12 Success Questions to Prospecting in MLM

  1. Where are you from?

  3. What does that entail?
  4. How long have you been doing that?

  7. How do you like what you are doing?
  8. Have you ever thought about doing something else?
  9. Are you familiar with the network marketing industry?

  11. Why do you think you weren’t successful?
  12. Would you be open to looking at another company if it didn’t have those obstacles?

Let me elaborate on these questions. REMEMBER; work on becoming a better listener.

Do not interrupt and try and keep the questioning natural.

Show interest in what your prospect has to say.

People love to tell you their story and

depending on how they answer these questions

you will know if they may qualify for your team!

question 1 : where are you from?

People like to tell you about their home.

If you have nothing to add to their answer move to the next.

question 2: what type of work do you do?

this is a great question.this is where we start getting to

feel out where they are in their business life.

question 3: what does that entail?

now this question is only needed when

the answer they give to question 3 isnt

self explanatory.

question 4: how long have you done that?

this will help lead into…

question 5: What did you do before that?

this question only makes sense if they

have worked their current job for less than 5 years.

if they have been at their current occupation for 25 years skip to the next question.

which is question 6: How are you being affected by whats happening with the economy?

this is a great question. Now we are getting into the


real depth of getting to know someone.

Depending on their answer to this we

can really start feeling the prospect out.

question 7: How do you like what you are doing?

Here we go folks. This will really open the person up.

Pay attention here to any emotions your

prospect shows.

question 8: Have you ever thought about doing something else?

[pinup-pro type=”pinit” pin_url=”CURRENT” pin_image_url=”http://www.workwithpaulbutler.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/Success-quotations.gif” pin_counter=”horizontal” pin_desc=”3success is about Building strong relationships”]    [pinup-pro type=”follow” follow_name=”paulbutler” follow_size=”pill”]

You really want to delve into this one regardless of their answer to question 7. Here we are just testing the waters.

question 9: Are you familiar with Network Marketing?

the answer to this will range from no experience, many people

have not been exposed to the term in the past, to a negative

feedback. Now see if any negativity is based on personal experience or just not understanding the concept.

question 10: What experience did you have?

Now this question is only valid if they have had any experiences in network marketing. If they have had a bad experience with a prior MLM move to question 11 if not move to 12…

question 11: Why do you think you weren’t successful?

another great question. With this question you will learn

how this person feels about this industry and will open them to the final question.

question 12: Would you be open to looking at another company if it didn’t have those same obstacles?

obviously this question is asked in this way if they have had previous negative experiences with a MLM company. If they have had no experience you would want to rephrase question 12 with a question such as “Would you be open to make extra income with an opportunity that doesnt interfere with what you are currently doing?”

I hope you enjoyed these questions and they help you to build your empire!!

  5. Great post Paul!

    Every networker should memorize a list of questions like this.

    When people focus more on building relationships and assisting others, rather than selling and signing up, is when success starts to happen.

  6. thanks Jeremy.

    People forget that we need to see if people qualify to be on our team and are even open to an opportunity before we present our biz-op to them.

    See you soon bro…Paul

  7. PAL is a group specialising in loans for home purchase. It has a network of shops, cash machine and other outlets in and around the capital city (where it has its headquarters) with all outlets within seventy miles. It monitors interest rates offered by competitors and strives to match or better the lowest rates. This strategy has been successful, but in order to compete more fully, it has introduced a range of customer services, including home insurance. A dedicated unit was established to extend existing benchmarking of price to other aspect of customer requirement. Following a survey, the following factors in addition to price have emerged as being relevant to customers. Delivery. Technical content of literature. Customer service and correspondence. (a) Discuss the use of appropriate performance measures which home insurance could use as part of the proposed competitor benchmarking exercise. For each measure, advice on ways in which subjectivity might be dealt with. (b) Analyse the strategy followed by PAL so far and evaluate the possible effects of actions arising from benchmarking in supporting these strategies.
