Duties as a Sponsor

WHAT ARE MY DUTIES AS A SPONSOR?

 

Any Independent Consultant that sponsors other Independent Consultants must fulfill the obligation of performing a bona fide supervisory function. Training must be offered to the new Independent Consultants. Meetings or contact must occur on a regular basis. If the sponsored Independent Consultants are not in the immediate geographic area of the sponsor, frequent mail, e-mail and/or telephone contact should be maintained.

The sponsor must make certain that the new Independent Consultant has read and understands the Compensation Plan, has sound product knowledge and can function as a productive Independent Consultant of Indaba. Sponsors must have ongoing communication, contact and management supervision with their sales organizations.

Independent Consultants are encouraged to distribute information to their new Independent Consultants; but, the sending of newsletters or correspondence to any Independent Consultants of Indaba, (except Independent Consultants you have personally sponsored) without corporate approval, is strictly prohibited and may be cause for termination. Email contact with Independent Consultants other than those Independent Consultants who you have directly sponsored is strictly forbidden, unless you have written permission to email the Independent Consultant. Email blasting through your organization is strictly prohibited and may be cause for termination. Every Independent Consultant must ensure that they avoid giving the impression that they are acting as an agent for Indaba.

Examples of duties of supervision over new Independent Consultants might include, but are not limited to:

  • Review a new Independent Consultant's sales presentation and offer positive constructive advice.
  • Teach the principles of referral marketing so that the new Independent Consultant can duplicate them.
  • Share ideas that work for you.
  • Give ideas pertaining to opening up conversations with other people and sharing with them the opportunity to become involved as an Indaba Independent Consultant.
  • Set up (or organize) personal meetings. Use the telephone and have an upbeat conversation with the Independent Consultants in your Independent Consultant group.
  • Hold training sessions with experienced and new Independent Consultants. These are wonderful venues for sharing growth experiences and generating excitement.
  • Share success stories.
  • Share sales tips with your Independent Consultants.
  • Join your sponsored consultant's at company meetings and work together to help increase your new Independent Consultants confidence.
  • Help your sponsored consultant's train their new Independent Consultants.
  • Help your Independent Consultants sponsor new Independent Consultants for their organizations.
  • Set up joint opportunity meetings to draw bigger crowds and create more excitement within your organizations.
  • Share positive experiences of your efforts while building your income!

NOTE: At least twice yearly sponsors should be able to provide evidence of fulfilling sponsoring obligations. You MUST keep a log of fulfilling your obligations. The Company can review this log at any time. Failure to produce proof (in a timely manner) of fulfilling your sponsoring obligations may result in termination.

WHAT ARE THE TRAINING REQUIREMENTS THAT I WILL BE EXPECTED TO GIVE TO MY NEW INDEPENDENT CONSULTANTS?

When you sponsor a new Independent Consultant you should ensure that they are properly trained with regard to product knowledge, Company Policies and Procedures, sales strategies, ordering procedures and sound business practices.

Listen to their goals and ensure that you keep on file the most important reasons they desire to succeed. Have the appropriate telephone follow-up or face-to-face contacts required to start them on the right path to Indaba success! You should spend as much time with the new Independent Consultant as required to ensure that they will be able to successfully open a conversation to introduce Indaba to friends and strangers alike, and sponsor their own Independent Consultants.

Our business is built on sales to customers.

To grow your Indaba Global, Inc. business, you should:

  • Help the Independent Consultants in your organization learn to become better salespeople. The key to selling with our program is sharing knowledge about our great Indaba products! Make sure they can 'share' and sell well.
  • Recommend sales books.
  • Help them learn how to sponsor other Independent Consultants. Take them through the basic scripts for selling products, doing a demonstration of the products and sponsoring.
  • Understand the principle of Independent Consultant marketing. The basic concept of Independent Consultant marketing is to market your products and business opportunity to the people with whom you come into contact or with whom you "network" either in person or through the internet. Make sure that all new Independent Consultants understand and can teach the concepts. Provide them with the List of Business Building Books on the subject and provide insight on how you are growing and managing your business. With this knowledge they will have a better opportunity to increase their income, which in turn will increase your income!

