The Year in Review 2015

 

Are you ready to move past the year 2015 - to close it out in style, and welcome in the year 2016.

 

We all have 366 days, because it is a leap year, stretching before us in 2016, and we can write whatever new book we want.

 

Listen in to the show as I share some of my major take aways from what I experienced in my business this past year, and all that I learned from that experience.

 

I started a new Direct Sales Business. I got my coaching certification. I traveled. I took my daughter to the UK to study abroad. And, I ran in way too many directions to make anything just a solid success. Although it was a success, it was not the type of success in any one area I wanted. I learned that focus is key - or should I say I relearned and had it reinforced!

 

Here are questions to ask yourself - 1. What movie genre would best describe the last year of your life (e.g., adventure, tragedy, romance, drama, or comedy)? . 2. What two or three major themes kept recurring in your life the last year? . 3. What accomplishments are you most proud of achieving last year? . 4. What do you feel you should have been acknowledged for, but weren’t? . 5. What disappointments or regrets did you experience last year? . 6. What was missing from your life last year as you look back? Look at major areas of your life. . 7. What major life lesson did you learn last year? Try to break them down into small statements.

 

What was the most memorable part of the year for you?

 

What were the three biggest lessons you learned?

 

Look back at your calendar - what were your priorities? You can always tell by what is listed there.

 

How are you different starting this year, 2016, than you were starting 2015?

 

Who are you grateful for in this past year?

 

On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate the year overall?

 

Okay, let’s get busy making 2016 all that we want it to be!

Let’s explore how much better you can feel when you focus on Progress and action vs results.

Focus on Progress and Action and Not Results

 

Notes from today’s show -

 

It can be a downer to only look at results.

 

We talk to a few people and no one buys or says yes. We think it must not work, Or , it must be us.

 

We are developing skills, and it takes time.

 

What you say and how you say it does matter. Success Language.

 

Network and build relationships.

 

You will be rewarded or punished based on past behaviors and how you treat people. Their perception of you.

 

Focus on how you are progressing.

 

Track your actions. Focus only on those actions in the beginning.

 

An accounting colleague shared that her average time is 4-6 times to convert a client. Those are touch points she has had with the potential client along the way.

 

How many times are you connecting with your prospects?

 

This is where consistency is so important. 

 

Are you working your list? Have you made your list? How many contacts are you making daily and weekly off that list? Are you sticking with your business plan no matter what the immediate outcome is?

 

Are you asking for referrals?

 

Are you creating new warm market? How are you doing that?

 

If you are networking and getting out in your community, you must show up to be taken seriously.

 

Are you making contacts when you are out and about? At coffee shops? Standing in line?

 

My makeup experience at Vons.

 

How about talking to other parent’s at kid activities? Or are you in a shell?

 

Don’t focus on who buys or joins. Focus on making real connections, setting up one on ones and staying in touch.

 

This is a business of constant and repeated exposures of your business. You must be sharing what you are doing.

 

Focus on the progress you are making in your growth and business skill development and your team and income will grow with it.

 

I’ve mentioned we are going to do a book of the month on this show for the coming year. I promise I have chosen 12 books that if you just stick with these 12 books, you can take yourself and your business all the way to the top

 

I’ll be sharing that list on an upcoming show.

You’re Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 214, and today, we are going to talk about how to stay accountable in your business and the power in an accountability partner. this is part of my month long series in giving you tools and ideas to prepare you for an awesome next year, or next quarter, depending on when you are listening in.

Accountability in Your Direct Sales Business

 

Think of the people who have the type of success you want. What do they all have in common?

 

A work ethic! How is your work ethic?

 

If the top income earner in your company met you for coffee and asked you to get out your calendar and show/tell what you did last week to work your business, would you be happy with what you have to show and tell?

 

Be your own best coach.

 

Track your actions.

 

Track your results.

 

Use a simple notebook or text note on your computer or phone.

 

Set goals at the beginning of the week. These can be based around intentions, because you control that.

 

Tally actions and results at the end. Reward yourself for achievements. Be tough on yourself for falling short.

 

Consider getting an accountability partner.

 

Not your upline or anyone on your team. Ideally, someone cross line who you can grow with.

 

Ideally, you want someone who matches your drive and commitment. It can take some time to find this.

 

First, determine what you are truly committed to and then let your upline know. Ask if she/he might be able to help you locate a few people who match this same intensity,

 

Have a few phone conversations first. Decide together how you want to set things up - check in twice weekly? Daily, Phone, text, FB?

 

Decide on rewards and consequences. Maybe a fine to each other.

 

Be sure you set a timer and don’t let it ever turn into a complaining or negative environment.

 

Be honest with each other and give each other space to leave or move on if it’s not working. This is why it should not be someone super close to you.

 

Keep it more business oriented.

 

I’ve mentioned we are going to do a book of the month on this show for the coming year. I promise I have chosen 12 books that if you just stick with these 12 books, you can take yourself and your business all the way to the top

 

The first book we will be reading is Feal the Fear and Do it Anyway, by Susan Jeffers. It’s in the show notes so you can find and reference it.

 

This is not a Network Marketing book, but it is awesome for anyone who wants to get Unstuck!

 

We all have fear, and some fears never go away. But, that doesn’t mean we have to let them limit us.

 

From the book -

 

With dynamic techniques and profound advice, Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway® has guided so many readers around the world to turn their fear, indecision and anger into power, action and love. Learn the tools that will vastly improve your ability to handle any situation so that you can become powerful and decisive in the face of your fears. Discover that everyone has the same fears but, by applying the wisdom that Susan Jeffers offers in this breakthrough book, you can literally feel the fear…and do it anyway!

 

In this case, you know that you don't like the fact that lack of trust in yourself is stopping you from getting what you want out of life. Knowing this creates a very clear, even laser-like, focus on what needs to be changed. You don't have to scatter your energy wondering why. It doesn't matter. What matters is that you begin now to develop your trust in yourself, until you reach the point where you will be able to say:

 

WHATEVER HAPPENS TO ME, GIVEN ANY SITUATION, I CAN HANDLE IT!

 

This book will help keep you accountable.

Mastery Vs Overload in Your Home Business

 

Mastery is a critical component to success in your business, wouldn’t you say? And, sometimes when we start a new business, in order to get more out of life, we can fall into overwhelm and feel like we are spinning our wheels.

 

So, let’s talk about how we make things simple.

 

Think about this - how many books have you read or are you reading as part of your direct sales journey?

 

And, how much of what you learned have you taken action on? Or mastered?

 

How many videos are you watching, blogs are you reading, podcasts are you listening to or courses are you buying?

 

I met a man once at an online marketing seminar who had charged over $10,000 and still had not even created a blog.

 

Let’s make it easy for you. What is ONE skill you most want to master NOW, and first?

 

Take that one skill and challenge yourself to work on it before moving on to anything else, and then find someone else to teach it to.

 

MASTERY is key to success in anything. Are you skilled at contacting, inviting and presenting yet? Have you made your list and worked through it? Have you developed your success language?

 

Do you have a daily and weekly action plan developed yet for your business?

 

Or, are you guilty of hopping from one thing to the next.

 

Social Media can wreak havoc on the mastering anything. We see and hear of something and are on to the next big social media tool.

 

Why? What is the magic sauce you think you see with that platform? What is it about that one platform that’s going to make a difference, if you haven’t mastered the skills needed to connect with others.

 

If someone approaches you about your business, do you have a system in place to take them through to share the business?

 

Are you prepared to ask them to join you and then get them started?

 

There is a statistic out there that most people spend 98% studying and only 2% taking action. Don’t let that be you.

 

I’ve mentioned we are going to do a book of the month on this show for the coming year. I promise I have chosen 12 books that if you just stick with these 12 books, you can take yourself and your business all the way to the top

 

I’ll be sharing that list on an upcoming show.

Weekly Scheduling and Planning in Your Home Business

 

The last few shows have focused on journaling, creating consistency, a calendar and planner and these are all tools to help you be successful. As I record this show, it’s December, 2015 and we are about to move into a fresh new year, filled with hope and promise.

 

My goal is to get you really set for success.

 

Think about this - how many times do you wake up, jump out of bed and really know what you are going to do in your direct sales business each day?

 

Do you have a written plan? A list of people and action steps on the list?

 

Most people don’t. However, the top income earners do, and since success leaves clues, let’s share what that scheduling and planning can look like for you to have the success you want.

 

How much time do you think it’s really going to take for you to build a successful business?

 

What if you would take one focused hour each day, with specific action steps, and work your business?

 

I’m going to make this easy, because you don’t even have to have one full hour at a time. 

 

We are going to break that one hour down into fifteen minute segments, with undivided attention. Before long, you might find more than fifteen minutes for each segment, and believe me, your business growth will show it.

 

The key is to be focused and dedicated. It is going to involve picking up the phone, but what if it’s only for fifteen minutes.

 

The key is to stick with the Power Hour system, which is what this is called. The challenge is that most people begin to make excuses and find reasons why they are just too busy. But really? Four fifteen minute segments a day - who can’t make that time in their schedule, if they are really committed?

 

Here are some ideas for those 15 minute segments -

 

Customer Connection calls/messages - 15 minutes of reaching out to share just your products and ask if you might share a sample, or get together.

 

Prospecting Connection Calls/messages - 15 minutes of reaching out to share the business side, asking for referrals.

 

Follow up calls/messages - 15 minutes of following up with people you have talked with in the past about either the products or the business.

 

Team calls/messages - 15 minutes to reach out to your team and just touch base.

 

Now, I come from the old school of making phone calls, but more and more people operate with text and Facebook messenger, so that is why I call is calls/messages.

 

The nice thing about Facebook messenger is that you can see when a message is read!

 

You can also factor in other blocks of time in your week for other social media tasks such as Blogging, because as you know, I am a huge fan of blogging to create leads and expand your status as an “expert” in your field.

 

The key, above all, is to put it into your calendar. Those 15 minute segments each day and even if you work full time, you can make this happen. 15 minutes before work, 15 minutes at lunch, 15 minutes right after work, and 15 minutes after dinner. Even with children, getting them self engaged for 15 minutes gets easier and easier.

 

Another key thing is to create a note on your phone for reminders of people who you need to follow up with, or who come to mind.

 

 

I would love to hear how you are finding this simple process. Are you committed to making it happen? I sure hope so. You will see success. I promise!

Consistency in Your Home Business 

 

As I record this show, it’s December, 2015 and we are about to move into a fresh new year, filled with hope and promise.

 

As you reflect back on how your business has gone this year, ask yourself this question -

 

Have I been consistent?

 

Have I been consistent in the areas that I need to for success?

 

Chances are, if you are not where you want to be, you might be answering those questions with a big NO!

 

Consistency is your practice to mastery. 10,000 hours to mastery in anything. Malcolm Gladwell - the Outliers.

 

Notes from Today’s Show:

 

Start with your why.

 

Plan your year, month, weeks and day.

 

Write it down.

 

Use a calendar.

 

Create a vision.

 

Plan and write it down on Sunday, track it at the end of the week. When you know what to do, and when to do it, you will be more relaxed and productive.

 

Get an Accountability partner.

 

Focus on your progress and not your results.

 

Up your game by paying attention to where you can improve.

 

Taking regular action steps will reinforce consistency, because it becomes a habit.

 

Ask for feedback.

 

Grow daily in your process.

Journaling For Home Business Success Last year, my good friend Lisa Grossmann sent me a blank journal for the holidays! On the front, it says - Forever is Composed of NOWS!

 

I had been contemplating journaling again for a while, and I looked at this as a nudge from my mentor and the universe to get after it!

 

On a recent show, http://JackieUlmer.com/208, I talked about the passion planner for productivity success. This tool is one I highly recommend.

 

You can journal in this, too. You can learn more at http://PassionPlanner.com

 

And, they have a referral program, and it’s not an affiliate program. If you order, I would love if you would enter my email address into the box that asks who referred you - jackieulmer @ gmail.com - and while I already have ordered mine for the year, I love using these as rewards and giveaways, even for the show!

You’re Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 209 and on today’s show, I’m going to share some ideas on how to time block for success and sanity in your direct sales business. Do you ever feel scattered about how to get off your own personal treadmill? Wonder how to manage a life, perhaps a job and a family, and still build a business. Let’s cover some productivity ideas in today’s show.

Need some coaching to move you forward? My one on one and inner circle programs are LIVE! Are you looking for coaching to be successful in your Network Marketing business? Want to also learn how to generate your own leads online? My Inner Circle Coaching Program may be just what you need. Or, maybe it's one on one coaching. Learn more about both at StreetSmartWealth.com/coach

Time Blocking in Your Calendar For Direct Sales Success

It’s crazy how we can get on a treadmill of our own creation, juggling too many balls, and not keeping many in the air. You know what I mean, right?

If we aren’t careful, we can begin to feel so overwhelmed that we just want to quit the whole thing. But, that’s not a solution we want, either.

There are many facets to building a successful direct sales business, and if we aren't careful, we will wear ourselves out and lose track of the things that matter most to us....like our family, our own health and self care and the reasons we started a business to begin with.

I want to teach you how to build this business part time, with a full time mindset as you also handle the other important parts of your life.

When I first started my direct sales business, I had an all or nothing mindset - if I couldn’t spend 2-3 hours working my business, I just wasn’t going to do anything at all.

I was coming at it from an employee mindset.

Things totally changed for me when I learned to block time and chunk time.

On the last show, http://JackieUlmer.com/208, I talked about the passion planner for productivity success. This tool is one I highly recommend.

You can learn more at http://PassionPlanner.com

And, they have a referral program, and it’s not an affiliate program. If you order, I would love if you would enter my email address into the box that asks who referred you - jackieulmer @ gmail.com - and while I already have ordered mine for the year, I love using these as rewards and giveaways, even for the show!


So, let’s talk about blocking and chunking your calendar.

Here’s how it works:


Be sure your why and goals are written in your Passion Planner so they are visible and front and center every day, and at all times throughout the day.


Otherwise, the excuses and procrastination will pile up, right? Most of us have been there.

We are ALL already busy beyond belief, stressed to the max. And, now we have this crazy direct sales business we have added in, and how are we ever going to find the time?

So, knowing your why will help you MAKE the time, because you will never find the time. 

I put everything on my calendar and create a to do list in my calendar. It's all in one place.

So, start each week with writing in all of the things that are a must do, as in non-negotiable in your life.

A job
Kid’s activities
Family commitment
Self Care
Spiritual

These are examples of things to write in there first.

Now, look at the time that is left and see how you can squeeze in small blocks of time to do this VERY important income producing activities.

If you can create a POWER HOUR each day, then do it.

That is one hour that you focus on nothing but income producing activities.

No email, unless you are following up with a customer or prospect.

No training or conference calls.

NOTHING but those key things that lead you to growth and income.

Contacting, inviting, presenting and following up.

Phone, text, email, Facebook message, smoke signal - whatever - this is what your power hour is for.

If you can’t find an hour, create that hour by finding four 15 minute segments each day. EVERYONE can make this time, if they are serious and committed.

For other passive marketing things, such as blogging and content creation, find chunks of time and batch things together. So for instance, I usually record 2-4 podcasts at one sitting. This means I only have to get my microphone and “studio” set up once. And, I can do this in about an hour so it’s pretty cool.

I do the same for blogging.

Social media is something I squeeze into pockets of unproductive time throughout the day.

For other things that happen weekly and monthly, I have those on the calendar too.

Networking events - some are weekly and some are monthly.

Team communication - a weekly broadcast to the team is on my calendar.

Team coaching - I’m in my Facebook group daily, and then do calls at set times, as well.

Home Parties and one on ones - getting time blocked on the calendar for this will help ensure that it actually happens.

I use Sundays usually to look ahead and plan for my week.

And, I use a to do list, and I focus on 3 big things each day that I want to achieve, and that’s it. If I finish and want to add more, then I can. 

Give this a try and see what happens for you. We are coming into a new year, why not try it out?

Ready to Get Your Calendar Set Up for the Next Year?

If you’ve listened for long, you know I am a big fan of using a calendar for success in your business. And, for me, not just an online calendar, but an old fashioned, paper calendar that I can write in, goal set in, create a to do list in and more.
And, most of the time, I kind of improvise with a calendar from the office supply store. I’ve tried Franklin Covey and others, and they are okay, but none have ever totally been just the right fit for me.
Earlier this year, my good friend Kimber King turned me on to Passion Planners, and it started when she posted some photos on Facebook of her own calendar and day.

The more I looked, the more I realized that this is a great tool for anyone in business and who has a busy life with lots of things to put in there. And, who doesn’t right?

This is a tool designed to help you with your life, in so many ways beyond just scheduling your calendar and appointments.

When you get it, you want to sit down with it and define your goals and dreams, yes DREAMS for the year, and beyond. Then , you can break those down into actionable steps to move you closer to them.

Make sure you use it every day to keep on task and keep your goals right in front of you. Let it help you guide your daily decisions as you look at your goals and the tasks you’ve laid out for yourself so you can ask - is this moving me closer to or away from my goals?

Having your goals right out in front of you is the first BIG step on taking action on those goals.

You can learn more at http://PassionPlanner.com

And, they have a referral program, and it’s not an affiliate program. If you order, I would love if you would enter my email address into the box that asks who referred you - jackieulmer @ gmail.com - and while I already have ordered mine for the year, I love using these as rewards and giveaways, even for the show!

And, one thing that is exciting about this company is that it is a start up, from her garage. At very least, go get inspired by her story and see someone who is fulfilling her purpose and mission.

Now, in the next show, I am going to cover time blocking and really USING your calendar for success for things like a Power Hour and how to use small blocks of time for success.

But, for today, as we get ready to move into a new year, I want to really encourage you to take action on a new plan for this upcoming new year. This is the time of year when we plan, contemplate and think about what lies ahead for us, and what we want to make happen.

Having this visual tool of a passion planner can help you keep those goals in front of you consistently.

You’re Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 207 and on today’s show, I’m going to share some ideas about how to ask the question why - but maybe not in the way you’ve thought about it before. Let’s get into some mindset training to help you overcome some obstacles.

I got some great feedback on show 204 on how to keep your friends on Facebook, and specifically the part about who comes to mind when you are fearful of sharing anything about your business. Listen in at JackieUlmer.com/204 if you haven’t.

Asking Why to Move You Through Challenges

Are you struggling with fear, procrastination, time management, lack of people to talk to or anything else in your Direct Sales business?

Many of us do, and there is usually a subconscious reason we are struggling with these things, so let’s dive in, shall we?

Whenever we have challenges in moving forward and taking action in your business, it is something within you that is holding you back, usually something from way back in the past.

This is where being honest with yourself and going “within” can be very powerful when you work things right.

Set aside some quiet time and think about all of those things that are stopping you. In fact, I recommend journaling and I’ll be sharing the power in this in an upcoming show, as this is something I committed to and stuck with this past year and WOW - is it ever enlightening.

So, on a piece of paper of in your journal, write down EVERYTHING that you feel you are struggling with right now in your business.

I already mentioned a few - fear, procrastination, time management, lack of people to talk to, and a few others might be finding time to follow up, negative people, objections.

So, think about each one and let’s start with fear.

Ask yourself - why am I feeling fear in my business?

And, then pay attention to what comes up for you? What does your mind give you as an answer?

Write it down, and don’t overthink it. Write down what comes to mind for you immediately.

After you write that down, ask WHY, again. So, let’s say you say - I’m afraid of what other people will think or say about me.

Now ask - WHY am I concerned about what other people will think or say about me.

And, then write that down. And then again, ask - why.

Do this at least 5 times and see how far down you can go to get to the root of what is causing this challenge for you.

Reflect on each of the answers and certainly the last one you do.

What does this tell you about the situation? How can you grow from this and move past it?

Is this fear REAL or made up, and how much does it really matter to you?

You can do this for each of your challenges and any time you are feeling stuck!

You CAN become your own best coach and if you are looking for some mindset coaching, I’m here to help. Sometimes it’s just a couple of sessions and we can get your right past those issues!

You’re Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 206 and on today’s show, I’m going to talk about keeping the focus in your Direct Sales as we move into the holiday season and not spending 2-3 months doing nothing and then trying to get things re-started after the season is over.

Keeping Your Direct Sales Focus Through the Holidays

 

Rate your commitment on a scale of 1-10. Are you happy with that number and why or why not? What’s holding you back? Get real and authentic here! Do you know how to talk with people in a successful way?

