Welcome to the Ultimate Action Plan for Recommendation Program Success!

If you’re feeling overwhelmed or unsure where to start, you’re in the right place. This step-by-step guide will walk you through the process of maximising your success with our program, from setting up personalised links to attracting clients and collaborators like a pro.
 
 

Step 1: Prepare Yourself for Success

Preparation is the KEY TO SUCCESS! They say 80% preparation and 20% action! Proper preparation will ensure that the action is as effective as possible.

  1. Read ALL the blogs and lead magnets available on our website. Familiarise yourself with the content and understand how each lead magnet can benefit potential clients.
  2. Create personalised links and QR codes for each lead magnet following the instructions provided in Course #1. Save them in an organised fashion on all your devices, use a platform like Dropbox or Google for easy access.
  3. Motivation: Some lucky people wake up in the morning, spring out of bed and get right on point, but most people don’t! Whilst Motivation and Mindset are gigantic subjects all on their own, here are a few pointers that may be helpful:

 

Motivation

  • Remember Your Why.
    • Constantly remind yourself of the reasons you started this journey. Whether it’s financial freedom, more time with family, or personal growth, keep your “why” at the forefront of your mind.
  • Visualise Your Success.
    • Picture what your life will look like once you achieve your goals. Envision the purchases, holidays, debt-free life, or any other rewards that success will bring.
  • Create a Vision Board.
    • Compile images, quotes, and goals onto a vision board. Place it somewhere you see every day to keep your motivation high and your goals in sight.
  • Set Clear, Achievable Goals.
    • Break down your ultimate goal into smaller, manageable milestones. Celebrate each achievement to maintain momentum and motivation.
  • Keep a Motivation Journal.
    • Write down your progress, challenges, and victories. Reflecting on how far you’ve come can be a powerful motivator.
  • Surround Yourself with Positivity.
    • Engage with positive, supportive people. Join communities or groups where you can share experiences and stay motivated.
  • Reward Yourself.
    • Treat yourself when you reach a milestone. Rewards can range from small treats to bigger incentives, depending on the size of the achievement.
  • Stay Educated and Inspired.
    • Read books, listen to podcasts, and watch videos related to your goals. Continuous learning keeps you inspired and motivated.
  • Pin Up Your Goals.
    • Write down your goals and pin them up in a visible place. This constant reminder will keep you focused and motivated.


 

Step 2: Identify Potential Clients and Collaborators

  • Think about who you already know that could benefit from our service or should be reading one of the lead magnets. These could include friends, family, colleagues, or acquaintances.
  • Introduce the concept to them by sharing your personalised link or QR code. Keep your message concise and compelling, encouraging them to scan the code or click the link to learn more.
  • Diary a follow-up to discuss any questions they may have, obligating them to read the information by a certain date/time.

  1. Write a List and Keep Tabs: Start by creating a list of potential clients and collaborators who could benefit from our service. This could include professionals in industries such as real estate, travel, hospitality, transportation, and more. Keep track of their contact information and any relevant details using a simple Excel or Google Sheet, or consider using a CRM (Customer Relationship Management) tool like HubSpot for more advanced tracking and management.

  2. Schedule Calls or Appointments: Once you have your list, schedule calls or appointments to discuss the opportunity with each potential client or collaborator. Be respectful of their time and availability, and aim to set up meetings that are convenient for both parties.

  3. What to Say: When reaching out to potential clients and collaborators, it’s important to be clear, concise, and compelling. Here are three examples of how to approach different types of collaborators:

    Example 1:

    1a: Real Estate Agent (Friend)

    You: “Paul, I need you to see something, it will be AMAZING for you! It’s about the languages you already speak!”
    Paul: “OK?”
    You: “Check this out and let’s talk about it this afternoon at 5, is that good for you?”

    1b: Real Estate Agent (Cold Outreach)

    You: “Hi, can I grab a moment with you to ask a couple of questions and show you something?”
    Agent: “OK.” (If no, ask when would be a good time)
    You: “You speak loads of languages, right?”
    Agent: “Of course!”
    You: “Great, you’re awesome! That tells me you have loads of clients that don’t speak Spanish, right?”
    Agent: “Most of them! Lol”
    You: “Great! I’d like to send you information about a telephone language service that can help them while paying you commission for referrals. Can we arrange a quick chat after you’ve seen it? How about at 6 o’clock later today?”

