Welcome to DAY 6 of 29 Days of the Young Living Business Series. Each day in February, I'll post a business tip to help you get started sharing these amazing products and growing your business.
DAY 6: MAKE A LIST
One of the MOST IMPORTANT steps to building this business is sharing. Without sharing the products with others, you will have no business. If you’re not sharing with AT LEAST 2 NEW PEOPLE every day, you will not grow. You may be thinking to yourself, “I don’t know anyone” or “I don’t know ENOUGH people”. Network Marketing is not about who you know, but who THEY know. Meaning, you have a friend, you introduce that friend to the oils, then THEY SHARE with the people THEY know. And so on. YOU don’t need to know a lot of people to succeed in this business. Many of the diamonds, crown diamonds, and royal crown diamonds have come from very small towns!
With that being said, the first thing you need to do is MAKE A LIST. This list consists of all the people you know. DON’T WORRY about if you think they will like the product/business or not—that is not for you to decide. Let them decided whether or not the product is for them. All you have to do is share it with them.
Please view this ULTIMATE MEMORY JOGGER or this Memory Jogger. Use either of these memory joggers to make a list of EVERYONE you know. Again, leave the judgements out the window about whether or not they would like Young Living. Just write their name down. HOMEWORK: when you’ve completed this task, comment below with how many names you have on your list.
If you’ve been working Young Living for awhile NOW IS THE TIME TO REVISIT YOUR LIST.
I’m pulling these TIPS from Sarah Robbins. Her book ROCK YOUR NETWORK MARKETING BUSINESS, gives GREAT tips and word-for-word examples on how to share your products with others. (Read her book):
‘Revisit your customers- “How are you loving your products? I’m not sure if I ever shared, but as a distributor of the products I get a great discount. I would love to get you on a program where you can get wholesale pricing too, and possibly earn your products for free or make a little money by sharing them with others. Do you have a few minutes where I can share more about how?” (share your business, and distributor discounts and benefits)
Revisit past prospects or former business builders—”I know the timing wasn’t right before, but if ever there’s a time to take another peek at the company, the time is now. Going into fall, business is booming so now is the time to get trained and begin to assemble your team—plus new products and promotions are coming out. The time is now. I wanted to revisit and see if the time is right to take another look. I would hate for you to miss out.” (share what’s new and exciting)
Go through your phone and Facebook contacts– is it possible there’s people there that you haven’t reached out to yet? Call them: “I wanted to share some exciting news with you. I started a new business (tell them more about your product or service and your story in how you found it and why you’re excited about it). My business is building in your area, and I wanted to share it with you–and see if I could pick your brain and get ideas of how to build there, and who you know might be interested. Could I treat you to coffee (or virtual coffee with a coffee gift card) and tell you more?”
Lifestyle Networking– Compliment/ Connect– Pass out Samples and Follow Up– Look for ways to engage in conversation. Give someone a compliment. Ask a lot of questions. (“Great service. Do you love your job?” or ”Cute kids. Where do they go to school?” etc) Then leave them with a sample. “I’ve loved chatting with you today. I would love to leave you with this gift (tell them more about the sample, and what it does.) I promise you’ll love it. If you promise you’ll try it, I promise I’ll follow up!” Get their name, number, and tell them what time you’ll call, and write it on the card you leave with them. When you follow up: “How’d you love the product? Before I tell you more about it, I would love to tell you why I’m excited about my business!”
Classes/ Virtual Classes– Reach out to your friends and ask them to host an event for you: “My business is building in your area. I’d love to meet new people. Would you be willing to host an event for me? You invite the people, I’ll do all the work, and throw in some free product as a thank you!”
Social Media– WE ARE PAID STORY TELLERS. Mix up your personal and inspirational posts with a little bit of business every few days: lifestyle posts, congratulations and welcoming to new new distributors, or shout outs to people who made an achievement to edify that person, encourage your team, and engage and interest your FB audience. Share product tips and testimonials, along with before and afters.
If you find people aren’t interested–“No problem, I’d love to get you on our products and get great results. And do you know anyone who would be interested in my products or business? If so, I’d love to reward you for your referrals and give you product for free as a thank you!”
Hope these tips help you build your list, big time–and rock your network marketing business!’
