Work Smarter Not Harder !

Today, Online Marketing has changed the way we sell our product or services. I am going to give you some tips to work Smarter and not Harder.

 

When you start prospecting online, you need to follow some steps to explain your product or services after building rapport with your potential customer. You are going to meet people with different backgrounds and levels of education. You are going to come in contact with people using old school marketing, where home parties, leaflets on the cars or at the mall where the norm. Nowadays you can do so much without leaving your house or wasting time doing all the presentation outside your home and I am going to share with you some tips:

  • You need to have a Fanpage if you are using Facebook platform to market your business. It is where you are going to put your business post. When you start prospecting, or advertising, without realizing it, you are going to get people that are going to check out your profile. Maximize your photos albums with some picture Before/After – some testimonials. Blog posts, quotes, etc…
  • You can boost your post from your Fanpage, that way you’ll get more people seeing your ad and get more engagement. Isn’t it better than going door to door or putting leaflets on cars windows.
  • You can do some webinars where you are going to present your business opportunity, talk about your product or service. And all that in the comfort of your home. No more going around, renting rooms or having to clean your home and prepare some appetizers to entertain your potential prospects. I don’t say it is bad, or you shouldn’t do it but you can get more people online to follow you without having to go through all of the trouble. Preparing a webinar is very time consuming if you want to have something professional. The great thing once it is done and you are happy with it, you can share the link to many people offline!!
  • It is the same thing for the Youtube videos or blogs; once you have done them, you can share to your list, to your new prospect, on multimedia,… It is out there until you remove them, so you could be at the beach, or on holiday or asleep and someone can see your content.

Content marketing represents the gap between what brands produce and what consumers actually want.” ~ Michael Brenner

Once you have all these content out and you start getting people connecting with you, you need to build relationship and then talk about Network Marketing/Affiliate Program

You can follow these 4 steps:

  • Step1: Who you are. Introduce yourself in a few lines, and point out why you started with this company and what  is your purpose and your goal.
  • Step2: What you are offering and how the product/service helps you. That is why it is important you are the product of the product.Give your personal testimonial.
  • Step3: Why they should take action. Again after building your rapport, you know their challenges so the product, training you are offering will help them.
  • Step4: How they can get your offer, that is called Call To Action. Don’t forget to put one in each post, and if possible get a funnel to gather as many email address as you can to help you build your list.

Before you send any link, always ask for their permission.

Leave me a comment, I’d love to connect with you!!

Define and Leverage your target audience

With the number of social network users worldwide at 2.34 Billion today, I am going to show you how you can leverage these statistics at your advantage to reach your target audience.

You’ve got to determine who your target audience is in order to engage with them effectively. Who will benefit your product or service ? What problem are you solving? Does it meet a specific need? Is your brand unique? You need to ask all this questions before you send your information and reach out the best audience. Once you have done that, draw your followers to a funnel to start getting your list.

1- Finding Your Ideal Customer

Imagine the perfect customer and ask these questions:

  • age group you want to target
  • specific demographicbanner-1018105_1920
  • if they have children
  • career
  • interests and hobbies
  • income level
  • specific geographical area

The better you get to know your customers, the more accurately you can serve them, help them to their needs. That way you will get free marketing because they will be your recurring customers that will share their stories. Gather enough information about them through your records; where they live, what quantity they usually purchase, what time of the day they are online, etc…

If you start a new business and don’t know who you are helping, go to Think With Google – source for insights, trends and research in digital marketing –  where you’ll get a lot of information.

2- Target the Right Media

When you have a clear picture of your ideal customer, it is easier to determine where you’ll find your prospects. Do some research to know which platform your audience would be using. For example, if you target women, 76% of women use Facebook versus 66% of men – among top 50 brands’ followers on Instagram, 53% are women. Click on the link above to see very interesting statistics that will help you gather enough information to choose the right platform for your ideal customer. The millennials now are using a lot Snapchat, consider it if you want to reach out to them. 280 Million active YouTube accounts with 54% users are men. If you are selling life insurance, twitter would be the best platform to use because it reaches an older audience .. so do your homework before you send information online because it might be a waste of time and might discourage you to stick with your business.

