MLM Holiday Recruiting.

Have you ever during the Holidays tried to recruit someone for your home based business?

Did you KNOW what to do or how to do it for your network marketing business?

Would you like to know some secrets to Holiday Recruiting in mlm?

By the way- if you are interested in Holiday Recruiting secrets, go to: Holiday Recruiting Secrets.

This has holiday tips from Myself, Diane Hochman, and over 30 super stars in our profession that have given some HOT holiday Recruiting tips. CHECK IT OUT as it has over 4 hours of tips!

The holidays are a great time to network and recruit. I know. Some folks say the opposite. But I recruited for 4 years in a row someone – ON CHRISTMAS EVE! It is not hard to do. And these 10 Holiday Recruiting Tips I believe will help you in your holiday business building for your home business.

Here are 10 “Holiday Recruiting  Secrets” for the Holiday Season and beyond!

1.  Always seek out the Host and thank them for putting this on.

This is critical in ANY meeting or event during the holidays. ALWAYS make sure they know that you are there and hold a conversation with them as they may be an influencer and know the person you are looking for. And if you are the host, seek out the Influencers and spend some time with them.  Get to know them. Ask them if you can take them to lunch after the holidays to chat.

If you are on an online event, make sure you contact the host/ trainer of the event and thank them and get to know them. “Social Up” with them and connect with them to form a “Social Web” and eventually take it offline if possible.

2.  Always be the first to break the ice.

Whether you are on a social site, or offline, approach people with a simple, “Hey! I have not met you. My name is <   >  what is yours?”

Or….”Hey!  I have not had the honor of meeting you and would love to connect online. Are you on facebook or Google+? I love your photos you have been sharing. Here s my twitter / facebook name….”

3.   Always use the “W5” Networking template in Holiday Live Networking environments that you do not know people.

Always ask “Who – What – When – Where – Why.”

Who do you WORK for or With?

What do you do?

When did you start <or start your company>?”

Where is it located?

Why do you work there?   <Why did you start your company?>” if they own the company. Get their contact information.

4.  Always ask for a “Contact Number” or a “Mobile Number” NEVER a telephone number.

“I have really enjoyed this conversation. Just curious would love to chat again. Do you have a contact/mobile number/card?”

Here is a MILLION DOLLAR SECRET for LIVE Offline Holiday Recruiting:

Get your mobile phone out, ask them “Do you have a contact number? I would like to lock it in my phone.”

5. Always set a Goal for Holiday Contact Acquisition.

Contact Acquisition is THE ENGINE for your LIVE Networking Success. This alone will keep you FOCUSED on WHY you are there and not to spend all your time with one person. Set a goal for at least 3 contacts and hour. This will provide you ample time to hold a good conversation with folks and move on to the next one.

If online, set a goal to connect with at least 5 new people every session.

6. Always “Boomerang Your Network” before you leave the Holiday Networking event.

Find the people you connected with, and thank them again for their time. Make sure you do this, as it “reconnects” the conversation to the prospect. This is a boomerang for connections.

This  says three things:

You are truly a professional, you care about them and their success, and you look forward to connecting  again after the first of the year. That sets you apart as well as 95% of people do NOT do this.

7. Always get their Social Media and Mobile info and  connect with them the next day.

You  are starting to build a “Credibility Net” and you will be remembered for being so  prompt in the social world. Thank them again for their time and send them a classic  Success audio mp3- “The Strangest Secret” by Earl Nightingale.

8. Ask some “Drill Down Questions” during the Holiday Recruiting conversations.

“That  is interesting. Tell me more…”

“What  happened after that?”

“What  were you thinking at that point?”

“Where  do you see yourself with your company 3 years from now?”

If online, same thing- keep it focused on THEM and what they are holding a conversation about.

9. Always Listen First when approaching an  Influencer’s “circle” and then introduce yourself to them when and opening  occurs.

In  the Holiday Recruiting LIVE Networking world, there are “Conversation Circles” that happen when an Influencer  is speaking.

FOCUS on who the Influencers are, and then become a “passionate listener.”  Approve of their conversation by smiling, and nodding your head. Yes this is  elementary, but you would be shocked at the number of folks that do NOT do  that.

And if you are on social media, let them know- “I agree!” ‘You are so right!” “Totally on target.” You get the drift.

