3 Surprising Ways to Find New Clients

People tell me the weirdest stories. Some are tales of drunken escapades, brushes with law enforcement or photos inadvertently distributed on the internet. Others are more surprising: They star astonishingly sober folks hellbent on playing by their own business rules. One of my favorite themes of the second group: People who employ unconventional methods for connecting with new customers. Get ready to put their oddball antics to work for your business.

Make house calls.

Andy Dunn, founder and CEO of New York City-based Bonobos, wanted to sell a better brand of britches directly to men online, without stocking the product in stores. To build a customer base, he loaded up his car with samples and hosted private events in homes around New York. Gents could try the pants on and experience Bonobos’ better fit and better service model, then have the product shipped directly to their homes. His customers became his evangelists, and Dunn’s schedule filled up with in-home events. Bonobos reached its first $1 million in revenue without spending a dollar on customer acquisition (aside from the cost of gas). Today Bonobos boasts sales in the multimillions — and it all started by going directly to the customer.

Offer unlimited service.

Domain registrar Name.com is known for its exceptional customer service — and that’s not business as usual in the domain-name game. But how many businesses do you know that actively provide service to noncustomers? In early 2011 that’s exactly what Name.com did. Via Twitter, the team caught wind of a software developer whose domain name had been hijacked. (This can occur when your domain registrar mistakenly allows your name to be transferred without the proper authorization.) Name.com reached out to the noncustomer and subsequently tracked down the hijacker — all the way to Ukraine. The company’s outstanding efforts (and the good PR they generated) earned it a slew of domain transfers from other consumers.

Differentiate your direct mail.

Business consultant Ashley Ambirge is nothing if not unconventional. The mind behind The Middle Finger Project, which pushes people to “get your ass off the warm-up bench,” Ambirge encourages clients to take unconventional and sometimes rocky paths to achieve hell, yeah status in their businesses. A copywriter by trade, Ambirge decided to create a very targeted direct-mail campaign aimed at companies she wanted as clients — but she skipped out on traditional collateral materials. Instead, she went to a roofing supply company. Yes, a roofing supply company. She sent 30 companies (new home builders) a single roofing shingle inscribed with the words “My Company + Your Company = sales through the roof.” The result? A 100 percent response rate, with nearly every one of the responders becoming a client over the following year.

The key to unconventional customer acquisition is to remember to keep it about the customers. Think about their needs. Go where they are. Make them laugh. Help them. And, once you have them, provide exceptional service so they stick around and help you bag new customers.

Don’t worry if your competitors think you’re all about using shenanigans to bring folks to your door. We know that it’s all about your dedication to your current and future customers’ needs.

Thinking outside of the box for sure. Thanking Erika Napoletano for this great article!

The Network Marketer’s Formula of F.O.R.M.

The F.O.R.M. formula is a very important method in the network marketing industry. We as marketers should incorporate this formula whenever we are meeting new prospects. Making a sale should not be our main focus. Sales will come, but we should get in the habit of building relationships. Many Joint Ventures (JV’s) and business partnerships have been started through meeting people and generally conversing using the F.O.R. M. method.

 

DEFINITION OF F.O.R.M.

 

  • F – FAMILY

Ask questions to find out where the person lives, if they are married, single, divorced and /or have
children. Everyone likes to talk about their families. Take the time to listen and relate to the
conversation.

  • O – Occupation

What occupation is the person currently involved in? How long and what brought them
to thinking about making a financial change? Ask them, “What has moved you to make this change in your life right now?” Find out their WHY.

  • R – Recreation

What activities does the person like to do in their spare time? Do they have any hobbies and / or interests to share? Have they done any traveling and where?

  • M – Motivation

Ask them this question, “If money wasn’t an object, what would you love to do even if you were not paid?”

 When I meet someone in the industry for the first time, unconsciously this method is implemented. That’s because I really care and want to know more about that person. It does not matter if they join my business. As I stated above, sales will come.

Network marketing is a people business. Everyone has their own story to tell. Many lives have been greatly impacted just from greeting people and sharing life messages. People relate to others better when stories are shared. Also, try to implement the F.O.R.M. method outside of network marketing. With a little deviation, you can use this method in everyday encounters.

Zeek Rewards is Closed for Business

Zeek Rewards is No Longer in Business…

Zeek Rewards was recently shut down by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on fraudulent charges. The penny auction site had approximately one million investors which bought revenue to the company of roughly over $600 million dollars.

“Ponzi and Pyramid” scheme is what the practices of the company are being called. You can read all about it here:

http://www.sec.gov/news/press/2012/2012-160.htm.

Anytime a network marketing company is exposed for fraud or wrong-doing, it’s a sad day for marketers world-wide. It brings a bad name to the industry as a whole.

A lot of people get sucked into the idea of making easy money with little to no work involved. Some seek out to take the path of least resistance.

I must say that marketing is not a “get rich quick” kind of business. Hard work and dedication is the only way one will succeed and make it in this industry. There is no magic potion to success.

Network marketing can be a joy and profitable, if it is done correctly.

Do your diligent research and you will find that there are tons of legitimate online available business opportunities to join.

Feel free to contact me. Let me know what type of business you’re looking for and I’d be happy to provide a list for you.

Until next time, take care!
