Help! I can’t make sales!!
This was a forum post in SFI a few years back, but is still relevant for a large majority of SFI Affiliates.
Good morning SFI friends!
I am passionate internet sales, and for many years I tried to sell according to the basic marketing method SFI. Logging into TripleClicks.com, SFI Toolbox, copy and paste my link emails, social media posts, etc. I could not sell anything. Maybe there is something wrong in my ID SFI, or haven’t applied the right strategy to sales? Thanks in advance and best Regards!
Here is my response:
You have opened up a subject very important for all SFI Affiliates.
How can I earn a commission if no one is buying and spending money??
The truth is: People ARE spending money online, they just haven’t established a “trust” connection with you in order for them to open up their wallet and buy something you’re promoting!
The real question should be . . .
. . . How do I effectively promote and sell SFI and TripleClicks products??
It is very easy to assume you can earn a good living/commission promoting products on Facebook or another social media to your family, friends, and connections.
Unfortunately, reality does NOT support this! This is your “soft market” and after a few promotions, they will tend to ignore you and wish you to go away. I have been trying to “sell” to my soft market for over 6 years now in many ways, and have found very little success. There are ways to make it work, but you have to be very patient and careful NOT to create walls between yourself and family members.
Now, what I have found is a much better way, but it also involves learning, implementing and engaging in methods and strategies beyond merely posting ads on social media.
Here’s a much better approach . . .
1. Learn how (yes, you’ll have to learn something new!) to set up a simple website where you can post promotional material about certain SFI or TC products.
Create simple review videos of products you identify with and post them in a blog post style. In addition, create simple product pages promoting a category of products which may appeal to a certain clientele.
Then . . . work on getting either free or paid traffic to these web pages.
2. In the process of doing #1, create a way to “capture names and email addresses” by which you begin to create your own following or your own buyers list. Once this happens, you have a ready-made audience who you can begin a relationship with, who will eventually know, like, and trust you. From this you can email special promotions, product reviews, personal recommendations and other offers.
3. Once you have a list established, you can then begin to point your social media connections to your website, which will also give you enormous credibility as well as “eyes on your offers and products.”
4. When it comes to getting “traffic,” (this is visitors to your promotion pages, landing capture pages, squeeze pages, or special video promo pages) you need to become very proficient. For what good is the greatest product on earth if no one knows about it??
Traffic is a high priority for every serious online marketer and you would do well to learn how to master it!
So, in review, there are four things I really harp on with my SFI Affiliates: Platform (SFI and TC), Autoresponders, Websites/Landing Capture Pages, and Traffic.
Best of luck to you – keep educating, engaging, and expanding your online skills and marketing methods and you will begin to see it happen for you! 🙂
