(If you missed a day, pick right up where you left off!) …
Creating Your List & Contact People You Know!- I want you to work on creating or updating your prospect list today. If you’ve been in the business for a while, it may be a good week to revisit people! It’s the New Year, so people have goals to live better, and you could be holding the solution to their resolution! See if their timing has changed–tell them what’s new and exciting in your company!
Go through your phone and Facebook contacts, or a Memory Jogger <= (click here for a great memory jogger)– is it possible there are people there that you haven’t reached out to yet? Call them: “I wanted to share some exciting news with you. I know you’ve built an incredible network in Chicago. I’m not sure if I mentioned this, but I am building my business there and I immediately thought of you because I know how well networked and respected you are there. I’m hoping I could share more about what we’re doing, and who we’re looking to partner with as we expand there, and see if this is a good fit for anyone you know in the area. I’d love to pick your brains and get ideas of how to expand my business there. Do you have just a few minutes so I could share more?” Or, offer to meet them, and treat them for coffee!
After you share more, share your story (how you found the company and why you love it—and what it’s going to do for you)—then share your leader’s success story, and invite them to hear more from them. Third party validation and social proof is powerful: “I’m new, and still learning. I’d love for you to hear from my business partner. She’ll be able to share more and answer your questions”. Invite them on a 3-way call or to coffee with your sponsor, or to the next meeting or event.
This is the exact approach that was used to recruit one of our company’s rock stars Stacey! My mom and I used to work for her. Stacey and her husband own several successful businesses in Chicago. We both thought of her several times and never called her. The chances are, if you think someone is great, someone else does too. Eventually someone will call them, and in this case, they did! Rose out of Chicago beat us to it! She used a referral-based approach, complimenting Stacey, building on her credibility saying something simple like: “Stacey. I know you’ve built several successful businesses in Chicago, and I know you’re well networked in the Chicagoland area. I respect you. I am building a business in Chicago too. I was wondering if I could treat you to coffee, share with you what I’m doing, and pick your brain on ideas of how to grow this. I’d also like to see if you know people who you think may be interested.”
Stacey met Rose for coffee, came with a list of hundreds of names she was ready to give Rose as referrals, and when she heard the opportunity she decided to come to a meeting to hear more for herself. I happened to be hosting the meeting that night, and in walked Stacey! My stomach hit the floor! She joined us! Stacey ended up being the top recruiter in the company that year! She earned her company car, and I have no doubt she will be a million dollar earner someday too.
Don’t pre-judge anyone. You don’t know what their hopes, dreams, desires, and their financial situations are. Usually the most well-connected, successful, busy people get it first, and they run with it! It’s just our job to share, and it’s their job to decide. Remember, if we share what we’re doing with everyone, they can all plug in: as a customer, consultant, or to help us in creating new connections! But they can only do that if they know what you’re doing and if you share your story with them!
Now get to it! Take a deep breath, pick up the phone, and call 2 NEW people on your list today (or 2 prospects you haven’t talked with in a long time!) It’s time to #RYNMB30 (Rock Your Network Marketing Business In 30 Days!)
