How did we live before the era of the smart phone? To think that not too long ago, we carried around a huge brick before flip phones were even a thing. Now devices like the iPhone 7 replace a half a dozen gadgets by itself. It’s not only our personal lives that can benefit from embracing the latest handsets on the market. We all have an attachment to our smartphones, because they aren’t just being used for fun. We use our phones to benefit ourselves both personally and professionally.
Your smart phone has gone from being a luxury to a necessity in the world of business. With people becoming increasingly connected, cell phones allow you to perform job duties whenever and wherever you might find yourself. Whether you’re iOS or Android… it doesn’t matter. Your handheld device can help your further your business just by being accessible. Here’s how you can maximize its influence.
1. Leverage Your Digital Rolodex
Smartphones are communication devices, so use them to communicate for your business. The most powerful tool in recruiting new members of your team is through strong personal relationships. Take a moment to flip through your contacts. Think about who would be the most interested in financial and time freedom, and send them a text. Craft a text message that allows them to answer on their own terms. And, just think, you might have hundreds of potential new business partners in the palm of your hand.
2. Be Available for Your Squad
As you build your business and become a leader, your downline will grow. With your downline expanding, your priority in the business will be to continue to motivate and train your team. Think of yourself as their leader or coach; your team is investing in you and your time, which means you’ve got to take time to see how their experience in the business is going or taking a moment to congratulate them on a win. It’s critical that you are available, as their success is your success, too. With your mobile device, you have the ability to connect via text message, Facebook messenger, FaceTime, WhatsApp or through a simple phone call. The means to communicating are endless. Plug into team calls, 3-way calls for third-party validation and welcome calls, too! You’ll find more info on these topics in our LIMU University training videos, available now in your Back Office!
3. Say L-I-M-U for the Camera!
