Why You Should Consistently Seek Coaching in Your Home Business

One of the most important things so many people miss about building a home-based business is the importance of consistently reaching out for coaching. There is a big disconnect with the way the corporate world operates, and the way a lot of home-based businesses or network marketing businesses operate. In the corporate world, reaching our for coaching and asking questions is seen as a negative. It gives the impression that you don't know how to do your job that you are being paid to do. People typically avoid asking their "managers" questions about how to do their job. But when you are building your own business and generating your own income, there's no shame in reaching out for coaching and help. In fact, you not only should seek coaching, you really have to. You Don't Know It All If you're just getting your business started, you have to reach out for coaching from your team leaders. Yes, it's your business, but your coaches and mentors are there to help you grow. Put your … [Read more...]

How to Get Your Network Marketing Team Going: Run a Contest

Contest

Would you like to earn an all-expenses-paid trip to a place like this? I'll show you how my team just ran a contest to go to this exact place, and how running a contest can help get your team into action. "How do I motivate my team?" "How do I get my team to take action?" "What's the best way to kick my team in the butt?" It might be the most common issue in building a home-based business or network marketing business. Everyone runs into this issue, and if you stick with your business, you will run into it more times than you can count. The best answer to get your team off their butts and building is to lead by example. Show them how it's done. Everyone has their commitment level based on their goals and what they are willing to sacrifice. But your team will almost never do more or build faster than you. If you want them to go to events, you better be there and be the first to get your ticket. If you are looking for a "runner," then go out there and be a runner. But … [Read more...]

Why It’s Critical to Launch Your Home Business

Launch Your Home Business

If you pay attention to the pros, you'll notice something they almost all have in common: they launched their home business. They didn't work it here and there when it was convenient. They didn't work it only on the weekends. They didn't treat it like a hobby. They treated it like a real business and launched it. Launching your businesses doesn't have to include working several hours a day. You can launch it part time. Here's why it's critical to launch your home business. Condense Your Activity Launching your business can mean condensing your activities into short periods of time. Here's an example: Let's say you have a contact list of 100 people, and in the beginning you only have one hour a day to devote to your business. When we invite people to take a look at our business presentation, which is a 15-minute video, we only spend about 60 to 90 seconds inviting people. So, in our business, we can make 10 invitations over the phone in roughly 20 minutes, even a little … [Read more...]

Your Expectations Don’t Mean Crap!

Frustrated Home Business

How do you react when your business doesn’t turn out like you expect? Do you keep going and push forward? Do you sit in the corner and suck your thumb? Here’s the deal: your expectations of how your home-based business will go don’t mean crap. Now, I’m not talking about goals. You absolutely should set goals for your business. I’m talking about what you expect things to be like. Expectations do not determine results, so you should not base your preserved success or failure on your expectations. More Goals. Fewer Expectations. I’m all for visualizing what you want and planning exactly how you are going to get there. But expectations are different. Let’s say you get started in your business and you’re super-pumped about making money from home. You know you’re going to kill it. You’re so excited and confident that you expect about one in every three people you talk to will either become your customer or join your business. That’s very likely not going to be anywhere close … [Read more...]

Overcoming Objections to Building an Ambit Energy Business: ‘I Read Bad Reviews Online’’

MLM_Objections1

In our series of overcoming common objections people give to building an Ambit Energy or network marketing business, we've covered several things such as "I don't have enough time" and "I need to talk to my spouse," among others. This week we are looking at one just about everyone has heard, but can be difficult to know how to respond to unless you are prepared. I actually came across this objection the very morning that I'm writing this. See the screen shot below for the text I received from a prospect. It's the "I read some bad reviews on the Internet" objection. Uhm, yeah. So this is probably my one objection when I have to hold back my emotions. To you and me, it's a pretty ridiculous objection. But to your prospect, it can be pretty concerning since this is their initial exposure to your business and company. The Truth First of all, let's look at the truth about this objection. Anyone can Google bad reviews and complaints, especially with big companies. … [Read more...]

Why You Should Show Your Business to Everyone

Everyone

One of the few critical parts of building an Ambit Energy business or any network marketing business is to invite, invite, invite. You have to expose people to the business opportunity.

We work on developing relationships, figure out ways to bring value to people and STP, STP, STP, STP to everyone we know. We're NOT asking them to join. We are just asking them to take a look.

Sort Through People to Gauge Their Interest In any type of business, you have to expect the vast … [Read more...]

Overcoming Objections to Building an Ambit Energy Business: ‘I Need to Talk to My Spouse’

Over the last few weeks we've been looking at how to overcome some of the most common objections people give to building an Ambit Energy business. These objections can also be applied to most any home-based or direct sales business. This week we look at an objection that's is usually a good thing: "I need to talk to my spouse." I was actually hit with this objection a few weeks ago with a lady in California who got in touch with me through my website. She even told me she was about 90 percent ready to join the business... BUT she needed to talk to her husband. What They Really Mean First, let's look at what someone really mean when they give this objection. Typically, they mean that they want to make sure their spouse is on board. This can be a good thing, because if someone is seriously considering building a significant business, they definitely should make sure their spouse is on board and will be supportive. They may even want to build the business with their … [Read more...]

Ambit Energy Success from Home

If you've been involved in network marketing or direct sales for any length of time, you know that people give all kinds of objections and excuses as to why they can't build a business. Our second post on overcoming common objections people give to building an Ambit Energy business (or any network marketing business, really) looks at the objection: "I need to do some research." Be sure to read my first post in my series covering objections on "I don't have enough time" here. So, how do you respond when you show someone the business opportunity and they tell you they need to do some research? Don't Push Back Like with any objection or excuse you receive, never immediately push back or belittle someone's excuse or objection. Always be respectful. Even if they might have misconceptions about the business and opportunity, everyone has a different perspective, different experiences and different mindsets. Instead of pushing back and objecting to their objection, say that you … [Read more...]
