Success in MLM – Practice, practice, practice!
Have you ever asked why success in MLM seems so hard at times?
As most of you who read the blog know, not only do I often write the blog, but I spend time on the phone with many of you assisting in many different ways. As a result of that, I’ve learned we all have one thing in common that makes success in MLM often illusive.
The first most common error is that people don’t practice at all. The second is that they tend to practice until they think they can do it.
Recently, I was on a call that Tim gave and I heard him explain what it takes to truly achieve success. He said, “You have to practice until there is no chance that you could do it wrong EVER!”
When Tim said that it was like a revelation. I thought about all the times I had heard people say they liked what they learned from the CDs, but they hadn’t really done any role playing or they didn’t have the inviting scripts, or they hadn’t really ever tried to master it.
And with that came the thought: how about if I try to convince you all to really truly practice and to make that easy for you to do?
Well, that’s where I’m headed. At the end of this blog, I’m going to give somebody chance to win the Inviting Scripts.
And look what else, a cheat sheet. Here’s the inviting formula: practice those steps. And then practice them again. Then we you think you are pretty darned good at it, don’t stop. Practice some more, then get your friend to come over and do some role play. Then practice some more. You see — what does it take to NEVER DO IT WRONG?
Now of course that leaves Professional Inviter. Most of us have it and have listened to it. But when you find yourself in trouble, can you agree that you didn’t know it well enough to prevent the problem that you just made a mistake on?
Nearly everyone has it. They have even listened to it.
But as I listen more, I imagine how they would handle their prospects if they had actually practiced Professional Inviter – practice until the inviting formula is as natural as breathing.
Sure, she has the inviting formula memorized, but if I asked her to give me an example of how she would actually do a step, she would struggle.
The reason – she hasn’t practiced until she can’t get it wrong.
Tim relayed a story about a time when he trained someone who was reluctant to use the style Tim teaches in Professional Inviter.
The trainee was not willing to learn how to use the effective method Tim has developed through trial and error (until Tim just could not get it wrong).
Once he and Tim trained and practiced the formula, the trainee understood the importance of the reason behind the steps and why Tim trains it the way he does in Professional Inviter.
So, why do I hear stories about dis-interested leads from folks struggling to achieve success in MLM? The answer goes right back to not practicing each step of the inviting formula.
We could go through each step of the inviting formula here, but that is a distraction, and it would only be a repeat of learning (not my point).
My point is putting knowledge into action. While you may listen to Professional Inviter, if you don’t practice, you will go out and turn your prospect off with your words:
For example, if you say to them “I’d like you to get involved (in\with x)” the statement is far less intriguing than “I’m looking for the right person….” Tim has compiled a list of these types of statements and other powerful methods for inviting in his eBook “Tim Sales’ Inviting Scripts.”
The message I want each person to walk away with this week is: we can only have success in MLM if we have proper training and we actually practice the training until we cannot get it wrong.