    Example 2:

    2a: Travel Agent (Friend)

    You: “Hey Sarah, have you got a quick minute? I’ve stumbled upon something that I think could be a game-changer for your travel business!”
    Sarah: “Sure, what’s up?”
    You: “It’s all about languages and how they can help you serve your clients even better.
    You: Can I send you a link with the details and discuss it with you this afternoon once you’ve had a look?
    You: What time?”

    2b: Travel Agent (Cold Outreach)

    You: “Hi there, my name is [Your Name] and I work with a company that specialises in language services. I noticed you’re in the travel industry and thought you might be interested in learning more about how we can help you better serve your clients who speak different languages, whilst gaining an additional income stream for you, with no cost to you.
    You: May I send you some information and would you be open to a quick conversation to discuss further after you’ve seen it?”

    Example 3:

    3a: Car Rental Company Worker (Friend)

    You: “Hey Mike, quick question for you – do you ever come across customers who struggle with language barriers when renting cars?”
    Mike: “All the time, especially with international visitors!”
    You: “Well, I’ve come across something that might make your life a whole lot easier.
    You: Can I send you a link with the details and discuss it with you this afternoon once you’ve had a look?
    You: What time?”

    3b: Car Rental Company Worker (Cold Outreach)

    You: “Hello, my name is [Your Name] and I work with a company that offers language services tailored to the travel industry. I noticed you work with car rentals and thought you might be interested in learning about how we can help you provide better service to your international customers, whilst creating an additional income stream for you with no cost to you.
    You: Would you be open to a brief discussion to explore this further?”

3. Avoid Bothering Friends and Family:

It’s tempting to share this exciting opportunity with your inner circle, but bombarding friends and family with business propositions can strain relationships and dilute your message, unless there is a specific tie-in that makes sense.

Instead, focus on building your business independently and let your success speak for itself.

Why?

  • Maintain Personal Relationships.

Keep your friendships intact by sparing your loved ones from constant business pitches. It’s important to separate your personal and professional lives to maintain healthy relationships.

  • Preserve Your Credibility:

Constantly pitching to friends and family can make you appear desperate or pushy, damaging your credibility as a business professional. Preserve your reputation by respecting their boundaries and avoiding unnecessary solicitation.

When to Involve Them

 

  • Wait for Curiosity:

As your success grows and your income increases, friends and family will naturally become curious about your newfound prosperity. When they start asking questions about your source of income, that’s your cue to share your success story and offer to help them achieve similar results.

  • Offer Expertise:

Position yourself as an expert in your field by demonstrating your success and knowledge. Once friends and family express interest, offer to guide them through the process and share your strategies for success. By waiting for their interest, you ensure that they’re receptive to your message and more likely to take action.

Your Role as the Expert

 

  • Lead by Example:

Showcase your success as proof of concept. By demonstrating your achievements, you inspire others to follow in your footsteps.

  • Provide Guidance: 

Once friends and family express interest, offer to mentor them through the process. Share your insights, strategies, and resources to help them replicate your success.

By avoiding constant pitches to friends and family, you preserve personal relationships and maintain your credibility as a business professional

 

4. Follow-Up and Maintain Relationships:

After your initial outreach, be sure to follow up with each potential client or collaborator to discuss the opportunity further and address any questions or concerns they may have. Building and maintaining strong relationships is key to long-term success in business.

 

 
 

Step 3: Set Up Social Media Profiles and Pages

A) Follow the guidelines outlined in Course #2 to create and optimise your social media profiles and pages.

B) Prepare and schedule posts that mix official content with other valuable content, such as beautiful images, memes, or language tips. Keep your audience engaged and entertained while promoting your referral links.

Creating a strong social media presence is essential for reaching your target audience and expanding your network.

Follow these steps to establish your presence on social media platforms:

  • 1. Prepare Your Content

Before setting up your social media profiles, prepare your content arsenal. Explore the resources available on the Media Resources page and choose content that resonates with your target audience. From engaging articles to eye-catching graphics, select content that showcases the value of the services you’re promoting.

