Network Marketing Tips: How To Get More Customers

Network Marketing Tips…

Wouldn’t it be great to know how to get more customers?

Here is a question.  What if you could show and tell your prospective customers how to use your products and what you like about them?  What if there was a way to get your passion across in a duplicatable way – there is. I know videos are a great way to set you apart from the pack. They aren’t always easy to get done and lots of things get in the way but it is so true that the more you do, the easier it becomes. Create a video that shows your prospects how to use your products – whatever that might be – whether it is a health and nutritional product, or a body wrap or a legal service.

You could create a video that highlights the main products and explains when and where they would use it.  This short video is a quick example that I created for my company’s product line.  You get the idea.  It doesn’t have to go into all the ingredients and the features.  You will convert more prospects into customers because people feel like they know you. Like they have met you via the video.

Create a video to share how and when you use your  products.

How to get more customers …. it’s all about being personal

Just a quick overview with some of the things that you really like about product X.  Tell your story.  Telling a story will always make your videos more interesting and personal.  And it will be easier for you to create them!  And remember when you are creating a video – you are talking to ONE person.  Make it friendly and accessible.  Don’t think about the thousands that might see it.  Think about your neighbor across the street – the one you really like that is the perfect customer for your product or service.  And above all – don’t try to be perfect.  If you do, it may not ever get done.  Just start….  It is our quirks that make us interesting anyway.  All you have to be is YOU on camera. Make sure you smile more than usual and pump up the energy too.  The camera responds well to movement and passion in your voice.  I know I need to learn to relax more and smile more, too in front of the camera. All a work in progress!

Once you have this video, then you can start sharing it online.  You will have it to send out in emails when prospects inquire.  You can post it on Facebook and in Facebook groups.  You can write a blog about it.  You can publish it on Youtube.  Videos are so multi-purpose.  And they last.  You can use them over and over again.  And people love seeing and hearing you share what and why you love your products.  And I would expect that you would be one step closer to figuring out how to get more customers.

Network Marketing Tips: Creating a Video on How to Join Your MLM Business

Network Marketing Tips…

Network Marketing Tips: Using Video

Something you might want to do for your network marketing business is to create a short video on HOW to join your business.  I get asked all the time how do I get your products?  How do I join your business?  Now I can send this short video that makes it easy for them and gets them started. People want to know how to join your mlm business.  Here is a quick example of what this type of video could look like.  Don’t make it hard….Don’t overcomplicate it.  It is so easy to not get a simple video done.  Believe me, I know….  This is just an example.  You don’t have to get too technical.  You don’t have to explain all your programs and options.  Just help your customer or possible builder get started.

Video: How to Grow your Business

Network Marketing Tips:  Creating a video on how to join your MLM Business

It should be short and sweet, personable, an easy process and most of all, help lead them to a decision. We all want a lot of customers right?  Not everybody is a business builder and we so appreciate our customers too! A video like this will also attract the business builder because they will see that you are in business and that you mean business. You are taking the time to do something that most people don’t do. And in the world of social media and the internet – videos are definitely winning. The more videos you have out there, the more people will find you and the more you will dominate the space you are in. The power of video is it is almost like you are there in person with them. It is SO much more personal. It reassures people that you are real.

A lot of us have fears and blocks about the camera and creating videos.  Sometimes we get stuck as soon as the camera is on us.  I know I was like that and can still need to run around the block a couple of times after a video session.  I have gotten much better though than I used to be – it takes practice.  That old saying about practice makes perfect.  It’s true but we don’t need to be perfect.  We just need to be better.  I remember reading a book called “The Purple Cow”, by Seth Godin.  I read that book when I first got into the network marketing industry and the message was because of all the advertising we see on a daily basis, that you needed to be a purple cow to stand out and be seen.  Videos will set you apart from what a lot of people are doing to build their network marketing business.  This is just one example of a quick and easy one that everyone can do.  Another network marketing tip:  if it is easy and duplicatable, then your team will grow faster.

Is Your Business Off to a Great Start in 2014?

Happy New Year!

Is your network marketing business off to a great start in 2014?

Start your 90 blitz today.

It’s two plus weeks into the New Year.  I hope your holiday season was wonderful, warm and filled with love and family.  If you are like me, the last two weeks have felt good to get back to “normal” life, too.  And I bet you have lots of great goals for being successful in mlm and ideas for how this year is going to be different and better.  Me too!

