Tips and Concepts to Use When Prospecting With a Cold Market

February 9, 2016

With out prospects you really have no way of increasing your success with any business whether it is marketing with an eCommerce Business, Multi Level Marketing or a Brick and Mortar Business. Prospects are the blood line for success with the mentioned industries.

When I first got into sales back in 1983, selling vehicles at a Large Dealership in Agincourt, Ontario where I worked. I asked a question to my Sales Manager, so where do I get my prospects from? He looked at me, and said l will be right back, he slammed the white pages phone book on my desk. Do you have any other questions?

I got the message, but I had a big problem, I had no education on how to prospect.  So I spoke to all my senior sales partners, but they where old school with established repeat clients, so that was a waste of human energy. We had no internet back then, so I decided to dedicate myself to this field by going to the Library and reading all the books that related to the sales industry.

I would go to the library a couple of times a week, and borrow new books that I had an interest in. I came across an author who was called The World's Greatest Salesman Joe Girard  . Wow I said to myself, I thought I had died and gone to heaven. I read and study his principles, and started to apply his concepts, tips to my daily activities. Within a couple of weeks of doing what l had studied, I started having results. I had more appointments for the week then most of the senior sales partners at our dealership.

I recall one day my Sales Manager came up to me and asked how I was getting so many appointments, when I was only a car cadet, other words a rookie. I looked at him, and said I am doing what you told me to do, using the phone book and calling prospect. What are you saying to them, so I showed him the script I had wrote and tested, to see where my results where coming from. Yes I kept records on all of my calls, created a manual file for each prospect, with names and important details, that would help me engage with them and establish credibility.

The number one tip I have learned from all of my years invested in the sales industry is still the same tip I use in 2016, this will never change, if you want results, you really have to study you're market, and when you apply this concept you will see results. Learning how to engage with your prospect without coming across like some sort of robot. God give us two ears and one mouth, which one should we use the most?

Lets not forget we as car salesmen do not have a very good reputation, so this is really one of the hardest industries to make a full time living from. The reputation of a car salesperson has drastically changed with all the new industry standards, but most people still do not trust a car salesperson.

"Short Presentation on Prospecting by Joe Girard"

That was how prospecting was conducted back then, but the approaches used have not really changed except, now we use different tools, called Social Media Marketing. Creating a brand, getting Likes to our FaceBook Page, using all types of different Social Media Levels, such as LinkedIn, Twitter, FaceBook just to name a few.  

When we are using Social Media Levels, we still need to get the most important point across, getting our prospect to engage with each other, without pitching him on the first impression, or second for that matter. This is so important, most rookies will prospect you to the point of you being spam by their opportunity, never understood why anyone would take this unsuccessful approach.  

"Here is 11 Tips for you to consider using when engaging your 
future prospects, using Social Media as your platform by Michelle Grigsby"

This is the best speaker, that illustrates what it will take to become 
the machine of endless possibilities. He spoke the wises words 
to making the switch. This took place back in 2007. 
"His one of the Best in 2016!"
Why it is in Red, You need to Learn this!
and his a Jets Fan! 

You will need to become a master of the skills you learn, the only way this is going to happen is by your practicing your script on a daily base. Keep track of what is working and what is not working, modify it so it can become a seed of endless prospects for you to work with.

Here are The Reasons on Why I have Not Updated My Blog

February 5, 2016

Life has a way of taking a hold of your time, and focusing "YOU" on a different journey. So much has happened since l last wrote a post here, some good some not so good, but how life is.

Been spending a lot of time on home improvements, since my ex wife finally moved out. We left on good terms, so that is a positive thing. Started with my kitchen, next thing l know l am painting the ceilings, walls, replacing the floors along with all the light fixtures, sink, facet, your getting the picture.

 Now the problem is the rest of the house needs my attention, so on too the bathroom same thing, living and dinning room, hallways, removed carpet replaced with hardwood, that is a job all on its own. The proper tools is a requirement, why do something if it is not your best work. Fortunately l had most of the tools to do the job with a professional finish, that l am happy with.

How the Upstairs looked like, we had to move everything to get
the below results, it was fun we ate well.
Got a lot done, bonding time, rare moment also got help!
Main Hallway Under Construction

Finished Product Living Room
Now that first floor is all completed, its on too the second floor, but before we get there l need to change the stairs from Oak to Mahogany finish. Wow have you ever sanded banisters on stairs, no fun at all.  So l paid my son to do the dirty job, and then l applied the applications to make them look totally different.

How the Stairs Use to Look Like

How The Stairs Now Look Like
The madness has not come to an end as of yet, still have second floor to finish off along with hallways, painting, drywall and all the prep time it takes for you to be ready to paint and lay down the new floor. Since my son is working from home he want me to build him a Music Studio, yes a studio so l did. What his into master and engineering music, along with performing, writing killer lyrics, with the correct beats to enhance it to another level of perfection, as well as  producing, and god knows what else. Here is a pretty kewl interview on Erik. 

