If you’ve been in the network marketing industry for any period of time, you have probably seen a pattern develop when it comes to MLM leads. A pattern that you have already followed yourself. A new person joins your team, then either you or your upline tell them to pitch the opportunity to their warm market (friends and family)…one, maybe two people join from that group…
They look at you like, “What’s next?”
You see, after someone has pitched your opportunity to their friends and family, YOU MUST have a valid system in place for getting them a stead stream of qualified prospects to talk to or…
And it usually only takes about 60 to 90 days for that to happen. The initial buzz of joining a new opportunity has worn off and the reality is setting in that it’s going to take some work to make money.
And this is where most upline leaders tell you to buy MLM leads or learn to generate them yourself. Both are no easy task.
You see, you can probably find at least 200 different companies selling MLM leads online. Do you really think all are created equal? The sad truth is that most of these companies are selling dead-end leads who thought they were signing up to win a free iPad or something…next thing they know they’re getting calls from you and 20 other reps asking if they want to start a home business.
Which usually means they probably hang up on you when you call. It sucks and will drain the life out of you.
The other option that I mentioned earlier is to learn how to generate your own, with the idea of getting free MLM leads. But, if you’ve been around the block once or twice, you know NOTHING in this life is free, right?
I’m not being jaded here, just realistic.
There is a tremendous learning curve involved in teaching others how to generate their own leads. People have to learn how to create videos, start a blog, create landing pages, etc. Much more than most new people would be willing to learn.
SO, … if you’ve made it this far in this article, you’re probably wondering, “Okay genius, then what’s the answer???”
The answer is that you, or your upline need to develop a system that works for the beginner. A system that is plug-n-play where all they have to do is pull out their credit card and buy into a marketing co-op and the hard part of generating the MLM leads will be done for them.
Because your team is MORE THAN willing to spend money to grow their business…IF…they think it will work. It would be hard to get a $40,000/month team marketing co-op going within 3 to 6 months if you had a growing team.
Can you imagine $40,000 of other people’s money being spent to #1 Grow their business, but also at the same time #2 Growing YOUR business for you?
If you aren’t doing marketing co-ops right now, you are missing the boat with every second that passes. But you don’t have to necessarily be the one that runs them. If your upline offers a team marketing system and co-ops, then become the BIGGEST promoter of those co-ops. Every time someone in your downline purchases a share, think of it as money being spent to grow your business for you.
If you are looking for a powerful example of this kind of system, click on the banner at the top of this page. I have spend thousands of dollars, and hundreds of hours creating just such a system for my team. A system that is easy for the newbie to use and that puts quality MLM leads at their finger tips as soon as they are ready to use them to market their business.
