One of the biggest decisions you’ll make when you decide to become an It Works Body Wraps Distributor, is who to choose to work with as your It Works Sponsor.
What is a Sponsor in Direct Sales, or Network Marketing?
In all Direct Sales and Network Marketing businesses you are an Independent Distributor. But, in order to get started you must choose another distributor to enroll with. You can’t t go directly to the corporate office of the company you want to become a distributor with, and ask to get started. In fact, it is against many industry. That’s a whole other topic!
So, you must choose the person you will enroll with to begin your business with. That person is called your sponsor.
Choosing a Sponsor: One of Your Most Important Decisions
Once you have decided on a company you would like to represent, you will select a person to enroll with as your sponsor. Your sponsor takes on the role of your mentor, and coach in your new business.
Some of the things they will do are to help answer your questions, and introduce you to where files, documents, and resources that you will use are located, where to find training, and how to go through the training. They will show you the location of where to get additional sales and marketing items like catalogs, business cards, banners, magnetic signs, etc. They will show you where to find the schedule of available webinars, conference calls and presentations you will be able to use are found. They’ll direct you to where you can find a calendar of local, regional, national & worldwide live events and how to get tickets, or register to attend.
They will show you how to connect with your team’s resource community, which is usually a private membership group on Facebook. This online community will be your central hub for day-to-day knowledge, and support, and connection. It’s where you’ll get the latest news, announcements, and business building strategies that are working well.
The Role of a Sponsor & Your Relationship with Them
Knowing what I know, after almost 20 years in this profession, and having been partnered with three companies over this period of time, is this:
Your sponsor, and the team you join can make, or break most people. It shouldn’t be, and it doesn’t need to, but most often this one thing… choosing the right sponsor, and the right team does indeed make, or break most new distributors.
You need someone who will be available to you, and that genuinely wants to, and enjoys helping, coaching, mentoring, and nurturing the development of new distributors.
They also should be well versed in the phases we go through. As your income and business grows, you will develop as a role model, and leader to many. In doing so, you will encounter new strategies, and need new knowledge, and ideally your sponsor will have the experience to be there for you, support you, and be able to relate to you, while sharing insight having been there.
I’ve been mis-matched before, and it’s painful, and lonely. There will be people you can seek out, but it can be awkward if there’s no chemistry. or worse they are abrupt and don’t seem to want to have a relationship with you.
Most of My BEST Friends are Distributors
There’s something unique, and very special about a home based business in Network Marketing and Direct Sales! We attract the dreamers, and the doers, the people who want more out of life, and want to embrace everything that life has to offer. We attract people who are kind, generous, loving, authentic, and love to help people. Most have a strong relationship with God, and faith, family and values are our top priorities in life.
Think about the contrast between what I’ve just described and the world most people live in. It’s very different than most jobs and workplaces, where it’s competitive, and you must watch your back. People are often unkind, or “catty” (by the way I LOVE cats!) in the employer-employee, job world. Sad… but true!
A business in Direct Sales, and Network Marketing is quite the opposite of the regular job world. We love, embrace, help, and celebrate each other. We want others to succeed, and our motto is a rising tide raises all ships!
My closest friends, the people I communicate with every day, and spend time with are from all over the world! Most live thousands of miles away from me. I am currently in Florida. Born and raised in California, and spent many years in the Northern Virginia, Maryland, DC Metro area. The most successful Distributors that I work with are many, many miles away and we talk continuously through the phone, though text, through messenger, and our online community.
We are Independent Distributors. We each take action and do the day-to-day activities in our business independent of each other.
Think about it. This is a business of living your life, and enjoying your life. You business will take place as you do the things you want and like to do. We each have different places we go to, and visit. spouses, children, families. We shop, walk, ride, hike, drive, eat out, run errands, go to school, participate in activities like sports, clubs, parenting, networking, etc. Those Distributors who work outside their home each have different jobs that they go to. Many distributors have traditional jobs, but they telecommute and work from home.
But, we connect, help, share, and communicate with each other most often every single day from miles apart. And we are super successful.
YOU can be as well, provided you realize that you will be independent as well. You will have fun, support and success, and connect and develop close relationships and deep friendships through this business, but those relationships will be with people everywhere. SOME will be with people who live in your town, MOST will be with those far away.
So, this brings me to… >>> Is Having a Local Sponsor Best? >>>
My wish for you is that you make the right choice in a sponsor for you, and that you’ll become super-successful in your It Works Business!
I hope this information is helpful to you!
