Be A Part Of The Big Boom With MLM Dream Maker!….Franchises vs “The People’s” Franchise.

 

Network Marketing was never meant to be easy or a free ride. Just like any business you must be prepared to invest time and dollars. Too many people ‘assume’ that the Network Marketing company should pay for your conference expenses and that is simply not the case. YOU would not expect if you bought a Cibo Coffee shop franchise that the Franchisor would pay for your education on how to run the cafe, industry trends, give you free stock to give to your customers to try or your annual holidays.

Investing, as a distributor, into a Network Marketing company is only similar to “traditional business’  in the way that YOU buy it, You own it.  This is where the similarities end.  How ever, even these similarities are vast. For example, Network Marketing / Home Based Business start up costs are less than your pizza and pay TV movie night in, where as your little cafe option may set you back somewhere around a quarter of a million dollars!

Perhaps it is the fact that the start up cost of a Network Marketing business are so minimal that people do not appreciate their investment, nor do they take the business opportunity seriously….(*sigh*)…wasted opportunities…..there is nothing worse.

Are you getting my point?….Keep reading…

Our Australian National conference was held in Melbourne, Victoria a couple of weeks ago. Distributors and guests arrived full of enthusiasm and departed full of motivation and confirmation, yet again, that they had made the best life decision of their life in this moment.

Excerpts from “The People’s Franchise” by John Milton Fogg
In the 1960’s franchises were considered a scam. Congress was even trying to outlaw them. Today franchises are responsible for more than forty percent of all the retail goods and services we buy and sell in the United States alone – over one trillion dollars!

About one third of all franchises fail, another third break even and one third makes a profit. Franchise fees range between $1000 to $500,000 or more. Then you have to pay for the building, equipment, initial inventory, etc. – all of which can run into the millions. Plus most franchise companies take a percentage of your sales, not just profits, but sales as their royalty commission.

There is a way to have the LOW TO NO RISK BENEFITS of a proven, DUPLICATABLE BUSINESS system like franchising and still enjoy the RICH REWARDS of a ground floor opportunity.
The next best thing is the “PEOPLES FRANCHISE”…..”NETWORK MARKETING!”
NETWORK MARKETING has taken franchising and has made some remarkable improvements to it. Such as:

* Low capital investment – little to no risk.
* The benefits and tax advantages of a home-based business, one of the last forms of tax relief available.
* No employees – you are in control. You are the CEO of your own business. Unlike most entrepreneurs, your business does not own you! You are truly in control of your work – and your life.
* More choices. Anyone who is a network marketer is a volunteer. You don’t “have to” do anything. You are free to work the days and hours you want, where you want, doing what you want and you are free to choose the people with whom you work. There’s none of the all-consuming demands of a seven-day-work-week and a 15-hour-a-day retail operation.
* You’re in business for yourself but never by yourself. Lots of support to help you succeed.
* No franchise fee to pay to the company, no huge start-up or overhead costs, no restrictions on marketing territory – you can travel the world and take your business with you.
* You have the ability to offer the opportunity to build a successful business to others in partnership with you! It is not only wonderful to have your dreams come true but it is really special to be able to help others achieve their dreams.
* You get to leverage your time, talent and energy by earning commissions from sales made by those you introduce the business to who decide to join you. You earn income from the efforts of others: in time, tens, hundreds, even thousands of others.
* It works so well because you don’t have to be some high-performance sales superstar. It’s based on a lot of people doing a little bit each.

Network Marketing is not a get quick rich scheme, a pyramid scheme or an easy ride. It requires a bit of time and effort if you really want to make some extraordinary income. Look at it like this, generally if an opportunity is too good to be true, it usually is.

Internet Marketing and the power of Face book for lead generation.

Internet marketing through the use of Face Book has become a somewhat global trend and is an excellent tool to use to add value to your network marketing business. However, in saying that, nothing beats face to face meetings, three way calls and personal communication. Internet marketing opens the door to millions of leads and possibilities….if you know how to use the right language and how to build rapport.

Internet Marketing strategies using Face Book by Kali Holmes.

Kali Holmes’s suggestions for Face Book Internet marketing:
1. Set up a Face Book business fan page and make sure that this page is interactive and always the topics posted are relatable to your primary business that the page is centered around. (If you are unsure how to set up a fan page then please shoot me an email and I will gladly help – kali@kalinutritious.com)

2. Build rapport with your new fans by acknowledging them liking your page. You can do this by sending them a personal thank you message or add a comment to their wall. This shows you appreciate THEM (the new fan) considering what you have to offer and for their support.
3. Offer something of value. Be it a special product offer, updated information on news and events in your business, your advice when they ask you – simply because you care and do not expect anything in return.
4. Use of pictures. Most people are visual, so by providing appropriate images on the top image of your timeline/profile picture you will instantly give a certain impression when people come across your page. Photo albums are powerful to create on your page as well. Keep pictures current and up to date showing your business activity. This may be acknowledging achievements in your team, sales from new customers, photo’s of new team members, recent event pictures. Your aim with photos and images is to generate visual interest and then people tend to want to read a bit more to find out what the business is about.
5. Interaction. You want to create interaction with your fans, so when writing posts, try to ask questions, create topics for discussion and reply or like their reply to your posts. This once again is all part of building the relationship, trust and rapport with your new fan.
Internet Marketing is extremely valuable for lead generation and Face Book is just one example of how to use internet marketing to build up your leads for your network marketing business. Don’t make it your primary focus, but I will stress that it is extremely important today to have a cyber presence. So go on and shoot me an email when you have your new fan page up and running, I’m only too happy to support you with a “like!”
