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!
Why I didn’t want to sell network marketing products using 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!
The benefits of email marketing in direct sales.
There are so many
- 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)!
So, how did I sell close to $600 in just 2 days?
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.
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!
