Ok, we’ve heard it all before. “Join now and we’ll build it for you”, or “Join our downline building club and you’ll get rich”. In fact, I receive several emails per day promising some variation of these statements. I’m sure you’ve seen them too. Let’s be completely honest. I’ve even fallen for several of these lies and scams myself, and you guessed it, not one of them made me rich.
I’ll agree, an automated system would be great, but the truth is that it will never provide a long-term successful income. You see, people want to work with people, not web sites or emails, and with a failure rate of nearly 98%, there’s no debate that something is not working as promised.

Always keep in mind that it should be based on their needs and not yours. If they honestly feel that you’re there to help them they will be much more receptive. People are much more attracted to a teacher than a salesman.
The presentation is where most systems fall apart. Remember, automated presentation systems do nothing when it comes to building a relationship. People not only want to hear about the company, product, and pay plan, but more importantly they need to know that they can succeed and they need to see that you have a simple, effective system in place that will help them. The key however, is not presenting to prospects one on one. The leaders are presenting to literally hundreds of people per day via a simple tool called the conference line.

Finally, develop a Mastermind team. This is simply a group of 2 or more people with a common mindset. There is power in numbers and when you develop a strong Mastermind group your business will explode. Brainstorming with your team will result in a more streamlined
