Success Principles | Automation
What if you could apply the success principles of leverage to your daily routine by way of automation?
I’m warning you ahead of time… this post is a little different than normal. So if you can’t handle a lot of excitement and exclamation marks!!!!!!!!! then you might as well stop reading now.
Automation. It’s the word of the day for me today because quite frankly, it’s a word I’ve never given much thought to. I suppose the only way in which I’ve ever REALLY thought about automation is in regards to residual (passive) income from my business.
Residual income is a great concept — you do the steps one time and are paid “automatically” over and over and over again as a result.
But what about automating the daily actions that lead to the residual income?
Ever thought about it? Ever actually tried it?
I’ll admit, up until recently I hadn’t. But now that this idea has caught on to me I have a feeling it’s going to be around for quite a while!
What if, as network marketers, we could automate the processes we know lead to residual income? That is, what if we could automate the prices of prospecting, presentation and duplication? What might that do to your business? How might that aid in the growth of your residual income?
I can hear what you’re saying already… “But network marketing is a people business! You can’t automate people!”
And I agree with you! Some measure of the process will ALWAYS involve talking to people. After all… the opportunity to meet, connect and form relationships with people from all over the globe is one of the many many perks to this industry. A perk you would never want to eliminate!
But what if, through automation, you were able to eliminate (or at least drastically reduce) the conversations you have with people who are not qualified, not coachable, not interested and not interesting?
What if, through automation, you were able to eliminate time-consuming sorting activities and free up your time to have real conversations with real, interested prospects?
What if, through automation, you were able to find something that works and then put it on virtual auto-drive so that your mind becomes free to explore new creative ideas?
Let me give you a real-world example:
For the past 8 months our team has been doing some targeted advertising for our business. It’s turned into a terrific source of leads and has lead to quite a bit of growth.
The only downside was the sorting.
I’m talking hundreds of dials a week to schedule 15-20 appointments to generate 5-7 quality leads.
“Oh it’s no big deal, we’re full-time network marketers!”, we said. “So what if we have to do this for a year or two? It will be worth it!”
Well how about this concept?
What if you DIDN’T have to do that for a year or two? What if you didn’t have to do it AT ALL?
What if you could automate the process so that instead of hundreds of phone calls, you are making 10-15. And what if the only people you are talking to are those who have already been to the website, seen the presentation and tried the product?
What about that?
This is not meant to be a sales pitch. I’m not really a “sales” kind of person. I’m just excited!! Because I have FOUND an online system that has made those “what ifs” a reality!
Suddenly, my time is mine again! I’m still doing just as many presentations (actually, more!) but my work day has opened up in a way that I am now able to explore other ways of building my business! I’ve been able to get back to the parts of my business I’m passionate about… personal development, blogging, connecting with new people online. I am no longer tied down by the monotonous daily tasks that weren’t really making me any money!
And you know what else I’ve been doing with my new-found time? Discovering new ways of marketing my business and learning how to automate those as well! Things that a used to take me an hour a day I am now able to accomplish in 30 minutes a month.
It’s like the more I look for automation, the more of it I find!
Seriously, I want to shout from the rooftops, “I FOUND IT!!!”
That’s how excited I am!
But you know what is even more exciting? The members of our team who have implemented this are experiencing the same thing I am! I believe that is the most exciting thing… because to me, duplication is the most important step in the 3-part formula of network marketing.
So I guess at the end of a post like this I’m supposed to put a link. That way, you can figure out exactly what I’m talking about.
So here it is, but if you’re REALLY curious about what we’re doing I’d rather you give me a call or drop me an email. That way, I can tell you about it personally 🙂
My cell phone number is 806-786-5215.
Seriously. Call me!