Consider also the way you are going to send your information, even if your customers are on social media, they use their mobile phone most of the time which means they can’t jump from one application to another one. Avoid to put links which require a different app, they might have it on their desktop but not on their android or iPhone. Use mobile-friendly platform to send your information to make sure your audience will get it.

3- Determine what your customers needs and engage with them

How your product or service can provide a solution to your audience? Is your customer a tech savvy? Is your ideal customer love traveling? Again, ask yourself all this questions to know what type of information you need to send on social media.

If your audience need to build their business online and need to get more leads, the best way to help them is to create an offer with free download in exchange of their email address or subscription on your website. You can also do a blog, a pillar content, an eBook, always ask for an email address that will help you build your list… As you know your list is your income.

Coupons and deals also attract people, so if you have a product, create a post with a price giving or “buy 2 get 1 free”. If you are targeting retired people, sell them in little quantity as they are in low-budget.

Your goal is to get your audience to stay with you, you want to convert your prospect into long-term paying customers. Engage with them all the time and make them feel special !

These are all examples but the basic idea remain:

  • find whom you want to target and serve
  • find the best ways to help them
  • engage with them and make them feel special

What do you need to start a successful business?

4 key points to get ready to start a new successful business and live your passion!!

With the start of the new year, a lot of people decide to change their lives and want to start having their own business. Between wanted to do something and achieving it, it takes a lot of work and most of the time we don’t have enough patience and give up a few month after we started.

I’m going to give you some points and advice so you can prepare yourself and follow-up your dreams !

1- Patience and be passionate !!

Don’t start a new business with the intention of being rich tomorrow.  That is usually the main problem, people join a company and they think they are going to get rich after a month.

richard-branson-follow-your-passion

Usually it starts very well because you have pestered your family and friends to buy the product or join your company and after it fades away and this is when doubt starts kicking!! You need to love what you are doing, like the product. If you believe yourself what you are doing, it will be easier for you to share the information and live your passion.

2-Build your email list

To stay in this industry you need to build your list. Bring content everyday to the platform of your choice, and don’t forget to leave a link or your website each time you are doing a video or writing a post (of course related to business). Leverage your target audience writing  blogs to attract people you want to work with, do some funnels to get email addresses.

3- Envision yourself in your dreams

Plan it, write every single idea on how you are going to develop them in a piece of paper with a yearly goal, 6 months goals, 3 months goals, monthly goals, weekly goals, daily goals… anything that will keep you focus.  Live your dream every single day! No negative self talk when there is a hiccup or a problem… Think as an experience and not a problem.

“Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life–think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success” –Swami Vivekananda

4- You have to make a decision. 

Once you know exactly which path you want to follow, just don’t stop!! Plan everything, Invest, Learn, Teach. I always say it we are not in a race, take you time to gather the right information, to know exactly which platform you want to use, don’t be all over the place. Plan plan and plan, and stick with it. Talk to your family and close friends once you have made the decision because it will impact everybody.  You might have to stop going to coffee mornings with your friends, or lunches, or you might have to spend time in front of your computer instead of going out with your family. But will it be worth it at the end???

The 5 reasons you should attend Your Company Events

Attending your Company Event is so important to build a successful business. I am going to give the reason why you shouldn’t even doubt one minute and get your tickets!!! All too often you let your fear stop you, but pushing yourself out of your comfort zones will be good for you. It will also allows you to expand your mind and learn new things.

This blog is part 6 out of 7 of the series “7 things that will make a difference in your business”

1- Great way to connect with others in your organization: you’ll get to bond with your teammates face-to-face and will get  the opportunity to meet your leaders and your corporate team. Take some nice pictures while you are there with them, it will show more credibility in your business. It is a great way to be surrounded to like-minded people and people who engage in a variety of experiences are more likely to retain positive emotions and minimize negative ones than people who have fewer experiences. The connections you’ll make with other like-minded entrepreneurs will be priceless.

