It’s hard to know exactly WHEN (and how many times) to follow up with people.

You don’t want to miss out on a sale or chance to bring on a great new business partner…

…BUT you also don’t want to bug people, or come across as a “desperate stalker”.

7-Figure leader Kimmy Brooke is the QUEEN of follow up!

Watch this short video to learn….

How to Know When (and How Many Times) to Follow up With Prospects - Kimmy Brooke - YouTube

    • Her simple “mindset shift” that will take the fear out of follow up…
    • Why using Facebook messenger is one of the best tools to follow up with prospects…
    • Why the NO’s you hear are NEVER personal (and how to turn them into YES’s)…
    • The magic question to ask so you know the PERFECT time to follow up (so people will take your call)…
    • The number of times you may need to follow up before most people say YES.

These ideas will make following up with prospects a LOT more fun, and definitely help you get better results.

Kimmy Brooke is also the author of the very popular recruiting tool – “The 4 Year Career for Women”.

She’s also my special guest on my next TV SHOW, exclusively for women in network marketing.

I HIGHLY encourage you to join us LIVE as Kimmy is a MASTER at recruiting people (in a very elegant and heart-centered way).

She’ll show you the exact things she did to get to become a TOP LEADER in her company in just 90 days (these are things you can EASILY duplicate!)

Mark your calendar for June 6th at 1 PM PT (4 PM ET).

One of the biggest perks of growing your network marketing or direct sales business is that you CAN  build your biz on a part-time basis (which is especially helpful if you’re working full time or juggling kids or other priorities).

Even so, if you don’t have a proper plan, your “part time biz” can become a “no time” biz, and you’ll feel frustrated with the slow growth and lack of results.

That’s about to change!

Watch this inspiring training and learn “10 Ways to Turn a Part-Time Business into a Full Time Income” with my special guest, top leader in her company, Jules Price.

In her funny and informative presentation you’ll learn how to ..

    • Get the best results possible from small pockets of time you can devote to building your business.
    • Use proven “magic sentences” that quickly turn strangers into friends and new customers …
    • Confidently follow up with prospects so they return your calls (and you don’t feel like a stalker) ,,,
    • Create a simple “road map” that will help you stay on track and get the best results possible (without feeling overwhelmed or distracted by busy work).

It’s not the specific challenges that surface in your life… but how you  DEAL with these  challenges that determines your destiny.

I LOVE that saying, and when it comes to building a  business, nothing could be more true.

When you choose into being an entrepreneur, you are on a path RIPE with challenge! Your ability to navigate these challenges will determine so many things –  including your income, the speed at which your business grows,  and your overall level of fulfillment (or frustration).

Women who rocket to the top of their companies have figured out how to handle the setbacks that come their way, and an inspiring example of this is Blue Diamond leader Sharon McDonald.

Listen to this inspiring interview and learn…

  • How Sharon rose to the top level of her company in one year, while being a busy mom to FIVE kids (and dealing with a health crisis!)
  • The specific things that helped her create results quickly – while balancing family time and other priorities
  • The powerful “MINDSET” that has helped her not only survive – but THRIVE – through several life and business setbacks
  • How to discover some limiting beliefs that are likely holding YOU back – and how a shift in your perspective will help you turn your current setbacks into new opportunities and results.

One big benefit of having a network marketing or direct sales business is the deductions and expenses you can write off that can save you hundreds (even thousands) of dollars on your taxes each year.

Chances are you aren’t claiming all the expenses you could be against your business (and your tax bill is higher than it should be!) That’s why this tax training video (below) with Taxbot expert Sandy Botkin is so important.

Get ready to learn:

  • How the recent changes in US tax law will affect your business, including what you need to know to effectively claim home office, vehicle, meals and entertainment deductions.
  • Other “little known” deductions that can save you a bundle on your tax bill, including how to write-off ALL your medical expenses (including insurance) or pay for your kids college fund by employing them in your business.
  • What you need to know to qualify for an additional 20% deduction on taxes in your business next year.
  • The simple details to include when keeping records (that will protect you in case of an audit)

This knowledge won’t just help you save money on your tax bill, it will help you grow your team!

When you fully appreciate how much money you (or anyone) can save by having a home-based business, you’ll be more effective at recruiting people who want the tax savings!

A big congrats to ALL of you who submitted your videos for the “Inner Circle” coaching contest. Your wins from this year are VERY inspiring.

