Has the 3 Foot Rule ever worked for you? Does it Work at all?
Guess what, when we first started out in network marketing, there is this “Strategy” for want of a better word that our Upline told us to use. Strangely, some leaders in the online marketing industry still teach it to their down-lines. It is very common in the offline Network Marketing circles.
And it’s called the “3 Foot Rule”.
No, we aren’t talking about a foot ruler or any mathematical instruments and none were harmed in the making of this episode!
So, what is this 3 foot rule?
Basically, it implies that ANYONE within 3 feet of you anywhere is literally a prospect and you should attempt to expose/market your Network Marketing opportunity to them.
Does it work?
Some will say yes, esp. those teaching it!
And…what do we at Kalungi Group think? Well,..
In my view, the 3 foot rule works in the same way that spam works, i.e. spray and pray and don’t mind whom you hit with your spray!
Yet, the proponents of this “nano strategy” believe that:
“the more people you can expose your business to, the more new people you can recruit into the business.“
That is solid business thinking if you ask me…And thats about all the sense there is in this style of marketing. Because…
Unfortunately, like spam, it’s likely to annoy far more people than it’s bound to generate interest. It’s like cold calling only it’s ‘cold live conversations.’
You go to a shopping mall (Market place for some) and literally start approaching strangers and simply start to introduce your business or product…No idea if they are looking for that or whatever… Eiiik!
Or you are out and about minding your business and this strange man or woman stops you and strikes up a conversation about their product or service.
Where we grew up, street hawkers walk around town all day, trying to sell their wares in a “mobile shop” kinda thing. They are on average ignored, looked down upon and they in turn can be aggressive and loud.
Unless someone see’s something they wanted on their “mobile shop,” Or their price seems crazy cheap. Plus, they are exhausted by the end of the day, AND can barely meet their basic life and financial needs!
Don’t get me wrong this kind of thing works by numbers and sheer grit. Yet its HARD WORK and we at Kalungi Group prefer SMART WORK. Talking of which next week we shall talk about Goal setting for the new year that should get you going good 😉
You must have a stomach for rejection and strong as Samson!
Question is: Can you do it with Network Marketing?
My answer: It’s your choice. But I prefer a small thing called LEVERAGE and I would rather be a Laser Targeted Marketer!
Also I assume you intend to do network marketing Long term? Do you see yourself make any waves in your income by approaching strangers daily with no strategy at all?
If you said YES to the above Question, You must have a stomach for rejection and strong as Samson!
I suggest that you…

Aside from whats been shared in the Podcast above, ask yourself: is the 3 Foot Rule the best use of my time?
It may be best used when used wisely – with people who might already be interested in your Network Marketing opportunity.
For example, if you are attending a home-based business event or Meetup, the 3 Foot Rule may be more productive.
But you’ll waste a lot of time just like the street hawkers in Kampala by just using the 3 Foot Rule with each and everyone you come in contact with, everywhere. Because MARKETING TO EVERYONE IS MARKETING TO NO ONE.Marketing to everyone is Marketing to No One.
It means you have no clue WHO your target market and audience are and so most of the time, you’ll just end up being what one of my coaches calls “the 3 Foot Fool“.
So I cannot say 100% that it does’t work, after all even a spray hits the target every so often. Just like the hawkers in my motherland city do! All I know, is this kind of strategy will lead to 2-3 things: Frustration , Lack of results and Maybe even Quitting.
Over to you now.