 

Get StreetSmartScripts.com for help!

 

If you have a full time job, can you slack off during the holidays? No, in most cases, so treat your business the same way.

 

Use your calendar. Write down everything that is ongoing and holiday related and then focus on those small blocks of time that you can carve out and do income producing activities.

 

Here is a show on a Success Calendar - http://jackieulmer.com/creating-daily-routines-for-network-marketing-success/

 

Set goals and intentions around your holiday activities -

 

Shopping - meet new people who treat you well and listen to the show on how to talk to them and get their contact info.

 

Parties - who is new who you can meet?

 

Kid’s events - who can you meet who is also feeling frazzled?

 

Family events - be prepared for how to share and answer questions without sales.

 

Get information from people for follow up later - you don’t want to do business right at that moment at any of these events.

 

And, think about that - THAT is what creates curiosity - when you DON’t jump all over them right away to share more.

You’re Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 205 and on today’s show, I’m going to talk about Direct Sales as a great alternative to a Corporate Job, and how to make it work for you!

Direct Sales as a Corporate Job Alternative

 

Why the corporate world doesn’t work for women, and moms for sure - it’s designed to cater to those who can tune out family responsibilities, sick kids and so on, for a stretch of time through the day.

 

Corporate is looking for those who want to be on the fast track, and understandably so, as it’s BUSINESS first.

 

But, this is not a fit for women, although we have been in the work force for years, corporate has never truly adapted to the needs of a family and all of those demands.

 

This is not about women only, I realize and some men will fit into this. But, the reality is that most of the household details fall to the woman in traditional life.

 

September, 2013, the amount of women in the workforce matched the lowest recorded in 24 years, and it’s not just due to the economy, otherwise those stats would be largely the same for men.

 

The United States has one of the worst maternity policies of developed countries.

 

So, is the corporate world designed to push women out? Well, not by design but it is not a great fit.

 

Women are often forced to make a choice between their job and their family. And, we all know what is typically going to be the choice.

 

So, let’s talk about Direct Sales as an alternative and what it takes -

 

Self Motivated True Grit Determined Attitude Develop a Business Plan - SERIOUSLY - this is critical! Commit to personal development.

 

Direct Sales gets a bad rap, accused of not empowering people, and front loading and the sky high failure rate. But, the reality of that is that it’s not direct sales that doesn’t work - it’s the individual.

 

You Inc, as a business requires YOU to be the leader.

 

As far as front loading - let’s be adults. We all control our own checkbook and credit card so be grown up and say NO, when you need to.

 

Direct Sales may not be the best alternative if you need to make money RIGHT now to stay afloat and pay the bills.

 

Putting in 2 hours a week, throwing up a few posts on Facebook is not going to build you a strong, steady business.

Staying Out Of Facebook Trouble 

This show was prompted by a number of things - coaching clients, things I see on Facebook and an article. 

IF you are hesitant to share anything about your business on Social Media, the first thing to ask is - Who am I afraid of? Who do I not want to see this? 

If you really want to use social media as a tool, you can’t stay in the closet, or work through an alias if you want to be successful. 

Develop a way of sharing your business that does not come across as sales. Come up with something very professional to answer - what do you do? 

Find a few people who you admire who do social media well and you want to emulate. Study them for a few weeks and write out what they do that you like and then look at your own business and determine how you can do something similar. 

Use the 80/20 rule. No one wants to see you doing business all of the time, right? So keep it fun, social and add in your business in a strategic way. 

Stay out of sales mode - share something funny about your business; share a team success story; share a product story. 

Don’t say - Join my team, or buy from me. Find a different way of sharing and not selling, that creates an interest and makes them want to know more. 

Use a blog, and share your blog posts to a Facebook business page, and then share to your own wall. Or, pick and choose and share specific blog posts to your wall, and not all just business related. 

My MakeupBizTips.com blog, so you can see the categories I create - makeup, certainly, but also Fashion, Food, Holidays, Entertaining and so on. 

You can create a list of people you want to block from specific posts. Use this sparingly and make sure you understand WHY you don’t want them to see what you are sharing.

How to be Effective at Offline Networking Events

Hot Points From Today’s Show -

There is a time and consistency commitment to be effective. Don’t expect things to happen the first meeting. It can, and sometimes does, but don’t expect it.

Instead, have a plan for the next year.

Your first meeting and the flow - 30-60 seconds for your elevator pitch. BE prepared and don’t just wing it, or you will not make the type of memorable impact you want.

Remember - people do form an initial impression right away. Make it count!

The key are the 1 on 1 meetings you set up with those you meet. Set a goal for two a week, start with the meeting organizer. Ask who the movers and shakers are, and start your meetings there. Be bold.

Make that first one on one about building the relationship and don’t cram your business or products down their throat. 

Ask them questions and learn how to be a good referral partner to them.

Don’t oversell.

Have a follow up plan for after that meeting - home party, hotel meeting, video overview, etc.

Be consistent.

Use Facebook to continue engaging and furthering the relationship. Take photos, tag, engage and see how often you can share your products in the group. Lead with the product publicly and share the opportunity in one on ones!

The Best Script for Success With Your Network Marketing Prospects

Get all of my Scripts at http://StreetSmartScripts.com

Hot Points From Today’s Show.

There is no magic pill or best anything. There is only what is best for you and what fits.

Spend time to develop good success language.

No cultural differences.

Live prospecting and phone prospecting is different than email, text or Facebook messaging, so don’t confuse the two.

Create curiosity.

Never give a link until they say yes.

Share two - three sentences of why.

Go to show notes for what I share - http://JackieUlmer.com/201

When they express an interest in learning more, ask - Why? And, then listen.

Describe the type of person you are looking for, and try to match it to their personality, ideally!

Remember this - it takes time to develop the skills that will make you a great prospector. Be willing to spend the time to practice, drill and rehearse and perfect your initial mistakes.

Some who you talk to in the beginning will join you over time!

Good luck!

Your Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 198 and on today’s show, James asks - how fast can I build a network marketing business with Social Media, and only social media, no friends and family?

 

Need some coaching to move you forward? My one on one and inner circle programs are LIVE! Are you looking for coaching to be successful in your Network Marketing business? Want to also learn how to generate your own leads online? My Inner Circle Coaching Program may be just what you need.

How Fast Can I Build a Direct Sales Business With Social Media

 

Key points from today’s show -

 

I just passed my 16th year of marketing online and I have never missed a month of sponsoring someone into my business through the internet.

 

At the same time, I am actively involved in talking to friends and family, sharing what I do, as well as networking offline at events, groups and as I am out and about.

 

Are you coming to the internet from a few based proposition? If so, that is a recipe for disaster.

 

If you’ve read my story, you’ll know I had a team of over 10,000 already when I took my business online.

 

I was solid, making a good income and had developed the business skills I needed to be a success.

 

I had done it all, too. Warm market, putting up flyers, attending networking events, running ads, business opportunity leads and everything!

 

So, how fast can you build a direct sales business on Social Media?

 

That depends on you.

 

You must be authentic, consistent, a networker, engaged with people online, willing to be out there and letting people subtly know about your business through more of a marketing message than an advertising message.

 

Are you willing to create content? Youtube videos?

 

What ARE you willing to do?

 

You can’t be a secret agent and be successful in Network Marketing.

 

What’s your work ethic? That’s another thing to factor in.

How and Why to Share Your Story in Direct Sales

 

Key points from today’s show -

 

One of my favorite coaching clients - we’ll call her Susie - is in her 70s and just a dream. She inspires me because she is just putting her toe in the network marketing waters and I love that she is committed and pushing herself to keep adding value in life!

 

She is widowed and hasn’t worked outside of the home in over 50 years. She’s been a mom, a wife and has worn many hats as we all know happens!

 

She’s struggling to learn it all, but she is so determined!

 

This generation, and others, are often finding themselves living longer and are looking for a business for a number of reasons -

 

Money and Income Boredom Meeting New People Learning New Skills Keeping Active

 

So, Susie shared with me that she didn’t feel like she has a story. And, yet she DOES.

 

There is a saying - let your MESS become your MESSAGE!

 

My first story was staying home with my children. Now, my story is working with and teaching other moms how to do this, because I know EXACTLY how to do it and have done it, successfully!

 

We all have a story. Draw out what yours is. Write it out and then ask yourself - are there others out there in my same position? Who share my story?

 

The answer will always be yes!

 

Take your EGO out of the equation. There is no LOVE in FEAR, so approach it from a true point of love for the other person when you share your story!

What is the Easiest Direct Sales Business to Build

 

Key points from today’s show -

 

When I left my first company in search of one that better aligned with my values, I reached out to some professionals in Network Marketing and asked their opinion about what product lines are stable, and such, so I understand this question.

 

It’s not EASY to be successful in ANY business. It’s simple., but not easy because we complicate things.

 

You can see someone else soaring in a business, but until your own mindset is straight, it won’t matter what business you are attempting to build.

 

Once your mindset is straight, you can be successful at anything.

 

Make a list of things that excite you.

 

What are you passionate about? What products can you and will you talk about to anyone?

 

Listen to the last show, 195, where we talked about finding the right company.

 

Part of my criteria included:

 

Sizzle Product Competitive Retail price point for my customers Impulse Buy Highly Consumable Superb Results so my customers would re-order and refer others

 

Could you share this with others whether you get paid or not?

 

I LOVE and appreciate reviews!

Your Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 195 and on today’s show, I’m going to answer the question that Bruce asked, which is one that many people ask and that is how do I choose the right Network Marketing Company for me? There are so many out there, how does one select?

How Do I Choose the Right Direct Sales Company

 

Key points from today’s show -

 

First, there is no BEST company, regardless of what anyone says. No best pay plan, product line, no easiest company to build, no perfect one size fits all.

 

There is ONLY what is best and feels right and good to YOU.

 

Different products, pay plans and so on are going to resonate differently with each of us as individuals.

 

Just like anything else.

 

The key is to find those hot buttons for you.

 

What products can you get excited about using, sharing and talking to your friends and family about.

 

Yes, I did say friends and family.

 

How much is the start up kit?

 

Monthly auto ship costs?

 

How do you get paid?

 

What system will your sponsor be coaching you on?

 

How does all of this feel for you?

 

Can you see yourself actually doing what it takes?

 

Once you’ve found a few companies, you’ll have to do some evaluations and then go within and let your gut guide you!

 

Good luck!

Your Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 194 and on today’s show, I’m going to share the details with you about my Launch Your Online business systems and blogging challenge that I am doing through my Inner Circle Coaching Program, at JackieUlmer.com/coach

 
 

Get Your Business System Launched Online

 

So, over the last 16 years, I have had a strong passion for helping others learn how to learn to use the internet as a tool to market their Direct Sales business online, and generate leads and a Pinch Me business.

 

16 years ago, on October 15, 1999, I registered my first domain - StreetSmartWealth.com

 

And, it changed my life.

 

But, of the thousands of people who have come to me the last 14 years for coaching and asking -

 

How can I build my business like you do?

 

Only a small percentage of those have actually taken the steps, followed my coaching and actually gotten their business online and put that training into action.

 

Why?

 

Well, the Do It Yourself Technology piece stops a lot of people. 

 

But, where there is a will, there is a way, and today, with Fiverr.com and eLance.com and other very affordable ways to find help, there should be NOTHING that stands in your way.

 

So, I have started a launch your business and blogging challenge for my inner circle coaching members, and you will get email steps to take EXACTLY over the next few months to rock your business online, including:

 

Your brand, niche and target audience Domain and Hosting Your first 30 topics for your blog Your About Me Page and what needs to be there Start Here page Lead capture and giveaway Then, we get to social media and making that powerful And, marketing via social media

 

Not advertising but Marketing, and there is a difference.

 

Finally, we’ll have a 100 day blogging challenge!

Creating a Compelling Why and Vision for Your Network Marketing Business 

Key Listening points on today’s show - 

Mindset and compelling vision is what I deal with more than anything with my one on one coaching clients. It’s not the perfect script or nuts and bolts needed, but more a mindset shift to get them out of bed and into action! 

There are 3 parts that go into Who we are and what we create and those are - 

Who do we want to be, or become through our business? What do we want to have, those tangible things we want to have? And what do we want to DO with our time and money. 

This are both tangible and intangible concepts. 

Is it travel? More free time? What is it for you? 

The most compelling piece - who do you want to BECOME in your journey of building a business? 

Most of us come into our business without thinking about who we will become. 

And, when we think about becoming a six figure income earner, we have to answer some questions, and one of those is that the person who we ARE, who we BECOME; is what will attract the right people and opportunities into our business. 

As you sit down to create your vision, think first of who you want to become. Who do you admire in the profession and what are those qualities that attracts you that make you want to emulate them? 

Are there other leaders, coaches and others outside of network marketing who you would like to be more like? 

What are those qualities and what do you need to do to become that person and create those personality traits? 

My goal was to become a business builder and a leader at the same time that I was a stay home mom. So I started with WHO I wanted to be as a mom, and what those qualities looked like. 

I started there, and that made it easier to prioritize things about my business so that I could have the time, while at the same time create the income to support those goals! 

I just settled my daughter in the UK for a study abroad year in college, and the ability to have the time and income to do that - and travel there with her to get her moved in, has been a compelling part of my why. 

When your why and vision is strong enough, you will move out of your comfort zone to have all that you want; do all that you want and BE all that you desire!

How Do I Serve My Customers in the Best Way

 

Key Listening points on today’s show -

 

Customer matter, especially in light of the Vemma situation. Good customer care will keep them as customers and ambassadors. Connect to say thank you right away - Facebook message, facebook group message, email, thank you card and ongoing contact. Ask them about hosting a party, possibly. Ask them have they considered promoting the products since they love them. Ask them if they are ready to join.

Your Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 191 and on today’s show, Julie asks - how important is it that I attend events in my Network Marketing business? I have small children and my spouse is not that excited about me going. I have lots to share on this from my own experiences.

Check the podcast archives on the blog at JackieUlmer.com for previous episodes if you missed any or are new to the show.

 

How Important Are Events to My Network Marketing Business Success? Do you NEED to attend events? No. Is it advisable? Yes! Here is what events do:

 

Build belief - yours and your team.

 

You’ll see lots of other people who are normal, fabulous and it will instill in you the belief that you can do this, too, if others were.

 

It will build a team bond and culture that can’t be replicated over conference calls.

 

You and your team will learn more in a weekend than 52 weeks of conference calls.

 

Your company event is always the most important, and there are also generic events.

 

If you are interested in a smaller, boutique type event with 10 people where we develop a vision and a plan that fits you, contact me! We are putting this together for January 2016.

 

Now, as far as your kids and your spouse - they will be fine. Your kids will love the time they get with just your spouse, and you will enjoy the break! Speaking mostly to the women here. Listen as I share the kooky things I did to control the universe when I traveled! As far as your spouse’s support, now is when you need to have a heart to heart with yourself; decide how committed you are, and then have that heart to heart with your spouse.

 

I share some language on the podcast for how to do this.

 

I LOVE and appreciate reviews!

Jessica asks - I’m scared to talk to my warm market about my new network marketing business. I know I have to overcome this to be successful. what do you recommend?

 

Great question and one many of us have struggled with.

 

Need some coaching to move you forward? My one on one and inner circle programs are LIVE! Are you looking for coaching to be successful in your Network Marketing business? Want to also learn how to generate your own leads online? My Inner Circle Coaching Program may be just what you need. Or, maybe it's one on one coaching. Learn more about both at StreetSmartWealth.com/coach

 

Check the podcast archives on the blog at JackieUlmer.com for previous episodes if you missed any or are new to the show.

 

How do I let my warm market know about my Network Marketing Business?

 

First, you must detach from the outcome. You can’t base your decision to stay involved or to keep going based on what any one or two people say.

 

Go through each person on your list.

 

What does the opinion of each one mean to you?

 

Try visualizing a positive outcome as you contact and invite them to take a look.

 

Use good Success Language. You can find that at StreetSmartScripts.com

 

Use a third party approach. Be calm and use no hype!

 

Write out what you might say and then look at it from their perspective. Is it simple, not salesy, and much like you were asking for their opinion on a pair of shoes?

 

Get yourself to that point.

 

And, don’t forget the take away if they get negative - I would love to have a conversation with you about what I am doing, but until you’ve reviewed the details, you don’t know what it is, even though you think you do. If you want to watch the video, and then we can talk, I would welcome that conversation.

What Should I Blog About 

 

Your Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 189 and on today’s show, Savanna asks - what should my blog be about? Network Marketing in general, or more specific to my company products and the information about it?

 

Great question. Listen in to my answer.

Should I Blog About Network Marketing or More on My Company

 

To answer this, I have to take you full circle on my journey online:

Started 1999

Was scared to mention Network Marketing

Built my first website (no blogs then) around my Telecom company.

Changed companies and changed content to reflect Health and Wellness

Got caught up in Internet hype and changed wellness companies a year and a half later, so changed my site again.

Did not like the company or products and figured out the health products were not a good fit for me.

Started with a candle company, where I become the top income earner and built an entirely new site around candles and a business with candles.

in 2009, launched JackieUlmer.com as a blog and was doing a lot more generic training, so I switched to mostly generic content.

January this year, started with a new company in makeup and skin care, and have now launched a new blog, MakeupBizTips.com all around that product and all things have to do with makeup, fashion and fun.

It’s easy for me to find content for this, as it is EVERYWHERE. Ideas are everywhere.

So, the question for you - what are you excited about creating content around? What will you find it easy to write about? What’s your passion around?

Can you see yourself creating this content month in and month out, as that’s the commitment it takes with a blog.

Be sure and consider my Inner Circle Coaching Program and go through the target market and branding modules and learn how to define a niche for yourself and a focus.

How Do I Become a Six Figure Income Earner in Direct Sales

 

Your Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 188 and on today’s show, Tom asks - How do I become a Six Figure Income Earner in my Network Marketing business. Great question and it’s one that I get asked quite a bit as I am talking to new potential team members, or among my coaching clients.


Need some coaching to move you forward? My one on one and inner circle programs are LIVE! Are you looking for coaching to be successful in your Network Marketing business? Want to also learn how to generate your own leads online? My Inner Circle Coaching Program may be just what you need. Or, maybe it's one on one coaching.  Learn more about both at  StreetSmartWealth.com/coach


Check the podcast archives on the blog at JackieUlmer.com for previous episodes if you missed any or are new to the show.


What Does It Take to Become a Six Figure Income Earner in Network Marketing

 

It doesn’t matter what kind of business you are building - network marketing, party plan, a coaching practice or online business - it comes most often down to Mindset.

 

It takes a specific mindset to get to a six figure income in any profession.

 

The first question I always ask is -

 

Are you already earning a six figure income? The answer to this will say a lot.

 

It’s more than just developing your business skills, or the perfect script and sizzle line. It’s a mindset.

 

You must be willing to go through the challenges that it takes to build a six figure business.

 

If you’ve seen someone where it appears to happen overnight, there is typically a story before, that you are unaware of. They went through the process and paid their dues somewhere else before.

 

How much time are you willing to invest in building your business?

 

How much money are you willing to invest?

 

The time issue is critical, because when someone says - I’m gonna give it a try and I have about 10 hours a week.

 

Here is the reality - if they are working 40 hours a week now into a job and not making a 6 figure income, even 40 hours invested into their Network Marketing business is going to take some time to get it to the six figure income level.

 

It takes some time to learn the skills, develop the business flow and get comfortable with a daily routine and what to say, etc.

 

So, at ten hours a week, how long would they be willing to give it to get to the 6 figure income level?

 

We must be realistic about the time investment needed and the risk tolerance needed to get there. Will they make the list, make the contacts, follow up and develop that tough outer shell.

 

Get with the sponsor and have them help you lay out a daily action plan and develop the list of skills that you’ll want to learn to get there.

 

And, you must be a self starter. PERIOD.

 

It’s up to you - both your success and your failure. Look within and find what you need inside yourself.

 

If your sponsor is inactive, oh well. Contact your company and find someone active upline who is invested in your success, too.

 

Becoming a Six figure income earner starts with mindset, daily actions and business skills.

 

Learn the art of contacting, inviting, presenting with tools, follow up, asking them to join your team and then duplicating the process.

Social Media and a Hallmark Moment

 

Doesn’t everyone’s life just look amazing on Facebook?

