You want to know if your prospect is resistant torepparttar MLM business model at this point so that you can stop investing time in trying to recruit someone who does not want to be recruited. This is a major problem area for most inexperienced network marketers.

Your next step is to pre-qualify your prospect by requiring some sort of action onrepparttar 150927 part ofrepparttar 150928 prospect.

Maybe they have to fill in a form on-line, or complete a short questionnaire. If your prospect completesrepparttar 150929 required action, after they have been educated, that will tell you that your prospect understands that your business is MLM and they are accepting ofrepparttar 150930 concept and they are likely open to exploring your offerings further…otherwise they would not have completedrepparttar 150931 process.

The reason this is so important is because by giving your prospect a task to complete, you are pre-qualifying their level of commitment to solving their discontent, and you are giving them an easy way out in that if they decide that they are not interested in following through any further, they simply wont completerepparttar 150932 task.

This removesrepparttar 150933 rejection factor completely fromrepparttar 150934 equation, and allows you to invest your time only with those prospects who have demonstrated a sincere interest by completingrepparttar 150935 tasks requested of them.
