MLM Success Secret 1:

Understand the Psychology of People During Tough Economic times.

People today are worried about their income and lifestyle. It is that simple. They are worried about being laid off, not being able to pay their bills, and what the future holds. Let’s be real folks…The last thing they want from a network marketing professional  is a “pitch.” ‘Pitching” people during “Tough Economic Times” (TET) is the last thing you want to do.
People you talk to want more than to be another “pitch’ or presentation.

They are looking for CONNECTION to something that will guide them and lead them to a more powerful income possibility and more secure future for their family. People today aren not looking for another “job,” but something beyond that. Something that makes sense to them. Something that they feel can move them forward during these TET.
You want to CONNECT to them, and then CONNECT them to an emotion that says ‘Things are going to be OK.” You need to be understanding, and empathetic to the prospect, and come across like you care.
Do NOT pitch the prospect. Listen. Empathize. Understand. Offer a path out of the worry they are feeling.
MLM Success Secret 2:

Deal in Reality- NOT Misery.

 When you are talking to your prospect, do not agree with their misery if they are talking that way. Deal in a NEW reality -the reality that they can change their position and place in this economy with your help.  Most people are dealing in a Misery of FEAR. You need to move them past that fear. You need to move them past that emotion. You need to get them to see that there is a Success Reality that is available and not just an economic misery. 
Give them a DOOR- Dose Of Ongoing Reality

And lead them through that door with showing them how normal and average people that are in your company, are getting past the misery and fear that you see all over the media. Let them know that they do not have to settle for what the media and news is telling them.
Reality is what you decide it is. Let them know that. What is REAL for you, is what you decide is real. Success is as real during tough times as it is during prosperous times. Show them the way. Give them a path. Open the door. Lead them through it.  Say, “You can have the life that you want, and during tough times, it is easier than during great times. More people are open to change and doing something different.”  Give them the Reality of Hope and keep them focused on that. 
MLM Success Secret 3:

There were more Millionaires Birthed during the Great Depression than any other 7 year period in the history of our country.

 This secret is HUGE. When you are talking with folks, you need to say that. “You may not be aware of it, but there were more millionaires created during the Great Depression than any other time in our nation’s history. This is THE time right now- to start creating wealth in our lives. You just need a direction and a plan-would you agree?”
TET are what you are looking to change as a marketer.

You need to change the Great Depression to the Great Incubator.

During these times, you are going to be either outside of the Millionaire Incubator, or INSIDE of the Millionaire Incubator. You need to ask what makes more sense to the prospect.
“Which makes more sense to you? Taking advantage of these economic times, or letting them take advantage of you?”
The LISTEN to what they say.
Their answer will speak volumes.

These are three secrets for getting through tough times in your network marketing home business.

    Doug how do you come up with this stuff ?
    Always a bullseye every time you contribute
    Value into all of us.
    The depth of your understanding of human
    nature, and ability to communicate to us
    so that “we get it”, on virtually any subject
    in NWM.
    Continously adds so much value to changing
    how I talk to people, how I’m received, how
    I’m learning a complete “language makeover”
    that is very helpful to me, and I’m sure to many
    many others as well.
    Thank you.

    • Tim, I give God the credit! Not me! Thank you for your kind words and always staying connected!
      I always smile at your comments as they really are always a blessing! thanks doug
