This is the #1 thing that is asked by network marketers all the time, how do I find more customers???  We all want to grow our businesses outside of our family and friends but we have to be really careful that we don’t spam everyone and push them away.

Network Marketing can be tough and when you aren’t getting orders it’s discouraging.  You do a lot of work creating posts and making them perfect and then….crickets.

Be a solution, not a salesman.

The most effective way to get more network marketing customers – Who are we selling to?

Before we get into this let’s talk about who we are giving our solution or sales to……  In order to sell to someone, we have to know who we are selling to.  If you have been around for a while you will hear this as your ideal customer, or your avatar.  When you create your content you want to be thinking of this person like you are talking right to them.  What do they need help with, what issues do they have, what do they struggle with.

On the other hand, you can say what do they like, what do they enjoy doing.  What makes them happy. THEN you create your content bringing them a detailed solution catered directly to them.  

Remember we want our audience to say “ wow how did she know that I do that, or need that?”  right?!

The most effective way to get more network marketing customers. – Solve problems, create solutions.

Ok, so once you know WHO you are talking to, whatever kind of content you are Putting out.. A live video blog post or a regular post on facebook……does it solve that person’s problem??…. or is it just trying to get a sale? Is it about the customer….. or is it about you and what you have to sell them?

So…. you want to be talking about an issue that your ideal customer has and giving them away to fix it…..

not just telling your customers about a bundle pack and what’s inside of it or what it includes? And see what a difference it makes.   

When your content is a solution, the content that you put out helps your customer …..giving your customer value…. or solving their problems.

Alright so let me give you an example to help paint the picture:

Let’s just take Facebook posting for instance…. (you can do this in all your other content ways whether it’s a blog post or a live video)

If you’re posting a solution post, you’re going to figure out who we are talking to and what issue they may have.

The most effective way to get more network marketing customers. – Stop the scroller!

So let’s say your ideal client that is a woman that lives in the Northeast and gets really cold Winters…. maybe she gets really dry skin in the winter time that is painful for her.

So for her, you would want to make your content around “the different ways to help dry skin in the winter”.

You want to start with a catchy title that says just that.  “Do you suffer from dry cracked skin in the winter?”

Because that is going to stop the scroll for whoever has that problem right?  IF that was you would you stop and read or watch that video? I would!!! I would be taking notes!  

The most effective way to get more network marketing customers. – Give them the solution for FREE!

Ok, then you want to provide you tips, so one way could be drinking more water,   2 would be protecting your skin in the cold when you go outside, and then 3 (or your last tip)  is when you tie in your product type …. so you’d say “using a really good moisturizer” NOT your moisturizer just A moisturizer.

So you are giving them the 3 tips.  But not mentioning your product yet.  That alone is serving them, helping them without any type of reward to you. Right?you’re teaching them something….. AND you’re giving them ways that they can fix their problem without buying your product.

Now after the last tip you can then say If you are interested, or if you need a cream I have this hand cream available.  That is when you Give your social proof and how it helped others, and all the quick selling points.

That way if they want that extra help they know exactly where to get the best product for dry skin.


Do  see how that kind of post is a lot different then posting “if you have dry skin in the winter you need to buy this lotion from me it’s only 29 99 and it’s the best ask my friends”

RIGHT?    that kind of post is just a sales post that’s just all about you and money but the other kind of post or content is about the customer and how they can help themselves annnnd you also have a tool to offer them if they want.

THen one more  thing you always want to do at the end of  any of your content is to leave a call to action so at the end when you’re telling them about your lotion that you have you can tell them if they are interested to shoot you a dm,

OR better yet to make it even easier for them, you can say comment below if you have any questions or are interested in more info.  That opens up a channel for you to personally talk to them.

With everyone’s highlight reel running on social media these days, everyone seems to be competing for attention and it can be really hard to stand out!   So if we are trying to grow our business, how do we grab the attention of our ideal customers and really stand out especially in a saturated market? How do you sell something when everyone seems to be selling something online these days? Today, I am going to share my top tips for how to stand out on social media and sell in a saturated market!


