Dream Big, Hit it Big

With lottery excitement hitting fever pitch across the nation, it’s a good reminder to always Dream Big with your business.

Remember the last time you bought a lottery ticket? It was more than likely just the other day. If you’re like most people, you probably tucked the ticket away in a safe place, then you started to daydream about what you’d do if you won! You thought about …

  • The moment you figured out you were the winner …
  • What you would buy first …
  • Who you would help …
  • The places you would go …
  • The fun you would have …
  • The financial security you would feel …
  • Who you would tell first …
  • How it would feel to accept the “Big Check” …
  • How exciting it felt to Dream Big!

Now take those same thoughts and think similarly with your business. When you share the opportunity with enthusiasm and potential, it can evoke in others the same thoughts and feelings as a lottery ticket!

Enthusiasm

When you share all that you love about the products and your excitement for what the opportunity means to you, others will get excited about:

• What they can buy with their new source of income
• Who they can help by offering the opportunity to others
• The places they will go (i.e. incentive trips)
• The fun they will have with their new found friends
• How financial security will feel when they achieve their goals
• Who they want to tell first about their new adventure
• How it will feel to earn the recognition they desire
• How exciting it is to dream big and to see the possibilities and potential in themselves!

Evoke emotion. Sharing the opportunity is like giving someone a lottery ticket. You’re giving them a chance to dream big and to feel good about their future. It also just might be the fuel they need to strive for bigger possibilities in their life.

Help others to Dream Big and you might just Hit It Big yourself with a thriving, growing team and network marketing business!

Ask and You Shall Receive

The saying is true … to get what you want, you have to ask for it. No one is going to just give it to you. Ask and you shall receive. In network marketing, that means sharing the products you represent and then “Asking” to take the next step …

Ask questions to build rapport

When meeting with one person or many, always ask the person or people you are meeting with to share something about themself. Ask questions, then listen to what people are sharing about what they like or don’t like, want and desire. Connect with the person or people you are sharing with to build rapport.

Ask for an opinion about the samples you shared

Always, always, always follow-up after sharing a product sample or doing a product demo. The biggest mistake marketers make in this business is to assume that if someone likes the sample shared, they’ll contact you. Don’t wait for a call, call or contact them after a few days to ask their opinion of the sample or product shared. You may just find on this call that they haven’t even had the chance to use the sample yet. They’ll appreciate the call to remind them to try it. After they’ve had a chance to try the sample, ask what they liked or didn’t like, then listen to learn what they are looking for to see if you can meet their needs or solve a problem with the products you represent.

Ask for the order

Surprisingly more often than not, we share the products and our experience using the products and we end the conversation there. The last step to close the sale is to “Ask” for the order. Ask which product or products could they see themselves using. Ask if they would be happy if a product shared could solve one of the problems they expressed bothered them. Share any specials being offered to help them get the best deal possible on the products they show interest in to close the sale.

Ask for referrals

Always, always, always ask for referrals. Ask if they can think of anyone else they know that would appreciate the products too. Offer to share samples for anyone they can think of. Ask if they would like to host an event for you with a few of their closest friends at a later date. Be sure to share the benefits to them for hosting for you (i.e. free products or discounts on the products they want).

Ask them to join your team

Always, always, always ask if they would be interested in joining your team! Express how excited you would be to work with them and to build a business together. Share the benefits you’ve experienced doing the business. Share with them “why” you do the business, not how you do it. “People don’t buy what you do … they buy Why you do it,” says motivational speaker and author Simon Sinek.

Bottomline, you’ll never know if someone is interested in your products, in buying from you, in helping you share the products, or joining your team unless you ask them. And if you never ask, the answer will always be “no.” So, just ask!
