It’s simple, Network Marketing is tough. I get it! However, I also GET IT…. I get that it takes time, I get that it’s more challenging than going to a 9 to 5 job, I get that it doesn’t become lucrative for a few years (should you get with the right company, but that’s another blog). I get it!! Problem is, most people DON’T! Now that doesn’t mean they aren’t smart enough too, it just means someone, at some point in time, burned them or lied to them or tricked them or just left them hanging. It happens, mostly with bad leadership and sometimes it’s because the person who started just didn’t get it.
Let me give you a quick run down of a few things I hear all the time when building my Q Sciences business (shameless plug):
1. I am not a sales person
This one, oh boy, this one right here really gets me. Everyone is a sales person!!! Look at the beautiful woman or handsome guy you are with, you obviously had to peak their interest somehow, that’s a sale! Ok, maybe that’s a little excessive, but what about your favorite movie, book, restaurant, or nail salon? You probably had an amazing experience and was so excited about it, you told everyone (or posted it several times on FB). That is a sale also! Everyone is a sales person, it just depends on what you are passionate about and that goes back to picking the right company.
2. I don’t have enough time
Ahh the dreaded, “I am too busy” mentality. Think of all the hours in your day. How much do you sleep? Do you nap? What about rush hour traffic (to me that is like sprinkling holy water on a vampire, I cringe every time I hear that word)? How about your favorite tv shows that occupy your evenings? The reality of every reality show you watch is you aren’t changing the reality you live in. <<< Huh?<<< Ok, it might be for entertainment purposes, I GET IT, but still you are wasting several hours a week.
3. I am too broke to get started
Everyone is broke in their own rights. Even millionaires file bankruptcy but in all actuality that is just another excuse. In my 16 years of experience, I have known hundreds of people who purchased a package with their company, and used that motivation to turn a profit because most packages are at a discounted price. Think about how may purchases you spend on the credit card that aren’t necessary? What about the extra things you get “for fun” with your paycheck… It’s little items like that, that could be saved up over time.. Heck, what about fast food? Average meal for an adult is between $4.00 and $7.00. Add a family in there and you are running about $300 bucks a month for meals. If you invested that $300 the first month, you could make it back plus about 10% to 30% more. Then, you have the opportunity for residual income. Imagine you made that $300 bucks every month. Who wouldn’t want an extra $3600 a year. Heck that could be a vacation! With Network marketing, they aren’t asking you to put in your life savings, spend 20 hours a day building, and give everyone you know a sales pitch. That isn’t how this business works… It’s doing a little bit, part time, so you can earn a little extra money. Eventually you will be able to earn a lot of extra money but that takes time.
So that is my top 3 objections! I am sure there are several more but these will be the ones you hear the most. It’s all about helping people GET IT. Learning that in just a few hours a week, you can hear enough to help your spouse stay home, or stop stressing over the water bill, or finally afford that vacation your relationship so desperately needs!
I encourage you to help those who you bring into this profession. Teach them that it’s not all about making millions because that will turn most of them away. It’s about giving them hope, relief, and a plan for the future. If you manipulate them into thinking they will be rich beyond their wildest dreams then you are setting them up for failure and heartbreak. Can they become rich, ABSOLUTELY, but only when they GET IT! When they see the magic in sometimes, then build the foundation part-time, and transition into full-time, that is when they will get it. That is when they will over come their objections and continue to chip away daily at obtaining their dream!
I hope you enjoy! Please follow feel free to share on FB.
