Everyone is Familiar With the Frisbee But… How in the Heck Does That Apply to Your Network Marketing Company?
Over the last year I had the pleasure of working (briefly) with a gentlemen by the name of Chris Lobato in a network marketing company we were with. Chris has been involved in Network Marketing for the better part of 20 years and teaches some very simple but powerful principles.
The Frisbee analogy is just one that I want to share with you today.
Like I said, this is a simple principle but many of us neglect to keep this in the forefront of our minds in our network marketing business.
Frisbee’s are something we need to be constantly throwing out there if we expect our MLM business to grow, and they come in many shapes and sizes.
Here is the F.R.I.S.B.E.E. breakdown…
F = Friendly Conversation
R = Relate it to (your network marketing company)
I = Interest
S = Stories
B = Business Card Exchange – more importantly, get their business card
E = Execute a Follow Up Call
E = Expect a Sale
Too often when we are out and about living our lives and in the midst our daily routine, we tend NOT to think about our network marketing company. Most will set aside a portion of their day that is only dedicated to their MLM business.
If you’re going to be successful with your network marketing company then you need to be throwing Frisbee’s everywhere you go.
AND NO… I’m not talking about trying to be some super hyper salesman 24 hours a day… How annoying is that? BUT!
When you are out an about, look for the opportunity to start a F- Friendly Conversation with people. R- Relate that conversation to your network marketing company and if there is, I- Interest, S- Share your Story. Express how your network marketing company has changed and benefitted your life. From there, be sure and do a B- Business Card Exchange and then E- Execute a Follow Up Call- (the fortune is in the follow up) Lastly, E- Expect a Sale!
Frisbee’s come in many shapes and sizes… Business cards, brochures, flyers, drop cards, T-Shirts or Ball Caps with your network marketing company logo printed on them etc. Be sure and always have at least one of the above on hand. You never know when you can toss a Frisbee out there!
One thing for sure, if you’re not throwing Frisbees on a daily basis, building relationships, talking with people, then building your network marketing company is going to be a very slow and painful process.
Here’s another quick little Acronym for you that also applies to your MLM business.
Safety in Numbers, and The Law of Averages! Simply put… The more people you talk with everyday, the more likely you will be in recruiting new talent into your network marketing business. He or She that talks to the most people will win the game!
