MLM-Posture-Image-Post-2Welcome to another episode of Driving with Nick Pratt. In this episode I am going to be talking about the importance of having good posture with building your affiliate marketing business, your top tier or direct sales business. I am going to be explaining the importance of it, and I am also going to be giving you some tip on the kinds of things I do with talking to people and having good posture.

First of all, I want to explain what having a good MLM posture means. What it means is, if you’re in network marketing or your building a top tier or something like that, you’re going to be talking to people. There are going to be people who will be raising their hands, and they are going to want to be talking to you about the possibility of working with you.

When you’re doing this, you need to make sure that you don’t come across as a typical desperate, needy network marketer home business owner.

It’s really important because if you’re desperate, if you’re in any kind of sales where you’re talking to people, it’s not attractive and it’s not good for you either.

I don’t think I’ve ever acted in a desperate way, even when I wasn’t doing very well in home business. I understand that a lot of people do.

I want to explain some key points.

It’s about the language you use. I’ve got one thing for you to say when you’re talking to someone that can really help. This is something I learned from Cesar Rodriguez actually. If you’re talking to someone about potentially working with you in a business opportunity, say something like this. “This may or may not be a good fit for you,” or “feel free to check it out.”

MLM-Posture-Image-Post-1Listen to the language in that. It sounds very detached from the outcome. You have to be detached from the outcome. A good quote is to “Be married to the process, and divorced from the outcome.” When you’re talking to someone, you shouldn’t act as if it all depends on them joining your business. You’re the one that has something of value to offer. If you’re selling your business opportunity or your top tier, you have something incredibly valuable to offer them that will really help them move forward, so definitely don’t act desperate. Use better language.

The other thing to do is not to be in a hurry to get the sale, because people really don’t like that either. Don’t act as if someone has got to say yes and join your business on the very day you talk to them. Space things out a little bit. That’s exactly what I do. I understand that most people will not want to join on the first time I talk to them. What I do is I schedule time to follow up with them, and I give them some assignments of watching a video of a presentation. I follow up at the scheduled time, and I definitely follow up. Don’t be in a hurry.

Let me give you an example of a situation I had the other day. This is relating to not putting up with people being rude to you in your business.

Basically, I had a guy who I was talking to on Facebook, and I had given him a video to watch, I had told him about my success stories, and he could watch the video, I told him it may or may not be a fit. He came out with a lot of things that really showed red flags. He kept saying things like “Are you going to do this for me?” “Are you going to do that for me?” “Why should I believe what you’re saying?” I gave him a bit of a chance, I told him that the things he was saying were a bit strange and a bit rude, I haven’t heard this from people before.

But I eventually blocked him, because I didn’t want to work with this person. I had 15 other people I was talking to, and I don’t want to work with rude people.

One of the great things about home business is you get to decide who you want to work with. You don’t want to work with someone who is going to be rude, because they will be a nightmare for you in the future. You have to believe in abundance – there are going to be other people out there.

So that’s another example of having good posture – don’t put up with bad behavior.

If someone is being irrational and rude, you’ve got to tell them that they aren’t a good fit with what you’re offering, and walk away. I had to block this guy on Facebook because he was being a nuisance. But I gave him a chance.

I realize that there is a lot more I could say to this, but if you need any more advice, be sure to add me to Facebook and ask me your questions.