I love the beginnings of a new year and for lots of reasons, I am especially looking forward to 2014!  I think it is because we have spent the last 18 months building the foundation for my new multi-level marketing business with Jeunesse and it is really starting to come together.  I am excited to see where we will be one year from now.

One thing I have noticed is that we have great plans and goals in January and we start the year with the best of intentions and typically by mid- February we are off the rails.  Sound familiar?  How can we make this year the best we have ever had? It has everything to do with our commitments and our obligation to follow through.  We show up for so many things but we don’t always show up for ourselves!

Get your network marketing business on the path to success

Here are a couple of things I am committing to in 2014.  

I have stepped up my commitments to my Jeunesse business and as an entrepreneur.  My team and I started a 90 day blitz for the first quarter of the year.  That means we are stretching and pushing to do more each day, each week and each month than we did last quarter!  We can do anything for 90 days!  This works and is necessary to be successful in network marketing. I am so excited about where we will be one year from now.

I have stepped up my commitments to my health.  I am going to eat more fruits and vegetables and less sugar.  (would someone help me throw out the leftover Christmas chocolates?)  I am going to exercise first thing in the morning because all too often it doesn’t happen later in the day.  And I am going to get myself to sleep by midnight.  The last 3 out of 4 nights I have succeeded.  (I am a night owl – I love to work in the middle of the night but I know it isn’t good for me.  Not sleeping when we should be is aging to our bodies…which is the opposite effect of what Jeunesse products are trying to achieve).

Why do we fall off the rails of our New Year Goals?

Help your network marketing business succeed!

Most of us have a very hard time with discipline and consistency.  We want to be our own boss and to be successful working for ourselves. I think most of us think discipline isn’t a nice word.  I had to rethink what I thought discipline meant and when I did, it changed everything.  Discipline and being consistent is key to success in everything.

Whether it is losing weight, creating a great relationship, building your networking business or investing – being disciplined and focused is what makes it all happen.  Every day we have the chance to start anew, to start over, to start again.  Give yourself a break on the days where you fall short and keep going.  Most of us fall off the rails because we give up.  One thing that works for me is to write down my goals for the year and the steps I am going to take to make those goals happen.  And then I print that page out and I revisit it each week.  That keeps me focused and on track.

When I am feeling out of sorts, I change my physical state.  We can change our emotions and our sense of well-being very quickly.  It is just a choice.  Getting up and moving around, going for a walk, lifting weights for 5 minutes will move you to a more positive and productive mindset very quickly.

Then you will be in a better frame of mind to tackle that phone call or to set up that appointment.  Every day do the important activities to move your business forward.

At the end of the day, feel great about what you did get done.  Our to do lists are a mile long (at least mine is) and we will never get it all done.  I had to train myself to appreciate and feel good about what I got done and not focus on what I didn’t get done!  It makes a huge difference, especially if you are in the habit of falling asleep at night fretting about what you didn’t get done.  Guess what you will dream about?    It is so much more rewarding to feel good at the end of each day!

 2013 Recap

Every year, I “close” the ending of a year. I love to go through the past year and savor what happened before I really dive into the New Year.  At the beginning of each year, I also always choose one word or a phrase that will sum up the new year.  In 2013 it was appreciate and laughter.  This year the phrase for the year is PULL OUT ALL THE STOPS.  I am really going for it this year.

I heard this quote the other day:  Be grateful for where you are and where you are no longer.  I encourage you to be thankful for what you have accomplished.  2013 was a big year for me.  Here are some highlights.

  1. Mark and I celebrated our first year of marriage.

  2. I celebrated my one year anniversary with my new company – Jeunesse.

  3. I created the foundation in my new business for a great and long term success.  I feel honored to get to work with the leaders on our team – blessed to have them in my life.

  4. My team and I created a duplicatable system for our team to run with.

  5. I created a new brand, new websites and revamped social media sites

  6. We celebrated Christmas for the first time with our 3 kids.

  7. I participated in several life changing mastermind events.

  8. I hired marketing mentors to help me achieve my dreams.  Everyone needs coaching.

  9. I presented at our Jeunesse Las Vegas Convention in front of thousands of people – so much fun and feels like home!

  10. I traveled to Maui, Las Vegas, Napa, Mendocino, Orlando, New York City, Bangkok, Vancouver Island and Vancouver.  Plans are already in the works for Palm Springs, Vancouver, Seattle, and Italy.

 Make your network marketing business a success in 2014!

