Always Acknowledge Their Concern

Once you have presented the information about your company, you will find yourself asking the question…

“Hey, you know what I would really love to work with you. Are you open to seeing what it might be like working together?”

Their answer may be “this just isn't for me,” or “I don't have the money,” or a multitude of other answers.

For all the possible answers, you need to acknowledge their concern.

So, we recommend you to use ”yes, I totally get that,” and then tell them how you used to feel.

All of us have felt that way, especially when we first got started in network marketing.

Maybe it was that you didn’t have time for it.

That was us. We had kids and were working full-time jobs. There was no way that we could fit another thing into our schedules, but we wanted a different life bad enough that we took a look.

So, acknowledge their concern.

Inserting a story can also help with this.

Maybe you're talking to a high-level executive and they think there's no way that they could possibly fit network marketing into their life.

Go find a person at one of your company events who is a CEO in your company and ask them how they got there and what their story is.

And you can use that story.

Don’t Start Arguments

Arguing does not help anything.

Imagine the scenario where someone tells you that they don't have the time for your opportunity.

Maybe you respond with “if you don't change anything, where are you going to find the time?”

That person is going to instantly put up a wall.

If they don't know you, like you and trust you, they’re going to take that response the wrong way.

There is no care and concern in that comment. Instead, it sounds like you’re judging them for what they're doing.

By remaining calm and professional, you give the opportunity for other aspects to work out like using stories and building the know, like, and trust with people.

Because here's the reality of the deal.

No one cares about what you want until they know, like, and trust you. 

So remember that it all boils down to building the know, like and trust with the right people.

The Biggest Objection is Network Marketing

Your biggest objection is not time.

It's not money.

It's network marketing. That is your biggest objection.

People don't understand it.

Maybe Aunt Susie did it and lost a bunch of money.

Maybe Uncle Bob did it and bought a bunch of products that he still has in his garage and he's told everybody about it.

So, it's network marketing is the objection.

So how do you get around this to build your business?

How do you find more people?

Well, you figure out who your perfect prospects are.

When we started building our businesses online, we didn't understand that concept.

We didn't understand that not everybody was our perfect prospect. Not everybody needed our products, and not everybody wanted to quit their nine to five.

That's not how the world works.

We're looking for a very small percentage of people.

You've got to figure out who your perfect prospect is. And for us, that was network marketers.

We could teach network marketers to build their businesses online and guide them toward what was working for us in building our businesses.

These were our perfect prospects.

So we stopped having to deal with the network marketing objection.

Figure out who your perfect prospects are and build a new audience. Build influence with those people so that when you promote to those people your offer, which could be your products or your company, then they will actually take a look.

And when you build on social media, it builds faster because you can film a live video and there is going to be people that see it on the replay.

It's going to be on social media for years to come.

And so it creates leverage because that stays there.

So you're using the tools of social media to build the know, like and trust with hundreds of thousands of people.

They're seeing you online, they're seeing you in their newsfeed, they're seeing you in their stories, they're seeing you on TikTok, they're seeing you everywhere.

And if you position yourself as someone that can help them get what they want, it's going to build the know, like and trust faster.

Hey, hey, welcome to today’s episode. My name is Brandy Shaver. I’m one of the founders of Beach Boss Influencers, and today we are talking about the best tips on handling rejection and moving forward as a network marketer in your business. Now, first off, there’s always going to be rejection, right? That’s how it works. Not everybody’s going to be ready to do what you’re doing, but I wanna share with you a couple of our best tips on how to handle rejection like a pro and start to grow your business quicker, faster. Rank, advance without being a spammy, Tammy, that’s our game, right? So number one, always acknowledge their concern. Once you have presented, once you have, um, you know, sharing the information about your company, and you’ve asked the question, Hey, you know what I would really love to work with you? Is this, are you open to, you know, looking like what this might look like working together?

And if their answer is, you know what, this just isn’t for me, or, I don’t have the money, or, you know, whatever it might be, I need to talk to my husband. I don’t have time for this. All of those things acknowledge the concern, okay? So I want you to use, oh, yes, I totally get that, right? And then put in how you felt, because all of us have felt that way, especially when we first got started in network marketing. Maybe it was, you know what, I don’t have time for this. That was me. I didn’t have time for this. I had six kids. I was working a full-time job. My husband was working four jobs. There really was no way that I could fit another thing into my schedule, but I wanted a different life bad enough that I took a look, right? So, acknowledge their concern.

