We have a tendency to think that our goal in our business is to sign up, convince, or convert everyone we know and talk to into our business or products.
That is dangerous thinking, honestly and will set you up for quitting.
Here is the reality:
Our goal is to meet people; share what we do, make an offer,
An offer is NOT always buying or trying your product or the business. It could be referrals; support in general.
Sharing what we do means sorting. Not everyone will be right. Could you sell a side of beef to a vegetarian? Not likely.
Would you spend time trying? Not likely.
It is the same in your business.
Sort, don’t sell. Sorting starts with knowing who your ideal client is; what their pain point is; and the solution you provide.
Get very clear on these things. Write them down. Memorize them and...
Has this ever happened to you? You stare at your screen and keyboard for an hour, spinning your wheels, trying to figure out what to write on your social media.
You keep hearing - add value…. what the heck is value, anyway?
You think, write, edit, delete, and repeat the process.
You know it’s gotta be done, writing content for social media. but what? What that doesn’t just fill dead space and get nothing back
It seems so overwhelming and time consuming.
Content calendars; prompts - none of that is working and it looks like everyone else’s stuff.
Boring and generic.
Copy and pasting from other company leaders feels awkward, because it doesn’t sound like you, and you feel like a fake.
Writing good content is about selling you…your story…and your value. Not your products or...
Which would you prefer to have in your business, or rather which one sounds more fun…like something you would commit to and stick to:
Hustle and Hard work, or Ease,,,,flow….effortless and elegant.
Hustle and hard work are typically how we feel when we are doing something out of synch with our natural rhythm.
Easily, elegantly, and effortlessly, in the flow of life and calm sounds a lot better.
And, as someone who has worked my business from both angles, I can tell you that the latter is much more fun, lucrative and enticing to others.
Hustle and hard work lead to burn out.
Network Marketing is a volunteer business, and no one wants to volunteer for hard.
When you don’t wake up each day with a clear, understandable plan of what you need to do to move your business forward, that leaves most with...
How do I find people for my Network Marketing business? How do I share what I am doing in a way that feels authentic and not "salesy?"
These are two questions I had myself; and now have answered for decades!
My short answer - you don't find them; you let them find YOU.
And, here is how!
In 1999, after attending an internet seminar, I saw some genuine potential in using online methods as a tool to "reverse roles" and allow those people who were interested in a home business to find me, and let me know they wanted to know more.
So, I decided to give this “Internet thingie” a go, and build a web presence, and ultimately a business online.
Lots of people lined up to tell me I was crazy; I wouldn’t be successful; it couldn’t be done. I calmly put my blinders and ear muffs on and got busy proving them wrong.
Here’s what my clients tell me, and I get it. Almost on the daily, they stare at their screen, spinning their wheels trying to figure out what to share on social media to create SOMETHING - a like, a comment, some interest, a Direct Message, maybe, and wow, a sale or signup would be nice.
Right? Is this you?
You ponder, write, edit, delete, and repeat.
And nothing ever gets out there. Or, at least not consistently and not content that pulls people to you.
And, you HATE how overwhelming and time consuming it is for you.
You’ve purchased content calendars to give you prompts, and you start, then stop because it's starting to feel so…forced, so generic, so stale, even.
You’ve probably even fallen into the trap of copying someone else’s content, maybe your upline or someone in your company, because it worked for them; it inspired you,...
Social media isn’t selling. It requires you to be SOCIAL.
Posting with the “Spray and Pray” process does NOT work.
Do you know the best way to get others interested in you? Be interested in them. TRULY engaged and interested.
Are you liking, and more importantly commenting in an engaging way, and having real conversations with people you enjoy talking to; and who might be a perfect fit for you.
Be real, be you, and don’t be graspy and loaded with an agenda in your conversations.
Just connect and get to know people.
Pick 10 people a day to engage with. Track it.
Be consistent. They will begin to see your posts.
This is how the algorithm works. Engage with them first. Get on their radar as well as Instagram or Facebook.
Try it for a month and let me know how it goes....
I hear you, you are ready to kick 2020 to the curb and have so much more in 2021?
So, let’s do it.
1st, Create a crystal clear vision for your business and the lifestyle you want to create through your business. The why is the most important part of the whole equation. It doesn’t matter what type of entrepreneur you study - real estate, internet marketer, network marketer, inventor, author/speaker - and so on - the key elements to success are the same. Your back ground and your past history and experiences also have NOTHING to do with your ability to have success, so get over it. If you are allowing these things to interfere, you are doing this by CHOICE and not by chance. Most of the time, it’s a crutch we hold onto for some reason.
2nd, know your plan - I mean it this time. Write out your daily marketing plan and do it. Take steps daily, and invest in your education, refuse...
My greatest reward from my network marketing business is the ability I had (and still have) to be there for and with my children. Even though they are both grown and gone and my son is a father himself, I never lose sight of the pure joy that brought to me, and the peaceful world it gave them to grow up in.
Just a few weeks back, I was able to move a few things in my schedule and meet my daughter in New York City for 5 days, staying in a penthouse apartment 35 floors up, overlooking the Hudson, with the Statue of Liberty beckoning to me every morning and every night, right out the window.
My business didn’t stop. It didn’t need to. I have set things up so that I have a truly laptop life and business,
Corporate America could never offer me that.
In my opinion, there is no better time or option right now than network marketing. In my opinion, and...
Do you know how to effectively introduce yourself in a way that creates instant impact, curiosity and interest?
Far too many network marketers like to use their company name as a way of explaining what they do. I hear this a lot:
I do Arbonne. I’m with Herbalife. I am Team Beach Body.
Do you fall into this trap?
First, no one cares about your company or product names. In most cases, these names mean nothing to them. And, you miss a chance to make a connection when you fail to introduce yourself and what you do effectively.
There is one thing that is always on your prospect’s mind, even subconsciously and they is - WHAT’s in it for me.
What do you do, and how would it benefit me?
You’re likely having that thought too, when you meet people.
Right now, with everything going on, people are scrolling social media. They are...
Other People’s Opinions are one of the most common things that hold us back. Keep us stuck. Keep us making up stories about other people.
We have deep fears about what others think and say about us. And, why is this? Do they pay our bills? Feed us? Care for our children? Are they really spending as much time thinking about us as we like to think that they are?
Do you spend much time thinking about and judging what others are doing?
Why? Or why not?
We spend a heck of a lot of time “thinking” that other people are thinking things about us. Most of the time, we “think” that their thoughts about us are negative.
Here’s a little secret - other people aren’t thinking about you as much as you think they are. People don’t spend that much time thinking outside of themselves and their own situation. Do you?
And even if...
