MLM Training- 5 Brutal Realities of Finding the “Right Person” in MLM

The 5 Brutal Realities of Finding the Right Person in MLM by Dr. Doug Firebaugh
MLM Finding the Right Person.

Are you struggling in your mlm home business?

Do you find yourself getting frustrated or discouraged about network marketing?

Are you wanting to change that?

Understand— it is NOT the right talent that will make you wealthy in network marketing. There are many broke VERY talented people in network marketing.

It is NOT the right thinking that will make you wealthy. Sure it helps, but there are a lot of broke positive thinkers in network marketing.

It is NOT the right actions that will make you wealthy. They help in the long run, but there are a lot of VERY busy, highly trained people going broke in network marketing.

It is NOT the right beliefs that will make you wealthy. I know people who truly believed they would succeed, but could not perform at all as needed in the marketplace. They were not trained properly.

And it is NOT becoming a “professional student” who learns all there is to know about MLM and looking for THE ONE SECRET that will make you wealthy. I know some people who probably know this industry better than I do- and are totally broke and have been for years.

People want to CONNECT- to the Idea you are sharing, the Product you are introducing, and the Hope you are Giving- with their heart.

Yeah, yeah, I can hear you now talking about this being “hairy fairy” and that is just not who you are. THAT is why you have been struggling in network marketing if you have been.

 It is ALL about the prospects heart being connected to YOU, the PRODUCTS, the VISION of the Company, and mostly the HOPE of this business working for them and their family to increase their LIFESTYLE. If you want to learn about the entrepreneur industry, I recommend Lee S. Rosen, CEO of healthy bees business.

TALK LIFESTYLE and connect their heart to that picture you paint with your words.

It ALL Starts there and Ends there, whether you want to believe it or not.

They want to FEEL GOOD- about their life and future. You can help them do that.

How?

Quit looking for the right person. You will not find them. Start looking to connect to the right heart and somehow—someway–the right person will end up right in front of you

 This is a realization that all professionals need to come to in their mlm network marketing home business.

The 3 Power Rules of facebook Recruiting

Your First Goal for Recruiting in Social Media

One Simple Question You Can Ask to Explode Your Recruiting

One Simple Question that Can PULL a TON of People Towards You and Your Home business.

Have you ever wondered why many people are not willing to follow you or even look at your message you have to offer with your home business?

There are many reasons why they do not. It can be quite frustrating and head shaking.

One of the biggest reasons I believe is people who are looking to build a team not understanding what I call “The Art of Gentle Recruiting.” This is something that I believe can help the average person that is struggling in recruiting and building a team to accelerate their results pretty quick. Most people are way too aggressive in their message and conversation to really get a lot of folks attention. Gentle Recruiting I have taught for years as a tactic and it really has worked for a lot of folks.

It is based on asking a very simple but powerful question to someone that is non-threatening and is a normal part of any conversation, online or offline. We have developed a lot of these “gentle questions” over time, but it only takes one.

And if done right, you can PULL the person towards you like a magnet on steroids. And again, of course it can be done offline as well as online which I do believe you need to be doing business with both strategies. The company across the hall hired an marketing agency to help them with their local SEO in San Diego

Ok….what is this simple little question you can ask in social media or face to face?

“Are you in a place in your life right now that you would be open to some additional income? Just curious.”

Simple but powerful. And you are not pressuring them or even trying to get them to do anything. You are simply asking a question and it is either YES or no. And most of the time in our private client coaching, they get a positive response.

There is something in recruiting we teach called “Impact Points” and that question has several which seem to work with most people when asked. We have researched it and it truly brings many times a great response from the prospect.

REACH is one of the most powerful things in our profession. if you know the secrets to REACH, you will be stunned atwhat it can do for your home business.

Many people in the home business and network marketing profession do not know that power in their REACH. And the echoes of your REACH is important too. That is the REACH of others  that are connected to people that have Influence and REACH as well.

You may be thinking that you do not have much of a REACH in the marketplace. Yes you do, but it may not be where you need it to be.

