How To Sell a Business Opportunity

Unfortunately, you are probably making a huge mistake when it comes to building your downline, which is why your business is struggling. You are trying to sell a business opportunity instead of getting your foot through the door by selling a product. Leading with a product is the best way to build your down line and excel at network marketing.

How it Works

Whenever MLM companies try to sell opportunities to new prospects, the prospects turn them down. The reason is simple. They don’t know or trust the person so they have no reason to invest their time, money, or effort into them. On the other hand, when you lead with a product, you are able to deliver value to the person. You are able to help them solve problems that they have suffered from for a period of time. That allows you to build trust. That trust turns into a relationship.

What If? Stock PhotographyIn addition, this process allows you to build your email list. As your list grows, you will have more leads to cultivate and turn into members of your downline. This is a great way to build a solid downline that will help your business thrive.

Quality Products

In order for this strategy to work, you need to come up with quality products. It’s also a good idea to choose products that have a high payout so you can earn a Get More Leadsnice income. That way, you won’t have to deal with your online business struggling anymore. My Lead System Pro has helped countless MLM companies earn money while building email lists that are full of prospects. You can pick products to market and then load your own network marketing opportunity into the system. MLSP will help you generate leads and build your list. Then, MLSP will help you nurture those leads in order to turn them on to your network marketing opportunity. Because it’s all loaded into one system, the transition from customer to member of your downline will be seamless.

If you are sick of watching your business struggle, take the first step by leading with products. Once you do that, you will build relationships and finally grow your downline with people who are ready to sell your opportunity. At that point, you can start saving for retirement or taking some vacations. You will be amazed by the financial choices you have once you start making money with your network marketing opportunity.

How To Improve On The Art Of Selling

It has long been known that until something is sold, nothing else happens. The selling profession is therefore one of the most challenging and most profitable career paths one can choose. And for those with an innate ability to sell, it can be gratifying and profitable from day one. Others, who may want the income and freedom that comes from sales but who are not as naturally gifted, will benefit from a few specific tips on their way to improving sales.

What are Your Best Types of Sales

First, acknowledge what type of sales you’re best at. Door to door business to consumer, telemarketing, corporate business to business, and online are all different ways of selling. And while most salespeople must focus intensely on prospecting and business development, many in the corporate business to business sales world are responsible for closing million dollar deals in partnership with others at their company who generate the lead. Once you’ve narrowed down the type of sales you’re best at, which may take years as you progress through your sales career, there are some additional resources that could help you.

Improving Your Sales

Sales coaching is a new form of improving your sales. You partner weekly with a veteran salesperson outside of your company who works with you on specific Business team working togethertechniques, motivations, scripts, behavioral training, or attacks the call reluctance or lack of confidence you may feel in your role. The sales coach is your advocate, someone who has experience working with many types of salespeople and can assist you with a perspective that only an unbiased third party can provide. Another resource is lead generation. Specifically, find, hire, or create a method of generating more leads.

Sales is a Numbers Game

Sales ultimately is a numbers game – the more leads you have in your pipeline, the greater your chances of closing more deals. If you can pay someone to generate more leads or create a direct marketing method of generating interest, much of your hard work will be done for you. This would free you up to focus on closing deals and generating income. The final resource to consider is one not many people think of, but can be tremendously valuable. This idea was first proposed by Ben Franklin and popularized by Napoleon Hill in “Think and Grow Rich”. Create a mastermind of salespeople. This requires some work up front but could pay great dividends, especially if you don’t compete directly and mutually respect each other. A group like this could have various forms – you could be local to each other and meet weekly, or connect online or by phone on a regular basis, you could all be part of the same industry but sell in non-competitive territories, or you could hire a coach among you to assist each of you in getting the most out of this process. It’s been proven time and again that a mastermind group of similarly driven and focused salespeople could be one of the most beneficial things you do.

Regardless, if you’re committed to sales success, you must continually improve yourself using either motivational techniques, lead generation and prospecting resources, or outside support from coaches or mastermind groups.

 

Have A Great Day!

Healthy Stress vs. Unhealthy Stress

The phrase “healthy stress” may seem like an oxymoron, but it’s actually a reality. Stress is inescapable; everyone feels some stress at some points throughout their Controlling stresslives. Our bodies are therefore equipped to handle certain types and amounts of stress. We can even benefit from it.

So what is the difference between healthy and unhealthy stress? What makes stress healthy? Here are some things to think about regarding stress and its role in your health.

Healthy Stress  (Eustress)

The Great Motivator

Without stress, not very much would get done. Stress is what drives you to teach your kids proper behavior, to earn money, and to pay your bills on time. It is what keeps you on your toes in a football game or when catching your tumbling toddler. A certain amount of stress about traffic accidents motivates you to drive safely.

Reaction Time

Did you feel stress when that person cut you off in traffic? The stress response was partially responsible for your quick pressure on the brakes! Stress can motivate us into quick, sometimes life-saving action. In the case of an emergency, one of your stress hormones – adrenaline – kicks in, and prompts you to act quickly and sometimes with remarkable strength.

Endorphins

Endorphins are the “feel good” neurotransmitters. When the body is stressed or types of stress in pain, its natural pain relievers are released in the form of endorphins. Exercise is a healthy way to bring this kind of endorphin-releasing stress onto your body. While you should not exercise to the point of unbearable pain, it’s okay to “feel the burn” and push yourself a little. Massage therapy and acupuncture can also stimulate the release of endorphins.

Other Health Benefits

Experts are finding anti-tumor activity in people who undergo healthy stress, indicating that healthy stress stimulates the immune system.

