Is there any difference between MLM prospecting and MLM sponsoring?

Hello guys,

From my own experience, I know there are so many people who are confused about MLM sponsoring, they do not know what this is. So I thought to write a small article about it and give you some clarity about the difference between MLM prospecting and sponsoring.

So, let’s keep it simple.

When you make an initial contact with somebody, it is prospecting. Let’s say you call your cousin and ask how he or she is doing,how they are getting on with their job, relationship, children and finally you start introducing your life changing opportunity and the wonderful products you are promoting. This is prospecting, not sponsoring.

Prospecting as you can imagine is a lot slower than sponsoring !

Now let’s talk about MLM sponsoring… A sponsor is someone who coaches, motivates and trains the people sponsored in his/ her team. A recruiter just signs people up and in most cases, abandons them. Believe me it happens all the time, too many times this happens. So,you got to be careful who your MLM sponsor is and if you find yourself in this situation then you have to decide if you want to work with people like that or walk out of it.

MLM sponsoring means that you have a system in place and you present that system to others who are interested in your wonderful business opportunity. Usually, an MLM sponsoring system is when people contact you by email,telephone or through your business partners and they want you to inform them about your business opportunity. If you are in MLM already, do you remember the business presentations that were held at your house or your sponsor’s house and where you invited 2-3 people or maybe more? Sit around the table, create a pleasant atmosphere and present your products to them? This is MLM sponsoring.

As you can see now, MLM sponsoring is much faster and it can take your business successful quickly.

I would like to finish my article by sharing with you a great video that will wipe off all your misunderstandings and doubts about MLM sponsoring. This video is by successful network marketer Jim Rohn.

Enjoy it
