One of the smartest and most effective ways to grow your network marketing or direct sales business is get out and connect with people in your own local area.
If the idea of introducing new people (or even friends or other acquaintances) to your business feels intimidating, you aren’t alone! How exactly do you approach strangers and strike up a conversation? How can you mention your business to people you know (without things feeling weird)? Is there an elegant way to do this, and if so – how?
7-figure leader Kimmy Brooke also felt a bit nervous when she first launched her business. Instead of focusing on “Can I do this?” she asked herself a better question – “How can I do this?” and it helped her get more creative with networking ideas.
Kimmy was a busy mom with a demanding full time job, but the one thing she could do was meet with prospects on her lunch hour. She made it a goal to book up her schedule with lunch dates, and started inviting all her friends and other social and work contacts. Before long, she had several meetings scheduled and a lot of opportunity to share her business with others.
Kimmy’s authentic and heartfelt approach attracted many of her contacts into her team; within three months she was able to leave her job to pursue her business full time, and she’s never looked back. .
Another successful leader – Sarah Zolecki – had already talked to many of her contacts, and decided to make it a goal to meet new people every day. She’s a masterful networker and not only easily makes new friends, but goes out of her way to help them out whenever possible (with referrals, recommendations, etc).
Sarah also makes it a point to add her new contacts to Facebook consistently! This allows her to easily stay connected to her new friends, while sharing updates that help her develop more of a relationship (and create more curiosity about her business).
Both Kimmy and Sarah have built large teams (and 7-figure businesses) by connecting with people in their local area. Watch this video to hear more step by step details and pick up some additional tips to help you find and recruit savvy leaders in your own city or town.