 

A few years back I was shopping with my daughter and saw a sign that said - My Your Life Be As Fabulous as it Looks on Facebook. I couldn’t resist snapping the picture!

 

And, it did start me thinking - do we read too much into everyone’s “perfect looking life” on Facebook?

 

This is from a recent Periscope I did and I had to laugh since I shot the scope later at night because I had just been shooting makeup videos for my new blog! How ironic, that I thought - I can’t waste this good makeup look by not making a periscope!

 

Much like the holidays, and dreaming of those “Hallmark Moments” decorating the tree, opening gifts and so on - we can get too caught up in how we think life and things are supposed to be. When, in reality, it most often doesn’t turn out just like we think it should or will.

 

Life is messy, and that’s just how it is.

 

Actually, Periscope has taught me to be much more authentic and not worry about having my look just right before getting on live. Slap on a baseball cap, with bling, of course, and just go for it!

5 Dos and Don’t to Move Your Brand Forward on Periscope

 

First Mover Advantage - I decided not to wait until everything was perfect before I launched on Periscope. I ordered my equipment, but started with the basics of what I had - a selfie stick, my iPhone and what I had.

 

First Mover Advantage is how I launched my business online as well, and made millions along the way.

 

First, people told me I was crazy, and then they told me I got lucky.

 

I didn’t get lucky, I got going. So, I’m going to give you the same advice.

 

Figure out the basics of the equipment you need, and jump in. Swallow your pride and your fear and make things happen now!

 

Those who take action and deliver value will make this thing rock.

 

So, here are those 5 -

 

1. Give Value - there is no limit to what you can provide to people regarding direct sales, home business and personal development. The topics are limitless. No, you don’t need to be an expert. You just need to get started. What are you reading, studying and learning?

 

2. Have a call to action - I share my website and my Profit in My Pjs Report.

 

3. Be consistent - you don’t have to be the exact same time daily, but do your best to be consistent!

 

4. Use Hashtags and a captivating title with keywords. This is how people find you, especially when you are linked to Twitter.

 

5. Get Started now, and don’t wait.

 

Now, the Don’t -

 

Don’t make your platform nothing but a blatant pitch for your opportunity.

 

Can you talk about your business and products at some point? Yes, absolutely. Just launch in a way that gives value and then expand your brand.

 

Questions -

 

What do you do when you have a physical product? Most of us do have a physical product. You can showcase it, and do so from a personal story perspective and keep hype out of it. Share your product story and that will engage people more than facts and figures.

 

I share some language of what to use on the podcast.

 

Always look at things from a prospects perspective.

Your Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 185 and on today’s show, we are going to talk about the recent temporary shut down of Network Marketing Company Vemma, by the FTC, and what it means for us all.

Vemma, the FTC and What It Means For You

 

On August 26, 2015, a federal judge in Arizona issued a temporary shut down of Network Marketing company Vemma, based in Tempe, Arizona.

 

According to the ruling, Vemma is operating a pyramid scheme that promised college students riches if they sold its nutritional drinks, but most ended up losing money. And, a lot of parents were not happy!

 

Unfortunately, most of the claims do involve college students who claim they were duped into thinking they could easily make $50,000 a week, and were encouraged to incur debt to do this.

 

The challenge with this age group is that they can often get extremely overzealous in their claims, excitement and what they share with others, without regard for laws, FTC compliancy issues, or how this might ultimately affect their company.

 

So, as we all await a September hearing, what can we do, as members of the Network Marketing profession?

 

First, let's all be supportive of Vemma. I am no expert, but I don't believe they are an illegal pyramid scheme, and I doubt that the CEO, BK Borekyo is guilty of violating laws.

 

I don't know, and I am not an attorney, nor am I with Vemma, but I have met him; and know many from the company who are solid, stand up individuals.

 

Let's not be vultures, circling those who have just lost their vision, their company, for the time being, and for many, their paychecks and livelihood.

 

Instead, let's band together as a profession and show compassion, and integrity so that other's aren't left shaking their heads, saying - "See, I told you so!"

 

Next, how do we protect ourselves?

 

First, don't make claims of any kind.

 

Not income claims, or product claims, especially for those in nutritional companies.

 

Do not use the word - investment.

 

Do not make any promises of what can happen if you just do this.

 

Instead of making income claims, show the income earnings disclaimer offered by your company, no matter how pathetic it might look.

 

Here is what I say when soneone asks me about what they can expect to make -

 

Well, we have people making 7 figures and people making nothing. Where do you want to fall in that range? Let's sketch out a launch strategu and business plan to get you there.

 

Share your own personal stories and never use the word - cure. You can say your symptoms are better. Share the stories of others, and again, be careful with word choices.

 

And, never under estimate the value in customers. Choose a company that values the customer model and have some ongoing, steady customers who are not part of the pay plan.

Your Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 184


On today’s show, let's talk about creating wealth while staying happy and hungry.

 

 

Do you ever feel like you struggle with creating wealth in your Network Marketing or Direct Sales business? Do you wonder when success is ever going to show up? Do you find yourself taking more action, doing more, or falling into procrastination?

 

 

As I coach my Direct Sales clients on creating success in their business, much of the time it comes back to mindset, beliefs and that feeling of struggle we often have. Once we can get to the root of that. and move through it, all of the rest of it falls into place.

Are You Struggling in Your Pursuit to Create Wealth in Your Home Business

 

Let’s talk about some keys to “struggle free” wealth creation…

 

Do you ever feel and acknowledge that you have - ENOUGH? How often do you hear anyone share that feeling?

 

Very seldom, I am guessing.

 

Contentment around “where you are” and your current situation has less to do with what’s happening on the outside, and much more to do with your vision, and what’s going on inside of you.

 

It’s the vision you are using to view your life, and where you are headed.

 

Let’s start with focusing on what you already have. Look around you and find some things to appreciate and feel grateful for.

 

It really is true that more will show up when you do this.

 

Find some way to be content with what you have NOW, and expand that to keep moving toward what you want more of.

 

Finding contentment does not mean you should never stretch or want more. Not at all.

 

Instead, it means that you want to focus on Happy, and still Hungry.

 

Happy with where you are today, in this moment. And Hungry to continue your journey and find more of what you have and want.

 

Questions and actions for you -

 

Look around, and note what you have “enough” of right now.

 

What do you feel you don’t have enough of?

 

How might you find contentment within the two?

 

Take a few moments to focus on areas in your life where you feel “rich.” How does that feel, after you focus there? How does your soul feel?

 

What are you happy with and what are you hungry for?

 

Practice a feeling of gratitude for both.

 

Life will give you as much as you are open to receive.

 

Paul “Bear” Bryant, one of the winningest college football coaches in history didn’t focus on what his players did wrong. Instead, he replayed game films of what was great; what he wanted more of; and he inspired his players to put their attention there and continue to get more of that.

 

The subconscious mind is the source of all that we manifest in life. Your inner pictures create your outer reality.

 

If you can imagine something clearly, and then conjure up the feeling of what it is like to have that already, then your mind begins to accept that experience as real.

 

What we concentrate on and turn our attention to is what we will get, and what we will get more of.

 

Taking inspired action is important, and having a clear mental picture of where we are going is even more critical.

 

Ernest Hemingway - Never mistake motion for action.

 

If your actions are not taking you where you want to go, step back and evaluate your vision first, and pay attention there.

 

Questions for you:

 

How much time do you spend focused on what you don’t have, what you do not want and what is not working?

 

How much time do you spend focused on what you do want and what is currently working?

 

How might things change in your life if you shifted that just 10 percent, to the positive? What about 20-25% and more?

 

Take a survey of your home and surroundings. Do the things around you inspire you and make you feel uplifted?

 

If not, release and rid yourself if whatever is not putting you in a good place.

 

You can’t have a solid vision and procrastinate. Your vision will pull you forward.

Social Media as a Sharing Tool For Your Business

 

Yes, it is possible to share your business and your products out on social media in a way that does not alienate friends or family. And, there are some solid ways to do this.

 

Key Points -

 

1. You want to ease people into seeing the business side of you, if it is not something thay are used to. Don't start posting nothing but your business or you will overwhelm them and they will wonder where their friend has gone.

 

2. Start with a product story. Yes, share a short video that simply shares your enthusiasm, no link and no invitation to Private Message you. Why? Well, we aren;t stupid and anyone interested will do just that. Just share a story.

 

3. Share other related content. Maybe you are weight loss, and now you can share healthy eating recipes, workout ideas, workout clothes and anything that is related that gets them used to this side of you.

 

4. Share a video of you opening your business kit and why you decided to move form customer to also promoting the products. Again, no loink or invitation, just your story. Maybe your excitement AND that you are just a little scared. People love authenticity and vulnerability.

 

 

5. Remember 80/20 rule! Share 80% of the time socially, and weave your business in every so often. Don't stop being social on SOCIAL media!

Your Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 181 and on today’s show, I am bringing my 3rd broadcast audio from Periscope, the latest and greatest new social media platform and app! Have you been on yet? Trust me, you have First Mover Advantage if you will just jump in! Learn more about how to do this!

We will cover the 8 Laws of Periscope Success!


Need some coaching to move you forward? My one on one and inner circle programs are LIVE! Are you looking for coaching to be successful in your Network Marketing business? Want to also learn how to generate your own leads online? My Inner Circle Coaching Program may be just what you need.

8 Laws of Periscope Success for Direct Sales

 

Law 1 - Power Profile - your profile or bio is your first chance to make a great impression. Spend some time there. Get a clean, clear headshot of YOU. Not your products, or logo, unless you are seriously scoping as a brand. State clearly what you do, the problem you solve, and what value they will find. It may take some thinking as you don’t have a lot of characters. 160 characters are available and only 117 show when someone views it so make that first 117 count. Use a few emojis to create impact. Add your link in including the http because it can be clicked on the desktop site, although not on the app.

Law 2 - Create Compelling Titles - your title is what people will read when deciding if they want to watch your scope. Both your followers and those who are just perusing the app looking at what’s live will make their decision based on this. Use 1-3 hashtags, and state clearly what the topic will be and then stick to it. Use some CAPS in the title to draw interest and emojis.

Law 3 - Connect Your Twitter Account - I’ve shared this above but want to re-iterate the importance of this here. Even if you forget to announce your upcoming broadcast on all channels, if your Twitter account is connected, it will automatically announce when you hit Start Broadcast.

Law 4 - Plan Ahead and Announce on Other Social Media Channels - Prepare ahead of time and create a simple graphic using Canva, WordSwag (only on IOS), Photoshop, or any other graphic program and share on other platforms such as Facebook and Instagram.

Law 5 - Meet, Greet, and Start - It’s important to create engagement and community with your audience and gain more loyalty and followers. Just like you would greet someone who comes into your store, say hello as best you can as people enter the room. Invite them to share where they are from and maybe something to break the ice like -

 

Law 6 - Ask for What You Want - CTA - give calls to action, as people will often do what they are told! Ask them to share and tell them how to do it. Ask them to give you hearts, and tell them how to do it. Ask them to follow you, and tell them how to do it. Ask them to like your Facebook page, visit your website and so on. Ask, ask, ask! Don’t assume they just automatically know to do it!

Law 7 - Law of Reciprocity - Give to Get. If you follow, share, engage, give feedback and are a Go Giver, it will come back around. If you want hearts, share hearts. IF you want follows, follow others. If you want shares, share the content of others.

 

Law 8 - Provide Value First, and Don’t Just Advertise - as I mentioned above, it’s okay to sell, as we are all in business and that is the bottom line. Be strategic in how you sell though. Give value and quality and you will make sales!

Your Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 180 and on today’s show, I'm going to answer Steve's question about how NOT to blow it with his warm market about his Network Marketing business.

I don't want to quit, and I don't want to blow it with my Warm Market in my Direct Sales business.

 

From Steve -

 

I'm New at network marketing.  I'm having a little bit of trouble getting started- I don't want to blow all of my warm leads, so I have hardly mentioned the opportunity to any of my friends or family or coworkers.

 

 

I know if I could just get over that hurdle and start talking to a couple people a day, I would do just fine.  I just don't want to give up because this is such a great opportunity, I feel that when I quit training and actually start talking to prospects, I will be more comfortable.   

 

I need a kick-start!

 

 

Seems like it may be easier to approach strangers at first, rather than friends and family.  Any advice will be appreciated!  Thanks and have a great day!

 

-Steve

 

Listen in as I share 8 tips for success!

 

 

First, let's start with intent. WHY are you contacting these people and why do you want to share it? Intent is everything, and when you know why; can detach from the outcome and not look at anyone as if they have a dollar sign stamped on their forehead.

 

Share your product or service story, and add in the opportunity side, without hype.

 

Whatever you do, don't leave out the business side, but perhaps open with the product. And, even use a third party approach.

 

Share that you would love their help as a customer and share the cost, how to get them enrolled in a customer situation, or do it yourself for them, and be ready to follow up a week after they try the product.

 

Use good Success Language - make your list and edit your list, into categories, because you will approach people differently.

Know the system you are going to take people through, each step of the way -

 

Customer Approach

Signing Them Up

Follow Up

Business Introduction

 

 

Ask someone the 4 simple questions to see where they might fall on the "interest scale!"

 

Mindset - this is another critical piece in the equation!

Ever Feel Challenged in Your Network Marketing Business

 

Most of us face these feelings at some time. Early on, or as we get things going, and even when we reach the top!

 

Here are some questions to ask yourself when you feel challenged:

 

What is the challenge?

 

Is this something I just need to take action on?

 

Is this a challenge that I need clarity around to find the answer?

 

Is this something I need a mindset shift around, or an attitude adjustment?

 

I encourage you to “go deep within” and be honest with yourself when you answer these questions. The thing is - we all know most of the answers already. We may not be ready to hear or face the answers, but we know them.

 

Another set of questions you can ask yourself is -

 

WHAT is the challenge?

 

WHAT is the obstacle? (Is it YOU, perhaps?)

 

WHAT resources do I have available to me to assist me in solving this challenge?

 

Let’s say you are having a challenge making contacts; picking up the phone, texting or whatever - you are not making this happen.

 

You know the challenge - it it just something you need to take action on? TO just DO it?

 

Do you need clarity around it; to understand what to say and the steps to take someone through?

 

Or, do you need a midget shift?

 

And, it could be one or more of these.

 

Another positive step you can take is to set your phone to remind you regularly through out the day to think positive; to visualize; to make calls, or whatever?

 

Give this a try, just by setting your phone alarm and see what happens!

30 Years and Miles Traveled in Direct Sales

 

It was such fun to interview Louise Umeki and get her thoughts on Direct Sales and what has happened over 30 years, for her and with the profession.

 

We talk a little about her unusual start, winning the starter kit at a Director’s meeting! 

 

Learn about her struggles with upline, leadership, changing companies and her passion for assisting others in being successful.

 

Louise, like many, started her business as a struggling single mom, with low self confidence and no sales experience at all. But, through sheer determination, she stuck with it and found success and developed solid leadership and training skills along the way.

 

She didn’t like approaching strangers randomly (sound familiar?) once she went through her warm market so she found creative ways to attract people to her.

 

And, we talk about how the internet has changed things!

 

Learn more about Louise at her Facebook Page.

Creative thinking is really what this show is all about.

 

Finding new and better ways to do things. Creative thinking kicked in for me in October 1999, when I started exploring the internet as a tool to find targeted prospects for my business.

 

While I was clueless, I decided to master this process and master it.

 

I started asking - How can I find more ways to find people for my business?

 

 

Step 1 - believe that what you are looking to accomplish can be done. Vision and Mindset rule - if you don't believe it, it won't happen for you.

 

It's a harsh but true reality.

 

 

Belief in something sets the mind in motion to find a solution.

 

 

Have you ever thought, dreamed or visualized about something and had ideas pop into your mind?

 

 

Most of us do, but we disregard these thoughts because our negative self talk kicks in, telling us - no - don't go there.

 

 

The key to success is to begin to act on those prompts that your mind is giving you.

 

 

Remove the word - IMPOSSIBLE - from your vocabulary.

 

 

How many people thought putting a man on the moon was impossible 200 year ago? Or 100?

 

Start by changing the questions you ask yourself.

 

I asked - how can I find more people for my business?

 

Things showed up for me, like the internet!

 

Instead of listening to everyone else who told me I was crazy, I acted on it.

 

Start a journal of ideas. Every morning, get up and write down 10 ideas in a journal. Don't overthink it.

 

Some you'll never act on, and some you will.

 

Watch for patterns of the same ones showing up. Read through them and determine what resonates with you.

 

 

Then, brainstorm out that idea and make it grow.

 

Ask - how can I make this idea a reality?

 

Develop a morning routine and be consisten with it.

 

 


I used to start with checking email, but I have learned to let that go and to focus, instead, on setting my day out right by focusing on mindset. It's my #1 asset in life and business.

Your Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 175


On today’s show, we are going to cover more on Facebook Prospecting to create new warm market for your Direct Sales business. There are some do's and don'ts.


Check the podcast archives on the blog at JackieUlmer.com for previous episodes if you missed any or are new to the show.


Guess WHAT? My one on one and inner circle programs are LIVE! Are you looking for coaching to be successful in your Network Marketing business? Want to also learn how to generate your own leads online? My Inner Circle Coaching Program may be just what you need. Or, maybe it's one on one coaching.  Learn more about both at  StreetSmartWealth.com/coach


I cover all types of Facebook Prospecting in my Inner circle Coaching program and my Facebook E-book!


Questions come up all of the time about how to sponsor people on facebook. Whether it's people you know or new people you meet, there is very often a large number of people who might be right for your business and your products.

 

Set a daily goal of new number of people to reach out to each day. And, do just that. Reach out. Engage, comment, get to know, look at their profile and develop a relationship before you ever mention your business.

 

If you are doing facebook right with your status updates - sharing a sound mix of personal and business, you may attract them naturally. 

 

Be sure to do a self evaluation of your own profile, and from an objective point of view, ask - Would this interest me?

 

If I knew nothing about this person, would I want to get to know them?

 

Take time, get to know them, show them you are truly interested in them.

 

Couple of DO NOT DO's

 

Don't contact about business when you first meet them.

 

Never send a link without permission.

Your Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 173 and on today’s show, I'm answering Ify's question, who has relocated from Nigeria to Scotland and so her upline is all in another country. She wonders how to build and support her team locally, as well as how to motivate people and find the right people!

Building without upline support

 

People who are motivated and get the vision are going to build the business with or without upline support. Your job as the sponsor is to get people started RIGHT, with a proven roadmap for success.

 

http://jackieulmer.com/how-do-i-find-motivated-people-for-my-network-marketing-business/

 

Beyond that, you can’t do it for them, and you can’t determine when they are going to decide that this is a priority for them.

 

What did your upline do that made you decide you wanted to build a successful business? To be a leader?

 

Everyone who is serious can find/make time in a day to reach out to new contacts each day. These days, with technology, it takes no more than 10-15 minutes to contact 10-15 new people each day.

 

Follow up with those who want to know more - if you are using tools, this won’t take long either - point them to a tool.

 

We do two things in Network Marketing -

 

Share the products and create customers.

 

Share the business and sponsor those who want to build a business.

 

New people don’t need to know all of the details of the compensation plan, or everything about the back office. 

 

Give them way to have immediate success and earn a check.

 

Motivate and inspire yourself, and stay out in front as the leader.

 

Find out a new person’s dream -what do they want from the business?

 

Find out their commitment to it. Get that commitment from them and you’ll know quickly how serious they are.

 

Busy people are the ones who get things done.

 

Help them layout an action plan of steps they will take in the first 24 hours, the first 72 hours, first week, first 30 days and first 90 days.

 

We don’t bug, harass or chase people. Those who are going to do it will do it with or without you.

 

People are not different - My video on this!

 

You are looking for the people who want things similar to what you want and they are there, in every country and every city and town.

 

You can’t do it right to the wrong people or wrong to the right people!

 

As far as getting inactive people started - that saying - It’s easier to give birth than raise the dead is so true.

 

 

Get them started right, stay committed and work with the ones who WANT it, and not the ones just talking about it.

Words That Hold You Back in Network Marketing Business

 

The words we speak are powerful, and you want to pay attention to what you put out there. What we speak becomes our reality.

 

Do you share things like -

 

I am a cancer survivor. I am a victim of child abuse. Or any other qualifiers that set others up to view you in a certain way. I’m certainly not making light of those who have suffered and conquered these things. I just caution you to not keep that as part of “who” you are in the present. Let the past go.

