Bad Pitching Doesn’t Just Happen In Baseball
It is World Series time here in America and baseball fans across the country are looking forward to seeing the Giants and Rangers square off. This got me to thinking about pitching, but not the baseball kind. I mean network marketing business pitching and in this case bad pitching.
Bad pitching can cost you the game in your network marketing business
Just like baseball, bad pitching can cost you the game in your network marketing business as well. Your business is not the place to throw slop. Every time you make presentation of your business it should be built on solid fundamentals and practices.
Let me give you a real life example of a bad pitch straight from my email inbox:
I just got involved with this business that I’m really excited about. The company has been around over 15 years doing everything from home loans, car loans, bankruptcies, merchandise sales and a whole host of other products and services.
They just changed their business model so that we can have the opportunity to basically work with them, making money from everything they do. And it’s completely in our spare time, at our leisure, helping them market the hundreds of products and services they provide. It never costs us a dime and they do most of the work i.e. they close the loans, they prepare the bankruptcy petitions, they complete the credit repairs, they fill the merchandise orders…
and we make money from EVERYTHING, How Much??… Anywhere from about $40 for a Bankruptcy to around $1,5000 for a home loan.
I’ve already earned my first check!
They’ll GIVE you,, your own FREE, 60 plus, page website, (like mine http://allsolutionsnetwork.com/cgi-bin/d2.cgi/SG11739/moremoney.htm, each page offers their many various products and services but…
each and every page is coded with YOUR name and YOUR personal ID that is automatically generated for you.
All you do is promote your site by placing FREE ads (they even show us where and how to place them).
The business system is so fast and efficient that within 15 minutes of joining, I was in business and had already earned a check.
I’m actually pretty excited. We make money from everything product and service that they provide, no down home loans, car loans, personal loans, credit cards, vitamins, merchandise, personal loans even with bad credit, Bankruptcy, Credit Repair, etc…
We even make money for simply giving away FREE vacation packages and FREE credit repair kits.
This is how they put it– and it makes a lot of sense… It’s their goal for us to make as much money as possible, because The better we do… the better they do! They make money with us, not off us. So, we can be pretty sure that they are doing their best to make this the most easily workable, most effective business system possible.

Obviously, I’ve already joined and it looks pretty good to me. If nothing else, do me a favor and take a look at my site and let me know what you think. It might be something that will work for you, too.
Needless to say this poor marketer didn’t get my business, but they did get a quick trip to my delete file. Let’s take a look at what is wrong with this picture:
- I don’t know this person – they are not credible, because they have not built a relationship with me
- The website link http://xxxxxxxxxxxx.com/cgi-bin/d2.cgi/SG11739/moremoney.htm does not speak professionalism or credibility.
- Because this person has not built value, their recommendation means nothing.
- I did not ask for their solicitation.
- I have not joined their list.
- I did not ask to hear about their business.
This is just a starting point. I’m sure you can find some pitching errors of your own.
So let’s get back to the fundamentals of good pitching.
- Brand yourself – you are the most important part of your business
- Provide value to the market place by helping others become better
- Give people a reason to want to work with you
Anyway, just a few Monday morning thoughts.
