Last night, on the 9th of February 2012 history was in the making. 34 teams from across Europe gathered together in a united effort to build their businesses for just one hour. In fact, half of that time was simply talking about it. We spent just 30 minutes setting appointments for people to hear a presentation within the next 7 days.
I need you to know that there are some teams (I have counted about eight) that are yet to submit to me their final numbers, so the outcome is in fact higher than what I am about to share with you. But here we go! In just 30 minutes of appointment setting, our wonderful Nikken Consultants set a total of 647 appointments! And yes…there are more appointments to be confirmed with me! What a tremendous result. I am so proud of all of you that participated and I want to shout from the rooftops that NIKKEN Consultants are the BEST in the world! What an incredible achievement. I literally could not get to sleep last night.
Now, we need to be sure to follow up with these appointments and fulfil as many as possible with the clear goal of it leading to an enrolment. We will confirm in 7 days time who the winning team is based upon the number of appointments they fulfilled. We of course do not want to reward cancellations. Needless to say, there were some incredible team results. I should also point out my absolute pleasure in seeing individuals who couldn’t get a team together that joined in and said they were a part of the European team and inspite of not qualifying for a prize they wanted to be a part of this and do the work. Thank you! You made a difference.
If you missed out – please be sure to get your teams together for our next call. It will be on Tuesday the 13th of March at the same time and on the same numbers. We will email out to you all in our March Enews the numbers and a reminder.
I truly believe this is going to dramatically change the business in Europe. Yes, it will reveal some of our inadequecies. How do we respond when people cancel, when they throw out concerns or say no. This will give us some need to train a little more. How do we help someone commit and say YES. We may find that we need to work on that a little too. I would suggest to you for reference, that we should work towards a goal of getting a 30% conversion rate from appointment to enrolment. If you get that – you are on track. But all that aside – what a significant result that everyone should be so proud of.
I want you all to spread this message and spread it fast – Nikken Europe is on fire! Jump in and burn brightly with us or step aside and feel the heat of someone elses success singe your eyebrows as they burn on past! We are cranking up the activity and our wonderful Consultants are showing us what they are made of! What a pleasure it is to be involved with Nikken! Thank you all and – well done!!!! Let’s say it one more time (because it sounds so good) 647 appointments in 30 minutes. Love it.
