Today, I want to teach you how to get more Isagenix customers.
To be frank with you, all businesses need customers. If you’re new to Isagenix, the fastest way to get profitable in your business is to build up a solid customer base of two to ten loyal, repeat customers.
Most people in Isagenix (and the rest of our industry) don’t know how to find and keep customers. They’re simply taught to work their warm market and use the three-foot rule. That approach does work for certain people, but it’s by no means the only way to find customers.
I believe we are all wired differently, and we must learn to use our own natural talents and abilities to build the business in a way that will work for us.
10 Ways to Get More Isagenix Customers
The purpose of this post is to help you think OUTSIDE the box and get creative. I’m going to share 10 ideas to help you get more Isagenix customers. Pick the options that resonate with you the most and focus on them. There’s no need to do all of these things at once.
LEGAL: Please read your Isagenix policies and procedures to make sure that the lead generation strategy you want to use is compliant.
# 1: Create a Paid Referral Program
We all know that referrals are the best source of leads. Everyone wants more referrals. Referrals typically become your best customers.
One of the best ways to get more referrals is to create a PAID REFERRAL PROGRAM. Figure out how much a new retail customer is worth to you financially, and divide that number by two. That is the dollar amount you should pay people for referrals (when the person they refer actually buys from you).
Let everyone you know what you do and tell them you will give them X amount of dollars for each referral they give you who becomes a customer. Even better, put your referral program on a little business card and hand it to everyone you meet. Make sure it explains how and when people get paid, the right way to refer people to you, etc.
This is such a simple way to get a ton of new business. Giving people an incentive (financially) to give you referrals just makes good business sense.
Gaining new customers for your business can be an expensive challenge, but with a referral program it doesn’t have to be. People that have been referred by a peer typically stay loyal to a brand longer than those that found the company by other means. According to Forbes, a study done by Goethe University revealed that customers recommended to businesses were 18% more likely to stay with companies the organization than other customers. The article reiterates, “People tend to have a stronger attachment to an organization if their friends or acquaintances share a bond to the same establishment.” ~ Hubspot
# 2: Hand Out Business Cards
Get a nice, professional looking business card made up and hand out business cards to everyone you meet. Make it a goal to meet five new people every single day and give them one of your business cards.
Keep your business card generic, so it says something like “weight loss coach” or “health coach”. Do not put ISAGENIX on your business card or your Isagenix link. Instead, put a link to a generic capture page or to a recorded 24/7 sizzle call. Curiosity is what sells people, so don’t spill all the beans right out the gate.
Here is a tip that few people talk about.
The primary purpose of a business card is not to make sales. The primary purpose of a business card is to get THE OTHER PERSON’S business card, so you can follow up with them.
Ultimately, you want to exchange business cards with people so YOU can get their contact information, and you are in control of the follow up process.
# 3: Car Magnet
Car magnets or car stickers work great. Once again, do not get an ISAGENIX car magnet or car sticker. Curiosity is what sells. You want you car magnet to say something such as:
- Lose Weight Today!
- Burn the Fat, Get Paid!
- Get Healthy & Wealthy!
- Free Weight Loss Shake!
- Free Weight Loss Consultation!
Or whatever else you can think of. You want to have people call a 24/7 recorded message or visit a capture page to get additional information. These tools will filter out uninterested prospects, which saves you time, money and energy.
You’ve probably seen them everywhere; on top your pizza man’s car, the local electrician’s van door, and perhaps the maid service that comes in to clean your office once each week. Car signs and magnets are everywhere, spreading the name and purpose of small to medium businesses reputably as they dart from one end of town to another. One of the most cost effective types of advertising, these portable signs allow you to advertise your local business across larger distances without paying the high and recurring fees of running a television, radio, or newspaper ad. ~ CarSigns.com
# 4: Join the Gym
Join your local gym. This puts you in close proximity with many other people who are trying to lose weight. While you are at the gym, get to know people. Be friendly. Put your business card or drop card on the bulletin board. Wear a generic weight loss shirt or wear a button that gets people talking to you. If they seem like a good fit, hand them your drop card or business card or ask them for their email or phone number and follow up with them at your convenience.
# 5: Classified Ads
Yes, classified ads still work. Consider posting classified ads in your local paper. Even better, see if you can place a small ad in your church newsletter, your HOA newsletter, or niche publication. Many of these ads cost less than $20. Yes, they still work. It’s just vital that you make it a generic ad and do not say the name Isagenix. As with the other ads, send people to a capture page or sizzle call.
Purchasing classified advertising for your business will typically work out a lot cheaper than buying other media space such as print, radio or TV ads. Some classified sites even allow businesses to advertise for free. With classified advertising, you typically won’t need to spend time creating an ad yourself or pay for the services of a creative agency to make one for you. Placing a classified ad is usually as easy as coming up with some short copy and supplying your contact details. If you want to design a more complex ad, many publications and websites that sell classifieds offer assistance.