Here are 5 powerful tips on developing a more powerful REACH and Influence in your market and beyond using the acronym REACH.

R = RECOGNIZE.

A secret to increasing your REACH is to recognize people for what they have done and who they are. Keep the spotlight on them in social media, nor you. Forward, comment and feature in posts content and ideas of others. This will increase your REACH.

A = ATTEND.

Attend the webinars and other events that you can. Network the events. And make new friends and keep in touch with them and let them know they had a great event and tell others about it as well.

C = COMMUNICATE.

After meeting new friends, it is critical that you communicate to them. And when you do, make it powerful and uplifting. They will draw towards you.

7 Of the Biggest Mistakes Made in MLM Network Marketing Leadership

MLM Leadership Training Tips.
Do you LEAD your MLM team or do you wish you knew HOW? 
Are you wanting some secrets to better understanding Home business Leadership?
Are you willing to maybe change some things you are doing in your network marketing business? 
Leadership starts with understanding the 3 DRIVING FORCES  that exist in home business mlm. Most distributors do not have the faintest idea of what or who is driving their business. They may believe it is just the business that is driving itself whether online or offline. In recruiting in network marketing, there always has to be something that is PUSHING your home based business, although there is still people that prefer to do traditional marketing as show displays and car graphics in London ON.
And usually that POWER that is DRIVING your business to Success is LEADERSHIP. But not JUST leadership- but the Driving Forces that align with Leadership as well for building a team.
There are many forces in network marketing that can PULL or PUSH a business including Emotions, Belief, and Doubt. But these forces are not the DRIVING forces in building a successful Network Marketing business. If you align these three Driving Forces up, you will see you home business explode.
Leadership contains the 3 Driving Forces in Direct Marketing Success.
1. Paradigm.
This is what is between your ears. This includes your THINKING, FOCUS, EMOTIONS, What you THINK will determine what you DO. This is a DRIVING FORCE in your home business mlm.
2. Process.
This is what is what you do between your hours. These are the tasks, processes, systems and ACTIONS that you take when you are working your mlm business. This includes all aspects of how you work the business including Prospecting, Recruiting, Online Recruiting, and every other aspect that requires action.
3. Leadership.
This is what is between you and your people. including customers. Leading your team is a critical element of Success in a home business, and everything rests upon Leadership. And when you add all three together you get: 
SUCCESS Power for your home business that grows and multiplies in your group.
It is a MUST that you get what is between your ears right, as well as what you do between your hours. But if you cannot get eight what is between your people, the other two will not matter. These leadership tips will help you accelerate your Success in your mlm network marketing home business.

MLM Social Media- 3 Prospecting Secrets for LinkedIn Recruiting

MLM Linkedin Recruiting and Prospecting.

Have you ever been on LinkedIn and seen the millions of professionals there for your home business?

Are you currently working LinkedIn for your network marketing business?

How does your plan work on LinkedIn- or do you have one?

There are many great social sites out there, but for the professional and business owner, LinkedIn is the hottest prospecting site for a home business professional to get the word out about you and your products.

I ran across this great post by Jill Konrath, and it was amazing. I really like her style and how she sees things in the social world of business. I would suggest that you take notes and on her blog, she does a lot of videos as well, so you will learn from her as I have. Hey! I teach this stuff and have for 7 years, and still learning from great folks like her.

Here is her post:

============================================================================================

3 Ways to Reach New Prospects on LinkedIn.

Link to Original Post.

Did you know that overall, you’re 5X more likely to get a sales call returned if you have a personal connection with someone? To me, that’s an amazing statistic. In a world where people are swamped at work and suffering from information overload, it’s the best way to capture their attention.

So what does that mean you should be doing? In essence, implementing a connection-based strategy to reach new prospects.

