That is a great point Lynda...

E.g..System just enables you to get quality Leads through its capture pages ,,but are you following up with those leads through specific action steps/strategies to close them??..

Not all systems are created equally. Some are more than just capture pages. Some, when designed correctly can take your prospect thru to your primary business and even make the sale.

1. lead capture page
2. email follow ups (autoresponders)
3. sales page
4. marketing training platform

But to answer the question "does your system build your business"... I would answer it yes and no. Yes because its working for me and no because systems/automation is just half the equation. The other half is to personally connect with your lead. For newbies, best way is to connect with their leads and build that relationship further.

Hi Sonny. What if your current system could take it a step further - right into and through your primary? Would that not be a system, unheard of, that would solve most if not all of current networkers problems. My mentor described it this way:
"A hybrid model that incorporates "old school" AND "new school" marketing & networking, steeped in a foundation of traditional business education with a system that gets people trained properly, is easy to use and empowers them to get started quickly - the right way, from day one. All in a process that can actually be duplicated by Jack the plumber to Jane the stay at home mom."

Wouldn't that be a system to beat all systems?

Hello Joyce,

Sounds interesting... would you mind sharing it? Thanks again.

Cheers,

I think "systems" are great for filtering out the tire-kickers from the serious.
It's definitely not a tool to replace personal relationships.

I think that's been the biggest misconception with "systems".
They tend to push the idea that no work needs to be done.

Everyone still needs to learn how to sell, communicate, and give
value. Systems are a great crutch but definitely not a replacement!

Great post!
Gil

Lynda, you are exactly right.


Reminds of a shed I built a few years ago. It was a big one. I bought all the materials, roofing, plywood, lumber, nails, screws, you name I had it ready to go. After a couple weeks my wife (ex now) looked st me and said, "it isn't going to build itself". I had to remind her of my vacation the following week. But, she was right. Businesses like sheds won't build themselves.


You can give someone everything they need and if they don't take action nothing's going to happen. For those who are willing and ready to take action having the right system in place can make all the difference if they succeed or fail.

Give the right person the right tools without giving then unnecessary objectives and they can win in a very big way. The right tools, the right training, the right system, and the right mentors = the right opportunity for anyone.


Hey Willie, sounds like you still have some excitement in you for Watkins. You should go for it and keep a refuse to quit mentality. You'll go far I'm sure.

Hi Joyce,

I am greatly considering it. I know my immediate sponsor would welcome me back with open arms, he used to call me tiger and say that he knew if I put my mind to it I could be very successful in Watkins.

I really did have great support from my upline.

Like I said it was 2008, I had just come out of Ameri-Plan, was trying to recover from the $4000 sting a few years earlier from an unscrupulous marketer.

My Watkins team had a great advertising co-op, bout $100 a pop. Those team co-ops can be great, if they are ran right.

I had a few sign ups, but back then I was not using the Internet to market, I was still trying to figure it all out, that's why I did the co-op.

Many of my sign ups needed, and were looking to make money now, and the ads from the co-op were written more like a job position, they were kind of mis-leading.

I'll have to go and find my team training website url and see what's been going on.

This post brings back to my rememberence, in 2008 I responded to a generic ad in my local newspaper, it simply said something like make money from home with your personal computer. You can make X amount of dollars full time and x amount part time.

I went to the website in the ad which was a lead capture system. It turned out to be Watkins.

What I now realize after reading this post is, I was fortunate to have come into a successful team that designed a website and system that is specific to Watkins. The site designer is a top Watkins distributor.

The system also provides training for the team members. It is very elaborate.

I just was not promoting it, although I am still a Watkins distributor.

It's amazing how we can be looking, and keep looking for that goose that lay's the golden eggs, and possibly have it in our hands all the time and not realize it. :oops:


Thanks for sharing that Willie. You gave me goosebumps as I read your last paragraph.
Out of curiousity, now that you know what you had, can you not go back to it?
Joyce

There was a lady who dreamed of building a huge business but as all business owners know, there are parts of building she excelled at and other parts she dreaded. She excelled at the initial point contact (introducing someone to her system) but disliked the technical stuff and being completely coachable, turned the training over to her mentors so everyone was duplicating the very same winning formula. She looked for and found a system that allowed her to just do what she was good at. No technical knowledge required, training done by the system and knowledgeable mentors. All she needed to do was contunuosly find new partners and be an accountability partner to her new sign ups.

That is a duplicatable system that creates success for everyone!

No a system is a tool whether online or off, there still has to be specific action steps that you take to build your business. In the end you are still responsible for your success a system doesn't create the success while you sit back and do nothing.
