On Sun, Jul 1, 2012 at 1:01 PM, A DISTRIBUTOR, ERIC WROTE:
How does Jordan, get people interested in being distributors. Most of the people I have been talking to so far I feel like I will have to work on over time. I really want to figure out how to accelerate the process.
I have the ability to build and approach the best business minds in a number of industries. I’m trying to figure out what the best and most efficient way is to get in front of serious prospects for distributorships.
Tap, Tap, The podium is yours …
Be sure you listen to Jordan’s call from last Monday with Ivan Misner (your question sounds like you missed the call).
Jordan sends cards, sends cards with DVDs and shows people how to send a card. For 7 1/2 years I’ve watched him do it. The only difference between him and anyone else is he does it “massively” (read his numbers from the original e-mail).
The slow way is the fast way. You have to show them the system first. Let them know, with conviction, that you believe it’s going to be huge. Remember, the timing has to be right for them. But if you stay in touch (sending cards), the timing will eventually be right for everyone your list.
It’s a lot like growing a garden and asking how do you get the seeds to grow faster? They grow on their own their schedule. The BIG results happen months and years later. But those results depend on what you do now. It’s a little deceiving because it looks like nothing’s happening. If you’re doing the work, things are happening. Just because the seed hasn’t sprouted doesn’t mean it’s not growing.
THIS WAS AN EMAIL THAT I SENT TO MY TEAM ON MY 9TH MONTH IN THE BUSINESS. I
HAVE NOW BEEN IN SENDOUTCARDS FOR 7.5 YEARS.

I deliberated before sending this out.
This will give you an idea of the activity necessary to create growth and momentum.
Understand that if you want an extra $200-$1000 per month, you can be consistent and plod along.
If you want staggering growth here’s what it takes.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The numbers I am going to share with you are MY SPECIFIC RESULTS and yours may be better or worse. Your results will depend on your ability to Allow Success to flow into your life and the quality of the relationships you have built to date. You will be Networking, Supporting your team, Promoting events and Conference Calls, etc.
I was asked today if its true the company is paying me extra to build and if its true that the company gives me leads?
I HAVE RECEIVED NO SPECIAL TREATMENT OR COMPENSATION FROM THE COMPANY. I GET PAID EXACTLY THE WAY YOU GET PAID. I HAVE RECEIVED 2 REFERRALS FROM THE COMPANY AND NEITHER HAVE SIGNED UP. ALL THE INCOME I HAVE RECEIVED HAS COME FROM THE SAME PLAN THAT YOU GET PAID ON.
Also, the numbers I am quoting you do not include the Tom Hopkins event results. That event occurred 2 weeks ago and has not yet appeared on my checks.
That being said, here are some stats for you to contemplate.
- I signed up on Dec 26th and started my business on January 2nd, 2005 (8 MONTHS AGO).
- As of today 9/10, I have sent 4205 cards.
- Of the 4205 cards, about 2000 of them had DVD’s in them.
- I have set up gift accounts for about 200 people and have walked about 160 of them through sending a card (in 8 months, that would be about 20 per month or less than 1 per day)
- I have enrolled 68 distributors personally
- I have 599 distributors as of today in my group.
- It took 90 days to hit 100 distributors
- I hit 200 distributors in my 1st 5 months
- 60 days ago I had 400 distributors.
- 199 distributors have joined in the past 3 weeks.
- 60 days ago, the group volume was growing by $300 per day
- 30 days ago the group volume was growing by $800 per day
- Yesterday we grew by $2200 (for the day!)
- Of the 68 personally enrolled Distributors, about 30 of them I knew from my previous company.
- 90% of my group, had no experience with my previous company (Excel).
- 60 days ago my group was adding 3 new distributors per day.
- 30 days ago, my group was adding 8 new distributors per day.
- Yesterday we added 11 new distributors (for the day).