 

Today, I want to focus on the words - I Can’t.

 

As I always say - you can’t or you won’t?

 

Because there is a huge difference.

 

If anyone can do it, so can you? Or in reverse, why could you NOT do it if anyone else can?

 

I saw a sign the other say - Attitude is a Tattoo.

 

When you have a negative attitude or energy surrounding you when you begin to work your business. Stop. Take a step back and shift your attitude.

 

We give off vibrations and you will get back what you give off.

 

Most often when we say we can’t, it’s not really that we can’t. It’s a form of self doubt and lack of belief and a way we let ourselves off the hook.

 

MAC

 

M- Mindset

A - Action

C- Consistency

 

Take at look at these three words and ask yourself - who controls all three of these?

 

When your results aren’t what you want, take a look back at your actions and see what’s there. Are you taking ongoing income producing actions in your business? Are you doing this consistently?

 

And, are you controlling your thoughts, beliefs and mindset?

I’m Not an Expert and I’m Not Sure What to Say on My Blog


Who says we need to be an expert? When we talk to people offline, we are not an expert. And, maybe that is what stumps people?

 

Expert is only about knowing just a little more.

 

We all have gifts, talents and a story to share that will attract others. You have a brand and it is your voice and your story.

 

Be authentic, don’t try to be anyone else. Be the best “You” that you can be.

 

Share your story, share how you are building. Share your excitement, your vision.

 

Be exactly WHO you would be offline. It’s no different online, these are real people at the end of every connection you make online.

 

Others are looking for a way to get out of the corporate world.

 

Give them hope that they can do this, even part time, while working a career. That’s about 90% of the population.

 

Share your challenges, flaws and successes. You can find my struggles all over my blog and where I have shared my story. My struggles of worrying too much about what others think, and so on.

 

Even though you will be writing to your target audience, you will attract a broader audience who can relate to much of what they are sharing.

Your Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 169 and on today’s show, we are going to talk about fear, and the way it stops you in your Network Marketing business, and how to overcome it.

How Fear is Stopping You From Network Marketing Success and How to Overcome it


Fear is natural. Especially for most when it comes to a network marketing business.

 

The mind can not focus on more than 1 thing at a time. Try it out. Try to think of two things at once. You can’t.

 

You can focus on Lack - what you have not achieved yet in your Direct Sales business.

 

Or, you can focus on abundance and gratitude - what you DO have already in your life.

 

Fear diverts your attention to something that does not serve you.

 

Here is a quick short cut - when you feel fear, and are aware of it. Stop, acknowledge that fear and then immediately focus on one thing you are extremely grateful for. Allow that feeling to overtake your whole body and sense of being.

 

Notice the feeling of calm that comes over you. Powerful, isn’t it?

 

Do this every time you feel anxiety, fear, or worry.

 

Practice this affirmation -

 

When I focus on what I want, and I do so with gratitude, all good things come my way.

 

Focus on what you want as much as possible.

 

What do you want?

 

Why do you want it?

 

Where do you feel stuck?

 

Why?

 

How do you want to feel?

 

Focus THERE on how you want toffee and repeat the affirmation -

When I focus on what I want, and I do so with gratitude, all good things come my way.

 

Take 3 deep breaths and feel the calmness settle in.

 

Repeat the affirmation 3 times loudly, 3 times normal, 3 times whispering, and 3 times just moving your lips.

 

Affirmation - When I focus on what I want, and I do so with gratitude, all good things come my way.

 

The unknown is often scary. We feel unsure. We doubt ourselves.

 

Confusion is the last stop on the train to clarity.

 

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

 

Get vibrationally sound and in the feel good place before you call prospects.

 

Think of what this business allows you to do -

 

Share wonderful products.

 

Share your story.

 

Share your passion.

 

Share a wonderful business with huge potential.

 

Step out of something limiting.

 

Over 90% of thoughts are negative. Change your thoughts, change your life!

 

Napoleon Hill, Think and Grow rich talks about the BURNING desire. This is critical. Wishing and hoping won’t make it happen. You know that already, right?

How to Increase Your Warm Market Through Social Media

 

Your Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 168 and today we are going to cover a question from Sam about how to get more Friends, Followers, Likes, Shares and Engagement on Social Media to help you brand yourself and promote your Network Marketing success team!


Guess WHAT? My one on one and inner circle programs are LIVE! Are you looking for coaching to be successful in your Network Marketing business? Want to also learn how to generate your own leads online? My Inner Circle Coaching Program may be just what you need. Or, maybe it's one on one coaching.  Learn more about both at  StreetSmartWealth.com/coach


Check the podcast archives on the blog at JackieUlmer.com for previous episodes if you missed any or are new to the show.


Friends, Followers, Likes, Shares and Engagement on Social Media to Increase Warm Market

 

This is really pretty simple. It’s a process, and you have to get out and market your business.

 

On Social Media, we do the same, and the best way to get engagement is to BE engaging first.

 

Develop a strategy and a plan. You must know what to do and when to do it on a daily/weekly basis to be successful. Write things down. Use a daytime and reminders so you stay current with what to do when.

 

This will get you into a flow of your daily routine. So, you need your social media time incorporated into your day.

 

You must be out there engaging with the people you want to attract.

 

Understand the Facebook algorithms and how they work. You can see up to 300 pieces of content in your newsfeed at a time. You can force more by getting out of your newsfeed, but never assume people are aware of what you are doing because you’ve posted it on Facebook.

 

Sort your friends into lists and check in regularly so you know what your groups are doing on a regular basis. This keeps Facebook feeding you good content ongoing.

 

You’ve got to practice the 80/20 rule - Social, Fun and Engaging 80% of the time, and business only 20% of the time.

 

People are not on Facebook to be sold, but they will buy when it is done right!

 

As you engage with others, you will show up more in their newsfeed, too.

 

Twitter and Instagram run on Hashtags, so you want to understand what hashtags your target audience is looking for and be researching and engaging with people using those same hashtags.

 

Create a relationship with people, which is called creating new warm market, and some will become interested in your business over time.

Balancing Your Brand and Your Company

 

My story is an example of why you want to brand yourself FIRST, and company second.

 

I have two domains - StreetSmartWealth.com and JackieUlmer.com and I’m going to share why I have both and my thoughts around it.

 

I also have been with several companies since I started online, and different types of companies. Telecom, Nutrition, Candles - and as you can imagine, these all have different target audiences, as well as keywords and ways to market.

 

Well, as my story shares, people change, companies change, comp plans change and we do make changes to our companies some times.

 

For me, my interests and passions drive my interests a lot of times, and if I’m going to build a business,s it has to be FUN and something I enjoy.

 

So, bottom line - build your own brand FIRST, and weave information about your company into your marketing strategy and your content strategy.

 

Share generic information that shows you as a leader, and then weave in some stories and content around your company. Just make sure they work together to make sense to your audience.

 

Build out your About Me page in a strong way and solidify yourself as an expert and someone worthy of following and then your company information will naturally find a fit with your audience.

Network Marketing Facts and Endorsements

 

Only a small percentage of people ever achieve financial security, even in retirement.

 

Network Marketing offers a Plan B and more and more people are looking for one.

 

Gen Y, and others are skeptical of the “old rules” - go to school, get a good job and be loyal.

 

But, that Plan B MUST be simple.

 

Amazing how the tools of technology can make it SO much easier.

 

As I shared in Show 165, I can easily reach out to about 10 people in about 10 minutes and get my business in front of people through a quick informative video that tells enough to get the prospect to say YES, or no!

 

Our objective is both customers and Team Partners. Develop a solid customer base and keep in touch. Share new items and do good follow up.

 

We are a commission based business, much like real estate. This Blog Post on Similarities between Real Estate and Network Marketing - Commission Based Sales details some of this.

 

We have expert endorsements -

 

Donald Trump

Robert Kiyosaki

I quote Trump and Kiyosaki because I can reference their endorsements and quotes in their book, Why We Want You to Be Rich.

 

Skills to develop 

 

Confidence - overcome mindset challenges, doubts and fears. ACTION is the one thing that will develop your confidence if you are lacking.

 

Here are some quick tips on Mindset

Develop some assertiveness, mostly with YOURSELF. Get the job done, take action and have the mindset to overcome challenges and obstacles.

 

Some will say no, who you were really counting on. Some will say yes and then do nothing. Some will say yes and then move on!

 

Oh well,, it’s part of life and the business.

 

Technology makes it so much easier to reach out to people.

 

Follow up is one of the biggest challenges we face.

 

Listen to my show about Facebook Messenger about how to use it to make it so much easier to follow up and NOT face what we often perceive as “rejection!”

 

My Sizzle Video - WARNING - contains specific company info, and is designed to give you some ideas for your OWN company.

 

Build it part time on the side, develop a serious income and be free to do what you want.

 

Know the facts, endorsements and know what can be accomplished!

Facebook Messenger for Effective Prospect Inviting

 

One of the biggest challenges faced by network marketers is THE PHONE! That 10 ton gorilla that stares at us; glares at us, and totally freaks us out.

 

We can easily use it for all kinds of other things, and we are friends with it most of the time.

 

But, look at it with the thought of calling someone about our business and HOLY SMOKES - no way.

 

 

So, we now know that texting can be an easy way to reach out to people. It takes the pressure off of the awkward pauses and word stumbling.

 

Facebook Messenger is another great tool for this, and I like to use the talk feature so they can HEAR my voice, and the light tone.

 

This gets interests almost immediately as it is fairly new to most people.

 

The key is to keep it short, use GOOD success language, and don’t say too much. Use “If I, Would You?”

 

Once they say yes, send them a short link or video to explain your business.

What's Stopping You From Taking Your Network Marketing Business Online

 

We get so excited by the thought of sponsoring online. Of building a team outside of our warm market, our city or town, and even our state and country.

 

Yes, a global business run online sounds awesome, doesn't it?

 

So, what's stopping you?

 

I think I know the 3 main things, because they held me back too.

 

1. Confidence - or that feeling of - who's going to listen to me? What do I have to offer? I'm not an expert.

 

Great news, you don't need to be. You have a story to share and an audience waiting to hear it. We all do. We all have things about our journey that others can and will relate to. The beauty of the internet is that as we build a brand and an online presence, we target a specific audience of our people!

 

 

2. Technology! This is a BIG one because we think of web site design and wordpress installation as a foreign language. But, it doesn't need to be. I did it, and you can too!

 

Get my guide - JackieUlmer.com/wpblog

 

It has the exact steps and videos to show you how to do what needs to be done. 

 

Or, outsource it. Contact me for details!

 

3. Content - what will I write about! This is EASY. Start with your day to day business building steps. What do you do each day to grow your business? Share you journey, the good and the bad. People will relate to it and it helps keep you accountable.

 

Beyond that, what are you readin? What events have you attended? What notes do you have piled in a drawer from past events? This is a gold mine of content that will begin to put you out there as a sought after authority.

 

So there, you have it! No reason not to get out there NOW!

When Your Network Marketing Team Disappears

 

What to do when your network marketing team enters the Witness Protection Program. You know, they stop answering calls, unfriend you on Facebook, and go into hiding.

 

They seem to disappear completely. So, what do you do?

 

Don’t Chase them. Don’t text, call or Facebook Message repeatedly.

 

Your job is to stat them, train them, be there to support them, but not to be their boss.

 

Reach out 3 times - and then leave the “ball is in your court” message. Listen, I sense you are really busy and the timing is bad. I’ve left a few messages and have not heard back and the last thing I want to do is bug you. You have my number, give me a call when you are ready to launch. I’ll be here.

 

Then, gone the leader you are. Be in the game. Let them see you in the game on Facebook and Social Media.

 

Don’t let their decision in any way sway you into thinking there is something wrong with you, Network Marketing or your company and products.

 

People have issues and bad timing. It’s just the way it is. It’s not about you.

 

Love them and stay connected on Facebook and Social Media. Don’t be a baby and unfriend them.

 

Never burn a bridge because you NEVER know!

 

You be different.

 

You keep going.

 

There are more out there committed and ready, just like you!

 

Keep sponsoring and building your legacy!

On today’s show, I'm going to talk a little bit about the hardest part of our business in Direct Sales. It's not the perfect script, or explaining the comp plan or any of that!

It's our self talk and the space right between our ears - our Mindset!

 

Check the podcast archives on the blog at JackieUlmer.com for previous episodes if you missed any or are new to the show.


Guess WHAT? My one on one and inner circle programs are LIVE! Are you looking for coaching to be successful in your Network Marketing business?

Or, maybe it's one on one coaching.  Learn more about both at  StreetSmartWealth.com/coach


The hardest part of this business is between your ears. That’s right. It’s what goes on in your brain about your business. It’s the self talk and the fears, doubts and made up stuff that YOU and I both put into the mix.

 

So often we get signed up in a business, we get so excited and we make that list. We make a few calls, we get met with resistance and that’s when we begin to doubt our own decision. And why is that?

 

Why is it that we can put so much emphasis in another’s opinion about what we are doing? And, how much of the time is it really an opinion, as opposed to them just not wanting to get involved at this time?

 

 

Let me ask you something - how much time do you really spend thinking about what others around you are doing? How much time do you think they REALLY spend thinking about you and what you do?

 

We say things like -

 

MLM has a bad reputation and my friends might not approve.

 

 

I can’t call Dave; he’s super successful as an attorney and he would not be interested.

 

Or Jane’s a doctor, so she wouldn’t be interested.

 

Imagine shifting that to - Dave and Jane are two of the most successful people I know; they are exactly the type of people I would like to be working with. When you think about it, what do you have to lose by notifying everyone you know, and doing so using the third party approach.

 

 

Instead, most of us are making a decision for those who we know by assuming they won’t be interested. Think about some of the top people and income earners in your company. What were their professions before network marketing?

 

Let’s get into some things that you can do to create the vision and motivation you want to have success.

 

First, It is so important to set realistic expectations for yourself and your business. One of the biggest mistakes one can make is to set some super high goals that are so far outside of the ballpark that there is just no way to really achieve them. We get excited, and we think we are going to totally clear our calendar and do nothing but our business. Often, we do this at a Super Saturday, or initial training; or at our company convention and then we get back home and the real world and real life sets in. The kids need driven for car pool, the real job may still be there, and you can fill in the blank.

 

So, set some realistic goals and plans for yourself. 

 

Having your goals in writing will help you and your team with what can be known as "buyer's remorse." This often comes up when a new rep gets started, talks to a few people and experience a "shut down" and then wonder if they made the right decision.  It's easy to get bogged down in other people's opinions that can be offered to us by someone who is not really familiar with what we are doing.

 

 

What is your WHY - why did you sign up? Take out your credit card and spend the money? What was the vision you saw? What do you intend to create?

 

There are times for all of us in this business when we feel disappointed; or let down. It's normal, whether you open an ice cream shop or start a network marketing business.

 

Call your sponsor when these happen and listen to their encouragement, as they have been there, too.

 

The primary shut downs are when someone tells us no; someone tells us we are crazy or laughs at our decision; or someone who we really thought was going to be a super star quits before they ever really get started.

 

Here's how you handle it: Get back into action.

 

When someone says no, make one more phone call. When someone laughs use the verbiage above to let them know they aren't entitled to share an opinion with you until they have looked at what you are doing, and then get back into action.

 

And, when someone quits, same thing – get into action and replace them with another. Also keep the lines of communication open because people DO come back!

 

 

Make up a vision and a dream of how you want things to go and focus on that!

 

 

 "What is your vision created of … your past, your present or your future?"

We all have movies we run in our heads, moving pictures and they create the feelings that we feel around the things we do and experience. These are our personal visions. 

 

 

When you think about what you want, do you have a vision in your mind that you play over and over of SEEING yourself getting it, achieving it; mastering it? IF you can answer YES, then you will also see that you are progressing toward it. It may be a slow pace, but your vision is what will move you into action.

 

Remember, your subconscious mind can not distinguish the difference between real and made up. If you tell it you earn $10,000 monthly from your business, it believes it and goes about finding a way to see the job through. When you falter, and go back to seeing yourself as never making more than $100 or so from your business, it believes it and goes about seeing that job through.

The conscious mind does know the difference. IT talks to you all of the time, very often with negative chatter and self opinions and judgments. It keeps us playing small.

 

So, what you need to know is make up your own movie of what you want and play it over and over again. One way that I do this is to create my own mp3, of what I want, how I see my life and my affirmations. I record it in my own voice and burn it to my iphone, and a cd and play it at night, as I fall asleep. I play it over and over again. I see it, I believe it and it has moved me through EVERYTHING that I once perceived as hard in this business.

 

 

Try it and see what happens. See if this business doesn’t just get easy all the way around!

I’m Jackie Ulmer, I am here to paint a picture for you of what is possible, and then to truly help you create a lifestyle business - one you love and that really doesn’t feel like work at all. And, one that provides true freedom - both time and money!

 

Maybe what you are looking for is to build something you love; do work that is meaningful to you, and maybe even change the world! And, you might even be saying - to heck with all of that, just help me fire my boss and get out of this corporate cubicle!

 

 

I have done just that - created a true “pinch me” business - one that I love and that I jump out of bed daily, ready to do more, and reach more people.

 

So, Whatever your reason is, I can help you achieve it.

 

 

I’m so glad our paths have crossed.

 

Most people get started online because what they really want is a better life.

 

Are you ready to make a change?

 

Are you like millions of Americans and others around the world? Have you found the myth of the “American Dream” to be a nightmare in reality? 

 

Do you ever feel trapped? Insignificant? A slave to the 9-to-5 grind of a J-O-B? Tired of being chained to a desk and someone else's schedule?

 

 

One last question. (Okay, two!)  Have you ever tossed and turned in bed at night, pondering the possibilities of having your own home based business? And, better yet, considered the possibilities of using the Internet as a major part of your business from home?

 

Listen in and learn the steps to make it happen for YOU!

When other people speak or act negatively about your Network Marketing business, do you let it slow you down or bring you to a stop?

 

Question from a listener -

 

 

I noticed the times I get off track of my consistency, it is due to a type of conversation that does not go well.  And sometimes it will take me days or a week until I get back on the saddle.  In this case, I felt I was belittled because it sounded like the prospect raised her voice at me in response to what my answer was to her question.  It took me off guard even though I had a helpful voice and offered to get more answers for her after we get off the phone.  What I do is I tend to research in between so that this does not happen again.  Sometimes it will take me some time until I go back to my calls. What do you suggest?  

 

My answer -

 

First, how is it serving you to stay in inaction for long periods because of your "perceived" opinion of someone else?

 

Who controls your thoughts, feelings, beliefs and actions? 

 

Remember Eleanor Roosevelt - no one can make you feel inferior without your permission.

 

Don't allow these types of situations to give you permission to procrastinate out of fear.

 

And, always make sure you have a viable prospect before you spend too much time on it!

 

 

Pay attention to who you give permission to in your life!

Sponsor Professionals into Your Direct Sales Business

 

Recruiting Professionals

 

 

Qualities you are looking for:

 

Outgoing

Upwardly mobile

Enjoy being paid on their own efforts

Take on responsibility

Self motivated

Large network of friends

Are risk tolerant

 

 

Spending too much time targeting the wrong people will be a frustrating waste of time.

 

Bottom line - you are looking for highly motivated, self starters who are serious about taking action to achieve more.

 

 

Typical approach to the business -

 

Make a list

Ask for Referrals

Buy Leads

 

 

What’s missing

 

Degree of dis-satisfaction with current situation

 

Define what YOU are looking for in a business partner and share that

 

 

Let’s make your list. Who are the top 20 influencers you know? Who are the movers and shakers and the people who are successful and get things done. Not the people who you THINK might be interested but the people who have certain qualities we are looking for.

 

A great way to expand this list is through Networking events. These are typically business motivated people and they key to success with this is like anything. Build the relationship first. Then, schedule coffee after the meeting, one to two people a week, so you can share a little of your business and what you are looking for.

 

Find the sizzle to share. Really work to fine tune what you share. Short, succinct and with impact. Paint a vision and leave the hype at home!

 

A good referral for me is - anyone who is tired of the corporate grind, and yet still wants to move in professional markets, no glass ceilings, work with people. Also, we are expanding into Mexico this year so I’m looking for professional contacts in the area who have contacts also in Mexico.

 

People will do what you do and not just what you tell them to do. Focus on talent. People who have a high tolerance for risk are who we are looking for.

