Old MLM Prospecting and Marketing Techniques?
I like to read and analyze business opportunities and I have gone through several sites that promotes incredible prospecting tools but other are just crappy information tools.
One thing that I have found in common in many sites is the phrase “Old and outdated MLM prospecting methods and MLM marketing techniques, the old school methods do not work anymore, do not call any lead or invite our family and friends, etc. etc“ I am sure you get the idea.
I have been doing network marketing for less than a year and I admit the first few months were a disaster but because I choose to follow that path. I did not train myself enough or did not educated in the required skills to be successful.
Old Marketing Techniques?
I have been using both online prospecting and “Old school methods” and believe me they work just as fine as they worked years ago. These techniques and methods of MLM prospecting are just tools for you to use them when you need to, they are not the solution to your problems of communication.
I learned the hard way that the best internet marketing tool is worthless if you do not have the skills necessary to communicate with people.
I learned that you don’t need to call any lead in your downline only if you are affiliate marketer selling an informational product or service which only requires users to make a product purchase. This does not apply for network marketing.
All network marketing downlines requires that the sponsor talk to people and train them properly. There is no way to build a large successful MLM downline without doing this step.
Even the so called Gurus admit they still need to talk to people. So why is it that there are so many MLMer that are still promotion and selling the idea that the Old school does not work anymore?
Old MLM Prospecting Techniques?
If the Internet tools and techniques were so good and came to resolve the inefficiencies of old and outdated MLM prospecting techniques how come the number of Network marketers failures continue to be such high number? It plain simple it is only a TOOL and not the solution.
Learn how to talk to people, learn how to train your downline, learn and apply what is needed for your opportunity then you will have better chances of success.
In my opinion personal skills will never be superseded by automation or any systematized way of MLM Prospecting!
