    Hi Barrie,
    Good article.
    You do not want to sell people.
    what you do want to do is get to know them, see what they need and as you say – point them in the rights direction. Know Like Trust is the montra.
    I liked this “Have a list of conditions set up to make sure that the tasks you set are done and the prospect is committed to their own business instead of expecting the “magic” to happen without doing anything. Make it clear that if they fail to do the tasks, they will be out of the “elite” circle and someone else will be drafted in. ” Great article Barrie Happy Holidays Visiting you today from the PAC Rotator.

    Barrie,
    Very interesting. I created a very powerful 30 Day Love Challenge that many people have expressed interest in and several have purchased. However, many people somehow think the love will just fill their heart and transform their life with little to no effort on their part. When they realize there is a new lesson each day with a video and some questions, many of them stay with it for a few days and then get distracted and leave. I have done several challenges and I stay with it until the end, deriving the most that is possible from the course. Those who really want to achieve something, those who are really willing to do what it takes, WILL eventually succeed, because they will far surpass all those who dropped out along the way.
    Warmly,
    Dr. Erica

    Hi Barrie

    Very interesting post!

    We should first find out what people want and then offer our product. You are so right that if the want is there, we don’t need to convince anyone.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Happy new Year!

    Hi Barrie,

    I’ve been selling ‘stuff’ since I was 7 years old. I’ve been pretty good at it, for one FUNDAMENTAL reason: I don’t sell; I help people get what they want.

    And, as you’ve said in this post, if I can’t help them, I’ll point them to someone who can, or tell them I can’t.

    I realize your post is structured for people recruiting for a network marketing opportunity, but the sales/marketing principles are much the same…

    a good salesperson truly can convince almost anyone. But, a convinced person is rarely a committed person.

    The key is to get inside a prospect’s head and help them by continuing the conversation they’re already having inside their noggin!

    You’ve made much the same points in this post. Good job.
    Edward

    Hi Barrie,

    Thanks for the great post. I hate salesy pages and I vowed that i would never let my blog become like that. However, I believe I have gone too far the other way and hinder any sales that I might have had. I have to find that happy medium.

    Thanks for sharing.

      There needs to be a way to make sales / get leads etc Monna, but I agree with you about “salesy” pages.
