The Reason You Are Not Sponsoring More

The reason you are not sponsoring more. There might be many reasons why you’re not sponsoring more people, but in my humble opinion, one of the reasons you may not be sponsoring more people is because you are talking to too many people. You’re like, “What do you mean, Miguel?” Well, here is what I mean. Nowadays we see a lot in Social Media people bragging about sponsoring 200 people in a month, or 300 people, or sponsoring 20 people in 30 days, or 30 people in 30 days, or 50 people in 30 days, and things like that. There’s nothing wrong with it. Everything is great if you can do all that.

But, before you get to sponsor someone, obviously that means you’re going to have to talk to people, a lot of people sometimes, and I don’t believe that you need to talk to that many people. I think, from my point of view, if you really want to sponsor more people it’s about slowing down, and talking to maybe less people. Obviously, I’m not saying don’t talk to anyone. You need to still take action and talk to people, but it’s about taking the time with each person and really do it more regularly.
When you talk to less people instead of more, you talk to less people and you do it consistently, you can build a better foundation, better relationship, so by the time you understand their goals and their dreams you are able to actually guide them through the process of the invitation, the follow up, and the sign up, and then get them into action faster, because you have built a better foundation in terms of the relationship that you have.

When you’re talking to too many people what happens, or what I’ve seen that happens, and certainly I’ve done that before, is you don’t feel you have the time to spend with anybody. What happens is when you do that a lot, and you talk to more and more people, what happens is you don’t go into depth in that relationship, because you don’t feel you have the time. Then, when you get to a point where you need to invite them to have a look to your opportunity, there’s no reason why they should do it. They don’t feel like you care enough about them. People don’t care about how much you know. They only care about how much you care. Going through that, think about maybe slowing down, building a more solid foundation in your relationship, talking to less people more often, so then when you do it regularly enough you have enough people to talk to, and you have enough people to invite to have a look at your presentation, enough people to follow up, and enough people to sign up, and to get started.
