How to Get More #s!

  • It's NORMAL to not have a lot of #s of adults over 30 y/o when you start out.

  • Here are simple ways to get more #s!

  •  Risk VS Reward

    • What's the worst thing that can happen? (someone says 'no')

    • What's the best thing that can happen?

  • You're not bothering anyone! This called Networking. It's a valuable skill. As a matter of fact, the busier and the more successful people that you might be afraid to call are the ones that appreciate a young adult working hard and developing these networking skills.

  • Not all of these categories might be good for YOU. Focus on the ones that are!

  • Think of yourself as a farmer. The more crops you plant, the bigger your harvest! You don't get paid per crop you plant as you plant them. But when you sell your harvest is when you'll have the big payoff!

Asking parent (or any loved one over 30 years old!)

ie, grandparents, close aunts/uncles, etc.

Getting Permission: “Mom/Dad, I still need to brainstorm for married homeowners I can do practice presentations with for my new job. Like I said, I get $15 just for doing the appointment so nobody has to get anything. No one even has to be interested, they just have to be over 30 years old. The more I get, the more it helps, so I'm looking for as many as possible! The numbers stay only with me and as long as they're over 30 and don't hate college kids, I can get paid just to practice! I was hoping you could put me on speaker and go through your phone and read me everyone you could over 30 y/o?” (You may also walk through their phone with them so you know who is a married homeowner)

  • If parents have questions about brainstorming people: Make sure they know you get paid just to do it so there is no pressure at all, and that the numbers stay just with you. The more practice appointments you do, the more money you will make, the more confidence you’ll get and the more referrals you will have to do more appointments, and it gives you great communication/presentation experience.

  • Additional questions / concerns: have them go to VectorParents.com!

Post:

My son is working with CUTCO and he gets paid to show it face-to-face or online for out of area people. There's no pressure to get anything because he gets paid to show it. He can also win scholarships for school through the company. Let me know if you would be willing to help him out by messaging me. Thank you!

Direct Message to Mom's Friends:

Hey ___. This is ________________. I am _______________'s son and I am attending the University of ____________ as an (major) student. The company that I'm working for offers scholarships to help me pay for school. My assignment is to book appointments with people to show a product called Cutco and get their opinion on it. You don't have to get anything, I get paid just to show it, and it can all be done online and over the phone. In order to stay on track for my scholarship/goals, I need to do 10 appointments per week. It's fun and easy and takes less than an hour. 

What day this week would work best for you? It would really help me out! I look forward to hearing back from you! :)
