I was doing some research on types of marketing and found word of mouth marketing is still the best type. Obviously the best word of mouth advertising is from a satisfied customer. But first you have to win the customers satisfaction.
Word of mouth marketing has the black sheep of a cousin called network marketing. It can work, but it has gotten a bad name from its representatives being too pushy. People hear the word ‘MLM’ or ‘pyramid scheme’ and they run the other way, offended seemingly because someone actually had the nerve to try to make a living by talking to you.
If you just tell the person that you are not interested, they will stop wasting their time with you.
In this time in our economy, with ALL the AMERICANS that do not have a job through no fault of their own, I feel we owe it to them to listen. To keep an open mind about what they are trying to sell.
I will be honest with you, I have a new product to market. But I will not bug or harass people because I got better things to do. And a conscience.
So I am going to tell you about it. I am going to ask you to get it and try it. So try it. Or don’t. But don’t get mad at me for asking you to try it or tell you about it. I am still the same person. Just trying to make a living.
One of my favorite sayings is You always miss 100% of the shots you don’t take. I follow it. So do lots of other people whether they know it or not. Don’t be mad at us for it.
