How I Use Automated Sales Funnels to Build Network Marketing Teams

open meetings

I have been involved in network marketing for a number of years now. I built a large team in the Amway business back in the early 1990’s. I was in the group under Dexter Yager, Don Wilson and Randy Haugen, clearly three of the most successful network marketers ever. Eventually this team broke apart and I left the business and applied what I had learned to conventional businesses.

A few years ago I started looking for another network marketing opportunity but I knew there had to be a better way to build them. The old school ways of making cold contacts and meeting people in restaurants and coffee shops just doesn’t work as well today. People are way too busy. They are very leery of meeting with a stranger and who really has the time for no shows anymore.

What’s worse is then you are taught that you need to teach others on your team how to cold contact people and let’s be honest that’s usually where most people quit sharing the products and the business opportunity. If the business is built on duplication but no one wants to duplicate the old methods what do you do? I knew I did not want to do that again. Sure those person to person methods work but there are far fewer people willing to actually do that. In the old days we called those people leaders.

Face2Face+Networking

Here is what we used to do.

  1. Cold contact people in person or on the phone
  2. Ask if they are interested in other ways of making money
  3. Show them the “plan”
  4. Follow up with them
  5. Answer questions and sign them up
  6. If they don’t sign up right away continue to chase them until they disappear or get involved to shut you up and then do nothing in the business.

Kind of kidding about that last step but not really. Sure it can work but then if they do get in they say to themselves eventually; “do I have to do what my sponsor did to get me in”? You say “of course, and I will teach you” and there gone.

Most people have a fear of speaking in front of groups of people they don’t know. They fear it more than death according to some surveys. And to build this business after the friends and family have joined or laughed; or some of both they quit.

I could not see doing that again. Trying to convince people they can do it is exhausting and not fun for any of us. There had to be a better way! After searching and reviewing how the fastest growing network marketing companies were doing things. They all had a few things in common.

landing page

  • Personalized Websites and landing pages(example above) for each distributor- These are used to introduce people to the products and the business.
  • Lead generating techniques- You have your cold contact leads coming to you not the other way around. They get your information and can tour the products, business and compensation plan
  • Automated email responder systems- The company emails all leads for you with pre-written emails message providing information and encouragement. This does the follow up for you.
  • Automated sales funnels with a “fear of loss” approach
  • Have a pre enrollment function-This allows people to be placed on your team in a temporary spot with people being placed under them right away. This shows them that the business is being built and gives them something to lose if they don’t upgrade and lock in their spot.
  • Cellphone apps that can be used to build your business-access to videos for promotion and training, back office details and even business enrollment functions
  • Ability to build and online, offline or both
  • Are a binary structure- Amway and others were using a 6-4-2 model that was not easily sustainable for most people who build this type of business part time. How could you build 6 legs?

Some of the benefits are clear. Can you imagine having a business where your leads find you and want to learn what you are doing and how they can join?

This is the perfect way for introverts (like me), and time strapped busy people to still build an additional income in their spare time. I literally spend 1 hour per day and have been able to build a sizeable business. So can you!

After searching around I found companies that had all or some of these things and many still had none! Many companies are still having their people use the old methods and are run by people who are corporate business men not network marketers  who really understand how to build a large organization of business owners and entrepreneurs.

That’s exactly what I have been doing. I equate this building approach to online dating in this article HERE. I teach people how to get their business opportunity found by 1000’s of interested people looking for a way to start their own business. I can teach you too!

How I Use Online Dating Methods To Build Network Marketing Teams

onlinedating

If you have previously been involved in a network marketing company during the 1990’s or even later you may have been introduced to the business and its products by way of a face to face meeting. It was probably a 1 on 1, or a home meeting or possibly an open opportunity meeting at a hotel. That is how I came to be aware of the Amway business opportunity back in 1989.

I call that the “old school” method for building the business and in my opinion, it can really limit your business growth and velocity. 1 on 1’s are still the best way to explain the business to your friends and family to be sure. But is it the best way to share with your warm market or cold markets?

In my opinion it is not, and I will tell you why. Today we use all kinds of online and virtual methods of staying in contact and communicating with people we have not met in person. Think social media, right? Today we are using the internet to do just about everything and why not? Today we can even meet our future significant other online before meeting in person. It’s called online dating.

WHAT IS THE ONLINE DATING METHOD?

When I joined the Amway business in 1989 there was no internet really and certainly no one was doing online dating. Yikes it all seemed ridiculous when it finally got rolling. Who would actually use an online dating service? That is not for me. I still recall when my first friend used it and found a great person who eventually he did marry. They are still happily together today. Why did he use this method? Well he was too busy with work. He did not want to go to bars and clubs. He wanted to find someone who was already “screened” for compatibility to some degree. In actuality it all made sense, and it really does work. Why not apply that method to network marketing?

In Network Marketing or MLM as it is referred to sometimes what are we really doing? We are looking for compatible business partners. Just like with dating the two people can checked each other out before deciding to work together.

I use online tools to allow people who are looking for a business opportunity to find me, just like in online dating. It’s all very simple and very cool. They can take a free tour of my business. Check out the compensation plan, products and back office to determine if it is compatible with their goals and desired focus.