Make sure that you have regular contact with your new Independent Consultants and others in your group to keep them motivated and to help them in the initial growth stages of their new business. You should suggest upbeat reading materials, including articles about how to succeed in business and Independent Consultant marketing.

Ask them about their short and long term goals. Help them to formulate their own Customer/Prospect List 100 (It's amazing how many people you know!) with a timetable for contacting all the people on it. Suggest that they subscribe all their friends to the Indaba electronic ezines and other free ways to build their database.

HAVE THEM SET THEIR OWN GOALS -- NOT YOURS!

Make sure that the goals your new Independent Consultants set are their personal goals and not your goals for them. Break down the goals into yearly, quarterly, monthly, weekly and finally -- a daily plan.

Winner's Philosophy

Sure and steady wins the race. Think about the story of the Tortoise and the Hare. Who was the winner at the end of the day? I always tell people, "If I had to choose between a persistent, consistent producer with average skills and a Super Sales Person who performs in spurts and starts -- I'll bank on the consistent person any day of the week!" Just do a little (or a lot) every day and sooner than you think -- you'll succeed!!!

When you want to climb a mountain all you have to do is be persistent and climb one step at a time at your own pace. This philosophy will always get you to your destination, whatever summit you wish to scale!

 

Indemnity Agreement

WHAT IS THE Indaba Global, Inc. INDEMNITY AGREEMENT?

As an Independent Consultant you agree to indemnify and hold harmless Indaba Global, Inc., its officers, directors, employees, or agents against any claim, demand, liability, loss, cost, or expense, including but not limited to attorney's fees, arising from or alleged to arise in connection with that Independent Consultant or any other Independent Consultant's Indaba Global, Inc. business.

 

Locations for Sale Adv Materials

MAY I DISPLAY THE COMPANY'S PRODUCTS OR LITERATURE WHEREVER I LIKE?

Only authorized materials may be used to promote Indaba. The follow guidelines must be followed strictly:

  1. Bulletin boards at retail stores are not suitable for displaying company materials unless management of the establishment gives their approval. The same rule applies to any other bulletin boards not in or on retail stores.
  2. Approved materials and products may be displayed at trade fairs or business trade shows. Indaba reserves the right to approve any use of its name or logo on banners, displays or signs. Prior approval must be sought and authorized in writing and an approval # must be issued for every public display. Note: This is only for displays of non-company issued materials BUT the company reserves the right to monitor and approve or disapprove of any displays or venues. The goal is to preserve the corporate professional image.

WHAT IS COMPANY POLICY REGARDING RETAIL STORES?

Displaying or selling Company advertising or products in retail stores (unless the Independent Consultant is explaining the products and their use) is strictly prohibited and will result in immediate termination. This policy does not prohibit a retail store owner from becoming an Independent Consultant. An active Independent Consultant must be available to demonstrate the product in any retail situation.

Exceptions to this rule are given only for the following, if there is a trained person on the premises to demonstrate the product range:

  • By appointment only businesses (such as learning institutions, professional offices).
  • All products must be inside the place of business.
  • All Business-building materials must be inside the place of business.

CAN YOU GIVE ME SOME EXAMPLES OF PLACES I AM PROHIBITED FROM DISPLAYING PRODUCTS OR LITERATURE (without permission from the store owners)?

Examples of prohibited places include but are not limited to:

  1. Supermarkets or convenience stores
  2. Drug stores
  3. Department stores
  4. Swap meets or flea markets unless company approved (indoors or outdoors)
  5. Shopping malls
  6. Shopping mall booths or kiosks (either permanent or temporary) unless prior approval is obtained.
 

Privacy Statement

I DO NOT WANT TO HAVE MY NAME RELEASED TO OTHER ORGANIZATIONS. WILL THIS OCCUR THROUGH THE sponsored consultant's SYSTEM?

