20 | BUSINESS PLANNER Some of the signature dishes, from the award-winning uniquely vegetarian restaurant, Amala – part of Prana Resorts & Spa.HOW ELSECAN YOU SAY“I’M MAD”?Vegetarianism is not a food choice nor is it a lifestyle statement or even a health preference; it is our company statementthat life is sacred.QNET practises and promotes vegetarianism as a means of raising awareness about global warming; animal cruelty; theimpact of meat production on the environment; water and energy conservation; health concerns; and the widespreadadvantages to a vegetarian diet. We believe that a vegetarian diet greatly limits the ecological footprint of humans and helpsensure environmental stability.In line with this principle, QNET opts to serve only vegetarian meals at all corporate and network events and functions. Youcan show you are MAD by adopting a vegetarian lifestyle.
SO… WHAT IS THIS ALL ABOUT?? THE 4 Ps PROFESSION PLEDGE PRODUCTS PLAN“The ‘A’ plan. Absorb, Adopt and Apply. Absorb the essence of every lesson. Adopt it intoyour life. Adopt it into your thinking. Adopt it into your speech. Apply it daily at every instant.Let your life become the lesson.” — DATO’ VIJAY ESWARAN
22 | BUSINESS PLANNERTHE 4 PsPROFESSIONWHAT IS DIRECT SELLING?Direct selling is the perfect sales model, moving products and services directly to consumers through independent repswho earn based on merit! Direct selling is an established yet ever-growing industry that provides companies with a directpoint-of-sale and distribution channel for products and services, away from a physical retail location and without thetraditional intermediaries.WHAT IS NETWORK MARKETING?The multibillion-dollar direct selling industry has created the thriving and resilient profession of network marketing, allowingindividuals and businesses to work together and connect on a one-on-one basis – be it in person, online, by phone, orthrough catalogue sales. This ‘connection’ to customers is achieved through independent distributors or networkers. AtQNET, we call them Independent Representatives (IRs).HOW DOES IT WORK?QNET offers a carefully developed range of exclusive and reliable products that are sold online around the world using aunique, proven and repeatable Compensation Plan. The Plan pays commissions and incentives to IRs for the referral andpromotion of the company’s products.Our customers range from:1. Retail Customers, who regularly purchase our products without opting to explore the business-side of direct selling.2. Potential Distributors, who purchase products as well as avail themselves of the business opportunity.3. Existing IRs, who also enjoy the exclusive benefits of QNET products themselves in addition to building thriving QNET businesses.
BUSINESS PLANNER | 23WHY IS THIS ‘THE BUSINESS OF THE WORLD’?Direct selling has existed from the beginning of time, when merchants, traders and caravans journeyed the globe to tradetheir goods and fill the needs of customers. The travelling merchant was cited in mythology as a notable direct seller.In modern times, direct selling emerged in the 18th and 19th Centuries as peddlers began using more establishedtransportation routes and ultimately the person-to-person and small group selling methods. Today, direct selling movesmore than USD 130 billion annually in goods and services sold by a powerful, collective sales force of almost 90 milliondirect selling professionals. Many of those are QNET IRs!Throughout its long history, network marketing has proven itself time and time again as a resilient, reliable profession,particularly in times of economic difficulty. In fact, the direct selling industry not only survived, but has thrived throughout thepast two major economic recessions.In emerging markets, direct sales companies and distributors benefit from strong market growth and low entry barriers,combined with attractive earning opportunities. Any region that experiences active direct selling can also benefit from skilldevelopment and increased self-sufficiency of its people.In more mature markets, direct selling creates a truly unique distribution method that fosters community interaction whilebringing additional income, personal growth, and peer recognition to distributors.Worldwide Sales in Billions of U.S. Dollars Worldwide Sales Force in Millions of People Global Statistic Report 2010. Published 03 November 2011.

