Think about your business and your future. What do you see? Imagine having an online marketing empire, where prospects are lining up, credit cards in hand, to buy your product and join your business. It looks amazing, doesn’t it? And it can become a reality with power prospecting!
We’ve got good news for you! It’s never been easier to start building your home business empire using social media. But we also have some bad news. When you first get started, you may struggle for a few months or even years. But don’t get discouraged! Bring that vision of your future back, and stick to it.
Today, we’ll share with you 7 power prospecting secrets which will change the way you do your business.
Power Prospecting Plan for Modern Network Marketers
Secret #1: Have A Long-Term Vision
Eric Worre says, “You are punished or rewarded for the life you lived before network marketing.” He was right on the money with that one! There will ups and downs (as with any business), so keep your focus and vision.
Everybody wants to be successful but nobody wants to pay the price. So if you have a long-term vision of where you want to go, keep going at it, and we promise you — it will pay off!
Secret #2: Build An Audience
Do you know how many people in network marketing don’t know anything about marketing? It’s fascinating! Don’t be one of them — be the exception.
That’s what worked for us. Several years ago, we took to social media because we were tired of chasing people around, talking to the same leads, and dealing with skeptics. We wanted to grow our audience, so we decided to have an abundance mentality. And that meant we had to get creative.
Our logic is that first you have to build your audience, and then generate leads inside that audience. Does that make sense?
Secret #3: Deploy Hybrid Building
You use both online and offline approaches, and boom — you’re become a Power Prospecting Master!
How it works is that you use the interwebs to build a brand so that people can get to know you. Then hop on a Skype or phone call with them, or even take them out for coffee. You might feel uncomfortable but if you want to succeed, you need to push yourself.
We see a lot of online marketers that are using the internet to market, but they’re not having day-to-day communication on the back end. They’re hiding behind their keyboard. But that doesn’t work. If you’re only prospecting and you’re not marketing, it’s like you are planting seeds but you’re not watering them.
Secret #4: Build Trust
We can’t emphasize this enough! Even if you manage to build an audience, you won’t be able to capitalize on it or grow it further, unless people trust you. And that takes time and consistency.
Think of it as a relationship. If you want to make it work, you need to show up day in and day out, you need to provide value, and you need to inspire people. You have to put in the work — there are no easy fixes.
Add this equation into your method of operation: Expose, Involve, Upgrade.
Expose people to your brand, involve them in your content, and eventually, they’ll want to upgrade with you (a.k.a. buy from you or join your business). Simple, right?
Secret #5: Plug People Into a Success System
When all is said and done, you want to plug your prospects into a SYSTEM. And that stands for Save YourSelf Time Energy & Money. And who doesn’t want to do that?
So get your prospects to join your Facebook community, get them on a conference call or a weekly meeting. Simply get them involved with your system!
Marketing, prospecting and personal development are important but you can’t expect to have massive results if you don’t have a duplicatable system which you can plug your prospects in.
Secret #6: Use These Three Brilliant Tools
Do you think that network marketing is built on strangers recruiting strangers? It’s not. It’s all about people recruiting other people who they’ve had previous interaction with. Those people are your warm market. And how do you get to them? Use these simple, but every effective, tools:
- Facebook Messenger App
- Facebook Audio Recorder
- Facebook Live Videos
Yes, the fastest way to create a warm market is to go live, and deliver consistent videos. That way people will feel like they know you, and they will trust you much faster.
Are you nervous about making videos? Catch this: You’ll be bad before you’re good, good before you’re great and great before you’re exceptional. So stop it with your perfection-itis and just get started!
Secret #7: Stop pitching. Start listening.
Imagine that you meet a very nice person, and you want to ask them out. But after talking to them for a while, you find out that they’re happily married. You can still ask them to dinner, but do you think it will be successful? No. And you couldn’t have known this, unless you had had that conversation with them.
The very same thing is valid for prospecting. You have to talk to people, and you have to listen!
Unfortunately, there’s no script for that. It takes practice and it takes you getting out of your head, and being present. You need to come down to Earth and listen.
Bonus Advice: Master Live Videos!
We know you’ve said this before, but it’s so very important! Videos are the future.
It’s not about perfection but about perfecting your craft. If you want to get paid top dollar for what you do, you have to become the best of the best. And if you want people to hop on your broadcast and share everything you say, you have to iron out your art.
So get out of your comfort zone, and even if you’re already doing live videos, find ways to improve yourself every single day!
