Recruiting vs Sponsoring – Post 009

Here is a little note from one of my marketing sponsors that I wanted to share with you all.

Recruiting vs Sponsoring

Every time I take a step back and really think about Network Marketing and what the potential is I often wonder if we are making Network Marketing too hard? After working from home on a full time basis now for well over 10 years you would think I would know the secret to success. Well I have good news for you I believe I do know the secret to success and yes we are making Network Marketing too hard. I am going to break this down into 3 steps: Recruiting vs Sponsoring, the secret formula for success, and give it time.

Recruiting vs Sponsoring: I think that not understanding the difference between Recruiting and Sponsoring is one of the biggest problems in the industry. Let’s start by giving a brief explanation:

  • Recruiting is simply the act of bringing someone into your business.
  • Sponsoring on the other hand goes several steps farther. It includes the sign up process and then the mentoring, training, and supporting necessary to help your new distributor attain their goals. This is a long term commitment to your new business partner.

When I look back at my biggest success over the last 10 years, building an organization of over 75,000 active distributors in 24 months, I only sponsored 3 front line distributors and I put all of my focus in helping those 3 people reach their goals. The interesting thing was within 24 months all three of them were making a multiple six figure residual income and they were not relying on me much at all. They had their own business and things were great. That is an example of what can happen if you understand the difference between Recruiting and Sponsoring.

Now let me tell you the mistake I made next. After selling that business I started over.

What was I thinking?

I turned the American dream into the American nightmare. This time I thought I was going to take my business to the next level. I put together a huge advertising budget, set up several e-mail servers, and even a 100 line auto dialing system. I turned this machine on and started generating 100’s of fresh leads a day and turned that into 30-50 new distributors a month. I thought that I had finally figured out the secret to success, boy was I wrong.

I continued on this path for almost 5 years sponsoring 30-50 distributors per month, month in and month out working harder than ever before trying to take my business to the next level. After five years my group had well over 100,000 sign ups. The bad news is only around 10,000 were active and only one person out of the 1000’s that I personally recruited was making a six figure residual income.

What was wrong with this picture?

I worked what seemed to be twice as hard for 3 years longer made less than half the money and had less than 1/5 of the active distributors.

The reason I am writing this report is to help make sure you do not make the same mistake I did while trying to take your business to the next level. My new plan this year is to sponsor 5 people and mentor, train, and support them so they can attain their goals.

Why five?

Well really no particular reason that was just the number that I felt I could work with on a daily basis to give them the support they will need to get their new business up and running.

I do want to point out one interesting thing though. The greatest thing about Network Marketing in my opinion is leverage. Leverage is really what this business is all about.

Let me explain how this works, Network Marketing in a perfect world is a lot of people doing a little work. This short exercise will show you the power of a lot of people doing a little bit and how that can turn into massive leverage.

Let’s say you sponsor just 2, 3, 4, or 5 people and duplicate this effort 4 times.

# Everybody Sponsored =

2 3 4 5

Level 1

2 3 4

5

Level 2

4 9 16 25

Level 3

8 27 64

125

Level 4 16 81 256

625

Total # Sponsored 30 120 340

780

This is a simple exercise to point out how big of a difference one person can make. Even though when you look at these numbers they are hundreds apart the real difference between each group is only one. Once you understand this I think it will make a lot more sense why you want to become a great sponsor and not a great recruiter.

6 Ways To Boost Your Website Sales – Post 006

The very first thing to do when launching your website is to make sure to understand and apply a few basic rules that, in my opinion, are MUST DOs for any profitable website. Enjoy!

  1. Choose the right domain name for your website. Websites with a good domain name are easier to remember and trust. The right domain name should have the .COM extension, should be short (one or two keywords), English language, and somehow related to the product you sell.
  2. Focus on the content, easy navigation and logical flow instead of making your website cute. Don’t include pop-up messages. Increasing demand for pop-up blockers suggests that you will annoy a lot of visitors if you have this feature.
  3. Design your website around a theme. Clearly state what you are about on the top of the page. Don’t confuse readers with links all over the copy. Provide information on the website that helps visitors solve their problems. Build a case for your business that leads reader to conclude that you are the only business for them; irrespective of the cost.
  4. Give visitors some reasons to come back to your website – like free newsletters, monthly specials, etc. Keep the content fresh and add/delete pages regularly. This will keep your information up-to-date and help you get better search engine ranking.
  5. Identify keywords that are important for your business, and use them in your copy. It may make sense to have one page per keyword. Include keyword in the title tag, as well as in the page description tag. Use them in plurals also, when it makes sense. You can check Google, Bing or other search engines for keyword options at no cost.
  6. Search engines do not index images, thus any text presented as image will not help you with your web presence.

Old School Network Marketing STILL Trumps All – Post 003

Old School Network Marketing STILL Trumps All

Todd Falcone just posted a brand new training video on his blog about why “old school” networking is the fastest way to collect a check. Let’s face it there’s a lot of hoopla on the internet, a lot of empty promises, and a lot of people that seem to think our business is not a PEOPLE business. (they couldn’t be more wrong!) Real human connection is what moves you forward in this profession and you can’t hide behind your computer and create that, so check out his latest video on this topic below…