Under Construction

How it will Look When It is All done
 So now l need to get back to the laundry room, replace the waste pump, then the sump pump, might as well do it all correct, replace all light fixtures. Yes l also replace furnace and the air conditioning since l got my moneys worth from both items. When l said l was updating my house l was not taking any short cuts. Had to replace all the pumps since they where pretty old, and could go at any time.

By the way, l am not looking for a part time paying job doing what l enjoy doing home improvements. Looking forward to getting this project finally done within the next three months. How it is when you do it part time.

Had my sister and girlfriend help and motivate me, see behind a successful man, 
their is always a woman, interesting.
Both woman where born on the same day unreal

You're Legacy is more Important then You're Currency

October 3, 2014

I have used this statement with many of my close partners, it has value at a level most will never truly appreciate or fully understand the true meaning of the above words.

Legacy will be the only really quality your family, friends, business associates as well for some; their partners at what ever level they trusted each other at. Sad in a sense, this is how you will be remembered once you are gone from earth. You will be judged, compared and god only knows what other words will be used to describe what you have achieved in your life.

Hard core facts, we will never have to hear about it, since we will be gone!

We are all humans, we have emotions, egos, obstacles we deal with daily like paying bills, is always one that comes in at the wrong time, most say, "are you kidding me!" Reality has it's rewards for a few of us, and so many options for others, but why do people pick the wrong ones.

Is it fair to say People Fail and well Calculated Systems will never fail, when guided correctly? The majority of the ones we encounter on our business ventures, spend more energy on why the system will not work, when they should be spending energy on why it will work. Why only 3 percent have the ability to understand why they generate what they generate financially.

Paying for our children's education should be a given, would you not agree? We will all encounter this Financial Burden, sooner or later! We decided at some time to bring him or her to become part our life's. Now they want to continue their education, but you forgot to plan for this step of raising children, oh you done a great job so far, just forgot it had a price.

We all deal with this type of obstacle, part of reality, most forget this process, but you need to understand who decided to make him or her part of the family tree? So why did we forget to plan that step, simple reason, we where not focused! We all have faults, not much more to say since we all been their once or twice!

Why it is so Important to have the correct mind set, you will eliminate many mistakes, towards your journey.

It really never matters what you are doing, what really matters is your passion towards your dreams. We all have heard what dreams, visualization; "How it Will" change your life, but again not for everyone. Reasons, it takes dedication, self improvement and, adjustments with your mind set, this is not easy stuff. But in a another forum of reality, it is easily done.

Your passion is the key to success, when you open a door, you "do need a key" if it is locked, so what you need to do is unlock your subconscious mind. This is very achievable, takes time, but we all use time differently. The leadership we provide has a way of making you think, perhaps for the first time outside you're comfort zone.

We all have done our home work, the most important language you will ever "have" to learn is an international language, the power of the numbers. Some how numbers have the ability to paint a very accurate road map, most miss this, why they jump from system to system. They never spend enough dedication in learning the system. But it's never our fault, is it?

I came across this man, a long time ago, he had a passion, a message to all who listen to him. Yes more then likely had a mission, one he has accomplished. Yes he has, changed my thinking, open my mind to endless opportunities.

How you play this options, will have an impact, on you're whys in life, we all have them! 

I watched this countless times, but I learn something new each time, probably why I listened to this man, he made sense to me. He could actually make make me want to become successful, i hope you will enjoy him as much as l have.

He is from the New York city area, his an Icon in this industry, has that ability, started at the bottom, worked his way and his vision. Now let's allow Gary to tell his story..

How to Gain Respect To Improve You're Communications Abilities

September 19, 2014

What is the bonding cement of all successful relationships be they personal, business or professional? "Respect" Once respect is gone the relationship is dead, it's like trying to hold a body without a skeletal frame work. No amount of denial, fake laughter or words of "forgiveness" will heal or mend the wound. Unfortunately once respect is lost it's almost impossible to regain. Many people think they lose respect for someone because they get angry or upset with them, but anger does not mean the loss of respect. A relationship can bounce back from anger, disagreements, and even arguments, but if you detour into a loss of respect it is usually over.

The best way I have found to deal with relationships that have gone into disrespect is simply to forgive and end them. To try and "Forgive" and continue with the relationship only causes the disrespect to continue and cause "emotional infection." Because we are human we are going to do things that will cause people to lose respect for us, and people will do things that will cause us to lose respect for them. That is simply a part of life.

You never want to lose respect for anyone, however when it does occur in business you can live, survive and continue to thrive. But never allow yourself to lose respect for your spouse or family. Let love reign supreme so that no matter what occurs you never lose respect in that arena of your life.

If you have lost respect for something or someone forgive it, bury it and move on to healing and restoration. Never under estimate the power of "Respect." It will build or destroy fortunes. Here is an interesting thing, many times losing respect for someone is due to our own personal hang ups and someone losing respect for us was by product of their own problems.

The answer I have found is to do your very best in everything you do and that way no matter how the chips fall you can walk away with your head held high. If you do that, you can live and operate in peace when the element of "Respect" fly's out the window.

If you Respect your financial future do yourself a favour and turn some of your paper money each week into superior Gold Money. Nothing feels better than saving and having that Gold stuff in your bank. When you look at your Gold you will know that you own that money, the rest of the money you earned is gone to the creditors, stores, merchants and a host of other things that you gave your money too.

