Do you position yourself as someone who can
help someone else attain some kind of financial ‘freedom’?
Then you need to know bottom line, how the money gets made
in our business. Think? Hehehe.
Um, it’s not talking to people about the business or the product.
It’s not becoming passionate about what you’re doing. It’s not
self-development. It’s not sharing the business or opportunity
with everyone you meet. When you do those things, does anyone
pay you for doing them?
Here are the two things you must do to make money in
1. Bring in orders to your company. Customer orders,
Rep orders. Orders orders orders. Orders that are of course
coded or linked to you.
2. Be qualified – personally order the required amount or have
the group volume required – during any month where you have
orders in your business for which you want to get paid.
Everything one does – all the trainings and seminars in recruiting,
customer gathering, attitude development, meeting more people,
learning about the product or service, self development – ALL of
these activities are there to help a person who needs them bring in
an order to their company. But no one pays you to do them.
MLMers and NMers do not make money for:
1) talking to people
2) showing the business or the product
3) sharing the opportunity
4) learning to recruit
5) sharing the product or service…
6) being passionate
7) learning to present or be persuasive
You can do these things all day, but without an order, do they pay you?
Nor does your company pay you for any of the other preparatory
activities – learning to talk to people, then finding some to talk to
without turning them off, learning how to market on Facebook or
other social media, going door to door – etc. etc.
The two requirements to make dime one in our business:
1. Bring orders into your company (usually online through the
websites, however yours does that) – because THEY pay you a
piece of the money you bring into their door.
2. Be ‘qualified’ (through whatever purchases you are required to make)
so that you get paid for the orders you bring in that month.
Then you need to know the basic percents they pay you. Those
are pretty easy to discover – usually 4-5% of all your GV. No need to get
tangled up in the underwear of the company pay plan. (And of course
pay for customer orders.)
Once you know how the money gets made, you’ll sound more
credible to others if you want position yourself as someone who can
help someone else attain any kind of financial ‘freedom.’
Everything else helps a person accomplish these two things –
but those activities alone do not bring in a penny.
If you ask a real estate person what has to happen for them to
make income, do you hear, “Oh, I share homes?”
Or securities brokers – do they say, “I make money talking to people
2013 might be a good year for us in the field to stop being in
denial that we are a sales business. Guess who else is in sales?
Apple. Google. The Church. We pay them them money because
we want something they offer, yes?
Aren’t we the same?
What say you?
