In the last few years it’s been more evident that marketing is changing. Network marketing has had a bad reputation, mainly because of the publicity rather than it being a bad business model. There is a difference of opinion that is changing things that leads to the question what is attraction and why are marketers working more with attraction in mind?
The most important thing to be seen as a master recruiter is that you are authentic. Be true to yourself and show yourself to be attractive to a prospect by indicating your desire to help THEM to be successful. Be real and avoid hyping up things to get the sign up “at all costs”. Money is a part of business, but it shouldn’t be evident that it’s the most important thing when you are recruiting into your business. Remember it’s all about the prospect FIRST!
Yes I know, I do keep on about giving value and being generous with your time, but you mustn’t forget that you’re in business. Your time is valuable and there comes a point where people who follow you have to acknowledge that. The time I’m talking about is the time for personal consultations. People must realize that there is a price for your valuable time to help them to get success with a particular area that you’re an expert in. You don’t expect a solicitor to “give away” time when you want them to look after your legal stuff do you? There’s no difference with your time and expertise either!
In these days of internet marketing, there is so much free stuff and giveaways around we don’t know where to look next. There are so many items of value and yet there are some that are not of the same value because they are designed to get a person’s details only. The more value is offered, the more generosity is given.
When writing a blog post, you should take every advantage to get a link to your capture page or offer. One thing that a lot of people forget is the link from the post images on their blog. This is a key pointer to creating another means of linking to your capture page because otherwise the click on the image will only send your visitor to a larger version of the image.
Everybody has different thoughts on attitude, and the way you actually think can change your attitude. I have been aware of a change in some people’s attitude when they are told a story that triggers and imaginary and emotional response from them based on what they are told. There are many people who have negative thoughts about very positive things and also people who have an imagination based thought process that put them off things. These attitudes generally have a detrimental effect on the outcome that should be accepted based on truth rather than assumption. Is everything as bad as we make it out to be?
I hear people who are so used to NOT doing things they make excuses as to why they have failed to do what they set out to do. I’m not just talking about people in general; I also talk about myself as well! It’s all too easy to set out to do things and yet when there is a small obstacle, there is an excuse to not do it rather than work through the obstacle and get the job done.
Recently I was introduced to a book that is 3 years old, but the message is unique and has a powerful “reverse psychology” about how to develop more “yes” responses for your prospecting and/or sales messages. The concept is simple and yet controversial compared to anything you may have been taught, which is to “go for no”.
There are things that I regret and things I know I shouldn’t have done. Yes, it’s important to learn from the mistakes in business, but now I have made a decision, I know where I went wrong and I understand why it’s vital I don’t look back. I have made my choice of marketing method and now I am focused and determined to make it work!
With so many accusations of spamming and the bad reputations that are given because of this, the right training is absolutely vital these days. I believe that we all need the right training to do the right thing instead of being given the go speak to your friends and family etc etc. I know we are given guidelines on how to approach people, but why is it that so many people end up NOT doing the right thing?
