Conversation is an opportunity for recruiting people and is just another step in the marketing process. Every time you talk about your products or your business there will be people listening to your conversation.
Everyone within your 5 foot circle can hear everything you say so make sure you speak clearly and show some excitement about what your doing. Your conversation will attract people so be ready. When questions come up and they will it is essential to listen to people your in a conversation with. Only respond if you can do it with confidence. You are targeting an audience with everyone in that 5 foot circle of your voice.
You’re at a party listen to the people around you, there is always someone talking about work so go start a conversation with them. Waiting for them to bring up what you do. because it is your invitation to sell yourself, your product or opportunity.
The conversation may go something like this…
Me – So glad I don’t have to get up early tomorrow, I can stay up and have a great time.
Mary – I don’t either, I’m not working right know. I was in real-estate and worked as an office assistant.
Me – I’m sorry is there anything I can do?
Mary – Not unless you have a job in your pocket. I’ve been looking for work and have yet to find a job or one that I feel is worth my time. I am good at what I do and I have years of experience.
Me – I’m sorry Mary, you’re out of work I it’s tough out there I’m sure things will turn around for you soon. I don’t worry about where I’m going to work any more, I’m happy about my future.
Mary – What do you do?
Me – I market on the inter-net and it’s great! I choose my own hours and everyday I learn something that I can use to improve my business. I love it!
Mary – Sounds too easy, what’s the catch?
Me – No catch, I just decide that I would rather work for myself and found away to do it. It really didn’t cost me that much to get started.
Mary – I heard that companies on the inter-net are there only to get your money. Money I don’t have, I think it’s a scam.
Me – Not everyone is trying to get your money, but it does cost money to run a business and my cost is low. Mary with your abilities you will fly through the training and would start making money right away.
Mary – What does it cost? Do I have to put up thousands? I just don’t think doing that is for me.
Me – That depends on how you approach it. Are you looking for a job or a business? This is a business opportunity.
Mary – That depends on how much it cost.
Me – You can start-up with a company like ( your company name) which is less than $500 and they supply you with a web site, training and all the tools you will need to succeed. I handle only the products that I use myself and the on line company I’m with.
Mary – I don’t have an extra $50 dollars lying around let alone $500.
Me – I know that you work hard for your money and so do I. An inter-net business is the way I make my money. I can assure you that you will get out of it what you put into it. There is training with every job the difference I am doing this for me and my business.
Mary – I don’t know if it for me?
Me – Mary, I don’t want you to do anything that you’re not comfortable with. Let me give you my card and you can check things out for yourself. The web site with information on it can help you make up your mind is on the card.
Mary – Okay I will check it out.
Me – Mary I know how hard things can be. How about if I give you a call in a few days to see how you’re doing?
Mary – Okay I’d like that, call in the afternoon I will be job hunting during the day, here is my number.
Me – So how about this party is it off the hook or what?
Mary – Let’s party.
You will be over heard by other people at the party and they will want your business card, so bring plenty. Make sure you get there information, because a few days later. You are just simply call them to see how they are doing, if they checked out the opportunity and if you can answer any question.
Not every conversation will lead to a person being interested but when the do you’ll be ready to help them sign up. I stay in touch with them, because a call once in a while does wonders and you are letting them know that they are important.
You are a messenger of opportunity and one that you believe in. Opportunity is only a benefit if you hear about it. So start a conversation where ever you go and get the message out there.
Mary is approachable because she is an example of what we all go through at some time in our lives. We are never in control if we depend on someone else to give us an income. By taking control of your financially income you take control of your life. In fact you are offering someone the same opportunity that was offered to you. That is the reason you are here. Focus on the opportunity in your conversation so you can help them be successful.
They may decide it is not for them and that’s okay. There are thousands of people who are just waiting to hear about this opportunity. Part of a great conversation is being able to listen and respond knowledgeable so the other side of the conversation know what your talking about. Listen to them when they say they are not interested and more on.
