Direct Sales and Network Marketing With Social Media

Social media and networking sites like Facebook and Twitter have dramatically influenced online home business network marketing and direct sales. These powerful and dynamic outlets have added new, cost free ways to reach potential customers and to capitalize on expanded listings of your products, business and opportunities. Promoting, network marketing and direct sales, using social media sites, can prove to be very effective, no cost techniques to improve the visibility and recognition of your business, products and opportunities.

Potential customers are now using these social media and social networking sites to conduct business, opportunity and product research; to locate experienced references and to pursue first hand consumer recommendations. This translates into an incredible opportunity for reputable business owners to get unlimited exposure.

Your best bet, as a retailer, wholesaler or seller, is to develop a relationship with your potential customer, first. That is what these social media sites are all about. Developing relationships. I am not suggesting that you need to find a new best friend. But, a recognizable friendship will benefit you, big time, when it comes time for your sales pitch. Avoid blanketing your new acquaintance with impersonal sales pitches, in the beginning. Consumers do not make purchases from faceless companies or factories. People make purchases from other people. Their purchases are based on emotions and not on practicality. So, if you have already developed a friendly relationship with your potential customer, and they like you personally – when it comes time to make a purchase, it will be more likely to happen through you.

Remember, strategically network and develop friendships with new potential customers first, then market products and work from home business opportunities to them, later on. I Hope this brief article helps. Looking forward to connecting with you.
