For years now network marketing companies pretty much tell you the same story of how you start your network marketing business. You know, everyone knows 200 people, right? So write down your list and go prospect them. How has that worked for you?
This method of recruiting really does not work that well for most people. You tend to end up with prospects getting buyers remorse or they don’t work the business. Either way that is not a successful approach for you. Unfortunately, 95% of those who start a home based business fail and the primary reason is they didn’t acquire the knowledge and skills necessary for today’s marketplace.
So what’s the answer? You can use the sledgehammer approach and call enough prospects that you get people joining you or you can turn it around the other way and attract people to you and market YOU, after all there is only one of YOU.
In order to generate attraction you want to show that you are offering value and that you demonstrate leadership. If you don’t show you are a leader and offer more value than your prospect then they will not be attracted to you won’t join you. When you are doing face-to-face meeting the Physical Signs of Attraction are a huge piece of building the relationship.