Not enough time to read?  Head to the podcast and listen there!

How to stand out on social media tip #1:

Know who your ideal client is! – This is going to be huge.  You have to know exactly who you are talking to and who you are trying to attract so that you can post content about what they want or need to hear.  So make sure you know who they are, what they like, what they don’t like, and what they struggle with and then those are the things that you want to talk about. 

It’s a really good thing if you can get your reader to say “yes me too” and “Wow! How did she know I feel like that?”  Because once they say those two things they are going to tune in every time you have something to say!

How to stand out on social media tip #2:

Network marketing, social selling, how to find more customers, how to grow your online business, how to recruit and grow your direct sales business or team

Be authentic – We have been hearing this a lot in the online space, “Be authentic”.  It’s really because, when you are authentic to your audience, you show your audience that you are a real person.   Don’t be afraid to share who you are, or a little bit about your life.  This does NOT mean to give away all of your marriage secrets hahaha. 

However, you should tell your story if it will help people. Most likely your ideal client is the same person as you just a few steps behind you.  So if you had an amazing weight loss or life change from eating clean… start talking about your journey. Your feelings and situations that your unhealthy life caused.  

Do more than just sell, offer value or service. Genuinely find something that you can do with your business that gives people value and that you like doing or are passionate about.  

Don’t just do something because you think people will eventually buy from you, don’t be fake.  People can smell fakeness a mile away especially from network marketers they and are just waiting for it.  So if you don’t totally love what you are doing or selling, you need to make an adjustment to something you love.  

How to stand out on social media tip #3:

Be original – this is HUGE!  First of all… every one is an original.  You are different than the next person in your MLM selling the same thing, and your audience is different as well.  The people that follow me are different than the people that follow Suzie… they follow me for different reasons. So Be original, people are going to buy from you because they like YOU…. And They trust you.  

Network marketing tips, how to grow your direct sales business, social selling, influencer marketing, mlm, women in business, online business, assistant services, how to build your email list

People are going to be drawn to you because they like the way you do things, the way you talk, your personality.  On the other side, people won’t buy from you for the same reasons, BUT that is what you want… you want the people that do like you, to become super fans because then they will refer you to others and referrals are GOLD, so you really need to be yourself!  

Think of your own ideas,  don’t do motivation Monday posts or live videos just because Sally is doing it, and it works for her… find the things that work well for you and your audience.  This is where trial and error and creativeness comes in. Think of your own stuff!!

Network marketing, social selling, how to find more customers, how to grow your online business, how to recruit and grow your direct sales business or team
How to stand out on social media tip #4:

Be professional – this is going to really be huge I say this a lot I know.  Because let’s be honest, listen to these two shopping experiences and think of the person you would buy from. 

If you were walking into a store to buy a dress (lets say its an important event that you need a dress for) and as soon as you walked in you were greeted, they offered to help you they gave you a coupon and took your email address they offered you a drink and all the things, then you go to the store next door and they have like 2 people working there, they are sitting behind the counter, don’t say hello, gossiping about their friends eating… I don’t know.  Just barely worrying about you… or helping you. Who are you going to buy from?

Your online business is NO different! Offer value like opt-ins, free guides, or tutorials, thank people for buying from you, have an email sequence go out after they buy a certain product that walks them through using it and offers help after the sale.

Before the sale, have a good website that is easy to navigate, it shows your brand and has tons of things for your customer to make their lives better in some way.  Use email marketing, do live videos, whatever it is that works well for your business do that… and that leads me to the next and last one….

How to stand out on social media tip #5:

Be consistent!!   All of this won’t mean anything if you aren’t consistent!  I am really struggling with this right now because I have so many changes going on, and that is when you need to ask for help!  Consistently show up as yourself authentically, consistently send those thank you emails or offer to opt-ins. Consistently go live or tell your story.  This is going to CONSISTENTLY bring you, new customers, I promise!

The top reason why you do not want to sell to everybody, that some may not know!

