How the timing must be right in network marketing

A few years ago, I spoke to a guy called Adam, who I know through soccer, about being a distributor with my network marketing company.

It wasn’t for him, he didn’t quite see it.

It’s not an issue, it doesn’t have to affect our relationship. We catch up from time to time. Then, last week, my friend Chris, a distributor who I have the pleasure to work with, told him how he was involved in our network marketing business so that he doesn’t have to work 50 hours a week and how he doesn’t want to miss his son Lewis’s first day at school, and how our business was going to help him with that. That got his attention better than whatever I must have said to him did, and the timing was now right for him.

So Adam signed up as a distributor. He had never heard of network marketing nor our business (from anyone other had me or Chris).

Well done Chris!

Four lessons:
1) a no is just a no-for-now providing you don’t offend people when they say no;
2) never underestimate the power of your story….I will say that again – never underestimate the power of your story;
3) you don’t have to be a ‘big shot’ to get people signed up. It was Chris, not me, who got Adam to look seriously. You just have to speak with enthusiasm, and actually speak;
4) don’t transfix on one single prospect – I’ve built a good business in the time between Adam saying no and now saying yes!
