How do you get the attention of your sponsor?
In short…produce results!
If your sponsor is making money and successful to some degree they probably are not going to be the type to babysit their team members and answer technical questions and there’s a simple reason for that…we get paid to produce (sell & recruit) not to become customer service agents or customer support desks.
If you’re new you might be thinking ‘James shouldn’t I be helping everyone on my team?’ and that’s exactly the question I was asking when I first got started and in fact I did try and help someone when I first got started.
A new team member asked me to set up some code on her Facebook page and from that day forward I’ve never done such a thing again!
It took over an hour of my time and I felt dumb for doing it, answering questions stopped me from producing and being an example to my team!
Because if you’re in this business you’re in business for yourself…if you don’t sell you don’t eat 🙂
Your results are your own responsibility and not that of your sponsor….they have their own business to take care of.
Also I believe that by helping your team with stuff your teaching them to get bogged down, make less money and drive themselves nuts whilst also teaching their team to…get bogged down, make less money etc….
A good sponsor will be able to refer you to the appropriate resources if you ask for help and they will most likely be having their own team weekly/monthly webinar/gatherings where training can be taken care of in a group setting (way more time leverage)
So here’s how I think is the best way to get the attention of your sponsor…
1) Attend all their live trainings and events and make yourself known
2) Produce your own results
3) Fix your own problems
4) Never complain, whine or moan to your sponsor (this will get their attention but the wrong type of attention!)
5) Set the same example for your team
And don’t worry about your new team members….most of the stuff we promote has its own trainings/set up guides and this is the initial test. If someone can’t make it through the set up phase they’re probably better off doing something else!
