Sometimes the best thing you could do for your home based business is change the scenery. Unfortunately it is not always all that easy to create a downline in another country especially if you don’t know anyone who lives there.
In fact, if you do know someone who lives in a country that you would like to build your empire into it may be wise to feel out the situation first. Inviting your friends and family into your MLM may be a great idea however if they feel that you are just looking for an anchor in their market it could strain your relationship.
The best way to break into a new area is to find a MLM Leads Company that offers work at home leads for the area that you’re looking for. If you do your research and ensure that they are quality MLM leads then you will be buying a list of contact information for people who have asked to be contacted regarding a home business opportunity.
When you expand your downline into a new area there are always things that you are going to want to look out for. For and foremost you want to ensure that your MLM Leads Company is a quality source of home based opportunity leads.
Avoid MLM Lead Companies that entice people into becoming a MLM lead.
Many MLM lead companies will offer an incentive to take their questionnaire and gather their contact information. This reduces the quality of the lead because they may not be interested in your opportunity at all – they were merely looking to win a new iPod, or other incentive.
Research how they obtained their home based business leads.
Some lead companies have been accused of gathering their leads by taking names out of phone books, retrieving information from website spiders that are designed to collect names and email addresses, or other less than ethical practices. Be sure that the company that you deal with only uses legal and ethical practices to gather their MLM leads.
How long has the MLM Lead Company been in business?
A company that provides business opportunity leads needs to be prepared to stand behind their product. If the company has not been in business for very long you will have no way of determining whether they are a ‘fly by night’ operation or not. Give them a little time to gain some credibility before you invest your money into them. If they have come highly recommended from a trusted source, then wait for a sale or promotion so you invest less the first time.
Does the MLM Lead Company have a guarantee?
MLM Lead Companies that won’t guarantee their service are giving you a warning flag. A guarantee shows that the company providing you your work at home leads is ready to stand behind their product – even at their own cost.
Of course a guarantee doesn’t help if the company ends up being a fly by night operation because they will have closed down with your money long before they have to worry about supporting their guarantee.
Be sure that the business opportunity leads that you are buying speak a language that you are fluent in.
One of the hazards of opening your downline into a new country is the language barrier. If you cannot find a way to clearly and effectively communicate to your MLM leads then how do you expect to be able to understand their needs? Don’t have faith that your rudimentary skills in their language will be enough – true fluency is required to get your money’s worth out of the MLM leads that you paid for.
Be prepared for some culture shock
This goes for both you and your work from home lead. You will be calling MLM leads from another culture which can work for you if you do it properly. They will be interested to know how things are different where you live, and be curious about your country or area. On the flip side they will want to be reassured that they will get your full support even if they are in another country. They will also want to know how that support will be effective.
Once you have gotten past these obstacles you should not have much difficulty launching your downline into a new area. Using a quality MLM Lead Company means that they have done most of the work for you. Now you just need to contact your new MLM leads and start recruiting!
