Do you wonder how you’re going to make you USANA business a success? Do you think all the great ideas have been taken already? Get fired up for network marketing with some great ideas on where to find inspiration:
Talk to other Associates: Many of our USANA Associates get together to share tips and ideas for network marketing. This can be a great way to get to know like-minded people who can give you the inside scoop on what’s working and what isn’t.
To find out what’s going on with Associate activities, you could talk to your uplines/downlines or USANA staff. Most of the time, Associates have their own training websites, such as USANA Sydney Associate Events and Super Success Saturday New Zealand. Visit such websites regularly to keep track of any meetings and activities in your area.
Attend USANA events: USANA corporate organise all kinds of events and activities, and you will hear from those successful USANA Associates as well as guest speakers from different walks of life. The Women In Business 2011 tour that (link to the wrap-up blog) finished just a couple of weeks ago is a good example. We received feedback from attendees on how inspiring the event was. You can connect with us on USANA Australia New Zealand Facebook page and keep an eye out for upcoming corporate activities and events.
Read network marketing blogs: There are lots of people online making an impressive income from network marketing, who blog about their ideas and techniques. Blogs from successful USANA Associates, Collette Larsen and Zachary Ross are an excellent example. Also, Jennifer Fong’s blogs deliver good tips on how to use Social Media to help with your direct selling business. Often, network-marketing blogs have more up-to-date info and innovative techniques than books.
Even if the blogger is selling products that have nothing to do with USANA, like vacuum cleaners or pet shampoos, you can adapt their techniques to suit your own business.
Appeal to the five senses: Think of ways to market your products to all of the five senses – how do you get a client to look, smell, feel, taste and hear a product demonstration? Create a more involved and interactive presentation to win new clients.
Go with what works: Remember, the tried and tested methods have been used for years because they’re … tried and tested. You don’t have to stress yourself out trying to think up new and innovative ideas all the time – sometimes the best thing you can do is exactly what everyone else has done.
Go with your passion: Clients respond to an Associate who is clearly passionate about the products, so focus on the clients and product lines that most gel with your passions. For example, if you’re a top athlete, focus on ideas to target this market, rather than trying to appeal to stay-at-home mums.
Read marketing books: Type in “network marketing” in your library search engine and you’ll find hundreds of books on how to sell. Choose a few you like the look of and start reading. Keep a pen and paper nearby to jot down ideas. Internet is another good resource for articles and information on network marketing.
