Finding and Keeping Customers in Multi Level Marketing (MLM)

Multi Level Marketing is a very interesting concept which makes selling very easy. The fact that anyone and everyone can join the Network marketing business and earn handsome income by selling the products without any investment or risk makes it the most attractive business proposition to people. MLM companies spend a lot of money and effort on providing the distributors with product literature and promotional materials to help them sell the products. Besides they invest on training the distributors too and equipping them not only with the product knowledge but in training them on the sales process. Sales process in MLM business involves recruiting and building network of distributors. When each distributor joins up the network and buys products for his use you start clocking sales automatically. But then it is also important for every distributor to focus on selling the product directly through retail sales other than focusing on building distributor network too.

While you will have undergone extensive training on the entire sales process involving prospecting, qualifying, approaching, making presentation, follow up, clarifying and concluding sales, you will have become an expert in selling and communication. Selling does not end here.

Sharing & Selling

You Have got to sell the products directly too in addition to your distributors buying the products through you.

If you are an Amway Distributor, you could talk about the quality of wash and the saving on detergents that you are able to achieve with the help of Amway products. When you talk about your experience and savings, it is definitely going to attract the attention of your colleagues or friends who are around.

In all of these situations, it helps to share your experience and information so that the others find value in it and they get to see that it works.