Additionally, create your own content that highlights your personal experience and expertise. Share success stories, testimonials, and insights that demonstrate the benefits of the services you offer. Remember to maintain a balance between promotional content and valuable, informative posts that provide genuine value to your audience.

  • 2. Create and Optimise Your Profiles

Once you’ve gathered your content, it’s time to create and optimise your social media profiles. Choose platforms that align with your target audience and business objectives. Popular platforms like Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, LinkedIn, and Twitter offer unique opportunities to connect with different audiences.

When creating your profiles, ensure consistency across platforms by using the same username, profile picture, and branding elements. Optimise your profiles with relevant keywords, descriptions, and links to drive traffic to your referral links and landing pages.

  • 3. Schedule Your Content

Consistency is key to maintaining an active presence on social media. Use scheduling tools like Hootsuite, Buffer, or Sprout Social to plan and automate your content posting. Create a content calendar outlining your posting schedule and themes to ensure a steady flow of engaging content.

Remember to mix promotional content with informative and entertaining posts to keep your audience engaged. Schedule posts at optimal times when your target audience is most active to maximise reach and engagement.

  • 4. Join Relevant Groups and Forums

In addition to posting on your own profiles, engage with existing communities by joining relevant groups and forums. Look for groups that cater to your target audience, such as expat communities, travel enthusiasts, or business networking groups.

Before joining, review the group guidelines and observe the discussions to understand the community dynamics. Once you’ve familiarised yourself with the group, participate in conversations, share valuable insights, and establish yourself as a helpful and knowledgeable member.

When the time is right, subtly introduce your referral links or share relevant content from our website. Avoid spammy or aggressive tactics and focus on building genuine relationships within the community.

  • 5. Track and Evaluate Your Progress

As you engage on social media, track your progress and evaluate the effectiveness of your efforts. Monitor key metrics such as engagement, reach, and click-through rates to gauge the impact of your posts.

Regularly review your social media strategy and make adjustments based on performance data. Experiment with different types of content, posting times, and engagement tactics to optimise your results over time.

By following these steps, you’ll establish a strong presence on social media and effectively promote your referral links to your target audience.

 
 

Step 4: TAKE MASSIVE ACTION!!

By performing the tasks and methodically going through the plan regularly, you will maximise your chance of success.

Remember, Zero Action = Zero Results, definitely and every time!

– Start by aiming to get one new subscriber per month, then increase your goal to one per week, and eventually one per day. Every new subscriber adds to your regular, monthly earnings, ensuring continuous growth.

– Stay consistent and proactive in promoting our service and your personalised links. The more action you take, the more commissions you’ll earn.

Taking massive action is crucial for driving results and achieving your goals. However, it’s equally important to make your actions count by focusing on targeted strategies.

 
 

THE BATTLE PLAN:

Follow These Steps to Make Sure Your Massive Action Is Effective:

 

  • 1. Define Your Target Groups

Start by identifying your target groups or niches based on your referral program’s focus areas. Whether it’s real estate agents, travel agents, or language schools, choose specific groups that are most likely to benefit from your services. Decide the order and only start with ONE at a time. Once you have established your campaigns and processes, it will be easy to add the next group.

  • 2. Develop a Comprehensive Action Plan

Once you’ve identified your target groups, develop a comprehensive action plan tailored to each group’s interests and preferences. Outline your goals, objectives, and key strategies for reaching and engaging with each group effectively.

For example, if your first target group is Real Estate Agents, your action plan may include:

– Posting your referral link and QR code to relevant articles on all platforms frequented by real estate agents.

– Also sharing relevant content such as beautiful properties or real estate market insights to attract their attention.

– Researching and compiling a list of local real estate agents in a specific area. Visiting or contacting them to introduce yourself and our services via your personalised link or QR code. Agree a follow up to ensure they read the article

  • 3. Focus on One Group at a Time

Instead of trying to reach every potential collaborator at once, focus on one target group at a time. Concentrate your efforts on creating a comprehensive action plan and posting strategy for each group before moving on to the next.

