Ah, so you want to convince people to join your downline, right?
Well, what is your up line teaching you?
I see most of you shaking your heads and saying, “nope, what they are telling me to do isn’t working for me.”
What I am about to share with you, is most likely not very popular with your up line. If it were, then they would be teaching you these things too. But they’re not.
What I am about to give you, is some information that could literally change the course of your network marketing career. I am talking about exponential change in the down-ward direction – your downline.
How do I convince people to join my downline?
No doubt you have had thoughts like this at some time or other, and yet, still you are dumbfounded as to why it’s not working.
Thoughts like this:
Am I not in a good enough company? A company that doesn’t attract the masses.
Am I not passionate enough about everything? A winning personality that sweeps people right into your downline.
Do I not have a big enough “WHY”? They always tell you to get a big “why” and then use that to convince your friends and family to join you…etc.
Do I not understand my product well enough? Sometimes you stutter or stumble when trying to answer a question about your company’s product.
Am I not going to enough nightly, weekly, monthly, yearly, regional, global…..company meetings? You are going to them, but it still doesn’t grow your downline. Also, you are running out of money, because the meetings cost.
Do I not know enough people? You are running out of friends and family, or they are running away from you. 🙂
Am I even cut out for this kind of business? You don’t like to talk on the phone, and you aren’t convincing very many people to join you.
Ok, I know that these questions have perhaps stirred up some pain, and I’m sorry about that, but please listen to what I am about to tell you.
Those 7 thoughts I just listed up there are real. I have dealt with each one of them at various times, and some of them I still deal with. However, I have to keep reminding myself and coming back to this one key, which I about to share with you. At first you are going to be surprised at how simple it is, but then after you think about it for a while, you will realize that it is true.
The key to convincing people to join your downline is simply this- Have a relationship with them, based on trust and respect, first.
What in the world am I talking about?
If you are a person that has the trust and respect of a group of like minded people who are all basically working towards the same thing, then you can suggest that they join you in a certain opportunity, and most likely they will.
It’s not about your company, and how good of a product or comp plan they have.
It’s not about how big your ‘why’ is or how charismatic you are or are not.
It’s not about how many meetings you attend or how well you know your product.
It’s all about your relationship with the people that you are prospecting.
Do you have a relationship with a group of people that are looking up to you and trusting you in what you tell them? A group of people that are all looking for basically the same answers, and you’ve been able to give them those answers over time? A group of people that respect you and would love to be in your downline?
This is the KEY to being able to convince people to join your downline.
“But,” you say, “I have lots of family and friends who respect me but they laughed in my face when I asked them to join my downline.”
I know exactly what you mean and how you feel, but this is not the group of people that you need to be prospecting. They are not respecting you or trusting you in the context of a network marketing business.
You need to be a person that attracts people from all over the world to your knowledge or expertise, and they will be the ones that will literally jump to be in YOUR downline.
So, don’t seek to convince people to join your downline, but rather seek to convince people that you have some of the answers to the problem they have, and they will want to work with you.
That’s the key. That’s the way to do it.
If this is new to you, then you are probably going to go on a journey and start searching for ways to do what I just told you.
That’s ok, I did too.
But if you get to place where you don’t know which way to turn, visit my website or shoot me an email, I’ll get you some answers.
