How to find new sales reps for your WAHM business

The Warm Market Challenge

A common experience for new Network Marketers or Party Plan WAHM , when they are told to talk to their "warm market," family and friends is they find themselves in the NFL, No Friends Left and don't know where to turn.

So, they do what I did, turn to the Internet thinking that it will all be thornless roses from now on only to find that it is even harder to keep people in their business. They are back to square on.

Okay. The challenge is in the word "get."

No one wants to be gotten. It sounds like you're grabbing them by the neck and hanging onto them.

People who know, like and trust you.

Your family and friends may know and like you. They may even trust you as a human being, but not as a business person unless you already are a business person when you introduce them to network marketing.

From my own experience, when I first found the Internet, it is quite possible to burn your potential market even before you've had a chance to know them. Be forewarned.

The Solution

You need to build a new warm market, which involves meeting new people, getting them to know you and allowing the trust to develop before you introduce them to your business.

It's a simple skill and a skill that works. Here are the...

6 Sponsoring Steps

1. Content. Create magnetic content.

Magnetic means content that will attract people to you - content that has Value.

Think of others, not yourself. Create content that they want and be willing to help them get what they want. It's not about you.

Content can be anything. This article is content. A video, blog post, webinar, pod cast or even images speak to one of the issues that face people when sponsoring reps.

2. Capture.

Capture people's attention. Does that word bring up a picture of a lead capture page where you ask someone for their name and address?

Capturing people's attention doesn't have to involve a form they fill out.

Remember, the trust part? People are reluctant to give an email address from someone they don't know even if the information is compelling.

You can capture people's attention through social media easily.

Want to do video marketing? Start a YouTube channel. Make videos with a subscriber button visible. Anytime they are on YouTube, they will be exposed to your message.

How about Facebook? You can create a page or a group. Start posting images that speak to their needs. Motivation, encouragement images are big.

And while you're away from your computer, use Instagram, Pinterest and a host of other social media to get your message across.

But do not sell. When we talk about content, we are talking value, not here's my business link.

There's a saying. Nobody likes to be sold. Everybody likes to buy.

3. Connect.

Connect with them = build a relationship. Chat with them. Find out who they are. Share who you are. This is the place to ask questions. Now you have even more information to create the magnetic content.

On social media, it doesn't have to take long. You can inspire them to like your fan page or join your community in just a few interactions. Or it may take several says. You'll learn to judge when the time is right, when they are open to hear more.

Always - let them ask for the information.

4. Comment.

Comment to develop a social engagement. Network marketers seem to forget to comment. We all want engagement on our posts, other people to comment.

But you need to comment on other's posts as well. If you don't do this, you are missing out on a great opportunity to develop know, like and trust with others. I don't mean by spamming your links in the comments, but by making an insightful remark about the post that adds to the content.

Yes, that's right; comments are content.

5. Communicate.

Communicate and Master the art.

Find out what your prospects want by asking questions. What are you looking for? What is it most difficult for you? Finding people to talk to? Talking to people? Getting traffic to your website?

The answer might be to direct them to a product or service, it might be show them your business, or even sending them to someone else. Listening, then helping solve a problem show the prospect that you are a trusted advisor.

6. Close.

Close qualified prospects into your business. How often have heard the term "qualify." I've been told to qualify people by finding out if they are teachable? So, Naturally I would ask them that. Of course they'd say "Yes."

Never do that.

Instead, give them a task to do. Taking action qualifies them, so you could invite them to your team. From there invite them to your business.

Those are the 6 necessary steps to easily sponsor reps into your business through social media.

How to Generate Party Plan Work at Home Mom Local Leads Online

When you are expanding your  party plan wahm  business to include online marketing, one of the first things you should do is lock down your local market. You are probably already generating  local leads with drop cards, post cards, newspaper ads and a number of other offline advertising methods, right? There are also, most likely, other reps from your company, living in your city, who are doing the same things. Here is something to think about.  

While these activities increase awareness of your opportunity and/or team, the chances of a prospect hearing about your company and, shortly after, searching Google for it also increases. You want to be there when they do.
For instance, imagine a person picking up another local reps card and calling them. If that rep is any good she  will not try to sell the person on the spot but will invite him to a presentation later that night or week. Whether that person agrees (or has to think about it) I guarantee, more times than not, the next step they make is to do a Google search for your company. You want your  youtube videos, articles and blogs to show up.
Google returns results that it thinks are most relevant to the searcher so a person who lives in  "Smileville" would type into Google 'your company name Smileville ' and wait for what pops up. Hopefully, you are there. It is very easy to get into the top 10 Google listings for your company for your city or surrounding cities because most network marketers are not optimizing their online ads for party plan  local leads. There are taking more of a shotgun approach.
Your you tube  video titles, descriptions, keywords should include your city and state. You should target your city and state with at least one video, article and facebook ad  each week. Try it and you will be amazed how easy it is to generate local leads online. Especially if you live in a small to medium size city.
If your video, article or ad is in the top 10 search results, it does not matter if the person searching was not originally your prospect. They are yours now. Do yourself a favor. If you want to generate MLM local leads online, lock down your city first.

Facebook Ads for WAHM Party Plan business

Creating a solid advertising strategy can be one of the hardest parts of social media marketing. This is especially true for  party plan businesses like Pampered Chef or Scentsy  that use Facebook. There are so many advertising options available through the platform, so how do you know which ones you should be using for your business?

Here is some insight into the different ads you should be using on Facebook in order to see the most gain from your efforts:

If you want to get more page likes

You can use the ad Page Like. This type of ad can be used to reach a specific range within your target audience. You can target your local market or the whole USA.  