I am thrilled with the results of 2013 and believe me, when I say that I believe 2014 will be the best year yet.  When we focus on what we want and pull out all the stops, it is amazing what we can accomplish.  You can change your life.  We all can.  We all can create more than we can imagine.  There has never been a better time to be in the networking business.  And the internet and social media make it 1000 times easier to build a global business than even 5 years ago.  What are you waiting for?  No one else is going to take care of your retirement or send those kids to college.  We are the ones we have been waiting for.  Let’s go get it done!  I wish you a fabulous 2014!

Mindset for Business – Look, Listen, and Speak Your Way to Success

Mindset for Business

Mindset for Business…

The other week, my top leaders and I did a series of calls with our team, and what kept coming up was the importance of having the right mindset for business success. The biggest thing that holds people back from the results they desire is a limiting mindset. Consider improving your mindset for business TOP priority, because the actions you take (or don’t take) always stem from your thoughts.

Here are a few pointers for developing an empowering mindset for business, and how to look, listen, and speak your way to success:

Mindset for Business Success
LOOK for What You Want

Mindset for Business

Have you heard of the book, E Squared, by Pam Grout? One of the book’s exercises is about looking for something very specific and seeing how it shows up over and over again. For example, butterflies. At first I wondered what the chances would be that I would happen across a butterfly throughout my day (especially since I work from home). Guess what happened:

I pulled an inspiration card (part of my daily success routine) and the picture on it was a butterfly! Astounded, I shuffled through the deck and counted eight butterflies in the cards. For the first time, I noticed my hand lotion – that I use every day – had a butterfly on the label. On my walk, I saw a giant wooden butterfly on the side of a neighbor’s house. Something caught my eye and, when I looked up, I saw a sweet little butterfly at the top of a tall tree. At the movies that night, about twenty butterflies flew across the screen during a pre-flick advertisement.

What does this have to do with your mindset for business? Everything! What you look for, you find. So what are you focusing on? Negative people with every objection in the world? Or successful people who are attracted to your products and your business? Make a decision now to intentionally look for what you want.

Mindset for Business Success
LISTEN for Clues

Mindset for Business

Part of having an empowering mindset for business is listening to your intuition. Call it Spirit, the Universe, or God – whatever speaks to your spiritual connection – the divine has a way of whispering messages to you. The question is are you listening?

I learned this the hard way a few years ago. I had been receiving messages not to go through with a particular investment – I had a strange feeling in my gut whenever I thought about it, and a couple people even warned me this was not a person to invest with. I went through with the investment anyway, though, and ended up losing a lot of money. Now, I listen to those divine nudges!

When developing your mindset for business, pay attention to the subtle messages the Universe sends you. If an old friend’s name pops in your head out of the blue, perhaps you might give her a call. If you hear a book title repeated numerous times throughout the week, that book might just have the exact lesson in mindset for business you need.

Mindset for Business Success
SPEAK Your Intentions

Mindset for Business

Cultivating a success mindset for business means understanding that you create your experience when you speak your intentions. Create a habit of setting an intention each morning for what you want to happen during the day. Solidify your mindset for business intentions by asking for people to show up who are enthusiastic about your product and company. Expect to receive what you ask for, and be grateful in advance.

The spoken word is a potent creative force, and affirmations are a powerful form of intention. Here are some of my favorite affirmations (feel free to borrow them)!

  • “I’m able to ask for what I want”
  • “I get value from everything I do”
  • “Every day I wake up to new wealth”
  • “Money comes to me in unexpected ways for the good of all concerned”

Is Your Mindset for Business Geared Toward Success?

Here’s the good and bad news: YOU are the only one holding you back. What are you doing each day to develop your mindset for business success?

Train Your MLM Downline – Do’s and Don’ts for a Successful Network Marketing Business

Train Your MLM Downline

Train Your MLM Downline…

You already know this is essential to grow your business, yet if you’re like most people, you stumble from time to time when it comes to getting that superstar team off the ground. Here are some useful DO’s and DON’Ts to create momentum in your team and train your MLM downline.

Train Your MLM Downline

{Click to watch a full video presentation!}

Train Your MLM Downline DO’s

Train Your MLM Downline DO #1

DO follow the leader and be coachable. In order to train your MLM Downline, you need to be a coachable downline yourself. Listen to the leaders in your business, watch what they are doing, and follow in their footsteps. If you call your active upline for council, do more listening and allow them to do more of the talking. This may sound obvious, yet people often get in their own way by not listening. Your leaders are here for your success, so take advantage of that resource, and follow the path of success that has been carved before you.