When we start our network marketing business and we join our company, we are SOO excited!  We are pumped up! and we want to grow our business and our team really big and really fast!   

We love our products and we want everybody else to love our products! And we want everybody to have our products and join our team ,,,,, but sister, I am here to tell you that you do NOT want to sell to everybody!

 

Your listening to the Mama Means Business Podcast and this is Episode 4

 

Hello hello!  

 

I am just diving straight  in today… you can be the juiciest peach in the tree and there is always going to  be someone that doesn’t like peaches, so…. Lets be honest, we want everyone to buy our products, we want a million followers, we want fans.

I am here to bust your bubble sister…. it’s just not going to happen.  

 

not everybody is going to like our products or our business,

not everybody is going to want to buy our products or join our team.

not everybody is going to like us or what we have to say

 

Maybe they love the products, but  they’re not going to want to sell the product…

And I am here to tell you that is all okay!!

 

think about what the differences in these two statements:

“ this is the best energy drink it helps everybody get energy, everybody needs it, get it now while it’s on sale”

 

or rr

 

this energy drink is perfect for moms who have Toddlers and don’t want to drink coffee all day long.  it will keep you going so that you can get all of your jobs done and still have the energy to play with your kids.  You may even prepare a hot meal for your husband to eat when he gets home from work and do it all without falling asleep at 7.

 

With those two statements, when you’re talking to a bunch of people and you’re very broad with your going to go over everybody’s head, nobody is going to tune in. becuase everybody sells an energy drink we can walk down the street to the gas station and buy an energy drink we can probably even buy it cheaper than that, why sould we get one from you?.

 

However if I’m a mom that is tired everyday and I’m lucky if I get a hot meal on the table because I just want to nap in the afternoon instead of Cook I am ALL EARS….. you have my attention  as soon as you start talking about me, and if you can solve my problem…. I’m going to pay whatever it cost to solve that problem, and I’m going to buy your energy drink

 

Now  again these are very Broad examples but you can see that when you start talking to a specific person about a specific situation you’re going to get their attention and when you can solve somebody’s problem and make somebody happy or change their life in some way ….. They are going to be a raving fan!

 

Let’s talk about the opportunity For a minute …………when you’re talking about your business opportunity do you just want to say my team is crushing it we’re best friends this is an awesome business I love working for my phone you got to join my team we are awesome!

 

or do you want to speak to that mom who has postpartum depression and is cooped up in her house with a newborn in two toddlers……. And talk about how this business has helped you bounce back from postpartum depression by  giving you a purpose and Friends and even an income to be able to go do fun things like take your mom out for lunch guess what when you say the second thing that Mom that is feeling cooped up in her house that would love to be able to take her mom out to lunch… and she’s going to start listening to you   she might not join your team today but she’s going to start listening to everything you have to say about it and if your marketing well and you keep on This role she’s going to join your team eventually

 

So if you’ve been around in the business world for online marketing you know a little world word called neeche Anish is a particular group of people this can also be called your ideal customer your avatar or your perfect person.

and this is the one person if you could create someone this is who it would be…. the person that

loves your product

that joins on the first day of hearing about it

that comments on everything you have to say

buys every new product that comes out tells all their friends about you

 

that is your ideal customer but more than that…… we have to know all about that actual person we want to know what they like what they don’t like….. what they struggle with…… where they hang out….. What type of content do they prefer ……..do they listen to podcast do they watch YouTube ………..do they like reading maybe they like blogs or emails more than watching videos

 

maybe they don’t have time to sit down and they prefer podcast …..when you know these things you can speak directly to her

 

When you find your Niche and you know where they Hangout you can start talking to them directly on their platform every day the next thing you know you have an audience.   Typically your niche is going to be you a few steps back.

