Recruiting For MLM Notes For Networkers

From my notes, I want to talk to you about recruiting for mlm companies. It does not matter what mlm company you are in, all of us do the exact same thing. so it would help you tremendously in your career to make sure that you have a great understanding of how recruiting for mlm companies goes.

Recruiting For MLM The Right way

I was taught early on that there is no right or wrong way to do this. In fact, there’s just effective or ineffective.  The vast majority of networkers in this industry, frankly, are using ineffective methods while recruiting for MLM. The reason is because most never enroll themselves in Real Network Marketing Training. There is a lot of stuff out there that looks like network marketing training but it isn’t. Lots of systems out there are teaching Internet Marketing which, is literally an entirely different animal from network marketing.

recruiting for mlm is a different animal from internet marketing

In fact, while we are discussing recruiting for MLM it won’t hurt to point out a major difference between Internet Marketing and Network Marketing – it’s obvious and in our faces yet, how often do we miss stuff that is obvious And in our faces?

Network Marketing is about marketing to your (our) networks. So, networks matter. Our relationships with the people we know, matters.  Network Marketing is The Relationship Business. That’s not changing anytime soon. Where as Internet Marketing is about marking, To the Internet. Trust me I know that seems over simplified but that is exactly the challenge.  You have to learn to keep things simple. With internet marketing, your relationship with others does not matter. It’s also a much tougher sell – because usually, Strangers do not buy from Strangers.

This is why big companies run Commercial ads; in order to build a ‘trust-relationship’ with a random consumer …. and sadly, too many people recruiting for MLM have been duped into believing this method will work, for them.

Sorry to be the bearer of REALITY – Recruiting for MLM companies is a skillset. You must take the time to learn it. I’ll give you a few tips now, from my notes.

I’ll be honest.

I think these notes were for a training but, I am not sure if I ever put that training together. However I’m cleaning up and  have loose papers laying around, with gold nuggets for anyone who wants to get better at recruiting for MLM; because that is where it starts. YOU have to WANT to get better. No one can do that for you.

Recruiting is a conversation.  It’s about knowing what to say, and when to say it.

Some people in network marketing today, are just not ‘ready’ to have that conversation, while some THINK they are ready.

There are far too many Misconceptions about what we do. Too many networkers think we have to talk people into joining MLM. We think the product or service matters. (It does, but it really does not.) We even have people who think the compensation plan matters. In truth, none of these things matter – when it comes to recruiting for MLM.

Most people Suck at recruiting, because they don’t understand recruiting.

They don’t really understand Odds.  They don’t know how to have the conversations. Not understanding how to have this conversation, with not understanding the numbers – adds up to sucking every single time.

When we talk about the Odds; you may have heard this before – it’s a Numbers Game. If you talk to 10 people about your business, 1 person should join your business. When this happens, we say you have a 10:1 closing ratio. If you want to recruit 5 people for your MLM you’ll know you need to talk to at least 50 people.  Far too many people in MLM are not even thinking about any of this right now.  After a handful of people turn them down, they’re ready to quit.  They do not understand the odds – they don’t get the numbers!

How your Conversation Improves your Closing Ratio

The conversation, determines what your closing ratio will be. That conversation, also depends on just how good your relationship is, with the person you’re having this conversation with! So, what we say, while recruiting for mlm, Matters. When we say it, matters. WHO We say it to, matters. These factors, ‘internet marketing gurus’ do not teach you. Most of you are entirely unprepared for this. You are going into your day to day, unprepared to win. You see, the better your conversation is, with people who know, like, and trust you, the higher your closing ratio will be.  If your ratio is 10:0 – you really suck at this. The good news is you Can get better!

Some networkers are so good at this that their closing ratio is 10:3 – or 30%; Some people are good enough to have a 40-50% closing ratio – but I’ve never met anyone who’s ratio is 100%!  If you meet anyone claiming to have a ratio as high as 60-70% …. they’re lying!

Misconceptions weaken your conversation. If you do not understand what I just shared, chances are your closing ratio is pretty low. Chances are high, that you’re not talking to nearly enough people, nor are you saying the right things to them. I mean… nor are you using ‘effective methods’ to move people into your mlm business. You are never going to move everyone. That never happens. You’re not even going to move MOST – unless you are truly exceptional!

