How To Generate More Leads For Your MLM

ecommerce-lead-generation-8

If you are new to network marketing or mlm, you may have been asked to create a list of everyone you know, so you can share the products and business opportunity with them. Most people actually don’t write down every name of the people they know. They will write down 5-10 names of the “easy” ones typically. These are the people that they believe need it the most or won’t laugh at them because they are building a business like this.

Unfortunately, this generally does not lead to anyone joining who will actually build the business. Yes, sometimes you brother in law will join and build, but generally the people on your friends and family list that join do so, to support you or they don’t want to tell you no. Once you have been told by people that you thought would see what you do, now what?

Warm and Cold Market Leads

Now you will be told to start talking to your warm market. These are people who are your acquaintances. People on your Facebook friends list. You don’t really talk to them in person so how do you approach them about a business opportunity? As always, I say talk to your upline for advice first. They are the ones who are there to help you directly and want you to be successful.

Using social media can be an effective way to promote your products and opportunity, you just have to do it in a non spammy way. That upsets people and they will unfollow you. Depending on your product you may also get blocked by FB & Instagram. For instance, CBD and whole plant hemp products. They are legal but FB won’t let you use paid advertising to promote them. You can still post on your FB fan page though for free.

You need to find a balance between your curated information, you own information and funny or inspiration posts to capture your audience and then be consistent with your posts so your fans look forward to your posts. You are looking to build trust so that when they are ready to take a look at your products or business opportunity, they will check out yours.

How do you generate cold market leads?

For most of us this is the make or break point in the business. If you have not built the team you will need to grow your team from the above group then you have two choices. Work with people you don’t know or quit. To many people unfortunately choose to quit. This is one of the reasons why so many people quit mlm.

In reality it is the fear of talking to strangers that kills it for them. I understand it I felt the same way when I got started. I am an introvert so it is difficult for me to get comfortable talking with people I don’t know. Years ago, there were no choices about how to do it. You had to walk up to a person and talk or call them on the phone. You remember that thing called a “land line”. For most of us it was more of a land mine. We were so afraid to use it because we thought it will blow up or something.

What now?

Now with today’s technology we can use many different ways to reach people who may be interested in what you are doing. Today I am only sharing my business opportunity with people who are already looking and who want to see what I am doing. That alone removes any fear you may have. I teach my team several different methods on how to generate leads for their business from the largest group of people on earth. The ones you don’t know…yet. Today I can share my opportunity with hundreds of people each day. Sure, not everyone will decide to join my team, but that is the same with anything. It is all a numbers game and you need to share what you have to as many people as possible every day.

My system is one step better because it allows them to pre-enroll on my team while they learn more about the products, compensation plan, etc. while I build a team under them to show them that it works. In effect they get to be on the team without actually joining right away. It is like a test drive in a way. I use an email response system that sends the lead a series of emails regularly to help educate and motivate them to learn more and join. Since I have built a team under them that is generating volume, they have something to lose if they don’t join. Hopefully the company you work with has the same thing. If not, you may want to build your own system or join my team and use my system.

I use as many methods as possible to generate leads and I shoot for 20-30 leads per day minimum on average. This will translate into several people joining the team and many of those will end up being business leaders and they will build good size, lucrative businesses that can generate an ongoing residual income.

You have to face the reality that it will take hundreds or thousands of people to join your business team. It takes some time to do that and remember it won’t just be you doing that work. In the beginning it will just be you and me. As you and I build the team, there will be more people like you who duplicate the methods and pretty soon you will have dozens of leaders sharing the products and opportunity to additional 1000’s. The growth starts to accelerate and reaches critical mass.

Give yourself time to be successful

In today’s Amazon.com world we want everything to be instant. We don’t like to wait for anything, even success. Unfortunately, you can’t rush that. You can go faster or slower but you cannot rush it or skip steps. It’s like losing weight. It takes just as long to lose it as it does to gain it. For me it seems it takes much longer to lose than to gain. Success is like that too. You have to build todays for results tomorrow. It will not be instant and everyone starts at a different place, with their skills, knowledge, finances and work ethic.

Earn while you learn

One of the best things about having your own MLM business is that you can learn as you go. You don’t have to know everything before you get started. In fact, you only need to know the basics to get started which take less than one day to learn. I work with all levels of people. Many have never heard of or seen a mlm type business. Some are like me, and have been involved in network marketing in the past.

