Building A Robust Names List
The article that I shared on the two types of names list to grow out of in order to run a successful home business seems to have aroused a lot of interest. Now here is information on how to build a robust names list that will ensure sustainable success for your home business.
Once you master how to do this right, you will never run out of prospects for your home business ever again.
Business professionals write down their list and it is an ever growing and living names list. To be able to have such a list, you must become a sociable individual who learns how to create opportunities to meet new people, collect their contact details and create ways to stay in touch with them.
When you run a home based business, especially one that uses network marketing as the marketing model, never forget that your success depends on your ability to build relationships with the people you intend to be your business partners. Before the product and the opportunity, people first buy into you.
Now this is how to build that robust names list that will ensure that you have an endless source of people to talk to about your business:
STEP 1 – Make A Comprehensive Names List
Do not be selective as to who you add to the list. As long their name pops into your head write them down.
The mistake to avoid as a word of mouth marketer is to judge whether or not people are potential prospects before adding them to the list. Just write down the names of everyone you know. They need not even know you; if you know them, just write their name down.
STEP 2 – Write Down Who They Know
As you empty your brains of the people that you know by writing them down on paper, you will realize that you create more room in it for new names to remember. Obviously the people that you have written down know other people and their names will start coming up too. Write them down. Keep your list with you at all times and keep adding names as they surface from your memory.
STEP 3 – Keep Your Names List Growing
Keep your names list growing by adding at least two people a day. Pay attention to what’s happening in the world. Increase your social circles by attending church, business forums, networking events, joining a gym, going to parties when invited etc., and when you get there talk to people and collect their contact details. NETWORK ON PURPOSE by putting yourself out there and developing the skills to talk engagingly with the people that you meet. Do not be a hermit. Deliberately go out to make friends.
STEP 4 – Do Not Pitch
As you interact with people, make new contacts and add them to your list, remember this golden rule, do not pitch them your product or business opportunity. Avoid the mistake of seeing dollar signs on people’s faces. Instead see people and be genuinely interested in them enough to know about them and create genuine friendships. Find creative ways of staying in touch with them and when the time is right, help them to understand what you have to offer through your business and/or opportunity.
That sounds simple hey? It is simple and it is also not easy to do.