- Income:January – $500
February – $6800
March – $4100
April – $2300
May – $3200
June – $3100
July – $3500
August – $8400
September (run rate based on 1st 10 days)$16,000
My volume was $11,700 in July and $24,600 in August. So far, with our current run rate, we’ll hit over $40,000 for September (were already at $13,000 and its only the 10th).
P.S. Remember that it takes time for a forest to mature. You plant the seeds and nurture them . . . you don’t get the shade for a few years. 70% of my group has joined in the past 90 days! The true results will take 2-3 years to manifest themselves!
The leaders of the future have not even joined the company yet!
FINAL THOUGHT – The distance between 1 and 100 is miles uphill . . . the distance between 100 and 500 is miles on flat ground . . .the distance between 500 and 1000 is a short flat walk . . . the distance between 1000 and 4000 is coasting downhill on a 10 speed. 4000 to 10,000 is a Rocket Ship.
I know, because I have EXPERIENCED IT BEFORE!
I want you to experience the same thing. Its a thrill.
HOME GRATITUDE CHALLENGE PARTY
I held a Gratitude Party in my Condo on the strip in Las Vegas last Thursday night. We had 40 people in
attendance and 10 guests. I don’t know exactly how many have signed up but I believe that most of them
became either a customer, MD or MD/CT. All agreed to at least take the 30 day gratitude challenge and I
know that Bob and Betty Ann (Eagles from Vegas) signed at least one MD/CT. It was a huge success.
Here was the format that we used (1 hour):
7:30p – 7:35p Welcome . . . Jordan tells HOW AND WHY
he got involved with SendOutCards
7:35p-7:38p Jordan shows 3 minute ‘couch’ video (www.sendoutcards.com/YOURID#)
7:38p-7:45p Bob and Betty Ann share 2 testimonials about
how people are benefiting from the Gratitude Challenge
7:45p-8:00p Jordan tells Kody Bateman’s story and has each person
write down the names of 5 people they are grateful for. He then has each
person pick one person on their list and write a card to that person telling them
why they are grateful. Jordan has 3 people read their cards to the group.
(Lots of tears)
8:00p-8:05p Jordan cues up and plays the TAKE THE CHALLENGE
video from www.socgratitude.com/YOUR ID#.
8:05-8:06 Jordan cues up and plays the TEACH THE CHALLENGE
video from www.socgratitutde.com/YOURID#
8:06-8:15p Jordan shows examples of cards and gifts from the display
table (the dining room table!) He shows greeting cards, canvas prints,
a calendar and an iPhone cover.
8:15p-8:25p Jordan reviews the ways to get started:
How to become a customer
How to become a preferred customer and TAKE THE CHALLENGE
How to become a marketing distributor for $295 and what you get for that
How to become a certified trainer for $345 and what you get for that
The special ‘From the Nest’ Promotion
8:25p-8:30p Closing story (if you don’t have one, borrow one!)
WATCH THIS 1 MINUTE CLIP FROM KODY BATEMAN ON GRATITUDE!!
“I started to take the challenge to meet my goal of rekindling relationships. I never would have suspected that on Day 7 one word of Gratitude would be life changing. My 2.5 year old son has life threatening food allergies. At daycare he took a bite of someone else’s peanut butter sandwich. Within 3 minutes he went into full anaphylatic shock and was not breathing. Thankfully, the director used his Epi-pen on him immediately and the medicine saved his life. He was hospitalized and it took a full week to recover. My husband and I had every reason to get angry or upset over the situation and the potential loss of our son’s life. However, that very evening of the accident, I sat in front of my computer and realized I had yet to send out my one card of gratitude that day. I decided to send a heartfelt card of gratitude to the woman who acted quickly to save my son’s life. The overwhelming stress and pain from that day was magically lifted f
rom me. To be able to pour my heart out to this woman, but not for her actions, my son would not be with us today. We made a choice to be grateful for what went RIGHT on that day, instead of what went wrong and to send out a card of GRATITUDE. This challenge has affected us very deeply and I’m LIVING IT! Don’t hesitate, TAKE the challenge NOW!” -Deena Cannistraci
