Let’s talk networking, marketing and sales shall we?! Because of the growth of MLMs, people think marketing, networking and sales is icky and gross and don’t want to be involved in it.
But literally EVERYTHING is networking and everything is sales! When @fitleahk and I were in the Bahamas we were taking photos and a man came over and started talking with us. We discussed where we were from, what we did for work, why we were there, etc. we had no clue who we were speaking with! Come to find out it was one of the owners! Imagine if we decided to not speak with him because we thought networking was gross!
People are irritated because of the amount of cold messages and cold sales calls, but let’s think back 20 years (even though this is still the practice in A LOT of businesses today). 20 years ago, salespeople would take out a phone book and start calling. Hell, 8 years ago I did door to door insurance sales. Literally COLD knocking on doors trying to sell people insurance! If you listen to The 10X Rule, @grantcardone speaks about still making sales calls. SALES IS LIFE! If you don’t want to sell, you will NEVER be successful.
Now there are definitely more successful ways to market, network and sell people, but stop thinking it is icky or wrong to build connections and relationships and ultimately sell people your services.
If you 10000% believe that what you are offering is something they need, it isn’t ‘selling’, it is providing them a solution to a problem. Something they need to succeed in an area of their life. And if they decide they don’t want it, it is okay! It isn’t personal, it isn’t about you, it doesn’t mean you suck.
So keep networking, keep marketing, learn to sell correctly, and ALWAYS ALWAYS ask for the sale! But appreciate the no’s and don’t take it personally!
