Nothing is more frustrating than having spent all that time to get someone recruited onto your team and then not have them get any sales and quit. Can it be avoided?

Yes and No.

While a home-based business/Direct Sales/MLM is ideal for anyone, not everyone is suited for them. Some people think that you can join a company, do nothing and sales are going to fall out of the sky and into their lap. When it doesn’t happen, they can’t figure out why and blame everyone else except where the responsibility lies and that is with them.

For most people, the reason that they don’t get sales is because they just don’t know how and that is where this blog post comes in. Let’s cover some suggestions that you can use to help your team members get those first few sales.

1. Learn Their Style

Some people are more old school. They like physical brochures, materials and home parties. They do things over the phone and face to face. They aren’t techy and don’t really use social media.

Other people love the online world and social media and could care less if they ever saw a physical brochure. They are quite comfortable networking over social media and have a vast group of people to contact.

Then there are those in the middle who like and are comfortable with both.

2. Make Sure They Have the Material They Need Tweet This

If you give someone who is an online person only physical material, you will not see any results from them and vice versa. Once you know their style you can provide them what THEY need to succeed. You may only be comfortable in one style, but if you want to grow a thriving team, then you need to become versatile in both ways.

Also, be generous in physical materials. Yes, they do cost money and some people will waste them. But it is an investment in your business. In my years of experience, if I give my new team member 10 books, they will get out 7-8 and have 2-3 orders. Most times that is not enough to reach that first level where they earn rewards. They get discouraged and quit because they think it just doesn’t work.

If I give them 15 books, they will get out 10-12 and 6-7 orders. They have earned some rewards, made some money and are excited to do more. Those few extra books makes all the difference to their success.

3. Raise Your Expectations

In your company, if a good start is a $200 order to get all the goodies, then tell your new recruits that they need a $250 order. Most new reps will work to reach that goal, but many won’t quite reach it. So, if you make it a bit higher and they make it most of the way, they will actually reach the true goal.

You also need to change your mindset about your new Reps. If all you ever think is that you can’t find anyone good and that they never do anything, that is the people you will recruit. Your subconscious mind is a funny thing. It has been proven that your brain will work to make come true the things you believe in your heart will happen. It is a self-fulfilling prophecy. You won’t realize that you are doing it but it will happen.

If on the other hand, you believe that you are going to find awesome, hard-working reps who love what they do, for the most part, you will.

4. Have Regular Contact with Them

Find out how they like to communicate best (phone, email, text, Facebook Message) and then check in with them on a regular basis. Many times, when they are having problems they won’t come and tell you because they don’t want to feel foolish. But if you contact them and let them know that there are no stupid questions except the ones that are not asked, they will open up to you and you can help them solve their problems before it becomes an issue that causes them to quit.

By doing all these things, you increase the chances of your new team members not only staying but thriving as well. Choose to invest your time and energy into your new members and over time you will see the rewards of it.

Do you spend a lot of time chasing after people who really don’t want to be a part of your business and feel frustrated because of it?

Were you taught that everyone needs your business and that you can change everyone’s lives? That it is your job to convince them?

What about quantity is better than quality?

How about recruit, recruit, recruit, throw them up against the wall like mud and see who sticks?

I am so tired of all the things that people are taught that only create frustration and ultimately cause people to quit.

I spent so many years barking up the wrong tree and wondering why I was such a failure.

While I do believe in talking to a lot of people about my business and I do, I don’t chase people anymore that aren’t right for my business.

What would you rather have a thousand person team that doesn’t do much and you spend hours a day babysitting and trying to convince them to stay and do something, while constantly having to push people into your business to replace the constant stream of people who are leaving…

OR…

A hundred person team of reps who are reliable, who work their business, support you and are a great foundation to build the business you want and they consistently bring you in an income.

So when you are recruiting and someone is not interested let it go and move onto the next person.

If someone is sort of interested then do the proper follow up to determine if they are a good fit.

If someone really wants to join, then get them started right by investing in their training.

Don’t be desperate. There are lots of people interested in being entrepreneurs and building a business and you job is prospect enough people consistently to find the right ones for your business.

In the beginning it can be hard as you are doing a lot of work and not seeing as many results as you want, but as your business grows and momentum starts to kick in you will be so glad that you paid the price and barked up the right tree.

You may be thinking to yourself at this moment, “That’s great if you already know how to recruit?”

Or you may be thinking, “I have been taught the wrong way to recruit and I really need to learn the right way.”

Or maybe you already know how to recruit, but you haven’t figured out a duplicable system to be able to teach your team members how to recruit so that you can move levels.

If you are in any of these situations then you need to check out my newest training program MLM Success 101, ten videos that are going to show you everything you need to be able to go out and recruit someone within the next week.

Just imagine what it would be like to be out and about, doing your daily thing and by the end of the day you have one person interested in your business and a couple of new customers.

How would it feel to be able to walk up to someone you think might be really good for your business and you know what to say to get then to take a look at your presentation?

Would your business grow?

And what if it is simple enough that you can learn it quickly, start using it and be able to teach it to your team members at the same time?

Would that make a difference in how much money you are bringing in each month?

So make sure that you check out MLM Success 101 I have it priced at $19.95 right now, but I am not sure how long it will stay that way.

I have priced it in such a way that everyone can afford it and start seeing results.

To Your Success,
