When they ask you what you do – and they will!

MLM Inviting Skill – The Elevator Speech

People always talk about the same things.

  • The Weather
  • What they do
  • & complain!

The second two topics will make you money if you just know what to say.

As soon as the weather is done, you can move on to something more productive by asking what they do.

  • Be interested.
  • Ask how long they have been doing it.
  • Ask what they like most about it.
  • Be positive. Complimentary. Empathetic.

But when they are done, they will probably ask what you do.

Now you could just say, “I’m a network marketer.” But that won’t get you anywhere.  They either don’t know what that means or have been pounced on by other unskilled network marketers. Either way, you haven’t done yourself or them any favors.

A far better answer would be to give an elevator speech that will, many times, get them asking YOU for more information.

It’s simple.  Practice it, and perfect it.  You will have more prospects than ever asking you to present to them.

Anyone can do this. It’s teachable, so it’s duplicatable.

We’ll teach you what to do about their complaints in another Yes! Training post.

The elevator speech is important part but don’t dwell on it get out and talk and you will perfect it through trial. I am constantly changing and perfecting mine.

I have been studying Mark Januszewski, but honestly seeing you do it on video and giving us the scripts and hearing your natural ability in talking it through has helped me be able to incorporate it. Thank you.
