How to Handle This Specific Objection

10 replies
I am so fired up about objections and how to diffuse them in network marketing! I love hearing your ideas too on what to say and do!

So, let's discuss! What do you say to people when they say they can't join you in business because they don't have any friends?

Here's my two cents:
I like to hear why they don't think they have any friends. I try to listen and not talk.Then I ask them, if I can show you how you can uncover your hidden network, would you be interested in hearing more?

What are you nuggets?
Let's discuss!

    I would say . . . "Thank you, up front, for telling me you're not a good fit for network marketing. You have saved me time and money in my recruitment."

    Remember, friends don't let friends do MLM.

      Absolutely correct!

      Couldn't be more wrong. Some of my best friends thank God every
      day that I introduced them to MLM and mentored/coached them to
      success.

    Remember, friends don't let friends do MLM.
    Ahh...that explains it.

    That's a tough one for me personally. I have two reactions.

    One: Would you like to have some friends? Because this business is a great way to make friends.

    Two: Thanks for your time. Bye.

    Really just depends upon what I hear in their voice. If they sound/look good. Seem hungry, positive, upbeat, then I go with response One. If not, then they'll just looking for a way out, and I'll save us both time and let them take it.

    I say, "Awesome, that is the best part of joining a business with me...you don't have to know anyone. I will show you how to find prospects (for nearly free) and turn that 1 person into unlimited prospects and earn a full time income with our Retail to Recruit System."

    When someone approaches me, I always ask what is your system you use to recruit...get ready for the onslaught of can't work ideas or will only work if you have a massive following.

    Get a system that works for the average person and you will welcome a question that you pose. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    In all honesty, this person is probably just being nice. Move on to the next one. What they probably really mean is that they don't want to lose the friends they do have by annoying the bejesus out of them with MLM offers.

    They dont say anything to me, cause i'm not in the network marketing business - and i advise that you dont be in it too.

    HOWEVER.... most of the reasons people drop out are because of no marketing skills, there is face-to-face selling, it's time consuming reaching folks and driving to motivational seminars, long trips to meet a potential prospect, etc.

    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realize half of them are stupider than that.

      Exactly... but what you (and many others) obviously don't
      know or understand is that smart, successful network marketers
      don't try to sell anyone on anything.

      It's an all volunteer army. Convincing reluctant people to join
      is a waste of time and leads to high attrition. Nobody with an
      ounce of knowledge about this business model has done that
      for a long time now.
