MLM Prospecting Made Easy

If you’re a MLM entrepreneur, you know that one of the most critical parts of your business is getting your opportunity in front of lots of prospects. MLM Prospecting for most new affiliates is not easy. In fact, most MLM affiliates never learn to be good at it and that is why the success rate in the network marketing industry is so low. With so many people failing in this industry it is understandable that so many people have such a negative opinions of MLM businesses.

Your success in network marketing is dependent on being able to find a constant stream of quality prospects to present your opportunity to. The top earners in the industry have figured out how to do this but unfortunately the great majority of MLM distributors have not.

So, what is the secret to MLM prospecting?

Let me begin by telling you what successful MLM prospecting is not. It is not making a list of all your friends, relatives and acquaintances. It is not going to the local mall to hand out fliers. It is not walking through parking lots and putting business cards on windshields. It is not cold calling purchased leads.

The most successful MLM entrepreneur’s, those making more than $20,000 per month, understand that successful prospecting revolves around building relationships. If you can first develop the trust and faith of your prospects then it is much easier to get them to take a serious look at your opportunity. That relationship building can take place online or in face to face meetings.

The best place to build this trust is in social networks. Social networks are about making friends and helping each other. There are online networks such as Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and Forums and there are business networking groups in your community and around the country that you can attend.

The key is to go into these networking circles and not try to sell your product. Instead, you should sell yourself by positioning yourself as a leader, giving away free advice and just making friends.

As you make friends, some will want to know more about what you do for a living. Those that are interested in your business will ask or, if online, may just click through to some of your other websites to learn more. This process of selling yourself, building relationships, and attracting others to you is called attraction marketing.

For those who can not easily get away from the home often, such as stay home mom’s or people with disabilities, the online networking rout can be very appealing. For those with a fear of technology, the face to face networking approach might be less intimidating.

For the majority of top MLM entrepreneurs, it is some combination of both. Remember, the key is in building relationships and making friends. Nobody wants to be sold.

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

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.

Where the New MLM Leaders Play - Visit Their MLM Field of Dreams

Jan 05
2009

There is a new breed of MLM entrepreneurs and they are putting old school business building methods behind them. 

MLM leaders today are playing in a whole new league, it the called the Internet. It’s an international league and there are many star players.

Slowly, the old stadiums are being torn down and new ones are going up. The new stadiums have all the bells and whistles and the player’s club houses have all the tools the players needs to succeed right at their finger tips. 

It’s both sad and exciting at the same time

Oh, but the fans come out in the thousands, they visit their MLM leaders on their home fields. Today, the term field is often replaced with blog. Go figure? Fans hold up signs and shout words of encouragement to their favorite players.

Occasionally, some real kooks will show up. Some get rowdy and make a spectacle of themselves. Some even streak across stadiums tying to promote their own agenda. When that happens the security staff is usually quick to take care of them.

There are also a lot of great away parks that our leaders visit frequently such as YouTube Stadium, MySpace Yards, Twitter Memorial Coliseum and “The House that Zuckerberg Built”, Facebook Stadium.

Making the majors doesn’t come easy. These players had to work long and hard to develop their skills. They have had to master the skills of building brand identity, attraction marketing, copy writing, jv negotiations, article writing, capture page development, press releases, video production, article writing and so much more.

Players today do quite well for themselves. They generate several income streams. Many sign profit sharing contracts known in the league as affiliate agreements.

The MLM leaders have great fan clubs and they take care of their fans by sending them lots of great information. Of course, because of the size of their fan bases, they need to hire administrators to keep up with the daily fan follow-up. A couple of the best Fan Club Directors are Mr. A.Weber and Mrs. G. Response. It’s amazing how they find time to send out all those personalized emails everyday to so many fans.

The All Stars have incorporated their own names, sell their own product lines and run their own training camps. They get paid the big bucks and they deserve every penny.

This internet league is exciting and dynamic. Stars are being born every day and new stadiums are going up. They are truly playing on their field of dreams. They are having fun and watching their dreams come true.
