If you think about everything this business can do to enrich the lives of others – through extra income, self-confidence, personal growth, recognition, friendships, and flexibility – we really owe it to the women we meet to share something that can improve their lives.  

Giving other women the chance to be in control of their schedule and finances can be a true driving force behind your business and success. Get ready to learn top tips on building your team and sharing this amazing opportunity with the women in your life.  

Why Sponsor?

As your success and excitement about your new business grows, you may find that it’s the perfect time to spread the word and get some friends to join you. If you know someone that’s interested, or could benefit from, becoming a Consultant, reach out to them! You’ll have a built-in support system, someone to learn and grow with – and you’ll both make some extra income along the way!

Benefits of Sponsoring

Most women join Pure Romance for the ability to earn extra money, but what they find is much more than what they expected: 

  • New friendships and connections 
  • More time with family and friends 
  • Higher self-confidence 
  • Enhanced intimate life 

Sharing this opportunity with other women is a way to help make their dreams become a reality. Not sure how to get started talking about the opportunity? Check out this Sponsoring Presentation and use it to help guide your conversations in an impactful informative direction.

As your team grows, so do your rewards. Check out your markets Pay Plan (US/PRCAN/AU/NZMX) for more info on rewards, bonuses, and incentives. 

Can I Sponsor?

Anyone can sponsor!

Before you consider sponsoring, it’s understandable to have a few questions or concerns:

“I’m new to the business, how can I train someone else?” 
“I feel like I would need to know EVERYTHING.” 
“I’m afraid I won’t know how to answer questions.” 
“It sounds like too much work to handle.” 

These questions are natural – and valid. But the tools you need to be a successful sponsor have already been created, and are ready to empower you with the ability to empower others. 

Being a sponsor isn’t about having all the answers all the time, or even knowing how to lead. It’s about going on a journey together, learning from each other, and growing as both people and Consultants. 

Also keep in mind that you’re part of a community of supportive women that want nothing but the best for you. You can always lean on your sponsor, upline, sister Consultants, and trainings whenever you feel you need the extra support! 

Start sponsoring now to be rewarded later! 

Finding Sponsoring Leads at Parties

Your parties are the best place to find Consultant leads. You are the main attraction, and everyone is there to listen and learn about what you have to offer – and have some fun, of course! By adding just a few more details about the business throughout your party, you can maximize the opportunity to promote the business and achieve the best sponsoring leads. 

Flow With the Party

Your parties will have a similar format each time you do them. Over time, you’ll perfect this flow and have your demo down. During your presentation, be sure to plant a few seeds to bring up the opportunity with your hostess and guests in a way that seems natural and genuine. 

By arriving at your parties early, you’ll have time to mingle with your hostess and guests before you get started. Observe and listen to them before, during, and after each party. Listen to conversations for hints that someone might benefit from joining your team: 

“I bet you love your job.”  
“I hate my job”  
“I’m so glad to have the opportunity to get out of my house”  
“I could use some extra cash”  
“This is my fourth party this year!” 

These are great opportunities to strike up a conversation with a guest in the Shopping Room, and introduce her to the idea of becoming a Consultant. 

Pre-Party

A hostess is your number one potential new team member – they’ve already shown interest in Pure Romance by hosting their own party. In fact, 50% of hostesses become Consultants! As you plan the party together, you’ll build rapport with your hostess, which makes now the perfect time to plant the seed of becoming a Consultant. 

Get her thinking about how achievable starting her own business could be. She already knows people who will come to a party, she’ll have hands-on experience with many products, and an idea of how to talk about them. Plus, she’ll already have a taste of what she could make by becoming a Consultant herself. 

For example, during the planning or set-up stages of the party, you could say something like this:

Hey {Name}, tonight is going to be SO much fun! Your friends are coming over, and you’ll get some gifts from me. But, if you’re interested in doing what I do, watch my presentation and write down any questions you have about doing this yourself, so we can chat later.  

During the Party

There will be several opportunities during the party to plant seeds about, and generate interest in, joining your team.

  1. Refer to your Shopping Room Sign to hold you accountable for asking your three questions and it will let the guests know what to be on the lookout for  
  2. At the beginning of your presentation, be sure to ask if anyone has been to a party, or used Pure Romance products in the past – then ask what their favorite product is. When someone says their favorite product, hand it to them. When you get to the part that you would typically talk about the product you gave them, have them talk about it instead.  

Give them a lead-in question or two: 

What do you love about this product? 
What makes this product your #1 Pure Romance go-to? 

