Who Are Your Network Marketing Prospects? Your Best Network Marketing Prospects May Surprise You!

Why do so many people fail in network marketing? One reason is that most new affiliates fails to properly identify who their network marketing prospects are. It really isn’t their fault, because very few network marketing companies are handing out this very small but powerful piece of information.

New affiliates are typically told that their prospects are all their friends, relatives and acquaintances. This just isn’t true. Many people do not have the disciple, drive or mindset to be an entrepreneur. Some people are just meant to be employees. That is not a bad thing. Where would we be without employees in this world?

So who are the best network marketing prospects?

You best network marketing prospects are people who are currently in a network marketing business or have been in the past and those who are truly interested in using your companies product. Most people understand that those who love your company’s products are worth presenting the business opportunity to. So, I am not going to spend much time on discussing those prospects in this piece.

Many people are surprised to hear that those people who are currently involved in another network marketing company and those who may have failed in the past at network marketing make great network marketing prospects. Let’s look at both, those people who are currently involved with another company and those who have been involved. First, we’ll look at those who have been involved in network marketing in the past.

If someone has joined a network marketing company in the past we know a few things about them. We know that they understand the concept of network marketing and that they are open to this type of business model. We also know that they had a compelling reason for joining one in the past and chances are if they failed the first time around that reason still exists.

It is true that many prospects who have failed in the past with a network marketing business will be gun shy toward starting a new one but this is not an insurmountable obstacle. We should realize that product hype alone probably will not do it for most people in this category; therefore in order for us to be successful we must sell them on either ourselves or our system. People will join your organization if they see you as a leader, who can show them the way to the promise land, or if they believe your system works and is easy to duplicate.

Now, let’s look at those prospects who are currently involved with another network marketing company.

With this group your strategy should not be to tell them that your company is better than theirs. You should instead, be their friend, ask them how it’s going and be encouraging. Position yourself as a leader. Show them you care and give the some tips that will help them build their business.

By you caring about them and trying not to steal them away from their current business, some prospects will wish they had someone like you to help them in their current company. Some will just decide to leave their company and join you. For those who don’t join your business, I encourage you to continue building your relationship with them because there is a chance they will team up with you in the future. This is how many of the top business builders in the industry are able to build huge down-lines in a matter of weeks. They think long term and build lasting friendships.

You will face far less rejection and build your business much faster if you take the time to identify those who are your best prospects and stop pestering your friends and relatives.

Network Marketing Recruiting Made Simple - Be a Power House Network Marketing Recruiter

Jan 12
2009

If you’re having problems recruiting new affiliates to your network marketing business, take heart, it’s not that hard. It’s actually simple if you know how.

Network Marketing Recruiting success comes down to two things, Mindset and Marketing. Mindset has to do with taking on the posture of someone who is already successful in network marketing. You need to think like a millionaire. You not only need the millionaires mindset but you also need to position yourself as a leader. Network Marketing Recruiting, then becomes easy because people will be attracted to you.
 
The works because of the law of attraction. Perhaps, you’ve heard of attraction marketing? Well, the main core of this very successful marketing approach is that people are naturally attracted to people of higher value. So, by positioning yourself as a leader, people will be attracted to you and recruiting prospects to your network marketing business becomes simple.
 
I should say, network marketing recruiting becomes simple only if you’re presenting your opportunity to enough quality prospects. What good is being able to close the deal if a customer never walks through the door? Finding quality prospect is why you need to know how to market. There are many marketing approaches but, today, the trend is definitely towards the internet. More specifically, many people are finding tremendous success recruiting new affiliates to their network marketing businesses by taking advantage of the latest trends in social networking.
 
Savvy network marketers have found that sites like YouTube, MySpace, Facebook, Twitter and many others need to be integrated into their overall marketing strategy. There is, although, an important point that needs to be noted about using social networking to recruit prospects to a network marketing opportunity. Social networking sites are not for selling. That is called spamming!
 
So, how then do you use these sites to build your business? You make friends. Make lots of friends! After you make friends with people, you can let them know you have a blog and they can stop by if they are interested. Your blog should also be a place of value and building friendships but it is acceptable to let your visitors know you can provide them with additional information about what you are doing in business if they are interested. 
 
Using social networking  sites for the purpose of network marketing recruiting is walking a fine line. Basically, you can’t shove you opportunity in their face. If they didn’t ask to see it, don’t show it to them. If a friend wants to know what you do for a living, share it with them. 
 

If you are desperate to recruit a prospect to your network marketing company, he or she will sense that and they back away from you. If you come across as confident, and they see you as a real leader, they will be attracted to you and want to know more. 
  
You mindset must be with you at all time whether you are talking with a prospect on the phone, face to face or on a social networking site. You must be a leader all the time. Inject that winning mindset into a good online marketing strategy, which incorporates the latest trends and you’re on your way to success because network marketing recruiting becomes simple.
