Social Media Prospecting & Recruiting Guide + Scripts

Several years ago, when we decided to take our business online, we knew nothing about digital marketing. Once we started learning, we realized — a lot of the strategies wouldn’t work in the network marketing industry. Not because they’re not effective, but because they’re not duplicatable.

You can find our Social Media Prospecting and Recruiting secrets inside this guide.
