Note: this was posted on the wrong blog. I have a blog focused just on repeat customers, and meant to post it there. Since we have gotten a comment already, I’ll leave it here.
Shelagh comments this to the post: “Networkers, quick: What’s a customer?”
“Many of our customers are Distributors who think/say they are building a business, but haven’t enrolled anyone yet!”
I wonder how many of them discovered doing the business wasn’t something they enjoyed, and now they say they’re building a business, just to pacify their upline?
We all want everyone to build, it’s true. And most everyone is taught to hit on their customers, hard, to enroll others.
But only 1 in 100 will really consider sales, which NM is. And when people discover they don’t like doing it, they stop. It’s hard to force someone to do what they don’t enjoy.
So maybe we can be grateful that they are at least staying on as customers?
Perhaps they’d be more interested in bringing in another customer, instead of enrolling more distributors?
Or perhaps they know someone who really does love sales?
