In the previous post, we discovered that MLM involes personal growth, increase, success, helping others, making a difference, wanting the BEST out of life, and being open to new ideas and cutting-edge thinking.
In reality, most people are no where near this. This is why it is a struggle sometimes to recruit the right people into our MLM business.
Doug Firbaugh, in his article "MLM Recruiting - Are You Recruiting The Wrong People into Network Marketing?" says the following:
"My friend Richard Brooke, (Mach II with Your Hair on Fire author and CEO of Oxyfresh) says that network marketing is simply Personal Development disguised as a business.
It all boils down to philosophy, and the question is: are you recruiting people that share that same philosophy, or people who really don't?
Last 5 People Your Recruited.
Look at the last five people you have recruited.
What have they done? Anything?
Are they working diligently?
Are they growing? Or are they stagnating, like a pond that has no fresh water in it?
Do they have a philosophy of working hard or hardly working?
Do they show up for everything or put down anything?
Do they give a good effort or a bad excuse?
You need to start looking for people who have the same focus, desires and philosophy as you:
People who have a focus on the future, not on the past.
People who have a focus of increase, not decrease.
People who have a desire to grow, not to gripe.
People who have a desire to change, not to stagnate.
People who really care, not try to con.
People who have the philosophy of Win/Win, not When?/When? (CLUE!)
Check out who you are recruiting and ask them one question:
"What is your philosophy about success?"
Their answer will reveal a lot about their chances in this mlm business.
Oh I know, the "throw it up against the wall and see who sticks" crowd will not give a hoot about this article! But it really is a whole lot easier to build a business with folks with the right philosophy, and the right heart. (CLUE!)
Why do you think the attrition and drop out rate for downlines is so high industry-wide?
It just makes sense to have a "Vision Match" with your new mlm recruit. They share the same Vision as you and a like perspective about success in life.
If you recruit those kinds of folks, you don't have to keep re-building your downline over and over and over.
Are you recruiting the wrong people in MLM? Start looking for the people that want to move ahead and get on in life, and recruit those into Network Marketing.
It will change your whole world, and especially your MLM recruiting".
Great advice, itsn't it? Use it and you will be much more successful recruiting the right people in your MLM.
