Network Marketing Tips: Facts Tell, Stories Sell

untitledBuilding a network marketing business?

Do you have team members who don’t seem to listen to the advice you give them?

Do you get frustrated and end up preaching to and commanding your distributors who don’t follow your advice?

Facts Tell, Stories Sell

I have a 3 sentence story to share with you that is way far more effective than preaching and commanding your distributors to follow your advice. After all, facts tell, stories sell, right?

Everyone likes a story and this 3 sentence story will prevent you from getting frustrated and impress upon your team that duplication is key in building the business.

Video: This three sentence story will illustrate to your team that duplication is key:

So, don’t get frustrated with your distributors. Don’t preach to them or command they follow your advice. Simply tell them this 3 sentence story:
 “Imagine you wanted to walk through a minefield. Would you want to go first? Or, would you rather have a leader who knows the way, to go first, and you simply follow carefully in his footsteps?”
 
See how simple that is. It’s polite and non-confrontational!

MLM Recruiting Secrets: Zero Level Marketing

intmar

Are you guilty of being inconsistent when building your home business? Stay tuned because I am going to share with you a powerful concept I learned in a video by Diane Hochman called Zero Level Marketing. If you do not know who Diane Hochman is, she is a stay at home mum, a network marketing legend and a L6 Leader in MLSP (MyLeadSystemPro). You can learn more about Diane at DianeHochman.com

The concept of Zero Level Marketing really struck a chord with me because inconsistency is my biggest enemy. It was as if Diane was talking to ME specifically.

Peaks and Troughs

sine waveYou see, if you are like me, your marketing activities probably look like mine and resemble a sine wave where you have periods of activity, which are the peaks, followed by weeks of nothing, which are the troughs. With zero level marketing, instead of having these erratic patterns of activity, you have a minimum level of daily activity ie the line going through the centre of the sine wave, which ironically on a sine wave is called the zero level.

For example, pick an activity which is going to be your daily activity, your absolute minimum which you have to get before you go to bed. It could be someone like:

  • to do one blog post a day
  • to make 10 phone calls a day
  • to generate 5 leads a day
  • to connect with 20 people everyday

You get the idea. You see, whatever you choose as your daily marketing activity to move your business forward, this will become your “new zero level” of marketing. As you will be doing “something” on a daily basis, whatever your “something will be”, your peaks and troughs of erratic and inconsistent activity, will become a thing of the past because you will be CONSISTENT in your marketing.

Watch The Video Below On Zero Level Marketing

Can you imagine what your new zero level marketing will do to your business? Do you think daily, consistent activity, will transform your business? Absolutely!!!

And after 21 days, your new routine will become a habit! When I saw this video, I was like, “This is so simple, why didn’t I think of this?”

So, banish inconsistency in your marketing and take your business forward with a daily, consistent marketing activity by creating and developing a new zero level of marketing.

MLM Recruiting Secrets: Gain Instant Rapport With Your Prospects Pt5

complimentWant to know how to gain instant rapport with your prospects? Giving a compliment, if done correctly, can put you in rapport with your prospect. In part 4 we learned how a smile is your best rapport building tool – read pt4 here

Giving a sincere compliment is not quite as easy as it seems. We seem to live in a society where we seem to come across as “big headed” if we accept a compliment. So, if the compliment is obvious, the prospect can feel ill at ease and a sense of embarrassment to accept it. And if your prospect is ill at ease and feeling embarrassed, you have not gained rapport. So don’t make obvious compliments such as:

  1. You are looking good today.
  2. That’s a swish car you have out there on the drive. You’re obviously doing well for yourself.
  3. You dress really nice.

Follow up the compliment with a question

So, when you next meet with a prospect and give them a compliment, follow it up with a question. By following up a compliment with a question:

  1. It takes the pressure off the prospect because they have a question to answer
  2. It does not come across as being obvious as it is subtle.

Watch The Video Below On How To Be Subtle When Giving A Prospect A Compliment

Subtlety Is The Key

Let’s take the 3 compliments above and make them less obvious:

  1. You’re always so cheerful. How do you do it what with having a 50 hour work week and running a busy household?
  2. I have had my eye on that same model. How is it on the fuel consumption?
  3. I like your shoes. Where did you buy them from?

You see the difference? By adding a question, your compliment comes across as being:

  1. Subtle and less obvious
  2. Your prospect is at ease because they have a question to answer
  3. If your prospect is at ease, your in rapport

MLM Recruiting Secrets: Gain Instant Rapport With Your Prospects Pt4

smiling womanGain Instant Rapport With Your Prospects

This is part 4 of my blog series How To Gain Instant Rapport With Your Prospects. In part 3 we learned how two words can put your prospects at ease and put you in instant rapport – read it here

Sales resistance comes from a human program in the subconscious mind called “Survival.” We are all born with this program and it is this “Survival” program that warns us of all sorts of dangers and keeps us safe.

A good example of this is when a baby comes into contact with a stranger. How does the baby know if the stranger is safe or dangerous? The baby instinctively looks for a smile. You see, when we smile at babies, they relax and smile back at us because they know we are safe and they lower their resistance towards us.

Watch The Video Below To See How Your Smile Can Help You Gain Instant Rapport With Your Prospects

And it is the same with adults too. We are instinctively wary of people who we do not know. When you come into contact with strangers or pass people in the street, they will look at you to size you up, to try and work out if you are safe or if you are someone they should be wary of. But as soon as you give them a sincere and friendly smile, they lower their guard and return the smile because they know you are safe.

Try this experiment. Give a friendly and sincere smile to everyone you pass in the street and see how many people return your smile. You will be amazed!

So, your smile is one of your best rapport building tools as it instantly puts people at ease. And if people feel at ease with you, you are in rapport.
