  10. 10. Important Keys 1. Make your list with others. Complete your prospect list with your Leader, and make sure to involve your spouse when possible. 2. Add names, don’t eliminate them. Resist the tendency to eliminate people from your list because you think they’re too busy or make too much money. That is a major mistake. Remember, it’s not just who you know, but who they know also. 3. Use the “Executive Memory Jogger.” The purpose is to “jog” your memory for every quality person you know. 4. Identify the “Top 25” on your list. Your list should have a minimum of 100 names and grow to as many as 300, 500, 1,000. ….quickly identify the “Top 25” and begin contacting them immediately with your Leader.

  13. 13. The F.O.R.M. Method There are four questions you can ask when talking with a stranger. This method flows more naturally if you “prime the pump”. F. Stands for “Family.” You might ask him (or her) if he is a family man, does he have kids, did he grow up here in town, etc.? O. Stands for “Occupation.” What does he do for a living? How long? Does he like his job? R. Stands for “Recreation.” Perhaps you have a common recreational interest. M. Stands for “Message.” Tell the prospect what you do to spark his interest. Get his name

Who do you know that may be interested in a new business venture or a possible career change?”
  18. 18. Prospecting If the prospect has attended the BOP (whether at the office, one-on-one, or online) and is not interested in joining, there is still an opportunity to get referrals. “I appreciate getting to meet with you today. As you can tell, our concepts can make a huge difference in someone’s life._______, I work strictly on referrals. Would you be kind enough to introduce me to a few people who might benefit from our concepts?”
