Maybe you are already in the fun and exciting Multi-Level Marketing world but are looking for some MLM Sponsoring tips so that you can effectively grow your team.
Maybe you want to become a network marketer but aren’t sure where to start; you hear about others growing their teams but you don’t know how. You need some MLM sponsoring tips about sharing the opportunity with others after you yourself have signed up.

Whether you are looking to become a SeneGence distributor too (click here to learn more or get started) or maybe are a part of another successful company such as Rodan and Fields, Maskcara, or Mary Kay, I hope you find these tips helpful
My Top 8 MLM Sponsoring Tips
I strongly believe that if you can shift your focus away from yourself and towards others, it will change the way you recruit or sponsor new team members. If you only care about hitting a certain rank, making a certain commission check, qualifying for a certain trip – you are missing the point and going about it backwards.
If you genuinely care about others, are passionate about your business and the opportunities it can bring for someone else, and are willing to put time and effort into helping people get started with your company, all of those bonuses mentioned above are going to come your way by default. Appealing to what others want is the key here – don’t believe me? Read Dale Carnegie’s book How to Win Friends & Influence People .
Trust me, being a considerate person is simply the way to go! Not only will you feel good about the way you are recruiting, but you will be benefiting others AND you will stand out in a sea of posts shouting “Join my team before it is too late aggghhh!”
Ready for my 8 tips? Read below!
Tell Others About the Opportunity
- If you aren’t talking about your company’s distributor opportunity, someone else is – get out there! If you think the opportunity you are sharing is amazing, why keep it a secret?!
- Don’t wait until a customer has purchased, or until someone “seems” like they might be interested in hearing about your wholesale account/distributor options – just tell them! It is simply sharing potentially helpful information
- It is not up to us to decide who gets to know about our company; it is up to us to share, so that others can make an informed decision
- Example: Waitress offers coffee to everyone at a diner; if someone says no thanks she isn’t personally offended – maybe that person wants coffee another time, and she continues to offer everyone coffee. You can’t tell who is going to be a potential teammate just by looking at them!
Have a Genuine Interest in Others
- Signing others up is about THEM, not you (“Join MY team” is missing the point – they don’t care about YOUR team, they care about how this opportunity might be a great fit for THEM)
- What are they looking for? Confidence? Income? Share stories based on THEIR needs and interests
Keep Information Minimum and Relevant
- Easy way to do this is to say, “I am so excited for you! I could talk about this awesome biz all day – tell me, what specific questions do you have and let’s start there”
- Don’t overwhelm others by jumping into every single detail about the business; tell them what they need to know, what they want to know, and go from there. Make sure to include all costs associated and make accurate representations about the opportunity, but if you start diving into how you schedule posts using HootSuite, and specific steps for how to earn a company car, you are losing people who are like, Woah – I just want to kind of casually sell this stuff to my friends
- Have a link or somewhere that points to more info. – this is an easy way to get info. out without rambling; have a blog with a career section, point people to your company website, etc.
- People get busy, forget to read messages, wrong timing
- Follow up casually and keep convo going
- Several of my team members and I talked on and off for 6 months before signing up; I sent messages and heard crickets but when and if the timing is right, you will be glad that you didn’t leave someone hanging and that you followed up!
- Google “The Fortune is in the Follow Up” – so many amazing tips
Share What Sets You Apart
- Lots of distributors, why should someone sign up with you?
- I’ve had distributors sign up because they liked my YouTube Video, or professional account, or quick follow up, etc. – people choose sponsors for so many different reasons
- Figure out YOUR strengths and share (example: if you are great at YouTube, tell others that you can help them there too! If you know how to throw an amazing Facebook Party, brag about it!)
Make Your Own Business Awesome
- Your own business is what will attract others – have fun, kick butt
- You need to be walking the walk to expect others to join you; if you aren’t active in your business, why would someone want you to sponsor them?
- Educate yourself, seek out trainings, work your biz, and share all of the amazing things that this company is doing for you – people are watching
Have a System Set in Place for New Distributors
- Basically, be a great sponsor! Don’t sign someone up and leave them hanging – that doesn’t benefit anyone!
- Help them start with a bang; the first week is so important because everyone is excited and ready to go
- Explain your company’s back office, go over basics
- For example, I have a FB album that goes over step by step what you can do to get started
- Learn THEIR specific goals – again, not about you
Bonus Tip: Make Goals!
- If you are serious about growing your team, commit to achieving this!
- Make monthly goals, write them down, and refer back to them often
- Remember: sharing a business opportunity is about OTHERS; have others best interests at heart, and the rest will fall into place leaving you with mutually respectful, and beneficial, relationships