For instance, if you want to reach out to people who are visiting your website, add a snippet of code called a "Custom Audience Pixel" on your site. This is provided by Facebook.

It will target people who visit your website the next day or up to 180 days after and they will see you pop up in their news feed.

If you want to include your hostess leads, 

You can use this type of ad to target the people who have signed up for your email list as well. Simply import your email list and create a Custom Audience. Those emails are matched to current Facebook users and an audience is created for your ads.

If you want to increase your email list

Use the Page Link Post in order to get your fans to subscribe to your email list. This can also be used to reach people who are fans of similar pages who are not a member of your fan base.

This can be done by promoting a contest or offering a free product when people register with their email.

If you want to sell more products

You can also use the Page Link Post to promote your products to your fans, email subscribers, and people who recently visited your product pages.

Track your sales that result from your ad with a "Conversion Tracking Pixel" in order to measure your results. This piece of code is provided by Facebook and should be installed on your landing page after users make a purchase.

If you want to promote your content

Another way to use the Page Link Post ad-type is to help promote your content. You want your content to reach as many people as possible. That content is what helps label you as an authority figure to your fans. Without that content, people will wonder why they should place any value in your brand.

These are just some of the advertising options that Facebook has to offer, but they are some of the most effective. Advertising on social media can have a huge impact on your brand when you take the time to do it right.

What types of ads are you running on Facebook? Have you set up some permanent ads to run continuously? What is your strategy?

MLM Network Marketing WAHM myths busted

What is better than busting some myths, busting preconceived notions as well? People surround MLM with a mysterious veil for no reason. The world is already full of misconceptions and confusion, but there is a solution to change opinions and perception. Busting the myth through facts from an industry that has been around for several decades. The industry has produced more successful people than not. The only way to lose in the business is not to try. Even working at McDonald's requires some effort. The very act of trying does not guarantee success, but it is better than watching soap operas all day with no income possibilities. No we can bust the top three myths in MLM. 

MLM Network Marketing  is a Quick Rich Scheme

MLM may look like it is a quick rich program, but it is not. Real people are putting in real honest effort to make their living through the business. The business takes serious blood, sweat and tears. There is nothing quick about this business, except for the setup. People underestimate the business potential, because they think it is easy. It is not, but it is interesting and fun. It has potential to provide a residual income and offer you opportunities beyond the brick and glass careers. There are times when people want to quit, but they stick with it, because of the opportunity. The opportunity that it does promise is the ability to earn as much or as little as you want, however you have to work for it.

MLM  Networking Marketing  Will make you Famous

One of the silliest myths is that MLM will make you famous. While you could be, become well known in the industry, it is unlikely you will become "famous." People catch a blog post or even a trade magazine and see top performers on the cover page. They think this could make them famous and rich. This is not the case at all; you could be featured in a trade publication. This career could lead to big things in the future, but all good things one must start at the bottom. Working hard and staying on target are the best ways to become famous with your team.

MLM Networking Marketing  is Only a Trend

MLM is not a trend. Trends last a few years and die off; this business has been around for a few decades. While technology and products come and go, the business itself is rock solid. Most established companies have about ten or more years of solid success, so it is best to shop around. While there is negative publicity, you will have to do your own research to determine if one type of style is good for you or not.

How to make money with Scentsy Work at home mom business

In this Scensty review I will answer the following questions: Can you make money selling Scentsy? Is Scentsy a Scam or a good company? How do you make money selling Scentsy products?

The answers may surprise you. 

If you have found this video, there is a good chance you are interested in selling Scentsy, are looking for an honest Scentsy review and want to know if you really can make money selling the Scentsy products and Scentsy as an MLM business opportunity. 

Maybe you have been introduced to the Scentsy products or opportunity and you would like to know what kind of Scentsy reviews are out there on the web and if people are really making money selling the products and the entire system. 

It's also a possibility that you are a new Scentsy rep and want to know if there are any negative Scentsy reviews, or even people going so far as to make Scentsy scam claims before your prospects hit the web to do their research. 

First of all, YES. You can Make Money Selling Scentsy Products. 

You can rest assured there is no Scentsy scam going on, but just because this company is legit doesn't mean you are going to make loads of money. 

One reason you hear "Scentsy scam" claims and read negative Scentsy review testimonials is because many people struggle to make the money they desire when they join Scentsy.

At the end of the day everyone needs to realize that MLM is not get rich quick. 

The one major barrier people face when they try to make money selling products like Scentsy is that they don't know how to market. Because they don't know how to present the Scentsy products to people and they lack the skillset necessary to have massive success early on when they get started with a company like Scentsy so, they quit.

The biggest reason most people who want to make money online never do is because they do not know how to attract people to what most people are actually looking for.

There are NOT millions of people dying to sell Scentsy candle  products and become Scentsy reps, BUT there are millions of people who desperately want experience financial freedom.

Many people get into businesses like Scentsy and try selling to friends and family. Once they go through this small list, they have no idea how to correctly find other people who would want to join them in business. 

That is when most people quit trying to make money selling Scentsy and call it the "Scentsy scam." That is also why there are a number of bad Scentsy review videos.

They just have no idea how to market the company. Whether or not they develop the skillset will depend on hard work, dedication and the important knowledge that is not often taught in the company. They also need to refocus from pitching their business opportunity to presenting financial freedom, vacation time with families and the lifestyle we all desire.

Once you know how to market your business opportunity, you will find that growing a successful online home business is extremely possible and simple.

Bottom line is this, forget about Scentsy scam claims, negative Scentsy review videos and begin focusing on Scentsy success through marketing.