 

The bottom line is you can learn to generate leads for your business from the cold market more easily and with more time efficiency than ever before. Since they come to you it is easy to share what you are doing and help them to join your team. I am happy to help you do it, just let me know.

Why Skeptics Make The Best Business Leaders

If you have been in a network marketing company for any time at all, you will run into some pretty hardcore skeptics. They are the people who try to tell you, that what you are doing can’t work. Sometimes they can break you down to a point where you start believing them. This is especially true if the person is a trusted friend or family member.

Most people are not really trying to make you feel bad. They are really just not fully informed and they probably don’t understand how your business opportunity actually works.

My advice is to pull back a bit when confronting their objections. Most skeptics are expecting you to defend your business and if you are very passionate about it you may even feel the need to attack them. I mean verbally of course. Instead of answering their objections, I ask them questions. If they say that is a pyramid scheme! I don’t try to convince them it’s not. At least not directly. I ask them to tell me why you think it’s a pyramid? Or What is a pyramid?

They will tell you the guy at the top makes all the money and the guy at the bottom doesn’t make any money etc, etc. At this point I agree with them and say “good I was worried for a moment. In our company we are a legal business and we know pyramid schemes are illegal. In our company the next person who starts can be the biggest earner in the company.

They will continue to give you more and more objections. What they are really doing is learning all the details about your business. Eventually they will run out of excuses and either decide to get involved or not. Either way you explained your business calmly and professionally. Most skeptics don’t expect you to use this approach and it really disarms them, so they can actually listen and learn.

In my personal situation I am definitely a big skeptic. I also did this to my first sponsor when I joined Amway back in 1989. A high school friend put up with my abuse for about 2 hours and then really disarmed me by saying, “fine, then don’t do the business!”.

This was the first time he actual bit back at me and it really ticked me off that I just spent the last 2 hours telling him all the ways it would not work. The moment he took the opportunity from me I started to feel something different. I was like, hey don’t tell me I can’t do it. I’ll get in to show you how it can’t work. I know…How dumb was that?

I joined him and we ended up building a good size business and we became leaders eventually. I still needed a lot of changing and learning. Believe me!

The point is that most of the best leaders are very skeptical of things. This can force them to check it out a bit deeper than most. If you’re involved with a good company that has a good compensation plan and products. They will investigate it completely. That is what you really want. Once they investigate and understand the details the only thing left is to enroll them and get them started.

Yes they ask tons of questions. Yes it can get irritating. In the end you may just enroll your first or next leader. Who knows exactly? It sure will make a great story one day, That’s for sure!

How to Build A Network Marketing Business If You Are Afraid To Talk To People

When I first learned that you can build a business of your own with the network marketing concept I figured I would only need to share this with my few friends and family and everything would expand from there. Guess what? It didn’t. Yes a few family members joined and it was really good to work together. But now what do I do? I was told, now to go and talk to people who are acquaintances and then start cold contacting. WHAT? Are You Serious?

Fear of Talking To People

Here is where one of my biggest fears happened. I needed to talk to people I barely know or don’t know at all about my business opportunity. Yikes! I, like many people fear talking to people, talking to groups of people or talking to people you don’t know, talking to people one on one. I don’t like talking in front of people or even near other people. And even just plain talking is an issue.

I was an introvert and pretty shy and self conscience growing up. I was a tall, skinny kid with no desire to interact with others.  I was a  “gork”. I was gangly armed and legged  person and a dork, so there you go. I stayed inside and read books and made models of cars, planes and boats.

I am sure you either are like that or know someone who is like that. This unfortunately makes a bad combination for building a business that is all about people talking to others. Sharing products and business opportunities.

I have heard it said that the fear of public speaking is more feared than death itself. I think I can agree with that. At least for the first 1000 or so times, I tried to talk to someone about my business opportunity. Heck I had trouble talking to my family and I knew them.

So, Don’t Talk To People, And Build It Anyway

For many people they will simply quit building their business because the fear of talking to people is too great. They won’t share the stories about the product and will not prospect for people to join their business. I know, because that’s what I did for a while. I did not actually quit the business; but I stopped doing the things that are actual revenue producing activities. Things like showing the plan to people and promoting, and prospecting and following up. I remember finally showing my own plans 1 on 1. I was so relived that I had done it I didn’t even followup. Frankly I did not care to. What if they got involved? Then I might have to show the business plan to people they knew but I didn’t. What a spiral.

