When people in your group tell you they are all done talking to ‘this type’ or ‘that type’ and they are going to ‘sponsor up’ …a screaming red light should go off. What they are really saying is they are done talking to people. Every-single-time it means precisely that. Period.
The perfect prospect does not exist…UNTIL we talk to them. And if we choose the right words, (you’ll find them in the networking skills), they BECOME a good prospect AFTER we talk to them.
When you increase the number of people who look, two great things happen.
- You increase the number of decisions you collect. And that’s our job. More decisions mean more money.
- You increase the exposure to your business and your list.
People lead to people. That, in fact, is network marketing.
Once they say yes, you show them duplication is ‘caught, not taught’ and the checks just keep getting better.
