Looking After A New MLM Member
By: Michael Brymer
I got a new member, now what?
Imagine if you suddenly got a job in some very busy company but you know nothing about the job!
You are sitting there and everyone around you is busy but you don't know what to do!
You are smiling, giving out greetings and thinking, "I'm in the wrong place, I should go back to my old job, my old friends told me not to go!"
Then suddenly someone comes up to you and gives you something easy to do. Something you can handle. What a relief! When you've done that you get another little job to do, the instructions are crystal clear and you do it.
You learned a bit, you did it and as a result you have confidence.
New MLM members are the same. They are all excited with no-where to go except backwards!
Give each new member a job to do, an easy job, build their confidence and fan the fire.
Now imagine a guy called John, smooth looking, great suit, nice guy.
He tells you he is going to the party. He can't believe you didn't know about the party! There are always fun things to do there, great people to meet. The food is the best anywhere. The scenery, WOW, it's a beautiful beach covered in beautiful people, it's the tropics! A place where no one really knows the time, not to mention the day of the week.
The only thing that worries them is the possible effects of the sea breeze on their hard disk. It's the local joke. "How would you like your hard disk?" "Salty thanks".
Now, of course you want to go there! John offers to take you there, but no, you wanted to look confident in front of John and told him you would just see him there.
You don't. Why? Because you have next to no idea of how to get there except talk to ask someone you know and for some non financially sound reason trust.
You ask a work friend, your good friend, and they say "What are you talking about! You are not going to any party and leaving me and the reasonable safety of a 9 to 5 job! You can't do anything better than me! I'd feel worse off! Anyway that's all just a rip-off!"
You ask another non party goer friend and they tell you, "The road there is too rocky, you'd never make it, many have tried and died".
You want to get there but you are now not only unsure of the way, your close friends are telling you not to go! What should I do? Trust my close and dear friends or John? Who is really trying to help me? Who will help me when the bills pile up?
Are my best friends my BEST friends?
List your five best friends, find out their yearly income. Add the five incomes and then divide that figure by five. You now have the average income of your five best friends.
Then you notice something amazing!
The average income of your five best friends is your yearly income ! Now you are really understanding the effects of some friends.
To get a better income, you may need better friends, or at least spend more time with different people.
Now where is that nice guy John!? I know he's making it big and he was willing to teach me the way.
Show your members the first few steps, don't let them out of your sight, they WILL wonder off. When they have walked those steps, show them the next few steps. Then the next! Take them as far as it takes for them to be able to see the rest of the way by themselves.
Perhaps a new member is like a puppy, he'll go to anyone with a soft voice until he gets old enough and smart enough to know who is who and where home really is.
