Would you still help somebody if you stood to make NO MONEY from them?
Well, hello everybody! Today I want to tell you a little story about the benefits of helping others. It's going to sound like a bit of a cliche but just bear with me as there will be a VALID POINT at the end!
For those of you who are new to my blog, the 'big ticket' item that I 'sell' is The Six Figure Mentors. If you don't know what The Six Figure Mentors is, take a look at this review and come back afterwards. Anyway, there are various training packages which a customer has the option to purchase once signing up for their initial membership. One of these options is The Six Figure Mentors Elite. The package costs $2,000 and any existing Elite member (like myself) who sells this, receives a whopping $1,000 commission! Nice, huh?! Obviously! So, if somebody signs up through myself, they will become one of my team members. I am listed as this person's 'sponsor' or 'mentor', if you will. If I am carrying out my duties correctly, I will make myself available to my new team member as often as possible to help guide them through their training. After all, at The Six Figure Mentors, we pride ourselves on our excellent community, packed fill with worldwide entrepreneurs with a wide range of knowledge, ready to share at any given time.
Mentors aren't always available and it's not always their fault!
However, we all appreciate that sometimes a 'mentor' won't be available to their team member due to various reasons so we all make a point of just offering help to each other. We're all one big team at the end of the day! Now, I know some of you cynics out there will be thinking "Why the hell should I have to help someone if they're not even on my team! I didn't get any commission out of them, somebody else did!" It's easy to think that way and I understand when people do, especially if they're busy trying to make their own money! We're all trying to get a piece of the pie, aren't we?
When I first started out, I was like this, to a degree. New members were contacting me for help and I would just send them straight to their mentors, annoyed that they would 'bother' me when I didn't even make any money from them! But then, about 3/4 months in, I COMPLETELY CHANGED. Why? I realised that I had been given so much help and advice from a whole host of people, within the community, who weren't my mentors. They didn't receive the commission for my sign up and yet they still took time out to help me and still do to this day! I never forgot that and never will. This is why I do exactly the same!
Just the other day, I was contacted by a relative newbie, Stefan Feuchtenbeiner. He's about 3 months in and has trouble connecting with his mentor because this person is incredibly busy and not always available at the same times he is. It happens. But that's what the rest of the community is here for. He said he liked my site and could see that I'm a nice chap, who appears willing to help others. He used the Skype appointment link on my site and booked in a free 30 minute call. This is something I offer to anybody before we discuss any type of payment.
A FREE 80 minute Skype chat equals one happy newbie!
The day of the call arrives and, before you know, 80 minutes had passed and we were still talking. Stefan felt bad for 'taking up so much of my time' and offered to 'buy a product from me'. He said he wished there was a way he could go back and purchase the Elite package from me, jump onto my team and provide me with a whopping $1,000 commission. Sure, that would've been nice but I explained to Stefan that I'm in this game for the long haul anyway and I know that karma will look after me. Plenty more sales will come my way. You win some, you lose some but I'm satisfied just knowing that Stefan rates me highly as a member of The Six Figure Mentors and will no doubt pass my name as a recommendation to anybody. We've agreed to stay in touch. He wants to pay me for my 'mentoring service' but I told him that helping fellow members is what our community is all about.
Check out this testimonial video he made for me and please, don't get me wrong; I'm not trying to be arrogant and say "Look at me, I help people for free! What a big man I am!" I'm just trying to help people shift their mindsets into not always selfishly thinking about the monetary gain. Simply helping people to be kind has huge rewards too! Cheers!
