Running a success opportunity meeting can play a huge role in helping to build your business. It’s a key part in helping your team discover more about the LifeWave opportunity and products, and ultimately will help you grow your own business. Meetings ultimately help your team gain the confidence and business knowledge they need to create success in this great LifeWave business.
Tip #1 Make sure the venue works for you and your guests
If you are holding a meeting in a venue other than your home, make sure the location:
- Is centrally located, ideally near public transportation
- Has enough parking on-site or on the street
- Has all of the seating and equipment you need, including a projector and screen, before you put a deposit down.
If you do decide to hold the meeting in your home:
- Make sure you have adequate space and chairs to seat people.
- Can people can find your home? (Put a LifeWave sign outside the door or at your mail box to let them know they have arrived at the correct location)
- If you are serving refreshments after the meeting, keep it super simple!
Tip # 2 Remember it is ALL about Your Guests
The purpose of holding this meeting is to show prospective members the benefits of LifeWave, whether better health or a vehicle to greater wealth. It is a platform to not only explain how LifeWave has changed your life, but more importantly how it can change theirs. As you show them the X39™ video and the new business opportunity power point… as you perhaps “patch” them to help relieve some of their pain, you want them to be asking you buying questions at the end: “How much does it cost to get started?” “Can I work part time?” “Can I try X39™?” “What is on the APP?” If they are asking those types of questions, they are ready to move forward. A series of steps forward lead to them joining because they have sold themselves!
Tip #3 Use Testimonials Effectively
If possible, involve other members of your team and have them give their personal testimonials about why they choose to become part of LifeWave. If you don’t have anyone else on your team there, make a presentation of testimonials from the LifeWave website, and you can show them or read through them. It is amazing how powerful testimonials can be when heard. Just make sure the testimonials you feature are relevant for the group to which you are presenting.
TIP # 4 Have a Call to Action
Make sure when you close the meeting you have a call to action. This can be a soft-sell approach that moves them to their next exposure to LifeWave (try X39™, download the APP, meet again over coffee, etc) or a more pointed close (“If you were to get started today, which position do you think makes more sense, Gold or Diamond?”… “Are you interested in trying X39™ or do you already see yourself building a team?” “How many people do you know that could use X39™? Let’s make a list!”) People like to be led. They will sense your confidence in LifeWave and follow you as long as you make sensible suggestions or ask the right questions.
Tip #5 Follow up
Finally, follow up on everyone who attended your meeting, including your distributors. This is an area where many fall down! They invite a new prospect to a meeting, successfully have them ready to take a next step, and then they wait for the person to ring them?!?! Being passive like that will not lead to the success you want! Lay the proper ground-work at the meeting so they expect your follow-up call or email. Of course everyone is different. You will tailor your follow-up to what occurred the night before. But do it well at the meeting and people will be glad you called the next day. Be prepared as described herein and you will be surprised how fast your business can grow!
