When I started my network marketing business the dream was to get “the rock star.”
Ferny knows your pain. And he has worked way past it. I am thrilled that I can share his knowledge and expertise with you.
Within the first 3 years of starting to build my network marketing business online, (after having struggled for my first 2 years & digging myself out of $60,000 of debt,) I managed to pull off the ULTIMATE DREAM of the average network marketer…
I recruited THREE 7-Figure Earners into my network marketing teams! Thinking back on it, it’s still a bit mind-boggling and would have NEVER thought of doing that when I first got started in this profession.
But here’s the kicker, I didn’t even have to “recruit” them. They literally, picked up the phone, called me and asked me what I was involved in, cause they were looking for a new company and wanted to do whatever I was doing.
This article is gonna share with not only HOW I did it, but why ANY active network marketer would ever consider joining your team.
So here goes…
There’s only ONE reason an active network marketer, who’s currently in another company, will drop what they’re doing and “jump ship” to join you and your opportunity.
I’ve been getting this question a lot from our community members.
Usually in something like the following scenario…
Let’s say you’ve implemented the basics of attraction marketing (i.e. building your biz online).
- Generating leads
- Talking to new prospects every day
- Attracting a following on social media
No one is joining your team quite yet!
You might be asking, “How do I invite people into my primary opportunity…?”
- “Should I get my prospects on video chat?”
- “Host an online event?”
- “Broadcast a Facebook Live?”
- “Use a Facebook Group strategy?”
- “Hop on a three-way call or three-way Messenger chat with my upline?”
“What should I specifically be doing to recruit my prospects into my team?”
Here’s the ONLY reason a networker will join you
And it’s this:
You must offer them a better way to build their business.
So there you have it—that’s the big “secret.”
Honestly, it all comes back to the fundamentals of attraction marketing.
Essentially, the reason people go online is that they’re struggling and looking for answers.
So if you’re currently building a following of other network marketers, you need to ask…
“What’s the biggest struggle people are having in their network marketing business?”
It always comes down to one of a few key issues…
- They are tired of rejection from their friends and family
- They don’t want to do home meetings anymore
- Whatever their upline is telling them isn’t working
And that’s the big one:
The recruiting strategies they’ve been taught don’t work!
At least, that’s what they think, anyway.
And you have to meet people where they are at.
Even if what they are being asked to do can work (with practice), their belief is that…
“This doesn’t work!”
So again, the best way to get those leads to drop what they are doing and consider joining you is this…
Offer them a better way to build their business!
Specifically, a way to build, which alleviates all the struggles and problems they’re currently having.
And what’s the single biggest problem new distributors experience in network marketing?
Generating leads, of course!
And surprise—that’s the first thing we teach here at Elite Marketing Pro: how to find new prospects for your network marketing business using online strategies.
So that’s square one: lead generation.
(Most don’t master this fundamental skill, unfortunately.)
Then, once you’re effectively generating leads, you must implement a recruiting process that transitions people from prospect to new distributor (or customer) in your business.
And then, once your prospects see your recruiting process in action (and that it works), that’s when they’re going to be willing and eager to join you.
And guess what?
They’ll know it’s working because it got them to join you!
After all, they just experienced the process first hand (when you recruited them), right?
Now, remember their problem:
How they’re being told to recruit isn’t working for them.
Your recruiting process is the solution to their problem. You’re not just trying to recruit people, you’re also showing them how they will be recruiting people and training new people.
So, whatever method you’re using to recruit people or bring new customers into your business, must be:
In other words…
Your system must work!
(As opposed to the one they’re using, which isn’t working for them.)
In essence, everything you’ve learned in the online world about how to attract prospects, and how to have conversations with people, is step one.
Now, step two is to start them on a process that’s going to transition them into either becoming a customer or a new distributor.
Let’s say you want to be able to “present the plan” to a large group of people and have them take action right there…
Like you would at a big hotel meeting.
Well, online you would do with a webinar.
Similarly, strategically leveraging Facebook Groups can also be an effective recruiting tool for one-to-many communication and community-building.
Honestly, there are a lot of online strategies that work.
Ultimately, you must figure out what’s going to work best for your business.
Because at the end of the day…
People won’t join you unless you have a superior business-building system…
…which teaches them how to attract prospects and new recruits to their business.
As I mentioned before, lead generation is the first thing we teach here at Elite Marketing Pro.
And once you’ve mastered the basics of attraction marketing, then you can learn one of the multiple methods we teach for transitioning prospects to new customers and recruits in your business.
The best way to attract active network marketers is to have a better recruiting system
Once you have a better business-building system than they have in their current organization, they will jump at the opportunity to join you.
You just need a presentation that’s going to demonstrate how your recruiting system works, and why it’s superior to most of what’s out there.
Now, I wish this didn’t need to be said—but it does—so, just to be 100% clear:
I’m not encouraging you to poach, spam, or generally be “douchy.”
If you are somebody who’s trying to poach in other people’s Groups, that’s not cool.
Likewise, if you’re trying to blatantly spam other people’s Groups or News Feeds, that doesn’t work either.
Look, even if you do manage to recruit a few people using underhanded tactics, they’re going to leave your team as quickly as they left the last one because they’re just chasing another “shiny object.”
Spamming doesn’t attract great recruits and that’s not how you want to build your business.
In FACT, if you get good at building online – meaning creating an endless stream of prospects and have your recruiting process dialed in – you won’t ever need to ask other networkers to join you. They will see what you have and WANT to JOIN YOU!
This is not about RECRUITING OTHER NETWORKERS, as much as it is about attracting other networkers and leaders to YOU!
Now, I can’t go into all the different types of ways to attract & recruit quality people in this article.
But that’s why I created my FREE 10-Day Online Recruiting Bootcamp.
Where first and foremost…
You’ll discover how to eliminate the biggest problems in network marketing
Which are how to:
- Attract people to you
- Create followers
- Build an email list
- Connect with people on Facebook
- Start conversations with dozens, if not hundreds, or even thousands of people every day
- How to follow-up with them in a leveraged way
In fact, I’ll share exactly how I passively generate 300–500 leads per day, 30–50 customers per day, and recruit 70–100 new serious business-builders into my business each month.
Then you’ll have the opportunity to learn more about how to actually convert people from a prospect to a new customer or a new distributor for your network marketing organization.
Again, your prospects’ biggest problem is a system that’s not working for them, so when you provide them a better solution, they’ll be thrilled ready to dump their inferior system to join you!
