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.

How to Fast Track Your Success In Your Home Based MLM Business

So you've just joined a  MLM  Network Marketing company and you're jumping out of your skin with excitement. Congratulations! With the economy in a plateau, Network Marketing has continued to increase in popularity. More and more people are looking to start their own home based business and since most Network Marketing companies are pretty affordable to join, people who were once closed to the idea are now becoming more and more open. Seriously... there hasn't been a better time to start your own MLM business. Not only because the prospect pool has never been bigger or better, but because business experts ranging from Warren Buffet to Sir Richard Branson to Robert Kyosaki to Donald Trump are all touting the brilliance of the business model.

In this post, I want to outline 6 tips you (as a newbie) can apply that will fast track you to success regardless of what company you're in, or what product you're promoting. So let's get right to the point:
#1. Always deliver a world-class customer experience. As a marketer, you want to get yourself out of the "transaction" mindset, and into the "experience" mindset. No one wants to feel like just another transaction. If you can provide an enjoyable presentation and dialogue, your customers (and prospects) will buy from you. In addition to that, if you provide an experience and get your prospects to like you, you'll not only get more customers but you'll increase retention of those customers. And make no mistake about it... retention is the key to residual income regardless of what product you're promoting. If you can't get people to stay on the books, you have no chance of building that passive income you joined for.
#2. Be a product of the product. You can share dozens of testimonials, but the most important testimonial is your own. People can spot a phony a mile away. And if you don't believe enough in your own product, how can you possibly get others to believe in it. My suggestion is that you own every single product your company offers so you can be a walking, talking commercial... and you don't have to point to someone else when you're sharing your products with people.
#3. Become the person you want to attract. Most distributors are always looking for the one guy or gal that will explode their business. Why don't YOU become that guy or gal? YOU be the most positive person on your team. YOU be the most productive person in your team. YOU make the most money per month. Don't look elsewhere for someone to explode your business. YOU be the one! The funny thing is when you start leading from the front, you will start attracting higher quality prospects because leaders are attracted by other leaders. And that's what you want.
#4. Empower others by leveraging development and support. Typically in traditional sales, your income and production is based on your own efforts. In Network Marketing, your income is based on the efforts of others. It's not about you doing everything. It's about you doing your part, but then having hundreds (and then thousands, and later tens of thousands) of other people doing a little. As you are sponsoring new people, always set aside some time to offer training and support. (find out more tips on how to sponsor )Your goal is to develop other people so they can do what you do. In fact, you should want to develop other people so they're actually better than you. That's how you build a secure and reliable income in your business. You won't be able to do that if you're trying to do everything and you're not empowering others to become self-sufficient.
#5. Keep it simple and fun. One of the biggest mistakes new people make is that they over complicate things. They want to study everything, and when they talk to people they think all this newly acquired knowledge will make them sound smarter. Doing this absolutely kills your business. Remember, when you're engaging prospects, they want to know if it's simple enough for them to do. If they feel overwhelmed, they might like your opportunity or product, but chances are they won't join because they feel they have to get as good as you to do well. Your goal in your business is to over-simplify everything so that anyone can feel they do it. You'll explode your business faster by keeping everything simple and duplicate.
#6. Create a winning environment. There's an old saying in Network Marketing: "Beginners look for comp plans; Veterans look for company; But professionals look for culture." Having an awesome culture ties right in with having a winning environment. Focus on cultivating a great environment (one that doesn't tolerate any negativity) and not only will you attract good people, but your current team members will always stick around.
So there you have it. Regardless of what company you're in, you can apply these tips and position yourself for success.
Jaime Soriano wrote this MLM Training article for people looking to succeed in the MLM Industry. Sadly, most distributors will never see the success they desire because they lack the marketing skills to generate 20-50 leads a day. To learn how you can generate more leads than you can even get to, visit Jaime's MLM Training.

5 Social Media Strategies for MLM Networking Marketing for Moms

Social Media for Network Marketing... Five years ago, if someone said I'd be writing about this, I wouldn't have believed it. Even though these days everyone under the sun seems to be on Facebook, this strategy of marketing is relatively new, considering network marketing has been around for nearly 100 years.

When I began in this field just seven years ago, most companies actually had policies against promoting on social media for network marketing, because it was not yet understood. Now, distributors are actually encouraged to use it for network marketing.

Years ago, my friend encouraged me to get on Facebook, and I thought, "Oh no, another inbox!" I resisted it, yet I quickly realized social media for network marketing MLM  is an excellent way to find leads, build my opt-in list,   support my team, build community, and attract more people to our business. Now I think of this as one of the best resources we have in our industry.

