They rave about it. They tell everyone that
they must take it. Why? Because they have proven
that people who use voice messaging make more
Simon Brooks of Lifestyles was the pioneer of
voice messaging in the UK. It took just seven
years for his team - who all use voice messaging
- to become the number one leader in the world.
Data-based e-mail has a tenth of the power of
voice messaging. Using e-mail over voice is
a false economy. Success is so simple - I cannot
believe that anyone would need any more proof.
Voice messaging enables people to send, recede,
reply to, pass on and broadcast messages to
individuals as well as large groups of people
across the country in just one call. Essentially
it allows everyone who has a messaging service
to recede information, ideas and inspiration
from their company and leaders on a daily basis.
In an industry where people are scattered across
the country, constant effective verbal communication
is vital. This is why all successful direct
sales companies use voice messaging in the USA
and every serious UK company has signed up in
the last three years. However, many are not
actively promoting it.
When you look at the test results it is amazing
that voice messaging has taken so long to reach
the UK and that some networkers still do not
use the service.
The lifeblood of any network is not recruiting,
as the old saying goes, it is communication.
Everyone in a network must recede valuable information
everyday if they are to feel connected, informed
and inspired to work.
Information, ideas and inspiration must be passed
on to new networkers every couple of days or
they rapidly lose motivation. Letters and newsletters
are too expensive and ineffective.
You cannot get people to meet so often and people
need to hear the tones in a voice to really
communicate (83 percent of your telephone call
communications is the tone of your voice, the
remaining 17 percent are the words).
Unfortunately, people do not effectively pass
on telephone messages. AT&T's statistics
reveal that 55 percent of calls do not need
two-way conversation and 75 percent of first
calls are unsuccessful.
Voice messaging saves time, hassle and money.
For approximately £10 per month you are
locked into instant communication. You can see
why people love it so much.
I am obviously a major fan of messaging and
have been singing its praises for 10 years now.
Those that took my advice are the leading networkers
in the UK.
If you are involved or are intending to get
involved in direct sales you must have voice
messaging service. So must everyone in your
network, especially new people. It should be
