Here is an action plan that is worth completing to get you moving forward… (as shared by Linda Helin)
We, the management, want to welcome you to iMarketsLive, (IML), and greatly appreciate you joining us on this venture. We have created a training to help ensure that you are off to a great start in marketing your new business. Knowing your product is essential. We are providing much more than a product: we are offering a true lifestyle change. We would like to start by getting you closer to reaching your dreams.
For me to be wealthy, I will be able to do the following (10 things)
1. Take my grandchildren to Disney Land
2. Pay for the wedding of my daughter’s dreams
List your top ten, you could say your bucket list;
A good system is called getting goals on the go. Every Sunday night create 5 goals for the week, put them on a post-it or an index card. Write notes all week long about the moments that are helping you achieve your goals.
1. Share IML with 3 people every day. Give out your card and in turn take their information.
Keep a list of individuals to whom you handed your information to.
2. Call 3 leaders you are working with every morning to create a plan of action for the day.
What are your 5 goals for Week 1 in IML?
Step 2 – Set up a budget that is not only realistic, but also relieves financial stress.
Rent or mortgage
Complete this list, add it all together then add 20%, that is your basic number, then divide by 4 and this will give you a base to work with weekly. Add up any credit card debit divide by 12 and add that to the monthly.
Step 3. Review the marketing portion of your IML website and explore the various levels of achievement in your pay plan.
There are two sides to this business. The Trading side and the Marketing side. Some of you are learning both of these professions at the same time. Keep in mind to separate the trading from the marketing.
We have put together something very special in the trading side. A safety net for you, no guarantees, but the net is sure nice to have.
The Live training room for trading is open from 9:00AM EST – 5:00PM EST Monday to Friday. With the Executive package, the Trade Signal Service is included. IML’s Trade Signal Service gives you access to the SAME BUY & SELL Signals received by our traders in the Live Trading Room. In simple terms, it allows you set your signal on automatic and benefit whether you’re at your computer or on vacation. Now, set aside the evening or weekends to share this opportunity with those you know, love and care about.
On the marketing side, there are 2 markets we will discuss. Your Warm market and your Cold market. Your Warm market is all those individuals that you know and know of. Your Cold market is those individuals that you have never spoken with and do not know.
Create a list of your Warm market leads.
Here are some helpful suggestions for your Warm market:
Your cell phone is the best resource to get you started.
Who are you spending money with to live your life?
Who is your Insurance Agent?
Who did you buy your car from?
Who do you buy your clothes from?
Who sold you your house?
Who do you buy your airline tickets from?
Who’s your doctor?
Who does your taxes?
Who is your Dentist?
Who cuts your hair?
If your car broke down at midnight, who would you call?

To create a Cold list, use Google, it is an internet marketer’s dream.
Create a list of businesses and focus on a different one each day.
Super! Now you have your lists. What’s next?
A) Call your sponsor and schedule 3-way calls. In the beginning, use your sponsor’s expertise, their story. Always be available for every 3-way call you schedule, with you making the introduction. It is extremely important that you edify your sponsor. What a great way for you to learn!
B) We want you to adopt a new mindset. You are not recruiting people, you are sponsoring them. The word sponsor comes from the word responsibility.
Let’s take it to the next step and say that we are interviewing people.