10. Send them a text to their mobile 48 hours  after the event saying you enjoyed the event, suggesting a lunch and you BUY.

“I  really enjoyed the event and great talking to you and connecting. Let’s connect at lunch soon- I am  buying.”

This  will show them you are serious about your building a relationship, and will show  you are a true professional as well in mlm network marketing home business.

MLM Recruiting- A Powerful Secret to Recuiting: Re-Creating a Future

mlm recruiting home business

mlm recruiting training

MLM Recruiting Tips.

Do you recruit daily for your home based business?

How do you recruit online or offline or both for your mlm business?

Is your network marketing business focused on sponsoring people or just selling people?

Recruiting in a home business is something that is about many things and can be done in many ways. But the secret to recruiting is moving a dream into a REAL possibility, and a REAL destiny.

And that is what this post is about:  Re-Creating a destiny that most people thought was not possible any longer. Many people’s dream machines are broken and they no longer engage their imagination to focus and blueprint their life. They have a tendency to give up and give in tot life and it’s negatives.

YOU must rise above that, and help people in a way that will help them to restore and recreate their dreams and destiny and then help them move along to those goals and dreams.

There is a reality in home business recruiting that many people seem to miss in out profession:

 It’s no longer just about Recruiting-but about Re-Creating.

What doe that mean? What does that LOOK LIKE?

Great question. Here are some examples that will help you understand:

Apple Ipod recreated how music was listened to.

Flip Video camera recreated how videos were taken and uploaded.

Youtube recreated how videos were watched.

Myspace, Plaxo,  and Facebook recreated how people connected.

Twitter recreated how people communicated.

Pinterest recreated how picures and image were shared.

Instagram changed how photos were sent via mobile.

Web logs (blogs) recreated how news was read.

Basecamp recreated how projects were done jointly.

Podcasting recreated how people learned.

And the list is almost endless in today’s marketplace. And no one had to be recruited. No one had to be pressured.

NOTE: Recreate something that will add value to life in a unique and powerful way and people will recruit themselves.

You will not have to enroll anyone, as they will enroll themselves.

What is it that YOU can do, help with, or bring to the table that will help people recreate and resurrect their dreams in their mind and life?

What is it that your product or business can do that will help recreate how things are done, how people live, how people operate their business, and how income can be obtained?

Move beyond just being a distributor. Anyone can be a distributor or consultant. Move beyond the typical representative for a company.

 Move up to a higher level of Home Business. Move past where everyone else is and move to a place that most will never aspire for.

Don’t just be a recruiter. Become a Re-creator and help people recreate their life and living to be something they never thought possible.

If you do that, you will have people beating down your door to enroll in your business.

Yes it will take some serious thought, but all great marketing campaigns do.

Tell them how your products help recreate how life is lived.

Tell them how your products help recreate how nutrition is dispensed in their bodies.

Tell them how your skin care products help recreate a more beautiful look and feel.

Tell them how your anti aging products help recreate their lost youth.

Tell them how your travel products help recreate exciting relationships that have gone stale.

And tell them how your business can help recreate a dream that maybe they lost years ago of financial freedom.

Move up to a higher level of Recruiting – to the level of Re-creating. Then let your prospects recruit themselves in your mlm network marketing home business.

MLM Training- FREEDOM- The Secret Weapon to MLM Success

MLM Freedom Success Training.

Are you the MASTER of your destiny or someone else in your home business?

What direction are you moving or are you moving in the WRONG direction in your network marketing business?

How do you work in your mlm business?

FREEDOM is what it is all about. It is what America is about. And it is what a home business is about. But many for whatever reason do not get that.


There is something that was written and I have had it for a while, and wanted to share it with you as IT MAKES YOU THINK.

And it also will clarify some things that maybe you were missing in your mlm business. It truly is something that caught my attention and I know it will catch yours. And not let go.

Here is a post from an unknown author that I believe will help you in your success efforts and understanding WHY we all have a home based business!

FREEDOM (author unknown)

In the United States of America lies a large industrial city which is the sight of one of the
world’s largest slave labor camps.

Located in and around the center of this city are community settlements where the slaves live.

Each morning the slaves move herd-like from their quarters into the slave labor camps.

Each one is at his or her station by 7:30 AM. Here they report to their master for the day’s
duties. And here they remain chained until 5:00 PM when they’re released to go home.

