Why You Should Show Your Business to 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. At Ambit, we call it STP (Show the Plan). And we never stop doing that. We don't have any products for people to touch, taste, wear or smell. 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. Why Should You Show Your Business to Everyone? I don't mean just the people in your comfort zone. I don't mean just the people you think might be interested in your business. And I don't mean just the people you think would be fantastic at your business. I mean everyone you know and everyone you develop relationships with in the future. Everyone. Got it? Good. 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 Do Research’

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...]

Overcoming Objections to Building an Ambit Energy Business: ‘Not Enough Time’

This is the first in a series of posts about overcoming the most common objections people give to building an Ambit Energy business. In this one, we look at the most common one: “I don’t have enough time.” I’ve heard this objection more times than I could ever remember. Here's the thing: everyone is busy. I work my Ambit business part time. I have a full-time job and do some freelance work that I really enjoy doing, all in addition to Ambit. Plus, I have an awesome wife and four young kids (that's them below!). I, as much as anyone, understand what it means to be busy. When you get this response, don’t immediately push back. Say that you understand, and maybe even relate to them. For example, I sometimes will say, “I certainly understand how time can be an issue. I have a full-time job plus a family of five I have to take care of.” Then respond with a question (responding with questions is always great!). One option is to ask them how much time they think they would need to … [Read more...]

Ambit Energy Offers Open Enrollment Zero Down 2.0 Promotion

Ambit Energy is bringing back its most successful promotion, but this time has added a twist that will make it even easier for consultants to grow their business and promote through the company's compensation plan. The Zero Down 2.0 promotion waves the standard startup fee to get a consultant's business up and running. That's right. Normally $429, this promotion is an open enrollment. The only overhead cost is $24.95 a month for your suit of marketing websites that allows consultants to enroll customers and other consultants. To add to the Zero Down 2.0 promotion, Ambit Energy is also offering a Double-50 Bonus. Here's how it works: Any new consultant who enrolls four Texas customers in their first 28 days from starting their business can earn $200 ($100 is paid on the first two Texas customers and then another $100 on the other two customers). New consultants who enroll five non-Texas customers can earn $150 ($100 is paid on the first three non-Texas customers and then another … [Read more...]

Ambit Energy Announces Open Consultant Enrollment

For the first time in the history of the company, Ambit Energy today announced that new Marketing Consultants can enroll for $0. The cost to start an Ambit Energy business has traditionally been $429, but from Jan. 24 through Feb. 27, anyone can sign up as an Ambit consultant in an open enrollment period with the $429 waved. There is a monthly fee of $24.95 for a suit of websites consultants use to run and market their businesses, including signing up customers and other consultants. The announcement was made at the company's annual Simulcast kickoff event help in Dallas and Newark, N.J. New consultants can earn $100 just by enrolling two Texas customers or earn three non-Texas customers. They can also earn an additional $100 for two more Texas customers in their first 28 days in the business, or an additional $50 for two more non-Texas customers.

What’s the difference between inviting and presenting? In your Ambit Energy business, it means everything. If you want to increase success in your business, be an inviter, not a presenter.