Here are three ways you can do that by leveraging your LinkedIn connections:

  1. The first thing you can do, is to check LinkedIn to determine if you know any of the same people. Look at their profile too. You might have gone to the same university or worked at the same company at some point in your career. When you reach out to them, make sure to mention the connection right away. This increases your odds of success by threefold.
  2. An even better approach is to have your mutual connection call your prospect to make an introduction. By doing this, you’re upping your chances of success by a factor of four.
  3. And, the best approach of all? Contacting a personal connection. You’re 11x more likely to get a return call. This means you need to strategically focus on developing relationships with people who are similar to your ideal customers. Go where they are — both on and off-line — and initiate a conversation. Make sure you keep in touch with them too. It’ll be well worth your time.

To sum it up, we’re in the Relationship Age, and who you know matters — a lot.

And that says it all folks- we ARE in a Relationship Marketing Age and we better know and learn how to market our mlm network marketing home business in this age.

The 3 Power Rules of facebook Recruiting

Your First Goal when Recruiting on Social Media

MLM Training – The Weakness in “Trying to Control Everything Leadership”

MLM Training on Leadership Control.

Do you try and control everything you do with your home business?

Ate you aware that being a control freak as a leader hurts your network marketing business?

Are you unknowingly practicing this for your work at home mlm?

Leadership is NOT control. It is about Influence and persuasion. It is about being a Catalyst and making things happen. But controlling everything going on is not leadership- it is dictatorship. And it never works to build a direct sales team.

Here is an article from SmartBriefs that will help you see from a Corporate side that you must NOT try and control everything. Yes, you want to hit the ranks that your comp plan has, and hit the top of the plan. But if you control everything in your group, you will find that it hurts you more than helps you do that.

And one of the biggest reasons NOT to try and control everything, is that your Influence will be hurt a LOT with your team and upline.

Here is the article- enjoy!

=================================================================================================

Why do you care if you do not hit the rank promotion or get the promotion you desire?

The three major impacts to you are:

  1. Financial—you don’t reach your income goals; the top sales officer is typically one of the 3 highest paid people in the company.
  2. Professional—you will be branded as the almost guy; He was almost  the SVP. He almost got the big job. He almost got promoted but timing didn’t work.
  3. Personal—do you want to relocate and change industries in your mid 40’s? Is your wife interested in pulling the kids out of school? The average regional VP of Sales has 2 kids between the ages of 9 and 15; embedded in the community. Never easy.

Why you will lose the role to your internal peer or sideline team member? Lack of Influence

This month, Forbes wrote a compelling article on the importance of great sales leaders. Influence through coaching and developing all people in the organization stood out.

If you lack it, you will fail. You might be saying: “that sounds squishy.”  It isn’t.  You have positional authority; but you do have influential authority greater than your peers?

The higher up you go, the less control you have. The number one reason why Regional guys never become worldwide guys is they lack the ability to influence multiple stakeholders. They spent their careers controlling people. I call them Captain Control. Do you commit any of these 3 sins?

  1. Control People—you constantly are working behind the scenes to ensure all people in your region say the right thing when others are in the room. You don’t like people reaching out to your direct reports without you knowing. More importantly, you are fanatical about knowing what happened. Who said what to whom and when. You are “feared” in your group and you somewhat enjoy the perception that you carry the big stick.
  2. Control Ideas—you don’t like new ideas unless they are yours. You spend time pushing back on change. You resist it. You want your team to “run the playbook” vs. challenge you and conventional wisdom. No idea is a bad idea as long as it is yours.
  3. Control Opinions—you don’t seek transparency. You seek compliance. When you ask people questions, you do it in a manner to check the box. You say you want their opinion but you really don’t. You want their agreement with yours. Malicious obedience.

What is the Alternative? Measure yourself against your key sales team leaders. You may be surprised at how they manage and inspire their teams, not control them.

MLM Social Media- The 3 Power Rules of Facebook Recruiting

MLM Social Media Training.

Do you use facebook for your home business recruiting efforts?

Are you using facebook daily when working your network marketing business?

Are you frustrated with your facebook results when working your work at home mlm?

