You have the freedom to prospect whoever you want. Some say yes as its always best to help people who already know like and trust you, others say wait until you have some success to go to the family and close friends. Maybe this story will help. Friendly Frank just opened a pizza shop in town. He makes some of the best pizza you have ever tasted (he is from jersey ). His highschool best friend walks through the front door during the first week the pizza joint is open. Bob and Frank are so happy to connect and talk again. Bob is such a good friend of frank’s. Bob is hungry and came to get some pizza. Frank, “bob im sorry but I can’t sell you any pizza, see you are a friend of mine since we been in highschool and I just feel weird making money off you.” Bob is really confused by this, I mean they been friends for so long and Frank won’t let him taste some of the best pizza in the world cause he is afraid of what might happen to Bob or what Bob thinks. Doesn’t this story seem strange?
How to Not Be a Sales Person to Friends and Family
The term salesperson for some reason has taking on a negative connotation and people instantly think used car sales man. You really need to transition from salesperson, whose 1 objective is sell something, to problem solver, whose objective is to help someone and provide value from an attitude of servitude. How not to be salesy when prospecting in my mlm was new to me at first, then I learned this secret tip!
Learn about the people who are having success in your company and hear their story. There are teachers, retail salespeople, students, waiters, ect that are all having success in your company. Use their story while MLM prospecting people with the same occupation or common ground. Check out this video below for an example.

MLM Prospect Warm Market Script
“Hey Johnny McProspect! Hey you are still a waiter right? Well get this, I was at this event last night, talking with this guy last night, watched this video this morning, ect of a Waiter having a lot of success in this business i just started, he actually reminded me a lot of you! share 1 or 2 details about success. This may or may not be for you, would you be open to a side project if it didn’t interfere with what you are currently doing?”
IF they say yes
“Just curious Johnny McProspect why would you be open? just curious, with everything going on in this world, why would you be open to a side project?”
If you ask a prospect, WHY, the prospect tells you why they should look at your opportunity. It removes you from looking like a salesperson and moves you into the space of being a problem solver.

At your job or business you know what tasks and activities you do on a daily basis. We know why we do them and we know why they work. In our industry I am sure you have heard people talk about having “your why.” Thats fine and dandy but its not whats going to keep you going consistently through the speed bumps of Network Marketing. If you noticed, everyone has a “Why,” well why haven’t they accomplished the why yet? Here is how to make your why become a reality.
Daily Plan of Action MLM
In order to have your why become a reality you need to create consistent results. This is done by having a daily plan of action. Industry legend and giant Larry Thompson taught the simple strategy of 10 pennies. Larry Thompson is one of the founders of herbalife and has earned over 100million as a rep in the field. He achieved those pay levels with 10¢ a Day.
How Can 10¢ a Day Give Me Consistent Results?
Larry Would everyday have 10 pennies in his right pocket and his goal is to move the pennies over to the left pocket. You can move 1 penny every time you prospect someone about your business. Larry would not go home until he moved his 10 pennies. Now if your only working 5 days a week, thats 50 people a week you are prospecting, 52 weeks a year, that’s 2600 people a year! I like having something tangible in my hands that’s reminding me all day long to prospect. This made Larry Thompson focused on moving his pennies, not on the outcome or the addiction of recruiting another representative.
You see Larry knew this would work for him. Larry had his why but more importantly he knew that this simple 10 pennies a day as an mlm daily plan of action would work. Why does it work?
Why Does 10¢ a Day a Work?
When you are focused on just moving pennies, your focus shifts from addiction and lack of signing someone up to a profit producing activity. This concept of daily mlm action plan will help you to prospect 2600 people a year. All your committing to is prospecting nothing more. This is the #1 profit producing activity that will grow your business and get you paid, bottom line. I did a detailed company training on Daily MLM Plan of Action and How to Talk to 30 people a day for my primary business, look at this VIDEO POST for more. It doesn’t matter how you talk to 10 people a day, just matters that you do it.
Last Post we covered how to deal with prospects who don’t do what they say they are going to do. When you have mastered the strategy in the last post in conjunction with today’s 2 MLM Prospecting Tips you are going to experience a positive shift with your prospecting numbers. Today we are focusing on prospecting with power and confidence. Lets jump right in!
Use MLM Prospecting Tie Downs and Take Aways
Filled our Meetings, Using these Prospecting Tips
Anytime I am talking with someone about coming to a meeting or viewing a presentation and sense and hesitation, reluctance, or disinterest I take my business opportunity away from them. I use powerful mlm prospecting techniques like Tie Downs and Take Aways.
Use MLM Take Aways
Me: Mr. prospect, if you not serious about, __Repeat back their needs___, its ok you don’t have to check it out. I’m really looking for people who are open that I can help.