Train Your MLM Downline DO #2

DO always keep sponsoring. A trap that many people fall into is they get a few people going and then get stuck in “management mode.” Rather than try to train your MLM downline to sponsor, model this for them by sponsoring people yourself. The most successful leaders are ALWAYS bringing new people in. In my first year with my current company, I sponsored almost 80 people. I am always actively talking with new people, meeting with prospects, and looking for people that want to build this business with us. New people are the lifeblood of this business. Keep on sponsoring!

Train Your MLM Downline

Train Your MLM Downline DO #3

DO remember your role is to be a resource. In order to train your MLM downline effectively, remember your role, as their sponsor, is to help them get started right. Your job is to help people know what they need to know to get their own business going successfully. After all, if you train your MLM downline to be dependent on you for everything, you are not going to create the duplication and freedom you want. Get comfortable with this sentence: “My job is to help you become independent of me as quickly as possible. Do you agree that’s a good goal?”

Train Your MLM Downline DON’Ts

Train Your MLM Downline DON’T #1

DON’T abandon people. It’s a mistake that many people in our industry make – You invest so much time and energy helping someone decide they want to join your business or try your products and then, as soon as they are on board, you leave them alone to figure it all out. Don’t just jump to the next person you want to sponsor – sit down with your new distributor and help them get started right.

Train Your MLM Downline DON’T #2

DON’T work with the wrong people. You did a great job to train your MLM downline and now you have a team that is running with it. Now what? A common tendency at this point is to think, “Okay, they’ve got it handled,” and then to give your energy to the people who seem to need it more. The problem is, the people who seem to need it more, may likely be those who are not in action. Spending your time with people who are not engaged creates struggle. If you want to create momentum in your business, work with the people who are working it.

Train Your MLM Downline

Train Your MLM Downline DON’T #3

DON’T promise the world. If you want to set someone up for success, set reasonable expectations. Don’t say things like, “You’re going to make SO much money SO fast.” Don’t tell people this is going to be easy. The truth is, the network marketing model is one of the highest leveraged business models out there, and you can absolutely build your fortune here. But it does take work. It takes stick-with-it-ness. There are ups and downs, good times and bad, just like any business. Train your MLM downline to be in it for the long haul by representing this business as the real career opportunity it is.

Keep these DO’s and DON’Ts in mind as you build your team, and be sure to share them with your rising leaders!

Jumpstart Your Business – How to Create Momentum in your Network Marketing Business

Jumpstart Your Business

Jumpstart your business this fall.

With summer fading and the autumn energy creeping in, you may be realizing it is time to jumpstart your business again.

It’s not always easy to get back into high gear…

In fact, my family and I just got back from our annual beach vacation in Santa Cruz, and I had a few moments myself where I wondered, “Where do I start?” I decided to just choose two things to get done. This kicked in the momentum again and, for better or worse, it didn’t take too long for the sound of the waves to become a distant memory!

Jumpstart Your Business

Every type of business has cycles and seasons, and our industry is no exception. As a rule, summer is not the biggest growth period in network marketing. Rules can be broken though – my company experienced their second best month EVER in August, and my own business grew substantially this summer.

If your business didn’t grow this summer, don’t beat yourself up. What you did in the summer was plant seeds, and those seeds will bear fruit in September and October. In fact, fall through Thanksgiving is the most productive season in our business, so you definitely still have time to make the rest of the year very successful. NOW is the time to make it happen.

Here are some ways to jumpstart your business starting today:

Jumpstart Your Business by SETTING GOALS

Manage-Feeling-OverwhelmedSet goals for you and your team as to what you will accomplish in the next 90 days. How many new business builders will you have? How many teams will you be working with by December? How many people will be on autoship by the end of the year? What rank advancement will you be celebrating on New Year’s Eve?

Jumpstart Your Business with OUTREACH

Over the coming months, focus on prospecting, networking, meeting new people, and calling the people you know. Commit to connecting with five to ten people every day, and just watch… You will get what you want!  Make sure you have at least two voice-to-voice connections every day – that will make all the difference.

Jumpstart Your Business LOCALLY

In today’s age of the Internet, more opportunities for connecting with prospects are available to us than ever before. Yet, don’t kid yourself that the Internet is the only playground you are going to play in – you are leaving too much on the table if you do that. It doesn’t work for me how some Internet marketers paint a bad picture about in-person marketing. The truth is, it all works, but you will want to focus locally to get a team in your backyard going.

