After joining our program, the distributor said …

“I’ve been to the training, used the products and talked to prospects. So where am I on the ladder to success?”

“The bottom step,” I replied. “If that bothers you, remember, most people don’t even have a ladder.

Sponsoring isn’t like selling.

When you buy something, you give the seller some money, receive your merchandise, and the deal is completed. That’s it.

When someone asks you to join their network marketing company, this isn’t a simple, one-time transaction. You are being asked for a long-term commitment. You’ll want to know more about the program, the people involved, etc. You want to be comfortable with everything before you make this major decision.

That’s why “selling” doesn’t work well when sponsoring prospects.

What does work is “relationships.” Your prospects will join if they know, like, and trust you. This is why people join.

If you want to be an effective recruiter, concentrate more on relationships and less on features, benefits, and facts about your program.

Save time and help your distributors sponsor more.

If you use conference calls, consider this idea.

Have two separate training calls.

Call #1: For distributors who have sponsored less than four people.
Call #2: For distributors who have sponsored four or more people.

Your training can be more focused on each group’s needs, but the big benefit is that everyone on Call #1 wants to graduate to Call #2.

They’ll stretch their comfort zone and try to sponsor their four distributors right away – so they can be on the call with the leaders and learn the really great stuff.

Conference call training saves money on hotel rooms, long distance traveling, and gives you more free time. A single training once a week can reach everyone in your downline.

One of my favorite quotes?

It’s hard to say which quote is my favorite. I have so many that I enjoy.

Here is one quote that is certainly one of my favorites. It helps me look at new possibilities and practice tolerance for others’ beliefs.

Richard Brooke wrote:

“As humans, we are incredibly closed-minded and arrogant. We actually believe that what we think is the truth is TRUE, and that what someone else believes is just THEIR OPINION. This arrogance and foolishness sticks us with our beliefs, blinding us to any other possibilities – possibilities that may propel us toward success.”

When listening to someone’s strange viewpoints, I pause, think of this quote, and try to understand how this person came to create these strange viewpoints.

Network Marketing Tips

Use common sense.

“Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth, but do check for Greek soldiers elsewhere in its anatomy.”

Yes, we should be open-minded, but not so open-minded that our brains fall out. A little common sense goes a long way in our business.
