Generate Money With This Memory Jogger for Network Marketing

, , Leave a comment

The memory jogger technique is old-school, but it works.

When you find an opportunity that is so mainstream that you can share it with everyone you know.

You need an everybody you know list!

In one of the first companies I was very successful with, we used to call it the EYK list. So that acronym kind of stuck!

I use this list to help all the new promoters in my team generate a list of everyone they know. Using this memory jogger people tend to be able to write many more names than they would just by trying to think of them.

This helps you to identify a larger warm market than previously thought possible.

I’ve met top earners from several companies, and they all agree that inviting their warm market to watch their business presentation was one of the major reasons for their success in network marketing.

Why this old school technique is still worth practising

There are many different lead generation techniques available to network marketers, and home based business owners today.

If it’s a mass market product you promote, the EYK list is a very good place to begin – the reason being, it is always easier in sales to convert a warm prospect rather than a cold lead.

What I mean by that is, your parents, your spouse, and people you know – if they like the product or service you recommend, they are more likely to buy from you than a stranger you met in the street, because of a higher level of trust from the relationship.

As a lead generation tool for new promoters, the EYK list memory jogger method is a fantastic way to get started, usually with enough customers and promoters to reach at least the first rank advancement in the compensation plan.

How to use this memory jogger:

Simply print the list out, then fill out as many names as possible. Some people see how many they can write in 5 minutes, or 10 minutes, and make it into a game. Try to write at least a hundred.

If you manage to think of someone in every category you will now have a list of more than 200 people who you can invite!

What is the point of writing an everyone you know list?

Top earners all seem to agree that *200+* is the magic number of contacts they think of, and invited, to build their business.

If you find this method works for you, teach people you sponsor to write a EYK list, and to teach their new promoters to do the same.
