Every day is a new chance to build your business. The level of success that you achieve will be directly proportional to your willingness to accept full responsibility for your actions. There are three basic types of activities performed by members of an organization or business: result-producing activities, support activities, and housekeeping activities. Although they are all necessary and must be performed efficiently and effectively, they are not equal when it comes to where quality time is spent. The approximate time allotted should be 80 percent to result-producing activities, 15 percent to support activities, and five percent to housekeeping activities. Let’s take a closer look at result producing activities.
Result-Producing Activities: Activities that expose the Market America UnFranchise Business Development System and the Shopping Annuity to other individuals as a supplemental or alternative vehicle to relying solely on the traditional 45-Year Plan, and selling and exposing your products, goods, and services to as many people as possible. Simply put, these are the only activities that directly produce Business Volume and Internet Business Volume (IBV), which in turn produces income.
Here are 5 result producing activities that you can do each day:
How many names have you ACTUALLY contacted from your original 100 list? From the leftover names on your list to your server at a local restaurant, possibilities are all around. One of the most important aspects of being an entrepreneur is simply networking. As JR Ridinger has explained time and time again, each person leads to another. Add more beans to the jar! Each day, set a goal to make two new connections. These people may become customers, prospects, or simply lead you to someone else.
Speaking of those possibilities, strive to set at least two appointments per week. If you’re newer to the business, ask your sponsor to set in during appointments calls. It is a good idea for your sponsor to show you how by actually doing it themselves, in front of you, from their own prospects list. Then after watching your sponsor a few times and taking notes, make several appointments, and allow your sponsor to provide positive reinforcement and constructive criticism after each call. Bring your sponsor on your first few appointments and allow them to make the first couple of presentations so you can learn.
After you have had first communications, sent information, and had a one on one or two on one meeting, give them a couple of days to a week to digest the information and then check back. Follow up is key! Stay in constant communication, by phone, text, and by email. Answer all of his/her questions. Have your Senior Partner Executive Coordinator or higher UnFranchise® Level get on the phone with them by initiating a three-way call or having your Senior Partner place a follow-up call.
In order to succeed in building an UnFranchise Business, first and foremost, we must sell products by developing Preferred Customers. You as an UnFranchise Owner are an Independent SHOP Consultant. Sit down with your prospective customers and ask them if they would like to enjoy special benefits by becoming a Preferred Customer. Share the services such as Cashback, SHOP Buddy, SHOP Local, skincare analysis tool, etc. Prospective customers can sign up to become Preferred Customers through your SHOP.COM site or you can register them on your UnFranchise Business Account. Ask them about their interests and needs. Inform them that their feedback on purchases is invaluable!
If you ask any of the original UnFranchise Owners which business tool helped them the most, many will say listening to audios. Taking time to learn each day, whether from old school audios or YouTube videos, has helped so many people generate lasting success with the UnFranchise. There are tons of valuable resources available at your fingertips. Don’t forget to use them!
