How To Deal With Haters in MLM Network Marketing

If you have been in MLM network marketing for any length of time then you have probably encountered your share of haters.

There is a lot of negative information about MLM network marketing, which makes it easy for haters to pile on, even if they don’t really know what they are talking about.

As an MLM network marketing professional it can be difficult to listen to people attack the industry that you believe in. It is even harder if you are a sensitive person, as you might actually take these comments personally.

Here are some tips for how to respond to the haters in MLM network marketing.

The Personal Haters

Probably the first group of haters you will encounter is those that you know personally.

Most people try to grow their MLM network by first talking to their warm market which is their friends and family.

They will probably tell you all of the reasons what you are doing is wrong and how silly you are for getting involved.  They probably said that you’re joining a “scam”.

The way that I deal with the personal haters is to further explain the opportunity and that I have been quite successful in MLM network marketing.

If they use words like “scam” or “pyramid scheme” then you should remind them that there are bad people in nearly every profession.  

Look at any industry that has sales reps like car dealerships or insurance, I can tell you that there are dishonest people everywhere.

The Online MLM Haters

Most of the attacks you will face will come from anonymous critics on the Internet. My advice for dealing with these people is to simply ignore them.  

Most of the time these Internet trolls will remain negative and critical regardless of how you respond. If someone is just there to spread hate, then there is usually not much you can do to change their minds.

The best approach is to remain calm, professional and never lower yourself by resorting to name-calling or other inappropriate comments.

How to Respond to Haters in MLM Network Marketing

Be an MLM Network Marketing Success

You cannot control what other people think of you or your MLM network marketing opportunity, but you can control yourself.

The best way to silence the haters is by succeeding. They won’t have anything to “hate” on if you are successful and even if they do, who cares?

You can be confident and secure that you are good at what you do and that no amount of external criticism can stop that. Usually, when people see you are a success all the hate will go away.

Just Walk Away

The best way to get rid of the haters in the MLM network marketing game is to simply ignore them and walk away.

If you are getting harassed on Facebook or Twitter then block or delete those people from your account and your life.

There are always going to be people that don’t understand or appreciate your MLM network marketing opportunity and that is fine, it is not your job to win the affections of every person. Focus on the love instead of the hate and you will be much more successful and happy.

Have you had an experience with a hater in your life?  That doesn’t quite understand what you do and why you do it?  Please share!

  1. Hey Nate, there are still haters in the world – lol Thanks for the share and sending your message to the tweet birds. By the way, Nate the birds were so happy to get your message they almost bit my fingers – lol

  2. Deleting clowns from your life is the quickest and easiest way to deal with the online hating crowd.

    What great tips Nate.

    Simply block and forget. If you can do this you will be far more likely to have peace of mind, and to not get that riled up over criticism.

    Haters will always hate, so just leave them be, and never allow them into your head.

    Thanks Nate!

      Hi Mazz,

      I struggled for two years with that same problem. Then I finally got over myself and realized that my failure to open my mouth was denying people a gift. Ask yourself these two questions.
      1) If you aren’t sharing your products and your business opportunity, are you sure you are in the right business?
      2) What’s the worst thing that can happen if you share your business opportunity with someone?

      Belief is huge in this business. You have to believe in this industry and you have to believe in your company.

      • Nate Leung says:

        Right on Bill!

        That’s important and I believe that as Network Markers we hold the treasure. What good is it if we can’t share and let others enjoy it as well.

    Nate, great article on the haters out there. I always remind myself that it always comes down to how I react. It is their “stuff”. Just walk away and don’t engage.

    • Nate Leung says:

      Exactly! Never lower yourself to their level! Thanks Sigrid!

    • Nate Leung says:

      Well said Sigrid, be the better person, do not lower yourself to their level. Thanks for stopping by!

    Hey Nate, When dealing with haters it is important that you never let them intimidate you and kill your dream. The only way they win is if you give in to them. All you do by giving up and quitting is PROVE that the HATERS are right, which is something you should NEVER do. Enjoyed the article! Thanks!

    Hi, very good article. The worst is when it’s your close family. When they try everything as far as inviting theirs friends to discourage you. You got to ignore and maybe stop going to family gathering if it come to that.
