“A penny will hide the biggest star in the universe if you hold it close enough to your eye.”

Cash is bad.

Cash is bad … for using as a premium or incentive.

If you give a cash bonus, a cash prize or a cash incentive, here is what happens:

The recipient spends it!

The recipient will spend the cash on groceries, a credit card bill, or this month’s mortgage – and your cash is quickly forgotten.

Instead of offering cash, offer something with long-term memory value.

For example, give a trip. The memories of a trip will last a lifetime – and the memories are always associated with you.

Give them a children’s book. Every time their child reads the book, they’ll think of you.

Give a memorable evening out complete with a limo, a nice meal, and a show.

Give a banquet in their honor.

Give a watch, a special pendant, clothing, a plaque, or anything that has longer-lasting memory power than cash.

You’ll want the maximum leverage from your premium or incentive.

The guilt approach.

Many prospects are afraid to try a new product or investigate an opportunity. They kindly tell us, “No. I’m busy. I’m not interested.”

You can use a simple guilt approach to motivate the prospect to at least look at what you have to offer. Here is an example.

A company sold water filters. Their distributors were trained to simply loan a water filter to a prospect for one week. At the end of the week the distributor would pick up the water filter or take an order for a new water filter.

Only one problem. Prospects wouldn’t let the distributors leave a trial water filter.

The company devised a simple guilt offer.

The distributor now said the following to the prospect:

“Just try this water filter for one week. This gives you a chance to win a free trip to Hawaii. Every week the company draws the name of a trial user and gives away a free Hawaiian vacation. But not only does the trial user get a free vacation, but the distributor that loaned out the trial water filter wins one, too! So why not try this filter for one week? Do it for me. I’d like a chance to win that vacation and go with you to Hawaii.”

The prospect is motivated by the guilt of not letting the distributor have a chance at winning a free vacation.

What do leaders do?

Network Marketing Tips: What do leaders do?

This makes no sense.

We come into network marketing, and then told to be a leader. Now, we don’t know how to be a leader, or even what leaders do.

It gets worse. In order to be super successful, we must build leaders on a team. But how do we do that? What do we tell others to do? What activities? What words to say? What skills to learn first?

No wonder networkers find their business frustrating. “Wanting” something is a lot different than “knowing” how to do it.

Knowing how to do it? What is the first step? Learning exactly what to do, of course.

If we believe leaders are important to your business, then we must learn these skills quickly.

Learn exactly what to say and do to become … and build leaders now.

Inviting people to your business presentations.

Imagine this is the relative effectiveness of inviting people:

  • 50% Endorsement. (If someone endorses the meeting, half of the people invited will come.)
  • 10% Referral. (Looks like an endorsement is five times more effective than a simple referral.)
  • 3% Two-step. (Get someone to answer an ad, and then send them more stuff and invite them.)
  • 1% Cold call. (Gee, you would have to make 50 cold calls to equal one endorsement.)
  • 0.5% A simple email inviting a person to your meeting.

These are relative numbers, but you get the idea.

Instead of running ads, etc. – make personal contact with one, two, or three people. Build a relationship and invite them. That will be more effective than hundreds of emails.
