It amazes me how sometimes in life, people make easy things very difficult. The art of selling happens to be one of those things. No matter what field you're in (MLM, real estate investing, etc.); selling is contingent on ONE thing ... the customer! I can't tell you how many businesspeople, entrepreneurs and seminars I've been to where the speakers "preach" about agressive selling techniques and continuous agressive upsells. Don't get me wrong, some of this stuff is important and vital to building long term wealth, but nothing beats basic customer "common courtesies". The wealthiest people I know don't really sell. They give their customers an offer so tantalizing that it virtually sells itself. Most folks in business don't realize people buy things for the "sizzle" ... not the "steak"! Once they make that first sale, they do things such as give away free gifts every quarter, they make it worth a customer's while to send referrals their way by implementing a unique stair step reward system (keeps them motivated), they surprise the customer with an unexpected "out of the ordinary" gift on their "business anniversary" and stay fresh in the customer's mind by giving away a monthly newsletter with informative information (this in itself can EXPLODE your business). When you deal with the customer in this fashion, you're thought of as more of a friend than a salesperson. In the end, the customer is getting what they want, referring more and more customers to you, and you're making boatloads of money! Try it ... you'll be surprised at the results! --Jeff "Make EVERY day a GREAT day!"
