In a recent "Big Al Report", Tom was discussing how to recruit university students. Of course, as with any other MLM prospect, you have to use the right words when talking to them. In other words, have skills so you know what to say to grab their attention.
So, if you would like some excited and passionate young people on your team, here are a couple of ideas, otherwise knows as "ice breakers" you can use with them.
How to recruit university students by Tom Schreiter
I did a workshop recently, and the average age of the leaders was ... old. I asked them,
"So what did you say to keep all the young people away from your business?"
Well, they told me their "Ice Breakers" - how they started the conversation with young prospects. They said things like:
* "Would you like to retire 5 years early?" (Oh, that's hot. That's like the year 2055, just what all the 20-year-olds are thinking about every morning.)
* "How is your Plan B coming along?" (They don't even have a Plan A yet.)
Well, with these types of "Ice Breakers," no wonder young people would avoid their business. It is what we say that makes the difference. We need to learn the formulas and how to construct better "Ice Breakers" so that prospects will beg us for presentations.
If we use these pathetic openings to our conversation, then the reply from the university student might be:
"No. No. No. I don't want to hear it. I'm $100,000 in debt, but I got a "B" in French literature."
Not a prospect.
So what could they have said that would be more interesting to university students?
How about something like this:
==> "Would it be okay if you didn't have to work 45 years like your parents?"
What do you think their instant reply would be?
And now the presentation can begin.
