If you are wondering how to find a Social Selling sponsor or Mentor, this is the right place.
Who is your mentor?
Though you are in control of your success, it will come naturally with the right sponsor and team. Do they have a working knowledge of business? Good communication style? Do you relate to the culture of the team?
If not, you could find yourself paying a lot of money for a business coach like I did in my first 12 months.
First and foremost, do your homework! Google! Get on social media! Who stands out?
You’ll likely find few (there are phenomenal women in every brand!), so here are some questions to consider:
Does he/she want to do everything for you?
This is a biggie. Look for red flags- are you being taught or handed something to copy in paste? If the latter, in many cases, it means they are not going to be invested in your learning and development.
Your launch is hands-on training. If your sponsor wants to do it for you, it’s a shortcut. Not good.
This is a 1099 Independent Contractor position. While your mentor shouldn’t be your Accountant, he/she should be able to guide you on where to maximize the money you invest into your business as well as what you can write off.
As an example, you’ll write off the cost of the starter kit ($20), expenses, + a % of your monthly phone, Internet.
Side note: if your mentor or sponsor is encouraging you to buy lots of inventory or too many personal purchases, you have every right to push back.
Most companies do not require inventory and you’ll be selling in a “drop selling system”, meaning the products will ship from a warehouse automatically (not your closet or garage).
At Aloette, we do recommend you get some samples of enzyme peel if you intend to go to events in person.
Does he/she have marketing expertise?
This job is a mix of marketing and sales. We recommend you market on social media and sell over email or in person at fitness, retail, or in home events.
Your mentor should be well versed in the way you intend to promote the brand.
I see people all the time who join with someone who has no clue about the platform they want to do business on. It’s not pretty.
I’m not telling you, Instagrammer, not to join with your friend who only does Facebook but you will want to make sure she’s prepared to do some self development if you are on her team.
Does he/she treat it like a business?
Otherwise, you become your best customer….and that’s not a good thing.
