You might be like me and you may have be trained to answer that question in a way that many Network Marketers use but don’t get them any good results.
I was trained to ask them what they mean and then turn the tables on them and say.
“Oh the guy at the top makes all the money?”
“That sounds a like a job.”
That sort of rebuttal does 2 things:
1. It makes you feel good.
2. It raises their resistance.
It got very popular with this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zZiw15VgWoI
Turning the tables on someone ultimately makes them feel bad.
You may remember the quote by Maya Angelou:
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
Using that rebuttal will make them feel bad and why would ANYONE do any business with someone that made them feel bad?
You heard this before:
People do business with people they know, they LIKE and trust.
Maybe they will join your MLM… Just not with you.
So instead of using a rebuttal that makes you sound smart and makes them feel bad say something else.
Now remember pyramid schemes are illegal so your MLM is not pyramid. So whenever someone asks me if it’s a pyramid, I just tell them the truth. And the truth will set you free.
“Sorry, I can’t help you if you are looking for a pyramid. This isn’t one.”
I don’t care if they say it like it’s a legitimate question or if they have negative tone and say “this isn’t one those pyramid things is it?”
Instead of raising their resistance, telling them the truth will lower it.
If they keep wondering whether it is a pyramid or not, you can educate them on the difference between a pyramid and MLM.
But remember, when you are explaining the difference, don’t make them feel bad, don’t tell them that their job is a pyramid or anything silly like that.
If you want to learn more about what a pyramid REALLY is read the Wiki about it here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pyramid_scheme
There is even a wiki describing the difference between Illegal Pyramids and MLM here: http://www.wikihow.com/Distinguish-Between-a-Pyramid-Scheme-and-Multi-Level-Marketing
That is the simple no nonsense way of answering that question that doesn’t make your prospect feel bad.
Do think that way of responding is better than saying, “Your job is pyramid, corporate america is a pyramid!”
