Recruiting is literally the number one most important skill set you can have in your Network Marketing business.
You can wish and pray that it isn’t…but that ain’t gonna save you sista.
Maybe it’s time to face the facts and just get real good at it.
How’s that for an idea?

3. What you say – You’re in the right spot for this one :)
Clearly the last one is something that is actually talked about a lot in this industry…
What You Say
I really feel that this ‘secret’ is really the most obvious one.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand that if you aren’t saying the right things, you probably aren’t going to recruit anyone.
So then why do so many get it wrong?
I mean, come on, there are a ton of…
…youtube videos on the topic.
Shouldn’t we all be masters by now?
Are we really THIS lazy?
Do you see what’s wrong with this picture?
Seriously, if I just outed you for doing this… or you’re a leader teaching this stuff to your team PLEASE for the love of all things holy STOP!
Look, when I was new in business and especially new in network marketing I went to networking events to meet people when “my list dried up”
(PS – that’s code for I had talked to all my warm market that I was COMFORTABLE talking to).
The Facebook thing wasn’t an obvious approach to building our business back then so these events were a great way to meet entrepreneurs.
As a young person, but more importantly a new person, my approach was never:
“Hey I don’t know the first thing about you but let me puke all over you about how much money I can show you how to make.”
In fact my approach was the exact opposite.
I would approach people, hat in hand, and say:
“Look I’m new in business, I don’t really know what I’m doing yet but I’m really hungry to learn and to get around successful people. Can I buy you a cup of coffee?”
After 10 months of buying people coffee I had made my first six figures in network marketing and managed to make a lot of friends and great business contacts for other endeavours in the process.
My point is… don’t approach people like YOU GOT IT, when you don’t.
Carry yourself with pride and confidence, throw in a dash of humility and an eagerness to learn and you will find people are actually surprisingly receptive to helping you.
You might be wondering…
Why is that Jess?
I’m not following…
You see, when you approach people this way you’ll notice that they don’t care about “masterminding in a Facebook group” with a bunch of people they have never met before.
They don’t care about all the special ingredients in your products.
They don’t care about all the money that they could make.
They don’t care who you are in business with or how good they are doing.
They don’t care what you have in common.
…Because they don’t know you from Adam and they don’t know what value you can bring to their lives.
But most importantly, they don’t care because…
They know you don’t really care about them.
People can SMELL your intention…even through Facebook.
This is a business where people do business with those that they KNOW, LIKE, and TRUST.
I know, it sounds cliché…but it’s true.
On the rare occasion I find myself in a coffee meeting with someone… I am not talking about myself.
What I am doing is ASKING QUESTIONS…
…about their business
…about their interests
Not because I want to steer the conversation a certain way, but because I am GENUINELY interested in getting to know that person.
Make a friend first.
Throughout the friendship, I learn about ways that I can help them out with anything…even if sometimes it’s not related to an outcome to me.
If you do this well and are 100% authentic, you’re going to notice something pretty spectacular.
You won’t really have to say much in the end to have people join you in your business.
Because you have built a solid friendship with people who really want to help you out and be involved in your life.
I have been in this industry for A LONG time, and I can tell you that you better like the people you are in business with because you spend a lot of time with those people.
They become your best friends, your second family.
If you are just going after everybody and anybody, you’re going to get really crappy results and face a lot of unwelcome negativity towards you.
How fun does that sound?
Show Your Friends Your Business
Of course, we are in the business of the more times you can present your business the better results you will end up getting.
Which is probably WHY so many people act so lazy when it comes to recruiting.
They believe that it’s all about the quantity of people that they can talk to.
But if you actually approach things the right way and build authentic friendships, you’re going to really notice that you won’t actually have to say much at all.
You will actually end up having to talk to and say LESS to LESS people.
How To Speed Up The Process
Does making friends first take more time?
Is it worth it?
Of course, a HUGE reason why these nasty mass messages exist is because we live in an insta-culture where we want results and we want them fast.
I don’t blame you, I’m the same way.
Sometimes, patience is not my virtue.
Developing friendships is a marathon and takes time…
You have to be okay with sitting in coffee shops, night after night, hour after hour.
You have to be okay with the fact that it is major time away from your family, friends, and hobbies.
You have to be okay with the fact that people won’t show and waste your time.
You have to be okay with the fact that some of the people you meet are complete yahoo’s.
You will have be okay with the fact that it’s totally out of your comfort zone and do it anyway.
Ultimately, you have to be okay with the fact that it could be days, weeks, months, or even years before you could see any return on the investment.
So are there things that you can do to really speed up the process?
Things that you can do so you don’t have to settle on your comfort zone, keep your freedom of time and sanity?
What I have been able to do and coach others in Seacret how to do is position themselves in front of people who are already searching to buy or join Seacret without having to harass anyone.
I mean think about that for a second..
You never have to send those nasty message again, yet people find YOU and constantly have your inbox full of people who want to talk to you, buy from you, and join you.
That’s my inbox in just the last 12 hours…
It can be the same for you too.
If you want to know how I am able to combine saying the right things to the right people AND being found by wanting eyes, I’ll reveal it all.
If you want me to mentor you and help walk you through the process step by step, I’ll be your guide.
Because my time is finite I can’t work with everyone, so if you’re serious act fast.
No, that’s not a clever marketing trick. I enjoy my free time.
Develop a champions mindset.
Surround yourself with people who will only take you higher.
Learn how to not only say the right things but be positioned in front of the right people and you will be a recruiting superstar.