The slaves have no choice as to how many hours they must labor. Sometimes they are required to work overtime until their master tells them they may leave and go home.

Each year the slaves are told when to take their vacations, for how long, and when they
must return.

They have little choice as to how much money they earn as they are paid not what they are worth, but what the job is worth.

They are allowed very little time for lunch and coffee breaks during the labor hours.

The slaves will remain in their chains in great fear because the master can punish them with the “firing” or “layoff” whip.

It is said that even some of the older slaves who have been good and faithful have felt the sting
of the whip.

Day by day, year-by-year, the slaves toil and grow older until the master decides it is time to
release them to the retirement camps where they’re forced to sit idle and wait for death.

It’s a well-known fact that the old slaves who try to keep working are sometimes whipped with a “stop-their-pension” whip.

I know these slave camps exist for I once was a slave.

But now I am a free man who lives among the slaves.

The reason I am free is because I am in business for myself as a Home Business  Professional whether Network Marketing, Direct sales, MLM, Party Plan, Affiliate Marketing, Social Media Marketing, or a traditional in home business.

Yes, I am truly free. I arise in the morning called for by my schedule.

I decide my own hours. I can even sleep in late while the slaves are at work.

I can vacation when, where, and for how long I please.

I’m free to take my coffee break and lunch when I decide.

And of course, I can decide my own paycheck because I am not a slave.

I can choose to work when and where I please and with whom I please.

I’m free to stay in the city for as long as I want, or to move on to greener pastures if I
decide to.

I’ve seen many slaves sadly pack their belongings to leave their city in search of a new master,
but it is always the same.

There is however, a ray of hope for the slave.

He or she can buy their own freedom.

The cost is not high, yet it seems high to those who do not have the courage to pay the price.

What is the price?

One must be willing to be their own master.


This is a great post for FREEDOM for your mlm network marketing home based business.

7 Powerful Ways to Open Up a Recruiting Conversation

MLM Recruiting- What is YOUR MLM Recruiting Plan?

mlm recruiting

mlm network marketeing

In your MLM Recruiting Plan…

Do you have a recrruiting plan for your MLM business?

Do you have ANY kind of Plan for your recruiting for your home business?

What would BE a good plan when recruiting in network marketing?

Darren Hardy, CEO of Success Magazine, suggests to approach  recruiting like dating.

He stated that you need to figure out what your ideal match or business partner would be like, what exact qualities do you want in your new business partner and seek out  prospects with those attributes.

Secondly Darren suggest to list in your  MLM Recruiting plan the key initiatives your new prospect will  have to  accomplish when they join your team and know this before you go out and look for them.

Next, and I Love this suggestion…..write down in a  detailed job description what kind of person would be best in your organization.  This is a great exercise because  it will get you really clear about what specifically you need and what success in your business looks like.  It will give you a roadmap for what needs to be done once they join your MLM business .  He goes on to say to write a Mission Statement and what it is going to take to
achieve thisMission.

Some of the advantages about creating An MLM Recruiting Plan

…are  that it will help you clearly identify who you are looking for. If you don’t know who you are looking  for you will not know it when you run into them.  It is more efficient to find someone who already has the key attributes you are looking for then to try to train someone to learn these qualities.

Another great idea for your MLM  Recruiting Plan

…is to list all the attributes, attitudes and mindsets one needs to work to be successful in your business.

Know that you are looking for, a sharp individual who is  a friendly outgoing person and who has the desire to  help others achieve success, then you can ask other people if they know anyone who has these qualities and that you would appreciate if you can send them your way.  This will enable you to  get free referrals to recruit into your business.

Here are some suggestions for  attributes you can seek in individuals for your MLM Business


Self start

Professionally polished

Love to be of service to others

A leader

Someone who is a good presenter or public speaker

When you talk to these referral,  you can start out the conversation by saying –  “I was told that you are a self starter, very sharp and assertive individual who is always looking to make more money or what every attributes you are seeking and start your conversation from there.”

People would love to share how they have these great characteristic and it opens the door to find out if they have a need or desire for change in their lives and to be a part of your business.
Some people do suggest using use the “FORM Technique” to really get to know this person and uncover what their needs and desires are.

