A couple of weeks ago, a super successful real estate broker, who’s also an Acupuncturist, called me to complain about an opportunity meeting he’d been to.
He had recently signed up with an NM company that markets little patches that simulate acupuncture, but without the needles. (Warning: I’m the business trainer for the company.)
Anyway, he reported that he’d gone to one of the meetings. There he saw lots of people with aches and pains, in wheelchairs, etc. who had come to get a pain fix with the product. They were doing a pain fix demo that night.
Fine, he said, that was great. But after that, they asked for folks who wanted to “make an explosion” and market the product. And no one raised their hand.
“What kind of stupid meeting is that?!” he asked me. “Nobody there who can help us recruit and build!”
I had to tell him the bad news. If people are invited to a “healing” meeting, who will come? Won’t they be the sick and ailing?
Why would he find any ‘warriors’ there (his word for recruiters)?
If you want sales hot shots, ASK for them to come to a meeting. Don’t ask for the sick and ailing.
What could be more simple than that?
Ask and you shall receive.
