MLM Prospecting-The 7 Key Traits You Look for in a HOT MLM Lead
MLM Prospecting is a tough business if you do not know who you are looking for, and what they need to succeed in MLM. And it never fails -- Time and time again. Over and Over. Just like clockwork. You can almost predict it.
How many times have we been talking to someone, and they sign up, and we get all excited--and we wait. And we wait. And we wait. And then we wait some more, for them to show any true interest in this business. And then we keep waiting till we get discouraged.
Sound familiar? What went wrong? How did we blow it? We spent all that time to recruit them and they don't do SQUAT! What happened?
Sometimes we are more interested in recruiting someone than actually qualifying them to see if they really have a chance of success in MLM. Have you ever done that?
You cannot PUSH a ROPE. "That dog ain't gonna hunt" is a saying we have here in Dallas. Some "dogs" simply never get off the porch when it comes to taking action in their life!
So what do you do? How can you at least maximize your odds for finding the people who will be "More Likely" to be serious about this MLM business than not? Good Question!
I had the honor of being in the Financial Services industry before I discovered network marketing, and was blessed with being the only person in the history of the agency (92 years) to ever win a fast start award that the company had. I worked hard, and many long hours. But I was shown an amazing secret to defining the right prospects that made a HUGE difference in my success. (Financial Service reps are GREAT prospects for this business!)
A multi-million dollar earner in investments gave me what we call the "7 Star Formula" that defined who was more likely to do business with you than not, and I stuck to it and it worked. I brought it into the MLM business with me and lo and behold it worked great! And I have also now seen it in other places in the industry, so I know it has gotten some play in the marketplace. I cannot remember who authored it, but it's HOT!
Here it is:
The "7 Star Formula" is the 7 key Traits for the best Potential MLM Prospects you look for in a prospect. It can tell you a lot of how this person will work this business.
There is NO sure fire formula for this, as the secret to success in this business lies within the HEART. But it will help save you a lot of time that you might have wasted with the "Not Likely" to succeed people.
When you are recruiting folks look for these 7 things--and each one is worth 1 star. Add the stars up after rating a prospect, and the higher the number, the better the candidate.
1) 25 years or older.
3) Has a child.
4) Has a fulltime job.
5) Has a Bank Account.
6) Owns a Home.
7) Can afford to invest a little money in their business.
OK--Why these particular 7 things? Because they show 3 things about the prospect:
1) Solidity in their life
2) Obligation to the future
3) Strong Reasons to do better in Life
You are looking for the 5's, 6's, and 7's. But if you are talking to a 2 or a 3, well, that is your call, as there are broke people who have come into this industry and done amazing things. But they are the exception. Odds are they won't do a whole lot in Network Marketing.
If someone is 25 or older, it has been proven that they have taken MLM more seriously as a future. Yes, I know there are exceptions, and the Gen X folks are doing this business, but they are around 25 and up anyway.
If they are married, have kids, are working, own a home, and have a bank account, it shows they are probably MATURE enough to do this MLM business and RESPONSIBLE. These are KEY traits to successful folks in a home business.
Rate each prospect you have with this formula and work first with the ones who are 5-6-7 on the scale, and then call the others. You must call all the folks you know, as they will at least be willing to help you in some way. But understand--there are Potential STARS on your list. You now know how to Define the "More Likely" to succeed that will be really serious about this business. Plus you now know who will be "Less likely" to be interested as well.
Your names you have on your list are your inventory, and you build your success equity in your group with those names. Make sure you choose the inventory "More Likely" to build equity and success in your group, instead of ending up with total frustration and discouragement -- in MLM Prospecting and MLM Leads.

The MLM Business you are REALLY In.
MLM Pyramid Misunderstanding, Its Actually Inverted and Fair
Many people that bad mouth MLM industry use the pyramid structure to give impression that it's a scam type of business whereby the people at the top earn all the money while people at the bottom earns few hundred dollars. Can you spot something? I'll show you...
The Big Dream Life
It's 9:36 am when your eyes suddenly pop open. You sit up in bed with a smile on your face and thank God for all the many blessings he has given you and your family. After a yawn and a good stretch, you give your sleeping beauty (Wife) a kiss on the cheek then head to the kitchen. In no hurry, completely content and relaxed because you don't have the stress that 90% of America has called "A JOB". On the way to the kitchen, you find your little ones peeking around the corner in attempt to give Daddy a good morning "BOO". You decide to play along and act really surprised when they jump out even though this is the everyday routine. At this point, you see your wife walking down the hall with a smile on her face and greet her good morning with another kiss. You have breakfast with your family then head to the office (first door to the left). You check a few emails make a few calls then call it quits for the day.
MLM, Pyramid Schemes, and Matrices
Have you ever wondered what the difference is? MLM operators claim they're not operating a pyramid scheme. Matrix and "forced matrix" operators claim that what they have is better than MLM. So what are the differences?Pyramid Schemes:Pyramid Schemes are illegal in the USA, and probably abroad. We all know how these schemes work, or at least get the jist of the idea. A person (the originator) starts by sending a message to several people. Usually people he/she knows. The message in some round about way, will tell everyone to send him $5 or so...and then send the message to someone else. All the while adding names to the list, and each new recipient must send money to the first person, second person...etcThere are a million variations of the Pyramid Scheme, but the main attribute that define a pyramid scheme ( also known as chain letter) is that there is no product, it's just people sending money. The term "Pyramid Scheme" is derived from the fact that it starts with one and the size of those involved increases as you move towards the bottom. On paper, it looks like the shape of a triangle, or pyramid.Multi Level Marketing:How is MLM different from a pyramid scheme? After all, on paper any MLM looks like a pyramid in reality right? The differences are very simple. In MLM there is a product being sold. Income is generated from "commissions". It's actually a pyramid scheme, except that the participants get something back...regardless of whether the people they refer actually pay for something...In MLM, the participant always gains from their investment. The catch is in the value of the product that the participant receives. This is the reason that MLM is so big on the internet. Because, information can have a monetary value, and it cost the distributor nothing. So ebooks, software, newsletters...etc... these are the most common products used in MLM. MLMers have added tangible products as well, and home products were the first to use MLM as a primary marketing strategy.The Forced Matrix:With so many MLM programs on the market these days, originators have tried to make their programs more desirable than others. Hence the forced matrix idea. In a regular MLM program, your monetary gains are based entirely on how good you are at marketing the program. However, most people arent' very good. So it would benefit the less talented if they had help from the talented. Basically, if the number of people who can join under you is limited in any way...then it's a forced matrix. The idea being, anyone else you refer extra..will go under someone else. The best implementations put the extra person under one of the people YOU have under YOU. Hence it helps the person under you, which helps you too.The term is tossed around a bit, and sometimes not used at all. However, that is what defines a forced matrix. Sometimes numbers are used to describe a forced matrix more thoroughly....like "4 X 4 forced matrix" for instance. Which might mean that you can only have 4 people directly under you and only 4 people under those 4 who you recieve commissions from.There is a hi-bred idea that has become common now, where by a person can deliberately place a referral in another line of their choice. A sort of traffic control attribute that helps originators get their referrals interested. This has been an attempt to make regular MLM more appealing, and it has worked. In fact, forced matrix MLMers have even implemented the option in their own programs.The benefits of either are about equal. With a forced matrix, you stand to earn an income faster, but increases in income are slower because your referrals get forced further down the line from you. With regular MLM you have a stronger base, and sustaining it is generally easier...but first profits can be slow. If you want a little income faster, go with a forced matrix. If you want BIG profits and are willing to work a long time for it, go with regular MLM programs.