It was tough, but we narrowed the entries to these semi-finalists (see below).

We did our best to highlight people we feel created some of the most impressive results in their businesses or biggest changes in THEMSELVES (personal growth) as a result of being part of this program.

Now we need YOUR help to select our final winners!

The holiday season, with all its excitement and good cheer, has arrived. Although the focus of this time is obviously on connecting with friends and family, your business certainly doesn’t have to take a back seat.

In fact, this time of year can provide some wonderful opportunities to expand your network of contacts, generate extra sales, and even find a potential business partner or two. What you do in the final weeks of this year can spark rapid growth at the beginning of next year, so it’s worth taking advantage of the unique opportunities this season brings.

Here’s 7 savvy ways you can grow your business and make a difference for others, this holiday season.  

1 – Give the Gift of YOUR Products.

The holidays give you the perfect opportunity to share your products with friends, family, your local salon owner, dentist, favorite coffee shop, or other people in your community, as GIFTS! You can put together small gifts bags with samples, or put together a gift basket of your best sellers for some of the more important people on your list.

You may want to have some promotional “goodie bags” on hand that you can quickly hand out to anyone you meet while shopping, dining, traveling, etc. Be sure to include your contact info, some samples, a little holiday treat, and a discount or promotion for your biz.

You can share this with people to thank them for good service or as a gift to celebrate the holidays.

You can also reach out to your current customers and suggest they consider giving your products as gifts to people on THEIR list (and make this opportunity extra enticing with a special discount or bonus products, if possible).

2 – Include Samples with Your Holiday Cards/Annual Update.

When you mail out holiday cards this year, consider adding product samples as a small bonus gift. If mailing to your customers, you can mention a new product or a way to save on their current favorites.  

For extra impact, create a detailed “end of year” newsletter and include that with your holiday cards. You can use your newsletter to share personal news, helpful tips related to the holidays (or your products), and acknowledge and celebrate people on your team.

3 – Renew Old Connections and Warm Up Your Network.

The holidays give you a perfect excuse to re-connect with old friends, family members, neighbors, or others and deepen relationships with people in your network.   

You want to keep the focus on catching up on personal news, but if an opportunity presents itself, you can causally mention your business or offer to send them samples of your product as a gift.  

4 – Make Your Holiday Events Work for You.

Many of us will be attending social events or holiday gatherings between now and the end of the year. These events give you the perfect opportunity to meet new people and expand your network.

You obviously want to keep the focus on socializing, but if an opportunity presents itself (someone asks about your career, mentions a challenge finding a gift, etc) you can casually mention your business or suggest a product (if appropriate) or other resources. 

When meeting new people, be sure to exchange contact info (and ask to connect with them on Facebook or other social media sites) so you can easily stay in touch. These new connections may turn into customers, referral sources or even business partners in the following year.

5 – Host an Event and Celebrate Your Customers.

The holidays give you the perfect opportunity to host your own events and show your appreciation for your best customers and others who have supported your business throughout the year. Encourage your guests to bring a friend with them (you never know when you might meet a new prospect).

To promote your products/services, you can hand out little goodies bags with samples, a holiday treat, and your info. You can also create a contest or game at your event and give your services or products out as prizes.

6 – Up Your Social Media Holiday Presence.

People may have less time to get together in person this time of year, but you know they are still on their mobile devices and social media!

Make the most from using Facebook, Instagram or other social media platforms this time of year. You can share your favorite holiday recipes, funny or endearing holiday videos, or invite people to share their recipes or traditions to keep the conversation going.

You can also share inspiring stories or case studies and showcase how your products or business has made a difference for people.

If you’re feeling adventurous, host a Facebook Live or Instagram Live event and do a live demo or share tips related to your products. For example, if you sell health and wellness products, you can share tips on how to eat healthy or keep the calories under control during holiday gatherings.

If you sell jewelry or makeup, you can share tips to create the ultimate holiday look. The key is to make the info as relevant as possible to the season, and educate while you softly mention your products (hopefully with an enticing discount or year-end bonus offer).

Bottom line, have fun while you make new connections and grow your business through the holidays. When you come from the heart and a genuine desire to serve others, people will appreciate your good intentions. 

Remember that the seeds you plant now can spark some exciting business growth through the first quarter of the new year; the extra investment of focus and energy is worth it through the holidays.
