The motivation and excitement level you feel is high, when you first sign up for a network marketing opportunity. Yet, that motivation diminishes many times when you realize that you are now responsible for coming in contact with hundreds, if not thousands, of people to prospect into your business before you start making a serious amount of money. This can certainly seem overwhelming. It is difficult to imagine where you might meet all of these people who you could possibly invite to join your business. Here are five ideas for places that you can meet new people who would make excellent candidates for your network marketing endeavour.
First, you can meet possible business partners at clubs that you both belong to, like at church or at the gym. There is an automatic bond developed between the two of you before you even say a word to one another because of the fact that you both belong to the same club or organization. You can build on that bond and move the conversation toward your network marketing opportunity.
Second, you can meet possible network marketing partners out in public places like the movies or the mall. This might be the most productive of all the search areas, because the amount of people who you can meet in public is totally endless. If you have a slow day, you can try again the next day, or any day after that, even in the same exact location. The type of people there will be different every time.
Third, you can meet people to invite to join your network marketing opportunity by simply going door-to-door in your neighbourhood and introducing yourself. As a matter of fact, a variation on this idea, is to simply invite all of the people from your neighbourhood to a party or a barbecue where you serve up products from your network marketing business. Be sure not to put any pressure on your neighbours at the party, just hand out your cards to let them know how they can contact you to order more products or join the company.
Fourth, you can meet possible prospects for your network marketing opportunity by using social networking and social media sites. This is something you need to be quite careful with though, to make sure that you do not spam. Allow conversations to take their natural course and flow organically.
Fifth, a terrific place to meet new candidates is to make conversation with all of the service people who help you, like wait staff and the teller at your bank. Particularly if they seem especially perceptive or attentive, this can be extremely helpful because you can already see how they handle professional situations so you know they would be wonderful on your team.
Do not let meeting new people intimidate you and cold prospecting them destroy your excitement at the beginning. It can still be your future, you just need to learn how to meet new people and prospect them. Now you have five good ideas about places to grow your contacts. Put them to good use and go on out and try them today.
