TEAM: Sling, Squeeze and Side Action
I’ve always been curious about the stacking approach that got Orrin and company kicked out of Amway. I was recently provided with an explanation of the following TEAM Approach: Sling, Squeeze and Side Action.
Want to know how Orrin Woodward and Chris Brady are teaching people how to build their TEAM/LIFE/MonaVie business? Read on!
For ex-TEAM members, I know this might be painful, but imagine for a minute that you back at a TEAM Major Function. Orrin and Chris are pacing around the stage, explaining this new method that will take your business to the nuclear level. Now envision one of these “leadership gurus” saying the following:
Everyone building the business, shows the plan (STP) to as many people as you can.
Do not worry about a maybe or a no!
We have a plan!
Let’s say you have 3 people/leaders showing the plan. When one of you gets a YES, you go back and squeeze whoever was a MAYBE into the business. Then, you squeeze whoever was a NO last.
So in your group, for example the plan was shown to the following people:
- A = NO
- B = MAYBE
- C = YES
- D = MAYBE
- E = NO
- F = NO
- G = MAYBE
- H = MAYBE
- J = Haven’t Shown To Yet
As a team when you finally get a yes (C), you and others showing the plan, would call up H and say:
“Hey H the business is working and we have someone gettting started today, If you want to get in and hold your spot you would have one person under you.”
You may say, “We will build it with you through you and for you if you are a leader.” With some luck, you’ll convince H, and he’ll say, “Sure I guess I could get in and drink some juice and see what happens.”
Next we go to G and use a similar script:
“Hey G, the business is rockin if you would like to get in and hold your spot, I have 2 people that would be on your team.”
So G says YES.
Next you and your leaders go to D and B and do the same thing. who say YES. Now you have 5 people saying YES and who have become new distributors.
Now you have a plan to show to J, tonight. So when you show J you tell him:
“Hey J! I have 5 people getting started today, so if you get started today, you will have 5 people underneath you. The business is exploding!”
And he says YES. Be sure to invite him to the next meeting and get him on system too if at all possible.
Finally, we come to those people who said NO. Lead with this script:
“Hey buddy I know you were not interested, but I now have 6 people getting started in the business. I know you didn’t think it works, but I am telling you it is exploding. You wouldn’t want to miss this opportunity, would you? I tell you what, you will have 6 people in your business if you get started today!”
Guess what? Mr. No finally says YES. As a result, he gets in on top of the group. The same script is used for the other people who said NO.
What we’re doing is using the guy who said YES (H) to squeeze others into making a YES decision too. As for the first guy who said YES? C’s reward? We place him at the bottom of the TEAM. Too bad.
The above is called Sling and Squeeze.
Side Action is what occurs when you sling and squeeze and build numbers because then a guy has believes the business works without a lot of effort at first, so He may go out and build a second leg. When this happens you get Side Action in your group (in other words second legs being built by some).
So this is how the group may be registered into the TEAM. Current group and then add:
- A (NO)
- E (NO)
- J (You just showed him the plan)
- F (Maybe)
- B (Maybe)
- D (Maybe)
- H (Maybe)
- C (YES)
This is why people are not registered right away. This is stacking, TEAM-style.
TEAM encourages people to show the plan, show the plan and not to worry about the results. The leaders, they know how Sling and Squeeze works, and if you do it the right way, there will be times when 12 people can get started all at once.
Of course, these people getting started don’t know what the heck they are doing; they are probably thinking that their leaders are going to do the building all for them. This is why TEAM pushes the System on them hard from the get-go.
Why do Orrin and Chris tell you to secure people with the System? Because if they weren’t brainwashed by the CD’s, books and seminars, they would get off of autoship the minute they receive their first credit card statement! Once they get on the System, however, their chances of getting brainwashed… or brainflushed… becomes quite high.
Remember, TEAM doesn’t care what product is being peddled through the partner MLM company. TEAM is concerned about selling tools and function tickets.
In TEAM Approach Volume, we’ve shown how placing bulk 1000 point / 12 case orders can give the new guy cash to go on System and allows the leaders to hit higher and higher levels. When the new guy goes Star 1000, he’ll have false recognition, think he’s on to something big, and gets further sucked into being a TEAM zombie.
Add it all up, and you have an interesting approach to building the business. Does Sling, Squeee and Side Action work well? Well enough that this stacking method is one reason why got Orrin kicked out of Amway/Quixtar and well enough for him to go Black Diamond in three months in MonaVie.
Ex-TEAM members. Does any of this make sense? Was this what was taught to you by Orrin and his TEAM leaders? Leave your comments below!
Update: I found this TEAM member’s description of Sling, squeeze and Side Action.
Read it and compare with what we have described here! TEAM Alpha Omega closed its blogspot account and moved the article over here.
