You may have had the expectations from that very first meeting that this was your ticket to freedom…
That’s how I saw it after I was shown my business opportunity…
But usually, for most network marketers, that initial dream can turn into a nightmare very quickly…
I’ve had some financial success using offline tactics and strategies where I’ve been able to retire my wife from her job as a Doctor of Physical Therapy so she can be a stay at home mom of our 3 small children.
We’ve earned the free incentive trips to exotic locations and we’ve built some teams, but we’ve never built the business as big or as stable as we’ve wanted to, until now.
We’ve built teams, and we’ve had teams go backward. It’s always been a cycle of peaks and valleys.
I originally built my business “following the system” of:
Sound familiar? Have you done this pattern as well?
Are you as tired as I was doing this?
I tell ya, I just wanted to be the superhero to my wife and kids, and build a business that would give our family time and money freedom.
But it seemed like the harder I worked offline, all I kept getting was more frustrated, and I was spending more and more time away from my family!
I just knew that there had to be a better way, but I didn’t know what to do or what to change.
It seemed like everyone was glued to their smart phones, and that to me was very intriguing because what I needed in my business was more eyeballs on my business and my products, information, and opportunity.
I noticed that Facebook got the attention of most of the people that I knew, and people were spending hours on that platform everyday.
So I got the best idea (so I thought) and I decided to start “advertising” on Facebook.
Little did I know that all I was doing was being a spammer, but I didn’t even know it!
I thought that by posting everything about my company and my company’s products and launches that I’d be building brand awareness, and my customers would come flocking to me…
Boy was I wrong.
Successful entrepreneurs and networkers alike eventually learn the true secret to success and it becomes the foundation upon which their entire prospecting, recruiting and business building strategy is founded.
That secret being:
It’s about actually caring about people, becoming a person of value and being someone uniquely positioned to help someone with their problems. That last one is critical “uniquely positioned to help someone with their problems.”
Any idiot can copy and paste a message into the Private Message function on Facebook.
What sets you apart from the rest of the desperate reps hitting people’s inboxes with their new “ground floor” opportunities or cash programs?
Now this doesn’t mean, prospecting online doesn’t work. I know some very skilled recruiters who are excellent at online prospecting, but just like offline prospecting, they’ve devoted the time and effort to learn this very difficult skill and have mastered it. And if that’s the strategy you want to deploy, you need to do it right or else!
But if you’re still a little fuzzy on whether you are a spammer or not, here’s a guide of sorts…
1) You first private message to a stranger on social media includes a link to join your opportunity.
2) You get angry replies via private messaging and/or you have been reported as a spammer.
3) You post links to your opportunity or website in the comments section of other people’s social media posts
4) You compulsively want to talk about your company or products, without anyone asking you to share.
Finally… this one is the most important one…
5) You engage in interactions online, with a hidden agenda, hoping to transition the topic to something that would get people interested in your opportunity, without caring about knowing the other person.
This last one for me is a big one but could also be controversial.
After all, #5 is the very definition of prospecting (online or offline), which even when done right… can still feel awkward, result in people getting angry at you and very unleveraged, which is why I eventually decided to stop prospecting all together.
But here’s the interesting thing…
I can’t tell you how relieved and at peace I felt, when I once again, was able to go out with my friends, visiting a family member’s home or be in a public place without having to think about prospecting anyone.
Just enjoying being normal again, was incredible, after two years of being taught by my upline that “everyone was a prospect” and approaching every conversation with a hidden agenda, I was free!
At this point, you may be asking, “then how the hell did your business grow?”
Well before I answer that, I have to say that there are people who are very skilled prospectors and recruiters who completely disregard the issues I mentioned above.
They knowingly and without shame, approach every interaction with a stranger as a prospecting opportunity.
Getting yelled at or cursed out by prospects is no big deal, as long as some people say ‘yes.’
And just like doing it right offline, there’s a way to successfully do it online as well. After learning and becoming very good at prospecting, I decided that I didn’t want to build my business this way.
The problem with prospecting in general, as it’s normally taught, is that the mindset going in, is still about what YOU want people to do and about manipulating people into doing what you want them to do.
In other words, it’s about YOU, not them. I didn’t like that, but I still did it for a little while… until I did find a better way.
Now, I am not trying to be high and mighty about all this prospecting stuff, because I’m not.
If it came down to feeding my family with ‘stone cold’ prospecting tactics or my kids starving, I choose stone cold prospecting every time, without remorse.
But the reason I was able to quit prospecting was because, with the help of some extraordinary mentors, I eventually discovered an online recruiting strategy, which…
Enabled me to recruit more people in 1 Day, than the most skilled recruiter in the world can do in 1 month I was able to passively generate leads, customers and new reps – even when I was out having fun with friends and family.
(Hence why I didn’t have to worry about prospecting them!)
Rather than spending hours spamming or private messaging people on social media, I learned how to legitimately get Facebook and other networks to actually help me attract the people who are most interested in what I have to offer, using their ads platform! (i.e. going legit!)
In fact, every day for almost 7 months now, I’ve awoken to email inbox notifications for new leads, new customers, and commissions I earned while sleeping!
This strategy is called ‘attraction marketing’, which is an internet marketing strategy designed for networkers and people in direct sales!
You see, if your business depends on you being on social media, sending private messages or commenting on people’s posts all day, you are NOT doing internet marketing… despite what you may have been led to believe.
Online prospecting and internet marketing are NOT the same thing!
Internet marketing is a passive strategy, which works, even when you are not.
If you want to learn how it works, I actually reveal the entire strategy I’ve been using, in a Free 10-Day Online Recruiting Bootcamp available here.
You’ll also get more details about a book my mentor wrote, which is goes into the nuts n’ bolts of my recruiting & selling formula.
Now if traditional prospecting online or offline is your thing and you want to stick to that, by all means, go for it.
There are many top trainers and earners of mine in the industry that focus on cold market recruiting skills…
(And they do ‘attraction marketing’ too!)
For me, there was simply a certain way I wanted to live my life and that was more important.
I would much rather make a ton of money in my business first and then have my friends and family beg me to tell them more about it it.
It’s much better than begging my friends and family to join a business which isn’t making any money.
