MLM Recruiting Body Language Tips.

How do you respond to body language  in your recruiting for your home based business?

What are the signals that you look for with a person’s face in your network marketing efforts?

Can you read body language in your mlm recruiting efforts?

Body language can reveal much about a person and their interest or LACK of interest in your work at home business. Often we miss the subtle clues that can display where they are in the recruiting process. Even online, there are certain communication clues that can reveal much of noticed.

Body language can accelerate recruiting in network marketing dramatically if read correctly. Below is some of the secrets of using body language in mlm recruiting.

When you are recruiting LIVE and in person, there are many parts of your body that add to the nonverbal message. This type of nonverbal communication is called kinesic code.

It is made up of emblems, illustrators, regulators, affect displays and adapters. 

These behaviors are each communicated in different behaviors and movements of your body.

The first important aspect of kinesics is posture. Standing or sitting in a relaxed professional manner is a positive posture nonverbal.

Also, being comfortably upright, squarely facing an audience, and evenly distributing your weight are all aspects of posture that communicate professionalism, confidence, attention to detail and organization. Nonverbals communicated by moving the trunk of your body are called body gestures.

Several different body gesture strategies are to move to change mood or pace, draw
attention, or reinforce and idea. Some examples are stepping aside for a transition or stepping forward to emphasize a point. Hand gestures are what are most often identified as nonverbal communication.

One reason is because they are so obvious to a receiver and seen to be partly conscious. It is important to let your gestures flow naturally as if in conversation with a close friend.
You may also use gestures to specifically describe shape and size, emphasize a point, enumerate a list, or picking out a specific item. In conjunction with hand gestures is touching.

This is a very powerful communicator especially for establishing a link to a receiver or conveying emotion. However, touching is dangerous because it invades a persons intimate space and may be perceived as unwanted or breaking norms. It is important to pay attention to the other person’s nonverbal cues before deciding to initiate a touch. 

The last area of physical nonverbal communication is facial expression. Facial expression is partly innate and also partly learned. Because of the number of muscles and features, such as mouth, nose, lips, cheeks, in your face, it is extremely expressive. A face can ask questions, show doubt, surprise, sadness, happiness and a wealth of other messages.

Here are some other body language clues for your mlm recruiting:

1. The Head

Rapidly nodding your head can leave the impression that you are impatient and eager to add something to the conversation — if only the prospect would let you. Slower nodding, on the
other hand, emphasizes interest, shows that you are validating the comments of your prospect, and subtly encourages him to continue.

Tilting the head slightly, when combined with eye contact and a natural smile, demonstrates friendliness and approachability. The tilt should be momentary and not exaggerated, almost like a bob of the head to one side. (Do not overuse this technique!)

2. The Mouth

One guiding principle of good body language is to turn upward rather than downward. Look at two boxers after a fight: the loser is slumped forward, brows knit and eyes downcast, while the
winner’s smiling face is thrust upward and outward. The victor’s arms are raised high, his back is straight, his shoulders are square. In the first instance the signals we receive are those of anger, frustration, belligerence, and defeat; in the second, happiness, openness, warmth, and confidence.

Your smile is one of the most powerful positive body signals in your arsenal; it best exemplifies the up-is-best principle, as well. Offer an unforced, confident smile as frequently
as opportunity and circumstances dictate. Avoid at all costs the technique that some applicants use: grinning idiotically for the length of the recruiting session, no matter what. This will only communicate that you are either insincere or not quite on the right track.

It’s worth that the mouth provides a seemingly limitless supply of opportunities to convey weakness. This may be done by touching the mouth frequently (and, typically, unconsciously);
“faking” a cough when confused with a difficult question; and/or gnawing on
one’s lips absentmindedly. Employing any of these “insincerity signs” when you
are asked questions when recruiting, will confirm or instill suspicions about your honesty and effectiveness.

3. The Hands

A confident and positive handshake breaks the ice and gets the interview moving in the right direction. Proper use of the hands throughout the rest of the recruiting session will help to convey an above-board, “nothing-to-hide” message.

Watch out for hands and fingers that take on a life of their own, fidgeting with themselves or other objects such as pens, paper, or your hair. Pen tapping is interpreted a s the
action of an impatient person; this is an example of an otherwise trivial habit
that can take on immense significance in an interview situation. (Rarely will
an prospect ask you to stop doing something annoying; instead, he’ll simply make a mental note that you are an annoying person, and congratulate himself for picking this up before making the mistake of enrolling with you.)

The Feet

Some foot signals can have negative connotations. Women and men wearing slip-on shoes should beware of dangling the loose shoe from the toes; this can be quite distracting and, as it
is a gesture often used to signal physical attraction, it has no place in a home business recruiting session. Likewise, avoid compulsive jabbing of the floor, desk, or chair with your foot; this can be perceived as a hostile and angry motion, and is likely to annoy the interviewer.

These are success body language signals that are powerful revealers that tell what the prospect ia really thinking and where you need to go with the recruiting session- or NOT GO.

