Unless you already came from a public speaking or sales background, you probably are winging it when it comes to communicating with your network marketing prospects.
In today’s automated lifestyle, we have come to rely too heavily on electronic means of communication. We email and invite people to sign up for our RSS feeds and free stuff to get into our autoresponder lists. That way we can avoid having to talk to people.
There’s an old saying, People are only afraid of what they do not understand or do not know.
When most people get started in Network Marketing, they are told to do what their sponsor does. Or they should follow the company training.
That’s all fine, but what if what your sponsor or company does doesn’t gel with your personality or interests? What if you’re a more reserved green personality and your sponsor is an outgoing blue personality?
That might never work!
So, what Tom ‘Big Al’ Schreiter recommends is that as sponsors we need to make sure our teammates are focusing on duplicating our results, not merely duplicating our activities.
What activities a person uses to generate leads needs to
first, be proven methods currently used to find people to talk to, and
second, connect in some way to your passion & interests.
My friend and fellow Mentor, Matt Geib, just did a video tutorial on how to focus on Results and Not Activity.
Some people struggle for years in MLM doing the wrong activities and never getting the results they thought they were supposed to be getting.
Some people have discovered the secret to honoring their own unique talents and learn how to market themselves using methods that suit their style.