By signing the Independent Consultant Application, each Independent Consultant agrees to abide by the Company's confidentiality regulations. The regulations are that an Independent Consultant's group or any other form of reporting to the Independent Consultant is strictly confidential and as such is never to be released to a third party directly or indirectly. To do so is grounds for termination. The reporting from the Company is proprietary information and is transferred to the Independent Consultants in confidence. The reporting shall not be used for any purpose other than to promote the interests of Indaba Global, Inc.

 

Product Claims

WHAT CLAIMS AM I ALLOWED TO MAKE REGARDING THE INDABA GLOBAL, Inc. PRODUCT RANGE AND COMPENSATION PLAN?

Independent Consultants may only make claims that are contained in official Indaba Global, Inc. literature. No other claims are to be made. The use of false or misleading statements about the products or Compensation Plan is strictly prohibited. It is strictly prohibited to represent hypothetical figures for projected income that could be derived from Independent Consultant marketing. This action is directly against the policy of fair business practices that Indaba promotes.

The Company's position is that the use of hypothetical income projections can be a de-motivating factor with new Independent Consultants. Many will not believe the claims or they will be disappointed if they do not achieve the figures projected. To keep our professional code of ethics of the highest standard, we strictly prohibit this practice.

The Company firmly believes that the generous Independent Consultant Compensation Plan does not need embellishment because the income potential is detailed and explained appropriately as it is stated in Company approved literature.

Independent Consultants should be especially careful never to make earning representations unless those figures are Company approved and are based on a verifiable track record of the average earnings of Independent Consultants in a particular geographic area.

WHAT CLAIMS CAN I MAKE REGARDING GOVERNMENT APPROVAL OF THE COMPENSATION PLAN?

Independent Consultants cannot state that any local, state or federal regulatory agencies have given any approval whatsoever. These government agencies neither approve nor disapprove of direct selling programs or compensation plans.

 

Restricted Selling Statement

AM I RESTRICTED TO SELLING ONLY INDABA GLOBAL, Inc. PRODUCTS?

As an Independent Consultant you are not specifically restricted from selling another company's product line. It must be noted however that Indaba Global, Inc. supports a highly ethical and professional image. The Company Directors feel that in order to show your best image while sponsoring and selling Indaba products you should be focused. Selling for multiple companies at the same time will not allow you to truly be focused. This will ultimately confuse the people you are trying to sponsor with regard to what you are trying to accomplish. They will wonder if you are sincere about the company or if you are still floating around trying to make a commitment to your goals and your Indaba business.

CAN I REPACKAGE INDABA GLOBAL, Inc. PRODUCTS?

Federal and state rules and regulations strictly forbid this practice.

ARE THERE ANY EXCLUSIVE TERRITORIAL RIGHTS THAT ARE ASSOCIATED WITH MY INDEPENDENT CONSULTANT STATUS?

There are no exclusive territories for marketing either the business opportunity or selling Indaba Global, Inc. products. No Independent Consultant shall imply or state that he/she does have an exclusive territory. All Independent Consultants have equal rights with regard to conducting their business and there are no geographic limitations for sponsoring new Independent Consultants within the United States of America and its Territories. No Independent Consultant shall be allowed to conduct business outside the regions detailed in the Terms and Agreements. To do so may violate the laws that govern a foreign country.

CAN I SOLICIT WITHIN MY ORGANIZATION FOR OTHER REFERRAL MARKETING COMPANIES?

This practice is strictly prohibited beyond your personally sponsored Independent Consultants and may result in termination. Our philosophy is that you lead by example. Your Independent Consultants will look to you for guidance. Do you want them bringing other business opportunities into your organization? They will do it if you do it!

DO I RECEIVE ANY COMPENSATION FOR SPONSORING NEW INDEPENDENT CONSULTANTS?

No compensation is rewarded for the act of sponsoring new Independent Consultants. Independent Consultants are compensated solely for Group Sales Volume according to the compensation structure of various levels within the Independent Consultants sales organization. (See the Compensation Plan for details).

