Beware of the ‘Big Special Deal’ in Network Marketing a Lesson from Eric Worre

It would sound better if I told you that I have made great decisions 100% of the time during my four years in the home-based business industry. But as you know, I am all about keeping things real with you at all times. So, I must confess that I have fallen for the “big deal” twice and I am going to share those stories with you here. Before I do, I want to share a valuable lesson that I learned from my first network marketing mentor Eric Worre.

I entered into network marketing for the first time in 2008 with Agel Enterprises, where I met Eric Worre, Randy Gage, and Randy Schroeder… I know that is quite an impressive field leadership team. Early in my experience I flew to Los Angeles to attend an Agel event hosted by Eric Worre, during his opening comments he made a revealing statement that I remember as if I heard it just yesterday.

So what was the big revelation? Eric said “every time I hear about the ‘big special deal,’ I know that the end is near.”

I heard what was said but I didn’t really accept it as true, so along my journey over the past four years I have been seduced twice by the tempting and all too good to be true ‘opportunity’ and I want to share my experience with you to help you learn from my mistakes.

MLM Mastermind Training Plus 200 Leads a Day Formula

Loyalty is high on my list of values and as a result I have enjoyed many long-term relationships in business. One of my longest standing in the home based business industry is with Robert Blackman the owner of Profit Leads, Inc. I began purchasing leads from Robert in 2008 and although Profit Leads is not the only source where I acquire quality opportunity seeker and networker leads, it is among my most highly recommended because Robert makes it easy and cost effective to recruit new members daily.

The Profit Leads program has been completely revised to address the biggest problem in network marketing and direct sales… lead poverty! The great majority of network marketers do not have enough leads coming in to grow their businesses and create significant incomes. Every business builder who has the desire to make 3 to 5 quality daily presentations for their business to qualified prospects should take action on this three part formula for recruiting success.

Have you or someone you care about had your retirement plans significantly altered by recent economic conditions, losses in the stock market, insolvent pension plans, layoffs, or business closures?

Yanik Silver’s Maverick Entreprenuer Day 4: Why Should a Customer Purchase Your Products or Services?

Thank you for joining me for day four of our 35 day journey together! Today we are going to answer the question WHY? Why should a prospect decide to join your team? Why should a customer purchase your products or services? Rule #2 addressed the need to provide value 10 times to 100 times greater than any price you charge for your products and services. Rule #3 suggested that you must charge a premium price to create a margin to provide sufficient resources to provide extraordinary service. Rule #4 suggest we step into your prospects or customers shoes and answer the questions they may ask which lead to their decision to work with you, buy from you, or continue looking for alternatives.

Maverick Entrepreneur Rule #4: “Provide a “Reason Why” customers should do business with you and pay you a premium.”

Yanik Silver’s Maverick Entreprenuer Day 3: Why You Must Charge a Premium Price

Thank you for joining me for day three of our 35 day journey! We are going to expand on the previous post exploring rule #2 “Strive to create 10 times to 100 times in value for any price you charge….” In my mortgage banking business I made a conscious decision to focus on the middle to high end market based on my desire to serve a client base that would recognize and be willing to pay for a premium service. The mortgage banking business is highly competitive and at the lower end of the market it is viewed as a commodity with borrowers searching for the lowest interest rate and fees and mortgage lenders serving those markets too eager to cut their margins to win the transaction. I have always viewed this approach as short sighted and I had no interest in competing based on lowest price.

Warm Marketing or Cold Market Recruting: Why the Silly Debate?

A big movement underway to re-brand network marketing to bring the profession into the mainstream and change misconceptions of the people and companies in our profession; this movement must include a set of best practices that includes the manner in which we recruit prospects into our opportunity. I network with a large number of MLM distributors often becoming engaged in conversations related to their businesses and that of their down lines concerning “warm market” vs. “cold market” prospecting; I have had several spirited conversations with experienced marketers and new marketers alike leading me to conclude that this debate is just plain silly.

Prospecting Using Your Company Replicated Website

The majority of the better networking marketing companies in our profession offer replicated websites for their distributors. The quality of these sites are quite good and it would be impossible for the independent distributor to create sites of such quality on their own. I highly recommend taking full advantage of these sites as long as you include one specific action. Forget this and the site will be comparatively useless for prospecting new team members online.

In this video I will explain how I accidentally discovered the key to leveraging your company replicated website to enroll new team members into your business. It is a short video but provides a great marketing tactic.
