I also happened to get a nice email from Tom Schrieter a day ago. Since it has so many great tips, and since Tom is my favorite mlm "guru" (I am sure he doesn't like that word!), I thought I'd share it with you.
Take action with what he says and your mlm business can't help but grow!
Hi, Tom "Big Al" Schreiter here.
Great Idea #1: Problems with your downline?
Fix all of those problems now with Bob Newhart's five-minute YouTube video. You will love the ending:
Great Idea #2: People hate phoning for appointments, but this could be fun!
How about a texting party? Instead of inviting your downline over on Saturday night to make phone calls for appointments, do this.
Ask each distributor to bring 30 or 40 mobile numbers of people they haven't approached yet, numbers from the newspaper, etc.
Send out the text offering an opportunity and wait for the replies. Maybe you could have a prize for the first reply, the most replies, etc. And there is no rejection. They will just be visiting with the replies to make an appointment for next week.
Great Idea #3: People don't "get it" . . . and even I don't "get it" . . . but it works. If you haven't signed up for Twitter.com, do it now. It has the same momentum Facebook had in the beginning, and you'll want to have your presence there.
The learning curve is . . . nothing. But, hang around for a bit, get some great resources from the posts, and gradually learn some strategies to use Twitter.com for your business.
It grows on you, and you graduate to more sophisticated strategies and understanding, oh my.
But don't let me ruin the surprise for you. Just sign up and start.
Great Idea #4: Get no-cost consulting and help on your online projects - Houston "Get It Done" Weekend, March 13-15.
