This business is not for everyone, but everyone knows someone who it is for.
Ask. And it really depends on how you ask, that determines response.' Obviously this isn't for you, but if you were me, who would be first 2 people you would call to share this with? And then call them. "Hello Mary? My name is Doug, and I promised Tom I would give you a call to share an idea he thought you would enjoy.'
7) 'Business owners you know or someone else knows them.'
Business owners, especially small business owners are always looking for ways to increase value to their employees, and to increase bottom line to their company. A lot of business owners have found Network Marketing to be a great secondary profit center for their business. And they all have associations they belong to with other business owners. A good way to prospect them is to ask for their advice on Marketing and their help. Don't forget Goldmine on their desk.
8)'Stay at Home moms.'
One of fastest growing sectors in MLM is stay at home mom. Many women professionals are starting to leave their jobs and careers to spend time with their family. Values seem to be changing, and with that comes a great opportunity to help them reclaim income they lost and they already have proven themselves in workforce.
And over 70% of all networkers - are women.
9) 'Chamber of Commerce.'
Every city has a Chamber and most are all business minded which means a goldmine for sales and referrals, and even some distributors. Join your chamber or at least attend some functions and get a listing of members.
And here is an INFERNO Secret to recruit: Establish a relationship and ask for their help, and refer business to them.
10) 'Civic/Charitable organizations.'
Join a Civic group to first make a difference in your city, not just to network. And become known as a go getter and helper, and as you do these things, ask for people's referrals. And maybe a time you could let them try your products. But understand - FIRST make a difference in group, and then you will have a better chance of making a difference with them with your business.
Become a Master Networker. Get a book/tape on Networking and how to do it. The secret is not who you know - but WHO KNOWS YOU.
Networking is an art. And if you Master it, you will never run out of leads or folks who want to help you.
Networking is about bringing value to others First - then let them bring value to you.
