Following Up: 6 Important Questions

    Published on:

    Now that you have fine tuned your following up skills, I know you still might have some doubts about following up and keeping the conversation going when you’re recruiting prospects for your Network Marketing business, so I am going to share some common questions about following up  – and their answers – with you.

    1. Question: I am totally failing at following up and now the fear of failure is stopping me from continuing. Can I recover?

    Answer: Of course you can! You have to frame the failure differently. I stopped being terrified of failure when I realized that we never lose – we win or we learn. With that mentality you won’t be able to be beaten, because there is no such thing as failure.

    2. Question: How can I stay motivated to follow up?

    Answer: Give yourself some small actions to build momentum. When you feel exhausted, one little win that moves you towards your goal will motivate you to keep going. You don’t have to do everything in one day. 

    3. Question: How do I offer support to my downline and not lose sight of continuing to build my business

    Answer: Love your existing team, but kick them out of the nest. It’s time for you to bring in a new team by starting a couple hundred conversations and sponsoring 10-20 of those people over the course of the next 90 days. It’s easier to give birth than to raise the dead!

    4. Question: I give out a lot of samples of my products but most of my prospects don’t experience a change while using the sample. How can I remove the objection that the product doesn’t work?

    Answer: With clinical studies, testimonials and before and after results. I take a lot of products that don’t make me feel anything, but I know they must work and be good for me based on published data like this.

    5. Question: When reaching out to influential people, they will often immediately

    ask if I am approaching them about a business opportunity because they get similar invitations all the time. What should I say?

    Answer: You can decide when you want to make it a business conversation. You can either be straightforward and start out that way, or you can ask them how they are and what they have been up to and be patient, so when the timing is right, you can introduce your opportunity.

    6. Question: Is there a time to stop talking to a prospect? For instance, once they are educated about what you are doing?

    Answer: No! As long as they are alive, don’t stop. Once they understand it, it’s still your responsibility to stay in touch. Just because they aren’t at the right place in their life right now, doesn’t mean they won’t be later

    Hope these answered some of your questions!



    1. Hello Mr. Eric Worre. What a great message.
      I am into the networking but am unable to get down lines. People I prospected rarely come for session and those that shows up never show interest. Most of my friends that I showed the business now avoids me.

      What can I do?
