Many stay at home moms think about getting into network marketing. But what exactly is referral marketing?
It is basically a business model that allows you to earn money on the sales volume they produce as well as on others they bring into the business. Or some moms refer to it as a way of working part-time from home so that you can create a sizable income that continues to come in month after month.
It is a great way for moms to earn a little pocket money without leaving the home.
When you first call and ask someone about their business in the referral marketing field they will usually tell you to attend one of their company’s business presentations. Some feel that it can be a difficult business to get into. When marketing to people you usually get one of several responses. There are some that are receptive and positive, others that are negative and just not interested, and those that have no idea what referral marketing is.
Many people wonder when they join a referral marketing company if it is wise to shop around or not?
Of course when venturing into any new business field it is always wise to shop around for a good sponsor. Not only will they be interviewing you, but you will be checking them out as well. You want to make sure that you feel comfortable with them and are able to work together. You can choose to only speak to them on the phone or meet them in person. Whichever you feel most comfortable with is what you should do.
Some people choose their sponsors based on the results that they have gotten.
Keep in mind that the person does not have to necessarily be where you want to be. But it does have to be someone who is getting results. Someone with a good idea about success will show how successful they are by their actions. When looking for a sponsor you don’t want to look for the one who will cut you the best deal, or even an income earner, but someone who is actively working, and bringing in new people.
You will also want to keep in mind that your sponsor is irrelevant to your success, as long as your team and company are working with a system in place where you can get all the answers to your questions.
A supportive customer service staff, and good training are what you need to assist you in building all areas of your business. The people that you work with are the key to your success. Also make sure that the person you join under can help you get into making a profit the first week you are in business. There is nothing wrong with asking around before you decide to choose a sponsor.
Check credentials thoroughly and remember this is your business not just theirs.
This is a major career decision for any mom or parent to make. In addition there are several things that make a good sponsor. First you need someone that has good business sense. Second, you want someone with a proven success record. Third, you need a person who is willing to support you, and not force you to do things their way. Finally you need someone who will celebrate your success with you. The bottom line is you need someone who not only cares about themselves but about you and the rest of the marketing team.