 

so to help you a little bit I’ll tell you who my ideal client is my ideal clients name is Susie and Susie sells products for three different MLM companies……..

she is a stay-at-home mom of three…….. she loves entrepreneurship

and does all of these businesses becuase she desperately wants and enjoys having her own money and being able to help her husband financially provide for her kids to be able to do extra things she likes to go shopping with her mom on the weekends and she likes to hang out with her friends and go to the zoo or the museum with her kids and

 

she does all of these businesses so that she can afford to do that

she also likes having something for herself…. when she is serving her kids all day and taking care of everybody else she likes to be able to sit down and have her own business And her own friends in her own customers she likes to be able to make a difference in people’s lives she likes to make people feel better and feel better about themselves

 

however she doesn’t have a lot of time to research how to grow her business

 

she doesn’t know how to use Instagram and nobody has ever taught her that she can use email and Pinterest for her business

 

So now based off all of those things that I just said about my ideal customer do you see all the different things that I can talk about to gain her interest to get her to start following me all the things in the problems that I can solve for her with my products or my  business

 

oh she likes to go shopping with her mom but can’t  afford to do that….. I can help her be super successful

 

oh she doesn’t even know that she can use Pinterest for her business…perfect I have a course that teaches exactly How to use Pinterest for your business so  then I can tell her all the benefits of using Pinterest …and how customers will find her because they’re searching for her there

 

I’m going to talk about ways that she can stop spamming her network by using email for her business and how she can be seen by all of her customers instead of dealing with algorithms

 

She is super busy so i am goign to talk about automating different parts of her business to create more time in her schedule.

 

so you see everything I listed about my customer I can talk directly to those issues whether they’re good or bad and basically have her thinking ……I have everything solved for her .right?

 

I can create products that she needs!   She might not even know that she needs the courses until I tell her….. and that’s the same with your products……. some people don’t even know that they have an issue until you shed light on it.. or you tell them they have an issue

some people don’t even know your products exist until you tell them …and some people might think that there is no cure for their issue or there problems        until you start talking about that problem and telling them how you’re going to fix it

 

So when you know who your customer is and you know everything about them you can speak directly to them       instead of speaking very broad to everybody.

 

I would rather have 100 followers on Instagram that need and want my service then 100,000 followers they could care less about what I sell or what I do you want customers that are going to be raving fans so that they tell people about you and your products and ultimately they keep coming back or they join your team and they start selling the products themselves and this is how you find those people

 

I hope that some of this helped you or you scored a little nugget in there that you didnt think of before,  and I would love for you to join our Mama Means Business Academy Famliy! We do a whole module on this and I am there to help you every step of the way.

 

So definitely check that out along with the resources linked in the show notes,           and i will see you next time!

We are talking about why network marketers want to brand themselves and not their network marketing company!   Ok, I know you are thinking… whaaa?  My MLM has a brand, I just use their branding that’s easy.   

Annnnd Yes, you can do that, but you may want to think twice.

You are SO much more than a network marketer, and you have so much more to give than the products that you sell for your MLM company.  I want you to be able to Create a business that is unique to you and use your MLM products as a tool to help your customers.

Today I am not only talking about what branding is and why it’s SO very important for network marketers…. But we are going to list ways that you can actually start branding your business today.

Why network marketers want to brand themselves – Why is a personal brand important?

Network marketing tips, how to grow your network marketing business, how to get more sales, direct sales tips, mlm tips, how to grow your mlm business, how to get more mlm customers, how to recruit more team members in direct sales. grow your MLM business, grow your netowrk marketing business, grow your direct sales business, get more customers, get more orders, be seen on social media, how to get your MLM business seen, how to get your network marketing business seen.I think when we become our own business, from the outside where your network is looking in on your business, We become a real business.

We become more professional, and more of an expert at what we are doing.  It’s doesn’t mean we aren’t MLMs it just means we are more than that, and by the way, we actually have awesome products that you can purchase to help you get whatever it is you need.  

I talked before about finding solutions for your network…. You do that, and use your products as tools. But ultimately you are your own business. And you can portray that really well with good branding.

This is the opposite of what everyone has been doing in the past but I am seeing more and more people starting to do this and have a lot of success!  

It’s not enough anymore to just sell popular products. For instance, a lot people are not going to just buy from you because you sell shampoo or makeup.  They can get that anywhere… You have to be able to connect with people on a more emotional level.

