August 2017 Advocate Share

August 2017 Advocates Share
This month's Advocates Share features a stand out Wellness Advocate from July 2017. 



Holly Miller is a Platinum wellness advocate living in Colorado. She's been enrolled in doTERRA for 4 years. Holly is my inspiring upline and has amazing wisdom to share. Here she shares her tips on achieving massive enrollments.


Massive enrollments and LRP follow ups 

For me the key to massive enrollments is simply a numbers game!  The more people you put yourself in front of the more chances you have to get enrollments.  

How to get in front of a lot of people:

Booths!!  
I tend to do a lot of booths, simply because I like it,  I like people, I like to interact with people, I love to see a new person be exposed to our oils for the first time, I am passionate about my business and about helping others!  Doing booths can be the fastest way of sharing with the largest amount of people in the shortest amount of time.  You also have to be doing the right type of booth.  I tend to pick booths that are geared towards people looking for what I have to offer.  Metaphysical, holistic, healing, alternative, etc. are booths that will drive like minded people to.  Now, don’t get me wrong, I have done extremely well at small Farmer’s market type of booths as well, but those will be more challenging to find the right buyer!  BUT, if you had the choice of doing a farmer’s market (or the like) booth or doing nothing at all, obviously getting your name out there, exposing more potential customers/business partners is going to be worth doing.  Plus they tend to be much less expensive too!  

Use your oils in public!!  Sounds crazy right, use your oils…..  I can’t tell you how many conversations have ensued simply because I use my oils!!!  Imagine talking with someone and during the conversation you take out a peppermint beadlet and pop it in your mouth to then quickly offer them one as well “would you like a peppermint breath mint?  They’re amazing” – to then carrying on your conversation about whatever!!!  Do you think that experience is going to have them asking you some questions???  Of course it is!  Viola, now you have just opened up a reason to get their phone number, to schedule a time to sit and chat, zoom or whatever!!!  AND yes, GET THEIR number, don’t just hand them a business card, yours will just end up in the land fill like the millions before you!  

Schedule classes from classes!  Now, I have to admit, this is NOT my strong point, but I do know that if done right they are VERY effective!  If you can capture all the attendees information upon arrival offering door prizes etc. you can also ask to the point questions, knowing exactly who would be interested in hosting a “class” with a group of their friends and family!  Maggie is the queen of this method!  Ask her how she does it, borrow her ideas for materials she uses, etc.

Cold call!!  Scary right???  Yep, may be a scary thing to do, but really what do you have to lose??  They don’t know you!!  So, tips before picking up the phone, know your potential customer….  I tend to target businesses that I know I can add value to, ie: Spas, wellness centers, chiropractors, day care centers, Yoga studios, etc.  I then go online and do a little bit of research – find out who the owners or decision makers are, what their mission statement is, how they got started, etc.  I then have something I can reference when asking to schedule 10 minutes with them.  It works really well, if you can connect with them on a personal and professional level, the more you know about them, the better!

Ask for references from your customers!  Do it!!!  If you went to a restaurant and had a great meal and they asked if you would refer them, would you???  Especially if there is something in it for you, like a $5 coupon off your next meal!!!  Ask yourself, do you give amazing customer service??  If the answer is Yes, then why are you holding yourself back from asking a favor of them???  Trust me, people love “doing favors” for others, it makes them feel good!!

I am sure I must be missing some other great ways to get massive enrollments, but for now, this is going to give you a good start!

Follow up LRP’s

Schedule your follow up with them at the same time you enroll them!!!  Show them from the moment you meet them that you are going to be their personal support by booking your time just for them!!!  Let them know that during this time you will be there to answer all their questions, show them the ins and outs of their area on the internet, how to use that place to look up oils, get the best bang for their buck, be part of the oil of the month club, etc.  

Incentivize them!!  Be prepared to help them get on LRP and send them a gift for doing so!!!  It doesn’t even have to cost you money, maybe just some time – ie: AromaTouch Technique!!!  How amazing are these??  People LOVE them!  If you are not yet certified, I strongly urge you to find the nearest class to you and get it done!!  You could also send out inexpensive gifts like an empty roller bottle and a recipe guide on different remedies, or a oil keychain, sample packets, etc.  The sky’s the limit, this is your business, take control and have FUN!!

Do what you say you’re going to do!  If you tell them you are going to call them, you darn well better pick up the phone and make the call!  You will lose more customers/business partners faster than you can say LRP if your word is of zero value!!!  Be your own best person – ASK yourself, would you follow you???  If the answer is no, then you’ve got some work to do!!!  