These Body Language Signals will help you in your mlm network marketing home based business recruiting.

MLM Holidays Recruiting.

Are you looking forward to the holidays for your home business?

Is your calendar full of appointments for your network marketing business?

Do you have a PLAN for the holidays and how you are going to work them for your work at home business mlm?

Many people say that the holidays is “Throttle Back” time and take it easy as NO ONE really will want to talk to you.


I have had over a dozen coaching clients recruit someone on Christmas eve, and 2 on Christmas DAY.  Yes  you read that right. How did they do that?


And they understood the Top 10 reasons why your business will explode during the holidays.


You can either embrace these, or not-up to you. But I can tell you that the most powerful thing that you can do is just take ONE of them and DRIVE IT INTO YOUR BUSINESS over the holidays.

NOTE to Self:  Business DOES NOT slow down during the holidays- DISTRIBUTORS DO-and  Leaders Do NOT.


That is a Golden law of the Holidays Business Building and if you are ready to ACCELERATE your home business during the holidays and Christmas- ROCKING!

What ARE the Top 10 reasons?


The most powerful part of the holidays is the Emotion that is brought forth at ONLY this time of year. It does nor occur any other time like the holidays. And your goal is to tap into that emotion and get them talking about what they love about this season and why. Find out what they love- and then find out what they would love to change during this time to make their life better. I can only tell you that Emotions make someone much more willing to talk about change as they are in a “safe place” in their mind and you are connected to that space. Find out what they want to change NOW- and help them.


People gather more during the holiday season more than any other time of the year. That equals CONVERSATIONS. But do not “attack” the family-online or offline. Do NOT bring your business up. let them ask about it as you use your products in front of them. Talk to them about 2013. Find out their new years resolution. Ask people what 2013 looks like to them. FIND THE PAIN. Then  talk to them after Christmas about it. “Were you serious when you said you really wanted to change….”


What part of this don’t we all understand? The economy is one of the greatest Conversation Openers that exists today. Ask them about what they see happening. Ask them about their Personal Economy. Is it working for them or do they want more from it? Ask or write them how would you describe today’s economy? How is it impacting you?”

Ask them what they would like to change about their lifestyle- and LISTEN. They are telling you how to recruit them. If on facebook-same thing. LinkedIn-same thing. Mobile – same thing.


During this time of the year, most are “Forward Focused” and “Fired Up for CHANGE.” Stoke their fire. Ask them what they are planning on changing in 2103. Why?

That is a recruiting bulls eye. Whether on skype or face to face- show them how their Forward Focus can transform into a Force of Fortune. “If you describe your 2012 in ONE word- what would it be?” LISTEN. There is your opening and recruiting magnet.


Today with the mobile devices, social media, and even pinterest and instagram, you can create a connection unlike anything that has existed before. And because of that, you can truly leverage technology beyond your imagination. Send a youtube greeting to friends over the holiday- via mobile media. SMS folks and let them know you are thinking of them and miss them. Get on social media and every one that has put up holiday pictures or videos- COMMENT. Get to know them. And get Connected to them if you are not.

Technology = The Accelerator. Period.


That what happens when the holidays arrive. People, by habit, start seeking some kind of change for the better. And they seek-and they seek- and they seek. Many people today in social media and in conversation, will let you know they are not happy where they are in life.

Great. Get them HAPPY. Show them how a little change of tactics with their time can bring a flood of profits into their world. “So what is your PLAN for changing? Would you like one that WORKS?”



Most people have time off for the holidays. Here is a MILLION Dollar question: What better time is there to bring up working from  home, when they ARE at home, and really want to STAY at home and not go back to work away for  their kids?

“You looking forward to going back to work? No? Why Not? Have you ever thought of being proactive about staying at home and making more money then you are now?”



People during the Holiday Season seem to be in a more talkative mood then most any other time of the year. Ok….TALK to them ABOUT THEM. Talk about 2013 and what they MUST change. Talk to them about paying off their credit cards early. Talk to them about the holidays and people they KNOW. Talk to them about what the Holidays bring to their life – and what they WISH they would bring to their life.

TALK- about THEM. Period. End of discussion.


In any gathering, ask this one question: “I could really use your help on something. Won’t take much. But now is not a good time. After the first, can we hold a private conversation for a couple of minutes?”

This is a KILLER question for online and social media as well.

10. FAR.   Frustration. Anger. Resentment.

I have never seen folks so frustrated about life, in my life time here on earth. And because of it, they are Angry about it, and often carry Resentment of their job, paycheck, boss, and other things into conversations. Listen to their language and emotions. They are actually OPEN to some help simply by talking openly about their struggles from income to outgo.

OK…help them. “What is your PLAN to get through this?” “Are you going to remain frustrated or would  you like to get out of that?” “Let me share with you an idea that has changed my life and could easily yours…”

Social Up and Mobile UP and let people know you are a Solution Specialist and can help them in a multitude of ways.

These are 10 reasons why your business is going to explode in your mlm network marketing home business.