 

Alright before we get too deep into this, Let’s first talk about what a brand is.

Why network marketers want to brand themselves – What is a brand?

Typically when you think of branding you think of color, logo, songs.  Right? And It is those…. But it’s also so much more!  

Your brand is you!  It’s your style and colors of the clothes you wear, your personality, and your tone of voice.  Are you upbeat and silly?? Or reserved and quiet??   Are you fun, classy, energetic, feminine?

It’s how you make people feel when they see you or talk to you?  And it’s not just on social media or pictures, it can be in your packaging, your samples, or thank you cards, business cards.  

Like I said, people don’t usually buy things anymore because they need them… There are way too many options out there.  They buy things from people that they like, know, and trust, but more importantly, the person that they can relate to.  

 

Think about some of these things and try to stick to that every time you put out your content or create something.  They are important because when you build a brand and you are consistent… It helps to connect you to your target market.  It helps your customer to recognize you and they will also remember you more easily!

Grab this download ASAP it’s going to help you figure out your own visual brand!  It’s a branding template that you can use to keep track of your brand, It’s my personal one but you just fill it in with your own info.  I refer to mine ALL the time when I am making images for Pinterest or social media.  It’s really helpful especially when you are trying to remember those darn color numbers!

Think about what you want to be known for!

So, I know you are probably STILL thinking, I am in network marketing why does this matter? We already have colors images and logo…  But, I want you to think about what you want to be most known for?  

  • Do you want to be the health and wellness coach, that helps moms lose baby weight through a special diet?  Or are you going to be that healthy MLM company’s distributor?
  • Or how about a hair care specialist who helps women restore their hair after postnatal hair loss ( I don’t know if that’s really a thing that is just what came out haha) or are you your MLM distributor?
  • Do you want to be known as the mom that helps other moms get control of their skin and look younger by using better makeup and teaching how to use it correctly?   Or do you just sell MLM make up and announce sales?

Do you see where this is going?

This ties in a little bit with your message what is your message??   What are you going to tell people that you do??  You don’t want to just be a Network marketer that sells makeup… or a Network marketer that sells oils.

You want to be “Becky the natural living oil queen” be the expert that women come to when they want to start living more natural lives by avoiding harmful chemicals and using essential oils.  

Get specific with your message and repeat yourself all the time.

 

(It obviously doesn’t have to be that extreme I’m just making it extremely obvious to understand)

Example:

Network marketing tips, how to grow your network marketing business, how to get more sales, direct sales tips, mlm tips, how to grow your mlm business, how to get more mlm customers, how to recruit more team members in direct sales. grow your MLM business, grow your netowrk marketing business, grow your direct sales business, get more customers, get more orders, be seen on social media, how to get your MLM business seen, how to get your network marketing business seen.So let’s say it’s the new year and you’re pumped to start this new lifestyle, this new diet and you’re going to lose weight you’re going to get healthier!   You’re also a mom of four kids and you work full time…. and you have 2 friends…… Susie and a friend Sally that you have been following because they always have great info about losing weight as a working mom.

So you decide you are going to have one of them help you with the start to your new year and the start to your new healthy Journey.  You go to each website…

  1. Susie’s first: you click on her link and it takes you straight to her MLM company’s website but it just information about the products and buying products maybe even some fun facts to help you lose weight but nothing really catered to you….. it’s basically everything you need to know about buying products.
  2. Then you go to Sally:   you click on the website and it takes you to this beautiful clean web page called “Sally’s Sweet Life” she has this awesome logo with all her contact info.  There is a blog with information about living healthy as a working mom. There are tips to keep you healthy during the busy day, and a whole section of recipes that are easy to make after work, there’s even a free download for a free 7-Day workout plan that you can do from home in 10 minutes!!!  Then over to the left, she also has a shop tab where you can find different products that you can purchase to help you live a healthier lifestyle.   As well as links embedded in each blog post so that when you are reading you can find the exact product that she is talking about like this.

