If you are involved in the MLM industry then you are likely already aware of the illness that plagues it. The worst part about it all is that you are rarely aware that there is a problem until it’s already too late.
The work from home MLM industry is founded on the principal that people want to work less and make more; some are even willing to work more to make more. MLM leads that are brought into the industry want to leave their day to day jobs, find a way to retire early, buy a bigger house to make room for the new baby, or just have some extra spending money.
Usually it’s not a complicated matter. People want to be happier, take control of their schedule, and be able to decide what a priority is for them instead of being told what their priority should be. When it comes right down it all home based business leads want the same thing – a solution. Something that will allow them to achieve the goals they have set for themselves. If you are involved in the MLM industry I can guarantee that you were the same once too, and perhaps you still are.
Unfortunately this is where infection can set in.
When you contact your business opportunity leads you may be blinded by the visions of your dream and think to yourself ‘if only this person would sign up then I am one step closer to my goal!’ You begin to mentally salivate over your home business lead with the thoughts of your success. A lot like when a dog slobbers all over its food when it’s hungry. Now picture your lead being slobbered on in the same way when a big hound can’t wait to get at its food. Not a pretty picture is it? No one likes to be drooled on like a piece of meat.
And that is the infection that I am talking about.
There is nothing wrong with being successful, and having a batch of quality work at home leads can certain make that a reality, but the infection of desire for personal gain can cause you to become oblivious to what will make you truly successful. When you contact your MLM lead they want to hear about your opportunity, but if you want true success you need to learn to use your ears.
Didn’t someone say “you were given two ears and only one mouth so you can listen twice as much as you speak?” Well whoever said that must have been an MLM genius! And it is the MLM genius that can take their network marketing leads and become a true success story in the MLM industry.
The truth is it’s not that hard to become a genius in the MLM industry.
Every person has a story and the home based business lead that you contact wants to know that your MLM opportunity is going to make their story better; make their lives better. If you want to get the most out of your MLM leads you need to be willing to make their goals your priority. When you do that you reach your goals almost effortless.
Think about it, if I gave you a call right now and told you all about how my business was great and that the only way to make it successful was to work around the clock – would that be interesting if you were looking for a home business opportunity because you just had a new baby? Of course not because you are going to want to spend time raising your new child – that’s probably why you wanted this opportunity to begin with.
The simple solution is to talk with your home business lead and see what they have in mind. If your opportunity can be the solution to their desires then you have a winner! If you find that their desires aren’t compatible to your business then signing them up will only make them jaded against you and your company because you failed to meet their expectations.
