MLM Prospecting: How To
Recruit People You Know
Do I MLM Prospect my Friends and Family?
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.
