When asking this question, why network marketers don’t get referrals? We don’t mean that none get referrals (if that makes sense), but we have found that many network marketers make these two common mistakes that prevent people from wanting to open up their network to them.
What do you think these mistakes are? Is it that we are not specific enough in telling people what an ideal referral is? Or is it that we simply do not ask for the referral? These two points are true, in the fact that these are also reasons why network marketers don’t get referrals.
Recently, Adam and I each had an experience that gave us a lightbulb moment. We realized that this is a common mistake that will scare people away from referring people. In the video, we talk about people either losing confidence or gaining confidence to refer through their own experience in being exposed to your business. It’s all about how they feel while you are “guiding them through your system”.
We also admit that we have been guilty of making these two mistakes. We are also guilty of teaching these methods to our teams. Experience has made us so much wiser. We believe that these two mistakes stem from the pressure within network marketing to rank advance fast, bonus fast, go full-time fast. Everything we do has a pressure of doing it FAST. Sometimes, this pressure causes network marketers to treat people like numbers.
We must always remember that being respectful of the relationship and treating people, like, people is the most important thing to remind ourselves when we work our businesses. Network marketing allows us to help people more than any other industry, and when helping people is the center of your motives, people will trust you and bring referrals to you.
