Free Network Marketing Information-These Two Things Are Overated!

Now and again, I like for my free network marketing information tips to come from Tom, Big Al, Schreiter. He always has something interesting to say!

Today, we're gonna learn why these two actions that distributors do are really overated!

Cash incentives and prizes ... overrated!

You want your incentives to:

1. Motivate.
2. Be remembered.

When you use a cash incentive, that may be motivating, but it won't be remembered if it is spent to pay down a credit card bill. It will be forgotten just a few weeks later.

So how can we make our incentives better?

How can we personalize our incentives to inspire people to act?

Here are three quick incentive ideas to spark your imagination.

Example #1:

Distributor Joe knows that John and Mary should be at the next big Saturday training event. Mary is hesitant until Distributor Joe arranges a "maid for a day" to completely clean Mary's house. Total cost is only $60. Mary is thrilled with the maid and can't wait to sit back and enjoy the training.

What if John was hesitant instead? Distributor Joe could arrange a "handyman for a day" to do fix-ups and repairs around the home that John has been avoiding for years.

Example #2:

Distributor Joe knows that the local Marriott Hotel caters to business travelers and has many empty rooms on weekends. The hotel offers a "honeymoon special" for only $99 on weekends. A couple gets dinner and a room for Saturday night, champagne breakfast in bed, and can dance and enjoy the luxury hotel's services.

What a great romantic gift to remind a new distributor of the lifestyle and time with the family. Perfect for a sign-up incentive. And, this incentive will be remembered :)

Example #3:

Mini-cruise. There are several 3, 4, and 5-day cruises that cost barely more than a hotel stay. For some people, the anticipation of their first cruise is almost as much fun as the experience. And everyone remembers their first cruise. So when they look back on the cruise, they remember you for making it possible.

Bottom Line:

People really don't want money. They want what money can do. Be creative and make your incentive something inspiring and something they will remember for a long, long time.
