One sure way to fail in Network Marketing, Part 3

In the first two parts of this series I told you how I was a lead being called by a Network Marketer. This made me think about the times when I called leads and how uncomfortable it can be. Calling cold leads can be one sure way to fail in Network Marketing.

I know that there are people who succeed doing this. I know that saying that this is a sure way to fail in Network Marketing is controversial. But for many Network Marketers it is. It’s not just about a bad script or a bad lead.

It’s the difference between attracting people and chasing them. Cold calling may be your best chance to fail in Network Marketing because you are not attracting these leads to you, you are going after them.

There is an alternative way to build a Network Marketing business besides calling people who don’t want to be called. Some forget that they filled out a form or lose interest in a home business. Some just have no idea they are leads.

Even with great and hot leads you have to go through many until you find a good prospect for you. And if you don’t have good communication skills you are wasting your money anyway. Don’t get me wrong, you do need those skills if you are doing Network Marketing Online too.

The only point I want to make here is that we don’t need to do that! We don’t need to call cold leads. The best leads to call are the ones who have asked us to do so. That usually happens only after they receive value from us, know they can learn from us and want to work with us.

If you are still making those calls and are feeling frustrated about it, it’s time to consider using the Internet to attract prospects and build your Network Marketing business.

One of the best ways to start is with Ann Sieg’s free e-book The 7 Great Lies Of Network Marketing. Get a copy and learn more about sure ways to fail in Network Marketing.

Then start working on your new online strategy. I’m here to help. We can do it together.
