Marketing Tips and Secrets – Part 2

So I assume that most of you have read part one of this article and have all the techniques mastered. I am guessing they have helped you increase your sales tremendously. From here we are going to go over some of the details.

1. If you remember in the first article, I told you to always place your product into the hands of the potential consumer. But what if you have more than one product. Let’s say you have three separate products. Always start with your mid-priced item. If this person buys this item then move on to the higher priced item. If not then try the lower priced item.

2. You are going to get four types of people. The Buyers, The No’s, The lookers, and The hagglers. Never show the lookers more than two items. If they are not interested just move on. Do not get haggled; remember you are offering a great deal already. If they are not convinced of this, they aren’t buying.

3. Don’t scare people. Learn how to present your pitch in a friendly inviting tone. Be funny if you want to. Just don’t be offensive. Try to dress nice and chew gum when possible. No one likes talking to someone with bad breath.

4. To spark interest in your product Keep a display model out of the case so you can show it. For Example I was once selling calculators than unfolded with the push of a button. I would put it in someone’s hands and watch their amazement as it opened.

5. I want to leave you with a personal people grabber I use. Ask, “Have you got one yet” people will normally say, “what” and now you have a catcher ready to receive your pitch.

This is a short article; however combined with article one you will be able to find tune your marketing skills. Never give up, if you follow these methods you are guaranteed to succeed.

How are sarees created?

Sarees in Sri Lanka can be created using many different dyes and fabrics, but each material has its own unique qualities that make it stand out among others. For example, silk sarees in Sri Lanka, create an elegant look while cotton sarees offer more casual wear for everyday use.

The process of making a saree begins with the selection of the fabric. The cloth is typically sourced from local markets or textile mills, and then it is either batik printed or hand-loomed using traditional methods. Once the cloth has been prepared, it is cut into specific dimensions depending on the style of saree that is being made. Next, the borders are stitched together to form a tube shape, and then pleats are created along one edge of the fabric. After that, the other end of the fabric is tucked in and sewn shut so that it forms a complete circle. Creating designs on the saree fabric is a time-consuming process that can take several days to complete. First, the cloth is dyed in different colours. Finally, any embellishments such as sequins or lace are added to finish off the look of the saree.

The saree is a very elegant and stylish type of women’s attire which can be worn for any occasion, depending on the fabric and the intricacy of the embroidery or prints. From workwear to formal attire, the saree has certainly taken its place among society today, making it one of the most sought after women’s clothing in South Asian countries.

Direct Sales Training – Are You Smarter Than a Junk Dealer?

Most of us balk at being called a junk dealer, but follow along with me.

One of Napoleon Hill’s stories in “Think and Grow Rich” made me consider how many of us aren’t even good junk dealers. Sometimes you think you’ve hit the mother load in your business – a great customer, a superstar recruit, the next big promotion – and then something happens and you call it quits. You figure you’ve tried EVERYTHING and NOTHING WORKS. You think it’s not meant to be, so you give up hope and give up striving.

Guess what? You’re right. You’re also wrong.

In Hill’s story, a man “was caught by the ‘gold fever’ in the gold-rush days, and went west to DIG AND GROW RICH”. His hard work proved his claim to be the richest in Colorado, and after more time, sweat and money, they reached a break-even point with the venture.

And then the vein was lost.

Oh, they kept drilling, digging, searching, and scrambling to find the vein, but invariably, as most sad stories do, this one ends with the decision to give up, sell everything and return to the life he once knew.

But for one savvy junk dealer, this is not a sad story.

You see, he bought all the equipment from the man for pennies on the dollar and then made a brilliant decision: he hired an expert to advise him on what to do next.

After crunching a few numbers, the expert said that the first man’s didn’t know what he was doing. In fact, ‘his calculations showed that the vein would be found just three feet’ away from where the first man quit.

The junk dealer became ridiculously successful mining millions from the very vein that was thought “lost” by the first man.

One man’s trash is truly another man’s treasure.

Now the first man didn’t “just quit”. He kept trying for months after he first struck gold. Had he sought expert help, though, he could have saved himself a ton of time, money, energy and the humiliation of apparent failure.

Do you think you’re smarter than a junk dealer?

No doubt the first man thought he knew exactly what he was doing – and that he was doing it right. He did strike gold in the first place. He was successful at first, wasn’t he?

How could a junk dealer know more than he did about mining gold?

The point is the junk dealer didn’t assume he knew more than anyone. He sought out an expert to handle the details he was unclear about. As a result, the price he paid for that wise counsel paled in comparison to the great riches he mined from his claim.

Many times MLM and Direct Sales reps do the very same thing: struggle for months with what you THINK you know to be the gospel truth about running your business. You might even listen to a few voices in your up-line that offer advice to you about the best methods of prospecting. But are they truly experts? Nope. They should be experts on running their business, NOT running YOUR business. Just because they’ve been successful in the past doesn’t mean their advice will serve YOU in the present – or even into the future.

This is a CRITICAL mistake that so many people in this business make.

It is unreal how many people say “I just do what my up line tells me” blindly obeying every command from their up line. Lest you think I’m being one-sided here, it’s even MORE unreal to me how many people choose to ignore completely the advice their up line gives them, and then struggle to be successful, ultimately quitting because “that MLM stuff doesn’t work”.

So what should you do? Be at least as smart as a junk dealer.

Don’t assume you know everything – you don’t or you’d be at the top of your pay scale in your company.

But don’t assume your leaders know everything either. They can’t possibly be expected to know everything under the sun about running your Direct Sales business – chances are good they built most of their “empire” using outdated tactics that barely work for them anymore. There’s no way they have time to learn Internet Marketing Strategies, Direct Response Strategies, Bulk Mail strategies, P2P Strategies, and any other strategies that come down the pike in the next 5-10 years. At best, they’ve picked up a few things that work for them, but that doesn’t guarantee it’ll work for you.

Don’t be afraid to ask for expert advice. And don’t be afraid to invest in your business education. Experts are rarely free, but their advice is sound and usually guaranteed for the price you pay. And the cost of that investment always pales in comparison to the return on the knowledge you’ve gained.
