The Time-Proven & Authoritative Network Marketing Invitation Script – Eric Worre’s Formula Revealed!

Sunday is the day to post about business–in this case network marketing.  So today we focus on invitation as a new skill.

I know I have said before how I love this business, but I want to make it clear to anyone thinking about joining a network marketing company, there is a lengthy learning curve and you have to be willing to be taught how to do the work required to make any money.  That said, the upside is that you will make money slowly at first, then as you improve your new skills, you will begin to make more and more.

The people you will meet will be genuine and will want you to be successful.  You will see that you have surrounded yourself with happy, positive people who will be willing to be supportive of you as you are learning your new skills.  And–be sure you attend any event that your company holds.  It is truly a unique experience and one you will enjoy.

This article below focuses on the invitation process which is the most basic new skill you will have to learn.  Reading this information here, you will see that inviting can be broken down into steps that are easy to learn.  The hard part will be making yourself do it.

There is a second part to this article, so be sure you read this one entirely and then click over to read the second part!

The Time-Proven & Authoritative Network Marketing Invitation Script – Eric Worre’s Formula Revealed!

invitation

In this article, we have set the stage for you to learn the formula for the network marketing invitation process from the Network Marketing Professional himself, Eric Worre.

My grandfather, God rest his soul, taught me to never stop educating myself, so being the humble man that I am, I will be the first to accept any advice from Eric or any other network marketing professionals for prospecting and gathering leads.

From my previous article written on October 8th, you learned that there are 4 Time-Proven Rules for Network Marketing Success.

These 4 rules were as follows… you must emotionally detach yourself from the outcome, be yourself during communication, have passion in what you do, and have a strong posture (if you need a refresher, visit the link above.)

Prepare Yourself for the 8 steps that are going to Skyrocket your home-based business, as stated by the Network Marketing Pro himself!

This formula can be used on the phone or face to face. It is NOT recommended to be used for texting, email or any other non-verbal communications… ONLY on the phone or face to face.

Now that we have that clear, this formula can work for your warm market prospects and cold market prospects… I will give you Eric Worre’s examples for both.

There ARE 8 Steps in the Professional Marketing Invitation

The following steps might sound complicated, but with a little practice, you will find it is an easy skill to master.

Step 1: Be in a Hurry!

Innovation, Invention, Creativity and Artistry are not the same

Today we once again get to talk about creativity.  This article I found online is useful but geared more toward business than individual use.  I went ahead and posted it here because of his definitions of each of the areas–Innovation, Invention, Creativity, and Artistry.

I may not agree with these definitions, but I do think it is useful to be thinking of these areas separately.  It is always a good thing to get straight in your mind the language you are or will be using.  We throw around words like confetti, never mind the actual definitions of said words.  It is good to get back to the basics of defining our words to enrich our speech.  So read these definitions of innovation, invention, creativity, and artistry as this author sees them.

Please read this article.  It is pretty short, but has interesting ideas to use as a jumping off place in your own journey for creativity.  Let me know what you think about this man’s definitions, won’t you?

Innovation, Invention, Creativity and Artistry are not the same

Last night I was at an event where I woman said, “I want to get in touch with my creativity. I used to paint and play music, but no longer do that.”

This got me thinking about how we throw around a lot of terms with no real clarity around what they mean.

Here are four terms that people use interchangeably.

  1. Invention, from my perspective, invention is the creation of something that previously was not in existence. The focus is not on commercial value but rather on novelty.
  2. Innovation, on the other hand, is an end-to-end process that starts with a specific problem, challenge or opportunity and results in commercial value (however that is defined for the organization).

Made a Halloween Wreath!

I have been watching so many Halloween decorating videos that I got inspired to try my hand at making my own version of a Halloween wreath.  So, first I went off to my favorite Dollar Tree to find all the fixin’s.

Halloween wreath

Dollar Tree is the greatest!

Next I had to think about exactly what I wanted to do with all this glorious stuff.  The wreath base is considerably smaller than I would have wanted, but it will have to do because I am not going to Michael’s to spend all my money!  After watching a particular video, I decided how I wanted mine to look.

  1. So I started by gluing the hanging ribbon on both sides of the base.
  2. Once that was done to my standards, I started by gluing one end of the garland to the base and then wrapping it around and around and around until it was covered.  (It took one and a half garlands to do this step)
  3. Next, I glued black and purple roses to the top of my skull.
  4. Then I glued the skull in place, being careful that I can still turn it on and off by hand.
  5. I finished by gluing one of the skeletons from the garland onto the side; I glued a black bat and lots of ugly spiders everywhere!

 

Halloween wreath

So, what do you think?  I think it turned out quite nicely.  Now I just have to remember to turn that skull on and off!  All in all, I had a great time making a Halloween wreath.

Here’s the video I watched to get inspired:

The Network Marketing Invitation Process

When I started my network marketing business many years ago, I failed because I wouldn’t or couldn’t figure out how to invite others to take a look at my business and my products.  I was afraid they would get mad at me, or would no longer like me, or I don’t know what.  Since that time, I have read and studied successful people in network marketing to try to learn how to invite the correct way.  It still makes me feel queasy at times, but I have learned that the best way to do this is by establishing a relationship and helping them solve problems with my products.

