5 Ways to Get Your Prospect’s Attention with Proper Posture

Have you ever felt you wanted to quit your business because no one seemed interested?

If prospect aren’t paying attention to you, could it be that you are coming across a little needy, or even desperate? Think of a friend who is needy and always asking for things… Are you inclined to give him your time and attention? Do you even respect him? Most likely not.

Unfortunately, that’s what many network marketing distributors do—and why they fail. In order to be successful at sponsoring, you must have posture. Once you have posture, prospects will respect you more.

Here are 5 ways you can get prospects to start paying attention to you.

1 – Be Confident

Posture starts with your vision of success and the confidence you display.

In September 2004 I attended my first company convention and walked into a stadium packed with over 10,000 distributors! I was shocked… I couldn’t believe it.

I was struggling and could barely find people who were interested in hearing my presentation. It seemed like NO ONE in the world was interested in MLM at the time. And yet, inside this stadium, there were more than 10,000 people who were doing network marketing—and had invested money to attend an event!

I asked myself, “Where in the world did they find these people?!!” That’s when I had a big aha-moment.

All these people could have been in my downline! I could have networked my way or ran ads to find them, but I didn’t because I wasted my time on poor prospects or trying to motivate downlines that never did anything.

If you read the stories in Networking Times or listen to some of the interviews on MLM NATION, you’ll realize that most of these top earners were open to opportunity and ready for someone to sign them up. That means the next network marketing superstar could be walking in front of you right now. That alone should give you confidence.

Remember, there are billions of people in this world for you to talk to. Time is our ONLY limited resource. Even if you talk to 10 people a day, you won’t have enough days in your life to talk to and sign everyone up. Use your time wisely, because there are TONS of people out there who are hungry to join!

But you have to talk to them…

2 – You Don’t Need Them

What does it mean to have posture? My favorite definition of posture is, “You don’t need them; they need you!”

You have the best business and top quality products that can change someone’s life. Your prospects NEED YOU, but you don’t need them! Why? Because you have billions of people to talk to. You don’t need your prospect to join because you’ll never run out of prospects in this world. But your prospect only has YOU, because you are the one with the opportunity.

This simple shift in mindset will totally change you from being needy and desperate to someone who is confident and not afraid of rejection.

3 – Reject Them Before They Reject You

If your prospects are giving you a hard time, not paying attention, or having tons of objections, just take the business away from them.

Learn to say, “I hope you won’t be offended, but you don’t seem to be the person we’re looking for. Maybe we can stay in touch and things will change 6 months from now.”

Bam! Reject them before they reject you!

If they end the meeting, that’s great because every bad prospect is stealing your time away from a good prospect. The interesting thing is that when you reject prospects, some may immediately start paying attention to you! Most people don’t like it when they have things taken away from them.

4 – Don’t Talk Too Much

When you talk too much, you sound needy and nagging. Instead, learn to listen more and use tools to do the presentation. The more you talk, the needier and more desperate you sound.

Most distributors spend WAY TOO MUCH TIME with their prospect. They let presentations drag on and on. Or they won’t hang up the phone until the prospect commits.

When you speak less, this leads to the last way to get prospects to pay attention to you.

5 – Always Be In a Hurry

Desperate distributors make themselves available to present any minute at any notice. I’ve seen some distributors run to their car so they can immediately present to a cold market stranger they just met in the grocery line!

Why is this bad? Because people are always buying YOU!

Would you agree that people like to join successful people? What successful person do you know that has the time to spend all day talking to someone? Successful people are ALWAYS in a hurry because they’re always busy doing the things that make them successful.

When you make yourself available anytime or spend endless hours talking to prospects or downlines, you’re basically sending the signal to the world that you have nothing else to do, because you are NOT successful. So always be in a hurry!
