Some people feel confused when they hear the expression, “let the tools do the job.” Why is this case? Network Marketing is supposed to be a “person-to-person” business.
Today, modern technology allows us to make hundreds, or even thousands, of social networking “friends” by merely adding their names to our list of computer contacts. And when we wish to end one of these “friendships,” we simply delete that person’s name from our list.
“Technology” is simply a new and better way of doing things.
“Technology” is simply a new and better way of doing things. There are some things in Network Marketing sales you can do that better, and some that can be done better by using new technological tools.
Here is a great example of the use of “Technology.” Some police are using technology to make car chases less dangerous. One approach being tried involves compressed air launchers fitted into the grills of patrol cars. These fire GPS-trackable devices that stick to vehicles being pursued. Suspects can then be tailed at a safe speed.
What can we get from this? As much as possible, get the best technical tools for the job—and let that tools do their work.
Not everyone can be an expert about the products. Not everyone can be an expert about Network Marketing, the compensation plan, prospecting, etc. But everyone can be an absolute master of using good technical tools.
In recent years, businesses worldwide have struggled with poor economic conditions. They must also cope with rapidly changing technology and increased regional and global competition.
Use of technical tools in most instances does a better job.
Use of Technology in most instances does a better job than you can do in providing people with the right information the same way over and over again. What’s more, all your contacts can make use of the information, too. You can duplicate your actions very easily using all those technical tools. This makes it easy for your contacts to do the same thing with their people, and so on.
Technical Tools are convenient for prospects, as well. They are free to look or listen to information that is sent to them when they want, where they want. As a result, you spend less time per prospect and can contact that many more prospects in the same amount of time. This allows for good time management. Making good use of Technology enables you to handle all the repetitive explanations, so that you do not have to say the same thing over and over again.
A worker needs the right tool, and he must use it in the proper way. If while building a shed, for instance, you wanted to fasten two boards together, you would need more than a hammer and nails. You would have to know how to drive a nail into wood without bending the nail. But those technical tools handled properly help us to accomplish tasks with satisfying results.
Remember the saying, “let the tools do the job.” As with a carpenter, in Networking, different jobs require specific technical tools. Match the tool to the person’s needs, circumstances and style, and that’s the “right tool for the job.” Be flexible; choose your technical tools wisely.
The lesson? Having the right tool is essential.
