Do Not Let Amateurs Fool You

by Shalonda Gordon in Network Marketing

As a Network Marketer with 14 years of experience, I have been fooled by many amateur network marketers out here acting like Professional network marketers.

Now, I would love to sit here and tell you that I saw every single amateur up front and did not join them in business and end up losing my investment, yet that statement would be a lie.

The good news is after making several poor choices on who to join, I begin to see a common thread between amateurs and professionals.

After reading this information you will see an amateur after a few words are exchanged. Now some wonder why it matters rather the person sharing the opportunity is an amateur or a professional, they are starting their own business.. right?

Well, it matters.. it matters A LOT. See the person you join in your Network Marketing business can either help lead you straight to success or they can lead you in the direction opposite of success.

So working with a professional gives you a better chance of having success.

Now the first thing I noticed about amateurs in network marketing is that the first thing they tell you is they have a business that is better than white rice, and you must join.

You may say that all Network Marketers say those words. The issue here is that you haven’t asked them about starting a business. You really haven’t told them anything at all.

When this occurs slowly pull out your red flag and hold it close.

Now the Professional will gather some information prior to mentioning anything about their business.

See the professional understands that their business is not for everyone. The Professional realizes, they really do not want to work with everybody, therefore they need to kind of interview individuals to see they are a good match.

Another way to tell the amateur is by the way they listen and respond to your questions.

If the person is avoiding all your questions and if every response tells about something they have accomplished, pull out the red flag.

See a true Professional does not have to brag about their self every time you ask them a question. They simply answer your question with confidence, or inquire more about what YOU are looking to accomplish. Many amateur network marketers are so busy trying to convince you of all that they have accomplished that they avoid the questions. They also have poor training.

Professional network marketers will answer your questions and make sure you have enough information to make a logical decision, because the professional understands that if you have all the information up front it will avoid problems on the back end.

Finally, look for third party references about the individual with whom you are speaking. Do some research and make sure that they are connected to individuals who can actually help guide you to success.

Make sure there is a team with the individual, and not just the individual working solo.

One thing I have learned from many years in this industry is that it takes a TEAM. I also realized that there is not an “I” in TEAM. As you search for a business to take your family to the next level, make sure that you are ignoring the amateurs and attaching yourself to a Professional.

Now that you are ready to connect with a Professional, place your email below and discover the main technique that is creating success. I actually spoke to 1500+ people and shared this one technique that you deserve to discover.

Keep Smiling

Shalonda, Thanks for the insight. It is true that all things have amateurs that muddy the water. As an amateur, I find it so disappointing to have wasted time talking to an amateur … so i plan to reverse engineer your article to find professionals. Thank you!
