Hey! How are you today?
You know when I first started trying to make money online, I had figured out a way to make craigslist ads and get people to respond back to me. I paid $40 a week for those ads and got calls literally all day long. I was on the telephone eight hours a day at least talking to people constantly. I knew that Alan my mentor did not spend hardly any time on the phone and so I knew I was doing something wrong. I dreamed of the day when I could only have to email people back! LOL.
When I started as a GDI team leader in 2018, the GDI auto responder messages open my eyes to show me how emailing only was a possibility instead of talking to people on the phone. As I was able to build my team from 6 to 15 to 35 to 65 and now over 103 just from email correspondence (145 if you count PMS).
You have to understand that Sales always includes know like and trust. If you don’t build these three ingredients into everything you do you won’t succeed in anything. Business is all about building relationships.
I wanted to share this with you because in step nine, Elizabeth and I put down a whole section on what to say and how to respond to your email prospects and team members. And of course I am here to help you to know what to say and how to say it. I’ve been sending you the forward emails from people who are interacting with me that are also on your team and that’s why I’m writing you this email so that you understand why I’m sending you these emails and that it’s just a learning process. I have about 35 structured email template responses now and I just edit them a little for what message I need to send to people. Of course people always are asking questions outside the box so I keep growing my templates haha
And you know with every email I add personal things to it to let each person know that I care.
Once you have a team under you with team leaders etc, you will get sales from all over the place and not know who the people are or how they got there! But that takes time to build. I also spent 8 hrs writing an fun article that I want to share with people this week because that’s what I love to do (write and do creative things)
You know everything worthwhile in life takes time and energy as you know and a dedication to “water what you grow and “pluck out the bugs” haha
Everyone wants to earn the easy way without work and without growth and without learning.
Anyway, I hope you’re well and let me know if you have any thoughts, concerns or ideas!
