If you’re like most Herbalife distributors, you aren’t doing very well with your business. And the primary reason for that is because you don’t have enough retail customers. Customers are the lifeblood of your business. They give you immediate profit, help you meet volume requirements, and even provide residual income.
While many Herbalife distributors focus just on recruiting distributors, I’m a big fan of the customer approach myself. After all, why not have 10 to 100 personal customers? Heck, you could build a full-time income without recruiting any distributors! How much could you make per month with 50 to 100 personal retail customers? Do you think you could make $2 to $4k per month with 50 to 100 customers? I bet you could.
To help you solve that problem, I want to share ten tips to get more Herbalife customers. These tips are listed in no particular order.
The first thing I recommend you do is start your own blog or website. You could create a weight loss blog where you share your weight loss journey or teach people how to lose weight. You wouldn’t need to mention the name Herbalife anywhere on your blog either. You would simply focus on educating people about losing weight and then get them to contact you and reach out to you to learn what you do and recommend. Or, you could get them to opt-in to your email list and then tell them about the products by email.
In home parties are a great way to get new Herbalife customers. You could invite over 5-10 friends and do a party at your house. From there you can book in home parties with excited guests and branch off from there. The beauty of doing in home parties is that you can share the products to a group of people at once. This creates excitement and lets you work smart by leveraging your time. These products are great for the party-plan.
3. Share Catalogs with Friends and Family
Another simple thing you can do to get more Herbalife customers is to share catalogs with friends and family members. Order 10 catalogs and then share them with everyone you know. Make sure you follow up with the person promptly to answer their questions and take their order.
4. Create a Referral Program
Another way to get more Herbalife customers is to create a referral program. You could offer someone a free product for anyone they recommend who becomes a customer of yours. Or, you could offer them a cash incentive or gift card. Find out what they want and give it to them, if they send you new customers. Treat people well and you can have endless referrals.
5. Wear the Button
Mark Hughes was right when he talked about wearing the button. This is quite perhaps the easiest way to get new Herbalife customers. Wear the Herbalife button whenever you are out and about. People will ask you about it. Just have a simple response you can use to answer their question. Be sure to give them a business card and get their contact information, too.
6. Direct Mail
Direct mail is still a very effective way to find customers for any type of business. You could use a simple postcard or sales letter. You could buy a targeted mailing list for people looking to lose weight and go from there. Without mentioning the name Herbalife on your postcard, you could offer a free product sample or free 15-minute phone consultation about losing weight.
Fliers still work. Lots of people have achieved success with fliers. Your key to success is to hand out lots of fliers in areas where your “ideal prospect” will be. Look for places where people who are trying to lose weight like to hang out and focus on those areas exclusively. This includes gyms, food stores, wellness clinics, etc.
8. Attend Networking Events
Networking events are a great way to meet new Herbalife customers. Just focus on building a relationship and getting to know the other person a bit before you start talking about your products.
While most people don’t enjoy doing this, prospecting does work. Most of us come in contact with hundreds of potential Herbalife customers each day. It’s up to us to put a smile on our face, stick out our hand and introduce ourselves to the other person. Talk to two people a day to keep the blues away!
10. Newspaper Advertising
Don’t overlook advertising in your local newspaper. This is a simple, effective and low cost way to find new customers. You could advertise something weight loss related to get people to call you. All you have to do is follow up with the people who call. Learn how to use classified ads the right way.
If you are serious about your Herbalife business, you need to have retail customers (lots of them). This allows you to create immediate profits in your business. I believe it’s a lot easier to find customers than it is to go out and sponsor distributors.
By following my top 10 tips to get more Herbalife customers, you should get much better results in your business. Please know that not every technique will work with every person. Your key to success is to pick one or two methods that work for you and then take massive action. By doing so, you will acquire lots of Herbalife customers.
