To keep thriving you must retain your customers and also grow your customer base. There are many ways to find potential customers. One that is often overlooked is asking your happy customers for referrals!
1. Ask to Host a Party/Online Party
Parties are great way to introduce your business to many people at once. Incentivize your customer by offering a great deal for hosting. One example is offering $100 worth of products for free when a customer hosts and has a 10 guests attend the party.
2. Ask For A Referral
It doesn't have to be a very big scenario. Just ask your customer if she knows three people who could use your product, service, opportunity. At parties, when you're taking orders, this is a good time to ask. Also offer the guest if they would like to to host their own party as well and earn $100 in products themselves (or whatever incentive you offer).
3. As Your Customer To Post For You
If you're social media friends with your customer, ask her to make a quick post for you and tag you in it. An example would be something like, "I love my new anti-aging skincare set. I can see the wrinkles disappearing already! Thanks so much, Shizuka!" See how a product was not specifically named? This will peak curiosity and intrigue. People will ask your customer what she is using. Those you ask are now your leads. Qualified leads too as they want the same skincare as your customer.
4. Ask If They've Ever Had a Side Hustle
Something that is often missed is offering the opportunity. I think for whatever reason, mentally it's easier to seek customers than teammates. We get shy about asking if they would like to join the business. Well, just ask you would ask for sales referrals, ask if they or someone they know would like to make extra money on the side. Also, biggest takeaway, ask your customers if THEY would like to join the business. Not just ask for people they know who would like to join the business. Think about it! They're already familiar with the brand as your customer, they're familiar with the product/service, and they're happy customers! They make the best teammates!
One more thing. If asking to start a business is too intimidating , or feels out of your league as you're just starting yourself, ask if they've ever had a "side hustle." This sounds less intimidating and more relatable for most. When you hear "side hustle," you immediately think in a more traditional sense, like getting a second job working part time, or more commonly nowadays working Lyft, Uber, Instacart, running laundry for Rinse, or delivering food for Door Dash. These examples are even better because you get paid per job you take. In a sense, your network marketing business is the same because it's commission based and you earn per sale and you're independently contracted. It's pretty much the same except your business offers additional incentives. For instance, my company Forever Living offers major discounts/commissions on products, overrides from your team, rewards, bonus checks, and car incentives. Try getting all that from Door Dash!
