A home based business GOLD MINE for prospects?
Yes. A VERY Powerful One.
Today, you have many types of small business owners in social media and online. There are small business fan pages, professional fan pages, knols, blogs, wikis, and many other different kind of small business places to find prospects.
Many people ignore the small business owner.
I did not.
I recruited personally over 100 of them as they were a gold mine in CONTACTS. They already understood the power of running a business. And they already were doing it every day.
If I would have had social media in the 90s to recruit from, I would have recruited hundreds more as it truly makes it so much easier. But yet, many home business owners do no recruit small business owners.
It is quite puzzling to me. Especially in today’s economy- many of them are looking for alternative revenue sources.
I would suggest that you take a HARD LOOK at small business owners as they are a GOLD MINE in social networking as well as offline networking. And I DO believe we are in NETWORK marketing.
That is why I am going to say this ONE MORE TIME:
There is a virtual Gold Mine out in the marketplace online as well as offline, for network marketing and home business that is being virtually ignored by most folks.
These small business owners have major Success ASSETS for Home Business Success.
And they are waiting on you to tap into. Small business professionals have 5 things they bring to a home business and MLM that can prove to be absolutely invaluable:
1) Contacts around the country.
2) Existing clients.
3) Experience in the marketplace.
4) Exposure, credibility, and visibility to a lot of folks.
5) Capital that can purchase products.
Many of these owners today, because of the economy, are looking for other sources of revenue. They are major entrepreneurs, and understand the concept of multiple streams of income and revenue options, which are available in a Network Marketing home business.
Ok, who are these gold mines?
The Small Business Professional in your city and town.
And this Gold mine is endless as far as potential, possibilities, contacts, sales, and profit.
We all need to get into our warm market whether in social media or offline, and rarely is a warm market totally exhausted. Most people never call on a third of their warm market. That is an industry fact.
But we ALL know small business professionals in our warm market, and they are a lot of times very willing to take a look at a “secondary revenue source”.
Let me ask you some questions:
Who do you purchase things from on a regular basis?
Who do you buy your insurance from?
Who did you buy your real estate from?
Who do you purchase your groceries from? Who do you know that owns a small business?
These are just a few of the folks we do business with that can be a gold mine in network marketing and a home business.
Small business owners are looking today for how to expand, increase, improve, and enlarge their current business and profits, and network marketing has proven to be a great source of income for the right business owner.
Who would be some small business professionals in your town as well as on social media?
1) Print Shop Managers/Owners.
2) Book Store Managers/ Owners
3) Restaurant Manager/ Owner
6) Stock Broker
7) Jewelry Store Manager/Owner
8) Service Station Owner
9) Local Pharmacy owner
10) Grocery Store Owner/ manager
11) Book keepers
12) Fitness Trainers
13) Health Professionals
14) Medical professionals
The List is endless.
You will be shocked how large the market really is. HUGE!
The average city has literally hundreds and even thousands of small business owners, and they all have one thing in common:
Wanting to enlarge and multiply profits.
Try to stay within the range of 10- 25 employees to start off. This is a good number and usually the owner is in a position to make the decisions without a lot of red tape.
Start contacting the small business owners you know, and ask for their help. Ask them to take a look at your Network marketing products and services, and consider making them available to their employees at a discount. Ask if you could do a mini seminar at their place of business after hours.
And then run the idea past them of having a secondary revenue source themselves with your products.
We were blessed to recruit hundreds upon hundreds of small business owners in our group, and it really was easy, once you got your first one.
They brought in the rest into MLM and Network Marketing. And that is why that I believe that the small business owner is one of the most overlooked prospect GOLD MINES in the home business profession.