2- Attend workshops and masterminds: you need to attend the sessions where you can get detailed training. Usually they are small groups and done by the leaders of the company or other big earners. You can ask some questions which is a great way to learn more and be more efficient. That way also you can get to know more your leaders and talk to them – get some ideas for your business with people with the same mindset as you. Studies have shown that you retain more knowledge when you can see and feel it

It’s in your moments of decision, that your destiny is shaped! – Tony Robbins

3- Energy boost: you’ll be excited for days because you join the events, then even more during the event and you’ll be completely uplifted when you’ll come back. You’ll want to talk about your event for days after you come home. Get some pictures, live videos during the events and share it to your team, on your profile. This will bring curiosity and boost your business. Don’t forget your passion, enthusiasm and energy are the recipe for success. This is your time to shine.

4- Get recognized for your accomplishment: if you are with the company and got to be recognized with your rank making that will bring you also great success to your business. Imagine when you’ll post your pictures on your profile, all the people that were doubting your ability to succeed will be impressed. It might stop them giving you negative comments 🙂  But if you are new and don’t know too much about the company you will get to feel the company credibility and get to meet people, leaders and tell yourself: ‘If they can do it, I can do it”

5- Collect stories: We always say that in Network Marketing you need to tell your story and share stories. When you attend an event, you have the opportunity to meet so many people around you, just like you that you’ll have a lot of stories to share from people getting results. Being around other successful people helps you to become more successful, simply through inspiration and the sharing of ideas.

Attending events is crucial to your network marketing success and I hope this blog has helped you to make the right decision to attend your next big event. There is a direct correlation between attending events and achieving success, don’t miss out !!

How to deal with prospects on the phone in Network Marketing

When you promote on multi-media with a Capture page, you should have the name, email address and phone number. This way you can ring them, it is extremely important you contact them a few days after they put their details in one of your advertisement.

Entrepreneurs often struggle and get scared when they start doing cold calls. One more time, if you want to grow as an entrepreneur, you need to put yourselves out of your comfort zone!!!

Examples of 5 questions you can ask. It will put you in control of the conversation and positions you as a leader. If you are a specialist, present yourself as such. Don’t hesitate and if needed rehearsed in front of a camera or even with your spouse/partner/friends. Always project energy and enthusiasm

  1. Where are you now?
  2. Where would you rather be?
  3. How will it feel when you get there?
  4. What has been stopping you?
  5. How serious are you?

Once on the phone, don’t be too overwhelmed, you need to keep your posture. Use their first name but never Miss or Mister, this will put you in a position of inferiority. No sale voice also, act as if you talk to someone you already know, that you understand their situations and want top help.

Don’t start saying “How are you today?” or “Are you busy?”  But “I know you are busy but I’ll be brief/ it will take only a few minutes”

entreprenuer-i-m-possibleDon’t assume anything, ask what problem they encounter and give them a solution. Try to find a way to compliment them, if they say something great about their business or even if you saw something on their Facebook profile. Boost their confidence and if you had a previous contact with them, just mention something you talked about before. So the importance to always take notes!!!!

If you need to leave a voicemail, it has to be done under 60 seconds and offer clear value otherwise they will never call you back or when they’ll see your phone number calling again, they won’t answer!

The part we all hate!!! Hostile and aggressive prospects!!

Even if you have someone on the other side of the phone very hostile, you need to keep your posture, your confidence because you know that your product/service is good. You are an expert in your domain and they most of the time don’t know much about what you are doing. You are just on the phone to help them and this situation shouldn’t discourage you, and if they don’t want you help, you know you can help others.

phoneLet the bully rant before you say anything. Silence can be just as intimidating as aggression. By using friendly strength and keeping calm, you can turn the tables. Even if it is not immediate, they might come back to you a month/3 months after.

