It is amazing.
Every where I have the honor of speaking, I see over and over the 5 types of recruiters on MLM, and they all remind me of animals. (smile)
Animals have a particular way of creating in their habitat what they need to survive and live on, and to become what nature meant for them to be. You may even see yourself in one of these Recruiting Animals that run rampant in MLM.
There are 5 Types of recruiters in MLM and Network Marketing:
1) "The Snake".
This is the type of recruiter that deceives and takes advantage of folks and is a cancer to this great industry.
This recruiter has one focus: To TAKE and do whatever it takes to recruit you, including unethical things and practices.
Who knows, but they are out there, and it is a shame. A snake slithers around the ground silently and looks for prey.
Sound familiar? Know anyone like that?
If you do, stay away from them as they are bad news.
2) "The Hyena."
This is the person who simply cannot shut up during a recruiting meeting or call. They are focused on themselves and talk about themselves and like a hyena, run their mouths and laugh a lot all in the name of "look at me, and what I have done."
Give me a break.
People come into this MLM business for THEIR reasons, not yours.
Keep the conversation focused on them and not you. Don't be like a hyena and dominate the meeting. Don't be like a hyena and look foolish to the prospect. Don't be like a hyena and constantly be engaged in bringing attention to you.
Keep your attention on them, and you will have a much better chance of recruiting someone.
3) "The Cow."
The Cow is the "Lay around all day and do nothing and chew on CUD" Recruiter.
These folks are the less-than ambitious people who wander around in MLM and chew on "Failure Grass" and it ends up CUD.
Cows chew CUD daily. What does "CUD" stand for?
"Consistently Unproductive Daily."
That's what Cows do. They do nothing and get nothing in this business.
Are you a Cow in recruiting? Do you MOOOOO? (As instead of working, you end up watching MOOOOvies?)
That is called a CLUE! GET BUSY and quit chewing Failure Grass and CUD! Success Grass tastes 1000 times better!
4) "The Beaver."
These are the folks that are teachable, and are eager to work and are excited about the business. They have a great work ethic, and a great mental focus, and they are into one thing:
They are into Network marketing to BUILD and build more. They like to build DAMS.
DAMS are what create success in MLM.
The DAM of Belief.
The DAM of Action.
The DAM of Results.
The DAM of Consistency.
The DAM of Prospects.
You know what DAM stands for?
"Doing All Methodically."
And that is what they do. ALL. Everything. Whatever it takes, and they do it Methodically, step by step, daily, and never give up. They prospect, contact, present, follow up, get the decision, and train DAILY!
Until they have built a DAM and reservoir of SUCCESS!
5) "The Eagle."
The Eagle is a recruiter that is in a class all by themselves.
They soar above the crowd when it comes to recruiting, and they are sharp and focused in their efforts. They are totally professional, and have great Leadership skills. They are sharp in many ways and have great communication and building skills.
They recruit from a "what is best for you, not best for me" standpoint, and always puts the prospect first and foremost.
The eagle knows whom they want to recruit, and doesn't bother with anybody else.
Eagles look for other Eagles, or those who aspire to be.
Eagles search out for the BEST in people, and then when they find it, they know they have something to build on, and to recruit.
Eagles are head and shoulders above most in recruiting in their actions, consistency, attitudes, and work ethic.
Where are you in the 5 Types of recruiters?
I hope and pray at least the Beaver.
Many a Beaver has grown and evolved into an Eagle over time.
Where are you evolving?
Your answer has just painted a picture of your recruiting destiny in the Network Marketing and MLM industry.
