MLM Training Tips-How Social Media Slows the Business






Today's mlm training tip has to do with how social media can slow  our business down. I know this sounds strange, especially when we hear a lot about how some people are successfully using it to grow their business, but the truth is there is a good side and bad side to it.

Tom Schreiter puts it in great perspective. And as usual, he is right!

Hope you find this helpful.

To Your Success,
Monique

So how hard is it to talk to "live" people? by Tom Schreiter

Network marketing is person-to-person, talking to a "live" human being. So why do new network marketers make it so hard? 

They want to start with strangers, because they don't know what to say to people they know. Not sure if strangers will appreciate them not knowing what to say. 

So what do they do? 

They post on social media, and then spend weeks writing content for their blog. They set up a squeeze page that sends people to a landing page that uses an opt-in box to put them on an autoresponder sequence. Then, they send email messages until the person goes and watches a teaser video, and hopefully will leave their details to be contacted. 

And then, finally, the new networker can make that phone call to this low-quality lead and hope not to get rejected. 

I sat in the audience about 20 years ago when Michael Clouse said, "I go into Starbucks, sit down near the door, and start a 'live' conversation with a 'live' person." 

Michael bypassed all the filters, hoops, and social media, and just went and talked to a "live" person. Pretty neat. 

But people say, "Well, that person in Starbucks ... how do you know that person is interested?" 

Of course that person is interested. Almost everyone wants more money and a better life. That person is just as interested, just as qualified as the low-quality lead that put some information on a form. 

But isn't just talking to people "old school?" Yes. It is so much more efficient than spending weeks and months for a chance to talk to a lead. 

But isn't social media, having 5,000 Facebook friends that don't care, a modern way to do network marketing? Well, if delaying talking to prospects is modern, yes. 

"But I heard of someone who made a fortune just buying an Internet course and sending out emails!" Well, could be true. Ask yourself if you have the same skill set, the same relationship with a mailing list, etc. as that person. 

Now, I am not saying, "Don't use social media." What I am saying is that many new distributors hide behind computer screens, avoid talking to "live" people, and delay the start of their business. 

Our business is talking to "live" people, so we want to get on with it as soon as possible. And the cruel truth of all of this is: If we spend weeks or months to get a chance to talk to a "live" prospect, we still have to talk to that prospect. 

Quickly learn how to talk to prospects, and your business will grow faster. 

My next book describes a way to get pre-sold prospects to come to you, but like social media, it takes time. So what should you do first? 

Learn to talk to people. Here is the simple book I recommend. And yes, I am biased.

Network Marketing Tips-4 Free Must-Use Analytics Tools for Social-Media Marketers



Today's network marketing tips has to do with learning what social media tools you can use for free to grow your mlm business. There is a lot of value with being able to connect with folks online as well as building your brand. If you know how to effectively use today's social media such as Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, etc., your business will grow.

Here is short snippet of the article, "4 Free Must-Use Analytics Tools for Social-Media Marketers" by Drew Hendicks


Marketers in all industries are realizing the value of social media in reaching customers online. Through effective use of sites such as Facebook and Twitter, brands can earn word-of-mouth advertising as users recommend their products or services to their friends and family.
In a survey, 79 percent of companies said they are either currently using or plan to use social media, but many businesses are still uncertain of what to do with it.

Through the use of effective analytics tools, businesses can get a clear picture of how users are interacting with their posts to gain a better understanding of what works and what doesn’t. Here are a few popular social-media analytics tools that can help with your next campaign.

Google Social Analytics


The best place to start is with a tool you’re likely already using. Google Analytics has the ability to show you where your website stands, but a new social reporting feature allows you to add your social-media results to that, as well. Best of all, it’s free.
Google’s reporting on social media is limited, but it can tell you how many people are talking about your website on social media, as well as how many interacted with the Like, Share and Plus buttons you have on your site. It’s a valuable free addition to your social-media analytics toolbox.

To read about other tools recommended by Drew visit http://www.entrepreneur.com/article/239029

Hope you find this helpful.