Back in the late 80’s early 90’s we did not have the internet or cell phones. Social media had not been created yet. Today we can use those tools to build our businesses and it allows us to build a bridge in our business maturity. This means we can still build our network marketing businesses using means other than talking using our voices. We can use texting, emails, blogs, social media posts etc. We can even make videos. For some reason people can do that and not feel that they are talking to thousands of people. This will allow you to bridge the gap from being totally fearful of talking to people and the time-frame when you finally become more comfortable. You can continue on while you work on conquering the fear.

It’s Like Online Dating

Today many people meet online and develop a relationship that carries over into the real world. If we can find our true soul mate or our partner using the online tools and methods, then why can’t you find interested people for your products or business opportunity? The answer is you can. It’s a really great way to build your business. Only interested people reach out to you and so there is virtually no rejection. You don’t have to feel bad because someone said no, to getting involved in your business because you can now have 100’s of leads everyday that are coming to you.

Don’t Quit! Just Work!

That is right! Stay in and build your business using whatever means possible. As long as it is legal and ethical of course. If you feel able to create the best posts for social media. Then do that full time. Eventually add on additional methods and tools. Eventually you will get more and more confident in what you are doing and you will start talking and sharing with people you know in person. I know people who have developed a six figure income and don’t ever meet their network marketing people in person or even speak on the phone.

Over a period of time you will become better at every aspect of growing your business. Today the many methods we have available to us, allow you to build in multiple ways until we can use all of the methods effectively. I teach my team how to do this every day. If I can learn it so can you.

How To Recruit For Your MLM Business 24 Hours A Day

When I first started in network marketing it was 1989. The Internet and cell phones were not used by many people yet. Those that even had a home computer would be rare as they were very expensive. What was there to do on them anyways? Play games with CGA graphics and keep track of your expenses on Lotus?

Cell phones were big and bulky. We called them “brick” phones. Because they were heavy and about the size of a brick. You had to be fairly wealthy to have one.

I had joined Amway and started to learn about how to build the business from my upline and learned as much as possible from books, tapes and seminars. The only way to build the business was person to person. If you wanted to share the business opportunity you had to call someone on the phone (landline) or go and talk to them in person. Or invite them to a meeting.  All of these methods were initially pretty scary to a lot of people, me included.

 

Eventually we did get the Amway business into a version of what was called “E-Commerce” via Quixtar. This was a better, more computer driven business model. The only thing that really changed though was how you ordered products. Instead of the paper order forms we started with, we entered the orders into the web page via the internet. Man was it slow and glitchy!  We were using dial up internet. If your under 25 years old, you probably don’t know what that is, but the speed was measure in kilobytes (KB) per second. And when it was the best we had 56KB connection speeds. WOW! of course today we have 100MG speeds routinely available over WiFi.

We did not use the internet to generate leads and prospects 24 hours a day because no one was really on the internet yet. Can you imagine a world like that?

Generate Your Leads 24 Hours A Day-7 Days A Week

Today with most people in the world using a smartphone and having access to the internet using one device or another, we can now reach anyone in just about every country. Using social media, blogs, websites, videos and emails we can build our businesses day and night. Asleep or awake. At work or on vacation. There is always someone looking for a better way to make a living or to fulfill their dream by staring and building their own business. Now you can help them find you.

The best thing about using these methods is that the “content” that we create, can be used for years after it’s initially created. It can keep working for you forever basically.

Can you image creating a video on YouTube today, that will be seen 3 or 4 years from now that gives someone a better understanding of what your business opportunity is? They get excited and join your team. Become a successful business builder all because you were able to educate them and help them understand what you are doing. As we create this content today we don’t know how many lives we can touch, but it sure is a lot more effective at reaching out to people from all walks of life than just talking to people you meet during your normal day, right?

Highly Duplicate-able

One of the things you need to grow a big network marketing business is to have anyone on the team be able to do what you did, or are doing. Building using these methods are certainly more suitable for the younger generation that grew up with this technology. My own kids will tell you they don’t use a cellphone to talk to their friends. They just text them. People like myself will have to relearn some things, but it can be done, and I have done it.  The good news is that you can still build using the old ways and learn to adapt to the new ways while you’re building. Earn while you learn.

You can bet that these methods will continue to evolve so you may need to plan on continuing to learn and grow as the market and technology changes. Just stay flexible and take it one step at a time. You can do it.
