Why do people say no?



Why do people say “no” to your business opportunity? It is the greatest thing since sliced bread. It might even make you rich.


greatest thing since sliced bread



You get to leverage the work of others. Maybe even leverage the efforts of thousands people. In this case, leverage means “to use.” Everyone does a little bit of work and hopefully, everyone makes money. You could even win a car or a vacation along the way. You get all this for a pittance. Maybe as low as a few hundred dollars.

What’s not to like about that?

In my, not so humble, opinion, network marketing is one of the best business models ever devised. Usually, you get into a business and you are thrown to the wolves. You are out there fending for yourself with no one to ask for help.  You succeed or fail by your own wits.

Okay, sometimes it’s the same in network marketing, but it shouldn’t be that way!

In MLM, you don’t make a lot of money or any money if someone or a lot of someones in your downline doesn’t make money, as well. You will have that as a built in incentive to help others build their businesses.

Again, what’s not to like about that?

Why would anyone say “no” to you when you ask them to join your business?

They’d have to be crazy to turn you down.

Here is a list of the top 4 reasons people say “no” to a network marketing business.

pyramid scheme

Number 4 … It’s a pyramid scheme.

I hate to burst your bubble, but MLM is not a pyramid scheme. If your company sells real, tangible products or services, to the public, then it is not a pyramid. When you draw up a schematic of a MLM business, it looks like a pyramid, but then, all businesses look that way if you draw them out. You have a CEO. Then under that you have a few vice presidents. The under that you have more managers. Lastly, you have the employees. Hopefully, a lot of them. That also looks like a pyramid.

i can't sell anything

Number 3 … I’m not a salesperson.

Well, good! I’m not looking for salespeople. I am not in the sales business. I am in the relationship building and problems solving business. If you can form a relationship with new people and find out what kinds of problems they need to have solved, then you can do this business.

i'm broke

Number 2 … I don’t have the money.

If I offered you the chance to buy a brand new Ferrari valued at over $100,000, for the mere price of $300, would you buy it? Could you come up with the $300 somehow, someway?

Of course you could. Enough said!

it didn't work for me

Number 1 … I tried it before and it didn’t work.

Join the club. More than 99% of people who join network marketing companies never reach the top levels. I think this is caused by a lack of business knowledge. People have no idea of how to run a business and they are never given proper training. If you know what to do and how to do it, you will have a better chance of success.

If you are looking for a company to join, find a leader who is willing to show you what to do and how to do it, before signing up with them.

You also have to be willing to do that kind of work. You are required to recruit people and train them, too. If you aren’t willing to do this kind of work, then find something else to do.

There are any number of reasons that people could come up with to say “no” to your business opportunity. Those are but a few.

Some people may say “no,” but they mean, let’s slow this down a bit so I can find out more information, before I join. Or someone might say “no,” but they mean, not now. Maybe they really do have some set of circumstances that would get in their way.  They could be saying that maybe some time in the future this would work for me.

i said No

The main reason people say “no” is that you haven’t shown them how you can solve their problems with this business opportunity. You need to do a better job educating them. You need to prove to them that you are the leader they have been looking for. You need to show them a legitimate business plan with a proven track record. You need to show them that it is easily learned, easily executed and it is easy to duplicate.

That’s the best foundation on which to build a business.

The only legitimate reasons for someone to say “no”, is that they just don’t want to do it.  They don’t want to do the work!

People will say “no.” You may never see them again. It may cause you to doubt what you are doing. But press on, my friend. It’s a journey worth taking!
