Using Packet Inserts For Marketing And Getting New Sales

If you’re a business owner who doesn’t know how to increase your sales and profits, then I think you will benefit from today’s article. There are all kinds of ways to earn money in your business, but you should know that only a handful of these strategies will produce the most response in your business.

One of the strategies that you will want to employ is the use of internet marketing. The internet is the best thing since sliced bread, and if you want to get a lot more customers for free, I think you should take advantage of this amazing opportunity. When selling on the internet, the first thing you need to do is to set up an automated system.

The best thing that you can do for yourself is to start an online newsletter. An online newsletter can be run via software from companies like Aweber and Getresponse. Last time I checked Aweber has a 30-day trial of their service for only $1. This is a great deal since they give you a lot of tools to use in your business, and they also have customizable web form templates that you can put into use.

Internet marketing needs to be one of your main ways to get new customers. Without it, you’re missing out on a ton of profits, and you’re stuck with generating leads that costs way more than you can bargain for. Let’s take a look at another strategy that you can use to make more money in your business.

- Package inserts

What is a package insert? Well it is exactly the way that it sounds. A package insert is something that you include in the package that you mail out to customers. Usually, the best kind of package insert is another sales letter. With another sales letter, you can upsell these people for free, and make more money just off of a simple letter alone.

Is there anything in your business that you can use to include as a package insert? Surely there’s something that you can use. If you are totally out of ideas, then the basic thing that you can do is to include a “free report” of some sort. Your free report should include some helpful tips – but the main purpose of it is to sell more of your products and services.

A free report is easy to make. You can make it about 5-pages long, and these 5 pages should be something that is of high quality. Inside of your free report, include tips and techniques about how to further solve their problem, or that helps them to achieve a goal that they have.

No matter how you deliver your free report, be sure to allude to one of your related products and services. Give them something like a “one time offer”, and offer a discounted version of the product – only if they act by a certain date. This is a great way to include a spur of new sales immediately.

Both of these techniques are really great for making money in your small business, and they are something that you should put to use immediately. This is the fastest way to turn your business around, and to start earning more profits sooner rather than later.

Good luck with using these tips to make more money in your business.

Times Have Changed For Network Marketing – 5 Tips to Ease the Pain

Are you are a network marketer who is failing miserably and considering quitting because the methods you are using are not yielding any results? Or maybe you already have quit but the dream in your heart of having both time and money just won’t die.

Does this story sound familiar to you? A man is introduced to network marketing by his high school buddy who he just heard from out of the blue. We will call that man Bob. Bob immediately falls in love with the entire concept of network marketing: a lifestyle with both time and money and the idea of helping others be successful along the way. Bob has a very big dream in his heart. He wants to be home to raise his children himself and make enough money to allow his wife to quit her draining job. Bob has a very strong work ethic and he follows all directions from his upline. He and his wife make a list of 100 people. They are so excited to be able to help so many people. The upline sponsor helps Bob to tell all his friends and family but what’s this? They aren’t excited? They aren’t blown away? They aren’t interested in this amazing opportunity? The upline says not to fear because there is a rule. It’s called the three foot rule. All we have to do is tell anyone who comes within three feet of us about our amazing opportunity. Bob is great at this rule because he loves to talk and meet new people. The only problem is most of the people within three feet of Bob feel a little uncomfortable and don’t want to talk business with a complete stranger. All along the way there are weekly meetings held 30-60 miles from Bob’s home. Bob always attends and his wife attends when they can get a babysitter. There are sacrifices that have to be made but it’s okay because it is for the dream Bob has in his heart. Bob is able to sponsor people but they leave as quickly as they come in. His wife, now a stay-at-home wife and mother of 3, is beginning to wonder if ultimate success is really possible. Bob refuses to quit. He is not a quitter. He says to his wife, “You only fail when you quit.”

Can you relate to this scenario? It has been an industry standard to make the famous list or tell anyone with a pulse about your amazing opportunity. This can lead to uncomfortable and frustrating situations. However, you can breath a sigh of relief because there is a new way, a better way.

The internet has made this new way of marketing possible. You no longer market your opportunity because people do not like to be sold. You market yourself because people follow leaders not business opportunities. It’s now easier than ever to reach a massive amount of people at a click of a button. You can join social communities set up specifically to network and make friends. You can post videos on youtube. You can create your own web page, post blogs and drive traffic directly to you.

