The internet is full of millions of self replicated websites, and if you're a Network Marketer you probably have one too! So how do YOU get noticed in this sea of duplicated websites?? Well to be absolutely truthful you do not! Have you noticed that people do not magically show up on your site, sign themselves up and start building a business?
:-) I thought you might have noticed that! :-)
Your company or team could have the most fantastic replicated "website that sells" but that alone won't bring you customers! My primary company has some of the most brilliant and effective marketing tools I have ever seen. They work REALLY well, to the point that we often get our prospects signing up as distributors automatically!
But even this kind of amazing marketing system will not bring you success in network marketing without the most crucial ingredient to the WHOLE puzzle!
Did you know that MOST people do NOT join a Network Marketing business because of the great company or products? Most people join because the TRUST the person who introduced them to the business! It is YOU that are your own best business asset. Yes, you!
Take a moment and go look in the mirror! That is who is going to attract people to your team. Your own unique, beautiful self with your own special talents, gifts and contributions to the world.
We are all given a gift, a contribution to make to the world, and as you find that, you will more and more find what your unique contribution is to Network Marketing, to your team!
And you will find that you begin to attract other like minded, like hearted people!! Ooops ... you looked in the mirror and don't like what you see? I understand ... I feel that way too sometimes. None of us are perfect! And that's where personal growth and development comes in.
That's one of the greatest parts of this business... you get paid to grow personally. How cool is that? (I'll tell you more about that another time!)
Think about it ... why did are you reading this report? You probably found my article while surfing the web. You read a little and felt enough of a sense of trust to spend your valuable time with me.
In network marketing, building relationships is your key to success. When people get to know you, like you and trust you, when they are ready to start their home business they will seek YOU out.
You will be their first choice, rather than Jane Anonymous who they know nothing about, or Joe Hard Sell who is always "pitching" his opportunity but never bothers to build a relationship with people.
AND because you DO have a fantastic business opportunity with great products, great pay and so forth, you will be an outstanding choice for them as a business partner! If you offer real VALUE to people, not just a sales pitch, you will build long term trust with people. So how do you build trust, offer real Value, and share more about yourself with people?
1. Offer something of value to your prospects. Share things that YOU find valuable. Don't give away junk! I have a page on one of my websites on free eBooks. I actually spent a week researching the net to find materials that I felt were valuable, high quality, and offered useful information.
I've seen so many newsletter publishers or websites on the net giving away junk. Maintain quality and your prospects will appreciate you and trust you and stay in touch with you!
2. Be a Real Person. We have discovered what we feel is the most fantastic and effective prospecting tool ever developed ... the Face Page. A Face page is a unique web page that is about You! :-) It about your values, your vision, and the things that mean the most to you! You can create one for free at many web communities such as Ryze.com, or you can get an industry specific page at GreatestNetworker.com.
Your Face page offers useful information to people with no strings attached. It has links to your business websites ... and through this page you can offer people valuable free gifts, like complimentary eBooks, audio training, e-mail training courses.
On the internet, one of the ways to build trust is to give people valuable information that they are looking for. The Face page helps you to do this. I have found the Face page to be a very effective Viral Marketing tool as well. My husband loved what I wrote on my Face page so he passed it around to our friends and family and his family!
Now several of these folks are looking into my business as a result of his sharing the page. Whenever he or my family tells their friends about my business, they send them to my Face page. I have made thousands of dollars through my Face Page, and it's NOT because it sells anything!
3. Brand Yourself. You've heard of branding? Except in network marketing branding is a little different. Instead of branding your product or business, brand yourself! Branding yourself creates a consistent personal presence both locally and on the internet so people can get to know you.
Use the same name and e-mail on different internet forums. You can even get a domain that is your name! Then people can type in your name and get to your Face Page.
When talking to your prospects you can tell them where to find you on the web, at www.YourName.com. That way, when people type in www.YourName.com they will get to your Face page and get to know you. Best of all, as you do this consistently, people will begin to seek you out and begin to call you! That is when network marketing becomes REALLY fun!
