How To Gain Confidence and Believability When Sharing Your Opportunity

Today, I’ve got a tip for you that is going to help you be more calm, comfortable and confident when you’re showing an opportunity presentation to people.  It’s also going to make you more believable.

How would you like to set yourself apart from 90% of network marketers when you’re showing an opportunity presentation?

Here’s how:  Make Money.

Make money, so you’re able to say when you’re talking with someone, “Yeah, I have made some money.”

Now it doesn’t have to be thousands of dollars that you’ve made, but having a personal testimonial, not just for your product, but for the opportunity itself by being able to say you made a few hundred bucks last month, or this month, or whatever is huge, because 90% of the network marketers can’t say that.

Most “entrepreneurs” in this industry don’t make money because they are too busy trying to figure it all out, or trying to recruit with no results, or are busy doing other unproductive things, so they never actually get into profit.

This might sound crazy to some leaders, but if you haven’t yet made money in your business, I would encourage you to back up a second from recruiting.

The number one way to actually get into profit in network marketing is to move a product.  Typically, what I’ve seen is the highest profit margin you’re going to be able to make is when you personally sell a product to an end user:  to a customer.

I know some of you are averse to selling.   But, let me tell you if you do that, not only do you legitimize your business in the eyes of your prospect, you’ll legitimize your business in the eyes of everybody, and it’s going to give you more confidence.

Making sales is going to give you a testimonial.

It’s going to give you a case study that you can tell that person if they ask you, “Are you making any money in that thing?” that yeah, you made some.

Again, it doesn’t have to be a ton of sales.

Listen, for years I was taught that the answer to that question, “Are you making any money?” is a bit of a round about answer that goes something like this:

“Well whether I make money or not is really irrelevant. It’s what you’re going to do with the opportunity. Now, I can’t guarantee whether you’re going to make money or not either way.”

I still agree with that answer, but it sure helps to be able to say that answer this way:

“Whether I make money or not is really irrelevant, because it’s not a real predictor of what you’re going to do. I can show you case studies of people who have made a ton of money, buy the question is, what are you going to do with the opportunity? No one can guarantee what money you’re going to make, but I did make a few hundred bucks last month.”

That’s a lot more powerful.

I hope this helps you get your mindset going…

If you’re not making money, go make some money. Do something to generate some volume, develop some customers so you can have the case studies, and then when you’re showing your opportunity, you can speak with confidence that you’re making money and they can see that you’re serious as a business owner.