 

Shipping Details

WHAT METHOD OF SHIPPING DOES THE COMPANY USE?

Indaba Global, Inc., when needed, ships by U.S. Mail, Fed-ex or UPS. Most of Indaba Global's business is performed via the internet and involves no shipping.

WHAT IS THE COST FOR SHIPPING?

Shipping costs vary and are costs that we cannot control. Periodic rate variances will occur. Independent Consultants will be notified of changes. The current rates will be available under separate cover and are posted on the Indaba web site.

WHAT DO I DO IF A COST ERROR HAS BEEN MADE ON MY INVOICE?

You must contact Indaba Global, Inc. within five business days and obtain an authorization number for your records for future correspondence of the matter.

WHAT DO I DO IF I RECEIVE DAMAGED GOODS?

The company will make every effort to ensure safe delivery of your products. We use a variety of different carriers. For example, USPS Mail has different rules than UPS. For all damaged parcels, please take a few photographs to document the damaged items, packaging, etc. These photos help to make the claims process much easier.

Contact your local USPS Post Master or visit www.ups.com (with your tracking #). Report the damage IMMEDIATELY!

With private shipping companies, almost always the shipping company is responsible for any goods that arrive damaged. The shippers take full responsibility for any damage that occurs after they take physical custody of the goods shipped. If this situation arises, contact the shipper immediately and follow these steps:

  1. Accept the goods for delivery.
  2. Document the description of the goods and damage in detail on the delivery receipt and make a note of the number used for shipping.
  3. Take the name of the person delivering the goods and their employee number with the time and date of the delivery and request that they acknowledge the damage with a signature.
  4. Save the damaged boxes for examination by the shipping agent.
  5. Make an appointment AS SOON AS POSSIBLE with the shipping company to have the damaged goods inspected.
  6. File a complaint with the shipping company - NOT WITH Indaba.
  7. If the damage is not immediate noticeable and the delivery person has already left, follow as many of the above steps as possible.
  8. Contact Indaba to report the damage with the L.D.I. number.

HOW DO I TRACE A LOST ORDER?

General guidelines for lost shipments are as follows:

  1. Wait two weeks for regular shipping of all telephone orders and after confirmation of receipt of all faxed or mailed orders before telephoning the Company. Wait five days for express delivery orders. Do not wait longer than 30 days for any order because the Company will no longer be able to trace it and the shipper will assume that it has been delivered. We will provide you with tracking number's for the majority of shipments by email on the day of shipping.
  2. After the waiting period, telephone Indaba's Customer Service Department. The Company will notify the shipper and file a claim.
  3. Products will either be replaced, a credit applied or a refund check will be mailed to you. This will only occur after the shipper has traced the goods and lodges their report with the Company.

WHAT DO I DO IF ONLY A PORTION OF MY ORDER ARRIVES?

Make a judgment call regarding the size of the missing products. If an item is missing that could have easily been placed in your shipped box, call immediately and report the discrepancy. However, if you think the item/s would not easily fit in the box you have received, wait for three days in case the boxes have been separated, then contact Indaba's Customer Service Department and follow the procedures in #2 & #3 above. Most often the additional boxes will arrive the very next day. You must count the number of boxes delivered if you sign for them. As soon as you sign that you have received a package you are responsible for it.

AM I RESPONSIBLE FOR DELAYS AND FAILURE TO DELIVER PRODUCTS IF THE CAUSE IS BEYOND MY CONTROL?

Indaba, or any of its Independent Consultants cannot be held responsible for failures in performance and/or delays when such are caused by circumstances beyond their reasonable control, including but not limited to: Riot, fire, strikes, labor disputes, death, weather related delays or incidents, curtailment of the usual source of supply, Governmental Orders or Decrees, or delivery stoppages.

The Independent Consultant must request a review process. Failure to do this is grounds for termination.

WHAT IS THE PROCESS FOR INVOLUNTARY TERMINATION?

This termination is effective when notification is mailed by certified mail to the Independent Consultant's current address of record on file with the company or when the Independent Consultant receives actual notice; whichever occurs first.