How to Spend Less and Increase You're Savings with Gold

September 18, 2014

The response, excitement, hunger, requests and participation in Gold Bullion that we have been writing about has been mind blowing! Because unlike any other product line, the two things that everyone needs and wants is to save their money and earn more money. Gold Bullion and the system we use do just that. To help clarify what the "Millionaire Habit" that l so often write and speak about is, it's simply a pathway to financial freedom that comes down to the simplistic discipline of "Spending less than you earn and turning what you save into gold."

We advocate trade in the fast food, ding dongs, hot dogs, over priced coffee and soft drinks and the billion of other things that are killing and robbing you and exchange it instead for Gold Bullion. Instead of filling your lungs with smoke, your gut with junk and poisoning your liver with booze, fill up your vault with Gold!

This system and practice does not interfere with your current business or occupation, it is simply a wealth plan that works with the current income you now have despite where the income comes from. People that get upset about this I let them know it has nothing to do with leaving their products or company so therefore their rectal leakage is unnecessary.

Millions of people race off every day in the pursuit of finding financial freedom, but as you well know that path is laden with potholes of disaster. Most rush off without a proper map how to get there and go desperation, hope and excitement. That plan will kick your rear end so high up you will will look hunch back. Let me give you a true tested map that will help you navigate the pitfalls in your quest for riches. It's called "The Richest Man in Babylon" and written in 1926 by a self made millionaire who wanted to give back and help people. It has helped millions of people become financially free including myself since l read it for the first time way back in 1980 (which by the way was the year I first started in Gold Bullion.

You should read this book, no study this book like a one eye pirate studies treasure map. I have been hoarding and studying this book for all these years. If you do not have a copy of the "Richest Man in Babylon" I will send it to you for free, just go to this Mentor-ship Link to request it just Click Here

You're Personal Energy Can Create an Abundance of Wealth

September 16, 2014

Personal Human Energy is by far too valuable of an asset to waste. Therefore never waste it in arguing with people or try to convince someone who is of a different opinion. The only thing that accomplishes is resentment from both parties, frustration, energy depletion. It does not change the other person's opinions nor does it accomplish anything positive. There are far too many people who are on the same wave link we are. Invest your energy in these types of people because it actually increases your energy creates a win-win success for all involved.

The reason many people fail and lose friendships at the same time is because they are trying to make one kind seed produce another kind seed of fruit. Brain Tracy said when your friends and family tell you they are not interested in your opportunity... "Believe Them."

What good is prosperity without peace, money without management, success that comes by way of stress? There is a much better way to prosperity and success and it comes by the way of "Principal." People get lost in spending all their time in details instead of principal when they should be spending the majority of their focus on principal and the details will take care of themselves.

Money problems and pressure does not come from the economy, lack of talent and ability or a lack of education. most of the time those conditions are the result of neglecting principal, Many people have created a million dollar portfolio on a $40,000 a year income while others ended up broke and bankrupt who had a million dollar annual income.

The key to financial freedom is not how much you earn but how you "Position" what you earn. The secret is to learn how to take the money you earn and apply "Positional Equity" to it. Taking some of your paper currency that you now work so hard to accumulate and turn it into "Gold Currency" is one of the best ways to apply positional equity to your income.

Why an E Commerce Business Plan is You're Best Option

September 12, 2014

Here are 5 reasons why I love the Gold "e-Commerce Business." ( What is an e-Commerce Business? It is a business model that has all the benefits of Network Marketing and zero of the negative aspects or requirements of Network Marketing.)

1. Independent Business Partners. One of the great culprits of traditional business is the business partners you get involved with. Partnership in business can become extremely complicated, uncomfortable and even end up in litigation and the loss of the business itself. Bringing people into your circle of influence, inner circle of associations and business can be very dangerous. However an e-Commerce model each partner works exactly like traditional partners except each one is responsible for their business and if one fails to keep the business it dose not negatively affect the other partners. each partner creates their own income based on their performance.

2. No Product to Buy. Gold is a currency therefore you cannot buy it. The only thing you do is exchange inferior paper currency for superior Gold currency. It would be the same thing of taking four quarters to the bank teller and asking her to exchange it for a dollar bill. You did not buy that dollar bill you simply exchanged coin currency for paper currency. Gold is not about "Spending Money" it is about "Saving Money."

3. Saving Money. With every product on the market you have to think about it before purchase it because you having money going from you. But with Gold you are not spending money you are saving money. You do not have to "think" about or "ask permission" to save money unless you're a complete nut!

4. Income Stream. This is the only business model that I know of that actually pays you to save you're own money. It is about earning money and saving money not "Spending" money.

5. No Cost or Fees. When you open a Gold Account from Germany, there is no cost or requirements or commitments. You are given a state of the art website at no cost so that you can order your Gold whenever you want, and if you refer anyone to open up their own Free Gold Account you are paid a very generous and liberal referral fee. This is the most advanced, elite and professional business structure I have ever seen to create a financial fortune through acquiring Gold and getting paid for it.
This is how you create a financial freedom in the 21st Century. I highly recommend you give it a try.
