You would agree with me that there is one thing that is vital in order to have a great career in network marketing, and that one thing is RECRUITING!
The most important skill you need to have the success you want in network marketing is the recruiting skill.
And if you don’t constantly recruit new people into your business, your business will not grow as fast as it could, and in some cases, it will not grow at all.
So, if recruiting is vital for a network marketer; becoming a great recruiter is also vital for you.
Moreover, many network marketers usually become desperate and needy when it seems there is not a constant stream of new leads coming their way, so they begin to nag and beg the leads that they do have.
This is a sure way to not only fail at building relationships with your current leads, but also a great way to frustrate yourself and lose motivation for future prospecting efforts.
You also come across as a person who is not a leader and is not valuable to your potential prospects; and believe me, they can sense the desperation.
However, let’s all be honest here… We are human and we make mistakes.
But it just makes good sense to learn from others who have already made the mistakes and can tell you how to avoid them.
So in today’s post, I will be sharing 3 recruiting mistakes to avoid in network marketing.
3 RECRUITING MISTAKES TO AVOID IN NETWORK MARKETING
1. DON’T BE DESPERATE
Are you like myself?
I noticed that when people are desperate, you can see it a mile-away.
Have you noticed this too?
Someone will run from you when I sensed that you are desperate, so people run from people who are desperate. It’s so obvious.
Desperate network marketers will talk to the same few people over and over, bugging them and trying to convince them to join their business or make a purchase.
You don’t need to chase after people, in fact, professional network marketers doesn’t chase people, instead, they attract.
Chasing after people is not the way to build a successful network marketing business.
Spending too much time desperately chasing a few people just doesn’t work.
You need to understand this fact that, there’s abundance of people everywhere.
If it seems like others are not interested in your business. That’s OK!
Always remember this, it is not everyone that will be as excited about your business as you are.
Another thing to do instead of chasing and convincing people is this, sort your prospects.
Like I said earlier on, professional network marketers doesn’t chase after prospects, the sort, sponsor and teach.
Answer this question : Wouldn’t you rather talk to and present your business to 100 people instead of the same few people over and over?
What do you think? You know the answer already!
I’ve had the unpleasant experience of convincing prospects to join my business and guess what?
They did so reluctantly and did absolutely nothing with their business.
It is like this, if we were a football team and you are not someone who can play football or excited about it.
And I ended up convincing you to join us on the pitch, does that help the team entirely? No sir!
It helps no one and so also is what happens whenever you convinced of force someone to join your network marketing business.
Find people who want it as much as you do and avoid making this recruiting mistake!
When people say no, or just don’t seem too interested, move on! Thank them for their time and ask them if they know anyone who might be interested. Referrals work great!
Then find more people to talk to using attraction marketing techniques.
The more people you talk to the more chances you have of finding someone who gets it!
That’s the best way to grow your success with network marketing recruiting.
2. SPAMMING IN ONLINE NETWORK MARKETING IS A NO NO
With the way that people spam their network marketing business opportunity links online you’d think this sport of activity must be driving results if so many people are doing it. This is WRONG!
The only thing worse than having no prospects is having angry and annoyed prospects.
Never send mass messages in the hopes you’ll catch a few people who are interested in your business… It does not work that way.
Trust me, I have been there before and I have done that but the fact is, it doesn’t work!
The key to successful recruiting in your business is to make yourself attractive to those that are seeking a successful business as well.
If you are successful at this, you won’t have to worry about finding new prospects because they will be finding you.
If you really want to reach more people, you will need to join the relative social media group niche.
It could be on Facebook, and/or other social media platforms.
Don’t spam people with your links, contribute to whatever they are relating on in the group.
Add value to the group by creating and dropping content that relates to your niche on the group.
If you want people to message you or reach out to you at the end of the post, just add call to action to it.
Another thing you can do is to answer people’s questions relating to your niche in quora.com
When people see that you answer these questions, they’d see you as experts, it is by themselves that they will reach out to you.
Create post that solves people’s problems relating to your niche and share it on your social media handles or groups where you belong.
And if you want to do quick action and ready to invest some cash, have a Facebook page and run some Facebook ads.
They are inexpensive and can add another dimension to your online network marketing results.
3. NOT LISTENING
I would have to rate this as one of the top mistakes many network marketers make.
Listening is one of the essential skills in life generally.
Many network marketers get so ingrained with talking that they forget to stop sometimes and allow the prospect to talk.
And even if they do allow this to happen, the network marketer doesn’t listen and acknowledge the prospect.
Look at it this way, if maybe you are sick and call your doctor that you are sick and without asking anything from you about how you are feeling of taking any hypothesis and the doctor just says that you should go and take Panadol when all you are feeling is dysentery. How will you see this Doctor?
Quack right? Great!
This is how many prospects see some network marketers who don’t take the time to listen to the seeds of discontentment in their prospects before asking them to buy or join their company.
Don’t make this kind of mistake.
I am speaking of active listening.
Tune in to the prospect and hear what they are saying.
In many situations, the prospect will tell you why they do need the opportunity and provide you with an “easy close.”
In the same sense, if you don’t listen and try to close with benefits the prospect has no real interest in, they will realize that you did not hear a word they said and in many cases, will say no.