MAY I APPEAL THE DECISION OF MY TERMINATION?

Prepayment for this service is required. The decision of the panel will be final and binding and will not be subject to further review. The Independent Consultant must appeal to the panel before taking legal action regarding the termination. If the appeal is denied, the termination shall be effective as of the date of the company's original termination notice.

WHAT IS THE EFFECT OF TERMINATION?

Termination results in the loss of active Independent Consultant Status. With this loss the Independent Consultant loses any and all rights to compensation, sponsoring and benefits rewarded as an Independent Consultant of the Company.

The Independent Consultant's affiliate group organization will move up to the next Active Independent Consultant and will not revert to the original Independent Consultant if that Independent Consultant reapplies to the company after the waiting period.

Wholesale Rules

WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS FOR INDABA GLOBAL, Inc. INDEPENDENT CONSULTANTS?

There are no inventory requirements. The company realizes that Independent Consultants may want to purchase inventory in reasonable amounts to supply their clientele, but Indaba actively discourages the purchase of more products than can be sold within a short period of time.

The compensation plan was purposely designed to discourage any form of "buy-in" for the purpose of achieving any commission levels or bonuses. The company stresses sales as a means of achieving high visibility in your and enhancing your income.

WHAT IS THE 70 % RULE?

In order to qualify for commission and bonus checks, each Independent Consultant must certify that they have sold or consumed at least 70% of all previously purchased products.

AT WHAT PRICE SHOULD I WHOLESALE INDABA GLOBAL, Inc. PRODUCTS?

The company philosophy states that we want to "give customers excellent quality at affordable prices". With this in mind, Indaba Global, Inc.has suggested prices as a guideline for selling all of its products.

This is according to legal requirements. If opened products are returned, a brief letter from the client explaining the reasons for the return must accompany the returned products. Every Independent Consultant is responsible for honoring this guarantee. Failure to do so is grounds for immediate termination.

WILL INDEPENDENT CONSULTANTS BE REIMBURSED FOR HONORING THIS GUARANTEE?

Independent Consultants will retain for resale any unopened, undamaged goods from the customer. If the Independent Consultant wishes to be reimbursed for products that were used by the customer, the following procedure must be followed:

  1. E-mail or write to the Company's Service Department.

These fees and charges will be debited from the Independent Consultant's Indaba account or from the credit card on file with the company.

DO CUSTOMERS HAVE THE RIGHT TO CANCEL THE SALE?

By law, a buyer has the right to cancel certain sales without penalty prior to midnight of the third business day after the transaction. This rule covers consumer sales of $25.00 or more that occur away from the seller's main office. A sales receipt must be given to the buyer for every transaction. Please use the INDABA order form. This can be printed off of or downloaded from the INDABA web site In addition, the Independent Consultant must verbally inform the buyer of the three-day right to cancel at the time the buyer signs the contract of sale or purchases merchandise. The goods must be returned to the Independent Consultant in substantially good condition. If this occurs within 10 business days of receiving the three-day notice a full unconditional refund must be given. Failure to comply with the refund guidelines may result in forfeiture of any monies or product due for the refund.

If INDABA is forced to intercede on behalf of the customer due to the Independent Consultant's failure to comply with refund guidelines and the company refunds the money due to the customer, the Independent Consultant may be terminated. The monies due to the company will be deducted from the Independent Consultant's commission account or from the credit card on file at any time the company chooses.

WILL THE COMPANY REFUND MY MONEY FOR PRODUCTS I PURCHASED THAT HAVE NOT BEEN SOLD?

The following are the regulations regarding Independent Consultant returns:

  1. If products are returned for quality control reasons, the Independent Consultant may return the products within 30 days for a full refund (less shipping and handling costs).
  2. All products and promotional items will be replaced or fully refunded (less shipping and handling charges) within 60 days (sales materials excluded).

Telephone the Returns Representative at Indaba for the details pertaining to your state of residence. All inventory must be unopened and in resalable condition.
