Objections Series- “I don’t know anyone!”



Today’s objection- “I don’t know enough people to be successful in network marketing!”

Yesterday’s blog addressed the objection “I’m not a salesperson!” In part 4 of the “Objection Series” we will address the objection “I don’t know anyone!”, or “I don’t have a large network!”, or “I don’t know anyone I can share this with!”

This is an objection I can personally relate to, because when I started my business I was a shy, broke, kindergarten teacher. I didn’t have a large network–most of my friends were young like me! Through personal and professional development I was able to establish a network, make new friendships (the most rewarding part of my business), and today I am a top network marketing leader, and we are six-figure MONTHLY earners (and the #1 earners in our company!)

Check out this clip for my thoughts on this common objection, then look below for language tips & solutions to help people get started, if this objection is keeping them from joining you=>

When I started my business I had just moved, just gotten married…I was a formerly shy teacher in my 20’s, and truly didn’t know many people. But through our profession and proven system, I was able to expand my network and not only meet new customers, and consultants, but also new friends! By the age of 29 I was our company’s first 6 figure MONTHLY earner, and began earning a multiple six figure monthly income by 30!

Here’s what I share with people when they say they don’t know enough people to get started: “What I love about this business is that it’s not necessarily who you know, but people you’ll meet, and be referred to! Plus, this business is a great way to get to know people as well. We will teach you tools to help you reach out and get off to a strong start. You simply have to be coachable and committed to implement our proven system.”

Hope today’s objection was overcome! If you “liked” it, please show me by giving a “virtual thumbs-up” with a “like” or “comment”, and don’t forget to “share” today’s post with your team! YOU ROCK!

Stay tuned to the blog, and to our Facebook page for more common objections, and how to overcome them! I also give tons of language in my best-seller “Rock Your Network Marketing Business!”
