You can get “social” with your potential customers on FindSalesRep.com. Let them know what you have in stock, about new products or about sales or special offers. Tell them what they need to know about you, your company and your products by using key words that will lead them straight to you.  Then, show them before and after photos or pictures from a new catalogue. Pictures say a thousand words. Share them! You can put it all in your own words. Use key words to tell them about new products, sales, whatever.

 “Let’s Be Friends”

You know how awkward it can feel sending a friend request to someone on facebook that you don’t actually know.  BUT… it really doesn’t have to be creepy.

Finding friends that you have interests in common with, like YOUR BUSINESS can be good for both you and the person you are making a new connection with.  Making NEW friends on fb can be fun for EVERYONE.

Think about it, these are people that you are going to have direct, personal contact and they might even turn in to potential customers and who knows, you might become their customer too, or maybe you will exchange referrals. It’s good for everybody, but especially for small-business owners, like you that want to connect directly with local people, this can give you and your business a big boost.


So…  YOU ready to make some new friends?love facebook

POST below in the comment section. Let us know that you LOVE making NEW friends and then give us a link to your fb page and your business website. If you want, you can also give a brief — very brief — bio of your involvement with your company.

Once you’ve posted about YOU, start making new friends with the other small business owners in the comment section below. You can send a friend request and/or comment about their post.  BE FRIENDLY! 

Take some time to find relevant connections. You don’t have to be friends with everybody. You’ll find that connecting with like minded people will inspire you.

CONNECTIONS are EVERYTHING in Direct Sales…. Let’s START CONNECTING!

Targeting the Ideal Customer

Posted on September 30, 2014. Filed under: Build It Make It Create It, Direct Sales Tips, Entrepreneurs ONLY, Expand Beyond Your Warm Market, Get in Front of an Ideal Audience, How To Do The Business, How To Grow Your Direct Sales Team, How to Make It, How to Reach Your Target Audience, Making It In Net Work Marketing, Network Marketing Made Easy, Reach Your Target Audience, Targeting | Tags: , , , , , , |

How do you target the ideal customer?

To successfully introduce new customers to you company and the products you offer,  it’s essential to focus exclusively on the prospects you believe are most likely to purchase from you.

WHO are they?  We asked a few of our favorite independent direct sales reps:

-Your ideal customer may be prospects who are currently buying something similar and will appreciate the additional features your new product or service provides.

-Your best prospects have a perceived need for what you offer, can afford to buy it and have demonstrated a willingness to do so–probably by purchasing from your competition. Bear in mind, it’s always easier to fill a need than to create one.

Share the benefits and features that your prospective customers will value most.  The bottom line is that working with you and your company should be unique and meet the needs and desires of your best prospects.  Show then how you can make that happen.

How?

Will you market online, via catalog or by archery target? Generally,  a multi-channel marketing tactic will help you achieve the greatest success.

Why?

Customers who can shop when and however they like tend to spend more and shop more often. Suppose your strategy is to market a weight loss product to people who can’t afford gym memberships or high-priced home equipment. You might choose traditional face to face/home party direct marketing plus a website as your primary channels, and then online ads and e-mail solicitations that link to your website.  These are all great ideas, but no one action alone is going to give you the results that you are looking for.  Aim to combined all of them.

When?

For startup entrepreneurs, the need to constantly tinker with the business never ends. “You have always got to be thinking about how you can tweak whatever you have to make it even better.”

If you feel like you have too much going on, stop and just focus on just one at a time. Try spending time on one project per day and see how much you accomplish.

Posted on September 28, 2012. Filed under: Get in Front of an Ideal Audience, How To Do The Business, How to Reach Your Target Audience, Nitche Marketing, Reach Your Target Audience, Tips for your business | Tags: , , , , , , , , |

Do you have a Niche?
Who’s in your Niche audience?
How do reach in to your Niche and grab attention?
Having a Niche can help grow your business efficiently by targeting only customers and prospective business partners that want what you’ve got. Your Niche is what you are ‘known for’. It’s what gets you in the door in certain groups – like a VIP pass. Niche marketing allows your business to be a big fish in a small pond and helps you differentiate your product from other similar products or yourself from other reps with the same products.
So, HOW DO YOU DO IT?
This is your chance to finally write the first chapter in your ‘TELL ALL’ book!