 

3 common factors

 

Money motivated and enjoy working on commission

Moderate to high tolerance for risk

Career that involves calling on people or managing people

 

 

categories

 

Real Estate Pros

Mortgage Brokers or Loan Officers

Financial Planners and Stock Brokers

Sales People - pharmaceutical, auto, media,

Insurance agents

Managers and Directors

Retail Sales and Customer Service Reps - a little lower on the scale

Current Network Marketers

 

Change how you think about who you prospect and how you do it. Don’t limit your thinking. Clearly understand and know that only a smaller percentage of the people who you talk to are going to be capable of taking this on. Plan to work large numbers.

 

Make up in numbers what you lack in skill. Once you get the vibe and flow, it is still working the numbers.

 

For every 20 you present to, you’ll enroll 1. Over time, that may change to 1 in 10.

 

For this to work for you, you have to get the mindset and the posture needed.

 

Don’t be perfect, be good, working toward great!

 

You are a very successful, confident and busy person who has something of incredible value to offer the market place.

 

 

 

Do you at all keep your options open in terms of making money outside of what you are currently doing in the ___ profession?

 

 

Why go after real estate agents vs burger flippers?

 

Sells for a living vs flip burgers

calls on people - people come to you - non social

works independently - punches in and out

works for commissions - makes minimum wage

Risk taker - no risk

You're listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show number 156!

 

On today’s show, I’m going to answer a question that Chanae asked me and cover a common challenge that can happen with well meaning sponsors - how to be a sponsor and not a boss to your team. Sometimes, in our own quest for recognition and achievement, we can trounce all over our team. Let’s avoid that!

 

Check the podcast archives on the blog at JackieUlmer.com for previous episodes if you missed any or are new to the show.

 


Guess WHAT? My one on one and inner circle programs are LIVE! Are you looking for coaching to be successful in your Network Marketing business? Want to also learn how to generate your own leads online? My Inner Circle Coaching Program may be just what you need. Or, maybe it's one on one coaching.  Learn more about both at  StreetSmartWealth.com/coach


Are you Being a Sponsor or a Boss

 

Here is Chanae’s question to me -

 

Help! I am being overwhelmed by my sponsor and it’s frustrating me. I’m not sure how to handle it because we are friends, and I believe she means well, but I feel she is pushing me and it’s making me feel bad.

 

GREAT question Chanae and one I am sure many people have. When I dug i a little deeper, I found out from Chanae that part of what is happening is a constant conversation about when she is going to reach the next promotion level in the company. OF course, we often know that this means the sponsor also gets promoted or recognition and so on.

 

So, what is the role of the sponsor, really? And, what things should be avoided?

 

1. Get the new person started and trained. Find out goals, time available, launch plan and COMMUNICATE about how to best work together. Ask - how can I best support you? What encourages you? How do you want to hear from me? And so on. Communication is KEY!

 

2. Be there, especially in the beginning to answer questions and assist in helping new person find where to seek answers. Don’t do it all for them.

 

3. Be a cheerleader and encourager.

 

And, really, that’s about it. Being a boss to your team is no where in the description.

 

What are those things that should be avoided?

 

1. Asking them what actions they are taking, unless they have specifically asked for coaching.

 

2. Telling them what to do.

 

3. Asking constantly about promotions. Good language can help with this and again, it’s in the communication of it - do you have a goal for the next promotion you want to achieve? How might I best support you with this?

 

4. Pushing, in any way. You can sell someone into the business, but you can never sell them on working the business. Make opportunities available to work together.

 

I do this with my team with local meetings, and opportunities to get together and network and build - events, networking, expos, coffee shop hangouts and so on.

 

As the sponsor, be in action yourself and that is the best way to inspire a team. You can’t motivate another person. But you sure can de-motivate them by constantly hanging that next promotion over their head.

 

Trust me - THEY know what needs to be done, they want it worse than you do, and you aren’t helping by constantly talking about it as if it’s something they control. The first few promotions, they can control. But most after that are about a team and volume.

 

Unless you are promoting front loading and buy ins, and I hope not, step back. Go easy.

 

Be a friend and someone to be counted on, not a fire breathing boss. This is an independent business. Never forget that.

It can be very tempting to go after what I call - Low Hanging Fruit - in Direct Sales and Network Marketing. It seems like it will be the easy route. On today’s show, I’m going to cover what that is, and why it is not the best strategy for your business.

 

Spoiler Alert - I’m gonna get real, raw and down in the trenches about a recent experience I had and why it shines such a negative light on our profession.

 

Check the podcast archives on the blog at JackieUlmer.com for previous episodes if you missed any or are new to the show.

Stop Picking From the Low Hanging Fruit in Direct Sales

 

What the heck is low hanging fruit? And particularly in Direct Sales?

 

Urban dictionary defines it as - Targets or goals which are easily achievable and which do not require a lot of effort.

 

I’m going to talk about two types of low hanging fruit in Network Marketing -

 

Those already involved in Direct Sales.

 

Those on our list who are easier to talk to because we see them in a slightly lesser light, of some kind.

 

 

Starting with those already in Direct Sales.

 

I got an interesting phone call last Sunday from a VERY excited distributor with another company who had just returned from her company convention.

 

She barely knows me. A few fleeting hellos at two networking/ lead events locally. I know nothing about her of a personal nature, nor does she of me. But she does know that I am already in a direct sales company.

 

Her phone message was her going on and on about how excited she was about the news coming from convention and why she needed to get this information in front of me. 

 

We have never had a conversation about my experience in Direct Sales, if I’m open and looking or anything, and quite frankly, I found the message annoying and an intrusion.

 

That was followed up by a text message on Tuesday with an invitation to her home for a business overview of the company and updates. Closing message - Can I count on you to come? Leave your wallet at home, and bring a friend. Her website and name.

 

Ugh - bad news for our profession and no wonder some people think badly about us.

 

I waited 24 hours, so I didn’t fire back and wish I had been nicer, and said - you know I am with XYZ company, right?

 

And she said - Yes, I know, but I have some explosive info. I know that you would be interested.

 

Really? You KNOW that about me? We’ve said hello and shared a few cordial comments and yet YOU know me better than I know me?

 

And, what’s with the word explosive? If your home is exploding, I don’t want to be there.

 

Now, I know we teach people to contact EVERYONE we know.

 

And, if you’ve listened to me at all, you know that I am ALL about Success Language, respecting your prospect and respecting the profession.

 

She DOES not know me. She clearly does not know that I have already had a product experience with her company that was not positive. That doesn’t mean the product is bad, but it had a bad reaction for me. And, she clearly does not know my criteria list for choosing a company; or what 2014 involved for me and my own company change.

 

Had she taken the time to get to know me first, I could saved her time, and yet possibly been a referral partner for her.

 

Now, I just feel like she represents our profession badly.

 

Here’s the thing - I can’t really see the All State Insurance agent calling a happily employed State Farm Agent and saying - You’ve GOT to come over to us. We are better and I KNOW you will like it here better.

 

I don’t know, maybe that happens. It does in sports, and maybe I am just not being a smart business person.

 

BUT - there is a right way and a wrong way to network your opportunity and products with others in direct sales. I have LOTS of customers for my products who are building other businesses, and I don’t try to bring them on board.

 

Instead, I maintain a solid relationship with them; I appreciate their referrals and their business and who knows where that path may lead.

 

I have had several encounters lately with women in companies where they are struggling to determine if they are with the right company. Both of them have seen the success I am having and they know I’m here local and could be a great sponsor. I could take advantage of that, and use seductive language to try to move them over to me. But I won’t.

 

I’m here, they are working through it. The best thing for me to do is be a friend, a support system and leave them to work through the tough questions. If they decide a change is in order, I feel confident they will at least evaluate me and my company, since they are both customers of mine.

 

And, should they decide to partner with me, it will be a win win and I won’t feel sleazy and unethical. It will be totally their decision!

 

So, why is this low hanging fruit?

 

In terms of the person who called me, without knowing me, really, she called me because I am already involved in Network Marketing and she knew she would not have to overcome that objection. My guess is, she is stuck in a comfort zone and struggles a bit with talking to people. So, she reached out to the EASY list, and she did so by text. I will give her credit for first making the phone call…on a Sunday. Which annoyed me a bit too, and made me re-think calling people, especially those who you don’t have a close relationship with on a Sunday.

 

I would love your thoughts and feedback.

 

So, the deal on low hanging fruit of this type is that it is not a solid strategy for long term success.

 

It’s the easy route, and I think you can see why. No risk.

 

And, it doesn’t bode well for our profession. Or, your company because it can leave a very bad taste in the mouth of others for both you and your company.

 

Don’t build your strategy around cross recruiting. Yes, people change companies all of the time, and very often for their own reasons. Build a good relationship ahead of time and they may choose you!

 

Now, here is low hanging fruit scenario #2 - Those on our list who are easier to talk to because we see them in a slightly lesser light, of some kind.

 

I don’t mean they are lesser people. Please hear that loud and clear.

 

Maybe they struggle financially and so we think they NEED it. These people can be easier to talk to.

 

They company hop - not a good long term strategy either. They’ll hop right away from you, too, so don’t kid yourself.

 

Here’s the bottom line - we want more than people who can just fog a mirror. We want players, do-ers, dreamers, and not just talkers or people who will pull out their credit card. Although we don’t want people who can pull out their credit card.

 

Reach for the fruit at the top of the trees and elevate yourself to the top!

We all have a comfort zone - that place where we go just to the edge of, and then shrink back because we fear that it will be painful to move beyond the borders; to stretch and to grow. Why not just stay where it is warm and comfy, right? Well, here is the thing, everything fabulous is right beyond those self imposed limitations! On today's show, I'm going to share some of my own self imposed limitations; how I was staying stuck in my own comfort zone and what happened when I pushed beyond it!

What is Your Comfort Zone, Are You Stuck in It, and What to Do About it?

 

What does that mean and how important is it?

 

I’ve mentioned 2014 was a year of searching, and 2015 has been a year of answers and growth so far.

 

Pay attention to what you resist - wisdom offered to me by one of my early mentors. Of course, I did not want to hear that at the time.

 

I have always had a huge resistance to in Home Business Presentations, Launches and Home parties. It stemmed from a lot of different things

 

In home presentations from Excel days, my first company. I had small children and it was just nerve wracking! And, I didn't even want to contact my warm market then, so how was I supposed to invite them to my home for a "meeting" of one of THOSE THINGS?!?!?!

 

Party Plan - I have never really worked a party plan business, although I was with a company that should have been a party plan, and in order to better train my team, I brought in a great party plan trainer; took the training myself, along with fabulous notes, but never acted on it.

 

I had some thoughts about “sales” and my mindset around it was not good.

 

But, with my new business launch, I set some serious goals, and I didn't want to just build online. I wanted to grow a local team and create the synergy that goes with that, and the faster growth!

 

So, I had to get real and serious. I laid out a plan. I set some intentions and affirmations.

 

I began seriously Networking offline, 3-5 events a week and started retailing right out of my purse.

 

I learned to ASK for the sale.

 

I reached out for Facebook parties - easy right?

 

I put a "Skin-it" decal on my laptop and started setting up shop at the coffee shop. Why? Well, I had to tell myself - "Get out of your home, no one who wants your products is there."

 

I’ve made sales!

 

I developed a crazy pitch - I sell mascara on Facebook. I offer crack for your lips and lashes.

 

I started wearing a name tag.

 

And, I did my first home party.

 

I laid it out. I relaxed. I took a deep breath. I made it fun, conversational and just shared from my heart and my passion about the products.

 

I sold $856 of product!!!! Me, the non party girl!!!

 

Following that high, I sold another $170 out and about the next day, and $30 from my website.

 

And, then $75 at a job and career fair the next day!

 

Dang, I'm unstoppable!

 

So, what does this mean for you?

 

Where are you resisting? What are your fears? What are they based on?

 

Are they serving you?

 

Who do you know who is doing what you are resisting and having success?

 

What areas do you want to change?

 

What will it take for you to step out of your comfort zone?

 

Are you limited by your beliefs, or your vision? A belief can be changed when the vision is big.

 

I have a goal - to build a VERY large local team; to dominate my area in my business; to create the bonding and synergy that happens with a local team that doesn’t quite measure up online.

 

To expand into Mexico when the company launches there and have a massive, fun, exciting, dynamic, rocking team!

 

To do that, I must get my business in front of more people locally and so the time was right and I am ready to bust through any limiting beliefs and that darn comfort zone.

We all have those types we run across in our business - the Bashers, the Negative Nellies, and so on. Sometimes, they are family members and good friends.

 

 

No worries - you don't need anyone person, you just need the RIGHT people and these people are NOT the right people!

 

Questions for you -

 

Is this REALLY a viable prospect or just someone who doesn't know how to say no. 

 

Sometimes, people think they are doing you a favor by dragging things along when really, a yes or no will be JUST fine!

 

Just say - Joe, I appreciate your time, is this something you are interested in and have a geniune concern about, or are you just afraid to tell me NO because you think I can't handle it. It's totally cool, I get that my business and my products are not for everyone and that is okay for me!

 

I don't want to drag or convince ANYONE, especially you.

 

Are you just trying to say no?

 

 

Is this someone you'll have to drag not only across the finish line, but also to the START line?

 

Yuck, who wants to do that?

 

You are not looking for just anyone who can fog a mirror! You are looking for people with NO excuses; who are hungry and ready.

When you hear any of these –

I don’t want to talk to anyone I know.

I don’t have any money to invest.

I don’t like Facebook or other Social Media sites.

I don’t have time….

 

Do the “take away” and say no first.

“Thanks for your time, NAME, and I get that this is not right for you. It’s not for everyone and that is okay. I’m looking for people who are ready to live more of LIFE and make a change. IF you run across anyone who fits this description, please do let me know!”

 

Sometimes, we just get a bad vibe about someone and the best thing we can do is be true to that!

 

ACTION STEPS

 

Learn how to ask the question - are you trying to say no?

Develop the language you are going to use to say no first and disqualify the wrong people.

Stay empowered and move on!

Affirmations for Direct Sales Success - how to move from what you want to actually getting it by programming your mind to commit to the daily actions needed, and back it up with getting into the feeling and emotional state needed to achieve it!

 

 

 

Affirmations are used to articulate and define your ideal outcome or experience in any given area you want. The goal is to re-program your subconscious mind to live in alignment with those goals and desires you want.

 

Many people struggle with this and start, then stop, or feel foolish, or unsure.

 

So, let’s talk about how to create effective affirmations.

 

Some people struggle because they don’t believe what they are saying. We are taught to use the present tense. This is good, but there can be a disconnect.

 

Here is why this is ineffective - when you say - I’m a multi million dollar income earner, or I earn a specific amount that is often way out there for is.

 

They are taught to be I am statements. Then say it over and over again. And, pretty soon it will happen. Have you heard this?

 

But, as an intelligent human being, you know you are not making multi millions and your conscious mind says - BS - liar liar pants on fire, right?

 

Have you ever felt that way?

Kind of like we are trying to lie our way to success. And, we feel rotten about that, right?

 

Let’s write and recite them in a way that aligns with reality for us.

Let’s affirm what we plan to do in a different way.

 

Try this. Get a pen and write this down.

 

Show notes - http://JackieUlmer.com/152 to resist and find this formula, especially if you are driving or listening while out and about.

 

Here is the formula -

 

I, NAME, am committed to ACTIVITY, FREQUENCY, so that I can GOAL/Desired Outcome/Result, by TARGET DATE.

 

I, Jackie Ulmer, am committed to contacting 10 new people a day about my business so that I become a triple star fleet commander by convention of 2015. This allows me to leave my job, fund my mission, live a life of freedom and peace.

 

I focus on setting intentions, vs goals that are outside of my control.

 

Then, as part of your affirmations, talk in the present tense about how that makes you feel.

 

As a triple start fleet commander, I feel empowered, accomplished, successful, abundant, joyful, achieving, peaceful, happy.

 

I am surrounded by positive people who share my goals and dreams.

 

I attract positive, self motivated leaders into my business. Every day, God puts the right people onto my path and I easily start a conversation and achieve my intended result of sharing my business with the key people who join me or connect me with the right people.

 

I’m going to share an example of my own -

 

Mexico launch of my company.

 

I joyfully expand my business locally into the hispanic market, and connect with the right people to connect me to others in Mexico. We are building a solid foundation of success, and are empowering men and women on both sides of the border to create more fun, abundance and financial security in their lives.

 

So, what I do is record my affirmations in an mp3 format, then download them to a CD or my phone and listen to them at night before I fall off to sleep, as I am driving, and ANY time I begin to feel doubt or fear.

 

So, when you practice your affirmations regularly, you will see the results you want show up. You will feel inspired to take the necessary actions. The right people will position themselves in your path.

 

Coach yourself when you feel doubtful - there is nothing to fear of you just take the action steps needed. The universe will align the right things that you need to achieve your goals.

 

What would you say to someone else if they told you they were afraid? How would you coach them? Use that same language on yourself.

 

Do the thing you are afraid of.

 

Sample Affirmations -

 

I am worthy and deserving of success. I am capable of achieving any level of success that I desire. I am committed to becoming the person I need and want to be.

 

I attract the success I desire. I attract the people who fit perfectly with my business. I am committed to my goals.

 

I settle for nothing but the best in my life and my business. I am worthy, I am deserving and there is plenty of abundance in the world to go around for everyone. I am included in that. 

 

I seek to achieve my highest good and also contribute to the good of others.

 

I am an inspiration to others as well as myself as I take action each day and easily achieve my goals.

 

Night Time Affirmations

 

I am pleased with my day as I took the needed actions to reach my goals. I am prepared for tomorrow and know what steps I’ll be taking in my business.

 

As I sleep, I know my mind is being conditioned for more success and tomorrow is lining up to beautifully meet my goals and expectations.

 

I sleep peacefully and awake well rested, ready to explode my day, taking my business to even higher levels of success.

 

Okay, so there you have some samples. You can do this for business, relationships, fitness and health, anything really.

 

Have fun, get it recorded in your own voice and watch what happens.

 

What is one of your favorite affirmations? I would love to hear it.

 

 

Share.

On today’s show, I'm going to share my results after 90 days in my new Direct Sales skincare and makeup business. What a FUN time it has been!

My 90 Day New Direct Sales Business Launch Results.

 

You may not find these results inspiring if you are expecting me to report that I made a million bucks that first 90 days; or that I broke huge records.

 

I did really, well, and am proud of what I accomplished. And, more than anything, I have had a total blast sharing my excitement and enthusiasm about this new venture; what went into my decision and my criteria for selecting a company. The fun of the sizzle product and immediate retail sales.

 

And, the team I started - 21 personally enrolled in the US, Canada and the United Kingdom; 3 promotions and 4 on the team getting promotions; sponsoring a 12 year old who then sponsored her aunt into the business, and over $4000 in Personal Retail Sales.

 

Here are those results:

 

Sponsored 21 personally and grew in depth on the team.

 

Had over $4000 in Personal Retail Sales

 

Made 3 promotions, and helped 4 on the team also get promoted.

 

Expanded into not just the US, but also Canada and the United Kingdom.

 

Signed up a 12 year old entrepreneur as a result of NOT editing my list and reaching out to a male friend in Network Marketing just to share what I am doing in my business life.

 

Learned to easily retail on the spot and LOVE doing it!

 

And, as much as anything, I am having an absolute total blast building this new company!

 

What I did:

 

Made my list - actually wrote it down and took about 3 hours to do so. Went through my cell phone, email addresses, Christmas Card list, people from my past - airlines, cities I've lived in, Childhood friends, and then moved on to Social Media.

 

Started contacting and did a lot of it ny private Facebook Messaging.

 

Used the 3rd party approach that I coach on in my Scripts -

 

StreetSmartScripts.com

 

Shared my excitement and enthusiasn and detached from the outcome.

 

Then, I took things offline and found new friends and networking events to plug into and meet people and share my products and my business through the products.

 

Stayed very consistent and didn't worry about who did and who didn't; just kept working my business plan.

 

Follow up - I know the importance of this and kept at it!

 

And I worked the Law of Numbers which converted to Law of Averages.

 

Built my business skill set and focused on Success Language!

I am regularly asked the question - should I create a facebook business page or just use my personal profile for my Direct Sales business, and if I do make one, how do I combine the two so they work together for the best exposure? We will cover that on today's show!


