Direct Sales offers the opportunity to learn from a number of people within your upline. As your downline grows you will/can have hundreds or thousands of consultants within your group. Once you reach senior ranks, time management skills are key to a successful business; the ability to set priorities is paramount if you are going to lead a large organization.
While I would not dare complain about having of team comprised of hundreds or thousands of consultants, having a large group does present some unique challenges; one being returning emails and phone calls.
The information below is actually for those consultants who leave messages for their sponsors, directors or managers. Whether your leader has 20, 200, 2,000 or 20,000 consultants on the team, the information below is relevant.
If your voice mail sounds like anything below, you may not get a return phone call – either not in a timely fashion or possibly not at all:
- Hi, it’s me, give me a call. (Me? Who is me?)
- Hi, it’s Sara, can you call me please? (I have 13 people named Sara. How am I to know which one?)
- Hi, this is Jane Doe. I have some questions. Can you call me please? 123-555-2345 (Name is good. Number is even better. “I have some questions” is far too ambiguous.)
