Network Marketing Training-Secrets to MLM Success during the Holidays-Part 1
by Doug Firebaugh
Sometimes, in MLM and network marketing, it sees when you say those words, network marketers shut down. They simply think that they will start again January 1, and kick it into gear. Network Marketing during the holidays does not exist, and they slow down to a crawl.
Who in the world sold you on that?
That is simply a dumb thing to do.
Yes, during the holidays, people are busy, and people are going places, shopping, and do not want to think about a home based business many times.
But it's because of the focus of ther networker. Many mlm distributors do not know how to work this business and hold conversations during the holiays. Your focus must be different than any other time of the year.
It takes a little finesse.
And you still have many things going for you that will work totally in your favor,and help kick your mlm business into gear the first of the year.
What 2 things are working in your favor during the holidays that makes it easy to create success in your Network marketing business?
1) People are in the Holiday Emotion.
Many folks are in the emotion of sentimental memories. They are remembering past Holdays and their favorite Christmas. They are thinking about the smell of pie and turkey. They are remembering their childhood. They are thinking of parents long past. And many are thinking about the Birth of Christ.
How can you move people to a real powerful emotion that draws them to you?
"What is your favorite holiday memory? Tell me about it."
People really will think about this, and then will give you their answer. And many times they get excited just thinking about it.
Why would you ask them this?
To open them up, and let the emotion of the Holidays flow, and draw them towards you. This simply will create an opening to talk to them after the first of the year.
"I would love to chat with you the first of the year. I could really use some help on something."
This simply will open the door to ask for their help in locating some talent for your business or customers that can benefit form your products.
2) People are in the Holiday Focus.
People are focused on many things during this time of the year. One focus is CHANGE.
People are looking to change things more than any other time of the year.
People are focused on EXPECTATION.
They are expecting and anticipating a great holiday season, and also a better new year. Talk to them about the change you can offer in their life. But set a time that is convenient for them.
People are focused on SHOPPING.
There is no better place to meet people than Holiday shopping.
Talk to them about their children.
Compliment their children.
Ask them about their plans for the holidays.
Ask if you can help someone who is struggling with bags of gifts.
Talk to people about the crowds in the malls.
Talk to people about the prices of goods today.
Ask people for their opinion on something you are thinking about buying.
Shopping is a great way for men and women to meet folks who are out and about. Especially in toy stores and books stores. These are great places to meet folks who have kids, and are readers. Readers and parents are great MLM prospects.
And retail clerks who are tired and harried are great prospects to talk to about changing things in 2006.
"Is next year going to be like this year for you working in this retail zoo? Do the crowds get to you sometimes? Here is my card. You deserve better than this. You have an incredible personality. Would love to chat sometime about getting you out of here."
MLM Success during the holidays is easy and quite fun, if you let it be. But you must keep your "radar" on to talk to folks and to help anyone who looks like they could need a hand.
"May I give you a hand with that? Here let me help. My name is doug, what's yours?"
The holiday season is a great time for CONNECTION.
Connect with new people to make new friends and to hold new conversations about the future and 2006.
What a way to start the new year- with 12 new friends that want to help you in your MLM and Network Marketing business!