That’s the first thing, okay? Now, with that, you’re going to insert a story. So I totally get that. I felt the same way, right? I was working all the time. I had six kids. I was running in 2000 different directions. I totally get it right. You can, you can insert whatever story you want, and this is why you go to invents because you can insert other stories, right? Maybe you’re talking to a high level executive and they’re like, listen, you know, I’m the c e o of this company. There’s no way that I could possibly fit network marketing into my life. I’m barely hanging onto my family and all the things that I need to be doing, right? Well, you’re gonna find at one of your company events that there is a c e o in your company, and how they got there, what, what is their story?

And you can use that story, okay? So I felt the same way and tell, I found insert, you know, the story, okay? Now, we don’t wanna argue. That’s the second tip. Arguing does not help anything. Imagine if someone says to you, you know what? I don’t have the time for this. And you’re like, well, where are you? Go, you know, if you don’t change anything, where are you gonna find the time? That to me, instantly is gonna put up a wall. And if I don’t know you, like you and trust you, if you said that to me, I’d be like, you are a total a-hole, right? Like, there’s no care and concern in that comment, okay? It’s just, you know, you’re, you’re basically judging them for what they’re doing. Also, when you’re, when you are, when you’re not arguing, you know, that’s when things can work out using stories and, you know, and just building the no, like, and trust with people. Because here’s the real reality, reality of the deal. No one cares about you want what you want until they know, like, and trust you. And if you haven’t built the relationship with them, it isn’t going to matter what you want. Okay? Now, I have a perfect story for this. I started in network marketing, did really well for the first eight months, made some incredible money, enrolled a lot of people, and then it kind of started to go backwards because I didn’t have any more people to talk to. I didn’t have any more people that knew liked me and trusted me. So I went cold prospecting. Now, when you go cold prospecting, you’re hitting up the man at the, you know, at the gas station or you’re going to the mall, you’re bugging the waitress at the restaurant, right?

Well, they don’t have a relationship with you. They don’t know you, they don’t like you, and they don’t trust you. So why would they listen to you? Okay? So remember that it all boils down to building the no, like and trust with the right people. And that brings us to number three. Your biggest objection is not time. It’s not money, it’s not, I gotta talk to my spouse, if not any of that bs, right? It’s network marketing. That is your biggest objection. People don’t understand it. Maybe Aunt Susie did it and lost a bunch of money. Maybe Uncle Bob did it and bought, bought a bunch of product that he still has in his garage and he’s told everybody about it, right? So it’s network marketing is the problem. That’s the objection. So how do you get around this, right? How do you get around this to build your business?

How do you find more people? Well, you figure out who your perfect prospects are. Now, when I started building my business online, I didn’t understand that concept. I didn’t understand that not everybody was my perfect prospect. Not everybody needed my product, and not everybody wanted to quit their nine to five, right? Not, that’s not, that’s not how the world works. We’re looking for a very small percentage of people. You’ve got to figure out who your perfect prospect is. And for me, that was network marketers, okay? I could teach network marketers how they could build their businesses online and not even teach, but basically guide them to what was working for me in building my business and understanding how social media worked and building a new network of people, okay? That were my perfect prospects. So I stopped having to deal with the network marketing objection.

Why network marketing, right? Like if you have to drag somebody across the line with, with why network marketing and then get them started, and then all the things, it’s harder, right? Figure out who your perfect prospects are and build a new audience, build influence with those people so that when you promote to those people your offer, which you know, could be your products, it could be your company, then they will actually take a look. And when you build on social media, it builds faster because you do, for instance, I’m gonna do this live video, right? I’m gonna do this video and there’s going to be people that see it on the replay. It’s going to be on social media for years to come. I don’t have to re-present, I don’t have to redo the objection, um, handling deal here, right? And so it creates leverage because that stays there.

So you’re using the tools of social media to build the no, like and trust with hundreds of thousands of people without you actually standing in front of hundreds of thousands of people, right? They’re seeing you online, they’re seeing you in their newsfeed, they’re seeing you in their stories, that they’re seeing you on TikTok, they’re seeing you everywhere. And if you position yourself as someone that can help them get what they want, it’s going to build the no like and trust faster. Okay? So that is the best tips on rejection and moving forward.
