  • MLM Tip From Big Al: “How Would You Feel?”

    A few days ago I offered a very short story by Tom ‘Big Al’ Schreiter, the story of two young men. Here’s another one a bit longer that asks the question, “How would you feel if you weren’t told?”

    The Social Security Story

    Imagine you and I are both 85 years old. One day I come up to you and I say:

    “Hey, did you get your Social Security check yet?”

    And you say:

    “Huh?” 

    So I repeat the question and say:

    “Did you get your Social Security check in the mail this month?” 

    You frown and say:

    “Social Security check? What’s that?” 

    I explain:

    “You know about the Social Security check, don’t you? It’s the check the government gives you every month just for being old. Once you turn 65 years old, you fill out a little form and the Government sends you a check every month just for being old.” 

    You say:

    “Oh no! I didn’t know about it. And here I am, 85 years old, and for the last 20 years I could have been getting all that extra money. I just missed out on 240 checks of free money from the government!” 

    So how would you feel if that happened to you? Pretty bad. No one told you that you could have been getting those checks.

    And how would you feel if I said this?

    “Oh, I’m sorry. I knew about these checks all the time. I guess I just never bothered to tell you about them over the last 20 years. I thought maybe you wouldn’t be interested in getting that free money from the government.” 

    You would be mad! Really mad!

    That is why we must tell everyone we know that we do network marketing everyday but we just don’t get paid for it. They don’t know this, and they don’t know how to collect the check.

    Then, if they are interested in picking up that extra check, they can ask us for details.

    We don’t want one of our friends to come back to us five years, 10 years or 20 years later and say,

    “Why didn’t you tell me that I was already doing network marketing every day, but that I just wasn’t getting paid for it? What kind of a friend are you to withhold that kind of information? I could have been getting extra paychecks every month!”

  • MLM Tip from ‘Big Al’: Getting Your Prospect Engaged

    Tom ‘Big Al’ Schreiter offers a very simple and very short story you can use to easily get your prospects engaged in conversation and their imaginations going. Here it is:

    The Short Story Of Two Young Men

    There are two boys who are best friends. They grow up together. They go to school together. They grow up and become young men, and they both get good jobs in the same town.

    One young man earns his regular salary. The other young man earns his regular salary, but once a month he gets a $1,000 extra check from his normal recommendation of things he likes.

    Which young man gets ahead financially?

    * * *

    Well, this story should at least open up the conversation. You might end up talking with your prospect about how one young man is a better saver. Or maybe you’ll end up talking about how one young man gets an extra monthly check.

    The story captures the imagination and interest of your prospect. It is the best way to communicate.

    Each one of us has a story. In my eBook available only on Kindle I share six stories of network marketers who declared their desire for success but who unknowingly co-operated with their own undoing. You might want to check it out. http://Why98percentFail.com

    MLM Motivation: Why I Do This

    Here’s one reason I do MLM – Time Freedom:

    Being in business for myself allows me the time to take my 90-year old dad to Old Timers’ Day at Yankee Stadium.

    And yes, he REALLY did see Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig play!

    Telling True Stories

    Yesterday I blogged about the importance of being able to speak and listen to a very high level if we want to be successful as marketers.

    Seth Godin, who I frequently quote here on http://liveyourdream-ownyourlife.com, addresses this today but with a twist all his own — as usual.

    A true story

    Of course, that’s impossible.

    There’s no such thing as a true story. As soon as you start telling a story, making it relevant and interesting to me, hooking it into my worldviews and generating emotions and memories, it ceases to be true, at least if we define true as the whole truth, every possible fact, non-localized and regardless of culture.

    Since you’re going to tell a story, you might as well get good at it, focus on it and tell it in a way that you’re proud of.  ~~ http://sethgodin.typepad.com/seths_blog/2012/05/a-true-story.html

    As marketers the ability to tell a story is more than crucial as Seth suggests in his assumption “since you are going to tell a story”. It is really the fundamental tool we possess. Who doesn’t love a story and who can go without  an ending when listening to one? Start a story and you’ve got an attentive audience.

    Setting it to your relevance and interest in order to engage emotions and memories is more than OK. It’s the whole purpose.

    Don’t worry about the ‘truth’. After all you’re not testifying in court, just winning some hearts and minds.

    Why Network Marketing?

    There’s an old expression: “I quote others to better express myself.”

    So I am enlisting the help of Randy Gage in making the case for MLM, or Network Marketing. Here’s his latest blog post.

    ~~~~~~~

    Why Network Marketing?

    By Randy Gage  March 31st, 2012

    Some have skepticism about Network Marketing.  Others see it as the last bastion left in the free enterprise system an average person can create wealth.  Just how real is the promise, and why does it work?

    True economic freedom requires that you employ two basic prosperity principles:

    1)   You must employ the concept of leverage, to escape the trading-time-for-money dilemma; and

    2)   You must be able to look in the mirror every morning and know you’re talking to the boss.

    When you put these two factors in play, manifesting prosperity is no longer a wild pipe dream, but something you can really accomplish.

    When you take the entrepreneurial excitement of working for yourself and combine that with leveraging yourself through a network of other excited entrepreneurs—the results are exponentially spectacular. The synergistic process creates a whole that is much more powerful than its individual parts. Done properly, the end result of building your network is a self-perpetuating, residual income machine.

    There are probably as many reasons to work the biz as there are distributors. Usually, though, it comes down to the kind of lifestyle networking can give you. Some of the unique benefits of this business include:

    • Choosing the people you work with;
    • Going into business with a small investment;
    • Starting part-time;
    • Working from home;
    • Low Risk;
    • Picking the hours you work;
    • Discovering unique products not available elsewhere;
    • Getting lucrative tax advantages;
    • Enjoying the opportunity for an unlimited income;
    • Having the chance to build your success while empowering others to succeed.

    This complete benefit package simply is not available in any other business I know of.  It is unique to MLM.   So who can you tell about it today!