Once they’re done talking about their favorite product, tell them how well they did and that they just did their first product presentation! Without even knowing it, they just demonstrated to you, themselves, and their friends that they can talk about Pure Romance products with energy, enthusiasm, and knowledge – all of which are hallmarks of a successful Consultant.  

Your Sponsoring Activity

Your guests have just spent the last 20-30 minutes experiencing and learning about Pure Romance products. Now is a great time to utilize your Sponsoring Activity! Sponsoring Activities are a low-pressure way to get your guests thinking about the opportunity to have their very own Pure Romance business. It makes it easier for you to engage guests in a conversation about becoming a Pure Romance Consultant later in the party.  

One great example is the 8 Questions Sponsoring Activity. During this game you will pass out cards that have the most common questions you hear as a Pure Romance Consultant, and have the guests ask you those questions. In your answers, be sure to be genuine, honest, and talk about what you’ve experienced in your own Pure Romance journey. 

For Sponsoring Activities, the introduction is everything: 

Alright ladies, now it’s time for you to get to know me as your Pure Romance Consultant. We’re going to play a little game. Each of you will be given a card with a question about what I do. 

If you’re thinking to yourself, wow {your name} has a really awesome job or I could totally do what she does, then I need you to listen, and add a $ on your Customer Connection Card so we can connect in the Shopping Room.

Post-Presentation

The shopping room is a great place to reintroduce the idea of becoming a Consultant. Whether you’re talking with your hostess or a guest, you should have already planted seeds with your Sponsoring Activity, and now you can speak with them in a one-on-one setting. Be sure to talk to everyone that attends the party. You don’t want to make assumptions about how well someone would perform as a Consultant. Everyone deserves to be provided with the opportunity to change their life!  

If you’re speaking with a hostess, return to the conversation you had with her before the party.

For example: 

Hey {Name}, tonight was so much fun! It’s obvious that your friends love Pure Romance. They spent $X and booked X parties with me! If you were the Consultant, you could’ve made $X. With that being said, are you interested in joining and turning those X parties into your own? 

If she’s interested, send her your Personal Website link, where she can sign up 

  • Check with guests who already scheduled their own parties to see if they would prefer to have their friend host their party 

If you’re speaking with a guest, refer to their Customer Connection Card, and tailor your questions about the opportunity based on their interest level. For example: 

Did you have fun tonight?
It seems like you had a blast, and you were great at talking about some of the products, you’d make a great Consultant! Have you ever thought about doing what I do? 

The question doesn’t have to be uncomfortable. Be sure to put her at ease by asking these questions in a conversational way, and don’t make her feel bad if she’s not interested – there will still be opportunities to work with her down the line.

Finding Leads Outside of Parties

Work sponsoring into your daily routine. Be prepared and comfortable talking to anyone, in any scenario, about your business, and you’ll be well on your way to finding new potential team members! 

Whether you’re out shopping, at the movies, or on the sidelines of your child’s soccer game, talk to everyone about Pure Romance! Your Pure Romance commercial isn’t just to promote party bookings, you can also use it to start a sponsoring conversation. With a few small tweaks, you can transform your commercial, and use it to share the business opportunity. 

Once you’ve initiated the sponsoring conversation, ask for their contact information, add them on social media, and invite them to join your VIP Group.  

VIP Group 

Utilizing your VIP Group is a great way to find and create sponsoring leads. When you’re posting fun, exciting new content and showcasing your benefits, you’re going to draw people in.  

Example Posts:  

Who is looking for some extra income right now & can use an extra $200-$300 a month?  

Who needs a side hustle to get a full tank of gas or to cover groceries?  

When someone comments on one of these posts, reply with a 3-4-word comment, then follow up with a private message like this:  

Hey {Name}, I saw your comment in the VIP Group about wanting some extra income. Are you looking for something part-time or full-time? 

Another way to find sponsoring leads within your VIP Group is to post more directly about looking for team members. You never know who is watching your posts from the background and wishing they were in your shoes. A great time to post is when Pure Romance is running a Consultant Kit sale!  

Social media is the fastest way to connect to a large network. Your goal is to continuously grow your VIP Group to fill your funnel with sponsoring leads, party leads and customer leads. Don’t forget to also keep in mind that you can find these leads on social media outside of your VIP Group. 

Use your Lead Connection Form to keep track of people that could benefit from the opportunity to become a Consultant – those that recently lost their job, need some extra cash, or who routinely engage with your posts are all top contenders. 

You never know when the time is right for someone in your network to join your team. 

Previous Team Members 

Another group that is worth presenting the opportunity to (again) are women that were previously on your team but are no longer Active. They are strong leads because you already know that they were interested in, and pulled the trigger on, becoming a Consultant at one point. Maybe it wasn’t a good time before, but now might be the right time to get them back on board. 

