It’s not too late to mend those fences with family and friends if you’ve burnt them to the ground because you aggressively approached them about your business or down-right spammed them. In this blog post I will share with you a couple of super simple things you can do today to help those you’ve put-off actually take an interest in your network marketing business.
Say You’re Sorry, Without A Pitch
The last thing you want to do is follow an apology with another pitch. DO NOT say this: “Hey there. I wanted to say that I am sorry for the way I approached you about my business, but it’s absolutely exploding and you really don’t want to miss out on this”.
The point of apologizing to anyone for anything is being genuine. Saying sorry and immediately following that with yet another pitch is only going to look bad on you. Do you think they are actually going to feel that you meant what you said? No. They’re going to see an ulterior motive to that apology. It just won’t work. And you can forget ever having their support for anything you do in the future.
Instead, SAY THIS: “Hey there. When I started my business I came at you extremely hard, and I want to apologize. I was so new to this and had no idea what I was doing. I hope you will accept my apology. My relationship with you means more to me than any business”.
There’s no catch. There’s no “I told you that I would be successful but you didn’t believe me!” You never want to play the “I told you so” card, even if you HAVE had amazing success and they really DID miss out by not joining you. You just don’t say that to them. They are going to SEE your success all on their own…you don’t have to throw it in their face.
It’s not the network marketing industry that is at fault for the way people feel about it. It’s the marketers who are chasing, bugging, begging, and spamming that give this industry a bad name. Treat this profession the way it deserves to be treated by being postured, confident and with a “I don’t care who joins me or doesn’t join me” attitude, and people will automatically be attracted to that.
Find New People
