So it seems there is a bit of a trend going on with Fiitfu, the more you Fiitfu the more your business grows, the more your business grows the more you earn! The more you earn the easier it is to keep the motion moving forward...
So we decided to run a contest about being Fiitfu'd... read a couple of these first and then we will tell you about the contest.
Here are a couple of TRUE "I've Been FIITFU'd" stories:
"I have been looking at this overdue client on my Fiitfu account for three days, I finally called her (the client) and I got a $500.00 ORDER! Thank you Fiitfu for the system really does work."
Fiitfu reminds a user that one of her clients is due to renew her product:
On 2013-05-31, at 11:12 AM Fiitfuer wrote to client "Hi Melanie, I was thinking of you and wanted to pop you a quick email. How are you and your products doing?"
Email back from client to FIITFUER "I swear that there are alarms on my product that go to you!!! I just pumped my last pump of moisturizer today and am getting caught up on emails!! Maybe I should just order the set? Thanks. "
Third story... and I think you get the picture:
On Sun, Apr 21, 2013 at 10:41 AM Fiitfuer wrote: "Hello Bridgette (not real name) I am going to be ordering myself some products today or tomorrow... Just thought I would see if you needed anything!"
Email back from customer " You are kind of freaky (in a good way!) I JUST ran out of toner this AM ....!! I think all other bottles are about half full.....or is it better to get the set now?!"
Each day we must show courage to protect ourselves, to teach our children right from wrong and to go with your heart when those around you think you may be crazy.... (I am sure many of you have heard "Oh that won't work, I know someone who...")
Courage is more than heroic things that give us accolades, it is the ability to navigate and deal with the every day challenges that we face.
Cynthia Pury, Ph.D., associate professor of psychology at Clemson University, who studies courage says "courage requires people who are motivated by a clear goal or sense of duty to take a personal risk though the outcome of their actions remains uncertain".
Here are a few tips to help you with staying Courageous today!
- Have a clear Goal and Stay Focussed on this goal!
- Be prepared for what some of the possible outcomes may be. What could be the WORST case scenerio and then work towards the BEST case scenerio... often the Worst case scenerio isn't actually all that bad.
- Take baby steps each day, the fear may never go away, however with continued acts towards your goal it will get easier!
- Surround yourself with like minded people. This often helps you realize you are not alone in your endeavor to reach your goals! We all have to be courageous.
- Stay away from those that try to bring you down... The crab in the bucket syndrome... as you climb to the top the "crabs" will grab at you and pull you right back down. "If I can't have it, neither can you".
- Have fun along the way. Remember, failure or setbacks along the way are just learning curves... the more you try, the closer you get even with set-backs!
Be sure you figure out exactly what it is you want. WHY do you want it, and how can you get it.
If you REALLY want something, you will know how passionate you are to get it by the sacrifices you take to earn it. Know that sacrifices must be made, but if you really want something, won't it be a simple decision to make? If it is easy to give up, you probably didn't want it that bad.
Last week my daughter and I were looking through her new “Just Between Friends” book and I had to laugh at all the fun projects in the book, many of which I remembered as a child! Instructions on learning piglatin, making pull tab notes, secret hand shakes and other secret languages.
One thing that I did not learn as a kid, and still haven’t learnt them all as an adult are the new EMOTICONS... did you even know what that word meant?

Yes it is true that the trend of purchasing online is rising all the time. The ease of shopping from home in your PJ's if you like is drawing more and more people to pulling out their credit cards at midnight while they have a rest from the pitter patter of kids running around.
That is a GREAT thing for those of you in Network Marketing and Direct Sales, BUT it does NOT MEAN that you can give up following up with your clients and creating ongoing relationships even with the web based buyers!
A Traditional Shopping story: The Blushing Boutique is a quaint little store in downtown Vancouver that Designer Shelley Klassen opened to not only design, but as well produce and sell her collection in.
Each time you enter the store, the staff is incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. They find out what you may be looking for, what you do, where you are going, what your favorite colors are and help you determine which of their line would best suite your body type.
While you try on the clothing, they are VERY honest with how it looks on you, good and bad. But when it looks good, boy you feel like a MILLION BUCKS!
When you feel that way, and you feel like you have been dealt with honestly doesn't it feel great? Not only do I usually walk out buying something at her store each time I go in, BUT I also walk away feeling beautiful, well looked after and purchasing a few extra things I didn't even realize that I needed!
Without a skip of a beat, the team is creating a relationship with me. Now knowing that I could also purchase their products on line, I would be more inclined to want to purchase their products over another because "I LIKE THEM"!
Relationships build trust, trust builds sales... sales grow your bottom line.
This past week the DSWA (Direct Selling Women's Alliance) posted these statics on their facebook page:
Being an entrepreneur definitely has it's benefits. Work the hours you want, be your own boss, work in your pj's if you really feel inclined...
But there seems to be more to it. Being an entrepreneur challenges you to stay authentic to who you are, work on what you believe in and sharing your knowledge for the greater good of many.
So when it comes to working on your own, and being true to who you are, you may not always have the back up of others around you. No one will think 100% like you do, and as an entrepreneur it becomes easy to second guess if you are doing the right thing or not.
Follow up can be easy if you just keep calm...
Here are 5 Tips on Keeping Calm and Following Up.
WE LOVE TESTIMONIALS...
I am sure you do as well, it is always a great idea to share the testimonials that you receive from your clients with new potential clients... (A great reason to follow up with a new client hint hint)
HOW CAN YOU TRACK YOUR TESTIMONIALS? - One of the ideas that we are sharing with our Fiitfu customers is to create an interest that is "TESTIMONIALS"
When you do this, you can track anyone that has ever sent you a testimonial, and record the date in which they sent you the email (or when you spoke with them). You can then simply go back to your journal entries on that date to find the testimonial!
A quick search under clients, with the selection of testimonials will pull up all past testimonials that you have received.
If someone calls you, and leaves you a message, do you listen to the message first or simply re-dial the number and try to contact the person that just spent the time to leave you a message?
UUUGGHHH don’t do it! Listen to your messages first, find out what their needs, wants or questions are so that you can have an answer or idea when you call…
Don’t waste your client's time, if someone has taken the time to leave a message, listen to it! In this day and age of so much text and email, consider it a compliment when someone takes the time to call and actually leave you a message!
Last week we did a webinar to highlight the top 5 must haves for effective follow up… I thought you may all be interested in knowing what these are!
Here is a quick snap shot of the things you MUST have to be effective in follow up besides a great CRM like Fiitfu.
