Why only talking about money brings the wrong recruits


“Quote One.”


Who Said Quote


In episode 150 Brooke shares another episode of the Spam Squad where she dissects an actual Facebook story post she saw and gives suggestions on how to post more authentically.


This is what the post said. “Would you be interested in a new job, a new experience, even if you already work, would you like an extra bit of cash? I work full time and still have time to sell.” Then it had a picture of her product and then says, “are you interested?” 67% said no. 


“How do you talk about your products or your opportunity in a way that make people really want to join?” - Brooke Elder.


First is putting something out on social media. We all know we don't want to sell, we want to share. This is just a very simple word choice, but when we are deciding to share, instead of sell, that changes our motives. 


So just tell your story. You can't really say that much in a Facebook or an Instagram story, so instead you could to do a three or four part story. You could also do a video of you talking about this instead and then you could still do the “are you interested?”

Instead of, “are you interested?”  it could be, “do you want more information or do you want to see how I did this?” So tell your story. What is it that you did? It doesn't mean that you have to have this amazing story of like, “oh, I retired my husband...I was able to quit my full-time job...I make a million dollars,” like all of those things. We think that we have to have these big, huge milestones before people even pay attention to us, which simply is not true.


A milestone that you can talk about is “do you know how awesome it feels to have a car that now I don't have to worry about how am I going to make that car payment? Instead what I do now is put that money away into savings!”


It's all about stories and being able to connect to a situation that the people listening have been in.


“The greatest thing about network marketing is it's a business in box.” - Brooke Elder. 


You don't have to worry about all the legal stuff, or product development. You don't have to worry about all the systems and automation of like, how do we ship these things from here to there. All you have to worry about is the customer service, making sure your customers are taken care of, the marketing and the sales, that's it.
