One of the biggest problems in the network marketing industry seems to be the challenge in MLM recruiting. You might find that you may be struggling to build your downline and surprisingly, so is everyone else. Everyone has something to blame for the slow growth of their networks: the economy, being overshadowed by other industries, a change in people’s mindsets. However, what is surprising is that recruiting is simple. MLM recruiting isn’t all that hard if you know what approach to take, and the combination of the right things to do to bring success to network marketing recruiting.

Biggest Killers to MLM Recruiting

One of the biggest killers in MLM recruiting is people’s lack of belief that success can be found in such an industry. It is easy for people to believe that not much can come out of their efforts, as opposed to the great success that is on the other side of all that doubt. It also easy to absorb and go with the cynical and pessimistic comments of others around them (network marketing is a waste of time; it will take up all of your time; it is a scam and you’ll end up bugging your friends and family). However, if you are in the MLM industry, success truly starts by believing in yourself. The simple act of believing that you can build your downline is already a big help. If you start believing that you can reach success with your network marketing recruiting, then you can really achieve more than you can imagine.

MLM Recruiting Tip – People Follow YOUR Actions

MLM Recruiting

The next important thing to understand is that presentations are a big part of mlm recruiting. Whenever you present to your prospective downlines, make sure that you are in the presentation. It is not enough to just deliver it clearly; make sure you are the presentation. The trick to recruitment, and even internet lead generation, is that people really don’t follow what you say or show them. They follow you – who you are, what you do, what you can become. By showing them that they can achieve what you have also achieved, it will bring in better results for your recruiting.

Good MLM Recruiting Strategy

A good strategy is in MLM recruiting is to find out what those things which are important to your prospect, and make sure that you wrap your talk and presentation around it. Bring the business and the industry in as something that is valuable and can be relevant to the prospect’s life. Show them that being in the MLM Opportunity can bring significant changes to your life, and it is not simply a waste of time. Draw them in by telling them that it can work but only if it is right for them.

Remember, the trick to successful MLM recruiting is to believe and to make your prospects believe in the business’ power to succeed. With a little enthusiasm and sincerity, network marketing recruiting won’t seem too difficult and fruitless anymore. The only way to lead your prospect into trusting you is to deliver REAL VALUE.

I remember watching a video of John Carlton where he says that we need to literally go into bed with our ideal prospect and understand what they’re going through and based on that.. we plan our recruitment strategy. It’s so important.. especially today.. with so much noise out there in the market place..

Thanks Lawrence.. I’ve always admired the way you’ve been marketing online over the years. Kudos brother. 😉

thanks for the comment Gabriel. So many fail because they never give themselves a chance to succeed. Most of the failure I see it's a seed planted in their head when they started. If the self doubt is never addressed early on they will fail unless they hit the lottery.

This is a great post, Lawrence!

I completely agree with what you have to say here, because I see that the only ones in my organization that are struggling are the ones that have doubt.

If you believe it can be done, it can be.
