Product and Services Sell When You are “Passionate” and “Believe in Yourself”

One of the greatest challenges Independent Business Owners or (IBO) and Associates promoting health & Wellness products need to overcome in a network marketing program is the ability to retain your downline or business partners. Many people think a network marketing program means huge incomes and little work, which is why the turnover rate in multi level marketing companies is higher than any other industry. Another contributing factor may be that the buy in for most MLM opportunities is relatively inexpensive in comparison to what it cost to start a business or purchasing a franchise. While people have many reasons for walking away from a great business opportunity the most common reason for people is that something better comes along that looks easier and seems to require less work than building an organization. The Grass is Always Greener. But think about this for just a moment. What is it that first caught your eye and stirred into flame the initial excitement that you felt about a particular product or service? Perhaps it was the exquisite copy or video presentation. Or more than likely, it was the person presenting or their level of enthusiasm and conviction that came across in that ad copy or video. What Really Sells is a person’s ability to communicate effectively, while believing in them self with a heartfelt’ confidence. With the right kind of leadership training, organizational management and marketing system, you too could become a successful leader.

At least twice a year there is a new network marketing opportunity, (often promoted as still being in “Pre-Launch”) that comes out with the claim to be the best with a new and improved compensation plan. Every new product that is introduced is made available on the internet and in order to get this product to the consumer distributors are needed. After potential distributors understand the way network marketing works they often lose their interest and move on to programs that claim to take less working time and give you more opportunities to get rich overnight. We are all familiar with the old adage: Nothing for Nothing! However there are a hand-full of Network Marketing companies that have managed to stay around for decades. What is their secret and why do people continue to flock to them? Network Marketing Companies like Amway, Mary Kay, Avon, Usana and Prepaid Legal Services have stood the test of time. Although belly to belly marketing continues to sustain them, these companies are Network Marketing landmarks and maintain their relevance by remaking themselves through adaptations and embracing new marketing strategies that keep them in the running. But we must never forget that at the core of these veteran enterprises are the quality and integrity of their products, services and a proven system to market them effectively on line or off line.

Core Commitment: Those who have or utilize a “System” stand a better chance of beating the odds of failing or giving up or joining the 95% of those who do not succeed. Although challenging, it is a real possibility for you to be totally successful in building personal wealth for you and your family as a network marketer while working from home so long as you have a core commitment to work ‘hard’ and work ‘smart.’ In addition to having a good work ethic, successful entrepreneurs have a formula for success that has worked for them time after time no matter what the application or industry. Successful marketers on the internet make use of a “marketing system” or “funnel” to attract pre-qualified leads and prospects.

Don’t panic if you miss the deadline to get in on the ground floor of a business opportunity. The odds are that in another six months a new and more improved product will come out and you can get in on the ground floor of this product or as stated above, you can do your due diligence and research companies like Prepaid Legal Services who have been around for over thirty five years. No matter which opportunity you choose to pursue, you have to believe in your self and what you are selling in order to be successful with a network marketing system. If you personally use the product or service then it also pays dividends since you can offer first hand testimonials to your potential customers. After customers start to use the product then you can invite them to join the network, even if the only reason is to buy the product at wholesale next time they need it. Eventually the person may see the benefit of the network marketing opportunity and sell their own customers in turn on the idea of becoming a distributor while also building your downline sales. It can work by simply buying into a network marketing downline for the purpose of making money, but the more you invest in your self and demonstrate a genuine interest in a product, the more effort you will expend. It is only after you free yourself from limiting beliefs and discover the power leveraging your time, that you will become a living witness for other distributors and will help you to work harder and contact more people so that you will stay involved in sales, recruiting and personal development. This is why you must first believe in your self to see massive results and explode your downline and product sales.

1. Understand that people are looking for LEADERSHIP & Mentors that can actually show them how to make money online and offline. This is critical to your success. You must position yourself as a leader and offer your target market the training and marketing information they are seeking. Inexperienced people tend to wonder how they can teach marketing if they’re new themselves… You can go to ezine article directories like EzineArticles and search for articles on topics you want to learn. Read and learn the topics, and then turn around and teach what you just learned. As a new struggling marketer, you’ll still be positioned as a person who can teach them something they don’t know.

2. Know Your’ Target Market If you’re in the home based business industry promoting a direct sales or network marketing program, then you should know the hottest target market you can focus on attracting is the existing network marketer and online marketer. The time in your pipeline will be reduced with this target, they already believe in the industry so you won’t have to worry about going through that skeptical debate and most existing marketers are looking for marketing knowledge and information. By focusing on the existing marketer, you’ll still attract plenty of new marketers as well so you’ll benefit by attracting both targets.

3. Place Simple, Targeted Ads That Compel Your Target Market To Click This is where Attraction Marketing comes into play. Knowing your target market well will allow you to identify their main frustrations with their business and what benefits or solutions they are looking for. Phrase your ads in a way that you agitate a frustration and then offer a solution that solves their problem. To get to the solution they must click on your ad to get to your offer. Offering free “How To” information to marketers on learning traffic tactics and marketing skills in the form of a free email course, video series, recorded audios, etc… is a high conversion tactic.

4. Drive That Targeted Traffic To Your Own Lead Capture Page or Blog This is where most online marketers fail. Your company’s replicated lead capture page is NOT the answer. Not if you want to attract more opt-ins for less money. Your own personalized lead capture page, with accessible links on your personal blog, Free Video Boot Camp, Social Site Profiles on Facebook, Twitter, Myspace etc. and selected ad postings on Craigslist, Backpage and solo ads – should contain a “Direct Response Marketing” headline, subheadline and some key benefits about your offer. A free newsletter, special report, video training series, audio recording or other compelling free information should be offered here that is designed to solve the frustration your ad agitated. This is key to building a responsive list.

5. Follow up with a systemized email autoresponder: A series of email follow up letters should be linked to your capture page so that you can follow up with your new leads using automation. This is where the majority of your sales will be made. Constant follow up is crucial in building trust, credibility and rapport with your list. By offering valuable content and teaching them exactly what your lead capture page and your initial ad offered to teach, you will warm up your list and prepare them to buy or join you in business.

6. Close Sales A tremendously weak part of the average marketer’s system. Most automated online sales systems are great at opening up the sales process and attracting leads in. At that point most rely on the marketer to actually follow up and close sales. This is where most home business systems fall woefully short and cause the high failure rate in the industry. Depending on the process your system uses, you should be able to close on 1-2 sales for every 100 -150 opt ins in most online based home businesses programs that are considered “top tier” ($1,000+ start up pricepoint). If your system is not getting this closing rate then you should carefully analyze the entire system and determine which part in the sales process is weak. Many programs use leverage, technology and systems effectively to open and attract people into the sales process, only to leave the critical part of closing sales to the weakest part of the system – the inexperienced marketer. Fortunately in recent months there have been a few automated Attraction Marketing Systems that have hit the market that allow the online marketer to focus on the “front end”, which is advertising and driving traffic to their system. The system leverages professional call centers or specialized copywriting, audios and videos on the sales presentation site that actually closes sales without ‘you’ the Marketer or Independent Business Owner, (IBO) to get involved. For more information on how to leverage the internet and automated Attraction Marketing Systems to generate significant cash flow online people can perform Google searches on “Attraction List Building” or “Attraction Marketing” and also search for the same keywords and further their understanding of what is available in the marketplace.
