So many people have been effected hard by the recent recession, and are looking for other ways to create an additional income stream. This has made many people very susceptible to scams and “get rich quick” schemes. Sorry to say, people are not the only ones being targeted by scams — some people have started to take advantage of businesses' good names for their own advantage with the current Melaleuca Scam.
Let me be frank, there is no Melaleuca Scam.
I am not affiliated with Melaleuca in anyway, but I have done some research. It really is a magnificent company. Their goal is to provide first-rate products that have less of an effect on the environment than their competitors. Their products cover a wide range, from household items to personal care, and all are made to be safer than their commercial counterparts. I want to set the record straight and inform you that there is not a Melaleuca scam.
Melaleuca Scam – The Business Model
Melaleuca uses a different marketing methodology than other companies. Many companies have used this strategy with great success. MLM offers quite a few advantages over established marketing techniques; however, it also requires an unique approach to be effective. Multilevel marketing encourages “word of mouth” advertising, and allows for much lower overhead costs. This approach of advertising doesn't use high-priced air-time on TV or radio, and, instead, relies on the companys' reps to produce prospects and close sales.
Melaleuca Scam – What Is Lacking?
Melaleuca, as many other network marketing companies, do lack in one area. The company teaches little or no training on how to market their products and business opportunity on the internet. This has led to anger and frustration from some of its sales representatives, as they have received no instruction. This, indeed, is not the distributors' fault.
Melaleuca Scam? No way!
Many individuals are born with selling-skills, and need minimal help to build their own thriving business selling Melaleuca's products. It isn't because they are smarter than everyone else, or that they have thousands of individuals in their warm market list. Of course, these traits are beneficial, but the truly flourishing entrepreneurs have used various conventional techniques to reach their success, techniques that can be learned and applied by anyone.
Melaleuca Scam – Hardly
Even the highly skilled salespeople don't know everything about sales, no one does. New technology is constantly presenting innovative techniques and venues for producing sales, which means there is always more to learn. With proper training, most people can take advantage of these advances to improve their sales, increase their audience, and put more money in their pocket.
Melaleuca Scam – What Is Need To Succeed Online?
Think about it like this. There are thousands of Reps in this company. If all of the reps are promoting the same website, what makes you different? What makes you stand out among everyone else? NOTHING! You need to make it clear that people would be better joining you, rather than someone else. So, when you are online, you need to be different from all of the other reps out there, you need to stand out and shine on the internet. When you stand out, people will take notice and if they like what they see, people will join you over anyone else.
I have had people tell me that when they do decide to join my primary business, they want to join with me and only me. (do you know how great that is to hear by the way? : ) Why? Because I stand out by caring about peoples success. I don't just ask someone to enroll in my business and I never speak to them again. I HELP PEOPLE, even if they are not in my company!
How To Eliminate 90% Of Your Prospecting…
Lets face it, prospecting is not fun all of the time and if you do it wrong it can suck the life out of you.
I know this very well. I used to cold call leads that cost about $5 per lead (OUCH), only to spend the day getting hung up on, getting yelled at, and leaving voicemails.
This was me after the day was over:
99.9% of network marketers are told prospecting is necessary.
If you want to reduce your prospecting by 90%, then you must do what I talk about in this video. If you need help setting this up, leave a comment and I will help you out.
Learn how you can get people to WATCH your business opportunity presentation BEFORE you even talk to them!
**In the beginning of this video I mention eliminate 90% of your sponsoring, I MEAN PROSPECTING! – Sorry about that!
My #1 Strategy I implement in my business is blogging. You can learn more about blogging, here:
BUILD YOUR BLOG & BRAND NOW
FINALLY an 'All-in-1' Blog Bundle to get a PRO Self-Hosted Wordpress Blog Online in 1 Click, AND Learn from a 7-Figure Blogger
When you generate leads yourself, they are much more targeted to what you are selling.
What you need to do is find where your ideal audience hangs out and educate them on your products.
So instead of posting status on Facebook that looks like this…
I mean seriously….you have NO idea who this guy is….would you really join him?
Now, compare that to this…. I created a blog post (which you are reading right now).
I am educated you on how to market, what is the guy above doing to help you? Nothing.
All he wants is a sale.
What do I want? I want you to succeed.
Having a blog like this is a great way to build the rapport with people that you have never met.
If you like what you are reading in this post, then if you are curious, you can learn more about me by going to the About Kim tab or the Awards and Testimony tab.
People only buy from people they know, like, and trust.
It is funny because I just went to this person's Facebook profile and it is all about making money online and pitching his business.
Educate and help people solve their problems. That is the key to build a profitable long lasting business.
Once you start doing that, you will start to get sales in your sleep!
I decided to explore more about what attraction marketing is by subscribing to this FREE 10-Day Online Recruiting Bootcamp available here.
I mean, it sounded too good to be true. Instead of spending 40 hours per week prospecting 40 people one by one, I can spend 2 hours a day marketing and have people find me.
In my marketing I would create a piece of content, it could be a blog post like this or a video. People find my content and if they like what they see, they join or contact me for more information.
I would go to work and come home to a handful of leads wanting more information on what I was offering. I would be at work, check my email and see commission notifications.
People would join me while I am at work!
Now, I am sure you are asking.
Wow, that sounds great, but can I implement this into my business?
Just like anything else in business, this will take work and study.
There is a proven way to build online and you can learn more about it here via the bootcamp.
Are you ready for this journey?
Look forward to working with you.
To Your Success,
