If you want a great sales organization to emulate, you only have to look as far as your local church. Consider these points:

PRODUCT OR SERVICE: What does a church have to offer, but faith? They sell faith to millions of members nationwide. This is not a tangible. It is not even like a life insurance policy. A life insurance policy leaves money for your family when you are gone. Faith leaves only hope. If they can get people to buy faith alone, shouldn't you be able to sell people your opportunity or products?

FREE DISTRIBUTORS: Religious organizations have many thousands of organization members out beatingrepparttar bushes each week, trying to bring in new recruits. Best of all, they do all this without compensation! If religious organizations can fire up thousands of people to go out and promote their interests for free, why is it you have so many problems firing up your downline when they get paid for their efforts?

How is it a religious organization is able to accomplish these feats? It is simple. They have it down to a system. One that has been tried and proven for centuries.

Take your typical church service. Almost all of them arerepparttar 127327 same. They start out with singing to getrepparttar 127328 crowd fired up and motivated. Then they immediately hit them withrepparttar 127329 collection plate, whenrepparttar 127330 excitement ofrepparttar 127331 singing will insure they are willing to giverepparttar 127332 most. They then follow up withrepparttar 127333 sermon, which usually has a fiery message and a strong close, and then almost beg those who are willing to join to come on down and sign up!

Why is it most church services are so similar? Because, it works! Wouldn't this be a good model for an opportunity meeting? Of course,repparttar 127334 singing might be a little awkward, but you could replace it with a very strong motivational speaker.
