Network Marketing Prospecting: Their First Impression

If you are wanting to gain more knowledge on network marketing prospecting, then there is one major factor you must learn. In network marketing prospecting, many people are unaware to even consider this factor, and once learned, it will help you increase your numbers with prospects. What is this factor in network marketing prospecting?

Watch “Network Marketing Prospecting| Their First Impression” to learn more first:

The first impression a person gets when meeting you, will be what dictates their actions from then on. It was once said that a person has already made their decision about you within 30 seconds of meeting you.

Are you wondering why so many people say “Yes” and then never show up? This is because they never planned on it anyway. They say “yes” to give you what you want, and of course never show.

So what do we do about this issue of first impressions?

Well, since you know now you MUST make a good first impression, perhaps not jumping to the punchline too quickly can work in some cases. Starting a non-business type conversation is best with many people. Once the conversation is well, the prospect is comfortable and you tell they have made a decision they can trust you, then approach the pitch in a non-threating way.


Also, if you are going to be network marketing prospecting professionals, perhaps dress like one. Let them get the vibe you think like them.

Every prospect is different so be sure your first impression is right. They will make their minds up quickly by the vibe they get.

Some people can’t even “Give Away” their product because the way they approach it is a feeling of sales to their network marketing prospects.

Keep in mind the person decides his/her opinion of you quickly, so get a good opinion…. then simply say “Just curious, would you happen to know anyone who is open to making extra money”?… of course if that is the way to handle that situation. Sometimes, you need to be the judge of what to say, and when to say it.

    Jaye, I learned magic sequences of words to use when meeting people to create that good first impression that you write about within seconds by reading and studying a book written by Tom “Big Al” Schreiter entitled “How To Get Instant Trust, Belief, Influence And Rapport” available at

    Jaye, I have heard of this strategy before and yes I
    think it is the way to get to know someone and
    kind of feel them out to see just how they react to
    you. You are right about how you present yourself
    and how you dress for whatever situation you are
    going into. You should never look like you just got
    out of bed, even if you did.
    Thank you for the great advice and I will keep coming back to see what tips you have for us.

    Hi Jaye,

    I always know I am going to get some good information from your posts and videos. Thank you so much for sharing.

    It is true that people unfortunately do make up their minds very quickly and yes, you do have to adjust to how you will react to them. A learned art, I believe.

      A learned art indeed, but learned by experience mostly. Thanks Monna

    Great post about how to approach a prospect. There is always a critical moment where a prospect either will confess or complain about something and that’s the right moment when to present your opportunity. The critical moment happens at different times with people.

    great information for beginners and a wake up call for the ‘older
    ones’. I don’t remember anyone telling me this ever when I was networking. Thanks!
