If I could only count the number of emails from network marketers that describe how to build perceived credibility. We really need to break this down.
What is the definition of perceived? In this case in means; To interpret or look on (someone or something) in a particular way. The Definition of credibility is; the quality of being trusted and believed in.
Yet, in the context of these emails, “which often contradict themselves within the same paragraph,” we are told to beg, borrow or steal this credibility.
We are going right back to the “Fake it Till You Make It Network Marketing Crowd!” Credibility has essentially two components trustworthiness and expertise.
By sending out the emails to you and I telling us to fake credibility in our network marketing business, it begs to ask the question, is the person sending them trustworthy or nothing more then a scam artist?
The second part expertise, this is simple to solve, with the right training, so why fake it. When you implement perceived credibility into your network marketing methods, you are in essence setting yourself up for failure long term!
Think about it, you sponsor Joe, because of a relationship that was built on false pretenses. Once this is discovered, where does it really leave you?
Once your trustworthiness is gone, it does not matter what you do, you’ve forever destroyed any trusting relationship with an individual!
So you have to search your soul and determine, is a short term gain really worth it if you have to sell your soul to get it?
You can build credibility in the network marketing industry by becoming knowledgeable in all aspects of it. By becoming as true network marketing professional, putting others first.
