Are you looking to recruit more people into your business?
Remember, if you are looking to grow your network marketing business and you hear the word recruiting we want you to look at it in the world of customers AND distributors.
Too often, people get so focused on recruiting business builders where your customer growth is equally as important.
(Note: if your company doesn’t consider both sides of a compensation plan — we should talk) So now you’re probably wondering what is this ONE word we’re referring to, right? Well … that word would be FRIENDSHIP.
Recruit More People with Friendship
Instead of saying to yourself ‘how can I recruit more people into my business’ instead, start asking yourself how you can go out and make more friends. We believe that every single person you meet with either enrich your life or you, will enrich theirs.
And the only way that the enrichment can happen is through genuine conversations without any sort of agenda attached. For the most part, most of the people who have partnered with us in business were through relationships and friendships we had both cultivated and nurtured over the years.
They have led us to amazing people and we would like to believe we have done the same for them.
Here are 8 Ways to Build Solid Friendships in Business
The first is to be authentic. Be who you are and accept others as they are. It’s easy to create a false persona, especially online, but that is not the way to start a relationship and short lived in the world of business.
Next way to recruit more people with friendship is identify shared goals and values. We seek out people in life we like, share similar goals and values with. Are they honest, kind, knowledgeable, helpful? How do they treat others? … and so on. When you share common morals with others, and where your goals align — you’re in the right place.
Don’t be afraid to vulnerable. We are human and sometimes that means sharing and supporting people through difficulty, challenge and change. Showing our vulnerability is part of our authenticity and, allows an opportunity for you to connect on a much deeper level.
People love to FEEL that you have their back. Let people know that you have their back as a way of showing loyalty to them. There are a variety of ways this can happen but the simplest way is to simply, show up.
Breath Life into Others
The greatest compliment in business is a referral, right? We should be thoughtful, have the right motives and be connecting people for the right reasons. Not all referrals will work out since it takes two to make it happen and work, but an introduction can go a long way. Want to recruit more people through introductions? Introduce them to others you’re working with — this helps with the development of team culture.
Now this next tip on how to recruit more people into your business is a tougher one; let go of your expectations. Always go into friendships with an open mind, realistic expectations and never assume. People are only who we think they are based on what our interactions have been with them. One of the best pieces of advice we got from a mentor many yers ago was: accept the way people are not as you want them to be.
Offer before asking. When we educate, help and inspire others with our experiences and expertise, we are building the foundation for trust that underlies friendships that are long lasting. When we create content, speak from stage, do a workshop, a webinar, go to events, etc., we are serving and helping.
Last but certainly not least …. set a goal every day to enrich someone else’s life.
As we mentioned above, we believe we meet people who will enrich our lives or vis versa — keep this in the forefront of your mind and you will go on to recruit more people, generate more leads and create a ton of amazing friendships along the way.
