MAIC2019: Why Being There in Person Makes All the Difference & How to Get More of Your Organization to Attend

Team I’d like to share with you an excellent guest blog post from Sarah Rose Stack which really drives home some key points related to the importance of attending events like International Convention in person – with your team. There’s absolutely no substitute for attending this event with your team, so I suggest everyone focus on getting everyone on your team to attend so you can use this event as a springboard to success. Be sure to share Sarah’s message with your team because it could be exactly what they need to hear to spark that billionth of a volt!!!

Keep Growing!

UnFranchise Owners come from all over the world to gain the key knowledge and experience that only a major event such as MAIC 2019 can deliver. From the time you arrive until you head home, the experience from MAIC can’t be matched. In just a few days, UnFranchise Owners attend main stage presentations, team meetings, breakout sessions, and seek every opportunity to network and gain knowledge from their peers and mentors. Each person’s experience and takeaways from the event are unique. Often times, you may feel that Loren or JR are speaking directly to you based on what you need to hear. That’s why we love to hear about your biggest takeaways and magic moments during the event.

Why Attend? 

By attending the live event, you open the door to more opportunities than if you simply watched the replay online. Replays are made available for UnFranchise Owners to refresh on what they’ve learned but are not a substitute for attending live events.  

When you attend live you experience:

  • Magic moments 
  • Powerful testimonials from successful UnFranchise Owners
  • Connections with like-minded people
  • Education from top leaders the field and in the company
  • Special breakout sessions and booth experiences
  • Networking opportunities with top leaders
  • The lightbulb goes off when you’re least expecting it
  • Strength, courage and support 

How to Promote MAIC with your Organization and Your Prospects

Getting your team to MAIC is as easy as 1-2-3. 

  1. Get your organization to Local Seminars and GMTSS Events.
    We build from event to event.  When UnFranchise Owners and guests attend local seminars and other GMTSS events, the speakers will promote the next big event and impress upon the audience how important it is to attend.  This can help to convey the major events importance to your people and provide more encouragement for them to attend. 
  2. Share Personal Experiences 
    Just like anything, people respond to personal testimonials, experiences and reviews more than information about the event/product/thing.  Share what you personally gained from attending events to humanize the event and inspire someone to attend. You can also share other testimonials such as the ones that people shared from our most recent event located here: https://bit.ly/2Wz2wDD
  3. Assist with Logistics to Attend
    Your prospect needs a ticket, a way to get there and a place to stay.  It’s easiest to sell a ticket when you have the physical ticket in hand, therefore, it’s always good to have 2 extra tickets that you have available to sell. Finally, you can help eliminate potential roadblocks by suggesting travel & hotel deals on your website or coordinating with others in your organization who are also attending.