The only way to Improve your conversation – is through Education and Training – also, this has to be an Ongoing part of your career. Ongoing growth improves your conversation, and makes you better at recruiting for MLM. Once you learn these skills here, you can translate them to other areas of your life. You’ll even find these skill sets will serve you greatly, should you go into business for your self!

Times Are Changing And You Are the Ostrich

*Updated 1/31/2016 – I hope You are Not Still The Ostrich – by now you’ve had plenty of examples in the MLM Industry to know by now, that times are changing. When I wrote this piece on how You are the Ostrich, I ended up talking about a company that has since, gone out of business. That company, was LevelOneNetwork.  It was part of our one MLM system, which itself sends a message to all members of our business organization. If You are the ostrich with your head in the sand, you’re sure to miss out on all the Opportunity this industry has today. The overall message of this article still remains true to this day. Thanks for stopping by to read what I had to share; More updated commentary is below!

Times Are Changing and You Are The Ostrich

Pull Your Head Out of the Sand!

Stop being the Ostrich and be an Eagle – Come fly with us!

“The Message” of TopNetworkersGroup is spreading – more and more people are ‘starting to see’ what We’ve been Telling YOU about – and the entire Industry about, since 2010. WE MUST adapt to the Changes that are COMING – to our INDUSTRY, which include the ongoing changes occurring In our World.

Here’s an awesome video that was sent my way – Featuring Gary Vaynerchuk speaking at the Go Pro Recruiting Mastery Event – hosted by Eric Worre

“You are like the Ostrich with your Head In the Sand. You’re becoming the person we make fun of in our industry.” – Gary Vaynerchuk

Members of OUR TEAM will have access to the entire Book, “Go Pro” by Eric Worre – as well as the ability to share this awesome information with other serious networkers. That being said, what Mr. Vaynerchuk is talking about, is Exactly what we’ve been saying to you. do not put your eggs in ONE basket…

Not one Social Network (basket)

Not one MLM company (basket)

Not One Way of Marketing/Promoting (basket)

You and I MUST adapt; and be able to add NEW Skillsets to our Toolbox – and yet, have a “system” to manage multiple baskets – without throwing away the Proven Old School methods that people KNOW will work, when it comes to recruiting. So many people in MLM Know this is what’s needed – and only WE Have What everyone in MLM is looking for;

The One MLM System to rule Them All –  which Includes Training on “our Strategy” to do what all of us NEED to be doing; so that WE will continue to make money in this industry, and this world, as changes continue to come. (*Update 1/31/16 – If you are the ostrich, then you’re probably thinking about why what We’re talking about will not work. However here is a prime example of how solid our strategy is. The company below went Out of business. We simply took this company ‘off our shelf’ – and have since replaced it with DsDomination – we also have room to put another program on our shelf, with an overhead of $50/mo)


While Working on NEW presentation slides for our 1mlmsystem – I wanted to find out how much money a person could make with LevelOneNetwork, if they built a 5×5 Organization. This is “part 2” – where the math is correct, after doing the math incorrectly in part 1.

LevelOneNetwork is was part of our $50 Level in the 1mlmsystem; We feel that if you will simply BUILD your Organization first; and they Follow you into the programs we recommend; you and your team will make SERIOUS MONEY – while being involved in some of the best programs that Network Marketing Has to offer now – that will most likely serve you for SEVERAL years to come – as each program is tested thoroughly before being added to our mixture – We want to make sure these companies will pay out on time, and that they offer something of ‘real value’ to you and I, as distributors. (However when they go OUT of business, your structure is still in place, and you’re still earning money together, in other places.)

Building a 5×5 Organization, that taps into our $10 Level – will bring You over $4,000 per month residually, on our $10 Level alone; and as you saw in the video above, adding that organization to the $50 level, would bring you an additional $4,000 per month, along with the ability to Earn from the 6th, 7th, 8th and infinite levels of your organization, as it continues to grow. (Check out our new 10into10k.com Funnel – which will soon include a Section on SEO to replace what we lost with LevelOneNetwork, not being able to stay in business.)

Meanwhile if you and your Team will USE the training provided in LevelOneNetwork, You will learn and master SEO, and have a newfound approach to Online Marketing (due to the Real Online Marketing courses you get with This Training and Blogging Platform) – with a real understanding that the Sky truly is the limit for members of our Team.

With the Same Organization, joining Multiple Programs – the incomes of you and your business partners will far surpass what others are seeing in our industry right now; Our Team will change everything about this game. You can be part of that change – or you can continue to watch others Confirm, what we already know.
