Did You Say Too Much Instead of Listening?

Find out what your prospect is looking for first.

Then you will see if you have something that may help them.

Or are they just kicking tires! You can find out if you will listen.

Marketing Is about the Product. Anyone saying different is Wrong!

The next thing is can the process be duplicated by novice associates.

It has always been about Product, Process of marketing and Personnel.


(Trusted ownership and company soundness)

 Without these three your business will not last!

If you have a fair sized organization…30…40…or even more…and:

- you still aren’t making the checks that you deserve.

- you spend tons of time with your team…but they just can’t seem to take leadership…

- you feel like you are replacing people every 3 months…

You are probably going OVERBOARD with this one tactic.

And it’s destroying your long term success.

No one will tell you this in your organization…because it goes against the grain.

But it’s the truth.

So here it is: You might be talking about your opportunity TOO MUCH.

That’s right.

Call me crazy…but not until you hear me out. Then you can make up your mind for yourself.

If the number one product you talk about is your opportunity

You are selling the opportunity of making money.

And if someone has no other reason (no other pain being solved or pleasure being given) than the chance of making money…

Who do you think they will try to find for their teams? (People like them)

What do you think will happen if they don’t start making money right away? (They leave).

What do you think happens to the foundation of your business? (It crumbles).

What happens to your cash flow? (It stops).

Not good.

Your opportunity is like a pearl.   Don’t toss it in front of just anyone.

Instead…deliver your opportunity at the exact time you see the proper signs.

Deliver it to people who can’t say no because they are so ready to join.

And never have to try and keep quitters from quitting. (You won’t have any).

Find out the 3 signs that someone is actually ready for an opportunity on video #8 around the 12 minute mark…

Here is the way to get the most out of your efforts!

How serious are you about your business?

Press Release comments:

A very interesting Press Release, Tony. You are right about the necessity of Listening. I have noticed that many of the people I am in contact with seem to have no need, at the moment, for what I have to offer. In due course, they might have that need or meet someone whose needs I can fill. Curtiss Martin

Hi Tony..Thank you for sharing your information with us..You have made some good points.Janice Mobsby

Great PR Tony, excellent points you make about talking too much instead of listening, and then when you do talk you keep talking about the opportunity. No wonder team member drop off - you've missed the point why they joined your team in the first place (and odds are you didn't know their WHY in the first place). Thanks for sharing!Mike Conkey

Thanks to all who have commented and shared Nice to meet Merle Gibbins from UK and all of you in IBO TeamTony Downs

Great PR Tony, and I agree some people are not getting to know peoples needs and wants first, before approaching them with their opportunity. Thanks for sharing.Merle Gibbins

It is true Tony Downs Your listening should give you the right approach to help other make a good decision. Most are wary of new things and surely careful when it comes to spending their money. Devy Brown

You are doing fine Tony. You add value in your posts and by linking with others and viral commenting and sharing you will be an asset to the members here. It is true many are just propositions to MOVE MONEY instead of products. Many of the products are of no use to those offline. Therefore their market is limited.JOHN E BROWN

I'm kinda new here and did not know what to expect. This is a great place and Thanks for the great comments I really appreciate it. Most places people just hot and run but on IBO we have thinkers, readers and honest sharing! Randy Ireland, Bernadardus Andreas, David Sharp, George Pierce Thank-you my friends.Tony Downs

A pearl of a Press Release, Tony, thank you.George Pierce

We all have a role to play, I know some want to do it all, hahaBernardus Andreas

There are differences between what "advertisers" and what "marketers" do. Advertisers try to steer the trending market and True marketers are those who have real products to sell and the passion to move the products. Many just promote the business of making money, not the product.Tony Downs

This is a good marketing press release. I love it.Vanessa Wesley
