Everyone is your prospect , Really ?

Everyone is your prospect , Really ?

If you are in Network Marketing for more than 2-3 months, there is a very high probability that you are told that everybody is a prospect.

So you are told to compile the list of all your family, friends, colleagues, professional friends and then you are advised to contact them.

Now I am not saying this is not an effective method, because some people have built empires using these methods but for some people these methods are not quite effective. They can’t build their empire using these techniques.

But still this thing is propagated that

“Everyone is your prospect. They want it, they just don’t know it yet.”

This insane belief has led to such ridiculous practices as the “3 foot rule” technique.

Because of this lie, people have the mistaken idea that talking to anyone and everyone they come within arms length of is an effective recruiting technique.

Prospecting Tony at Wine shop…employees smoking cigarettes outside office premises…gas station attendants…total strangers at malls… the person sitting next to you in CCD…dropping your business cards on windshields….

These kind of antic tactics have damaged this industry’s reputation almost beyond repair.

They’ve absolutely destroyed any image of professionalism and made it harder for everyone to sponsor people.

It’s absolute idiocy. Don’t buy into this fallacy.

Not everyone is your prospect.

If you don’t get it , just write it down on the sheet of paper, this business is not for everybody.

  • Some people love their job and wouldn’t give it up for a million bucks.
  • Some people despise network marketing and would rather be burned alive than be associated with it.
  • Some people despise business in general.
  • Some people think making lots of money is a bad thing.
  • Some people don’t have the funds to properly run a business.
  • Some people are absolutely scared to death of anything that involves risk.
  • Some people have plenty of money and aren’t looking for anything else.
  • Some people just plain old don’t care. Some people don’t have time. Some people just aren’t
  • cut out to be entrepreneurs and are better off working at McDonald’s.
  • Some people are perfectly content with where they are at in life and have no desire to change. That’s fine.

No one is worth your time until they’ve shown an interest in what you’re offering and have asked you for more information.

It’s not a good use of your time to try and convince someone who disagrees with your way of thinking.

When you market this way, it shows your prospect that you’re the type of business person who isn’t professional (or successful) enough to invest in some respectable marketing methods. It immediately projects a “cheap image”.

Why do that when there are millions of people who actually do want to start their own business? The ones who warrant your attention are the ones who take the initiative and go out of there way to find out how to do it. These people are prospects.

Another problem with this mentality is, if everyone’s a prospect that means you have to constantly be “on the prowl.”

Anytime you first meet somebody, you’re always looking for that opportunity to bring up for your business.

Wouldn’t it be nice to not have to worry about that? To hold a conversation without thinking of ways to recruit them in the back of your mind? Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to separate your personal life from your business life?

So why expend valuable time and energy trying to force-feed your opportunity down the throat of someone who’s entirely indifferent?

Why do that when there are millions of people who actually do want to start their own business? The ones who warrant your attention are the ones who take the initiative and go out of there way to find out how to do it. These people are prospects.
