The Joys of Repeated Failure, especially in Network Marketing

For most of us, “failure” has a tragic and undeserved reputation as something bad and painful. It’s very unfair, and it holds us back and limits our success. If “failure” had an attorney, it would have an excellent chance of winning a lawsuit for defamation and slander.  :-)

Too often, we view failure as reflecting on the person who “failed”. We view them (or ourselves) as having poor judgment, poor skills, or lack of character! How absurd!

There are only a handful of ways to “fail”, and I don’t view any of them as bad.

First, you can “fail” by losing a competition. I remember talking to a high school athlete who defined himself as “slow” because he lost a race to the state’s fastest sprinter. I also remember a beautiful and talented woman who defined herself as “ugly” because in college she finished fourth in a beauty pageant.  How, exactly, are those examples of “failure”?

Are you beating yourself up when you don’t win your MLM Companies product retailing contest?  Or when there are bonuses for new sponsoring activities?  Why? Read the rest of this entry »

Getting MLM Sales requires Asking the Right Questions…

…because Wrong Questions get the Wrong Answers. 

The most important aspect of making a sale — is also a major weakness of every MLM’er I’ve ever met. Asking questions.

It’s absolutely puzzling to me. Questions are so critical, you’d think it would be the topic of MLM training every week. Yet most networkers have never taken one training program in the science of asking a question.

How critical? The first personal (rapport) question sets the tone for the meeting, and the first business question sets the tone for the sale. That’s critical.

Benefits of asking the right question? Good question.

Here are 10 benefits to make MLM sales by:

  1. Qualify the buyer.
  2. Establish rapport.
  3. Create prospect disparity.
  4. Eliminate or differentiate from the competition.
  5. Build credibility.
  6. Know the customer and her business.
  7. Identify needs.
  8. Find hot buttons.
  9. Get personal information.
  10. Close the sale.

All these answers come from asking the right questions.  I call them Power Questions. Read the rest of this entry »
