So you’re a brand new FLP Independent Distributor. Congratulations!
No doubt your sponsor / upline manager (the FLP distributor or manager who brought you into the business) has given you some advice and training materials or signposted you to the official FLP Distributor Training website…
But you may still feel at a loose end. After all, there’s so much to do, from getting trained, and setting up your own website; to finding customers, and sponsoring your own distributors to build your downline.
Firstly, don’t panic. Simply make a list of all the things you need to do. Don’t worry if your list grows longer as you remember more things to do – just aim to do, or start, one of those activities every day.
Secondly, remember that the business of Network Marketing is a people business. Having said that, you do need to know FLP’s products and the benefits of joining this business, so that you can attract customers, and sponsor distributors to your downline.
So do use and get to know FLP’s health and beauty products yourself and talk to others who use them, as well as do the distributor training offered by FLP. All of this will give you a good grounding and boost your confidence to go out there and market!
Thirdly, although your FLP sponsor might encourage you to make a list of at least 100 people you know in order to call them all up as potential customers or distributors, you need to work smart not hard! While contacting people you know at the start of your business can generate some customers and possibly even some distributor sign-ups, which will boost your confidence, it’s not the only thing you should do.
You need to think about your target markets – such as mothers of children with health problems like excema, elderly people who need a health boost or have joint problems, and business people who may be looking for another income opportunity – and where you will find them. Then you need to arrange FLP displays, stalls, events or presentations (in person and/or online), so that you will have access to lots of people in your target market at the same time.
Lastly, although you should definitely increase your marketing reach by utilizing the power of the Internet (with your website and through Internet Marketing activities), you need to remember that customers and distributors will be much more likely to buy/sign up if they know, like and trust you.
This means no matter how you found these people in the first place, you need to spend time interacting with them, listening to their issues, and talking to them about the benefits of FLP from their point of view.
Good luck with your business, and may it go from strength to strength!
