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.

mlm network marketing live

The 5 Steps to MLM Magnetic Networking.

Have you ever networked live in a meeting or an event for your home business?

What did you say about your direct sales business?

What questions do you ask the prospect when networking for your network marketing business?

There are 5 steps that we have found that works amazing in a live event. Below are some opening questions and then a breakdown of the Magnetic Networking process.

The Networking Approach:

 1) “I am a professional in the community like you and I am introducing myself to..”

2) “I love networking with other professionals like yourself over a cup of coffee or tea.“

4) “I run across people all the time with certain needs in their life.”

5) “Maybe there is a way we could help each other.“

6) “Would you be open to some coffee sometime as I would love to get some of your cards – we may be some business synergy.”

Lets take a look at the  5 steps:

1)   “I am a professional in the Community.”

 This states an important fact:

You are one of them.

And this will create the start of a CONNECTION right off the bat, and also establish who you are to the Cold prospect, from one professional to another. Network Marketing is a profession, and you need to start treating it like one.

2)   “I am introducing myself.”

 This sets up an important paradigm. You are taking the initiative to introduce and meet people in the community, and you are a take charge type of person. And it shows you really want to meet folks, as well it shows Leadership.


3)   “I love networking with other professionals.”

 This states one thing: You value other professionals as a resource. And you also show that you appreciate the fact that networking does work in the business world And also that as a resource, a professional has value to you and your Network Marketing business, and vice versa.


4)   “Maybe there is a way we could help each other.”

 This establishes that you are willing to Increase and Improve your prospects business and life. And also you do care about helping people, plus you are showing Potential value right upfront.


5)   “Would you be open for coffee sometime?”

 This is the proactive part of it, and it simply gives them a chance to engage the budding relationship, or not. Most professionals do have an interest in increasing their business, so you will get some interest, and some time with many of them.

 But if they say they are not interested?

Be a professional, and thank them for their time and wish them well. And see if you can get a card for a thank you note to send them.

 “May I at least have a card in case I run across someone who would want your services?”

These are the 5 Steps to Magnetic Networking for our mlm network marketing home business.

Social Media MLM Twitter.

Do YOU use twitter for your home business?

Do you KNOW how to use it Powerfully and make it work for you and your network marketing business?
How do YOU use in in your mlm efforts?
Twitter seems to attract just about every kind of person, and from every walk of life.
Some people GET twitter and others do not. I love twitter, and think the site can really create some great exposure for you.
Many folks use twitter in many ways. Some use it occasionally and other use it all day. And it both works, and works well.
Twitter is a “micro blogging” site, and like others, you can send a message to your followers in 140 characters. That forces you to SHRINK your message to a bite size piece of communication
There are 6 ways to help build business with twitter:
1) Drive people to your blog.
2) Drive people to your website.
3) Drive people to your Podcast.
4) Brand yourself repeatedly.
5) Drive people to your internet webinar/ Conference call / internet TV cast.
6) Drive people to your “meet up.” 
After you have been on twitter for a while, you will make connections and then friends that can help introduce people to you that can use your products or business.
Develop “Doorways.”
These are people on twitter that can lead to someone else or something else. That alone can MULTIPLY your exposure and success in your mlm business.
Doorways lead to other doorways. And doorways always can OPEN new possibilities that can lead to new mlm business.
Twitter can open thousands of doors if done right. With over 200 million people on twitter, you can connect with a TON of prospects for your home based business.
Lets cover these briefly:
1) Drive people to your blog.
You can ask a question or state something that can compel people to click on your url to your blog tweet.
2) Drive people to your website.
You can ask someone to please give you their opinion on it as far as attraction or functionality.
3) Drive people to your Podcast.
You can give a FREE download to a podcast and get a lot of traffic.
4) Brand yourself repeatedly.
Use the same slogan, names, or themes in all you do. This will brand you well on twitter.
5) Drive people to your internet webinar/ Conference call / internet TV cast.
“Now broadcasting LIVE-join in the fun!” This can promote what you are doing NOW and drive traffic to your event.
6) Drive people to your “meet up.”
Tweet or Direct Message about local meet ups. Tweet even DURING the tweet up and then after wards as well to tell of the fun and who you met.
These are 6 ways to create a Powerful Twitter Success in your network marketing home based business.

MLM Recruiting – 5 Powerful Recruiting Interview Questions to Ask

mlm recruiting home business interview

mlm recruiting interview network marketing


MLM Recruiting Interview.

Do you interview people when you are recruiting and sponsoring for your mlm home business?

You can do it online or offline, does not matter.

Do you do phone conversations or skype interviews when you are looking for a newmlm  team member?

There are many ways to recruit and sponsor, online and offline, but one of the greatest ways to start the process is to QUALIFY the prospect to see if YOU can work with them and THEY are who you are looking for.

Psychologically speaking, many prospects want to “ADD UP” or “Measure Up” for the task, and when they are looking for employment, an interview is a staple in the search process.

Should it not be for recruiting someone in your network marketing business?

Below are 5 questions you should be asking prospects and seeing what their answers are. They are powerful and they work!

 1. Lets start here…Tell me about yourself.

Since this question or statement is often the opening question in any interview, be extra careful that you don’t do all the talking as it really is easy to do when recruiting in mlm. You want the prospect to know who you are and what you are doing. There is time for that, but not at the beginning.

Keep CONTROL by asking questions and listening. If they ask a question…

 Keep your answer to a minute at most. Ask the prospect if they do not tell you, about their parents, their education, where they have worked the last 10 years, , recent career experience., and if they ever have or thought about owning their own business. Emphasize this last subject. Remember that this is likely to be a warm-up question. Don’t waste your best points on it.

