What to Say to Negative Prospects? – Post 331

You know the type.

They say, “Oh, I would never do network marketing. I don’t want to talk to my friends about something that would help them or improve their lives. I need to relax when I get home from my miserable job.”

Those people.

So let’s think about it. They have made a decision to wake up early when it is dark to go to work. They will fight traffic while commuting to a miserable job they hate. They will come home when it is dark. And they have agreed to do that almost every day of their lives.

They are willing to sacrifice their happiness and lives to earn just enough money to stay in debt and barely survive. Now, that is a big, big sacrifice, so you know they are not lazy.

So why is it they won’t join network marketing?

Because they don’t believe it will work for them. They are afraid that their friends will reject them, that they don’t know enough people, that they will work hard, waste their time, and not be successful.

So maybe we can help them believe?

Now, there are many ways we can help them believe more, so here are just two ways to get us started.

Way #1. Tell them, “Of course you don’t know how to do network marketing yet. The company doesn’t expect you to know how to do it before you start. But you will learn an easy system when you join, so it will be just as easy as your present job.”

What are they thinking after you say this? “Hey, you are right. I am scared because I don’t know how to do it. But that is okay that I don’t know now. I will be able to learn a system.”

Way #2. We learn better skills. When we have these skills we can confidently say, “I can teach you exactly what to say, word-for-word, to build your business. All you have to do is join and I will show you how to do it.”

New people feel confident when they realize you are competent and promise to help them. That is why we want to learn the 25 basic skills of our business.