Check the podcast archives on the blog at JackieUlmer.com for previous episodes if you missed any or are new to the show.


Guess WHAT? My one on one and inner circle programs are LIVE! Are you looking for coaching to be successful in your Network Marketing business? Want to also learn how to generate your own leads online? My Inner Circle Coaching Program may be just what you need. Or, maybe it's one on one coaching.  Learn more about both at  StreetSmartWealth.com/coach


Should I use a Facebook Business Page or my Personal Profile for my Direct Sales Business

 

IT's an ongoing debate, whether to use a business page or your personal profile to conduct business on Facebook. In this training, I'm going to share the pros and cons of both, and how to combine the two for maximum reach!

We've covered this already, but it bears repeating.

When you take your business online (in addition to your offline, in-person networking), you extend your reach from just the people in your warm market – your friends and family, their friends and those you meet while out and about – to the billions of people online.

When you work your warm market, you typically need to reach out to people, when you work online, you can attract people to you.

I developed a true "pinch me" business when I would wake up, and find new leads and contacts from people who contacted me to ask about my business and product line.


And, I have met some of my very best friends this way!

On Facebook there are different types of entities – people (personal profiles), groups (open or closed groups of people) and pages (used by businesses, charities, celebrities, and so on).

So, you have a personal Timeline, why not have a Facebook business timeline, too, right? Here is why a business Facebook timeline is so important. Not to be techie, but Facebook is basically a closed system that is not indexed by Google. Facebook Business Timelines ARE indexed by Google though.  This just basically means that people can find your Facebook business timeline in Google!

 

You have 3 opportunities to connect with people - your friends, your followers and your business page followers.

 

When I started on Facebook, business pages did not exist so I learned how to carefully keep my business alive on facebook, and yet in the background so as not to offend those who did not want to know about it.

And, I view it like I do my real estate friends. Each week, many of my friends in real estate post details about their opn houses they are hosting. It's not at all offensive to me and they aren't blatant about WHY it's the best house ever and why I should buy it.

Think about this as you create your own business info that you gently share.

Remember the 80/20 rule and the concept of Facebook being like Cheers, the TV show from the 90s, where everyone gathered in a social pub after work!

There was talk about the wife, the kids, vacation, and jobs. Keep your life colorful, interesting and entertwine all aspects together to showcase who you are - not all business and not all play. 

 

So, why use a Facebook business page? Here are some top reasons for why to use a Facebook Business Page:

  1. It is against Facebook’s Terms of Service to use a personal page for business purposes. They could shut down your account. You can be generic about what you do, and I recommend this, but if you are continually pumping your business info out, you could get slapped! Big Time!
  2. It’s annoying to friends and family to constantly see business ads on your personal page. Most people view this as spam.
  3. When you post business content to your personal profile, people may unfriend you, block your feed, and possibly report your posts as spam.
  4. If enough people report you, you may land in Facebook “jail”. Ouch, this is no fun, and there are a number of companies who have been blocked due to too many people spamming links. IF your company is blocked, and you have references to your company name on your profile, it can also get blocked.
  5. Using both a business page and a personal profile gives you two “voices” to speak to your customers and potential team partners. Two voices are better than one.
  6. A business page is open to attract anyone, not just friends and family and their friends (your warm market).
  7. A personal profile can only have 5000 friends, a facebook page can have millions of fans.
  8. With a business page, you can run targeted ads to build your fanbase and attract people who are interested in your product and opportunity. (The targeting of these ads is really important. More on that later.)
  9. When you build your fan base, your ordinary posts can be seen by hundreds or thousand of people every day.
  10. When you’ve built your fan page, and your audience and post engaging content regularly, people will come to YOU asking about your product and opportunity. People reach out to me every day. Some days, a post will catch people’s hearts and go viral, and I’ll see reach in in the ten thousands and dozens and dozens of people will reach out.

Now creating a fan page, learning to place ads and post engaging content does take a bit to learn. It takes about 10 minutes to create a page, and about an hour once a week to set up and "pre post" a week’s worth of posts. 

And just like Network Marketing it may take a few months of sustained effort, a little bit every day, to build momentum. But if you are planning to be in this business in a few months anyway, why not also plan to have people coming to you? There is a time line to success!

I know people who say they don’t want to learn new things, or that they tried an ad one day and it didn’t work for them. There is a trick to it. You have to put some thought into who you want to attract. You need to target your like ads specifically to them and post content to engage them. And you need to talk to them, not in your bullhorn voice, but your talking to your best friend conversational voice AND you need to put your heart into it. That is all.

 

When you post to your business page, you have the option to share that post from your personal profile and this is one way the two entities can work well together. You are seen as just SHARING content and not originating it.

And, you never know who else will see it and share it, expanding your reach even further!

Don't get discouraged if if takes a little bit of time

 

Use Hashtags

 

Be consistent in posting value, including your business link

 

Like your own page from your personal profile and share some of the business content from time to time, and this is how you get the most bang for your buck.

 

 

My Two primary Facebook Business Pages

 

StreetSmartWealth on Facebook - my generic page

 

FunFabLashes.com - my business specific page

 

 

ACTION STEPS

 

Start your page - what's your strategy?

 

Upload photos and posts before you start inviting

 

Be consistent

Should I Buy Business Opportunity Leads for my Direct Sales Business

 

How do I work with these leads?

 

It can be tempting to think that your business is going to zoom off the charts when you simply start calling and sponsoring those people who have responded asking for details on a business from home.

 

Sadly, many are bogus, nothing more than tire kickers and will say they never requested information.

 

Most are not prepared to take action at the time they request more information. So, understand that it is a long term commitment and time process.

 

IT's key to know that you must work big numbers and have a system for taking them through the process.

 

Call, text and then email.

 

I have someone who opted in on my website, knows that it's me, expressed EXTREME interest in getting out of a job she hates, and yet I can not even get her to take 10 minutes to take a look. So, people have more is a wishing, wanting mentality than a take action mentality.

 

Steps you want to have in place.

 

Take to a simple lead capture page - JackieUlmer.com/leadpages

Have an optin in so that you can begin the drip process - JackieUlmer.com/ar

Now you have the chance to build on know, like and trust which is critical to success! Having them in your own database instead of one that may come with your lead program so that should you leave that system, you still own the database and can drip information on them.

 

Are there good lead sources -  here is one I use

JackieUlmer.com/leadsnow

 

 

ACTION STEPS

 

1. Get your system set up

 

2. Know how you are going to guide them through learning more.

 

3. Understand the long term process.

How do you handle it when a team member leaves your business for another? Or companies make changes?Do you keep your cool or do you burn bridges? We are going to cover that topic in today’s show!

I’ve reopened my one on one Direct Sales coaching program , along with my DO It Yourself Inner Circle Coaching and you can learn more over at StreetSmartWealth.com/coach

 

I would love to help you break through the barriers and have the success you want in Direct Sales.

 

Why It’s Never a Good Idea to Burn Bridges

 

 

It's never a good idea to burn bridges with people and Direct Sales is no different. Sometimes, conflict can be created when people change companies; stop working; or in some way disappoint. Harsh words and actions can come back to bite you later.

 

Stay calm, cool and collected and wish others the best, because after all, it's important that they find the right fit for themselves. If you keep the door open, they may return!

 

Here are a few things that can happen to cause a shift:

 

People Leave.

 

Leaders Leave and take other with them.

 

Companies change compensation plans.

 

When these things happen, tempers flare and it can seem like the right thing to lash out and bad mouth others. Perhaps you and your company are being bad mouthed.

 

But, as hard as it is, it is important to keep your cool, and use my “24 hour rule” before acting, or reacting to any situation.

 

Take a step back, think about things and wait to respond to anything until 24 hours has passed. You may be surprised at how differently you feel.


Today’s review shout out goes to my Friend George Fourie, from down under in Australia who writes - Jackie is the ultimate innovator. I subscribe to many business podcasts but couldn’t find anything great that focused on our industry. Until now. About 7 years ago I was searching the internet, as you do, to find more information about the network marketing professoin. All roads lead to Jackie’s websites. Not sure which episode it was where you mentioned that you don’t know SEO Jackie but that ain’t the truth. unless you’re just a natural. Jackie gives away more pure gold in this podcast that you can take straight to the bank. The top notch production keeps you even more engaged. Well done Jackie, keep on sharing the value!

 

Thanks George!

Do you need a blog for your direct sales business and will it really work for your type of business? This is a question that Mike asked me about his Weight Loss Network Marketing business and program. Answers to this on today's show!

 

 

I was shocked at the question since weight loss is still one of the most widely researched topics online, and probably always will be as people focus on looking and feeling better....at least for awhile!

 

Your blog is the hub pf the universe for your business.

 

Not your company site. And, not your Facebook Page, although both of these have a strong purpose in your overall online strategy.

 

Think of the awesome content you can create and the before and after photos you can share.

 

Weight loss keywords are awesome and as I mentioned, highly researched all of the time. People are looking for this information.

 

And, when you create your own content, you have valuable information to share on Social Media to drive traffic back to your blog and your list!

 

It establishes you as an authority!

 

ACTION STEPS

 

Get my Free Blog Guide - http://JackieUlmer.com/wpblog

 

Get your Domain and hosting set up!

 

Watch the videos I've created.

 

Remember you can figure ANYTHING out, just get it started!

 

ITunes Shout out -

 

 

Shout out to Norm Bryson Canada, who writes - I have listened to many of Jackie’s Podcasts starting this past summer and I have found her style easy to listen to, always informative and reassuring that average people can create above average incomes. She constantly says thing that I am thinking like we just had a conversation before she records her podcast. Keep up the awesome work!

Ever wonder how to build a global business with your Direct Sales Network Marketing company without having to know someone there; travel to that country and spend a month there beating the streets? We cover this in today's show!

 

Now, don’t forget that I provide complete training audios and worksheets on how to build a successful network marketing business both online and offline in my inner circle coaching program.

 

JackieUlmer.com/coach

 


How to Build a Global Direct Sales Business

 

Start with your own warm market list and ask - who do you know? GREAT chance to go back to those who you have previously talked to and see if things have changed, and do so with a 3rd party approach.

 

Then, think of offline networking groups you belong to. Share that your company is expanding! Drop/Blitz cards, your 30 second commercial and so on!

 

Other business locally that may be tied - restaurants, bars, chambers of commerce, stores and other businesses.

 

Think of local Chambers of Commerce and businesses that are geared toward these ethnic and global groups.

 

Social Media - my favorite way to reach out to a specific number of people each day to create curiosity and build new warm market!

Facebook and Linked in, even Meetup - SEARCH for people and groups in these countries that match what you are looking for!

 

 

Don't forget - http://JackieUlmer.com/fbforbiz - my ebook on how to use Facebook effectively to sponsor!

 

ACTION STEPS


Who do you know? Go back to your list.

 

Who can you network with offline in business groups?

 

Check out Social Media.

 

Reach out to a set number of people each day in these countries!

How to invite prospects to take a look at your Direct Sales and Network Marketing business. Master this gateway skill and you will be successful.

Inviting is one of the most important gateway skills you must learn and master to be successful in your Direct Sales business.

 

 

If you are here and looking for the right Direct Sales company, I would love to talk with you. Go to WorkWithJackie.com and let’s talk.

 

 

How to Invite Prospects to Take a Look at Your Business.

 

Have a plan; know every steps in the process. Don’t wing it and leave it to chance.

 

If you are prepared, you can easily impart knowledge and interest with the words you share.

 

Stay out of sales mode. You aren’t selling here, your goal is to get them to take a look.

 

Have a basic script without sounding scripted.

 

Write it out, practice it, put into bullet points and become a master at communicating what you do.

 

Use tools - don’t try to explain it.

 

Don’t use a tool that goes so far into details that it overwhelms them.

 

See the invitation by paying attention to cues offline and by what is shared on social media.

 

Honor what they are currently doing and be respectful if they say know. Don’t burn bridges and don’t offend with comments like - 

 

I’m going to need someone to mow my grass and clean my house, and so on.

 

Share success stories casually as you talk with people.

 

When out networking, share exactly what you do to make money - don’t be sketchy. Let them know.

 

Develop your own success story to share, and model in any way that you can how it works.

 

Send thank you cards for those who look and even those who say know. Stay top of mind!

 

 

ACTION STEPS

 

Plan for Success; know your process.

 

Write out your scripts and practice.

 

Know the tools you will use.

 

Learn how to seed your invitation; don’t just pounce, learn to casually share stories that relate to what they are sharing.

 

Ask for referrals.

 

 

Keep in touch.

I was so sad to hear of Network Marketing Legend Mark Yarnell's passing on March 4th, 2015. He touched my life and helped develop my skills and knowledge of how to be successful in Network Marketing. His phrase - Impression Management - which is handling how you feel about what others may say and think about your involvement in Network Marketing stands out strong for me.

I had the honor of interviewing him last year, and wanted to re-broadcast that show in case you missed it. Access the full transcript here.

Mark Yarnell Tribute

Mark Yarnell, Network Marketing professional and legend passed away March 4, leaving a huge legacy and deep void in network marketing. Here is my interview of him from last year, full of fun and nuggets of wisdom as only Mark Yarnell can deliver.

 

What other's are saying -

Stacy Todd Clark, on Facebook - Mark was one of the most generous people I knew. He taught to me to never judge a person asking for money. He would say if they are a "fake" that was between them and their maker. That I should give what my heart felt and to never second guess it.

One day we were walking in downtown Reno and a man who was definitely tipsy asked Mark for money, he reached in his pocket and gave the man a $20 bill. I was surprised and said Mark he is just going to spend it on booze. Mark smiled that beautiful smile of his and said even a drunk deserves a Chivas Regal now and then.


Mark Walmsley, on Facebook - Mark Yarnell, the author of "Your First Year In Network Marketing" passed yesterday. He was a true legend of the industry and his book is an absolute must read for everyone in this amazing profession. I appreciate his phone call when he had read my book, his words of support and encouragement meant a lot to me. Thoughts and Prayers to his family and friends.

And, there are hundreds of others. Listen in to hear some of Mark's great insights into our profession of Network Marketing.

 Thank you, Mark, for the gifts you gave to all of us. You will be greatly missed.

Do you suffer from Super Hero Syndrome in Your Network Marketing Direct Sales Business? Feeling like you have to do it all - motivate, lead, be responsible for the success and failure of others? You might be suffering from Super Hero Syndrome, especially if you like the way you look in tights! More on today's show!

 

 

Now, don’t forget that I provide complete training audios and worksheets on thow to build a successful network marketing business both online and offline in my inner circle coaching program.

 

 

JackieUlmer.com/coach



How to Avoid Syper Hero Syndrome in Network Marketing

 

Do you like the way you look in tights? Now, that sounds like a joke, and it kind of is, but I want you to think about Super Man, Super Woman, Super Hero syndrome and think about whether you might be suffering from it.

 

This typically happens once you have a team growing and you have some momentum going!

 

Do you think you can save the world in Network Marketing?

 

Do you try to do it all?

 

Do you feel responsible for the success of everyone on your team? And, do you take on the responsibility of their failures?

 

Let people know in that very first phone call you have with them once they have joined that THEY are the ones responsible for their own success or failure.

 

Congratulate them on making a decision and joining the team, and you will be there to be their best cheerleader, but success or failure is based solely on their actions in their own business.

 

Be clear right up front.

 

You can't motivate another to work the business, you can only inspire.

 

You can, however, sell people into joining. That's called a "paid no!" But "joining" is not the same as building.

 

I made some big mistakes in my early network marketing career by running meetings and thinking I was the only one who could do a presentation "the right way!" We created a team where others thought they were not capable of doing the business themselves.

 

Spend time where it is earned...where it is deserved...with the ones who are actually building a business. Doing the daily action steps.

 

Remember, it's okay to set boundaries around your business and your time. Don't fear that others will quit if you are not there at their beck and call. True builders are doing this for themselves and by themselves. Your role really doesn't have a lot to do with anything!

 

 

ACTION STEPS

 

Determine if there are places in your business where you have adopted super hero syndrome? Taking on too much responsibility and feeling like you need to motivate?

 

Are you spending time with those who earn it?

 

Build a business that reflects YOUR values and creates a lifestyle you love.

Should I buy from and support other Direct Sales and Network Marketing business owners? This is a great question and we will cover all aspects of it on today's show.


We’ve spent the last few shows going through how to launch a business, where I am sharing with you exactly the steps I am taking to grow a business from start to finish.

Should I buy from and support other Direct Sales and Network Marketing business owners? 

 

Loyal customers are an important part of a solid Network Marketing business for long term stability, and distributors from other companies could become some of your best customers and ambassadors. In fact, solid customers who are not part of the compensation plan can be much stronger for your business than mediocre distributors who are only in it for the money, and once they quit, they stop using the products or services offered.

 

There are some things to keep in mind though....

 

It's a good idea to look for reciprocal agreements - I'll use your products, and you use my products. This is a win win. And, don't be afraid to shop around until you find someone who will also support you.

 

Be careful and think it through before you sign up as a distributor, though. In some cases, you can get the biggest discount if you are a rep for the company, but I am leery to put my name anywhere into a geneaology report or downline matrix.

Don't buy for the wrong reasons, and this would include just because they will buy from you. If the products and services are not something you will use, or that match your values, I would avoid it!

 

Make sure the product is value oriented, price wise, and not ridiculously over priced. 

 

Be up front if there is something in the product that doesn't work for you, such as an allergic reaction. I have had this problem in the past with some skin care companies.

 

Share a testimonial if you love the product. Set boundaries around this so your name is not wrongly associated, however.

 

Be a "Go-Giver" and you'll likely find you get testimonials back!

 

Also, think of other small businesses in your local area that you can support in a similar way, who may also support your business. Become a strong ambassador of small business!

 

Provide samples whenever you can, so potential customers can consider buying from you.

Understanding Why You Are Stuck and How To Get Unstuck

 

 

Since I started sharing my recent journey of change, I have talked and coached with at least a dozen people who are feeling stuck and unhappy for one reason or another.

 

So, here is my disclaimer - if you are listening and we had a phone conversation, a coaching session or an email exchange about this, I am NOT talking about you and your story.

 

And, at the same time, know this - you are not alone.

 

How this often shows up is -

 

Business stops growing.

You procrastinate.

You believe there aren’t any motivated people any more.

You stop sponsoring people.

You become indifferent and frustrated.

You might even feel hostile about your company.

 

 

There is a much deeper issue.

 

And, by defaulting to the above statements, you are saying - other people have power over me and I can’t have what I want because they are stronger than me.

 

It seems to be about unmotivated people, but really it’s about your lack of belief….in something.

 

 

Products, company or management - something.

 

Maybe you feel like you've climbed the ladder of success and found that it was leaned against the wrong wall. I've been there. Built with that turned out to be the wrong company.

 

But, there are no mistakes. There really aren’t. 

 

We are all on a journey, and we don’t know the path when we start. It’s full of starts, stops and twists and turns. The path can feel very painful at times.

 

Money, loss of income, friendships, others counting on us, what will people say and so on - it can be even worse in the network marketing “box” than corporate America.

 

You must slow down to hear the voice of God, which is ALWAYS there, speaking to you. If you can’t quiet your own voice, you won’t hear it.

 

My own story - things kept being placed in my path. Even 3 years ago.

 

Mary Kay

PLR content for a blog

Companies sending me products to demo.

 

Those things were God, or spirit speaking to me, but I had a challenge getting my ego out of the way so I could hear. 

 

What I mean by ego.

 

Passion vs Routine - what might that feel like?

 

Where will life lead me when I have a passion and I follow it?

 

What if you are being guided to serve an audience that needs and wants you? What if you are playing small to remain stuck where you are?

 

What’s the lesson for you in all of it?

 

What’s the cost? What’s the payoff?

 

The cost is in not being truly happy and following your values and passion.

 

The payoff might be not having to get back in the game and build again; of not having to tell your sponsor, or team, or whatever.

 

We never want to do something that creates more of a loss than a gain, but there are perceived payoffs and real costs that must be examined.

 

You are often losing more than you are gaining by staying stuck. 

 

More often than fear of failure, we have a fear of success, and so we continue to attract people into our business who are not really interested or ready.  When you think about it - we attract that because WE are not truly interested or ready.

 

Question - what action or behavior is leaving you feeling stuck, frustrated and unfulfilled?

 

What do you perceive the payoff to be?