And TAKE NOTES. “You don’t mind if I write down a few notes do you?”  Whether face to face, skype, a Google Hangout, online chat, or cell phone, TAKE NOTES and always let them know you are. It displays a professional image and a powerful Leadership brand.

2. What do you look for in a great organization? What other companies have you looked at?

Listen to what they say. Take notes. Let their answers show that you are listening, have  some research, but don’t overwhelm the prospect with too many follow up questions. Make it clear that you wish to learn more.

You might start by saying, “This is interesting. Thank you for sharing that. What one thing do you feel a good organization should have for their folks?”

“Your answers are some of the few I have gotten that truly interest me- as you have a lot of potential with your communications skills.”

Give any statement a positive tone. Don’t say, “Well, you don’t have very good communication skills…”  if they are not who you are looking for, use this interview for practice and switch the conversation to the product, or who they might know that they could work with.

3. Why would a home business interest you? Just curious…

Here, and throughout the course of the mlm interview, a good answer comes from your prospect having done their homework and knows something about our profession.

You might give your own testimonial, and say that your impressed with your prospects research (if they have done any)  and that your company is doing things you personally wanted to be involved with, and that your company is doing them in ways that greatly interest you.

For example, if your upline organization is known for strong results, your answer should mention that fact and show that you wanted  to be a part of that kind of a team. Ask the prospect  would that be important to them.

 If the company places a great deal of emphasis on leadership and business development, emphasize the fact that you want to create new things and that you know this is an environment in which such activity is encouraged. Ask the prospect if they feel that would be important to them.

If your prospect feels that they are not really connected to this question, or looks bored, avoids eye contact, body language closes up, or online they go quiet… – you probably should not be seriously considering that interview for a leader, because they probably shouldn’t be considering a home business.

Their “success language” is lacking for your business and you working with them.

4. What is your strongest asset that you can bring to any team?

Here the prospect may blow their own horn and even get a bit egotistical. Happens a lot in a recruiting interview.  Talk about you are looking for someone who gets things done and can lead a team, and ask specifics why they think their answer to your question is their strongest asset. 

Motivate and encourage the prospect. Say that the prospect’s skills and interests, combined with their apparent history of getting results, makes them a valuable commodity for any team. Ask about what their priorities are in any kind of marketing posiiton, and would they say they are good at solving challenges.

5. What do you find most attractive about being your own? What seems least attractive about it?

Find out their REASON why they are looking and why they feel they wold be a good fit.

After you have asked these questions, you need to transition to this…

“I love your energy and you have great people skills. What I think we need to do now is take a minute to watch/listen/attend – (whatever your next move is) how does that sound for you?”

The MLM Recruiting interview for a home business is something that can be done a multitude of ways. These are 5 powerful questions you can ask and start directing them to a more intensive look at your mlm home business.

MLM Holiday Recruiting- 10 Powerful Questions to Ask Your Prospect

Seasonal MLM Conversations.

Are you aware that the holidays are incredibly powerful for building your network marketing business?

Yes, you must be gentle and NON pressure. And of course, if they do not want to to talk to you about your network marketing business, change the subject.

But what if a prospect DOES show an interest?

It is called MLM Holiday Recruiting and it is a powerful focus for this time of year.

Seasonal Holiday Sponsoring.

That is a very powerful concept in MLM….are you aware of it?

MLM Seasonal Recruiting. HOT CONCEPT!

It is when a particular season in the year can bring an awareness of something that timing may be bad for in other parts of the year.

Like right now.

Right now, one thing is especially on people’s minds:


It is the new year, and for the next 4 weeks or so, many people will be looking to make changes and to not repeat last year, this year! And it is a wonderful recruiting time, and you hold what we call a ‘Seasonal Conversation’ with folks.

The Secret to A Network Marketing Business in 2012.

We all know that the secret to this Network Marketing business is EFFECTIVE CONVERSATION.

We have been teaching that for 25 years and we teach it online as well as offline, as well as effective Communication. We are in the business of Communicating with people, and you can hold a ‘Conversation of Change’ with people right now that will go hand in glove with their thinking.

It is a fact that the first of the year that Gyms get a flood of memberships that last for maybe 60-90 days, and rarely seen again. That is human nature. But you can help people keep that change in their life, whether they want more money, freedom, time, security, control, or whatever.


By asking some simple questions and making some statements during a conversation.

The MLM Business Building Concept.

MLM Holiday Recruiting Secret:

Turn a Conversation into an MLM Business Building Tool.

When you are chatting with someone, here are some ‘MLM Magnetic Questions  you can ask:

1)’What about last year are you not going to repeat this year?’

2)’In one word, how would you describe last year?’

3)’What kind of New years resolution do you have for 2012?’

4)’What would be the one thing you would want to change this year in your life?’

5)’What kind of raise do you think you will get in 2012? Why so little?’

6)’I am not going to let this year be like last year. Thank God it’s over. How about you?’

7)’You looking to change anything this year about your life? Why?’

8)’How would it impact you and your family to have the best year financially this year than you have had in a long while with a home based business?’

9) ‘What are your plans for 2012? Any changes? What about financially?’

10) ‘What kind of year do you want to have in 2012? What is going to be different?’

Success Possibilities in Direct Sales and MLM.

This will lead you into a ‘Conversation of Success Possibilities’ with you and your potential prospect, and push a Hot Button that may be cooler the end of February.

After the question or statement:

‘You know, I have run across something that is going to help me create the change in my life this year I have always looked for, and it possibly could help you. When can we chat? I may need your help as a friend.’

If you are going to be talking to folks anyway, why not do some ‘Seasonal Recruiting?’

This is the season for CHANGE.

I suggest you might change what you are doing and talk to people about what is on their mind, and what they want to:


One of the best ways to change your life in 2012 is MLM and Network Marketing Home Business.