By focusing on one group at a time, you can not only concentrate and get into a rhythm, but you can allocate your resources more effectively and ensure that your actions are targeted and impactful.

By trying to do too much at once, your efforts and message will become diluted and ineffective. Patience is the key! Big things take time…

  • 4. Implement Your Action Plan

A plan is useless without action! Now you have your action plan in place, it’s time to put it into action. Execute each step of your plan with precision and dedication, leveraging the resources, tools and support available to you.

For example, if your action plan involves reaching out to real estate agents, schedule time each day to visit or contact agents in your target area. Be consistent in your efforts and track your progress along the way.

  • 5. Evaluate and Adjust

As you implement your action plan, regularly evaluate your progress and adjust your strategies as needed. Monitor key metrics such as engagement, response rates, and conversion rates to gauge the effectiveness of your actions.

Based on your findings, make adjustments to your approach, fine-tuning your messaging, timing, and tactics to optimise results. Continuously learn from your experiences and adapt your strategies to maximise your impact.

  • 6. Repeat the Process

Once you’ve successfully engaged with one target group, repeat the process with the next group on your list. Apply the lessons learned from previous experiences to refine your approach and improve your outcomes with each iteration.

By taking massive action and making it count, you’ll make significant strides toward achieving your goals and building a successful referral network.

  • 7. Maintain Open Dialog

Communicate your successes AND your struggles back to the central team and make sure to ask for help if you need it. The team is here to support you and have a vested interest in YOU! They want you to earn as much commission as possible as this will be a direct result of you having brought new clients – so they will always be happy to help, or even take over any situation that you feel you want them to.

 
 

Do’s and Don’ts

Do’s

  • Do Take Valuable Action.
    • Consistently take meaningful steps that contribute to your goals and growth. Focus on activities that drive results and build momentum.
  • Do Be Consistent with Your Efforts.
    • Persistence is key. Regular and sustained effort over time will yield better results than sporadic bursts of activity.
  • Do Admit When You Don’t Know the Answer.
    • If a prospect asks a complicated question you don’t know the answer to, be honest. Tell them you’ll find out and get back to them as soon as possible or arrange for someone from the central team to discuss it with them.
  • Do Trust the System.
    • The system is designed to handle the heavy lifting for you. Trust in the process and use the tools and resources provided to make the sale effectively.
  • Do Use the Provided Resources.
    • Leverage the ready-made content, templates, and courses available to you. They are there to make your job easier and more efficient.
  • Do Use The Team to Help You.
    • Ask the team to call prospects to discuss our services instead of doing it yourself. Your job is to connect them to the relevant page on the site, and we do the rest.
  • Do Focus on Connecting Prospects.
    • Concentrate on guiding prospects to the relevant page on the site where they can get detailed information and sign up. This is how the system is designed to work, ensuring a smooth and professional process.

Don’ts

  • Don’t Get into Complicated Discussions.
    • Avoid deep, complicated conversations with prospects. Direct them to your personal link and let the system handle the details. If necessary, tell them the central team will call them and ask for the best time to do so.
  • Don’t Make Promises You Can’t Keep.
    • Only make promises you are 100% sure you can fulfil. For example, never guarantee an immediate callback for specific discussions; instead, schedule a time and confirm once the team is available. Nor should you agree that we’ll add a new language to the service, send them via your link to the Add My Language page to request it.
  • Don’t Neglect to Follow Up.
    • After any interaction, make sure to follow up. It shows professionalism and keeps the prospect engaged and informed.
  • Don’t Ever Make Negative or Derogatory Comments Online.
    • Always maintain a positive and professional demeanour online. Remember, anything you post can remain on the internet indefinitely.
  • Don’t Spread Yourself Too Thin.
    • Focus on one target group or campaign at a time. Concentrated efforts are more effective than trying to tackle everything simultaneously.
  • Don’t Ignore Feedback.
    • Pay attention to feedback from prospects and the central team. Constructive criticism can help you improve and refine your approach.
  • Don’t Try to Sell, Just Connect.
    • Your role is to connect prospects to the relevant page on the site. Let the system and the team handle the sales process. Saying less is more; focus on guiding them to the right information.
