What is more valuable - time or money?
Bluebonnets everywhere! And they just keep on producing all over the place once they've been planted!
Jim Rohn said "Time is more valuable than money. You can get more money, but you can't get more time."
It's the end of March and another super month of people joining our business to take back control of their lives!
It’s also the beginning of spring and the middle of the current Prime Recruiting Season.
When done correctly, the productivity you achieve over the next 90 days can cause your downline to be in full-blown momentum by the middle of summer. Then by next fall during the next Prime Recruiting Season, your downline could explode from all the extra seed planting you did in the spring.
Be sure that you have a good supply of consistent leads flowing through your pipeline. If you do not let me know and I will refer you to some excellent lead sources. Every month I buy two shares in our team Pay Per Click coop and we are signing people up every month from this coop using our team online marketing website system.
I caution those who are only using social media to depend on for building their business. This can be a deceiving business building method because it’s just that – ‘social’ – media.
How many people have signed up this month from social media methods? I’ll answer that question for myself - none. We have however signed up several distributors from our pay per click leads and have several others who are interested.
What social media can do for your business is take up a lot of your valuable time. Time that could be spent in calling and connecting with real people who are interested in starting a business with you. These are people who have actually requested that you call them and assist them in starting a business. Why not be spending time with these people? They are out there waiting for you to pick up the phone and call them!
A social media connection usually already has a business so really all you could be doing is spinning your wheels with them. Yes it’s great to make a connection and build a relationship because you never know when someone you meet from social media could be in the looking zone that's true too.
I've been making connections online for over thirteen years and have never depended on social media solely to build my business. In fact, it's a very small piece of the pie. A sliver actually because of the saturation of the Internet over the years especially in this area.
The point I’m making here is if someone is depending totally on social media to build their business they may be ‘deceived’ and could end up with a very slow building business in the long run. So why not spread your seeds out?
The better way to build your business is with people who are in the looking zone. That means hot/warm market or cold market. You choose. The business will not build by itself and it will not build with social media alone.
It's important to consistently be putting people in your pipeline and then follow through and follow up and duplicate the same process with your team! If all there is is a bunch of social media groopies all hanging out socializing, then who's building a real business and more importantly who's mentoring the team?
1) If people wanted to make more money before, they really want to now.
2) Tax Refund checks are giving people the extra funds to get started.
3) People are looking and getting started. Someone is going to sell or sponsor them why not you?
4) When approached "correctly", most people are nice, pleasant, and interested especially when they requested to be called in the first place. Make sense?
We encourage distributors if you want to get your business to grow then double, triple, or do everything you can to multiply/duplicate your efforts. This means taking Massive Action in picking up your phone and calling people who have asked you to call and help them right now!
