How do you market Forever Living products and the biz opp Online?

Google AppsIf you weren’t sponsored by me, it’s very likely that your FLP upline manager will encourage you to do person to person marketing and recruiting, as this is the traditional and most commonly taught method of building a Multi Level Marketing (MLM) business.

Don’t get me wrong, this is good to some degree, because it gets you meeting new people and talking to them about their needs. But you can be so much more successful if your FLP business is also marketed via the Internet.

So what’s the first step with Internet Marketing?

First of all you will probably need a website for your new FLP business. There are various options here.

The simplest option is simply to get one of the official FLP website packages offered to their distributors, for a fixed fee every month (priced from £10 per month, at the time of writing). Although the website is fairly fixed, you do get some template options and you can edit the ready done text to make it a little more personal to you (if you want to).

This option has the advantage of being pre-approved by FLP’s marketing department, and includes links for customer shopping and distributor sign ups (both will be credited to you, which is important).

However the downside is if you take the cheapest option, you will not have your own domain name, but an extended one such as www. aloebeehealth. myflpbiz. com (remove spaces when copying and pasting to your browser). Further you will not be in control of Search Engine Optimization (SEO) features for your website, such as keywords, as all of this comes pre-done within the FLP template.

A second option is of course to buy your own domain name from a website hosting company (such as JustHost.com – the provider I use for most of my own websites) and then build your website, or install a WordPress blog onto it and build it within WordPress.org.

This option is not nearly as difficult as it sounds, because simple websites can usually be built quite easily with templates and site builder software provided by your hosting company or within WordPress. This gives you much more control over content on your website, pages, links, and SEO issues – which means in theory your website should be found more easily in the Search Engines.

The downside is that you will need to submit your website to FLP’s marketing department for approval, and there are fairly strict rules on what content is allowed (especially in terms of health claims associated with Aloe Vera). Further it will not be as easy to link customer purchases and distributor sign ups made via your website to you (for FLP commission payments), although with some assistance from FLP’s technical department, you should be able to build these into your website.

Finally, you cannot leave your website floating out there in cyberspace. You need to use Internet Marketing techniques in order to help your website be found in the Search Engines, such as Google, and also attract more visitors, thus enabling more customer sales and distributor recruitment.

Some Internet Marketing methods:

  • Posting information, links and announcements via Social Media, such as Facebook and Twitter,
  • Creating interesting and watchable Videos of the FLP business opportunity and/or the products,
  • Writing Articles or Blog Posts about Aloe Vera, FLP and related issues that your target market(s) will want to read,
  • Participating in health and beauty and/or home business Forums, as an expert – posting useful information and replying to questions, and including your website link.

All the best with your online marketing efforts! 🙂

What do you need to do to start your Forever Living business?


forever-logo

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!

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
