Did you know that network marketing has seasons? Network marketing seasons vary from country to country, but follow this pattern:
- January to May -fast business building
- June – August – slow
- September to U.S. Thanksgiving – fast
- Thanksgiving to New Year – slow
Bottom line: It’s generally easier to find new network marketing team members when people aren’t on their summer vacation or enjoying the Christmas season.
Q: “Should I wait until September to begin prospecting?”
A: No, there’s never a bad time to make new friends. Summer and Christmas are great times to meet new people.
Bluntly, I’ve grown to dislike the word ‘prospecting,’ at least as it applies to network marketing. It makes me think that your goal is to search for gold in someone’s pockets, rather than developing a mutually beneficial relationship.
Build relationships and the money will follow.
The best network marketing compensation plans have urgency built in, so it really doesn’t matter what time of year it is.
