Network Marketing Tip: Are Home Parties Even Worth It?

Home Party

Are Home Parties still worth it?  Still necessary?

I have 8 plus years experience in the industry and have some thoughts about this.  With the age of the internet tools we have available today and all the ways there are to connect with social media, I am hearing more and more often that home parties aren’t worth it.   Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the tools we have available on the internet and I have sponsored over 70 people in the last year from social media connections.  And I also love hosting and attending home parties.  Home parties are still a GREAT TOOL in the tool box for network marketing.

You might hear an internet marketer say you can build your network marketing business all online.  And you can, but will YOU?  Building ALL online is done successfully by very few people.  And if you talk to almost every 6 figure and 7 figure income earner that exists today, we will tell you that our success comes from a combination of offline (one and ones, home parties, events) and online (facebook, webinars, linked in…).  There are many top earners today that have achieved their success strictly through offline activities, but the world has changed and we do have these incredible online tools available and it does make sense to learn these new skills. I am just saying don’t throw a proven technique out because it seems old school.

Why are Home Parties still effective?

Is it worth it?

I believe Home Parties/Home Business Reviews are still very effective especially when you are just getting your business started and/or you want to jumpstart your business.  And this is true for most of your team too.  Social media is just a way to connect with people, often we still need to pick up the phone and talk to someone if it is someone we are really going to build a partnership with.   One of the biggest reasons people stay in their network marketing business is because of the community we create and home parties are one of the very best ways to stay in touch, to be in community and to get to know your team and prospects.  It is very hard to create online what happens at a home party.

I look forward to connecting with you.  And remember if you feel yourself resisting that you need this, it may be exactly what you need.  Our biggest resistance is our biggest paycheck.  I will give you tips on when to host a home party and how to host it – believe me there are lots of ways to make the home business review the most effective tool you can offer for you and your team.

Network Marketing Tips: How To Get More Customers

Network Marketing Tips…

Wouldn’t it be great to know how to get more customers?

Here is a question.  What if you could show and tell your prospective customers how to use your products and what you like about them?  What if there was a way to get your passion across in a duplicatable way – there is. I know videos are a great way to set you apart from the pack. They aren’t always easy to get done and lots of things get in the way but it is so true that the more you do, the easier it becomes. Create a video that shows your prospects how to use your products – whatever that might be – whether it is a health and nutritional product, or a body wrap or a legal service.

You could create a video that highlights the main products and explains when and where they would use it.  This short video is a quick example that I created for my company’s product line.  You get the idea.  It doesn’t have to go into all the ingredients and the features.  You will convert more prospects into customers because people feel like they know you. Like they have met you via the video.

Create a video to share how and when you use your  products.

How to get more customers …. it’s all about being personal

Just a quick overview with some of the things that you really like about product X.  Tell your story.  Telling a story will always make your videos more interesting and personal.  And it will be easier for you to create them!  And remember when you are creating a video – you are talking to ONE person.  Make it friendly and accessible.  Don’t think about the thousands that might see it.  Think about your neighbor across the street – the one you really like that is the perfect customer for your product or service.  And above all – don’t try to be perfect.  If you do, it may not ever get done.  Just start….  It is our quirks that make us interesting anyway.  All you have to be is YOU on camera. Make sure you smile more than usual and pump up the energy too.  The camera responds well to movement and passion in your voice.  I know I need to learn to relax more and smile more, too in front of the camera. All a work in progress!

Once you have this video, then you can start sharing it online.  You will have it to send out in emails when prospects inquire.  You can post it on Facebook and in Facebook groups.  You can write a blog about it.  You can publish it on Youtube.  Videos are so multi-purpose.  And they last.  You can use them over and over again.  And people love seeing and hearing you share what and why you love your products.  And I would expect that you would be one step closer to figuring out how to get more customers.

Network Marketing Tips:  Creating a video on how to join your MLM Business

It should be short and sweet, personable, an easy process and most of all, help lead them to a decision. We all want a lot of customers right?  Not everybody is a business builder and we so appreciate our customers too! A video like this will also attract the business builder because they will see that you are in business and that you mean business. You are taking the time to do something that most people don’t do. And in the world of social media and the internet – videos are definitely winning. The more videos you have out there, the more people will find you and the more you will dominate the space you are in. The power of video is it is almost like you are there in person with them. It is SO much more personal. It reassures people that you are real.

A lot of us have fears and blocks about the camera and creating videos.  Sometimes we get stuck as soon as the camera is on us.  I know I was like that and can still need to run around the block a couple of times after a video session.  I have gotten much better though than I used to be – it takes practice.  That old saying about practice makes perfect.  It’s true but we don’t need to be perfect.  We just need to be better.  I remember reading a book called “The Purple Cow”, by Seth Godin.  I read that book when I first got into the network marketing industry and the message was because of all the advertising we see on a daily basis, that you needed to be a purple cow to stand out and be seen.  Videos will set you apart from what a lot of people are doing to build their network marketing business.  This is just one example of a quick and easy one that everyone can do.  Another network marketing tip:  if it is easy and duplicatable, then your team will grow faster.
