Recruiting Stories Create Desire – Share Opportunity Story!

Every direct sales consultant wants to share the business opportunity and grow a team.

Recruiting comes naturally to some, but not so naturally to others.

One way for a sales consultant to create interest in the opportunity is, at the beginning of the show, to tell their personal recruiting stories….. the story of why s/he started the business.

My upline did and it planted the seed for me to start thinking about it.

Why did you join your company?

It is important to craft your story in such a way that it is interesting, to the point, and yet creates desire for what you are offering to the audience in the way of an income-producing opportunity.

Your total recruiting story should be less than a minute in length and should include:

  • What did you do before you joined This Fantastic Co.?
  • What did you like about your job and your life then?
  • What didn’t you like about your job and your life then?
  • What happened that made you decide to join This Fantastic Co.?
  • What is your life like now?
  • Finish with an invitation.

The invitation at the end can be simple:

“I invite you to watch what I do here today, and for those of you who would like to make money and have fun with “MyFantasticCompany” then just get with me after the show and I will give you more information.”

Practice your story so it becomes second nature.

Share it at your show so that you are contributing to the growth of your organization and the direct sales industry as a whole.

Your Opportunity Story Plants Seeds

The direct sales business opportunity is one of the best systems of creating income without committing to a job outside the home.

Sharing your recruiting stories at your shows is a gift that you are giving to those in the room.

Don’t feel self-conscious about it, it is planting a seed … it is a gift that keeps on giving!

How’s that sound!?

    HiDeb, Just started listening to your “Stop Recruiting… Start Sharing” series. It’s wonderful! I can learn so much while driving back from school drop-off. I highly recommend this series to direct sales professionals!

    I like the simple steps you outline to “share your story”. Makes it easy to remember, gives all the facts, and won’t take hours to do 🙂

    I’m anxiously awaiting the new program. I think I’ve purchased everything you already have available and they have been of great value. My focus for 2010 is sponsoring (I can barely believe you called it “recruiting” LOL). I’m off to a great start and know with your new program it will only get better.

    Deb, the site looks so modern now. You know I love all your programs so you better pick me to win! I am going to enter at least ten times so I am sure to get a set. I heard the last recruiting call last month so I know the program is as good as the others. This is one entry!
