Doesn't matter where you get your leads from you still have to pick up the phone and call them.

Wouldn't it be a good idea to learn the skills of talking to people right off the bat instead of hiding behind your computer, thinking you'll never have to interact/talk/sell to other people?

Or not.

I agree with you 3000 percent! I have to tell you a quick story. When I first got started, we won't say how far back that was, I only had one method of getting leads, buying from lists. I had to call, it would have been financial suicide not to! So I had these "god awful" scripts and I pounded the phones. But... I learned to talk to people, now its easy and fun.

Its amazing to me that someone will work so hard to get leads for free, but they won't pick up the phone and help them, I could go into a big tarade, but I will leave it at that, call them, it is "financial suicide" not to! (whether you bought a list or whether you spent your precious time creating them online!)

My two cents

You got it Stephen! Isn't it funny how the ones who call MLM a scam are the ones who either no nothing about it, or who quit before they ever get started and blame it on the industry? It makes it a little harder for the ones who actually do the work, but it is all worth it in the end.

I see the newest " new school " as a combination of both online and offline.

There has been countless numbers in the past who built a financial empire in network marketing and did it all with personal contact. Use to be the only way because there wasn't the Internet and auto responders and all the tools we have now. They either talked to people or went broke. Those who worked hard built fortunes.

We have it made. We can sit at our desk and get all the leads we want with a little work and a few clicks of a mouse. Every now and then we might get lucky and get a sign up online but it would be a slow death counting on the Internet to do all the work. What seperates those who make fortunes and those who don't hasn't changed much over time. Those who are willing to do the work, make the calls, and put their sweat into it will win. Those who aren't willing and rely on the Internet and on others to do it for them are the ones who will be calling MLM a scam, they'll never make any real money.

What's really great about all the work, marketing online, calling people, loosing sleep and all that business requires when your new is the foundation you build today will provide you with the lifestyle you want tomorrow. " Tomorrow " isn't that far away. The harder you work the sooner it gets here.

It's about marketing through your network. The only way to have a network is to have real relationships with people. As I always say, your business is as secure as your relationships. Your company may go under for whatever reason, but if you have your "network" you can pick up right where you left off in a new company!!!


Well said Jim. Welcome to BN !

Just hired someone to call your leads. Why waste your time, especially if you are not into it. But if you cannot get afford. Get busy and learn the skills.

You are so right Joyce.
I will confess, that I got into network marketing because I could do it online and not talk to people!

I have slowly but surely made myself more & more comfortable with talking to people.
I've been learning a lot of Tom 'Big Al' Schreiter's skills.
The secret though, is to practice, practice, practice!

I have found it very helpful to call up folks I know and do some quick role playing with them just to get practice with real people. Is it reading through a script? Well, of course it is! Every actor on the planet starts out reading a script! Then after many hours of practice and role playing, it comes out naturally.

So folks...let's practice!
I am always available if anyone wants to call me and practice for a few minutes!

Totally Chris. Where you get your lead doesn't matter, what you do with it afterwards separates the leaders from the pack.

It still boils down to you have to pick up the phone. Online or Offline !!

Be a network marketer - 24 hours a day, whether your computer is off or not.

Why are people forced into picking old school vs. new school MLM or online marketing vs. offline marketing.

1. You have a message 2. Distrabution channel (print, internet, mobile)

If you message sucks it does not matter where you market.

Love this subject thank Joyce =)