54 | BUSINESS PLANNERMY SKILLSTURNING PEOPLE YOU MEET… INTO PROSPECTS…INTO IRS… INTO REPEAT SALES1. THE APPROACH2. THE INVITE3. THE PRESENTATION1.THE APPROACHAs we go about our day-to-day lives, we are given hundreds of opportunities to start prospecting. In our conversationswith friends, colleagues, family, associates and even strangers, we may find ourselves presented with opportunities toapproach them about the QNET business. As you build and expand your Prospect List, you will naturally wonder how tobest approach your friends, family, and colleagues.Below are some comfortable phrases and scripts to help you put your approaching skills into action.• Have you ever thought about opening your own business?• Have you ever thought about increasing your income or developing a second income?• Is your job giving you enough satisfaction? Are you looking for more?• Do you think you are making the income that you really deserve?• Would you like to know a way where you would eventually have more free time to spend with your family?• If I could show you a simple way to change your current lifestyle and income, how soon would you want to see it?• Would you like to be involved in a business with an international company?• Would you like to know about a flexible business that can be run out of your own home and has great income potential?• Can you think of a business that can be done in more than 100 countries, with no need for inventory, factory or back office, and where your basic overheads, stock and guidance are provided for you?• Let me ask you a question. What would it mean to you and your family if there was an honest way, without changing much of what you are doing, to earn an extra few hundred dollars or even a few thousand dollars over the next two to three years? How would that impact your life?• I want to share something with you. I have shared it with several others I really care about. I think you would agree that most people want to do better for their family, wouldn’t you agree? I am no exception.• Let me ask you a question. How do you feel about the idea of having life options that you currently do not have? Like the life option of time to do what you want to do – not what you have to do – and the life option of a steady second revenue that no one can take away from you?• Do you have a moment? I have ventured into something that has made a dramatic difference in my life. I don’t know whether it is for you or not, but I would like to simply share it with you.
BUSINESS PLANNER | 55WHAT A SITUATION!Often, your encounters will be impromptu and may be with strangers… This can be daunting. It helps to rehearse somescenarios to build confidence to approach people.Below are some more scenarios to help you put your skills into action and to help you get to the next step of introducingthe business opportunity. After getting your prospect’s business card or contact details, give them a few days and then callto follow up with the Invite.EXAMPLE SITUATION 1This script works well with people you know vaguely, but are not close associates.You: “Have you ever thought about going into business for yourself? You would be terrific at the business I amin. I’d love to give you a call or give you some materials so you can look at them at home.”(Accept their business card and/or hand them one of yours. Thank them and confirm address and phone number. Arrangethe time you will call.)
56 | BUSINESS PLANNEREXAMPLE SITUATION 2The objective of this approach is to exchange business cards. No selling!You: “Hi, how are you?”(Talk socially then ask what they do. Listen attentively. A few sentences afterwards they’ll ask you what you do.)You: “I’m a recruiter who interviews entrepreneurs who have the ability to develop and train marketing teams.It’s a great profession and it pays very well, but it’s difficult to find motivated people who want to work.”(Then go back to asking them about themselves.)You: “How long have you been at your job?”(Do not continue to discuss what you do. If they ask for more information, tell them now is not the right time. Exchangebusiness cards and tell them you’ll call them.)EXAMPLE SITUATION 3This script works the best on a bus, an airplane, or somewhere that you both have to be for a certain amount of time.Pay close attention to what your prospect is doing while you are speaking. If they seem bothered, let them go. It’s not worththe unpleasant feeling.You: “Hi, I know this is a little different but you strike me as someone who has good people and PR skills. Doyou? Traditionally, we go through newspapers, executive search firms and referrals to look for business partnersor associates. But we’ve found that we’re most effective at finding top talent by going straight to people whoconnect well with others. I’d like to send you some information that gives an overview of how you can moreeffectively utilise your people skills. Do you have a card so that I can send this to you?”(Accept their business card and/or hand them one of yours. Thank them and confirm address.)You: “I’ll send this to you right away. Perhaps we should plan to speak in a couple of days? Maybe on Thursday?”(Get confirmation. Then point to the phone number on the card and ask:)You: “Is this the best number to reach you on Thursday? What hours are you there?”(Try to nail down the exact time.)(Thank them again and leave on good terms, or continue speaking about general conversational topics.)
