Are you a network marketer or want to launch a network marketing campaign? You will be more successful if you avoid common mistakes. Keep reading to find out more about common network marketing mistakes.
Do not come across as pushy, conceited or fake. People will want to purchase your products and become a part of your network if they feel they can trust you and gain status by associating with you. You need to come across as a trustworthy, detail-oriented professional. You can achieve this by paying attention to your appearance and developing a strong online presence to document your achievements and share your advice and opinion on topics your customers will be interested in.
Your network will stagnate and disappear if you do not maintain it properly. Organize your network as a pyramid of concentric circles to determine how close you are to each customer or partner. People will slowly move toward the edges of your network if you do not contact them frequently, but be careful not to contact people too often to avoid annoying them. As you gain more experience, you will be able to determine how interested a customer really is and establish contact when needed.
Customers will lose interest if you do not offer new deals and new products on a regular basis. Keep looking for new products your existing customers will be interested in, and do your best to lower prices when possible. Release your new products strategically, for instance by waiting for the holiday season to launch a new product or organizing a contest to generate some anticipation for a new product. Get some feedback from your customers to select the best products available.
Your network is not limited to your customers. Your professional connections represent an important part of your network, even though most network marketers do not openly discuss these connections. You need to stay in touch with distributors, sellers and anyone who can help you locate quality products at low prices or new potential customers. Keep in mind that your customers can become professional connections if they have a large circle of friends who might be interested in your products too.
Avoid distractions when you are at work. It can be easy to get side-tracked and engage in personal conversations. You should always keep in mind that your goal is not to make friends, even though most of your customers will not make this distinction and consider you as a close friend once they get to know you. You can avoid distractions by timing your phone calls and planning on getting the contact information of a certain number of people for each event you attend. Take breaks when you need to and spend quality time with your friends and family to relax and interact with people without having to worry about selling your products.
You will become a successful network marketer if you avoid these common mistakes. You should set some goals for your campaign and monitor your results to increase your chances of becoming successful.
