Building Lists in Network Marketing

We all read about “list building,” yet no one ever seems to give step by step directions on how to build this list.

I’d like to offer suggestions on how to build several different lists for your network marketing business.

The first list I suggest you build is a customer list. Customers are the lifeline of any business. You can send customers information once a month or even once a quarter. Consider creating a customer newsletter. You can include new product information, sales item information and even information on existing products. Your customer list can include those who have ordered in the past and also those who have expressed an interest in your products but have not yet ordered.

The next list I suggest you build is a business lead list. This list should include anyone who has ever requested information about your business. I’m very careful on the amount of information I send out to these people. There are two options with this list. You can enter the names into an auto-responder and sent out information on a regular basis or you can send out personalized information a few times per year to see if they are now ready to join your business.

I work very hard on keeping personal contact with my lead list. I want to be the person they come to when they are ready to join the company. If all I’ve ever said is. “Join me,” I stand a good chance of losing them to the next person who says, “Join me.” When I take a personal interest and take the time to get to know them, I am often rewarded with those wonderful words “I’d like to join you.”

The next list to work on building is a newsletter list. These are people that are interested in what you have to say. These are people interested in the topic you are writing about. On my website, I have a subscribe button for my newsletter. The newsletter is not about my business. It’s about the topic of my website. Each newsletter is signed by me, with a link to my business. It’s a very passive way to let others know about my business and to build a relationship with those who have not yet expressed an interest in my products or business. I write this newsletter once a month. It keeps my name and my business in front of people each and every month.

A Critical Review Of Body FX Direct – Can You Really Get Rich Selling Nutritional Products?

If you’re reading this Body FX Direct review, chances are you’re looking into the company, and you’re thinking about becoming a distributor. Before you pull the trigger and join, I want to encourage you to take some time to go over this entire review so you’re better equipped to make an educated decision about the company, it’s products, and business opportunity.

Body FX Direct Review – Who Are They?

Body FX Direct is the marketing division of Body FX. They sell workout DVDs through a network marketing business model using independent distributors to promote their products. Currently, the California-based company is still in pre-launch. It’s important to note that while the company is in pre-launch, Body FX has already done millions of dollars in sales worldwide so the same risks associated with a typical start-up company aren’t the same with them. The company also sells workout DVDs and various health supplements. Unlike most network marketing companies, Body FX Direct has a company-sponsored lead generation program that enables them to give leads to distributors. Overall, the company looks pretty solid which is good if you’re seriously considering becoming a distributor.

Body FX Direct Review – How Do You Get Paid?

As far as the compensation plan goes, the company operates on a dynamically-compressed unilevel model. If you’re not sure what Dynamic Compression is, it basically means that all inactive distributors won’t count as a “level” when you get paid residual income so you can be sure to get paid on all active distributors auto-ship volume up to 9 levels. There’s also Matching Bonuses and Infinity Bonuses available in the compensation plan. There’s also immediate income available in the compensation plan through Retail Commissions and Fast Start Bonuses. The compensation plan certainly looks fair enough for the right person to make a good income. For people with a bigger network, there’s also potential to make a six-figure income.

Body FX Direct Review – Is It Solid And Should You Join?

The company certainly looks solid, and the fact that the company has already done millions in sales is testimony that the product sells in the market place. Whether or not you should join is totally up to you. If promoting health products and getting in at the ground-floor of a company excites you, then this may be the company you’re looking for. If you do get involved, my suggestion is that you learn to leverage the Internet to get leads for your business. Having sufficient leads is critical because you need leads to sponsor new people into your team. If you can position yourself to have more leads than you can deal with, you can very well be on your way to building a prosperous home business.

Using Lumpy Mail Marketing to Get Your Small Business Noticed

Are you using direct mail marketing in your business? Postcards or sales letters are the most common ways most small businesses use direct mail to market their business. Whether you are using direct mail currently or not, you might want to look at using Lumpy mail otherwise called dimensional mail to step up your marketing efforts to stand out from the crowd and get you mail opened by your prospects.

Any more, people get so much junk mail on a daily basis that both consumers and businesses open their mail over the trash can and toss the stuff that they don’t think is relevant or wanted by them. You don’t want to waste you hard earned marketing dollars by not even getting your mail opened.

Lumpy mail is a great way to help you get your mail noticed and opened right away. People can’t resist opening a package or envelope that has something thick and mysterious inside. It’s just like Christmas or a Birthday present. The most exciting part is the anticipation of trying to figure out what’s inside!

If you want to guarantee that your marketing mailer gets opened and makes an impart on your prospect, you need to be creative and use Lumpy Mail to get their attention.

So let’s talk a bit about what exactly Lumpy Mail is. Lumpy Mail is a package or envelope that has an additional object that makes the package, well exactly like the name implies, lumpy. It isn’t plain and boring like 95% of all the other mail that people see on a daily basis. Just by the lone fact that there is something Lumpy in an envelope will increase the chances of it being opened up by the recipient.

Here’s a couple of ideas of what you could do with your own business to use Lumpy Mail to get more attention and almost guarantee that your mailer gets opened up right away!

Look for simple yet attention grabbing items that you can include with your package.

A 9 x 12 envelope coming in the mail with something “lumpy” in it will stick out from everything else in the stack very easily.

Try including a toy airplane if you’re in the travel industry.

How about a sample pack of band-aids for someone in the health industry? You can even use band-aids in other industries too. I’ve seen people attach band-aids to their packages with a message of “I know your pain and we can help”. This works great in the Computer Industry too!

What about the classic box of candies? Everyone loves free food and candies or chocolates work great too.

If you are promoting a special event like a seminar or conference, you could mail a nice calendar with the dates of your event already circled so they not only get the impact of your message but also have something that they can use all year.

Lumpy mail is anything that you mail directly to a prospect or client that will stand out from everything else in a stack of mail and that they will be curious about opening. As you can see from the examples above, you just need to be creative. The creativity that goes in to your mailer will make it more interesting and increase the chances that your mailer will be opened. As with any marketing idea you use in your marketing mix, be creative and stand out from the crowd. Make a lasting impression on your prospects and you’ll see a much higher return on your advertising dollar.