But don’t beg prospects to join you or you will lose completely your authority figure and this prospect will be gone forever. Always be polite and try to take control of the situation. You could say :”I appreciate that this is the way you feel. Let me clarify a few thing!”

Now it is your turn to give me some of your questions or answers. I would love to hear from you. Comment below and I’ll contact you.

Why your Image is important, First impression matters!

Branding yourself is a must when you start building a business on social media. That is why your image is so important !! Companies come and go…but you are the one thing that will remain stable in the midst of change.

This blog is part 5 out of 7 of the series “7 things that will make a difference in your business”

When promoting on social media, you have to be mindful of the posts. Why?

  • In a few seconds, someone can form an impression on yourself so you want to show the best of you!!
  • Your social media is scrutinized when you are in network marketing, so don’t put any pictures that seemed great at the time but might bring you some trouble in the long term. Or say anything that you might be regretting in the future. That is the reason why I always say that you shouldn’t put any negativity in your posts.
  • Your reputation could be affected if someone share a picture or something and it is splashed everywhere in the media. That is why it is important you get your general account settings, timeline and tagging settings checked. I have my profile on public but I am the only one that can post on my timeline, or see the posts I have been tagged.

Remember, if it’s on the Internet, it could be there forever!

Why it is important to brand yourself?

Personal branding is essentially the ongoing process of establishing a prescribed image or impression in the mind of others. Your skills, your focus will allow them to clearly understand what you’re passionate about. You want your prospects to choose you as the only solution to their problems. You have to be unique and approachable to your audience to get results.

The way you talk and present yourself has a remarkable impact on the people you meet professionally and socially. This is why it is very important you brand yourself and not your company.

Branding demands commitment; commitment to continual re-invention; striking chords with people to stir their emotions; and commitment to imagination. It is easy to be cynical about such things, much harder to be successful.” – Sir Richard Branson

How to brand yourself:

  • Your image: your customers/followers need to know who you are. Put a picture on all your multi-media platform, they will recognize you when you do a video.
  • Use a blog: it is very important to do a blog, and put value on it. A few sentences, a picture, a little video… No need to do a book each time 🙂 , but be consistent.
  • Use social media: establish a presence, my advice at the start of your branding, choose ONE and be an expert. It can be Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest… Whatever you want to start with, be an expert before you want to jump on another one. You need to build relationship with your audience. Make sure your audience see you everyday; if you don’t have time to do a video, put a post, a picture, a quote, a blog post…Make yourself available for help and advice.
  • Maintain your integrity: market yourself with high standards and honesty, if you don’t know something, point your client to someone else, this way they will know your potentials and trust your judgement.
  • Body language also is important: Be yourself!!! Don’t try to impress anyone;  your followers want to be able to relate to someone like you, you might not attract everybody but you will attract the RIGHT audience for YOU.
  • Believe in yourself: You want to send the right message, if you don’t believe in yourself or the company you are representing, it will show.

I hope these helped you to understand why Attraction Marketing is very important and you need to brand yourself and not the company you are representing today.

How to develop a recruiting mindset ~ Part 2 Get a Daily Routine

When you start your day, you need to take your time in the morning to center yourself and get motivated. What I do is taking 30 min in the morning after i wake up to visualize what I want to achieve, do some meditation and concentrate on my different task I have to do that day. You can then go to the gym, or go for a run and get a good breakfast. You need energy to be able to work and get your concentration all day.

Once you have your morning ritual done, you need to focus on Income Producing Activities. That should be your main focus, which are prospecting, setting appointments, inviting, following up, doing some presentation and closing.

You goal setting + Massive Action = Results

The mistake we all do when we start with a new business, or new product, we want to know everything about it. We want to know the science behind the product, the compensation plan scrutinized, ..

Well what you need is to start making money and not putting too much energy on non productive task.

