pexels-photo-255488The number one struggle for most network marketers is having a sufficient amount of leads to discuss their network marketing business.

Most individuals who join a direct sales business are told to make the dreaded list.  Then you have to call everyone up on the list and your family is wondering what happened that you joined one of those “pyramid schemes”.

So, if you prospect your family and friends and they say, “No”.  Then you need to leave the rest of the people on your list alone.

Well, then how do you find leads to grow you business.  You say to yourself, if other people have been successful building a network marketing downline, then you should be able to.  The last time you checked, you didn’t see that the person who did this had superpowers.

In the new marketing world, the best customer is an informed customer.  Most people will make a decision if they are really interested if they have the right information.  They want to know that this can work for them.

We use Hubspot in the marketing of our small business pool service business.  In the Hubspot training,  they emphasize  that providing information is the best way to approach new customers.
