Network Marketing – Being Unique Instead of Competing

Today more than ever before there is quite a bit of competition in network marketing. According to the latest figures from the Direct Sales Association, there are over 15 million people involved in network marketing. That’s a lot of competition.

What I find amazing is that day after day I continue to find people who have never made a purchase from a network marketing consultant. So, maybe the competition is not as stiff as you thought it was?

My suggestion is to stop competing and instead become unique. I’ll share a story. Last week a woman emailed me. She wanted information. She told me right up front she was talking to someone else also. This other person lived locally. While I sent a few emails back and forth with her, I knew I could not compete. The new recruit wanted to work with someone local. I could’ve tried to convince her otherwise, but why? Instead I invested my time being unique and doing what I do best, which is sharing my words with others. Wouldn’t you know it, along came an email from someone who liked my words and was interested in joining. That’s where I invested my time.

Very often I see classified ads that are just one ad after the other. There is nothing special or unique about these ads. Every person is competing with every other person there. Try something different. Try being the unique person. Instead of the same headlines as everyone else, try a headline that offers a free eBook or free report. You can easily find these online. Sometimes these reports or ebooks will cost you $5 or so. Just think, for a $5 investment you can start saying “contact me for a free ebook.” You are no longer competing with every other ad out there as I almost never see offers for free reports or free ebooks.

Things You Need to Know About Email Marketing

Electronic mail marketing or Email marketing for short is the usage of email to promote and endorse your business activities through emailing interested customers about the products or services that you selling. One of the significant characteristics to endorse a business is the marketing and advertising. Email marketing can be done through a direct promotional email to potential customers to easily convince them to purchase the goods or services that you are selling on a first time. Thus, it can be designed to help build a strong relationship with customers and promote loyalty by using coupons or freebies.

Email marketing is somehow the same with direct advertisements, catalogues and print newsletters sent to you via snail mail. It is similar when you are taking an advertisement from a newspaper or magazine. On the other, there may be some who do not want to receive mails, which they think, are unsolicited. These unsolicited emails are viewed as ‘spam’ mails. When your company is reported as sending ‘spam’ mails to people, then you could lose your access to your account and most probably your web site will be shut down. In some countries, you could be actually being considered as a criminal. That is why there is a need for you to know your potential and interested customers, and ask permission to them before sending emails. This can be easily done by just adding checkbox to your web site and let your customers checked it if they want future mailings.

Email marketing has been increasingly used as a method of communication. It is cheaper than any other forms marketing style. Thus, it allows you to directly access and communicate with your customers rather than the customers run after you. When it is done properly, it can be a successful method for you to market your business. You just need to make it straight to the point and very detailed to attract more customers to read and respond to it. Once your customers respond to it, take advantage of the information they have given to you and analyze it. Make sure that before you send the information to them, your address lists are permission based.

There are three types of email marketing: direct email, retention email and advertising in other people’s emails.

Direct emails are emails that have promotional messages that encourage the potential customers to purchase emails by visiting your web sites. These include coupon, freebies and other promotional item that may attract more customers. These promotional items are sent to the list of customers that are legally collected from another company that you are partners with.

Retention emails are emails that are sent to existing customers to retain them as customers. They take in the form of newsletters, advertisements, and other promotional items. It should be more or less entertaining since the content of the emails are sales messages.

Advertising in other people’s emails is a method of piggybacking. This works by paying others to work as your partner company to attach your advertisements in their emails and send to their subscribers. There are places that allow you to so this for free such as email newsletters.
