    Hello guys,I would like to know your opinion about an subject called MLM (Multi Level Marketing)
    For those who have some experience in this field or who have/had a business on his own,how can I improve my business,to make it more known,to get more clients in the area that I live.
    I mean I am improving my business by using my costumer,and I try to satisfy them in order to get more refferals,using my products.
    Another way that I am using is to leave some personalized cards,about me and my business,when I am going around and speak about my business,I always leave them my cards.
    I also let some of my cards in stores,in order to get more people to join my MLM Business or to describe my product in order to satisfy their needs.

    How else can I improve my business,what other methods can I use?

    Well my business is in the Lifestile industry,we distribute generaly perfumes,we have the same supliers for products like D&G,Armani,Gucci,Lacoste ,ecc.(I am talking about perfumes).
    It is a very easy business,and easy to manage,because your business is just to build pipes(sponsorize new people that want to join your company using the MLM sistem) and promote your products to the market.
    It is easy,because you do not have to prove to something your products,because they are alwready known all over the world.
    And all the people know's their perfumes.

    My reason for this topic,was to find out new strategies,from people that already have an experience in this field or have his own business,in order to build an successful MLM business.
    I will apreaciate some new ideas that could help me,and everyone who is interested on this subject.

    By the way the company is called FM World.

    Bocacristian the first step in getting referrals from your existing customers is to ask them for those referrals. Ask if they know anyone that might be interested in your products. If they can give you contact details, that's great. If they'd prefer not pass on contact details to you, give them some promotional materials and a website address, to pass on to their friends.

    Is there any incentive that you can offer your customer, in return for people they refer to you?

    This thread outlines an approach that might work for you Easy affiliates?

    Does that help at all?

    Hi!
    It totally depends on your products and services. I myself starting a small business of home care services. Is there anybody else to suggest me on this topic. Any suggestion would be much important for me.

    The best strategy
    Use the product and describe it how it works for you.
    I know some of my friends that are very highly successful in mlm business . It seems they use the product, and endorse it.

    I think that using such cards for your business improving is not very effective. I suggest you to make some advertisement trough the Internet, because there are more potential customers there nowadays. Hope it will help you.

    As I understand, this is an offline business?
    In my opinion, offline MLM's are getting harder to build, mainly due to market saturation, MLM bad reputation and customer awareness.
    But you can give a try and spend more (both time and money) on your marketing plan and strategies.

    Good Luck!

    Hi all, I do also agree with roger, the way he told is superb in fact and I think all the steps he told are right except the 8th step of improving customer service ,I think it should happened much earlier and then get feedback from customers. Good communication from the clients and the quality of services are the two essential things in corporate.
