Just thought I’d give you a little update…
Wow… Things are moving along so fast. Setting up a Music Challenge has given me so much perspective on what our mission is as a movement. We are simply inspiring other to set and go after a 90 day goal. I’m so blessed to be a part of this. It just so happens that 7/10 people are overweight so most goals are health related.
What is your challenge?
I have started a new 90 day challenge. Most of you know that I have been promoting the Body By Vi challenge for almost 3 years and I have been having tons of fun. I am now in the best shape of my life and I wanted to focus on the “Life” portion of the Visalus mission of “Life, Health and Prosperity.”
That is why I’ve decided to set up a 90 Days of Music Challenge. I will play and record 1 video a day with a different cover song every day for 90 days. Sounds crazy? Yes, it definitely is. Today is actually day 19 and I had no idea that it would be this challenging. It is helping me break out of my comfort zone like crazy and it is also helping me to improve my singing and guitar skills at the same time. I am VERY excited for what the future has in store for me.

I thought I’d post a training that I have been using within my team and has been producing some incredible results.
The bottom line is that you CANNOT spam people. You will be deleted by your friends and you can even be deleted from Facebook entirely.
The first step is creating your own profile. This is very simple since it is a personal profile. DO NOT include the link to your company website on your profile. This will take the control out of your hands and put it in the prospect’s hands. You need to create curiosity so that THEY ask YOU for the information.
Tips to get attention on Facebook
- Comment/Like other people’s content
- post useful links and interesting stories (either original or quotes)
- promote other people
Be sure to contact people personally and invite them to an event before you invite them to an event/group on Facebook.
Tips on contacting people on Facebook
- Ask a lot of questions
- Focus attention on them
- Never bring up your business unless asked
Tips on getting people to ask about your business
- Ask questions about their jobs/occupation
- Ask questions about the problem that your product addresses
- Post a little bit of information about your business, but not too much on your profile
Add as many people from your company and share content!
Now that you’ve gotten your name out there and you are able to have conversations, you will need to get phone numbers or you will not be able to contact them.
When someone asks you on your wall for more information DO NOT post it on your wall. This not only reduces your chances of getting a phone number from the prospect but also from all other prospects visiting your wall. Contact them in a private message and ask a question such as, “what would you like to know?”. This gives you valuable information about why they are interested and it also creates a conversation. After a few questions go back and forth, the prospect is now “invested” in the answers and they are more likely to give a phone number so that you can call them.
In summary, here are the steps:
- Create a personal profile with a lot of fun and useful information
- Inspire participation by commenting on people’s content
- Create relationships and conversations focused on them
- Ask for the best way to contact the prospect and use the system.
I hope this has been useful. Please comment, I’d love to hear your success!
The thing I love most about this video is that I’ve given trainings many times about just about every element of this compensation plan. I remember saying, “These are all the elements that would make up a perfect compensation plan, I haven’t seen a compensation plan that hit’s them all yet but I’ll let you know if I do”.
When I heard about the “Law of Diminishing Intent“, I had an Aha moment. I can remember so many times in my life where an incredible idea came to me. I got excited, started planning and had every intention to follow through. However, I often made the decision to “sleep on it” before I took the first action.
When the morning came, I started to doubt the “genius” of my plan. I often decide to get on with my day and think about it later… By the time I get to it again, the excitement has passed and I decide that it’s not really a very good idea after all and scrap it. Sure enough, months later, someone else has implemented my idea!!!
What I experienced is the “Law of Diminishing Intent”;
We intend to take action when the idea strikes us. We intend to do something when the emotion is high. But if we don’t translate that intention into action fairly soon, the urgency starts to diminish. A month from now the passion is cold. A year from now it can’t be found. – Jim Rohn
When I learned about this concept I felt incredibly cheated. I had always thought that by thinking a decision through before taking action on it, that I was making smarter decisions. I realized that by avoiding action on a new idea, I was actually virtually eliminating my chances of success. I have let so many fantastic ideas fall by the wayside.
I started to wonder… “What if I fail because my poor idea?”
It’s not that you don’t think through the idea. In fact, that is the first step. The point is to take some action on the idea immediately. Draw up plans, get it on paper, invite some friends over to brainstorm.
When intuition strikes take action now!
The longer you wait the less likely you will be to do it at all, and you will pass up many life transforming opportunities.
I feel bad that I haven’t blogged in so long. I’ve been so incredibly busy. I started building again and I’m very psyched about it. In 45 days I hit the Regional Director title with over 20k in organizational sales volume in my group. That also qualifies me for a black BMW.
I’m very happy about my progress and I am very excited about helping others accomplish even more than I have. I don’t know how much blogging I’ll be doing this month since I’m shooting for a chance at being in Success From Home Magazine. All I have to do is help enough people hit the director level. That would mean helping them to find 3 promoters and a customer at the minimum. The cool thing is that this will also earn them over $500 in commissions.
I’m very excited about this, I’ve already been able to help others in my group do it, and I’m looking forward to stepping it up.
I’m extremely excited about Facebook and it’s ability to tap into our hot and warm market as well as generate leads from the cold market.
I first got involved in Network Marketing about 5 years ago. While I was able to recruit a few people, I quickly ran out of people to talk to. I turned to MySpace at the time and had some pretty impressive success, but still I was having trouble duplicating. Ultimately, I turned to Internet Marketing for just product sales only and got out of the recruiting.
Recently, I got involved again in the industry of Network Marketing. I was waiting for a system that was as easily duplicated as people claimed, and I carefully researched for almost 2 years. There are many people who claim that they have a system, but they are misleading people. What they call a system is simply a “presentation”. Furthermore, most people have no idea how to invite people to this “presentation” so they end up tricking them or using an incentive. Obviously, this is a major turn off and no one appreciates being misled.
The system is the HOW. It is how you introduce someone to the product/business. The words you use to introduce people to the tool that presents. The system does the work!
Now, in part, because of the opportunity that Facebook offers, combined with a system that does the work, I managed to close out March with over 10k in volume… Oh… and I started promoting on the 15th… The best thing is that every single distributor that made at least 5 calls has recruited at least one customer or distributor!
Facebook offers an opportunity for your prospects to identify themselves to you. Think about how much easier it would be to make your outbound calls if the prospect is expecting your call and open, or even interested, in hearing your message. When you couple that with an actual system to recruit you will be unstoppable!
