NaXum Reviews #247: The Power Of Daily Habits In Direct SellingPosted by naxumadmin / July 21, 2022
When thinking of direct selling today, some promoters have fallen prey to the fantasy that by the simple act of ‘joining’ a direct selling company, you’ll make money.
This belief is equal to someone downloading the Uber app to make extra income, but never getting in the car to ever give anyone a ride.
The truth is that there is a series of daily habits required for anyone in referral marketing to actually have a business that earns an income.
Ben Dixon, NaXum’s CEO speaks on this exact topic on the NaXum Reviews show this week:
What daily habits must every referral marketing promoter embrace to earn an income?
#1 Daily Renewing Your Mind
The first step to winning in direct sales is to grow your skills. We’re not just speaking about the technical knowledge of ‘what to do’ to be successful in the business but are also talking about your internal communication and external communication.
Internal communication represents your beliefs about yourself.
Your attitudes and beliefs about what you are able to have, receive, do, or be in this world. If you do not believe success would ever come your way or that you are worthy of a successful home-based business, then you’ll never put in the energy required to create a successful enterprise.
External communication represents your beliefs about others.
Your attitudes about how others perceive you, the products or services you promote, the economy, and their world. If you do not believe that others would ever find value in the products or services that you promote or that you are not genuinely solving their needs, then you will never put in the actions required to win in referral marketing.
The best companies in the referral marketing space today will provide apps and tools for you to listen to positive content for 10-15minutes a day to continue to grow your mind and beliefs.
#2 New Conversations
Every business’s success is based on the strength of the referral marketers pipeline.
To fill a pipeline of raving fans and hungry prospects, you must have ‘new conversations’ meaning that you are adding new people to your pipeline on a daily basis.
Without adding new contacts to your pipeline, your business cannot grow. It is impossible to expand without adding new contacts to your pipeline and committing to adding new contacts daily is foundational to your success.
#3 Following Up
To engage the pipeline you’ve created, you must nurture the connections you are prospecting.The experts agree that it many times takes 4-7 exposures to you, your brand, your products and services before a prospect is able to make a decision to participate or not in what you have to offer.
Knowing that it takes 4-7 exposures to your information before someone is able to even make a decision, you would be living in a fantasy land to think that you only need to touch each relationship 1-3 times.
Referral marketers must create a regular rhythm of consistent follow-up actions, 1-2 days apart from one another once they’ve engaged a prospect in exploring your offer.
#4 Sharing in Social Media
There is a party going on right now with people that have a need for exactly what your business offers.
The party is called ‘social media’. Literally, millions of people categorize themselves by joining groups, following threads, and liking fan pages where if only they knew you existed would want to try what you have to offer.
Have you taken the time to identify where your ‘perfect customers’ are congregating? If you have, are you a part of the conversation? Are you bringing value to that community daily and inviting them to connect with you for your solutions?
How are world-class direct selling and referral marketing companies WINNING with daily habits?
Word-class direct selling companies are taking action to recognize and reward daily habits.
We’re seeing companies make the setting, committing to, and winning of daily goals the centerpiece of their referral marketing strategy.
Companies are using apps and online tools to have referral marketing set daily goals for new conversations, following up, minutes invested in growing skills, and sharing on social media.
To additionally bring the focus and attention to daily habits, companies are even deploying dashboards to display the top team members in the company on the longest streaks and the top team members on your team.