# 6: Your Warm Market
This tip sounds boring, but have you really talked with EVERYONE you know? I doubt it. If you were to write down your Facebook friends, phone contacts, email contacts and LinkedIn connections, I could almost 100% guarantee you have at least 2,000 potential people you could contact. I suggest you take the time to revisit your list. Go through each of these platforms and write down your contacts. Add them to your list. After you do that, start reaching out to 10-20 new prospects daily. This is a great way to get more Isagenix customers.
Approaching the people you know to sell them on your new business is extremely difficult. These are people that know you, are familiar with your lifestyle, the car you drive, the house where you live, and the work you do. It is difficult to entice any kind of response from them when you have personally not created the success you would preach them about. You first would need to prove yourself to them before they would take you seriously.
# 7: Drop Cards
This is a simple way to get more Isagenix customers. A drop card is bigger than a business card and slightly smaller than a postcard. It has a simple marketing message on it with a headline, a few bullet points and a call to action. It’s designed to pique your prospect’s interest and get them to visit a website or call a toll free number to learn more information.
Make it a goal to hand out 10 drop cards per day. Whenever you visit a grocery store or gas station, put one on the bulletin board. Whenever you pay your bills, put a drop card in the envelope. Whenever you go out to eat, leave one with your tip (assuming you are a good tipper). Whenever you are at the gym, leave a couple drop cards in the changing room.
This is a simple strategy everyone can use. It probably shouldn’t be your primary strategy to find new customers, but it’s a great way to supplement what you are already doing. Learn more about drop cards.
# 8: Your Personal Story
Your own personal story is your best recruiting and retailing business tool. Have you used the Isagenix products yet? Are you your own best customer? Have you lost a lot of weight? If so, why no write down your story into a short 2-3 paragraphs and put that on your business card or drop card? Your own story can also serve as your Elevator Speech. You can share your story with your new prospects. Remember, facts tell, but stories sell.
Here’s an example. Keep in mind, I made this up just to give you an idea.
I’ve been struggling with my weight for years. I tried every diet you can imagine. I’d lose weight for a few months and then gain it back (and then some). Six months ago I started using the Isagenix products. I’ve now lost 40 pounds, I still eat what I want and I feel so much better about myself. I’m on a mission now to help other people get healthy and feel better about themselves.
# 9: Postcards
I probably shouldn’t share this secret tip, but I’m going to anyway. Postcards are one of my favorite ways to find more retail customers for my MLM Business. Why? People check their mail every day, they are excited to do it, and they normally at least look at their mail before they throw it out. Sending something in the mail is one of the most effective ways to get in touch with someone. Think about how many emails and solicitation phone calls you get per day and compare that to how many postcards you receive. There is no comparision!
Consider sending out a generic weight loss postcard. As always, do not say Isagenix on it. Keep it generic and send people to a free 24/7 voicemail or capture page. After you do that, you can follow up with them and close the sale.
Don’t try to close sales directly from your postcard. You don’t have enough space to provide all the information most prospects need to make a buying decision. Instead, use your postcard to generate sales inquiries.
Begin your postcard by briefly stating the major benefit(s) you offer. Then use the remainder of your postcard to motivate readers to get more information from a source where you can close sales …such as at your web site or from a phone number they can call. ~ BusinessKnowHow.com
# 10: Facebook Live
Facebook live is a wonderful way to find more Isagenix customers. You could make short educational videos about the products. You could review a different product every single day. You could interview people who have lost weight with Isagenix. You could also do educational videos about eating healthy, exercising, staying active, proper nutrition, and countless other ideas. Keep your live streams short and sweet and make them educational and entertaining. Make sure they don’t come across as a sales pitch. Short two to ten minute live streams are the best.
Bonus Tip: The Fish Bowl Technique
One of my favorite ways to get more leads, and find more Isagenix customers and distributors is to use what is known as the “fish bowl technique”. This is when you partner up with a local business and do a raffle for a free product. You leave an empty “fish bowl” on the counter of the business, along with some raffle tickets. People who visit the business can fill out a raffle entry with their contact information and put it in the fish bowl. Each week you can select a winner. Send the winner their free prize and follow up with everyone who entered the raffle to see if they would like to learn more about the products or the business. LEGAL: Just make sure you get the business owner’s permission first.
These are just 10 simple things you can do to find more Isagenix customers. Whatever you do, think outside the box and get creative. You are only limited to your imagination. Realize there are many ways to build your business. Use your ingenuity and special talents and abilities to find a way that works for you.
In summary, if you want to make money with Isagenix the right away, you should build up a solid customer base of two to ten customers. While it’s also important to build up a team of distributors, it’s more important (initially) to find customers who like the products and re-order the products month after month.
I suggest you pick 1-2 methods from my list that resonate with you the most, and focus on those. That’s a lot better than trying too many strategies at once and spreading yourself too thin.
