2 Simple Ways to Find Prospects to Build Your Business
Are you struggling and stressed to find a prospect to build your business opportunity with? Almost too stressful and time consuming to bother.
Worst still, Googling for a local business owner or even hunting down the first stranger you can chat to – the belly to belly stuff – is even more daunting. Then of course, there is the fear of rejection.
This is best summed up in one word – “Awkward!”
You see, there are only two ways you can find people.
The First Way
One of them is your warm market, the people you already know .. from you relatives, friends, all those people plus the people on your chicken list.
If you still had a warm market that you were willing to go to, then maybe this is an option. The burn through your list is the most common idea preached by most people from leaders in your industry, your upline and the company you are promoting.
I don’t know about you. And it kinda wants to make you freak out.
Look, this method will work for some. But, for most people, it will not.
If this method does works for you, I salute you. However, will the people who join your business be able to replicate it?
You see, it’s not easy and not everyone on your warm market list will be the right kind of audience you should be tapping into. Much like hunting down a stranger at a mall, he or she may or may not be suited to the product, service or the business.
Imagine this, a vegan goes to try this restaurant, and a kind waitress pops by and recommends steak to a vegan? Do you think the vegan would order the steak?
Hopefully, you get my drift.
The Second Way
This option requires you to build a whole new world of warm market. This is where you have to build a trust factor with someone to join your business.
At this point here, you should know who your target audience is. If you do not know, start now, and jot down the characteristics of your ideal customer, your avatar.
In a nutshell, an avatar represents a person you want to attract. Pssst – your ideal avatar is you.
Just as an example, your avatar could be me, I am 44 years old, I am married, I’m dad with 2 kids, I am an entrepreneur and I live in Melbourne.
And with your target audience or target market, it is a group of avatars that you will be building a relationship with.
So get cracking now!
Find your WHY!
That’s right, write down the main reasons you got into network marketing and your company …. and what really stoked your fire.
Your ‘Whys’ and how it helped you – it will be the story you tell, and a personal brand you represent.
Regardless of what any expert or any company endorses, YOU must promote your brand … NOT your company.
By branding YOU, you will stand out and build a connection, a trust factor with your audience.
At the end of the day, people will buy from you, if they know, like and trust you. This is the rule that will never change, and it’s never gonna be any different.
In all types of business, whether it is online or offline, it is going to take some time.
So when people get online, the expectation is that they’re going to be able to jump in, doing all of this attraction marketing and thinking he or she is going to nail this immediately.
You see, the reality is, people still have to know, like and trust you … and there is only one way to do that and that is spending time with you.
And you want to make sure that you are building a relationship.
Whether it is posting Facebook or Instagram Lives, commenting on their posts, messaging each other or whether it’s posting useful content, it is about sharing and helping them. Building a relationship.
Please don’t discount how much time it actually takes to build an online business. It’s the patience that counts.
I’m not saying you can’t get results right away because you can. But the reality is, you have to get to know them, engage and connect. As well, know their pain point, their challenges and be the pain killer, and help them.
But never go out of the way to pitch. If you keep building that trust, your prospect will one day reach out to you about your product, service or business.
