The GDI affiliate program offers a unique opportunity to those interested. While GDI effectively does the marketing for you, your affiliate opportunity is still your business. GDI does much of the work, but you still need to take on the role of business owner in a few ways. One is how you work with your team, new signups, and everyone who has the slightest possibility of being interested.
Offer Help to All
As with any business, you can’t reserve pleasantries and helpfulness just for guaranteed customers. Often times you might not know right away if someone is going to be worth your effort, but you still need to give 100% to every person you work with. Having your own business requires you to treat everyone as a potential customer and that is no different for being an affiliate with GDI. So answer questions and be helpful and friendly no matter if someone is a new team member, old team member, or someone who may or may not be interested.
Provide Help Before It’s Needed
You may walk into a grocery store knowing what you need, but chances are you still need to follow the signs on each aisle to find everything you’re looking for. This is a business answering your questions before you have to ask. Treat your potential signups and new team members this way. Think of questions they may have and have their answers already there for them in the form of blog posts, videos or your website. Providing help before it’s needed can help you to hang on to leads.
We talked earlier this week about the steps GDI takes to help you secure those missed sign ups. But did you know we also take the steps to ensure you can get to the missed sign up too? We do. Just check your email.
Anytime someone goes through the sign up process with you, but does not complete it, GDI will send you an email not only letting you know this happened, but sharing the name and contact information of this missed sign up. This gives you the perfect chance to follow up with this person and answer any questions they may have. We recommend you tailor this follow up, but also have a few tips for what you can say when you reach out to your missed sign ups below.
Ask if they have any questions and answer them. This person may not have signed up because they still have a few lingering questions and need the answers.
Ask them what their pushback is. If all of their questions are answered but they are still unsure about signing up with you, ask why. Try to respond to their hesitation with your personal stories of experience and success with GDI.
Talk them through the beginning process. They may be unsure what to do right after they sign up. Take the time to go over the steps to getting started with GDI, interjecting what you have learned along the way.
If you’re new to GDI and a bit overwhelmed with what to do next, don’t worry. Here are the steps you need to take as a brand new affiliate to get educated about GDI and be successful.
