Written by Joe Bingham

Most likely, you are restrictingrepparttar growth of your business by unknowingly restricting how you promote it.

So many in network marketing promote their opportunity in a very limited fashion. They approach others withrepparttar 117509 idea of working from home or owning their own business.

But is that reallyrepparttar 117510 only way you can market?

Now, eventually to sign someone up under you, that subject is going to have to come up. But still, there are many other ways you can lead in with people to start with.


I've always maintained that people should not join companies if they don't believe inrepparttar 117511 products they will be selling. As well, if you are not using your company's products yourself, how do you expect to sell them to your downline?

With that in mind, why not attract more people to your business opportunity simply by first introducing them to your products? A happy customer makes a natural prospect forrepparttar 117512 business opportunity. Plus, this method can increase your own personal product sales and encourage even those who choose not to join in your business to refer others they know to you.


Another way to bring up your business opportunity is to simply talk about whatrepparttar 117513 company or it's products have done for you. Don't start out with a business proposition when talking to prospects, but rather pique their interest by first relating personal stories of how you have benefited.

Is there a product you use personally that has enriched your life? Let them know. People recommend products to each other allrepparttar 117514 time. This is a natural and non-threatening way to start a conversation about your company.

As well, you can talk about how you've benefited from having your own business. Has it made you extra money? Given you more options? More freedom? Or allowed you or your spouse to quit a regular job?

People are much more willing to listen to personally related real benefits than a sales pitch. Once you've interested them with what your company has done for you, then you can suggest how it could dorepparttar 117515 same for them.


Most likely there are others in your company that have intriguing success stories. Everyone likes to hear about regular people making it big as it gives them hope of doingrepparttar 117516 same.

Are there stories you can tell to solicit interest in your company? Can you then relate them to how you are doing AND how your prospect hasrepparttar 117517 same potential?

You will need to put everything on a personal level for your prospect in order to be effective, but often other's success stories can generate an initial interest you can then build upon.

Using other's personal product or business testimonies can be effective as well. It lends more credibility to what you are saying if you have other people's words backing it up.

Show Up

Show up. That's all. The most important part of any task, creative or otherwise, is simply to show up. By "showing up", I mean get started onrepparttar creative task. The task may be as simple as giving a presentation, or as complicated as writing a book, but if you show up, you can do it. Showing up to tackle a creative task isrepparttar 117508 hardest part ofrepparttar 117509 project. The problem with any creative task is that you can't figure out how to do it usingrepparttar 117510 logical left side of your brain. Creativity requires that you use your right brain; your intuitive self. The left side of your brain,repparttar 117511 analytical logical side, doesn't trustrepparttar 117512 right side. It doesn't want to relinquish control. This means that it's very hard for most of us just to sit down and start.

There's a simple way to sidestep this problem. Acknowledge that are two modes of perception, left brained, and right brained, and that your right brain will performrepparttar 117513 creative task. "Perform" is exactly what your right brain does, when it's presented withrepparttar 117514 creative task.

I learned that showing up works when I started writing. To write a book, you have to sit down and write it. You may not know how to do it, but do it anyway. Write down a word, and then another word. Byrepparttar 117517 time you've written five or twenty words, you have a sentence. Keep on showing up, sitting down and writing another word, and before too long you have a chapter. It's taken me almost twenty years, but I realize now that showing up is really *all* that's required.
