Home Meeting Success

A proven way for your business to grow is to share what you know about the AIM products and business opportunity with others. By demonstrating your enthusiasm, people you meet will begin to share your excitement about starting their own business.

Meetings are one method many successful AIM Member Distributors have used to help build their network. Yet many people are hesitant to organize a meeting of their own. Shyness and a fear of addressing a group of people are just a couple of the reasons some Members put off hosting home meetings of their own.

Really, it’s easy. Here’s how:

Preparation

  1. Make a list of friends within driving distance of your home. Especially when you are holding your first couple of meetings, inviting people you are already acquainted with will help you relax and feel at ease with your guests. As you build on your successes, you’ll start to experience one of the greatest pleasures of being an AIM Member business builder: meeting and making new friends.
  2. Send invitations 7 to 10 days before the meeting. Whether your invitation is sent by email, text, by mail or using an online event tool such as Evite, it’s important to give your guests plenty of notice so they can plan their own schedules and make time to attend.
  3. Call everyone a day or two before the meeting and offer them transportation. This serves two purposes: it reminds everyone you’ve invited that the meeting is coming up, and it gives you a chance to help someone who may have run into difficulties making it to your house.
  4. Plan your meeting in advance by designing an agenda.

Agenda

  1. Welcome your guests and have everybody introduce themselves. You can make this as formal or informal as you want, but it is important to future members of your network to know who their fellow “AIM Family” partners will be.
  2. Show a video. AIM hosts several videos and playlists on our YouTube channel, aimusers. Consider showing the “Proven Products!” playlist, which makes explaining the features and benefits of the products easy for you.
  3. Tell your guests why you enjoy the products. It isn’t necessary to make a long, formal presentation, but offering some examples of how the AIM products have changed your life makes the information more immediate, and personal, for your guests.
  4. Hand out AIM literature. Depending on the focus of your meeting, the Living Well catalog, product datasheets, Member Income Plan guide or other literature are great handouts to share with your guests. This is also information they can take with them to read later.
  5. Invite your guests to share their experiences using the products. This is another way for you to help your guests learn more about the AIM products and business opportunity, and it also helps your guests interact and get to know each other better.
  6. Sample the AIM products. Your guests will want to try the products. With a blender and a few of your favorite smoothie recipes, you’re on your way. Mixing up a smoothie with AIM powders is a tasty way to introduce them to AIM’s nutrition that works!
  7. Offer additional information on the products or the business. As with any opportunity, some people are going to be more interested than others. For those who are interested, spend more time with them individually, explaining more about what you’ve learned about the products or the AIM business opportunity.
  8. Start and end your meeting on time. There are few things worse than being trapped by a salesperson who wants to tell you about something you aren’t interested in. To keep up the level of interest, your home meeting shouldn’t be any more than an hour and a half long. If some of your guests are really excited to get started, you can talk with them some more after you officially end the meeting, but let the other attendees go so they can think about it on their own.

Follow-up

  1. Stay in contact with your customers. As your new friends try the AIM products, they are bound to have questions. Don’t make them call you. Go that extra step and call them to answer any questions they might have.
  2. Ask your friends for referrals. As your new Members or customers become excited about the AIM products or opportunity, they are bound to have friends of their own they want to share the products with. Offer to help by hosting a home meeting for them. Working together, you can double your efforts toward success.
  3. Show satisfied users how to get the products wholesale. Many of your guests are going to be as impressed with the AIM products as you are. Teach them how they can order the products wholesale for themselves, and explain how they can further improve the quality of their lives through the AIM business opportunity.
  4. Schedule another meeting within 30 days. Now isn’t the time to slow down in your efforts. Since you’ve discovered that holding your own meetings can be rewarding and fun, make a new list of friends to invite over. Many AIM Members have proven that if you do you’ll be able to reach the level of success you are striving for.

Saying Yes! to Opportunity

Sometimes an opportunity comes along in life that “AIMs” you in a healthy direction. Chairman’s Club Directors Hilton and Edna Smith’s initial introduction to such a prospect was a near miss.

The Smiths were first introduced to AIM’s green juice powder by Dr. John Shewfelt, Chairman’s Club Director and chiropractor. They responded with a polite “No, thank you. We have all our vitamins!”

At that point in time, Hilton and Edna were part of a large, family-owned beef feedlot operation. Testing soil and animal feed showed the need for supplementation to provide a balanced ratio of nutrients, so it made sense to supplement their diets too.