Unhealthy Stress (Distress)

Constant

The unhealthy type of stress is constant. You do not return to a normal energy level after it has passed. Unhealthy stress can take the form of constant worry, depression, and exhaustion. It can cause weight gain as well due to the release of cortisol, the “stress hormone.”

Immunity

Continual stress weakens the immune system. That can leave you more susceptible to everyday illnesses and more serious problems such as cancer. (As a cancer survivor my doctor and I both believe this was the main contributing factor in my diagnosis!)

Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff

People who are chronically stressed usually worry about common, everyday things over which they have no control. These are the kinds of things that are REDUCE STRESS written on notebook papernot going to go away, such as paying bills, keeping the house clean, and so forth. Once one set of worries is tackled, another set comes along. Accepting these annoyances as part of life can go a long way in helping you cope with unhealthy stress.

Have A Great New Year!

Save Time By Managing Your Emails 

Email is great, and saves a lot of time. You no longer have to wait three or more days for someone to get a message from you. You can use it to be more organized, cartoon holding email fileset tasks, and so much more. But, email can also get out of control and suck up a lot of time if you’re not organized. Here are a few ideas to help you save time and possibly become a little more organized if you need that kind of stuff.

Use Rules, Filters, Labels and Folders 

Remember that simple is better than complicated so don’t go too crazy with these, but do create labels and/or rules and filter to help you organize your mail better.

Read Emails and Act Immediately

When you open an email, take care of it immediately. Read it, then act. If it requires nothing, delete it; if it has something interesting you want to note, use a note-taking program to save it. If it has a task, copy and paste into your to-do list and calendar.

Set Specific Times for Checking Your Email 

Don’t keep your email notifications on all day long so that you’re constantly dealing with email. Instead, choose specific times during the day to check email, at the very least first thing in the morning, after lunch, and about an hour before the close of business. Let your people know your schedule.

Create Separate Email Addresses 

The great thing about email addresses is in most cases you’re not limited to Business Emailhow many you can have. Don’t go nuts, but do create a separate email for unimportant information such as business that requires an email sign-up to view information, or non-relevant newsletters. Separate customer service addresses are good too.

Be Free with the Delete Key 

It’s tempting to save all those cool newsletters with great points and things to learn, but the truth is, you’re not likely to ever read them again. Use your note-taking tool to keep the most important points, and then delete.

Create a Swipe File or Hot Keys with Automatic Replies 

If you find yourself saying the same things over and over again, which is not uncommon, create a swipe file or hot keys that enable you to answer those questions again and again. Another way is to create a FAQ on your website and link to that specific answer.

Keep Email Replies Short and Simple 

You don’t want to write really long emails to anyone. If you do, people will get confused and not really understand your answer. At the most an email answer should be about three or four paragraphs. If you include bullet points it will be easier for the recipient to act on.

Copy Tasks to Your Calendar Immediately 

Use your calendar to its fullest advantage by copying and pasting anything with a date in it to your calendar immediately. If it’s a task, copy and paste to your Less Stress Just Ahead on a Green Signproject management system too in order to stay on track with your activities.

A final idea is to outsource anything to do with customer service to someone else. That way you don’t even need to deal with it. Using these tips and tricks can help you manage your emails so that they don’t take up too much of your time and effort. Taming the email monster will pay off in many ways and give you back more time each day to use on more important tasks.

Have A Great Day!

What Causes Stress?

When it comes to causes of stress, there are some obvious ones and some not-so-obvious ones. Obvious stressors include things like the loss of a loved one, a man sitting at a computer stressed outhouse fire, the loss of a job, illness, or any number of traumatic situations. Some more subtle causes of stress could be a difficult work relationship, finances, or a feeling of being out of control.

In discussing what causes stress, it’s a good idea to take a look at just what stress is. Stress is not necessarily bad – it actually can keep you safe or save your life. For example, the stress you feel as you begin to cross an intersection and someone runs a red light is crucial to your fast, physical reaction – you slam on the brakes. Your body responds to the stressful situation with a “fight or flight” reaction, which makes your natural defenses kick in full-force.

Some types of stress help you do a good job at work or in some sort of performance or event. Chronic stress, however, which is more than just an incident here and there, can have a detrimental effect on health and emotions. In a nutshell, stress is the body’s response to intense or difficult situations. Those situations can be sudden and traumatic, or continual and subtle.

Here are some possible causes of stress.

1. Difficult relationships

Being “trapped” in a difficult marriage or familial relationship can be very stressful, and can become a source of chronic stress. Divorce is said to be one of the most stressful relationship situations that people can experience.

2. Retirement

Yes, retirement can be a stressor, according to some sources. While you won’t People pulling a stress sign in different directionshave work-related stress anymore, some people find the retirement of their spouse, for instance, very stressful – suddenly, their schedule is completely different. The retired individual may feel useless without a daily job to do.

3. Illness

Grave illnesses like cancer are very stressful for the sufferer and his or her family. It has been said that stress is “murder” on relationships, which may add additional stress to the illness situation.

4. Injury

Sustaining an injury can be a big stressor. Depending on the nature of the injury, your entire lifestyle may experience upheaval and chronic pain may be a factor. Intense pain, even if temporary, can cause extreme stress.

5. Perfectionism

Do you feel like everything has to be “just right”? For you, it may be very stressful when things aren’t perfect. And since imperfection is a big part of life, a perfectionist may find him or herself stressed chronically.

6. Holidays

Shopping, family, traffic add in those fun fill activities to your already hectic lifestressed out woman Christmas shopping can take years off your life if you allow them to stress you out.