 

I don’t know about you…. but I’m probably going to ask Sally to help me get started!  And when Sally offers products for me to purchase, I’m probably going to buy them because I’m pretty confident that she knows exactly what she’s talking about!  She seems more professional to me, she is more helpful and reliable.  She is SO much more than a network marketer.

(which right now is typically the goal because people are so afraid of network marketers)   

 

Why network marketers want to brand themselves – Here are some things that you can do today, to start branding yourself.

  1. Start simply with a logo…….. you can do this for free!  If you go to Canva, they have a whole bunch of templates for logos.  You can create your own or you can just choose one of theirs and plug in your colors and your information.

 

If you are saying right now “girl, I don’t have time for that or it sounds too difficult”  then have someone make one for you!!! Etsy or Creative market are great places to start! They even have branding packages where they give you colors logos fonts the whole deal.

Now once you have that make sure you use it!  Remember to be consistent.

  • Start by just putting that logo on everything you do, like your email header, or any image you post on social media.  You want people to start to recognize your logo as your brand.  
  • If you do live video you can use a product like ecam or obs (obs is free i believe) every time you go live you can have your logo in the top corner,  

 

2. Choose Your brand colors and fonts.  When you use Canva to create your images for social media or your website …….you can actually save your font and your brand colors there so you can easily keep all of your images on brand.

  • You also want to wear your brand colors when you take pictures or go LIVE.
  • Use those colors in all of your marketing (business cards, site colors, ect.)
  • Whatever your style or colors are, have your background match that.  It can be as simple as standing in front of a wall with your colors or having a backdrop that shows your brand style.

 

There was a girl that I followed, she was so happy and spunky!  She loved all things glitter so she had a background for her LIVE videos that was just a sequin piece of fabric and it was perfect for her brand!  There’s another woman I know that lives on a farm, so her brand is rustic farmhouse living.

Be consistent with it ….and just stick to it.  It’s definitely a process.  I am still slowly starting to get more pictures that are on brand for me for my website.   So please know it’s not going to be perfect right away, but stick to it and have fun!  

3. Now, if you’re like, “ok I got that, give me more… “and you want to take it one step further….. you can (and eventually should in my opinion), create your own website!

These days its really not that hard, inside of The Mama Means Business Academy I walk you through exactly how to do this but there are a lot of videos and tutorials out there that will help you.

There are also some really cheap websites that you can use to build your website on, however…  Definitely, do some research before you choose to see which one has the features that work best for you and your business.

 

  • Once you have a website, you can add different pages on your site. you can have a blog…. ( I think of a blog as just one place where all your social media posts are) and then you can have a shop page with your products.   
  • You can customize your site and really make it your own according to your brand.  Some fun ideas are to do a featured item each month, add in some awesome opt-ins for your customers to download or special resources, have a recipe page or a tutorial page.
  • NOW you can pin all of that content to Pinterest and that drives traffic to your website!!

But Pinterest… that is a whoooole topic for another day.

Why network marketers want to brand themselves – the advantages!

There are some advantages of having your own website and branding yourself, as your own business…. If you ever want to pivot in your business… maybe you want to start selling something else, or maybe your MLM company goes out of business.  Then you’re no longer the Young Living distributor or the Monat market partner and you don’t have a business.    

BUT, if you have branded yourself, you can do anything that you’re passionate about!

Network marketing tips, how to grow your network marketing business, how to get more sales, direct sales tips, mlm tips, how to grow your mlm business, how to get more mlm customers, how to recruit more team members in direct sales. grow your MLM business, grow your netowrk marketing business, grow your direct sales business, get more customers, get more orders, be seen on social media, how to get your MLM business seen, how to get your network marketing business seen.You can still sell shampoo but then you can also teach women different ways to style their hair by having a whole page of tutorials…. you can have a Blog on there encouraging moms and do tutorials on easy mom hairstyles or little girl hairstyles.

