MLM the Holidays and YOU!
Don’t be “That Guy or Gal” at the holiday punch bowl, who can’t stop talking about the business!
Those who are serious about their network marketing business keep working and those who are looking DON’T stop looking because of the holidays.
You can really set a pace for an explosive start of the year by continuing to work steadily.
Don’t stop working – you don’t quit anything else – marriage, kids, job, church, fitness and so on
Don’t bring up your network marketing business at holiday events, parties and family gatherings except in a general sense. And, if people ask you, be positive and let them know now is not a good time, when can you connect in the next few days? Be a pro!
DO use these events to meet a lot of people and begin conversations. Get contact info and learn as much as you can about them. Look for buying signs and signals but hold back, don’t pounce.
Keep contacting people and expect that they may say they are too busy, and to check back in January. PERFECT! This is great because it will fill in your january calendar. Just keep track and follow up!
Remember, it’s just small blocks of time that make it happen. Schedule 2 blocks of 15 minutes each in your calendar each day for contacting new people.
Don’t overuse your products as gifts for family and friends. This can be a real turn off. If you’ve never done this before, pick and choose, and be careful.
Have a team social holiday party.
Have a customer appreciation party, even a lunch to make it fast and easy. And, schedule one on ones for those who can’t make it to showcase new products and give some samples.
Hold a holiday open house for those in party plan or with products that fit.
Carry samples with you and never give one out without getting their contact info.
If you send a card with photos and updates, send ONE that has you at an event. Don’t mention it, just include it to create curiosity.
If you have children and are in the Santa line strike up conversations. Connect and get contact information but don’t dump on people right there. Drop hints, create interest and follow up.
Do some follow up now with past contacts. Schedule a phone or face-to-face appointment to review your program or products. How might your products fill a need for your contacts or referrals during the holiday season? Brainstorm some ideas before the meeting.
Begin reviewing your past year’s goals and accomplishments. Where can you improve? In what ways can you push yourself on to bigger and better next year? Have your next year’s business plan concrete before January 1!
Keep your focus, remember CANI (constant and never ending improvement) and enjoy the season, knowing that you are doing and being the best you can be! Set big expectations and make them happen.
Online tips –
Use your amazon links now to promote on social media. But, be cool, don’t just advertise. Strengthsfinder is a good example!
Don’t use the year in videos, so that they stay evergreen. So don’t say – Close of the year, 2014!
Share photos of your team parties and customer parties on social media. Create interest.
This is a good time to work on the techie side of your blog. Spend time planning for next year; develop an editorial calendar and with some planning, your online activities will soar!
1. Schedule your team party.
2. Schedule your customer party.
3. Schedule your calendar with 15 minute blocks of time.
4. Find events going on where you can meet people.
5. Have a plan for meet, greet, get to know and follow up later.
