Do you know Why Autoship is Important in Network Marketing?
When I started in the network marketing industry, the idea of autoship was very new to me, and at first a bit intimidating. People can be nervous about a monthly commitment. Once I learned more about the industry, it became very clear to me that in order to build a successful business you need autoship. I am going to share with you what I have learned over the years and why autoship is important in network marketing.
Do you love the product?
Do you love the product you are trying to sell to others? You should be actively using your product! If you aren’t, that may be a good sign that you should evaluate the company you chose to go with. If you love the product and actively use it, investing on average $100 towards it a month should be a no brainer. One reason why autoship is important in network marketing is it keeps YOU actively using your product. You have to become a consumer of your products. Your own testimonials will be worth their weight in gold for you. When you use your products, you are also investing in your business. You are leading by example and showing the people you work with the importance of autoship.
You can think of autoship as overhead. It is part of the cost of doing business. Not only is using your product setting an example, it is also providing cash flow to your business. Without autoship and lots of happy customers ordering every month, you will constantly have to hustle to reach the numbers needed to keep your business going. When you can count on a constant amount of money coming in, you can focus on the expansion of your business instead of playing catch-up. Autoship is the financial backbone to your business. A mentor told me years ago that we should think of autoship as sacred territory. Without selling volumes of product, there can be no substantial cash flow. Autoship keeps product sales steady as you build your team and business. This is where the residual income comes in too. Most importantly, your team will do what you do. If you aren’t on autoship and don’t teach others to be on autoship, you won’t get that boulder up the hill.
So how do you deal with people who are resistant?
If the people you are working with don’t understand why autoship is important in network marketing here are a few things you should consider. Are you making a big enough deal about it? When you sponsor someone, you should make it really clear that they should be on autoship. And explain to them it isn’t for you but for them because their team will do whatever they do. By talking about this from the get go, you are building a standard from the ground up. In the beginning of a new distributor’s business is when you want to be teaching about how important autoship is.
If the people you are working with are resistant to spending around $100 a month to invest in their own future, you may want to consider the level of commitment they have to the business. They can be customers and order when they want and we all want lots of those too. However, the business builders should have enough customers to cover their autoship costs. Be sure you are focusing your time and energy on committed team members! Don’t sell yourself short.