 

What is the cost?

 

These are REALLY heavy questions.

 

Now, what if you chose a different action or behavior - how would that feel?

 

What would that payoff be?

 

And the cost?

 

There is a concept of IT and NOT IT.

 

It experiences align with our joy, our values and passions.

 

NOT IT experiences grate against us, deplete us, frustrate us.

 

So, right now, what is the NOT IT experience for you?

 

What might the IT experience look like? If you find yourself thinking - I don’t know - go deeper. If you DID know, what would that be?

 

These can be tough question to ask, but if you will be honest with yourself, you know the answers.

 

You serve no one, least of all you, by choosing to stay stuck. And, that’s what it is - a choice.

 

I know, I hear it - the paycheck, the company, the team - it’s all still a choice and you know for yourself how to choose it and not it, to best align with where you want to be.

 

No one else is choosing for you.

 

Actions Steps

 

Where are you feeling stuck

 

Why is it NOT IT

 

What would be it

 

What action do you commit to in order to create the change you want

 

What will that feel like?

On today’s show, we are going to talk about how to use company incentives from promotions and prizes, to trips and incentives of your own to create growth, excitement and momentum with your Direct Sales team!

How to Use Company Incentives, Trips and Contests to Grow Your Direct Sales Business

 

Company Incentives

 

Many party plan companies offer this as do some network marketing companies. Are there sign up specials, product specials, product launches ongoing with your company?

 

Pay attention to the incentives that your company offers as you can use these in a powerful way:

 

It gets the field PAID, and generating sales and customers. Teach someone how to get their money back right away with their own customer retailing. Leading with the product is often much easier!

 

It provides social proof.

 

Company incentives also give you a great way to follow up with people you may have shared your business with before who weren’t interested at the time. Emphasis on TIME. Timing changes for people all of the time so reach out.

 

I’m recording this show as I am driving so I was shooting off the cuff in my verbiage. Get more solid ideas -

StreetSmartScripts.com 

 

I’m calling you BECAUSE

 

“The company is offering….”

 

“I’m expanding my business in your area…”

 

“We have some special incentives to help new team partners into profit quickly…”

 

 

Give your team ideas how to use incentives to reach out to people for new contacts, follow ups, past contacts and their own retail sales.

 

Use these also at offline events because people are watching you, and paying attention, even if they don’t show YOU this. When you speak at networking events, giving your 30 second commercial, share those incentives.

 

Leading with the product is the best way to go when you are at a networking event, and then you can be sure your share the opportunity on the back end.

 

 

Company Incentive Trips

 

What trip does your company offer? Learn the qualification and say -

 

“Hey, how would you like to (Cruise to Jamaica with me in the fall….)”

 

“Have you ever been to Rome…?”

 

Start the conversation in an easy way like those above and then share what you are working on with your company.

 

Drip the details of any trips on your team on a weekly basis. Keep them thinking about it and working toward it.

 

Break the trip down from the BIG amount that needs to be done and share what a monthly, then weekly, then daily plan would need to look like to achieve that.

 

Your Own Incentives

 

You can always piggy back your own incentives on to anything your company offers.

 

If there are retail sales goals, let your team know that anyone who makes the goal goes into a drawing for a $100 Gift Card; or whatever fits for you. Make sure that you aren’t going into debt to get there, but making it a wash can be okay. You are reinvesting back into your business when you first start for sure.

 

Also, on company trip incentives, you can always add a free hotel night the night before, or after the trip, for those who qualify. Perhaps a drawing, like the gift card. Or, maybe you are going to take everyone who qualifies on the team out to a special dinner the night before.

 

This can also happen at company convention, too!

 

People love recognition, they love travel, fun, bling and so on! Get people excited and involved.

 

Pay attention to any incentives your upline is offering, too.

 

 

 

 

 

ACTION STEPS


Get dialed into company emails, programs and incentives. Trips?

 

Figure out the system you will use to offer these to your team.

 

What incentives, if any, is your upline offering?

 

Figure out any incentives you are also going to offer.

Building Rapport with Your Direct Sales Prospects and Team


Getting into rapport with your prospects is one of the single best skills you can learn and develop to get your prospects interested in at least taking a look at your business and what you do.

 

I just got back meeting with my mastermind group and we did a powerful exercise on validation and sharing with another person what you see and appreciate in them.

 

It is powerful to build rapport and acknowledge others for what you see in them.

 

A mistake we often make when we start in Direct Sales is blindly calling everyone without developing a solid plan for what we are going to say -

 

I’m calling you BECAUSE…

 

StreetSmartScripts.com for more!

 

“We did business together a few years back….”

 

“You know a lot of people….”

 

Give a sincere compliment. Who doesn’t feel good after a compliment and feel compelled to listen to you. It captures their attention.

 

People get so little recognition and so few compliments today for the job they are doing.

 

Make your approach not just about YOU, but also them, and most importantly them.

 

Facebook has been my lead generation of choice for the last 2 months and I have used rapport to rebuild connections and relationships with people, convert them to leads and sign ups!

 

Validation

 

This is great for team building at events, meetings and so on.

 

Validate people’s feelings and where they are coming from. Don’t be quick to just shoot back with a reason why their objection is not valid.

 

When people feel heard and understood, they are more likely to open up and communicate more freely.

 

Validation exercise with your team -

 

Everyone puts their name in a hat and one at a time, a name is drawn, and then everyone else goes offers words, phrases and descriptions to share how they see this person.

 

IT is so powerful to allow another to see themselves through the lens that others see them through.

 

All this flows into branding yourself and what others say to describe you!

 

Powerful Team Bonding exercise.

 

 

ACTION STEPS


Ask a few people what they see in you; how would they describe you?

 

Reach out to 3-5 people and make their day by just acknowledging what you see and admire in them.

 

Plan this exercise for your next team gathering.

Tools for Direct Sales Success

 

We've covered how to get prepared and really LAUNCH your Direct Sales business, vs just JOIN, which is nothing more than becoming a customer with the ability to earn an income referring others.

 

LAUNCHING is what creates success.

 

So, let's cover the tools you'll need to maximize your 90 day blitz to success.

 

There are several different types, and some of these will vary based on your company and you'll know what these are -

 

How do you share the business with someone once they are interested? You don't want to try and explain this yourself - it overwhelms and confuses them. Tools do the "heavy lifting!" You want your prospect to be saying - "I can do this!"

 

Product Tools - what are you selling/marketing? You'll want to have and use (at least once!) all of the products your company offers. Sometimes, there is a starter kit that has everything, but often there is a basic kit; a kit with a little more, and so on. Whatever the case, you may need to order above and beyond the kit, if it doesn't contain everything!

 

Be a product of the product and replace EVERYTHING in your home with products offered by your company.  Some products you may have never used before but try them anyway as you never know what you'll find!

 

The last thing you want is for a prospect to ask about a product and you have not yet ordered or tried it! Yikes, that does not breed confidence.

 

Sharing and Opportunity Tools

 

How will you explain the business you are in to others, once they are interested?

 

Is it a video? A website? A conference call? Know and use the tools that have proven successful for others.

 

Sometimes the product itself is your strongest tool so share samples and don't be afraid to make retail sales along the way!

 

Training Tools

 

How will you get your new team partners started? This is CRITICAL!

 

Don't be afraid to call someone once they DO join your business. (I know, I've been there!)

 

Start with how your upline trained you!

 

I send a 10 point checklist to each new person getting started. 

 

Know the important things someone needs to get started. They don't need to know everything about the comp plan but there are a few key things they will need -

 

How to order

 

Back office navigation

 

How to sign up a customer

 

How to sign up a new distributor

 

How to share the business with others

 

Those are some key things to focus on!

 

ACTION STEPS

 

1. How to navigate the back office and the critical steps to get launched.

2. Know the tools to take someone through the business

3. How to get a new team member started.

Your Enticing Free Giveaway

 

 

Now, don’t forget that I provide complete training audios and worksheets on this in my inner circle coaching program.

 

 

JackieUlmer.com/coach

 

 

Listen into Amber’s question about creating a free giveaway without giving away a lot of samples, as that can get expensive, especially if they are not qualified prospects.

 

I won’t get into the details of getting Facebook Fans here, as that is an entirely independent training!

 

Photos and Visual Marketing create powerful social proof, so keep Instagram, YouTube and Pinterest for this concept, and not just Facebook.

 

 

Giving away sample can be a great idea as an upset for a second look.

 

Consider creating a simple 1 -2 page Infographic (go to Fiverr.com to find someone) and pick out 5-10 key tips on how to succeed with a Detox, or whatever your particular product line is.

 

 

From the infographic, and in ongoing emails as part of your drip series, you can have videos that share more details and promote your product.

 

Don’t get overkill on selling your product. Sell the benefits of detoxing and then mention the product you used and a link. The more you sell the benefits of the process, and what they will gain, the higher the chance you’ll make the sale!

 

Recipes, maintenance tips and so on, will make for good ongoing content.

 

Make sure what you offer is of value, and not just a sales pitch. 

 

Short, sweet and the key tips will generate interest and not bog people down with too much information at once.

 

Offline giveaways are powerful too. I carry a sample bag that I can use to quickly demo skincare products and makeup colors. Super simple and creates impact.

 

What can you use?

In today’s show, I’m going to share with you how to develop a social media marketing plan and training for your Direct Sales business. Show people what to do and give them the tools!

 

 

We’ve spent the last few shows going through how to launch a business, where I am sharing with you exactly the steps I am taking to grow a business from start to finish.

 

Check the podcast archives on the blog at JackieUlmer.com for previous episodes if you missed any or are new to the show.

 

 

 

Develop a Social Media Marketing Action Plan for Your Direct Sales Team

 

 

Now, don’t forget that I provide social media content as part of the inner circle coaching program starting your second month. 5 days a week, you get content to share on your blog and Social Media.

 

 

JackieUlmer.com/coach

 

 

As I launched a new business, Visual Marketing was an important factor for me in choosing a company. Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube for sure, and even Google Plus. Facebook, yes, but it’s ever-changing, as we know!

 

 

So, one thing I wanted to create for my team, is a Social Media training - exact steps on what to do, as well as the tools to help them develop a daily action plan for success.

 

 

On Instagram, I created a new profile.

 

Generic Profile

 

Company Specific Profile

 

Now, it takes TIME and a plan to get quality followers on Instagram, so be patient with the process, and don’t judge me, ha ha!

 

Always remember that quality always trumps quality any day!

 

 

Develop your strategy. 

 

For me, on Instagram it looks like this -

 

Product Tip

 

Business Tip

 

Fun, whimsical

 

Inspirational

 

Video clips - 15 seconds and a POWERFUL platform!

 

Quick, visual and engaging, on how to use the product, how to develop that into a business and attract both customers and team partners.

 

As I do this, I am creating visual marketing pieces that my team can grab from my team training site and know what to do from the start.

 

It gives them ideas and now they are not sitting down at a blank screen, trying to figure things out. This will come over time.

 

Same with Pinterest, Facebook and Google Plus, as well as YouTube.

 

 

 

ACTION STEPS

 

 

What’s your flagship product and is it great for Visual Marketing?

 

Determine your own social media plan on each platform

 

Take action yourself first.

 

Share what you are doing and then “show and tell” what you are doing.

 

Invite them to emulate what you are doing.

In today’s show, I’m going to share with you how to create a powerful benefit statement that encourages your network marketing and Direct Sales prospects to choose you as their sponsor.

 

We’ve spent the last few shows going through how to launch a business, where I am sharing with you exactly the steps I am taking to grow a business from start to finish.

How to Make Your Prospects Excited About Choosing YOU as Their Sponsor.

 

In the last show, we covered - What’s Your Hook - at JackieUlmer.com/131 - listen to review.

 

 

Over the last few weeks, I have had a lot of people come to me, now that they know I have launched a new business, and said -

 

I wish I had known you were looking…or on the market…

 

Then, they have gone on the “over sell” why their company would be great for me.

 

And, I am honored, make no mistake, but I really was not looking, at least consciously. I wasn’t on the market, so to speak.

 

Now, a quick point - when I did start researching for a business that would fit for my daughter and I, I went straight to the internet to research companies, and sponsor’s.

 

Yes, I sponsor shopped and selected my sponsor, and my upline after stalking them online. I had a specific criteria list for a company fit, and a sponsor criteria list.

 

Learn more about the Company Criteria in my show at JackieUlmer.com/125

 

So, question for you - are you out there so that others can FIND you online, if they go looking for YOUR company and YOU as a sponsor, even if they don’t know you exist?

 

And, how do you measure up? Do you represent the type of image and partnership that someone would be looking for?

 

How are your social media profiles? Your status updates? Are you set to attract your ideal prospect?

 

Good thing to keep in mind and clean up, if needed.

 

Now, here are some tips to engage with others on if you find they have changed companies -

 

What made you start looking for a new company?

 

What was your criteria list in a company?

 

A Sponsor?

 

Now, another tip is this - if you have changed companies with some frequency, and I get that you most often have to join a company to figure out if it will be a fit for you, don’t be in a hurry to blast things all over social media. Make sure you are REALLY sure and REALLY solid before you make any public announcements.

 

This protects YOUR integrity should you find a few months down the road that it’s not a fit.

 

So, let’s develop that benefit statement for why people would want to join with you.

 

Ask - would you like to know what happens next, when you decide to join?

 

Sign up.

 

Schedule Game Plan Interview Call, and share what will be covered.

 

I’ll assist you in developing a daily/weekly action plan and strategy.

 

We’ll talk about a business launch event.

 

We’ll cover the basic tools and training on how to use Social Media effectively in your business to create interest.

 

 

 

ACTION STEPS

 

 

Take a personal inventory of yourself.

 

Share what people can expect when they join with you.

 

Develop your game plan interview training.

In today’s show, I’m going to share some ideas on how to set yourself apart from the "crowd" of network marketers, people in your company and others in home  business. Why would someone want to join with you? What makes you unique?

Everyone needs a business "Hook" to engage prospects.

What's Your Network Marketing Business Hook

 

The concept of setting yourself apart from others in your company, the profession of network marketing and home business is important so you don't begin to sound like a broken record -

 

"Join me, our products are the BEST!"

 

"Take THESE, we have these patents pending!"

 

"Guess who uses our products and endorses them? The US National Reality TV Watching Marathon Team!"

 

Guess what? No one cares about that. It sounds like a sales pitch!

 

Tell people what you DO -

 

I help women look and feel their best by....

 

I help those who have problems with low energy in the afternoon overcome that...

 

Whatever fits for your products.

 

So, look at your product line and pick one product from your line that you can FOCUS on. You can always back end the OTHER products.

 

But find one that is easy to develop a hook around.

 

Then, figure out your hook as a business partner. Sell the benefits for working with you!

 

I teach others how to develop a solid business offline and online. I built a team of over 10,000 offline, and have personally enrolled over 1800 people who came to me through social media. I share how to do this with my team, including the exact steps I have taken.

 

I love working with moms and teaching them how to build an amazing business, from home, with their children by their side, using social media and other tools!

In today’s show, I’m going to share with you an important step in achieving the success you want and that is how to manage your mindset as you launch or re-launch a Direct Sales business. Everything from getting started, to hearing no, to having success, how you manage your mindset is critical!

 

We’ve spent the last few shows going through how to launch a business, where I am sharing with you exactly the steps I am taking to grow a business from start to finish.

In the last show, we covered Success Language - and how to develop scripting that fits for you and your prospect. Listen in at JackieUlmer.com/129

 

 

 

How to Manage Your Mindset In Your Direct Sales Business Launch

 

 

Ask any successful person what the secret is to their success and somewhere in there, they will share - stating focused and managing the disappointments and setbacks.

 

And, it’s equally as important to manage your mindset around your calendar and your successes.

 

Get clear on -

 

Why you joined?

 

Determine Your Why and Write it Down

 

This sounds simple and yet very few people ever take the time to do this very important step in the business. So, let me ask you – have you taken this step? If not, do so now in the handout that accompanies this training series. Get crystal clear on this; write it down in several places, including your day times, above your computer, your bathroom mirror, etc.

 

Now, take a look at it and ask yourself – is this truly compelling enough for me to take action in my business. After reading this, am I willing to turn off the TV, make my list and begin really working my business.

 

There is a saying that your why should make you cry, and it is so true. When you care more about what you are working toward than what others might say or think about your decision, you are on the right track.

 

For me, my why was my children, as I mentioned and not having them in day care. That was compelling to me and something that I was highly committed to. It is what kept me in the game; what kept me from quitting when someone said no; or laughed at me; or quit my business when I was just sure they were going to be "the ONE" to take me to the top.

 

Make sure your why creates this kind of feeling and emotion for you. You want to be emotionally connected to your why. When you think about it, you do want it to bring up emotional feelings for you.

 

 

As you are determining what your reason why, also spend some time writing out what you perfect day would be in your life, once you are well on your way toward your goals. I say well on your way because it really never ends. You never quite get it all the way done, there is always something more to be working toward.

 

 

What your expectations are.

 

Setting Your Expectations, Handling Shutdowns

 

It is so important to set realistic expectations for yourself and your business. One of the biggest mistakes one can make is to set some super high goals that are so far outside of the ballpark that there is just no way to really achieve them. We get excited, and we think we are going to totally clear our calendar and do nothing but our business. Often, we do this at a Super Saturday, or initial training and then we get back home and the real world and real life sets in. The kids need driven for car pool, the real job may still be there, etc.

 

So, set some realistic goals and plans for yourself. We'll talk more about this when we get to the module on Scheduling your calendar and business time, and developing your plan.

 

Having your goals in writing will help you and your team with what can be known as "buyer's remorse." This often comes up when a new rep gets started, talks to a few people and experience a "shut down" and then wonder if they made the right decision.  It's easy to get bogged down in other people's opinions that can be offered to us by someone who is not really familiar with what we are doing.

 

 

Listen to my Mean Janeen story!

 

Handling the NOs

 

 

First, not everyone is going to tell you yes, and you may hear a few no's before you get to some yeses. If you know this going in, and are prepared for it, then you will be expecting to hear no from some who you are hoping will join you.

 

Can you prepare for that now? Can you handle it if and when they say no?

 

Here is one thing I assure you – if you will stick with your business; develop your business skills and keep following up with those who you have talked to previously, many of those will come back and say YES at a later time. That is my story. I said no WAY before I said yes. Nothing had changed in the business, products, compensation plan, etc, when I decided to say yes. What had changed was ME. I was now ready.

 

Remember, other people can only affect you if YOU allow them to. Their opinion does not reflect on you, your company and products, or your decision, It's simply a reflection of them, and where they are in their life right now. And, if someone happens to be mean or nasty about it, then that speaks a bit to character and their own insecurities, in my opinion.

 

StreetSmartScripts.com has some great come backs when people get arrogant with you!

 

 

 

Manage Your Mindset Around Your Calendar

 

 

Slight Edge,  easy to do, easy not to do.

 

Listen in and hear my story with the Bagel Moms. It’s about giving up something today so you can do whatever you want whenever you want tomorrow and forever.

 

 

Manage Your Successes

 

Develop your leadership skills.

 

Reach out to people but don’t babysit. Point to tools to educate.

 

Be a servant leader. Ask how you might assist.

 

Don’t be afraid of objections and challenges.

 

 

Timeline of Success

 

Understand the timeline of success. In the beginning, it feels like you are doing a LOT of work for little to no pay. And, you are! It’s like a scale that is weighted at one end. Over time, as you stay consistent, it begins to balance with time and pay, and pretty soon, it tips to the side where you are working the same of less time, and making a WHOLE lot of pay. Remember, you are building ongoing income and like compound interest, in the beginning, it seems so slow.

Also, understand the timeline of others. Some will come in right away, some will over time, some never will. Some will work their business right away, some will over time, and some never will.

 

How fast or slow did you start? Give others the latitude to start on their own timeline. You can’t control it anyway.

 

Avoid the tendency to sponsor and then sit back and wait.

 

As YOU stay consistent, you will create that tipping scale that leans in your favor!

Set realistic goals and expectations and avoid “buyers remorse.”

2-5 year plan and your first 90 days are critical.

 

 

 

ACTION STEPS

 

 

Get Clear on your why.

 

Set realistic expectations.

 

How will you handle the nos?

 

How will you manage your calendar?

 

Understand the timeline of success and don’t wait on anyone.

