The Problems With Prospecting And Recruiting

I Was So Sick And Tired Of Posting My Company Link Over And Over Again With Little Or No Results!

To find the next hot prospect; I was being told to…

  • Post my company opportunity link on my Facebook personal page.
  • Send strangers PMs about a startup opportunity.
  • Contact someone using a Personal Message and giving them a company link.
  • Send out friend request then PM them with that link.
  • I was even told to post the opportunity links in the comment section of other people’s posts.

It's now been several years since I made the transition from Old School to...

Actually getting results from my online prospecting.

And here's the good news...

In 2016 I quit my job as a Corporate Executive by earning enough income to go full time in my business and now have FREEDOM!

Plus I love this team!

Now let me ask you...

Would you like to be here?

Well it's possible with the right Training that’s not the traditional "Old School RAH-RAH" that I’d received over and over again at all those company events.

You know being told it's only a numbers game that leads you to all those blunders, embarrassing moments, and prospecting indiscretions!

I sure hope my family, friends, and those poor strangers I attempted to prospect have long forgotten the things I did wrong. LOL 

Let me open up the kimono...

Because of the way I was taught, I had many errors in judgment on this journey such as…

Have you ever invited friends and family over for a holiday dinner and found a way to transition into showing the plan? 

I wonder why they're all angry? Well I have.

Have you ever tried to prospect your realtor on a cold call and have her respond immediately with, “Is this XXXX?” Yes done this also!

Here’s a good one…

Have you been told to join a local networking group, drive over an hour to get there to find those new prospects, and discover…

Everyone at the meeting is now calling you, day after day, to get you to join their team!

Here is the thing...

For years I was being taught “Old School Brought Online.”

Let's get real...

Are you tiered of being told it’s only a numbers game; keep posting?

Tiered of dealing with this on social media…

  • People get angry and attacked you with a private message?
  • People unfriended and blocked you?

What I've figured out over the years is most uplines have taken old school techniques and brought them online.

You know giving you advice that is over 50 years old and not working online any better than it works offline these days!

All my company & upline cared about was posting the company link.

I’d been turned into a SPAM BOT! 

Many of my mentors are professional online marketers.

They tell me success in business is all about ‘time’, ‘place’ and, ‘message’.

Unfortunately, many network marketers today are taught online prospecting methods, which use the wrong message, delivered at the wrong time, and most definitely in all the wrong places.

Here is the truth!

There is a VERY fine line between recruiting with social media and spamming people.

Unfortunately most network marketers are being turned into human spam bots by their upline and company.

I call this the “Disposable Distributors Syndrome.”

That is, a company’s downline is tasked with the job of spreading the word about their company’s opportunity, at the expense of an individual’s reputation.

And this can actually lead to the suspension of your social media accounts…

You know being placed in Facebook Jail.

One of my best team members shared an examples of the WRONG WAY to prospect online.

She sent me a screenshots of a poor attempt to prospect that she received from another company before she joined our team…

Have you seen these kind of approaches? 

The above is an example of the WRONG Way to Prospect and Recruit online!

Successful networkers eventually learn the true secret to prospecting and recruiting online...

People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care. — Theodore Roosevelt.

The screenshots above is an example of a poor attempt of old school recruiting being brought online.

Building a successful business online is not about tricking people or finding the right copy/paste Facebook messages to send to strangers and spam all over the internet.

It’s actually about caring for people, becoming a person of value, and someone uniquely positioned to help them with their problems.

That last one is critical “uniquely positioned to help someone with their problems.”

Any idiot can copy and paste a message into Groups or a Private Message on Facebook

So what do you think sets someone apart from the rest of the desperate reps hitting people’s inboxes and spamming the internet with their “ground floor” opportunities?

Well it is not spamming!

It's devoting the time to learn the skills and strategy you need to do it right!

