We’ve driving along going to the beach. Me, Mark Januszewski, The World’s Laziest Networker, the daughters Chelsea and Jackie. Family beach day!
I look in the rear view mirror to smile at the girls and all I see is the tops of their heads.
Yes, they are both looking down at their cell phones.
It seems like the whole world is looking down at their cell phones. Make sure your roots are done because that’s all we see anymore.
Even the pig on the plane is on his phone.
What’s happened to human interaction. We’re together in a the car or a restaurant and everyone is Pinning or Facebookin or Tweeting. People don’t ever talk anymore, always with the texting! No one has phone skills anymore.
How about we talk, look at each other, interact.
The thing I love about Network Marketing is you must interact with people to be successful. The face to face, bellybutton to bellybutton works best. So you better know how to do it. You better have the network marketing skills.
Sure there’s those people who build their businesses on the internet. They are always trying to sell you some crappy system, you know who I mean. They tell you that you’re in point and click marketing, but it’s not duplicatable.
Let me ask them, which I have and they never answer me, if your network marketing biz is going so great why are you trying to sell me this secret, lead generator, traffic driving system, or some other crap? Not one of those people have ever responded to those questions, hmmm……
Should one have an internet presence, absolutely. A blog is great, it’s a great way to find interested people. And social media is a must – you’re absolutely conspicuous by your absence on that front. But unless you have the ability to advertise and the online expertise to stay ahead of the technical curve it’s not going to work to build that way exclusively.
All the arrows that you can fit in your quiver are necessary and good to practice.
But you have to know how to talk to people. You have got to know what goes thru a prospects head and what to say to them if you want to be successful.
It’s not only prospects you have to know how to talk you also have to know how to communicate effectively with the people who join your business.
Coaching and excellent communication are a must. They don’t want to see the top of your head.
