Recruiting 101: “You’re One Recruit Away From An Explosion”

recruitmentlightbulb

I have been in the financial industry in a direct selling company for almost two decades. One of the things I come across when I am recruiting reps and doing the job skills testing to expand my business is that direct sales is often misunderstood. What I want is for people to understand what direct sales really is. Instead of traditional retail outlets or online marketplaces, direct selling maintains a sales force of millions of committed independent entrepreneurs.

These small business owners affiliate with a direct selling company and receive commissions on sales, but work for themselves. Independent direct sellers set their own hours and create their own marketing plans. They determine whether to build a sales team and how to go about mentoring them. Also, how to serve their customers – whether in their homes, online, or at parties with family and friends. This all depends upon the type of company it is. I am in the financial industry so doing an in home party or a meeting to recruit new associate’s wouldn’t be in my home or the home of friends – for obvious reasons.

Aside from the fact that you can start in a network marketing company on a part-time basis while you learn and work from home, you have the ability to make unlimited residual income. The way that you do that is to go out and recruit some awesome people and duplicate yourself over and over. To me, the most attractive part of the business was the ability to recruit and build a team of people I can teach to make a six figure income and run their own business. I would get to override this team and receive residual income forever. The concept is to build a team that becomes self-sufficient and goes on to run their own office, it is like opening multiple franchise outlets. The huge difference is that the average franchise requires a large sum of money to get started. Most direct sales companies require a minimal out-of-pocket expense to get started.

So why not work smarter not harder? One of the best ways to achieve multilevel marketing success is to share the products and business opportunity with other people.

Here are a few tips that will help you to get out there and recruit and build your team:

ETTM Think Tank: Helping Others Pursue Excellence (H.O.P.E.)

Helping Others Pursue Excellence (H.O.P.E.) is what Hope Wissel has done for the past 25 years.  As a Social Worker in the early years of the HIV/AIDS panademic, I helped many deal with their diagnosis and the changes that would take place in their life.  She became an advocate for clients’ rights and connected them with the services that would improve their quality of life.

Over the years, she’s made it her personal mission to inspire and nurture women particularly those with children.

When she joined Thirty One in 2011, it was purely for the discounts.  She had never done direct sales and was not really sure it was something she wanted to do.  Within 6 months, she was promoted with 2 people under her and more joining over the next several months.

Hope gave up her 4 hour round trip commute and decided to approach her Thirty One business in the same way she worked in the social services arena.  Whether it is connecting people to the resources that they need or solving organizational issues with Thirty One. Helping others to achieve their dreams is her daily goal.

Hope CELEBRATES- ENCOURAGE S – REWARDS hard working women with simple solutions to life’s challenges while helping them to reach their dreams – personally and financially.

She says, “My life has been a journey including: growing up in middle class family, parent’s divorce, drug addiction, bulimia, single mom, social worker, entrepreneur and now a wife. Many people have asked what is the worst thing then? I have to say the drug addiction, I wish that other people don’t have to go through what I’ve gone. But if you are deep in the addiction hole then please find help, you can find a center in missouri and they can help you with your addiction, I know people don’t like to go to rehab but this is the only way to fix this. Many people suffer from addiction. Click here to check your Premera rehab insurance benefits covers rehab treatment.”

Hope currently lives in Brick with her high school sweetheart, Rob.  After 26 years, we reconnected and are now happily married.  We have a daughter, Belinda and a son, Dennis.

A long standing member of our community and ETTM group assistant, we cannot wait for you to learn more about Hope and her business at our next meeting. RSVP HERE.

How do I choose the best networking group for me?

As everyone knows, I have been in my own business for over 16 years. So, I consider myself pretty well versed in networking having gone to many different types of networking groups over the years.

I don’t go to many outside my own, unless I think in some way it will benefit our group, ETTM.

So, the other night I went to a women’s networking dinner (which was fun) and here is what I shared with this group of ladies:

1) Big doesnt always mean better. Just because a group has many people that show up, that does not necissarily mean it is better. I’ve found smaller intimate groups can produce more referrals, which in turn produce business because of the ability to connect more closely with people.

2) Price is only an issue in the absence of value. The least or the most expensive group doesn’t make the group better or worst. I do believe, however, that you do not have to spend a lot on a group to ensure it is a successful one. I also don’t believe free groups can produce a good return because there is no funding to grow and give back to the organization either.

The best groups have intimate circles and offer education as well as networking which is why we implement that in our ETTM.

3) Get to know one another. Lock arms with someone you view as a strategic partner and always listen more than you talk. Give first and give more and it will always come back.

Joining multiple groups is also a successful networking no no. I know you’re probably asking, why? Would I do better if I was a part of multiple organizations? Well, the simple answer would actually be a question, how many referrals are you able to give?

You see, if you promise more than you deliver it will come back to haunt you.

Focus your efforts into 1 or 2 groups you feel the best about; this would be the one/s with the most people you not only can relate to, but that you can honestly send referrals to.

Give of yourself to the group, if you want to get the best return, be around the most, volunteer more, tell everyone about the group and invite people to help it thrive.

Remember in any group or relationship… together, everyone achieves more!
