Forever Living network marketing reps: Forget chasing friends and family. Learn how 7-figure earners build huge businesses using tactics rarely taught at live events and on Forever Living webinars.
If you seek to become a top earner, the way to do it is to implement a promotional plan that puts your message in front of thousands of people – not merely a handful of friends, family members and people you know.
You have to learn how to market- like a REAL business!
Here are 3 ways top earners dominate today:
– Market Effectively
Learn to market like a real business. Network marketers in companies such as Forever Living are taught a lot about how to network, but almost nothing about how to market.
Purchasing leads and business cards, and setting up your company-provided replicated website seems like marketing. A lot of these tools are ineffective and a waste of time. A variety of elements factor into a marketing plan:
Identify Your Target Market: Who is your target market for your Forever Living opportunity? People who own businesses? Broke people who need to make money? Focus on frustrated network marketers who seek solutions to their business problems. Network marketers won’t waste your time with stupid questions about whether this is a scam, a pyramid, etc. People in network marketing have signaled they are willing to put a monthly product purchase onto their credit card.
Adopt A Compelling Position: Thousands of people are promoting Forever Living. Why should anyone sign up with you? Decide what sets you apart and communicate that to the marketplace.
Promotion Strategy: Once you run out of friends and family to prospect into your Forever Living business, how will you generate leads? Use a proven online marketing system that teaches strategies to generate leads online.
Follow-Up: Once you generate a lead, how will you follow up? To follow up, call your leads, and add them to an automated email follow up system.
– Focus On Marketing More Than Duplication
Traditionally, network marketers in companies like Forever Living are taught to keep their business-building activities extremely simple and duplicable by others Focus On Marketing More Than Duplication People in network marketing opportunities such as Forever Living are told they need to keep everything they do simple so people in their Forever Living downline can duplicate these activities.
How effective is this strategy to keep everything simple so other can duplicate it? For a very small percentage of marketers, this strategy is effective. But for the masses of network marketers in opportunities such as Forever Living, keeping all the activities in their business simple will NOT necessarily promote duplication.
To prove this to you, look at these stats:
– Only about 1 in 5 people in your Forever Living downline will sponsor anyone else.
– Of those that do sponsor people, most will only sponsor 2-3 people total.
– The remaining 80% of your Forever Living downline won’t ever do a darn thing.
In other words, the keep-it-simple approach so popular in network marketing has an 80% failure rate!
The strategy to keep-it-simple sounds great but in practice does NOT invoke high levels of duplication and creates problems very few people ever recognize. The most common way to keep it simple is to use warm market recruiting, which is to approach family and friends and present the Forever Living business opportunity to them.For decades network marketers have been teaching this strategy not because it’s the best but because its the most simple…but simple does not mean effective!
This strategy can actually lead to people quitting Forever Living. Once people run out of others to talk to within the first 30-90 days, they will often quit Forever Living because they have NO CLUE how to perform the one activity they must rely on to build a business: advertising and marketing to generate consistent lead flow. The second problem this friends and family approach creates is it repels high caliber prospects. Ideal prospects for a Forever Living business, people with transferable skills and large personal and professional networks such as real estate professionals, professional salespeople, and other business people tend NOT to want to approach family and friends about their opportunity. Many professionals want to protect their reputation and do NOT want to introduce their friends and colleagues to an opportunity that they just got started with such as Forever Living.
So should you begin by approaching friends and family about your Forever Living business? Sure. But you must learn to market in order to build a real business because you WILL run out of leads. Your best prospects are likely going to want to market their business professionally, not pester friends at cocktail parties. Learn to market online and you can grow a Forever Living business with less duplication, while you attract higher caliber prospects into your business. If only a few high caliber team members learn to market Forever Living online, you could build a very large Forever Living organization.””
– Spend Time with Entrepreneurial People
Understand that having a job and building a Forever Living enterprise are extremely different. While other people waste time watching reality TV, you’re going to be on the phone with prospects.
Pretty soon your friends and relatives won’t understand what you’re doing. That’s when they’ll start making annoying comments:
– Why don’t you focus on a job like everyone else?
– When are you going to stop wasting your time on that silly thing?
– You’ll never make any money doing that!
This is employee mindset. Do not allow your mentality to be influenced by these ignorant comments. Make sure you drastically limit the amount of time you spend around people who don’t understand what you’re doing. You’ll gain friendships and have more fun.