1-  Host a webinar or do a Facebook Live to bring value to your audience with new content. People want to connect with you, don’t stay behind your computer all day ! You have to remember to give at the start of the video and at the end, your call to action which could be your website with your product or your service, or a link for an ebook, ….

2- Follow up is very important by phone or email or now you can use voice messenger. Nowadays, prospects like to hear your voice and they will feel special.

Little stat: 90% of sales occurred because you followed up with someone.

Listen to the video above to get some examples on how to follow people

3- You can send automated email using aweber if you want like I do, and then from time to time send a broadcast with a new blog or video or something you want to share with your list. Make it as personal as you can.

I would be happy to hear your thoughts , leave me a comment !!

4 Sacrifices you have to make to start your business

 When you decide to start a new business, you need to make some sacrifices. Either you are already working full time and try to get your business running and quit your job, or you are a mum-at-home and try to get a business to be more independent. Whatever you are doing right now, and you decide to become your own boss, you need to change your way of living, your routine and don’t underestimate the price you would have to pay before achieving your goals.

Don’t think it in a bad way because as an entrepreneur I would encourage you to become one, as I do to my children. But you have to be aware and ready to do some sacrifices.

This blog is part 2 out of 7 of the series “7 things that will make a difference in your business”

  • Social life: If you are serious and plan to start a business, you should be prepared to sacrifice some amount of time normally spend with family and friends. Some of them will be supportive at the start but if you cancel plans to deal with business emergencies, you might find your loved one getting frustrated. So talk to your family, spouse, and close friends and reassure them that it would be for a short period of time and you are doing it for them. Don’t launch a new company during times of great stress or life adjustment because you might feel too overwhelmed… you can wait a little bit longer when you feel ready! People around you will have to understand that you have one priority at that time, and it is to launch your business  !

  • Salary: When you start a new business, you have to remember that you are not going to become rich the next day you leave your job… So think about your financial situation before you take drastic engagement. Talk to your partner/spouse or parents and ask them if they would be ready to help you out for a few months if you don’t have any savings… or if you have some, make sure you give yourself enough time. You need to invest in your education, in your product, and the start up of a company is usually quite expensive. As an entrepreneur myself with my own skincare brand, i needed to pay for the stock, labelling, e-commerce platform, time spent to build the website, etc… I think you see the point. If you’re not prepared to sacrifice your salary for at least a few years, then entrepreneurship may not be for you. As soon as you’ll get some profits, you will need to reinvest in your business to continue growing..
  • Balance: There will be many times when you feel like you are sacrificing your mental sanity. People will call you crazy, obsessed, etc.. and you might lose some friends or family members in the process. Stay away from toxic people and stay focus. But you need some balance in your life, you can’t work 24/7 or you’ll lose your mind, your health. Take some time to go to the gym, do some meditation, eat healthy and take some vitamins. Being on caffeine boost is not going to help. As an entrepreneur you’ll think about your business all the time, you won’t have a day off where you can chill out and forget about everything. While all those long hours are crucial, it’s very common for a start-up entrepreneur to suffer health issue due to sleep deprivation and a lack of medical attention.

“The consistency in your person from home to work is vitally important so that you are in total balance at all times. Being out of balance means that your true self will start to be confused with what you pretend to be.” Catherine Pulsifer 

  • Limitation: If you are a person who love being in control with everything, you might find some challenges to grow your business; when you have an idea and want to launch something big, you can’t keep everything to yourself and work on your own. You need to get help from others or you’ll lose your mind. Even the hardest workers can only accomplish so many tasks in a single day. Try to surround yourself with like-minded people, share your ideas and they’ll help you if they can or they’ll show you the way to improve and get better. Allocate some tasks to someone more qualified than you so you won’t waste time and get frustrated in the process.

There is a time to make sacrifices and a time to reap the harvest of your labour, so don’t give up on your dreams because hard work pays off.

Hope this will help you stay focus in your business, if you have any other tips, would love to hear. Leave me a comment!