“I was a stay-at-home mom with two sons and helped with the farm bookkeep­ing,” Edna recount­ed. “We were always very dependent on weather and market prices. In fact, our future looked very bleak because each year our agricultural business went further into debt.”

The idea of a home-based business really appealed to her, so they enrolled with a network marketing company to use their vitamins and share them with others to make a little cash. “We achieved some measure of success, similar to AIM Director,” Edna explained “but found it very stressful to maintain the high monthly qualifications to keep our status. We saw too many distributors losing their status to ever dream of being successful with that company.”

AIM came back into the picture after Edna witnessed the positive results from her sister’s use of AIM’s barley juice powder while going through radiation treatments. This got Edna’s attention, and she determined to find out more about this powerful green drink and The AIM Companies™ that marketed it. After reading the AIM Member Income Plan, Edna recognized its exciting potential.

“Chairman’s Club and beyond was possible because titles are permanent as long as the membership is kept current,” Edna admitted, “I started to dream about what we could do with the extra income.” She was now sold on AIM but still had to convince Hilton. That happened when her AIM income started to exceed his.

Three years after joining AIM, Hilton resigned from the farming business, which went into receivership a year and a half later. Their AIM income allows them to still reside on their 100-acre farm.

“We shudder every time we think about almost missing the opportunity to make beautiful new friendships, share better health and wealth and experience a financial freedom we never dreamed possible,” Edna stated. “We are so thankful that we had a second chance to say ‘Yes!’ to AIM.”

Dreaming with Faith Bring Success

Shared by Hilton and Edna Smith, AIM Chairman’s Club Directors

It’s been our joy and privilege to be part of the AIM family since November 1987. We could never begin to count all the ways in which our AIM business keeps blessing us.
Our success formula is based on FAITH: faith in God and that with Him all things are possible, faith in AIM and AIM products and faith in ourselves.

F ~ reminded us to focus on AIM. AIM has been our passion for over 30 years. It’s so exciting when people thank us for helping them improve their quality of life.

A ~ acting upon our “written” goals always kept us on track. I think the biggest mistake that people make with a network marketing business is that they fail to treat it as a business. The only place that success comes before work is in the dictionary. I always enjoy going to work in my home office and choosing my own hours.

I ~ imagine success. I would get so excited hearing all the testimonials every time we had a home meeting, that afterward, when I jumped into bed, I would say, “Look out Chairman’s Club … here we come!” And now we are still excited to hear the good reports as we receive the honor of being inducted into the Two Million Dollar Club.

T ~ stands for teach and train others. The training that we provided for others through our home meetings, teleclasses, phone calls, literature, etc., always motivated us as well. It was work, but it was fun.

H ~ help everyone you can. Network marketing is a numbers game, so the more people you help, the more successful you become.

I am so thankful that God gave me a loving and supportive husband who did a lot of behind-the-scenes work, always helping me with meetings, health shows, preparing meals and gardening and encouraging me and our Members. Together, we thank our AIM owners for providing us with this amazing opportunity. We also thank our caring team of distributors, many who have become cherished friends.

Most importantly, we thank our Heavenly Father for directing our steps to The AIM Companies™. We can’t help but marvel at how our lives have changed, and, more importantly, how many lives have been changed since we joined AIM. Becoming a part of the AIM family was certainly the best decision we ever made. Dreams do come true when you dream with faith.

“Aren’t They All Just Pyramid Schemes?”

How I joined a network marketing company and never looked back

I consider myself open-minded, but in the last few years I have found that the majority of people do not share my open-mindedness. My story begins a few years ago when a friend introduced me to a product called Herbal Fiberblend. I was having some digestive issues … I’ll spare you the details. What I can tell you is Herbal Fiberblend made an incredible difference. I was so impressed that I did some research and decided to get started with the company that offers this product. Within five months, my entrepreneurial business took off and I made the decision to go into it full-time. My friends and family thought I was making a mistake. But I am happy to report that the only mistake I made was not starting sooner!

Before I started my business, I had absolutely no entrepreneurial experience. In less than two years I now make a better income in this so-called “pyramid scheme” than I did as a pharmacy technician, a job I went to school for and went into debt to achieve. The irony is that the income from my new business has actually helped to pay off the balance of my student loans!

