This report is inspired by an article titled “Do You Know This One Question Can Make You Millions?” by Adam Taha at http://www.betternetworker.com.
I know that I was taught this same question a long time ago, and I’m sure some of you have been taught this question as well. Although it’s a simple question, we often forget it when we become more sophisticated in our businesses.
Adam Taha stated the obvious when he said the following: ”Ready for this question? Cause we sometimes have MLM, Network Marketing rolling in our head, coming out of ears and forget this question: ”So tell me mate, what is the one thing you LOVE doing.”
Do you understand the power in this question? I suspect that you probably don’t if you haven’t been using it. The problem is that, when we ask this question, we forget to stop talking and listen to them. We want to control the conversation and manipulate the outcome of the coversation so it will be beneficial to us. In other words, we ask the question but the answer doesn’t really matter to us because we’re just waiting to implement the next ploy to win a sale or gain a new sign-up.
If you have been asking the right question, have you really been listening to the passion in the person’s voice? Are you being genuinely interested in what he or she says? If you haven’t been doing either or both, then you’ve missed the boat pal. That’s why you really need to read Adam’s article.
Adam continues, “I asked someone this question. Man, did I get it. I asked: ”Oh right. So, you like photography then? Is that the One Thing You Love Doing?“
“That was it people!” said Adam. ”The man suddenly gave one big grin and then started talking how he started photography. How he went on this and that. Then stories of people he met. And how he loved to travel to this place and that place, to take photos.”
“I couldn’t get a word in but hey, I didn’t want to. Honestly, I didn’t want to. He went on for 45 MINUTES! Can you believe this. And when he finished, get ready…when he finished, he said the magic words. The words I have always been waiting for people to say when you sit with them.”
Please read the rest of this story. The question is only powerful if you know how to use it and what to do with the information when the person begins to talk. When you get it, when you understand the power that is there, and when you relax and just listen to people and wait for them to ask you their important question, your sponsor rate won’t be as good as it could be. Also, the rentention rate of your new signups is higher when they feel loyalty to you because you really care about them.
