Question: My upline keeps telling me to make names lists and attend meetings, isn’t that the “old way” of doing business?Question: my upline keeps telling me to make names lists and attend meetings, isn’t that the old way of doing business?

Answer: Yes, but it still works

I have spent a lot of time this week calling leads I purchased. With an ibo we have taken turns calling on these premium leads. It has been fun because I have done a lot of cold calling in my life. However it is a lot of work and after many hours of calls we have some interested prospects. But make no mistake about it, we will have a lot of work still to get these prospects to become ibo’s.

The same time we are making cold calls on leads we are also making his names list amd calling his friends and family. We are having more success with the “old way” without question.

Meetings are good for belief, one on one meetings still build your base and your upline is still a powerful tool that deserves edification.

I believe in social networking. I use twitter to notify ibo’s of meetings and good thoughts. I love facebook but I don’t overdo it. I don’t invite ibo’s to know about how I brush my teeth or when I like to go to bed. The new technologies are good but the old way is still fastest.

Build your list, go to meetings for inspiration and don’t quit. You can succeed at this business.

Answer: Yes, but it still works, and if it works, why fight it.

I have spent a lot of time this week calling purchased leads with an IBO. We have taken turns calling on these premium leads so he has an idea of how to cold call. It has been fun because I have done a lot of cold calling in my life, however, it is a lot of work and after many hours of calls we only have a few interested prospects. We also know that we will have a lot of work to get these prospects to become IBOs.

Meetings are good for belief, one on one meetings still build your base and your upline is still a powerful tool that deserves edification.  So many times, IBOs want to shortcut time-tested methods that still work today with new technologies.  I recommend that people not give up on what has worked for many years.  Friends, family and acquaintences have always been a good place to start.  You will feel very bad if you go to a meeting and see a friend has joined the business with another person.

I believe in social networking. I use twitter to notify IBO of news and good thoughts. I love Facebook but I don’t overdo it. I don’t invite IBOs to know about how I brush my teeth or when I like to go to bed. The new technologies are good but can be abused.  When things are abused, they stop being effective and simply become white noise.

Build your list, go to meetings for inspiration and don’t quit. You can succeed at this business.
