You'll get more sales and sign-ups by appealing to emotion than by appealing to logic. Your web site, sales letters, video/audio tapes and other sales tools should dramatizerepparttar emotional rewards your prospect gets from using your company's products -- or by becoming a distributor in your downline. For example, to promoterepparttar 102641 business opportunity, describe how a successful distributor spends his or her ideal day. Create a burning desire to begin enjoying this lifestyle.

TIP: Evaluaterepparttar 102642 effectiveness of sales tools available from your company or upline. If they don't produce results for you, develop your own. I know many MLM distributors who get a much higher response from postcards they created than fromrepparttar 102643 postcards supplied by their company.


Many prospects procrastinate after they makerepparttar 102644 mental decision to sign up with you. They get distracted by other things. Their interest begins to fade and they never do it. You can avoid losing them by rewarding immediate action and penalizing procrastination. I know of one distributor who refunds his sign up bonus to new distributors -- but ONLY if they sign up within 48 hours of receiving his "special offer".


Most prospects won't take actionrepparttar 102645 first time they investigate your offer. That's why it's important to collect repparttar 102646 contact information I mentioned in Step 2.

Follow up with new prospects every few days forrepparttar 102647 first week. If they don't sign up, store their names and addresses and follow up with them every month duringrepparttar 102648 next 6 months. You can often double your business volume by following up with prospects.

Copy this 5 step selling system to generate both new customers for your company's products and new distributors for your downline. It's highly effective. It's very low cost. And it works both online and offline.
