There are different strategies on how to market your products or recruit people Online ranging from the simplest act of posting on your social media status to an advance way of running billion naira Advertisments on different Online platforms.

Irrespective of the strategy you intend to use, the name of the game is result. Whether you are promoting your products by chatting Prospects individually on social media platforms or you are running a none stop Advertisments all I'll say is that you should Identify what works for you and stick with it.

In my articles, I always like going straight to the point and this article won't be different.

I'll explain the simplest strategy you can use in selling your products regularly or recruiting Prospects into your network marketing team with your mobile phone.

This may not be the best strategy for you but I guarantee you that if you followed this strategy you will be selling your products or recruiting prospects regularly.

There are only 3 things you need to do inorder to make this happen.


1) Create a WhatsApp group

2) Get Interested people to the WhatsApp group

3) Stay committed with presentation


Keep calm... I know you have seen or heard about something like this before and I know that probably you may have implemented this strategy before. 

Like it's always said  "it's not really about what you do but it's how you do what you do".

Two people can apply the same strategy but end up having different results this is because it's basically about their intentions behind what they are doing.

Intention is based on understanding.

I'll quickly explain to you how this strategy works so that you understand it in a different way.


A) CREATE A WHATSAPP GROUP 

like I said initially that the name of the game is result. Inorder for anyone to buy what you are selling, the person has to see what you are selling over and over again and a WhatsApp group can help you achieve this. 

This is the first step in this strategy. When it concerns  selling anything online with your mobile phone you need to understand that there are a thousand and one strategies but the simpler the strategy, the better it is.

Below is how you create a WhatsApp group


INCASE YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO CREATE A WHATSAPP GROUP HERE'S A SIMPLE GUIDE.

Kindly open your WhatsApp and click the three dots at the top right side




Next click on new group




Next Select participants ( you can add up to 511 people to a particular group)





After selecting your participants, Click the arrow at the bottom right.



Name your group, upload your group image. Then click the icon at the bottom right to create the group.





B) GET PEOPLE TO JOIN YOUR WHATSAPP GROUP

1) CONTACT LIST

The first step by which you can get people into your WhatsApp group is to add them to your group. There's an option on WhatsApp that permits you to add up to 511 participants to your group. This people's contact must be saved in your phone.

2) PAID ADVERTISMENTS

This is another method of getting potential customers or Prospects into your WhatsApp group. Here you will run a paid advert on any of the online platforms e.g Facebook, Instagram, Google, YouTube e.t.c and direct them to your WhatsApp group. You can do this yourself or get someone to do it for you.


3) MANUAL ONLINE ADVERTISMENTS

Direct people from your social media handles or other online channels to your WhatsApp group: This is another way you can get people into your WhatsApp. You can share your WhatsApp group link on your online platforms e.g Facebook ( profile, groups and pages), Instagram, tiktok, Twitter, telegram, email e.t.c and invite them to join and learn about your business. This should be done in a professional way.


4) INVITE PEOPLE FROM YOUR BLOG TO JOIN YOUR WHATSAPP GROUP:

One way you can get people into your WhatsApp group so that you sell to them is from your blog.

This strategy is for bloggers mostly article bloggers. You can generate unlimited leads from the search engine. Thousands of people are searching for your products on Google, you can position yourself for these people and direct them to join your WhatsApp group for further explanation about your product.


5) CONNECT WITH PEOPLE PHYSICALLY

Even if you are selling your products online it doesn't prevent you from connecting people offline and adding them to your WhatsApp group. 

Almost everyone with a mobile phone has WhatsApp chat application installed in it. If you come across someone who is interested in your product, you can request to add him or her to your WhatsApp group inorder for the person to stay updated about your product. 

If you decided to inform everyone you meet about what you sell, 5 out of 10 people you introduce your products to will be interested in joining your WhatsApp group to stay updated.



C) STAY COMMITTED AND CONSISTENT WITH PRESENTATION

Everything about Online selling is mostly about your mindset than your strategies. Like I wrote at the beginning of this training, there are different strategies you can use in selling your products or recruiting prospects online and different online marketers are using all these strategies and experiencing different results in their business. 

Strategies are great but your mindset is the determining factor in your success.

This final step is about commitment and consistency

It's not enough to direct or add People to your WhatsApp group it's very necessary to stay committed and consistent in exposing them to your product and how it can benefit them.

Buyers hardly make instant buying decision this is because they are always careful with making wrong decision. Your duty is to continue showing them why they need to get the product. Commitment and patience can't be overemphasize in relation to selling.

THINGS YOU SHOULD DO TO STAY COMMITTED AND CONSISTENT WITH PRESENTING YOUR BUSINESS IN YOUR WHATSAPP GROUP


1) DISCOVER YOUR WHY:   Your why is one of the key things that will keep you committed to doing your work. If you don't know why you are selling your products, it's very easy to give up.

Your why is simply your reasons for selling your product/s 

Here are some reasons you may want to consider.

1) you want to make money so that you by food for yourself and your family.

2) you want to generate money to build a house for yourself.

3) you prefer doing your personal business to working on a job. 

4) you prefer time and choice freedom to someone else controlling your time.

