Why Call Your Network Marketing Leads: Reason #4: Interesting People

Now that you are getting leads for your network marketing program, are you calling them? That is the only way to make money in this business.

And one of the great reasons to call is that you will be meeting some very interesting people.

From my experience the people I call for my network marketing leads generally turn out to be interesting people. And why not, after all they are probably just like you.

Not only will you hear great stories, but the people telling them will be interesting.

Think of how attraction marketing actually works. If you are putting yourself out there, connecting with like-minded people, it is bound to happen that some of them will be interesting. And when you hit the jackpot, you will find some very interesting ones.

From an experience perspective, you will find three types of people:

  1. People who are just starting out and know a lot less than you do
  2. People just like you, that have been in network marketing for about the same time, and who you can connect with on an equal basis
  3. People who know more than you

You will find people from each of these groups to be interesting. But for different reasons.

The people just starting out will be the most eager to learn, and you will be able to be the teacher, the trainer, the coach. Enjoy this situation and build your authority as you guide someone just beginning.

For people who are more similar to you it is possible to learn from their journey. Compare notes. Tell them your stories. They are a great group to practice with, and there is always the chance that you might be able to work together.

The more experienced people you come into contact with will also be interesting. You will be able to learn something from each and every one of them. Take advantage of that. Never be shy about asking questions. And chances are that they will be more than willing to be seen as the coach.

Now how do you get to hear these interesting people tell interesting stories? Easy. You get on the phone. Don’t expect others to be calling you. It is your role to pick up the phone. Start right now. Today. And you will learn and be entertained.

Good luck on your network marketing journey!

Why Call Your Network Marketing Leads: Reason #1: Make Money

If you are in network marketing, one of the most important tasks is to call your leads. But you already know that. What is the most important reason? This is where you make the money.

You can do as much passive marketing as you would like. Posting on your blog – like this one – or creating Facebook posts, Tweets on Twitter, and even YouTube videos. But the only thing that is going to make you money is your time on the phone.

Active marketing requires that you actually talk to people. That isn’t a problem, is it? After all you signed up for network marketing. So you will need to be talking to your network.

No one buys from a link posted on Facebook. It just doesn’t happen. Unless you are very, very lucky. In almost all cases, you will use your online marketing – active and passive – to find leads.

When someone gives you a phone number, do you call them? Right away? And develop your closing skills?  If not, how is your business doing? Are you the success you want to be? Need to be? Chances are there is room for improvement. A lot of room. Right?

I know how tough it can be to pick up the phone – we have all been there, but this is where they money is made. If you have done a good job of attracting leads, that is only part of the battle. Now you need to talk to the prospect.

I know this is a whole lot easier said than done. I have been in the same situation. I have gotten leads and just never picked up the phone. Of course I sent them an email – with an invitation to call me. I tried to make it as easy as possible. But that doesn’t work. It doesn’t for me, and probably doesn’t for you.

So here is my advice: get on the phone. Right now. Today. And you will see an insane change in your business. Now if you are already doing this – congratulations. But are there more calls to make? How about some follow-up calls? How many of those have you done today?

If you have signed up for a part-time or full-time career in network marketing, you will need to get on the phone. So let’s get started. Quit reading this and pick up your phone. Make a call.

I will be posting more about why you should be on the phone for your network marketing business. But the most important by far, is that this is where you make the money.

Have a great week! And good luck on the phone.