Take my business for example:

For me, for instance, once I started branding myself I wasn’t just a Beauty Guide anymore with my MLM.  I was Jennie Hoover and my business is Mama Means Business.  I am still a beauty guide with my MLM, but I also help other women with their own MLMs.  With a podcast and a membership site.  My courses, and a blog all under the Mama Means Business Brand.  My brand is evolving as I evolve!  And you WILL evolve too!

 

So it doesn’t matter what you evolve to you’re always going to be yourself so start your business as yourself not your network marketing company!


 

Your brand all around…. is the way you make people feel, the way people think of you, the way you help people, your brand is you!  And when you are you, you’re going to attract people that need someone just like you and THAT is the sweet spot!

 

Alright girlfriend, try some of those things and let me know how it goes!!!…email me or DM me on Instagram!   

I would love if you Join us in the Mama Means Business Academy so we can dive deeper into this and put this stuff to work!…. I hope to see you there!

Ok, I know this may not be a lot of sales, but friend let me tell you…  It took me 5 minutes to sell this much!  FIVE MINUTES!  I am going to share with you exactly how I did it and how you can too!  Today I am laying it all out for you, we are talking about how I sold $582 in my MLM in just 2 days, without Facebook!

I hate it.  I am not going to lie to you, I HATED going LIVE with no makeup on and showing people how I used my makeup.  I hated making people feel like if they jumped on my LIVE video or they commented on a post that I was going to stalk them.

I always felt like people were waiting for me to try to sell them something or ask them to join my team.  I didn’t like filling my personal Facebook Page with MLM ads (I didn’t really do that much anyway).

I know that your upline is telling you these things and I want you to know NO YOU DON’T HAVE TO!  If you do not like doing something to sell your products… DONT DO IT!  There are other ways, and just because LIVE video makeup tutorials worked for some, doesn’t mean it will for you!  And that’s ok!

I knew there was a better way, to sell, a better way to grow and a better way to communicate.  I was seeing million dollar leaders in other companies making so much money but not really posting about products!

So I started to lean into what other people were doing, in other industries.  Business coaches, health and wellness coaches, people selling their books, businesses selling products.  They were ALL building email lists and communicating with email!  DUH!

  • It positions you as more of a professional
  • It makes you an expert in your industry
  • It makes you stand out compared to all the other network marketers
  • It saves so much time!
  • Communicate directly without worrying about the algorithm
  • You own those email addresses if anything happens to social media you still have contacts.
  • You actually have only the people who want to hear from you, because they signed up to!
  • SO MUCH MORE… KEEP READING!

 

How I used Email Marketing to grow my Direct Sales Business.

So, I searched, I learned, I stayed up way too late, and I figured it all out!  I learned what to do, and what not to do.  I learned the system in and out and what platforms were best.  (I am still learning new ways to use email in my marketing)

I set up my email account, and I just went for it!  I posted on social media to get people to join my list in different ways like a newsletter, or samples.  I used different opt-ins like video tutorials ect.

It worked!  I grew my email list FAST!  Lots of warm leads!  I was able to follow up with current customers so much easier all at the same time with one click!  I could serve my network so much better!

How email marketing made my MLM so much easier!

Well for starters:

  • I could communicate directly to my leads and customers.  No algorithm and no worrying about time and day.  Everything I wanted to say was going STRAIGHT to my client.
  • I could follow up with my current customers, or potential recruits without putting them on the spot with a call or message.  By adding a SHOP BUTTON or JOIN HERE in my email.
  • I could let everyone know at once about new sales, products or events that I had in just 5 mins.
  • People WANTED to hear what I had to say because they asked me to email them!
  • It saved me so much time!  I didn’t have to worry about going LIVE, what I was going to say, how I looked or what was going on in my house that day. (I still went LIVE but only when I wanted to it wasn’t needed.  When I did, I marketed and pushed people to join my email or sign up for something to get their email address)
  • My readers looked forward to the monthly newsletter to see what was going on that month, what sales or incentives we had.
  • I was able to send VALUABLE content to my subscribers like, tutorials, videos, checklists, books, (whatever you can think of depending on your business or products)!

