The Problems with Prospecting and Recruiting with Social Media – Success with Grazyna

The Problems with Prospecting and Recruiting with Social Media

Are you looking for more leads and customers for your Network Marketing business?

Do you want to learn how to prospect correctly to get a lot of leads, interested prospects, business builders and/or clients?

Do you want to learn how to get interested people to call you to find out about your products or your business opportunity?

Do you want to learn how to build your network marketing business without leaving your kids each night, without parties and even prospecting?

I am sure you are. All business owners are.

My upline told me to make a list of my family and friends and just find 6 like minded people and then tell those people to find their 6-like minded people… and my business will be built.

I thought it would be easy.

I found out is not easy to find those like-minded people.

  • My family and friends were laughing at me that I was so naive, and that it is not possible to make money in this scam and that I should concentrate on my career.  
  • My friend Joan told me that her friends stopped answering the phone when she called them.
  • My other friends Cari and her husband Whit who were living in a small place in Utah were leaving their kids with Cari's parents each weekend and were driving 3 hours each way to prospect and most of the times they came back with no leads at all. They were ready to quit.
  • I decided to use marketing company to help me and I bought supposedly pre-qualified leads and started calling them to find out that nobody wanted to talk to me. I was yelled at and it all made me feel low and very bad.
  • I finally decided to advertise on the Facebook, but I have no idea how to do it effectively and I lost a lot of money and had no results.

Finally, I learned how to prospect and recruit properly and my business started to grow very fast.

I could help myself, my team and I can help you….to prospect correctly, recruit business builders and find customers for your products.

The most common questions I get from my team are:

“Where do I find my prospects?” and

“How can I convince them to join my business or buy from me?”

Here is what I tell them…

People are everywhere. You can find them in stores, at parties, networking events, at work, at conferences and online, but one of the most important skills that you need to learn is...

How to Prospect Correctly

We need to remember that we are not in a business to convince people, but rather to find the right people who need what we have to offer.

Remember that people like to buy, and they like to make money, but they do not like to be sold to.

I’ve built a 6-figure income offline and I’ve also spent many thousands of dollars on Facebook advertising, so I have a lot of experience that I would like to share with you.

The Wrong Way to Prospect

Let me start from this example:

Have you ever been at a party, conference or networking event and you met a person that literally after 30 seconds after shaking hands is trying to pitch you his or her services or products and trying to set up an appointment with you?

How did you feel?

I am sure you wanted to run away and tried to avoid this person as much as you could, right?

I know… everybody has had that type of experience.

Nobody likes that person.

You may also open your phone and find tons of texts from people you don’t even know offering you their services or promising you a “Fantastic Business Opportunity”.

What do you do?

Well… that what we all do …DELETE.

A Good Way to Prospect

Just imagine you meet a completely different girl. Let’s say her name is Mary. You shake hands and you ask each other what we do and let’s say she is a wellness coach.

Let’s say you make a comment that your mother has a problem with her knees. She might need to have a knee replacement.

Mary might say that there is a natural product that may help her to rebuild that knee and she may avoid having a surgery and she gives you a website and tell you to check it out. She may add that she has actually seen many people having great results.

Then Mary changes the subject and starts to ask other questions about your kids or your hobbies and tries to learn more about who you are and what you like to do …

How does that make you feel?

Great, right?

You and Mary become friends. Then you may go home, check the website she recommended and if you feel it could help your mother you could choose to call Mary for more information. It will be a pleasure to talk to her again, right?

No matter what, she may buy it or not, you will have another friend that you like to be around and that is very valuable.

One day you might meet somebody who is in pain and you may refer this person to Mary and she can have a new customer or business builder.

This is the right way to prospect.

Make a new friend first…. This applies for prospecting offline as well as to prospecting online.

There is a VERY fine line between recruiting with social media and spamming people.

I’m sorry to say that most network marketers have been turned into human spam bots by their upline and company leaders…

‘Disposable distributors’ tasked with the job of spreading the word about their company’s products or opportunity, at the expense of the individual’s reputation and risking the suspension of their social media accounts.

Successful entrepreneurs and networkers alike eventually learn the true secret to success and it becomes the foundation upon which their entire prospecting, recruiting and business building strategy is founded.

That secret being:

“People don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care” – Theodore Roosevelt

It’s about actually caring about people, becoming a person of value and being someone uniquely positioned to help someone with their problems.

That last one is critical “uniquely positioned to help someone with their problems.”

I know some very skilled recruiters who are excellent at online prospecting, but just like offline prospecting, they’ve devoted the time and effort to learn this very difficult skill and have mastered it. And if that’s the strategy you want to deploy, you need to do it right or else!