Even if they’re not currently interested, they may be good contenders to go into your sponsoring funnel, so you can circle back to them later and continue to present them with this opportunity. 

Yes, Maybe, No

No matter who you present the opportunity to become a Consultant to, they will respond with “yes,” “no,” or “maybe.” Let’s talk a bit about how to handle each of these responses, and the best practices to change those No’s and Maybe’s into Yes’s.

You Got a Yes 

If someone says “yes” to the opportunity – stop pitching and listen. You don’t need to keep going on about all the benefits of becoming a Consultant. She’s already sold on the idea. The next step is to direct them to your Personal Website where they can sign up. 

You Got a Maybe 

When someone says “maybe” to your pitch, it’s important to remember that this doesn’t mean “no.” Start to understand where she’s coming from, and present her with the various ways Pure Romance can improve her life. One great technique to use when someone says “maybe” is setting up a Connection Meeting.  

Connection Meetings are one-on-one meetings where you dive deeper into the opportunity. These meetings should be informal, but treated in a professional manner. 

Before your Connection Meeting, make sure you’ve printed out the Design Your Life Questionnaire, and have it ready to fill out during your meeting. Really listen to your potential new team member. The best thing you can do for yourself and your potential Consultant is to stay engaged in the conversation and keep your ears open.  

To maximize the interest of your potential team member, always consider the following: 

  • Focus the conversation on what is important to them 
  • Address any concerns they may have 
  • Share how Pure Romance could turn their dreams into reality 
  • Find out when they want to get started 

If they are still on the fence, they will enter your sponsoring funnel.  

Your sponsoring funnel is a group of women who have previously shown interest in becoming a Consultant. Make sure to stay in touch and follow up. You never know when the time will be right for them. A few things you can reach out about are: 

  • Personal catch-up 
  • Consultant Kit sales 
  • What’s holding them back from getting started 

1 in 10 women you ask will end up being a “yes,” so the more leads you have in your funnel, the more likely you are to experience the benefits of growing your team. 

You Got a No 

Even if the response to your pitch isn’t positive, don’t worry! Just because someone isn’t interested in becoming a Consultant doesn’t mean you can’t work with them in the future.  

Those who aren’t currently interested in becoming a Consultant can still be a customer or a hostess for you down the line! When someone says no, don’t take it personally. The “no” could mean “not right now.” The best way to keep them in your funnel is to stay positive and suggest alternatives: 

No worries {Name}, I totally understand how you feel! How about this? Since I know you love Pure Romance products and having a great time, would you be interested instead in some freebies and discounts for hosting a party with me?

Onboarding New Consultants

Congratulations on your new Consultant! This is an exciting time for your business. 

Now that she’s purchased a Starter Kit, it’s important to invest time in helping her get off to a successful start. After all, you already know what it’s like to be in their shoes, and how much there is to learn. 

Beginning with good business practices is vital to her success – and it’s in your best interest. As a Sponsor, you should be training your newest team member on how to be a successful Pure Romance Consultant. 

  1. Walk her through getting set up on the Online Office
  2. Have her work through the Get Started section of the Pure Romance Training Site 
    • Check on her throughout the process to see if she has any questions 
  3. Ask her how she would like to run her business 
    • In-person parties, virtual parties, digital selling, or a combination
    • Help her create her goals for her first 60 days in business 
  4. Make sure she goes through the Pure Romance Certification Program
  5. Invite her to all team and corporate events

Remember, when your team members succeed, you succeed too! 

Be a Resource 

You are the connection between your new team member and her new business. It’s important to understand that she’ll want guidance as she gets started. Stay in touch with her, invite her to shadow your parties, respond to calls and emails in a timely manner, and establish business hours so she knows when you’re available to answer questions. If you can’t answer her question or don’t know where to find the answer, recommend she contact our support team.  

Sponsoring is both exciting and challenging. It’s important to remember why you’re sponsoring in the first place – your goals, your team, and your future.

Opportunity Presentation

Feel confident talking about the opportunity

We created an Opportunity presentation you can use to walk someone through the various ways to make money as a Consultant!  

When you sit down to talk about the opportunity with a potential team member, it’s important to sell them on the value of the business they’re starting, rather than the discount of the kit they’re purchasing. The financially uncertain times we are living in have created a clear need in peoples’ lives for another stream of income. Your leads need to know how they can better support themselves and their families with this business.  

This presentation is more impactful face-to-face, so try to connect with your leads in person!
