I had someone make that statement several years ago, and it’s a great question, so here goes…… let’s end up at the Truth….
I recently received an email, you know the type, Auto-responder message that everybody gets, and most people never read. Well, I read this one, the subject line sucked me right in, and it went like this….
How To Get Your Network Marketing Prospects On Autoship
Key: How Your Company Business Model Drives The Behavior In The Field
A huge percentage of successful businesses, both online & offline, offer “autoship.” Autoship – also known as “til forbid””- means your company automatically ships product every month on a credit card order, until they are told to stop.
I never talk to a prospect about our company compensation plan without telling them that they need to be on autoship.
The Message continued….
Here Is What I Say To My Prospects.
It’s designed for my company situation, but you can model it for your company. Just think about these points, and how you can relate them to YOUR business.
Here is what I tell my prospects:
If you’re going to join me in my business, you’re going to want to be on autoship for 3 good reasons. Let me explain that to you.
The first reason you want to be on autoship is, you can now write that autoship amount off your taxes as overhead, just like your advertising budget, because you’re going to use those products to give away as samples to somebody. That is an advertising expense. So you can write that off and get free product from the company.
Reason number 2: you do want to get free product from our company. We have X number of products, and if you’re only using 3 or 4 of them, you might never ever experience our Super Duper Energy Formula. Last month, they gave that away to everyone on a $100 autoship. This month they gave away their weight-loss product.
Now, you might not need to lose weight, but maybe your sister does. If you had a free product, you’d probably give it to your sister.
Reason #3: If you join as an Instant Grand Space Commander, that’s $499. You get $600 worth of product, and the $29 kit. You get the same websites, no monthly fees. And the company pays up to a $200 fast start bonus on that. So when you sponsor new Instant Grand Space Commanders, you have the potential to make $200 from every one of those sign-ups.
If you come in as an Instant Poobah at $189, you can get up to an $80 fast start bonus.
Now – there’s also a $29 level, if you just want to be an associate. You don’t get any product.
The main thing is, the autoship is the same for both the Instant Grand Space Commander & Instant Poobah. So if you come in at $499, you can leverage and earn a $200 fast-start on your recruits, and if you want to build income, that gives you your best value.
I Never Push Them One Way Or Another
I give them that information and let them make up their mind. And most come in as Instant Grand Space Commander.
I skipped some of the filler to get to their real reason….
Now here’s the point. Maybe you build a group of 1000 reps. But if you only have 100 of them on autoship, what good did you do? So you’d better build from the top down, having your front-line leaders on autoship.
OKAY……… I CAN’T TAKE IT ………. B as in B, S as in S…………..
I’m curious, I just gotta know…. have you discovered the problem with this approach?
The reason I skipped the filler is because I didn’t want to waste your time when the real reason is in the last paragraph.
“Maybe you build a group of 1000 reps. But if you only have 100 of them on autoship, what good did you do?”
One of the very first sentences said “How Your Company Business Model Drives The Behavior In The Field”, now lets add that to the end of the message, which tells us exactly how the Business Model works; Get all of your Reps on autoship or you’ve wasted your time.
The major flaw with this business model is that the Reps are the Customers, it clearly shows that in order to get paid the most money you need to have as many Reps as possible buying products every month.
That’s the dirty secret why most people don’t make any money, they are too honest, and they have a conscience about convincing people to spend $200.00 per month on products just to be “Grand Space Commander” qualified.
GOOD GRIEF !!
So if you’re like most people you probably want to here the conclusion, so sit back and enjoy the short video.
