Methods for Recruiting Busy People into Your MLM

MLM Recruiting for Busy PeopleYesterday I was on a coaching call and the topic came up about how to recruit people that are already busy. Some people struggle to recruit those who are already busy when the reality is they should be about the easiest (and also the best( type of people to bring into your business.

Why you SHOULD go after Busy People

A lot of network marketers will talk to their friends that have time on their hands to “give them something to do”. These are the worst people to bring into your business as people will all the time in the world typically maintain that availability and never actually fill their time with anything productive. Just because someone “has time” doesn’t mean they will use it effectively.

Busy people, on the other hand, know the most people, get the most done, are the most dynamic, actually like working but also have pain points that you can use to get them open to exploring your MLM business opportunity. Recruit the busiest people and you have brought on the most connected and hard working teammates.

How to recruit the busy ones

Help them see that they are in a perpetual state of being busy, which, sucks. Who the heck wants to run around their whole life being busy and working endless hours with no residual income? Only someone deranged and sadistic loves to work their brains out day in and day out with no possibility of escape. Without passive or residual income, you are only trading dollars for hours which should be left to species unable to understand the power of leverage.

So, how you recruit them is by helping them see the power of actual freedom. If someone tells you they are swamped and extremely busy, say, That sucks, wouldn’t life be easier if you had money coming in each month whether you worked that month or not? Help them understand that if they work hard in a residual income opportunity, they can put in hard work for awhile and get paid the rest of their life based on that initial effort versus start every month off at zero. Corporate life is “what have you done for me lately” in most situations and people that were employee of the month or salesman of the month can find themselves jobless unless they continue to perform.

Too busy for massive passive income?

Sometimes it helps to ask the person why they work so hard. They may reply with “to support their family”. Well, wouldn’t it be cool to support your family while actually spending time with them? That is the power of a home based business. Growing up with pictures of your kids and family on your desk is much different than spending actual time with them, which, is easily possible with a large residual income. Next time someone tells you they are too busy, tell them, boy, that sucks, wouldn’t it be nice to have money coming in each month without being so stressed out while still spending time with your family that you are working so hard for? (Whew, that is a mouthful!) Basically, get the idea that busy people are some of the more stressed out but productive people in society and they need residual income perhaps more than anyone else.

    Hmmm…This sounds very familiar. In fact, just yesterday I was extremely fortunate to receive an amazing coaching session from the #1 income earner in my company and he said the exact same thing. I wonder if you know him…His initials are RH. 😉

    Just talked to a guy like this yesterday! The busiest people DO get the most done, and ENJOY working hard to produce results. You’re right Ray… they do make the best teammates! Thanks Ray!

  3. says

    Great Tip, as I am sure you already know.
    I really enjoy getting all the great information on you.
    Also, Congrats on your New Engagement.

    hey john, since your a busy attorney, what methods were used to get you to look at this industry?

  5. says

    Thanks Ray for the great tips! I have encountered several rejections from busy people myself. I was always trying to tell them, “Well you can do this business part-time, it’s really flexible, work when you want”….. When i should have been showing them how they can gain freedom.

  6. says

    Great content Ray, I love how much time network marketing gives you. Although many people forget that its net”work” marketing and think its Net”luck” Marketing like you said in one of your calls. But your right busy people know how to get things done.

    It was a number of years ago, but I was approached by 2 of my attorney friends who were in a company none of us are in anymore.

    I almost didn’t go to the meeting, however, one of their offices was right behind mine and they caught me before I could escape.

    But once I heard about residual income, leverage and the ability to create wealth without having to work myself to death. I was sold, and still am.

    How about you, what attracted you?

  8. says

    That’s a great post Ray. Many people are somewhat uncomfortable approaching busy people specifically if they are wealthier or more (professionally) successful than they are in belief that they have no value to offer to such people, when the truth is the exact opposite.

  9. says

    Real Simple ways to achieve great success. By reminding the busy prospect that he is too busy and also reminding him that he cant be too busy to make huge residual income. Thanks Ray Higdon.

    You are spot on here man! Busy people are the type of people you want in your business. Busy people get things done!

    Slackers will always be slackers. The last thing a slacker want is an additional responsibility, even if it provides time and money freedom.

    Thanks for sharing.

    “Just because someone has time doesn’t mean they will use it effectively”…that was a gem of a quote. It goes back to discipline. Busy people usually have some degree of it to juggle their busy life. Thanks for the article Ray! Early congrats on you and Jess’s big day!

    This is so true, Ray. I have vowed that when I have kids that my kids will not just be a picture on my desk that I will see them daily. I once read an article where the writer asked a question. He said something like this: “Would you work real hard to make $1 million in 12 months because if you didn’t, your wife and kids would be killed?” My answer was absolutely yes.

    We’re motivated by the need to avoid pain and gain pleasure. When you show busy people how they can avoid the pain of having to be away from their families so much, they will be more open to listening to you about how they can change their income situation.

    Thanks for sharing!

  14. says

    Turn your prospect’s pains into pleasures. Have them imagine the freedom of generating passive income, and not having to run around like a chicken with their head cut off, to do it.

    Thanks for sharing RH!

    In the past when I met “busy people” I assumed that they didn’t have time to add something else to their plate. I never thought about the fact that network marketing could give them the means to have more time freedom – which was one of the reasons I got involved in this industry myself. So an obvious light bulb just went off for me. Ryan I like your comment – “turn their pains into pleasures.”

  16. says

    People often wrongly decide “he’s too busy, so I’d just be bothering him.”
    We often prejudge people and lose the opportunity to offer valuable info
    that may be appreciated.

    At least acknowledge that he looks busy, and offer to call at a specific time later.

    Good article, with good ideas!

    Hey Ray
    Man I have talked to many of people that gave this “Excuse”
    and always asked if I could contact them at a later date with
    75 to 80% saying,YES. I will definitely used this approach
    to counter their response. Think I will send out a few e-mails
    now to give them a opportunity to evaluate this option.
    Thanks Ray Great Insight…..
    In Christ & To Your Success

    Great advice, but I still haven’t had success with this. It could be because I still have a FT job, or because I’m not making fire-my-boss money yet. If fact, I’ve had several of them ask me how much I’m making and how long it will take to get to a certain level of income.

    I’ll keep practicing.
