Don’t be a scaredy-rep. Well, most of us have experienced this feeling in the beginning, but really there’s nothing to be afraid of. So many network marketing reps are so afraid of this, but I’ll show you how easy it can actually be.
Most companies promote the idea of PBR’s, or private business receptions. This is the most effective use of your time, because you gather a group of people together at the same time to hear your presentation. It’s done in a casual setting, like your home, and a super effective way to expose, engage, excite and explode your organization. The other advantage to doing a PBR is that it’s the most effective way to create duplication in your down line.
Be a leader and hold PBR’s with your team, having them help with inviting and during the event. They will learn how easy this method is and, and more importantly, that this is the way your team does things. When you have your entire team duplicating this process, everyone has the potential of exploding exponentially.
Now, you may hear other marketers out there who say that PBR’s aren’t necessary, or that they don’t like to do them. That’s fine, but I can assure you that those who do hold regular PBR’s, and teach their team to do the same, will grow the fastest. You just can’t beat presenting to a group of 5, 10, 20, or more at once. You save a ton of time, benefit from the excitement of the group, and grow your entire organization much faster.
If you lead this way, it will show that this is one way to develop themselves and grow into a better marketer in the long run. This is where people skills will be sharpened and leadership is developed.
There really isn’t anything mysterious about the process. You simply invite people to attend a short presentation, never trick them into coming, serve some simple snacks, show your opportunity, answer questions, and give a call to action. Discover who may not be interested at all in learning more and thank them for coming. They can gather in a separate room to visit if they like, while you spend a little time with people who show interest.
Have applications handy, and when all questions have been answered, give hem the call to action: “well, it looks like you’re ready to going, which credit card do you want to use”? It’s important to get them started right away, or you stand to lose the excitement. Get them right into training and setting up their own first PBR.
