I recently watched a great training video with a Nikken Royal Diamond. He shared some of his best tips and wisdom for building a successful business.
I figured I would share some of the valuable lessons he shared, plus add my own thoughts to each lesson. Each lesson is in bold. Keep in mind I am in NO WAY affiliated with Nikken.
Nikken Royal Diamond Success Tips
# 1 Who can I recruit who is better than me and more successful than me?
I love this advice. Sponsor up whenever possible. Seek people at your level of motivation and higher. Look for people who are already successful at what they do. Look for people with credibility and contacts. Focus on people who would do good at the business, rather than people who NEED the business.
# 2 Create your business plan and calendar.
Just like any other business you need a written business plan. You also want a day planner, so you can plan your work and work your plan. Whatever you do, don’t “wing it” in the business. Get organized, set a work schedule and stick to your business hours.
# 3 Give people a product experience as quickly as possible.
Get your new customers and distributors using the products as quickly as possible. Demo some products with them so they can see what the products are all about.
# 4 Follow up with everyone you talk to within 24 to 48-hours.
The fortune is in the follow-up. The longer you take to follow-up with people the more likely they will not be interested. In addition, most of your prospects will need multiple follow ups before they buy or join.
# 5 Activate people with products, tools and events.
Get your new people plugged in as quickly as possible. Share the business tools with them, explain your system and get them to attend events as quickly as possible.
# 6 Use the products yourself and be on auto-ship.
Be a product of the product. It’s hard to sell a product you don’t even use yourself. Be your own best customer. Use ALL of your company’s products.
# 7 The only thing you can control is your personal efforts.
We have no control over what our team members or prospects do. We can only control our own personal activity. Focus on that and lead by example at all times. Do the things you want your team members to do.
# 8 Help people get a check as quickly as possible.
Most of your team will quit in the first month or two if they haven’t earned a check yet. Tap into your new team member’s warm market as quickly as possible, so you can help them find a few customers and distributors.
# 9 Launch with momentum.
This is a business of momentum. Take your business seriously by taking massive action and having a sense of urgency. Make your first 90 days as good as possible, so you have a great story to share with prospects.
# 10 Keep sponsoring new people to find leaders.
This business is a numbers game. Never stop personally sponsoring new reps. Make it a goal to sponsor two to four new business builders each and every month FOREVER. This is ultimately a leadership business.
# 11 Help people get what they want so you can get what you want.
Take your eyes off yourself and focus on helping each of your team members accomplish their own goals. The more people you help do that the more money you make in the business.
# 12 All businesses have cycles.
All businesses have ups and downs. Nothing grows continuously forever. Be in the business for the long haul. Compare your business from year to year, not month to month. Learn how to take the good with the bad. And realize you can always increase your profit by increasing your activity.
# 13 Leaders are passionate about serving others and getting paid!
The best leaders in our industry are servant leaders. They focus their time, money and attention on helping others become successful.That’s why they make the big bucks.
