What To Do When Your Upline Doesn’t Want You to Use the Internet to Build

A very common question I get from people learn the cutting edge online recruiting methods I teach, has to do with a concern about being scolded by an upline for “choosing a different path.”

For example, I was on a webinar a couple months ago and a woman asked how she should deal with an upline so entrenched in the old way of thinking, she’s afraid the upline might be critical and/or disagree with building online.

In some cases, there are leaders who will understandably monitor every move their reps make, watch their stats, review volume and call and email on a daily basis to see who we have prospected recently or showed the plan to.

You see, I know what I do works and once new reps and customers start rolling in for you, they are going to have questions and most likely, be negative about building the business differently than how they did it back in the ’80s or ’90s.

And this is a position I empathize with, because my upline, (not my company), once threatened me and said that I would lose my business because I was using online marketing methods, they didn’t approve of.

I think this question and issue comes down to this…

How to Use Emails to Create Unshakable Trust with Your Prospects

Let’s get down to brass tacks.

The main reason someone will buy from you, or will NOT…is whether they like and trust you (or do not.) Period.

This is salesmanship 101. And regardless of the media you use – video, email, sales letter, phone, TV, or even face to face – if you don’t create LIKE and TRUST, you ain’t gonna make the sale.

Now, unless you’re talking to someone face to face or over the phone, this is a hurdle to overcome. It’s a heckuva lot easier to do it in person, using your voice and body language, than trying to create a relationship through a monitor.
