Melody Thacker
Ohhh, Tony I like this response much better!

I wouldn't be offended by your post card, I think it's a great idea for what you offer.

I do want to make it clear, I didn't think you or anyone else here said or thought I was failing. I was trying to grasp what might be going on in the minds of those folks who had called me.

Thanks for letting me vent here, rofl. I've found your replies very valuable. Wishing you much success in all your endeavors,
Melody

>EX: I was at a diner and saw an ad for a mlm health company. There was contact information. I sent them a postcard promoting our Free Training CD. I hand wrote, just like I said above - my name - my company - and that I saw their ad in the diner and was wondering if they would interested in our leads and/or training. 3weeks later I get a request from that person for our CD. We talked twice - besides running ads in the newspaper, diners, and the net, total action time in building their business was a few hours a week. I invested time, money, and effort. The outcome was not profitable to me as the person was stuck on finding cheap and good leads and advertising methods. I focused on them and their needs and presented some sound solutions to no avail.

>> Thanks Jason, I couldn't agree with you more as this being an ineffective way to recruit. To be honest, I was so shocked and annoyed that someone was calling me for their own benefit.

>>I don't know who these people are or which companies they are with. I didn't give them a chance to tell me. Just because I'm with a nwm company doesn't mean I'm their target market. Your target market has to need and WANT your product or service. I do not! And I'm insulted if they think I'm failing, rofl.
>>
>>I see people who belong to multiple companies and who jump from company to company always searching for the golden opportunity. There is no such thing, these people fail at nwm because of *themselves* not the company, the training etc. No matter how much you want to help people, some will never *get it.* The best training on earth won't help someone if they won't take action...
>>
>>Yes Evan, a true commitment and treating it like a business will reap some great rewards.
>>
>>Tony, how is it reaching out in a truthful and caring way when they are spending *my money* for their own benefit? Seems pretty disrespectful and unethical to me.
>>
>>Sadly but true, these people are obviously desperate for leads and need some good training.

>>Thanks to you all for responding.

Gosh, why should I be happy? I'm simply not interested, don't wish to waste my time hearing all about it plus I'm paying for their phone call!
