How to Upgrade Happy Customers Into MLM Distributors
One of the smartest things you can do in your network marketing business is upgrade your happy customers into distributors. I personally believe that happy customers make great distributors. Customers who “fall in love” with the company’s products become product advocates and naturally want to share them with others.
Listed below, I want to share some of my best tips on how to upgrade your happy customers into distributors.
First off, never pressure anyone into becoming a distributor. You want and NEED customers. A customer provides you a retail profit and requires a lot less coaching, training, mentoring and babysitting than a distributor does. If someone just wants to remain a customer, be grateful, and meet them where they are at.
That being said, many happy customers will naturally want to recommend the products or services to others, and eventually build a business of their own. The real key to success is “never rush it or pressure them.” Sometimes, someone will be a customer for several YEARS before they make the decision to be a distributor. Let them “make a decision” in their own time.
I suggest you stay in touch with each customer once a month, find out what products they like the most, and show them how simple it would be to save money as a wholesale buying distributor. You could also show them how simple it would be to make enough money to get their products for free each month.
Also, you can offer to place anyone they refer to you ON THEIR TEAM, so they get paid from it. That is what I have found to be the most effective. If one of your customers is already giving you referrals, offer to do that for them.
You could also offer a customer a position in one of your power legs (depending on your company and compensation plan). This fear of loss is a great motivator to get them to upgrade.
Once a customer has ordered for three consecutive months, ask them if they want to upgrade their membership to a distributor. Once again, do not pressure them, but let them know what is available. Some customers will take advantage of the opportunity to save additional money on their purchases, and even make money. If they say NO, thank them anyway and be grateful you have them as a customer.
There you have it folks. These are some simple things you can do to upgrade your happy customers into distributors. What are your thoughts? Leave a comment below to let me know what you think. I look forward to hearing from you.
