WHY ISN'T ANYONE JOINING MY BUSINESS?
How tough is it to sell someone Financial Independence and a lifestyle of freedom?
Did you ever watch a movie that was absolutely horrible and as you were leaving the theater you thought to yourself:
“well, that's two hours of my life and 20 bucks I'll never get back!”?
Now try this:
Multiply that feeling by over 1000 times the next time you're talking to someone who has tried network marketing and failed for no fault of their own and you will begin to understand why most are not receptive to your AWESOME FINANCIAL OPPORTUNITY!
It may take a while for your new recruits to realize the truth but most rational people will eventually catch on.
Be brutally honest with yourself:
How many people can you afford (emotionally, spiritually, and financially) to treat like commodities? In other words, what is your moral threshold of the amount of human suffering that you are willing to inflict upon others in order to build your empire?
Mine is ZERO!
The number of people who have been burned by this industry is staggering.
Do you know why you went and paid to see that over-hyped movie in the first place? It's because the trailer, which is only a minute long has all the best clips crammed together.
That is pretty much what network marketing has become in most “opportunities”, a trailer for a horrible movie with only the best generic parts being promoted.
The short presentation you give does not live up to the rosy picture we sometimes paint of the “promise of residual income” that is theoretically possible in every company but truthfully rarely delivered because the products are overpriced and will not appeal to the masses without a pay plan attached to them.
The company doesn't survive more than a few years. You can't collect bonus checks from a failed MLM.
We also many times neglect to inform our prospects of the challenges and obstacles they will face in this type of business before they give us their credit card. That is one of the first things I tell folks. I'm telling you here aren't I?
Do you find yourself sitting in bad “movie” right now but you feel like,
“I hope this will get better because I paid $3000 to get in and my sponsor keeps telling me, “the end is so phenomenal you will be really sorry if you leave before it's over.” ”
I will say this without any hesitation or apology:
You can't beat the sobering statistics unless you know what to look for.
Over 95% of all MLM companies are not even in business after 5 years. You had better at least be in one that will survive that enormous hurdle.
The other key issue is a failure to compete for market share. Which usually is a major factor in it's ultimate demise!
My prediction, (mark it down) most of the exclusively CBD oil MLM companies will be out of business by 2022)
If you don't have a product or service that you can offer to non distributors at a fair market value then you will be on an endless cycle of constantly replacing reps.
I have said this before:If we don't start policing ourselves about how we behave there won't be a network marketing industry of any consequence in the very near future.
But there will still be “expert trainers”and “gurus” (99% of whom are not building a downline, who are therefore hypocrites) fleecing the dwindling population of die hard distributors who refuse to give up.
It's time to get real.
Have you ever heard the phrase:
He can sell ice to Eskimos?
Who does selling ice to Eskimos serve?
The salesman, who can successfully manipulate the Eskimo?
The Eskimo who already has an abundant ice source?
I say that neither one is served, even though the salesman makes a commission, in the long run, what good is his reputation going to be among the Eskimos?
What type of person do you want to be in this industry?
One with a lot of Angry Eskimos to whom you sold overpriced ice? Or a servant/leader with something that will actually provide value to the consumer market that you are going to penetrate with a team of motivated individuals?
What would be the net result if we told the whole story? That this business is not only obscenely rewarding, but also one of the most challenging things one can do to live a life of freedom and purpose?
I believe we may make fewer quick start commissions in the short run because we won't focus on recruiting solely for our benefit the priority but rather serve people's genuine need and in the process sponsor more quality distributors and retain a higher percentage of working builders on our teams. Then even if people quit they won't do it with a bad taste in their mouth or an axe to grind. We will start to repair the damage that many have created.
This runs counter to the philosophy of far too many trainers in this industry because virtually everywhere I see ads appealing to how their methods are proven and easy.
That's the kind of garbage hype based marketing that is severely damaging the overall reputation of this brilliant business model that is being abused due to a lack of oversight and common sense.
If anything I have said resonates with you, then simply send me a connection request and let's have a genuinely honest dialogue about what we may share in vision and values. Who knows what good things it may lead to?
