You’re Making This Way
Are you having a really hard time presenting your
direct sales, network marketing, MLM products
and business to others? “But I’ve run out of
people to talk to.” or “I’m just not good at selling.”
I hear those objections all the time. The fact is
there are people everywhere you go both online
and offline. There is no shortage of people.

Marketing Strategies for Online
Business, Network Marketing, MLM
and Direct Sales
When you are out and about, start
chatting with people
• In the checkout line, ask them what they do, where do they work, do they
have children and so on.
• If you are at a restaurant, chat up your server if you are getting good
service. Let them know that they are the kind of person you are looking
for in your business and ask if you could set a time to talk to them outside
• Talk to receptionists and others when you are sitting in a waiting room.
• When online, build relationships, connect with people, get conversations
going and create curiosity about your business. Both online and offline all
you need to do is get a conversation started, ask permission to share
more, then let the tools do the rest.
As for not being good at selling, if you’re trying to sell your network marketing
products and services, you are working too hard.
You see, most network marketers
vomit all over people
They spew everything they know as fast as they can
because they’re afraid if they shut up they will be
rejected. The truth is, that’s the quickest way to make
people run the other way, ruining any chance you could
have had at piquing their interest.
Your network marketing company has
gone to a lot of time and expense to
create an array of tools that should do
the selling for you.
All you need to do is have the courage to approach people and ask permission to give them
one of these tools. My company provides me with all kinds of videos for both the products
and opportunity, testimonials, 3-way calls, weekly opportunity calls, a 24 hour hotline, Power
Point presentations, documents, social media posts and tweets, an autorepsonder and of
course my company website among many other things. I’m sure your company offers many
similar tools designed to help you succeed.
As Eric Worre says, it’s your job to get the next “exposure” to your business, then follow up
and set that next exposure. It’s not your job to be a heavy hitting salesperson, to vomit facts,
figures and ingredients all over them. It takes 4-6 exposures on average before people will
join your organization or become a product user. That’s where we go wrong. We think that if
they don’t sign up or buy after the first time or two, they never will. We give up too soon.
Make it easy on yourself and use those company tools as a reason to follow up and set up
the next exposure. It really is as simple as sharing your story and inviting someone to a
video, 3-way call or local event. Use your tools instead of your mouth. Talk less, share more
and you will see your stress levels go down and your income go up!