“You will never make money in a pyramid scheme.” Honestly, leaving my pharmacy tech position to do entrepreneurial sales full-time was scary. After all, I had a stable income and benefits with an established company. But the people I met working in the business were the first to tell me, “Everything is a pyramid scheme.” There will always be a hierarchy at every company with someone making more than the next person, and so forth.

I now understand exactly what they meant. Looking back, I realize that no matter how hard I worked at the pharmacy, there was always going to be a ceiling on how much I was going to be paid.  When I approached my supervisor about the possibility of advancement, he too expressed the goal to grow in his career and compensation. When you think about, most companies have a ladder to the top, with different “levels.” Sound familiar? Wanting to move up in earning and position is something that nearly all of us strive for in our professional lives. What makes entrepreneurial network marketing unique is you can achieve this without being held back by the hierarchy above you in the organization.

So why do network marketing companies have such a bad name? Because they are NOT all the same. From the moment I made the decision to go full-time as an entrepreneur, family and friends were skeptical. There were remarks like, “You know that a lot of ‘those companies’ have gone out of business or been investigated for being pyramid schemes, right?” Yes, there ARE direct selling companies that have not followed good business practices or have disregarded the rule of law. But it’s important to keep things in perspective. Those companies often fold within a few years. Still, it is important that you do some research before you decide to join any direct selling company. Make sure the company you choose sells a commodity and pays you based on the sale of that commodity. Make sure it is a product or line of products you can confidently stand behind. If either of these is not true, stay clear.

The company I chose has been in business for over 36 years and offers a line of high-quality whole-food and nutritional products that I personally use with confidence.  So, I am able to make an income offering products that I trust in and can help a person’s health and well-being. When I talk to people I never promise anyone that they will make a six-figure income or get a free car, for example.  In fact, early on in the relationship I typically don’t discuss the business opportunity with a customer or prospect unless they ask.  I simply suggest products based on my experience and a person’s needs, emphasizing the product’s benefits and the 30-day money-back guarantee. I certainly don’t claim to be a doctor or know of a “cure-all.”  The nice thing about this company is I don’t even have to build a team of salespeople and can still make a good income.

I’d be remiss if I didn’t talk about the other reasons I enjoy being an entrepreneur. No, it’s not all about the money you can earn! For me, it is also about the relationships. I have made a lot of friends through my business. It’s also about personal development. I was always a follower, having had poor self-esteem since childhood. Being an entrepreneur has helped me become a much more confident person and leader. I didn’t have that sense of purpose and self-assurance in my previous work.

And by the way, most people fail in this kind of business because they lack motivation and initiative. You can be given every tool you need to succeed, but if you do not apply yourself, you fail. It is important to attend to the business, to streamline your prospecting system, and to build and maintain your team. Just like in a regular job, if you do the right things and do them diligently, you will eventually succeed.

I am not discouraged by negative articles about network marketing because I know it works. I’m not wealthy yet, but it won’t be long before I’m making a better income than most of the people I know with college degrees, some of whom never had a job that related to their field of study. And when they complain to me about student loan debt, lack of opportunity for advancement, or working for “the man”, I can guarantee you I will tell them about The AIM Companies.

Why AIM Members Are Called Diamonds

In the AIM network marketing world, Members are integral not only to the success of The AIM Companies™, but inseparable from the level of success. The more successful that Members are at building their AIM businesses, the more successful AIM grows.

Members are like sales representatives of good health who are out in the world promoting AIM’s natural products and introducing them to people who purchase them. Some of these new Members will build businesses of their own, following a similar path of the Members who sponsored them. It’s called growth, and growth is the “element” that keeps a company going. Without this element, AIM would not have existed for the past 36 years.

The Diamond Connection

Diamond is a pure element: carbon compressed to its crystal form, making it the strongest mineral on earth. Of all of the gems in the world, diamonds are among the most precious, if not the most valuable depending on the type of diamond. So it is no play on words that The AIM Companies refers to AIM Members as “Diamonds.” It refers to the truth that Members are the most precious element in the entire concept of AIM.

2018 Diamonds Aglow Celebration

The radiance of diamonds is unpar­alleled, and over the past three and a half decades the AIM family has had a myriad of types of “Diamond” Members, each with a unique background and path to success that radiates to this very day.

The 2018 AIM Diamonds Aglow Celebration will include the opportu­nity to express appre­ciation for “Diamond” Members as the AIM family gathers in fel­lowship from July 12 -15 in Toronto, Canada.

– Ralph Peterson, Chairman’s Club Director
