Network Marketing – Getting The Best Start Possible

Arbonne Gold BagWhy start with 6 to 8 Gold Bags?


Starting your business with a bang!

When I started my business, I understood enough to get going but didn’t fully understand all the advantages & reasons for including 6 to 8 Gold Bags (RE9 sets) in my business order.

I feel very strongly about giving that knowledge to people before they start, so they have the best foundations for their business to start growing. Whatever speed they want it to grow.

The Reasons listed below:

1) The Gold Bags are like your employees:

  • In the UK we lead with the business first and products second.
  • The Gold Bags are a bridge to the business, in the presentation we touch on the quality & beneficial qualities of the products.
  • By giving out the Gold bags for people to try for 2-3 days they get to see the quality for themselves. And begin to understand how the combination of our business system with the products can benefit them physically & financially.

2) The Gold bags are an aid to maintain momentum:

  • The best way to work this business is to do a little every day. How little is your choice!
  • Habits are formed in 21 days, so by starting your business doing those little bits each day, before long those few things become second nature. Enabling your business to grow at a constant, steady pace and never seeming like a chore.

These could be:

  • Reading a book or listening to an audio related to the business or product for 20minutes each day.
  • Speaking with 3-5 people each day – Inviting them for coffee, to an opportunity meeting or to arrange a Skype call.
  • Share the opportunity with however many people you choose each week & give them a Gold Bag trial.

Whether this is 4, 6, or 8 each week, by having your gold bags on a shelf you can see, you will know if there are too many bags left on the shelf. This acts as a reminder to speak to another one or two people.

The Advantages are listed below:

1) By placing an ideal business order, as well as having all the tools to run a successful business, the qualifying volume (QV) this order holds puts you into qualification to become a district Manager (DM).

And then by signing up just one new Consultant like yourself with an ideal business order you become a District Manager (DM).

Why this is an advantage:

  • At the level of district manager (DM) the commission you receive goes up to 8% from 4%, you begin to earn commission on your own purchases and from any down line you have.

Where as an Independent Consultant (IC) the level we all start at, has no depth, meaning you only receive commission from people you personally sponsor (introduce) and not from who they sponsor(down line).

2) Receive a £60 cash bonus, again by doing an ideal business order and sponsor one Independent consultant with the ‘ Double Down Consultant Challenge’:

3) By Duplicating the ideal business order & following the system & showing any new Independent consultants you sponsor how to do the same the sooner you can reach the District Manager level and beyond.

At District Manager Level you can get a cash bonus of £100 for having 5000QV going through your business in any one month,’5000 New & You’ This is the combined Qualifying volume of you and anyone in your down line and is a good incentive to duplicate the 6 or 8 bag order with new consultants. It is the system for success!

As you progress up the levels both your commissions and Bonuses increase substantially.

Why should I use my ‘Right Value Start Pack’ (RSVP)?

£400 Standard Retail Price (SRP) Products for £200 – 50% Off

  1. It is available to New Consultants and new preferred Clients only.
  2. The chance to try the products you’d like at half price.
  3. To have a great selection of products at your launches which people can touch and smell – A great way to find your first Clients or Preferred Clients.
  4. To sell on and make a good profit – If you choose to.

What if I want to spend less and purchase 4 Gold bags with my start order?

You can start your business with less than 6 or 8 Gold Bags but you must understand it will hinder the progress of your new business.

As it will take longer to build up your Qualifying Volume to progress up the titles and if you duplicate yourself it will also be tougher for your team.

I’m not saying it can’t be done, but it’s worth considering that the most successful people in this business are duplicating 6 to 8 Gold Bags in their start ups.

You mustn’t forget this is a business and with any business there are start up costs. Network Marketing just happens to have very low start up costs and virtually no overheads.


How To Cold Call In Network Marketing

The Cold Call
The cold call can strike terror into any Consultant. It can leave even an experienced Consultant running for the hills, destroying their self-confidence and crushing their self-esteem.

Fear of rejection is the main reason so many cold callers fail so miserably.

Remember, a cold call is nothing more than a way to introduce yourself and your business to someone else. Yet even seasoned consultants are intimidated by the tactic. I hear from my downline things like, ‘I don’t want to say or do the wrong thing. I don’t want to impose. I don’t want to be rejected,”

So how do you get yourself or downline over the fears and making those calls?

Below are 7 tips on overcoming those Cold Calling nerves.

Tip #1 The Luke Warm Cold Call.

What do you do when someone calls you and tries to sell you a new swimming pool? Unless you want a new pool, you won’t be interested.

That’s the same with your business. So don’t go after total strangers. Go for your luke warm market. These can be referrals from people you have shown the opportunity, friends of friends or people you have met briefly.

For example, I was on a long train journey from London to Manchester in the UK and I got out the Arbonne FC5 hand Cream and the lady opposite asked about it.

We swapped business cards and I called her a week later. She showed interest so she was luke warm.

Tip #2 Prepare

Prepare before you make the call.

Have a pen and paper to hand. Write down the prospects name and a little information about the person.

For example, how you met and how much they know about your network marketing business. Know what you want to say, how you want to say it and how you want to represent yourself.

Imagine you are receiving the call. Write a list of objections and answer them yourself. Be prepared for every objection.

Have a goal for each call. It can be anything but make sure that the goal is in your control.

Tip #3 Practice, Practice, Practice again.

If you are new to cold calling or uncomfortable with cold calling practice your pitch out loud. Role-play with friends and your upline. This way you will not have to worry about what you are going to say, you will be prepared and you can focus in on your prospect.

Tip #4 Stay Calm

You will for the most part be talking to people who will appreciate your call. But if the person is rude, remember: This is not personal. They may just be having a bad day. Move on.

Tip #5 Focus on ‘NO’

Play a game where you don’t focus on ‘YES’ but focus on ‘NO’. Remember that this is a numbers game. For every 9 ‘NOs’ you get 1 ‘YES’. So give yourself 1 point for every ‘NO’. Focus on acquiring points. The more calls you make, the more points you make. When you reach 100 give yourself a prize.

Tip #6 Interview The Person

Use the call as a mini interview where you are in control. Especially if it is a person you haven’t spoken to for a few years. You don’t want to find out that person has turned into a nutter.

Tip #7 What is the worst that can happen?

Seriously, what is the worst thing that will happen? This is not life or death—it’s only a phone call. The fate of the world does not rest on you and your telephone. You will not destroy your company or ruin your life if a person says “no.” So loosen up, be creative and have some fun!

Summary on The Cold Call
