Do You believe there is a recruit at every party?

When you do a party in a living room or on Facebook, do you believe at least one person is sitting there:

  • Could use more money?
  • Would love to get products wholesale?
  • Would love flexible hours for their family?
  • Would love to be recognized for personal achievement?

There is at least one recruit at every party!  Ask, and you shall recruit!

Always Ask                         “Could you use some extra cash at the end of the week/month?”

Always Ask                         “Do you know of someone who has small children and would like to get out for some grownup conversation?”

Always Ask                         “Would you like to buy your products at a discount?”

Always Give                       Every Hostess the opportunity to join you.

Give someone a special gift: Share your opportunity!

Get a spiral notebook exclusively for recruiting.

In the notebook list a minimum of 25 names and phone numbers.  These are people you could recruit, past hostesses, guests, door prize coupons, or friends.  Don’t be concerned about their interest level; the goal is to list people who you would like on your team.

Never let the list get below 25!  Put every lead you get onto this list.  Because you cannot allow the list to go below 25, you will find it easier to talk to leads.  You need to keep the list at a minimum of 25. This is your RED HOT RECRUIT LIST.

The reason this works is that it eliminates the panic that hits you when you don’t have leads.  When you have 25 leads at all times, and someone says “NO,” you shrug your shoulders, and add a new name to the list and go on.

Remember SW3:  Some will, some won’t, someone is waiting for you to ask!

A pleasant side note on this approach: sometimes a name written down to fill a space may surprise you and join the Team!  Add her to the Team and find another name for your recruiting notebook!