Having  an MLM Recruiting Plan in place as another tools for find success in this

Well as always I hope that this helps and I look forward to getting to know more about you in the future. Please share your thoughts on this idea below and if you think this
will be helpful for other  please pass it on to your mlm network marketing home business professionals.

Six Secrets to Twitter Success in your MLM Home Business

MLM Training- The Most Powerful Way to Comment on a Blog That Gets NOTICED

MLM Blog training.

Are you looking for the most powerful way to  comment on a blog post in home business?

Would you like to know how to INSURE your comment gets noticed?

How would getting a SURE comment back from others helo your traffic in your network marketing efforts?

Here is a secret:

“Commenting on people’s blogs is a great prospecting tool. But you MUST use a Social Magnetic Prospecting Tool on their blog that can GUARANTEE the blog owner get back with you and ask questions.”

I remember back in the early 2000s the first time I heard the word “blog.”

I was like…what? I laughed as it sounded so funny to me. But when I found out what it was, I got so excited that I could not sleep for days.

I saw the power within the blog for the Home Business Profession and MLM. Wow. It blew me away. I started training after the learning the ropes, how to use a blog for our profession and since then blogging has gotten to be HUGE.

Commenting on someone’s blog is a nice way to create an awareness that you are there and start a conversation with the owner. But there is a very simple tool that can GUARANTEE
a response in your prospecting efforts on their blog and most people do NOT do

What is it?

ASK A QUESTION on what they wrote and make it a VALID SINCERE question that they will feel flattered that you asked.

READ the post all the way through and then ask a question about something that will create a conversation between you and that person.

One of the bggest mistakes made is commenting on something that you have not read, and it happens as lot. And it looks rather foolish that you have not taken the time to actually read it and know it.

What would you think if someone made a comment on your blog and it was nowhere near the content provided?

You would think that it was a someone tht was simply trying to spam your wall and even may be a “bot.”

Read it all the way through and KNOW the content and what you are commenting on.


This is how you do it. I have asked a TON of questions on different people’s blogs and have ended up getting a lot of business from it. They went to my website and saw my profile
on facebook and Linkedin and the next thing I know I am getting an email form


And it has worked like crazy for my private clients as well.

Do NOT be afraid to let yourself succeed. That is what is missing in most lives. Permission from US to allow ourselves to succeed.

Allow and then SOAR in to a new level of mlm network marketing home business.

MLM Training- The 2 Types of MLM Prospects and What NOT To Do

mlm network marketing prospects

mlm home business

MLM Prospecting Tips.

Quit looking for people that you are looking for, and start looking for people that are looking for you.

  This will require you practicing what we call “Recruiting MagneTechs” in the social media zone.

There are many distributors in Network Marketing that continually call back their prospects that have become a part of the witness protection plan. They seemed to have fallen off the face of the earth.

But they keep calling…and calling…and calling…and calling.

Are you doing that?

Are you constantly trying to call people and tell them your story, and they are always disappearing on you? That is what many distributors do. And
you cannot afford to make that huge mistake.

The traditional method of Network Marketing works- for some people, but not for all. And the ones that it works for, only works for a while, as the number of warm market they have continually grows smaller. And that is why the distributor is constantly looking for ANYONE who will listen to their story, and give them some time. That is why many people talk to the wrong people- they try and recruit anyone who will talk with them.

But you should not fall into that trap as new methods and strategies have been
developed so you do not have to get into what we call “Net-beg Marketing.”

 YOU are NOT a person who Begs for anything.

 YOU are NOT begging for business.

 YOU are a NOT begging for someone to talk to.

 You are NOT begging for appointments.

 Many folks when they start following up on their prospects, they go into the “begging
mode” which is less than attractive to the prospect. Leaders do not beg- they talk to prospects that want to talk to them. That is the difference between the average and the wealthy.

Yes, you need to talk to prospects and follow up with them, but Leaders understand there
are two types of people – that happen to be  two philosophies as well- for prospecting.

There are 2 types of people

1)   The person you are looking for to enroll in your business that may or may not be interested, and you have to convince them that your business and products are what they need.

2)   The person that is looking for you, as they are looking for a home business, and/or the benefits of the products you are marketing and that person is willing to take action now.

Here is the Million Dollar Question:

 Which one makes more sense to try to recruit?

The answer is obvious for your mlm network marketing home business.