The options for promoting yourself are limitless and the biggest bonus is that you are leveraging your time. You might be thinking that you don’t have the computer skills to do any of that. The great news is that there are people out there that can teach you all you need to know to get started and it is usually extremely cost effective or free. The times are changing. There is no longer a need to make a list, enforce the three foot rule or attend weekly hotel meetings. That is what some might consider “old school” methods in our modern age of technology. We are in a new era thanks to the internet.

So once you are ready to turn your network marketing business around, what is the first step? Here are 5 simple ways to help you ease the pain of change:

1) Become an expert at being you. Many companies are big on duplication. People do follow people but it’s important to be true to yourself. Everyone has something unique to offer to this world and this industry. Don’t get caught up on trying to be just like your upline. Which leads me to the next important step.

2) Educate yourself. Take time to read self-improvement books every day. Incorporate this as part of your routine. You will soon develop the skills to become a leader in the industry. Also educate yourself on the skills and techniques that are necessary to become efficient at internet marketing. Technology is now the cornerstone of network marketing.

3) Embrace technology. There are many ways to market yourself on the internet. It can be overwhelming. Find a leader that will train you and guide you in the right direction. You can work on one method at a time and soon find your niche.

4) Apply the new techniques you are learning during early mornings and evenings when you are unable to do your normal sales producing tasks. Don’t spend valuable daylight hours doing computer work or research. Continue with what has previously been working for you but expand your knowledge and your skills during down time. That is a mistake easily made because the internet is so vast you can literally spend hours on one thing.

5) Be a member of a team that supports your desires for building an on-line business. There are many great network marketing teams that are building successful organizations. If you are currently on a team that does not promote new school techniques, do your research. Consider what is most important to you in your network marketing career. Find a team that excels in the way you want to build your business.

If you have a heart for network marketing but you are tired and frustrated, don’t give up. I was reminded about not giving up while watching the Olympics. Shawn Johnson was receiving her gold medal for her routine on the balance beam. One of the announcers asked Tim Dagget, a gymnastic gold medalist in the 1984 Olympics, “What is going through your mind when you are getting your gold medal?” Tim’s reply was, “You think about all the times when it would have been okay to quit but you just didn’t give up on your dreams.”

Network Marketing Through Direct Sales

Looking for a solid career to start from home? Network Marketing is a great way to change your profession and create a great stream of income for you and your family. Probably the biggest question is what do I market and what products or services are available in the internet marketplace. This article will touch upon the power of direct sales to move your business forward.

How do you find your niche?

Many Entrepreneurs look to Network Marketing to help them get a product they have created to the marketplace to gain access to potential customers. However, what if you do not have a product of your own to sell, what do you do to tap into this lucrative business model.

The first step is to sit down and start the research process. With the advent of the Internet almost anyone in the world can research companies looking to help with the selling process. Many marketers act as independent contractors and run their own business, many from home, to sell products. Their income can be derived from commissions on product sales and residual income from their downline or team members. Commissions, for non multi level marketing efforts, are usually the greatest source of income. Commissions will vary with distributors, however it is not unheard of to make anywhere from 10% – 50% on the product being sold.

Residual income can become a great source of additional funds for the network marketer. Essentially residual income comes from people who have purchased your product and depending on the product you are selling will be a team member. These members form a downline of recruits who will provide income to you for their selling efforts.

Direct Sales

Essentially the scenario presented here represents the direct sales aspect of Network Marketing. Direct sales efforts depend upon commissions to be the majority of your income. Multi Level Marketing or “MLM” depends upon your ability to recruit people to sell the product you are representing; this discussion will be for another article.

Both direct sales and Multi Level Marketing are viable ways to earn a legitimate income. My opinion is that direct sales are a better and more logical approach to earning a respectable income from home. There are a myriad of services and products you can represent. It took me close to five months of research to locate a product that I was comfortable with and a company I trusted and respected. One huge advantage of pursuing direct sales as a career is the ability to build personal relationships in your customer base. Unlike many retailers, direct marketers build trust and loyalty with their customers and team members who can only enhance you ability to build your business. Clients, who feel a bond with you and your product, even though something cheaper and flashier may come along, will reward you and your efforts over the long term.

In conclusion, depend upon your gut instinct and pursue the opportunity that excites you and allows you to enhance your life. Do not let anyone bog you down with negative advice or opinions. Stay the course and accept the alternative way of creating wealth to the outdated corporate structure.
