Attraction Marketing | 3 Mistakes You Don’t Want To Make
Can you really attract people to you online using attraction marketing? The answer of course is yes.
Attraction Marketing: Is the new model for doing business. It leverages the internet and social media to attract interested customers to you instead of you chasing them. This is a very useful way of generating leads for your network marketing business but can also be used for traditional business.
This method allows you to leverage the speed of the internet, it’s cost effective and also the reach is unlimited for finding motivated customers and prospects. You can do this as a part time business.
The first step in attraction marketing is to give your prospects useful information about how to build their business.
Your goal is to become a specialist in a specific marketing method or strategy so you become the go to person.
Here are 3 of the mistakes I see online using attraction marketing methods and how they can be avoided.
Attraction Marketing is a great way to get your prospects to come to you . If you set this up correctly with a self-branding attraction marketing system you will never have to worry about where your leads will come from in the future.
There are some attraction marketing mistakes I’ve noticed people making.
If you’ve made some of these mistakes never fear because I’ve also given you the solution to the problem!
Attraction Marketing Mistake #1
You pretend to have all the answers and set yourself up as an expert before you’re ready.
It’s OK not to have all the answers!
A lot of marketers pretend to be successful and know their stuff when in truth they really don’t. It’s not surprising since many guru’s online teach this tactic.
Honesty is the best policy always!
The premise of attraction marketing is to set yourself up as the expert and a leader.
Many people pretend to be experts when they haven’t done the work and don’t yet have experience.
It is such an exciting idea to have a steady flow of leads coming in on autopilot instead of you chasing them that some marketers forget to check their egos at the door. It’s not about you the marketer making money off of people who are struggling. It’s about helping people who really need solutions to their problems building a business.
Unfortunately in the excitement to capitalize on this type of marketing many people go overboard. Some even live the lifestyle before their success happens. It’s a recipe for disaster. It’s ok to believe in the dream but it’s also a good idea to remain grounded and remain practical.
Do this instead
Admit it when you don’t have the answer!
This goes a long way to building credibility. Believe it or not you can build trust by admitting you don’t have all the answers. Honesty will build a strong foundation which will carry your business into the future.
Develop skills as you grow. As a marketer the more skills you have the more people you can help and the more success you will create. You don’t have to pretend. In fact most people will see through the facade.
Be yourself, you are the brand and you don’t want to tarnish that for any reason.
Attraction Marketing Mistake #2
You subscribe to a system and then find out it doesn’t’ brand you.
There are many mlm attraction marketing systems out there that can help you learn and develop your skills. Part of the allure is the attraction marketing system also furnishes a way to attract and capture leads. The best way to attract leads is to build “You” as the brand.
Be careful which system you choose . Make sure it brands you.
Your long term goal in attraction marketing is to brand yourself and develop a business foundation you can build on for your future.
Do this instead:
The system you subscribe too must be able to brand you and have a customization sales funnel. You want to put your own video and audio into the system. You want freedom to change text and make it your own.
As with all things in life “If it’s worth doing it’s worth doing right.” Take the time to learn how things work. Make sure you are building something that cannot be jeopardized by outside sources. Build “You” the brand and own it.and add to your skill set as you go.
BIG TIP: Be dedicated to learning attraction marketing strategies.
Prospects are very knowledgeable in today’s online market. So look sharp and learn as much as you can.
Video is the quickest way to make an impression and helps your prospect make the decision to give you their contact information. Show confidence in the things you know and are good at. Offer value packed information with you own personal flavor.
Video allows your prospects to hear your voice and see you in action. This goes beyond any other marketing method for building your brand, establishing trust.
If you’re scared of video. Start slow but keep going until you become more comfortable because I promise you it will get easier.
We are all unique in our own way and there’s plenty of people looking for information and help with their home based business. Remember the failure rate in network marketing is a whopping 97% .
Attraction Marketing Mistake #3
You give up before you reach your goals.
It takes time to build a business online. Unfortunately many people buy into the dream of supersonic speed in success working from home. Most people want it but they don’t know what it takes to achieve it. After a few failures they quit.
Online network marketing is not a get rich quick proposition. It takes time, dedication and staying power. Most people quit before they see results. They think they are a failure because they didn’t get rich in the first few months.
Do this instead
Read about network marketing before you join a company. There are some great books out there that outline the trials and tribulations of building a successful home based business. One of my favorite’s is ” Beach Money” by Jordan Adler. He was in 11 different companies before he finally figured out what it really takes to be a success in network marketing.
Set realistic expectations.
Know it will take some time. It could take as much as 3 to 5 years with consistent effort.
Learn how to stay motivated by setting goals and practicing positive mindset techniques;
It’s ok to get excited about your new business in fact it’s mandatory but soon the new shiny wears off, then what. You must find ways to keep going and it all boils down to your mindset and belief in yourself. Read my blog post here on mindset.
