Ever Been Asked “What Do You Do?” In Network Marketing

Ever Been Asked What You Do?

The basics of network marketing is being a communicator.  People normally ask each other, “What do you do?”  This is your chance to share what your network marketing business opportunity is about and get a lead right!? Wrong.  Typically what networkers do is turn people off.  Here’s and example…

Person:What is it that you do?

"What do you do question, network marketing"

Ron Networking Locally, What do you do question?

Networker:  I show people how to make money from home while losing weight, or I make money from home while helping people transform their bodies.

(silence and wait for the person to say something about what the networker just said)

It’s pretty obvious what the networker is trying to do here.  They are trying to get the other person interested.  This is not coming from a position of power.

Here is How to Answer, What do You Do the right way

Person: Hey mr networker, what do you do?

You: (pick 1 of these options) I teach people how to make a part time income from home. -Or- I teach people how to make money using the internet.  –Or- I train people to make an income from home.

Followed immediately by a question about the other person. If they are in real estate for example,

You:…income from home.  So Mr. Realtor do you mainly deal in higher end homes or medium price range?

small business owner…

You:…income from home.  So Mr. business owner how long have you been working in the _______industry?

This works well because your baiting the person to ask you about your business but your doing it nonchalantly and returning to the other person.  This is the opposite of what most networkers do.  This keeps you looking powerful and that you don’t “need” someone to talk to or sign up in your business.  People are most interested in themselves.  When you operate like you don’t need other people, they need your services, you are performing as a professional.  By keeping the conversation focused on the other person you can learn if they are even someone you want to work with or if you can help them.

Your goal is this, 1. who is open, 2. who can I help that is open, 3. Do I want to work with this person.

Picture this.  You go to apply for a Job and during the interview the HR person is spending all of the time talking about how great the company is, how awesome the benefits are, how great you are going to be working for them, ect ect.  Typically HR people are qualifying and asking questions about their potential employee.  See how this can be a little weird, off putting even!

Be honest with your words.

“He who guards his lips guards his life, but he who speaks rashly will come to ruin.” Proverbs 13:3

Make it an awesome day!

    Hi Ron,

    Clever tip here 😉

    Asking persistent questions makes a recruiter’s job easier.

    You ask, the individual answers. The focus in on them. What they do. How they do it.

    So no ego-based boasting. No chest-thumping. No bragging on your part.

    I’ve received calls from successful entrepreneurs who weren’t really successful.

    They made plenty of money but used bullshit, forceful, coercive, destructive methods to do it.

    Karma can be your best friend or worst enemy. Make friends with karma.

    Intend to help. Intend to serve. Intend to ask questions, listen, see if someone is a match, then proceed to match their issues with your solution.

    Thanks Ron!
