Hey and welcome!
We are talking about how to build a big team without chasing your friends and family or anyone for that matter. If you are looking to build on social media, we are going to give you the steps on how to do that.
My name is Brandy Shaver, and what I do is help business owners, entrepreneurs, people who build teams and move products, how to do it using social media without going crazy and spending all the time on your phone.
So how do we start building a team without chasing friends and family or anyone for that matter using social media?
You are going to want to provide value for your niche. Okay? You've got to figure out who your perfect prospect is. There's a lot of different companies out there, lots and lots of different people that would be your perfect prospect.
So you've got to figure out who your perfect prospect is. That means that there's probably going to be a perfect prospect for you or the team. So you're going to have two avatars that you're going to be working towards. Figure out who that is and then start to provide value for those people.
When I say provide value, what comes up in your mind? It's definitely not posting pictures of products, talking about just joining your team and all of those things. Value is anything that provides education, inspiration, and motivation for other people to do what they want to do. And that's where it's really cool to get clear on your perfect prospect, because once you clear on that piece, then you're what your value is.
I can give you an example, one of my perfect prospects is a struggling network marketer, and I look for a very specific person. So what I would be doing is providing value for that specific person.
Well guess what? This training is valuable for that specific person. Does that kind of put the dots together for you?
So make sure that you understand what value is and who you're speaking to.
You want to serve others without an agenda. I just had a conversation with a girl in one of my coaching programs. And she's very concerned with the money that she spent for mentoring. She's got an auto ship. She invested in the business, all of these things to grow at another income source. And of course, it's very smart to be concerned about your bottom line.
However, when you're concerned about your bottom line, you're focusing in on the debt and all the things that you spent and you're like stressed out about it that comes across to people. I remember when I started building my business, when I was brand new, just started online. I was in that same boat. I remember feeling this anxiety that I had to enroll you. I HAD to get my next customer because bottom line, I needed to make some money.
I'm sure if you're reading this, that you've been in a place, if you're not there right now that you felt the same way. What really changed for me is I was listening to one of my mentors and they were talking about how you can serve others without an agenda.
I was like, well, what does that mean? Because if I wanted to build a business, I needed to get people that want to buy my product and enroll in my team. Right?
Well, here's the thing. I decided I was going to take that mentor's advice. And I was going to start to serve others no matter where they were. No matter if they were a great fit for my team or whether they needed my product, I was going to help them with what they needed. This changed my entire business. Like seriously, once I moved to this servant mentality where it was no longer about me.
In fact, it's never been about me. It's always been about the person on the other side or the person that I'm talking to.
It's always been about them. That's how we grow a business. That's how we grow a team.
And that's how we move product, by serving other people. So really focusing on how you can serve them. And you know what, I just had a call with a guy yesterday, great guy, right. We talked about kind of where he's wanting to go, what questions he had about maybe doing affiliate marketing, maybe looking at network marketing, you know, like what his options were. And really honestly, like what I'm doing in my current company is probably not the best fit for him. And I felt that. And so I didn't push it. In fact, I didn't even bring it up. I was just there to serve him and answer his questions, give him my perspective, share with him some of the stories of me growing my business and some of his options. Because there are a lot of options on how to build a business online, whether it's affiliate or network marketing or coaching.
There's a lot of options and he needs to decide for himself. And so when I switched my thinking to just serving that person, instead of worrying about enrolling them in my team, that's when all the money started to flow.
I know you've probably heard this from other mentors or other people in the space and it's true.
So really start to take the focus off of you and start to serve your perfect prospect.
Focus on being grateful for each conversation and each opportunity to serve up. And this is one, is one of the main keys that will totally change your business.
Because yesterday I could have been a little bit irritated with this guy, right. That he wasn't a fit for my team, but what purpose would that do for me? Instead, I was focused on how I could serve him. And I was very grateful that I was the one that got to do it. The great thing about it is when you are grateful for the opportunities and the people that are put in your life for whatever reason, you get more and more and more of those opportunities.
So always counting your blessings is a great way to say it. To be grateful for each conversation and opportunity to serve others is a really, really great way to grow your business.
If you got value out of this training let me know!
Have a great rest of your day and we will talk next time.
