How To Rapidly Grow Any Network Marketing Business
This is a very interesting question. It is from a network marketing subscriber. The questions is: ”I’d like to go to the Ambassador Level in my company in the next 3 months.”
Assuming that you ’re following the selling and recruiting training that your parent network company provides, here are some things to keep in mind and apply that would help you grow rapidly.
1. Remember, everything you do in your business is about benefits…what’s in it for your prospects, customers, and distributors?
This means that your prospects, customers, and distributors need to experience the promised benefits of your products to become prospects, remain customers, grow into distributors, and remain distributors. This means that, as much as possible, in all your interactions, you should be making sure that the person you are interacting with is experiencing one or more benefits of the products.
So for instance, when talking with a prospect, help them imagine how their life will be better after using the product. One of the best ways to do this, as I’m sure you know, is to give them free samples. When talking with a customer or distributor, make sure they are using the products as often and the way they should. Why? Because if they don’t use the products correctly, they are unlikely to experience the benefits. And once they stop experiencing the benefits, you lose them. This leads us to the next point…
2. You must follow up and keep the awareness of the benefits alive in the experiences of your contacts. You can do this in a couple of ways:
a. When you talk with a prospect to whom you’ve given a sample, or to a customer, or to a distributor, you can ask “So how is it going for you with such-and-such a product?” Don’t be afraid that if you ask they will discover that they don’t like the product and will stop buying. The fact is if they don’t, they will stop sooner or later anyway. So it is only to your advantage to find out as early as possible how they are doing with the product, so you can fix any problems that are starting.
b. Another way is to collect success stories of using the products and pass them on to all your contacts. For instance, you can give away a free prize for the person who submits the best success story of the month. Or you can make them “famous” by publishing their story in your newsletter. These stories remind readers of the benefits of using your products.
3. You must have an “Amazing Referral Program” that you have created to get your customers to become advocates of your business, and refer everyone they know.
In the prior Blog post, I went over a shortened version of what an, amazing referral program should be about and the way you ask for those referrals. So review that blog over and over again, and create your own, “Amazing Referral Program.”
4. Now comes what I refer to as my “Visualization Technique.” I’m a firm believer that we are what we think. If we think negatively, negativism will follow us. So believe that you’ve already achieved the Ambassador Level, and visualize what it will do for you both financially and also personally.
For example, if you believe that achieving this level, will provide the finances for purchasing a 6,000 square foot home, then visualize yourself living in it and experience the feelings you will get when you are living in it.
5. Since you are selling health-related products, join organizations or volunteer your time in places where you can meet people who have health issues and who may be able to take advantage of your product. You have to be careful here with the rules of the specific organization about whether you could talk about your product, etc. But the idea here is to find out where your prospects are and go there.
6. Build strong relationships with your customers, prospects, and distributors. With strong relationships you have a strong business. Two of my books can help you with this. One is called “The Secrets To Creating Lifelong Customers”, and the other is called “Up The Loyalty Ladder”. They can both be found on my website at www.kenvarga.com.
The important ingredient to building strong relationships is to know what’s important to your people besides just the business, and to become a resource for them regarding those important things. So for instance, if one of your distributors often needs babysitting services, you can send him news clippings of things related to babysitting, or keep your eyes open for good babysitters, or offer to babysit in an emergency. Helping them with things that are important to them builds and deepens relationships.
7. Lastly, you need to know your particular numbers. In other words, you need to know how many people you need to contact to yield how many prospects. How many prospects will yield how many customers? How many customers will yield how many distributors? How long does a distributor remain a distributor? Etc.
When you know your numbers you are able to keep track of whether or not you are on target to your goal of Ambassador. Your numbers will tell you what activities you need to improve on in order to reach your goal.
If you execute the above steps well and diligently, you will reach your goal in the shortest time possible.
