What is the key to making money with Advocare? Actually, it’s quite simple. To make money with Advocare, you must do three things. You must have retail customers, you must sponsor new distributors, and you must build a team of people who do the same thing. While you can make money just by selling the products or just by sponsoring others, I truly believe it is a wise move to do BOTH of these things at the same time. We will cover these success tips in more detail below.
First and foremost, you need to find retail customers for your Advocare business. All businesses need customers. Retail customers purchase the products from you at the suggested retail cost. This puts immediate profits in your pocket and gives you money to reinvest back into your business.
I recommend you try to find at least 10-20 personal retail customers who will reorder from you every month BEFORE you try to sponsor people into the business. The more customers you can get, the more money you can make. More importantly, teach your team members to do the same thing. If I had to choose between having lots of customers or distributors I would choose customers.
In most cases, you will make more from customers than you will from distributors. You see, most of the people you sponsor as distributors will only stick around 60 to 90 days before they quit the business, so there is little residual income with team members. Yes, there are a few exceptions, especially if you sponsor a really good distributor, but that doesn’t happen very often.
However, if you can find a good customer who really loves the product, they will stick around much longer than most distributors will. All you have to do is treat them well, stay in touch and provide great customer service.
For some reason, most distributors are only taught to focus on sponsoring. I think that is a BAD move. Here’s why. If you talk to 100 people about starting their own network marketing business, you might be lucky and find three to five people who are interested (if that). However, talk to those same people about the products, or the benefits of getting healthy and you should easily be able to find at least 20 customers. NOTE: Individual results will vary.
The key takeaway is that more people are receptive to products that can help them, than they are to a business opportunity.
Focus on getting happy customers and upgrade your happy customers into distributors. That is my best advice. Happy customers make great distributors.
Next, I recommend you personally sponsor 20 to 40 distributors as quickly as you can, preferably in your first six months (do this by upgrading customers into distributors) and by approaching business minded people about the business opportunity. When you do sponsor distributors, you can earn overrides and commissions from their sales. Also, if you sponsor 40 people, you will probably find 4 to 8 distributors who are really serious about their Advocare business, and will want to build a big team themselves.
Most of your earnings will come from your serious distributors. Remember the 20/Rule. Eighty percent of the people you sponsor will do little or nothing. Most of these folks will fizzle out within their first 90 days. Some will stick around as product users.
In order to sponsor 40 people, you will probably need to personally show 200 to 400 presentations presentations, maybe more. In order to do 200 presentations, you will probably need to set 400 appointments. In order to do 400 appointments you will probably need to talk with 1,000 people. If you would to sponsor your 40 people in six months, you would just need to approach five people a day (5 x 182 = 910). The bottom line is to work the numbers.
Once you know the numbers, you simply need to work the numbers to your advantage. It’s amazing what you can accomplish in one year with focused daily effort. Knowing what to do is almost half the battle.
Furthermore, as you grow your team you must work in depth, at the bottom most point of your organization. In other words, you must help your personally sponsored distributors build a team. This is the real key to success to making BIG money with Advocare. Ideally, you want to drive each leg of your organization at least 20 levels deep as quickly as possible. By doing so, you will find additional leaders in depth to work with.
Remember, the width of your organization determines your profitability, but the depth in your organization provides the long-term security. Most of the top earners in Advocare have thousands of people in their team and they earn a little bit from each person’s efforts. More importantly, they did not personally bring all of these people into the business. They sponsored 20 to 40 like we talked about earlier (or maybe more) and then they focused on helping their team succeed.
By focusing on these three activities, you will succeed at making money with Advocare. You will have immediate profits in your business, you will build up a nice residual income, and you will potentially earn leadership and advancement bonuses from the company. Your key to success is consistency. Get started, be consistent and never quit!
Additionally, make sure you spend MOST of your time on these money making activities: prospecting, showing the plan, acquiring customers, following up, and training your team. To the best of my knowledge, these are the only activities that put money in your pocket! Cleaning your office, sorting files, watching YouTube videos, attending conference calls and webinars, and surfing the internet do not count as time worked in your Advocare business.