You can have a lucrative business all over the country and the world. Just remember – your LOCAL community is the best place to start.

Jumpstart Your Business with ROUND ROBINS

A great way to jumpstart your business locally is by playing a game of Round Robin. Start a string of meetings – first at your house, then the next person’s, then the next. Moving from family room to family room will jumpstart your business and put your town on the map. Make your hometown the area that has the meeting going on every night. If you are the only person in your area, consider it a blessing and go for it! Become the top-ranking leader your town deserves.

Jumpstart Your Business with ONLINE SUPPORT

Social media and the Internet are there to complement what you are building in person with one-to-one meetings and home parties. Stay in touch with your local friends on Facebook to keep those relationships going. If you love LinkedIn, reach out to new connections in your area.

For my team, I’m creating a hybrid system, combining the best of the online and face-to-face worlds. Our online hub, JFactorTeam.com has our team calendar, a list of upcoming opportunity webinars, training videos, and more.

So, are you ready to jumpstart your business?

Take serious advantage of the next 90 days. What you do for the rest of the year will absolutely jumpstart your January too!

To more money, more freedom, a better life,

Having Fun in Business (Hint: It Makes You More Successful)

Having Fun in Business

Having fun in business is a hot topic today, and it is easy to see why.

We are connected all the time, to everything. Text messages, smart phones, iPads, laptops, social media newsfeeds, urgent emails, kindles, video games (my 83 year old Mom brought her iPad to a party last night to show her family slideshow) – all demanding our attention – on top of the actual work we need to accomplish!

Compared to what our grandparents experienced, the amount of information being fed to us at any given moment is nothing short of sensory overload. Since we can’t take a time machine back to simpler times, it is up to us to find ways for having fun in business.

Having Fun in Business

Having fun in business… Who has time for that?!?!

I want you to really hear this, especially if you tend to be driven and hardworking: Having fun in business and life is not optional. It’s critically important.

Many folks can fall into the trap of thinking they will take time for fun, leisure, and pampering once they achieve the wealth. Not so, my friend. You need to generate the experiences you want NOW, so you can integrate that feeling of success into your cells. What do you think comes first: happiness or success? We think that success will create happiness, but it is actually the other way around. Being happy creates more success in all areas of our lives.
Besides, who would want to join your team if you are constantly stressed and burned out? A big part of why you and I chose a career in network marketing is because of the lifestyle we get to create, right?

I couldn’t go back to working for someone else now. The perks for owning your own business are fantastic. This morning I worked out at 10am, sat in my garden working till 2pm – you get the idea!

If you want to attract your dream team, people need to see you having fun in business and experiencing life in abundant ways. And if you are having fun in business – it will show up in your personality! Has it been awhile since you laughed so hard that your stomach hurt? Or since you had a tickling contest with your kids?

Here are some tips for having fun in business, and how it can actually accelerate your success:

#1 Tip for Having Fun in Business: Put Yourself in Good Feeling Places

Here’s a great daily practice for you that is guaranteed to make you feel abundant: At the top of a piece of paper, write, “I’m so happy that…” Now list ALL the things you are happy about. My list looks like,

I’m so happy that…

  • My first year of marriage was wonderful
  • My Mom is doing great
  • I get to live where most people vacation

Another variation is answering, “Why am I so wealthy?” Your mind will come up with all sorts of proof, and you will begin to embody the most successful version of yourself.

Why am I so wealthy?

  • Because I’m dedicated and focused
  • Because amazing people are naturally attracted to me
  • Because I’m having fun in business

Having Fun in Business

#2 Tip for Having Fun in Business: Create a Ripple Effect for Giggles

You can’t always control what happens in your life, but you can control how you respond. The other day my husband was starting to make me a little bonkers and, as I felt myself getting annoyed, I stopped and asked myself: “Do I want to create a ripple effect of tension? Or do I want to create a ripple effect of giggling?”

As tempting as it is to be right, let’s be real… giggling is much more fun. So instead of getting testy with my man, I teasingly nudged him in the ribs, and we ended up having a great afternoon! Your assignment for having fun in business? Look for opportunities to create giggles.

At least more smiles! Don’t take everything so seriously! Smile when you pick up the phone. Diffuse tensions with a joke or something light-hearted. Be silly sometimes!

