Today I want to spend a little time talking about something I see quite often with network marketing representatives that have not taken time to fully develop their marketing skills.

If you have been in the network marketing industry as long as I have then you are sure to run across people that will pitch their multilevel marketing (MLM), direct selling, or network marketing business opportunity to you.

I get contacted almost daily by people asking me to take a look at their products or join their business opportunity.

Here is a small sample of non-edited (misspelled words and all) messages I have received in the past through social media or email:

quoteHey Charles, I just want to start off by saying thanks for accepting me I really appreciate it, ____here, I’ve been checking out your post for quite a while and I am amazed at you’re work, I’m working on a project called wakeupnow and I’m looking to partner up with business professionals, this goes well with your current opportunitie, there is incredible money on the table, are you open to other options outside of your current business?

And another…

quoteHello Charles glad to see you earning a good income working online. I would love to build you a 2nd income and I would do all the recruiting and building if you are busy with other projects. Just join and send me your link and I will place people under you. I can recruit enough people where you earn a minumum of $600-$2500 or more. I have built a few large teams. Watch this Video. Cost $100 to join

And one more,

quoteI checked out your websites and they look good. I’m not sure if you’ve heard of EPX Body yet, but we are experiencing phenomenal growth. We’re the #1 Home Based Business in Npros and on If you would like to take a look at it, let me know what you think.

My question to you is, why should I join your business opportunity?

More importantly, why should I join your business opportunity under YOU??

What makes you different from the thousands of others promoting your business?

What are you offering me to join under you? Do you have some special training or a proprietary (marketing) system?

Think about it, 100 or marketers pitching the same or very similar lines to me daily. Stuff like this…

quote…create a 6 figure income, great leadership, stable company, ground floor opportunity, blah, blah, blah

But most of you are missing the point…

If I want to make the 6 figure income you keep telling me about with your company I could just join up under one of the leaders of the company, right?

The problem with this approach is that it attracts naive desperate people that also think there success lies in joining a good opportunity,

What Happens When You Do This?

…well, you may initially have some short term success by promoting your business opportunity to some gullible people.

I don’t know about you but I don’t want to build my business with a bunch of lazy, naive, gullible people that are not willing to do any work…

I want to build my business with motivated hardworking people and this strategy/approach doesn’t attract those type of people.

house-made-of-moneyWhen you use this approach you are building your business like a house of cards.

The slightest little thing can make it topple at any point.

Once these naive people realize that building a business is actually work, that it actually takes dedication, commitment, motivation or learning new skills…things will start to unravel,

…and once a card starts to fall very soon after the whole thing is going to come crashing down.

That is exactly what happens in most people’s organizations because they don’t attract the right people.

So have I described you? Are you this person?

This strategy is typical in the industry

…and we wonder why after 90 days people quit.

REMEMBER, in this business people join people not systems not until you TRULY get that I mean really get it then your business is going to suffer.