Here are 5 Strategies for Leveraging Social Media for Network Marketing:

Strategy #1 -- Be Social

It's called social for a reason. Just as you meet people at work, networking functions, barbeques, and your child's sporting events, social media for network marketing is about connecting with others.

Look at people's profiles and check out what pages they like, so you can find a common ground to start a conversation. Comment on and "like" other people's posts. Spend time engaging back-and-forth on conversation threads.

Participating in groups is also a wonderful strategy for utilizing social media for network marketing. You can discover groups for just about any interest in LinkedIn, Facebook, and even Twitter, and cultivate relationships with other people who are interested in a common topic. And, remember to listen! If you are doing all the talking, then you are missing out.

Strategy #2 -- Be Personal

Consider social media for network marketing just as you think of socializing in your day-to-day life. Share about yourself on a personal note and open up about things you care about. Just as it is in person, it is in social networking - If you only gab about your business, people's eyes glaze over at some point.

In my own experience, whenever I share something personal like a birthday dinner, pictures from a trip I took, or even an insight I had while exercising, those are the posts that seem to spark the most comments.

Share from an authentic place, so your audience can see "you." The more YOU comes out, the more you will draw the perfect people for you. The old saying "Stories sell, facts tell" is so true! Get personal by sharing stories, quotes of wisdom, genuine questions, and photos!

Strategy #3 -- Be Consistent

Perhaps the most critical strategy for using social media for network marketing, is to be consistent. Put in the time so you can get results and be regular about it. When you stay in people's awareness, you'll be more successful at using social media for network marketing. My own personal goal is to invest an hour each day prospecting, connecting, and conversing on the social media sites, because it makes a difference.

A good rule of thumb is the 80/20 rule. Spend 80% of your time providing value - that is what earns you the right to present your offer for the remaining 20%. Position yourself as someone who regularly provides value!

Social media for network marketing is not a tactic for overnight success. You may get quick results yet, more likely, one day out of the blue a friend will say, "I've been reading your posts all year." Next thing you know you have a new business builder in Singapore.

Strategy #4 -- Take it Offline

Social media for network marketing is excellent for expanding your reach, yet it is not meant to take the place of picking up the phone and calling your warm leads. Social media is meant to be in-addition-to. I have gotten in touch with people from my past on the social media sites, and it has been a wonderful way to reconnect.

Then, take it offline. Invite them to connect on the phone or over coffee!

Social media is also excellent for turning your cold market into a warm one. As you connect with new people by socializing on these sites you establish relationships, making the invitation to connect offline a natural next step.

By the way, don't rush to share your opportunity. Be a great listener and ask a lot of questions. You should have at least 3 conversations back and forth before you present your business or products (unless, of course, they ask you to share).

Strategy #5 -- BONUS TIP!

If you are serious about building your brand through social networking, then invest in a great quality photo of yourself. It is a great investment!

How to Organize your Email Inbox

Inbox overload.

It's a real time eater, and you only have so much time to build your business.

And if your inbox eats your time, you don't build as much business each day.

So one of the easiest ways to find more time to build your business is to cure inbox overload.

Here are three ways to help combat the overload:

1. Create filters for spam

During WWII, spam meant “specially processed American meat”, and it was shipped to overseas for use by servicemen and women, and the local population in Britain. Of course, it really amounted to food that was much less than the best available. That’s because it had to be put in a can.

SPAM today can hardly be thought of nutrition on any level. It’s the junk mail of the Internet, and if you don’t have a method for getting it out of you inbox, then you’ll never get out of it either.

Most ISPs have SPAM filters that prevent you from getting a lot of it. In other words, however much you get right now, it could be a lot worse.

But spammers are clever people, and as ISPs change their filters, so spammers change the wording of their messages to bypass them.

That means that in order to get rid this junk without having to personally wade through it all, you need to use the filter template that is provided by your email client.

In Gmail, for example, the most effective way is to filter on the basis of specific words and the various spellings. Then whenever a message that you don’t want somehow gets through, it will be deleted before you ever see it.

2. Create filters for each business function, e.g. social media, sales, marketing, articles, ideas, etc.

There will be some messages that you will want to see, and you can choose to put them in a separate folder, too.

Instead of having them deleted, you can designate which folders they will go to automatically. This can be particularly valuable if you want to read messages that are written by the same person, such as those you’d get from someone’s email campaign.

3. Set up Google Alerts

A Google Alert automatically delivers content to you based on words that you choose.

In the case of SPAM, you identified words associated with messages that you didn’t want. 

With a Google Alert, you use exactly the same principle to find what you do want, except that instead of receiving messages, you’re given URLs.

And you can have all of these go to a specific folder as well.