In this specific incident, I sent my monthly newsletter.  In that newsletter, I had a product of the month.  I talked all about it, its benefits, how to use it, what the deals were and what I loved about it.

I had a section for women that were current customers reminding them to place their refill orders if they were running low on product.

I listed our new products that launched the month before and the new ones coming out.

I have a template that I use each month for this newsletter and I just update the info that needs to be changed.  This template is a BONUS in the Email Marketing for the Network Marketer course where I walk you through exactly how to do this yourself.

All of that because of my template took about 5-10 minutes.  That’s it.  I was busy that week and when I went to log into my back office for my MLM business, I was so stoked to see all the sale I received, with only 10 minutes of work!

 

When you send emails, you do not have to worry about the algorithm, or spending so much time preparing and going LIVE.  

 

Last thoughts

You can do this too!  If you are a network marketer and you want to work SMARTER and NOT HARDER, you NEED to add email marketing to your business.  It only takes a couple hours, maybe less, to set up and you are ready to get people on your list.

It took me a LONG time to do it on my own, finding all the resources, course and youtube videos.  I don’t want that for you so I created a quick and easy Email Marketing Course just for you, so you can be up and running today!

Think of all the ways that you can get NEW customers and serve your current customers!  Think of how much more your videos or posts will be seen and the benefits of sending emails directing people to view those videos!

It’s so exciting and you can do this too!  Now that you know how I sold $582 in my MLM in just 2 days, without Facebook you CAN DO IT TOO!  I hope that you join me in this course and in the email marketing GAME!  It’s so fun you will love it I promise!

Depending on your network marketing business or products November and Dec can be your best months in sales. Holiday, end of the year, but it also means that New Years is right around the corner!  I want to share how to prepare your MLM business for the new year!

It’s December right now …..we are in full blown network marketing chaos.   Everyone is selling something… everyone has a sale and everyone’s product is the best gift, right? I want to talk about a couple things today but,    First….. let’s talk about some ways you can get on that train….without being spammy.

Because You definitely want to be talking to your network about the sales that you offer…. But always remember to do it in a non-salesy way.  

How to offer your direct sales holiday specials without spamming your network!

You can offer holiday sales and specials for your business by:

  1. creating your own graphics
  2. send emails
  3. going live… you want to be talking about the benefits of each product….. and the benefits of the benefits.  (If you haven’t heard this before, let me explain. Every product has a benefit for using it, but what is the benefit of that to your customer? That is what you want to sell.  You aren’t just selling a nutrition drink because its on sale, you are selling an easy meal for moms on the go… then the benefit of that is they are actually on time because they didn’t have to cook their breakfast. Ok? Now you can take that and apply to your products whatever benefits they have.
  4. Next is gift cards, I did this last year and it worked really well. Offer Gift cards!  IF you have gift cards from your company use those!  If not and your company allows… make them!  This will help you get sales early in the month of January when people are cashing them in!   They also will tend to spend more than the gift card if they are like me. You can even make them look nice in a gift bag if you have extra or get some at the dollar store.  Those are perfect for wives, teachers, neighbors friends. Use the gift card idea and make it easy for your customer!

How to use the New Year to grow your network marketing business!

The new year brings two things… resolutions and debt.  And most likely Both of those can be solved by joining network marketing!

Last year the average American had $1000 in debt going into the new year from Christmas  (market watch.com)

People are looking to change their lives and start new things.. and People are also looking to pay off Christmas debt!  So you have to make sure that you show your network that has been following you that your business is so much more than sales.  

Make sure to show the change it has made in you as a person and the people you work with.  Show how it has helped you pay for Christmas if it has..

Be on top of your game!  You want to be warming your network up to be open to hearing about the opportunity in January when they are ready to start something new for themselves.

Post regularly, batch if you have to.  Remember to sit down and write out all of your posts and emails when you have time to concentrate on them.  That way your brain is in the zone and you are your most creative.

Be more!  You can’t just throw a post on social media and hope someone buys, you have to be more, you have to try, you have to offer solutions and help people!