Many people are, as facebook has become well….quite soaked with a lot of marketers. There is nothing wrong with that, but often, we get so caught up in the latest “tools” and soft-wares for facebook that we forget why we are on it to begin with. Lots of bright new shiny objects are around, but there are the facebook basic rules for recruiting that may have seem to forgotten and their recruiting results have suffered.

Have you seen a drop in your facebook success when recruiting? if so, odds are, you have moved away from the facebook basics that are a part of the foundational structure for working a home based business. That is the reason for this post.

By the way, i have not posted in 2 weeks as we have been working on our websites and moving them, updating them, and also have been on the road a lot. but I am back so lots of posts daily are now back.

What ARE the 3 basic rules of facebook recruiting? Well, they are more “understandings,”  then actual rules, but can make all the difference in your recruiting results. Social Media has grown to be a staple in the home business mlm field as far as prospecting. But there are still the basics that are to be focused on when recruiting on s social networking site. That is why I wanted to write this today, as there have been some people that have become quite discouraged using facebook for their sponsoring efforts.

Here are the 3 basic Rules for Recruiting on facebook:

1.  It is about RELATING- NOT just about Recruiting.

It is about building relationships. It is about connecting with people an d seeing how you can help them, as that is all part of the process in recruiting. When you start a conversation with someone on facebook, you are not there to see how you can recruit them.

You are there to see how you can help them, enlarge their life, and their lifestyle. Once you have done that, then recruiting them is the FRUIT of helping them in a way that adds VALUE to their life.

2.  It is about finding the RIGHT PERSON –not just A PERSON.

This is so true. Many people think that everyone they talk to is a prospect. They are NOT. many you talk to and approach simply are not for this business. That is why on facebook, I have always taught that you “Reverse the Recruiting.”

What is THAT?

Ask them who they know that would be a good leader in their area, as you and your business partners are looking for the right person to help you build a million dollar business in their state. This often will PULL that person closer to listen and see how they could be a part. Finding the RIGHT PERSON is critical when recruiting- even on facebook.

3. Help them FIND what THEY are Looking For – NOT what YOU are looking for.

People are looking for basically on thing in life: A BETTER  and more SECURE life. Show them how you and your network marketing business can help them achieve that. Ask them what they really would like to see changed in their life and then help them get it. You will recruit them just about every time.

Facebook is no different then normal face to face conversation and these are the 3 Power Rules of facebook recruiting for your mlm network marketing home based business.

MLM Training – 7 Great Ways to Lose a HOT Prospect

mlm home business prospect

mlm network marketing home business.

MLM Training on How NOT to Lose a Hot Prospect.

Do you ever Wonder where a prospect went when working your home based business?

Has a prospect ever gone “poof” and they were nowhere in sight when working your network marketing business?

How did you feel? Do you realize it more than likely was YOUR FAULT? Yes you read that right Mr. and Mrs. MLM.

It probably was your fault. And there are reasons why it more than likely it is.

There are many ways that you can turn a prospect off and I have been guilty of all of them. But over the years, we have learned that there are 7 major “no no’s” that you stay away from, and not make those mistakes.

Here are 7 Great Ways to Lose a HOT Prospect-Are YOU Guilty of These?

Many people totally mess up great prospects because they are not paying attention. Not paying attention takes many a prospect out of the game. And it is YOUR fault. Paying attention is one of the most important things you can do for your business.

Many team members think that the prospect is not sharp enough to see what is going on. But here is something that you need to know- THEY CAN SEE. They may never comment, but they are sharper then you give them credit. And often when you are not aware of that, you can lose a great prospect.

These 7 ways to mess up a HOT prospect are made daily by millions of people.

1) Lack of Authority and Presence.

Many people come across like they have no leadership or Authority.  This is unacceptable if you are going to build a great business. You MUST come across like you have the Authority to get the prospect to where they want to go in life. If you lack Authority, borrow your uplin’es until you develop yours.

2) Pressure.

All pressure is, is pressure on the inside of you, coming to the fore front and putting it on the
prospect. Pressure is the worst thing that today you can use as the prospect will smell it coming and mentally if not physically LEAVE.

