Have you ever been nervous about selling your product or opportunity?
You’re not alone.
In fact, most people are nervous about selling anything.
Salespeople get a bad rap.
Often times, it’s actually warranted.
Especially in network marketing where some shady people are promoting blatant Ponzi schemes (usually crypto-currency investment scams), and products that no one in their right mind would buy if it weren’t or the opportunity attached to it.
But those are the exception, not the rule.
There are hundreds, maybe thousands, of legitimate companies with amazing products and services.
We are also blessed to be in a profession with some of the best personal development training in the world. In fact, many of the most famous speaker past and present got their start in network marketing. (Zig Ziglar, Jim Rohn, and Les Brown to name a few)
Because salespeople, for many, have a negative stigma attached to them, many people shy away from wanting to “sell” people.
Hence the absolute B.S. “we don’t sell, we SHARE” quote that weak leaders and gurus use to try and avoid the “sales” truth of our profession.
But I want to give you a different way to look at it that can help your downline members go from being a pansy to a pro. (Hey I like that – might be the title to my next book!)
Here’s the way I see it:
If you’re nervous about selling a legitimate product that actually helps people…
It is your MORAL OBLIGATION to be as persuasive as you need to be in order for them to buy it.
Because if they don’t buy your product, their life will not be any better!
If you are so nervous about selling that you don’t try at all…
You are doing them a DISSERVICE by NOT selling hard.
I’m not saying be a pushy salesperson…
Or to get people to do what they don’t want to do.
All I’m saying is to be persuasive enough so that they WANT to do it. (Buy it)
Promoting training events is one small example…
I sell the HELL out of events. I’m BOLD. BRASH. And often UNCOMPROMISING when it comes to promoting events.
And there’s one big reason for that.
I genuinely and sincerely in my heart of hearts believe I’m doing people a major disservice if I don’t say whatever I need to say ethically and honestly to get them to come to my training events.
Because I KNOW they are so damn good.
I’ve never, in over 10 years, had anyone ask for a refund.
Sure I’ve had people not light the world on fire after attending, but no one has EVER said it wasn’t worth it.
And many people have had incredible results after that they simply would never have had if they didn’t attend.
Because I believe in my products and services, I SELL HARD.
If I don’t sell hard, and people don’t buy, I’m doing them a disservice.
Do you genuinely believe your products/services help people?
If so, it’s your moral obligation to do everything you can to make sure people buy it so you can help them.
Sell hard, my friend!
