Network Marketing Tips: You Need The Phone
“You can do this business online or offline. I just don’t think you can do this business without the phone” – Ray Higdon (Click To Tweet This)
You cannot escape using the phone if you are serious about building a Network Marketing business, either online or offline.
I do both online and offline and I have to get on the phone with my leads, and qualify them, and invite them to see my business presentation.
So here are 4 simple tips to help you overcome phone fear:
1.Feel The Fear And Do It Anyway
– Just pick up the phone and start calling. You can create a simple script you can use. Be willing to make mistakes and fail forward. Just push through the fear and pick up the phone.
2.Do not try to close everyone
– This is a major mindset hack and one of the best Network Marketing tips I can give you on this. Recognize the fact that not everyone is a fit for your business. Focus on their problems and seeing if you can help them or not.
3.Do not be afraid to take it away-
When I am on the phone with my leads, I want to quicken my speed of disqualification. If my prospect isnt sounding energetic, or does not remember who I am, or is telling me they are too “busy” I can say something like “You know what, this is my number. If anything changes, do call me”, and then I hang up. I’m always the first to hang up…lol
4.Do not spend too much time on the phone.
5 minutes maximum is what I do. I start with a hello, then I introduce myself and tell them where I got their contacts, then I ease into trying to find out why they are looking at a home based business, and if It goes well, I invite them to a local business meeting or send them a video. I do not spend time entertaining questions and if the prospect is too pushy or aggressive or tries to take control, I invoke step 3.
