Ever wonder why people say no to your business? Remember the first time you sat through a business opportunity presentation? Whether in person or online, it probably got you excited and that's exactly what it's intended to do. It gets the juices flowing and starts you thinking of all the people you know who would be interested in joining your business.
More times than not that isn't how it actually turns out. To be sure, some of those people who you initially think of will say yes. But for most everyone, those yes's are hard to come by and rarely become a reality.
The more likely outcome is that all those people you thought of turn out to be No's instead and the frustration and disappointment soon begins to set it. The fact is, that no matter what the business is, you'll be getting a lot more no's than yes's. That's just the way it is.
As the scenario plays out, doubt begins to creep in. Why all the rejection and is it you they are rejecting or is it the business they are turning down? People will give you the same lame excuses; no money, no time, hate selling or I don't know anyone. What drives you totally crazy, is the fact that you know these people and they are either struggling financially or they are successful business people who could crush it in your business.
What causes people to decline getting involved in your business has nothing to do with not wanting time freedom and money freedom because they do.
It can stress you out because it makes no sense, and trying to figure out why people say no to your business can drive you crazy. What is the honest reason? Is it that they know you and don't believe you have the ability to run a business and be a leader? Or is it that they don't believe in the business itself, the product, the company or the compensation plan?
Let's face it , there are many ways to engage people and pitch your business. We already mentioned talking to friends and family or even starting up a conversation with anyone you meet. But is that what you had in mind when you got involved in a home business? Not likely. Plus even if you are able to have some success with those old school methods, at some point you'll run out of people to talk to or just burn out.
Then there's “attraction marketing” that uses the internet to engage people and draws them to you. Now rather than you being the hunter, you become the hunted. The online methods of promoting and marketing your business such as email marketing, social media marketing, video marketing and the list goes on.
They all work, but they all have a learning curve and require you spend money, time or both. The big advantage that online marketing has over belly-to-belly is that there is no personal rejection. Even though you’re not getting a yes, at least you’re not getting beat up by your friends, family and others.
OK, so exactly why do people say no to your business? Believe it or not, it has nothing to do with all that other stuff (well maybe a little). But the real reason they are saying no is….Watch the video below to get the answer.
Do you really think that people don’t want time or money freedom? Is anyone going to say NO to an extra $5,000 or $20,000 a month. I doubt it. They are turning you down because of what they will be required to do in order to achieve the success they desire.
But when people are given a system that they can plug into, they see a way to reach their goals without all the hassles of chasing their friends and family or being a telemarketer. All the heavy lifting has been done for them.
Here's the bottom line; systems will out perform talent, ability and even genius each and every time, hands down.
The real key to getting more people to say yes instead of no to your business, is showing them a way to make real money with something they feel comfortable doing. They need to be thinking 'yea, I can do that'. They must be able to envision themselves doing what it takes to succeed and systems let them do exactly that.
