MLM Prospecting- How to Create the PERFECT Warm Prospect List

In your home business, there is all this talk about social media, and good reason. it is a great place to prospect and find leads.

But there is also the OTHER SIDE of the network marketing home business mlm profession.

The TRADITIONAL side that many people today in their home based business still follow, and ALWAYS WILL. Social media funnel marketing did not REPLACE traditional methods, but ENHANCED them with new strategies to empower the more traditional methods. And if you are part of the social media “funnel marketing” crowd, then congrats! You will do well with whatever system you are using. In home business is important to get in touch with the best contractors, see here now the best ones.

But there is still the NEED and DEMAND for the traditional methods, and I call it “BUSINESS BALANCED.”

If you are doing business in the “funnel” crowd, as well as the “Traditional” crowd, then you are BALANCED for the most part and woill see some great things occur in your business.

Others that do ONLY ONE– will see far more attrition and less leads then you need to build this business of network marketing.

The first thing you must realize- NO MATTER if you are brand new or a veteran, you gotta have people to talk to and show your presentation to.


And there is a traditional way of collecting a “starting list” of name that has been around since the beginning of this profession of MLM.

You must do what is called a “Memory Jogger”, which is a list of names of people that you know that you will call or contact to tell about your products or mlm business.

Most folks that do a memory Jogger find that they ofte  have some difficulty coming up with the names. The Network marketing Company you have partnered with should provide you with a list of “Mental Triggers” that will trigger your mind of people that you know and may have forgotten about.

Here is an interesting fact: It is a Psychological Fact that if you are 25 years or older, you know 1000 people.

You have just forgotten many of those folks so you need a reminder of who they are. That is the purpose for a Network Marketing Memory Jogger. To REFRESH your brain!

The list could contain names of family, occupations, associations, plus many more. You need to look at the list and come up with as many names as you can.

A list would look something like this:













Construction workers

Communication workers

Car Salesman



Electrical workers




Flooring Sales


Karate Instructors

Life Insurance Sales

Legal Assistants

Machine Shop workers

Retail Sales clerks

 You get the main  idea. It will help you think of people you have long forgotten or may not have even considered.

But you must come up with at least 50 names the first attempt.

This will give you what I call a “Working Inventory” for your MLM business.

Understand: Your REAL Inventory is NOT the products or Services your company sells. It is PEOPLE.

And you MUST have people to talk to about what you are doing. Many folks who start out have way too few names, and then complain that they have no one to talk to. Think of everyone you know WITHOUT judging their interest level, and write their name down. Use the Memory Jogger provided by your network marketing company, and do it with your upline. It will become a very important part of your beginning success in MLM.

Use the “Follow your Dollar” strategy to come up with names for your warm market list. WHO are you spending money with to live your life and purchase things for you and your family?

Who is your Insurance Agent?

Who did you buy your car from?

Who do you buy your clothes from?

Who sold you your house?

Who do you buy your airline tickets from?

Whose your doctor?

Who does your taxes?

Who is your Dentist?

Are you starting to get the point?

There are people you do business with. You need to let them know you could use their help in your new mlm network marketing enterprise.

Say, “I think you would agree that I do a lot of business with you, and I need your help with my new business.”

The power of the people that you know is beyond words. Doing a Memory Jogger is important to your getting off to a good start in Network Marketing. Make sure you do it and follow the suggestions your company recommends. I believe that for your home based business, you need a BALANCE between social media and traditional MLM. If you simply start making a list and understand they may KNOW who you are looking for, you are well on your way to massive success in your home business mlm.

Home Business Training- The Success Power of STARTING

home business start

home business success start


In a home based business, there is NO more powerful Success secret than THE START.

Many people are stopped by the Start in MLM.They let their fears and old emotions get in the way and never really START the process of Success. Oh…they may start to INTEND to do something, but yet never get around to it.

Is that YOU?

 Do you have a challenge of simply getting the key in the ignition and starting your Success Engine? You may think you are not ENOUGH, or do not HAVE ENOUGH, or maybe simply are not SMART ENOUGH.

Does NOT matter. I love this quote from one of our Presidents:

“Do what you can, with what you have, with where you are…”
Theodore Roosevelt


Just start.

Nike says it — “Just Do It!(tm)”

We say “Just Start!”

Doesn’t matter if you do not have all the education, training, tools or Success manuals for a Successful home business.

Doesn’t matter if timing isn’t perfect for a home business. Many times it will not be.

Doesn’t matter if you are not in the perfect place to do what your heart burns for, and has dream for, whether massive success, or massive lifestyle.

Start. Now.

The least known people in the world who got started years ago, now are millionaires/billionaires.

Steve Jobs.

He started Apple Computer — totally underfunded, understaffed, misunderstood.

But he got underway.

He Started.

Bill Gates.

He started. Well, you know, that Seattle company. He started in a dorm room, with no money, and only one gear:

Success OverDrive. And his drive is what got him over the tough spots.

He Started.

Michael Jordan.He started. And was stopped several times, but he kept starting over, and over. And well, you know. He did pretty good.

Boy did He Start!

And the list is endless.

All great Successes have one thing in common:

A Starting point. An Ignition. A Spark. A first step.

What are you not starting? And why aren’t you? Isn’t it TIME you STARTED heading towards a massive home business and quit playing around with it?

What is holding you back?

Fear? Doubt? Lack of Self Esteem? Lack of Knowledge? Bad Parents? Bad Childhood? Bad hair Day?

No Money? No Time? No Credit? No help? No education? No Way?

All the “Pat” excuses that everyone accepts as a “reasonable” factor not to do anything?


The average say, “Come on! Let’s be REASONABLE and not live in a fantasy world! Success is for others! Not in our family!”

There is no “Reasonable” with Creating Massive Success. Successful people are some of the most unreasonable people on earth. They refuse to listen to other’s reason for mediocrity and giving up.

Only the “Unreasonable” create new destinies for their life, and for thousands of others, and change becomes their mantra.

Reasonable is staying put. Unreasonable is Starting Power.

There are No excuses for not starting.

You wanna know what Start stands for?

“Success Taking Action (that) Removes Timidity.”

That’s why you need to Start.

The timid will never RULE in the marketplace.

What’s the VERY FIRST THING you need to do to create your Success Dream and Passion in your Life with your network marketing company?

Write it down.

Break it down into the 3-4 tasks required to complete it.

See it on the Movie Screen in your Mind as Successful.

Review it and Rehearse it on your “Screen”, over and over.

Get 2 pieces of paper.

On one, write all the reasons you cannot do this and succeed.

On the the other piece, write all the reasons you MUST do this and succeed.

NOW– Tear one of them up.

And if you chose the reasons you MUST Succeed:

Start. Just Start.

There’s where the Success Magnet is:

Being Totally, Radically, Absolutely Unreasonable in your Achievement and Success pursuit in your home business. Your STARTING will make such a powerful difference in your mind set and attitude it will blow you away.

GET SERIOUS and just START and watch your Success explode in your mlm home business!

Never fear Prospecting Again! Here is how to EXPLODE your Leads that want to talk to you!