I can also establish their level of interest, commitment, experience and skills to determine if we can work together and if I have the time to invest in helping them get started and reach their goals. This is just like determining compatibility in the online dating process. Why shouldn’t you be able to reach out to others and have them be able to reach out to you, when we are looking for each other?

The fact is this process flat out works! I am looking for people interested in a business opportunity. There are many people looking for an opportunity. I just use online methods to connect the two groups and I teach others how to do the same thing.

time savings

TIME SAVINGS

One of the best things about network marketing is that it can produce time duplication. Meaning it removes the attachment of time and money from the equation. You no longer have to be income limited by the number of hours you can work. That’s what happens on the job, right? No one can personally work 24 hours a day, and that’s all we get each day.

It always seemed strange to me that we should limit ourselves to the constraints of time to limit how many people we can reach with our business opportunities each day. After all we want to duplicate our time not limit it. I can reach hundreds of people each day and generate 20-40 leads each day. There are few if any people who can do that using the “old school” methods of building network marketing.

Very few companies have supported the new methods and fewer yet even are aware of it. Today I can decide to reach out and generate leads in any state in the USA I want to focus on; or all of them if I want. This can also be done by reaching out into other countries of choice.

There are literally millions of people that I can connect together when they are each looking for each other.

SATURATION?

Some people who really understand this process I use and teach think that I can reach every person on earth and it will be “saturated” within a short period of time. Meaning everyone who wants to be involved; will be involved. I only wish that was possible. In reality it is not possible. Every day 1000’s of people who turn 18 years of age and are now eligible to start and own their own business. So, there is always a growing group of people who have never heard of what we do. Additionally, it is frequently about the right timing. Not everyone is open to a business opportunity at the same time. That openness changes over time depending on individual circumstances.

I hope this all gets you thinking out of the “old school” box just a little bit. Today network marketing businesses need to change and if the company doesn’t then you may need to consider adapting your methods fit today’s needs and learn to be the most effective you can be.

So if you think we might be a “match” then let’s discuss how we may be able to work together. Contact me. I can’t promise you anything but what have you got to lose?

The Best MLM Business For Engineers

If you are an Engineer or other technical professional you are probably earning good money but also understand that time is the most valuable resource, and that is in short supply. If you have money but no time to enjoy it what is the purpose???

TIME AND MONEY!

Ideally we need both right? Time and Money! Yes that’s it, isn’t it? As with most high paid professions it can take a lot of time investment into a career to be successful. So how can you get both time and money? You need to consider leveraging your time to get more of it. As long as we trade time for money you will eventually run out of time in the day. There’s only 24 hours day for each of us. But how can we leverage it better?

TIME LEVERAGING

The only way to get more time in your life is to be able to buy it back. You need to stop only trading time for money. The MLM or Network Marketing Business model works off a principle of time duplication. It is based on the J. Paul Getty phrase where he said ” I would rather get paid 1% of a hundred mens efforts instead of 100% of my own efforts”

That’s what the concept of network marketing and franchising is based on. In reality each and every one of us can use this method to build an income that is ongoing by building a team of like minded people who understand the power of the numbers in this model.

Consider this: If you asked most people if they would prefer to have a penny every day doubled or a million dollars they usually say the million bucks. But lets see how this would really lay out.

Day 1: $.01
Day 2: $.02
Day 3: $.04
Day 4: $.08
Day 5: $.16
Day 6: $.32
Day 7: $.64
Day 8: $1.28
Day 9: $2.56
Day 10: $5.12
Day 11: $10.24
Day 12: $20.48
Day 13: $40.96
Day 14: $81.92
Day 15: $163.84
Day 16: $327.68
Day 17: $655.36
Day 18: $1,310.72
Day 19: $2,621.44
Day 20: $5,242.88
Day 21: $10,485.76
Day 22: $20,971.52
Day 23: $41,943.04
Day 24: $83,886.08
Day 25: $167,772.16
Day 26: $335,544.32
Day 27: $671,088.64
Day 28: $1,342,177.28
Day 29: $2,684,354.56
Day 30: $5,368,709.12

Network Marketing is like that too. You don’t need to know a ton of people because if everyone just knows a few the numbers on your team will expand greatly. Remember it starts out slow but build over time.

WHAT SHOULD ENGINEERS LOOK FOR IN A MLM COMPANY?

If you are an engineer and understand everything we have just covered then what should you look for in a network marketing company? Here is my list of must haves:

  • Online Lead Generation System
  • Email Auto Responder to follow up
  • Online Sales Funnel Tool
  • Teaching and Training System
  • I growing product category that is consumable
  • Ability to work with like minded people
  • Excellent compensation plan with no income limits
  • Ability to work in your spare time
  • Little to no investment
  • No home, hotel or restaurant meetings
  • No need to attend rah rah functions
  • Stable company financial position
  • Most important Introverts can build it successfully

If you are like me and are better with computers and machines than people you can still build a second income that could allow you to work less hours and spend more time with your computer or robots. You can also invest that money into your retirement or even retire early if you wanted too. Who knows, you may even be able to buy a ticket on the first passenger space flights soon! It’s up to you and yes you can do it your way!
