How To Respond When Someone Says Network Marketing Is A Pyramid Scheme

How To Respond When Someone Says Network Marketing Is A Pyramid Scheme

Have you ever had anyone burst your network marketing bubble when they respond to your enthusiasm with, “oh network marketing is a pyramid scheme.”

Talk about deflating right?

I remember one of the first few times I heard this response.

I remember feeling such a sense of defense and irritation with the person I was speaking to.

How could people be so naive?

This business was amazing!

I knew how network marketing had changed so many people’s lives.

I saw people go from rags to riches, just by being consistent in their business.

So how come the general public gave such a bad name to the industry as a whole?

Didn’t they know the power of this industry?

Well there was an even better question than this that I truly needed to be asking.

And that question is…

What response should I give when I hear the words, “isn’t network marketing a pyramid scheme?”

And call me crazy, but I know if I’ve heard this response from prospects before, I know other people are hearing it as well.

So I figured I’d sit down and record a valuable training to help you figure out the best way to respond to this objection.

‘Cause if I’ve learned anything about network marketing, it’s that you need to know the best way to handle situations like this.

The coolest thing about what I share in this video is that it will help you weed out the serious vs. not so serious prospects you will meet along the way.

‘Cause let’s be honest.

Not everyone is cut out for your business.

So learning the best way to respond I’m this type of situation will help you stop wasting time.

And I gotta give credit where credit is due.

I learned this key phrase from Tom ‘Big Al’ Schreiter and Dale Moreau.

They are both masters of their trade and taught me a lot about how words impact prospects.

Check out what I share in this video about how to respond to this common objection.

So there you have it.

That’s my tried tested and true response to the question, “isn’t network marketing a pyramid scheme?”

But I wanna warn you.

If you are hearing this objection frequently, you may want to examine what it is that you are saying to prospects.

There is most likely something amiss with your presentation skills that need to be honed in for better results.

And even more important…

You may want to consider the kind of people you are talking to.

Are they really the most suitable people for your business?

I actually shared in this video about how you can weed out people even before you start talking to them.

Have people actually search you out instead of you constantly looking for new prospects everyday.

If you want to get your hands on a training that will help you become the hunted instead of the hunter in your network marketing business, look no further.

I got you covered in this email boot camp that I can send straight to you.

It’s a total game changer for your business!

Now Go Build Your Empire!

  1. I also have heard this objection or similar ones more times than I care to count. And I agree with you that it’s important to be prepared for it, or for other common objections, so you’ll know what to say when it happens.
