The "social networking" black hole.

Social networking is huge. Millions of network marketers effectively avoid rejection, presentation, and personal contact with prospects by playing pen pal and moving pixels on their computer screens.

That's the good news.

The bad news is that their hours and hours of activity attract and target late-night computer-addicted, socially-challenged, lonely people. They end up emailing and playing pen pal with freebie-seeking, something-for-nothing, lottery-mentality prospects.

And even if they do occasionally sponsor one of these prospects, their new distributor will want to duplicate exactly how they were enrolled, finding other similar prospects on the Internet.

So how do we break this cycle?

One way is to take a viewpoint that the Internet is a great way to make the initial contact. Then, get back to network marketing basics by talking to the prospect personally by telephone, Skype, or in person. Network marketing is a person-to-person business.

Think of the Internet as a way to meet new people from around the world, 24 hours a day. Then, as soon as you can, get people off the Internet chat, autoresponders, landing pages, etc. - and into a real "live" quality conversation.

Great advice Marty. People join people not companies. to have a successful business we need to build a relationship with our associates. the only way to do that is to talk to them, find out what they need to be successful in their won right and help them achieve that. It's people helping other people. Much success to you Marty!

I love this blog! Your words are chock full of logic and common sense. I love the internet but it is a tool to use for the serious business person. The telephone is the closest we can get to people on a one on one basis. We are then able to illustrate that we're not avatars but real people. Agree with you all the way Marty.
ed Diop   729 day(s) ago
I agree! No matter what we do, we must never forget the basics...that is the foundation! Thanks for sharing and best wishes to you Marty!

I too believe that a personal touch is needed in business. People choose to work with/buy from people they know and trust the majority of the time. This is a great post Marty! Liked and will be sharing.
Carolyn Coleman-Grady    729 day(s) ago
Hey Marty nice blog. Thanks for sharing.
STARR WHITE   729 day(s) ago
Good Blog , In touch is priceless
Dennis Thorgesen   729 day(s) ago
Networking in the true sense of the word requires one on one conversation. Not high pressure sales, instead building trust and learning about other humans while they learn about you. We were amazed at the difference talking on the telephone has made. Selling is not what we are about when talking, we are searching for a need which we can fill.

Thanks for your IBO support Cheryl. Might be hard to do but it is definitely worth's a work in progress for me.
Cheryl Stephenson   729 day(s) ago
Great Blog, Marty!! Breaking that Cycle is going to be hard to achieve, but I believe you've got it down!!
