Simple ways to promote + grow your Network Marketing Business:
Quickly, A little bit about me…
I am not a top level Rodan + Fields Consultant, however, I did quickly build a small team and share R+F products with a handful of Preferred Customers. These business partners and customers quickly saw the results that R+F’s products can give you and have been using them ever since. I had an upline that was very successful, an upline of Level V / Lexus Achievers who are running thriving R+F businesses today. I have seen the success that R+F and other direct sales businesses can bring. REALLY, if the business model is there, success can come with consistent hard work and a little bit of passion. OKAY… a LOT of passion! You can achieve success in anything you do, even if it is in a network marketing business.
Digital design and developing websites is my hobby and day job. I am passionate about design and continue designing, creating and learning new things every day of my life. I love all forms of art and creation; from freehand drawing, hand-lettering and calligraphy to photography, digital illustration and layout. I strive to be up to date on the latest trends and marketing opportunities. I hope you find some of the information I share useful in your ventures.
Kindly visit my instragram and pinterest pages. I’m happy to help support your business on social media! You may find this post useful; Important details to help your business grow using Pinterest.
Below you will find a few tips that help me get started with each business venture.
Write down your story:
First, you should write down your story. By story, I am referring to your journey and why you are a part of whatever it is you’re a part of. For example, if you are an R +F Consultant, ask yourself these questions and write down the answers. “Why am I using Rodan + Fields?” AND “Why have I decided to start my own virtual skincare franchise? Be completely honest and use your own words. When you are clear about your “Why” and can clearly explain how R+F (or your network marketing business product) solved a problem for you, your audience will be more likely to listen with empathy rather than half listen as if you’re trying to sell them something.
Check out these printable planning and checklists that may be helpful. I’ve received great feedback from those who have downloaded the iPhone wallpapers, they have been great conversation starters with potential customers.
It is important to designate a space where you can store your business materials in an organized fashion. Organization is essential in any business, especially a network marketing business. Each business is a little different and requires different tools to help keep your office neat and in order.
Determine Your Audience:
Then, you need to determine your audience and get your product into people’s hands. As an R+F Consultant, your audience is anyone with skin, right? For starters, try and narrow this broad audience down. Start with how R+F products have helped your skin. If you did Step #1, and wrote down your story, you should have this part clear. Target those that could appreciate your story and be inspired by your results.
Share Your Story:
Once you’ve written down your “why” and determined your audience, it is time to share your story! Share your story with those you interact with on a daily basis. Sprinkle it in… If your experience is anything like mine, you’ll of had amazing results from an R+F regimen, so sharing your story will be simple! Your passion and excitement about your results and how R+F has changed your skin will come through in your voice. AND THEN, the best part is sharing how starting your own R+F business has changed your life! Again, in my experience, I’ve met many amazing people; helped many solve their skin problems by introducing them to R+F; purchased my personal skincare products at a discount; and made extra money! Leave a business card or something to help remember you and your contact info.
The good news is there is so much inspiration out there to help keep us inspired on a daily basis. Motivational quotes are a must have for each and every day of my life. I love to constantly be reminded of all the important words of wisdom. I love to visit designerprintables.com to download motivational quote printables and posters for FREE. Designer Printables is a new resource of free printables, SVG graphics and inspiration for the DIY Creative.
Post and Engage on Pinterest:
One of my favorite social media channel is Pinterest. I’m sure the majority of you reading this post have a Pinterest account and love to browse pins for hours. Pinterest is one of the main sources of traffic to my website.
Do you find it challenging to keep up with the forever changing algorithms in Pinterest? I do, so I continue to conduct my own experiments. There are two things that consistently help me reach almost 1 Million monthly viewers each month; Create fresh content + Schedule Pins. When I create and post new pins, whether they’re motivational quotes, blog post images or product images, I find that my pins are put in front of a few more viewers. The more content I add, the more my number of pin views and impressions increase. It was becoming almost impossible to find the time to post manually throughout the day, so I started to look into some of the ‘scheduling tools’ I was hearing about. When I started scheduling my pins with BoardBooster, I found so much extra time in my day as well as increased my Pinterest viewers.
Get the product into potential Preferred Customers (PC) hands:
It is also important to get the product into potential Preferred Customers (PC) hands. For Rodan + Fields, network marketing business, one way to do this is to purchase Microdermabrasion Paste packets with your Consultant Replenishment Purchase (CRP), as well as Redefine Night Renewing Serum (blue) & Redefine Lip Renewing Serum (silver). Many consultants find cute little mesh bags, paper bags and other creative ways to package and present the products. If you send one paste packet (2-3 uses) and one of each capsule, that is usually enough for someone to experience the amazing first time results from these products. To avoid confusion, it is a good idea to send along mini-facial instructions. You can create and print your own by purchasing a digital file or prints.
Say Thank You:
Lastly, another very important thing to do in life and business is to say “thank you”. Say “thank you” as well as send a thoughtful handwritten note. A handwritten note goes a LONG way! Not many people take the time to send a personalized thank you! With all the technology and ways to keep in touch, it is easy to get used to this convenience and start saying “thank you” in a text message, or on Facebook so everyone can see it (this can come off as self serving if you don’t follow up with a personalized heartfelt thank you.). If you are in a network marketing business, it is a good idea to thank both your customers and business partners…often.
An easy way to say “thank you” the old-fashioned way is to be prepared. Stock up on thank you note cards, envelopes and stamps. Keep a list throughout your days of who you would like to thank and why. Pick one day a week to write thank you notes, stuff envelopes, postage and prepare for the post office.
In conclusion, when joining a network marketing business, clearly knowing and communicating your story and “why” will help jump start your business. Thank you very much for reading, I hope you’ve found some value in this information about promoting and growing your network marketing business.
