You’re part of an MLM business. When you signed up, you thought you were going to be making thousands within a month, only to find out that MLM business marketing is a lot harder than it first appears.
f you’re down on your luck, take a glance at these tips for running a successful MLM business:
Be Realistic and Knowledgeable
Don’t go into an MLM business thinking you’re going to make thousands in a week with very little effort. Your MLM business will only be successful as you make it. The more effort you put into your business, the more you’ll get out of it. Set small goals and expectations to help you achieve your larger goals.
Research different MLM companies prior to choosing one and make sure you understand how the company works and the products/services they’re offering. You’ll want a good knowledge base of the company prior to jumping in, so you can best inform and market it to others. Prospects have a choice about who they buy their products/services from when it comes to MLMs, so you’ll want people to like, trust and respect you. Once this happens, they’ll be more likely to become your customers.
Love the Product You’re Selling
Is it possible to sell a product or service that you aren’t in love with? Sure it is, but you won’t find much success in the venture. If you already love the product you’re selling, marketing it to others will come naturally and easy. Your enthusiasm and commitment to the product will show in everything that you do. This will compel others to find out more information about your product/service. Success is sure to come when you’re selling something you love!
Keep It Genuine and Ethical
MLMs get a bad rap for being pyramid-scheme, scam companies. These stereotypes come from MLMers who deceive prospects to turn them into a customer. Instead of putting in hard time and effort into their MLM marketing strategy, they look for a quick and easy sell. Stick to the true facts when marketing your MLM and be real with your prospects. Otherwise, they’ll be quickly disappointed and won’t be coming back to you again.
Don’t Barrage Friends and Family
It’s one of the biggest MLM marketing faux pas out there. DO NOT barrage your friends and family with information about your MLM, unless they’re truly interested in your business. Constantly pestering friends/family with unwanted advertising is a wonderful way to ruin relationships and set a bad reputation for yourself as an entrepreneur. Identify your target audience and market to these people instead.
Identify Target Audience
Separate your business from your personal life. Set up different social media accounts, websites and email addresses for your MLM business. Identify the demographic most likely to buy your products/services. Consider categories such as age, cultural preferences and traits, how they use your products and more. Run Facebook ads and use Google Analytics to figure out what people engage most with your MLM. Then, adjust your marketing strategy to match your target audience’s lifestyles. This way, you’re putting your products/services in front of those who are interested when they’re most likely to see it. This increases your chances of turning a prospect into a customer.
Make Effort to Share Product/Business Plan Everyday
Consistency is key when it comes to MLM marketing. Make sure to share your product/services every day with others. On average, an individual must see a product/service four times before taking action.
Share your business plan as well. This will let others know where you are and how you’re achieving your success, inspiring them to follow you. It also shows how serious you are about your business and your business goals. If others see your success, they’re more likely to check out what you’re offering and even join in. If you have downlines, it’s important to show them how you got to where you are and the steps you take each day to continue this success.
Sponsor, Don’t Just Recruit
This is the golden rule of being a great leader. To be a good upline, you must TEACH your downlines how to achieve success, instead of recruiting them and leaving them to their own devices. You want your downlines to be successful; their success is yours ultimately. Make yourself available to give advice and answer questions. Take time with your downlines to ensure they understand the business. Help them with their marketing strategies. The more you teach your downlines, the more successful they’ll become. Remember, you can give a man a fish and it’ll feed him for a day, but if you teach a man to fish, he’ll be fed for a lifetime.
