Who couldn’t use a second source of income? Whether you are saving for retirement, your dream vacation, your children’s college fund, or working hard to get out of debt, taking on another job can help. However, it can be difficult to find the time to work a second job outside of the house, around someone else’s schedule. Multi level marketing can help to solve this problem.
In multi level marketing, a company’s own customers are recruited to sell the product, such as kitchen gadgets, candles, cleaning products, or personal products such as Young Living Essential Oils. It offers the chance to work from home and set your own hours, selling a product you trust and believe in.
As with any business or job, a lot of your success depends on how hard you work! However, there are a few other things you can do to nudge the odds of success in your favor:
You should be able to tell customers and potential customers the benefits of the products offered, what exciting new products are coming soon, and what products might suit their needs.
If you don’t genuinely love (or use) what you are selling, it will easily show through when you talk to people. Choose a company with products that you have used for years and have always found satisfaction with.
You may feel like your family and friends are the perfect people to sell to, but this can get annoying fast to those around you. It can also result in few sales, if they just aren’t interested in what you are selling. As with any business, you need to find your target customer and work toward selling to them – you’ll not only have more success this way, but it will help you keep the friends you have!
We’ve all seen those makeup catalogues left in waiting rooms at doctor’s offices, and such a technique can get sales. However, don’t be afraid to leave your comfort zone and do other things to make sales and develop a customer base. Share samples, host a neighborhood party, or start a social media account praising the product (if this is allowed by the company you are working with).
Some people don’t want to be pestered when they’ve already said “no” to a salesperson, and others are grateful for the reminder about a product they were interested in but didn’t purchase. If you think the “maybe” may have changed to a “yes,” follow up with a phone call or email (you even use reminder software to make follow up especially easy).
Many people aren’t successful at multi level marketing (or any kind of business) because they give up too easily. It is going to take some time to make sales and to build a client list. If you keep at it long enough, there is a good chance that soon people will be coming to you when they are looking to get more of what you are selling.
Most everyone with a home business agrees: if you treat it like a hobby instead of a business, you will have a difficult time succeeding. Don’t just work on it when you have spare time; make time in your schedule every day or every week, and then stick to it. Also, if you have 5 or 10 hours blocked off to work, make sure that is how you spend that time – getting new leads, coming up with new marketing ideas, or out on the road selling.
Multi level marketing can be a great way to make extra money, without interfering in your life like another job outside the house would. Make sure you pick a product you are passionate and enthusiastic about and jump right in!