#3 Tip for Having Fun in Business: Do Something FUN

Of course building your business takes work, and you need to put the time in. Yet, understand that it never ALL gets done. So, rather than letting your “To Do” list run your life, why not wake up every morning and ask, “What do I WANT to do today? What do I GET to today?” You may be out of practice and may need to create a “Fun To Do” list. Part of having fun in business is making sure to do things from time to time simply for the sake of enjoyment.

Having Fun in Business

Even if you just pick one Fun To Do item per day, you will notice a huge difference. I love doing something every day that is fun, outside, and for me! Things like:

  • Take a walk along the beach
  • Pick flowers and create bouquets for our house from our garden
  • Bake cookies with the kids

#4 Tip for Having Fun in Business: Whistle While You Work

Having fun in business means making work fun! I noticed our kids drag their feet when it comes time to do dishes but, if we put some music on, dish duty becomes an opportunity to talk and laugh as a family. The kids might still need some convincing!

Having fun in business isn’t about blowing off your work; it’s about making conscious decisions to add the energy of FUN to whatever you are doing. Sometimes, I listen to music while I work. Sometimes I work in my garden or the local coffee shop.

My team and I just started a 10 day blitz and we text each other at 3pm to share what we accomplished in the blitz day. It creates some friendly competition and revs up the energy. We’re having fun in business together!

#5 Tip for Having Fun in Business: Dream!

Having Fun in Business

I am a big fan of dream boards. Standing in front of your dream boards with your morning cup of coffee is a great use of your time, and starts your day off with a sense of fun, peace, and success.

Here is one of my dream boards that I created about 6 years ago. This is an amazing story – When Mark and I were choosing my engagement ring, we found the one we loved on the first day out. Later, I took a look at the ring I had placed on my dream board SIX years ago and gasped out loud – the ring we had chosen was the EXACT same ring I had on my dream board.

Dream boards are a fantastic way to help you get very specific about what you would like to create in your life! Get a group of friends together and have a dream board party. Better yet, let’s have a dream board party on Pinterest right now!

To join my Network Marketers’ Dream Board, leave your Pinterest URL in the comments below and I’ll add you. Let’s support each other on our commitment to having fun in business!

Daily Success Routine for Network Marketers

Daily Success Routine

Daily Success Routine… do you have one?

If you look at the daily habits of successful people, including top earners in network marketing, you will discover we all have one thing in common – we have a disciplined daily success routine.

Small Daily Improvements

Why is it important to have a Daily Success Routine?

Whenever people ask me how I made millions in network marketing, I share this quote from Keith Cunningham: “Ordinary things consistently done create extraordinary results.” There is no magic bullet in this business. It’s the specific actions you take consistently that build upon each other and, over time, your team grows and your paychecks multiply!

Did you know a penny doubled every day for 31 days becomes over $10 million dollars? It’s true. Do the math, or check it out HERE. Here’s the catch: Double that penny every OTHER day instead, and you will end up with a mere $300 bucks.

If you wonder how some people achieve the top ranks in their company so quickly, it is because they are disciplined to take action consistently, with a daily success routine. Being inconsistent doesn’t work in any business, and certainly not in network marketing.

Here is Your 10-Step Daily Success Routine for Network Marketing:

1. Review Your Goals

Your daily success routine begins with reviewing your goals every morning before you get swept up by the day. As you review your goals, act as if you have already achieved them. Look at your dream board and feeeeel what it is like to have that life. Post your rank goals somewhere you will be sure to see them throughout the day.

2. Say Affirmations

When it comes to breaking through to a new level of success, we are our own worst enemies. What you say to yourself every day really matters. The YouTube kid sensation Jessica, has a daily success routine we can all learn from. Who cares if it seems silly… building a positive mindset is critical to your success.

3. Read Empowering Books

Having empowered thoughts and actions comes from feeding yourself empowering content. Instead of watching violent TV (including what is often called “news”), relax with a book that develops, motivates, and inspires you. I created a specific space in my house where I keep uplifting books that move me…

4. Call 5-10 New Prospects

Set up a daily success routine where you reach out to new prospects at a scheduled time. Scheduling this outreach in your calendar means you are more likely to do it, which is important since contacting prospects is a key income-generating activity!

5. Follow Up with Prospects

Following up with prospects is just as important to your daily success routine as reaching out to new ones. If following up makes you nervous, pat yourself on the back. As Dr. John Maxwell says, “If we’re growing, we’re always going to be out of our comfort zone.”

