How To Effectively Follow Up With Prospects In Network Marketing Without Being Annoying

Do you have prospects that are sitting on the fence?


Literally, fence-sitters that can't make a decision. 🤔


I want you to think in your head right now…how many people have you talked to that have said they're interested or have played you on a little bit?


They're playing the cat and mouse game and they are leading you on.



How many of those prospects do you have right now?


Do you have a specific number in your head?


In this episode of the Slay Online Sales Series, 👠 I am going to teach you how to keep control of the conversation with your prospect and how you can indirectly get their attention again, even if they've ghosted 👻 you.



Press Play


Here's are some statistics you may not know.


On social media, especially if you're building your network marketing business, it will take 20 times for your prospect to see you or hear from you or make some kind of contact with you before they emotionally make a decision to buy.


Did you know that 80% of sales happen between the 5th and the 12th contact? 



Reaching out is all that is needed for more than 85% of buyers to say “YES” to a meeting or call with a sales rep. 


Get this….48% of salespeople NEVER follow up with a prospect! Why are you leaving money on the table???



AND…you are not annoying your prospects! 50% of buyers actually choose a vendor or rep that reaches out to them or responds back to them first.  



91% of prospects don't mind engaging with a sales rep in the early stage of their journey, including 34% of NEW BUYERS who are particularly interested in engaging with a salesperson early on!


So let's shorten that decision time, increase ⤴️ the conversion rate, and get more yes's + more enrollments + and more sales. 🤑


If you don't have a plan, strategy, script, a process of how you're going to expose and invite, you are not going to stay consistent because the rejection and the no's are going to get you down.


You need to have a process that's going to help you easily rebuttal an objection, or get right to the point, or give that closing script so they say yes.



So let's get right into my 3 favorite ways to make eye contact with those prospects all over again once they've ghosted you.


(Oh! And in case you're wondering what I mean by someone ghosting, it's when the person who you were talking to suddenly cuts all ties and communication with you. They are avoiding your messages or phone calls.)



# 1: 3-3-3 Method


The famous 3-3-3 method …oh wait, I'm the owner of the famous 3-3-3 method 😉.


If you haven't seen the 3-3-3 method, please just go to, and you can get a full, free webinar training on it.


But quickly, just to give you a little bit of an example of what the 3-3-3 is, you're going to go to that prospect's page, social media, whether it's Instagram or Facebook, and you're going to “heart” ❤️  three of their posts.



You're going to comment  📲 on three of their posts and then you're going to reply to three of their Facebook or Instagram stories.


What are we doing here? We're creating the stalker eye 👀 contact.


Yup. Congratulations! You are now officially a stalker and that's okay because after you've done this 3-3-3 Method for three days you're going to go into their messenger next! 


Here is an example script of what you can use to send to them, “Hey Jane, at one point in time you told me you were interested in X. Are you still interested? If not, no worries 😊.”


And then keep it moving.


Now, I want you to know that these prospects are not waiting in their messenger for you to pop up and say hello 👋 just so they can ignore you.


They have life going on, just like I do, because about a week ago my toddler literally decided to take a pen and she colored all over my beautiful, brand new couch.

And so, I had to put my phone down and completely forgot about the conversation that I was just having.  So that's probably happening to your prospects too.


Stop freaking out!

Stop thinking they're in their messenger, trying to ignore you because they're not.

# 2: Tag Them On An Inspirational Quote 


This one is my favorites!


See, I want my prospect to know I'm thinking 💭 about them and I want them to know they're in my head.


Most of the time, people are looking for attention, so let's give it to them. And then, you're going to 3-3-3 them again and you're going to hit them up with the same message again.



# 3: Stick To The Point 


I know sometimes it can be like “I don't know if I'm saying the right thing,” and “Is it the right time,” and “I'm stressing out.”


Stop it ✋ Every single prospect that you have, you should treat the same.


👉 If they give you a money objection, what's the response that you have?

👉 If they're excited about learning more, what's that response?


❓ Where are you going to take them?

What do you say?

❓When do you ask for the close?



If you don't have that consistent formula that you're going to go to every single time, you're going to get frustrated, and you're going to probably end up quitting.


How do I know? Because that was me.


Remember Heeler, without a plan, without being focused, without having a consistent strategy, or without knowing exactly how you're going to show up on social media, you are going to feel like a fish out of water.
