  I created this outline about a year ago to help my downline really understand the fundamentals behind network marketing. I was a night life entertainment promoter for years putting together some of the biggest events in the southen states to the west coast and a large majority of my following came from the relationships I made. Its funny how things feed off each other becuase the reason why I am in a network marketing travel agency is because of all the partiers I know who book with their travel with me. Here are some techniques I used and annalyzed  through out the years on what worked to get myself to the position I was in. If  you study these principals on a regular basis I can promise you that your networking skills will shoot through the roof. This will teach you to be in control of the conversation each and every time.

      a.Stop thinking about yourself and think about them; find out what you can do for them.
      b.Discover what makes them tick. Discover what motivates them and you will be able  to understand them.
      c.You cannot get what you want unless you give first.    *There are 14 secrete motivators of needs and desires in humans.
1.   Having a sense of power or importance.
2.   Ego gratification-pride.
3.   Financial success.
4.   Being recognized by others.
5.   Group approval.

11.    Liberty-freedom from privacy or intrusion.
12.    Self-esteem.
13.    Love-in all forms.
14.    Emotional security.   People have the greatest desire for what they are lacking.
1.    People’s needs and desires change. They are never static. Stay informed about them.
2.    Find out people’s needs and desires through conversation and through other people.   *5 things you need to consider and do to get people to talk to you.
1)    Be genuinely interested in each person and problem.
2)    Be a good listener. Watch for what the other person doesn’t talk about.
3)    Encourage the person to talk by putting no pressure on them. Agree with a nod to their statements.
4)    Talk in terms of their interest.  Talk about what they want, not what you want.           They don’t care about what you want until you can get them what they want first.
5)    Feed their ego in a sincere manner.   *Use the 5 W’s to get specific answers to your questions.
1)    Who
2)    What
3)    When
4)    Where
5)    Why
6)    How-on exception *A person’s favorite subject to talk about is himself.
*The next favorite subject a person likes to talk about is an extension of himself. Example-Hobbies, family, their job, etc…   People want to dominate others. It’s a hidden desire of almost everyone. It makes you feel more important. see 1-14.
1)  Feed a persons ego. It will reveal to you what they want.
2)  They already want power over you so give it to them.   *4 Tips for opening up a conversation
1)    Never open a conversation by saying “Hello” it’s dull and it goes nowhere.
2)    Use what I call a topic teaser. This is a subject that stimulates their interest. *What makes them tick? Desires? 3)    Have a good opening first impression (as best as you can).
4)    Have a good closing impression (as best as you can).   *To get a persons interest immediately
1)    Ask a question while stroking their ego at the same time.
2)    Example...“Where did you buy those shoes? You have got really good taste in style.”
3)    Concentrate on the person’s interest.   *According to 1000 women they love and hate to talk about…

*Project individuality. Talk about a subject that you are well informed on.
            *Avoid controversy; this will keep the conversation positive.

1)    Do not down them in details. This can cause confusion.
2)    Attention is lost when understanding is lost.
