If you have no idea how to recruit new prospects into your network marketing business; or if you’ve already recruited some prospects to your network marketing business, but you’ve been doing *the most* online and it’s taking sooo much of your time that you’re thinking there must be a better way than what you are doing now; then this blog post is for you.
If you’ve been wondering how to properly market your MLM business so that you can sell more products; this blog post is also for you.
Network marketing has been changing a lot over the last few years. There are now more network marketing companies than ever before.
Which means that there has never been fiercer competition among network marketing salespeople than there is now.
And every single one of them is on social media trying to sell their company’s products, or ‘network’ 1 on 1, hoping that at least one person will buy something or join their opportunity.
So, in a sea of salespeople, how on earth can YOU stand out?
Better yet, how can you cut to the chase, and eliminate all the wasted time from your day ‘networking’ with zero results.
It can be very discouraging…working so hard, but without the results to show for it.
And time is money…any time you’re putting in networking 1 on 1 is precious time taken away from something else. Not to mention that your business will grow sooo slowly if this is your main method of marketing.
So…what the heck do you do??
Here are 5 killer strategies for marketing your MLM in 2019…for working smart not hard, for claiming your time back, and for making yourself stand out in an ocean of competitors selling the same thing; so you can capture people’s attention and make selling and recruiting painless.
A network marketing business should be treated like any other business.
And just like any other (successful) business, you need to have a clear business plan with realistic and measurable objectives, as well as a solid marketing plan.
To prepare your plan, you should do your homework to learn critical details like who your competitors are, who your successful leaders are and what strategies they’re using to grow their business, who your target market is, where you can find them, and what the most popular products in your company are.
A clear plan with clear objectives will also help keep you moving forward, guide your business activities, and help you avoid overwhelm and distractions (which are super common for ALL new business owners!).
2. Brand Yourself
The most successful network marketers know the importance of branding themselves separately from the company they are selling products for.
People won’t necessarily know or trust Company X, but they can definitely get to know, like, and trust *you* if you can brand yourself well and provide value to them.
The more value you provide, the more people will trust you, because they won’t feel like you’re just trying to make a buck from them.
There are many reasons why branding yourself is so important, but another key reason is because as your own brand, your business isn’t completely dependent on your company.
If the company went under tomorrow (kinda like a certain clothing company did not so long ago), you would still have your brand, your reputation, your audience, your influence, your e-mail list, etc. All you would need to do is shift your focus to selling other related products, and business continues as usual...
