Attraction Marketing! The Success Formula…

WARNING! I’m all about keeping it real and saying it “just how it is” So what you are about to read might just go against EVERYTHING you’ve been told and taught by your up-line… 

But like I’ve shared in my previous blog posts, it’s kind of my mission & purpose to share what I’m  learning with people who connect with what I’m saying so they can be successful too. So here goes… 

When I first started out in MLM a few years ago, I joined a company selling anti ageing skincare products. I was new but I was willing to work hard, be coachable and follow everything my up-line was telling me.

So I listened to everything and did exactly as instructed.

“Do a home launch, invite invite invite, approach everyone within 3 feet of you and repeat…”

  • Make a list of 100 people 
  • Go to the memory jogger and create another list of 100 people
  • Start to contact EVERY SINGLE PERSON on your list.
  • Invite them to listen to your opportunity
  • Follow up even when they ignore you
  • Start coffee morning events and go and meet complete and utter strangers – invite them to watch your opportunity.
  • Join mother and toddler groups – invite them to watch your opportunity
  • Hand out business cards – leave them EVERY WHERE even in toilet cubicles and ALWAYS leave them on the tip tray when tipping a waiter!

(That last one worked a little too well… I had a waiter call me once but it wasn’t my business opp he was interested in, awkward phone moment, I nearly died!!!) 

Do all of the points above sound familiar?  How do you feel when going through the motions?


When I look back now, I think what a bloody lot of hard work for little reward. But I wanted my business to work I’m not shy of hard work and I knew it wasn’t going to be easy…. so I kept going. 

I wasn’t really enjoying myself and the funny thing is my up-line and I used to chat about how we felt uncomfortable using these methods but we continued to teach them to our new team members because we didn’t know any better.. 

These tactics didn’t sit right with either of us and do you know why? Because most of the time it left us feeling like we had joined the NFL group – NO FRIENDS LEFT.

My up-line would message the Mums of her daughters school friends on Facebook asking them to watch a presentation and I knew she found it hard to contact people knowing she needed more numbers to watch her presentation!

Then she would turn up at school and the Mum’s would AVOID HER!!!! 

I was no better… I would reach out to people on Facebook, people I hadn’t spoken to in ages and strike up a conversation in the hope they would ask me what I was up to… so I could invite them to look at an opportunity video.

It wasn’t long before I realised some friends no longer asked me how my business was going in case I launched into a pitch. I noticed that friends stopped telling me what a shit their boss was for fear of me yet again saying “there is another way” and inviting them to an opportunity meeting!

It was just a horrible feeling thinking that people couldn’t speak to me or had to avoid me in fear of me trying to pitch them.

Can you relate to this? 

Don’t get me wrong I signed people up, I even grew a successful team, but it was hard work and there was one problem, most of my down-line either left or quit. They found it hard to recruit or approach people and probably for many of the same reasons we’ve talked about above.

Here’s what I learned; 

  • I couldn’t stand being avoided by people. 
  • I had run out of people to pitch 
  • I was EXHAUSTED having to constantly chase my next recruit

I just knew there had to be a better way… and my up-line knew it too… but what?

Then one evening she messaged me all excited and told me she had found the holy grail and it was called Attraction Marketing.


I plugged in and I took action.

Suddenly, I no longer had that horrible feeling of being avoided because I actually had people coming to me! 

In fact most of my friends have no idea what I do these days… I don’t need to spam it all over Facebook or drop it into every conversation.

I have taken back control of my business and found that people are messaging me asking me what it is I am doing. I am no longer doing the chasing.

The sheer relief and feeling of freedom I now have. It is liberating!! No more getting rejected or people avoiding me over and over again!

And all because my up-line stumbled on a Facebook ad.

The ad talked about how to attract people to join your MLM, how to get people to come you instead of you having to chase them with this of one simple strategy called Attraction Marketing.

The ad was talking about a guy who had recruited over 1732 people in one month, into his MLM, using this simple on-line strategy, Attraction Marketing. He made some grand claims, that if you followed his simple strategy formula for success you would never look back. 

Initially I thought… “bloody hell another ‘internet guru’ with a magic solution” but I was willing to take a look, I knew my up-line wouldn’t recommend anything dodgy and I knew she would have been “trying it on for size” before she shared it.

I also knew that she and I were at the end of our old school recruiting methods, we both knew the internet was the way forward we just didn’t know how to do it and she was pretty convinced this was the answer.  

So I decided to just go for it, what did I have to loose? I jumped straight in and got myself a copy of an E-book called the Attraction Marketing Formula which included a coaching programme and 3 calls with a qualified coach. I think I paid $47! Bloody bargain! 

I can not tell you how grateful I am that she came across that Facebook ad, took the plunge into Attraction Marketing and then shared it with me. (her name is Emma by the way and she in the picture at the top of this article.)

After discovering Attraction Marketing I came to the realisation that most people are building and teaching the “old school way” because its all they know! Don’t get me wrong, some people have major success with these old school methods of recruiting. But they don’t work for all, I only had to look at my diminishing business for proof of that.

Shouldn’t we as leaders be teaching our new team members all methods of lead and prospect generation? 

Bottom line.. there is no need for me to continue with old school recruiting methods anymore. I have leveraged automated systems that do all the heavy lifting for me. I learnt to ‘ Work Smarter, Not Harder.’ 

After discovering Attraction Marketing it has literally changed everything!

I have quit my job and become a full time, beach loving flipfloppreneur 🙂