I am by no means a network marketing success story.  I am still learning and I still struggle with various parts of this business.  However, I still love it and plan to continue in this business forever.  The people you meet in this industry are so phenomenal! They are fun, friendly, helpful, and caring.  I have yet to meet anyone who does not want me to be a success in my business!

Since inviting usually is the big drawback to joining a network marketing company, I thought I’d post this article and give you a little bit of useful information to mull over and see if it will fit you.  Let me know what you think, please.

Also at his site, you will find references to other articles he has written about creativity that might be what you are looking for.  My favorite nugget in this article is about Green Eggs and Ham, but you may find something else more to your liking than that.

Creativity: 
How to Unlock Your Hidden Creative Genius

Mastering Creativity by James Clear

Read this guide and discover the creative strategies of the greatest artists, musicians, and writers in the world—Pablo Picasso, Franz Kafka, Dr. Seuss and many more.

The full guide is packed with 36 pages of information on how creativity works, how to overcome the mental blocks that all artists face, and how to make creative thinking a habit.

creative-process

What is Creativity?

Let’s define creativity.

The creative process is the act of making new connections between old ideas or recognizing relationships between concepts. Creative thinking is not about generating something new from a blank slate, but rather about taking what is already present and combining those bits and pieces in a way that has not been done previously.

While being creative isn’t easy, nearly all great ideas follow a similar creative process. In 1940, an advertising executive named James Webb Young published a short guide titled, A Technique for Producing Ideas.

Young believed the process of creative connection always occurred in five steps.

The Creative Process

  1. Gather new material. At first, you learn. During this stage you focus on 1) learning specific material directly related to your task and 2) learning general material by becoming fascinated with a wide range of concepts.
  2. Thoroughly work over the materials in your mind. During this stage, you examine what you have learned by looking at the facts from different angles and experimenting with fitting various ideas together.
  3. Step away from the problem. Next, you put the problem completely out of your mind and go do something else that excites you and energizes you.
  4. Let your idea return to you. At some point, but only after you have stopped thinking about it, your idea will come back to you with a flash of insight and renewed energy.

From fail to success–New Project!

Okay, I wrote about my failure with paper clay while trying to make an angel votive candle holder last week.  This week, I want to show how I turned failure into a success by being too stubborn to quit!

 

 

So I left this story with almost burned Sculpey clay angels.  I decided to paint them with acrylics and matte medium to cover up the scorched parts and it worked just fine!  The next step was to assemble the votive candle holder by gluing the various parts together.  For this I used Aileen’s Tacky Glue because it will glue anything!

 

 

 

I decided to add glitter to the final project to give it some bling, but I am not too taken with the look.  If I ever make this again, I will leave the glitter out.

The final product really turned out better than

I envisioned, but it is far from perfect.  My daughter asked me “What is it?” when I sent her a picture, so that should tell you something.  Anyway, I think it turned out as good as I could expect and I got to use some really old supplies–didn’t have to buy anything to make this–and that is always a good thing.

I will probably set this out on the table come Christmas to see if it adds to the festive air.  What do you think of this Christmas Angel votive holder?  Should I try again or is this still a FAIL?

I did have fun making it, so it can’t be a total fail.

Finding Network Marketing Success

Here is an article about making a success of Network Marketing.  There are many fine articles out there about this subject and this is just one of them.  I like this one because the author speaks directly, clearly, and bluntly.  He makes a point that MLM or network marketing is a “business” and as such will require effort, time, and patience.

If you do read his entire article, take a minute to sign up for his FREE Mastermind Training Webinars.  This author not only speaks the truth, he is willing to help you find your way also.

I have just started reading his articles, and believe me, I will be checking out his other writings very carefully.  I hope this helps you make your decision.  Being in business for yourself is really the only way to go, but only if you understand the work.  I like that his first point is to educate yourself about the business.  Makes perfect sense to me.

Let me know what you think of this article, won’t you?

Finding Network Marketing Success

When you’re taking the steps down the network marketing road you’ll have plenty of decisions to make.  Some of these decisions are absolutely vital for your success.  And of course, there are plenty of things that you’ll want to understand in order to find network marketing success.  Among them are several things that you should learn before you even get started.

  • Get Educated – Preparation and education will lay the groundwork for network marketing success.  You’re making an investment in your future, and that’s not something you should just dive into without learning more about it.  Take the time to understand network marketing if you want to succeed at it.
  • Choose Wisely – Take the time to identify the different network marketing opportunities that will work right for you.  There are plenty of products out there for those interested in making money, but you need to choose those that fit your overall client base and match your interests somewhat.
  • Make Multiple Choices – In other words, diversify.  Don’t just stick with selling beauty products, for example.  Spread out into wellness, travel, and other areas of network marketing.  The more diverse your MLM streams are the more likely it is that you’ll move towards network marketing success.  That’s because you’ll actually be able to target different client bases, attract more team members, and make more money overall.
