The thing is you MUST promote in order to create a profitable business. But guess what?!?! There are simple ways to share your opportunities without sounding like a broken record!
So, if you don’t wanna be that sleepy car salesman I’ve got 10 tips on how to share genuinely so that you build relationships, lasting friendships, and long term customers!
You can NOT promote something you do not believe in and you can not promote something you don’t use. If you are talking about a product you are not 100% in love with people will see through you. When they see through you they will not buy from you.
When a friend goes to Starbucks and LOVES their new holiday peppermint latte they share their experience with you. “OMGosh it was like the most delicious thing i’ve ever had, It was hot but cool because of the peppermint, it made my insides feel like Christmas, and it put me in such an awesome mood for the rest of the day!!!”
You can tell that your friend loved the new Starbucks drink and chances are the next time you go you will be ordering one because you have GOT to experience what she was talking about! This is the same with your product. If you can’t talk this excitedly about what it is you have for sale you will not be able to convince people the product is worth purchasing and you will not be able to make the income you desire.
SERIOUSLY JUST DON’T DO IT! Theres not a single person on this planet exactly like you even if they have products like yours. By trying to measure your progress to someone else will only hold you back. If your upline, your business coach, your friend/family member is ahead of your in business or financially you can use their placements for encouragement but never compare your successes to theirs.
Don’t be a dill weed to others in business either. As in, done bad mouth your competition because it makes you look weak and jealous and thats not who others want to work with. Rather, encourage others around you and I promise you will see growth.
As social media is the BEST way to share its also the perfect place to talk with your audience. When someone has a particular problem that you have a solution to RESIST the urge to post your link and say “check out my website for help!” **IIIICCCCCCKKKKKK**
Instead… when someone shares their problem (that you have a solution to) genuinely show concern, ask questions, get to know the root of the problem before EVER sharing your product. A person who feels as though you care about them more than your bottom line is a customer for life!
Now don’t misunderstand me, I’m not saying give away everything and the kitchen sink. But share your knowledge with others.
If you are the master of essential oils share the many uses of them with your audience, if you are the master of eating clean share some simple snack options to help curb cravings, if you are the master of lipstick colors share when to wear red, you get the idea. You are only going to help enhance the confidence your audience has for you and your products by continually offering help.
This is something I shouldn’t have to explain but I will anyway. Before you EVER promote yourself or your product think about how you are going to share, ask yourself if you sound like and icky car salesman, and put yourself in your audiences shoes-will what your saying come off pushy or annoying?
Share with your audience the way you’d like info/products presented to you 😉
