Some of the basic marketing methods in network marketing are hanging fliers, bugging your family and friends, holding hotel meetings and anyone within 3 feet to you is your prospect (the good old 3 foot rule) - the problem with these methods is the fact that it doesn't seem to turn out exactly as it was presented to you during the sales meeting. So I ask you, are you tired of the old school network marketing techniques? You see, if you've done half or a third of the old school marketing teachings, I'm sure you must have had your own share of the frustration I will be sharing in this article, and if you've not experienced it, then you might want to pay more attention to this article because the experience is not pretty. I know that when I joined my first network marketing company, I was told to use these same techniques.
I was told to make a list of 100 people that I knew and basically call every one of them to ask and see if they would be interested in making some extra money. The result was far from favorable; in fact 90 percent of the people I spoke with were offended while the remaining politely turned me down. Sometimes when I look back at the things I have done based on wrong teachings by my up-lines, it makes me to be ashamed of myself for ever taken those actions - I was faced with questions I wasn't able to answer, getting hung up on, and faced with nothing but rejection. I even solicited total strangers in the mall and brought up my opportunity in a social gathering - which I later realized, was a No-No.
The worst thing is that all my effort created enmity between me and my friends, plus it brought a whole lot of negative connotation instead of prospects. To make matters worst, my up-line told me to go and buy some opportunity leads which did not just cost me money and effort, but it brought me back to ground zero - more rejection, no money and no prospect. At this point, I was out of money, and had nothing to show for it! Then, just as I was going to give up, I found what I consider to be the "life saver" for my business. I discover the 3 most important lessons that helped to change my situation and I know it may help to save your life too. You need to pay attention here. 3 most import network marketing training that will help to get you started on a right foot: Lesson #1 - Contrary to what you've been told, you must realize that not everyone is looking to run their own business - some people are just satisfied doing their JOB and are not interested in your opportunity.
Lesson #2 - Not everyone is your prospect even if they may want to have their own business one day. You don't want to talk to anyone who doesn't want to talk to you or at least have shown interest in what you do. Lesson #3 - You have to concentrate on getting the maximum returns possible for your time and effort. To achieve this, you need to discover how you can become the hunted instead of the hunter and you're able to attract an endless stream of new distributors and customers to you. Once you are able to do this, you will say goodbye to chasing people down to join your business and actually make money from all the people who say "no" to your opportunity.
