If you’ve been in network marketing for a while then the chances are you’ll remember some of those hotel meetings where only your family showed up. Or that meal with a promising first date where you were so obsessed with recruiting people to your team that you tried to sign up the waiter. Never saw them again, right?
Luckily for many of us, those recruiting mistakes were made before the internet and social media.
Today, I see terrible mistakes being made online and these things can’t be unseen so it’s more important than ever to get it right.
The Internet Never Forgets and It’s Ruining It for Everyone Else
I once heard that success in business is all about ‘time’ and ‘place’. As a professional marketer, I would add ‘message’ to the equation as well.
Unfortunately, network marketers today are being taught online prospecting and recruiting methods, which include the wrong message, at the wrong time and most definitely in all the wrong places!
Here’s the truth!
There is a VERY fine line between prospecting on social media and spamming people. I’m sorry to say that most network marketers have been turned into human spam bots by their upline and company leaders…
So if you’re still a little fuzzy on whether you are a spammer or not, here’s a couple of little tests for you …
Warning Signs That Your Prospecting Efforts are Actually SPAM
1) You first private message to a stranger on social media includes a link to join your opportunity.
2) You post links to your opportunity or website in the comments section of other people’s social media posts.
Of course you don’t do those things do you?
Luckily for me, I found a better way to work successfully online very quickly in my career. Rather than spending hours spamming or private messaging people on social media, I learned how to legitimately get Facebook and other networks to actually help me attract the people who are most interested in what I have to offer.
Every morning I awake to quality leads in my inbox and commission payments hitting my bank account.
This strategy that I found is called ‘attraction marketing’, which is an internet marketing strategy designed for networkers and people in direct sales!

PS:So we know that Success is rarely a straight line right?
But getting your business off the ground in the first place is the greatest challenge…there are so many forces weighing you down and keeping you from gaining upward momentum.
Even when you’re picking up speed and finally have enough lift to start climbing higher, there will be various challenges pulling and pushing you left and right, making it difficult to keep everything balanced and on track.
But…once you’ve reached “cruising altitude,” things get MUCH easier.
