Mentoring for Free

Some people think that mentoring for free has no value. I disagree! We mentor all our clients and team for free with huge success.

You have to ask yourself what kind of mentoring am I getting? Am I getting the old run of the mill mentoring or am I getting what is needed to run a successful Network Marketing Business?

One of the most important parts of mentoring in network marketing is giving people the skills needed to speak to others and get others to say, yes. You can have the most glossy professional material but if the person you are trying to show it to is not willing to listen then you will not succeed.

The skill that is needed is to learn how to talk to anyone and have them ask for more information. Have them want to learn about what you are offering. Skill is the key!

I can walk into a room and start listening to people talk and end up with people who want to learn more about my company.

It’s not hard! Network Marketing Companies don’t teach this skill, they teach you to find willing people to listen. Well, those people are few and far between.

They use an old out dated system , which is following the 80/20 Rule in a bizzar way. Where out of 100 people, 80 people will do nothing and 20 will listen. Then out of the 20 who are listening the closing ratio gets even less.

I submit that it is silly to walk by the 80 to get to the 20, lets talk to the 80 and then work with 60. How is this done you might be asking? Through skills that we teach our team. The 80 out of 100 people will ask for information then 60 plus people will be candidates for joining your business. If you have 64 people who have heard about your offer and want to go further, how many will you get to join your Network Marketing Business?

How do I find a good business mentor?

Getting people to ask for more information is a skill that has to be learned. Many times successful Network Marketers learn the skill over time but they are not realizing that they are learning it. Getting a stranger to ask for more information is an aquired skill that takes years to achieve unless it is specifically taught.

I went to a party the other night and was listening to a person complain about not having enough money. By using the skill that allows me to talk to strangers I was able to have that person ask me for more information. They asked me, instead of me pushing something on them.

Now truth be known, I had to decide at that time if I really wanted to do it or not. After making the decission that I wanted to help them I decided to use the skill. What a wonderful world! How many people would have vommited information all over that person and backed them in a corner and gotten no where.

Why don’t people talk to strangers? It’s a carry over from what your parents told you when you were a child, “Don’t talk to strangers”! You are a good child! You don’t talk to strangers to this day and if you do it is never about business.

The TV show “Cheers” is all about going where you are known. “Where everyone knows your name” is how the lyrics of the song goes. No one in Cheers is a stranger, everyone know your name. Thats why people join clubs and build relationships. There is nothing wrong with building relationships but once the relationship is built will you talk about your Network Marketing business? Probably not!

Using specific skills you will be equipt to speak to strangers or friends and get them in all cases to ask for more information. Once someone asks for more information are you able to present your program?

There is a whole set of reasons why people shut down sales pitches but the main one is that people “Don’t want sales pitches they didn’t ask for”. You have to get them to ask for the sales pitch. With the skills we teach at Business Mentor Systems you can learn how to get people to ask for more information and say yes to your offer.

Go to and fill out the contact us form and someone from my office will contact you. Please give us 24-48 hours to get back to you. We charge nothing for this information and only ask that you use it wisely.
