The first step when you start your network marketing business is finding people to introduce to your business, which is covered in my previous posts I’d love to join Forever Living but I don’t know anyone and Updating your Who Do You Know List. But once you start promoting your business how do you keep track of your activities?
Keep Good Records
It is most important to keep great records about what you have said to people, what resources you have sent out to them (most network marketing businesses have marketing material and videos you can send to those interested), and also when should you contact them again.
It is good practice to keep a profile sheet for anyone who has shown an interest in your business, you need to know why they may be interested in joining, what their current situation is, and the most appropriate way to contact them being text, email, or phone call. At the start you think you can keep most of this information in your head, but as you move forward with your business you will see the value of recording this information for future reference.
At Forever Living we coach a fabulous system that has been tried and tested and honed by the top leaders in our company, and when you join you receive in your business owner box a training book with all the templates and hints and tips ready to help you make a great start to your business, and if you join the right team then you will be coached personally and in team meetings on how to keep your records.
Once you have contacted someone and recorded your conversation with them the next stage is to follow up effectively. Make sure if you have promised to send information through that you do it in a timely fashion. If someone has committed to attending a meeting or watching a video then get a commitment from them on when they will attend and watch and follow up straight after to catch them while everything is fresh in their mind.
If you have someone who shows an interest in your business, but then they decline your offer to try products or join the business then accept their no. Everyone is entitled to decline your offer of more information or of joining your team. Now just might not be the right time for them. Make sure you keep their details and schedule a follow up for a few months time. The follow up when the time comes also doesn’t need to be pushy or a blatant plug for your business again, but a simple how are you or how are things can open the door to a conversation about your business again.
To effectively follow up on your business you need to keep a diary to schedule your contacts. It is also useful when you are selling consumable products to keep in regular touch with customers too. With Forever Living we know the Aloe Gel drinks last around 3 weeks so a quick text asking if your customer is ready to place another order is great customer service. It can be a paper diary, or personally I prefer an electronic one which syncs with my phone. When you have been in the business for a few years, as I have, then effectively following up can really help you build your business.
