Default Life is one big sales pitch

We're sold from the day we're born until the end

From the time we wake up every morning until we hit the bed

I 100% agree. And, you have to know the industry too!

It is hard to believe but I can make money just by giving away FREE VIP Club cards! It is a win-win scenario!

Smile Not so sales-y...

Hi Smiling Face,

I would like to know more about those VIP Club cards too.

In the meantime, the company I work for offers two not so sales-y paths to success - by acting as a virtual recruiter, and by sharing a free app.

Default It Depends on the Person...

On a day to day basis the average Joe or Jane is being bombarded by at least 5k+adverts, it's not just in Network Marketing. Selling isn't really the problem (it's the rejection aspect most people don't like). I myself had to over come my reservations about selling...and until now, I feel that I am a work in progress.

But at the end of the day, selling has a negative connotation to it especially because of the negative stereotypes and connotations that comes along with it. (The sleazy salesman or the Nigerian email scammer trying to sell you on washing dirty money...lol)

Also, we have to take into consideration that for any give product or service, there are at least 5-7 competitors trying to get that same consumer's attention,so then they become overwhelmed and put off all together. I agree, selling is a great way to earn and it virtually has no ceiling cap, but it comes with hurdles for people who are not overtly "Red" personalities.

Here's a open secret. If in the network marketing industry everyone is being sold something. Be it a comp plan, attending events, why to recruit, or whatever. Everyone is behind sold something or an idea so why do people have reservations about selling a product or service that can pay you a commission?

Good point and great post. I personally think the person needs to believe in themselves and the products or services they are promoting.

Excellent responses that I have read in this thread so far.

Default I agree

All good points I will be reading this thread ! I am new at this and it isn't easy for sure . I believe in the product but I believe you have to target the right age group and type of persons.

No matter what your product is you must find the right audience in order to succeed in sales.

And when you have the right product for the targeted audience you have an obligation to market that product to that audience.
