MLM Business Lead-More Big Al Tips to Build Your MLM Opp Big!

If you have been following my blog for awhile, you know how much I enjoy talking about Tom, Big Al, Schreiter and his tips on how to talk to a mlm business lead. Plus,he has great tips on other skills you need to have to successfully build a mlm home based business opportunity.

So, in today's post, I will be sharing with you more Big Al awesome tips!

The elevator to "success" is closed. But, the stairs are always open.

I heard this from Hilde Saele as she addressed a session on this year's MLM Cruise.

Think about it.

Distributors want the ad that sends them to a website where prospects automatically join.

Distributors are too lazy to get their own leads, so they pay someone else to get the leads for them.

Distributors refuse to learn the magic words and skills and just hope the sponsor gives them some good new recruits to work with.
I love that saying and I'm going to use it on some effort-challenged people I know.

Cool things to say . . .

Jean Phi of Belgium writes me often and we exchange ideas and marketing tips. Here are two of his sequences that you will enjoy:

"What kind of concerns and challenges are you ready to face to live the life of your dreams?"

"Would you learn some new skills if your boss asks you, in exchange for an annual raise of 5000 Euros?"

Words I prefer not to use.

Financial freedom. (Means that an insurance agent is approaching.)

Time freedom. (Prospect thinks about science fiction time tricks.)

Residual income. ("Residual" means leftover stuff that nobody wants.)

Instant communication.

You can use this skill everywhere, for the rest of your life.

Learn how to get your message inside the mind of your prospects, so they actually believe the good things that you say. This is fun! Just go to:

MLM Business Lead-How to Explode Your MLM Business Lead Base

As a network marketer, you know how important it is to drive traffic to your website. As a matter of fact, your very survival depends on it. If you want to have a great list of mlm business lead, this is a must!

There is an often over-looked area of marketing that is ignored by many in network marketing. This area is offline marketing. While the Internet is a source used by many, there are also thousands of prospects that can be presented with your MLM business opportunity through offline sources. Here are eight offline strategies that you can use to expand your network marketing prospects and mlm business lead list, and, in turn, explode your business.

1. Use a small zip close bag and include, for example, the following in it:

a business card
a business opportunity flyer or mini flyer
a discount coupon
a mini flyer of current special

Hand out the baggies to bank tellers, retail cashiers, at your kids sport events, etc. In other words, everywhere you go! This is a quick and easy way to let folks know what you are about.

2. Print flyers with your contact information, your website address, and email address, along with any current specials you are offering. Then, contact mobile home park offices, apartment complex rental offices, housing developments, etc., and ask for permission to leave flyers in their office or hang on tenant doors. You would also give the office employees a free gift or discount on your product or service.

4. Contact your local bridal supply stores, bridal gown stores, caterers, tux rental centers, wedding DJ's, etc. When contacting them, ask if you can leave your business card with them as a flyer for their customers to pick up.

5. Don't overlook daycare centers! They are excellent places to contact and leave business cards and/or flyers. Make sure that for whatever company you represent, you find items that cater specifically to children or moms. Make sure your flyer clearly shows this.

6. Contact your local churches. A lot of churches hold spring and fall festivals, Christmas bazaars, plan special events around Thanksgiving, etc. Contact them about getting a table or booth. This is a very inexpensive way (generally less than $15 a table) to promote your network marketing business.

7. Connect with your local Chamber of Commerce. Many times they hold local business events that you can participate in.

8. Do you have a college in your town? If so, great! College students are always looking to lose weight, spend money, and for more ways to generate extra income. Remember, how broke you were in college? So, students are also great prospects for your MLM business opportunity.

As you can see, this is just a small list of endless strategies that you can use to market your business offline as well as build a great mlm business lead list. Try one or more of these strategies to start off with, and watch your network marketing business explode!

MLM Business Leads-Three Tips on How to Talk To Prospects

One person I like to look to for skill training to use when I talk to mlm business leads is Tom, Big Al, Schreiter.

Big Al has been mentoring thousands for years and the skills he teaches are easy to use and very practical. There's nothing fancy with his techniques!

So, today's posts will cover some awesome Big Al strategies to use when you are talking to your mlm business leads.

How to make your presentations rejection-free.

Be polite. It is just that easy.

When prospects acknowledge that they have a problem that your products or opportunity can fix, before you launch into your presentation, ask this question first:

"Would you like to do something about it?"

This gives the prospects a chance to decline a sales presentation, when they have no intention of fixing their problem, or don't believe that you can fix it.

And it's just good manners.

We all hate it when we are subjected to a sales presentation when we don't want to hear one.

On the positive side, if your prospects say that they want to do something about their problem, it is so easy.

Just make a simple presentation and let your prospects buy or join.

Skill #23: How to get your prospects to say "YES" immediately: the magic sequences of words.

Many subscribers have attended this three-hour workshop and asked for more of the basic sequences that get prospects to listen and accept the good things we say.

We don't want to waste our life's breath on prospects who aren't listening.

So here are two more easy-to-use sequences that you can use when dealing with the "decision-making" part of the brain:

1. "I'm curious if you would keep an open mind to . . ."

2. "Well, you know how . . ."

You already know where and how to plug in these sequences from the workshop you attended. So use and enjoy!

People will not do what you tell them to do, only what you show them to do.
The complete library of Big Al skills is at:

What to say next.

After you have finished your "One-Minute Presentation" or any presentation, what are you going to say next if your prospect is not ready to make a decision?

You don't want your prospect to say, "I want to think it over."

You don't want silence while you and the prospect stare at each other.

So what can you say next to keep your presentation moving towards a decision?

Try this:

"So what would you like to know next?"

This forces the prospect to tell you which issues or questions are still in his mind. And by answering your prospect's question on what he wants to know next, you are moving closer to a decision.

This method puts the prospect in control of the flow of information and relaxes the tension of the presentation. Give it a try. Your prospect will love it too.
