She said this to me while watching my fearless Wife approach total strangers at an outdoor Craft Show and Juneteenth Celebration Fair.
Of course, Lisa knows a thing or two about what to say to anyone concerning Her Business. Plus, she’s passionate about it.
#1. Here’s a good opener. “Hi, I’m in the area today to try and help as many people as possible. If I could show you a low-cost way to earn some extra money each week without changing what you’re presently doing would that be something you’d be interested in?”
If they say ‘yes’, then you exchange contact information and share a presentation video link (via Flyer or Handout) with them along with instructions to let her know when they’ve watched it.
The goal is to just hand out as many flyers today and try to get as many verbal promises as possible to watch your presentation Video. Rarely will you sign anyone up at this point.
Of course if they say ‘no’ just say ‘thank you’ move on.
#2. Next, usually in a day or two, if they let you know that they have watched the video just ask them what they thought about it. If they seem to like what they’ve seen, then say something like: “If you had unlimited free training along with weekly payouts and help, do you think this is something you’d like to do?” Wait for the ‘yes’! (Now enroll them)
But, if you haven’t heard anything from this contact in a couple of days you can call or text them and say: “Hey, I had a few moments and wanted to see if you’ve had a chance to watch our Video or if you have any questions about how we earn extra weekly income?”
If they didn’t watch it yet just repeat the instructions to let you know when they will be watching it and try setting a time after they watched it to follow up with a call or…
If they did watch it, then go into talking about it and what they thought about it. (Step #2)
If the person she’s talking to says they’re not interested then you should just be polite and thank them for their time and hang up.
Note: These are only Guidelines. None of this is etched in stone. Put your own spin on it. Make it fit your own personality and make it sound natural. In other words, make it something you’re comfortable with.
One other often overlooked item: Immediately, after they have signed up make a time and a place when they like to start their training. Don’t overlook this. This may be the most important thing you can do to insure your success.
Training can be in person or on Zoom Calls. If your Company has regular training give them that training schedule and invite them to the very next one.
People want and need help when they join an opportunity, and they want and like having a sense of Community! Once they hear other people that belong to this same business they feel much better about their decision and soon will realize that: ‘…if they can do this then so can I.”
Now I realize that some if this will seem like ‘old school’ networking. Especially since so many people rely on Social Media, Traffic Exchanges, Safe Lists, Texting, TikToc etc. (all of which we use btw…)
What we have learned in our almost Three Decades of doing this is quite interesting.
The people we sign up on social media don’t usually stay with your business. Statistically, a whopping 97% move on to the next ‘shiny object’ within a month or two! That’s too much work for nothing.
With rare exception most never enroll anyone into their down-line and only a few even attend training sessions. These are the people that still believe the ‘gurus’ that tell you that you’ll earn $100,000K by Friday if you just send them $49 today.
So called ‘Gurus’ are scum and are to be avoided.
There are some rare exceptions to these stats but, most people you find online aren’t the people you can count on to build your own business. Even though they signed up with you they are still of the opinion there’s one ‘get rich quick’ program, just around the corner.
Most of these folks will die broke while still looking.
We also waste a lot of time and money using these various online ‘biz building’ methods.
Promoting in person is a solid way for you to get ahead.
As I said before Lisa and I went to this outdoor Craft Fair this past weekend. Here’s what it cost us to promote our business there.
At home, we made and printed out a flyer with the sales pitch on it and Lisa’s contact information and video presentation link. On the way to the Fair, we stopped at the Library and printed off copies of this handout. (Cost $5.00)
Then we went to the Fair and Lisa started simply walking up to Vendors and Visitors and went into her short talk. The result was that most were receptive. Lisa now has almost 80 new contacts and, experience tells me She will have 2 or 3 new signups into her main business!
Bottom line is we spent $5.00, and it took about 4 hours. We had a great time, met a lot of very nice people and we will have made another positive impact on our business growth.
Since these people are local and since we’ve already met them, they now know us and will attend training, they will learn how to build their business from us and they will soon get into a positive weekly cash flow.
We’ll make money, they will start making money and we will have acquired more new friends.
And, unlike signing up people online, most of the people we do sign up from our 4 hours at the Fair will not quit the business.
The reason is because they are receiving personal help and feel like they are a part of a community that cares about them.
That’s called: Win-Win!
The reality is: When you sign up someone personally and immediately let them know you are there to help them and train them your Retention Rate Climbs!
As I said, most don’t quit unlike the online lookie loos. This way works! We have people that have worked with us for over a decade!
A high Retention Rate means you are creating a business that you can count on to provide you with a permanent, weekly, lifetime residual income for years and decades to come!
Goodbye Boss. Goodbye 9 to 5.
Now is when a few people will tell me this is the slow way to grow a business. Well, here are some numbers from a business we are affiliated with.
Signing up just 3 people then actually teaching those 3 to sign up three each and so on and so forth will eventually provide you an income of $3,306 monthly at level 7. This can be done in about 3 to 4 months if you commit to it.
At level 8 this becomes $9,867 per month residual income. Not too bad. Experience has shown us, to reach this level will take 10 to 12 months. Again, you must commit to the process and work on your business daily. See More?
See how simple this is. All you did was enroll 3 people that will do what you’ve done. Then you actually train them so they will then go out and do the same thing.
I know this post is longer than usual, but I wanted to show you how easy your business can be.
“Networking is just Numbers!” ~ D. G. Gaw
You just have to dig down into yourself and find out how bad do you want this? How badly do you need this income? How much longer will you settle for mediocrity? How much longer can you stomach going to that 9 to 5? How many more of your kid’s ball games will you miss? Or how many recitals?
As in anything in life…it’s your choice.
Get in touch anytime. All the best,
