MLM Prospecting – The 2 MLM Success Secrets

A few years ago, I was listening to a new CD set from Jeffrey Combs called The Money Masters I. This is 8 separate CDs just full of incredible information on having the correct money mindset.

One CD especially grabbed my heart, because it talked about MLM prospecting and it showed me a completely different mindset on approaching prospects. This CD is by Doug Firebaugh. I quickly searched for him on Google and was amazed of the great content that he has on his blog. I encourage you to get to know Doug Firebaugh. He will help your MLM business in a very special way.

So here is an article by Doug Firebaugh about prospecting, rejection, deception and winning. I encourage you to really study this article. It will give you the freedom to not worry at all about what people think of you. When you fully realize that it is not YOU that they are rejecting, you will become unstoppable! Here it is:

How to Use “Scripts” to Connect With Your MLM Prospects

So many people in Network Marketing are really troubled over what to say to their friends and prospects. They have already stumbled over their words a number of times, and they came across something like this: “Would you please, kindly, please. I mean. I’ve got this new juice drink I know you’re gonna love. It’s a business too, but… well, uh,  you probably aren’t interested in that.”

After a number of rejections, they start wondering if there is a better way to approach people. I covered a different angle of this in “Your Approach To Your Business” in another post. But wouldn’t you know, a number of people have come out with “Script Books” and other aids to help people with this problem.

Why Did You Join Your MLM Business? So You Could Fail?

I was thinking today about all the people who are so anti-network marketing. They have an attitude against the whole industry. But I doubt seriously if they even know one small clue about what the MLM industry is all about.

Network marketing offers anybody a chance. It doesn’t matter what your background was like – whether you were born on the “other side” of the tracks, or were born with a silver spoon in your mouth. Everybody has the same opportunity – the same chance to succeed or fail.

One of the big reasons that people quit or fail, is they don’t remember or keep in focus WHY they joined their Network Marketing business in the first place. Usually they have reasons like these:

  • Freedom from a job they hate
  • Wanting financial security, because their job isn’t providing this
  • Desiring to live life to the fullest – and have the funds to do so
  • Spend more time with my kids, spouse, parents, etc.
  • Get me out of the financial straights and debt that is drowning me
  • Satisfaction of calling my own shots, and being a winner
  • I want to be a millionaire by the time I’m 30./
  • I want to look myself in the mirror and smile, knowing I proved them all wrong.

Why did you join the ranks of the wanna-be-wealthy people – using MLM as your ticket? What was going through your brain and emotions when you realized you didn’t have to follow the loser path of all your loser friends and negative family?

One of the reasons people quit their MLM business is because there is a disconnect between what they really want from the business (why they joined in the first place) and the daily work involved that is required to build a successful business. You will be very inspired and be more motivated to excel in your business if you remind yourself every day why you initially made the decision to become involved.

What is your motivation? What kind of dreams will your business make possible? Whose lives will you be impacting and contributing to with your success? What is the vision you carry with you? How will your network marketing business impact your very life? What big plans are you seeking to accomplish?

To keep reminding yourself of these dreams, and staying connected with them takes commitment. Doing the daily activities to see your dreams become a reality takes commitment also. You will build habits that will make the difference between being just a dreamer or wishful thinker – and someone whose dreams come true because you take consistent and deliberate action.

How long do you keep on “keeping on”?  There is a sad truth that has shown consistently how many people quit right before they would have won. In other words, they do all this work, and success is right around the corner. But discouragement steps in and they quit. I suggest that you give your network marketing business at least a year. And make sure you have a good system you are tapped into, like My Lead System Pro.  Without a good system to show you how you can generate leads every day that WANT your kind of business – you probably won’t last more than 2 months in network marketing.

You can be a winner. It is no accident that you are reading this blog post. Get connected with my Tribe – on the right of this page. Get going with My Lead System Pro. Get connected with all the training inside My Lead System Pro, and you won’t know yourself in 3 months.  And don’t forget to remind yourself daily of your big WHY.

How “Get Rich Quick” Thinking Sabotoges Your Business

I have a growing business where I assist offline businesses (think: brick and mortar) get an online presence that really kicks butt and gives them a great “edge” over their competition.

One of the big hurdles that I have to overcome is the general underlying feeling that if you have a website it should somehow be “instant profit” or at least a lot more “instant” than growing a regular offline business.

Most offline businesses don’t make a good profit for 2 to 3 years, sometimes many more years. This is considered “normal.” But when you pay $2000 to $10,000 or more for a fancy website, you expect it to start pulling in those customers and those dollars pretty quickly.

There is a disconnect in expectations online. It just doesn’t work that way. In fact if nothing is done to optimize a website and nothing is put in place to start attracting traffic and building a sales funnel, their website could sit for 20 years and never make them a dime.

This same “instant gratification” mentality is very prevalent in the Internet Marketing and Network Marketing mindset. For some reason, getting rich quick is the prevailing expectation, and when this doesn’t happen, people quit and jump into another business that is more promising. They just start the same unrealistic game over and over again.

What is disgusting is how the Gurus with the non-stop product launches use the “get rich quick” strategy to sell their products. And they sell a ton of them because of it. The copy writing is very skilled and polished, and is sucks a lot of hungry people in to latch on to yet another Shiny Object.

What can you do to keep this unreal “get rich quick” expectation from sabotaging your online business?

1)Quit buying any more money making programs. You already know enough. If you don’t, hang out in the Warrior forum and you will learn a lot there.

2) Plan on your online success taking about the same time as an offline business would take.

3) Don’t quit, and don’t jump from ship to ship. Stay your course and map out a definite plan as to where you will be every 3 months. If you can see progress, and see more leads being generated, this brings a lot of excitement. Keep doing more of the same.

4) Re-evaluate your plan, based on how well it is working or isn’t working. Change it if you need to, and commit again to working your plan.

Remember, Napoleon’s classic work is entitled “Think and Grow Rich.” There is not one bit of “get rich quick” thinking to be found in this great book.