3) Too Much Talking.

Let the prospect talk- and you listen. Say that 3 times. Ask questions and then listen intently. You should let the prospect talk 80% of the time- online or offline. You talk 20%. Become a professional
“Question Asker.” Ask questions and the LISTEN.

4) Hype.

People love excitement, but do NOT like hype. Kill the fake energy-that is what hype is. Did you GET THAT? It is FAKE and people hate fake.

5) Not Following Up.

Yep, this happens daily. People simply do not follow up. Hard to believe, but that is just the way it is. You need to follow up on EVERY prospect like clockwork. If you do not, then that will clean your clock in this business.

6) Talking about YOU and NOT the Prospect.

Think TINY = Their Interests NOT Yours. Talk about the prospect not you. talk about the prospect NOT YOU. Got it?  Think TINY!

7) Lack of Confidence.

This displays a lack of Leadership and Power. KNOW that you know. Study and Learn the info.
Practice-Drill-Rehearse and then do it again with your sponsor.. The practice some more to maximize your mlm network marketing home based business.

MLM Social Media- The Secret “Social Blitz Recruiting” Process

mlm recruiting home business social media

mlm recruiting social media network marketing

Are you looking for a social media recruiting path for your home business?

Are there tactics you already are doing for your mlm?

Do you use any social media recruiting processes with your network marketing business?

I have a tip that will rock your recruiting for your home business:

A SECRET WEAPON: Social Blitz Recruiting.

ACCELERATE the Pace of Social Recruiting- DRAMATICALLY.

There is also what we call “Social Blitz Recruiting.” We are coming out with a CD and Digital Training Resource very soon with a step by step training on Social Blitz Recruiting and how to create a Social Candidate Blitz.

This is a more laser focused way to create a “Mini Master Plan.” It does not get the power or numbers of the Master Candidate List that the Master Plan does, but Social Blitz Recruiting is “down and dirty” as Scott calls it, “fast and furious.”

The Master Social Recruiting Plan goes for QUANTITY and at the same time goes for QUALITY.

Social Blitz Recruiting goes for QUICKNESS. It focuses on the QUICK STRIKE, the QUICK PROCESS and the QUICK CONVERSION.

It involves running a “Social Blitz Post” on facebook, twitter, Linkedin, and other social sites simply stating you are looking for leaders in certain areas. Also you can place 30 second Social Blitz Videos as well for potential candidates to view and possibly help you with.

You can also send out a Social Blitz Text with a QR Code that sends people to a video or website. These were covered in the Social Recruiting 101 series.

Using the Social Blitz Recruiting tactics, you can recruit someone in Social Media in 24 hours.

You read that right.  24 hours.

Our Private Clients, who we coach, do it all the time.

How  does it work?

You must use what we call “Banner Posts” and these basically are posts and tweets that say something like:

“Looking for a leader in Dallas Texas. Time is of the essence. Please private FB me or direct message me on twitter @ name.  If you are leader, pleases respond.”

“If you know a Leader or great people person on Dallas Texas, please private FB me or direct message me @name. My company is looking for someone that can help us in that area and revenues are very good.”

“Our company is looking for a brand ambassador in Dallas Texas to help get our brand more out there and to help with other Leadership tasks. Please private FB me or direct message me @name on twitter or email me at @address. All inquiries will be confidential.”

These are examples of “banner Posts” that you post once or twice a day and all it is is “fishing” for people that are open to talking. Once you get a connection, then get them to a quick 5 minute Social Blitz Recruiting webinar with THEN or that evening or a video of one to tell them more of what you are looking for.

You should have 4 parts to your Blitz Presentation:

1. Introduction.

2. State the problem and personalize it. (You know someone that suffers with this don’t you?)

3. Amplify the problem with facts and figures. (With where you got them)

4. Solution. (Show them you have a solution / product and your company is looking to help people).

Invite to longer presentation or ask for referrals.

This is how you do Social Blitz Recruiting in your mlm network marketing home business.
