It took me 7 years and today to realized that follow up is absolutely without a doubt key.
But I will say this… “I hate follow up.” or at least I did.
It is the most dreaded activity for most network marketers. Why?
Because it feels like you are chasing people down. The follow up of old was to call your prospect every few days.
Calling people and trying to convince them to join your opportunity for many of us, myself included, felt like harassment.
I didn’t want my family and friends avoiding my phone calls because I was told by my upline to “follow up.”
There had to be an easier and better way!
21st Century Follow Up
Welcome to the age of internet marketing. We are now deeply involved in a technology world. We have access to resources faster than every before.
You talk to a prospect today and they go to the computer or phone, do research and based on that… decided whether or not to join your team.
The internet can either help your or hinder you in your MLM business. You have to choose which.
If you decided to embrace the internet and become a student of some very basic principles of marketing. You can absolutely without a doubt build bigger and faster than ever before.
Old School Teaching: Write a list of 100 people you know. Then call them.
New School Teaching: Create a capture page that builds your list of targeted prospects. Call them.
Which one is better? Only you know the answer to that.
New School Follow Up
If you choose new school follow up, you have some learning to do. The online university that trained me in all things marketing was Elite Marketing Pro. Hands down THE best and most complete training resource you can get your hands on.
I have clients that have paid 20K-30K to only receive one tenth of the education found inside Elite Marketing Pro. The ridiculously low price of this system still floors me today.
But what you will learn is how to create the capture page to target people that want to join your opportunity. And you also create follow up that is non intrusive and fun.
Here… Let me show you…
As you can see, this is a much more targeted way to get leads that are looking for your opportunity. Plus having the ability to follow up via email or phone makes rejection free recruiting a reality.
You will only be talking to those pre-qualified to join your business.
I don’t know about you, but this is my perferred way of building my business. And so far it is working. Over the past 2 months I have brought in 3 new distributors. Something I haven’t done in years. They only thing that changed for me… Using a capture page.
Now I can send emails about training, stories, and prizes. I can share with them my story and introduce them to others.
Heck, I even went on to create a Google+ community for my team so that I can continue to educated and train them. You can check out the training post I did on that here.
How Long Should Follow Up Last?
I have had people join me in my opportunity after a year of being on my list. When the time is right for them, is when people join.
So make it a point to email your list. If there is company training, new promotion, or special offer. Having that list allows you to communicate with them for a very long time.
New product launches… someone on your team moves up in rank.
Having this targeted list and engaging with them is going to be in growing your business.
My recommendation to you. Stop sending people to your company replicated website and start sending people to your capture page. Discover who is really interested in joining you in your business.