Success Language for Contacting Your Prospects

 

Contacting and Inviting is the gateway skill you must learn and master to be successful, it’s an art and a skill.

 

Once I learned it, everything changed. I went from being in sales mode to solutions provider and I learned how to handle every network marketing prospecting situation that came up.

 

I cover this in StreetSmartScripts.com

 

Most people aren’t trained on this topic. They sign up in their Direct Sales company, given a basic training and an idea of what to say and sent out to make that list and start contacting people.

 

We get into sales mode when we talk too much about the ingredients in the products, the celebrity endorsements and a lot of fancy words and concepts tossed around that we think is going to bring in our prospect.

 

But, that is not what “sells.”

 

What was it that brought you into the business? What caused you to get out your credit card and hit submit?

 

Did you have a product experience?

 

Or, maybe you just caught the vision of what was possible with your network marketing business.

 

Whatever it was, this is likely what you will want to share

 

Review show 127 for ideas on building your active candidate list and how to edit it properly.

 

You will contact them in different ways.

 

Spend some time developing some ideas of what you will say to  your

 

Hot Market

Friends and Family

People you’ve been in network marketing before

Those already in a Direct Sales business

 

and so on.

 

A big mistake many network marketers make is getting signed up and blasting some advertising pitch on their Facebook page.

 

Beware - Facebook is REALLY cracking down and shutting down Facebook advertising accounts, so make sure you know what you are doing. 

 

That’s ok - I have sponsored many people from Facebook just by reaching out and building relationships.

 

I sponsored 5 people just this past week through my Facebook Prospecting methods.

 

Learn more in Facebook For Direct Sales Profits.

 

People don’t come to Facebook to get advertised and sold to; they are there for social and fun. That doesn’t mean they aren’t open, you just have to be specific in how you do it.

 

You also don’t want to blast out anything big to your email list, either. You give away your ability to generate leads and interest and have no idea who to follow up with.

 

So, again, go back and start with your reasons why for building a business.

 

Contacting those who have been involved in a Direct Sales business before is an important piece. Why? Because they have been open in the past and may be again, BUT, you want to contact them carefully so as not to appear that you want to draw them away from what they are doing now.

 

 

ACTION STEPS

 

 

Write That List.

 

Sort That List.

 

Write out what you will see in different situations, to build rapport, create curiosity, ask permission.

 

Remember the third party approach.

An important step to take before you launch your business is take some time to really determine who your target audience is.

 

Here’s a hint - it’s NOT the whole world.

 

Today, we will cover how to narrow that down based on products and opportunity and you’ll find a download guide to walk you through this in the show notes -

 

JackieUlmer.com/128

 

 

We’ve spent the last few shows going through how to launch a business, where I am sharing with you exactly the steps I am taking to grow a business from start to finish.

 

Check the podcast archives on the blog at JackieUlmer.com for previous episodes if you missed any or are new to the show.

 

If you want even more in depth coaching, visit my inner circle coaching at JackieUlmer.com/coach

 

The first two weeks have been awesome of the new business launch. I have sponsored personally and my second level is started as well.

 

I have reached out to large audience and have 2 showcases booked by friends. More on that in another show.

 

I have 2 more people committed to joining this week, and many in the deciding stages.

 

I did this doing EXACTLY what I have been sharing with you in the last few podcast shows.

 

In the next show, we will cover what to SAY as you begin contact people but first, let’s determine -

 

Who is Your Target Audience

 

 

Key Points -

 

It’s not everyone.

 

This is important as you work through your list, and also as you get out on social media, into groups, forums and begin interacting with people.

 

 

Sort this into two areas -

 

Your Products

 

Your Opportunity

 

And, even if your products will only work for a specific group, don’t forget your list of potential referral partners.

 

Start with your product line, and this is where it is important to KNOW your products. What’s your Direct Sales Company’s Flagship product? What are some other products?

 

Who would be right for your products?

 

Develop a paragraph around this concept -

 

You know how people (insert challenge here)? I market a product that helps people (insert solution here.) Do you know anyone who might be interested in a product like that?

 

Now, you aren’t selling, you are problem solving. Big difference.

 

Once you’ve developed that paragraph, go through your list and pick out who fits that MOST appropriately. And, then also think of your referral partners.

 

Now, let’s think of your opportunity.

 

Tendency to think of people who NEED money. Don’t write them off the list but don’t necessarily start there.

 

Start with movers and shakers. In this case, you’ll be leading with the opportunity.

 

Again, a paragraph -

 

“You know how people have been really challenged in this economic environment? I started a business on the side that has created extra income for me, without getting a second job and leaving my family. In fact, I do most of it from home, in the evenings after the kids are in bed. Do you know anyone who might be looking for something like that?”

 

So, again, ask yourself -

 

Who is my target audience?

 

What is my target audience's demographics? (age, gender, background, income level, etc.)

 

 

 

What are their dreams, goals and desires?

 

 

 

What are the challenges, fears and concerns they face?

 

 

 

Why did I choose this audience?

 

 

 

Why did I choose my company and products? (Get VERY specific)

 

 

What experiences, skills and/or personal attributes do I have that will connect  with this audience?

 

 

What solutions do I provide?

 

 

Based on my answers and my target audience, how will I differentiate myself from my competition?


Where does my audience "hang out" online?

 

 

So, here are some ACTION STEPS for you -

 

Download the handout - 128

 

Develop your paragraph for your product and opportunity.

 

Get very clear on the solution you provide. This gives you confidence.

 

Begin to develop what you will say with each different person. It will vary and that’s okay. There is no cut and dried “script” that fits everyone.

 

The more you talk to people, the easier it will become to know what to say in each situation. Today, nothing takes me out of my game and I know what to say EVERY time. I mean EVERY time. And, I didn’t start that way. It’s only because I have done it so many times.

No matter what company or product line you choose to promote in your Direct Sales business, one of the first things you will be coached to do….and will want to do if you want to have success (I’m avoiding the word should. Do it because you understand WHY!)….is begin to build a list of potential prospects for your business and your products.

 

Let’s talk about how to make a success list; where to find those names and how to keep adding to that list.

 

 

 

If you’ve followed this show from January 1st, 2015, you’ll know that I am sharing the exact details of how my daughter and I have launched a new Direct Sales business so that you can see exactly what needs to be done, and what you can expect.

 

Check the podcast archives on the blog at JackieUlmer.com for previous episodes if you missed any or are new to the show.

 

I’m thrilled you are here, either way and enjoy spending this time with you. My goal is to empower you and inspire you to know that YOU, can do this, too.

How to Build a List of Prospects For Your Direct Sales Business

 

 

 

First, please don’t miss this point - Write out your list, on paper. Get it out of your head.

 

And, here is where you have a choice.

 

Some people say - 

 

No one I know will be interested. (Really, you are a mind reader?)

 

I don’t have any warm market. (Really, you don’t know ANYONE?)

 

I don’t want to talk to anyone I know until I am successful.

 

 

These are 3 common objections to making that list.

 

Here is the thing, though - 

 

Every business needs customers. Direct Sales consists of customers and business builders, who are also customers.

 

How do you intend to find customers to take your business into profit?

 

I understand Fear, so I want to acknowledge that. We all have them. And, those who are successful learn to push THROUGH them. It doesn’t mean the fear goes away. I had this discussion with my daughter as we were working on her list.

 

I explained what NO means from a prospect. It’s not rejection, or any kind of indicator that what you are doing, or your company/product is bad.

 

If you don’t want to start with those you know, then you MUST find alternative ways to find people to talk to.

 

This can be - life styling, offline networking events, running ads, buying leads, or social media. Those methods have been and will be covered in future shows, so stay tuned. In the meantime, still pay attention here, because either way, you’ll want to know how to work with your list.

 

And, as you go throughout your direct sales career, you’ll always want to be adding to that list.

 

So, let’s build a list, shall we?

 

Get out a notebook. Yes, we are going to WRITE it down. There is power in the act of writing vs typing.

 

Start with your hot market - these are those people closest to you, who you are simply going to contact, share what you are doing and ask if they will just try your product and give you a customer testimonial if they like it.

 

Who will do this for you, because of your relationship? Family, very close friends, inlaws and so on. You aren’t going to try to “sell” them on the business.

 

Next, let’s think more about warm market. Those would be people you know and have a good relationship with, but won’t immediately say yes to trying your product.

 

Business oriented market - who do you do business with?

 

Networking contacts

 

Previous Business Contacts

 

Facebook

 

LinkedIn

 

Twitter

 

Other Social Media sites

 

Forums online

 

Network Marketing leaders you may know - just to advise and promote product

 

My story with men and the women they know.

 

Mobile Phone

 

Holiday card list

 

Potential referral partners

 

 

 

Sort your list - how do you know these people?

 

 

This is important because then you want to pull out your pre-launch list. You’ll approach them a little differently, with a different “Hook.”

 

A hook is just a form of enticement; some bait, so to speak, and not in a bad way. You want to chum the waters; salt the oats to lead them to water.

 

Have a goal you are working toward with prelaunch group.

 

Incentive trip.

 

Regional Training Event.

 

Reward.

 

 

Promote the heck out of your incentive, Build excitement toward it.

 

Incorporate it into your contacting language.

 

 

Now, here is some advice you have heard over and over again but don’t pre-judge and don’t edit your list. Put every name down that you think if, even if you come back to them later. My daughter and I also worked on this, as she didn’t fully get it.

 

There will be some you contact for -

 

Product

Business

Referral Partners

 

 

So, here are some ACTION STEPS for you -

 

Write the list down. Don’t leave it in your head.

 

Sort your list by the 3 categories.

 

Don’t edit your list.

 

Have a hook or goal you are working toward with your contacts.

 

Be fearless with your list. You’re just asking a simple question.

How’s your new year going? Are you prepared to launch? Whether you are just starting a business, looking for a business or re-launching your current business into the new year, today’s show is going to help you with getting prepared.

 

Not the “I’m fixing to” stigma, or you know the kind - someone who is always getting everything just right to do a business?

 

I’m going to explain the difference between joining a business and launching a business.

 

I mean how to really spend a little time and get prepared! That’s what we will cover in today’s show…

 

As I have shared in the last two shows, my daughter and I have launched a new business and I thought it would be cool to pull back the curtain and show you how to start from scratch and build it.

 

In the last show, we talked about some specifics we used to choose the right company for us, and you can get an idea of a check list of  criteria at http://JackieUlmer.com/125

 

Today, I’m covering how to prepare to launch and you’ll find show notes at http://JackieUlmer.com/126 so you can come back and write down some of the steps I am covering.

 

If you want even more in depth coaching, visit my inner circle coaching at JackieUlmer.com/coach

 

 

How to Prepare For Your Direct Sales Business Launch

 

Ignorance on Fire and the Fallacy there.

 

Joining vs Launching.

 

Know your products.

 

Order and use your products.

 

Start working on your own customer testimonial. No hype!!!

 

Write out your list, get it out of your head.

 

Sort your list - how do you know these people?

 

Hot market, warm market, business oriented market, networking contacts, Facebook and social media, previous business contacts, mobile phone; potential referral partners.

 

Pull out your pre-launch list.

 

Plan prelaunch and then 90 days. Have a goal to work toward. Ours is an incentive trip in the Caribbean.

 

Success language and scripting. KNOW what to say and what to say to whom.

 

http://StreetSmartScripts.com

 

Phone, email, text, Facebook private message contacting, autoresponders.

 

Short and sweet, and NEVER give your link or company details until you get permission.

 

Offline Networking Events. What products/Tools will you need?

 

Think about social media. Do you need -

 

Gmail account

Blog or new domains

Autoresponders for opt ins

New SM accounts - FaceBook Business Page, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube

 

You may or may not. Don’t let this slow you down.

 

I do recommend a domain re-direct though.

 

I’m considering a very simple WordPress blog just to share and track my daily activities and growth. This way, interested prospects can follow along. Thinking about the duplication aspect of it, though.

 

Get familiar with the tools. Order business cards, and anything else you will need.

 

Get trained by your sponsor and take notes so you know how to get someone else new started. And, even if you are seasoned, take this step so you don’t reinvent the wheel.

 

Develop your Daily Method of Operation.

 

GET STARTED.

 

So, here are some ACTION STEPS for you -

 

Know, Use and Share Your Product story.

 

Write your list down. EVERYONE. Don’t be fearful; when you know what to say, and you do it right, you’ll have success. 95% success right now in at least getting people to take a look!

 

Start contacting. Set your daily minimum.

 

Use good success language, avoid hype and ask for referrals.

 

Follow up consistently.

Couple of quick things - I am pretty sure I am going to take the podcast back to a once a week show, on Thursdays, so this may be the final Monday show.

And, I want to add in more freedom to add special shows when I want, without being locked into 2 shows a week and on set dates.

Why? Business is booming, and the goal is to have a lifestyle business!

And, I may start another show geared around building as a busy mom. I'm just not sure, so if you have thoughts and ideas, share them with me -

How to Choose a Company

I'm so excited about 2015 and all that it holds in store! It's filled with exciting promise.

Have you taken time to plan your best year yet? Please do so if you haven't. See my show 123 for notes and download on how to close out the year and prepare for the new year.

Okay, so on to the business launch.

First, I must stress that I was not really looking for a business. I was looking for some answers, solutions to my future and thinking about my desire to work with my daughter and her friends and Generation Y.

They are a powerful entrepreneurial group when they set their minds to it.

So, would would fit us both?

What would interest her and also be something I could do.

So, I started exploring. Thank goodness for social media as I scoped out Facebook, and Instagram, mostly.

I asked - who is our target market?

Women, mostly. Moms, Students, recent grads, empty nesters - I wanted to tap into every demographic of women and really target my contacts who have Generation Y daughters and see if they may be interested in partnering together to build  a new story and chapter in Direct Sales - teams of mother/daughters working together.

Now, I know there are other Mother/Daughter teams out there in other companies, so I am not pretending to be the first. But, I wondered how many of my friends in Direct Sales and not in Direct Sales might have an interest in working with their daughter's like I hAVE....

And what a great "hook" if you will! Certainly a great way to contact and intro our business, right?

Here is a list of the criteria I came up with, keeping in mind Generation Y, my daughter's age and that of her friends -

A product we both use, understand and can talk about.


Product

Sizzle Product

Simple Product

No explanation

Product Experience - immediate glamour lashes

Feel good, look good, Cover girl look

Broad appeal among women

Great target in Gen Y and college students, post grad and moms, as well as others.


Affordable start up cost

No risk - even if one decided not to build the business, they would get more than they spent to join in products they can use.

Consumable product.

Something used by most women

Social Media strategy and a company that embraces it and doesn't hide from it.

Exciting company story.

International growth plans



Company and Management

Solid and debt free, Darren already has success building a company, has worked with MLM companies on the inside.

Sizzle Product, simple to share, explain and sell for immediate retail profit.

Conscious of staying price competitive.

Easy, affordable start up cost - $99 - fits any budget and rep gets more value in products than cost.

Money back guarantee.

Appears to be committed to hiring professionals and not just family or from within an inner circle.

"Get" social media and those platforms, more cutting edge


System

Have a facebook virtual party program already in place and it is getting huge results.

Simple show and sell product. Competitive pricing.

Can do home parties, virtual parties and all methods of making the list and contacting. We re using the Go Pro 90 Day Launch Plan.


Compensation Plan

Simple, Straightforward and lucrative.

Company is currently fastest growing DS company to date and already has multiple earners in the multiple 6 and 7 figure annual range. Amazing for a 2 year old company with a lot of "green" reps.

It's a classic plan of - don't try to strategize it or understand it all.

Make your first $2,000 in retail sales in first 90 days, and share the business and products with at least 2 people a day if you want to go slowly, share with 10 people a day if you want to build a 6 figure income in under a year.

We have a simple business plan you can follow and emulate to have the success you want.

Expansion and International Growth

Already in 6 countries with more plans to expand this year. Again, the simple flagship product makes this much easier than other DS companies experience.


Most important to me was finding something that would really be a fit for us both, and that didn't slant too far to my expertise or too far to her age.

And, we found it.

You've probably heard this before but if you just ask God, ask the Universe, it will be delivered.

So, if you are exploring a business and getting started, or planning a shift for 2015, these are some things you may want to consider.

It's easy to get caught up in the emotion of the moment in a business,and one has a better chance at success when we take the time to research, plan and select something that fits us well.


I'm looking forward to drawing on my previous experience as the top recruiter, team builder and income earner in a company with a simple product, simple price point and way to make money without having to recruit, as I know that scares off many people.

Now, having said that, I love teaching people how to effectively build a team, because that is always where the big money will be!

And, I'm excited about having a virtual party and overview platform t easily duplicate and share what we offer.

After all, I have used online methods for more than 15 years to enroll over 1800 people into a business and I am more passionate now than ever.

Here is to an amazing 2015!!!

ACTION steps

Write out your list of what's important to you in a business. Include everything. You may not get it all, but you can come dose and decide what you can and can't live without.

Begin to do your research.

Find others in the company and if you don't know anyone, don't be afraid to interview and sponsor shop.

Be open to something different. While I never totally rued out this product line, I didn't see it as a strong contender always either!

Now, I am super excited and it's funny. I have a brain full of ideas on how to share it easily on social media without really selling!

Your Listening to the Street Smart Wealth Podcast, show 124


On the last show we closed out the year.

I mentioned choosing a theme word for your year and the word I chose is launch.


Now, let's get ready to launch the new year with all the right components to make your network marketing business produce what you really want.

I give your- leaders who launch!!!!



If you are ready to stop talking and start succeeding, consider my inner circle coaching program, go to -

Boy do I have a lot to share with you on today's show and in the coming weeks.

I'm so excited about 2015 and the promise it brings. I always love the start of the new year but especially this year. I operate in 5's - 5 is my lucky number and so any thing I'm multiples of 5 always work for me.

So, I have known that big things are in store for me this year and I've been planning for it.

A lot of new things launching for me and my business this year.

2014 - a year of searching, seeking, trying some things I've wanted to do for awhile, my inner circle coaching. And, working with my daughter, who will soon be 20 and helping her launch something.

I knew launch was going to be a key component for me this year but did not know how all it would transpire or the many shapes it would take. I just new I was ready for something different. Something that felt better and created more peace.

I realized at the start of last year that there was a finite amount of time left for me, for us all. No mystery but it came into sharp focus for me.

I also want to simplify my life and looking back at 2014....well let's just say it doesn't align with simple.

So I have been planning, reflecting and going through my business life with a fine tooth comb. After a lot of thought, sorting, sifting and help from a business coach,


Here is what's on tap for me -

Coaching certification -,I'll be offering some free coaching

Social media

New business launch with my daughter.

So, I decided what better way to coach you than to have you follow along with my progress as we launch and grow this business.

If you'd like to know more, because you are looking for a business home, go to JackieUlmer.com/connect

Only for those who are serious. It's not an auto responder. I will be contacting you personally.

Reasons - most specifically my desire to work with my daughter and my prime target audiences -

Women, gen y and college students and grads, wahms - I know the unique challenges, needs and wants of these groups and have a strong desire for a team around these needs and wants.

So, I am going to be sharing with you over the following weeks -

How we chose a company and what our criteria is, why we wanted a sizzle product and how we are working with it

Our 90 day plan, following Eric Worre's 90 day launch, preparations, pre launch, launch, social media and how it fits into our launch, scripting, tools, getting new team members started, duplication and tools, follow up, and most specifically, what my daily method of operation DMO is.


How I opened myself up to what I was looking for -

I asked for help and answers. Daily prayer and meditation.

While in nyc right before Christmas, I kept picking up on signs everywhere of what I was being guided to do.

Remained mindful and opened to what presented itself. In the past, I might rate or judge something based on too many personal qualifications around it. Recently though, I started taking everything at face value and seeing how it measured up.

I let go of my own limiting beliefs.

I let go of shoulding on myself.

Mlm is full of areas where we can feel guilty or be led to think we should feel guilty. Be careful of this.

I also got very clear on my mission - to inspire and empower women to create a life and career they love.

I know what my life has been like the last 20 years, what I've e perished, what I've valued and where I want to make a difference.

Corp America is broken for women. Men, don't take this as exclusion. It's something to keep in mind as you recruit women into your business.

Understand what women are looking for. Understand their core values. More on this in the next show where I cover how my daughter and I chose a company.

I want to help more women be independent, to do work they value and truly love, to feel good about themselves. To be there with their children.