Fairs, expos, conventions, exhibits and trade shows are a great way to reach your target niche audience

Posted on March 15, 2012. Filed under: Expo Experts, Find A Trade Show, Get in Front of an Ideal Audience, How to Find Vendor Events in Your Area, How to Reach Your Target Audience, Nitche Marketing | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

How do you find Vendor events/expos/opportunities where you can share your products with TONS of New People?

Not everyone markets their Home Business this way but Fairs, Expos, Conventions, Exhibits and Trade Shows are a great way to reach your target niche audience and also a fantastic way to demonstrate your items, talk face to face with prospects and create Immediate Cash Sales! 

So, We Asked A Few EXPO EXPERTS, that know how to rock the trade show world to share a few tips that will HELP YOU get in front an ideal audience!

  Heather Nickless To find them, I focus on what I am wanting to find. Bridal events are perfect for my product so I search for local bridal expos. It’s completely different than craft fairs. More people are willing to spend extra time at your booth and your marketing has to be definitely different. Where as with craft fairs, your focusing on the product, bridal events are more like what you can do for the bride, how you can help their wedding day and so forth.

  Emily Rios Sanchez I love doing shows. I have products that are popular with Avon Customers and sell those items. When doing shows, also talk to other vendors around you. You get great ideas from them. Raise your display tables high where a customer can see it at eye level. I use the bed risers from walmart.

  Kelly McKenzie I am a Military wife and I do events that usually consist of other military wives but not limited to only military wives. I always give out Avon samples with our brochures. I talk to everyone that comes by my booth and I always bring items that I can get at a good price so they dont have to pay much. I always decorate my table so it is appealing to the eye. I try to go with a holiday theme close to that date ie. v day, easter, halloween stuff like that or by the season. I always let people sample perfumes. I have a basket of goodies giveaway to get contact info. I use square so I can accept credits cards easily at a event so the customer has a easy payment option. I make sure to give out my business card with my info and sing up info on it. I usually do any event where I think women will be since Avon is more for women. I have done fairs, expos and conventions. Also get to know the other vendors cause that is how you can get more event on your schedule. Vendors usually stick together and help each other out by sharing event info,dates and such.

  Kina Oneal I generally search for local events, festivals and such most importantly health fairs and events to showcase Plexus Slim and share information, testimonials including my own of how these awesome products have improved my health and business opportunity have increased my wealth. Also have samples available so that interested parties can taste the drink first hand. I make available the 3 day trial packs for those that are skeptical but want try. People are having a hard time believing that there is a product that can help you lose weight without changing your eating habits and/or exercising it. I’m a walking testimony, I’ve lost 51lbs without doing either! When they see my pics and pics of others that are displayed…the become amazed and excited.

My purpose for doing events is to at least let others know there is an option that could work for them…..and possibly change their life as mine have changed. I’m so grateful and want to partake in as many events as possible to make a difference in somebody else’s life. I hand out brochures that include photos, business cards, offer chances to win prizes. I also connect with other vendors to see how we can help and/or work together including keeping each other informed of upcoming events. Events are a great way to reach a larger audience at once. 🙂

  Jean Ferraro- Young I have become a member of several womens business groups–Amazing women who do help each other. I have done various vendor events, which I have found on FB or through my contacts. I try to do a theme–holiday or special occasion with my presentation on my table. I will say the sales are not always the greatest, or would I would want them to be. I give out samples–have offered specials and always have a raffle, which does get me some names for future contacts. The vendor events do give me a great opportunity to meet other business women, who I have established friendships with and have open other doors for business opportunities.

  Shad A Drury Call the companies corporate offices and tell them what area you are in and if they provide leads they will forward your information along to their reps. If not, they will give you some names of reps in your area. The key is networking networking and more networking. This page, FindSalesRep.com is an excellent idea and will bring great opportunity for many people! Great work, folks!

Awe, Shad, you are making the whole corporate office at FindSalesRep Blush!

AND… Thanks to each one of you for sharing these insights.  You truly know how to reach a target audience and FIND a Fair!