To Your Success,
Monique

Network Marketing Prospecting Tips-How to Avoid Confusing Presentations and Hit Daily Targets



Today's prospecting tips has to do with learning to be more precise and speak with clarity when  speaking to prospects as well as the importance of having daily prospecting goals. 

In order for our business's to grow, we must learn the basic skills in these areas. If we do, we will end the year on a great note as well as have an excellent start to 2015.

One of my favorite mentors, Tom Schreiter, will now share how this all works. Remember to visit the business resources below, especially the free ebook, Success in 10 Steps by Michael Dlouhy which will save you years of failure and frustration as you look to create additional income from home.

To Your Success,
Monique Hawkins

Confusing presentations.
There are two times when a prospect is confused about a network marketing opportunity.
Before the presentation and after the presentation.
While we are talking about the wonderful company, the wonderful industry, the wonderful products, the wonderful training and the wonderful compensation plan, our prospect normally isn't listening. What is the prospect thinking?
"How long will this last?"
"Are you a salesman?"
"When are you going to get to the point?"
"How much is this going to cost?"
"How can I be sure I will be successful?"
So how can we overcome this problem?
Using a "One-Minute Presentation" or a "Two-Minute Story" or even better presentation techniques can help. We want to give the complete overview of the decision first. Why?
Ask yourself, "When do prospects actually make their decision?" And if we observe properly, the decision happens quickly - in the first few seconds. So that is why we should manage this time to our advantage.
What is the best way to improve our skills here? Simply record the first 60 seconds of your presentation and ask yourself, "How would I respond if someone told that to me?"
* * * * * * 
"If you aim at nothing then you will hit it with surprising accuracy every time."
So how did you start this morning? Did you have a clear focus on exactly what you wanted to accomplish today? For example:
* Start a relationship with one good prospect before noon.
* Eat lunch with your best prospect.
* Pass out five samples to five quality prospects.
* Have two new guests at tonight's opportunity meeting.
Or, did you avoid building your business and became a "manager?" For example:
* Checked your back office three times.
* Took pictures for a new brochure idea.
* Started yet another Facebook group for people to hide in, avoiding prospecting.
* Listened to an extra motivational CD.
* Checked your email inbox six times.
* Posted funny quotes at social networking sites.
Management mode is dangerous. Our building stops, our momentum stops, and our downline duplicates management mode.

Network Marketing Tips-How to Cope With Negative Relatives


Big Al book

Today's network marketing tip has to do with how to handle those negative relatives. Let's face it, we all have them. If we choose to listen to therm, they can put a real damper on our business.

However, it does not have to be this way if we learn the skills to be able to talk successfully with anyone, including the negative relatives.

Today's tip is from Tom Schreiter and he outlines nicely how to overcome this problem.  If you follow his advice, negative relatives can turn into potential customers or even reps.

Remember to also visit the business building resources below, especially the free ebook Success in 10 Steps which will save you years of failure and frustration.

To Your Success,
Monique Hawkins


Negative relatives. 
You have heard them say:

  • "You are just trying to make money off me!"
  • "It's too good to be true."
  • "These things don't work."
  • "Call me later, after you are rich."
  • "There is always a catch in these schemes."
  • "It's a pyramid."
  • "You have never been successful before, so why should I listen to you?"
Relatives can be so cruel. It is almost like they have been practicing negativity all their lives.

But what is really happening inside of their minds? Maybe this conversation is going on:

"Yes, of course I would like more money in my life. And yes, of course I think people want better health, better skin, better travel, better prices, etc. However ... I don't believe what you are telling me."

There is a skill that we must learn if we are to become successful in network marketing. That skill is how to get prospects to believe the good things we say. You see, we all say good things. That's the easy part. But getting others to believe and trust us is a bit harder.

Now, getting more good things to say won't fix that problem. Instead, we have to learn how prospects decide in their minds to trust and believe what they are told.

If this problem is slowing down your business, fix it fast. Of all my books, this is my favorite. Why? Because this book describes the first skill we need in any presentation: trust. 

Learn 13 different ways to get your prospects to believe you.