6. Get 10-20 NO’s

Why set a goal to get NO’s? Well, because not everyone is going to say YES and, if you are getting NO’s it means you are out there talking to people. Let go of the attachment of needing YES’s, and sharing your opportunity becomes easier. (And, psssst… it’s hard to get all those NO’s without a few YES’s slipping in!)

7. Help Your New Distributors Get Started

Are you being the sponsor you would want to have? Properly training the people in your downline is how you duplicate your efforts. Support your team by helping them create and stick with their own daily success routine! 

8. Promote Events

What live events and webinars are the leaders in your business putting on this week? Be sure to promote those to your team and prospects. Social media updates, emails, and phone call reminders are all great ways to spread the word. 

9. Host an Event

Here’s a little mantra for your daily success routine: “The host earns the most!” Host a party at your house or at a coffee shop, share your opportunity via webinar, or ask your upline to jump on a three-way call with you and a hot prospect. A host has more skin in the game than a guest, so make sure you’re playing! 

10. Plug into Your System

Your system includes a set of tools, resources, and repeatable methods for sharing your opportunity and products. If everyone did their own thing, the results would be haphazard. Duplication is key and the wheel is already invented, so get your team on the bus and roll with it.

Now that you have your daily success routine planned out, what’s next?

First of all, congratulate yourself. Celebrate the small successes, like sticking with your daily success routine, and reward yourself with bigger treats (like dinner out or a weekend getaway) when you achieve the goals you have set.

Warm Market Prospecting Tips – Network Marketing with Friends and Family

Warm Market Prospecting Tips

Warm market prospecting tips – Do you need a little boost when it comes to inviting your friends and family to join your network marketing opportunity?

The beauty of a warm market is that you already have an established relationship with your friends and family so, in theory, this is an easier group to approach. Of course, the fact that you know each other so well presents its own set of challenges, and the warm market prospecting tips in this article will help you through these.

 

Put these warm market prospecting tips into practice, and you will be set to build your dream team, complete with some BFFs and relatives, and plenty of space for new friends to come.

Warm Market Prospecting Tips

Warm Market Prospecting Tips:
RESPECT YOUR RELATIONSHIP

When your friends and family members join you in your network marketing business, it is a wonderful opportunity to spend more time with people you love, travel together, and achieve your dreams side-by-side. One of my best friends of 20 years, Jill, became a leader in my team and we had a blast traveling to places like Thailand and Hong Kong, building our business and making great money together.

One of the biggest warm market prospecting tips I can give you is to respect your relationship with the people in your life. This isn’t about strong-arming, guilt-tripping, begging, or otherwise “convincing” people to be in business with you.

What you don’t want is to make future holiday dinners awkward. You don’t want your friends to think the only time they hear from you is when you want something from them. You don’t want to hold grudges or resentment when your loved ones decide it’s not for them.

Warm Market Prospecting Tips

It really comes down to you supporting them in getting what they want in life. Most people need what you have more than they realize. The key? Simply find out if they are open. Rather than launch into a speech about your opportunity, just ask, “Are you open to hearing about a way to make some extra money working a side project with me that doesn’t interfere with what you are doing right now?”

Warm Market Prospecting Tips:
MASTER THE ART OF POSTURING

Want more scripts? You got it. Before you say anything, though, you want to posture yourself for success. “Posturing” is how you position yourself in relation to your opportunity and the person you are sharing it with. All the warm market prospecting tips in the world will fall flat if you come across as desperate or needy. Posturing is generating confidence within yourself. Yes, generating – it’s not something that happens TO you – YOU create your confidence.

Here are some warm market prospecting tips with posturing:

Posture #1 for Warm Market Prospecting Tips: With Or Without You

Posturing is making sure they understand YOU are doing this with or without them. Find your own words to get the message across.

“This is something I’m really excited about. I’m going to do it, and I would love to do it WITH you!”

Posture #2 for Warm Market Prospecting Tips: Let ’em off the Hook

Rather than defend your opportunity when you get pushback, simply take the pressure off. That shift in energy can give your friend space to reflect and reconsider on her own.

“I get this may not be for you, at least not right now. I’ll let you know how it goes!”

Posture #3 for Warm Market Prospecting Tips: The Big Never Mind

If your friend or relative says they are open at first, and then they come up with a bunch of excuses and objections, gently remind them you are here to build a business, not convince people.

“You know, it doesn’t seem like you really ARE open after all. I’m looking for people who actually are.”

