So What Are These 3 FLAWED Concepts That Are STILL Taught By MLM Leaders?
Before we get started this isn’t a blog to say this stuff NEVER worked, some of these ideas and concepts certainly did work.
The internet has plenty of success stories to prove this, HOWEVER just because it works doesn’t mean it’s the most efficient now in today’s market.
A little bit like you could still listen to music via a cassette player and it works…..But is it really better than downloading music direct onto your phone or pod?
This isn’t just a blog to moan and complain ….about stuff without no alternatives by the way, i will also be sharing what i believe is a MUCH more effective way to work. (You are welcome to have your own views in the comments below).
1- Write A List Of EVERYBODY You Know
Guarantee you’ve heard this one right? I mean the actual idea of it makes sense, more people, more people to ask and reach out to …more customers?
In a perfect world … Yes
Heres the issue, most the people on your list WILL NOT bet suitable for what it is that you are offering. Meaning that you are going to spend a large percentage of your time speaking and talking to people that will either waste your time or make you feel like s**t about your business.
When you first come into the business you haven’t yet got that “rhino skin” you need to put up with negativity and rejection (unless you are from a sales background).. It hurts…It sucks.
Something that would be WAY more effective (and less painful). Would be to sit down with your new starter and create a list of people WITH the strong attributes you need to be a successful Network Marketer. Then tackle them together, you as the up line helping your down line to do their first few calls and presentations.
Why is this more effective?
-Your downline has MORE chance of making a sale, if they get a sale as soon as possible this can sky rocket confidence.
– You are actually SHOWING them what to do, not just feeding them to the lions with a list of a 1000 people. They will feel more comfortable and at ease about doing the numbers later on if they have that support.
2- All You Have To Do Is Use The Product And Share It!
Funnily enough this did actually work in the very early days of starting my first MLM company. However that was in a totally different market than it is now.
The popularity of Network Marketing has skyrocketed these past few years meaning more and more people are turning to social media to “flog their stuff”.
MOST people not all will just assume the only reason you think it is fantastic is…because you are selling it!!
Facebook is littered with “my product is the best ever” or “hey look at me using this wonder juice i love it” … The market is bored of the beaming fake smiles holding a product.
EDUCATE, become a source of knowledge rather than someone who is just spamming the hell out of Facebook.
Look at the bigger picture and play the long term game, sure spam works.. Yes i said it..SPAM WORKS
But only for a short period of time. If you want to be CONSISTENTLY earning for years to come a stable income you need to think bigger than just sales.
Its about creating an attractive brand and a following of people that follow you for what you provide.
For example if you are in health & wellness rather than posting selfie after selfie saying how amazing your wonder juice is for your digestive system…
Educate people on WHY digestive health is important, go live on Facebook to discuss various tips and health benefits..WITHOUT pitching the product.
If people interact then you can reach out to them and potentially offer them a solution. At least now they respect and trust you way more than the others still spamming.

3) The Power of 5!!! MLM IS EASY!
Going to save the best till last.. i HATE this concept and sentence. It makes my skin crawl.
All you have to do is, find 5 people and then help them to find their 5 people and you have made it!!
I mean it’s true, just like if i wanted to instigate world peace all i need to do is to get everyone in a room and agree to get along…
Some things are just easier said than done, in a perfect world ideas like this work.. But Encase you didn’t notice this isn’t a perfect world and not everything is straight forward.
To get your 5 isnt as simple as just speaking to 5 people. To be honest you may even need to speak to 50-100 people. Most people don’t even recruit 5 people in 5 months, sad but true.
Sure you could argue the face some work harder than others and i totally agree, the issue is here is making this sound EASY.
MLM is far from easy its hardwork and at times mentally draining, finding your 5 will be tough nevermind the real challenge of helping your team to find 5 before they quit.
Duplication is challenging, its not about what works its about what duplicates, so even if you did find your 5 you still face the HUGE task of getting your 5 to find 5.
Be HONEST, prepare people for the rejection and handwork that comes with Network Marketing. Set expectations early so they are not shocked when they get the knock backs.
Think of how a boxer prepares for a fight, they do hours and hours of sparring. Partly it’s for improving skills but a large part of it is to get them used to being hit!
So they don’t flinch
They don’t stop in there tracks and they adopt the habit of moving forward even if they get a good right hook to the face.
Good thing is, people don’t punch you in this game but the analogy is certainly relevant.
