Your upline is your choice
There is no question that picking the right upline (actually, I like the term ‘up-team’ much better) makes a major difference in your success and leads to more sponsoring.
You may believe since you’ve already been sponsored that this is not an important post for you but that would not be accurate. The best way to build a big team is through your personals and to do that we simply must become the sponsor that we would want ourselves. Additionally, knowing 3 key points will help you sponsor more people.
Simple. Most people are a little reluctant to join. If you know what today’s avatar is looking for and how to reassure them of your commitment to them, they enroll.
Let me suggest you ‘grab a pen’ and jot these 3 points down. Look at them… and ask the tough questions.
Does my upteam give me all 3 of these things?
If they gave me these 3 things, would my chances improve?
What else can you think of that would create an ideal sponsor that would help you get the most out of both yourself and the opportunity you are working?
The 3 things?
Key Points and Promise
New people don’t understand the comp plan, product or business. Letting them make calls on their own is throwing them to the sharks. Really.
When connecting with the upteam, get a promise that they will make initial calls with you for 30 days minimum and give you 2-3 hours each, every week.
Once you’ve got the initial call ‘down pat’ use them for the next 30 days to plug people into them to close for you.
Upteams work for you. They earn off your efforts. If they are not willing to invest their time in you, you can ‘bank’ that they will not invest in your team.
Listen, Learn and Practice
Now, you’ve got to do your part too. Listen and learn and practice so you can do it on your own. But use them to close. After all, if they are making 5000-11,000 a month, they know how to enroll people. Do not enroll without this promise and, personally I don’t enroll until all 3 have set up the schedule with me for the first 2 weeks.
Upteams are famous for saying, “I’m here to help if there is anything you need let me know.” What a crock of bullshit.
New people don’t know what they need and are probably a tad intimidated by the success of others so they never call and ask. How convenient, eh? They get to sound like great guys or gals… but never do anything to really help.
Is there any doubt that the ‘initial contact’ with prospects is where everybody needs help? So when they tell you “if there is anything I can do’ tell them, “I want you to make 2-3 hours of initial calls a week for the first month with me.”
If they decline… walk!
If you volunteer these things to prospects… they will join. Here’s the post that proves that is EXACTLY what people are looking for. And you’ll sponsor more and have more people sponsoring. Learning the networking marketing skills from people succeeding is the key to building a quick success story.
As an additional point, if you are in between companies… you, not the person who contacted you, have the right to pick who you want to sponsor you. Ask the tough questions first and you’ll avoid tough situations later.
