|Recruiting The Right People
For Your Downline
First, you have to acknowledge that MLM is not for everyone. When your downline start dropping out, you feel the disappointment not only for yourself but for the other person. In your heart, you know they could have succeeded if they only just stuck with it. Network marketing business is all about a person attitude.
Another distributor drops out of your business!
You feel the disappointment not only for yourself but for the other person. You know they could succeed if they only just stuck with it. You may also feel guilty. Maybe you should have done more. Maybe you could have handled things better....offered more training, been more supportive.
You need to understand that it's not only discouraging but it can be destructive. Your business is all about your attitude. You need to protect your attitude at all costs because as some wise man once said "Your Attitude dictates your Altitude"
The old saying goes "You can lead the horse to water but you can't make them drink"
When I first started my business this used to happen to me all of the time. I couldn't understand what I was doing wrong. Was it me.....Maybe I wasn't cut out for this business. I started reading lots of books on MLM and found that most other successful distributors had experienced the same thing. Maybe it wasn't me that had the problem. I started looking at my team and others. One of the most insightful books I read was by Dr Tom Barrett "Dare to Dream Work to Win"
I discovered something that helped in my recruiting efforts.
Through analyzing successful distributors I was able to pin point a few common winning factors. There where a few obvious similarities.
I then looked at my distributors who hadn't made it. I didn't see the same attributes in those people. The answer was simple.
I needed to be more SELECTIVE in my recruiting.
This eliminated most of my heartaches, frustrations and minimized my wasted time.
Recruiting should always have a filtering system.
This system separates those people who are open to new ideas from those who are not. The people who have a good work ethic and those who don't. People who can communication well and those who can't.
Too often we have an open door policy.
"If you are breathing you're in".
What attributes do I look for in a Potential distributor?
Most people will not even come close, they simply drift through life. Why should it be any different in this business?
We just have to acknowledge that MLM is not for everyone.
I have devised steps that my potential distributors must make before signing them up. By the way it is also about positioning. I tell them I am selecting only 5 key people this month to join my team. They them feel as if they need to qualify.
I set them small homework tasks for them to complete
If they are in agreement at this stage I will let them join my team.
This new philosophy has saved me many sleepless night and helped me build a strong reliable team of business builders.
Check out who YOU are recruiting.
Their answer will reveal a lot about their chances of success in this type of business.
Don't let your Philosophy be "throw them up against the wall and see who sticks"
It really is a lot easier to build a business with people who have the right philosophy...and the right heart.
They share the same Vision as you and a like perspective about success in life.
If you recruit the right people, you don't have to keep re-building your downline over and over and over.
