Who wouldn’t want to become a successful home-based entrepreneur and have the luxury of scheduling their own days? Why have you had so much trouble getting people to join your network marketing business. Why can’t they see what a great opportunity it is?
Here’s the top seven reasons why people won’t join your network marketing business.
1. Lack of Professionalism and Credibility
People prefer to buy from businesses that act professionally and appear credible because it reassures them that they will get what they are promised. When consumers shop, they have fear of regretting their purchase or being scammed. Businesses must assuage that fear enough for the consumer to buy from them. One of the most powerful ways to eliminate a buyer’s fears and concerns is to maintain a professional storefront and prove you’re credible.
How you go about this depends on what type of business you have. For instance, an Internet-based business shows professionalism through good website design, content free of grammar and spelling errors, and a strong digital footprint (through social media, additional websites/blogs and carefully crafted, meaningful content). These three things help your business appear more credible.
Additional ways to add credibility to your website are displaying awards you have won, major media outlets that have featured your work, and showcasing happy customer testimonials such as these with Isagenix:
If you’re new to network marketing, however, you won’t have those three things yet. You must rely on a professional website design, high quality content, and conducting yourself in a professional manner.
2. They Don’t Have the Drive or Desire to Start Network Marketing
The only reason on this list that you have no control over is this one. Some people don’t have the drive or desire to start network marketing. Although you can help motivate and inspire others, at the end of the day, whether or not they take action relies on them. An individual must keep themselves motivated to work on their business every day. When the initial excitement of network marketing wears off, they must remain dedicated to putting in the work regardless of how they feel.
It’s easy to think that successful network marketers are motivated all the time, but that’s not true. Everyone goes through periods of lower motivation. What makes the difference is some people have learned how to regain their motivation and know that they need to continue implementing their plan regardless of how motivated they feel.
When you talk to prospects, pay attention to how ambitious and attentive they are. It sounds harsh to some, but the reality is you’re not going to get lazy or unambitious people to join your network marketing business. Even if they do join, they will quit within a month or two. Instead of spending time trying to make them join, you could talk to the people who are highly motivated and driven. You’ll have a higher success rate with these prospects.
Never pigeonhole someone because you don’t think they will be interested in the opportunity. They might be looking for more money to pay off some debts, more time to spend with their young family, or simply want to set themselves up for retirement. You may not know their exact circumstances. People join network marketing for a variety of reasons.
