WHAT TO DO WHEN YOUR UPLINE DOESN’T WANT YOU TO USE THE INTERNET TO BUILD
STEP 1: FIND THE BEST TARGET MARKET
The best target market for me to go after, consists of people who have already said YES to a home business.
In fact, on a daily basis a ton of networkers, across the world voluntarily send me their contact information, showing interest in either my business, my mentorship or both.
This is possible because instead of pitching my opportunity to them, I focus my efforts on solving THEIR problems and addressing their needs.
STEP 2: DEMONSTRATE VALUE
I never chase people or try to convince people to join my business. Instead, I attract by demonstrating value and leadership through effective marketing.
In fact, in the past 2 months alone, I’ve had over 100 people get a hold of me, wanting to find out what company I am with and how they can work with me. Crazy huh?
To my surprise, many of the folks I spoke to, didn’t really know me too well. They just knew they wanted what I had to offer and were just hoping I would help them build their business.
The trick here is to position what you offer as valuable, in a way that no one else does. And I can tell you for certain it’s a lot easier to ask for an enrolment fee, when they are asking you if they can work with you.
STEP 3: CREATE WEBSITES & EMAILS THAT SELL FOR YOU
I will absolutely not sit on the phone all day, cold calling people and pitch them on my opportunity.Nor will I drive for hours to go prospect. I have done that… and it is a waste of my time. In fact, I have setup simple websites and automated email systems that actually do the selling for me.
The only way I’m going to get on the phone with someone who wants to buy something form me or join my business, is if they are sure they want to get started and maybe have a few clarifying questions. Even then, I still insist on interviewing EVERYONE I would be personally be working with.
Believe it or not, there are a lot of crazies out there. lol. ￼
STEP 4: BUILD “YOU, INC.”
I don’t focus simply on just building a network marketing or direct sales opportunity, which may or may not be around in 5 years. My focus for the past year has been on building my BRAND or YOU INC, which consist of a community, email list and reputation I can take with me wherever I go.
Fact of the matter, is that I’ve actually been in 3 different business opportunities in the last 15 years, which have come and gone, but now my business income continues to grow at an average rate of 30% every year, and will continue regardless of what company I am with.
That is only possible because of the brand and reputation I cultivated over the past year. Your network marketing business is just the vehicle, but not your TRUE business.
My email list has become an online distribution channel, which brings stability and growth. It also allows me to build another business or opportunity with the click of a mouse, should something ever happen to my opportunity.
STEP 5: PEOPLE WHO SAY “NO” ARE AWESOME!
One of the keys to bringing stability to my income was when I accepted the fact that 90% of the people you find anywhere will say “NO” to your products or opportunity.
I found a way to make these people customers in other ways, by providing solutions to their biggest problems and needs, which means I make money either way, even when they say ‘no’ to my opportunity.
Which honestly is the coolest thing ever!
The very best part of learning how to build your business this way, is instead of having that dreaded feeling.. “ugh, I have to go prospect or make cold calls”, your business becomes fun again. You will have loads of people to talk to daily, and that “needing them” to make money “anxiety” goes away.
Your posture grows and your business grows even faster because people will follow those who know where they are going.
These people reach out to you and it is so refreshing!
STEP 6: BUILD AN EMPIRE
Master networkers know that their goal is not to build just a downline or home business. It’s to build a business than can serve the needs of an entire industry.
When what you’ve created can influence the direction of an industry, not only can you build a downline, not only can you build a financial legacy… you can be a FORCE other leaders want to attach themselves to.
Now, I’m not saying that what I’ve just outlined is “THE BEST” way to build. All I can share with you is what it has done for me…
Not only do I get to build my business from home…
Not only do I wake up and have commission notices everyday…
I haven’t prospected a single stranger or shared my opportunity with a family member in the past year.
By focusing on solving problems and adding value to an industry, I attract literally 20 to 50 networkers per day to my email list.
I generate between 2 to 5 customers per day…
And about 4 to 5 per month decide they want to become serious business builders with my help.
The blueprint for all this, I’ve outlined inside this 10-Day Online Recruiting Bootcamp, which will teach you the art of ‘attraction marketing,’ specific to your needs.
If you are like me and prefer to actually BE HOME while building your home business and do it in a way, which generates prospects and customers for your business, while you are sleeping, eating or out with friends… then you owe it to yourself to check it out.
