I am the world’s biggest coward. I don’t do cold calling. Yep, I’m afraid to ask total strangers to join my opportunity. I don’t send out opportunity offers to my social networks friends list. I know many people do, but I don’t like to bother people. Call me an aggressive non-aggressive. I make it a personal rule never to sponsor anyone until they tell me that they want to join me in my opportunity.
It’s true, they have to ask me to join before I ever call them and talk to them for the first time. 10 to 20 people per month currently do just that. Of those that ask, I sponsor about 60% of them.
The other thing you should know is I don’t participate in any free or one pay or low premium opportunities. It costs $180 to join me then about $140 per month. I tell you this because I want to impress upon you that you don’t have to beg people to join you. In fact, it simply doesn’t work.
What do I do. Well, I am an online social animal. I write blogs, I post in others blogs, I participate in forums, I send out greetings in my social networks two to three times each day. I have a Monday morning radio show, I do a Wednesday evening webinar, I write articles, and I give tons of free advice out.
Doing all this creates a steady stream of traffic to my website (greg-arnold.com) which is set up in four pages, each a squeeze page or landing page. This creates a steady stream of highly targeted leads. Some of which are ready to ask me to sponsor them. I send all my leads an invitation each week to come to my webinar.
All of this creates 6 to 12 new sponsorships each month. It all takes a discipline to be consistent everyday, but it is worth it. I can teach anyone to do it, but I have already given you a pretty good outline right here in this blog. Making money doesn’t have to be difficult. Most people make it a lot harder then it really is.
BTW, I have sponsored 3 terrific people from Successville in the last week, as well as 1 from my blog, 3 from Facebook, 1 from Amazon books and 2 from MySpace. All in the last week. Ok it’s been a little better than normal. But I still can’t stress enough, anyone can do it.
Best of success to you,
