Once I said yes to this business and this team my new Rodan + Fields journey kicked off fast and furious!
Rodan + Fields: Month 1
Within a few hours of me joining my sponsor (Amy) announced me and then I did a welcome announcement for myself. You can really do this as quickly or as slowly as you want. I couldn’t wait to announce and start posting though!
Amy then began the process of adding me to all of the necessary groups which included my up-line and a few others. Depending on how busy everyone is it can take a few days to get added to the groups. Once you are added your sponsor will then most likely announce you on these pages so people can welcome you. It’s a great feeling to have the support and to realize you are on a TEAM!
AUT TIP: When other RFer’s start welcoming and congratulating you, friend them on Facebook as they will be your most vocal and active supporters. Also, make sure to friend and/or follow your up-line leaders. (You can follow them on other social media platforms as well).
Once you are added to groups and have made a few friends you can begin your social media posting about your business, your team, and of course the amazing products!
Files, Trainings, and Videos
While you are waiting for your messaging to kick in and interested people to show up you should begin to read all of the files in the Facebook Groups beginning with your sponsors, then their sponsors, and the entire upline. Your sponsor should tag you in the most important things to read and videos to watch first. Then you can go out on your own and learn and research. You Tube has a lot of great Rodan and Fields videos too.
I started practicing my scripts to the most common questions and objections. That really helps when you are just getting started.
A Couple of Hiccups
I signed up as a consultant right in the middle of when R+F were transitioning platforms in advance of going global! The transition had a few hiccups and as a result Corporate decided to make it right with their new April consultants by sending us $200 worth of free products to use in our business and also giving us a free month towards our promotions.
I got my first glimpse of how amazing and supportive Corporate is to their consultants!
My First PC
My first Preferred Customer (PC) was my mother-in-law Susan. I know she wanted to support me in my new business but I also know she was very excited to try some of Rodan and Fields amazing products!
AUT TIP: One of the Golden Rules of starting in network marketing is grab your low hanging fruit first. Meaning reach out to those closest to you. Your parents, in-laws, siblings best friends, aunts uncles, cousins, favorite co-workers etc. They will most likely be the one’s to support your new business first.
We don’t live near much of our families so we really do have to depend on social media as a way to inform them about the new business. I spent the first weekend in my business sending over two hundred messages via FB, text, and email to my family and friends.
Many of them have inquired due to see a picture that they related to on Facebook.
I’ve also gained interest simply by talking about it to friends and or acquaintances. You never know what people are thinking and you never know who may be interested.
My First BBL
My next step, was to start planning my Big Business Launch BBL). I planned it and invited a ton of people and no one responded. Then I realized this was completely wrong timing because it was during the LAST two weeks of school.
I waited until the week after school was out to try again and I had 12 people RSVP yes and seven people showed up! I was thrilled! I had a simple get together with food and beverages at my house and talked about the products and the business opportunity. Out of that party I signed up a business partner and a new PC.
I just finished my official first month and I was able to get a pay raise and a promotion to Executive Consultant! I ended the month with two new business partners and 3 new PC’s.
My goal for month two is two more business partners and to help my other two partners get their pay raise and reach Executive Consultant. I would also love five more PC’s in June.
Ready, set, go!