Are you still a little fuzzy on whether you're a spammer or not, here’s a guide to help…

Top 5 Warning Signs That Your Prospecting Efforts are Actually SPAM

  1. Your first private message to a stranger on social media includes a link to join your opportunity.
  2. You get angry replies via private messaging and/or you have been reported as a spammer.
  3. You post links to your opportunity or website in the comments section of other people’s social media post.
  4. You compulsively want to talk about your company or products, without anyone asking you to share.
  5. Finally…this one is the most important…You engage in interactions online, with a hidden agenda, hoping to transition the topic to something that would get people interested in your opportunity, without caring about knowing the other person.

This last one for me is a big one but could also be controversial.

After all, #5 is the very definition of prospecting (online or offline), which even when done right…

Can still feel awkward, result in people getting angry at you and very unleveraged, which is why I eventually decided to stop prospecting the old fashion way. 

And here’s the interesting thing after learning the proper online skills such as this FREE Step-By-Step Training prospecting became an automated process.

“When I Stopped Prospecting People, My Business Started Growing!”

Not only that, it is was very liberating! 

I can’t tell you how relieved I was and what a pure sense of peace came over me...

When I was able to go out with my friends, visiting a family member’s home, and go on vacation without having to think about prospecting anyone all the time.

Just enjoying being normal again, was incredible, after years of being taught that “everyone is a prospect” and approaching every conversation with a hidden agenda...

I was finally free to live a normal life!

That’s because it wasn’t until I STOPPED old school prospecting, that my business actually started growing!

Weird, right?

At this point, you may be asking, “how was it that your business grew?”

Before I answer that, I have to say there are people who are very skilled prospectors and recruiters using traditional methods.

They approach every interaction with a stranger as a prospecting opportunity.

Getting yelled at or cursed out by prospects is no big deal, as long as some people say ‘yes.’…

You know: some will, some won’t, so what.

They have master their traditional techniques.

I too learn to become a good traditional prospector...

But finally decided I didn’t want to build my business this way anymore.

The problem with prospecting in general, as old school methods teach, is the mindset going in.

It's about what YOU can manipulate people into doing.

In other words, it’s about YOU, not them. I didn’t like that, but I still did it until I found a better way...

There is an Alternative to Old School Prospecting, Which Won’t Make You Feel Like a Used Car Sales Man.

Now, I’m not trying to be high and mighty about all this prospecting stuff, because I’m not.

If it came down to eating or starving I would still use ‘stone cold’ prospecting tactics without remorse.

But the reason I was able to quit traditional prospecting was because, with the help of some extraordinary mentors, I eventually discovered an online recruiting strategy, which…

Enabled me to recruit more people in 1 Day, than the most skilled recruiter in the world can do in 1 Month…

I was able to passively generate prospects and potential new people who want to join my business when I’m out having fun with friends and family.

In other words I didn’t have to worry about prospecting them!

Rather than spending hours spamming, joining endless groups, or private messaging people on social media...

I learned how to legitimately get Facebook and other networks to actually help me attract the people who are most interested in what I have to offer, using their ads platform!

WOW I have a normal life again!

In fact, every day now, I awaken to an email inbox full of notifications for new prospects and potential new team members who came in while I was sleeping!

This powerful internet marketing strategy is designed for Networker Marketers who want to become powerful Business Builders!

If your business depends on you being on social media, joining groups, sending private messages, or commenting on people’s posts all day, you are NOT doing internet marketing…despite what you've been led to believe.

Online prospecting and internet marketing are NOT the same thing!

Internet marketing is a passive strategy, which works, even when you're not!

If you want to learn how it works, I actually reveal the entire strategy I’m using in “How To Attract An Endless Stream Of Ready-To-Join Prospects… Starting Today.”

Now if traditional old school prospecting online or offline is your thing and you want to stick to that, by all means, go for it, it does work!

As for me...

It become more important to live my life the way I wanted to:

  • Actually take a vacation without prospecting someone inline.
  • I discovered it was better to make money in my business first…
  • Then have my friends & family beg me to tell them what I’m doing.
