Freddy Firehoser is everywhere!  

This time he appears on InYourFacebook with an amazing offer – no website, no recruiting and the ability to make $3500 in 7 days, all by dialing a number that is so legit.  He even offers to answer questions!

This type of marketing is so common that we may have stopped paying attention to it.

As W.C. Fields said, “In the Middle Ages, drunkenness was so common it went unnoticed.”

Tom 'Big Al' Schreiter teaches you how to succeed in MLM and network marketing by learning a few basic network marketing skills. A good definition of firehosing is ‘offering your solution before you learn about your prospect’s problem.’

Freddy’s approach raises some useful questions for all network marketers …

  • Should I learn if my prospect has a problem before I offer a solution?
  • Should I learn how to build trust with some conversation before I present my opportunity?
  • Should I learn how to capitalize at the beginning of a sentence?
  • Is it a good idea to make my presentation all about myself or should it be about my prospect?
  • Does the phrase “so legit” automatically raise questions about my honesty?
  • Should I learn how to spell “you”?
  • And the best one … If there is no recruiting, should I be recruiting people by sending them this?  Or if I’m sending them this, should I stop saying “no recruiting”?

We’ll never ever figure out the firehosers.

And lucky for us, we don’t have to.  All we have to do is find people who are looking for more and help them find it.

If you’d like to learn how to find those volunteers with no firehosing and no rejection, you’ll want to check out Big Al Skills or join the forum for MLM professionals at Big Al Training.

PS:  Do you have a good firehoser story?  Please share it with all of us in the comment section.  Thanks!
