RE: What To Do If Your Company Won't Let You Promote Online (By Daegan Smith)
I just got a great question in from Shannon Hanaway, that I think you may be interested in the answer to:
"I've just been advised that my MLM company won't allow any website- outside their provided template-that customers can link back to for product information and enrollment.
These are my products.
Am I dead in the water or do I just get really creative?"
Fantastic questions and by no means are you dead in the water. You just have to think a little bit differently about how you introduce people to your opportunity.
In all honesty, just sending people to your companies website to learn about your product line isn't going to win you many sales anyway, so it's really more of an non issue than you may think.
I've said it before and I'll say it again. People don't join opportunities, they join people.
Therefore nothing that you do on the front end of your business even needs to ever mention your company. Let me explain . . .
Your best prospects will always be the doers like you. The people striving for success.
What do doers look for?
Information and guidance.
This is all your business on the front end should provide. People will join you because they "know" and you've proven you can help them, not because your moon juice is cooler than the next companies.
So on the front end, do what I do.
Create your own newsletter. Your own lead capture page. Communicate daily.
If you get adventurous create a front end product that solves all of your prospects major concerns.
1. Getting more leads
2. Making more money
3. Recruiting without rejection
Allow them to purchase it from you and then . . .
Once all your marketing costs are paid for by your profits, on the back-end give you your customers a call.
Ask how you can be of further service, naturally they'll be inquisitive as to what else you're up to.
There, right there, is the time you bring up your back end company.
You may say, but "Daegan I can't create a product."
I have two answers for you.
Yes you can and you don't even need a product to recruit online. It just makes it easier.
Even if you were just to create your own list online. Share stories and marketing strategies daily, and as a call to action at the end of your message you said something like:
"If you'd like some personal help give me a call between 4pm and 8pm tonight at XXX-XXXX I'll be in the office to help"
You'll have people ringing your phone off the hook all day and night. Trust me on that one.
See how we never even bring up our company online following this methodology? Well, that's exactly why you're in no way shape or form dead in the water.
If you'd like to learn how to either generate a boat load of leads, create your first front end product, or create a daily flow of profits, there is no better place to learn these skills than as a part of our family.