That’s all I’ve got for now!  Until next time, oil up and be happy!!!  

Gratefully,

July 2017 Share

 July 2017 Advocates Share
This month's Advocates Share features a stand out Wellness Advocate from June 2017. 

How do you respond when everything seems to be falling apart? Life pressure is no joke, and depending on your circumstances, pressures can be overwhelming. Is there any silver lining to life pressure or is it destined to pull down your business? What do the top leaders in the business know about dealing with life pressure?

When disastrous or depressing situations come into your life, there is an opportunity in the midst of the pressure. Pressure pushes out everything that is on the inside out, and it is a chance to clean up our inner messes when they are most visible.

When things are going well it is easy to skate through life, not addressing internal turmoil or damaging belief systems that are holding you back. When pressure is applied those same damaging belief systems tend to bubble to the surface.

It is in these moments we have a chance to address them fully. To step away from other "must do's" and turn our attention to our inner self. While we all may seek normalcy in life, if we just hole up during these times, we miss and incredible opportunity to improve ourselves in preparation for the next upswing.

How are you using the pressures in your life? To stop you? Or to serve you?

Aleena Steele is a Premier wellness advocate from Keymar, MD. She's been enrolled in doTERRA since January 2014. Aleena enrolled an incredible 10 wellness advocates in June. Here Aleena writes about a recent mental shift that made all the difference for her in her business.



Consistency or Mind Shift?


  As I was thinking about what to share, I reflected over the last few months. Since April, I’ve finally gotten back to Premier after almost a year of sitting at Elite. I’ve held that rank every month since and hit it earlier each month. July makes for my 3rd month in a row with 10 or more enrollments. Please don’t think of me as boasting, but I reflected on that and thought “How in the world has this happened when I feel like I’m doing the same thing I have been doing all year?!”
  I’ve taught 2 classes a month. Had at least 4 one on one’s. Done a booth every quarter. Made my two contacts a day. Mentor calls each month. All of these activities are part of the basics we learn and all very important to growth. So what changed? At first I was thinking I was being more constant, but when I really tracked my daily work habits, that didn’t seem to be it (well, maybe a smidge). What I really noticed was two big shifts in my mind set.
  The first was asking for help. This seems simple and somewhat unnecessary. Believe it or not, I never had a launch class in the first 2 years of building. I never had anyone else teach with or for me. I happen to love public speaking and teaching about oils was another opportunity to do just that. I ran with my business and did well enough. But after being stuck at Elite longer than I wanted, I started wondering what else I could be doing to help get me growing again. My wonderful mentor thought a launch class was a great idea and one of our great up lines offered to teach for me. I hated the idea of anyone driving out of their way to teach a few classes for me and that was the block. I didn’t see myself as worthy of others putting in effort for me and that translated into my not doing well because I didn’t see myself as worthy to do well. So, in agreeing to let someone pour into my business, it propelled me forward. It gave me a push to contact people on my “chicken list”. Reach into places I had not thought of and get great help with placements and structure. So whether or not you “need help”, ask for a help any way. And let someone pour into you!
  The second was a talk with my mom about my business. I talk with my on mom the phone most every day. She lives out of state. When I first started my direct sales business over 2 years ago, I remember her saying that it was ok if I didn't have a lot of people join or hit my goals, that it was just a way to have something else to do for myself (outside of being a stay at home mom) that I really enjoyed and help a few people along the way. I know she was trying to be helpful and supportive in case I failed or didn't do as well as I wanted. She'd say it here and there over the years. I never really paid much attention (so I thought) and would just mentally tell myself, she didn’t know how well I was going to do. In early May, I did an exercise that brought these memories up and that lead to remember a bold conversation I had with my mom in mid-April. I told her that I was shifting gears and taking my business from part time to full time (along with other details) and I was excited. But here's the part that stands out. I can remember feeling bold in my statements and as if I was standing my ground with her. Or as if I was trying to make sure she understood that things were changing and I didn't want to hear from her all that stuff she'd said in the past. She of course was supportive and excited for me. It now makes since that I see the shift because I believe that conversation broke a mental block for me. I believe that not disagreeing with her out loud produced a block in my business form a mental stand point. I still would not confront her each time over the phone, but if anyone says anything like this to me know, I find time alone and speak out loud the opposite of what’s been said. That way I can keep my mind positive and focused on what I am as a business builder and not stay in the “safety zone”, which doesn’t grow in the way I wanted it to.
  I hope this made since. I’d love to talk with anyone more about this. I also found the book “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill very helpful with positive self-talk. But it’s also so much more than that ;)
Many Blessings, Aleena