Warm Market Prospecting Tips:
BE COMMITTED, NOT ATTACHED

No matter what words you use, the bottom line of warm market prospecting tips is your attitude underneath it all. I know, you really want your friends and family to see what you see. You want them to have the life they always dreamed about, and you are committed to this. Excellent. Be committed, just don’t be attached.

When I first got started in my network marketing career, my mom grilled me with questions for a couple of hours! Looking back, I wish I could have recorded our conversation because it would have made a great CD on warm market prospecting tips and handling objections.

Sometimes your close friends and family want to watch how you do first, before deciding to take action themselves. Sometimes they need to warm up to the idea, and they come around later.

Other times, it doesn’t matter what warm market prospecting tips you follow – the answer is simply no. Over the years, even though I have made millions of dollars in this industry, I still have lots of family members that really are not interested. Not a problem. We still have a great time at family dinners, and I still have a great career!

How to Add Value in Business – The Secret to Winning in Network Marketing

How to Add Value in Business

How to Add Value in Business…

The bottom line is, the more you add value, the more money you make. Yet what does it mean to add value? How do you do it, and why is it so important?

To understand how to add value in business, let’s first look at what’s NOT working:

I’m going to be blunt here… If you’re not adding value, you are adding noise. Unfortunately, despite the best intentions, far too many network marketers out there are off-putting, without intending to be. You’ve seen it. The guy at the networking meeting who gabs for 30 minutes about why his comp plan is the best. That lady on Facebook whose newsfeed looks like a flashing billboard.

Maybe you’ve even done this yourself. It’s okay though, because once you understand how to add value in business, you are going to be more effective in your communication, make more money, and enjoy your business more!

So let’s break it down…

Secret #1 for How to Add Value in Business: BE OF SERVICE

If you want to know how to add value in business, first ask yourself why you are in business. Do you love how your products make a difference in people’s lives? Do you feel passionate about supporting people in achieving their financial goals and lifestyle dreams?

If you see people as dollar signs, they’ll pick up on that, and their “baloney meter” will go through the roof. But if you truly care, that will make all the difference. If you want to know how to add value in business, simply shift your focus from ‘what’s in it for me’ to ‘how can I serve you?’

One great way to do this is to become a connector. When you go to networking meetings, ask people who their ideal client is, and think of whom you can connect them with. Not only will they be more likely to return the favor and send referrals your way, when you focus on how to add value in business, you expand your abundance mindset and become a magnet for success.

Social Media Bonus for How to Add Value in Business:

Don’t promote your business like a broken record. For every TEN posts, you earn the right to post ONE (maybe two) that promotes your business or sells your product.

Secret #2 for How to Add Value in Business: LISTEN!

One of the simplest ways for how to add value in business is to offer an ear. Most people are busy trying to figure out what to say to get the other person interested in what they have to offer. Here’s the secret… Lean in and ask questions. The person sitting across from you will tell you exactly how you can help them.

The guy who jabbers on about his comp plan is wasting his breath if the person he’s speaking with only cares about the product. You must listen to understand what matters to the person you’re sharing your opportunity or product with.

And, be genuine! Are you connecting with people in a meaningful way? Do you care about what they have to say and what their needs are? Or, are you doing most of the talking just to get them to help you?

Social Media Bonus for How to Add Value in Business:

Whether you are in a coffee shop or on Facebook, if the conversation is one-sided people will tune out and shut down. Reading your newsfeed is how you “listen” in social media. Tune into others first, and then comment on posts in a way that establishes a connection. It is ALL about how we make someone feel. Do they feel like you care and are genuinely interested in them?

How to Add Value in Business

Secret #3 for How to Add Value in Business: SOLVE PROBLEMS

Perhaps the best barometer for whether you’re mastering how to add value in business is how many times you hear these two words: “Thank You.”

If people’s lives are improved because of you, THAT is how to add value in business. At the end of the day, how many people feel like you helped them? How many times did you hear “thank you” today?

In the network marketing industry we help people in so many ways. Some of the best products in the world are sold through network marketing channels. Our industry has made more millionaires than any other. Rather than worrying about how fast you can jump to the next rank, remember the problems you are solving and focus on what you are offering that really matters to people.

Social Media Bonus for How to Add Value in Business:

Before you post, ask yourself, “Why might they care?,” and phrase your status update in a way that solves someone’s problem. For example, rather than making people read between the lines with “Our Jeunesse PM Essentials contain powerful vitamins, nutrients, extracts, and antioxidants,” start the conversation with, “Do you need help sleeping?” Keep in mind the problem you are solving and how you are providing a solution.
