It’s that dreaded question that almost every new business owner frets. Its a question that, quite frankly has too much anxiety living around it. That question is “how much money have you made so far?”
If you listen to those that have just started you’ll quite often hear them say:
What do I do if they ask me how much I have made? They won’t want to join me if they know I just started and haven’t made anything yet.
Another thing that people may consider is to blatantly lie about how much they have made. So, this presents itself as an issue that needs to be corrected.
Here’s a quick Facebook Live video that I did to answer this very question.
How To Answer The Question, “How Much Do You Make?”
It’s not hard to just be real and face the fact that you’re on the same path that someone below you will have to travel. Be genuine with the people you talk with throughout your day. It’s actually quite attractive to see and hear the truth spoken.How you answer people's #honest questions determines how far you go in #business and in #life Click To Tweet
This subject of how much money have you made so far is a small subject to write a blog post about. However, when you know the truth about how to answer this question, you’ll know the secret behind success in life.
Now if you’re not a video viewer and just want to scan through this blog post to get the answer to how you should respond to the question of “how much money do you make in your business?” I’ll let you in on the best response…
The Golden Nugget
Here it is…
I’m just starting out but I’ve connected with mentors who have been guiding me through the steps to making my first 6 figure income. Now I can give you access to these mentors and shorten up your learning curve and get you making money right from the start. The choice is yours!
I know you can just tweet this out or copy and paste it into a marketing email. But if people like, know, and trust you, they may also know that you wouldn’t talk to them like this. So find a way to convey this in your own voice. Simple as personalizing it to your personality.
Since this post is all about brevity, you’ll want to remember these guidelines.
- Be completely honest. (honesty pays HUGE dividends)
- Show your prospect that it’s not about the money you have made but how you can help THEM make money.
Most of the time when a question like this is answered, the prospect is either terrified of success in their life, or it’s a safe way to say no to you.
Conclusion To “How Much Money have you made?”
If you provide value to your prospects you will see much more in conversions than if you just say you’re just starting out. Give them a reason to join you. Also, remember that just because they said no to you now doesn’t mean they said no to you forever. Keep being a person of integrity and providing value. Some will join you later, some won’t.
I heard that it takes up to 7 times to present something to someone before making a decision. Those that quit after the 2nd or 3rd attempt are the ones that are part of the masses who fail most of the time.
