Marketing consist of strategies, techniques and concepts that you can prepare & persuade your prospects that you are the right fit for them. It’s the message that prepares the prospect for the sale or long term business relationship.

1. Know Your Target Audience

When you own in business, Your major concern is to get your product or service to those that are looking for what you are marketing.

This will keep you from all the frustration of rejections & wasted dollars and sense when using any paid strategy. So you must know that you are relevant to the market you serve.

2.  Relationship (Marketing)

This is a facet of customer relationship management (CRM) that focuses on customer loyalty and long-term customer engagement rather than shorter-term goals like customer acquisition and individual sales. This entitles building a interpersonal relationship with e-mail or face to face to keep a personal touch instead of just making sales. Email is still one of the most powerful relationship marketing mediums, as it is just so personal.

3. Create and deliver something of value…

Value can come in many facets, such as white paper, download-able PDF or in the form of free webinars and informational video that educates the client of any changes or specialized market changes. This positions you as a authority in your prospective niche.

4. Permission Marketing

This is the privilege (not the right) of delivering anticipated, personal and relevant messages to people who actually want to open and read your emails. This content provides value and over a given time with consistent delivery will cause your prospects to buy what you recommend. Courses, training etc. as resources that can promote their cause or business especially if they are looking to get results that you have consistently shared with them.

5. Sale to Your List

When it comes to building any business with longevity it is essential that we master customer service skills.

 

YouTube Preview Image

 

Here are some of the skills that we must master.

1. Patience

If you deal with customers on a daily basis, you must learn to operate in patience. When they come to you frustrated because something didn’t go as planned or said, you must be sure to take the time to truly figure out what they want or need to be satisfied.  Remember your customer would rather get competent service than be rushed out the door!

2. Clear Communication Skills

As a competent business consultant or manager we need to be cautious about how some of our communication habits translate to customers, and it’s best to stay on the side of caution whenever we find our-self questioning a situation. Also when it comes to important points that you want to get clearly to customers, keep it simple and leave nothing to doubt.

3. Knowledge of the Product

We know that facts tell and stories sell although a clear knowledge of your product will always prove to be a customer service skill that some will fall short on. Without understanding your product from a knowledgeable prospective it could  be fatal to build a quick trust with your client. You could use one of my favorite P.A.T. concepts.  This will help customers when they run into problems. Point At Tools

4. Ability to “Read” Customers

This is an important part of a personally building relationships with your customer/client as well, knowing how to read personalities is essential. Grab the Personalities PDF here… Remember it takes knowing your customers to create a personal experience for them.

More importantly though, this skill is essential because you don’t want to mis-read a customer and end up losing them all together due to confusion and miscommunication.

5. Goal Oriented Focus

This is something that many overlook as a customer service skill, but I assure you that it is vitally important. When you have a goal written as to your core expectation for your customer this will create a heart felt initiative to achieve customer satisfaction first hand.

6. Ability to Handle Surprises

Sometimes the customer support arena will throw you off you guard.

With problems that you encounter that’s not covered in the company’s guidelines, it can get tricky. Your customers may not react how you thought they would. You must be trained how to solve small dilemmas as they arise with little or no stress.

7. Closing skills

You must have a genuine interest to serve your customer, therefore having in mind that if you give them what they wanted you complete the process. Being able to close with a customer means being able to end the conversation with confirmed satisfaction and with the customer feeling that everything has been taken care of (or will be).

8. Willing to learn

This may be missed as a customer care issue, although if you don’t seek to improve, whether it’s building products, marketing businesses, or helping customers, you will get left behind by the people willing to invest in their skills.

YouTube Preview Image

 

 

 

There are fifteen time wasters that successful people avoid and we are going to share them with you below…

  1. Not Listening

Failure to listen to sound counsel and take in information that would change your life will waste time if not implemented.

      2. Not Finishing

The easiest way to measure how effective someone is with their time is to see what they actually get done. Successful people are always great finishers.

      3. Working Late

Working consistent long hours numbs your brain and hurts your connections in relationships and also could stifle your creativity.

       4. Lack Of Focus

Lack of focus and shifting priorities will always create unnecessary chaos for people that are in alignment for success.

        5. Bad Planning

Putting time into planning negates the need to waste time making adjustment in the long run.

 

 

         6. Technology Interruptions

Don’t allow technology to be an distraction because it is a great asset if properly used.

        7. Initiative Overload

Biting off to much is a sure way to over complicate things and can become unproductive.