If you’re still a little fuzzy on whether you are a spammer or not, here’s a guide of sorts…

Top 5 Warning Signs That Your Prospecting Efforts are Actually SPAM

  •  You first private message to a stranger on social media includes a link to join your opportunity.
  • You get angry replies via private messaging and/or you have been reported as a spammer.
  • You post links to your opportunity or website in the comments section of other people’s social media posts
  •  You compulsively want to talk about your company or products, without anyone asking you to share.

Finally… this one is the most important one…

  •  You engage in interactions online, with a hidden agenda, hoping to transition the topic to something that would get people interested in your opportunity, without caring about knowing the other person.

This last one for me is a big one but could also be controversial.

After all, the last one is the very definition of prospecting (online or offline), which even when done right… can still feel awkward, result in people getting angry at you and very unleveraged, which is why I eventually decided to stop prospecting all together.

But here’s the interesting thing…

“When I Stopped Prospecting People, My Business Kept Growing!”

I can’t tell you how relieved and at peace I felt, when I once again, was able to go out with my friends, visiting a family member’s home or be in a public place without having to think about prospecting anyone.

Just enjoying being normal again, was incredible, after many years of being taught by my upline that “everyone was a prospect” and approaching every conversation with a hidden agenda, I was free!

At this point, you may be asking, then how the hell did your business grow?

Well before I answer that, I have to say that there are people who are very skilled prospectors and recruiters who completely disregard the issues I mentioned above.

They knowingly and without shame, approach every interaction with a stranger as a prospecting opportunity.

Getting yelled at or cursed out by prospects is no big deal, as long as some people say ‘yes.’

And just like doing it right offline, there’s a way to successfully do it online as well. After learning and becoming very good at prospecting, I decided that I didn’t want to build my business this way.

The problem with prospecting in general, as it’s normally taught, is that the mindset going in, is still about what YOU want people to do and about manipulating people into doing what you want them to do.

In other words, it’s about YOU, not them. I didn’t like that, but I still did it for a little while… until I did find a better way.

The More Leveraged Alternative to 1-on-1 Prospecting, Which Won’t Make You Feel Like a Cheap Sales Man

Now, I am not trying to be high and mighty about all this prospecting stuff, because I’m not.

If it came down to feeding my family with ‘stone cold’ prospecting tactics or my kids starving, I choose stone cold prospecting every time, without remorse.

But the reason I was able to quit prospecting was because, with the help of some extraordinary mentors, I eventually discovered an online recruiting strategy, which…

enables us to recruit more people in 1 Day, than the most skilled recruiter in the world can do in 1 month.

We are able to passively generate leads, customers and new reps – even when we are out having fun with friends and family.

(Hence why we don't have to worry about prospecting them!)

Rather than spending hours spamming or private messaging people on social media, I learned how to legitimately get Facebook and other networks to actually help me attract the people who are most interested in what I have to offer, using their ads platform! (i.e. going legit!)

How would you like to be awaken each day to an email inbox full of notifications for new leads, new customers, new team members and commissions you earned while sleeping?

This strategy is called ‘attraction marketing’, which is an internet marketing strategy designed for networkers and people in direct sales!

You see, if your business depends on you being on social media, sending private messages or commenting on people’s posts all day, you are NOT doing internet marketing… despite what you may have been led to believe.

Online prospecting and internet marketing are NOT the same thing!

Internet marketing is a passive strategy, which works, even when you are not.

If you want to learn how it works, I actually reveal the entire strategy I’ve used, in a free 10-Day Online Recruiting Bootcamp available here.

You’ll also get more details about a book which  goes into the nuts n’ bolts of this unique recruiting & selling formula.

Now if traditional prospecting online or offline is your thing and you want to stick to that, by all means, go for it.

There are many top trainers in the industry that focus on cold market recruiting skills…

(And they do ‘attraction marketing’ too!)

For me, there was simply a certain way I wanted to live my life and that was more important.

I would much rather make a ton of money in my business first and then have my friends and family beg me to tell them more about it it.

It’s much better than begging my friends and family to join a business which isn’t making any money.

Which would you prefer?

Dr. Pajunen has a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and worked as a teacher while doing research at a university for 25 years. She liked the work but understood that to become financially independent she needed to work on developing a passive income. In 2004, Dr. Pajunen started her real estate investment business. She made money on each of the renovation projects, but there was always a risk. In 2010, she started a Social Networking business. It was at this time her husband had big discomfort in his shoulder due to his football career. The doctors gave him two possible solutions: the total reverse joint replacement or to live with discomfort to the end of his life. Instead, they found a third solution–a 100% natural product that released all discomfort and restored mobility in his shoulder. And as a side effect, it made him look much younger. This was a great opportunity for Dr. Pajunen to develop a business had the potential of a great residual income with much less risk than a real estate investment business. She has reached one of the highest levels of the company in just 2 years and she is a big advocate of building this business using Internet Marketing.