BUSINESS PLANNER | 572.THE INVITEThe telephone is the most common way to invite prospects. It requires a limited amount of time and can be incorporatedinto your daily schedule. Use it only to set appointments for your personal presentations. Maximise it! Be sure to always becourteous in your phone manner and only call at reasonable times.TELEPHONE TIPS1. KNOW YOUR INTENTDetermine your objective before making the call. You need to know the reason of your call – whether it be an invitationto a big business opportunity meeting, a small home presentation, a two-on-one appointment, or just to reconnect andre-establish a relationship.2. BE PREPAREDBefore making the actual call, be positive, take a deep breath and then dial. Watch your posture. If you are ‘laid-back’ andcasual while making the call, it will come through during the conversation.3. BE PASSIONATEIt is not too important what you say to your prospect but more of the way you feel when you say it. While it is important tohave the depth of knowledge to back it up, the height of your enthusiasm is very important in your invitation.4. ASK FOR THEIR OPINIONYou can say outright that you want to get their opinion on something you have come across. This will immediately conveythe message you want to give to them and will engage them in your invitation.5. RESPECT YOUR PROSPECT’S TIMEAlways ask your prospects if they have a few minutes before proceeding with the invitation. You may catch them in themiddle of doing something that prevents them from being able to give you 100% of their attention. Be cautious not to comeacross as rude.6. DON’T ASSUME INTERESTA common mistake in approaching is to say: “I know you are going to be excited about this.” When prospects hear this,they often become close-minded. They feel you are trying to sell them something for your own gain. Carefully guide themtowards them expressing their own interest.7. CONFIRM YOUR APPOINTMENTSCall to confirm either on the day of your appointment or the day before. Be sure to express your enthusiasm about QNETand about being able to share the opportunity with them. Get them excited about attending the presentation and about theportfolio of QNET products.
58 | BUSINESS PLANNER8. TIME YOUR CALLSKeep your calls short and simple. The key is to simply capture their interest so they look forward to learning more. The mosteffective calls are under ten minutes.9. FACTS ONLY TELL BUT STORIES DO SELLYour prospects will be very interested in what you can offer them and what it has done for others. Share the success storiesyou have heard or read. Do not ever exaggerate or be dishonest when sharing these stories of success. Use facts to supportyour stories.10. ASK QUESTIONS AND LISTEN ATTENTIVELYThe key here is to discover the needs of your prospects and offer them solutions to these needs. This will come naturallyas you do more invitations. Each prospect will be different and will be motivated in different ways. Asking questions andlistening will help you develop the right approach to turn them from a prospect to a direct referral.11. EDIFY YOUR UPLINEWhen you say anything about your Uplines, refer to them as your ‘Business Associates’ and edify them so your prospectwill welcome the opportunity to meet them or speak with them on the phone. This also lends credibility to your presentation.Be sure to edify, not glorify, your Uplines. Speak highly but professionally about them.Remember you might not be successful every time, but the more you talk to people, the easier it becomes and the moresuccessful you will become.
BUSINESS PLANNER | 593.THE PRESENTATIONWhen giving presentations to your prospects, focus on two main areas:1. The proven, solid business opportunity that allows many different ways to earn income and is backed by a reputable and international direct selling company.2. The high quality of QNET products and the wide variety of choice that complements the business opportunity and individual markets. Be a product of your product by wearing and/or casually using QNET products during your presentation.PRESENTATION TIPS• Arrive 15-20 minutes EARLY to greet your guests.• BUSINESS ATTIRE should be worn for all business presentations.• NEVER LEAVE THE ROOM during the presentation or your guests might follow you out. It also disrupts the meeting and distracts both the guests and speaker.• When seats are limited, HAVE THE GUESTS SIT IN FRONT and the existing Independent Representatives should sit at the back or stand.• Keep presentations to a MAXIMUM OF ONE HOUR (your target should be 45 minutes).• During the presentation, be attentive. Behave as if it is the first time you are watching the presentation. Do not flip through pages or look bored. Do not engage in side conversations. LISTEN TO EVERYTHING, AS THERE IS ALWAYS MORE ROOM FOR LEARNING.• Be supportive and friendly to the other guests but DO NOT TALK ABOUT THE BUSINESS OR TRY TO PROSPECT THEM.• Guests arriving late may stand at the back. IF YOU ARE ALREADY SEATED, DO NOT GO TO THE BACK TO GREET THEM, as this is very disruptive to the speaker and other guests.• IT IS INAPPROPRIATE TO SAVE SEATS, as there are times when expected guests do not show up and it is quite difficult for a speaker to address a room that is half empty, particularly in the front rows.• PUT ALL PHONES AND PAGERS ON ‘SILENT’ MODE OR TURN THEM OFF. Refrain from sending and/or reading messages. This is very disruptive to other guests and especially to the speaker. It also shows that you are not interested in your own business presentation.• BE AS ATTENTIVE as you want your prospects to be.• AVOID USING ‘BUZZ WORDS’ such as prospects, Representatives, sign-up, Upline and Downline in front of the guests. Business presentations are not the arena to discuss concerns and challenges.
