Are you ready to go at a moment’s notice?

If someone said to you right now, this very minute, that they were thinking about something they could do from home and would love to find out more about your company, would you know what to do? Would you stutter with excitement and then overwhelm them with every aspect of everything you know? Would you tell them you will mail them information? Would you tell them you’d have to have your upline talk to them?

Think about how most consumers in this country buy. We are, for the most part, impulse buyers, wouldn’t you agree? Retailers know that “striking while the iron is hot” is the key to effective selling. When we pick something up on impulse and take it to the cashier at a store, we put it on the counter, the cashier rings it up, bags it and takes payment from us. It’s as simple as that.

How would it be if the cashier felt obligated to spend 15 minutes giving us a lengthy explanation of how and where the product was manufactured? Or, if she asked us if we could leave (the product) with her and come back tomorrow when her manager could give us that information? How likely would it be that we would still make the purchase? Certainly, that chances might go down, wouldn’t you agree?

Our point is this, be ready when someone wants to buy. We sell not only our product but our opportunity. Are you as ready to sell the business opportunity as you are to order product for a customer? Can you answer “yes” to the following statements?
~ I know the cost
~ I can fill out a consultant agreement with as much ease as a customer product order form
~ I know payment options
~ I understand any “quick start” incentives my company might be offering
~ I can explain simply (on a paper dessert napkin) how we get paid
~ I know what to do with the application once it is filled out and can tell my new team member when to expect her kit of products to be delivered.
~ I know how new consultant training works in my company.

Obviously there are a lot more things that a new consultant will need to know to get her business started, but for the purposes of getting her kit ordered, (remember, the impulse buy); these are the bare-bone basics. If you answered “yes” to the above questions, congratulations, you will soon be building or adding to your team! If you need help with any of the above points, pick up the phone, call your upline right now and get some help so you are ready to go!
