Walter wrote me this the other day.
“I received real-time lead today that wanted to earn money from home, but, in his note, said, ‘. . . and if this is MLM I will not be interested.'”
Walter did call the guy, they had a friendly discussion, and the guy passed. I asked Walter if he had asked they gent why he had emailed, “…if this is MLM I will not be interested.”
Walter emailed me back:
“He wanted to do something where you ‘actually sell products to customers, rather than just building an organization.'”
I guess the word on the street is that MLMers just recruit and try to “build an organization.”
Some of you readers know better. But this is part of what you’re up against: people who say no to MLM because of that very common perception, brought on by the many loud recruiters, that the money’s in the recruiting – and that “there’s no money in customers.”
Worse, how many of your upline are like that of a gal I know, Nessa?
Nessa told me recently that she started building a customer base, and her upline, who has access to her customer info, called them all to tell them how much they could earn if they’d only sell the products. Nessa lost all but one of her customers (21).
How can we help the one-track recruiters get the concept that most people do NOT want to sell? No matter how big the money promises are? And to LEAVE CUSTOMERS ALONE?
If they want to sell, they’ll ask. They bought from you, didn’t they? Trust them to put two and two together.
