1) Finding New Interested People – Every network marketer needs an abundant source of motivated, interested people. Let’s face it; if you don’t have interested people to work with then you probably hate this business. You need a system that helps you find interested people. This can be done through marketing online or offline, or by making up a names list. I personally prefer Article Marketing. It’s one of the most powerful ways to attract and educate INTERESTED people.
For online business, it is very important to have a well organized website. You will require a domain name which speaks for your product and service business. Your domain name will cost you around every year. Your website next requires a hosting. Hosting costs around every year. For accepting all kinds of cards you will need an account with PayPal. This PayPal commission will cost you for each transaction or you can also pay 0 each month. If you are into affiliate marketing, your affiliate commissions will fluctuate. On an average it will cost you around each month.
If you have the opportunity to distribute your materials to clients or at networking meetings, do it. Always bring brochures, newsletters and other information about your company and your products and services. Try to have your links listed on them to your company website (no brainer), Facebook, twitter, linked in and any other social media site that you may belong to. The more people can see, touch and hear things about your product and services, they’ll be more likely to use you or refer you to others.
You can control your sales with postcards. You can set a limited amount of postcard to be sent this week or month. This way, a limited people will contact you from a specific area.
When attending a business mixer, act like a host, not a guest. You are wasting your time at networking mixers if you stand around visiting with coworkers or others whom you already know rather than meeting new contacts and introducing them around. These networking meetings offer a great way to increase your visibility! The more visible you are the more your contacts will start to consider you a connector and contacting you about anything they may have a need for in their business and personal life. You can ask to be the ambassador or visitor host in the organizations to which you belong this will ensure you meet as many people as possible.
Hence, they can easily relate to you if you use this for your promotion. You will be able to grab their attention easily. But of course, the design and theme of your shirt will also have great bearing for the effectiveness of this marketing strategy.
