Nag post ka ng napakagandang networking business sa FB, waited for some minutes, but nobody "Like'd" or even commented. Baka nalampasan lang nila...

Then what happened?


You made another post, this time you made sure to tag everyone about your awesome MLM business, making sure you said the right words that would surely hit home: Matutupad na ang pangarap mo! Sagot sa kahirapan! Best business opportunity in the world!and behold, wala parin feedback from them. Third time, wala parin. Inunfriend ka pa!

What's next?

Di ka na nag tag.

Pinuno mo nalang ang wall mo ng : We're only looking for SERIOUS PEOPLE with BIG DREAMS or Hanggang ngayon ba nakatunganga ka parin? Payaman na kami dito! or Habang nagdududa ka, kami nagkaka-kotse na! and the worst I've seen are the posts targeting employment.



While these things are true, kahit na ang nasa isip natin kaya natin napost ang mga iyon ay para magising ang mga kaibigan at kamag-anak natin na may iba pang paraan para mabuhay bukod sa pagiging mahirap, we sometimes fail to notice na nag bi-bitter bitteran na tayo sa mga posts natin.

I was guilty of that. Isipin mo ba naman ang ganda ng business ko pero walang pumansin. Pero kapag nag palit naman ng status na In a relationship to It's complicated nag uumapaw ang likes at comments. Ang labo no?



Eventually I realized that those bitter posts are counter productive because they drive away people. Ang pait eh. Paringgan ba naman na walang pangarap or nakatunganga lang or empleyado lang. Sino ba naman ang gustong masabihan ng ganoon? Pader siguro.

I realized that those people in my friend list, those are the people I laugh with, I cry with, I swore to love, and I swore to protect in real life. This may sound crazy, but those people who ignored us, those people who un-friended us when we tagged them, they have dreams too! Baka nga mas matayog pa ang pangarap nila kesa sa pangarap natin, and yet we have no idea.

We networkers may have the means and information to make our lives better or wealthier, but we're not and we will never be in the position to question or ridicule other people about their ambitions, their goals, or just their way of life.



It's always good to share the best things we have especially with the people that matter to us. If they take it, good for them. If they don't, then we shouldn't take it too personally.

It could be that they are just simply not as business-minded as you are. Also, try to understand na karaniwan sa ating mga Pilipino hindi magaling mag express ng No kasi tingin natin baka makasakit tayo ng damdamin kaya most of us tend to ignore someone or make excuses instead of simply or politely saying No.

For whatever reason, wag mo nalang masyadong damdamin ang rejections and challenges ng business, pero try to learn from those. Ang sabi nga, wag kang magiging too emotional sa business kundi talo ka.

If you're trying to inform friends and relatives about your business, it's best to ask them once. Kung ano man ang kalalabasan, respect them and move on from there. You wouldn't want to get to a point na makulitan sila sa iyo kasi that's where things get ugly.

Our role is to ask, not to shove our own beliefs down their throats. Kung sakali naman na mag "No" family or friends natin, they could always approach us when time comes na ready na sila. Kaya nga ang another term para sa Networker ay Business Consultant. We should be capable enough to help people when they need consultation regarding business. Parang doctor pala ano?



Yun lang po. Hopefully we turn our bitter posts into encouraging ones. Stay positive! :D

That's all for now.

By the way, thank you for reading. If you find this helpful, feel free To Ask Question this to anyone who needs it. Thanks for your time and best wishes on your business. :)

Social Media is shaping how we market our business on the internet.  But like email, we should not SPAM or make annoying posts about our products or business.  Besides becoming unpopular with our friends, doing that will give them an impression that we are desperate. 

But...

If done the RIGHT WAY, we will be able to effectively use these Social Media sites in our advantage to find people like us who are open about starting a business in Network Marketing.

So, How do you do it the RIGHT WAY?

If you will use logic for a moment, you will be able to see that there is a certain CULTURE present in these social media sites.  If you will do or post things that is against that CULTURE, people will think that you are SPAMMING or they will think that you are being impolite.  That is why sometimes, they go to the extent of "un-friending" you or removing you from your friend's list of contacts.

So...

to effectively use social media to help you build your Network Marketing business, you have to learn the CULTURE and market using that approach.

--hi po.. when a friend of mine introduced a business he quoted "be open-minded", and then ok go lang kami.. tapos nung na introduce niya yung business sakin it was MLM, hindi ko siya pinansin nung una.. lagi niya ako tinetext or tinatawagan but still lagi kong nirereject.. lagi kong sinasabi na busy ako.. until dumating yung isang kaibigan ko with same business which is MLM, and nag table talk kami, tapos hindi ko alam bigla nalang akong na engganyong sumali.. ang sabi ko din kasi, wala namang masama if mag try ako.. tapos ayun sumali nga ako.. until i got my first check.. and then followed by another..


--share ko lang din ito kasi dati snob din ako or bitter na masasabi pagdating sa MLM... eh ngayon mag result na.. kung alam ko lang din sana noon pa ako nag invest sa MLM... kapag may mga taong tumutulong po sa inyo wag niyo po ireject.. they're just trying to help naman eh.. para naman sa ikabubuti niyo yun.. ayun share ko lang.. ^_^

--ma'am Lyka nag PM po ako sayo.. hope for your response.. thank you...

You must not advertise a drill, instead you must share an information on how to make a drill
that's the secret. =)

Correction, it should not be "share an information on how to make a drill" but about making holes.

