General Outline for Recruiting and Working with Leads
First, you need to understand that in order to recruit, you need to constantly speak with people. These is many differant ways to get leads. Talking with people when you are out of your home, running newspaper ads, purchasing leads, and advertising online.
The key is to constantly speak with others. You have to purchase more than just a few leads per month. Run more than one ad a month. It takes consistency in order to make your recruiting efforts pay off.
You must plant those seeds, and you will reap the rewards.
Recruiting is a numbers game; you have to have many contacts that you speak with every day. Do not get discouraged if you get told no or if someone you contact really doesn't seem to be interested.
This business is not for everyone, so you just say "next" and go to the next person. Do not take it personally.
If you are serious about recruiting you need to have the tools that are needed to make your efforts successful. All these tools fit together and work for you to build your business when you're not.
#1 - Auto- responder
There are many differant ones out there, check with your sponsor to see what they recommend or use.
This is your automated service that works for you 24/7, and 365 days a year.
#2 - 800 # or toll free number
So prospects and customers can get a hold of you. There is a service through Scent Sations which is MiaBellaPhones.com.
But again, check with your sponsor to see what they are using.
#3 - Unlimited Long Distance Plan
You will be calling leads all over the United States and Canada. This is a must in order to recruit. Most phone companies have these plans.
#4 - Business Cards
I recommend ordering from the company. Some have tried to print their own but ended up costing them more money in the long run.
The company cards are nice. You could also go to vistaprint and pick your own design.
#5 - Brochures
You purchase these from the company. From your back office or by calling into the company.
#6 - Printer
You need to invest in a printer or have a way to get copies made of the recruiting letter to send out to prospects and other materials.

- 2x3 inch plastic bags
