THIS WEEK’S TIP: Find Potential Recruits
It can feel awkward bringing up the demonstrator opportunity. In reality, starting a conversation about recruiting doesn’t have to be a big deal. When you’re at an event, be sure to mention a couple things that you really love about being a demonstrator. You never know when one of those benefits will spark someone’s interest. Most importantly, when it comes to building your team, be consistent. It’s not about recruiting hordes of people in one event, or even in one year. It’s about consistently sharing what you love, consistently signing people up, whether that means one or two a month, every quarter, or each year. Consistent recruiting means continual growth in your business.
host an opportunity night
An opportunity night is an event where potential team members can ask questions and learn more about the Stampin’ Up! opportunity and if it’s right for them.
Opportunity nights should be relaxing and fun! Create a party-like atmosphere: have food, party favors (some kind of stamped piece), a Make & Take or another way for guests to play with products, and create a display with the Starter Kit or amazing finished projects.
Be sure to share your Stampin’ Up! story so your potential team members can feel from your heart why you love being a demonstrator. And give your potential recruits plenty of time to ask questions, you can even make it into a game to keep that fun, relaxed atmosphere.
If you’re wondering who to invite to an Opportunity Night—everyone and anyone! After all, you never know who might be interested.
