Have you considered what becoming part of the MaryKayInTouch community of independent beauty consultants can do for you?
Mary Kay provides 24 hour access to services and information to help you with the successful running of your Mary Kay Cosmetics business. Not only that but it will put you in touch with some of the most inspiring and like minded business women around.
As an Independent Beauty Consultant for MaryKayInTouch, your main role is to assist women with their beauty needs. With a home based business such as this you will need to make all of your own decisions, so it is really important that you build a strong and reliable client base.
One of the biggest challenges a Mary Kay consultant will face is building a reliable stream of leads in the early days of your business which will give you a better chance of being successful.
There are many tried and tested methods used by MaryKayInTouch consultants to help them build a base of carefully targeted leads.
These methods include doing home networking parties, where you host a party at either a potential client’s house or your own home. You demonstrate the products to the guests in the hope that they will purchase them.
Consultants also cold call in the local neighborhood or offer products to their friends and family so that they can buy them too.
However, it is a competitive market out there and not only will you be competing against other consultants offering a discount who may be based in your area, you will also be competing against rivals from other companies who sell beauty products.
It is important that you expand all possible avenues of marketing strategy for your business. Sure, you can rely on the traditional methods mentioned above, but in order to build a large client base it is important that you explore new marketing methods for yourself.
Using social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter is a great way for you to share your products with more people than you could ever wish to cold call! Recent statistics have claimed that as much as 50% of people’s working day is spent on Facebook.
So search Mary Kay on Facebook then join or create groups to share you products and business opportunities with could help you generate hundreds if not thousands of leads. It will also help you build relationships with people who will then be more likely to buy your products.
Video marketing on sites such as You Tube is another great way of marketing your products. Just record a video of you demonstrating your products, upload it and there you have created a promotional video that anyone can watch, anywhere and at anytime.
For more online marketing ideas you could speak to others in the Mary Kay community or visit the MaryKayInTouch site as this will give you 24hr access to inspiring Mary Kay consultants throughout the world.
Getting free, high quality traffic to your site is very valuable as every webmaster knows. There are tons of methods to gain exposure for your website or blog but nothing compares to the traffic generated from search engines like Google.
In order to speed up the indexing process, go out there and search for do-follow blogs that you can comment on. Make sure the blogs you comment on get updated regularly.
You should be able to find many blogs in your niche that you can comment on. The search engine spiders frequent these blogs so it can help to get your site indexed when you comment with your link on them.
Next, be sure to add blogs to your site because search engines love blogs. No matter how you feel about it blogs are a necessity for staging your sites.
This is important because search engines are constantly seeking new content and blogs offer them exactly that. You can directly ping search engines as you update your blog with quality content letting them know you’ve updated your blog.
Last but not the least have a plan ready. In other words, know exactly what you want to do once your website gets indexed. Not having a plan won’t do your site any good, especially as far as SEO is concerned.
Before your site is indexed, start the off page search engine optimization process such as generating relevant backlinks. Actively pursuing your SEO efforts will give you better results once your site gets indexed.
The goal is more than getting your site indexed with the search engines but to also get it ranked for your targeted keyword.
In conclusion, whether you are an existing Mary Kay rep wanting to expand online, or an mlm-er who wants to increase profits, you can’t ignore the power and potential of the internet.
