Ladies and gentlemen, please help me welcome…

Doing your first introduction at your local network marketing meeting? Or are you a seasoned speaker at your direct sales events?

When new Distributors begin stepping into leadership roles, they frequently are tasked with introducing a speaker at a weekly event. And many don’t have a clue what to do.

Please bear in mind the introducer’s job is to inform the audience why they should listen to the speaker.

During presentations and trainings please keep your introduction focused on the speaker’s business accomplishments.

*  If you are introducing a newer-tenure Distributor, mention any rank advancements or awards they have received in your company thus far; to build their credibility you can also talk about their commitment, energy, and network marketing goals.

*  Avoid the trite “lovely and talented mother of three” types of remarks unless you are willing to introduce the men as “handsome and talented father of three.”

I hold a Competent Communicator ranking in Toastmasters International, competed in several speech contests, and have been the Master of Ceremonies for several speaking events. Here are some guidelines I learned from members of my Toastmasters clubs.

* Mention the speaker’s name at the END of the introduction. When the audience hears the name, it is the signal to applaud the speaker’s entry.

(Biography paragraphs on a book cover or at the end of a magazine article mention the name FIRST. In speaking, you mention the name LAST.)

* Ask the speaker ahead of time what they would like for their introduction. If the speaker provides a written introduction, read it word-for-word. Don’t add ANYTHING, because you might inadvertently reveal a quality or story that they wanted to unveil during their speech.

* Make the quality and length of introductions consistent for all speakers during an event. This may require introducers to coordinate ahead of time. A glowing introduction filled with the speaker’s credibility signals the audience to pay attention & take notes… and a lackluster introduction subtly signals to take a restroom and smartphone break.

* The podium/speaking area is always occupied during a speaking section of an event. Either an introducer, master of ceremonies, or a speaker is in that physical spot.

* Introducer starts the applause, stays at the podium, and keeps the applause active until shaking hands with the speaker when she/he arrives at the mic, then introducer leaves the podium area. Speaker rides or walks (NO RUNNING) with energy to the podium, crossing in front of the introducer if their paths must cross.

* Speaker thanks the INTRODUCER: say something like “Thank you for that glowing introduction!” and begin your remarks.

How would a corporate interviewer describe network marketing?

On Monday I had a brainstorm: how would the Human Resources department of a large corporation describe network marketing distributorships?

Let’s listen in as the fictitious interview is drawing to a close…



“… And now it’s time to discuss the details of your role in our company. Instead of a per-hour or annual rate, I will offer you a position only 5% of adults are ready for.

“You can join our Senior Manager Mentorship program. Your role will be to open and build a new Senior Manager Division of our company. You will pick your Mentor, and they will coach you in getting started and steer you toward ongoing training for you and your Marketing Team.

“You will be a talent scout as you search for and interview your choice of people who will comprise your Marketing Team. Additionally your duties include building a group of customers via Outbound Sales Methods (OSM) for yourself and coaching each Marketing Team member to do the same.

“The easiest way to create your Personally Enrolled Customer Base (PECB) is to introduce people to our fantastic product line while you are searching for Marketing Team members. Encourage the customers to acquire a subscription, as that will give them the best price and smooth out their cashflow for heavy-activity months.

“Let’s talk about your financial compensation. We are lifting the cap on your income and allowing you to build your income and team to the size you want. As a Senior Manager Trainee, you will be Paid for Performance for your own efforts, receive bonuses as your Marketing Team grows, and you will automatically receive a percentage of the product purchasing activity of your team members and their customer bases.

“Additionally there is a revenue-sharing program based on the global customer volume, which is available to Managers and above who qualify for this bonus program.

“You will earn the Product Purchase Percentage Commissions (PPPC) whether you show up to work or not, provided you maintain a very reasonable Outbound Customer Volume. This means you will be paid whether you are working, playing, or sleeping, whether on or off the planet. Same thing goes for vacation, personal leave, taking care of a sick child, or caring for an elderly family member. This time flexibility gives you unlimited amounts of leave that needs no approval from the management.

“You can build your Senior Manager Division at the speed you need. The headquarters will provide ongoing support & training for you, your customers. and your Marketing Team members.

“All your paychecks and promotions are calculated by the computer system in the headquarters building. All Marketing Team members have the same pay scale for identical promotion levels. If the computer says you fulfilled the activity, you receive the reward. No favoritism nor nepotism to worry about here.

“You determine your schedule. Whether you want to work from a coffee shop at 10am or from the beach at noon, you have that flexibility. You can also build your Division with part-time or full-time effort and in any country or territory we have legal approval to operate in.

“Here is one of the best financial benefits. Unlike an employee situation, you are classified as a business owner and have the ability to receive the same types of tax advantages as larger and well-known corporations (please check with your CPA for the details and any limitations). This position has the capability to transform common expenses such as car mileage, office supplies, meals & entertainment & travel for business reasons, books, and business seminars, into tax writeoffs, if handled properly. Of course, talk to your CPA or tax professional to learn the details for your situation.

“Your tax professional will be interested to know this. Your Marketing Distributor position can be sold by you, or you can will it to your heirs. With us you are building a leveraged asset, not simply another Division of our company. This rare ability truly makes us stand out in the business world as well as in the profession itself.

“As for advancement, after fulfilling the requirements of the Senior Manager position, we will automatically promote you to an Executive position when you help 5 new people fulfill the Senior Manager requirements. There are some Team Volume and Customer Volume requirements as well.

Are you ready to get started?”