Use MLM Tie Downs
Me: Mr. Prospect, are you actually going to watch this video to help you with__Repeat back their needs__ ? Cause if your not its ok, we can save each other some time. I just want to help people.
Me: Mr. Prospect, I need you to watch the video at www.xyzcompany.com in order for me to even consider working with you. Now I am really excited about this. How soon can you watch this video? Ok you said 5 o clock, do I have your permission to call you at 6 and get some feedback?
You are still going to have people that don’t show up and don’t watch the presentation. These 2 strategies are going to reduce the number of people that don’t show and don’t do what they say. What is nice is that some people will come right out and say that they aren’t serious and they will back out. This is great because it saves you a ton of time and you don’t have to deal with tire kickers.
Today’s post is focusing on mlm prospeting: how to talk to cold leads. In other words prospecting people that don’t know you and you don’t know them. Its important to realize that if someone is responding to your marketing that you have the value and what they are looking for. You have control. Check out this video about MLM Prospecting and hear what I’m talking about.
Welcome to network marketing! Today’s post is speaking to new home based business entrepreneurs and network marketers. If you are new to MLM this post is for you. Network Marketing is what I consider to be the last bastion of free enterprise. One of the unique things in life is that with $1500 or less you can have a business that gives you freedom to spend more time with family, pay off debts, and become financially free! Life is too short to be stuck working forever. Its important to realize that network marketing is not a “get rich quick scheme” but is a get rich plan but it is a long term plan. Everyone starts part time and as your team and income grows to a level of about 1.5 times your current income then it may make sense for you to make the transition to full time networker. (conversation you may want to have with your sponsor)
So What Should New Network Marketers Expect?
IF you are new to network marketing, congratulations! The feeling of overwhelming excitement and nervous energy is one that many of us haven’t felt since we were kids. I mean you just started a business that going to create financial freedom for you and your family! But wait just a second there buddy, cause negative nancy, bitter betty, and hating harry are coming around to corner to steal that dream from you. Its surprising to new network marketers when friends and family appear negative or skeptical about your new business but very typical. Often times because of the new excitement and energy we want to share with everyone the powerful reality of truly having a better life through home based business. However, the excitement/passion can scare off others because of our communication method. You see if a realtor wants you to buy a house he tells you where the house is and takes you to it to check it out. He lets the house sell and doing the heavy lifting. Now in network marketing you need also act like a professional. Meaning, don’t explain, chase, beg, bug, or hound people to join/look at your network marketing opportunity. If you do, you appear desperate, scammy, and even crazy! I Can’t tell you how valuable it was for me to start with someone who was full time and new what they were doing, man that cut months and maybe years off my learning curve. Often times in this industry its the blind leading the blind, so be cautious and research your potential sponsor, company, and the system the company is using to duplicate. I encourage you to look into grabbing a copy of what I consider to be the Network Marketing Bible. I haven’t met a top earner that hasn’t read this book. I think its smart to be prepared for everything. Network Marketing Bible
Uncensored, Unbiased Reality of Network Marketing
The Good, The Bad, and The Not So Handsome
The beautiful thing about network marketing is that anyone can have a home based business for $1500 OR LESS. The bad thing is ANYONE can have a home based business. Its important to understand that professional network marketers are not out there to recruit every single person they know/meet. Some people you don’t want to work with and may actually bring some stress to my stress free home based business. Its important to know who are the best people for your home based business. The good thing about network marketing is that anyone that is willing to follow our proven system and stay consistent over time can create a 6 figure residual income, its just going to take some a little longer than others. The good thing about mlm business is that I have the freedom to create my own hours and work when and where I want. The bad thing is i have that same freedom but no one is telling me what to do, I have full control over my time, I don’t have to punch a clock, so the only one that is responsible for my own success is me. You have to be the one willing to do the work when you don’t feel like it; in Corporate America if you don’t feel like it, well you’re fired. In home based business we may call that Tuesday or Wednesday. You can take off whenever you want and not lose money, not lose anything and be able to return to your business without fires to put out. This past week my grandpa had a risky surgery so i took off for the week to go to NJ to be with my family. When I returned home there was an additional $715.81 that I wasn’t expecting produced for me that week while I was with my family. So lets just make sure we got this down. Corporate America take off for 1 week=no pay and playing catch up work, home business= take off for 1 week and I got paid $715.81 to be with my family in scary situation. The not so handsome thing is that we been told that the traditional road is the only way to a happy successful life. The reality is that path still works for some but its becoming narrower and smaller as uncertainty in the economy/job market continues. Again the best thing is that anyone with a hunger and desire can change can view a legitimate home based business opportunity and realize with consistent efforts and a proven system that a life that touches, moves, and inspires is truly possible. Imagine what life would look like if you had just an extra $500 coming in; did you know that would save roughly 90% of foreclosures in America? Realize that you have the power to help people.
