I thought I would take this post in a different direction with the end of football season upon us. If you just watched the video above then you know the following words will be meant for those of you who want to win. Win at career, win at family and win at life. Since leaving corporate America a few years ago I have found a very lucrative home in the world of consulting and network marketing. Now I know what you are thinking, “not another pyramid scheme,” but pyramid schemes are illegal so I will not cover those in this post because I do not participate in them personally and do not endorse illegal activities.
What I have found is that network marketing, multi-level marketing, referral marketing and direct selling are all the same as saying that “I sell products or services by word of mouth to friends, family and strangers.” When you think about what it takes to start, grow and maintain your new business you always have to come back to getting customers. How are you going to get new customers as well as team members to help you market your products or services? Well, you could start by advertising all over the place (which is expensive) or you could just spread the word through the infinite amount of communication portals at our disposal in 2013 (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.).
Spread The Word
If you watched the Super Bowl last night, I am sure that you saw the dozens of different commercials of companies that were hopeful you would buy their products sometime in the immediate future. Each 30 second spot went for a whopping $4,000,000 just on the hope that you would remember their clever ad when it was time for you to buy your next car, home, TV etc. Well just imagine if all of the companies who participated last night decided to keep their money in their pocket and save it for when you bring them and actual customer. That’s all relationship marketing is…the company pays you instead of a TV station, newspaper, radio or billboard company.
Now when they pay you, they know that they have a customer and they know how they got the customer into their fold. When one customer wanders in from the outside, the company doesn’t have a clue as to whether it was from the ad on TV or the billboard on the interstate. Every company would prefer to know just how they reached every consumer of their product because they know the referred consumer is the one that sticks because of the strength of the relationship that steered them to the company in the first place.
So now that we are considering a different approach to financial freedom, the big question comes as to which product or service do you provide to your inner and outer circle of relationships. That decision is one that is totally yours to make depending on your work ethic and your passion.
The opportunity I chose to pursue was one that would be a win for all who participate in it…deregulated energy. Deregulated energy is a win for the consumer, supplier, incumbent and the marketer of the gas or electricity provider (which could be you). All you have to do is ask people who you know to consider lowering their utility bills. If they become your energy customer, you get paid every time they pay their bill. Simple huh?
Some of the people you have this discussion with may want to join you in this very lucrative business opportunity. Show them the simple business plan, answer a few questions and send them to your website to join your team. Keep duplicating the simple business plan on a regular basis and you should be earning thousands of dollars per month in no time.
Lastly, if you are like most people who participated in the New Year’s Resolution phenomenon this year, you have probably given up on some or all of those commitments. I have found the Top 3 resolutions to normally be lose weight, stop smoking, and save money. I can help you with the third one and maybe, by knocking out the “save more money” goal, you can get those other ones out of the way because now you will have more time to dedicate to your new disciplines.
