Getting To Yes: Overcoming Network Marketing Objections

The anticipation is building!  I've come such a long way.  And now it's finally coming to fruition.  My book launch is just around the corner!

Whether you have been involved in network marketing for 10 days or 10 years, have earned $100 or $100,000, you all have something in common.  Just like me, you all have heard the dreaded network marketing objection.  Perhaps it was the "I don't have time" objection.  Or maybe it was the "Those things don't work" speech.  Or my personal favorite, "Network Marketing?  Isn't that illegal?"

Chances are you were also taught to overcome those objections the same way I was.  Simply overpower your prospect with what an amazing opportunity they are missing out on, how they will soon be richer than Midas with no effort, and how they will soon be able to quit their jobs and be laying on a beach somewhere, living a life of leisure.  And if that doesn't work, get them on yhe phone with someone in your upline so they can tell them the same thing. 

If you have been in this situation - and we all know you have - then you have discovered the same thing I did.  This doesn't work.  Even if you do manage to sign up your prospect, they are unlikely to go on to build a successful business of their own.  Why?  Because you never really addressed their objections.  Prospects who become recruits because of unrealistic promises or bullying are unlikely to stay or build a strong team of their own.  And if you ever want to build your business to the point that you don't have to be recruiting 24/7, then you need strong teams under you.

That's why I wrote this book.  Over the course of my 15+ years in the business, I discovered something.  Most of these objections aren't even real.  They are simply masks for an underlying fear.  Address the fear and the objection vanishes.  Now you have a willing recruit, ready to get to work to create a new lifestyle for herself and her family.

So here's the deal.  You can continue prospecting as you have been.  You might get lucky and even get one or two recruits that stick around and build something.  But once you've gone through all of your friends and family and those recruits you did have quit and start badmouthing you and your business because they didn't make any money, what are you going to do? 

If you want a better way, you can start on the right foot with your prospects and help them understand and truly overcome the fear that keeps them captive in their current situation.  Yes, it requires that you really understand the industry and your company BEFORE you start prospecting.  And you will have to actually spend time with prospects.  The days of sitting them in front of a video, then pushing for that "yes" before letting your upline have a shot at them are gone forever.  But you will be rewarded with a team that trusts you, understands what they are getting into, and are ready and willing to get to work.  And that can make all of the difference in your business.

I will be releasing "Getting To /Yes" in the next few weeks.  I'd like to be sure you get your copy and some really cool bonuses with it.  Simply click here and complete the form at the bottom of the page.  I'll keep you updated on when the book is released and where you can get it.  And I'll tell you all about those bonuses. 

Remember - the only way to fail at network marketing is to QUIT!

Success Is A Journey

You're a little overweignt. Suddenly you see it! The hot new product that just hit the market. It's going to answer all your prayers. You buy it, and OMG! It works! The first 5 or 10 pounds just melt away.

You need some extra income. And wouldn't you know it? Your friend just signed up with a new company. It's amazing. People are making thousands of dollars overnight. You sign up. And... within a few days, you've enrolled a couple of your friends. Wow! This is easier than you thought it would be!

It’s only human nature to want things to be quick and easy, right? But when you get past those first 5 pounds what happens? You hit a plateau. Or you are very tired of tasteless, boring food and diet shakes. Now it's taking real, consistent work to keep losing. Eating right, drinking water, getting rest. But wait - what happened to that miracle quick fix plan?

You've enrolled a few of your best friends in your new company. But now you have run out of people you can pressure to join you. The rest of your friends and family have seen you do this before and aren't buying it this time. You sponsor and upline have pretty much abandoned you. Oh sure there are company "rah-rah" conference calls and some training that says keep bugging everyone you know or buy some leads and make some cold calls. But wait - this was supposed to be easy. You were supposed to make thousands of dollars in no time.

Sound familiar? New companies and new products all start out the same. Lots of excitement. Lots of hoopla. Everything is so easy. But eventually you will get to the point where it's going to take work - real, consistent work. That's when you need a team that will truly support you and show you the way. Or you can just keep jumping from one fad diet to the next, from one get-rich-quick company to another. And I promise you - 5 years from now you will be as physically and financially unfit as you ever were. I'm not trying to insult you. This is just reality.
True success is a journey, not a destination.  Sure, you can momentarily hit a goal.  And then you think you can stop working.  After all, this diet was supposed to be the last one you ever needed to try.  You've lost the weight easily and it will now magically stay off forever.  You've recruited a team and now you can relax and watch the money roll in.  But you have probably discovered by now that those promises just don't ever come true.  

If you're tired of jumping from product to product, program to program, company to company - if you're tired of promises that never materialize and plans that never pan out, let's talk.
