MLMGATEWAY for recruiting- my review

If you are in mlm (direct sales), unless you have 100 friends and family that jumped at the chance to join your business opportunity, you have most likely done some research on recruiting from your cold market. A quick Google search will land you at mlmgateway. This website ‘promises’ several new leads per day! Sounds amazing- sign me up! Here are a few things you should know:

  1. Yes, you can join for free, however, you are very limited as to what you can do with a free account. You need credits, which can be purchased in bulk or on a monthly basis. For example, 30 credits will cost you $14 up to 600 credits for $189 or you can subscribe monthly to become a premium member, which starts at $24.95/month. You need these credits to actually send a connect request or accept a request from anyone.
  2. Most of the people on mlmgateway are looking FOR recruits, NOT looking to be recruited. In all reality, unless you live under a rock, you don’t have to search and join a website to find a direct sales company to join. Google will give you hundreds of results and a click on anyone will present someone who will be more than happy to have you join their opportunity. The basic premise of mlmgateway is “you try my opportunity and I’ll try yours.” So if you are not looking to try someone else’s opportunity, you won’t have much luck.
  3. Getting people to reply to you can be tricky. It will cost you 1 credit to send a connect request but 20 credits to accept someone’s connect request. That means if you get 20 people per day that want to connect with you, it will cost you 400 credits to connect with all of them. For this reason, people tend to be a pick picky about which requests they accept.
  4. Having said all of that, there is potential for you to find someone that is an mlm junkie and will join you. Who knows, maybe you will end up with someone that already belongs to 10 direct sales companies but wants to work yours as well. It’s better to have that person on board than not.
  5. There is potential to connect with other people and end up with new customers. You may form a ‘relationship’ through email with someone, discussing your opportunities and you really like the other product, or vice versa, so one of you decides to purchase from the other.
  6. You really have to go into it with an open mind and look at it as a way to get your name seen by others. If you have a great deal to join, put it in your “interested in” comments so it shows up in the members list with your info. Even if you register for free and maybe purchase a small credit package, it may benefit you just by forming relationships. I wouldn’t completely discount it, but start slow. Don’t buy the $180 package and expect recruits to knock down your door.

Quick, turn the other way…she’s going to try to make us buy something!

And this is how most people in direct sales are viewed by their friends and family…as a vampire, trying to attack them and suck their blood to turn them into another mindless, multilevel marketing drone! (Props to Snapchat filters for this pic:))

But seriously, if you are in direct sales, you have probably contacted 100 of your closest friends and family looking for the 1 “yes” amongst 99 “no’s”, made your Facebook announcement, and waited for people to come running to you to buy your great stuff or join your great business opportunity. You’ve had people turn around when they see you, roll their eyes, stop liking your social media posts (“oh God, if I like it, she will think I want to buy it!) and have had people flat out tell you that you are becoming annoying.

The key to becoming successful in MLM is to move away from the warm market- stop bugging your friends and family. Tap into the cold market! Make people come to you. Once you can accomplish this, your warm market will be blown away by your success and their attitudes will change- but it won’t actually matter at that point, you won’t need them (but  you’ll still let them buy or join out of pity).

Anyway, there are two people I have found that have great FREE info on building your team through the cold market Nick Pratt and Ray Higdon. (Note- I am NOT affiliated with either one of these guys- I have only used their FREE videos and information). Both of these websites offer link after link to video after video of good info. Of course, they are both trying to sell their opportunity, so you will run into points where they want you to buy something but there’s so much free info, there is no need to purchase.

Don’t get me wrong, I would like to claim to be an expert, a top earner in my company, but I’m not there yet! Just working my way up like everyone else!
