If there is one thing that your success in Network Marketing will rely on, it is leads. With enough leads, success is just a matter of time. Without leads, your business is dead in the water.
Leah Rae and I have generated leads in just about every way possible, both offline and online. Paying for leads or generating leads with paid advertising is a quick way to get ahead in this business, but not everyone is in a position to be able to pay for leads.
Free MLM leads usually take more effort and legwork to generate, but are just as good, if not better, than leads that cost money.
So where can you find them? Free MLM Leads are literally everywhere. At the mall, at the gas station, the post office, grocery store, in the phone book, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, and the list goes on and on.
I remember a big ah-ha moment for me is when I heard Eric Worre say, “Prospects are not a natural resource that you eventually run out of. Rather, finding people to talk to is a skill that you develop.” It’s not a matter of finding where these free MLM leads are, it’s just a matter of developing the skills you need to get their contact information and then follow up with them.
Free Network Marketing Leads Offline
If I had to rank the best sources for offline leads, it would be…
1) Warm market and referrals from your warm market
2) Networking events, classes, groups, and clubs – places where like-minded people gather to meet, network, and socialize
3) Professionals – realtors, mortgage brokers, financial planners, car sales professionals, furniture sales people, etc.
The Best Online, Free MLM Leads
If you want to generate free MLM leads online, you need to find places where people socialize online. Social media is an obvious place to go – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, YouTube, etc. But you also have internet forums and the comments section of blogs that you can go to in order to meet new people.
Turning a Prospect Into A Lead
So this is the part that requires some skill. First and foremost, you do not want to immediately pitch your business opportunity to anyone. It doesn’t matter whether it’s offline or online. The LAST thing anyone wants is to be pitched on something.
Network Marketing is a relationship business. People buy and join people that they know, like, and trust. So it’s important to generate trust and rapport with someone before you ever consider presenting them with your opportunity. This blog post explains why.
Getting Free Leads for MLM Online
What you want to do is find like-minded people and start a dialogue with them. For example, join Facebook groups where entrepreneurial-minded people gather and discuss things…think about places like the Robert Kiyosaki fan page or the Network Marketing Pro fan page.
When someone makes a post or comment that you like, send them a direct message and tell them. Some people respond, others don’t. Work with the ones who respond and build up some trust and rapport.
If they seem like they might be a good fit with your opportunity, then go ahead and see if they’re open to taking a look.
However, through your dialogue, you will find that some people are just not a good fit, and that’s ok. Don’t feel like you have to present your opportunity to everyone.
