Most of us fear introducing our network marketing business to people we already know. We have convinced ourselves that people around us are not interested in network marketing, so we only target strangers. We actually want to wait until we are successful before we can show our family and friends about the opportunity.
Think of how you got convinced about network marketing yourself. Were you taken by surprise that the person who introduced you was actually involved in network marketing? How did the person convince you?
Everyone that you know would be interested in earning extra income. Just look around you and see the different things people are doing to make extra cash on the side. And for those who are not doing it, just look at the many times they complain about high bills and how badly the economy is doing. That tells you that they would welcome a legitimate opportunity to diversify their income.
Always remember that our networks are made of many extended networks, so people that you know will lead you to people that can really team up with you and build a great team. If a person you approach is not interested, ask them for a referral. They are likely to know someone who is. If you never tell them about the business opportunity, how can they ever tell those others in their own networks who might be looking for a business opportunity? They simply won’t because they have no idea.
