I’ll be honest. Network marketing is a hard business to be in! So many people have a negative attitude towards it and it’s difficult to talk to them. Especially when it is friends and family! You want to tell them about your new business that you are super excited about, but you don’t want them to judge you or discourage you. Friends and family are the hardest people to talk to about your business. So how do you do it?
Make Sure They Know Exactly What You’re Doing
Sometimes I beat around the bush when I’m talking to a friend about what I’m doing with my network marketing business. “So you I started teaching essential oil classes. I am now a part of this awesome company… and uh yeah! I would love to tell you more about it… so give me a call sometime?” Oh no…. this is not the way to do it. I did this for awhile and then came to the realization that my friends are the ones that I want to help the most! So why wouldn’t I share this with them?
Tell them exactly what you are doing. What are you promoting? Are you hosting classes? How much time are you putting into it? Why are you doing it?
Tell Them Why You Are Passionate About it
Instead of just inviting them to a class or party tell them why you are passionate about the products you are promoting. What makes the products so great that you decided to spend all your free time promoting it?
Here is a general example of what I like to say when explaining my business to friends: “Essential oils have changed my life and I really want to show you how they can change yours. I am really passionate about natural living and I don’t’ want to hide it! I’m not just trying to sell you something. I really care.”
Erase Their Fears of Network Marketing
“Yeah I just joined a network marketing company!” “Oh… that’s cool…” And then you feel super awkward and move on to the next subject. It’s really discouraging when a friend or family member reacts weirdly when you tell them about your new business that you are really excited about. But you must understand that they just don’t get it! You have to explain to them that “network marketing” is not a dirty word.
Share with them what it is, how you truly believe it will work and how you are working your bootie off to grow your business. It’s not a get rich quick scheme or a Pyramid scheme. It’s a way to work hard and make real money. Check out this article if you want to learn more in depth why Multi-level marketing is not a scam.
If They Say No, Move on
It’s hard when you’re close ones act like they don’t care or straight up tell you they are not interested. Do not take it to heart! Only 10% of the people you talk to will say “yes”. That 90% that will say “no” will be your family members and friends! Keep working your tail off and show them that you can make it.
I heard once that it’s the hardest to share your business with friends and family because it’s hard for them to accept change. Even though they might be excited for you, it’s hard for them to accept.
In summary, tell you friends and family about your business. You want them to know what you are passionate about and what you are doing with your life. If they seem like they don’t care or say “no” move on! Don’t take it to heart. When you are very successful they will wish they listened to you in the first place. 😉
I challenge you to call up a friend today that you haven’t really explained your new business with. Tell them what it is, why are you passionate about it, and remove their fears of network marketing.
