Today, I want to talk about how to get people on your team to sign-up for auto-ship. Let me begin by telling you that auto-ship is VERY important. It helps create volume and repeat orders in your business, exactly what you want to build and maintain your business.
Whenever possible, you should encourage your customers and team members to sign up for auto-ship. It’s not always easy to do, but it’s worth trying. I’ve found that most people who don’t order the products consistently never build a business and they don’t typically stick around very long either.
In the paragraphs below, I want to share a few tips and strategies to help you get more people on auto-ship. The tips are listed in no particular order.
Tip # 1: Explain the Importance of Auto-Ship
First and foremost, you need to explain the importance of auto-ship to each one of your team members. Explain to them WHY they should do it and what the benefits are of doing it. This might include an additional discount on the products, free shipping, not having to remember to place an order every month, etc. Remind each person that their team will do what they do and that they should lead by example. If they need to be on auto-ship to qualify for a bonus, let them know that.
Tip # 2: Help Them Get a Few Customers
If you can help each one of your team members find a few customers, they should make enough retail profit to pay for their auto-ship each month, and in most cases they won’t mind doing auto-ship if there is enough profit to pay for it.
Tip # 3: Get THEIR Team Members to Do It
One of the best things you can do to get someone on auto-ship is to get the people in their downline on auto-ship as well. This will give them the fear of loss and might encourage them to sign up themselves.
Tip # 4: Let Them Know They Can Cancel at Any Time
Make sure you let each person know that they don’t have to stay on auto-ship forever if they don’t want too. Explain to them the process of how to cancel it, in case they ever want to stop their auto-ship.
Tip # 5: Teach Them About Being a Product of the Product
Teach your team members that they have to be a product of the product, and use the products themselves if they ever intend to grow a large or profitable business. Explain to them that it’s hard to sell a product you don’t use or believe in yourself.
Tip # 6: Be on Auto-Ship Yourself
This one should be common sense. If you are a leader, and you are serious about the business, you should be on auto-ship yourself anyway! It sounds like common sense, but a lot of people mess this up. Don’t ask someone else to sign up for auto-ship if you aren’t willing to do it yourself.
The bottom line is that auto-ship is an important part of your business. You want as many of your team members and customers on auto-ship as possible. Of course, not everyone will do it, but if you follow the tips mentioned in this article you should get much better results.
