We have all been there when we start something new and want to share it with everyone on the planet. There was a time when we thought others we knew that trusted us wouldn’t mind if we shared information about a new project we were working on in the hopes that they too would be just as excited.

One makes plans to get every one of their friends and family involved in their new adventure. One says to themselves, “if I just get the information in front of them they will use my product or service because it’s me offering the shiny new object to them.”  In the beginning, did you think the same thing when you started your MLM business? Lol, I believe we have all done that as if our personalities are so amazing we could hypnotize them to joining us. That is not the process.

I’m sure you have come to realize that friends and family will not help you become that millionaire; they will support with helping you get started, but that’s about it.

Now, that you’ve been in business for a while I’m sure you have started to recognize some of the tactics newbies are using to get their products/services in front of the warm/cold market. In the last couple of years on social media (Facebook) I’ve noticed that random people will send friend requests. In this case, if I don’t know the person I will scan their profile to see if we have mutual friends, the content that is present on their page before I accept. Content (what you're posting) more than anything is essential to me because I want to ensure that I am connecting with someone who is positive, who provides value to others, that will inspire and pour into someone else's life.

I have realized though, that some not all, will request friendship for the sole purpose to add you to their group or a friend’s group before you even have an opportunity to get to know them. I was added to hundreds of groups that I didn’t request membership to, tagged in posts to my wall with products I don’t represent (this happened with those I share mutual connections with). So, I’ve decided to provide a few tips if you want to add a new contact to your groups.


  • Find areas of interest you have in common
  • Send a message request first
  • Be upfront about your intention
  • Introduce yourself explaining why you’re reaching out
  • Provide value; explain why becoming apart of your community would BENEFIT the other person
  • ASK FOR PERMISSION to add them to your group


If you follow these few tips, you will have a positive outcome giving the other person the opportunity to decide whether joining your group would be a good fit for them. Sometimes one can sabotage themselves by blindly adding people to their groups. If you happen to add another person in business for themselves, don’t be surprised if they promote their product/service in your group because you added them without permission. You never know, if you approached the other person professionally, they likely would have checked it out.

Go back and re-evaluate your strategies; is your group growing or are people leaving due to blindly being added? Me personally, if you add me to a group without my permission, I click to leave the group button and check the box to ensure no one can add me back to that specific group. Some of the groups were products I was interested in but not interested in doing business with the person who added me after 3 minutes of me accepting their friend request.

Building rapport with a new connection is always essential even if one doesn’t purchase from you, but could, in turn, be an excellent contact for referrals and vice versa. Remember, people will buy from you because of the trust and relationships you have built with them.