Perry Marshall said it this way - "Nobody who bought a drill actually wanted a drill. They wanted a hole. Therefore, if you want to sell drills, you should advertise information about making holes - NOT information about drills!"

Nice post and very informative  :cool2:

Pabuhay lang ulit:  :D

I think when you have a networking business (MLM or direct selling) dapat  i-treat mo sya like any normal traditional business when dealing with your family, friends and peers (this is not an expert opinion, but based sa mga kakilala ko na kahit papaano ay  successfully kumikita ganito ang ginagawa nila). For example, sa traditional business like Lumber and Hardware - hindi mo naman pipicture-an yun puwesto mo at ita-tag yun friends and family mo sa facebook para sabihin sa kanila na "bumili kayo sakin ng pako at pintura" tapos kapag walang nagreply "gusto nyo siguro pangit ang bahay nyo" ang ipopost mo.  :hihi: Kasi ang dating nun eh nagiging masyado kang aggressive at nagiging mukhang desperate. Iisipin nila "bakit kailangan pang i-tag, wala bang bumibili sa puwesto mo?" Tapos mas lalo tuloy mawawala yun trust nila sa product  kasi desperate ka makabenta  :oops:

Sa MLM or direct selling naman, normally ginagawa na nilang pamalit yun facebook sa lack ng physical na puwesto. At ang kasaklapan pa nun eh yun din ang sinasabi sa kanila ng uplines nila na gawin. In reality, when you have a business like this kailangan mong mag-branch out at kumausap ng mga tao other than your family and immediate group of people. Kumausap ng mga tindahan na baka interested masupply-an ng multi-vitamins, Green Barley, pillows, etc.

Ang ginagawa ng upline ko noon sa direct selling eh dinadala nya yun mga producs sa mga area like Rizal or Bulacan (kung saan wala pang branch doon) tapos doon nya inaalok sa mga tindahan na gustong magpa-supply. Ngayon, itong mga tindahan na to eh walang balak pumunta sa Metro Manila lalo na kung Ortigas ang branch so dapat sya rin ang magsupply doon. Ma-trabaho talaga sya lalo na sa umpisa (at aaminin ko hindi ganun kadami ang alam ko para i-discuss pa itong technique na ginagawa nya) - pero sa pagsusupply pa lang nya ng products every weekend kumikita na sya ng additional 20-25k a month on top of her income from her traditional business.  Tapos hindi pa nya kelangan maging bitter sa friends nya kasi hindi naman nya inaalok doon. Ang nangyayari, nakikita nila na busyng busy sya sa buhay at tinatanong sya kung "ano ba pinagkakaabalahan nya ngayon?" tapos ayun na - dyan na magsisimula ang sales pitch.  :party:

But of course, gumagana lang yun technique na yun sa MLM or direct selling na OK ang PRODUCTS. Kasi kung recruitment lang talaga ang habol mo at hindi magbenta, medyo mahirap yun. Dadating sa point na magiging aggressive ka talaga makapag-recruit lang (since yun yung focus ng business mo) kailangan mo pang mang-kidnap ng kaibigan na pwede gawing downline (bad practice).

Hi. Isa ako dun sa mga nagunfriend ng mga nag tag sakin sa mlm. To be fair I respect their business and their opinion of great opportunity. But you don't shove it to the face of people and more so to your friends for that matter. It's like religion. You believe you find the answer but hey keep it to yourself. There are millions of religion and to say they are all wrong is absurd. Chances are you are wrong as well. :hihi:
What Im saying is that there is no single formula for wealth. Yours is by mlm for others it's something else. So hold your horses becoz if by any chance you are wrong you will avoid mockery. Peace to all!  :rakenrol: :rakenrol: :rakenrol:

Can someone explain the mlm business model to me?  I've been in the manufacturing, wholesale, retail, and services business.  It's clear.  Potential customers have needs, you supply them, give them good honest service or goods, with good honest pricing.  Then, they will come back to buy more and will bring their friends and family.

What about mlm?  What does one think when he ambitions to be in mlm?

mlm is akin to a cult, where everyone within your network must follow a single system for it to work.. in mlm, you do not only buy and sell products but you are supposed to make sure that the people in your network are also buying and selling the same products.. unlike in other types of business, your customers don't have to sell your products, they just need to buy them.. your business will be ok as long as you have buyers.. but in mlm, you also need sellers, sellers who must build their own network of sellers.. building a network of sellers is more challenging because other than selling the product itself, you are practically selling the business model as well...

There are many things that I love about this business, but there are
two things that really stand out for me.

It’s the only business I know of where to really succeed
you have to help other people succeed. You have to lift
others and help them achieve their goals.


You won’t be able to do this without stretching and
growing yourself. Your success is directly correlated to
your personal growth
.

Part of this journey is you becoming a leader. If you can become
a genuine leader who gives service and truly desires the ultimate
success of others, nothing will stop you from reaching your goals.

So your real focus is in recruiting people as your downline?  What about the ones who will actually use the products you sell?  The ones who actually buy vitamins, supplements, etc?

Good Day!

Thank you for replying. I never mention anything about recruiting. There are many ways to help your team which includes training, mentoring and guiding them in the business.

To become successful in the business, a distributor should be the master of the product. With this, we are advising our partners to use the products. We believe The success of a Network Marketing company is tied to the efficacy of its product.

Hope this clarifies!
