Top 5 Ways to Become a Successful Recruiter
1. Don't be afraid to ask!
This is the number one tip that can make you successful. If you don't ask, you won't know.
2. Always have materials on hand.
When talking with a potential member, having an application on hand that they can fill out right then will make you more likely to get their membership.
3. Get their contact information.
Having a phone number and address makes it easier to contact a potential member a few weeks later to see if they have any additional questions, and to encourage them again to join.
4. Use the Power of the People You Know.
Anyone that you do business with on a daily basis is a potential member. Have you asked your vet? Your neighboring producers?
5. Don't Be Afraid of the Tough Questions.
Potential members will respect you more, and therefore be more likely to join, if you can address the tough questions they have about your state association and NCBA. We offer talking points and updates on all the tough issues through our website and eUpdates. If you need more information, please contact the membership department.
