Tonality

Geodynamics | Presentation skills – 1. Voice

Here’s the thing about tonality

This is the big problem, most people, they’re looking for a script. But if you use the wrong tonality in a network marketing recruiting script, it doesn’t work.

You can study network marketing recruiting materials all day long but if you don’t understand HOW to say things, your results won’t be great.

Ever practice what to say
to a prospect but it just didn’t
go well?
People that are good at sales are
naturally good at one thing that most
people don’t understand

It isn’t what you say, it’s HOW you 
say it, how you inflect your voice
at the right time.

Today, you are going to get to watch
a video that no one else in our space is
teaching.
IF you are serious about getting more results in your network marketing recruiting, be sure to watch the below video where he shares:
  1. How to sound when calling leads
  2. How to sound when you want to get someone to join or buy
  3. EXACTLY what I say to people after they have watched a presentation and more importantly HOW I sound

Stop Complaining and Change!

How many times have you seen an, “Ugh, I hate Mondays” post on social media?

I-Hate-Mondays-Simpsons-Picture

Those who are completely happy have put themselves in that position because anything other than happiness just isn’t acceptable. They made sacrifices and worked hard until they reached the level of happiness they were striving for.

It all comes down to identifying what it is that you want, formulating a plan to get there and then working hard until you reach your desired goal. It has nothing to do with luck.

If you are unhappy, you currently have two options: You can complain about it and hope it magically changes, or you can set out to make a change. For the latter, here is a simple four-step plan to help you achieve happiness. If you are unhappy you owe it to yourself to make a change — life is too short to delay any longer.

1. Determine why you are unhappy.

There are several reasons why you could be unhappy — you could be working a job that you don’t truly love, working with people you don’t enjoy being around or doing something you are over-qualified for.

It might not be work related at all — you might be in a dead end or unhealthy relationship. There could be a million different reasons, and it’s up to you to identify them. Whatever they are, just know that you aren’t going to find true happiness until you first single out what the problem is.

2. Change your attitude.

The first thing I mentioned above was the “FML” and “Ugh, I hate Mondays” social media status updates we all see on a regular basis — that type of attitude sets the tone. If you are constantly filling your head with a negative outlook, what do you expect will happen?

Negative thoughts breed negativity and unhappiness, while positive thoughts breed positivity and happiness.

When it comes down to it we are all responsible for our own happiness. The only way you will be happy is by changing your attitude and understanding that you are in full control, and fully capable of changing your situation.

3. Create a plan to reach happiness.

When you know why you are unhappy and are armed with a positive attitude, you can start to devise a plan to achieve happiness. This is where many people hit a mental roadblock and self-doubt enters their minds.

“I’m not going to find a better job.”
“I wont find someone else.”
“I’m too old to start a business.”

Excuses are made to justify remaining miserable. If you are serious about truly being happy you need to push all self-doubt out of your mind and commit to developing a plan to become happy. Determine what your ultimate end goal is and reverse engineer the steps you will need to take to reach it.

4. Take action and don’t look back.

With your plan outlined it’s time to move forward and never look back. Simply taking action doesn’t guarantee results — your journey to happiness could include mistakes, rejection and disappointment. But if you don’t take action there is only one guarantee, and that is your situation will never improve and you will remain unhappy.

Happiness isn’t going to happen overnight — you have to continue to push forward, regardless of how difficult it may appear.

The Sizzle Sells the Steak

 

imagesThe Sizzle Sells the Steak

If you’ve ever been camping, you’ve noticed that when you separate
logs on a campfire the fire goes out.  Push them back together and
the fire blazes up.  So with ONE log, you have nothing.

If you have two logs, you’ll have a flame, with three you have a fire,
with four you have a BLAZE!

When having a meeting, be sure that there are at least three people
there, and when the fourth person arrives, your meeting is really
blazing!  We call these sessions “sizzle sessions.”  Your MLM program
is the steak, and it’s the SIZZLE that sells the steak.

This is a good place to bring someone who isn’t quite as
hot as you’d like them to be, they’ll catch on fire!

If you’re at a public place like a restaurant, watch for people who
might be listening in on the conversation.  When the Sizzle Session
is over, hang around a bit and see if anyone approaches you.  They
might not approach while there’s a crowd, but they will after the
others leave.

Start the Sizzle Session by having people tell about something good
that has happened in their business.

When you are finished, part with something like this:  “Just think,
this is as hard as we will ever work!”  Those who have joined your
meeting that are involved in a regular JOB will be motivated to hurry
up and get to that same position.

These lessons have been adapted from “The 45 Second Presentation,”

I don’t have TIME!

Randall Bramblett - "I Just Don't Have The Time" [Lyric Video ...

Have you heard that before from some team members or prospects?

Everyone has the time if they are serious about getting ahead and building a business.

In other words, find that 1/2 hour – hour or two each day to build a incredible business not only for you, but your family.  It is so worth it!  You can’t rely on Corporate America for retirement anymore.  The way things are today, having a back up plan is a MUST. And a good, solid company to build up over time is an incredible choice for your nest egg and your future.

Activity Time Spent Time Remaining in the week
Sleep
8 hours a day
56 hours a week 112 hours remaining.
Full time job:
8 hours a day
40 hours a week 72 hours remaining.
Commuting:
2 hours a day
10 hours a week 62 hours remaining.
Eating:
2 hours a day
14 hours a week 48 hours remaining.
Family & Entertainment:
2 hours a day
14 hours a week 34 hours remaining.
Miscellaneous:
2 hours a day
14 hours a week 20 hours remaining!

Many business owners are just going to hide behind the excuse that they don’t have the time. They’ll wait until someday they magically clear their calendar, get past the current situations they are dealing with, and then they’ll do the things that will make their business grow.