         8. Drop-In-Visits

Every business should have a open door policy, although don’t allow unscheduled interruptions derail your focus.

         9. Bad Delegation

Successful leaders view delegation as proper alignment of resourcing and match every task to avoid unnecessary challenges.

 10. Poor Organization 

As a leader we should never have a lack of organizational skills. We must solve this issue because it is a silent time waster.

         11. Procrastination

Real leaders never avoid big issues, they attack them head on. Be proactive or you will find yourself in a reactionary defensive posture.

         12. Improper use of ” Yes & No”

Good leadership understand that questions deserve more than a answer, they deserve a correct answer. Don’t just answer, be Intentional.

          13. Unproductive Meetings

Don’t allow yourself to be added to nonsense meetings that waste your valuable time. Some people like to hear themselves speak.

          14. Not Learning

This one is big, because if you don’t allow yourself to continue to grow and develop, how do you expect to make the most of your time?

Great leaders are always ahead of the learning curve and know who and what to invest their time in.

         15. Not Engaging

You must spend time in collaboration and dialog with others or you will miss significant opportunities. After all every business is successful because of the people and connections they encounter.

 

A good quote on time is: “When you kill time, remember that it has no resurrection.”

1. Be genuinely interested in People

Network marketing, mlm or direct sales requires you to build people and  they will build the business.

You must be specifically interested in people. The main focus is to find out how you can solve a person’s most pressing issue & this will always prompt you to have a genuine interest in people.

2. Focus on the positives

When you connect with people whether hot, warm or cold market, you must always focus on the positives because people will be mostly employee minded.
3. Converse not debate or Argue

When talking  to your prospects you don’t ever want to argue about what they may think or not think in relation to product or service. Always exchange your thoughts and be open to listen to your prospects ideas or feedback.
4. Respect don’t impose,criticize,or judge.

There will always be someone that will say something that you don’t like. Always respond by saying, “ I totally understand _________, although have you ever looked at it this way? ” You will always get better response when you agree and then ask a question.
5. Put a person in his or her best light

The most communicated way to get a person to be open to you is to give a authentic compliment to them. Notice something that you can commend them about whether it be their voice or their posture or attentiveness.

 

6. Embrace differences while building on commonalities.

Speak always about the common interest that you pick up from the prospect in relation to their positiveness that will be effective for them in business.

7. Be True to Yourself

If they ask you a personal question or even give you some hard facts that they have encountered, then tell them the truth and not try to avoid the question. Be willing to respond by saying ” Based on what you just said, Are you willing to take the responsibility to achieve the results that you desire?”

8. 50/50 Rule

Ask questions although always be tentative to listen to see how you can address the prospects needs. When prospecting you must listen with a genuine interest to benefit the other party. “ALWAYS”

9. Ask purposed Questions

When you ask open ended questions and listen then you get a genuine response. ” What are your goals for this year” ” What influenced you to start looking for a business in the first place?” Asking elicit questions will in return give you elicit responses.

Learning how to get people to join your Network Marketing business is key when it comes to this business model.

 

 

When it comes to getting people to make a solid decision about joining your Network Marketing Business, it is critical to learn people skills.

It will always relate to how many people you can share a opportunity to solve a current problem they are facing. You must be genuinely interested in people without causing any  interruptions with their current lifestyle while building rapport.

 

I share this concept here in this video with the acronym L.O.V.E. on how to get people to join your Network Marketing Business.

 

1. Listening & watching

You must be interested in people therefore always willing to have conversations that will give you an opportunity to ask probing questions. The key point is to be listening to see if there is a need. Once you find a need you want to form a comment that offers your solution to that specific need.

Examples: How do love the job that you are currently doing ? How long have you been currently working there?

2. Offer Solutions

Once you find out how to address what issues that they currently having, it will then be time to package your response in the form of a solution.

When you offer answers to problems with your product or service then you can have great results. After all your potential prospect is looking for answers. It is up to you to be skillful enough to listen and find out exactly how you can be of help.

3. Value based

When you have a genuine interest to help people you will respond with a attitude of educating your prospect. You must be married to the process and never attached to the outcome. Non-verbal communication is 92% and you must always flow at a high level of energy with posture whether you get a sale or not.

4. Enjoy what you are doing

When you love what you do then you will be great at it. Always have a attitude of gratitude knowing that you are helping people build their network marketing business.

If you love what you are doing then you will always get better and better therefore helping enough people to get what they want. Don’t do anything that you do not have passion to do.