5) you have great goals that can only be achieved through business.

6) you want to generate money for your wedding that is coming up two years from now.

7) you really want people to benefit from your products.

E.t.c

There's always an underlying reason for building your business. your ability to discover that or those reasons in detailed will help you stay committed.


2) UPGRADE YOUR SKILLS: Another way to stay committed to your WhatsApp presentation is to keep on learning about your business or Products. Irrespective of the type of business or product you sell, there are always new things to learn. Focus on learning new things about your business and you will remain excited and committed. 


3) HAVE ANOTHER SOURCE OF INCOME

If you expect to use the income you get from your newly established business to pay bills, you are likely to be disappointed because the money won't come as fast as you want it to. as a result of this you may be discouraged and less committed because you will always be emotionally attached to the outcome.

Promoting your products or business opportunities on WhatsApp requires commitment, consistency and it shouldn't be done with any emotional attachment to the outcome. Your duty isn't to convince anyone to buy or join your business, your duty is to direct or add people to the WhatsApp group and keep on presenting to them. When you have another source of income, you will be able to do this without pressuring anyone or yourself.


In conclusion: There are different strategies of selling online using your mobile phone but this strategy in my opinion is the simplest because anyone can use it with great result. Also, it doesn't require any advance technical skill before it can be used. If you focused on this alone and ignore all other internet tactics that will get you busy without any results, you will be far ahead in your business.

Your networking strength is simply the approach  you enjoy building your network marketing business with. In one of my previous post I mentioned that I categorize networking strength into online strength and offline strength.

I explained about them in detail. If you didn't read that post Kindly check here.


Just incase you didn't read that post, let me quickly explain how you can know if you have an offline networking strength.


Here are different ways to know if your network marketing strength is offline.


A) EXTROVERT: An extrovert is someone that gains energy when he is with other people. An extrovert is the opposite of an introvert.

If you are an extrovert there's this possiblity that you have an offline networking strength because you will be able to connect physically  with your prospects which is what you naturally love doing.


B) RECRUITING: A networker who is an extrovert will recruit more people easily offline than online. Some networks that are extroverts see online prospecting as a total waste of time and they have never recruited any prospect online , they only function best offline.


C) OLDER GENERATION: If you were born before the digital era there's a possibility that your networking strength is offline. But, it's not always in all ramifications because I've seen some older generations building great organization online. 

Nevertheless, most older generation networkers have an offline networking strength.



D) PHILOSOPHY: your philosophy can equally make you to have an offline networking strength. For example if you believe that it's more stressful to recruit online, you will only focus on prospecting and recruiting offline even without trying the online approach before.



Below is a strategy for offline networkers. Like I always say , you may want to change this strategy to suit your schedule.



#1) PROSPECT DAILY: Prospecting is simply collecting contact info from your target audience. Your duty as an offline networker is to decide on the number of prospects you have to be collecting contact information and follow through.




#2) INVITATION: This is a process of informing and scheduling your prospect to check out your product, business opportunity or service. You should be inviting 5 to 10 prospects either daily or weekly depending on your business target. 

You can invite your prospect to attend your offline/online seminar, watch your business explanation video e.t.c. please note that invitation is different from presentation. Don't explain your business during invitation.



#3)PRESENTATION: This is a situation where a prospect sees everything about your business. 

If you have a personal offline seminar Centre, 2 to 3 times presentations weekly is better while you use other days for invitation. But if you don't have a personal seminar centre, ensure that your prospects are available during the general house presentation.  

You may equally do a one on one or a two on one presentation. 

My advice is to try different types of offline presentations and see which one works best for you.


#4) CLOSING: After presenting your business to your prospects, you need to encourage them to join your opportunity or buy the product. 

There are different trainings on how to close  prospects you may want to check out books, audios and video trainings on closing to be really good at handling different objections and closing like a pro. 

But my opinion is that once you have done a great presentation closing should flow naturally if you are presenting to the right Prospect.


#5) FOLLOW UP: Following up a prospect is simply a means of reminding a prospect about the presentation he/she saw. After presentation, some people will need time to decide. Such prospects need to be followed up until they decide to join or ask you not to contact them again.

You can do this actively or passively. 

This means few days after your prospect might have seen your business presentation, you should reach back to the person and directly ask them about their decision towards the business. 

This is active follow up. 

In passive follow up, you don't have to say anything about your business, you may just ask the person about their family and Job behind this questions they will remember your business. 

Follow up is necessary because it's at this point that you can expose your Prospects to new facts about your products or opportunity, address different  objections and sell more.



#6) PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT & TEAM TRAINING: Every entrepreneur ought to be developing themselves and their teams on a regular basis. 

It's advisable that apart from your regular weekly presentations, you should assign days for training your team members. Not only will this give them ideas on how to build their business, it will equally build close relationship, unity and togetherness in the team. 

Remember that building a network marketing team is more of the level of relationship you have with your members. 


Bonus tip

As an offline networker, you need to have your personal seminar centre where you invite people to and conduct presentations. You should organize road shows and share flyers. You should Advertise on radio stations, news papers and local clubs in your community. The more people you are able to reach, the faster your team will grow.