Sadly their someday never comes…

Instead, you’ve got to make the decision that your someday is now! And that your starting point is today!

What is your WHY?

Is it more money to get that new car, to send your kids to college, to take that special vacation? Whatever it is, keep that WHY in front of you and make the decision to stop being stuck and do something to make your life better and have fun doing it! In other words, our Mia Bella business is a FUN business! Who doesn’t like beautiful scents? Most people do!

Above all, when you do this, and back it up with simple, focused action to incrementally change the way you are building your business, the results will amaze you. You got this!

Network Marketing Success!

Network Marketing Success - EdZimbardi.com

You probably have an image firmly planted in your mind of what network marketing (also known as direct sales or multilevel marketing) is all about–housewives buying and selling Tupperware while gossiping and eating finger sandwiches, or a high-pressure salesperson trying to convince you how easily you can become a millionaire if only you and your friends and their friends and so on would buy and sell vitamins with him.

Both of these images couldn’t be further from the reality of network marketing. It’s neither a hobby nor a get-rich-scheme but an opportunity for you to earn money running your own part- or full-time business.

But what does it take to succeed in this industry?

Vincent J. Kellsey, director of member services for the Direct Selling Women’s Alliance, an organization that provides a variety of resources to women and men in the direct-selling industry, offers these tips for making it:

Tips….

Choose wisely. There are six key elements you should be looking for when selecting an opportunity. Number one: stability. How old is the company? Number two is excellent products or services that consumers will use and need more of.

Number three is the pay plan–how even and fair and generous overall is the distribution? This is really crucial as the pay plan represents exactly how you’ll get paid–or not get paid. There are really only two questions to ask regarding this: How many pennies out of each sales dollar get paid back to the distributors each month, and how fair is the distribution of these pennies between the old members and the new members?

Number four is the integrity of the company and the management. As much as possible, investigate the experience of the CEO, their experience in the network marketing industry, and their background. Have they been successful in other companies in the industry? Do they have a good reputation?

Number five is momentum and timing. Look at where the company’s at, what’s going on with the company, and if it’s growing.

Number six is support, training and business systems. You may have chosen a great company with excellent management, products that make a difference, a pay plan that’s uniquely fair and very generous, and momentum and stability, but if you don’t have a system in place that works, all of that doesn’t matter. Most companies will have a transferable training system that they use, and that’s where mentorship comes in.

Practice what your upline teaches

To succeed, you need to be willing to listen and learn from mentors. The way this industry is structured, it’s in the best interests of the network marketing veterans in your company to help you succeed, so they’re willing to teach you the system. Whatever your mentor did to become successful, it’s very duplicatible, but you have to be willing to listen and be taught and follow those systems.

The higher-ups. It can be called various things, but the general term is the “upline,” meaning the people above you. How supportive are they? Do they help you put a plan in place? Do they followup and stay in touch with you? Are they as committed to your success as they are to their own? You should be able to relate to the people in your upline and be able to call them at any time to say “I need some help.” How much support there is from the people above you in the company is very important.

Take up the lead with your downline

There’s a term in the network marketing industry called “orphans”–when somebody is brought in and then the person who brought them in is just so busy bringing in other people that they don’t spend the time to teach and train [the new person]. You should be prepared to spend at least 30 days helping a new person come into the industry–training them, supporting them and holding their hand until they feel confident to be able to go off on their own. You really need to ask yourself, are you willing to do that? Are you able to do that? This is really about long-term relationship building. It’s not about just bringing people into the business and just moving forward. It’s about working with these people and helping them to develop relationships.

On the net

People are utilizing the internet as their main marketing tool. You can set up your site with autoresponders so when you capture leads, the autoresponder can follow up with that person. One of the greatest keys to success in this industry is follow-up. Many people will have someone call them who’s interested or they’ll call the person and say they’re interested, but then they don’t follow up with it. Automation on the internet has allowed a much more consistent method of following up.

The only drawback with the internet is people who utilize it to spam. If there was one thing I could put forward to say, “Do not do” when utilizing the internet as a marketing tool, it’s spamming because that can give a very bad reputation not only to you but also to the company you’re working with.

Taking care of business

This is a business, and just like if you were running a franchise or a storefront, you should have an accountant. You have all the same write-offs tax-wise that you have with running a full-time business, so it’s very important to do your research prior to getting involved, before you start making money from it. How is that going to affect you tax-wise? What are your write-offs?

Don’t quit your day job…yet. Never leave your full-time position unless you’re absolutely certain that the income that’s coming in with this company is going to be there. Be sure that you’ve been with the company for awhile and that you know it’s a stable company, and the income that you’re earning is equal to or greater than the income you’re earning from your job before quitting.

Success!

Recruiting through Social Media

Have you ever tried sponsoring new people in your organization through social media?

When recruiting through social media, such as Facebook, your fans like to see real content.

Post content with personality & content that’s interesting. Also content with useful resources or tips and content that’s unique.

This is why you want to create your own unique images. Don’t just re-use the company’s branded content. I know Facebook will rank images that are used by lots of people lower than unique content. Use unique images! Your own images!

And when you have plenty of interesting and unique content on your business page, you’re ranked well by Facebook. When that happens, Facebook is more likely to show your followers any branded content when you do share a company video or image.

If you want to actually get results from social media in your network marketing business, then start raising more curiosity that does not allow them to do their own independent research.

I finished watching an incredible training with Network Marketing trainer, Ray Hidgon.  I learn so much every time I listen in to his trainings! Take a look at his blog. Wonderful information on building a big business.

Do you ever wonder the best way to get results by recruiting through Social Media? Check out his social media blog posts for some incredible information. Ray Higdon Blog
